I've been wearing Alana bras for years, they're the best shape and support for me, but they always had one major issue: the little lacy loops decorating the underbust band. They're so stiff and dig painfully into the body for weeks whenever I got a brand new bra. The breaking in period was awful and always made me hesitate to replace my bras when I needed new ones.
Finally, the new design that came in recently has gotten rid of the damn loops!! I got an Alana in every colour introduced since, it's SO COMFORTABLE without the darn loops. I know folks have had issues with the straps but honeslty, I haven't noticed a difference at all.
Bravissimo, by all means fix the straps but please don't bring the loops back!! And please let me buy the all black/all white/all cream versions in the new design with no loops!!!
