I have purchased this bra several times in multiple colors and sizes. When I gained weight or lost weight, I would buy this bra in a different size and it would still work wonders. The very first time I bought this bra, it lasted about two years, maybe three. It is incredibly flattering in both the chest and the back. Compared to my others bras, I would say this might even make me look like I weigh less too! There really isn't much to say about this bra that is negative, other than I wouldn't recommend doing any gym related activity in it and you must, must, must hand wash every single time due to its delicate nature. I have literally become obsessed with this bra shape. I love the design...very stylish and sexy. If they ever stopped carrying it, I would be devastated.
