I like this bra a lot! The only complaint I have is that it falls off my shoulders occasionally...not sure why, it fits everywhere it is supposed to just slips from my shoulders now and then April from Eagle River, AK

This is, hands down, the most comfortable bra I have ever had. When I put it on for the first time I didn't want to take it off. (Didn't ever think I'd say THAT about a bra!) The fabric is stretchy, so there's a little bounce when I walk, but at the same time I feel supported. I also appreciate the nickel-free hardware, since I am allergic to nickel. No more constant itching! The only reason I didn't give this bra 5 stars is that it stretches out quickly. After one week it is still returning to its original size when I wash it, but I'm a little concerned because it was expensive and I need it to last.

Note: I was curious what the more reinforced version of this bra would be like, so I ordered a 36E (equivalent to 36DD). This had the same size underwires as my 38D with reinforced cups, slightly wider straps, and side boning under the arms. These features made the bra even more comfortable for me, but the 36 was too snug in the band, and a 38E would be too big. If any Anita reps read these reviews -- please consider adding the extra support features to D cups as well! We could really use them. Heidi

It's true that this is not the most supportive bra, but since I sit at a desk all day, I don't need a lot of support. My main priority is comfort, and this is a comfortable bra. By the end of a long day, I'm still pretty happy to take it off, but I'm not in tears by lunch time. The bra does push breast tissue out to the sides, so looking down, the apex of my boobs is about an inch to the right of center and, looking forward, my boobs appear very wide. That's fine, though - again, comfort is my main priority and this bra does the trick. I will probably buy more, especially if they expand the range of available colors. Jennifer from Chicago, IL, USA

Love this bra. I keep ordering cheaper ones to try and replace it and have to go back and re order this. It fits me perfectly and supports me beautifully. Not the prettiest bra but makes me feel pretty and comfortable! I do have to be careful to make sure the hooks are hooked when I put it in the washer (if i can't find my lingerie bag. The top hook comes off in the wash if I don't. Irene from California

This bra is made for comfort! But, if you have large, heavy, pendulous breasts, do not look to it for support and lift. The stretch cups, again, very comfortable, do not lift and support large, heavy breasts. If you have average, perky breasts that are still up where they should be, this would be an excellent choice, although, in my opinion, this bra is terribly overpriced. Five stars for comfort, one star for no support and lift of the heavily endowed woman. Katrina from Northern Heartland

Most comfortable bra. Had one many years ago and saved it for traveling. Thrilled that I found it online and have ordered several. Prefer no bra at home, but this one doesn't bother me. Good support on sides, soft, and great all around. RNS from Westport, CT usa

This is my favorite bra. I have 4 of them and they are my general everyday bras. The straps never move, they are comfortable and fit great! I am very happy to have found this bra by Anita! Heather from Chicago, IL

Manufacturer needs to improve quality control. I am a previous purchaser of this style of bra, and the same thing happened both times -- the band size varies widely. I'm talking about 3 inches! The first time, all three bras had to be sent back (I'd purchased them through a boutique, so took the bras in, showed them the problem, and they handled it). The replacement bras fit fine. This time, of the three bras I ordered, one fit perfectly, one acceptably (the band is a bit tighter, and the cups seem to be cut a little lower or skimpier or something, so there's a slight bulge at the cleavage -- something not present in the "perfect" bra). The third bra was between two and three inches shorter in the band, so I sent it back. I'm hopeful the replacement will fit. Please note that I went back to the boutique to be measured before ordering the bras; the fitting consultant at the boutique didn't know how long it might take them to get the bras, due to orders on backorder, so gave me your web address so I could order them myself. I was delighted that I was able to save $18 per bra.

When I can get a bra that fits properly, I'm delighted. And the Anita 5490 is the best solution I've found -- on both visits, it was the only one in the boutique that really fit me right, and I love the soft, non-itchy fabric and the seamless cups. Now if they can just improve the consistency of their product, so that one 44C is the same as the next, I'll be a customer for life.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your comment. We have forwarded it on to Anita. Jeanne from Fairfield, OH, USA

I usually buy the Anita Twin Romance but this fits better. Only problem was a poky wire on the first wearing but that seems to have resolved itself. Judy from Lansing MI

This bra is smooth and does not poke or pinch. Thin blouses require using dimrs or a similar product. The fabric curls under the underwire at the sides of the cups. And the shoulder straps constantly have to be hiked up because they move almost off my shoulders (because they are attached to the band at a bad angle). I wish the straps were attached to the band at a 90 degree angle so that this would not be a problem. It also makes it impossible to wear with tank tops because the straps show out the sides. Anita could improve this one so easily and make it into the perfect bra if they would fix this. I also wish they would make a racerback version. Jennifer from Tampa, FL USA

After ordering no less than $500.00 in different sizes and styles of bras I came across this wonderful Anita 5490 bra. The comfort is awesome and it puts the "girls" where they use to be!! The cup has a very natural shape. After returning the last batch of mis-fits, I've ordered 3 more of this one. I would highly recommend that you at least give this one a try. It's not fancy but certainly does the job and looks wonderful under blouses, tee shirts and knits. I give this bra an A+++! Suzanne from Bel Air, MD

I usually do not spend this much on a bra, but this one is comfortable and fits well so is worth every penny! The cups are lined and there is plenty of coverage and the underwire doesn't gouge me. In fact, I can totally forget I have this one on, so what more could you ask?! Carol from NC

I LOVE THIS BRA!!! I paid wayyyyy tooo much at a retail store the first time I bought it. Found it here for wayyyy less. I purchased 2 of these bras and one sports bra for the price of ONE of the exact same bras that I got at a local retail store. Keep up the prices "HerRoom". Mar from edmonton, alberta, canada

This bra has very smooth and soft fabric, I love it for the feel, but it just doesn't fit me right. It doesn't give me the perky look that I would like. I agree with others that the breasts seem to tend to stick out more to the sides - it just doesn't seem to hold me up very well and with my size that is what I am looking for. Also the band for me has been to loose and the cups don't seem to cover well in my size, I end up having a double boob effect on top of everything else, just not pretty. The perfect size would be a 30 with bigger cup size which isn't available. As much as I love the fabric of this bra and the seamless effect it mostly has, I will continue looking for something that works better for me. susanne from delaware

This bra is comfortable for the most part. The wide straps are great and it is smooth under clothing and does not poke or bunch. It lifts and separates nicely. It has one very irritating feature: the shoulder straps are attached to the back of the band so that they slant away from the spine and feel like they are going to come off my shoulder (and they show out the sides of some tank tops). The problem would be solved if they were attached at a 90 degree angle to the band and set closer to the midline of the body. I also wish the band had another hook tighter (there are only two sets of hooks). If I get smaller band size, it will be too tight (based on my experience with the 5444). Overall, this is a good bra. Hopefully Anita will make it even better soon. Jennifer from Tampa, FL USA

I was really excited about this bra because it was listed in the "petite fit" section and is made of a wonderful soft fabric and had nice, wide straps. I put it on and it felt comfortable - but looked hideous. My breasts are wide, round, and pendulous more than they are pointy, and this bra seemed to line up the center with the outside of my rib cage. The cups were the right size, but they didn't seem to hold me up. It's just not the right bra for me. Diana from Kansas
