HerRoom Response: We are sorry to read of your experience. This bra does require a firm fit to the band. But, we understand that women in your age range do not like the feel of a band size requiring a firm fit.

HerRoom Response: The back design allows for fewer hooks. This should be a supportive bra. We are sorry you didn't find it as such.
Susan from Rhode Island
HerRoom Response: You state that you are petite. Your breasts are also probably quite close together. This could be the issue since this bra does have a wider center panel. If you have touching breasts, you don't have room for much center panel between your breasts.
