Had to return, just too much pressure on the shoulders. Can't seem to get one in this brand to fit correctly. Lori from Mesa, Az

I'm still questioning the right size. According to the "rules" I should be in a 44 B but no matter what size, the band rolls and it hikes up in the back. I've set the hooks on this one at the smallest and that helps, but the back is too high to reach easily for hooking. If I do the hooking in front and turn it around, the straps are difficult to get over my shoulders. The bra itself is probably one of the nicest I've ever had... well made and all, but the boobs still sag. Eunice from Salt Lake City, Ut

I had a professional fitting for this bra at a local store, and found that I was a 34G, instead of my usual 36F. The fit is very snug with fabulous support around, so that the shoulders are not pulled down by the weight of large breasts. The shape is quite good. The snug fit did take getting used to, and initially the bra felt a bit tight. It gives a little over time, and after a break-in period it feels absolutely fantastic to put on. I actually look forward to putting on my bra now, which is a landmark experience! I have just ordered three more. Susan

Not as advertised, no padding, no lift, back rolled.

Anita Response: The customer indicates, that the cup didn’t lift her breasts and the back rolled, which are indications that the size wasn’t correct. The back rolls especially in big sizes, when the band size is too tight. We recommend to use our measurement chart to find the right size. This Jana bra is one of our bestselling comfort bras and wear tested by many women of all sizes. Sandra from The Villages, FL USA

Being big chested all my life, it is nice to find a bra that even fits but this bra does the job . It is light and a lot cooler then other bras I've bought. It supports well and uplifts the girls better then any bra I've bought in years. It is very comfortable and easy to wear. Cherie from Seminole, Fl.

I love this bra - it's worth every penny! It is supportive, but not bulky and it wicks moisture so I stay cooler. Also, I have very sensitive skin and some bras are too irritating. This bra is smooth and not scratchy and I have had no problems wearing it. Great everyday bra. Linda from Camption Hills, IL

Comfortable is the first word that comes to mind. But, there's more. The bra shapes nicely without underwires, the cotton is comfortable and the straps stay put and don't dig in. The strap comfort is dependent upon proper band fit. With this bra, the band fits snugly enough that it doesn't ride up the back, but still flexes enough that normal breathing is possible. A miracle!

This bra was very comfortable, but I returned it. I have worn underwire bras forever. I thought I would try a non-underwire bra.

I was not happy with the way my breasts looked. I especially missed the side support. I thought I looked like I was not wearing a bra at all. I was just too "saggy" in this bra.

Anita Response: The underwire gives the bra a lot of support and forms the breast especially in bigger cups like 38H. Some customers prefer the non-underwire bra because it's more comfortable for them, but it won't form the breast like an underwire bra. Most of our customers report that they prefer underwire or non-underwire, only a very few like both, so it's probably also personal preference what you like better. Linda

The fit of this bra is nice, and for not having underwire the support is decent. It is a little on the hot side though. i purchased them to sleep in, and I haven't been able to, I find that I am sweating too much in them. I would rate a 4-5 stars if the fabric breathed a little better. Dawn from Manchester, MD

The most comfortable bra ever!! Was comfortable right out of the box, no break in time. Great for the summer because it breathes. Have already ordered another one. Flora from nj

I love this bra. Cotton, great support, especially around the back and under the arms. I went and bought 3 more. Will be absolutely great to have in the humid south this summer! Kate A from Houston

I have always dreaded shopping for bras as trying to find one that fits properly is next to impossible. I couldn't imagine ordering one online, but I was unable to find anything in the stores, so I was very pleased when the very first one I ordered fit perfectly. The only thing I would have changed about it is the seam that goes across the front, but it has not proved to be a problem at all and I ordered my second one right away. Worth the money.

1) what gives with the front of the bra near the arms... who decided that anyone with this much chest could afford to have their arms rendered useless via this bra's straight jacket technique? Too much material near the arms in front of the bra... makes one feel very constricted.

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.

Anita Response: 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. Susan from OP, KS

The band on this bra was too big, and they don't make them any smaller, so I've returned it to try for something else. I've been looking for a wireless bra that provides a lot of support, but with such a big band this definitely wasn't it. I've never tried anything from this brand before, so I'm not sure if it is just this style that runs large, or the whole brand.

Anita Response: 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. Meghan from Vermont

This is an amazingly comfortable bra. I have not had a cotton bra since, well, forever. It does not ride up, dig in or make me too warm. The straps stay put and are comfortable. I will be buying more Anita bras in the future. Karen from Neenah, Wisconsin

Sadly this bra does not work for me. C cup was too large, and B cup too small. Both had extra fabric puckering in the top portion of the cup. Lisa from MN

Returning to try the same style in a smaller cup size. New brand for me, and thankfully, "Anita" actually has a smaller cup size in this style -- a rarity in the supportive bra styles. I felt I was swimming in the cups...although the rest seemed just fine. Lisa from MN
