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.
Love these bra's they fit and they do a great job. Straps are wide and do not cause pain like smaller ones. Have been buying now for many years and have never been disappointed.
Big Girl Strap revamp needed. I love the natural curve the bra gives. Other bras are really to keep the breast up and perky, going against nature and causing strap soreness trying to hold the building up. I love this bra the straps are comfortable but keep sliding off my shoulders. I find that if the back straps were attached closer to hook and eye closure or if it were a leotard back it would fit more comfortably and would not slide off.
Please make some big girl bras that make sense for big girls.
