Rated 5 out of 5 by HSpu This is my all-time favorite bra.
I love this bra, supportive and so comfortable. I won't wear any other bra since I purchased my Bra-vo!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rev124 like the bra, size all wrong
I measure 38" under my bust, but I'm now buying a size 42 to get a correct fit, that also means I'm buying bras with heaver hooks than I need and which I don't like. Please check your quality control.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Suej needs tweaked
I am on the fence on recommending this product. I love the back of the bra.The front and the straps are another story. Numerous times I have had the front of the bra come unhooked. The straps also come unhooked. Very embarassing at work. I had to get undressed in the restroom to get everything hooked back up. Maybe I should try a larger size. It would be nice if Spanx would offer us some type of discount offer on another bra. It was not a cheap bra and I usually only get 2 a year. I've been buying my bras at Spanx for years and have never had this problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AtlMom3 The idea is good
I have to agree with some of the previous reviews. I have experienced the problem of everything coming unhooked if I move certain ways. I also have the problem of the edge of the cups curling a bit and showing under my shirts. I hand wash and hang dry my bras and I feel they have not aged well over the year. I will continue to wear them because they also minimize projection and that works under many of my button up shirts, until I find a substitute.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Susan76 Way too much flab showing
I really wanted to like this bra. I have worn SHAPEEZ for 15 years and love them! Spanx stores were close so I decided to try. First, I hated the front closure. With my Shapeez bra, I just need to lift it over my head which eliminates the hooks in the front. While it was great that Spanx decided to create this bra, the design is flawed. It does smooth back fat in the middle of your back but underneath arm pits there is no coverage. So all the smoothing pushes flab out underneath the armpits and out underneath the band. Shapeez has a variety of bras to choose from. There is a bra that allows you to wear a tank shirt..cut low enough but provides full coverage in all areas. Spanx needs to redesign this. Until then, I am staying with the best back smoothing bra out there..SHAPEEZ.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kcnc Good in theory, but some major flaws
I have purchase three of these bras in the same size but different colors, and all three turned out a little different.
First, the design of the back is FANTASTIC. Why doesn't every bra have a tank-like back! It's awesome - if not a little warm in summer.
The front is where the problems are. First, the bra, right out of the box, is VERY stiff in the underwire region - the seams that wrap around the underwire are extremely sharp and can do real damage to delicate skin. After a few wearings/washings, that problem was totally eliminated in one of my bras (comfortable), sort of eliminated in the second, and totally unfixed in another! That third bra is so uncomfortable, that I'm practically ripping it off at the end of the day.
But, still, I know comfort isn't everything. You know what is everything? A bra that STAYS CLIPPED. On all three of these bras that I've purchased, the bottom 2 clasps simply don't. stay. clipped. Then the upper clasp gets so stressed, that it pulls out! I've had one of these bras come totally undone TWICE while at work. Awkward.
Still I stick with them, because of the back coverage. I'm thinking of taking out the clasps all together and creating a ribbon tie up on these bras. Spanx should really resolve this issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pamby123 Product good but needs some changes
The Bra-vo Back-Smoothing Underwire does exactly what it says by smoothing the back. For me it makes my back look smooth under my clothing and I couldn't be more pleased. The things I am not happy with are the front is hard to hook and I had a red rash on the skin under my breast from the fabric over the underwire.
Did not return the second bra because the itchy redness has subsided after a couple of washings of the first Bra-vo Bra.
Hope this info can be of help in future if others have the same problem.
