This is indeed a "fabulous" spacer bra. I was specifically looking for a lightweight, relatively comfortable bra I could use when working around the house and this one fits the bill. Originally I thought I would go wire-free, but wire free bras cause me to get achiness around my boobs after several hours' wear because of the compression and lack of support.

I'd been eyeing this bra for a few months and I'm glad I gave it a try. I am right between cup sizes, as usual, so there is a bit of space in the tops of the cups. That is common for me with contour cups, but it is not noticeable and doesn't seem to affect the support. Were I to go down a cup size that top edge would definitely cut into me. Interestingly, you can see this "bubble" of space on most of the model photos so this may just be the shape of this bra.

The molded spacer fabric is very soft, thin, and light -- not at all like regular molded contour cups, which can sometimes feel like cardboard. These cups are stretchy and so they don't provide firm support like my seamed bras -- nor did I expect them to do so. Again, since this is an "at home" bra for me, this wasn't an issue but it may be for others.

The band is just firm enough; I anticipate moving in to the middle hook within a few months. It has a lot of give in it, and I was very surprised that it stretched to only 28.5 inches because I've had other bras that measure 28.5-29" that are almost painful to wear; obviously they must be much firmer fabric.

This bra overall seems like it will wear faster than some others, namely my Cleo ones, which again is okay for what it is. On the whole I'm happy with this purchase and I will probably order this again.

UPDATE:
I never wear this bra because the underside of the straps is very scratchy. They are finished in such an odd way... instead of being either 1) conventional strapping elastic or 2) fabric covered straps, the front straps are strips of trimming that are bound on the underside and then stitched along their length (see photo). It feels okay at first but within an hour or two I have to take the bra off because that stitching is painful on my shoulders. I won't order this again.

  • What color did you get it in? I am thinking about getting the bra in Naturally Nude/Ivory cause I'm looking for a cream colored bra.
