After reading reviews, I ordered a 36D instead of my true size, 36DD. It was too small so I sent it back and got a 36DD, and it fits perfectly. This bra does everything you want it to -- lifts, minimizes a bit, sucks everything in, and provides just enough separation (yet cleavage) so you don't have the smushed look or a uni-boob. I've come to the point in my 35-year-old life where I just can't deal with underwire every day, and I need comfy bras for sitting in a desk chair most days. This one feels snug enough to provide all-day support and to wear under any type of top. I usually buy Bali bras but this one may be the new fav.
I received this bra promptly plus it is well made. I seen other reviews saying it was flimsy but I find it to be comfortable and beautiful color! I ordered a 38DDD because it was available but just to peg sizing, I am normally a 40DD. I was measured recently for bras and they stated that 38DDD is like a 40DD. I don't find it binding or pokey. I am so happy I brought the purple one also and I washed them first in a garment bag. These are comparable to Playtex. Hope my pic helps.
These bras are comfortable and supportive. The straps are padded and do not dig into your shoulders. I can wear all day long and do not feel the need to immediately remove when I get home...it's that comfortable...I love these bras...I own many. They hold up very well through months of washing. The only downfall is how long it takes to get this bra....quickest time frame is 6 weeks, so be prepared to wait.
Seems like these are not as stretchy around the bottom as my other one. Almost too tight on the loosest hook. My other one fits great. But I needed them so I wear them. I really love these bras though. Well made, pretty and comfy. Great support. I no longer need to wear underwires. PLEASE DONT DISCONTINUE THESE! I could really use white ones also. Thanks for asking!
