I feel it important to remind people that this bra is described as a sleep, lounge, and everyday bra- not a sport bra. I had been buying the Anita Active Front Close Sports Bra. I have arthritis, and was wearing it as an everyday bra. (I am in no condition for sports.) But, it is spendy. Some reviewers mentioned they were using this Valmont bra as a sport bra. So I thought perhaps it had pretty good support for everyday wear despite its descrlption as a sleep or lounge bra. Perhaps, for some, it is suitable for everyday wear, however, I did not find it to be so. Granted, I am heavy in the chest, and have grown accustomed to the firm support of the Anita Bra. But, I do give the Valmont 4 stars, because as a sleep and lounge bra, it is very comfortable. I had not thought of using a sleep bra, but have found that it does help lighten the aches I experience in my chest and shoulders at night. I like the light support it gives me as I go about my mornings. But when my "real day" begins, it's time for my Anita. So, in a nutshell, I would not really expect too much out of this bra for everyday "all day" wear. But as a sleep and lounge bra, it holds up to its comfort claims.
