Anyone tried the Milana Bra? (just saw an infommercial & it's made by Genie--looks like an improved version)

Hi Girls!

I just saw an infommercial for the Milana Bra (milanabra dot com) & am wondering if anyone's tried it?

If so, what are your thoughts? It looks to be a better quality & more supportive version of the original Genie bra (and Ahh bra). Cost is $60 (3 pmts of $19) for 3 bras.

Thanks so much!

Thinking this might be brand new so maybe that's why nobody has tried it yet?

Hi Ladies...Just want to say that I know nothing about the "milana bra" BUT the BEST comfort bra I have found for my 40DD girls is Rhonda Shear's new version of the AHHH Bra. Its double the thickness of her first version and its terrific! Very comfortable and I don't hesitate wearing it anywhere...with or without the modesty pads. Just bought another 3 pack this week-end...this time she has one with an embossed pattern and they are reversible. Love 'em!

I saw she was on but did not see these. Do you have the item number?

I should not even ask. If I buy the bras, it will by my 4th order from HSN today{#emotions_dlg.blush}

Betteb-Thanks again for sharing color choices! For some reason I'm drawn to the navy/ivory combo. Did you find out about this through the Insider? I just subscribed to it but haven't received any issues yet. Thanks!

flanlgirl, are you referring to the comfort support bras by Rhonda Shear? I thought her first iteration was a bit lightweight so maybe these will give me the support I was looking for all along. I love the Genie bras with the modesty pads, I'll need to take another look at hers. Thanks for the info - I don't typically watch her.

I've even tried the underwire by Rhonda Shear and none of these seem to have enough support for me. So they are sweatshirt/around the house bras only.

I mostly just wear them around the house too and for sleeping. I am more comfortable if I corral the girls at night.{#emotions_dlg.blush}

I am gonna give the lace version a try though. Looks like they would be cute under a low cut top.

I just received my 2 Milana Bras today. The sizing instructions for the bra were way off. I usually wear a 42B and ordered a 1X in the bra. (I recalled that the Genie bra was way too tight for me -- especially in the shoulders.) I am returning the Milana bras for a 3X. I hope this size will give me room to breathe.

I ordered them when they were the TSV last week but they haven't arrived yet. I like the original ones, so if these are as good as those, I'll be happy.

I have recieved mine and I agree. The sizing is off. I am a 40D. They mashed me flat!!

I really dislike the term "uni boob" but that is exactly what I got with this one. I'm not sure whether I am going to exchange or return.

I've never tried Genie or Ahh bra's so the TSV Milana bras were my first purchase. I don't know how they differ from the original. Re sizing, I followed the sizing instructions and mine fit. I wear 34C and the instructions say 34 is size S but if the cup size is C or larger to go up to a medium which I did. They're very comfortable so I may try some others. This particular style will work nicely under low cut tops in place of a cami.

I missed the Milana bras when they were a TSV so thank you, girlies, for bringing them to my attention. After a couple of sizing mistakes with the Ahh I have become a big fan of this bra style. Rhonda Shear was fond of saying 'shop your top' -- which did not work for me at all. As a D cup I now know that I had to size up two sizes for the Ahh to give me both the support and shape I like. Once I found my fit, I got it all: round, youthful look and comfort. The wrong size smashed me flat into an uncomfortable uniboob. I am really hoping that the Milana fits as well. The lace cami look will be a great addition to my wardrobe. Fingers crossed!

2 sizes up for me as well, I am a 38 C and wear the 2X in Ahh and Genie.

I am a 34 D and I wear the M in the regular Genie bra very comfortably. I am really a little smaller than a 34, though, probably a 33.

However, I ordered that size in the Breezies underwire one they had recently and it was a joke. It looked like a training bra. I sent it back immediately.

I haven't received the Milana bra yet, but I'll let you know, because it's very hard to order bras without trying them on.

LOVE these bras. Never tried them before but I'm sold now for sure. Now I'm also interested in the Ahh bra and will investigate.

I tried them for the first time when they were the TSV and bought the navy/cream combo. After reading a lot of reviews on the genie bra, I went up two sizes and it works. The band does roll a little but not much. I may go back for a set in a different color combination.

I love the way these look and what they're supposed to do in theory. I'm a 38DDD though, and my good sense tells me these will never work for my heavy girls. I'd love to hear from someone with a size like mine (I do realize I'd have to order 3x). Also, stepping into a bra? My hips measure so wide--I doubt I could step into any bra without ripping it.

Any full-breasted, full-hipped ladies have feedback? thanks.

Seems like I read the bra is sized a little differently from the "regular" Genie bra...might help to check the size chart. I'm a 36b and had to order a small..whereas the other Genie bra would be a medium...hope this helps.

I got the Milana TSVs and wore one for the first time on Monday. I don't like the shape of the pads and will use the pads from the original Genie bras.

There is something different about the fit that I don't like. I'm going to cut off the lace ... it makes the bra fit strangely.

I only bought these for casual wear / gym wear and they are okay for that -but just don't work for me under dressy clothes. They just don't look right under dressier clothing.

I won't return the Milana ... but I won't buy any others.
