This band of this bra feels a little small, and I don't like the double sets of hooks on the sides, just a personal preference. I tried it because I am wearing strapless bras daily due to shoulder pain. I find I need to adjust the fit by tugging up on it several time during the day. I don't intend to return it. Also, HerRoom shipping was great. I was very satisfied with the quick delivery.

Valmont Response: If you are wearing a strapless bra all day and you have to tug it up several times during the day then this would be good for a strapless bra for you. It will stay in place. Anonymous

Well the bra itself is a good quality but as for the backless panel it is not clear it has a frosted look. I ordered this for my wedding dress and I can't wear it because of the frost panel but the shoulder straps are completely clear see through. I would not recommend if you need a complete see through.

Hate it bought it for the see through back which when placed on much bigger than regular band, more like a 38. sherry

I really like this bra. The back is so unique and just what I wanted for dresses or tops with back cutouts. I love that you can wear it with the clear back insert or the matching fabric insert. I also appreciate that it comes with an extra pair of clear straps. I just wish I could wear the clear straps with the clear back - but that one thing doesn't stop me from liking this bra.

I like this bra. Only strapless I ever had that doesn't slip down. Joyce from Virginia

This bra was so uncomfortable...the rubbery strips that run along the inside of the bra just rubbed and burned my skin all day. I had marks for 2 days.

Valmont Response: We are sorry to hear that this bra did not work for you. Having an issue like this is highly unusual, we sell many bras that have the rubber strip inside. AC from Maryland

I ordered the size, but it ran big so we didn't get the snug fit that we needed for a strapless bra. Also the clear backing wasn't translucent enough. It was too white. The translucent straps were okay, but you could only use those with the black backing. It wasn't what I expected. Now we're stuck with a bra that my daughter had no choice but to wear (with prom dress) because we didn't have time to send back. Should have gotten a smaller size. Charnita from Baltimore, MD USA

The fit is great; one thing I would do to change the bra is elongate the clear portion. I purchased the black bra which can be worn strapless, comes with an interchangeable clear back and straps. I need the entire back to be clear. As it is now, there is a portion (right behind the rib cage) that is the color of the bra (not clear); This portion shows; this is the only drawback I have faced with this bra. Other than that, I am happy with the bra, I just cannot wear it with the dress I purchased it for because the colored portion (which happens to be minimal) still appears. I just wish the whole entire back was clear. I really like the fact the bra fastens just behind above the rib cage as opposed to mid back, great idea. Cheryl from Queens NY

I was disappointed in this bra. I've had another version and no complaints about it but with this one I only wore it for a couple of hours and was nervous the entire time. The wiring seems to be made of plastic which made it flimsy in terms of cup support and the cups kept falling down. I'm very disappointed in this bra and will not buy another one again.

The fasteners on this bra do not want to stay fastened. Without my husband to help I could not get this bra on. Unfortunately, I had to have it for the kind of dress I was wearing.

Valmont Response: When wearing the correct size, this bra should not be that much trouble to get on. I would suggest that you try a larger size. Gloria from knoxville, tn

The bra fit very nicely & was comfortable. However, in the descrlption it doesn't state that you cant wear the clear back with straps. It can only be worn strapless which is not very supportive. My clear shoulder straps also broke the very first time I wore them. Once again, the bra is a great fit & supports nicely with the basic straps. Vee P. from Miami, FL

38DD runs small so its a bit tighter than I am use to. Great versatility with being able to change to the clear mid back strap for backless outfits with halter tops. Lisa from Moorhead/MN/USA

The sheer panel was not that sheer, more like a shower curtain. The size was definitely larger than 36C because it was sliding off me and the cups were very large.

Valmont Response: The sheer part to the garment is shown accurately, and it also fits true to size. Anna from Medford NY

This should have come with an instruction manual! The first time I hooked the back strap to the bra, one of the clasps became undone. It was not sewn in properly. The cups do not lay properly for a smooth appearance. Unfortunately I was out of the country for 3 weeks and could not return it. Also I did not realize that if you wanted to use the clear back strap, you had to remove the shoulder straps. That is not what I wanted. Theresa from New York

nice bra with good ideas and attributes, but it just didn't fit right...and I couldn't get it hooked around me. Ran small through rib cage. Very uncomfortable. Needed to order larger size. Cups did not fit my physique either...but it was a nice bra and made well. lynn from Muskegon, MI

I love this bra. I wish it was easier to put on and that the clasps were better at staying together but other than that I really do like this bra!! Eli from Owings Mills, MD

Definitely worth what I paid for it! The only thing keeping it from 4+ stars is that it's a little lacking in support when used as a strapless, but I'm used to that with strapless bras anyhow - and the only time I'll *need* to use the strapless function will be at my wedding later this month. Honestly, my dress will pick up where this bra leaves off. The side hooks are a bit tricky, but worth it to have the backless look. Sizing was true to fit (for the record, I'm 5'1", 265). I would recommend! Sarah from Bellingham, WA, USA

Awesome bra! Worked perfectly with the dress and was able to have it lay much lower on the back than shown. Perfect for backless outfits! Very comfortable too. Patricia from Manhattan, IL

I'm sure the fault here is mine in that the size I ordered was all wrong. The versatility of this bra would make it a useful part of your wardrobe, IF you pay extra attention to ordering the correct size. It will have to be returned. Eileen from Tennessee

I did not realize that you cannot use the straps with the clear plastic part! Thus, was not useful to me. Caroline

Good bra. Was looking for a strapless clear back for a dress that has a lace-up back. Only wish they had a 32 band size..the 34 wasn't as tight as a strapless (for a D cup) needs to be. Other than that, am happy with purchase. S from NJ

I have not worn this bra yet, but it is an engineering feat and fits beautifully. I'm sure that it is going to be very comfortable and will wear beautifully. I am so glad that I found Herroom shopping site. Jean from Naples. Fl

Absolutely, this model needs diagrams on the web site to show the variety of ways it can be worn, along with the proper placement (and/or attachment) of the straps. The double-hooked back band is so ingenious because it allows for so many variables in the fit. We need to see this sort of band in regular bras made by this manufacturer/designer. The band, too, should be diagrammed so that the purchaser knows how to undo it and to fasten it properly, especially showing how it is properly used with the variety of strap configurations. THIS IS A VERY HIGH-QUALITY bra. I wish that Herroom would send along a set of diagrams and instructions for wearing this fabulous bra, in large print for all of us wearers of eye glasses because when trying on lingerie, it is best to take them off so that they do not damage the merchandise.
