We are sorry that this was not the correct bra for you! This bra does have a cult following due to it's extreme push up effect however as with anything, not all bras fit all women! The 3/4 cup padding creates a "shelf" for the girls to rest atop, giving a full round shape both at the top and the bottom of the cup so that the look is natural (a 2 cup size boost). However I think the bra to try if you want push-up styling but prefer a bit less volume is style 5941. This T-Shirt bra still offers a great shape but without the liquid padding so is quite a bit more subtle.

Style 1044 is designed to give you a natural uplift for a cleavage enhancing look. In order to do that, the bottom of the bra has a padded sac filled with mineral oil and your natural bust is supposed to sit on top where the bra is not padded. Only this way will you get that “2 cup” enhancement look. If you looking for something comfortable with light padding all around especially for post surgery, I suggest you try our new Wire Free Atlantis Bra style 5945. Its light padded all throughout with slight bump ups on the side and no wires for super comfort every day.

. We think you will find the styling and the fit of this bra to your liking.

Since I first developed cysts in my breasts two years ago I had gone so far as to rip all the underwires out of my bras. Still hurt. Then I went to completely soft bras. They looked horrid and still hurt.
The Atlantis sits lower than a normal underwire bra does so you're propping up your lovely ouchies on a nice cushion. The underwire on this bra ... I can't even feel it! The water cushion is definitely 3/4 of the cup. That worried me at first. I thought it'd look fake as heck. But Panache really performed a miracle with this bra! It WORKS!! I actually have curves. And hills. Well, my mole hills are more like real HILLS now. I can wear a low cut shirt with confidence.
This is the best bra I have ever purchased!! Worth the price!!!! I am a true AA and I fit perfectly into the AA in the Atlantis, however I would say that if you have larger nipples you may want to go up a cup size. Mine are hovering at the edge and I have average nipples. No chance of me falling out, though. I just look perky. And it's pretty hard to make my AA's look perky. lol
Very natural contours from the front and side. I read that some ladies had an issue with the back clasp. You purchased the wrong size. Period. Remeasure your ribcage! And I had to fuss a bit with the shoulder straps, trying to figure out the 'give' with this bra. They are made out of the most fantastic stretchy material I've ever seen on a bra. DON'T be scared to tighten them up a hair more than what you think you need. It can make the bra fit better overall, including any gapping issues you may think you have in the cups.
The entire bra is just very well made. I can't think of anything at all to complain about. Which is mind blowing with the years I've spent griping about bras in general. When you're small breasted it's hell to shop in the bra section of a store. When I first purchased this bra I did so with 50% hope and 50% whimpering fear that I'd have to return it. I read the reviews and now I'm glad I am very glad I made the plunge to try this. This is the only bra I'll wear now.
Oh, and my husband loves it too!! *wink*
