Playtex 18 Hour Gel Comfort Strap&reg; Wirefree Bra
Im looking for a bra for a size D with straps that will not dig in, fall off or make me feel like im in cardiac arrest after a couple of hours. The band on this bra the minute i put it on I felt itchy. The cup its self just covered the breast EXACTLY where they lay - in other words there was no LIFTING OF any kind whatsoever even after I adjusted the straps. the only thing I liked about this bra was the gel straps. The straps were amazing but the rest of the bra NEEDS definite improving. Back to the drawing board on this one guys. Its going back immediately.

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.

Looks Great, Can't Wear it
I always wear Playtex so I thought I could order online with confidence, but I couldn't hook the back and the cups were way too tight, even when the bra was unhooked. The sizing is completely off. You have to try this one on in the store before you order. Really disappointed!

Cup size runs smaller than the 18 hr comfort strap
I wanted to try something different than what I normally wear. I ordered the same size do for the platex comfort stra. This bra runs VERY small in the cup area. I was totally disappointed because by sending them back and ordering again, I would have too much wrapped up in them. So I went back to my usual.
