The first time I wore this, I was able to jog and have my 40G bosom stay near motionless. It's THAT supportive. It is virtually the ONLY molded cup bra that doesn't give me a grotesque, unnatural shape. The cup shape is perfect and completely natural looking, and dense enough to totally prevent embarrassing nipple show. There was no spillage around the cleavage or the armpit, the band lies flat and snug around my ribcage, and the straps STAY PUT. As for the bra being warm, well, I work outside all summer and this was not even a consideration for me. I used to wear the stretchy, seamless lace cup bras, but they are SO thin all eyes would be on my nipples... NO WAY will I ever go back to THAT.
At first, it was hard for me to spend the $68 to buy this bra... it still is. But, there really is no better bra for the money. I won't buy anything else. It's so close to optimum in every way, I can justify the expenditure.
My first one is almost a year old and STILL performing beautifully, with no misshapen cups (I only MACHINE wash it too) or wire poke-through, so it's very durable as well.
In reading through the reviews here, it sounds like some women are just wearing the wrong size bra to me... maybe because us busty gals are so used to settling for ill-fitting bras? I had none of that with this bra. It's fit is far more precise than any other brand I've tried, so if you don't love this bra, try a few more sizes. It's just so hard for me to comprehend how anyone could not be satisfied with this bra.
This bra comes with my HIGHEST recommendation.
