Bali Satin Tracings Underwire Minimizer Bra
Well, in the interest of complete disclosure, I have never met an underwire bra I liked. Bali used to make minimizers without underwires -- what happened to them? This one is smaller - both in the cup and around the band - than other models in my size. I suppose it's as comfortable as an underwire bra can ever be -- which is, not very. However, it is black and it is a minimizer, which is what I needed when I bought it. But I don't think I'll be wearing it often.

I recently tried this bra because my other minimizers (Edith Lance) are very expensive and difficult to find. It is a good minimizer, and the price is reasonable. I find them comfortable even though I have large breasts (36 DD and DDD) and it holds it all in without hurting the shoulders. It remains comfortable all day. I am short, so the straps are fine for me, even though some customers complain that they are too short.

Finally, a bra where the straps are not only comfortable, but they stay in place!! The back smoothing is excellent, and the shaping is natural. I don't really feel like "I'm wearing a bra". My only complaint is that the middle part sometimes sticks out a little because it's so high up. Other than that, I love it!

The style is great. The quality is poor.
I've worn this style for years and as a heavy-chested female, I appreciate a properly supportive bra. This time I was really disappointed. Instead of 4 hooks, the closure has been reduced to 3 hooks, which did not feel as stable.
The worst part is the underwire popped through the fabric after 2 wearings. I didn't want to be difficult, so I just stitched it up myself. The next time i wore the bra, the underwire popped out of the other side of the fabric. Essentially, I wasted my time and my money.
