Not for heavy breasts
on May 31, 2014
The tag on this bra says, "perfect for DD," so I had high hopes that I'd finally found a great t-shirt bra that didn't increase my bust size to the point I looked like I was carrying two watermelons. I am tall, lean, broad-shouldered and wear a 34DD. (no implants - they're real) I have a terrible time finding good bras designed for an athletic build with a smaller band size but a natural DD cup size.
Regrettably, I was disappointed with this bra. I like the look and feel of it, but the thin elastic straps do not provide much lift - or bounce control. I jiggled so much when I walked that I felt like Jessica Rabbit!
The super comfy...but way too stretchy band only has a 2-hook closure and doesn't provide enough support, either. Most women learn that once they increase beyond a C or D cup and get beyond their 30s, it's generally best to go with non-stretch straps and band - and always look for a band with a 3-hook closure.
This is a great bra, but not for someone who has heavy breasts and needs strap lift in addition to the pad lift in the bottom of the cup. This bra is more suitable for an A through C or D cup -- definitely not for a DD. (Unless the DD is below age 35.)
