First of all, the girls are singing hallelujah for the Bra-llelujah. The comfort is unsurpassed. The look under the clothing is wonderful. Now for the minor faults: The straps can tend to be a tad short, causing the overall fit to ride up in the back. Rather than return the product for a smaller band size to prevent the ride up (in addition the straps would then be incrementally shorter to account for the smaller size). I took in the band in the center of the back, essentially downsizing the band width a full size while keeping the strap length the same. The ride up problem is solved. However, this is not at all a problem with the two racer-backs I purchased. Now for the look: It is extremely utilitarian...egh. For the price, a few more colors would be nice. Other than those minor flaws, I have not worn any other bras since being introduced to the Spanx line. I am a convert for life.

The band stretched so much during wear that I started falling out the bottom. Note that it felt great at first, so it's now too late to return it. No amount of readjusting helped. I was stuck spending 11 hours on international flights with the underwire in all the wrong places. The Spanx sizing chart is no help. Given other reviews that mentioned stretching, I went with the smaller of the two band sizes that I fall between. This is unfortunate as the fabric is great and it ought to be a wonderful bra, but it's not.

In my opinion this bra does not live up to the hype. Very expensive and the expected high level of comfort. Not so much. Save your money on this one.

This bra has no adjustment in the straps or in the band and it lifts up in a way that is completely strange, way, way too high. Unfortunately this is going back.

The straps and back of this bra are really comfortable. The molded cups, however, have some issues. They're really stiff, almost hard, like Brunhilda's breast plate in a Viking opera. I have problems with the cups when I have to reach up to a high shelf or down to the floor. The shift out of place, even though the bra actually fits. I wouldn't spend this much on this bra again. There are comfy bras out there with better cups.

I just got this bra and love love it! I am just 5'2" but size 34-DD. I could use a 34-DDD but it's not available. So comfy and improves my shape in the back. Straps are great and stay in place all the time! Straps might not work for a tall lady they are great for me.

This bra is the most comfortable I have ever worn! I tried this bra on in a store in all configurations and sizes to figure out what fits and feels the best and I think I got it dialed in. Go down 1 size in the band. Bras ride up in the back if the band is too big, not if the straps are too tight! (I work with a former bra fitter who explained it all to me.) I wear a 34D and I tried the 32D and it fits perfect. I spend quite a bit of time looking for comfortable bras. I used to wear a Body by Victoria IPEX underwire bra but they stopped making it so I was looking for a good replacement. Normally, underwire drives me crazy but being a C/D cup it is really hard to find support without it so I ended up wearing sports bras most of the time. Not super great for creating a good shape under a tee shirt. My only complaint to Spanx is I wish they made the underwire version in a D cup. I like that bra also and could wear it since the cups are molded but the C cup is too small.

Love the bra--it's a bra where the straps do not slip down! The size is true and I feel that the straps do not need adjusting as I had read in others reviews. Pricey, yes--but I would buy it again and will.

I am a large woman and have been searching for a comfortable minimizing bra that won't cut into my shoulders - I finally found it with this bra! I had to return the first bra for a smaller size (I usually wear 42DD, which was too big in the cups and band, but the 40D fits perfectly). As far as bras go, it's very comfortable. And, Zappos' super fast shipping can't be beat. I ordered the bra yesterday morning, and it arrived to my rural address via UPS this morning. Fantastic bra, and fantastic store!

This is my third Spanx bra and my first contouring bra. It is an extremely comfortable and well-fitting bra, though it doesn't make my chest look as perky as other bras. My other Spanx bras stretched out quickly to the point that they hang off me. I hope this one lasts longer!

The most comfortable bra I have ever owned. One thing you must be aware of though is that the straps are not adjustable and hence if you have a small frame as I do, you will need to have them shortened to be supportive. Worth it!

I've never found a bra that doesn't hurt before...until now! Seriously, this is so comfortable, it feels like I'm not wearing anything at all (yet I'm supported)! I'm between a 34 or 36 D. I got the 36D, and probably could have gone to the 34D. But I'm keeping this! One happy lady with two comfortable boobs!

My favorite, most comfortable bra for the past 5 years. I wore a 34c until a few years ago when a bra fitter at nordstrom convinced me to go to 32D. She said it would last twice as long and she was right.

This is a very comfortable bra, with outstanding support. It also minimizes the look of my back fat! It is the only bra I have found in which the straps actually stay on my shoulders.

This is my absolute favorite bra! While it does eventually stretch to the point of no return (as there are no adjusting straps), the bra is still so fabulous that I just throw it out and get another. Each bra usually lasts me about a year with repeated wear. The smooth look due to the lack of hooks, closures, etc, is worth it to me. And, nothing digs into the skin so much to create bulging skin over the bra. Love it!

This is my favorite bra ever. I have worn a Bra-llelujahs almost daily for five years. About every two years or so I replace them because they wear out. Some people say you are supposed to replace them every six months. I am a (low end of) B cup so I do not need quite as much support as other sizes, so I do not because they are expensive.

I ordered 2 of these bras for myself. After trying them I couldn't believe how comfortable they were. I ordered them for my 4 daughters and they love them too! I would highly recommend this bra to anyone who thinks bras, especially underwire bras, are uncomfortable.

I hate bras because I can never find one that fits properly. I am a petite 32C and I always feel like the underwire is sitting in the middle of my ribcage. No wire bras have a tendency to flatten. I used to have a favorite bra from Victoria's Secret but they discontinued it about six years ago and I have been searching ever since. I have wasted tons of money. This bra is incredible. I honestly do not feel like I am wearing one. The straps fit perfectly for me. I am thinking about buying 10 just to have them in case they are discontinued.

Super comfortable. I worried that the front clip might dig into my skin, but that hasn't been a problem at all. Looks great under clothes and doesn't create weird lines at all.

"Bra-llelujah!" is right! The girls have never been happier! Fit, comfort, wear is excellent. So comfortable you don't know you have it on. Finally, finally! Search no more. This is it.

I don't understand the negative reviews! Like for realz, this is the best ever! It's comfortable. Lightweight and is a greater shaper! I wear a size 44d. The next bra I plan on purchasing is the full figure bra that eliminates side fat!

LOVE this bra! Just wish it wasn't becoming impossible to find! Others may say they are a great T shirt bra, but this one truly is! And, it is one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn. Amazing amount of support for a D cup in a front clasp bra.

I love this bra! It fits like a dream. It's so comfortable and holds its shape, as well as mine, all day. I'm a 36DD and the Bra-llelujah is the only bra I wear.

Ok, so it's not the sexiest bra ever, but boy is it comfortable. The price is a bit steep but still worth paying. This bra is seamless under clothes, doesn't pinch and wear-all-day-everyday comfy.

I've bought countless bras online, including ones costing a lot but this is the only style I've stuck with (and now my bra drawer is full of these). I'm 34C and bought my "normal size". For me: the straps do not shift one bit (even though I'm only 5'5" and frequently need to tighten bra straps to the max) and it is extremely comfortable; w/ other bras, I have to get out of them as soon as I get home; with this I can get through day-long flights without ever being conscious of the fact I'm wearing it. It's pretty much invisible under even sheerish and very tight clothing I think of the stretchy band etc. as just a bonus. I toss this in the wash when the band is not as tight as freshly laundered. All my Spanx bras get renewed back to original "tightness", regardless of their age. When this comes on sale, I buy 4 at a time.
