Rated 2 out of 5 by 2014Kathy Straps are Way Too Tight
I ordered this bra in a 32 DD. The band and the cups fit great and are comfortable. The straps are way too tight.
I have been trying to stretch out the straps with very little luck because they are made of thick, very stiff elastic. I called Spanx and they said that even if I went up to a 34 band size that the straps would not be longer. I am only 5' 3" so I don't understand why they made the straps so short and uncomfortable compared to the rest of the bra.
The interesting thing is that the material that is covering the straps is longer than the elastic inside (the elastic flows free inside the nice covering material). It is like they expected the elastic to be able to stretch to match the covering but use the wrong kind of elastic that does not stretch well. The video on the Spanx site shows really stretchy straps but the video does not match this product.
It is too bad that the straps are too tight, uncomfortable and not adjustable. Spanx got the cups and band right but really missed the comfort objective with the straps.
I decided not to send the bra back. I think I may try to remove the elastic and replace with something more comfortable. I hate to do this on such an expensive bra but it is difficult for me to find a band and cups that fit me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shannon Not what I was hoping for....
I was super excited to try this bra and when I put it on it wasn't what I had in mind at all. It felt like I was wearing a child's garment. On the model is looks like a normal fitting bra, but on me it rode so high up that I could literally look down and touch the bra cups with my chin. It was like a miniature vest! It also seemed so small that wires were literally in my arm pits, very uncomfortable. I'm still willing to try other styles but I am going to return this one. Maybe the shoulder straps need a bit more length to them??

Rated 4 out of 5 by fb322 Wonderful but pricey
I'm a big fan of this bra. It needs to be washed more frequently than other bra's in that the elastic doesn't rebound the way others do. It doesn't hold up as well as others either but the fit it wonderful. I would very, very much like to see the price of this bra reduced from $62 to something more commensurate with its durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annie627 This product is the best!
I love, love, love this bra! I have to say that, after measuring and ordering my usual size (36B), it arrived and was slightly too big. I returned it for a 36A and it fits perfectly. This by far is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn
. I have it in two colors. Please Spanx people, get more in of the pink and vanilla.

Rated 1 out of 5 by colorado22 I thought this was like the previous unpadded bra-llelujah
I say it feels small because I overflow the cups. Why is it that Spanx thinks that all women want to overflow their bra? When this unpadded bra existed before it was a perfect fit--now it is not. I would not recommend this bra at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by winterwench Welcome back #335 !
I agree with "Jennie" below ! I've been in mourning for months, as my size in this style was not available. I was afraid Spanx might be discontinuing it, a frequent occurrence with things I really, really like !
Thank you, thank you for restocking this style; would like to have it offered in "minimalist" shade as well, but I'm a happy camper "in the 'nude' "...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennie Best bra ever.
Thank you for bringing this back. After spending hundreds of dollars on other bras I still haven't found one that fits. You made my year!
