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.
While the straps were pretty hard to get off, they are removable. The busiter fits true-to-size (36C me fit their 36C reccommendations), but as others have pointed out, if you are not at least moderately in-shape, you might have a tummy pudge lump problem. I'm in okay shape though, and it wasn't a problem. The lace fabric itself is comfortable and I did not experience any underwire problems that others reported--I expect that they just ordered too small. If you are wearing your proper bra size, you should have no problems. VERY supportive without being cleavage-intensive. The middle bit does sit a littler higher than I expected though, so double check what you're wearing it under.
I order my size cup but when I got this it is much smaller than expected. I'm think'n bout sending back but since I need to lose weight, we'll see if that helps. If not.......I'll have to chalk it up as a loss.
