Needed a soft bra for support to sleep in after surgery, but could not find one in local stores with enough length from top of shoulder to underneath bust to keep from riding up while sleeping. On this bra, the strap portion going over the top of the shoulder stretches so that the bottom band does not ride up. I had remembered seeing them in the catalog at a time when I didn't need them, and on a gamble, I sent for one. It was the perfect answer. It was a little more expensive than the local one, but price isn't everything - the fit and comfort made it worth every penny!

I am so delighted with this bra for leisure wear. I even wore it to sleep one night as I forgot I had it on. The cotton knit is very soft, and the fit is good (true to size I normally wear) with good support for leisure. The front closure is also very soft & comfortable, (not my previous experience years ago with another brand). I definitely plan to purchase more of these.

sized small, but comfortable
The bra is comfortable, but it was necessary to order a larger size than my regular bras. I wear a size 44D in an underwire bra and I always buy a 48 M (C, D, E) in this bra (a sizable difference). I have 2 black and 1 ecru. The cotton blend is pleasant to wear. The shoulder straps, while wide enough so that they don't cut into the shoulder, are not very well padded. It is a "leisure" bra so don't expect a lot of support, but it is good to wear around the house.

This product has great features
I needed a bra with support and comfort. I got both with this bra. I am very happy with this purchase and will purchase more in the future.

A LITTLE TIGHT FOR A LEISURE BRA
I ordered the size that I usually take in an ordinary bra, a 38. Since there is no way to adjust the bra around the rib cage, I find that it is just too tight for a "leisure bra." It seems to hold every thing up in place, but I was looking for a cotton bra that would be comfortable all day long. There is also no way to adjust the straps. I usually fasten my bras that close in the back, in the front and then turn them around and put the straps in place. I had some shoulder problems and found that this is the only way that I could close them. With this bra I need to close it and then put it in place. Fastening it in place is almost impossible. I will try a 40 or even a 42 to see if maybe one of these will be more comfortable.

I want the nylon version back
I have these in nylon and they are great. I thought that's what i was ordering. (duh). I was going to come here and check out the number for the nylon ones and exchange these. But there are no nylon ones available on the web page now. I guess that's why I didn't order them.
These are just as comfortable and fit just as well, but they cause clothes to ride because the clothing won't slide on them. So for t-shirts they make you choke as the front of the t-shirt rides up as you move. So you have to tug on your clothes all the time.
Also, I measured using their instructions and originally ordered what they recommended (38) even though I generally wear a 40. Those are not nearly as comfortable as the size 40 ones I ordered later. So I recommend caution with their sizing instructions for this particular style of bra.
