I am so tired of wires poking thru my bras. I have always been large busted, but have a small chest, so finding the right size for me has been very hard...most just don't carry or even make 34DDs. BTW, I have had a mastectomy, and this bra will hold my prosthesis and support my other breast so they both look 'natural'. #I hate mastectomy bras...none have supported me right.# I, too, have found bras in the past that get discontinued, so I was so happy to find this bra, and with NO wire. I love the satin cups, they seem to hold up so much better in the wash and keep their shape...I do wash them in the machine, but NEVER put them in the dryer. The cups 'cover' all of me and doesn't smash me like some did. The comfort straps are great #for holding up the weight#. I hope they are NEVER discontinued. #I tried other 18-hours in the past, but they didn't fit like this one does now.# And, you cannot find this size in the local stores...probably not a good seller. I am a senior citizen, and love they way they 'lift' up my sagging body.
