Playtex 18 Hour Comfort Shaping Wirefree Bra
I like the fabric of the bra and its fit. However the wide part of the straps is not on the top of the shoulders where you would expect it to be, rather they are on the front of the chest which does not fulfill the purpose for which it was intended. The wide part is supposed to be on the top of the shoulders to prevent the strap from digging in. Also, the strip at the bottom of the cup tends to roll or curl during wear. Over time it can cut into the skin or cause a sore spot to form where it rubs the skin. Since I sew, I took the bras and stitched down the support strip at the bottom. I have since received new bras in a smaller size and before wearing, I also stitched down the support strip. That eliminates the rubbing/chafing and soreness that the wrinkled fabric causes. If you continue to offer these bras, I would suggest that the manufacturer correct these two flaws. Otherwise I like the bras.

Great fit for a well-endowed figure
I recently switched from underwire to wirefree bras due to shoulder issues. The 18 hour bras seem to distribute the weight of my 38DDD breasts better. I bought one of these to try and am ordering more. It's very comfortable and I don't feel any of the digging pressure in my shoulders. The bottom band on some wirefree bras have a tendency to roll on me and it gets annoying. This bra stays put and I don't notice it at all. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for excellent support that's comfortable.

Either I ordered the wrong size or this bra runs REALLY SMALL. I felt like I was tied up & it was really uncomfortable.

Finally found a bra that fits. Being a size 38DDD, this bra gives me support and comfort without having seams. Looks great under knit tops. Please don't stop making this bra.
