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.
