Valmont Embroidered Lace Front Hook Underwire Bra
It was very pretty and looked pretty good, but the front hook jabbed into me. The second time I wore it I put a bandaid on where it rubbed. I actually washed it and had it out to send back, when my puppy found it and chewed it up!

Not for big busted women
If you are young, firm or 'store bought' then this bra is for you!
It is just as beautiful as in the picture #especially the pink#.

I contend that your age that they ask for is not nearly as important as the size you bought which they don't. In this case, I bought a 48C.
I really want to like this bra. It meets the 2 criteria I look for:
a) it plunges (note to bra designers...big girls like to wear v-necks too)
b) The cups are widespread...my breasts are too and it's hard to find a bra where the girls don't get uncomfortably pushed together.
a) the front clasp area is exceedingly annoying...the sewn edges are stiff and poke your skin.
b) the sides of the cups are very high. I have to do a *lot* of fiddling so they don't show through even the highest cut sleeveless armholes.
c) This is just kind of a thought, but since I got it specifically to wear with v-neck garments, I pretty much can't because the scallop edges are not within the scope of the cup, but extend past and can peek (at the very least) out beyond all the neck edges.
I just came back from wearing it out for the 2nd time...and, even more than the usual sigh of happiness from taking off a bra, my body practically did a jig from taking this off.
It's a shame, because it is a pretty bra and it does fit (me) well, but there are just too many things that make it uncomfortable/impracticable to actually wear. Since I have worn it twice, I guess I really can't return it and since it was only 19.99, it's not too bad a loss.
Note, I saw a lot of reviews about it being tight. It is a front loader with only a single latching position, so unless you happen to be lucky that the placement of that is exactly where you need it, the size will be off. In my case, the position was okay and the fit was fine.
