I have found no other bra that minimizes and prevents bounce like this one does. I wish the straps were more adjustable, it rides higher in the back than I would like. I agree about the padding being too far forward on the shoulder and the gap in the middle.

HerRoom Response:IF your bra is riding up in back, you probably need to go down a band size.

I like this Bra a lot, however I used to wear model #3362 and it has been discontinued. Sarah from Brooklyn, NY

I like this bra, it is very comfortable especially because of the pads on the shoulder however I find that it doesn't lift me as much as I want it too and I look a little droopy.

HerRoom Response: If you are droopy, there is a good chance that your band size is too large. 90% of a bra's support should come from the band - not the straps. If the cups fit you correctly, consider a 34DDDD or 34G. This will take you down a band size while maintaining your cup size.

I really like this bra - it minimizes better than any bra I've ever tried. However, my one complaint is that it fits beautifully in the morning, but by mid-day it rides up in the back - I am constantly pulling it down (every time I go to the restroom).

HerRoom Response: When a bra rides up in back, it usually means your band size is too large. We would suggest a 40DDDD or 40G size.

Most comfortable, best fitting bra I've ever had! I've spent literally hours at high-end department stores with knowledgeable sales women trying to fit me for a bra, spent a fortune, and still never had anything that came close to the comfort, support, and fit of this bra! FABULOUS!! Hard to Fit from Foster City, CA USA

This bra gave me dramatic results and minimized even better than I expected. It is very comfortable for all day wear. My clothes look a lot better. Great product! Heather from Greensboro NC

I've worn this bra for many many years, probably from when they first started making it! This is one of the best support bras I've ever found, HOWEVER! I do agree with an another comment, it has always gaped in the front. I started wearing this bra when I was a 34C. It's never mattered if I went up a cup size. I think some women's breasts are just wider than the standard cupping design regardless of the size. I say this only because, I've never been able to find any bra that the center has fit against my sternum. NEVER. So if any one has any suggestions, ideas or even words of comfort I'd love to read them. Thanks

HerRoom Response: Minimizer bras work by compressing the breasts thus making them wider with less projection. The side effect is that the center panel of a minimizer many times will not rest against the sternum. This is common and not necessarily a sign that the bra is not fitting properly.

I LOVE this bra!! I use to avoid taking pictures because my breasts looked so large, but now I don't have that problem anymore. It definitely reduced my size by 1.75 inches or more! I'm very satisfied with this bra. Sometimes on fitted shirts the seam on the bra can show but I would rather that than look huge! I highly recommend this bra to anyone. You will love it!

This is my everyday bra. I highly recommend it for smaller women with very large breasts (I actually wear a 32DDD but they don't make that cup/band size combo in this model). The only other drawback for me is that the cups come up quite high so I can't wear low-cut shirts with it, but that's what Lunaire is for :). Nina from Madison, Wisconsin

I've worn this great bra for 5 years now. Having the Front wire gap, as I have large breasts and a narrow chest, I sew a dart on each side of the upper chest before it goes into the straps. The shoulder pads were too close to the bra for me, I cut the straps in the front, sewed in soft elastic, and the pads rested perfectly on my shoulders. Scratchy, itchy spots of the bra I covered with soft material. I don't mind altering a bra if it wears a long time. Kathryn from Bethesda, MD

I have been very pleased with this bra except for one issue I have not seen mentioned in the other reviews. In my size (40DD) the front center sticks out and gives a look that I am very unhappy with with many of my clothes. The support is great. I think the engineering may be off on that size.

HerRoom Response: This issue with the center front can be the result of not having a deep enough cup. We would suggest going up a cup size.

This bra is extrememly supportive and holds you in, and I agree that this is a great alternative to a sports bra. However, I can't wear it for long periods of time because the underwire is so uncomfortable - it comes up really high under my arms. The bra claims that it minimizes bust lines 1.75 inches and it definitely does that! My bust line is much smaller, but it gives a slightly pointy look which I dont like so much. All in all - a good bra for the money. Erin from Houston, TX

The padding is far too forward on the strap. The material is itchy. The bra does not minimize but does give support and keeps me from bouncing. The line shows through on my shirts which is embarrassing. Lisa from Indpls IN

It supports and shapes really well. It's pretty itchy though. I thought that once I wore it a few days that I'd "break it in" and it would stop itching, but the seams are still bothering my skin. Maybe I have sensitive skin or something, but I'm learning to ignore the itch, because of how it makes me look. Abigail from Tempe, AZ

Very stablizing and comfortable. I have worn this bra for years, and I love the support it gives me. I do prefer the model 3364, but this is the next best. I find them to be very durable as long as I never, never, never put them in the dryer, even on the delicate cyle. The heat destroys the elasticity. It was an expensive lesson, but since I have'nt used the dryer, they last me about 3 years, washing them at least once a week. I don't mean I only change once a week, I have enough bras to last a week, with changing every day. june from rainier, oregon, usa

This bra is truly the only AFFORDABLE bra that holds me up and doesn't allow me to droop. They warp in the wash, so be wary about washing them amongst other items. Negative aspects about this bra: the straps' cushioning is not in the right spot, it's too forward, and not on the shoulder; also, the line that goes across the cup shows through on some shirts. All in all, GREAT BRA, the only one I wear! Melanie from NJ, USA

I have been wearing this bra for 2 years now and find that its really good at minimizing. Since I had my son my breasts went from 36d to 36ddd and this is the only bra that gives me the look, control, and piece of mind that i'm looking for. The only draw back is durability. I find that they sheer very quickly and therfore don't last very long. Terry from Bridetown,Barbados

I have been wearing Bail bras for years and enjoy their comfort and quality until now. I believe the Bali satin minimizer has changed its detail in the back of the bra. The ring that you are using now is plastic and cracks. Please go back to the original ring. Mary from Janesville, WI USA

I agree that the only weak point of this bra is the padding on the straps tends to be in front of the shoulder, not on the top of the shoulder. Therefore it isn't as functional as a comfort strap. However, for my size, 38D, it does minimize so I look better in clothing. Edwina from Lawrence, KS

I don't think this bra actually minimizes, but it does do a good job of lifting and supporting (so if anything, my 34D breasts look larger!). I actually bought this when I was looking for a sports bra; it ended up fitting the best and did a good job reducing "bounce". Fairly comfortable bra. Would recommend. Emily from Kentucky

Agree about the padding not hitting where it is supposed to. Not the best at minimizing either. I have tried other Bali bras that are better than this. K from MI

Im 19 and a 38D, this bra is the best I found. It minimizes and holds things in place, which is definitely what I want. The only complaint I have is they stop selling them around here, lol. Stacey from Beaufort, South carolina

I have worn this wonderful bra for years. It has the best support and the smoothest cups. It holds you and gives you a beautiful cleavage, unlike other bras for women with larger breasts that make you look pointy or unshapely. The only thing that is not perfect about this bra is that the extra padding on the shoulders hits to far forward. It offers some extra support but not always enough. I am a 38DDD and this is my favorite bra of all time. Angela from Newport, Oregon

It is hard enough to find a decent bra in large sizes that is fairly comfortable. This does tend to unravel after some wear. I would hope it would last longer but the selection is very limited. Now they have discontinued it in the 50DDD. Whats a woman to do...go braless? Yea right. Vicki from Florissant Mo USA

I am 53 and this is the best bra I have ever found for support, appearance and comfort. I won't wear anything else. No binding, no poking, no shoulder strap marks or pain - nothing but comfort, support and beauty. I have recommended it verbally for years so am happy to recommend it here as well. It's a beautiful looking bra as well. You will love it! Karen from Clarksville, TX
