Playtex 18 Hour Comfort Shaping Wirefree Bra
I like the fabric of the bra and its fit. However the wide part of the straps is not on the top of the shoulders where you would expect it to be, rather they are on the front of the chest which does not fulfill the purpose for which it was intended. The wide part is supposed to be on the top of the shoulders to prevent the strap from digging in. Also, the strip at the bottom of the cup tends to roll or curl during wear. Over time it can cut into the skin or cause a sore spot to form where it rubs the skin. Since I sew, I took the bras and stitched down the support strip at the bottom. I have since received new bras in a smaller size and before wearing, I also stitched down the support strip. That eliminates the rubbing/chafing and soreness that the wrinkled fabric causes. If you continue to offer these bras, I would suggest that the manufacturer correct these two flaws. Otherwise I like the bras.

When I first wore this bra, it was all right but as the day wore on it felt tight and uncomfortable. I've even tried putting it on the loosest hooks, but it still feels tight. I think maybe because it doesn't have much stretch to it around the band. The straps also are at an odd angle and tend to pull the skin on my shoulders and pinch, and the cups are too small so that I spill out of the sides. Unfortunately, I think I tried too long to make them work -- 2 months -- and it's probably too late to return them. Maybe it's a good bra for some women, but not for me.

Support with comfort!
This bra offers a great fit, great support and great shaping. Would like this bra to have a little more lining, as it doesn't offer as much discretion. Love that it is wire free!

Love the look and coverage of this bra! Feels wonderful on, but wish I could get it in a 34D. I wish you would make more 18 Hr. bras in 34D. Would you consider?
