    I've worn Victoria's Secret bras for years now. I found one I liked and bought about 10 of them. Then they were going to discontinue them and put them on sale so I bought 5 or 6 more I'm just now starting to wear the last of them. I hate to think of schlepping around finding another bra I like so I think I'll just wear these as long as I can.

    I didn't know they had zip up ones. I tried them from QVC and they were not for me!! Back they went but I am glad I got to see what all the hoopla was all about.

    My 86 year old Mom bought a couple 6 months ago and LOVES them. No zipper- she has bad arthritis in her fingers and this bra makes it so easy for her. She's sold!!

    Thanks so much for this info. I might have found a new source for bras! I'm running low and need to get a few more but can't find a style like this anywhere on the planet. Have been wearing this style for years and just can't do traditional anymore. Finding supportive, comfortable and relatively stylis bras just seems next to impossible and almost as torturous as buying a bathing suit once you're over 25!

I buy front close bras from Walmart....not zipper, but hook/eye...4/5, well made, give good shape, and come in lovely colors, and most of all not expensive........
    you should try stepping into it and pulling it up it is much easier then trying to get it over your head.

    well, I know someone that bought some and she loved them...at first.
    I don't know if you are supposed to hand wash them, but she said her's
    wouldn't support after washing, so i've never bought one.

    From my experience, hand washing is not necessary for the Genie (non-zipper) bra. ! I wash mine in the machine in cold water, and dry in the dryer with a Delicate setting. Mine last a very long time----my oldest is about three

    For almost fifty years I have worn Bali underwire bras exclusively (until I found the Genie). Like some others, I put mine on by pulling it up from my feet rather than over my head. But that's just me.


    Really, bra fit and comfort is personal to the wearer. We differ in the brands and types we prefer, because our bodies are different. If you find a bra to suit you, whatever the brand or type, you have done a good thing!

    Bras and fitting them is so individual. Love my Wacoals.

    What I'm wondering is, those of you that are happy with the Genie's,
    are you "big" women?

    You're right on Lane Bryant. Their best selling bra is a life saver for my bad back - hardly know I have it on.
