Not sure what the other reviewers were talking about but this bra is the perfect supportive bra. The bands are thicker than usual and very soft but somehow supportive and breathable. Perfect if you have some side fat/underarm jiggle going on, it just holds it all in - better than underwire bras. I have also washed this twice and still fits beautifully. I'm just amazed at how well this pulls everything in, and I have even worn it as a sports bra. The lace is also a bonus and looks like a tank top underneath if it happens to peek out the top of your cami accidentally. I don't even like Pennington bras all that much and prefer additionelle. This one is definitely a keeper though and I'll be buying more of this!
