I used to think this was my favorite bra, that is until I've done some research into my actual bra size and not what is perceived to fit me. But it is very comfortable and soft. I've never noticed anything painful on it or inherently uncomfortable on it.
The good: Comfortable smooth material, and the straps are not very wide set. They hit the top of the cup close to the center of each cup, which provides a little more stability (in my opinion) than bras with wide-set straps. It has a molded cup, which prevents any possible nipple poke-through and keeps me from looking too pointy (nice round shape) - that's tough to find in large bras. I'm a 38G, and this 38DDD provides good (but not excellent) support - the only issue is that the center gore doesn't quite tack properly. So I'd say the cups run a bit big compared to other brands (or even other Playtex bras).
The bad: The band stretches out quickly (I've had several of this same bra and they all did), and the underwire itself is about 1/2" too short for its channel, so it tends to slide back and forth within the channel. When it ends up too far toward the underarm side, it pokes my arm, as the bra comes up quite high in the underarm.
The bra is very full coverage. The cups cut quite high up the chest so you have to be careful with your shirt's neckline, and so this bra is for folks with boobs that are full all over/rounded and not just wide at the base. Overall it's very comfortable, no seams that poke, the fabric is sturdy and hasn't stretched out. The cups are quite thick, there's a layer of some thicker fabric encased in the black sateen.
(this is the first bra i've bought that wasn't majorly too small in the cups!)
