I bought this bra trying to replace my favorite old t-shirt bra. It's very stiff! I thought washing it and adding a bit of fabric softener would help, but it didn't. Since it's wire free, the band is very wide and there are 5 eyehooks. I don't like this part. I'm only a 40D, and I don't think this bra needed to be reinforced the way it is. All of my other bras only have 3 hooks. I'm not a fan of the mesh material used to make the sides of the bra. It would be alot more comfortable by using a silky material.
