Rated 1 out of 5Â by Ms. Arkwright Ouch! This bra has sharp edges!
Like quite a few of the other reviewers I found the Leisure Bra to be one size too small. But that's not the real problem with the one I received.
The edges around the clasp area are razor sharp! Almost immediately upon putting the bra on the edges began cutting into my skin. It was agony when I moved! Think of a clothing tag that irritates the back of your neck multiplied by 100.
I took the bra off and tried trimming the edges of the clasp area to see if I could get rid of the sharpness, but I was afraid I'd cut into the bra itself. It looks like there are lots of stitches and folded over elastic that might be making the edges so sharp.
I'm sad that this bra didn't work for me. I like the look and feel of it. I'm also sad that I spent $30 on it. Oh well.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Patinky Good and bad
Excellent feel to the materials and very well constructed. However, it is not the bra for a 38L (Vermont Country Store sizing). The description does say it is for every-day at-home wear (or words to that effect) and for that it is an excellent choice -- unless you have drop-in company. You will likely need modesty pads and you will want to walk slowly. :) If you are no larger than say a 38C you will probably like this bra. I hate to give it three stars because it is probably a five-star bra for smaller busts. For me, it is an average bra that I wouldn't buy again. Also, it isn't ecru. It is a very pretty shade of yellow so don't buy "ecru" thinking it will be flesh-toned or beige.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Not one Uncomfortable
Size difficult to estimate since my usual size did not work. Problem is I didn't realize just how uncomfortable it was until I wore it for a couple of hours. I assume I cannot return it now.

This bra does the job and is comfortable beyond compare. I would recommend to those who want to stick to the basics; and do not care for under-wires, padding, and/or scratchy fabrics.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mary Joy intimates for shorties
I'm a 91-year-old pensioner, five feet tall. The Vermont Country store is the only place I have been able to find white healthy cotton short-torso underpants. I have also bought from you a Tyrolean design cotton flannel nightgown and Tyrolean fleece-lined slippers which I wear almost every day. I love these products. Thanks for all you do. Mary Joy

I do not consider this item to be a leisure bra. Not as comfortable as the coobie bra.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by "Always a Woman to me" FRUSRATION WITH MATERIALS IN TODAY'S BRAS - ALLERGIC TO LATEX & synthetics !!!
At first I was so ecstatic to learn that you were selling bras with no latex. Due to medical problems, I was told I was allergic to latex and never to use it next to my skin. I've had major problems trying to find bras that said they did not have latex. Unfortunately, after I tried your bras I developed a rash and learned that I also cannot use anything with synthetic materials such as elastic or metal or even nylon as those materials cause me to get a feeling of irritation. I then develop a horrendous rash under my breasts. I always wash my bras by hand. I don't know what I am going to wear! This is so frustrating ! I never had this problem as a young girl ? Perhaps, my choice of soap is part of the problem??? I will have to really investigate further. Why is everything so full of chemicals we don't need. Thank you for carrying superior products & taking customers feedback seriously to hopefully cause a change when needed. We love your store!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by AFGPA Sizing is very small
I had received this product from another company, had I known it was the same manufacturer I would not have ordered. The problem was the same, very small for the size purchased.
