Genie Bra Set of 4 2 Basic and 2 Lace Bras w/ Modesty Pads
not liking change
I have used these bras before and love how comfortable they are. I'm especially pleased that the straps don't slip off the shoulder. However, the modesty pads are different from the style I had previously ordered. They use be a nice, soft, rounded pad. The new ones are of a triangle shape with sharp corners. I take the pads out when I wash the bras and the triangle shape is difficult to insert. It goes in easily, but trying to get the triangle to not show through the bra is ridiculous! It takes a lot of maneuvering to make it look natural with no corners poking through!
Need Better Straps
I found that it does ride up and the straps fall off of the shoulder, if you would make them in a razorback, I think it would work better.
Better Bra With 2 Flaws!
These bras are good. I find that they don't rid up "as much" as the other bras. Would like to see them in larger sizes other than the XL/1X. If they ran in sizes 2X then maybe they would not ride up!
YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE..!!!
This is my second order of these bras..different colors of course. They are so comfortable and pretty.. As per my title here.. I have been on a Yellow binge lately.. blouses. pants, dishes..lol ok U get the idea. Well I found out that with any yellow blouse I need and feel better in,a yellow bra and I actually found one in this group.. I am a happy dancing little canary with this find!!.. These are so very comfy BUT very slimming also with the wider band around my ribs.U read about some of the other girls here with the discomfort around the ribs and I really am sorry about that. We as women are blessed with bodies that no matter how hard we try, we bulge where others don't which makes buying clothing a challenge. I just know that my back fat is greatly reduced in these, they make me feel like a pretty and well dressed little birdie.
Nice bras, but...
I like this style of bra and the value is great for the price. However, I am small busted and I'm not a heavy person. I had to return the medium because it felt so tight around my ribs. I exchanged them for an XL, which I never ever wear! They still feel a bit too tight around my ribs. I would size way up, as the bust area on these is pretty much the same. I can't recommend as a gift because of this issue.
These bras don't fit or have the definition of "real" bras, but they're comfortable and inexpensive and work well for me (34D cup). The modesty pads have a thin silky fabric over them that will come off with the first washing, and somehow they both end up on one side sometimes. They're not ideal, but certainly beat underwires. Great under knits -- won't show anything you don't want to show. I wear them exclusively.
Comfy but not very flattering
I just wear these around the house when I am cleaning and looking for comfort. The bra was not flattering on me, I looked a little smashed. But I have a friend who swears by them! She is not as big as me, so that may be the difference
Luv Em 24/7
The Genie bra is my favorite bra in my whole collection. Blessed with a smaller endowment so I don't require seperation or a lot of heavy duty support so I can't speak to those issue for many. But for me the support and gentle shaping is excellent. I recently had breast surgery and have worn the genie bra 24/7. I tried wearing two for added support, but the added support was actually too much. I have often had trouble with traditional bras riding up over my subtle feminine form, but not the genie bra. Hope these are always available for purchase, as they have become a staple in my wardrobe. Easy care, easy wear. Thanks Genie bra and QVC.
I love these bras
I love these bras. They are all I wear anymore. However, I did order them about two sizes larger since I can't stand tightness around my waist or chest. They still fit. (I'm a size 8 or 10 on top and ordered a size L/XL)
I used to leave the pads in to wash, but they shifted, there was no reason to wash them so often,and now I just take them out. They can't get lost since the pads are the same color as the bra and they don't get lost.
The padding gives enough shape to this 78 year old woman.
These are a good buy.
To call this a bra is implying that it supports, separates, and lifts your breasts...this doesn't do any of those. I made the purchase because I actually have used this "bra" as a night bra ONLY. This is actually my second purchase, but have found this batch to be even less supportive than the ones I got nearly 2 years ago. I even get the xsmall/small option and its still very loose, even when according to their size charts, I should order a medium. Fact of the matter is, as much as they say otherwise, these are not meant to be great bras at all. You will be doing a disservice to your breast if you think otherwise. Sleep bra, good enough, but not for anything other than that.
I really like the bras. They fit very well. I wear them everyday!!
I usually don't have time to write a review except when I really feel passionate about something. Simply put, I love these bras. Just be sure to size up. You can't beat the confort and price.
