My bra size has been 38C for more than 20 years, but even so I confirmed it by following the step-by-step fitting instructions on this site before ordering this Spanx bra. When it arrived I tried it on right away and it fit perfectly and was AMAZINGLY COMFORTABLE – so I cut off the tags and started wearing it daily. However, after the first 4-5 days of wear, I realized that the back band was starting to stretch and loosen up, and the bra was starting to ride up. After about 10 days of wear I found myself constantly tugging and pulling it back down – the band had stretched to the point of being too big and would not stay put.
Because I’d worn my bra I could no longer return it, but I loved the feel of it so much that I ordered another with a smaller band size - 36C. Going down a band size solved the problem, and this one fits me perfectly – no more tugging and pulling. I’m not happy in the least that it cost me $62 to find my right size, but I do love the bra and would recommend it to anyone, with the cautionary advice that the band fabric could possibly stretch to the point of being too big.
HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. However, we feel this bra has a very accurate fit. One point to be made is that a bra should never be worn day-after-day. You should have 3 bras that you rotate between. A bra needs time to bounce back to it's normal shape. It should also be washed after a few wearings as well. But, we are delighted that you found a size that works for you.
