These are awesome! So comfy and with the second layer of fabric in the front to provide a little modesty. I usually wear a 44 but that was pretty snug even pre-washing. Not breathlessly so, and the compression sort of allows you to adjust the girls into a semblance of lifted. If you're in a certain age bracket, you know what I mean. So I ordered more in 48 and post washing they are fantastic-- as comfortable as a bra can be that keeps the bounce and jiggle to a decent minimum and still give you enough compression to get the girls in about the right location and keep them there.
Ignore the fact that I'm shaped like a busted can of biscuits, but these bras fit great and I will order them again! Very comfy and simple, they don't cut into my back rolls, or roll up like the old style did. I recommend not drying them on the dryer as it eats away at the elasticity and flexibility these have.
I bought these to try out because I cannot wear regular hook bras anymore. My shoulders are "frozen" meaning i can't move my arms back far enough to put on or take off a standard bra. I bought these in a slightly bigger size than I needed because I also have fibromyalgia and the pain of things pressing in spots can be very intense sometimes. Let me tell you, these bras are an absolute blessing. They support me but do not create uncomfortable pressure points anywhere, and I can easily put them on and take them off. I highly recommend these to anyone who has pain and needs a bra that doesn't irritate you in any way.
�The support isn't perfect but, I did buy bigger than I needed intentionally, so I can't speak to how the support would be with a proper fit, but it gives me enough support that I don't have to feel awkward when I'm in public because I couldn't put on a bra and my boobs are trying to touch my knees.
Pressure on my back causes pain and discomfort. I've tried many bras and this brand we're the largest band size I have found. I had been wearing camisoles in place of a bra but I always felt awkward as my chest would sweat with no support and I work in a very professional setting. I am pleased with the fit and expect to purchase more in the near future.
These are the comfiest lounge bras I've found. I do wear them for light work outs but they aren't the best for vigorous activity if you like a ton of support. They survive the elliptical just fine though. They're honestly my daily bra because underwire is the devils invention.
Lord knows I don't need a sports bra for running or biking. But as a retired person of considerable size, I just discovered these bras and that they are perfect for wearing at home. They are comfortable, cool (cotton). They fabric is double in front so there's no show through. And there's enough support that I can walk down to the corner store in one of these and a T shirt and not feel "nekkid" or "bouncy" .
