2) the lift offered by this bra is minimal at best. the lift and separation make me feel a bit freakish as my breasts tend to head in that direction anyway, but the lift is the big part. I honestly don't see much difference between when I'm wearing the bra and not wearing the bra.
I've worn a 38 band forever and with this the band it is just slightly too big. It doesn't make for uncomfortable breathing(don't want that), but it also feels like the bra is going to slip (and it frequently does). This also contributes to the bra riding up in the back... another no no.
The cup size is accurate, I suppose, but again there is the fact that my boobs are truly going in opposite directions (the fact that my breasts have that torpedo effect is very annoying). I don't want uni-boob exactly but this much boob on the side is ridiculous.
I'd like to see a hint of elastic in the over the shoulder area. Again, too much restriction makes it hard for a woman to move.
All together I like this bra's attempt, but I can say from one very picky person to another, someone in the bra industry needs the "big" girls to help them decifer what will actually work.
I ususally buy Bodywise bras in Australia and they are the most comfortable I've found, but I'm trying for more support since I became a G cup.
HerRoom Response: We appreciate your review. Given the many positive comments about this bra from others, we can't help but wonder if you are confused on the sizing since in Australia, they size bras differently.
Wow - I never heard this before. Yes maybe you need to get info on how to fit the bra properly and to adjust the straps - that can help to get a better fit for the boobs' shape.
Also this bra is made to give support all around and therefore we have to go wider in the straps and wider on the armhole to cover these areas.

Also one top selling bra in the US and worldwide for us - never heard of such a complaint.
A very supportive bra with inside cotton material is also 5404 which runs till H cup even. Style 5448 is a Top seller and I would suggest that one.

HerRoom Response: The measuring system really falls apart after a size D cup. If you are larger than a D, you really need to try on different cup sizes.

HerRoom Response: Bras with light padding in the cups for modesty are called "contour" rather than "molded" bras.
