      Comments about Smooth Caress Underwire Bra:

      As the others have stated, have loved these bras for years...my "go to" in several colors. Yes over time they would wear out and the underwire would come through the seam either in the middle front area or side. Occasionally one would break. But that was over a considerable period of time of washing/wearing. While I realize Avenue wants to make money, the speed with which these bras now fall apart is ridiculous. Not only does the underwire come out, but the band begins to roll up pretty quickly during wear too. My size has not changed, but the quality of this product sure has. I highly recommend dear Avenue that you rethink your strategy of cutting corners on this product and bring back the quality and craftsmanship that made me and many other women wear this bra in relief that we found a good fit and style. I will not continue to flush good money down the bra toilet any longer.

              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.

                  This has been my go to bra for many years. I am disappointed that now 2 out of three bras had underwire poke through fabric before the third wearing.

                    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.

                        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.

                                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.
