Bra is a lot more open in the cleavage than shown in catalog, so I added a hook and eye fastener half way up the front so I can achieve more coverage. In spite of this the bra is very comfortable and especially attractive. This is the only non-wire front hook bra I could find that will NOT crete a "uni-boob" when fastened. Four and a half stars!

I returned item because it did not hold the breast up enough and not good control from the straps. pam

The bra is very pretty and the racer back is an awesome feature. I had trouble opening and closing the front because I couldn't see the hooks well enough. So what I do is hook it all the way it should be and slip it over my head like I would a t-shirt. Sounds weird I know but hey whatever it takes to be comfortable. Carolyn from Dallas, Texas, USA

This would be the perfect bra if indeed it were "molded" as the descrlption says. However, it has everything else I was looking for which is hard to find in one bra - quick and easy to put on, good for low cut tops, and no slipping straps. Wish it came in more colors. Lori from Zionsville, IN

It's really pretty. I expected a little more support. My husband thinks I look "saggy" in it. Louise from usa

I liked the look and the fabric of this bra, but the sharp edges of the front closure scrapes the skin and is very uncomfortable. Lisa from Washington State USA

This bra feels and looks so natural, like you're not even wearing a bra, yet it holds you a little firm. The fabric is beautiful. I would like to have had the closures a little more vertical than horizontal, but this bra is perfect for a low cut top, especially if the material of the top is soft. Dorothy from Atlanta, Georgia

I need a 'molded' bra and the item I received was not. I had washed it before I put it on, so could not return it. The racer back is extremely comfortable and will be what I get in the future to avoid fighting with shoulder straps, but this bra is useless to me. Mary from Silver Lake, WI, USA

The fit was good however the front fasteners are very uncomfortable. They feel like sand paper on my skin. Debbie from crestwood ky

The bra is nice looking, and easy to close in front, but gives me no shape or uplift (and I am only a B cup) I ordered 2 , but will return the other. Phyllis from albany, ny

When I read the description, I saw "molded". Where is the molded part! I usually like an underwire bra because I am quiet top heavy but since it said molded I thought I could get away with none. I like the look and feel but no support whatsoever!! Tara from Lufkin, TX, USA

I ended up returning the size, as it was too big and ordering one size down. I've worn the bra twice and it's the most uncomfortable bra I've every had. It's one of the prettiest,but pretty doesn't count when it' hurts to wear it. Sandy from Mims, FL USA

I really like this bra, I like that the front closure is hooked (like the back of other bras) and not a slide together button thing. The only complaint I have is that the band is a little wide and rough (where the hook area is). I have a high rib cage and it kind of rubs my skin from the bottom area of the closure. Otherwise I think this bra is great. DeAnna from Eden Prairie, MN, USA

A totally lovely, feminine bra. The closures irritate me though. It's so pretty I put up with it. Stef from Los Angeles

This bra is best for wearing low cuts blouses or dresses. It is also very comfortable. It does not provide the best support. Gina from Salem

I purchased this bra for my mother. It looked like it would be great for her. She likes to wear front closing bras with just one plastic fastener in the front. It is very difficult to find this style. I thought this bra would be easy for her to snap. Most front closing bras have about 5 hooks in the front and this one has only a few. Any bra with a hook and eye is difficult for her to put on. She can not see the hook and eye. Lining up the proper hook with the eye is difficult for her. You carry the older style bra that has one larger fastener in the front? Anna Marie Anna Marie from Hinsdale/NH/USA

Haven't left the house without an underwire for more than 40 years. This is like going out in your pjamas, except you feel supported. Great bra. Ceal from Urbana

Nice to have the option of making tighter or looser. Wish there were more front closure, racer back models. Overall, a good product, fits good and looks good. Nancy from Jersey City NJ

The band is stiff, and while it doesn't roll like every other bra I own, it starts to feel like an iron band as the day wears on. Also, the lining and the lace separate and pull differently over the breast. I finally had to cut the lace off, and just leave the lining. Also, there was a small hole in the lining of the bra when it arrived. Disappointed.

Leading Lady Response: The band is designed to be firm and stabilizes this bra. The lining and lace are different fabrications are proportioned properly. We would have/will replaced the bra free of charge if there is a small hole. Janet from WI

This was bought as a gift for my sister who is 86 years old - she was having problems finding a 40 B bra in any stores in Philadelphia and I couldn't find any in the stores in Virginia. It was great to find what I was looking for on the HerRoom. Mary A. from Great Falls, Virginia

I'm hoping that, after washing & rinsing with a fabric softener, the irritation from the closure will lessen. Kate from New Lenox IL

I had a double mastectomy and have been searching for a comfortable wireless bra since my surgery. This bra seemed like a good fit but the elastic band is so wide and firm that it kept digging into my ribcage so I am sending it back. I guess I'll keep searching. Robin from Bensalem PA

incredibly uncomfortable and is on it's way back to be returned. The clasps in the front have sharp corners on both sides and there is no way to tuck them or cover them. They just stab into my breasts and ribs.

Leading Lady Response: The corners soften after washing. alicia from scio oregon usa
