The bra wasn't very comfortable. I also didn't realize it was a "minimizer" when I chose it. The fabric over the nipple area bunched up and was very unattractive. Returned for refund. Lori from North Richland Hills, TX

Loved the bra. The thing that would make it PERFECT is something sewn into the bottom of it that gives a little more lift. I noticed that while it minimizes beautifully, my breasts sit lower than any of my other minimizers. I'm not fortunate to look as perky as the woman in the picture. I love that I can have a bra that has 2 hooks instead of 4 which makes me feel like I'm wearing armor. The straps seem to sit a little higher on my shoulder thus allowing me to wear a sleeveless top without the strap showing like my other bras. If it does, at least the straps look pretty with the scalloped edges. I would like to see the material a little less stretchy for good support, to match the rest of the construction of the bra.

The Good: The material is soft. The back is cut nicely. There is some shaping on the sides of the cups.
The Not-so-Good: This is a bra I truly did not like. The wires in the front are so high, the cups are huge but don't define you, the material is too stretchy to there is little support, and the wires on the side of the cup came up much too high. I am baffled at how many people love this bra and I truly found little to like. It didn't even minimize in any way.
Per sizing, I think the cups may be a bit small (for me). In the bra's defense, I normally wear a 40 G or H. But, in some bras I can wear a 42 3D (similar cup size to a 40G). In this bra, the underwire did not sit on my breastbone, nor did the middle of the bra. Since it isn't exactly my size, I can't say it's definitely small, but I can wear some other 42 3D's and be OK.

HerRoom Response: It's not really fair to judge this bra unless you are in the correct size. A 42DDD is a very different size than a 40G - especially in a minimizer. A minimizer needs to be your correct size. Annie from Chicago/IL/USA

This is the best bra I ever owned. The comfort is amazing. I been having so much trouble trying to get a proper fitting bra and this is it. I will not purchase any other I found my bra. Susan from 92 New Cranberry Hazleton PA 18202

I've tried other minimizer bras but none like this. I love it! Comfortable, attractive and best of all, I can wear form fitting tops without calling attention to myself. Jayne I. from Boston, MA

This is a great bra. The underwire does not hurt because of the extra padding on the sides over the wire. Great idea. I recommend the bra to anyone who has given up wearing wired bras because they are so uncomfortable. Barbara from Glendale Heights, IL, USA

I really wanted to like this bra, I was looking for a seamless minimizer, however unless you are sitting or standing absolutely straight the underwires start to gap open. Almost like it comes up too high. I wanted to make this my "depend on a great fit" bra but now its my "wear around the house" bra because I don't like the way it fits. Because of the gapping (or the wires sorta poking out in front) I don't wear it out of the house, I don't like the way it looks on me.

HerRoom Response: The forward underwires in front could be because your cup size is too small. Try going up a cup size. Also, you might need stronger underwires. Brands like Goddess, elomi and others that cost a little more have stronger and more rigid underwires. LucindaLC from Bowie, Maryland

I first purchased this item at Macys but this is an unusual size I guess and they never seem to have them. So it was great being able to order on the Web and I didn't have to travel to get them either......yea! Martha from Massachusetts, USA

This bra is comfortable and makes my button down shirts look better - no gaping at the buttons in the bust. Sara from Saskatchewan

This is a comfortable enough bra, but you are wasting your time with it if you need it as a minimizer, because it doesn't minimize at all! I've given it one star since it is sold as a minimizer. The best minimizer I've found thus far is the Chantelle Volupte. plc7c from Washington, DC

I usually wear a 34DDD, but this bra worked in DD. It doesn't minimize much--shirts still don't button over this one--it just doesn't maximize. It's comfortable, but not great quality. Too thin fabric, too stretchy, a little flimsy feeling. But for a yard work/grocery store bra, it's worth the price and lasted just as long as more expensive bras. Bella from Connecticut
