This is my third Play It Cool Wire-free Bra. These are the admirable characteristics: 1. Exceptionally comfortable. 2. Convertible straps. 3. Straps adjust and disconnect/reconnect in FRONT. 4. Sufficient nipple armor and modesty. 5. Beautifully rounded under thin knits. 6. Not ideal for close-set, center-full breasts but effortlessly adjusts to such breasts without a fight. 7. Pain-free, wire-free 8. I forget I'm wearing a bra. 9. Less coverage than many wireless options which is helpful for summer attire.
I must shorten the band a few inches for support. Without a shorter band, I receive zero support. Easily remedied problem
After trying 4 different Freya Deco Soft cup bras, I purchased this $14 Warner's. Freya's cups are taller, the materials stiffer, the padding thicker, and price 4x. However, the shape under a t-shirt is very similar. The Deco makes my breasts look taller and does not hide easily under my scoop neck knits. Warner's shorter cup is compatible with every shirt I own. I'm grateful.
This Warner claims to "not create cleavage." Giggle. They failed. It definitely produces cleavage if you have center-full breasts. You have been duly warned
This band will stretch to 36"+. However, the cup width distorts ...at 34". I will stiffen this band with some stiches and non-stretch ribbon to provide some support. Off the rack, the band is super soft and super stretchy. This is comfortable....and unsupportive. Easily remedied.
The cup accommodates those of us who prefer modesty. And, all of the fabrics are microfiber soft. I cringe as I type this because I know how microfibers effect our ecosystem. This I will hand wash to reduce the microparticle sluffing. A Decent Exposures Cotton bra is in my radar....
Overall, the shape under a t-shirt and the comfort of the materials endeared me. I didn't care to own a Deco soft cup, but I will enjoy this Warner's Play It Cool Wire-free. If you are willing to alter the band and have wide roots, this bra is a great soft cup for wearing under fitted t-shirts. Read more 144 more words
This bra is very comfortable. However, the band is quite stretchy. Heavy breasts won't feel much support. The fabrics are delightfully soft and the straps remind me of grosgrain ribbons. They are both stretchy and supportive. The straps connect via what looks like a snap. And, the straps disconnect and reconnect easily to cross in the back. It is novel and comfortable.
This bra, because of its low cup line near the center, is not ideal for center full busts. The cups cut across the top, near the center. However, after trying Freya's Deco, I prefer this bra. I would sew stiches through parts of the elastic band to improve rigidity and band support. The materials are far more comfortable than Freya's wireless Deco. However, Freya's wireless Deco is a better choice for taller roots. This Warner is suitable for shorter roots.
Despite these issues, the bra is exceedingly easy to wear and comfortable.
