I am 55 years old and not only is this the first bra I have ever owned that fit me absolutely perfectly (or even close), it is also the first pretty bra I've ever owned. Being a 30F, 55 years old and always having lived in rural areas, I never even knew I could get bras in my size. Rarely could I even find a size 32 bra and often put up with 34 C's when I'm actually a 30 F.
I'm a little fuller on the bottom and not as much on top. Being a little older, I tend to have a little bit of "flab" in my underarm area. This bra still looks wonderful. I can wear it all day long and never even think twice about it. No underwire poking (even though it has one), no stretching out by the end of the day leaving me squirming or tugging it back into place.
I bought my first of this bra about one and a half years ago, immediately followed by a second nude, and a black and a white one. I've never before in my life bought more than two bras at a time because I never liked them and was always hoping something in my size might turn up.
I am not one to be fussing and mussing with my clothes, and never will. I throw them in the washing machine and dryer with all my other clothes, although I choose other similar colored and lightweight clothes to go in with them. As I mentioned I have had my first batch at least a year and a half and maybe closer to two years. I tend to only wear the black bra once or twice a month. The other three I alternate through the week. As far as I can tell they all look just as good as the first day I bought them and do not feel stretched out or ratty looking at all from the machine washing and drying. And I don't even put them in any kind of laundry bag. Of course the white one is not quite as white and bright as the day I bought it, but that is to be expected, at least with my machine washing and drying, although I only wash it with other whites.
It recently occurred to me that they might discontinue this style, so I decided I'd better order some more although I am not near to needing new ones yet. So I ordered three nude, two white and two black so I should be set for a few more years. In the meantime I'm going to experiment with trying to find some of my size bras in some pretty colors which I never was able to do all my life! I'm even about to order one of those baby doll items with the fitted cup tops! So cute! I"ve never ever had anything like that. My husband used to tease me about the flannel nightgowns I used to wear and he would try to bring me home pretty loungerie, always to see what I meant when even the xtra small was huge on me and he had to return it since there was nothing smaller. ( I'm only 4'10" and 90 lb.) I might be a little old for the things I should have been wearing in my 20's and 30's, but I don't care. I've still got a pretty good figure and I'm going to have fun with it! And I'm pretty sure my husband isn't going to complain after the girls flannel nightgowns I've been wearing all these years! :-) Anyway, these bras are great as an everyday bra, or to feel pretty in for an evening out. Probably would need a different style though if you like very low cut clothes.
I do need to find something to wear with thinner, form fitting tops since this bra does show a little bit of lines in something like that, but it's not too bad until I find something I like for those types of clothes. At 55 I don't wear that type of thing as much anyway. I cannot imagine anyone regretting owning these! Of course even though I'm an F cup, my girls obviously aren't as large as someone who is simply a larger, or normal sized person, so perhaps these bras might not be supportive enough for a much larger person, but for someone petite to small I would think they would be great!
