I have been wearing this bra for years. It holds up well. I love the straps because they don't dig in. I also like the fact that it isn't an underwire so therefore it is more comfortable to me. A great all around bra at a decent price. Plus on HerRoom you can get more colors and sizes than in the stores. Becky from Washington

I LOVE this bra, and have worn it for many years; HOWEVER, the padded area of the 'comfort' straps are not long enough--they don't wrap over your entire shoulder area. If you have alot of neck and shoulder pain this is a real drawback.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. Many manufacturers struggle with this issue. To provide a padded strap means you give up the ability to adjust it much. Therefore, bras with these types of straps are designed for a woman who is average height and has an average torso. Short or long torso women will have problems like you describe.

Thank you for carrying this size! I have a difficult time finding a bra that is comfortable to wear in my size, and this 18-hour is the one. I can just never fine it in my size. Thank you! Linda from West Covina, CA USA

Other than a sports bra... this is one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn. I'll certainly purchase more. Evelyn from Chicgo, IL USA

Very comfortable, great support. Finally, a bra that fits well and offers proper support, for a plus size woman. Great selection of colors. Convenient to order on line. Product arrived in a timely fashion, with vendor notifying me of receipt of order, date of shipping. Laura from Plymouth Mich

I absolutely will not buy any other style bra except Playtex 18hr.....I have tried other brands, styles, etc. to no avail. I keep going back to Playtex. There is no other for me. The support, the great feeling/comfort ---that's for me and the longevity of the garment Roberta from Malden MA 02148 USA

I like the comfort straps because they don't bite into my shoulders like standard straps do. Deborah from Phenix City, AL, USA

I got these for my daughter, she loves them. Finding affordable sources for larger items isn't easy but this experience was. I'm always leery about internet experiences but this was fast, easy and reliable. We'll be ordering again. Thanks! Cyd from Tulsa, OK, USA

Very comfortable. I think I got too big a cup size. It rumples slightly at the tip - not good for smooth outer top. The yoke folds over in front at the bottom - maybe I need to hitch up the straps better. I bought two bras - and the underwire fits better and smoother. I may be too big for non-wire bra (which is what I usually buy). I guess I'm going back to underwires. Very comfortable, but I wear it under looser clothing. The underwire of the same size as this one feels like a true fit. This feels big. I would order a smaller size next time. Sara Brooks from Madison WI USA

I have been wearing this style bra for years. I find it to be extremely comfortable. For me, comfort is the first criteria for a bra. Iamrcc from Chicago, IL USA

I love this bra. I purchased it a couple weeks ago and have been nothing but pleased. It is quite comfortable and uplifting despite not having an under wire. Another major plus is that it doesn't ride up my back and the straps don't fall off my shoulders. Dare I say I think it's the most comfortable bra I've ever worn. Heather from Alberta, Canada

I like the feel of this bra and I do fit in it without spillage. However, it is tight on my rib cage and after about 8 hours I need to adjust it. A larger band size would probably ride up in the back. I like that it comes in black and larger cup sizes.The straps could be a little longer. I would probably buy another one like it. mj from California

I love the 18 hour bra but have discovered the bigger I get around ... my breast size remains the same! The smallest cup size you make in a 48 is about two cup sizes too big! Very frustrating! Have you considered making a 48A or AA? I can't be the only one with this problem!? Please think about it and if you do ... let me know ... I will be the first to buy it!!!

When I wear these bras I find not only they support well but the comfort as well. I no longer have a bra that runs up my back, makes me look as I am not wearing a bra and my arms and shoulders no longer hurt from the straps from holding the weight. elizabeth from attalla, alabama

it's the only bra I will wear. The straps are short enough that I don't have to alter them. The support is great and the fit is perfect. Trudy from Joplin, Mo USA

I loved the way it fits comfortably at the band; with a large back getting the cup and band size to fit is difficult. this bra is great. I've already ordered more. Beverly from Westland/Michigan/USA

uncomfortable. although the band and cups technically fit, the cups spread my breasts out to the sides. the fit was stiff. returned. andrea from ky

I have been wearing this style for over 10 ten years and I am delighted that "G" cup is now avaible. I previously had to purchase 42 DDD, which the band size was a little large to get the right cup size. I recently noticed that Playtex now has "G" cups available and ordered a 40G, the fit is perfect. Great Support for all day, no back pain, and great looks. I also love the padded "comfort straps". My husband commented how great I look with this bra. Thanks for adding the "G" cup to this style Mary from Mass

This bra makes breasts look too "pointy"; not natural looking. The lace trim on straps and on the band is prickly even after washing. ps from Florida
