What is the Most Comfortable Bra? - Customer Genie Bra Review
My Genie bras
Is there such a thing as a comfortable bra?
Well, first I would have to say that the most comfortable bra is no bra at all. The women of the 1960s had it right when they set those things to fire, an inspiring demise that appears to be nothing more than an urban legend, unfortunately.
Who came up with these confining contraptions that we call "brassieres"? How could something so confining ever be comfortable to wear? Personally, I've always thought the phrase "comfortable bra" to be an oxymoron.
I like comfort, so my search for the "perfect" bra started early on in my bra-wearing years. I have shopped, I have tried on, I have ordered, and I have always been disappointed.
I don't want to feel a garment wrapped tightly around my chest. At some point, though, in my quest for the perfect bra, I did realize that my dreams of finding a bra that wouldn't touch my skin was an impossibility. Only when I accepted this compromise could I begin to find a bra that would satisfy me enough at least in being as comfortable as it could be.
Review from Real Customer
Review of the Genie Bra
After searching for many years for the perfect bra, I finally gave up and limited myself to wearing two older, looser bras that didn't feel as though they were sucking the life out of me.
Then, one day, I was watching television with my boyfriend when an infomercial about Genie bras came on. Don't ask me why we--at least he--didn't immediately turn the channel. Maybe I mentioned my trouble in finding a comfortable bra. At any rate, we watched the whole commercial--or infomercial--about bras.
Watching the women on there go happily from bumpy chested to smooth chested caught my attention, as did the disappearance of back fat. The women, with chest sizes from small to extra large, claimed the genie bra was comfortable while providing adequate support.
I was sold. Trying the genie bra was worth a try, as I had tried practically everything that had come along. I had a drawerful of bras I wouldn't wear and that just needed to be thrown out.
I went online and ordered the set--one in black, one in white, and one in beige. I actually ended up with two of each as the "Wait--there's more!" TV ad offered two sets instead of one.
Ordering was easy as there was no real guessing about sizing. Customers may order anywhere from extra small (XS) to extra large (4XL), sizes that correlate to their usual clothing sizes..
I was happy with the price, too. With shipping, the bras came to be about $12 apiece. I have seen them recently in the stores in "As Seen on TV" sections. They are not really cheaper, with packages of two for $20 not counting taxes.
I was pleased with my decision to try the Genie bra. I waited eagerly for my package to arrive.

Cons of the Genie Bra
The bras came with pads in them. I didn't catch that on the infomercial. I'm not sure that was mentioned. I was distraught until I realized that the pads could be easily removed. Yea! The bras was still thick enough to cover what they needed to cover just fine.The bra is smooth with or without the pads. The pads are just not needed--except for maybe smaller-sized ladies who want a little more . . . .
The straps are a bit wider than what I would prefer, as they show occasionally and are harder to move over. Still, that's not a big deal. Some girls just love to show their little bra straps, anyway, so with the genie bra, there's more to show.
The Magic Genie Bra gets my vote!
Pros of the Genie Bra
Well, after I took out the padding, I was eager to try on the bra. I loved the fit and smooth look without the padding. The Genie bra held things where they should be (with no underwires!), and--lo, and behold--the look from the back was also smooth! I was very pleased with the fit.
If you like to show cleavage, the genie bra will hold you together to create that look. If you don't, however, you can also adjust the bra to minimize this type of showing. Another neat thing about the bra is that it acts as a camisole under blouses that are a little too low-cut.
Like the woman on the personal review video, I have also worn my genie bra while working out, and it was as good or better than many sports bras I have tried. I can vouch for her statement that the Genie bra is the only bra she needs. Perhaps a heavy-duty sports bra would be needed for super vigorous physical activities, but the Genie bra could work just fine with many activities.
And ladies--these bras are easily cared for, too. They do just fine in the washer and dryer!

How does the Genie Bra compare to other bras?
How does the Genie bra compare to other bras, perhaps copycat bras, that are now filling the shelves? Are the other bras any better? Cheaper? I've heard that the Ahh Bra is bulkier and not as supportive. I haven't had a reason to try it, since I've been happy with my Genie bras. As far as price, the Genie bra is about the same as others I've seen.
Try other brands if you wish, but I can wholeheartedly vouch for the Genie bra. It's smooth, supportive, and, in my opinion, as comfortable as a bra can get. Take it from someone who has always hated bras. For the bra-burning, bra-hating gals who only wear bras when they have to, I can tell you that the Genie bra gets my vote.
