Goddess has a very good range of bras in lots of colors and different designs and is one of the few brands that goes up to a size M or N. Hooray! I tried to wear this bra (a lovely red one) with the underwire, but after a couple of hours, I found it so painful that I had to give up. Unfortunately this bra is not at all comfortable. It might be a little better for me if it came in size 44 L in a soft cup design, which probably provides support in a different way. It is not very supportive without underwire, as you would expect. When you are a size L, you need more than three hooks for back support. The band cuts in underneath the breasts, causing pain and bruising to the ribcage in that area. An extra star to Goddess for having such a good size range, though not enough in soft cup designs. (Yes, I have tried the Jayne. I have not yet tried the Alice.) On the whole, I am very happy with Her Room. A very big thank you to all of you women (or ladies) who have written such helpful reviews! They have been so helpful for me ordering bras from overseas.
We’re so glad you’re enjoying our size range and choice of colors, but we’re not happy that you’re finding this particular bra to be uncomfortable! Very often it’s the size not the style which causes discomfort, and as our bras are so very “fit-specific” it’s essential that you’re in the correct size for the ultimate in support, and most of all, comfort. Also it’s just as important to put the bra on properly as it is to find the correct size and shape. Make sure you’re “swooping and scooping” your breast tissue from the back to the front into the cups. The under-wire should surround all of the breast tissue and sit behind the breast tissue on bone. This will make all the difference in how a bra fits! (Please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit to help. Also, it might be, that like many women you’re just more comfortable in a soft-cup bra. As you know our Alice bra is offered in a wire-free version Goddess Alice bra 6040
. You mention you’d be happier with 4 hooks in the band for added support. The good news is the band in Goddess 6040 has 4 hooks! I think you’ll love our Alice soft cup which goes to an M-cup, and is super-supportive and comfy.
