    Didn't fit

    This bra is pretty and well made, but unfortunately creates a less than flattering shape. It doesn't lift at all, it's just kind of... there. It pushes my breasts down and slightly to the sides -- the same problem I had with the Panache Porcelain! You can see that bra and review here: http://www.bratabase.com/browse/panache/porcelain-molded-seamless-underwire-3376/28E/

    Originally I tried the 28E in this, and the cups were slightly loose so I thought this one would be a perfect fit. However, this one is too tight in the cups. Also, the cups are too far apart, which contributes to the odd shape. They ... are 1.1" apart, whereas all my other bras in this size range are 0.7 - 0.9" apart. I did have a pucker at the center edges of the cups, as the 30D reviewer complained about (it's visible in my photos). This could be a symptom of the cups being too far apart as well.

    I guess this brand isn't for me, which is odd, because I have a Cleo bra that I love, and that is made by Panache. If I could just combine the fit (sizing) of Panache with the gravity-defying lift of Fantasie and the style of Freya, I'd have the perfect bra. Oh well.

    The cups of this bra are very low-cut. The seams are bound and non-irritating. The band, instead of being powernet or mesh like most bras, is a lightweight (almost sheer, but still firm) spandex with a shimmer to it... cool.

    Color is "Chilli." Purchased from Figleaves, late Spring 2010.

    • It probably doesn't fit you that great because you're wearing it too low. Notice the baggy area in the bottom of the cup and the taught fabric at the top of the cup in the second picture? (Left Side shot) If this was lifted at the correct position on your ribcage it would most likely eliminate both of those problems. Perhaps try a larger band size instead. Too small of a band will cause it to sit low and make the bottom of the cup too loose with the top being too tight.

    • hlaleo, I have to politely disagree with you on this one. The wrinkling at the bottom of the cup on the left side is due to that side being about 1/4 cup size smaller than the other. You can see from the right side shot that the right cup fits and is at the correct spot (no wrinkling at the bottom). The only way to eliminate the wrinkling on the bottom left would be to wear the bra crooked -- I have this problem with almost every bra I own; in fact, you can see it in some of my other pictures on Bratabase.
      The band was the correct size. It sat perfectly level all the way around (again, you can see this in both side shots), and the center gore sat flat against my breastbone. I still think the weird shape was due to the cups being just a hair too far apart, and also the fabric being a bit too soft for support.

    • 1

      Not to be a pest, but it looks like both cups have wrinkling in the bottom, one definitely more than the other though. I do see now what you mean about it sitting crooked, I didn't notice that before. That can be remedied by tightening the strap for the smaller breast, or in the case of Scoliosis - the lower shoulder. As for the band, even if it's too small, it can sit level across the chest but the underwires will not be directly under the breast tissue and it causes the breasts to be pulled down. A good rule of thumb for where the center, or fullest, part of your bust should be is halfway between the top of your shoulder and crease of your elbow. If it's below that, the support is off. Just some helpful hints. If it's not needed, no worries =)

    • Thanks, I do appreciate it! :-) I'm a big advocate of proper bra fit. I am going to use your suggestions and play around with a couple of the bras I have, just to see if I can indeed get them to sit better.

    28D

    Didn't fit

    This bra did not fit me, clearly. I'll do my best to comment on aspects other than the fit.
    The band is a good fit, I'd say it's squarely in the 28 category, so no need to size up or down. It's a little stretchy but the elastic is firm, and I had to really pull to get my stretched measurement. The straps are fully adjustable, for those of you who need it. The bra is really not the most charming thing I've ever owned, but the seams and embroidery are rather flat, and this comes in about a million colors, so it's a good candidate for an everyday ... bra. I find the mesh in the wings a bit thin (it's probably prone to emphasizing back fat, even if there isn't much to speak of). The mesh of the cups is really sturdy, though, with zero stretch at all. Actually, the comfort issue I had with the cups is that the seams are pressed to the inside, but the cup is single-layered. While they try to remedy discomfort with a strip of fabric over the seams, the edges of that really sturdy mesh are not completely covered and I found that they were very itchy.
    Now, my one comment on fit: This being Panache, the wires are somewhat wide (which I like), but contrary to most of their other styles, the cups here are very deep. To top it off, the top of the cups closes up pretty fast. It's not a look that I can fill out, and even more, it's not the type of plunge that will give lots of cleavage (especially in this size). Just be aware of that if you're thinking of buying.

  3. Yeah. This bra was too small in the band and the wires hurt me extremely. When I added an (homemade) extender, the cups become a little too big, but wires were ok and didn't leave me those marks (last time I've got them for more than 2 days, now they are normal and disappear quickly). So I added a hook to the straps and this is it! The uplift is incredible! The fabric wrinkles a little but there is no empty space - this is because the cups are not meant to be this way. It gives me great uplift and is really comfy, though It 'wants' ... to be straight even when I wear it at an angle - after some moves the wires are at equal height and one boob flies above as usual. However it is really supportive for this higher one too.

    I feel the tension on my trapezius muscles, especially that they bulked a little... I'm gonna try it wearing for next few days and we will see how it works for longer period of time.

    I even like it's look when it is violet...

    36GG

    Didn't fit

    This is the only bra I own that would allow me to wear the lower-cut faux wrap v-necks that seem to be in 80% of the clothes in the store these days. I'm probably going to get another in a different size -- this is almost there, but not quite. I wear a 36H in other British bras but I bought it off eBay and can't return it.

    I love the lower wires in the middle, that they lie flat against my sternum and are unobtrusive. Most of all, I love that this bra makes my boobs seem slightly less huge without being a minimizer.

    28FF

    Didn't fit

    I decided to try a Panache, and I have learned that I am not a Panache girl. As a result of the wide cups, the straps dig into my arms, just a bit, if my posture isn't perfect (or if I have my hands forward on the steering wheel in the car). If you haven't tried Panache, this may or may not be an issue for you - it's something worth trying, IMO, as Panache offers a variety of good bras. The band on this bra fits me wonderfully - it's comfortably tight on the loosest setting (and it's new - worn twice). The cups may be a ... bit big, I'm not entirely certain, but the plunge variety of this bra can be difficult to fit. This is certainly wearable.

    On to the specifics of this bra:
    The construction is great. I don't know the durability yet - I've only worn the bra once. The leaf stitching on the cups is quality, and looks nice. There's good detail work - the side of the branches with larger leaves has a different texture from the smaller leaves. It's clearly intentional and shows good attention to detail. The cups have an inner liner, so the inner side of the leaf stitching isn't against the breast. Still, the bra ends up being a bit itchy. The cups themselves are not nearly as comfortable as the cups on my Fantasie Smoothing Balcony Bras (even when both are new). However, the Tango II is a very popular bra, and it's possible this itchiness will work out of the bra as it breaks in.

    This specific bra was labeled "teal" by FigLeaves. It's a very bright, vibrant color. I like it well enough, on its own, but I prefer my bras to be colors that I don't have to worry about showing. I bought this color because it was on sale - it was a cheaper way to try a Panache cup.

    Not great for the asymmetrical - it fits my left boob beautifully but rides up under the armpit near my slightly smaller right boob. The fabric feels a bit scratchy and the band is a bit thin.

    The cups are unusually tall, which is good if you like that sort of thing. I'm personally not a fan. Still, the overall impression is nice, especially under clothing.

    I bought it on clearance and it was worth $14, but I wouldn't pay full price.

    • I'm always looking for very low gores and low coverage cups, so thanks for the review!

    • Meaning you just saved me buying and returning this bra, since it's on sale at figleaves.com and they have free shipping this weekend!

    34H

    Didn't fit

    This bra is so close to fitting right that I almost want to cry. This is the only bra I've ever found with cups that are deep enough without being too wide. Unfortunately, while a 34 band fits me perfectly, I get a tiny bit of quad-boob in the 34H and the underwires are just a touch too short on the sides, plus the shoulder straps sit in a slightly weird place. I really wish this came in larger cup sizes, because I suspect that a 34HH in this style would be my ideal bra.

    Didn't fit

    Ugh. This bra was horrible when I was smaller and now that I've grown a cup it's even worse. If I hadn't gotten it so cheap I would've sent it back but it would've cost me as much as I paid for it. The worst is the profile: flattened pancake boob with the point of the boob about an inch below my nipple! Ugh. It seems to be a Panache thing as my Sophie non under-wired soft cup does the same thing though it fits much better overall. I may give Panache another chance only because I've read that those that don't get along with the plunge do ... better with the balconette but I'm pretty much put off.

    I will give Panache this: it is a quality bra and it is comfortable despite me having to pull the straps out to the max unlike Curvy Kate which is just an exercise in pain. However, the pancake boobs issue trumps all in horror.

    The band runs a little tighter than Freya's but not enough to size up. I can't say anything for the longevity of this bra as it simply exists in my drawer as a reminder of what not to order again.

    28H

    Didn't fit

    Review for SS12 "Tutti Fruity" fashion color.

    Band length: 54.2cm
    Cup width: 16.5cm
    Cup depth: 30.0cm
    Wire length: 30.2cm
    Cup separation: 2.3cm
    Strap width: 1.8cm

    Quality: 5/5
    Comfort: 2/5
    Appearance: 3/5

    I've been super excited to try Tango in this color. Since most of my newest bras have been from Panache's Cleo line and I've sized down to 28's I thought maybe this youthful looking bra would have a similar stretch and ordered a 28H. Just a few weeks ago I was able to try the Nude version in both 30G/30GG in a store and although the GG had a bit of wrinkling I wasn't sure about the comfort level in the G. So here's the "sister size" ... down from the 30GG. The band is actually very tight and could absolutely not be fastened without aid of an extender. There is definitely wrinkling on my smaller side and the wires are too far back even for my liking although I'm usually OK with them a bit farther back in my underarm than other women may be. When reading reviews of this bra the material seemed to be an issue for some but for me it is quite alright. It feels kind of similar to Cleo's Alexa (http://www.bratabase.com/browse/cleo/alexa-6631/) as it's quite rigid and almost a woven material but still relatively soft enough on my skin. The major drawbacks for this bra were actually the wires and the shape. As soon as I put the bra on the center gore wires were pushing so hard onto my chest which felt like someone digging their three middle fingers in hard. At least in this size where the cups are too big the shape is so pointy I think I'm going to put my own eyes out! Hopefully I can find a 30G or I'll have to wait until another Orange colored bra comes out. *sigh*

    Measured immediately before wearing.
    Purchased & Returned mid-July 2012.

    28F

    Didn't fit

    A pretty, classic bra that almost, almost fits me: I get a very slight "orange in a glass" effect with a tiny bit of wrinkling just above the nipple because because I have quite firm, a bit bottom-heavy breasts and it's a plunge style; I generally do better with balconette styles. I do need a plunge bra for low-cut tops though, and the wrinkles are so slight that they're not visible underneath a shirt, so it doesn't really bother me.

    The straps are fully adjustable, and I think the slightly-glossy embroidery ferns are very sweet. The cups of the bra are quite sheer. I find it otherwise extremely ... comfortable and well-fitting. The band seems nice and tight (I think I could actually do with a 26 if they made one, so I like Panache bras because they usually have tight bands). I will update this review if the band stretches out faster than usual.

    Like most Panache bras, it does tend to give me a slightly more pointy shape than I would like, but it's not unnatural or unnattractive by any means, and would probably disappear entirely on someone with a bit fuller-on-top breasts.
