Rated 4 out of 5 by NettyBird16 LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!
I would NEVER have chosen this bra to try on. I am 5'1", 45 and have recently lost 70 pounds and now weigh 170. (I wear a size large t-shirt now). The salesperson in the store recommended this bra to me, so I tried it on. LOVED it. It is very comfortable but nice and firm on the sides. Does not poke in the armpits if fitted correctly. I cannot stress the importance of being fitted correctly. I initially purchased 2 of these at a size 38D in September 2013. Just went back for 2 more (May 2014) and thought maybe I should get fitted since I have lost 30 more pounds. Went home with 2 new size 36DD. I agree with all the other reviews that the straps do not stay tightened as I like. I went ahead and just machine sewed a small line across each strap a couple times to keep them where I like them to be permanently! I would have given it 5 stars if I didn't have to sew the straps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shortand58 Finally, a great fitting bra for "women of a certain age"
I am petite, just 5' tall and 98 lbs. However, I am still a little busty. At 58 years old, my girls need good support. After ordering 2 with too large a cup size (I did follow the sizing instructions), the 34A cup fits perfectly. And this bra has narrow straps! Hooray for us still wearing tank tops! This bra is one of the most comfortable support bras I have worn. The only small drawback is that as the day wears on, the straps tend to elongate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoolGrandma Best fitting bra I have bought in a long time!
I used to buy all bra's from VSC, but they are now too skimpy, and Spanx bra's are the best, not too tight, no bulges, and show off the girls just right!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Debbistar underwire in the middle met in a funny way
Hi, for some reason the Bra-leluja bras don't fit me well; I have a Brallywood Hills that I love. But I wish it were push-up, and/or demi. So I had high hopes for the balconette. BOO HOO. Underwire pokes my armpits, and awkwardly meets in the middle.
I'm a 38D, size 16 or so, age 51, 3 kids. So I'm fighting flab and gravity. I LOVE your shapers and camis!
Most of all, I love your focus and your positive attitude. As a bigger person I am self-conscious but there's no judgment here. I truly appreciate it. (And as an advertising copywriter, I LOVE to read your site! If you ever need any freelance writing help, let me know. You can pay me in Slim Cognito!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Denise02 Very comfortable
very nice, very comfortable. The shoulder straps do NOT stay in place, that is only disappointment I have for this bra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenfromATL I LOVE IT!
This bra is extremely comfortable and stays in place. I have a problem with straps falling down and this one is holding up well so far. There is not a lot of padding so if you are looking for a fair bit of pad this won't do the trip but it gives great shape.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HulaGirl Straps are poorly constructed
The only reason I'm giving this bra a less than stellar review is the straps. They don't stay up and when you adjust them, they won't stay in the spot you adjusted them to. So, in essence, they don't have adjustable straps. I'm petite and that's a big problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FaerieGirl Not my very favorite but still a great bra.
I have a ton of bras, all different manufacturers. Spanx is still my favorite even at their price. This one did seem a little tight in the band but I do think the next size would be too loose. I wear a 34C in all the other Spanx bras so will stick to it.
