I love this bra. As a 36/38DD-er, it was the first time I found a bra that was supportive, comfortable, and minimizing all at once. You could see the seam of the edge of the bra through my shirt sometimes, but it never bothered me. The straps are not adjustable, but they're at just the right length. I don't have to worry about those adjusters digging into my skin. Originally intended as a sports bra, this became my everyday bra. My breasts looked great in this bra - perky and round. The more I wore this bra, the softer it would get. It took a long time for these bras to finally stretch out. Even at a cup size smaller, I still keep my soft, old bras around for wear around the house.
Then I lost weight and my breasts became smaller. Not wanting to fix was wasn't broken, I went ahead and bought this bra in 36D. Supportive, comfortable, and minimizing, just like last time. Except for... pointy cups? Yes, it's true. My perfectly round breasts were no longer perfectly round, but pointy! Not pointy like bras from the 1940s, but just enough to put me off. I was sad, my trusted wonderful bra that I loved was making me pointy. But I wouldn't give up. I wore that bra anyway! After about a week, and much to my content, the cup of the bra conformed to the shape of my breasts. No more pointy-ness, just lovely roundness.
The moral of the story - if you bought this bra in a D cup or smaller and experienced the pointy effect, don't give up. Keep wearing it and it will conform it's shape to you. It will become a great bra, but you must let it.
Let me address some concerns raised by some of the other reviewers. One said that the size received was smaller than expected. I find the size I ordered (38C) to be exactly as expected. Perhaps the problem was only with the larger sizes. Some reviewers say there is a "pointy" effect at first that goes away as the bra is worn and washed a few times. Others said the underwire sticks out somehow. I did not have these problems at all with mine, but again, maybe these issues come up in the larger sizes only. I'd say that if your usual sports bra size is 38C, you'll probably be happy with this bra.
(Several weeks later) Just one addition - I have since then ordered it in beige (good color if you have light skin) and heather grey. The grey ones have white tabs at the back where the hooks are, even on the outside. I don't see why they make them like this, and it should say something about it in the product description. I'll keep them, though, as I plan to wear them anyway with things that won't show through. Still five stars. Finally, a sporty looking, comfortable cotton bra with a band that won't roll up!
(One more later note) If the underwire bothers you a bit under the arms, you can sort of force the wire toward the middle of the bra just one inch and then put in a few stitches to hold it there. The way the wire is set into the outside of the bra makes this very easy to do. This won't affect the fit and it won't poke you anymore. Your bra might not bother you this way, but I'm very sensitive and I've adjusted all my bras this way now. Lily of France, please don't ever stop making this bra! (And more colors, please!)
(Yet another later note) I know, I've had a lot to say about this bra. But I've bought a whole bunch of them and will probably buy more, just in case they ever stop making them. It's that good. Because the outside seam that holds the wire looks so supportive, and because I much prefer a bra without underwire, I kept wondering what would happen if I simply removed the wire. So I tried it. Works for me - now it's perfect! I just made a small slit in the underside of the seam at the underarm and forced the wire out, then sewing up the hole. I would say that if you're bigger than I am, you'd probably need the wire. But if you're not and find the wire annoying, give it a try.
I bought 2 but I noticed I stopped wearing all of my other bras (sports and regular) so I bought 2 more. I think my bra searching days are finally OVER! Thanks goodness because these are perfect for what I need.
-There are three hooks and three hook settings.
-The straps are NOT adjustable
