So pleased to find a cotton bra that is affordable. It's so nice to have a bra with straps that stay secure on my shoulders. The cups run a little fuller than most brands. Love the comfort of this bra. Jacqueline from United States

I ordered a band size up on the recommendation of another reviewer, but I found the band size on this bra to be accurate. The 34 band is slightly too big for my 32 frame. Tara from Cambridge

I have sensitive skin, so I thought this one would be good bra for me - but it's way too itchy on my back. I still give it 2 stars because it's my personal problem, and overall the shape looks good. Helena from San Diego, CA USA

I like a cotton, un-padded, no-wires bra for everyday wear and this bra fits the bill. I wish the straps were narrower but I can live with it as is. It's a well made bra and fits well. Susan from San Diego, CA USA

I thought this would become my favorite bra, but the hook closure has a sharp corner making it very uncomfortable. CBF from NM

Band was tight, and fabric felt low quality, especially the elastic trim, which is a bit scratchy. Straps are very short. Kate from Vermont

I give item a 4 star instead of a 5, due to there was hardly any padding in the cups. The straps were perfect though, loved their comfort. Lynn from Anderson, SC

The straps were too short for my size so I lengthened the straps. I also needed an insert to increase the bra to a size 38. The cups were fine. I wish you would make a bra with size 38A. It used to be a common size. The material is cotton, which I like, but I don't want to squeeze myself into a size 36. Ingrid

The straps are short. I wish this bra came in size 38A with same cups and longer straps. I will have to use an insert to widen the band and I will have to move the straps in to prevent them from sliding down the shoulders. Unfortunately this is the best bra that I can find. I wish that sizes 38A and 38AA would come back.

GrenierResponse: We do offer some great fitting bras in size 38A, which might be more appropriate for this customer: our Grenier No Wire Bra 8564 has no wire, is made in a silky Nylon/ spandex fabric, shoulder straps are adjustable in the back and the bra cups are moulded (without padding) so there are no seams on the bust. If looking for more opacity, I suggest Grenier Soft Cup Spacer Foam Bra 8593 moulded in a tridimensional “spacer” fabric which breaths and conforms easily to different breast shapes. Irma (pend)

This bra is the best, of all the cotton bras on this site. I tried them all. Soft cotton with Good support and feel. No extra padding or overcontruction to give a good supportive lightweight bra. mary from ypsilanti Michigan usa

Bra is VERY comfortable. Stays in place...does not ride up or move at all. Have always worn a B cup, but in this bra a C cup fits perfect. Ginny from Middleton, Id. Canyon

I am a 32A and am slim and don't need a lot of support, but this bra shows it all: my nipples show, and the material is all bunchy. I'm returning this bra. runnergirl from New York

The fit is snug. If I were ordering again, I might order a 36C. Rosa from Washington, DC

I had high hopes for this bra, but it just squished my girls to my chest. A problem with all wire-free bras I've tried is that the top line of the cups (along one's cleavage) cut into the upper part of my breasts. Even the ones that fit better, like the Hanro Sublime Soft Cup bra, leave marks along that line. It's not that the cups are too small. If I go up a cup size the cups have empty space that isn't filled. It's that they are not shaped right for the shape of my breasts. I wish someone would make a wire-free bra that lifted one's breasts and didn't cut into the top of them! PW

I liked this bra and kept it. It is soft and comfortable; the first cotton bra I have ever tried. It doesn't provide a whole lot of support but then I don't need all that much, so it worked for me. I liked that the cups fit just right, as I tend to have a problem with cups being too big. Grenier bands tend to run tight but this one, in the natural color, was larger than the Grenier Vintage model I also purchased, and a little more comfortable. I am not sure how well this bra will wear but we will see. The bra does give a flattering shape. Kathy from Pennsylvania

Band size on this bra runs extremely small. I would order up an entire size. Same size in the 8505 is almost too big. This model was so tight I couldn't put it on. chris from ca

The most comfortable bra ever! My search is over. I was trying to find a non-wired, non-padded, natural bra and this one fits the bill. The bra is very comfortable. The only negative is the straps. I wish they were slightly thinner. Otherwise, it's perfect. Very good quality. Jane from Washington DC

Bra is very comfortable and is the best fitting bra I've found in years. Stays in place and does not ride up even when I'm cleaning the horses stalls! Virginia from Middleton, Idaho

I have always worn a size 32B bra, but with this model I had to go to a 34C to get a good fit. Monika

I have had breast cancer and am very sensitive to anything but cotton so I am still having trouble with the elastic in the straps and the metal hooks. I get very itchy from those areas, thought the top of the straps could be smaller, thinner. Thanks

Grenier Response: Thank you for your comment, we understand that you might be very sensitive due to your condition; I would suggest Grenier 8505 Sports bra, I think it would better suit your needs due to the hardware being covered. leslie from Col. usa

I'll be sending this back. I could barely breath when I fastened the band it was so tight. And something about the fabric itches. (Wierd since it's all cotton)

Grenier Response: It is difficult to give feedback not knowing your correct measurements. As far as the fabric goes, the bra is a blend of 90% Cotton and 10% Spandex, which is very common. We are sorry to hear that it did not mesh well with your skin. Louise from Germantown, NY

This bra is not made for full figured women even as a leisure bra. The racerback clip in the back is not as pictured and is not comfortable at all.

Grenier Response: You are correct about the picture, we have since fixed the problem. The bra was manufactured with different color sliders than what was originally shown. It had no effect on the fit of the bra. Laura from mississippi

Comfortable bra. It is shaped much differently than the lace bra I recently reviewed, but still a comfortable lightweight bra. While it is not a feminine lacy bra, colors are available. Sharon from Maryland

Bra lacks any support...even if you are a small cup size you still want some comfort and support!! Straps kept coming off shoulders regardless of any attempted adjustments made. Would not order this item again. In fact I will be returning them unfortunately. My quest yet continues for a bra that will give good support and stay in place!!

Grenier Response: Style 8566 is one of our best selling bras, it has a double ply cotton cup and caters to a small figure, there is also a back hook to attach the shoulder straps together in the back, forming an “X” holding the shoulder straps in place for customers with drooping shoulders.
