I am a convert!
Decided to try the Genie bra when it was a showstopper and ordered a set of Milana bras as well. Was a little hesitant to try this brand after reading all the negative reviews about sizing.I sized up 1 size for the regular style and 2 up for the Milana as suggested on air. I am a 36C more because of a wide back than a large bust. The Genie in L was a little tight around the ribs and the shoulder straps were too short but the Milana in XL fit perfectly. Both styles gave me a nice shape. Did find the regular Genie modesty pads are a little small and tend to move around. Will exchange the regular Genies for a XL/1X and hope they fit more comfortably.The material is lovely and soft and the Milana lace has as much stretch as the bra material. Both bras gave me a nice shape, minimized the "underarm cleavage" and gave me a smooth silhouette across my back. I can see the merit in the company offering extra modesty pads.Would like to see the Milana in other colours. The 'nude' is quite dark - any chance of getting a lighter beige/blush colour?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

the 3x was not a bad fit though I usually wear 1X? As I noted before the 2X made me completely flat. I would still like a bit more lift although these are much better and comfortable. The bands on any of these bras don't stay down. Can't have everything I guess.
Makes a person look flat
from New Brunswick
Don't know quite what to make of these bras. The cami is certainly nice. As noted, they do fit small. I got a 2x and fits nicely. I take a 40D bra usually. I love the back, hides buldges. But, it does make you look flat, it looks like I am a B cup which I don't mind, but don't like looking flat per se, doesn't look right. So, I am sending back and trying Rhonda bras. The bras should lift and separate, would be so much more flattering. The inside pads don't do much.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
THE PERFECT BRA
By Tara Jewell
from Fredericton (New Brunswick)
I love this bra - it's the only one I wear now. So comfortable and pretty. I like the built-in cami effect that is why I like the Milana style.Just make sure you BUY A LARGER SIZE - I am a large/x-large in real life and I buy the 3X. Fits perfect.I have purchased and repurchased this item.

returning all. too tight, not sized as said. nicely made, but dreadful to get on and off. A larger size will not help. fit a curved back very badly. Pretty though.
way too tight
How could anyone who wears a 2x use this bra? It totally flattened me. I will exchange for 3x but I don't think it will be close to big enough in the cup. I have the other Genie bras and although they don't give you much shape they fit well enough to be comfortable. Just a note: I always take the inserts out to wash the bra and hang the bras to dry.

Finally a size 3X. Usually. Take a size 2X in normal genie bra. 3X is very comfortable. Would love to see brighter Colours in this bra.
By TSC Shopper
Very nice bra but they are made small. I am a 20-22 ordered the 2X and it is snug. I could definitely go to a 3X or 4X if they had it. I am thinking the bustier you are the more sizes go up, at least one and even two or three if you are busty.

I love the bras but I find the support pads do not wash well, even by hand. The outer fabric separates from the foam. Could you possibly sell replacement pads as the bras themselves are fine?Also a bigger choice of colours would be nice and would also be nice if you would introduce this style to the UK market, wasn't available when recently there and I recommended them to friends.

Lovely bras. Beware of sizing
from Vancouver, BC
I'm a size 34B. I ordered medium sized Milana bras and found them to be extremely tight-fitting. Exchanged it for an XL and they fit perfectly!(Not too loose/tight). They are great and very comfortable to wear. Note that it does take a while to do an exchange so choose your size carefully!
