This truly is the Cadillac of all bras! It is SUPER comfortable, but HUGE as well! I have to confess, while I'm thrilled while wearing this bra, when it's off, I can't help but be how shocked I am at how large it is! Vanity aside, though, this really is an incredibly supportive bra, which gives great shape without sacrficing any comfort. I'm even able to wear them at the gym (I only do low impact activities, though), and it is more comfortable than any sports bra I've worn (but maybe that's just because the bra fits for a change!).
As for sizing, a lot of people have commented that the band size up has worked well for them. Not so for me. I ordered this bra in a 40G at first, and I could barely fill it out. There was extra room in the cups, which was very evident in lying down!
HerRoom Response: HerRoom suggests you go up a band size if you are a 40 band size or larger, and a C cup or larger. Ruth, since your size is a 38, we would not have suggested you go to a 40 band size.
