I have been wearing Panache 40GG, but was looking for a less stiff bra. The Aviana 2453 size 40 band was too loose, and the H cup was too small (the wires were about 3" from my chest at the top. I was going to exchange it for a 38J but it doesn't come in that size. I think in the right size it would have been a fantastic bra. The fabric wasn't scratchy, the underwire was padded, and the entire bra was much less stiff than Panache. Back to the drawing board for me.

Yes Kelly! It is a great bra and I wish we made higher cup sizes in the very soft and comfortable, but very supportive, 2453. I bet we would earn 5 out of 5 stars if the size was right! We do make it's sister soft cup 2353 in 38J (almost identical except no wire), and believe me, with wide foam slings inside, these are very supportive cups. Most women think support comes from the underwire - it doesn't. Support comes from the band, and the underwire helps provide that nice rounded, separated shape we want. Our softcup bras, 2353 included, do a great job achieving this same look without the hassle of the wire. Everbody's going wireless - try it! C Webb Aviana
