I just needed to tell someone how terrible the Goddess: Jayne Soft Cup Bra is. Well, not all of it is terrible. Everything but the shoulder bands are great - the cup is nice and it fits well. However the company should fire the person who made the straps. Instead of the normal straps, with the slide-able adjuster, this bra has a front closure that is metal. First the metal digs into my shoulder/chest area. Second, the metal closure does not manage to stay perpendicular to the ground (in the right position to correctly hold the strap), it twists and turns as you move, so by the end of the hour it is on its side, digging into my chest in another horrible way. Third, it is one of those closures with teeth (bad idea) but the teeth don't actually grab onto the material and hold it properly, so with breasts my size, it just causes a slow slide of the strap so it's as if I am not wearing a bra at all. Additionally, the strap itself is just a long, well strap, looped through that metal teeth closure. When it is adjusted up snug, the strap ends just flap, out your neck hole, and out your arm holes of the shirt. Otherwise, when the metal teeth in the closure allows the strap to slide, there is nothing keeping the strap from sliding completely out of the closure. There are little bands (like on your watch) to catch the ends of the straps, but they're not effective at all, and when the strap slides, the end slides out of the band, and you're back to flapping straps.
If you are on the smaller end of the spectrum of breast size, you may not have the problems I've encountered. However if a company markets this bra to someone size 46K, the bra better hold my breasts up. If I wanted saggy boobs, I'd go braless.
We recommend folding the strap back under itself, so that it’s in fact doubled up (the attached “watch strap” will help to keep it in place). You’ll find the support is firmer, and the straps won’t move at all in the metal clasps.
If it’s possible for you to wear an under-wire bra, you might want to try our Alice (GD6040) bra. Alice is one of our favorites, and will give you maximum lift, shaping and support.
