Valmont Embroidered Lace Front Hook Underwire Bra
I love the look and feel of this bra. After zeroing in on my correct size (variances due to brands), I have not had any issues as described by other reviewers regarding size, scratchiness, or breaking clasps. The bras are sexy, comfortable, and no poking wires.
Yes, the fabric is not as smooth as some, but I expected some degree of roughness due to the fabric design. A couple of washings resolved most of the roughness. I have worn 3 of this style without any clasps breaking.
My only complaint would be the colors are not anywhere close to true to the online images. My latest, BLUE, was very pale, not even as much as a baby blue.

LOOKS ARE DECEIVING!
I saw this bra & thought it was beautiful. I went by what the details said about the soft lace, great support etc. I've never been a fan of underwires or front closures of any kind. I was looking for something sexy & decided to throw caution to the wind. Well, I ordered this bra in 4 color. I should've known better! Theses bras are NOT soft lace, the material is so scratchy! They're NOT comfy underwires, nor do the tiny little front plastic clasps work well(they also hurt & pinch!! And that includes the underwires!). The bra didn't fit very well either. They run a size smaller than your regular size. BEWARE! Unless pain & pinching & scratchy material are worth it to you!!!! It's a beautiful bra, looks-wise. But, that's it!!

support is not that great....hook is NOT secured to the bra...it is secured to a grosgrain ribbon which breaks after about 4 wearings from the rubbing of the hook on the ribbon. stupid way to hook something up. had to secure to the bra myself.

I was anxious when I received my bra as I had never worn a front hook bra before. Once I had it on, I had my sister-in-law adjust the straps for me and it was very comfortable. The next day, I adjusted the straps up a little more, and by gosh, it fit like a glove! I love the pink color and beautiful embroidery. I found it had great side support and the underwires added to the way it felt when wearing. I can't wait to order my next bra from JMS.
