I had to think long and hard about spending $65 dollars for a bra. Today that is a lot of money. But I sure got my money's worth. Finally a bra that fits me around the rib cage in a B cup. Up to now I had to order too large a cup to get the right size. But more important, the underwire is not as big as other bras so it doesn't poke me under the arms or in the ribcage. I love the leotard back! Keeps the straps from sliding down. Some bras with leotard backs come up too close to the neck so the straps show with some shirts - not this bra.

Concept is great . The straps dug into my shoulders (straps too short) and caused neck and headaches. I really like this company but their bras do not work for a small frame with large cup sizes. The wireless they make is nice but the band rolls under constantly. I am looking for the perfect bra and when I find it I will sing it's praises. Nancie from mount Shasta, CA

I returned this item because it pushed by breasts down and out rather than up and forward. This bra is made of thin material, and I prefer cups with a little more structure. However, I've come to realize that bras just fit people differently, and what did not fit me well, may fit someone else. So read these reviews with a grain of salt. Heather from Provo, UT

This is the best bra EVER! I bought a couple years ago and the store went out of business and I had not been able to find a way to get this style. I searched the web and found a site but couldn't order because it wasn't in English. I was thrilled to finally find HerRoom. I'll never have to be without this bra again. It's the only bra I have found that provides the support I need comfortably. The straps don't dig into my shoulders and the cups keep me from looking huge. I could sleep in this bra it's so supportive yet comfortable. Try it - you'll LOVE it. Nancy from Norristown, PA USA

Shapes exceedingly well. Runs true to size and doesn't chafe, pull, scratch or otherwise annoy after being worn for a while. The straps are comfortable and very supportive. Great support for heavier breasts and gives a very nice profile. Lee from Irwinton, GA

Supportive and comfortable. Offers lift and the underwire is fairly comfortable to wear all day. Would recommend this one for the ladies with larger busts. Karen from Illinois

Great bra. I have a hard time find bras that are comfortable and make me feel good about my public clothing; this works. Straps are a little long; I have to put them at there shortest length. Kat from Maryland, USA

I had really high hopes for this bra. I have been wearing the Donna Karen 35146 exclusively for 10 years, and they stopped making the bra in 2007 (I cried!!) and have been looking for a suitable replacement ever since. Her Room suggested this one and, it has a lot of the things I want- NO padding (why does every bra have to have padding??), very supportive, soft, and comfortable. BUT, the straps are hideous! They are so thick- it makes me feel like I'm wearing a sports bra or "boulder holder". The back is super thick as well (3 or four hooks?) There is absolutely no feeling feminine in this bra. So, I returned it. I am continuing to look for a NO padding, underwire, supportive and feminine bra. Not sure why it's so hard to find/make!! I wish Donna Karen would make these bras again- I'd buy 100 to last me the rest of my life! Terra from CA

This has been a great bra for me, as I am very difficult to fit. This is an extremely comfortable bra that I could actually make the bands short enough so it doesn't slip off my shoulder. The support is great for me and I am very pleased with the shape it gives me. The only tiny glitch was the first one I purchased locally was made in Serbia and it fits perfectly. The one I purchased here was made in Portugal and it is slightly more generous in the cups and band, but not enough for me to go crazy about it. It still fits, but I notice the difference. I will certainly purchase more of these bras through HerRoom where their service and prices are great. Patti from NH

This is the bra I put on when I don't feel like wearing a bra. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the band squeaks sometimes. Same thing happened on a previous one. Debra from Pratt KS

Too tight for comfort but would support well. I returned it and re-ordered a less constricting bra. Sally from Rochester, NY

It doesn't fit me right and I don't necessarily like the way it fits. But if it fit right I bet it would be a great bra. Emily from Libertyville, IL

This is THE most comfortable bra I have ever worn. I'm done with trying on 20 bras just to find one that fits and then have that style disappear the next year. At 58 it's hard to find support and comfort without all kinds of extra material, extra wide back etc. The padded strapes feel SO good. Thank you for quality workmenship.

I agonized over this bra, but finally returned it. Putting it on felt really good, the band size was perfect, but the cups were just a bit too small, leaving me feeling like I was wearing a sports bra, and with a bit of bulge at the cleavage and on top. The straps and band were a nice width, and didn't cut at all, which is rare. I would have happily exchanged it for one with slightly larger cups, but unfortunately, the one I had already maxed out the style. I really liked the smooth fabric, though I would point out that the "seamless" cups don't quite apply to the larger cup sizes - the "support panel" for the larger cup sizes is actually seamed inside the cups. That said, the seams are unbelievably smooth and itch-free - and I'm picky about such things. Meredith from Newport, RI USA

Very comfortable bra! Like wearing nothing. Fits perfectly, I am pregnant and it is so nice to have a comfortable bra. It has good support now and the only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because I can see it stretching out as I wear it and offering less support then in the beginning. Not enough to make me return it though. Overall a great bra Emily from ca

I'm top heavy and have a difficult time finding a bra that fits. These bras not only fit but are comfortable everyday bras that will work well under knits (t-shirts) this summer. They give me a more softer rounded shape rather than a pointed bullet shape that most larger bras provide. The only reason that I didn't rate it higher was that they aren't pretty they are basic t-shirt bras. Karen

THE MOST COMFORTABLE AND SUPPORTIVE BRA EVER! ONLY DRAWBACK IS THAT THE STRAPS ARE REALLY WIDE. Donna

This bra is super comfortable. The problem is that it is not supportive in the cup. The cup is made of a very soft and stretchy material. For a larger breasted lady like myself, I didn't like the feeling that my 'girls' were just poked through some wire support and just hanging there free. Even for just everyday use the cups were too 'soft' for me. Too bad the cup material isn't more supportive. Leah from United States

I've worn this particular bra for years, and once upon a time, they wore like iron. The second-to-last bunch of them I bought were ready to be retired after a year or less. I just bought four more in the same size as last time, and my straps are constantly falling down. (I don't believe I myself have changed size.) The cups do also tend to pucker rather than conform to their contents. I used to like this bra a lot, but next time I buy bras, I'm going to choose something different.

HerRoom Response: This bra was introduced in September of 2006. It's possible you have been wearing a different style. A common cause for straps falling down off the shoulders is when women start loosing their breast fullness and a hollow space above their breasts starts appearing. Your symptoms sound lik eyou need a smaller cup size. Linda from San Francisco, CA USA

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
