Playtex Secrets Side Smoothing Underwire Bra
"Side-smoothing panels under the arms help provide a sleek look under clothes."
"Seamless cups provide a natural, rounded shape and no show through."
Really? "Side-smoothing" is code for a line of bras that shape your body like a bullet bra. I've tried several in this line, and it doesn't matter if it's the underwire or wirefree, it takes the flesh at the sides and pushes it to the front so that your breasts look like a pair of bullets. Completely unattractive, darned uncomfortable and looks awful on.
The only good thing I can say about it was that the underwire -- for once -- didn't stab me in the armpits.

This bra is terrible! The cup size runs really small! Then the foam shape of the bra is 'pointy' - I felt like all I needed was to add tassles to complete the look. Terrible fit, terrible look.

only bra I wear
I am a big bust girl and always struggle to find a great bra at a reasonable price. Have been wearing this bra exclusively for over a year now and I don't want to ever wear another. It is so soft! The material feels like silk on your skin. I have even gotten my mother and grandmother converted over to this bra. I have never had a strap slip, so that review confuses me. The THIN padding does not interfere with my size and allows me to wear a thin t-shirt with confidence. Never any lines to show thru your thin knits. I can't rave about this bra enough!

Playtex Secrets Side Smoothing Bra
What a joke its name is! This bra is anything but secret sides! It is made so poorly that the sides of a person' skin are pushed out of the bra, and the whole looks bulging and ugly. I had other types of Playtex, and they had a much better fit. The cups of this bra are also running small, so every time I raise my arms, the bra raises too, and the skin slips out. And there is no smoothing at all, it just pushes the skin to other sides.
Overall, an awful bra. I will never buy it again.
