Rated 3 out of 5 by spanxstress on the fence about this bra
I've been through a couple pairs of these. On the one hand, I love how comfortable this bra is, particularly the straps ? they really stay put and don't slip off my shoulders, which I always have a problem with. The fabric is super soft and feels good against my skin. Front closure is great. The cups are nicely molded and give me a good shape under my clothes, and the back looks fantastic under clingy fabrics.
The big downside, as many have noted, is that the band of the bra stretches out *very* fast ? after only a few months of daily wear. I wish Spanx would make a stronger, improved version with some elastic or lycra in the band so they would hold their original size longer. Also, the band fabric pills and starts to look shabby pretty quickly.
Bottom line: at the high price point, it's really hard to justify continuing to buy these. I have a couple I keep on hand to deploy for specific events/outfits, but I don't wear these on a regular basis anymore and I went back to my old bras for daily use, which is a shame because these are way more comfortable.

You get a surprising amount of "hold" with this hosiery based bra. I really appreciate the straps with no metal clips to dig into your shoulders. I wish the straps were a bit more stretchy (and maybe that will happen with time), as my girls seem to be pointed slightly higher than desired. However, I really like the front-hook closure, since that is so much easier to deal with than trying to contort into strange positions with a back-hook bra. I love that the band is just hosiery, with no hooks to poke into your back. That said, all of the "support" does take a toll after a while (especially where the underwire ends under my arms) and I find that I want to take it off as soon as I get home from work. Overall, a good bra for the DD set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJ43 Love the wider straps & closure in the front! It's very soft & so light weight.
I was really hesitate on buying this. But, when I put it on~ It didn't take long to realize I made a Awesome choice! I have quite a bit of back pain & defiantly a lot of shoulder pain. This bra is Perfect ~ There's no digging into your skin or always having to adjust the straps...Nothing! I'm ordering another one today!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mimi107 no support
I tried on the bra and liked the fit, so I washed it and wore it right away. But after wearing it for an hour I found so many flaws. It really provides no support, the bra felt like it fit nice but the bra kept lifting up, and the band rubbed under my arms. Definitely disappointed in this purchase

Rated 3 out of 5 by dd27 Great bra with one problem
I was happy with this bra until the back band started to stretch and the underwire slipped out from under my breasts. Naturally when you sweat or stretch the elastic is going to start to give--especially if the design is made to eliminate bulges in the back. Maybe someone with heavier breasts than mine wouldn't experience this problem. I love this bra because I hate tight straps around my chest. But I have to keep adjusting it because it rides up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bambi Back fabric is great!!
I love the back and strap fabric. It's super stretchy and smooth on the skin. Cup shape is good. Washes well. I use a lingerie bag in the wash and hang to dry. I do think the price is high, though. I'd wait for a sale. The Asset Red Label ones are also great and much more affordable. Not sure if this one is worth spending the additional money.
