Hanes Fully Padded Wirefree Bra
Best padded bra for small breasted women!
This is the only review I have ever written in my life, but I'm so frustrated over the discontinuance of this bra that I must speak my heart. This is the best padded bra I've ever found! I'm not quite a B cup, but the poly-fill padding fills in where I'm lacking and gives a very natural look with or without a shirt on. The poly-fill does not cave in like foam padding does. Plus they are very comfortable! At my age, I'm not interested in push-ups, plunges, or other contortion-type bras! I want comfortable bras that make me look good and feel good! These bras do both! They are machine washable and machine dryable and still hold their shape after numerous washings. I also like the adjustable straps. I discovered these bras about 4-5 years ago and now it's the only kind I wear. It irritates me that this bra has been discontinued!! (I just happened to find some by googling "discontinued Hanes bras.") Why, Hanes, are you discontinuing a perfect product???? I wish you would reinstate them and add, at least, a beige or nude color.

What a pleasure to find a grown-up bra in a 36-A size! This modestly padded bra is very pretty and comfortable, without being bulky. I love it!

It has really good coverage for show through. The cups seem to be a little to close together. I spill out some compared to other bras that I have purchased from Hanes.

Needs better finishing
Pros: The cups are perfect, comfortable and give just enough extra, without gaping. Sizing on cups is correct.
Cons: The chest size is very small. I had to order 36 instead of my usual 34 and even there, I use the last set of hooks.
Also, where the straps attach and adjust in front: it's bulky and not smoothly finished, so the doubled over strap digs in. You get what you pay for, this is inexpensively made and they cut corners on the straps. I'd pay a little more for better design and finishing.
If that detail doesn't bother you, and you order one chest size larger, this is a very good bra and value and their best "padded" style..
I ordered white and black, but neutral would be nice also.
