Product Review: Panache Tango II

Hello Hello,

Keeping up with my focus on “Basics with a Twist” this week, I’m going to review the Panache Tango II Plunge bra, particularly in the cornflower blue.

Sizing and Fit:  With most UK manufacturers, I like to size down in the back and try the 32E, which fit perfectly.  The band was very supportive and snug with really good anchorage, and the cups didn’t have any overflow or spillage.  To be honest, I’ve really come around to seamed bras like the Tango lately because I feel like they give a better fit as well as more lift.  Oh, and I like how the bra doesn’t have a thick band at the bottom!  I hate feeling like my torso is being overtaken by my bra.

Materials:  The material on the wings deserves first mention because it is so soft and smooth!  I don’t know what to compare it to other than awesomeness because that’s how it feels.  Fully adjustable straps are another nice touch to the bra, and I like how the embroidery on the cup doesn’t look like it will fray or snag.  Finally, the material on the cups is pretty nice too and doesn’t feel irritating.

Design:  As I mentioned in my review of the Wacoal Alluring, I’m a big fan of lower coverage styles.  I just like to have an open neckline, and the Panache Tango Plunge really delivers on this without making me feel like it’s cleavage time!  It’s just a comfortable, v-neck bra that provides nice shaping and support.  Some reviewers have felt that the cups give a pointy appearance from the side, which they kind of do when you’re wearing the bra only.  However, once you put on a top, I think it smooths right over.  Last but not least, the cornflower blue color is really unique and flattering too, but I also like the beige.  It’s got a little hint of gold in it that makes the bra feel a little less . . . well, beige!

Other Comments:  With a price tag of $52, it’s a pretty affordable bra, making it perfect for everyday wear.  And before everyone cries foul over the embroidery and the seams, I really don’t find it to be a huge problem.  Sure there are some shirts/dresses that show it a little, but it’s really not as much of a deal-breaker as you’d think.

Grade: A

    I might have to stop by the store to try this on. I love the color, of course because it looks like Carolina Blue. I’m just waiting to see what you are going to get in for fashion colors and then I am heading in to try on some of the gorgeous stuff you have been reviewing.

    It reminds me of Tarheel blue too! Every time UPS drives by the store, I get hit with some disappointment because I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Freya Elize this month!
