Yes, for full figure bras, they are pretty. However, when I got a size smaller in the cup I thought it would solve the problem of the straps falling down constantly. It did not. It does fit properly, but it is impossible to wear without tying the straps in the back so they don't fall down. Not a fun or easy task. This is a shame because I am stuck with 2 of your bras - one of which lost one of it's spaces to hook into at my first washing. I have found that the only way to determine if the fit is good is if you wear them for several hours. Also, this is the only bra you have in my size that is a minimizer. You have a huge selection of minimizers; however, they all seem to stop at size 44. I think there would be a lot of larger busted women who'd enjoy the benefits of a minimizer, like me. Please let me know if you decide to make a bra that has wider strapes with the minimizer in my size. Wider straps most times help to keep them up.

Valmont Response: I would suggest trying one size larger. Joanne from PA, USA

Pretty bra. Does not have any strength to it at all. I can't believe women have written good reviews. I wear it around the house, would not wear it out. If your a big busted woman it's not for you. Jerri from 19719 I-30

It's difficult to tell how a bra will fit and feel unless you wear it for several hours. I did that, which of course means I can't return it. It is almost impossible (this is the only one you have) to find a minimizer bra in my size. Makes no sense since woman in my size want to be minimized. Even non-minimizer bras have molded padding. Makes no sense! This bra is pretty -- something also unusual. However, the cup size was a bit large. I don't know if that contributed to the straps falling down all day, but that drove me nuts. Could not buy again and it's, as I said, your only minimizer in my size. Joanne from Lititz, PA, USA

I have worn out my first supply of this bra I've been wearing these Valmont 427 bras for several years. Time to order new ones. I have been wearing Valmont 427 for years, and am reordering again.They and are very comfortable. I found them in my early 50's,when even specialty shops couldn't find a fit for me. No muffin top and no fall out. You can wear this bra to work in your garden or to a garden party. If anyone still has garden parties! Truly universal. C J from Ohio

The bra is beautiful, really, really soft. I had to return it for a smaller size, but I made it clear that I want it. Will definitely order more. Nilsa from Palm Bay, Florida/USA

I thought I measured according to your specs, but the band size is too small. Rather than send it back, I'll just buy an extension.

Valmont Response: Valmont is very generous in their cut and, if anything, they usually get the opposite comment that things are too large. You should try a size 48 instead. Linda from Grapevine

This bra offers little support. It is a beautiful bra, but isn't what I was hoping for.

Valmont Response:427 Minimizer Bra does have support and has a great frame that we've been using for years. KD from Minnesota

The lace on the underwire rubs and cause chaffing on my ribcage. The lace puckers because it isn't properly sewn to the white satin seam in the front cup area. It's like there is to much lace overlay. With that being said I still wear it because the shoulder straps don't dig in and the overall fit is pretty good. Brenda from Elkland, Pa

Very beautiful bra as well as very sexy with the heavier lace. I like it because you can wear it with a cami to be demure or wear it with a thin T and show off a bit. The only draw back in my mind were the straps, the adjusters wouldn't stay and by the end of the day I was constantly adjusting the straps. steph from Fort Worth, TX

This bra is comfortable and gives good support when the straps are pulled tight. I like the cup shape as well. Lace is pretty although it is thick enough to show through thin fabrics. Not enough side support for a large size to me. Teresa from West Orange, NJ, USA
