The band of this bra is undeniably too big, and the cups are undeniably too small. Even still, the straps are INCREDIBLY soft and stretchy, as is the whole bra. It’s so comfy, and feels a bit like a cloud. I think I’m going to get another with bigger cups, band size be damned, and alter it to the correct band size. As for right now, it’s my current go-to bra under tight tops, since it provides the perfect amount of nipple coverage, lies invisible and flat under shirts, and is flexible and supportive enough to keep up with me and all my activities, no matter what way I bend or move.
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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />
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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />
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.... https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
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 150 more words
TAG SAYS: Simply Perfect by Warner's (4020) but matches listed line/style # from Warner's website. Contour style t-shirt bra with padding around wire that is my holy grail of bras except that it is (as I now know) very much the wrong size. It's made of smooth fabric that does not cling to clothing, cups show no lines under clothes, it's super comfortable and goes with everything I own. I am on (seemingly) endless quest to find as close to an identical replacement as possible in my proper size. Sigh.
While this doesn't fit great, it's an improvement over the 32C I was wearing. The top of the cups fit ok, not too tall. The bottom isn't projected enough, so it continually slips down. It's very soft. I get a little bit of a smushed sports bra look. I was trying to find something in stores and this fits pretty well and was $6.
Much like my other Warner’s bra in the same size, this bra feels much too padded, and much too shaped in the cups. It feels like putting my boobs into triangular holsters pointing diagonally away from my body in opposing directions, so everything feels much too separate for my boobs. Cups fit overall, but I feels like I have a wall of padding attached to my body and I don’t at all like it. Again, the cups are too tall and cutting into my underarms. The band fits, but feels too loose, I would definitely prefer it tighter. The multiway straps adjust long enough, but are difficult to clasp and unclasp again, using an odd clasp that feels like the sort of snap you’d find on a pair of pants, but worse.
Soft and plush, but VERY padded and VERY shaped cups. Feels like much too much. Feels like it forces me to be more East-West than I’d like, and like my boobs are made into a pointy shape pointing away from each other. Everything is soft, but the bra does come a little too high and cut into my underarms, though this might be remedied if the cups were closer together. Band feels loose, but does not ride up.
I may be biased since it was the wrong size to begin with, but this bra was not a good experience. It stretched out almost immediately and became almost unwearable due to the looseness. To its credit, it’s very soft and comfortable. I’d recommend to someone if it’s the right size, but maybe get a band size smaller than usual because it will stretch a lot.
I love how the band fits/feels, and that the wires aren't so long or tall that they cause issues in my underarms. The cup feels like it fits my shape well, there's no extra space inside the cup or at the bottom.
Bought while I was pregnant and looking for a comfy post partum bra. Only wore a few times as the band was to big (didn't gain as much weight as I anticipated/went to other areas.) Very soft. Very comfy. Didn't itch or rub or chafe. Can't really speak to it being supportive as I didn't fill out cups & band was too loose. No wire = comfy to sleep in
I wore this bra for ten years and loved it. It is very round, very durable, very comfortable, gives great support and yet feels light. It has an elastic top cup, wide, scalloped straps, and a nylon/spandex back frame. The straps are only half adjustable, but are very narrow set - like a full cup. The wires are firm and U shaped. Lots of immediate projection and room for centre fullness. Probably better for Fob/short roots because of the elastic edge of the top cup. If Warner's made non-matrix sizes, I would never have looked for a new bra style.
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.
