Playtex Secrets Plunge Lift Underwire Bra
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.

Best bra in a long time
I'll be honest. I didn't have high expectations for this bra. I am an insanely busy woman who very often works late late and then falls asleep in her bra -- and consequently I go through a lot of them. Quickly, as their weaknesses reveal themselves to me much more rapidly than would be the case for others. But I had a coupon for free shipping and so I thought "what the heck." And these are so darn cute. Well, it's been a month, and am I every surprised. This is one of the sturdiest and most comfortable bras I have ever owned. It's better - far, far better - than any of the more expensive stores bras. It's well designed, and sturdy, and does not bind or pinch or rub on my underarm. It does not poke me. The underwire has not started coming out (which usually happens to me within 30 days).
One small complaint: the cups are a smidge too small, so I have too much cleavage. However, that is a problem I will happily deal with. Good job, JMS! You've found yourself a loyal customer.

Love the fabric, hardly notice underwire.
I have two of the regular secrets bras without underwire. After weight loss surgery, I needed a bra that could help lift and define my chest without the constricture of a heavy duty underwire. The plunge lift underwire bra gives me definition and pushes me together to give me a cleavage I have never had before. The underwire does not constrict my ribcage and allows upper body movement with no pinching or constant rearranging.

Muffin Top Twins!
I wear 36DD in all other Playtex styles so I wasn't hesitant to buy this when I ordered the others. This plunge did not meet my expectations. I spill over the top, big time. You can tell, because I get that look of having "muffin top" breasts. With the right loose fitting shirt and a tank top fitted underneath, I can get by, so I will use this on laundry day.
