Playtex Secrets Plunge Lift Underwire Bra
Runs SO small!!!
This bra appears to be of good quality, similar in construction to the other Playtex bras I have purchased in the past. However, I cannot rate it highly because it runs so small. I wear a 40B in every Playtex bra I have ever purchased - and I pretty much only purchase Playtex because of the good fit, good quality, and excellent durability I have experienced. This bra, which I bought in my usual 40B size, fit as if it was (and I am not exaggerating) a 36A. The band was SUPER tight, even at the loosest setting (in my other Playtex bras I comfortably use the middle set of hooks). My chest was spilling out of the sides of the bra while in front the bra held me flat. I was really surprised, and I am returning It. It was so small I cannot even say that I would be confident buying a 42C to make up the smallness of this bra - I fear it would have to be even bigger than that!

I just love this bra!
I have had two mastectomies and have difficulty finding a comfortable bra. This one is so comfortable I hardly know I have it on - and it's still pretty and fun! Very flattering too.

Sexy, but short life.
I bought two of these bras in different colors and was thrilled when I put one on! It was surprisingly comfortable and gave me super-sexy cleavage! The only down side is the wires popped out within a few weeks on one of them. The other one seems to be about to pop out. I was disappointed by that, but I love the bra so much anyway that I am going to try to fix them. I read that some people find them very durable though, so I say give it a try!

My cups runneth over
We'll start with the good: Very pretty bra, love the two-toned look and bow accent. And for an underwire bra it is surprisingly comfortable. The straps don't dig in either, always a plus.
The bad: I bought my usual size (38DD) but the cups did not contain my breasts nor did they adequately cover, well, let's just say an essential area. I don't mind a little jiggle on some occasions but, as another reviewer noted, the resulting double muffin-top look was not at all flattering. For the sake of propriety, I'll stick with a less comfortable strapless bra to wear under low-cut tops.
