Solid & animal print reversible plunge bra
Great concept... Not really practical...
So first I must say, I kept the bra and did not return it. It is really beautiful! The colors totally "POP"! Wow! Yes, they do! Style got a 5, but if they had a practicality option it would have got a one. I washed the bra in cold water and the red managed to work its way into the leopard pattern. It isn't horrible, but I shouldn't even be saying that. These bras cost a lot of money, so I do have expectations for a product. To be honest, I do not want to deal with returning them to encounter the sales-woman at the Store in the mall. I always have a bad experience. The whole customer service concept is lacking there. I have a credit card, I spend a lot of $ on these bras, and if they had the sizes available in the store that actually fit me, I would buy them there. Lets be realistic though, the size or color I really want is rarely available in the store so I am forced to order online. So why do I always get so much attitude when I need to return items that do not fit? Not to mention there is a fee assessed for restocking. On to the rest of the review. As for fit, the whole front closure thing is beautiful (silver piece) but not practical for a plunge or when taking time into account, since it stretches out very quickly. The girls were not at all supported unless the straps were criss-crossed. It is advertised as convertible so I want it to work in all of the advertised arrangements. So why did I keep it considering the review is like a D- ? It has some potential. We will see if the potential ends up being worth what I spent on it. I will not be buying a second one though.

Great for under halter bathing suits
So I originally bought this bra for its "intended" use, and although comfortable, not too great as an everyday bra. since it was thin and low cut, I would reserve it for when I needed to layer with a cami for really low cut outfits.
However, my love affair with this bra is at the Beach. My body shape loves halter top bathing suits, flatters me way more than any other type. But being a DD/DDD my girls need more support than halter top bathing suits can offer. One day, I decided to try on a bathing suit with this bra underneath, and voila! Problem solved!!! Provides enough support to not break my neck tying the bathing suit straps so tight, and the material in this bra is thin enough that it will dry out in about the same time as the rest of you bathing suit. Yet, it is also thick enough to provide coverage. It also holds them in place a bit more securely, so I am a bit more confident there will be no wardrobe malfunctions during water activities. It is also a very low cut bra, so it is not noticeable AT ALL under the bathing suit even with really plunging suits, and the strap on the bra blends in with the strap of the suit. I am back on the website now to stock up on a few, seeing that the options are now more limited from how they used to be. it is so discrete under the suit, that I really don't care this is a red and leopard print bra...since I can just change the strap to black, white, nude, even clear if I need to. In all honesty, given thick enough bathing suit straps (which are pretty much standard in most plus-sized suits) this bra may be able to be used with other styles, although I cannot speak to that since I have only tried it with halter style. Please do not sop making this bra!!!
Hope this review is helpful so some of you!

This is a really fun bra - fits well, very comfortable - haven't tried it reversed, but I love the leopard print. The plunge is great for those low cut, sexy tops!
