Using the site was very easy for this grandma. The garment fit very well. I will use it again. The top is a little high for today's open tops, though. Maryann from Ashtabula/Ohio

I am very pleased with my purchases. I shopped many stores trying to buy bras in my size but no luck. I found you by mistake but am sure glad I did. I have 3 daughters & am happy to share you with them. Thanks for being there. Joani from Shoreview MN Ramsey

I have redesigned the front and produced a lower front bra. I do like the front closure but the bra is way to high in the front. Because I work outside and lift and carry, I feel it gives me good support. Because of arthritis, I need a front closure and wish there were more that were more flattering. MH from Snohomish, WA, USA

The bra itself is very comfortable and doesn't make my breast stick out oddly like some of the other bras seem to do but......I am overweight and my breast tend to want to head south and my tummy tends to meet them in the middle regardless of what bra I wear. This bra seems to cause irritation right where the hooks meet and the lace (although pretty) rubs against my stomach causing an irritation. Not bad but enough that by the end of the day you're counting down til time to take it off. Other than that, I like it. Debbie from Roseville, IL

I have bought a half dozen of these before and loved them. I have a shoulder problem that prevents me from reaching behind to fasten a bra and they are great. Sandy from Pebble Beach CA USA

I've worn Playtex before, and perhaps they should offer this in a larger cup size (I sit on the border of DDD and F) to ensure a better fit. While I found the back, straps, and band comfortable, the top 2-3 hooks caused the very top edge of the bra closure to poke out against my shirts and scrub tops. This also gives you the "uniboob" look, but really draws the eye is that corner of the bra closure sticking out against clothing.

HerRoom Response: As you state, you are probably larger than a DDD cup size. This bra does not come larger. Beth from Irving, TX, USA

I love this 18 hour bra. Not only does it fit and fully support me better than any other bra I've tried, it's more comfortable than any other bra I've tried. LOVE the front hooks and back posture bands. Ended up ordering a cup size larger than any other I've bought recently, but glad I did. Thank you, Her Room, for carrying a wide range of sizes.

fit is just right. I enjoy the front closure; the straps don't slip. a little stiff, but I washed it and used softener. that helped. Rosemary from PA

Great bra for work. Very supporting. Easy to put on and comfortable. I love the flexible back. Helps alot for all the bending, reaching, lifting and stuff I do. Love your site and the great sales! Dee from Florida

The bra is not quite as soft in front where it closes. I think it would be a little better if the hook were closer to the bottom than it is perhaps. it just does not feel the same as the old 18 hour bras, BUT it is still the best bra I have ever found. Kathie from New Bern, NC US

I have been wearing the back hook version of this bra and decided to give the "front hook" 18 Hour Comfort Strap a try and I love it! Good support for my heavy breasts, excellent back support, and great comfort. Also it is very easy on put on with the front hooks. The wide padded straps are very comfortable and help give the bra great support. With the hooks in the front, my cloths fit much smoother in the back and look great! This in now my favorite everyday bra, I hope playtex adds a sytle with smooth seamless cups for T-shirts and other figure hugging tops. Mary from Mass

I have trouble reaching behind to fasten my bra. My husband has been helping me but difficult when I go to the pool. I bought one and like it so much I ordered 2 more. It doesn't give quite as much lift but I can fasten it. Carolyn from Asheville, NC

This bra is one I had purchased in a dept. store but never find when I went back to the stores to buy new ones. I was delighted to find it on your website and very satisfied with the promptness in which I received the merchandise. Thank you mary from maple park, il, usa

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. Rose from Indianapolis, IN

I like the construction of the garment..the material was somewhat scratchy..I washed the garment before wearing it and it was still scratchy. Wasn't pleased.. Edith from Savannah, Georgia, USA
