In summary, this bra works perfectly for me. It provides great support with no weight on my shoulder muscles. I feel confidence in my bust appearance under clothing when wearing this bra because it puts everything in the right spot and has a smooth surface. This is the bra I put on when I want to look nice.
Straps: The straps are wide set sitting on the bone of the shoulder; this prevents any muscle irritation. The straps are a whopping 1.5" which nicely cups the bone and keeps the straps in place. Because the bra has such excellent support from the torso, the straps have almost no weight ...on the shoulders at all.
Band and Underwire: It sits well staying just below the breast fold. The firmness of the band and underwire is barely noticeable, yet it provides almost the entirety of the support of the breasts. If you slouch, though, you will start to feel the underwire digging into your rib cage. This is a bra best for when you *won't* be slouched on a couch watching TV.
Support: Excellent. This bra lifts all the breast tissue into place with no sagging.
Comfort: Very comfortable. I barely know it's there.
I have a very difficult time with bras because any weight on my neck causes pain, and lack of support causes pain. This bra fits just right on my overly sensitive body, so it will likely feel great for the average healthy person. Read more 132 more words
Super comfortable Thirdlove bra for all-day wear for fuller-chested women due to the thicker and soft straps! Full coverage prevents spillage and appears more seamless under shirts. Bought to wear to work before my reduction and if this was still my size I would wear it everyday! Check it out online at: https://www.thirdlove.com/products/24-7-perfect-coverage-bra-11
This bra was comfortable enough at first. I used ThirdLove's "try before you buy" feature, and I did keep it at the end of the 30 days. The underwires are rather high at armpits. At first this wasn't too much of an issue. Just after 2 months from purchase, however, the underwire started poking out at the armpits (on both sides!). Return was no longer an option because I was outside the 30 day period. I was very disappointed -- I've never had an underwire do that so quickly! I was taking good care of this bra because I thought it would last a long time, but nope. IMO, durability of these bras is a definite concern. For as much as they charge, you should be able to wear it for more than 2 months without the underwire poking out.
One good point of this bra is that the straps are fairly wide and comfortable.
