Very comfortable Bra ! I purchased a black one a few weeks ago and just loved it. The front adjustable straps are great. I loved the two hook closure, most bras my size, 44C, have four hooks. Putting on this bra is a snap. It provides good support for my " girls " and helps present a flattering figure. I liked the black bra so much that I purchased two more, one in white and one in beige. I highly reccomend !

The criss cross design is good and the elastic straps are quality, not flimsy. But, the lace cups do nothing to support after the first wash. I have had this bra for only a couple of weeks. The lace breaks down and forms weak spots that become frayed holes. This would be a good bra if the cups were made of a more durable material.

                  As a person needing a large band size with smaller cup, this is a good choice and wears so well, you can't tell it is on. Important for someone needing some breast support in golden years where comfort is key.

                  Comments about Lace Cross & Shape Bra by National®:

                  I know my review is all over the place. After discarding countless expensive bras that were not comfortable for one reason or another, I decided to give Nationals a try because I love the cross-my-heart style. Many reviews said the band was too tight, so I decided to go up a size. Wearing it, we went away for an overnight trip. By mid-day, I thought I'd hyperventilate because the bra was keeping my mid section from expanding. Went to a Hanes store only to learn that Playtex has eliminated the cross-my-heart. Tried on 6 expensive bras which gave no shape. When I got home and measured my normal size to the larger ones I bought, they were the same size!! Now I have 5 new National bras that are pretty and I like the style. I don't like the store bought bra-extenders so I am going to add a piece of elastic and move the hooks so I can actually breath when I wear them. If I do recommend them to anyone, I would warn them about the band.

                              Love the cross shape it very comfortable.

                                The criss cross design is good and the elastic straps are quality, not flimsy. But, the lace cups do nothing to support after the first wash. I have had this bra for only a couple of weeks. The lace breaks down and forms weak spots that become frayed holes. This would be a good bra if the cups were made of a more durable material.

                                    the bra is certainly pretty; but if you are short-waisted like I am it's not the bra for you either. The band is to tall and the cups are way to much material, can be seen in a v-neck.

                                        This is made with the uplift device in the cups that were present in a big brand bra. They discontinued the style. I was delighted to find National's version. Fits even better. Please do not discontinue!
