I hate wearing bras. The older I get the more I hate them. But, I can't wear a bulky sports bra to work.. this I can. The Patagonia 'Barely Everyday Bra is light but supportive... I can wear it 'safely' under a white blouse for work- or with T-shirts. It is comfy and eve though it is thin, you cannot see my 'bits'... I am 50, 5'9', 150# with broad shoulders and normally wear a 38C... C only because I have a wide chest.... like an ex- swimmer.. the Large fits me perfectly... thank you Patagonia... this is my every day- go to bra.

This might be TMI but I feel it's important to mention to review this bra. I've had a breast lift (read perky) and haven't had a need for a strapless bra in 15 years. However, I recently bought a dress that is sheer and thin that required something with a feminine, plunging neckline vs. my normal bandeau bra. I searched for the highest rated strapless bras here and ordered the top 2 -- this one and the Ongossamer one. I absolutely loved the champagne color of the Ongassamer one but found it to be scratchy and not staying put when I jumped up and down. I'll be dancing in my dress and am not interested in having this baby move. When I put this bra on, there was a noticeable difference in comfort. It stayed in place and I'm attributing that to the nice wide back strap and the silicone bands. This bra is a keeper and I highly recommend it. I ordered my normal size of a 36B and the cup was perfectly true to size. I normally adjust the back to the tightest hook and eye clasp but this bra felt better being on the 2nd one (there are 3). It does have a nice level of padding for the push up so if you want to downplay your girls, you may not like this bra because it will push them up.

I have been wearing Wacoal bras for about the past six years. I always have trouble finding bras in my size since I am a 38G. I always buy the same one, style #85122 and it is a minimizer and is super comfortable, but I wanted to try something different. I went with the Wacoal 855186 Retro Chic and I am pretty disappointed. The look of the bra is really cute and I was pretty excited about that. I am tired of having to settle for bras that look like my grandmother's bras. The reviews for this were pretty good and I paid close attention to the reviewers with around the same size I am, but for me this bra just does not have the support that I am looking for. Plus it feels like the undewire is going to pop right through any second and poke me and trust me, that is not a fun feeling. So, it looks like I am returning this bra and probably sticking with my same old choice. The bummer part is, the minimizer only comes in one color, nude. How boring! I also have to add that Zappos has stellar service and I love the speedy delivery!
