Goddess Audrey Wire-Free Bra
The sides are very uncomfortable
While this is supposed to be wire-free, it almost feels as if there are wires on the sides of the bra. The bottom pokes me and has made permanent marks in my skin.

I used to wear Elila brand bras, but decided to switch because they did not hold up long. I wear a 36-N in this bra and am 5'3". I have hand washed the bra 3 times so far.
The good: I like the fabric, it is very sturdy and I think it will hold up for a while. It has good coverage and I like that the straps are adjustable without the flappy strap thing like my Elila bras.
The bad: I have only had the bra a month. I started wearing it on the loosest hook on day one. That was not tight enough, so I moved it to the middle set of hooks. That was ok for two weeks, but the very top hook is starting to pull out already.
I moved to the tightest setting and now that top hook is starting to pull out. I have that problem on many bras, so it must be how I am built.
I am only 5"3 so the first week I was sore under the arm where the boning is. It is a ton of coverage on the side for a short person. I have to wear the strap pulled as tight as it will go to keep the girls up and in place.
I have ordered Goddess before so I knew the cups fit me small and ordered up a cup size from what I usually order. I am glad I ordered up a size, otherwise it would have been too small.
The padding on the straps is not helpful and just seems to get in the way. It twists all over the place and is a pain to get straight. I am going to cut them off tonight.
The only thing I would change right now would be the hooks. They need to really sew those things in well! I get tired of doing my own repairs after a few weeks wear.
All that being said, I would still order it again. Bras are hard to find in my size so it is better than most I have tried.

Great other than strap padding
I like the bra other than it runs a little small, my biggest issue is that the padding on the shoulder straps never stays in place! It doesn't do any good so I just ended up cutting them off as they are more annoying as they never stay on my shoulder.
