The only problem for me is that i chose the wrong size. The back support is great and makes me look like I am standing straighter. I pop out quite a bit by the end of day so should have chosen larger cups. The bras wash great and are really comfortable. No shoulder digs and marks even after 12 hours. Best bra I have ever found Barbara from San Antonio TX

This bra gives me a comfortable fix with no straps falling off my shoulders. Front closures help because of back problems. Had the same issues with closure, I did as they suggested and have no problems! Great for the back! Linda from Granbury, TX

I fractured my back a few months ago. My Dr and PT advised I start wearing a back support bra. Since this was the only one with adjustable straps, I ordered one. I was concerned that a couple of reviews stated the hook and eye closure would come unhooked during the day. The response was that they had ordered the wrong size. I ordered the correct size and it fits perfect and feels great, unfortunately the first 3 or 4 hooks came unhooked. I simply got a pair of pliers, gently pressed on the first 4 hooks to make the hook and eye closures a little tighter. Problem solved. They have not come unhooked since. Nina from Morristown, TN

Not enough support, even though I have the correct size.

Carnival Response:This bra averages almost 4 stars on reviews to date and is very well liked. A different size may offer better support. Sarah from Lacey, WA

The bra was too small and the snaps came open during the day. I managed to squeeze into the bra, but it is uncomfortable around the base. The cotton cups were comfortable.

Carnival Response: If you are experiencing both poor support and the bra cutting into your skin then you are wearing the wrong size, which is a big problem in our industry. This bra runs true to size and is one of our top selling bras. The sizing issue is more evident in a posture bra because they are less forgiving by nature. To better help figure out what your bra size is I would use their Bra Fitting Guide. Mary Kay from San Jose,CA

The straps couldn't be adjusted high enough to support my breasts. Didn't like the hook adjustments on the straps.

Carnival Response: The straps on this bra adjust upward or downward by 1 ¼”. If that is not enough to support you then you are wearing the wrong size. Hook adjustments are the only way to make a posture bra with adjustable straps. Trish from Omaha NE

It does not give me enough support and lift. The hooks keep coming unhooked several times a day and I have to re-hook it.

Carnival Response: If you are not getting enough support from this bra and the hooks are coming apart that means that you are wearing a size too big. You should either try a 34DD or a 36D. Hope from springfield, MO

I returned this bra. I couldn't even get it closed in front. Way too small both in girth and cup size.

Carnival Response: You must have chosen the wrong size. This bra is a back posture support bra which means that the back is made out of stretch Powernet. I would suggest you use the Universal Cup Size tool now available at HerRoom to help when deciding what size you need to purchase. Deborah from Pahrump/NV/USA

This bra is very comfortable and almost feels like a leisure bra. The only down side to this bra is that it has no support for larger/heavier busted women. I want a bra that supports me, holds me up instead of sagging down in front. I don't want my breasts sagging onto my tummy.

Carnival Response: You must be wearing the wrong size in this bra. It is not only supportive for larger breasted women but it has extra back support and adjustable straps that you could tighten to give your breasts the extra lift that they need.

I loved the front closure. Me and friend of mine love these bras because the straps do not slip and they stay in place. I do hate the way most racer back bras flatten you. I don't jog in it and neither does my friend. We wear racer backs all the time. What I liked about this one is it is all white and I could just do up 3 of the closures in the front and leave the others open. That made the whole bra more comfortable and gave me cleavage and did not smash chest or look bad in normal clothing for everyday wear. I will be ordering 2 more very soon. Thanks for make these bras in white and giving them great elastic in around the ribs so they stay in place. I would definitely rate this a 4 1/2 star. Char from pensacola florida usa

Disapointed with the size. Reviews say they run big! This one runs small! Carol from Plourde
