I LOVE the Soma bras and panties from Chicos. Currently have the Nadia (no back fat bra) and it is comfy and great to wear under t-shirts or fitted shirts. The band is wide and soft. Plus the no back fat claim is accurate! This is my favorite bra because of all the things mentioned above and because it pushes me up and gives a little oomph to the chest (I'm a 36B). Also, I have the Danielle bra and although the band is narrower than the Nadia and made in a totally different fabric, the cups seems smaller and it minimizes the girls a bit more. Love the soft tan color because for my lightly tanned skin tone its a great no-show under white or more sheer tops. Both are underwire, but very well-made and comfortable. My sister introduced me to the panties and I will never buy them anywhere else. I like the 95% rayon from bamboo, 5% spandex, 100& cotton crotch panties. They are so soft and feel as if I'm not wearing anything. Plus they don't give panty lines under your clothing. The panties are machine wash, but the bras I put in a lingerie bag and wash with my other clothes on cold, then hang to dry. Good luck! They send coupons after your first couple of orders.

I ALSO LOVE Soma bras! I just tried on the camisole bras and THEY ARE WONDERFUL! I have a Chico's outlet near me and sometimes get them for under $10! TERRIFIC lingerie - high quality and fabulous fit!

Orange, if I may ask, did you order your regular bra size in the cami bra? I ordered the size I wear in Wacoal bras when I purchase them in the department store and it was huge (I'm a 36DD). TIA.

Add me to the list of those who love Soma bras. I gave up on Victoria Secret as I kept falling out of them (I am a 36 DD). Tried Wacoal, but they just were not very comfortable, and could never find many in my size.

I wear the same size in Wacoal in Soma. I love the Rachel style and just tried the Nadia which is great, but it did take me a bit to get it fastened at first! It is really comfortable and does eliminate any backfat problem if you have issues there.

Hi Mare! Yep I orderded the same size and they fit great! GOOD LUCK!

I also agree about the VS bras - I used to love their lacy underwire balconette bras but they don't seem to make them anymore. All the new body by V etc. type bras with the molded cups do NOT give me great support. I 'fall out' as well! Glad it's not just me!

I had never heard of these bras before, always wearing Wacoal. After reading this post, I checked out their website and they really look and sound nice. I've ordered a catalog so I can get more of a feel for their items. I'll be anxious to see it.

I will try these names mentioned above,probably the Nadia.After my breast reduction from a 44DD or E, depending on who, to a 42 C-best thing I ever did for my back and looks also as an added,I was having a hard time since I did have problems with the bras bothering me under my breasts where the scars were despite healed.I am fine now and the scarring is mostly gone but I do not want to start anything up.I found, believe it or not, that the Fruit of the Loom soft fabric molded cup bra(grey,black, and pastels) was the best in comfort,support,and longevity;the price ridiculous.Found it while getting kitty litter with hubby at Walmart and he suggested and being a bra snob, I rejected at first, but glad I conceded.It also made my girls look really good.I also tried their panties since so pleased with their bras and they have come a long way since granny's panties.They do have a wide selection of several good brands, not junky at all.I agree that VS is not supportive and when needed I have found the "body sculpting" Kirkwood cami that you step into is very supportive and has withstood a year of abuse and washing(use with a zipper fabric net bag on delicate on cold or warm).I don't like Breezies, found the underwire very uncomfortable and jabbing me on the sides.

I don't do their bras (yet), but love their panties and they have great sales every now and then and fabulous customer service of course.
