Playtex Secrets Cottony Gel Comfort Strap&reg; Underwire Bra
I have been buying this bra from JMS for years. Once they stopped offering it and I was devistated. I sent them an email and wa-la. It showed up in the next catalog as a comeback. I know it wasn't all me but am sure glad it came back. It had taken me years to find the perfect bra. It washes well in the washer and I NEVER put in the dryer because it makes the elastic or spandex weak. It is comfortable all around including the gel straps. It is beautiful and looks good under T-shirts or anything I wear. The wires don't poke out front like some wired bras where the wires come up too far in the front. They have never poked me under the arms unless they get so
worn the the material tears. At that point it's time to go. I just keep buying more when they go on sale. PLEASE DON'T EVER QUIT OFFERING THIS BRA.

closest thing to a perfect bra
Please tell Playtex to not ever stop making this bra. Just when you find the right bra the company stops making it. This style has all the best features and I will not wear any other. As bras for larger women go none are completely comfortable to wear but this one is the closest to it I have found to date and I have had some pretty awful ones. Plus it plunges enough so you don't have to worry about it peaking over necklines and the gel straps are so nice and don't cut into my shoulders.

Returned this item
I am fat with small breasts. All my fats cells are anywhere EXCEPT my breasts, so I am hard to fit. I took new measurements following the size chart directions and ordered the size that should have fit me, 48C. WRONG! The cups are way too large for me, but the band was very comfortable. I did not order a replacement because the Playtex did not offer a 48 with a small enough cup size for me. Perhaps someday they will understand that being fat doesn't mean big breasts, or in my case, practically no breasts. I loved the look and feel of the bra, but in a 48C, I could put at least 2 pairs of socks in each cup without discomfort.

Comfortable, Supportive, and Beautiful!
I have been a fan of this bra, and several other "Secrets" styles I have tried, for years! They fit well, don't ride up in the back, and the straps stay put. Take time to choose the correct cup size for you and there is no spilling out either. They support, but yet are still light enough to be comfy here in the desert southwest. These are the only bras I buy.
