To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Never thought I would switch from my Bali underwire bra style that I wore for over 10 yrs. I had ordered my usual one but the fit was not the same.. Saw an ad on instagram for this type of bra (different brand). As I knew the Bali brand, thought I would try. They are so comfortable and provide lift and support. I especially like the side and back smoothing these bras provide. My new favourite!!
Pros: -Very comfortable Wirefree Lightly Padded Bra - did not change my size significantly -Stay comfortable all day, compared to the Pull on type for a Full Chested person. Even more comfortable than the non padded version #3484 -Good Support for a comfortable Bra style -Excellent coverage with a smooth appearance and improves shape
Cons: - Varies somewhat in size mainly in the width ordering the same size/color but not as much as the non padded version - Material is not the best and may Pill, Keep away from velcro etc. or the material may pull. I found the same for online & in store purchases -Best to check both store bought & ordered ones carefully to make sure the material is in tact Still a good buy for a comfortable item in this style #3488. Amazon offers free returns so not as risky as buying online elsewhere. Have been stuck with Bras from other online sources as not worth returning. On the positive side maybe it will inspire me to lose more weight to fit into them LOL.
NOTE: I ordered 1 size up from the recommended size per the Hanes chart. According to the chart I should only take a Medium. I always take a large as I find the cup size too small and the width too tight on the recommend size. Would recommend 1 size up for comfort if you are a C Cup or larger. I measure about 36" but am full. Large is perfect
My mom is 88 years old, has dementia. She doesn't really know what fits her anymore. Poor thing was putting on old bras that just didn't fit; the body changes. So, I basically dumped all her old bras after finding this one. It fits her nicely, comfortably and looks great on. The wider straps are much more comfortable for her. It's also easy for her to manage putting it on. I bought her the beige color with polka dots, and she loves how pretty it is, plus it works with everything. I ordered a few of these for her, am so happy with this purchase!
I wanted to like this badly because the material was soft and stretchy but unfortunately it may not be for big girls. For reference I am a 5'9" size 16 38D to DD - so definitely on the cusp of XL but ordered L based on reviews.
Although it looked small in the pkg, the band did stretch and was comfortable around my ribcage, 3 hooks which is nicer on a wide band. The band underneath just promptly rolled up in a roll underneath the boobs and would just be annoying. Didn't offer any side or underarm support (I know, I know...no underwire, what did I expect) but I was sucked in by the picture that this might be a comfy sport-bra style with a nicer look.
Going back and no reason to order a different size in my case. I could see A&B ladies enjoying this..as well as slimmer folks whose tummies don't push the band up
I had high hopes for this, but: I was skeptical of the sizing, and ordered L rather than M for 38C. (I'm a size 20 at Walmart and a size 14 at Nordstrom's, so I figure that sizing charts can't be trusted.) It seemed to fit and felt as if it provided a reasonable amount of support, but: 1) As soon as I moved, the elastic rolled up to form a string-cheese sized lump around my torso. I have enough trouble with lumps (possibly due to consumption of too much string cheese) without my clothes creating extra ones, thank you very much. 2) The fabric between the breasts is held about half an inch away from the body. I didn't quite get the "dreaded uniboob" as another reviewer so aptly dubbed it, but it was hardly a promising foundation for clothing.
