Rated 3 out of 5 by hill Best bra I've ever owned, but a piece of junk
I buy two of these each year and they always fall apart. The hooks dislodge from the fabric. the seams separate - it's a mess.
While the bra holds together it is the most wonderful, comfortable, flattering bra I have ever owned! I'm a 34DDD - not an easy size to find everywhere and since I am natural and older, I need good support - this bra offers that in spades - for as long as it holds together.
I handwash my bras and lay flat to dry. They're pricey and I take care of them. WHY OH WHY, Spanx, CAN YOU NOT FIX THIS PROBLEM?!?!? Reviews are filled with this issue for this bra! I am buying my 9th and 10th today - that's a lot of dough. I'd like to have them for longer than a year to 18 months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cat123 Frustrated too!
I agree with "Frustrated"'s review.... awesome bra that does everything i want it to. I have lots of trouble spots, and this bra makes me look awesome and smooth. I can wear any top with it and look great from every angle.
But the construction does fail after not too long. the elastic glue wears away and the hooks pull out of place and dissapear into the fabric (i stiched mine now to prolong the life of the bra#. I thought that maybe i was wearing a size too small and causing too much strain on the fabric, but when i tried a bigger size it was much too large.
If the bra was cheaper i might not mind having to re-buy the bras like i have been #about to make my 4th or 5th purchase), but for the price i expect it to last longer, even with semi-regular use.
Great bra, bu please make it last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kerrie1 The shape is beautiful.
The side-slimming feature shapes the breast so beautifully especially for a D cup. I never wear anything else; best bra I have ever worn. I get complements that my senior figure rivals a younger woman!

by Frustrated Love this bra but...
Love this bra but have had a few problems with the construction. The hooks are pulling out from where they are sewn on the back and the elastic on side has come out of where it is glued in. I love this bra and it seems that I am not the only one that this is happening to after seeing other reviews. SPANX PLEASE fix this issue!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Erika Poor Quality Closures!!
I have purchased three of the Bra-llywood Hills bras in the past year. At first I was SO happy with them, but I am very disappointed to find all three have been very poorly constructed, with the hooks coming out of the fabric on the back of the bra. This is happening even though I am handwashing. I have contacted customer service and I hope to have a resolution to this issue. I would hate to be out all that money!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Didimama Great for the first 3 months
I previously exclusively wore the Brallujah but wanted some more side support and was happy with this bra for the first three months until it literally started to come apart at the seams which appear to be glued together, as another reviewer mentioned. On top of that, the hook closures also started to fall out! For the price, this bra was a complete disappointment in terms of quality. I am 5"4, 135 pounds and ordered the 36B. Hopefully, the fact that this bra completely fell apart on me didn't have to do with my side and back fat, which this bra was allegedly supposed to assist with and help contain. I never had a problem with the quality of the Brallujahs. I contacted customer service thinking that I may have received a defective bra and while they were polite and quickly responded, the impression I got was that this was just how this line of bras were made. It's a sore disappointment as the concept was great but the execution poor. I would attach pictures, if there was an option, to indicate the extent of the flimsiness of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pam5000 Comfortable with great lift
Best bra I've ever owned! This is the only bra I can wear with underwire that offers a smooth look and no pinching. De-emphasizes back and side, ummm, fat (not that we have that problem, right?).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tracie12 Bad design of hooks!
I bought this same bra about 18 months ago and had to return it because the hooks pulled completely out of the material making the bra unusable. Read the reviews and other had experienced this same problem. I thought after waiting a few months, Spanx would get it right and fix the problem so i purchased another one. That was real dumb of me - the first time I wore the bra the hooks started pulling out. Now 1 of the hooks has completely pulled out and I can no longer wear this bra. It is a great fit and so comfortable but this hook problem makes it absolutely impossible to wear. Do not buy this bra - do not buy this bra - do not buy this bra. I am saying that to remind myself to never buy this bra again.
