Bali One Smooth U Front Close Underwire Bra
Best bra ever!
I am a 40-42 D and I am the hardest person to fit ever. I go to many stores and try on every bra style they have and nothing works. So I was thrilled to not only find a bra that fit but in front closure. I haven't had a front closure bra in ten years and it is so great to have one again. I normally hate how many bras in my size have a very tall front fabric between the cups. Two inches of fabric at least on most "full coverage" bras just come up way too far on me. The front closure solves that problem and sits flat where it should.
I have been experiencing what some other reviewers here said where the clasp twists sideways while wearing, but it isn't noticeable unless you see it, you can't really feel it, doesn't ruin the bra at all. But it would be nice for Bali to use a slightly shorter clip that stays straight.
Now some people have said they hate the foam but I am one of those who wont buy a bra without it so I love it. I could understand the request that they make one with foam and one without but I personally like the support it gives and modesty. I got black and white in the store and I am going to order some in beige here on the website.
Bottom line: If you are like me and wear full coverage sizes but dont want a full coverage cut but something cut more like a regular skinny girl bra this is a big winner.

I would definitely recommend this bra. It is supportive and comfortable. I should have ordered the 36 instead of the 34 though. This bra runs small around the rib cage. I like the slight padding. does not show through even under a white shirt! I ordered beige.

I've never found an underwire bra I could wear comfortably. And with my arthritis I needed a front closure, plus a racerback to keep my straps up - a combination that just wasn't available. I crossed my fingers when I ordered this bra. But I needn't have - it is wonderful! I've ordered more and gotten rid of any other style I had. I love this bra!

I really like this bra. I was disappointed when you stopped making a front opening bra as I find them so much easier to put on and take off, so I was delighted when this one appeared. I'm not sure that I am 100% in favor of the foam cups, but they are very comfortable. The racerback straps sometimes show unless one is wearing a top with a fairly close-fitting neckline. However, these are quite minor complaints, and overall I find this bra very comfortable and unobtrusive to wear. Although lace cups can be very pretty so often the pattern shows through thin or close fitting tops.
