Most comfortable bra that I have worn in a long time. Pricey, yet worth it. As I have aged, I find I need a larger cup size and this size is very hard to find. I love that the fabric isn't itchy. Patty from Cumberland, RI, USA

These bras are so comfortable - a little hard to find so I was thrilled to receive them so quickly - If you want comfort and support without the wire this is the bra - Not too much elastic on the part that touches my body - no seams or stitching that itches - all day comfort - my older ones have stretched out a little - but over the past few years I have purchased at least a dozen of these bras - just got 3 new ones and will retire 3 and order 3 more soon.

I love, love, love this bra! It fits like your skin and feels so good, you hardly know it's on! I was fitted at Sal-Liz's after a breast reduction and fell in love with this bra over the others because of the feel of it! I bought 3 that day and was so pleased to discover "HerRoom" on line, so I could purchase from home, when needed. I ordered 3 more from here and the service is fantastic! Thank you! You've gained a new and satisfied customer. I recommend your products and service to everyone! Debbie from MS

As a mastectomy patient it has literally taken me years to find a bra that both fits and is comfortable. I first had a TRAM flap done for reconstruction but finally had to do the breast augmentation. This bra is an exceptional find as augmented breasts are not as free moving as the natural breast. I have recently moved from Chicago to Ohio and was glad to find you online after being fitted in a specialty shop in Chicago. The price is a little high but considering the number of other bras that I've bought in the past that didn't fit well at all this is a reasonable price. I have just ordered three more which will make a total of 8 bras over the last 4 years. Arla from Medina, Ohio

Anita Classic bra was comfortable and cup fit well. However found the straps to be wide and three hook back closure/underarm bands too wide for petite frame. Good quality and comfort just not the bra for a true petite frame. Have reordered another Anita bra. Nancy from Tennessee

This is the most comfortable bra I have found. I don't need tons of support so it works well for me. I like the smooth cups which look nice under knitwear. I have a number in different colors. It's the only bra I wear. Katie from Louisiana

No support whatsoever! Inner liner bunched, couldn't get it smooth. Returned for credit. C. from Fort Lauderdale/FL/USA

Mixed review. I'm giving 4 stars because it is comfortable. Felt supportive for first month until it stretched; now I feel a bit saggy in it, as someone else posted. But it isn't meant to be a highly structured bra. For that, I will turn to the styles with seamed cups like the anita safina...

I was surprised that someone else found the band tight, because I found the bra so stretchy I had to size down in the band. I wear a 36-38 band normally and I went down to a 34 in this (granted, I did need an extender at first but I won't for long at the rate this fabric is stretching).

I also think you should take comments about the bra straps being short vs. long with a grain of salt. I am average height, and they were long for me (already adjusted as tight as they go). That may be why I'm feeling less support in it since it stretched. My torso is shortest above the waist. So that all depends on how you're proportioned.

Agree with others who said they should make 3 hooks in all sizes. Anita offers the wider back band (3 vs. 2 hooks) in cup E and above regardless of band size. I tried on the 36D and it didn't feel like it was keeping things in place at all for that reason. I wish they would change that and offer the wider band above a C cup or just across the board.

Beautifully made, good quality, but it didn't fit me properly. The second microfiber layer did not lay smooth. It bunched up while the outside layer lay smooth. Evelyn from Salinas, CA

Very comfy. Was very disappointed that you do not carry my size in Black, would have preferred this style over the other one I purchased Linda from Lumberton, NJ USA

At first when I tried it on I was pleased with the fabric and comfort. However, after wearing it for awhile, I found it had little support. Kris from Seattle, WA, USA

Fit was nice - but not happy that nipples showed through fabric.

I was shocked. For a wireless bra, it is pretty supportive. Very comfortable. I recommend it highly. Connie from New Boston, MI

Very comfortable, and for me the support is very good. The cups conform nicely, and the look is very smooth under a t-shirt. I have two of these. The band is designed to be snug (but should not be hard to close) which offers nice support and ultimately more comfort because there's no rubbing and shifting. Matilda from Ohio, USA

First, it FITS! Major score. Second, it is soft and comfortable. I have never owned a bra that I could wear all day and barely know it is there. This bra is on the pricey side, but worth every cent in my opinion. I'm buying another one. Thanks. Whitney from Grants Pass, OR, USA

Although I already had a fitting at Nordstrom's and had been told I was a 36, this bra was very tight around the chest and would not close comfortably. I do have a bra in 36F that is made in France that is comfortable. In general I'm finding that most American designed bras, are not true enough to size and do not fit. Barbara from Medford, OR

I really love this bra. It provides surprisingly good lift for no underwire and the comfort cannot be beat. I plan to wear this bra as a weekend, travel, and sleep bra primarily but I could see enjoying it this summer, too, all the time. The reason it does not get a five star rating is that I feel the straps are slightly wider on the D cup than seems necessary and there are only two columns of hooks. I think the description says three. So, I wish it were possible to adjust the bra slightly more around the band as it may perhaps stretch out...but overall I'd recommend this bra--I am really happy with it. Kimberly from

Very comfortable, perhaps a tad less supportive than the underwire. My standard non-work day bra. Joanna from Maine

Best fit and comfort of any bra I've tried. I wish it had 3 columns of hooks instead of just 2. Merry Lyn from Denver, CO usa

One of the most comfortable aspects is only 2 hooks in the back, which means a narrow band in the back and under the cup. This style really works great for me. I barely notice having a bra on! The only negative is the straps only can be adjusted a few inches. Carol from Bowling Green KY

Not as good of support as I had hoped it would be. Also, pretty expensive. Bev from Jane Lew, WV, USA
