Playtex 18 Hour Posture Back Front Close Wirefree Bra
I have other front-hook bras that I LOVE, and can no longer find. I saw these and thought I would give them a try. Runs small, and the plastic pieces on the adjustable straps dig into my skin. The ones I have don't have that slider style adjustable strap, which never stay put IMHO - they have adjustable hooks. Wish these were more like the ones I love, but nope, will be returning them!

Overall, not happy, but it has its positives...
I have terrible back problems and wearing a 38DDD doesn't help. I work from home, at a desk all the time, so I wanted something that would help me sit straighter in my chair since I tend to lean into my computer monitor. This bra does help straighten my shoulders HOWEVER, like most other reviewers I found the following.
1. It's really tight and as a result, getting the hooks to close is like fighting with a small rubber band. I find myself releasing all but the middle hooks to avoid the digging-in.
2. The length of the hook strip and resulting contour makes it very unflattering...NO WAY I would leave the house wearing it, unless I was in a very bulky sweater with layers beneath it. The top two or three hooks actually push forward so you look like you have something stuffed in side your top.
3. The cups do not have any spacing, so like others, you get a lot of cleavage but not much shape.
4. Would be nice if the shoulder straps had more give (gel or longer for more adjustments).
I thought about buy it in a larger size but that won't help the contour issues from the very long hook strip... in fact, it would probably make it worse.

Very disappointed! Support great BUT confining across back and chest.
Straps seem to be too short. If I had paperwork I would return them but didn't keep because I usually love their bras.
