I haven't worn my new ones yet,however I've purchased this style from Whispers(Milford,Ct) & Saxton Kent(Orange,Ct.) and I love them.they are very comfortable. they do seem to loose their elasticity rather quick to me. SUSIE from BRIDGEPORT,CT.06610

I have a wide sternum area and don't like to be squished together. I used the widest hooks and the cups went outward, the smallest width hooks and I squished together. The middle works just fine. The straps are a bit long, even at the smallest they will go. Monica from Salt Lake City, UT, USA

I have been wearing this bra in 38F for at least 14 years. I just bought a new one in my same size and the cups are smaller!!! I see that my other bras were made in Europe and this one is made in Myanmar. Sheesh! what the heck is going on. Where is the quality control?

Anita Response: All manufacturing factories have the same standardized production quality. The cut for 5490 has not been modified. In some cases, the black dye runs a bit smaller than a lighter dye. Also it is important to get refit at least twice a year because our bodies are forever changing. Check out HerRoom's Bra Fitting Center to find your perfect size in this bra. Ellen from Fort Pierce

High quality item and the band size fit perfectly but, the cup size was way too small. Am hard to fit...5'1", petite but with large breasts.

Description is incorrect. The straps are ALL stretch. If the sides are 2-ply, it's undetectable. The center height on the item I received was 3.25 inches. I wonder if the cup wires will stop squeaking after it's worn for a while, but I'm sending back due to poor fit. Not supportive enough either.

Anita Response: You are correct, these straps do stretch. The 2-ply description comes from the word twin which means two. There are in-fact 2 layers of fabric on the entire bra. Sometimes hand washing a bra with a little fabric softener will fix the squeaking of an underwire. We suggest trying style 5694 which has a firmer fit. Leslie from Michigan

I was disappointed that there was absolutely no molding...however must not have read the description close enough.

HerRoom Response: If you are looking for a more contour cup, we suggest trying Makeda 5438, which is made out of spacer foam. This should provide the coverage you are looking for. Rhubarb from Minot

First, this bra is not suitable for petite people (I'm 5'3"). I tightened the straps as far as they would go and there was still a real risk they would slip off my shoulders. Second, it separated my boobs to an extreme, made them hang out just under my armpits.

HerRoom Response: We suggest trying Fantasie style FL4520. This style has fully adjustable straps. Anca from Seattle/WA/USA

This is a very comfortable bra, the cups fit well and the band doesn't dig in. I am short (5'2) and very stacked and the straps while very comfortable don't go quite short enough to keep the girls up where they belong- except for my shortness the bra fits great! Kate from Washington

This item was not what I expected for 2 reasons. 1) I typically wear Rosa Faia #5688 which fits like a glove. Because of a fitting comment for this bra, and after double checking through an online chat, I ordered a 30G instead of my typical 30F. Although sizing up was recommended, the cups were too big and did not provide a good fit for me. 2) Secondly, I thought this bra had more lining than the Rosa Faia #5688, however it did not.

HerRoom Response: For the first time Anita customer, going up a cup in 5490 is correct. The difference between the two bras is that 5688 has less stretch in the cups than 5490. In this instance, because you're an avid wearer of 5688, the same cup size would've worked beautifully. Beth from Madison, WI

I am an African American women and the traditional nude bras are not my nude! I have looked for years for a good fitting brown bras. So you can imagine how excited I was when I found these. I waited almost a month for my bras to come in on back order. Then when I received them they didn't even come close to fitting. I am a D cup but these bras where like an A cup.

I am 5'3, and first bought this bra when I was 40 lbs heavier (44 D). It is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. I tried other bras by this maker, but this is my favorite. Over my weight loss the past 7 months, I continue to buy this bra because it continues to fit consistently and is so comfortable. I think it is well worth the cost. The construction is outstanding, it washes well, and 'looks' well under clothing. I tried others in this brand, but was disappointed that the cups were to sheer, and one type had an odd sound after washing. This bra has no issues, even when my husband accidentally puts it in the dryer (I always air dry). ATL-lady from atlanta, GA, USA

I ordered 2 of these in different colors. The one fits like a dream, the other color is too small as if it is a 36 and not a 38.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry to hear about this, sometimes different colors can vary in fit because of the dying process. We suggest going up a band a down a cup. Nadine from Israel

Ordered the bra based on glowing reviews. Although comfortable and the cups were true to the UCS sizing, the bra did nothing to bring my breasts front and center; they were rather splayed. MJ from N.R.H., TEXAS!,USA

First off, the bra fit well on trial so I washed it and wore it. The very next time I washed it I noticed that the elastic strip that attaches to the hooks had pulled away from the seam. I got on the chat line to arrange a replacement only to be told that it would not qualify since I had laundered the bra.

HerRoom Response: I'm sorry you had this experience. This is Anita's No. 1 Rosa Faia style in the US and unfortunately the laundering may have been the cause of this issue. Sharon from Muskegon, MI

Wish this bra was a little cheaper, but it's worth it nonetheless. Amazing comfort and support. Things to note: this is built for a mid-tall person so if you're a hobbit like me, you'll have to take the straps up. Also, it does separate the ladies more than I'm used to. Nothing too severe, they're still fairly front and center. Lastly, the cups were a quarter size too big, but I did the "bend and arrange" and everything fell perfect for me. Seriously though, this is one of the most comfortable things I've ever put on my body and I'm super picky. Katherine from Ohio
