    has anyone tried the Genie bras? i have some similar slip over ones and they certainly don't do what the t.v. ad says theirs does. just wondered. i happen to hate bras.
    i did get some Gilligan Omalley camisoles at Target with built in ones that work well but are hot for summer.

    I was wondering about them, too.

    They certainly looked awesome - but I need buckets, not mini-teacups.

    I was interested in them also, including the Ahhh Bra which I think is almost the same thing.

    Here's what I found online about the Genie bra.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: It would be nice if the designers could come up with a great comfortable bra for larger sizes.

    Yes, I sucked up the money and bought some. Whoa!!! Not for this C! They might be good for AAs. One of those things that will lay in a drawer forever.:)

    What's with all of these formed bra's. You hang out in the middle and being a 34D, I certainly do not need a push up pad but you can't find a bra with out them. I had some nice lace bra's from Victorias Secret for $39.95 each. have worn them for 3 years, very comfortable but now they don't carry them anymore.

    I am so glad someone has posted about these bras. I was so tempted to buy them. I have very tender skin from cancer and regular bras hurt and chafe. Guess a sport bra is my best bet.
    Thank you for posting this. I won't waste my money.

    There was a topic about this awhile back, but I don't know what all was posted. You might do a search.

    I looked at them. Too bad they don't have adjustable straps, I need them.

    Even for us with nothing. Boy are those things uncomfortable.

    My sister bought some and had to keep ordering up on the size. She hasn't received her last replacement order yet. But she said you need to go up several sizes.

    After searching for decades for a comfortable and a FITTING bra, finally found one. It is found on HerRoom website. Truly the AH Bra!

    Infomercials are big ripoffs. I just sit and chuckle, because if it is one thing you can depend on it is the:

    I bought the AHHH bra and PLEASE , PLEASE don't waste you money. They have no support, they roll-up, they bind, etc.,etc. Does that sound like the voice of experience?

    Right now, I am trying new Playtex that claims the straps want fall off your shoulders. Which is one of my main complaints, they do not even slide. They are wonderful. Have had one for a couple of months and will buy more.

    I have something similar my sister got me. OK but not very supportive. Has anyone tried making their own? There are patterns out there, I think Kwit Sew?
