Rated 2 out of 5 by SheliaP Straps?
The back part was very nice- which is why I ordered this, and the basic fit looked fine. However, I never managed to get the straps to"stay". Since the connection was in the front-- maybe mine was a fluke, but it would not stay attached, for lack of a better explanation. I have returned it, and may order another at some other time to see if this is how it is made, or perhaps made this way.
I am disappointed that Spanx does not offer more products for women who are truly 'curvy' and tall. There are very few bras and other which I can get for my size that give me support, actually anywhere anymore, but I had hoped Spanx was different. I am only 5'8" and weigh about 185 in a normal hourglass distribution-- so curvy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Muffintopextreme Excellent idea but needs a little work
I like this bra a lot except for one thing. I hate the cups of the bra. They are unnaturally shaped, making it look like my boobs reside on the upper part of my chest, 'looking' upward. I hate, hate, hate that unnatural look! This looks like a good bra for the middle 1950s. Is this made in a softer, more naturally shaped cup?
Besides that, one other improvement could be made in the bras for plus-sized women: increase coverage from the mid-armpit area to the shoulder bra strap to eliminate back/armpit muffin top.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Darkwing11 Underwire uncomfortable
The bra wasn't as comfy as I was expecting it to be seemed like the underwire was very uncomfortable and material was scratchy not soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HSpu This is my all-time favorite bra.
I love this bra, supportive and so comfortable. I won't wear any other bra since I purchased my Bra-vo!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rev124 like the bra, size all wrong
I measure 38" under my bust, but I'm now buying a size 42 to get a correct fit, that also means I'm buying bras with heaver hooks than I need and which I don't like. Please check your quality control.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Suej needs tweaked
I am on the fence on recommending this product. I love the back of the bra.The front and the straps are another story. Numerous times I have had the front of the bra come unhooked. The straps also come unhooked. Very embarassing at work. I had to get undressed in the restroom to get everything hooked back up. Maybe I should try a larger size. It would be nice if Spanx would offer us some type of discount offer on another bra. It was not a cheap bra and I usually only get 2 a year. I've been buying my bras at Spanx for years and have never had this problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AtlMom3 The idea is good
I have to agree with some of the previous reviews. I have experienced the problem of everything coming unhooked if I move certain ways. I also have the problem of the edge of the cups curling a bit and showing under my shirts. I hand wash and hang dry my bras and I feel they have not aged well over the year. I will continue to wear them because they also minimize projection and that works under many of my button up shirts, until I find a substitute.
