Going back to this bra after thirty years. Told then it was not the correct kind of bra for me. Convinced now it was and still is. The cup seams pucker a little, but enough that they show through a little on certain tops. Have ordered two other sizes besides the one I kept and one of them puckered too. May come out in wash. Orders came promptly and dealing with National has been a positive experience.

      This is the one bra style I can comfortably wear on a daily basis. It supports very well and rarely becomes uncomfortable. I've been wearing this style for many years and hope they continue making it for years to come.

          I have been looking for a bra that is right for my size. I had looked at several stores locally and was disappointed. But yours just did the trick and I am so happy to find one that will fit and be comfortable all day, at work or play.

            Once I found this bra I will not want to be without it. This is the first bra I have found with fully adjustable straps. Being only 5'2" most straps won't adjust short enough for me. This is a comfy,very supportive bra and gives a more mature woman a very youthful look.

              The only bra I have found in a 32D that is wirefree and without padding. The only change I would make is to have it made is beige.

                  I am a senior who tends to want things I have always used. I have used this same product since highschool, I'm 73 years old, and want comfort most of all. The stretch straps are really great.

                    The straps stay up better than most, and it washes up well. I wish it was available in more colors, especially black.

                            Although the cup size runs big,I feel that the support the bra gives makes up for it.

                            • Cup Fit:
                            • Feels too big
                            • Band Size:
                            • Feels true to size

                            5.0

                            Playtex is the best, reasonably priced.

                                    This is the only bra I'll wear. It gives me great support and is very comfortable. I am allergic to nylon so this bra is perfect for me.
