Spanx Bra-vo Back-Smoothing Bra
Totally Bra Challenged
I did not want to write a review of this bra as i plan to buy several more and don't want everyone to know how great it is and hence have them sell out. But I just have to shout that this bra is incrediblely comfortable. I started purchasing front hook bras because the bra straps are less likely to fall down. However, of the many front hook bras I have purchaesd, this bra exceeded all my expectations. The bra straps stay up, the hooks in the front do not pinch my skin, the fit is perfect. This bra is the perfect bra..
Why not offer in WHITE?
Love everything about this bra and purchased it in both colors; however, there are some sheerer fashions for Spring and Summer that require a WHITE bra! PLEASE, please, please offer this bra in white! I have yet to find a bra that fits me as well as this one and it really does deliver on the "back-smoothing" it advertises. I would note, however, that you just don't throw on this bra. You fit yourself into it to achieve the smoothing it delivers. Lean forward and allow your breasts to enter the bra, connect the hooks and, under the arms, ensure you are fitted into the sides of the bra too. If you take the few seconds to do this, you will have a much better fit and comfort.
Best bra ever. I was accused of having had a breast lift....no lift, just a GREAT bra.
Don't Believe the Hype!
I am a big fan of Spanx products, so I was excited to order this back-smoothing bra. I was sure if any company could get this right, it was Spanx. I was wrong! I had worn the bra maybe twice when the underwire poked through the fabric and stabbed me! In the middle of a business meeting, no less!! On top of that, I could never get the straps to stay put, so my bust looked lopsided. I wanted to love it, but I couldn't. I would not recommend this product.
Makes you flat
The idea for this bra is good but this product doesn't really work.
It just is not built right to hold the breast in an attractive way while keeping
skin from buldging under arms and back. I am not overweight, just older so I need more of a shaping feature. This bra is for strong, young breasts I think.. I should have returned it but I'm going to try to alter it to work for me. Just an experiment. Kinda expensive but there you are.
Best Bra Ever, but need more sizes!
I ordered this bra in a size that was to big, but I wanted to try it and b/c it is not offered in the size I need. This would be a fantastic bra! Please make this in 36DDD! PLEASE!!! I gave 3 stars since it is not made in a 36DDD and do not understand why.
I just received this today, in black. Originally I ordered one size down from my all-time favorite (being discontinued) Breezies A49332 (A08737 two-fer), going by the given garment measurements. If you have purchased the Breezies I have referenced, please order the same size in this bra. It is far and away one of the most comfortable, uplifting bras I have had on in years! Certainly not inexpensive, but frankly worth every penny! I am now preparing to order a few more, in other colors. I just cannot believe how great this bra is! Ladies, you will not regret getting this! I would only not recommend this as a gift, since a bra is a very personal matter, with different "cuts" fitting differently for women.
Underwire Digs into side
Love the back smoothing, but the end of the underwire digs into side under arm....very uncomfortable...wouldn't be able to wear longer than 5 mins Sending back.
Very well worth the money!
This bra provided a true fit cup size (despite other reviews about them being huge- they may want to get re-measured). Although the front hooks can take a few seconds longer to fasten, they are the best and most secure design for large chested women. The back design is perfect the way it is, (I would recommend sizing up if you experience it rolling up on you). I ordered a 38D, my regular size and it fits perfect, with great support. Very well worth the money, please do not change anything!
Good bra, but overpriced.
I agree with the other reviews that the cup size is a bit large, but it does provide uplift and support. If this bra were cheaper, I would buy it in every color. It does hold in my back rolls.
A tip for adjusting the straps because I couldn't figure out it....
Unhook the strap on the inside of the strap and reconnect it a little bit higher.
the fit of this bra is ok in the front but it doesn't really stand up to the hipe about it. when you first put it on, it's great but after moving around it rides/rolls up in the back. maybe if someone was really thin it wouldn't do that but then they wouldn't need this type of bra. I was disappointed, had really high hopes when I saw it and ordered it. The price was also high and made the disappointment even greater. didn't have occasion to wear it but once or twice in the 30 day period so couldn't sent it back. Please have Sarah rework this model to correct the flaws, she can do it I know she can. love QVC and will be watching for an improved model.
This is a nice idea when it comes to bras. I like the way they made the straps when you have to shorten them. The front hook is okay too. The cups are huge...I wear a 42 C so size down. The cup material could be a little thicker (your nipples can been seen). The back is and comfortable. I am going to wear it for a few days and decide if it is worth the price.
