I have really big boobs - 38DDD - and they are heavy. My bra straps dig into my shoulders and leave painful red marks. I think my shoulders may already be permanently dented from them. When I first tried this product, my initial reaction was, "These are amazing! Why didn't I get these sooner?" The Comfy Shoulder "pads" are a soft jelly-like plastic and stay firmly under the straps. For the first time, my bra straps weren't digging into my flesh. When I put my shirt on, my shoulders looked normal, nice and straight across, not dents! I was thrilled! I was so happy, I wore my Fashion Forms Comfy Shoulders to bed with my night bra (yes, I wear a bra at night - with boobs like mine, I have to). In the morning, the forms were in place under my bra straps. Then I got undressed to take a shower. My shoulders had rashes right under where the forms had been. I have sensitive skin and I guess I had some sort of allergic reaction to the plastic. I'm very disappointed - I was initially so happy with the product. Is it possible for Fashion Forms to make their product somehow hypoallergenic? Maybe they could make some sort of Comfy Form sock? If your skin is not at all sensitive, I still highly recommend these. They get five stars for working the way they're supposed to. But even though my skin is sensitive, it's not SO sensitive. The plastic must not be good for skin contact. That's why I'm giving a total of two stars. I am keeping the product - I will see if I can construct some kind of covering for them.
HerRoom Response: IF your straps are having to hold up so much weight that you are getting grooves in your shoulders, you probably have too large a band size. We would suggest you go down a band size and up a cup size to maintain the same cup volume. Straps should only be holding up 10% of your breast weight.
