After reading so many glowing reviews, I was hoping this would be the bra for me. Unfortunately, it is not. The lack of an underwire made me feel unsupported, "droopy" and unattractive. My husband had the same reaction.
I had raised welts between my breasts, and on my sides from the band rolling up and rubbing. It took days for the welts to heal, and in the meantime, I had to "let the girls run free", which is emotionally uncomfortable for me outside of my home.
The color is beautiful and true to the picture. I liked the 5-hook set up in the back, and the padded shoulder pads/straps, however, the excess strap kept coming out of its slot, so I sewed the whole thing in place. The top two "eyes" are about to fall out, and the top hook fell out 2 weeks ago. I purchased this bra in August 2015 and it's December2015, so the craftmanship is substandard.
My search for a COMFORTABLE, WEAR ALL DAY, plus-size bra continues.
Elila Response: Always wash your bras before wearing them to remove any finishes. If the bra band is moving around while you wear it go down a band size and up a cup. Be sure to have at least 3 bras in your wardrobe to give each one time to recover from wearing. One to wear, one to wash and one to rest.
