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.

      The fit is my favorite thing about this bra. The best thing is the straps don't fall off my shoulder.

          Comments about Smooth Caress Underwire Bra:

          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.

              Comments about Smooth Caress Underwire Bra:

              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!!!!!!

              Comments about Smooth Caress Underwire Bra:

              Would be my favorite bra due to fit and comfort but unfortunately the quality of the wire is very poor. Wire breaks easily even with hand washing bra only. Also have had problems with the wire going through seams.

                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.

                  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!

                        I have bought this bra for many years since discovering Avenue stores, however a few years back something happened to their quality and this bra is a perfect example. These bras lasted for years and I bought them in every color, but the last time I bought a whole slew of them, the underwire snapped in most of them within a few months or it pops through the material at the edges. Please make them the way they were before or lower the price to equal the quality.

Now I find that the underwire snaps easily and pokes through, and the material under the underwire that rests on the skin is scratchy after a few washes,. Please go back to using better quality materials otherwise I will have to look elsewhere for my bras.

                            I have worn this bra for years and absolutely loved it! The bra still looks the same but by no means is, the quality and fit are completely different and I am at a loss of where to go from here! I'm glad to hear others are having the same issues and it's not just me! Hoping the manufacturer will see all the negative reviews and bring the wonderful bra back!!'

                                I used to buy these bras in Avenue stores, and I loved them. They used to be made of good quality, thick, stretchy material, comfortable and with great support. When they closed the store near me, I thought I would be able to buy the same bra online. Although the picture looks the same, it is not the same bra. The material is thinner, doesn't stretch the same way, and is rough. It used to be a GREAT bra, now it is barely OKAY. I will now have to look for another great stretch bra.
                                Why do companies change great products?

                                    For years & years, these were the only bras I bought. They were comfortable and durable, they looked good and supported well. I was shocked to see the difference in what they are selling now. Cheap fabric. Not finished well. Not worth buying.

                                    It may look the same in the photograph but it's not the same quality as it was.

                                      I have finally found a bra that fits! Very comfortable. Can wear with anything.

                                          I am very disappointed. I have worn this style exclusively for years and really loved it. I still like the style, but I just bought 3 new ones and the inside lining has changed. It is very itchy and uncomfortable. It is also a different color, but that doesn't cause me a problem. Also, the wire digs into my underarm. I have bought this very style and size before, so it isn't because of the size. Of course, I made sure they all fit before washing them, but I didn't know they would be itchy and uncomfortable. Now, I obviously cannot return them.

                                          I was skeptical about the interior fabric at first, because it is a rougher texture than nylon. I buy seamless bras because my nipples are irritated by seams. But the fabric didn't irritate them.

                                          I love the look of these bras. Single-ply nylon is not enough to provide any modesty under today's knits. This bra, with it's thicker interior fabric, is a good solution. BUT I found the underwires to cause minor discomfort that developed into actual dull pain in my underarms!

                                          Although I like the look, I have to send them back. ;(
