Le Mystère Signature Comfort Racerback Front Close Underwire Bra
Straps don't fully adjust for sizes >= F
I bought this in an E and F. The F's straps were wider and only adjusted through about 1/3 of the strap. Doesn't work for we full-figured ladies who aren't 6 feet tall. Also, the cups pulled weirdly for me on this, so that the inner bottom parts puckered out. When I pulled the straps out of the racerback position onto my shoulders, this stopped. Weird.

Didn't work for me
I loved the idea of this bra, especially the sturdy front clasp and inset straps, but I could not find a cup/band combination that worked for me. I'm normally a 34DD or E, but that size was too small in the cups and too large in the band, so I sized down to a 32 band and up to an F cup. That didn't work either -- cups covered everything but came up too high, while shoulder straps could not be adjusted to work for me. I find the Chantelle is a better fit for me in this style and the padding is minimal, which helps when you're big like me.

Poorly made, especially considering the price
This bra was flimsy at best. There are three hooks which connect in the front. It was very difficult to hook these, and the middle hook kept coming undone. I sent this bra back, and I am out $6.95 for the shipping.

A front-close bra with a simple, sturdy closing mechanism
after searching for a front-close bra that *doesn't* have a flimsy plastic closure, i think i've found the bra that comes closest to ideal. the closing mechanism is simple but sturdy: a hook-and-eye closure that has kept traditional bras fastened for years. i don't anticipate that the closing mechanism will fail anytime in the future, but if it does, the repair would entail a trip to the fabric store for a hook-and-eye closure and a few minutes of hand sewing. the bra is well constructed all-over, gives very good support, and pretty much disappears under stretchy/thin shirts.
this bra is more expensive than others i have purchased, but i've already spent a non-trivial sum on bras with flimsy, plastic fasteners. the price is worth it to me for a functional, durable, front-close bra.

I absolutely love this bra. comfortable, supportive, and it even fits me pretty well (I had to buy a 38F because they didn't go up to FF) i'm going to buy the black one soon. and i love the front closure.
