This bra is not for petite women. I am 5'2" and the straps don't adjust short enough for me (a common problem I have with bras), so the cups don't lift up my 34DD/34E breasts at all. Without any lift, my breasts are just too heavy and the bra makes me look droopy under clothes--not the desired look for a 31-year-old! A salesperson at a boutique bra store told me I could solve the strap length problem by criss-crossing the straps in back. That works for about 3 hours, and then the pressure of the straps digs into my shoulders so deeply that I want to tear off the bra. I guess the distribution of weight doesn't work for me with the straps criss-crossed. Also, the bra technically can be worn strapless, so the top and bottom all along the band are lined in silicone strips. The silicone gets very sweaty during warm weather. All that aside, the bra is excellent quality and the slight texture of its fabric does not show through clothes. If it supported me better/lifted my breasts better, it would be a winner. I just need to be 3 inches taller for that to work. Personally I've had better luck with the cheapo Vanity Fairs. I have to replace them every 4-6 months because they wear out, so it's not cost effective, but I get much better support and look better under clothes.

Marie Jo Response: Support comes 95% from the band, not the straps, so go down a back size, up a cup (32F). Marie Jo Tom 012-0826 has a 32F, and the band does not have silicone. christina from Nashville

Just love my new Marie Jo bra. Can't tell you how comfortable it is. Ladies, you have to try it to believe it. Throwing out all my bras, am going to buy more of these. When our girls are happy we are happy. Right girls? jennifer from roseburg, ore, usa

Absolutely beautiful, and comfortable. This is a great everyday bra, although is a bit pricey. This particular model is made from a thin knit fabric, so it is not appropriate for under thin t-shirts, but gives you a beautiful rounded and lifted shape that looks good with everything else. I have hard time finding pretty, comfortable, and supporting bras for my size. Most other bras feel like I am wearing armor or they are just too ugly. Not so with Marie Jo. I was skeptical at the beginning, but I am glad I gave it a try. I will definitely buy more from this brand. Well made and just beautiful to look at. Georgia from San Clemente
