    Default Anyone tried an Ahhh Bra or something similar?

    Has any ladies bought one of these bras off the tv? I am wanting to know what it's like and if they do work.
    I think there is also one similar called the Genie Bra.
    Curious to know if worth getting

    I've googled the reviews for it myself and the general consensus is.. DON'T!

    Apparently they lose shape very quickly, have no support and are a design which only allows you to wear high shirts (not low cut or singlet tops) as the neck is to high and the shoulders are wide.

    I suppose maybe as a sleep bra or something, or an 'around the house' bra thing.... but I haven't read anything positive.

    Ambra have a very similar style except it is lower cut. It's very comfy and gives nice shape.

    Eating in mind I have dinky boobs.

    it's like a Stocking for your boobies!

    Being an I cup I know mine wouldn't be good for much. I only bought them for post op recovery, they were delayed and didn't arrive till a month after the operation I was annoyed as they where apparently being sent from the next suburb and took 2 months.

    They are still good for hot pajama days as they prevent sweat rash and don't constrict.

    I got some today

    I like them, so comfy! Agree that they don't have a heap of support though - they have a little, but not a lot.

    I bought them because it is almost impossible to find plus size maternity bras unless it's online and I don't want to risk spending $60 on an ugly bra for it to not fit right.
