Very comfy, eco-friendly (mostly cotton), so those scary reports about man-made materials for bras and breast cancer can be largely forgotten with this one! It isn't the most beautiful bra in the world, but it is somewhat flattering and feel almost invisible. Glad I got it! Babette from Chicago

I love the fit, the lack of lining in the cups and it allows you to have support but be your shape. Sharon from Boulder, CO. USA

I love this bra. I do not want anything that shapes me. I like the underwire support and the stretch lace cups. They allow you to be your shape. I do not like lined bras. I don't care if the nipple is showing through. I like a natural look and this bra gives that. Sharon from Boulder,CO

Some 36Cs are too large in the cup for me. This style fits fine. I would prefer a little more lift to the support, but it's very pretty and comfortable, and the mostly-cotton fabric is something I'm always happy to find. Cheryl from Kansas City, MO

In the past I've found that if washed by machine with unhooked clasps (even on delicate and in a washing bag) hooks may rip the fabric. With that in mind I'll see how this new one wears with more careful washing. A tiny bit scratchy brand-new, but I'm hoping that with a few washings that will ease. B from NH

I have been on a long search for a cotton stretch bra that would fit well. I ordered this one in a 34-B as well as a 36-A to determine the best fit. I am keeping the 36-A. I would prefer a front closure, and no matter how many bras I have tried in the past, none seem to have long enough straps, even thought adjustable, I have to put them down all the way in order to fit. I am 5'6" and a slender 120lbs. so does anyone else run into this problem, seems the bras are no longer cut as they used to be. I am keeping this bra, because it is a very comfy fabric, fits better than any others, and gives the most comfort, although I still occasionally find myself tugging at it to bring it down. I am still gaining weight back after an illness, so I believe I will fill it out more and find it to be a better fit. I would recommend this to others, for comfort and support it really works! joanna from North Carolina

A bra that fits me! I can throw out all the things that ride up, fall down, twist sideways and poke. This bra fits me like a glove without the padding or the formed cups that feel like a Nordic breastplate. The band is smaller than other 32's which is good for me, as it stretches I can tighten it unlike other bras which I start at the tightest hook. I have laundered the 2 I bought and plan to purchase 2 more soon as I can. I'm serious about throwing my current drawer full of lousy fits out. cecelia from United States

Even though I'm small, I dislike wearing padded bras. This is one of the few I can find that isn't padded or made of microfiber which I find itchy. It's a very nice, high quality bra that offers proper support without excess in a small size. Mary

The would be a great bra if the cups didn't go up so high. I feel like I have to grapefruits hanging from two slings. The material is great! The back strap seems to be cut smaller than most 36c's I ran into this before with Greiner, I love the brand in the sheer bra they no longer sell. It was cut nice the first time I purchased it, but the second time was cut like this bra. Also, on the back I agree with the other person something very picky. I will be return and keeping the two wacoal's. Deborah from Pa

This bra has turned out to be a total disaster. It's lovely and fits great, but it wasn't until I took all the tags off and wore it for about 15 minutes I realized the problem. There is something about the clasp area that drives me wild - a sharp edge or stiff fabric, something that forces me to rip the whole thing off after about 15 minutes. I'll literally never be able to wear it. Dana from Ironwood/MI/US

this is a very lovely item. It fits well and has a very smooth and comfortable feel. The cotton is particularly nice...this is a very good brand in general. kathy

The band is to big. I have it fastened in the last set of hooks and am falling out the bottom. I ordered two bras from this company and one was a perfect fit (8466) so I didn't try this one on beforing washing and the fit is big I can't wear it. I love that it is cotton and a lace mesh it should be so comfortable but the size is way off.

Grenier Response: This bra when dyed black can sometimes be overdyed which may take away some of the elasticity in the yarns and explain why it was too tight. Please contact HerRoom to return the bra back to Grenier for inspection and complete refund.
