SPANX Bra-llywood Hills Side Slimming Underwire Bra
If you are full busted forget this bra.
May 1, 2013
I purchased this bra with the goal of eliminating the dreaded back/side fat issue. It was effective in providing a relatively smooth side and back line, although the overall fit was very snug, which resulted in tissue being pushed above/below the band. I typically wear a 34C, but I am a small C and occasionally find that I don't fill out the cups. In this case, I was spilling over the top of the cup, which cut in on the top of my breast, creating a second bulge of tissue. I would need to size up to get a good fit and didn't like the style well enough to warrant ordering a different size.

Runs small, order one cup size larger!
I tried on all the Spanx model bras they had in my size at the department store and this one was the ONE. It wasn't even the right size and I knew it was awesome. I wear a 34D in every other brand but needed to order a 34 DD in this one. Thank goodness Bare Necessities had the right size. It lifts, separates, and brings the girls out front where they belong. The padding is minimal but very effective, and it is in no way dowdy like other bras in this size. Also, I'm not sure why no one else has mentioned this, but the metal clips that attach the straps to the front twist and dig in. I solved this by stitching them down, but for the price I shouldn't have to do this. For what it's worth, other brands do this, too. Why would they use metal in this delicate area? That said, it's my number one pick and will order more. You won't be sorry.

Smooth look with great support
I like the smooth look that this bra gives, especially when I choose to wear a T-shirt. I appreciate the adjustable back fastener and shoulder straps for a great and slimming fit.

Makes me feel like a teenager
At first glance, this bra doesn't look that special. When I put it on, though, it really felt great. I'm not that big (36 B), just a little saggy. This bra makes my bust look firm and lifted up. Very smooth under clothing. Also, good quality fabric and construction.
