Playtex Secrets Plunge Lift Underwire Bra
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.

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.

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!

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!
