I have fibromyalgia and among my symptoms is very tender bones, and an easily pained ribcage which means that despite my ample bosom *lol*, I absolutely can not wear bras with underwire anymore -- the pain is just too completely distractingly unbearable. I've found a few okay wireless bras made in poland, but nothing as awesome as this! I'm a smaller fat babe and, for me, the super firm elastic on the band is PERFECT because it's staying in place and thus helping to minimize back rolls, which I'm sure it what it's intended to do. I love the lace, I love the position of the straps, I love the firmness of the cups. I could easily buy a whole bunch more and make this my every-day bra. I was even able to do a few yoga poses in it -- AMAZING!!!!! a bralette without jello jiggle. Who knew????? Helpful hint: Step into this bra and pull it up over your waist like shapewear; don't try to pull it over your head. Addition Elle -- please keep this in your catalogue FOREVER!!!
