  1. Enbliss Racerback Bralette (570253098)

    Please note, it says there is 1 hook on the measurements. Only because 0 wasn’t an option. There are no hooks or clasps on this pull over bralette.

    Please ignore my terrible sun burn in the pics haha.

    I purchased this to wear under some tank tops as well as sleep in. It’s buttery smooth! According to Soma’s website I should have gone with an XS. That was tiny. As in fit my teenager tiny. I tried a small on and the front of it wasn’t wide enough to cover the sides of my boobs. The spacing of the straps is just right to be comfortable, with the ... front of the straps being made of the same soft fabric and the back having adjustable elastic. This is a pull on and pull off style. It’s not too difficult to get in and out of. There are thin round foam inserts in the cup you can easily remove. It gives me a slight droopy fit with some quad-boob, but honestly when you’re going for straight up comfort, it’s not anything you’d mind.
    All pics taken with the foam inserts in.

      Look good to me to, I spend most of my time in something like that. What's wrong with comfort!?

  2. Embraceable Full Coverage Wireless Unlined Bra (570148820)

    38DDD

    Fits

    The short and sweet version: sooofffft, very comfortable,very good support for a wire free bra. Brings boobs front and center. Follow the size chart on the Soma website page for this bra: https://www.soma.com/store/product/embraceable-full-coverage-wireless-unlined-bra/570148820?color=345&catId=cat40089&fromSearch=true&scPos=1-3701-3572#bra_size_chart and you will not go wrong.Only cons are straps do not adjust short enough for those who are high-set or have a short torso, and the wide elastic at bottom tends to flip up.

    First off, this bra is soft, soft, soft. So comfy! The fiber content is 81% nylon 19% spandex but it feels like cotton. The cups are seam-free. It's also tagless! Nothing to rub or itch. Straps are ... fairly wide and not stretchy except for the adjustable portion in the back.

    This is a wire free bra that I could wear to sleep in but also would not hesitate to wear outside of the house. The cups are moulded single layer fabric with side slings that extend from the straps to the band. They provide uplift that's surprising in a wire free bra and the side support is superb. I am getting no side boob at all wearing this. The band feels firm and supportive with 4 hooks in this size.

    This bra is available in sizes 32D-44G US sizing. Small band women, don't dismiss this one yet. Soma uses +5 band sizing in their size chart and the cups are fairly generous in this brand. My best current size is 34G UK and in this brand 36G is very firm fit. In this bra the 36G felt a little tight and cut into my armpits so I sister-sized up. Finding my measurements on the Soma sizing chart, it puts me in a 38DDD, so I would say for a comfortable fit follow the chart. A 27" underbust would take a 32 band, 29" a 34 band, etc.

    It's currently offered in 4 colors. I preferred the Vintage Pink to the Soft Tan colorway as it's closer to a nude for my very pale skin. The other colors are Black and Mochaccino which is more of a taupe than a true brown. Maybe they'll come out with a brown in the future.

    I did notice that there is very little space in the straps for adjustment. I was able to get the adjusters over the seam attaching the elastic part of the straps to the strap fronts but I would not want to push them too much farther forward. My breasts are not set particularly high on my chest so for those of you who have short torsos or are high set this one may not work for you.

    I found just one other minor problem with this bra, and that is that the wide elastic tends to flip up on itself. It doesn't bind uncomfortably when it does this though.

    At $44 USD, this bra delivers comfort and support at a moderate price. It's available online and in Soma stores across the USA. You can frequently find it on sale if you are willing to buy more than one. Right now the website is offering these at 2 for $59. If you are in the market for wire free give this one a try.

      This looks like a bra I would like, too. Support, wireless, and soft: what's not to love? Thank you for sharing!

      I keep looking at the side view photo. Side support looks *really* good, which is something I always have to consider. You cannot see the slings from side view, but in the 7th image, yes, you can see them.

      ALSO: Thanks for mentioning the +5 factor.

      Finally found one of these for $15. Holy Smokers--this is amazing! The 32 band provides great support and there IS space for center full tissue. Woo! Hoo! Thank you for writing this review, finallygotboobs !! :-D

    • Love4Pollinators yay! I'm so glad you found something comfortable and supportive. 15 bux is an awesome deal too!

    This bra is super comfortable with a soft material. The underwire is't harsh. The lace on the front is gorgeous and adds a sexy touch to it. Only getting rid of it because I need to clear out my bra drawer; I have way too many bras that I don't wear and I personally prefer wireless!

    34D

    My shape as I understand it: splayed, even fullness, average projection, slightly pendulous, low on chest.

    The material of this bra is nice. It's really smooth on the outside, with a soft, sueded feel on the inside. The straps adjust FROM THE FRONT, which I love. I honestly don't understand why all bras don't - it makes adjustments so much easier. I got the Porcelain color, which is a light pink with rose gold colored hardware. I wouldn't call it padded, but the cups are thick enough to minimize headlights, which I like. The finishing details are okay - there's a few loose threads here ... and there and the end of the wire channel that goes under the arms has a scratchy seam.

    Fit wise, it was kind of a mess. I bought it in an attempt to find something to smooth out my back rolls - which it kind of does, I guess... really, it just pushes them up so they squish out the top, which wasn't that much of an improvement. I could not get the straps right. If I loosened them enough that they didn't cut into my shoulders, I ended up with space in the top of the cups. The cup cut into my larger breast and my smaller one had a slight gap. Neither side filled out the bottom of the cups. The back band is just one big piece of material. It feels like it would stretch out fairly quickly and not being able to adjust it would become a problem. Length wise, the band seemed fine. Not too tight or too loose, although I'm starting to lose confidence in my ability to judge fit, so who knows. The larger distance between the cups didn't bother me. The metal clasp on the gore was a bit uncomfortable on my sternum, though.

    I haven't owned a front-close bra for quite some time - I used to love them but I don't think the style works for me anymore. Appearance wise, I didn't like it. I felt like a dowdy old lady wearing it. I think I'm better off dealing with my back fat and sticking to prettier styles with adjustable bands.

    This is my all time favorite bra & an exceptionally pretty minimizer that miraculously worked without a weird, squashed shape, crazy cleavage or boob-pits. Soma inexplicably discontinued the bra in 2013 & as of this writing (May '16) have no plans to bring the minimizer back (the non-minimizer Sensuous lace remains). I wish I had properly measured this bra before it was worn to bits, but alas I didn't. If you have a well kept one I would appreciate the measurements to hunt down a comparable item or if you are one of the many fans of the Soma Sensuous lace 3" minimizer and found something similar please pass it forward and I will do the same.

    While this bra is just too small on me, I do want to say the straps are rather thin for this size. But I do love how the gore tacks.

    Center full, close set, immediately projected, very short-waisted, somewhat narrow breasts....

    My breasts are free from seam abrasion. This is one comfortable bra! It provides just enough support for most of my exercise habits. However, many cardio activities demand more support than this simple bra can give. The design holds breasts close to the chest and I feel comfortably supported. For my breast characteristics, this model provides significantly more support and security than the Soma Strappy Back Yoga Bra (http://bra.pe/MHLb/ )

    The cups are two layers Nylon/Polyester/Elastane. Although prominent nipples will protrude, the marled fabric provides a bit of modesty. For those with sensitive nipples, the two layers reduce abrasion and and dampens sensation by 50%.

    The band is too big, but I'll add a couple darts and hope I can still easily pull it over my shoulders.

    This is a soft, comfortable bra, but the band is too big to lift breast tissue on my 28" underbust. So, it smooshes them close to my chest.

    Having previously owned size medium, I was surprised and delighted to find the large had a wider, "wide" band. The band on this bra is so comfortable and distributes weight effortlessly.

    The gore allows space for center-fullness. Overwhelmingly, this is a characteristic most wireless bras lack. Soma has hit this one "out of the ballpark"...if you wear matrix sizes.

    My 30G shorties didn't fit comfortably in size medium, but are very comfortable in size large. I will shorten the band and hope for a bit of lift to add to the smoosh. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />

    Seriously comfortable, easily removed (in summer sweat), wireless bra.

    Gorgeous bra!!!! It is by far the softest bra I have ever worn!!! Sadly the cups are too wide for my narrow breast and it cut right into my armpit and kills me!!! So if you have narrow breast I would deff not recomend but other than that it is an awesome bra! I have only worn it a couple of times because of the whole wire killing me problem I could usually only bear it for a couple of hours.

    I got this bra from another user for my grandmother, but her breasts did not fill the top of the cups very well, as they are very very bottom heavy due to her age. The bra itself is very soft on the inside, and it has very high side wings. The most unique thing that I see with this bra is that the side wings are padded just like the cups are, giving extra comfort to the sides.

  11. Sensuous Sides Full Coverage Bra (570049747)

    This works really well for rounding out curves to create a smoother silhouette. It's lined, not padded, but the "Sensuous Side" wings (that actually do work at reducing the appearance of or encapsulating extra fatty tissue on the side) give added lift and a nice round shape. I love the material. Because of the added structure in the wings and their increased width, the band does not stretch as much as other Soma bras I have, but it still fits fairly true to size, just a little more snugly.

    This is a full coverage bra, which I normally don't like, but the cups actually go back far enough and the sides are high enough to actually contain my underarm side-boob. The band runs small, and the 32 feels snug for my 30" underbust.

    I had 2 of these, and I donated them back to one of Soma's bra drives before I wrote down any impressions; so this is mainly from memory (but the measurements I provided were taken while I still had the bra in my possession). I love the fabrics used on the bras from Vanishing Back collection. I know blending nylon and spandex isn't an original recipe, but there's something about this collection that just feels extra fabulous. The fabric is also stretchy, so it's forgiving, but also, well, it stretches and with only one setting of the front-close style its lifespan is shortened. The design really does significantly reduce the appearance of lines visible under clothing in the back, but in order to achieve this, there is an awful lot of material in the back; but, again, because of the fabric, the excess never feels hot or constrictive.

    I'm just learning about the vast world of bra knowledge (at the age of 41- we have truly been failed in bra education!) so I purchased this pre-owned just to test the new size ABTF recommended as a starting point. It fit great (the best anything ever has, ha.) and gave me an idea where to go from there- still learning and experimenting. This bra works wonderfully as a minimizer, offered me a great deal of support, and does not squash my breast. It has lace and the lines show too much to use under a thin tee, but it works under a thick tee, many blouses and patterned designs with minimal lines showing. I belive it may be discontinued.

    It fits okay. The cups are moulded so it looks fine but I don't totally fill the cups out at the top and band is really loose. This is bra I've owned for over a year but wanted to be able to compare to others on bratabase so I added it.

    It’s my first underwire bra in which I’m actually comfortable. I could probably even take a nap in it. I measure as a 34DD and have even fullness. The 36C fits me well. But I have to wear it in the middle/last hooks for a good fit.

    Since my breasts are wide-set, the wires poke painfully into my sternum and sides. When I scoop and swoop, breast tissue overflows from the top, but as my breasts move over the course of the day, the top of the bra ends up under-filled, leaving obvious indentations underneath my top.
