Very comfy and larger than expected,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hanes Women's Comfort-Blend Flex Fit Pullover Bra 2 Pack (Apparel)
First, disclosure: I'm a 42D. I wasn't sure if these would fit so ordered 2X. The sizing info for them here on Amazon is useless so I was guessing, knowing that I'm top heavy. The sizing tag in the bag with the bras was much more helpful. For your info: SM: 34A, 36A & 34B; Med: 34C, 34D, 36B, and 36C. Large: 36D, 38B, 38C, 38D, and 40B; XL: 40C, 40D, 42B, and 42C (I think it will stretch to 42D); 2X 44B, 44C, 46B and 46C. The 2X bras I received are plenty big for my 42D chest. In fact, I'm concerned that if they stretch out, they will be too big. I have just ordered another pair a size smaller, XL. (Just got in the XL. They fit fine. Not really much difference in size from the 2X, but a little more support.)
The fabric is soft and comfortable. I like the cut better than racer-back sports bras I've worn in the past. The straps are far enough off my neck and the back is low enough to wear a knit top that is not right at my neck with a T-shirt fit. In the past with racer-back bras, I've had problems with the straps or back showing if I wore a simple knit top which had modest scoop neck, for example, just enough for a short necklace at my neck.
On the con side, there is really not very much support. I'm not going to be doing any jogging in these - or even bouncing for any reason! But, they give enough support that my post-menopausal boobs are back where they belong instead of drooping toward my waist!
I don't know how well these will hold up, but at this price they are worth the money. Only reason for 4 star instead of 5 is the lack of support.

Thank you so much for including the sizing info. Like you said, the sizing info listed here is pretty much useless.

The sizing info you gave helps me so much now. I am having wrist surgery soon and will be in cast past elbow and will not be able to turn/use hand. I have to figure out how I will be able to put a bra on so I figured I would try one without a clasp. This sounds like this will do for that. Thanks again.

I agree with all the comments already posted. I had no idea what size to order. I followed the sizing instructions but they don't tell you what a, say, 34B equates to in terms of S, M, etc. Your review was so helpful! Thanks for taking the time to write it.
