I usually buy my bras from Lane Bryant/Cacique. But since these 2 stores are related I felt confident in purchasing this balconnette bra from Avenue. Boy was I mistaken!! The quality is no where close to those I have gotten from Cacique! The proportion is all wrong and there is simply very little support. The straps are way too stretchy and thin. The bra actually seems to get bigger in the straps and the underband as I wear it. The cups are too close together. This bra - all in all - does not seem to be designed for a full figured woman! I am so terribly disappointed!!!!!
