Rated 2 out of 5 by Dale not the front hook minimizer I like.
Back rolled and front uncomfortable. I keep looking for the bra I like and none are available in my size. Are you discontinuing them? Hope not. I like a 40 c or 38 d in nude.

I bought 2 of these bras, which are far from cheap. Silly me, I thought that meant they were well-made. BOTH bras within 2 weeks of use had their underwire break through the material and stab me in the side-boob/under arm area. What a waste. I will never buy anything from Spanx again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dianne94 Will buy again
I am a short, size 12, age 55+ needing cup support and back-smoothing coverage.
My favourite boutique told me my clothes would look better if I changed my bra style. I was wearing cute, sexy and expensive bras ($100+).
Based on reviews I ordered the Minimizer in a 38DD instead of 36DD, my normal size. And in this model 1 size up is the correct size for me. After a couple of wearings and washing, the bra is very comfortable (despite cup under-wiring and side-boning), provides good support, nice proportions without "squashing" breasts in the sports-bra style, and presents a relatively smooth back.
I appreciate the adjustable back closure and straps - useful when you need more comfort by end of day. Simple yet attractive styling.
Owned - 1 month. Will let you know how it wears in 6 months. Assuming it wears well, pricing is on the mark.

It felt great until it stretched out in one month. I did buy the right size. My aunt is going to sew the straps for me this weekend. I was very disappointed.

I want to like this bra, but it was uncomfortable by the end of the day. I want to be able to put on a bra in the morning and forget about it until I take it off at night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by elderfashionista measure size carefully, try on if you can
I purchased this bra by mail. I love how it feels. I think I should have gotten the next larger cup even though I followed the instructions carefully. That said, it is a reasonably good fit for never having tried it on in a store.

I love this because it closes in back and that give you some options if you need to extend or make slightly smaller sometimes (something all you who never change your size wouldn't understand) :-) .
This absolutely puts you where you want to be, if you know what I mean.

If you are slightly larger than a DDD this bra will be too small. Gals that are smaller don't know how lucky they are! The bra is very well made and the material is great but just doesn't fit me. I should have known better. It is so hard to find bras that fit when you are past the DDD size.
