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.
Excellent fit. Can see and feel the quality. Extremely comfortable to wear. Great "no bounce", for me as a 40G that's very important. Have purchased a 2nd one as I'm so impressed. Hope you enjoy this product as much as I am.
Pros: Very supportive - little to no bounce. Well made, pretty design Cons: - Difficult to do up: 5-hook closure requires excellent shoulder and arm mobility, or do up and twist around. - Fits a wee bit small - perhaps because of the 5-hook closure. I used a 4-hook extender to help me do it up, and eventually as it loosened up a bit, no longer needed the extender. - Uni-boob, with no separation or definition between breasts: uncomfortably wet and sticky after a while for we large-busted.
After reading reviews, I ordered a band size up and my usual cup size - so, I got a 40H.
Pros: I can comfortably wear this for 12 hours. The non-stretchy, tight band is a big part of what makes this bra so supportive. The material is fairly comfortable and compresses my chest a good bit, comfortably. It definitely minimizes bounce.
Cons - because the band isn't stretchy it can be hard to close all 5 hooks. Also the band rolls up in the front for me a bit, but that doesn't bother me. Some people may find the seams under the arms irritating - I don't, except for one time where it inexplicably chafed. Despite the cons, this works really well for me.
I ordered one 2 years ago and have really like it, decided to get a 2nd one now that I workout more often. I still like it but this one came with 5 hooks instead of 4 and it's such a wider band it's kind of annoying. The previous one I ordered only had 4 hooks and I like it a lot better. It's possible it's because they're different sizes, but I wish it were 4 like the other size. This time I ordered a 40H, first order is a 42G
I dont think the sizing on this aligns with what you might see in the stores. I ordered a 40 H and its definetly measured smaller in width than the 38H i bought at lane bryant. I think the cup size is smaller as well because i was popping out the sides of the bra.
