I forgot what a bad experience I had with Jacob Lingerie bras until I read the other reviewers post. I bought a couple bras from Jacob Lingerie a few years ago and it was the same thing, after a few months of washing, it looks like I was sporting a 5 year old bra! In my case the underwire did rip through near the armpit on one side. Needless to say although they are cute and fun in colors sometime, I have never bought another Jacob Lingerie bra since. I stick to La Senza.
I got a couple of bras from Jacob Lingerie on Boxing day because they were a super good deal. At first I was happy with the quality and overall comfort – they fit like a glove, and were very well made. However, several months later they are falling apart!! I have washed them with the same care as all my other bras (hand wash, or gentle cycle on the washer, then hang to dry) but these ones seem to have fallen apart twice as fast as even my La Senza bras! Usually my bras from La Senza last about a year but it is 4 months later for these bras and they are already on their last legs. The padding on one of them went all wonkey after its first wash, and the second one (which fits amazingly and I will be sorry to see it go) the underwire has shifted and is getting dangerously close to ripping a whole in the end (right under my arm) and being exposed completely. It hurts so much to wear this one by the end of the day that I can’t even wear it anymore. Not to mention the constant rubbing of the nearly exposed underwire has made (what seems like) a permanent little mark under my arm. NOT. IMPRESSED.
I would recommend spending your money elsewhere on bras ladies.
