Rated 5 out of 5 by hextraordinary13 Best Bra I've ever owned - straps & back a 10!
Straps never slip unlike front-hook Playtex 18 hr. bras I have bought in the past. I have sloping shoulders and *always* had trouble with the front'closure wire-free Playtex 18 hr bra. After a lumpectomy, removal of a sentinel lymph node and subsequent chemo and radiation, I desperately needed a front-hook bra that had FULL side coverage as that was where the surgery on my left breast was performed. This bra fit the bill 100%. My husband took the initiative and drove out to an outlet mall just to buy me two of these bras when I was so sick from chemo and it was the best decision he ever made for me! This is my go-to bra. It is so comfortable, I can even wear it to bed when the pain in my breast doesn't warrant sleeping bra-less.
SUGGESTION: Only thing I might suggest is a nice THIN soft COTTON lining to the satin cups to be even more comfortable. Now, I'm not talking a padded bra at all -- just a soft, thin cotton lining would make the satin cups cooler as it tends to be a little hot in the summer is all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Heather Didn't love....
I bought these on a whim. I HATE bra shopping and ordered these sight unseen (stupid!). They did run true to size and covered everything well, I just didn't like the way the straps came together at the front. It made it rub every time you moved either arm forward at all. Not comfy and returned. Serves me right - who orders a bra w/o 1st trying it on. My fault! :-P

Rated 5 out of 5 by ETXLady Love this bra!
I have worn Playtex 18 hour bras for decades. But, recently I started having problems with my shoulder which made fastening the bra in the back very uncomfortable. So, I tried the Playtex 18 hour Front-Close with Flex Back and I am so glad I did. From the first time I put the bra on, I wore it all day long without any discomfort (which is typical of the 18 hour bra) with very little pain to fasten it. I could not be happier with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leswa Best bra ever
I absolutely love this bra. It's front closure is great. Its the only front closure bra worth buying of any size. the straps are soft and the back support holds up really well. It's great for handicapped too! I've bought this bra for many years now. Love that it comes in black too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sind1950 Disappointed bra not a single in larger sizes. That said the cup edges cuts into my under arms. Have never seen the back crisscross. Not too happy with it because it is flimsy fabric that seems to roll on the edges. Hope it doesn't show thru my clothes. Plan to buy smaller bra next time and cut back and add my own elastic. Can't be worse. Just because I'm large fat woman doesn't mean my breast are huge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Prunelli Great features & comfort!!
I bought these replacement bras for my Mom. She now resides in a rest home & we try to give her all the comforts she requests. She has worn this particular style bra for a long time & had REALLY needed new ones badly for months. She was absolutely thrilled when I placed these in her hands!! All I have to do these days is simply mention her new undergarments & her face lights up. She could do a commercial!!!
