My Favorite BraI absolutely love this bra. It's a great value for the money, supports my 36G/H frame very well and is really comfortable. I own about a dozen of these, having stocked up when they were on sale. I like the 3 rows of hooks (easier to work with) and have had no problem with they wires poking through; I wash them with my other whites and hang to dry. Also, I love the cut of the straps in back - they don't fall down and I can even wear it when I play golf with sleeveless shirts (I live in Florida). I am 61 years old and not a heavy person, just in the chest. I have been searching for the "right" bra forever, and I think I have finally found it. .

I love this bra - always come back to it!I truly love this bra - have worn it for years - I am a 34DDD and it is the only bra I have found that consistently offers support, shaping and longetivity. I have tried some sexier bras from other makers, and they just don't hold up like this one does. I order it in all colors. Would be really devastated if they ever discontinue -- it's a great bra for the busty gal. No bounce, minimizes, and it's comfortable. My only wish would be if the cups prevented "headlights" but I bought some silicone inserts to use if wearing a top that might reveal too much and that works fine. A great product and One Hanes Place always has it at a great price!

My first Bali minimizerThis is my first Bali minimizer. It fits true to cup size, with comfy shoulder straps that don't dig in (I'm 40DDD). However, the underwire is just plain weird. It juts out where the ribbon is. It's not the ribbon that causes this, but the underwire itself! If I remove the ribbon, it would make no difference. At least it doesn't mash my girls together, which is important to me! I wear this to work only, under a turtleneck and shirt. I would NOT wear this during summer under a t-shirt, because the "jutting out" where the ribbon is doesn't look flattering. The cups also have a more "pointy" look. Not exactly bullet, but definitely not rounded like I prefer!

Very unhappy with this bra!I have purchased this bra maybe 25 times in the past and it has always been my favorite. Recently I ordered 4 more and I have no idea how or why they changed but the center seam on the cup has some extra material or SOMETHING along the seam that creates a weird bump, almost like an extra nipple. I was so dissappointed and because I have worn this bra for years I had already taken off all the tags and felt like I couldn't then return them. What they changed I cannot exactly pinpoint but I will not be getting it again. The pink and blue color fit differently then the black tan and white. Go figure!!!

I would like to see some stuffing for lack of a better word along the bottom of the bra, as my slacks will rubb against it when sitting down which i do all day at work and i have to move constantly and wears it thin and then holes appear. Second the stuffing would keep skin away from skin as this mashes the breast against the body forming a fold, which gets sweaty and sore. It fits me well and I like it for that reason but would like something to separate the skin at the bottom of the bra to prevent the constant rubbing. I think it might have to be something that folds around possibly. not sure maybe someone can invent something?

go tooThis is my go too bra. I have loved it since I first started wearing it back almost 25 years ago. I had hated the stays that some other bras had and the others with no underwire left me looking like a boob log had landed on my chest. With this bra I am comforted supported and separated. I have narrow shoulders and the padded straps help grip. There is no annoying ride up in the back and they most importantly have a huge range of sizes. Never felt like I was wearing something from the age of rubber and steel boning, even for a minimizer it is beautiful and elegant. And reasonable.

The pink is gorrrgeeeous!I've been wearing this bra for some time, and recently noticed how much cheaper it is on this website! I mean a lot cheaper! At any rate, being large busted, I'm always searching for that perfect bra (that I have yet to find!) This is the best I have found so far. It is comfortable, covers me well (I don't like falling out of my bra!), is pretty good at keeping the straps from digging into my shoulders, and comes in a nice variety of colors. I just received it in pink and quickly ordered another thinking it may just be a summer color! It is absolutely a beautiful shade of pink! In the stores, I never see anything other than the basic colors so this is a nice change cause I just love trying to feel sexy as a plus sizer!

The style is great. The quality is poor.I've worn this style for years and as a heavy-chested female, I appreciate a properly supportive bra. This time I was really disappointed. Instead of 4 hooks, the closure has been reduced to 3 hooks, which did not feel as stable.
The worst part is the underwire popped through the fabric after 2 wearings. I didn't want to be difficult, so I just stitched it up myself. The next time i wore the bra, the underwire popped out of the other side of the fabric. Essentially, I wasted my time and my money.
