Got this just to try as I wasn't sure it would help but it was reasonably priced and have good reviews. I'm a 38 E and they are heavy! I have always worn underwired wire bras in a balconette style as I was told I needed that for support. Working from home there Is a lot more admin work and leaning my back was suffering. My normal bras although of a high quality and fitted correctly were digging into the nerves on my shoulders and leaving an indent in the muscle. I thought the headaches and back pain were from other things and my friend suggested the bra's I was wearing might be the cause. The second this arrived and I put it on it was magic. My posture changed the weight was evenly placed over the shoulders and it was even more comfortable than not wearing a bra at all! The wider straps are a god send and they all look pretty. So pleased I have ordered 5 more in different styles and colours and they are all brilliant. Was a little confused when the size on the packaging for the others was a weird combo of letters and number but when I tried them it was a perfect fit. I love the front closure on this style as its so easy to put on and take off. If you suffer from shoulder or back pain this is a must try. Not having a wire is amazing and the fit is great under my clothes as well as supporting me. I also suffered from skin irritation under my breasts where the wire would sit, as normal daily sweat and friction would cause red marks. That issue is totally gone and I'm supported properly. Cannot rave about these enough. Thank you Glamorise you are awesome!
I bought my usual size in this bra, and found the underbust band was a litle looser than I would expect. I then bought a size smaller, and found that although the fit was better, the hooks tend to come apart when under pressure of a tight-fitting bra; I've had to sew up the front to make it work. Once that's done, it's fine.
I ordered this bra as I work a very physical job and my back and shoulders need a break. I wore this bra at home first and thought "wow, it does ease the regular back pain" and it seemed to distribute the weight well. The downside was how odd it makes your breasts look, lol, they become extremely coned and seperated and girl trust me it is not a good look even though the bra I got was true to size and fit everywhere well, just weirdly lol . Luckily at work I wear full bib Carhartts that cover my taters. So I wore it to work and after 5 minutes of usual labor (I'm a pipefitter) my back muscles were on fire (not the usual back pain, it had just moved to a different back pain). It was so bad I had to go home and change bras. So. I do not recommend this bra if you are active or have a physical job/lifestyle. If you sit all day I can see how it could be good (if you can get over the weird 1980s cone bra look).
