All I can say is... Wow. Being a larger-chested woman, I never thought that I'd be able to find a nice, soft-cup bra that would provide me with the support I need. While it may not be the sexiest undergarment I've ever worn, this bra meets all of my support requirements in addition to being super comfy.
This is the first front-clasping bra I have ever worn. Initially, it was a little awkward putting it on, but now that I'm used to it, I really love the ease of the front-clasping. The flexible panel in the back is really nice--not only does it move with me throughout the day, but it provides a really smooth look underneath clothing. With this bra, I have none of those yucky bulges I get with other bras, which is pretty great.
There are some minor complaints, however. The seam on the bra's cups aren't all that obvious, but I do wish they would offer a seamless option in this style. Also, for short people like me, this bra can be a little bit overwhelming. It's one seriously big bra, so be prepared for that. I also wish that the little plastic hoops in the back were located on another part of the bra's strap, rather than on the top part of the strap. Sometimes the hoops dig into my shoulders a little, but when I adjusted the straps a little, the problem got much better.
Ok, so this isn't the most stylish or sexy bra out there. If you wear a lot of deep v-necks, you may not get a lot of use out of this style. However, if you're like me and mostly stick to scoop necks and mid-range v-necks, you should be ok. The price is awesome, the comfort is great, and the support is really unbeatable. The shaping is not bad, either. After reading some of these reviews, I was afraid that my breasts would look like a pair of torpedoes or something, but that is not the case. It is a little pointier than I'm used to (I tended to gravitate toward more rounding bras) but nothing out of the ordinary or weird-looking.
