Playtex Secrets Side Smoothing Wirefree Bra
Band smaller than others of same size.
Ordered 4 playtex in 4 different styles and same size. 2 fit fine, and this one was too small. Returned to exchange for another one of the ones that fit fine. Too bad it takes so long (3-4 weeks per the website) for an exchange to be processed.

this bra is defective!
It probably deserves 5 stars but something's very wrong. It's supposed to be a B cup, I'd guess it's at least a D. I'll be sending it back to attempt a truer size. A mailing label should be provided, I'll be calling. There's a delay in this claim as I've been in the hospital.

Runs small but great!
I wear a 44d or 44dd and ordered a 44d because other reviewers said cups run large. NO they do not. My 44d, the band was way too tight and the cup was too small. I am pretty excited for the bra though, it may be what I am looking for. I just now re-ordered (will send my other one back) and got a 46dd, should be perfect. So to sum it up, I am a 44d or 44dd and needed a 46dd. Can't tell you how it wears as I am waiting for my new one but when I put on the too small one, I think I'm gonna like it. Hopefully it really will smooth the sides and not bulge, that is my biggest problem. I will repost when new one comes.

Still giving it a try
Considering this is my first real attempt to switching out my sports bras to "real" bras, I am still up in the air about how I feel with this particular product. First of all, following the size chart provided did not work for me since the product ran large. I'll probably have to get measured in a local department store prior to online purchasing. The material feels comfy, but does not really "smooth" the sides. Being heavy, I realistically did not expect any smoothing to happen. In my case, I'll need more material to cover the back to really smooth anything out. In contrast to my good 'ol sports bras, this bra has good support & lift. I ordered two of the same product with different colors, but only one arrived - the other was out of stock. Oh well, better luck next time.
