Ruining a Good Thing,
This review is from: Bali Women's Satin Tracings Minimizer Underwire Bra #3562 (Apparel)
I've worn this bra for 20 years. No more!! Bali has shortened the straps on this bra and eliminated their adjustment feature, making the bra miserable to wear. (Was this done to save fabric costs? Or did they send me the super petite model? I'm 5'6" tall.) It digs into my armpits and tries to pull up to my neck because the straps are too short. Also, the underwires at the front of the cups poke out in front because they're too high. They should be cut down at the center by at least 2 inches, about mid breast level. From under my clothes it looks like a 3rd bump poking out. This is the end of my brand loyalty. I'm looking for a new bra and a new maker.

I am 5'3" so it is fine on me, but I did notice it fits me with the straps adjusted all the way out, which is unusual. I love this bra, but if I were too much taller I might understand how it could be a problem.

As suggested I went to my local Kohl's store to see these bras in person. Glad I did take the time & look at these bras. Gone is the soft slinky fabric feeling so comfortable, now these bras are produced with a thicker woven type material that is rough on side to the skin. Why make a bra, intimate apparel item, that has rough fabric towards the skin, sensitive nipples? Also I'm concerned about the shortening of the straps, eliminating the ability to adjust this bra to comfortable fit. I always had to adjust the former version of this bra to longest length for my big breasts. Now I can adjust the fit! And there is a problem with the underwires as well. Thanks again for warning me away from this new version bra. I'm going to look at another company, other bras to help with comfort.
