The good: It fits! I've been having the worst time finding bras that fit and this one does. It's also very pretty, unlike so many other bras in my size.
The bad: It's not completely comfortable. The underwire pokes me under my arm, a problem that is fixable, but if I sit down, it digs right into my rib cage and that's a problem nothing can fix. I've come to the conclusion that for me, there is simply no such thing as a comfortable underwire bra, which is too bad, because I really was hoping this would be the bra I didn't have to return.
Goddess Response: Very often under-wire bras are uncomfortable because we’re not in the correct size, or (just as importantly) we don’t place the breasts into the cups properly. Make sure you’re bringing the breast tissue forward from the back to the front to fill the cups. The breasts should be supported by the under-wire somewhat like "eggs on a plate". There should be no space between the underside of the breast and the under-wire, and of course the under wire should sit behind, not on top of the breast tissue. If however you’re one of those people who just can’t tolerate an under-wire bra, we have some pretty soft-cup bras in your size that you might love.
