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.
The bra in question I have since purchased a second one. It doesn't poke, jab, or rub me raw. And I don't look like I have a uniboob in it. I am not a big fan of the wider shoulder strap because it sometimes peaks out from under my shirt collar. But better than most. My build is short, muscular, and stocky 5'3" with a I cup. As you can imagine if the cup is big enough the under wires in other bras hit in the wrong places. This bra doesn't have a wire!!!!
Beautiful purple color! Well made and arrived quickly. I am planning to order another one soon.
