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.

I tried the 28G in this about a week ago and found it to be too small in the cup (among other things). For a variety of reasons, I ordered this in the 28H instead of the 28GG (though I'll now be trying that one out just to check).
The difference between the 28G and the 28H is pretty significant (recognizing that there is an entire size in between). The cups on this one were close, but also fit entirely differently. The wires extended too far and the gore (even though it is a plunge) was uncomfortable. Perhaps most surprising though, was that the 28 band feels much more like a 26 band, even on the loosest setting. At least I know I'm not a 26 now.
All around, a good bra, but not the right fit. It will be interesting to see how the 28GG fits.

I'm happy with this bra overall. The wires are about an inch too wide for me, but that's hard to avoid in an H cup on a 28 band. The band does fit on the snug side, I might consider sister sizing to a 30GG with my next purchase. It provides a nice shape and I love how it looks.

I am still trying to fighure out what cup size I wear, I recently found out that I'm a 26 band not a 28. I can wear some GG cups. I bought this bra when I wasn't sure of my exact size , and it's too late to return.This is a beautiful Berry color by Panache. This bra is brand new with tags attached, never worn only tried on. Panache is known for having smaller bands than Freya and I agree, its very comfortable and light, but it is not my cup size.
