good bra but difficult hook closure
i like the spanx bras in general and this one fits me ok but as other reviewers have commented the front closure of three tiny hooks is very difficult to use! i also find the underwires on this bra very uncomfortable compared to their racerback bralalluya. the hidden shoulder adjustments are difficult as well but luckily you only have to do it once. i wouldn't buy another but if it fits you might be happy.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons
Like the previous reviews, I enjoyed the back of this bra in the fact that there is no bulging of tissue being cut in to, and it stays flat across the back. It had nice wider straps, adjustable, but I thought the side of the bra needed to be cut higher so there is less tissue spillage from under the arm that pushes to the front. I may not be describing it very well, but those of us who are larger busted, and carry more towards the side, need that extra fabric to push "the girls" to stay front and centre, so to speak. I found this bra "very difficult" to close, considering it was a front closure bra. I appreciate the three hooks, but I felt the hooks needed to be larger in size. I could barely see them, and I had to pull the bra, leaning forward, to try and get the hooks to catch. It took forever. Like the other reviews, I also needed more fabric to cover the bust itself. This bra is very close to being a great bra, so please, please, keep working at it. I know not all bras can fit us all, but you are on the right track. If anyone can solve these dilemma's Sara, it is you!! Those of us who are DD, E, etc, it is difficult to find a good solid built bra that is not covered in expensive french lace, $195 for the bra and another $100 plus for the matching panty the size of a doily. We want a "comfortable bra", that does not break the bank, that fits well all around. I do not find the bumps from colored beautiful laced bras attractive through a white T-shirt or thin-fabric top. Smaller chested women seems to have better selections from padded to push-up, to all kinds of pretty colors. The very large busted have specialty shops which do not go as low as those of us in this middle range. Those of us in the middle range keep searching for that elusive smooth covered bra that has a front closure to keep the back smooth, straps that do not dig in our shoulders, but that can be adjusted, and with or without wires to put the breasts in the proper front position. We can put a man on the moon so why can't we design proper bras?P.S. What happened the the Spanx minimizer bra? I have enquired but can get no answers??
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the back better than the front
By happy customer
from Edmonton, Alberta
This bra is well-made - but it really should be for the price point. I really like the back - it offers good support and really does smooth out the bumps! The cups are actually not deep enough for a larger breasted woman - there is spillage - but I can hide this in some tops. Wish spanx would make a few bras for the DDD and up size girls. Like the front closure as well. I will be keeping this bra but I am still looking for one that gives more coverage. This one is probably perfect for a smaller to average size bust.

Not enough coverage
I really like the back and the front closure, but the cups don't have enough coverage for larger breasted women. There is a lot of "pillowing" and spilling over the cups. I bought my usual size 40C and was very hopeful it would give good support and still be comfortable. It is comfortable, but the "spillover" can be seen through clothes. Unfortunately I will have to return this product because it is unflattering.I would recommend this to a smaller breasted woman but definitely not for a C cup or larger.
