I was in a department store trying on bras explaining to the staff that I find bras very uncomfortable only being an A cup. She said to try one of these and I did and it's the best bra I've worn, I hardly notice it's on. I rarely get home now and throw off bras now. I followed her advice and went for the size smaller than the manufacturer says, so I got a small instead of a med. Good advice. I've looked for these locally but can't find any so have just got another couple on this website again going for the next size down. The pad comes loose but can be manipulated back into place though I find it a pain sometimes hence the 4 stars instead of 5.
