As far as the Rhonda Shear bandeau, to me it's like trying to wear a headband on my chest. (I might have better luck with a headband...) Depending on how I "adjust", it either pushes my breasts to the sides and flattens me on the front of my chest, or it pushes me all to the center-front and causes my front cleavage to look squashed and crinkled, (like I'm wearing...a headband on my chest.) The pads that come in the bra are huge, so they don't enhance, they flatten, and they feel suffocating. I don't understand why anyone would put such large pads in "XS" sized bandeau's (unless they're fine for tall people). Instead of stretching out the bra, these pads press down on my flesh, and I don't have any better of a silhouette with them than without. Out of curiosity, I tried seeing if these pads fit in my other bras; incl. my Rosa Fais Twin Firm, which is unlined and stretchy. I couldn't even get the pads into my other bras. Rhonda Shear pads are longer and wider than any of my cups and they're too thick to fit into them at all. The Rhonda Shear bandeau style covers the bulges at my underarms, but the bulges are caused more by the pads than the bra. I couldn't wear this without some kind of insert because my nipples show through everything, but using the included pads is like me trying to wear my husbands size 13 shoes on my size 7 feet. Unfortunately, even if I wore two of these bandeaus layered, my nipples show through. It's too bad because I love the fun, sexy cheetah print. Shani A from Phoenix AZ

I like this bra and it is much more comfortable than those with underwires. It has removable pads which is good, but they do not stay in place unless you safety pin or sew them in. The first time I wore this bra, one pad slid over and it made one breast look bigger than the other! It must have happened when I put it on and I didn't notice until later. No problem though, I just took them out. Just be aware that the pads can slide around if you don't pin them in. Other than that, it's a good product that I would recommend as it stays in place pretty well. Like Adrene, I rarely wear bras, so maybe this is the bra for women who rarely wear bras and don't like to wear them unless it's absolutely necessary. Lisa from Denver, CO USA

I rarely wear a bra. This bandeau is very comfortable. It is great to NOT have straps over my shoulders while feeling confident that this garment will not slip down. I am very happy with my purchase. Adrene from West Palm Beach/FL/USA
