This is a beautiful bra. Had my eye on it for what seems ages. Just couldn't press the add to cart for the $45 price tag. Then along comes a sale for $9 bucks and BAM, got it. For a bra that was made in China it has very good construction and brilliant gleaming chrome hardware for the straps. The straps are detachable as well as cross backable. There are cotton pockets inside the cups for these foam pushup pads sit in. The pads have to be at least an inch thick at the bottom and taper to the top. The cups are molded and have that pear like shape. There is a 3 hook and eye rear closure.
