This bra has become my every day bra...I need one without wires, and this one is a great comfortable basic. Bonnie from Nevada, USA

I think I am going to send them back. I wanted to know if they changed the fabric. I have been wearing the same bra in a 36B for years. Loved and ordered a 36 C. It fits the same as the 36 B without the support. so I was disappointed in the fit and the support. Jeanne from Longwood, Florida

I've been wearing this Grenier bra for years because of its high cotton content. (I dislike synthetic fabrics next to my skin) This bra is comfortable, well fitting, and I use it as a daily wear bra. It is also good for light exercise workouts too, if that's our primary purpose for buying it. Durability is good as well. I just bought one for my teen daughter and it's now one of her favorites, along with the Grenier tee shirt bra. Michele from Cambridge, MA, USA

I purchased this as a sleep bra. I'm not sure why it's even listed as a sports bra, it has no support whatsoever, but works for my purpose. My main complaint, the reason for only two stars, is the scratchy seams at the top and bottom of the straps. I couldn't wear it until I sewed some little patches of soft fabric inside to cover up the rough patches that were so unbearable I had to get out of bed to take it off. It looked to me like the ends of the straps were burned to keep them from fraying and that resulted in hard ends and red skin have wearing for minutes. I'll use this after my adjustments, but would not purchase again. Venesa from TN

It is very comfortable as an every day bra.I ordered a cup size larger (less compression) and it was more comfortable. Jules

I have worn this bra to work for years (decades?). It is much, much more comfortable than underwire, but with decent support, comfortable straps, wide band. I am a huge fan. Karen from New York

I love this bra! It gives excellent support without underwires. Living in a tropical climate, the comfort of cotton and its breathability and absorbency makes for perfect comfort. Joanna from Tortola, British Virgn Islands

Discovered this bra decades ago and so glad they still make it. It's the only reliably comfortable all-cotton bra that I've found. It also stands up well with time, usually it's about 2-3 years before it's started to be too stretched out to wear anymore. Lisa from MN

Love this bra, a repeat purchase. I use as a daily bra, not really enough support for work-outs. Cotton is soft, no itching! Barbara from Gardnerville, NV - USA

This bra is perfect as far as cup size, comfort, and style. My only complaint is that the band is a bit large. I have it in the last hook, and it is just right, but I am afraid that with wear it will stretch out and be too large. The 32 would have been much too small. Eszti from Amston, CT USA

Good for an every-day, light workout bra. Cotton is nicest here in our warm weather. Sharon from Kailua

Great fit, so comfortable. Straps stay put! Not too "mashing", but enough support to ride (horses) in. I've got 4 of them now! Wendy from Bozeman, Montana

I love this bra; it's so comfortable without the underwires. The straps are adjustable and stay put on the shoulders. My only complaint is that fabric does not hold up well. Ann from Milton, MA

The only complaint I have about this bra is that the back hook digs into my back. If the hook and eye feature was just a little longer I would have not complaints at all.

Grenier Response:We believe the back hooks digging into your back may be a result of the bra fitting too tightly, and may be avoided if you try a bigger band size. Helen from Brooklyn NY USA

This is the best cotton bra that I have been able to find! It's comfortable with a great natural-looking molded fit and perfect to wear during the summer when it is hot. Only two things to consider when selecting this bra: It's not quite as supportive as the Grenier 8576 to me so use it for everyday wear or light exercise only. Also, it's so light weight that be care should be taken if there's a "show through" factor. Skip the white color when wearing a thin white shirt to eliminate that problem. Stephanie from Tulsa, OK

This bra runs extremely small for its size and has no support. It also has very cheap material. I am so disappointed after several hours of shopping.

Grenier Response: We recommend that you try a 34B instead. Diana

This is a nice bra and it is very comfortable. If you are large it may not give you the support you need Carol from Naples , FL
