Rated 1 out of 5 by Norma Way too small
I wear a 38D all the time and I couldn't even do this up. Sending it back and hoping the return goes smoothly. My first time ordering spanx bras and one was too big and one too small. :-(. I had such high hopes for great comfort.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LinnyC Side-Slimming Bra
I returned this, I expected side-slimming would mean wider sides and a wider back band, this was not the case.
For the price I expected LeMystere quality but this was cheaply made, hardware for strap adjustment was cheap in quality as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CedarKate Bra Size
I ordered the size I've worn for a number of years, but this bra was at least two sizes too small and I've had to return it.

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!!
