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 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.

Comfortable lightweight bra but the sewn points are noticeable so never with something form fitting.

Easy on, easy off. Comfortable and uplifting.
These bras are very comfortable and have the great advantage of never slipping off the shoulder. I highly recommend them.

Perfect for elderly mother
I bought one of the Leisure Bras for my mother, a resident in an assisted living facility. She absolutely loved it, not only for the convenient front closure but also because it's so comfortable! She liked it so much I bought several more for her, and now it's the only bra she'll wear. Thank you, VCS!

This has what I want.
I was searching for a bra that fastens in the front, since as I get older the back fastening isn't as easy as it used to be. In local stores I was only offered ones designed to hold 'falsies'. When I saw this bra in the catalog, it seemed just what I wanted. When my first order arrived, I found it was better than I thought, the streatching cups are ideal for someone like me who is between two cup sizes. This is my second order, and I'm sure it won't be my last.

Have finally found the right fit.
These bras are wonderful especially if you are hard to fit. Since having back surgery and gaining weight, being small breasted, I could not find a bra to fit. I just happened to try these bras and was so grateful to have found them. Please do not discontinue this item. I was at the point I did not know what I was going to do until I found these other than to have them special made. They are so comfortable as well with a great fit. Thank you Thank you.

Very comfortable cups
This bra is very soft and comfortable to wear. The cups gently stretch to fully support and surround the breasts.
