Playtex 18 Hour Gel Comfort Strap&reg; Wirefree Bra
GEL-COMFORT STRAPS BEAUTIFUL COLORS!
THIS BRA HAS MANY NICE FEATURES TO IT...THE SOARING BLUE COLOR ...JUST BEAUTIFUL, GEL-STRAPS ARE SO COMFORTABLE & THE SILKY MATERIAL ON THE STRAPS & M-FRAME IS GENTLE NEXT TO YOUR SKIN.
CUPS HAVE A BREATHABLE LINER, NICE FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS.
THE LINER & THE SATIN-FRAME IS NOT SEWN DOWN WITH THE CUPS. IF THE SATIN WAS SEWN DOWN IT WOULD BE A LITTLE MORE STURDY. (THIS IS THE REASON FOR ONLY 4-STARS).
BAND IS EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE & HAS THREE HOOKS.

Straps stay on shoulders.
I only buy 18 hr. bras. and this is the best one I have ever purchased. Beautifully designed, straps stay in place and the sides are different than the others that I have worn, and it is truly the most comfortable 18 hour I have ever worn. I am 65 & my shoulders have shrunk, and the straps on this bra do not fall off shoulders.

Bra detailing tears easily
I bought a couple of these bras and the satin detailing tore along the center seam between the cups. It just doesn't stretch like the rest of the fabric that makes up the bra. There is some reinforcement underneath the satin, so you won't have a "wardrobe malfunction," but I cannot recommend this bra if you are truly full-figured.

Let's begin with the negative. I love the idea of a gel strap. However, it isn't wide enough and folds over on itself. This creates a more spaghetti strap feel and digs in. So much for the gel. HOWEVER, being rather large chested, over the years I have gotten an indent on the top of my shoulders, and this might account for some of that happening. But it doesn't happen with my other bras, so just be aware. Other than that I like the bra. I think it might be a good summertime bra that might wick away any moisture. The fabric was soft and I felt the band and cup sizes were true. It is worth a try.
