Good quality for the price.,
This is probably one of the best bras I've owned. I like the wider straps. They don't dig into my shoulders. The material is smooth enough to wear under most clothes if you don't wear anything that's too tight. My only complaint, and I have this problem with most bras, is that I don't think they can get by calling it an "18-hour" bra. Every bra I wear, and I've experimented with different sizes, seems to eventually ride up in the back and sag in the front. It's like I either have to wear more than one or change half way through the day. For the price though, it is good.

This review is old, but for anyone else that experiences this problem -- if the band rides up in the back, you're wearing the wrong size bra and should measure or get fitted again. The band needs to be snug enough to stay put to carry the weight of your breasts.

Cindy, that may be true in some cases. But if you have extremely heavy breasts (as I do), you would know that *any* bra will eventually ride up in the back. I have paid upwards of $60 for bras that were "custom fitted" and they still did this. I just bought my first 18 hour bra and so far it has carried the load, but as it gets older, we will see what happens.

I'm a 40E in some bra styles. You could be wearing your band size too big, wearing a bra that's past it's expiration date so the lycra/spandex isn't firm anymore, or it could be a combination of needing a new size AND a new style. Heavy breasted women shouldn't assume because a bra comes in their size it will support them properly. Size isn't the only factor. I've been trying to figure out some solutions to bra problems I am having and I found a helpful website about finging your right size, style and even a problem/solution chart: http://www.herroom.com/bra-fitting-advice
Hope that helps!

Honestly, the only bra that I have ever worn that did not sag over time and lasted me over a year were the Balconette Bras by Lane Bryant -- I have a problem with the straps falling off my shoulders with those so I've had to purchase bra strap holders, but as for support and comfort (I wear a 42DD) the Balconettes are the best.
