When I started this blog, I mentioned the JMS Ultimate Cotton Comfort Wirefree Bra – it was my everyday bra for many years.
There was one huge drawback: it wasn’t my proper size and therefore, I did not get the shape and lift I needed.
So, why revisit the JMS now, since I’ve moved on to better fitting bras? Because, ironically, I found myself wishing for one recently.
I’ve been on a quest, of sorts, to find a comfortable, shaping soft cup bra….a unicorn bra for many women. And since I am obviously without a soft cup bra, my thoughts naturally turned to a bra I know well, one that was there for me through some pretty uncomfortable days of Autoimmune Disease pain – the JMS Ultimate Cotton Comfort.
So what are the good things about the JMS? Before I knew the JMS didn’t fit me, I liked it because it was convenient – I could buy it locally at WalMart, it was cottony soft and comfortable, inexpensive, and most importantly it did not irritate the rash under my arms and torso. On me, the JMS worked by compressing my breasts – so it was a minimizer. It didn’t provide great lift on me, because the cups were too small and band too large. If you are wearing your correct size, I’d expect a natural, lifted look.
Today, I wonder if the JMS would keep my breasts compressed, slightly lifted and forward – a bra I could wear around the house when I don’t want to be seen braless by my son’s friends.
The JMS design does have one big plus for me – the straps and upper cups do not cut into my broad base breasts like many other structured soft cup bras – and right now that’s my biggest obstacle in my soft cup quest.
The drawback of the JMS is obvious – it isn’t made in my size. The smallest band is a 38, which I think was a bit big…and the largest cup size in the 38 is a D. So, obviously, I’d be in a 40DD again with a good deal of compression.
As I write this post I realize, unfortunately, that I can’t go back to the JMS. It’s tempting. Very tempting. Although the JMS is no longer an option for me, I do think the JMS is worth talking about – it was a great bra for me at the time.
JMS is a U.S. brand, with U.S. sizing and comes in B-DD cups and bands 38-48. If you’re in the JMS size range and looking for a comfortable soft cup bra I do recommend trying it. If you are short waisted or high set, this bra could work for you. I definitely recommend the JMS if you have wide base breasts.
