PanacheTango Bra


3.3 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 240 reviewsRead all reviews


Tango balconette has been a Bravissimo girl favourite for years and is a go-to for many. The non-stretch cups provide really firm support and a rounded shape with plenty of uplift. It’s a great option for those of us who have less fullness in our boobs as the rigid fabric keeps you ‘in place’.

whilst this is a great bra I wish it was made in a plain flat material so that it looks good under t/shirts, I mean without the raised jacquard design on the fabric, it’s very difficult to get a bra bigger in cup size than HH in a plain material, yes there are plenty available in smaller cup sizes, so something for you guys to look at and re design, otherwise a good bra but not under t/shirts or any plain tops

Poor Quality

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

I have been wearing this bra for many, many years. Trust me I have tried other styles, spent hours in the Bravissimo changing room going through style after style just to come back to the Tango. But, now I find the quality is on the decline - the wires pop out and no matter how strongly I stitch them back in they pop out again. Also I have just ordered 3 more in black green and rose. The rose does not fit at all but the other 2 do. PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE this bra but PLEASE, PLEASE sort out the problems otherwise I will have no option but to remain braless! I jest not.

When will this be fixed?

For a long while now the reviews on the Tango bra have been getting worse, yet still nothing appears to have changed. Like others, this has been my staple bra for longer than I can remember! Now the material tears easily, the straps come loose and fall off my shoulder and the bones at the side stick in me. Like others I have big boobs (32HH) and can’t wait to release myself from the agony of this bra! Come on Bravissimo get the manufacturer to sort it out!

What has happened to this bra - and why is nobody taking any notice?

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

Like many others on here, this used to be my go to bra, always quality, always comfortable and the toughest wires in the business. I bought two in nude recently, one I had to repair constantly until it ripped down the middle of the cup for no reason, the other is still going but I now have to wear an elasticated extender on the back and straps to keep the arm straps together until my bra resembles some sort of harness, It's not comfortable and is a relief to take off at the end of the day. The wires have stuck into my armpit so much I have sore bits there. It doesn't help that they have changed the extenders to the bottom of the arm straps so they're always bunched up and not doing their job. Why is nobody taking any notice of all of these reviews? And what alternative is there - Bravissimo's own brand just aren't as strong despite being designed by a company that purports to specialise in bras for bigger boobs!! My bras are always handwashed so there's no excuse for this.

Dear Bravissimo, I don´t think I have to point out what you have to do, but just in case; back track on what was changed when the bad reviews started to stream in, please. This was my favorite bra ever. Until the latest one went to the bin because of a wire that came through the fabric after using the bra two (2!) times. Time to check the quality? I am all for sustainability, but do not have time for handicraft.

Tango no more :(

Am very sad to have to agree that this bra is not what it used to be. Have sworn by them for more than 10 years. Shoulder straps constantly falling off shoulders. Bone at sides curling and rubbing. Cannot wait to get it off.

So disappointed with the last few tango bras I’ve purchased. They just don’t fit anymore. Straps won’t stay up and shape is awful-boobs pushed so far out to sides they are nearly under my arms. Would love to know what everyone else is buying instead.

Surprise, surprise... popping wire!

Like so many others on here I've been buying the Tango bra for years and have it in most colours. Within the last year I've had the wire on two black bras pop out. I handwash my bras as per the instructions so know it's not that. The white I purchased on the same day as the last black one has been fine. I'm so disappointed. Also, I thought the straps falling down was just me but reading the reviews I realise now the quality of this product has changed. I'm fed up with the wires popping out and those annoying straps... please sort this out Bravissimo!
