Playtex Secrets Elegant Uplift and Support Underwire Bra
Better than I hoped for
I couldn't find the Playtex bra I was used to so this was the closest I could find. I hoped that it would at least fit and be comfortable to wear. It exceeded my expectations. The straps do not slip at all and as I sit here I've been wearing it for 16 hours and I feel great. I would definitely recommend it.

Not a good substitute for Playtex Secrets #4132
I bought this bra because my favorite bra (#4132) was no longer available and I have lost 30 lbs since I last stocked up. It would appear that this bra is nowhere near as well-made as the other bra. The workmanship, features,and quality differences between #4717 and #4132 are significant. First I did not notice there is no additional side support panel on the #4717, which is important to me as a heavy-busted woman. Second, the cup on this bra is divided into into 3 sections as opposed to one smooth comfortable cup of soft material. The bottom of the cup is a satin material, which is not even stitched, but has rough edges, then comes a small section which is the back of the bra front, then a 1/4 inch wide seam in the center which is not even finished properly on the edges and is already pulling loose and I haven't even worn the bra yet. The straps on a bra are extremely important to me and this bra has a large seam right at the top of the shoulder area, which digs right in where the most weight is distributed. #4132 had the most comfortable straps I have ever had on a bra. Since I don't want to pay shipping to send the 2 bras back, I will keep them for back-up. Too bad they no longer make my favorite bra.

I am not a big shopper and have struggled for years to find a great fitting bra. Yea! I found it!! I can't get over how much nicer my figure looks with this bra. No poking, no discomfort. But super support and great fit. I don't have to think about adjusting the bra throughout the day.
I am back to buy more because I need to throw away all my previous styles. They simply can't compete!! And the best part, it is an attractive bra so I like how I look before I put on my shirt!

This is a good bra
I ordered one at first to try and then I came back to order one more. The bra is well made and the whole bra is constructed with stretch satin and lace fabrics. It is a very pretty bra but beauty is what beauty does. It fits snugly on your body and it doesn't move after you put it on. The no- slip straps stay put. and are very comfortable. They do not dig into your shoulders. There is no ride up at the back, It is in the same place on your body when you take it off as when you put it on in the morning. That is important to me for the support. The under wires are well padded and not noticeable except for the great support and appearance they provide.
