Washed dark Panache bra and the material tore close to the wire. The plastic disintegrated - shedding white specks everywhere! I replaced the bra and it has happened a second time! 2 bras in 6 months! I have been buying only BRAVISSIMO bras for 15 years and I put them through the washing machine. Previously there has been no issue. A couple of very old ones the wire eventually poked through at the top - but a quick stitch sorted that out. Each bra has lasted a long time. When the first of these new Tango bras disintegrated I thought it had maybe got caught in the door and it was my fault. So I bought another one and it has happened again. The quality has clearly deteriorated. Reading the reviews - hand washing isn't the answer and I have better things to do with my time. So bye-bye Bravissimo.
As many other reviews state, I've bought this bra several times and the quality of materials seems to have plummeted. Even when rotating, washing by hand and very gentle overall care, the wires pop through within the first few weeks of wear which is ridiculous and not at all my experience with this bra when previously purchased. I'm very disappointed.
This is still a great bra, firm and good fit, very pretty pattern. On the downside the underwire will dig through the fabric after a few years. Yes years, if you wash it gently it will last a very long time before anything happens. I have bought this in two sizes before and after pregnancy and I have it in five different colours. The second and last negative issue with this bra is that the hooks on the back will bend in time and/or fall off. I like the stiff lace fabric and I really love the support and shape that this bra gives.
I love this bra, hence why I have bought it for so many years. It does have one major down fall. Every single one I have ever bought the wire has always popped out. It usually takes six months for this to happen, which is frustrating but I don't mind too much and still purchase again. The last ones I have purchased have been really disappointing. I recieved some in June and a wire popped out in July. So I ordered another which arrived at the end of July and the wire has already popped out two weeks later. I'm so disappointed because I can't afford to waste £60 pounds on bras (with the p+p) for them to fall apart weeks later. I wash the bras by hand as per your instructions. I'm hoping you can help me with this, as I have been a loyal customer for many years.
Tango Bras have been my go to bra for many years but the last few I've brought have not lasted. My last two, I bought in April have just broken with the wire coming out of the side of one and the centre of the other! Both have been washed by hand as per instructions and dripped dried. Until I can get in store to find a replacement I will have to order the same again.
