Playtex 18 Hour Women’s Full Coverage Bra Review

Presenting Playtex 18 Hour Posture Bra

The high support and refined style of Playtex 18 Hour Women’s Full Coverage Bra is the first thing that attracts attention to this undergarment piece. The product is created to provide maximum comfort and functionality during everyday wear; it is easy to put on and take off, its straps are wide and soft, and it is built to distribute the weight of the bust in a perfectly physiological way with the wide backside shaped like an X and made with the thought for hotter or busier days in your life.

thumbMaterials and design

The bra is made with 81% of polyamide and 19% of elastane. The result is a product capable of combining a series of highly performing and different technical specifications, ideal for finding the compromise that best suits your daily wear needs. There is no shortage of benefits for these two materials that are light and comfortable like a second skin.

Conversely, among the negative elements to take into consideration, we should mention the lack of absorbent properties and sensitivity to high temperatures which you should keep in mind when washing the product. It can therefore be washed in the washing machine at medium temperature, in order to guarantee a constant environment for the molecular chains in the fabric of your bra.

The combination of polyamide and elastane used in Playtex 18 Hour Full Coverage Bra has a good resistance, which allows the product to withstand the stress typical of daily activities without effort.

The bra is available in white, black and nude colors; it is a full-coverage bra with a frontal hook-and-eye closure and a reinforced backside. The straps are adjustable and wide, and so is the under-cup band, both designed to protect your skin from etching into.
