Very Satisfied. Also, it makes me feel like a sexy woman. Ann from Atlanta

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

Previous reviews helped me decide to try this bra. First time I've ever tried a new brand that I liked. Supremely comfortable. The cups aren't huge, like most large cup bras tend to be and the underwire doesn't dig into my under arm. I ordered one in white, one in tan. Probably won't order another white but the tan color is a definite future buy because it doesn't show under sheer tops and extra wide arm hole openings. Kathleen from Sonoma County, California

This is a great bra! It holds up very well. The straps are wide and comfortable. It lifts and separates. Looks good under t-shirts and other types of clothing. I plan on ordering more of these. Great brand!! Heather from Saginaw/TX/USA

Good fit, I like the fact that the wide fabric straps extend over the top of the shoulder which makes the bra very comfortable. The underwires, however, do "squeak" (quite loudly) if you are stretching your arms. Indira from Providence, RI

It was very soft fabric which was nice however it just did not give the shape or support I wanted (or need). My breasts were pointed out and down -- not pretty. Christina from Houston

Great fit, and very comfortable. Straps are wider than I prefer, but maybe that's what adds to the comfort level??? Julia from Indiana, USA

Pros: The material is very soft and the bra has no itchy edges and feels very comfortable.
Cons: It is not supportive enough and did not hold up my breasts in place. The bra is also rather stretchy so probably will not last long.
I wish it had the extra support panels in the larger cup sizes and less stretch. Best for casual wearing. Rainee from Baltimore

I love this bra. It fits very well. I wish it had a little padding in the cup other than that I love it and I will be shopping with herroom again. Kimberly from Perry

This bra fit and felt okay; however, it pushed my breasts out to the sides. Did not like the look. Josie from Forest, Virginia, USA

I love this bra. The only problem is that it tends to stretch quickly marie from cincinnati

This is a basic, good fitting bra, but with poor color choices. The champagne is really cream and there is no skin or nude color offered -- that would be my preference. In addition, the cups are thinly lined, so nipple show-thru is all but a sure thing. The support is good and the straps stay put. Lisa from Bethesda, MD

Fit is quite good; I'm a little different cup size on one side than the other; fabric does wrinkle just a bit on the smaller size, could use more stretch but then it wouldn't be as supportive as it is, I guess. Comfort is pretty good (my favorite bra is a stretchy pull over camisole by Elite Plus, which has no wires and no hardware, but of course the support on that isn't as good.) So I am giving this Anita 5490 a 4 star rather than a 5 for the comfort factor. My skin has gotten very sensitive as I get older, and the bra band and hardware are a little itchy for me (which is why I tend to wear the Elita camisole which has no hardware at all and is very, very soft). But for a supportive underwire bra, this Anita 5490 is the best I've found. HerRoom is a great resource; it's so easy to order, and they are so accommodating about returns for things that don't fit.

Love my new Anita bras and I bought 3 & saved $30.00 from what I paid in a local store!!!! It is the most comfortable bra I have ever owned. I will certainly be back for more! Thanks Dee from Michigan USA

This is my second time purchasing this bra and it as wonderful as the first. I lost weight and needed a smaller bra. I was nervous about the size at first but it fits perfectly. Thanks Anita and HerRoom, I am a customer for life. Nicole from MN

I have worn this bra for years and it is the most comfortable of any I've ever tried. If washed properly it also lasts a long time. Suzanne from Cincinnati, OH USA

Although I've only had this bra a couple of weeks, I have to say it is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. The straps stay put, the back does not ride up, the band does not dig in. I liked it so much, I ordered more. Just wish it was not quite so expensive! Lois from Baton Rouge, LA

I tried a 36D in a local store but was disappointed in the support so I ordered a 36E from HerRoom because I knew that the larger size had an extra support panel in the cup. Sadly the cup was too large. I do not understand why this brand does not consider a 36D a large enough size to warrant the extra support panel. It was the most comfortable bra I ever tried on except it really needed that extra support panel. I sure hope they realize this and make the change to it. I would buy a drawer full if they did.

This is the best bra I've ever worn, and what I wear to work every day. Got the first one, with a fitting, at Intimacies in NYC, and am now thrilled to find it here for $20 less. Comfortable, supportive, feels like it's a personal fit. Joanna from Maine

I really like this bra however, I agree with some of the other reviews that the straps need to be more adjustable. I wore it for a day and decided the straps needed to be shorter, so I have had to make an alteration. Linda from Michigan

This was the 4th time I've purchased this bra. It is my favorite for comfort. They do seem to wear out fast but this is to be expected since I wear it daily. I love the bra but it does not give a good shape. I love that my cleavage is where it should be! Sandy from Oklahoma
