Rated 4 out of 5 by LAMc good but needs adjustable straps and shows early signs of wear
This bra is comfortable and invisible but supportive under clothes -- it doesn't look like much on its own, but that's not a huge priority for me. I bought one each of this style of Bra-llelujah -- 91% Nylon/9% Spandex -- and the similar looking "soft touch" version -- 81% Modal/19% Spandex.There turned out to be a dramatic difference in fit between the two. I'm hoping that difference is consistent, since I just ordered two more of this style. The straps on this version are about right on me, although perhaps a little loose -- the straps on the "soft touch" style are way too short and force me to constantly yank the bra down. Lovely.
In both cases, Spanx could fix the problem and do us all a favor by making the straps adjustable. As many others have observed, women are not all built alike, so unless Spanx wants to introduce an array of bras with different strap lengths, they should provide wearers with some way of adjusting them.
I am also a bit concerned that after only two hand washings, it is showing visible signs of wear. I normally keep bras for years, because I take good care of them, so this is not a good omen. Still, the comfort is worth the risk of premature wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sewme Great fit except for straps
This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn, with some help from my sewing machine. The straps are very short and are not adjustable. In this respect, one size does not fit all. By adding 4" of elastic to each strap these become the best bra I have ever purchased. It's a shame I have to purchase a $62.00 bra and cut it up. Spanx, please take my comment into consideration and start making this wonderful bra with adjustable straps! : )

Rated 1 out of 5 by Teri82 Wires popping out!
I was disappointed in this purchase. Originally I loved the bra but the wires popped out on both sides which makes it impossible to wear any longer. I tried to fix the bra but they keep popping back out. I do not recommend this bra.
I have other bras from Spanx and so far I am very satisfied with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Summer Straps are stretchy and not adjustable
I'm petite. I love the feel of the bra w/ the wider shoulder straps. However, the straps are stretchy and can't be adjusted. The bra would be great if I could adjust the shoulder straps to fit properly and provide the correct support needed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by aha0413 Plastic hook is flimsy, unreliable & inappropriate for this price lingerie
Same experience as other reviewer. The bra is very comfortable and does smooth out the back but VERY VERY short wear life. With handwashing (and hang to dry) expect to get more than 2 months life. So very sad. - ALMOST right - but cheap execution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Babs3731 Spanx on the Decline
I started wearing Spanx about 10 years ago and was in love with all of their products. Over the last few years the products started declining in quality (clasps breaking, cups buckling, etc.) but I bought two of these bras and they are by far the worst! The fit is uncomfortable and very snug. I figured they would stretch over time but now three months later the cups have totally lost shape and the straps are still really tight. I am sending these back and will start searching for a new favorite bra. Disappointed to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Msdeb This is my second one
I bought this bra last year, and have worn it a lot. It stretched out a bit, to be expected, so I just ordered a new one. It feels a tiny bit snug, but I know that it will stretch a bit. I love it. It looks great under tee shirts, or dress tops. I am 5'3, 120 lbs, and ordered a 34 c Would definitely order another.
