Playtex 18 Hour Easier On Front Close Wirefree Bra with Flex Back
I purchased these bras before and they were wonderful, but now are beginning to show their age. This time, when I measured and ordered according to the size chart, the band size was tighter by one size than I usually get. (I should have ordered according to my comfort band size). I wish the straps were longer, too, so that the bra back rested in the normal position instead of at the neckline. The straps have been let out all the way but I still could splice another inch (or two) of elastic in each strap. All in all, it's a great buy!

Comfortable back and sides
All-in-all this is the best front close bra I have had in years. I do wish the closure part was a little shorter as it tends to try to roll on the bottom and stands away from my body at the top because of the length. The stretch bands criss-crossed on the back are very comfortable and adjust perfectly as needed. Will be back for another one!

When finally got my right size it was perfect.
Size was my fault not their's. Found perfect Playtex 40D and fits
perfectly and love it. Have bought several since the first time - I
think 8 or 10 in just the past few weeks.

Great shoulder straps, comfort, support But...
I have worn these bras for a few years now. They are my go to, everything bra. If clothes don't work with the bra, I don't choose the clothes. The bras are comfortable, very supportive, higher on the sides, to hold in fullness. They are true to size chart measurements at the 38D-44DD range. Those are the sizes I can evaluate. I have degenerative joint disease in my shoulders so the easy on front hooks, and the stay up shoulder straps really contribute to my comfort. They last very well also, with machine washing and drying. There are two issues that could be improved however. The cup shape could be modernized to a more attractive more rounded shape. The current shape is a bit flat angled and pointy in a way that is less appealing under soft knits that are so common today. The other thing is that, the bottom eye, for the bottom front hook has rusted out on several of these bras. This should be improved to a rust free metal eye. The hooks have been fine, just the eye rusts out. I replace the eyes myself, as I am quite handy with sewing tasks. however, for most, i think this would cause the bra to be thrown away to an early and unnecessary death in the landfill. This is a manufacturing choice that could easily be remedied at the start by choosing a stainless steel eye, at least for the bottom eye.
