Like many others on here, this used to be my go to bra, always quality, always comfortable and the toughest wires in the business. I bought two in nude recently, one I had to repair constantly until it ripped down the middle of the cup for no reason, the other is still going but I now have to wear an elasticated extender on the back and straps to keep the arm straps together until my bra resembles some sort of harness, It's not comfortable and is a relief to take off at the end of the day. The wires have stuck into my armpit so much I have sore bits there. It doesn't help that they have changed the extenders to the bottom of the arm straps so they're always bunched up and not doing their job. Why is nobody taking any notice of all of these reviews? And what alternative is there - Bravissimo's own brand just aren't as strong despite being designed by a company that purports to specialise in bras for bigger boobs!! My bras are always handwashed so there's no excuse for this.
