I absolutely adore this bra! I have spent thousands of hours and dollars in search of the right wirefree bra for this 36DD “older woman”. This bra is perfection to me. It gives me lift, which I need a great deal of help with, and a natural, flattering shape. I am extremely short waisted, which is why this works so well for me. I have to adjust the very short straps as long as possible in order for it to fit comfortably, which is why I can see complaints for those with a longer torso. But for me, it works perfectly. There is enough nylon stretch in the cotton cups to make it very comfortable. I am not one who wants or needs padding of any kind. I am so pleased with it, that I now own 4 and will purchase more with a sale. Additionally, each has arrived carefully wrapped and packaged.
