A bit bulky in the back, but otherwise nice and cottony, and I love front close. Unfortunately, I had to return it because the 34 was too big around, and they don't make a 32 D or DD. Stretch from Southern California

Got the matching underwear at a local store and wanted the bra to go with. Like the fabric and back detail. Great fit. Amy from Harrisburg

Perfect racerback! Sometimes convertible bras become too tight on me when I convert them to racerback; this fits perfectly. I love it! Judith from Boston, MA

I love a racer back bra. Front opening, underwire. Think I may have ordered a size too small, or the wrong cup size. But, I love it and plan to order another later this week. Wyla Wyla from Rohnert Park, Ca. USA

Really pretty but don't think this front close gave enough support for me. Pat from Raleigh, NC

Unbelievable bra, goes with most things, supportive yet feels like I'm not wearing anything. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This bra is a perfect fit for me, comfortable and flattering. Like other racerbacks, the straps are no slip. It also gives nice lift and good coverage. I wear a 32C in this bra which runs a little smaller than other La Mystere bras. My only complaint is the color. I would greatly prefer nude to gray. KJ from Chapel Hill, NC, US

The cups on this bra were too small for me (and I have a Le Mystere Tisha bra in the same size that fits well). Also, the fabric was a bit scratchy in the back. It's going back, I'm afraid.

Le Mystere Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that our Heather bra did not work for you. Perhaps you would be interested in giving our 9518 Signature Comfort y-back bra a whirl. This bra will give you that fantastic y-back (yet a smooth version), along with fuller coverage and great neutral colors. We hope that you will give this bra a try as a great alternative to the Heather. Susan from PA

My husband loves this bra! Very, very comfortable. It oddly holds your breasts just a little wide from each other, but I still love it. Lisa from Ocala, FL

Great bra. I wear it while playing sports. I don't even notice that I have it on. The cotton is very breathable and not to mention how pretty the lace is. The best bra I've owned in a long time. Sky from Seattle

This is a beautiful garment and I love the lace detailing in the back. However, it doesn't hold your breasts in at all if you bend over. I'm a pretty solid 34DD, but if they made this in a larger cup size it might work better. emily from colorado

This bra is one of the most comfortable underwire brawl I have worn. I would be more than content and have bought several of them. It doesn't ride up during the day nor does it let you fall out. Gives you good cleavage which doesn't go away. pam from Aurora, Il.,U.S.A.

I have previously purchased LeMystere bras in size 36DD, but in this one, I would have needed a 36F. Regardless, the band fit perfectly and the fabric is very soft and comfy. I wish they made this one in a larger size. Lisa from Chicagoland, IL USA

I have been wearing a D in most other styles, however, I ordered both a D and DD in this style, because sizing is so variable. However, even the DD was way too small in the cups and I was hanging out all over. I'm sending this back. Why can't specs be consistent across sizes???

Le Mystere Response: Thank you for your feedback. We can understand your frustration. Please keep in mind that whenever you opt for a front closure, you risk losing some of the coverage that you receive in your bras that have a traditional back closure. This is due to the lack of center front coverage which is lost once you only have a tiny clasp in the front. So in essence, you lose about an inch or two of coverage to allow for the very open neck/bust line that this creates. A better option for you may be our Carina bra 9155 whose straps convert to a racer back. Although low in the front, this does in fact offer a bit more coverage than Heather at both the front and the sides. Good luck! herb from Western Maryalnd

Very nice fit, and quite feminine. The shape of the bra is very flattering, and it looks great under all my workout gear. Lacey from Idaho Falls/Idaho/USA

If it wasn't for the fact that the underwires on this bra seem huge and dig low into the rib cage, this would be great bra. Fabric is breathable, support and shape are good. Darn underwire...

Le Mystere Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that overall you believe this is a good bra. Although this is a racer back style bra with an open neckline, it does have full side coverage so that there is no side spillage. This may be why you are experiencing the discomfort. However, this bra is one of two racer back styles offered by Le Mystere. The other, our Signature Y-Bra does have less coverage and may be better suited for you if you find Heather to be a bit much. I do encourage you to give this one a try. Good luck! yaya from los angeles

Very nice bra. Love the cotton, and the lace detailing is a nice touch. However this chafed liked MAD under my arms. Now, Tomima says this is probably because I am petite....but at 5'3.5" tall I am pretty close to being average. I think either the band is riding high or the underwires just come up too high. I have not had this problem in cheaper brands, even though I have to buy a 34C and alter the back to make it smaller. I was hoping to actually find a bra in the right size instead of having to do ugly alterations to the band, but it seems like I will just keep on altering instead. dk

I absolutely love this bra. I wish it came in more colors, though. I believe it is one of the best fitting bras I have ever had. Thank you so much. Karen from Gulf Breeze, FL, USA

Generally the size bra I purchased fits me. And intially I was thrilled by the comfort and fit of this bra. So I removed the tags and wore for about half an hour before discovering that when I bend over at all, I spill out the top and the spillage continues to show after I stand up. CJ from Medford, OR
