Just saw 6 Genie Bra's on sale A222729 is this a good deal. I always wanted to try these. Does anyone have these?
A co-worker of mine just bought one and didn't like it at all. She said it had no support and squished her boobs.
Oh, I wouldn't like that. I started sleeping in bra type tops and love the support. I thought these would be nice for that.
I have the genie bra. Super comfortable because it provides no real support. On me the bottom of the band rolls up constantly but I don't mind because I so seldom wear it. I use it as a sleep bra and I wear it sometimes under big baggy sweatshirts just to keep from flopping around. It would not be something I would wear under normal fitting clothes because the lack of support would be 'frighteningly' obvious
I actally like mine, but I am far from well endowed so that probably makes a difference. I wear a 34A in a normal bra and I wear the Genie with the pads so I don't get squished . . . It's super comfortable.

My mom tried them and hated them...said it was really uncomfortable, she sent them back.
The reviews on these are not that good

If you look online, most of the reviews for the genie bra aren't too good.
I just received these and was looking for a place to review them, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. Personally, I like them. I'm not well endowed(34A) and the many of the wired bras can become painful to wear, and make me look like I'm wearing falsies. The Genie bras make me look naturally endowed and are very comfortable. I had to have a pacemaker put in last year and the metal adjustment rings irritate the pacer bump on my chest. The Genie bra eliminates that issue. In short, I'm pleased.
They had different configurations of these bras before and the reviews were not good. I am not sure if they don't sell those particular items anymore so removed the reviews but they were quite a few of them a few weeks ago.
I love them. I'm a 36 B and purchased the small size from Walgreens ($19 for a 2-pack) so I don't feel the Q price is exceptional at all. Very comfortable bra with a little support with the pads in. Without them, zero support. Don't size "up" because that will cause them to roll up. I believe these are good for C cup and smaller sizes only.
Thanks CAshopper2011, Walgreens sounds real good, right down the street and no S&H.
I like the Rhona Shear Bras better, I wear her RacerBack every single day, love it!
I have Rhonda Sheer's ahhhhh bras and I use them mainly for exercise @ the gym. They are great for that and if your just hanging around the house. I would need more support for other places like church or work or some event. But otherwise, it works well and I am a 38D.

I have ordered and cancelled these bras several times....I want to try them...but not sure of the sizing...according to the chart I should be ordering a xl/1x.....but I don't see something that small pulling up over my 3x body to get to my b o o b s....so I ordered the 3x, yet again....now if I don't cancel...again...I will give a review....
I have looked for them locally but they are usually small sizes....
So, I am a 38C, and I like them. They actually give me fair support, but the bottom does roll up occasionally. For an everyday bra, I like it. It also gives a nice cami effect in the black and white, so it was a good deal for me.
Zero support, waste of money--that's my review.
$20 for a black and nude at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Might be worth a try........
Recommends to "size up"
Are the pads removeable? I'm pretty small & like the Barely There bras but i'm curious about these too.
I LIKE THEM BUT AS FAR AS SUPPORT/NADA. I WEAR 42DD/SO SAYS THE SALES LADY THAT MEASURE ME. I WEAR A XL-1X AND IT WAAS BIG ENOUGH
BJ/JUST THE WAY I AM
i did not care for them, like slot of others said, they kept riding up, and you cannot be shopping and try to adjust your bra!!!
I don't see how those can give my girls any support..and I don't like the idea of those inserts...what is with that anyway?? I guess I like more feminine, sexier bras, even though in my size they are hard to find.
The inserts are removable, but I leave them in for support. They are good for me under t-shirts and I actually wear the black one under lower cut tops for the cami effect too. I think the bb&b or Walgreens 2-packs are the way to start, and get the Q six-pack only if you love them. It seems women love em or hate em and I love em.
I am a 36D and I got an Ahhhh Bra. Very comfy but not real supportive IMO. I will be wearing it mostly around the house or to sleep in. Not enough support for work or dress up. I would never work out in it.
I ordered the large in these & sent them back for the xl/1x. I wear a 38c in regular bras, which don't fit right but if i go smaller than the regular bar is too tight & the cups too small.
I pulled the genie bra over my head with no problem. I can't imagine trying to get them up my body to get around my chest. With the large I had arm fat pushing up on the sides & a little back fat showing around the back area so I figured I needed a larger size.
If these don't fit then I will send these back & that will be the end of the genie bra.
