Thanks to Amazon's great return program I took a big desperate gamble and got a lilyette minimized strapless bra. I think it's staying up pretty well. It started raining on our dinning table outside and we ran out to move it under the deck and it stayed in place. Of course stayed in place is a good finger's width under my imf and the gores float. Though doesn't float as badly as it looks. I think the hidden underwires make it look considerably more misshaped than it truly is. I think pinching the bottom of the gore together might solve that. The ...bra is also 2-3 fingers' width too wide but it wasn't bothering me. I think because it's not padded in any way it actually makes those fitting issues less uncomfortable and less noticeable to me the wearer as well. This might be the best strapless option for me I've tried. The band can't loosen up anymore or I'll lose the bra but that can be altered. I sister sized up two bands but it's the smallest one they carry. Sorry for the poor picture quality. If I decide to keep it I'll update them. It's the most minimizing strapless I've ever tried and I love minimizing! Read more 112 more words
Best underwire I've purchased so far. I bought a different size than my true size due to the fit and inability to find anything closer at the store where I purchased. As I have done with most of my bras, I bent the underwires to that they more closely follow the indentation of my sternum. This has helped with the fit immensely. The fabric is very soft and the thick strap is quite supportive. It is described as a minimizer, but I feel it gives better support than any other strapless bra I've tried, especially the padded for lift style. I do find that the band tends to show with some of my dresses, particularly under the arm, but I think it has more to do with how high I wear it to get the wire sitting at the root of my breasts. Would certainly buy again. Think it will stand the test of time.
