Valmont Bra Supreme Underwire Convertible Bra
It's huge and difficult to put on
I am very disappointed with this bra. :( I ordered a 48 C, the size I buy when I buy Playtex bras, but this bra is simply huge on me. I bought it to wear with a dress in Las Vegas for my birthday this week, but it's so big I can't possibly wear it without the straps (and there's not enough time to return it for a better product). It just slides right down my torso. So I tried putting on the clear straps to see how it would work with my dress, and in so doing found out how hard it is to put this bra on! The hooks are on the sides of your back, and it's impossible to just reach back and hook the bra like you normally do. So as you're twisting around to try to get the thing hooked, the straps themselves come unhooked. It's a huge, awkward pain. With a little bit of sewing and fashion tape, I am going to be able to make this bra work for my birthday dress, but I'm not happy about it. What I wanted was a strapless bra. Now I have to wear the straps AND do some sewing and taping to make it work. Not a recommended bra. If you do order, order at least a band/cup size down.

Rough underwire cups
I bought this bra to wear under spaghetti strap tops. I had a hard time getting the hooks to stay in place on one end while I hooked the other, it is very ridiculously made, also the underwire at chest cuts into skin, not soft, very uncomfortable bra.
If you are putting this thing on alone you need to stitch one side while you do other side of the extra strap in back or you cannot do it, the hooks come apart on one side while you are hooking the other side, sent it back!

I purchased these bras because they were the only ones in my size that were strapless... BIG MISTAKE!!! When I put the bra on, my husband commented that it looked like I had the front bumper off a 1956 Cadillac under my shirt... Needless to say, I sent them back...
Do not waste your time or money on these bras...

Finally found a bra that actully holds me up!
Yes, it does hold me up, but the side strays are uncomfortable. As it promises, it is convertible, but you need tools to change the straps girls! The hooks loops are too tight, I would rather have alittle more room to change the straps than to flight with it!
It fits good except for the cup size. I went down a cup size and still have plenty of room. ORDER SMALLER CUP SIZE!!! I also like the silcone stripping that is all around this bra, even on the cups to hold the girls in place, nice. Ends of wire wrapings fraying already. Over all, a great bra!
