Bali Satin Tracings Underwire Minimizer Bra
Have been wearing this bra for a few years, after over 40 years wearing the flower bali. It is generally comfortable, but does protrude in the center front, so I possibly need a larger cup size than the 42G I am wearing. Have not seen larger cup sizes offered in this style, and so may be forced to look to another brand. Also, one of the underwires of this style has recently worked its way through the fabric channel in the center front, to protrude upwards...and I never put my bras in the dryer, so I don't know what is up with that. The padded straps are great, and the 4- hook back helps support.

I recently tried this bra because my other minimizers (Edith Lance) are very expensive and difficult to find. It is a good minimizer, and the price is reasonable. I find them comfortable even though I have large breasts (36 DD and DDD) and it holds it all in without hurting the shoulders. It remains comfortable all day. I am short, so the straps are fine for me, even though some customers complain that they are too short.

Makes my back feel good
Have been wearing this bra for a long time, and as funny as it sounds, it helps my back feel good. I do tend to change my bras daily, depending on what I am doing. But, when my back is hurting, this is the go to bra. I am only 5' tall, and wear a 36DDD, so I tend to stoop with the top weight. This bra helps me to stand up straight, allows me to wear tops that fit correctly. I have never had a problem with wire breakage, or with the bras stretching out, and I wash and dry these on delicate cycle in my machines. My only complaint is colour choices. It would also be nice if they came in cotton, again.

Wire problem/no color choices for plus
I have been wearing this bra for years as I love the minimizing effects. HOWEVER, I buy too frequently due to wire always coming out (breaking) and I hand wash and hang dry. It also protrudes in the front and the bow has to be cut off. Wish I could find a better minimizer with more color choices for my size. If you are only going to have one color it should be nude.
