I'll Take One In Each Color, Please!

This lightly padded shelf bra is a great choice, especially when you figure that it costs only $10.99. I do recommend sizing up as the cups seem to run slightly small, but all in all? This is an excellent choice! I am able to wear it all day without a single problem, whereas I usually find myself complaining about my bras after just an hour or two.

extremely useful review
I have the worst luck finding comfortable bras that also look good. I buy so many, and most end up getting worn only once or twice, before I give up on them. When I saw this bra was available for $10.99, I figured why not give it a try. I'm glad I did, though it wasn't a perfect fit for me. Still, for $10.99? I will definitely buy more of these (though I may buy a size larger, next time).

Basics:
This bra is essentially a shelf bra with convertible straps. It's available in a great deal of sizes. It is also available in four colors: black, white, brown, and nude. I purchased it in black, as I figured it would match more of what I already own.

Material & Care:
The bra is made out of 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex.

The material does feel a little cheap, but it also feels durable. Part of the durable feeling comes from the fact that the material is quite thick. While the material isn't the highest of quality, it is a comfortable material. It's very smooth, and fairly soft, making it feel comfortable against my skin.

My one complaint about the material is that the material on the cups seems like it'll easily get misshapen. If it does get misshapen, I don't think that there will be anyway of fixing it, unfortunately. In fact, just from the shipping process, both cups have small dents in them. I have tried to make these dents go away, but it's just not possible. It's not a huge deal, however, as the dents aren't really noticeable when I'm wearing this.

To care for this bra, you're going to want to want to hand wash it in warm water, and then line dry it. Do not bleach this bra! I would recommend following those instructions exactly, as the washing machine will likely beat up the cups too much.

As for storage? I store this in a drawer with my other bras. Make sure that you store it in a way that protects the cups.

Sizing:
This bra is available in many different sizes. The great thing about the sizing here is that the bra actually has real sizing! No small, medium, and large for this one! I purchased this in 34d, as that's the size I typically wear.

In comparison to most of my other 34d bras, the cups seem to be slightly small. I am still able to wear it, but I feel I should size up to a 34dd next time.

My main issue with the cup size is the length. They're just very short cups, measuring slightly less than 6". The length won't be a problem for those of you with less full breasts, but if you have full breasts like me? Longer cups definitely would've been a plus! Still, I don't spill out over the cups, and I am able to wear this under clothing without it being noticeable.

The band size also seems to be slightly small, as I was only able to get it to stretch to 33" in length. My underbust actually measures 32", so the slightly small band size worked in my favor.

Design:
This bra is pretty basic. It's a shelf bra in style, which I always prefer. I find that shelf bras provide my breasts with the support I need, while also keeping my breasts in. It seems that most bras have me spilling out the tops of the cups, but that doesn't happen with this bra.

I love that this bra can be worn in multiple ways. You can wear it strapless, if you choose. For me, strapless didn't work, but it never does. Technically the bra stayed up when worn strapless, but it felt like it was always slipping down. This is likely a problem with ME not the bra. There is some sort of band on the top and bottom of the bra that is meant to hold the bra up, and it works... it just feels strange on me.

You can wear it in the standard bra fashion, with the straps just going over your shoulder. You can just use one strap, and have one strap stretched all the way out to wear halter neck style. Or, if you choose, you can wear this with the straps crisscrossing in the back. All of these methods are very comfortable for me.

The straps are completely adjustable, of course, which is excellent!

The closure on this bra is your standard hook and eye closure. There are 3 options for the closure settings, so you can pick the one that is most comfortable for you.
Experience
Packaging:
The bra didn't really come with any extensive plastic. It was simply wrapped in tissue paper, and then placed in a plastic bag. The packaging was simple, but it's nice enough.

I wish that the packaging was a bit firmer, as that would've kept the cups from getting misshapen. As it is, I think that the vibrators in my order must have laid on the cups, making strange indents

Quality:
For a $10.99 bra, the quality is good. That said, if I paid more, I'd be disappointed. The fact that the padding is so easily misshapen is a disappointment, but it's not the end of the world.

I give this a 3, taking of stars due to the padding issues, and the fact that this seems to be sized a bit small.
Follow-up commentary
I purchased this in 34DD, and I found that it fits me a bit better.

I do believe that the cups in this bra run a little bit small, but it's not too bad. I mean, I can squeeze myself into the 34D and still be comfortable, but the 34DD looks better.

    My padding was misshapen too! What is up with that? Other than that I do love the bra for the price. You can't get much of a better deal! It might not be my favorite bra ever, but it is pretty swell!!! Thanks for the review!

    I thought the sizing was small also. I like mine but the next one will be a size bigger. I also agree about the padding being the best..thanks for the review!!!
