I really like the way this bra feels; very comfortable. It is a pushup bra with removable cutlets, so it makes my appearance a little more busty than I'm comfortable with. I wore it for the first time today under a winter coat and really liked it. I think I'm just a little too self-conscious.
The bra feels nice and snug. I bought it at a thrift store, but it looked new, with all the paint still remaining on the hooks. It has stretched out a little during the day, but still feels very supportive.
This is the first convertible bra I've owned, ... and one thing about the straps I like is; when I installed them on the bra (they came detached) I could install them so the buckles are at the front of the bra, above the cups.
One thing I've always wondered about most conventional bras is; the buckles for adjusting strap length are usually at the back of the bra over the shoulder blades. How in the heck are you supposed to be able to reach the buckle while you are wearing the bra so you can adjust the strap to the correct length?? I, at least, always have to slide the straps off my shoulders, adjust the length, slide them back on and check the length, repeating the process until they fit, in a trial-and-error process. With the buckles in front, I can easily reach them and adjust them without taking my bra half off.
Also, these back-set buckles are almost always noticeable under thinner layers of clothing, sticking out like pimples on my back under my shirt. The front-set buckles are usually not noticeable, resting in the void between the top of my shoulder and the outermost part of my bra's cups. What's the deal??
