I wanted to love the Tango, really I did. The coverage and shaping in the 34G I tried was great! It was flattering and the cups fit well. Unfortunately, the band was way too loose in that size. The band shifted around uncomfortably every time I moved. I would say it ran about one full band size too large.
So I instead tried a band down and cup up to see if that would work better. The 32GG was a huge disappointment. The cut was entirely different! Instead of being a moderate coverage cup, the cup was cut so high that I couldn't even wear a tank top without it peeking out. The cup was also cut very high on the sides- so high that I couldn't move my arms without the fabric of the cup cutting into me. In addition to the difference in coverage, the shape of the cups was quite different. Instead of a supported natural shape, the GG+ Tango has a very pointy shape. The band on the 32GG was true to size, unlike the band on the 34G

This is a good basic bra. Both the band and cup run about a size small, so be sure to size up in the band and use the same cup letter to what you would usually order.
My one gripe is that throughout the day I tend to fall in toward the center. I don't have problems with spillage or quadboob, but my breasts do get sort of pushed together at the center. I suspect that I'm just more suited to a balconette style bra than a plunge.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bra, as with other bras from Parfait, runs quite small in the band. I did manage to get the bra hooked on the loosest hook, but it was pretty difficult. The cups are...odd. They may work better for someone with fairly firm breast tissue, but these are not for a woman with very soft breast tissue. The side-support slings pushed and cut into the side of the breast, leaving an obvious line where the sling ended. The fabric of the cups was too stretchy to provide any real shape, so my breasts looked very odd and lumpy in this bra. I tried it in two colors, and returned both.

This bra is beautiful. Absolutely lovely. It fit true-to-size, and is well constructed. It was extremely comfortable for the short time I wore it while trying it on- I had no issues with poking, prodding, riding, digging, or shifting. The one problem I had was the shape it gave me- the shape was very much a bullet/torpedo shape on me, which I don't like at all. It's really unfortunate that I had to return the bra, because it is both beautiful and very comfortable, but it's just not quite right for me.

This bra was obviously high-quality in materials and workmanship, but I feel it's not really designed for my breast shape- which is full all around. The cups are fairly shallow at the top. They did fit well on the bottom part of the breast, but cut in a bit at the top. I feel like if I COULD get this in the next cup size up, the cup probably wouldn't fit quite right then either, because it's just designed for a different breast shape. The band was firm and fit just as it should.
The cup was also not quite as supportive as I would like. The material is beautiful, but has a little too much stretch to really support the weight of the breast- there was some definite droop over the underwire, even though everything was positioned correctly.
I will be retuning mine, but I would definitely recommend this bra to women whose breasts fit the profile for which it was designed, For those with very full breasts, even in the correct size it's not a great option.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very Pretty but small
By Raye32
This is a real pretty bra. I wish I ordered a 36G because the 34GG I got is way too small around the bust which ends up giving me that double breast line look.

Bra Cup Sizing
Posted March 18, 2013
If you find that the bra cup is cutting in at the top, you should probably keep the same band size but go up in the cup. That means if the cup in a 34GG is too small, you should get a 34H, not a 36G. The cups on the 36G would be about the same size as the cups on the 34GG (so still too small), but the band would be larger. This band will not be as supportive for you, causing the breasts to droop in the front, the band to ride up in the back, and too much weight will be placed on your shoulders.

band size

For this brand is the band size the same as the ribcage measurement?
I have tried two different sizes in this bra, and I found that in the G and under range, the band seems to run large, and in the GG+ range, the band seems to run true to size.
