Rated 2 out of 5Â by Lore88 Beautiful Design, Bad Fit
I loved the design of this bra, it seemed like there would be a lot of support because of the corset-like design. When I tried it on, it lifted really well, but the actual cups of the bra were really flimsy. I felt like there was no support in the cups, and the shape also really separates your girls rather than creating cleavage. So I am returning it, sadly. I am a 34D, and I think this bra would work better on smaller sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by planetqueen great bra for larger sizes
I had to try three sizes in this bra before I got the right one, but I'm glad I did. I typically wear a 34D and have challenges with strapless bras. Either they have no support and tend to slip down, or they are so tight through the band that they give me a backache. I have a wide ribcage, so the fact that this bra fastened below it was very appealing. Since some strapless bras run big, I tried a 34C, 32D and 34D, and ended up getting the 32D. I would say the cups in these bras run true ot size, not large like some strapless bras. If you think the cups seem too close together, going up a cup size should help. I ended up going with the 32 rather than the 34 band because I felt like it gave me more support, and because I'm much narrower at the waist than through my ribcage, where most bras fasten. The feel of the bra did take e a bit of getting used to, since the back is very low and the support comes from underneath, not at the sides. It feels like I'm 'floating' above the band, but in reality there is no slipping or jiggling, and the pads in the lower cups create nice cleavage. It also has a slimming effect through the upper body and waist,a nice added benefit. This bra is expensive, but Anthro actually has a better price than most online retailers I checked. I'm looking at this as an investment that I"ll be able to use for many years to come.

this is a good strapless bra, but not great. i'm a 36d, so maybe it would be better on a smaller cup size, but i found that the cups were spread pretty widely apart and fairly soft, for this reason didn't do so much for cleavage or support. also, if you are looking for a lingerie piece, i found that the middle of the bra (between the boning) rode up, producing a rather odd geometry. the back of the bra was also made of a different material.
however, the bra did stay where it was supposed to! detatcheable straps were provided but i haven't used them yet.
