I just received my new Playtex (48D) model and both my girls and back are super happy. I was quite overdue for a new bra and after extensive online researching I finally found one that helps support my large chest that doesn’t have straps that dig into my shoulders.
I know some ladies have complained about the Madonna cone shape; although not really pointy, the cups are somewhat are narrowed at the tip. However, I think that for people with a very large bust size like me, it almost has to be shaped that way in order to provide the lift needed; a combination of geometry and physics!
I’m sold on this model and will continue to purchase it because I’m very limited in choices, so when I find something that really works for me, I tend to stick with it.
What more or less can be said, it's Playtex! Quality spelled out in the name of the brand. Comfortable, well made, fits exact to size but with still enough room to breath. Soft and gentle comfort against your body but will hold up to years of use.
Seriously. I moved to FL 10yrs ago this Dec. In prep for the relocation and adjusting for time to familiarize myself with new surroundings, I stocked up on necessities. Being a larger woman, I can't just walk into Wal-Mart for clothing needs. That said, I bought a dozen of my favorite Playtex 18-hr bras. Just this past summer I had to start shopping around for replacements, after 10 yrs of rotating 12 bras, that is a good value for the cost!
Just by chance I was strolling through internet and found Divine Gear. When I found these bras, at this price....hmmmm? To say the least I was skeptical of this cost, thinking seconds or returns. Nope, brand new, still in original factory sealed shrinkwraps. Well packed, shipped on time. RECOMMENDED 5' ''s for product & sale process.
This was my second time ordering this particular bra, which I am very well satisfied with! The comfortable, full coverage in the back & on the sides is excellent. The cup coverage & support is the best alternative to an underwire bra that I've found. As some have mentioned, the cups ARE rather pointy; HOWEVER, I think this effect greatly lessened after a relatively short time of wear & laundering. I definitely really like this bra for its comfort, support, & style.
I love this bra. I never thought my girls would be supported without underwire. It is so nice not having that poke me. The band is very wide and does fold up at times. I can see why this would bother some people, but it's only a slight annoyance to me. The straps are super comfy with the little bit of padding in them. I can see how people might think this bra turns their breasts into torpedoes, but honestly the look is very nice. My hubby loves the way my shirts fit with this bra, and no one has made any comments about me wearing a "cone bra." LOL I have washed this bra in my front load machine twice now. No issues. I have hung it to dry, but believe it would hold up well to the dryer. I did not experience the horrid smell others mentioned, though there was a faint chemical smell I could smell only for a moment after initially removing it from the package. No lingering smell. So far I am very pleased. I will be purchasing more of this brand/style very soon because one good bra is just not enough.
My item came one day ahead of the planned time which was great. I read a lot of the reviews before i bought this so I do think that you should pre measure your bust line before selecting a size. I pre measured and then i added 2 inches to to that number then i used that number and looked at the sizing chart that the site shows and ordered accordingly. I wear normally a 3XL top so if you order 2 sizes up like I did then it should fit greatly.
The fit itself is very comfortable. It is very hard to find a larger DDD cup size so I was extremely happy when this fit so well. The only thing some people might not like is in the front the lower band part under the boobs does fold under once it is on but for me this is fine as it is very comfortable and doesn't bother me . My bust got a very good lift and now looks much better . Also, the side underarm part covers good and doesn't have that bad muffin over flow like a lot of other bras do. It even smooths out and looks good. The back on the site shows it having 3 clasps for closing but mine have 4 clasps which is great as it gives more support in helping to hold up and provide that sexy lift . In all i love my new bras. I brought the double pack and I plan to buy more soon.
