Comments about Smooth Caress Underwire Bra:

Bought this bra a couple of years ago and loved it the first time I put it on. As a plus sized lady, I had trouble finding a bra that was comfortable and provided adequate support. The first one I bought I was sold. It was comfortable, fit well and provided good support. I then ordered several getting one in each color. A few months ago I had to order new bras, and re-ordered this bra, again in several colors. I was sorely disappointed. The quality of construction and materials has changed. The new bras don't feel comfortable to wear, and 3 of them the underwire has split through the seams. I have had to repair the seams in order to wear the bra. I hand wash each of them and they do not go in the dryer..and the bras are still falling apart. I will not purchase these again.

      I hope avenue is taking notes on what's going on with this bra. Like the others, I loved this bra. But it is too expensive to have it last for a short time. You are losing bra customers. My old stand by is not there any more.

        Comments about Smooth Caress Underwire Bra:

        I was really surprised to read the reviews about the poor quality of this bra, as it's the one I've worn for many years. I purchased it anyway. Within about 10 minutes of wearing it for the first time, I had an underwire poking me in the neck! This bra is so poorly made! Had I not already thrown the packaging away, I would have returned it immediately. Instead, I stitched it up myself. Really disappointing.

            Comments about Smooth Caress Underwire Bra:

            I have a high rib cage and cannot have a high center cut bra. This one provides comfort and a low center band. I am a 46DDD and this provides the support I need. Nice looking bra, not like many that look matronly. I have been buying this bra for years. I do not know how long a bra should last but these last about nine months before I feel I need a new one. I rotate my bras (2-3) during the week and wash and hang every week. I hope this helps explain my comments/rating.

                    I have worn this bra for years and have been very satisfied with my many purchases until the last year or so. The fit and comfort are still as always. The quality has deteriorated badly. Now the wires come through the top seam quickly and there is nothing to be done other than discarding the bra. There used to be four hooks in back but now there are three. We full figure ladies need that extra width. The fabric lining has changed to be not nearly as nice. It has a rough feeling to it. I feel very sorry about this. if Avenue had retained the original quality of this bra, I would be buying it for the rest of my life. Now I will look elsewhere.

                        Horribly disappointed! I've owed literally dozens of this exact bra style. However, the manufacturer has changed the fabric/fit. It is now a synthetic-feeling fabric, rather than the soft, cottony-feeling fabric it used to be. This has also changed the way the bra fits.

                        The cup size now has less "give" making it too small-- though my own size has not changed a bit, the new bras no longer fit.

                        The quality feels substantially lessened.

                        All my new bras I ordered are going back because of this. I'm going to have to limp along with my old bras until I find a comparable (to the old style) bra to replace my worn out ones. Terribly inconvenient, since I used to be able to buy this style without even trying on, knowing that they'd be my stand-by perfect fit.

                        BRING BACK THE OLD STYLE!!!!!!

                          These used to be my favorite bras, but I agree with the other reviews. Something happened a year or two ago, and the bras are no longer the same. They ride up; the underwires break, sometimes within a wearing or two, or the wires poke through the fabric. I'm so sad because these used to fit, feel, and wear wonderfully.

                          Bra straps stay up.
                          Underwire always breaks no matter how well you take care of bra.

                            Comments about Smooth Caress Underwire Bra:

                            I have bought these Bra's for years and years because these WERE the best...but because of the change in material/quality I can no longer stand to wear them. They itch and they ride up in the back and that was one of the BIG reason's I bought these bra's is because that didn't happen before! They no longer hold me up like they used to. It's really sad because now I have to look for a NEW bra and that is NEVER an easy process!
