On the bad side, it's a uni-boober. It's reasonably comfortable when it's on but when I take it off my breasts actually hurt for a minute while blood circulation resumes. I guess that's the tradeoff for awesome support. My biggest problem with this bra is the paranoid backup snap. The bra fastens with two normal bra hooks (which are plenty in my opinion) but has an extra flap of fabric that closes over those hooks with single plastic snap. That stupid plastic snap does not stay snapped so you're left with a flap of fabric that feels like a bug crawling on back during the entire workout. You can't wear the bra without a shirt because of the flap and you can see it as an ugly bump through your shirt. I'm going to try to remove the plastic snap and sew on a new one of better quality.
February 2011 Update: Six months later this bra is ready for the trash. The seams are coming unravelled and the whole thing is falling apart. I've probably only worn the bra 20 times but I can tell a big difference between the level of support now and when it was new.
It is better than the extreme Shock Absorber that I had before. It holds up better in washing and has virtually no bounce when running or horseback riding. The only bad thing I can say is that the overlay snap in the back comes undone all the time but that could be because I went a size smaller than I normally wear. My favorite thing about this bra, besides the great support, is that the band is snug but it still has enough stretch to not cause heartburn or pain across your sternum, or difficulty breathing. These are problems I had with the Shock Absorber.
Anyway, I've have trouble finding a bra with no bounce, and I will be sticking with this one from now on.
I have not read any of the other reviews so I will just give you my experience. I tried bras that did not have an opening because they are cheaper and I'm used to them. The only way they are tight enough to give me good support is if they are too tight to get both my arms through without dislocating my shoulder. Trust me, buy a bra that opens and closes! AND one that has adjustable straps like this one.
Front or Back opening? Doesn't matter. I THOUGHT wanted front opening because it hurt my shoulder to reach around behind me to close the back opening style. But it was harder to close the front opening because they had more hooks so I discovered it was very simple to close the rear opening by doing it in front and then just turning the bra around and putting my arms under the straps.
The front opening was so difficult to close for ME because I wanted this bra as tight as possible. I intend to become smaller and I'm budget minded. I want this bra to last a long time and by squeezing into the smallest one possible, it will continue to support me longer as I lose weight and inches.
This bra is labeled "Great for Full Figures C-DD) and I wasn't sure it would be good for me because I consider myself a 34C at this weight and when I lose a few pounds my breasts will be even smaller.Read more ›
