I have been wearing Grenier products for 20 years. They are comfortable, well made and have high quality materials. They also last very long. Laura from Ketchum Idaho USA

I range between a size 4 and 6. When size 4 (as am now) wear 32B. (For ex., would wear 32B now in Mystere Tisha.) The band on this Grenier bra to me is a little small. Had to put on last hook right at the beginning, but it stretched some, so I think it will eventually loosen up. It was comfortable to wear for many hours like all day and to sleep in, too. I sag some and so it does not offer much support, but for light, breathable, mostly cotton sleep bra, this was just fine. H.S. from Oklahoma

This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn! I love the soft cotton with no itchy nylon threads. It's the only bra I will wear, and I will wear this style as long as they make it. TJ from Westminster, CO, U.S.A

Grenier's products always fit well, and hold-up. This is the first time I have tried this style. I was looking for three things: softcup, natural fiber & neutral color. Pleased on all points. The bra feels like it gives me support without strap pain, and the shape is natural and comfortable as well. E. Davis from NJ

I expected a little more padding, but will use this all cotton and very comfortable bra for the hot, steamy days of summer when less is definitely more. Lynn from Lake Clear, NY USA

I'm a big fan of Grenier: all cotton, no wires. However the band of this particular style runs small in their line. The straps are thick (not wide, thick) and heavier-duty than the cups or band, which I found interesting. And ultimately do not like. Of the Grenier styles I've tried, I like this one the least.

If I had the normal problems, I would rate the highest, however, I am a mastectomy victim and had many problems leaving me very sensitive in the bra area plus a serious latex allergy. I chose your bra for 2 reasons...1-It is latex free and 2- it is a molded cup. I am extremely sensitive to any seams. Actually, I wear your bra wrongside out and it is quite comfortable. When worn the proper way the seams irritate my skin. It is the best I have found thus far and think you should make it known more that it is a latex-free bra. To make it perfect for people like me (and there are many!) a finished inside out bra would be wonderful....Bo Bo from Orange County, USA

It fits well enough, washes well, feels fine, but doesn't give any lift in clothes. Marilyn from Providence, RI USA

Another great bra from Grenier. This one, also, should be ordered a size up from one's usual size (36 if you normally wear 34). Soft, comfortable and NO UNDERWIRES! Jo from Williams, OR, USA

I would love this bra - the material is so soft - if I could wear it. It is too small around. I guess I should have gotten a size bigger but I'm always a 36 so I couldn't quite believe it. I'll have to get extenders at some point, but for now I just can't wear it. Meredith from Massachusetts

I love this bra. I can't bring myself to wear any other one. I am heartbroken that this bra is no longer available in black. Karen from

This is a nice cotton bra without underwires. Based on the previous comments I ordered a 38B rather than my usual 36B and am happy with the fit. Susan from Matthews, NC

Great fit, and I would give it 5 stars except that the fabric covering the straps falls apart after one or two washes. Unfortunate. Rebecca from Chicago

Runs a little small around the chest...had to use first hook: however, it's very comfortable and cups fit VERY well. Phyllis from Omaha, NE. USA

I was very disappointed to find that this bra was WAY mis-sized. I ALWAYS wear a 36A in every bra I have ever tried on. This one TOTALLY doesn't fit me and seems to be almost 2" too small in the band. And of COURSE, there is no size 38A. I was very disappointed because I really like the style and would have bought several if they fit correctly. Carleena from Oakland, CA

"Almost 100% cotton", huh? It's 90% cotton. Shame on you.

HerRoom Response: We apologize if you did not like our characterization of the fabric content. We clearly state the fabric content a little further down the page. If a bra is 100% cotton, it will not hold its shape, and throughout the day, will stretch out. Cotton bras really need to have some spandex in them if they are to give any kind of all-day support.

I've loved wearing these bras for many years. They're close to the comfort of wearing nothing while feeling supported. For the fit, my experience has been that I measure as a 34B, but need to buy a 36B. This disparity has been consistent through several sizes as I've gained and lost weight. However, I've found that the Grenier Sports Bra 8505 runs true to size expectation. Anita from Texas

Cotton, fit and comfort!!!!!! No muss, no fuss, no froofroo; just plain old does the job. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. It's especially good for sensitive skin, since it's all cotton with no annoying trim. The molded shape really works. The only drawback is that when you wear this bra, nipples show under a top made of thin or knit fabric. So I've been buying shirts with front pockets, pintucks, textured fabric, gathers, etc., just so I can wear this bra more often.

HerRoom Response: HerRoom offers several nipple covers (some reusable) to prevent this effect. Click here to see your many options. Melissa from Oregon
