Playtex 18 Hour Ultimate Lift & Support Wirefree Bra
I was happy to find a style to replace the one I've worn for years but was never that comfortable in (the original 18 hour comfort strap---the straps were comfortable but the large band underneath was not).
I like the smooth, soft cups and the support without underwires or a thick band underneath. The fit seems much more natural.
Constructive criticism: the padded straps don't reach far enough over the shoulder. They stop right on the acromion--need about another inch. A little wider would be nice. In other words if you moved the shoulder straps from the original 18 hour onto the body of this bra, it just might be perfect.
The jury's still out on how well it holds up over time. The original 18 hour was pretty much bomb proof. I hope this style is as well.

Nice bra but cups run small
I need a 40 DDD but the girls kept bluging out of the cups on this bra. So, I went to a 42 DDD, hooked it in the tightest notch which makes the cups a tiny bit bigger & then cup size works okay. Still slight bluge at times (don't think it shows through my shirts) but works ok--not nearly as bad as the other style smooth cup no-wire (same brand) I just reviewed as well. Wished they'd make them with a bit more coverage in the mid-chest area of the cups so this problem would no longer occur. Guess it's just how I'm shaped?!? Good luck!

Usually when I come home from work the first things off are my shoes followed immediately by my bra. Not so with this bra. I don't even think to take it off before bedtime! A beautiful bra, comfortable straps. Would like to see in more colors.

Very comfortable and attractive.
Although the band is large on me, I find this the most comfortable bra I ever owned.
