Jockey, you have a large market out there that you are not serving!!! Could you make a size 0 cup for all of us out there who are just barely an A size? (Notice on the clearance racks which size is never on clearance....)
Now, about the packaging. I received my bras by mail (free shipping - thank you). Two bras came in a parcel that was about 14" x 14" x 6". Inside that parcel were two beautiful blue boxes, each a little longer than a shoe box, and inside each of those was a bra that was very beautifully presented. This did have the effect of making me feel as if I'd purchased something 'special', but the bra was really no more special than other bras. Believe it or not, one of my first thoughts was that this much packaging had to have really increased the price of the item. I am a dollar-conscious conscious consumer who was desperate enough (i.e. uncomfortable) to TRY a $60 bra if it really really fit perfectly. But, to save $15-$20-$25 per bra, I would have been 100% happy with a LOT less packaging and presentation coupled with a reasonable USPS First Class shipping fee ($3-$4 should do it to send a parcel that weighs a few ounces).
So, at this point I am out $20 for the fit kit (which also could have been customized a bit to save resources, manufacturing costs, and shipping); I did not need to even consider trying the 7 larger cups. And I am sad to say that I am still uncomfortable with what I am wearing, as I had to return the three different bras I tried (34-1, 34-2, 36-2).
I hope, if you are still reading, that this nicely made, good quality product works out better for you than it did me.
I am 51 years old, 5'4" and 125 pounds. I normally wear a 34C in other bras. I purchased a 4/30 in the Jockey bra.
The comments posted were true AT FIRST. There does seem to be a lot of material surrounding the underwire. The band does seem to be really tight. The area between the cups does irritate the skin and is itchy. I wanted to like this bra so much that I kept it on all day and sure enough after a few hours I forgot that I had the bra on. It felt even better the second day; no itchiness, no tightness, just a very flattering silhouette! I've now had this bra for several weeks. It has conformed to my body and truly does feel like it was made just for me. The bra doesn't move or slip throughout the day. The straps do not fall off of my shoulders nor do they feel like they are cutting into my skin.
Jockey has provided fabulous customer service; the bra arrived within 5 days of ordering and it was beautifully packaged. GREAT JOB Jockey! I look forward to more styles with the same great fit.
When I measured, I got 32" on the tape measure, exactly. I wasn't sure if that was the measurement for the first, middle or last set of hooks and I was afraid to go up a size, because I didn't want to order it too big. So I went by the directions and when the bra arrived the 32" fit tightly at the last set of hooks. (In other words, the measurement should be correlated to the center hook on the bra.)
In the future, please indicate what set of hooks the measurement you get will fall on; that way people can make adjustments accordingly.
If you could send me a set of hook extenders, that would be fantastic! Thank you,
It was comfortable.
