This was just the wrong fit for me. A little on the small side. What a beautiful bra though and nice colors!! Beverly from West Fargo, ND, USA

The cup size was way too big for being a B. I would have ordered an A cup if it were available. The front closure seemed flimsy, not secure. Other than that, it's a nice looking bra. Julie from Kern County, CA

It was too small around so I ordered a 44 C and the cup was too big, so I'll order a 44 B and see how that is. My friend tried on the 42 C and it didn't fit her normally either - too small around. It's a lovely bra if I can only get one to fit.

HerRoom Response: When you go up a band size, you need to go down a cup size to maintain the same cup volume. Doris from West Chester, PA

I had such high hopes for this bra but was ultimately bitterly disappointed and embarrassed. The bra does not provide much support and rode high on my back, but what happened on my third day of wearing it at work really sealed my opinion. I was sitting in a meeting with mostly men and suddenly felt the center front clasp give way and the bra cups slip off my breasts ending up under my armpits. I was wearing a rather shear blouse but fortunately had a suede jacket on which I quickly pulled close to avoid any further embarrasment. I found, upon checking later that morning, that the stitching that held the front clasp in place had come apart on the right side which meant I had no way of closing the bra. I had to go the rest of the day holding my jacket closed across my chest with the discomfort of the underwire cups lodged in my armpits. Needless to say I won't be recommending this particular bra to anyone. Lesley from Jacksonville, FL

Had the same problem with this as many others, the 'Wonder Woman' syndrome. Turns my breasts into cone shaped bullets when I was looking for cleavage. On the plus side it's actually very secure feeling and pretty comfortable, which is why I'm keeping it. I might have ordered a DDD but doesn't come in that size. Helen from California

Very pretty. I love lacy things, but this one was not comfortable at all. I could possibly wear for an evening, but not all day. It seemed to run very small. The back cut and because it is a front closure, there is no adjustment. The cup size seemed small also, cutting into the tops of my breasts, although that part wasn't uncomfortable, it wasn't particularly attractive under the sweater I was wearing. I would have returned if I hadn't already worn it all day. Karen from Stockton, CA

It's a beautiful bra and the fit is just right. I've found it to be a bit itchy, but I am very sensitive to some fabrics anyway. It is very hard to find a good quality bra with some style to it, but this bra is very stylish and has just the fit and quality I am looking for. Patty from Salem, OR/USA

I love how pretty this bra is and that is a front close. The sizing is a little off for my shape though. I guess I should have gone with a cup lower in size for this style. I typically don't like underwire but this hasn't really bothered me. Carla from South St Paul, MN, USA

I love it - very sexy, has more lace that other bras. This bra separates my breasts so I don't look so huge.

Now the downside - I was at a business lunch with several colleagues. I was leaning over the buffer, holding my plate in 1 hand and a spoon in the other when the hook broke. All of my colleagues on the other side of the buffet table got a really good look at my boobs until I could put down my plate and spoon. The positive side is that they invite me to lots of lunches.

I ordered five of these bras and wrote a review when they arrived. However, I cannot wear them! No matter what I put them under, I look like Wonder Woman!! Too bad, since they are very pretty and priced well. Corinne from Mexico

I have rotator cuff problems so I must wear a front hook bra. I found this bra a good choice and so pretty. Unfortunately it has two problems. One problems is that the underwire seems to poke out on the sides and it is not comfortable. The other problem is that it is not true to size. Although I measure 46B, I really needed a 48B in this bra and so I reordered them once again. I find Her Room is a great place to find larger sized items that are feminine and pretty - not always a possibility at other stores. Marge from Piscataway NJ

Form, Function and Fantastic! This is one beautifully comfortable bra. With just the right amount of support, it's almost too pretty to cover up! Brenda from Rutland, Vermont

I am actually going to rate TWO items...this is important! I am 62 years old and have spent a good deal of my time looking for sexy underwear! Having had 2 C-sections and 2 Kidney surgeries, my stomach has a lot of very sensitive areas. Also with a bit of a "ponch" in front...bikini pants not only hurt but look silly. Every pretty bra I would find only had matching bikini pants. Very frustrating. This bra, although had to be returned twice for getting an OK fit has a semi-brief beautiful pantie that makes a lovey set. I did not read any of the other comments BEFORE purchasing. The pants fit great but sized small too. The lace is a bit itchy in hot weather but they are new and I expect the lace to soften up with a few washings. The bra sort of points me out to the sides but I don't care! I am short, VERY low waisted wear appx. 44D but am happy to get anything that looks pretty and is semi comfortable! Very pretty colors too. Bonnie from Novato, Calif.

Is cut considerable smaller than the size would indicate. Feels much more like a 32C! (I will probable return this one, which is disappointing, because it is so pretty.) Mary from MN

I returned these, I love a sexy front close, but this one had too many issues...it seemed much smaller than most 34Bs and pressed deeply into my back. The cups are strange and give a "bullet bra" appearance; something to do with the odd top strap attachment. Billie from USA

the bra was beautiful, but the fit was very small. It fit more like a large 34 c, than a 34 DD. allison from nashville, tn, usa

Very nice, I like it and ordered a few colors, will probably order more. The underwire moves up and out though, so it started to poke me. I will have to figure out how to make it not do that. Joanne from Lansing MI

I had difficulty finding a front closure bra in stores that would fit and not look like something my grandmother would wear. Then we decided to check online and I found this site that has a good selection with many sizes. The product is great, and so is the service. They got the items to me faster than I expected and the customer service people were very nice. I will definitely be doing all my purchasing here. Sandra from Fortuna/CA/USA

I normally wear a 36 or 38DD. This bra was equivalent to a 34D. The back sizing very small and the cup sizing was terribly small. I really believe the bra I received was mismarked. Sandra from Scotch Plains, NJ USA

This is the only place on the WEB that I can obtain front closure bras in my size that are frilly and lacy. Retail stores have front closure bras that are soooo old lady like with no sexy touches. THANK YOU!!! Diana from San Antonio, TX USA

I love the look and fit of this bra but the backing around the underwire allows the wire to poke out and move up my chest. It is frustrating!!! Randy from Rome/NY/USA

A great front closure bra. I usually hate front closure bras but because of my rheumatoid arthritis, I often have to wear one. I love this bra. It is very comfortable, easy to fasten and supports very well. I'm so glad I tried it. I have ordered several more. betsy from houston,tx

I liked the COLOR...but the under wires kept poking out...seemed to defy any attempt to secure the ends. This is with hand washing the bra. Definitely a big disappointment. Jeanne from Gladstone, MI, USA

The bra itself is beautiful and comfortable, but it does not shape me very well. My breasts looked cone like and bow out on the sides. Not enough support there. I'm frequently fitted properly for a bra because of weight loss, so that's not it. Tiffany from Denton, texas, USA
