Rated 4 out of 5 by Lisa22 Wonderful, if your breasts are the same size
It's a nice bra, smooth back, good for snug tops. My smooth-back bras all have molded cups, bec. I get nippy and try to conceal it. I bought this bra to wear under bulky sweaters - autumn is coming! - because a friend showed me hers after I remarked that she looked thinner. I want to look smaller, so I thought, give it a try. But one cup wrinkles. Pity because I do like the bra. Note: according to my friend, this bra stretches out. She has to keep replacing hers, a couple per year. It's worth it to her, bec. it does the job so well. My smooth-back bras from Soma also stretch out - it's evidently unavoidable with this smooth-back style.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kimbot68 Worst bra ever
I really, really hate writing negative reviews, but in this case I felt I had no choice. After trying both a D and a DD-cup in this style my conclusion remains the same for both cup sizes: poorly made, no support, uncomfortable (one too small, one too large), and oddly cut.
No matter what I did the bra would show either under my armpit, askew from my tank top straps, or along the bust-line. There was absolutely no way to keep this bra hidden under my clothing (and I by no means wear revealing tops). The underwire in the larger cup size was so high on the outer sides it dug painfully into my armpits.
Even with underwire, there is virtually no support with this bra. The center is cut wide, meaning the breasts are pushed apart in a sense, creating very odd-looking cleavage (or lack thereof). With the D-cup I had an indention along the top of my breast and I spilled out under my armpits, while with the DD there was so much extra material it wouldn't lie flat under my clothing and bunched up.
The workmanship and quality leaves much to be desired. After wearing the bra approximately 5 hours only twice the back began to lose its elasticity, buckle, and "ride up", while the cup material became even more loose, causing a strange "sagging" affect. With the underwire somewhat supporting and the material giving absolutely no support this created an extremely unflattering look: much like Snoopy's nose pointed downward (odd indeed).
The only saving grace of this bra has been the wide, solid straps of the DD, but without collaboration from the cup material, the straps themselves serve no purpose. The straps of the D-cup had ZERO support and were thin and flimsy. With heavy D or DD size breasts this is a big no-no. A bra should support (isn't that the intention of a bra?) the breasts. The cup material is so thin it offers absolutely no coverage and my nipples were fully visible with both cup sizes, whether I was cold or not. Yikes!
Bottom line for me: if you're looking for support, some degree of modesty, and/or comfort, this is not the bra for you. This will be my last purchase of a Spanx bra. Swimsuits: awesome! Bras: not so much. Hope my review was helpful. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Holly Most comfortable bra ever!
I love this bra: it is unbelievably comfortable, especially during long, hot summers when I don't want to wear the bra-llelujah with the molded cup. I also prefer the natural look (but it still gives good nipple coverage); the molded cups add a bit of bustline that I'd sometimes rather do without. I'm a 36C and the fit was right on target. Bravo Bra-llelujah!

I have fibromyalgia and something tight around my body causes me pain. The elastic in these bras do not cause me as much pain as do others. I find them excessively expensive, but pay the price for the rellative comfort offered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SusanA bra strap mixed reviews
This may clear up the mixed reviews on the bra strap issues. I have ordered 34D and 34DD in the past and there is a significant difference in the strap constructions. The 34D has those soft, stretchable comfortable straps. In fact I love the entire 34D bra but unfortunately the DD is a better cup fit for me. The 34DD has an inner material inside the straps that is not stretchable and is unyielding.
