I design and sew alot of clothing so confidently can purchase my bras online. I always measure myself prior to purchase because fluctuations.. I've heard and read a lot of great reviews about this bra. I needed a black bra so decided time to try one for myself. Most bras hurt and or are extremely uncomfortable because I have alot of keloid scarring from a non breast related surgery. Anyways the size I ordered was a bit too large so I exchanged it. I had a difficult time finding my size in store. The employee who ended up helping me told me that these bras literally fly off the shelf between customers and employees. I am sure that most ladies who adore this bra are aware that there is a new version which I didn't know. Somehow when I bought mine online I bought the original version. After trying on a few different sizes in the change room I was puzzled because they didn't feel quite the same as the one I returned. Still fantastic but not as awesome. Thankfully the lady helping me found one original left but in purple. Purple isn't exactly my thing but no way was I going to leave without it. Being there was a sale I also bought the new version in black. I'd have purchased 5 of the originals had they been in stock. Super happy with both although in the future hopefully I can find more of the first gen bras. I am beyond thankful to find a bra that doesn't sit where my scars are and one that I could actually sleep in! Thanks AddtionElle and please keep making the original!
