Just love this bra. I have been wearing another brand for at least 10 years, and, no matter what style I buy, they have been uncomfortable. This bra is very comfortable, the back hides my bulges, and, I don't feel like I'm wearing a bra. I have been looking for a front closure bra forever. The 4 star rating is due to the hook & eye closure. It is not as easy to use as others. Marta from CT

4.5 stars for comfort and appearance under clothes. BUT - In the short time I have had the bra, one of its underwire has popped through and stabbed me in the underarm, rendering it unwearable. This is a lot of money to spend on a throw-away bra. Stephanie from United States

Good fit, comfortable, stays put, NO strap slipping (first time ever). Front closure makes putting in on painless. I am very pleased! Sue from Whittier, CA

I like the back, but the underwire is uncomfortable until you get used to it. Also, the cups do not cover well enough. I have large breast so I do not need the molded cups. Jan from Estill, SC

Love this bra! The only bra I've ever owned that shows no back bulge. Very comfortable with no show through when wearing t-shirts or sweaters. Minimizes too which I appreciate. Great all around bra! Colleen from Dubuque, IA

I like the back, it does a moderately good job of smoothing. I find the cup to be much too 'generous' at the top under the attachment to the straps, even thought it is a size smaller than I normally wear. Support is very good. The front closure is very stiff and tends to cut into me at the cup underwire on one side. Overall it takes some getting used to and is rather hot to wear. D from Lexington, KY

I like this bra. I have back bulges with other bras but this one is smooth across the back. Even though it is not tight across the back my breast are sitting higher than in any other bra I own. I also have a problem with bulging under the armpits towards the front that keep me from wearing thinner material shirts but with this bra I can wear any shirt. Sarah from Savannah, GA

I thought the SPANX Bra-vo! would make me look too chesty because of the formed cups, but it doesn't. The bra gives a lot of support without feeling bound, and the shaping is natural. The deep sides and back are flexible and create a smooth look. Great bra. Caroline from Fairfax, VA

Bra is so comfortable and works wonders on figure! One problem after wearing it several times top hook broke the wire on right cup came through stitching. The straps at times turns the hook between strap and bra kinking. It looks bad. These are all things that I repaired myself but for the money you pay for them this should not happen. karen from Boston Ma USA

Runs big and not as well made as I would have liked. Won't buy again. Big lady from CA

Finally, a bra back that helps to hide, rather than accentuate, my overweight bulges. This is better than any back smoothing bra I've encountered yet. It's not tight, so doesn't cut in anywhere on my back. The front leaves a little to be desired, at least for me and my rolls. For me, the cups are cut too high under the arms to be worn with any of the newer tops that are cut so low under the arms, or with sleeveless tops. And the wires poke me under my arms when I'm seated. But that's largely because of my own build I think. When all is said and done, for a smoother appearance, I will endure a little discomfort! Just wish I didn't have to pay so much for a name. NAnnie from Hollidaysburg/PA/USA

This bra fits wonderfully well. I have had a hard time finding a front closing bra. I very much like the mesh back and the way the bra helps to minimize underarm buldging. donna

I'm still out on this bra. Like a lot about it: Coverage is good though a bit stiff/artificial shaping but with good uplift and separation. Front clasp and strap adjustments are functional (though, in my large size, I still feel like I am putting on a life jacket). Love the back: smooth shaping and very comfortable. Elastic straps are well spaced, not too wide and have concealed length adjustments. Only drawback is for me is that this bra feels help up by the straps alone and puts pressure on my shoulders. What I really want is this bra with all the modesty coverage but without the "foam core" shaping and made in a minimizer style. Then I'd be really happy! Tommy from Portland , Oregon, USA

Incredibly comfortable first of all, definitely smooths the back and looks great under knits. Good support. I just threw away about five very nice, well made bras because all I want to wear now are my Spanx bras, (also the side-slimming model.) Curls from Washington, DC
