Genie Bra Advantages

Made from microfiber, Genie Bra avoids the hassle and discomfort caused by seams and straps. You won’t have to worry about your bust bouncing as you indulge in your favorite physical activity. Stretch fabric nylon that lasts for ever and spandex form the crux of this bra, which is more like a vest that supports petit and large body types.

Ideal for formal wear

What works?

It’s smooth, comfortable and feels like a sports bra with better definition. It fits A-C cup sizes perfectly and also works well for bigger cup sizes although you might not get same definition. Internal pads are brilliant and it gives more coverage; however the key lies in finding the right size for you.

What Genie Bra doesn’t? do

Bottom band in Genie bra might be better than underwire but it can still roll up, which can be annoying. There’s confusion when looking for right size bra as you don’t know if you are looking for shirt or bra size. Some might think it gives a small fit and you might have to buy a bra one size bigger. Unfortunately the common grouse about genie bra is that delivery takes long. Your location can also lead to huge shipping and handling costs.

The sizing guideline attached here can help you pick the right fit. Genie bra is as comfortable as a sports bra and to your relief there’s no underwire or straps. You can also use it to create a camisole look without adding unwanted layers.

Tips on buying right size Genie Bra

It’s important to remember that the sizing chart for Genie Bra is based on shirt sizes. The lettering system is fairly straightforward and the guidelines below will make things simpler for you.

XS/S Shirt Size: 0, 2, 4, 6 Bust Size: 32, 33, 34, 35 M Shirt Size: 8, 10 Bust Size: 36, 37 L Shirt Size: 12, 14 Bust Size: 38, 40 XL/1X Shirt Size: 16, 18, 16W, 18W Bust Size: 41, 43, 44, 46 2X Shirt Size: 20W, 22W Bust Size: 47, 49 3X Shirt Size: 24W, 26W Bust Size: 50, 53 4X Shirt Size: 28W, 30W Bust Size: 54, 57

When looking for right size bra, you need to measure your bust. It’s safer to buy smaller size bra if between sizes as Genie Bra stretches to fit. If the bra you buy doesn’t fit, you can contact customer service within 30 days and you will get a replacement bra in another size.

  1. MPM says:

    These bras are at the very least “binding”. Second time around, I ordered a full size larger. I was having shoulder surgery and was told to find a bra that I can step into. As I said, I had one of them before, but as it didn’t fit right I decided to get a size larger. No WAY could I get this one any easier than a ‘regular’ bra. Not only that, but once again (I should have learned) it makes you look like you have a “una boob”. Its totally the material…too tight, too hot, too binding. Awful

  2. diana says:

    I ordered these bras 2 weeks ago and they say there is a 60 day money back guarantee. Bunch of baloney! The phone number for returns just puts you on permanent hold with no sound. Second number, they give you the truth about how much it will COST YOU to return the darn things! S&H is more than the bra is even worth!! There is no support with this bra, and I can’t even get it zipped. What a rip. Buyer beware on this product.

  3. DeeTye says:

    I bought 1 and thought it was wonderful so went and bout 6 more, what a mistake. Should have waited until washed. Shrunk and don’t fit at all and very uncomfortable and actually hurt. The old saying ” if it sounds to good to be true – don’t get it” they should be sued for false advertising at least to return money to those of us with so many problems. I had Cancer surgery and thought these would be perfect, right! Now where do I get the money to get new bras? Don’t be fooled ladies, stay away from ads on TV, not many you can count on and get your money back as they guarantee–well we all know the answer to that. Especially for the elderly, always hit on us! Well no more for me, no more TV buying and no more catalogs either TAKE HEED– ITS ALL A SCAM.

  4. bcuz says:

    Jury is still out. However Genie Bra puts out a 2 pack at CVS that is not the same as the 3 pack I previously bought at another store. The makeup of the one from the 2 pack is flimsy. The material on the strap is not double as it is in the 3 pack. It also feels very uncomfortable and not supportive. The Genie Bra’s in the 3 pack felt so exceptional that I bought the 2 pack. There is an “S2″ stamped on the pads of the 3 pack (not so on the 2 pack).
    I thought this site geniebra.com was legitimate and am hoping to get the same product that I got with the 3 pack.

    Troubles already though. Both the packs came with pads and I’m told only 1 set has them in my purchase. The site didn’t mention pads at all. I had no idea any of them would come without them.

  5. Lora McWeen says:

    The Genie Bra works well for me. My problem is the opposite of most reviewers-I am a 44 A/B, and the cups on most full-figure bras are way too large for me, if a 44B is even available. This bra was a good solution. I don’t think it would be ideal for a larger bust, but it is one of a very few options that work for me. It had enough support, was comfortable, and looked fine under a tshirt. The 3x is a good fit. I bought mine in WalMart.

  6. ruby says:

    I ordered the special deal of 6 bras for the price of one set back around Christmas time and received both sets only to get disappointed: no support, rolls up all the time, very hot to be in. I called to return them and did send them back within the 60 day guarantee and still have not received my refund. i have no product so why am i still calling for them to give my money back??? I’m tired of calling these people since 5 months. they keep telling me to wait for them to refund me but that should have happened right after i returned their product! DO NOT BUY IT!

  7. Peggy Hall says:

    Please eliminate the parts of your tv adverisement that is indecent. I think you will be able to find those parts. It is disgusting

  8. MLC says:

    I have purchased Genie bras twice through QVC. My first purchase was before I lost about 50 pounds and I was unable to ‘step into’ it because of my size (about 260). Recently they had a ‘Today’s Special Value’ for three of the bras in a Jacquard print and three different choices of color so I decided to try them again. They come with the modesty pads. I purchased a 2x and although it was a struggle getting the adjusted over my arms which are very large, once they were in place, they are the most comfortable bra I have ever worn I don’t have the uni-bra look, although they obviously don’t have the separation of an underwire. I even sleep in mine. They particularly have a lot of support around the back which I really like and they don’t roll…

    I’m not sure if QVC’s are a better quality, but I know they have a lot of styles and colors, but I am sold. It wouldn’t always replace my other bras but in most cases it does just fine.

  9. kpshopper says:

    I bought mine through QVC and love them for sleeping or every day use. I’m a 36C/D and ordered the Large. They’re not the prettiest, but they are uncomplicated, comfortable and economical. I’m a little surprised at all the negative comments. Most seem to be a result of ordering directly through the company. I would suggest ordering through QVC as their package deals are really worth it and if you have any issues you can work directly with QVC customer service. Fair warning…if you don’t like sports bras, don’t order these. The fit and support is almost the same. These do produce a better look with your clothing though. I ordered the pads for better coverage and glad that I did.

  10. Karla Spitzer says:

    I’m so surprised that people do not love these bras…I’m a 38c-d and LOVE them…they fit, they don’t make me miserable, and I can stand wearing them all day…and I think I look good in them.

  11. D. Cremeans says:

    These Genie bras are absolutely not as advertised and satisfaction guarantee not upheld. I purchased 4..yes..dumb of me I know—4 of these so called magic bras. They absolutely give no shape and no support…..I usually wear a 36DD.. ordered what they recommended….well they were too big…so was told to wash….and yes they shrunk…boy did they….but they still give no uplift and shaping at all…..the weight of the breasts pulls down on the straps.feel like have nothing on as there is nothing holding the breasts up and in place…….I was suckered into buying 4 as part of a special….but now regret even purchasing one of these bras….People====out there….DO NOT BUY!! A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY and NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN> and by the way if you do not want your nipples to show through all your tops…you then have to order special pads for these bras at, of course, an additional charge….

    • Sherrie says:

      I ordered a size large, I’m a 36B and according to the package, that’s the size I needed…it was way too small, I couldn’t even get it on all the way.

      I bought it at Wal-Mart, so, it went right back. I’m glad I just bought the one to try and not the package of three.

    • ruby says:

      I ordered these bras about 5 months ago and still have to call for my refund when they say there is a 60 day money back guarantee. Bunch of baloney!

  12. Boobelly says:

    After much deliberation I decided to buy one of these bras. I am 5 ft 2 and normally wear a size 36C but bought according to my dress size as you are advised. I have to agree the bra is very comfy but that is because it gives you no support whatsoever. The shoulder straps are just pulled down by the weight of your breasts and the bra gives you not shape at all. For anyone with a larger bust I would say this product is a complete waste of money and in my opinion the advertisements make false claims. Give them a miss and buy a decent bra, this is absolute rubbish.

  13. Victoria says:

    Well, I ordered the Genie Bras on the 23rd of Dec. Check the web site and they show shipped and delivery date Jan 4th. I also got free shipping and handling online. Total paid was $59.95 for 6 bras. I sure hope they fit. I am a full figure gal and bought the 2X at Walmart and it was too small but I liked the material and craftsmanship, so ordered the 4X online. I have lost weight and need something to keep the girls in place. I’m praying when I get them they work. I also got emails from customer service that my order was shipped and after reading the negative reviews I contacted customer service via email and received a reply less than 24 hours later. They told me that if I do not like the bras I can return for a full refund. The CSR stated most problems are due to wrong sizes being ordered. Wish me luck. I will do a followup once I receive.

    • sabra says:

      THIS IS THE WORST BRA YOU CAN PURCHASE…GOT IT FROM CVS FOR 20 BUCKS AND THANK GOD THAT’S ALL I LOST… I’VE READ OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE LOST CLOSE TO 100 BUCKS…THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SUPPORT…THE ELASTIC IS FLIMSY (LIKE A BANDAID), THE SUPPORT CUPS ARE TINY AND IT ROLLS UP…NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY…BETTER TO SPEND YOUR MONEY IN A REAL STORE, GET SIZED CORRECTLY AND TAKE IT FROM THERE…WHAT A WASTE!!!!

  14. Olya says:

    I bought those today and I LOVE them so far. I am petite with size A-B. The only thing is the sizing. I thing it’s wrong. My chest is 32 which means I should get size S or SX but I tried them on in the store and figured I need M for a relaxed fit. So far it’s very soft and comfy !!!!:) I love them, feels like you can sleep in those.

  15. Lena says:

    These BRAS SUCK! They are nothing like the Rhonda Shear Ahhh Bras. The Ah Bra is worth the money. The Genie Bra is a complete waste of money. 1. they don’t fit like they say they do. They run like 2-3 sizes under. 2. Customer service is non-existent. 3. No number or contact. I finally got a number to call when searching the internet and its a long distance number and they never pick up. After about 45 mins I hung up. I found a email and they are unprofessional and will not give complete details on how to return them. They just say here’s a PO box return there. SO if you are looking for a decent no strap bra. Its not a genie bra. I didn’t realize is was one of those As Seen On TV things. Never again. Out $60!

  16. Donna Santarossa says:

    I tried on medium, large and x-large and the x-large is snug but okay I guess. It seems like they are all very similar in size like one size fits all.

    My bra size is 36A and according to the size chart the XL should fit 41-46 around the bust. This just is not true. It would seem to me that these bras were not inspected and just randomly sized. They could be a good sports bra but were not adequately inspected. They were purchased from a big box store so at least I got to try them on. If I had ordered them according to their size chart it would have been very frustrating.

  17. Kim Parks says:

    I watched the infomercials and read the website, debated but and then placed my order. I was so excited when I got home and my bras had arrived. That is where the excitement ended. The material is not comfortable – it is rather rough and scratchy. The fit is terrible. And there is absolutely NO support. This bras SUCK!!! The advertising is FALSE! The customer service is even worse. It isn’t a toll free number and I have already been on hold 29 minutes to get the RA # to return them and in the end the RA # is the same as the ORDER #. What a waste of time and money!!

  18. J Harmon says:

    I just noticed that on the ad that is shown quite frequently that on the left side there is a black woman standing back first to show that there is bulging with other bras and on the right side in the same shirt to show that the genie bra has no bulging is a white lady. That is so deceiving to show two different body types and expect for us to not notice such a small, but important difference. It wouldn’t be surprising to find that the bra used in the ad is enhanced with wires or something. #justathought

    • D. Cremeans says:

      I would agree that the pictures of the bra on models have to be shown with under-wires on or something similar…these bras absolutely have no support to them….none at all…they can not hold up a breast let alone hide a bulge on the backs….as shown….

  19. Elaine Stephens says:

    The Genie bra is the most comfortable bra I have found. I will not go back to the regular bras. Thanks so much my back does not hurt anymore. Bought at RiteAid.

    Thanks

  20. XCalburLdy says:

    OK, Wish I had found this site sooner but here is my story. I am very large chested and had lost a lot of weight so all my old good quality bras do not fit anymore. I had bought them at a plus size specialty store called Catherine’s about 5 years ago. They still wash and wear as good as the day they were bought. At that time I was a 54 F. I am now down to a 40 DDD. I have been basically going bra-less for a long time since I have moved and the closest Catherines it 2 and a 1/2 hours away. (Each one mind you was about 90 bucks but well worth the money I invested in them) In a pinch i have wore a 46DD sports bra if I absolutely need one (for a friends wedding) I just had major surgery and wanted to find one that was comfortable enough to fit that i could wear even while sleeping as 1 of my 3 incisions from surgery is 12″ vertical and almost up to where a bra would sit. I figure it would take pressure of the incision as it healed and I saw the Genie Bra in Walmart. My mom is big chested too so I got the 4X ones so that she should have been able to fit in one as well since it was a 2 pk. The fabric was nice and soft and would not have irritated my surgery site which was a plus when I opened them. According to sizing both me and mom would have needed a 3x but i wanted bigger cause I planned on sleeping in mine. Well after I came home from the hospital and surgical rehab I decided to try it on. I think that even a contortionist would have a problem getting it on. It was sooo tight. My boobs were popping out of everywhere and it was even harder to get off. Since I bought them b4 my surgery it is too late to return them but thank goodness I am only out 20 bucks. I would NOT recommend this bra to anyone unless your an A or B. It’s flimsy, not made well and is total false advertising. I feel so sorry for anyone who ordered this product of the website and the horrors of returning and the S&P that they paid. Thank goodness there was a place I could leave my story for others to read. Buyer beware is all I have to say and if it sounds to good to be true it probably is. I do buy stuff online on occasion but I do make sure I research the product completely before purchasing, but as I was doing my last shopping b4 the surgery, with the fit requirements I figured it would work. I figured wrong. Now I will have to wait until I find someone who is going anywhere near that store I used to shop at before I will consider buying another bra. At least, I am home recovering and I do not work anymore because of my health and other issues that I dont have to worry about going braless, and I already have the gravity problem so I just wear bigger shirts and if someone makes a comment I ignore it. On the flip side I wish they made bras for men to hold up their balls so they would have to go through what we go through. that would be the day, they would probably come up with a law making it illegal. LOL. Well I hope my review helped someone b4 they got sucked in by the Genie of the lamp!!!!

    • Kimberly Johnson says:

      KEEP BEING A PEST YOU IGHT GET THE RIGHT REP WHO WILL TRY NOT TO LOOSE YOUR BUSINESS. I agree they roll, the satin comes off the cup so it is hard to put back in and they are like a sport bra but they are comfortable and that is what I wanted. i have no reason to flaunt me 34 c’s I bought my first three 2-3 years ago My weight fluctuates between 130 and 140 depending on my health. I loved them. Now I have decided to order more as they have Spring colors and YES the bra shows on just about any top you wear. When I called they were having a special on getting 3 Bras at $69.95, 3 Tankinis for free and 3 leggings for $59.95 The representative said I would need a Small & I informed her that I was comfortable with Medium. I fell for the gimmick and bought the Prior client Special. When they got here everything was a small. I could not even get my foot in the leggings! I was ill, had major surgery and then a long recovery where I could only wear the bra. When I called about trying to get the right fit I was told I had to keep the deal I got and they would change the sizes. They got here the bras are Medium as are the Tankinis, and the leggings are Large. I put on the Tankini to go to dinner and the cup pad is at best is 1/2 the thickness of the bra and I was swimming in the Tankini!! I called back and was told I had to keep the same deal. I asked to give me more bras or I would try the panties. Which the representative never mentioned. She held firm. Finally I said you know let me try on the bras on it was 5PM and while I was getting then she HUNG UP !! i called back 2 days later and told them the whole story. This time they had delivery date wrong but told me the supervisor would e-mail me that they would refund my money if I returned the product then I could reorder and get the items I needed. Let’s see!!

  21. DIANE BALL says:

    IT ROLLS UP, IT LOSES IT’S SHAPE. LOTS OF MONEY FOR NOTHING.

  22. Glenda Shields says:

    These bra smash you, they roll-up in front making them very uncomfortable & it did not hold the bulges in under the arms. I would advise not to buy any & save your money for a fitted bra.

  23. Lynn says:

    I am a 34AA and I love my Genie bra. I had a lumpectomy a few years back and have to add padding to my bra. I bought mine at Walmart and the sizing is perfect. It came with pads which is what I need, it stays put and is so comfortable. For the price $10, I am very happy since I have spend much more on padded bras. I am a 56 year-old woman, so these bras aren’t just for teens.

  24. Jane Brauch says:

    In the advertisement it states that no roll-ups. The band doesn’t stay flat, it rolls up in the front and digs in, making it uncomfortable. I’m a size 34 so I bought a medium size. No future purchase for me.

    • Annabel Leasowe says:

      I had the same problem. I bought two of them and they were THE most uncomfortable bras ever. I felt they were too thick, not enough support and were shapeless. I am a 38C and it not only rolled up but I found it had rolled up over my chest completely and was bunching up under my arms which was very constricting especially as I was not in a situation to do anything about it until I returned home. Embarrassing beyond belief. I purposely bought the size larger than I would normally buy but it was still very uncomfortable. Never again.

  25. Mary Newton says:

    I do not understand why so people are posting problems and complaints. I have looking for a good fitting bra without having to pay a fortune for about a year now. The price was affordable when I saw it in Rite Aide so I bought one (contained 2 bras with the pads already in place). I figured it was worth a try since I had tried about everything else and had a drawer full of bras that I hated. I have loved it every since I put it on. Not that it matters, but my husband loves the way I look in them. they are so comfortable and give me the support I need. The extra lift is just a bonus.

    Finally after nearly a year I found a bra that meets my needs. I will never buy a different type of bra ever again. I was disappointed in the limited color choices at the store, but I just visited the web site and there are many many color to choose from there, even classic white. They even have promotions and the one they have now gives you a free set. Excellent product. And for the record, I am somewhat large chested….

    • fran says:

      Am I ever glad I checked out the reviews before buying. I was considering it,but not any more. stick with what you know seems like good advice. And you know the person asking you to email you with questions is just trying to sell you more. Genies are not real, apparently!

      • Vickie says:

        Gee Fran, sounds like you have trust issues. Kelly from Genie is just doing her job. I think it’s wonderful that someone from that company offered to help anyone who needed some help.

        I’m checking out the reviews too but whether they are good or bad, or both like it is in this case, I’m the only one who can decide how I feel about the bra. I plan to buy one from Walmart or RiteAid so if it doesn’t work out, I can return it.

        I read all the reviews and when I got to Fran’s reply in regard to Kelly from Genie, I couldn’t help but say something. It sounds like Fran has gotten burned a couple of times. Take it easy Fran and please try to find the good in what people do.

  27. Thelma Smith says:

    I bought a set of the three Genie bras a few weeks ago and have to say how disappointed I am. I order the large size as I’m a 20-22 but they don’t fit properly and I think they are more a size 18. The pads are next to useless and they are very flimsy, falling apart after a couple of washes. Getting them on and off needs you to be an athlete and they don’t give any support or shape. So all in all a complete waste of money. What they say on TV is absolute rubbish and not, they only show the smaller ladies who I’m sure can wear anything anyway. Don’t waste your money!

    • Annabel Leasowe says:

      True! I suspect all the glowing reports on here are from the makers and sellers of the product. If you are any larger than a 32A forget it. This bra is not for you!

  28. Anonymous says:

    I usually wear “slip-on”bras and find them very comfortable, so yesterday I purchased a box of 2 Genie Bras from the “As Seen on TV” aisle at my local pharmacy store. I wear a 14/16 top, and per the box I could take either a Small or a Medium – I bought the Medium size. The compression felt good when I tried it on, but I found the band to be a little tight. Initially I was just going to exchange it at the store for a large, but I found myself fiddling with the straps – they were too short for me, and are not adjustable. I don’t know if the straps are longer on the Large size, but just decided to return them and go back to my original brand.

    • Darlene Gilchrist says:

      I was planning to buy a Genie Bra next week after years of finding a decent fitting bra. After reading these reviews, it sounds like a waste of time and money(on SSI and can’t afford to waste a penny). I am a 44DD, and have very heavy, dense breasts and very large and noticeable nipples. I need SUPPORT, SUPPORT, SUPPORT! This is starting to sound like a bad idea.

  29. Rose says:

    I bought three Genie Bras and received three free. I ordered the size I wear in a sport bra. X-Large. Well neither of the black fit me. Too small. But the two white and two beige fit. My complaint is the rolling up on the band. They all did this. Very uncomfortable. I wish there was a way I could fix this problem. It drives me crazy! ):

    • Vanessa Cain says:

      I bought 2 Genie Bras in the store,and I’ve had nothing but problems. They roll,they dig into my shoulders.I bought the size I was told to,so I called them and I got a man on the phone. He didn’t even want to my comments,he made out like it was my fault they were giving me problems.They could have at least offered to send me the size they thought I should if that was really the problem.I’m not every going to buy another one.

  30. Gretchen Jones says:

    Just bought 2 genie bras. Got 1 on now. It is so comfortable just love it. Would love if you could send me 2 more free. I will be your free advertisement 4 the genie bras.

  31. Kelly H says:

    I love this bra, my daughter took mine and loves them too, had to purchase more. I have purchased several at Target and CVS will continue to purchase in the future. I do not think I would order them though,quite a bit of the problems people have had seem to be with shipping/shipping cost

  32. Barbara Griffin says:

    After seeing the Genie bra on TV, I checked the reviews and decided to give it a try. I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond because I did not want 6, and felt that I could get 2 and with their coupon at a reasonable price. As it turned out, that was a smart move as I had to take the first pair back for a larger size. I ended up with 2x even though I am not that big. I have had back surgery and other bras were not comfortable even if they were front closing bras. I can put them in the washing machine but tend to rinse them out by hand. I am very happy with the two I have. I like the way they make me look. I just wish I could buy them in a variety of colors beside black & tan.

    • Mary Newton says:

      Barbara,

      You can buy them in multiple colors from their website. Go to the website and click on shop and you will not believe all of the choices that you have. I love mine too. I will never purchase another type of bra again

    • sandy rovane says:

      You can buy pink and blue at WalMart. I had to get a 3 X to fit and am also not that bit. China makes them and I find everything I guy normal size 16 on top and I buy 1 x if made in China.

  33. Debra says:

    I was so exited to see the advertisements – but it rolls up and frankly someone with a large chest – this give no support just squishes together – bought a size larger just to make sure but don’t waste your money – anyone with a large chest knows – we need support – and this offers zero support.

  34. Katy B says:

    I am wearing my Genie bra and was trying to find out if I should remove the pads before washing. Nothing specific but since some reported them falling apart I think I will. I bought mine at Riteaid 2 for $19.95. I was prepared to hate it and bring it back but I love it. A lot are complaining about sizing but there is a guide on the box so I just looked up my size and bought a large. It seems most of the complaints are also about buying the product online. So I would say know your size and don’t buy online. I did not pay extra for the pads they were included in the box (4 of them).

    I cannot believe how awful this has been with Genie Bra. I spent months looking into either getting the Genie Bra or the Ahh Bra. I was recently at a Bed bath and beyond near my house nearly 2 months ago when I noticed they had the Genie Bra, so I grabbed a 2x (which it clearly stated that it would fit me I’m a l/XL shirt. Got it home and no surprise it didn’t fit, so I returned them the following day. I came across a forum of where a actual Genie Bra person from customer service was helping everyone with their issues with the bras (mainly wrong sizes.) I told the person of what happened and they told me that I would need to go up a size or so. So when I called to order they said that they didn’t have the 4x in stock. Within 24 hours I received a call from them (don’t know how they got my number except from the call I placed the night before to the call center for ordering.) They offered me a GREAT deal so I thought to myself, “OK this sounds great” (which I knew there was going to be a catch somewhere.) The man that I was speaking with I told him that I would need a 4x as I had just bought a 2x from a store near my home and it didn’t fit at all. He steadily told me no that I would need a 3x over and over and over again. So finally I told him that I guess we could do the 3x as long as if it didn’t fit I could get the 4x no problems involved. He clearly stated that when I received the 3x’s if they didn’t fit just to call back in and let them know and that they would send out the 4x’s before I could return the 3x’s. Well I did the purchase on March 13, 2012, I received the bras on March 21st and n surprise they didn’t fit (AT ALL!) I immediately called in the call center and told them what happened they sent me a return label which I had to go print off and the FedEx place near my home ( so I spent money on that) and sent the return in the mail the following day. I steadily check their order status to see when they will be sending out my new bras… nothing… All the website says is that it’s “in process.” I called twice got the run around both times everytime I asked to speak to someone over them they could never do it. The first man I spoke with assured me that there was nothing wrong and that it didn’t state on their computer of inventory that there was a backorder, so I believed him. The last woman I spoke with on the second call stated that the item was on backorder and that they should be receiving a shipment of them soon, to just wait and they would send me out an email when they are being shipped to me I asked why I was never told of that and she couldn’t give me an answer. finally I emailed the person I talked to in the beginning that told me to go up a size they emailed me a few times (got an attitude with me over nothing) but when it came around to me asking about when I might receive my shipment I never heard from them again. That happened about a week ago. Well today I went on their website and sure enough it said “in process” still. That was the last straw I called, lady I was speaking with told me that they were on extreme backorder and that it would be another at least 3-4 weeks before they might even receive the size, but they are not sure because they are actually thinking about eliminating that size with lace. So she was saying not to worry I would receive them in a few weeks, I corrected her and told her no! you mean around 2 months right cause the shipping takes about 2 weeks itself, after they finally receive them. I demanded an answer as to why none of the times I spoke to people I was never told about the backorder and possible elimination of the size I need (ones with lace). She also admitted that she couldn’t give me an answer either. So I told them I wanted a refund of my money. Still in shock as to how TERRIBLE their customer service was to me.

    I bought these at Wal-Mart. What a joke. The ad says simply buy your shirt size. These things weren’t made for anyone with real boobs!! I bought the 3X (my shirt size) it took me less than 3 seconds to realize that this thing is nothing but a glorified sports bra and the sizes are so far off that my 3X genie bra is wearable by my 15 year old daughter who wears a 36 B (Shirt size Medium). Wasted my money. To the lady who talked about her 38DDD woes, You have better luck ordering something that size online. I guess I’ll have to stick to the net at $58 a bra (44 J).

  37. Dee Jamacek says:

    LOL… To tell the truth, I only wear these around the house, my nips will show otherwise. I know this will be posted online as well. LOL

  38. geetha says:

    Where Can I buy Genie Bra in stores? which stores carry them?

  39. Disappointed says:

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS CRAP. I ordered the bras for my daughter and myself. The customer service person who took my order was completely incompetent and put me on hold at least 3 times, asked me my name and spelling over and over again and just generally could not answer any questions I had. The next day I see that my account was debited TWICE for the same order, debiting my account a total of $238.00!! I called them immediately and they said, oh we do that on every order to see if you have enough money in the account to pay for the purchase. WHAT!? I’m still waiting for them to put the money back into my account that they have stolen from me. I have not even received the product yet. Don’t order anything from them on line, if you must have them, buy them at a regular store. These online people are thieves.

  40. Margaret says:

    I ordered the Genie Bra from and Infomercial. The sales person and I discussed what size to order which was a 1X. Received the 1X and the bottom front, back and shoulder straps roll. Call Genie Bra and they exchanges for the 2X. Same results. They sent me a 3X same results. At this point I quit calling and returning the bra. Not as advertised.

  41. PATTIE says:

    I got these bras as a gift and they are very comfortable but the pads fell apart right away. I have been calling customer service for a couple months and can not get through. I guess I will go to Wal-Mart and buy them. Just makes me mad that all the pads fell apart. I am trying to sew them back together now. I tried to glue them, but that was a big mistake. Yuck never will I ever want anyone to waste their money on these bras. What a joke. If you don’t get the pads, you hang like you have no bra on.

  42. Dee Jamacek says:

    You can get the Genie Bra or Ahh Bra at Wal-Mart. I like both.

  43. Elsa S says:

    Hi girls I need an advise.

    I’m thinking about buying Ginny Bra (no shipping problems since i´m in Mexico) just want to know how they work in small bobs I’m 34 B and my mom is 34 A, so what do you recommend?? Buy them or not? And if I buy them in Small or Medium ??

    Thank you

    • mary says:

      They are great, depends on your body size my daughter is a size 8 in clothes and she fits into either small/medium – I am a 16 in clothes I went with the XXL for comfort. I think they are very confortable.

    • PATTIE says:

      Remember, you must buy the pads to make the boobs look perking but I guess you are young enough so you don’t have to worry about that. I would not recommend these bras to anyone. Go to Wal-Mart and buy one, just to make sure.

  44. mary says:

    I purchased the genie bra for myself and my daughter – My daughter is a small she loves the bra – unfortunately I ordered the medium and found it too small – I gave them to her to wear. At least shes happy with them. In my opinion order a few sizes bigger then you usually wear.

    • mary says:

      just an update from my last posting – As my daughter now has 6 Genie Bras in small/medium she wears them all day and finds them very comfortable. I’m little jealous as I have to wear a underwire bra which is really uncomfortable. So I’m going to order them too. I have worked out that the sizes are American sizes so In Australian sizes I should be a extra-large but because I like clothes looser I’m ordering a XXL as it gets hot here. I’ll keep you posted on how they feel – I too have read the reviews good and bad. Will admit did feel reluctant in purchasing them but here goes.

      I went down to Big W to check out the Ahh Bra and found the Genie Bra a better quality. I’ll keep you posted.

      • mary says:

        I have been wearing the bras now for a few weeks – they are very comfortable – you dont even feel like you have one on. No more pulling up straps and fiddlng with the bra – I am a 36c and found the xxxl the best size for me. I have found when you wash them take out the padding and place them back once they dry.

  45. Eliana says:

    Most comfortable bra you’ll ever wear! Most comfortable bra my ladies size 5 1/2 foot! Never in my life have I forced my “girls” into something that was so uncomfortable and even more unflattering. And I’m a tiny, petite little thing every place but cup size. Maybe an XXXXL Genie Bra might have looked okay on my 5′ 1″, 120 something pounds, Misses Size 2-6, Junior 5-7, Size Small tops fit me very loose, 32 DDD self. The Medium Genie, however, looked absolutely hideous and felt worse. I shudder to think of what it would have been like had I gone with my clothing size and gotten a Small or Extra Small Genie bra! Probably would have needed to have been cut out of it!

  46. Carole Bryan says:

    returning these…I normally wear a 34C and these make me look like I have a double mastectomy…

    • Carole Bryan says:

      Update…returned them with a USPS delivery confirmation…I received email confirmation the day that they were delivered and the credit was posted to my credit card the next day… kudos to your customer service for a sorry product.

    • PATTIE says:

      I returned mine also but I lost out on the shipping charges, but I am sure that was all it cost to make these cheap bras. They win again. Maybe they should team up the the money guy on TV. They are both scams.

  47. eve says:

    Got the Genie Bra at walmart was tired of wearing underwire bras and its hard to get a regular soft cup bra cause it don’t hold the girls up. So I decided to buy the genie bra I agree with most of the reviews in here THEY SUCK! I wish I found this site before I bought it. The genie bra is more suited for smaller busted women A and B cups. They dont work for us full busted women like me I wear a 38 DDD which is a hard size to find as is. It gives no support what so ever! SAVE YOUR MONEY! So glad I didn’t buy it online and paid all that extra shipping.

    • PATTIE says:

      Yes you are lucky. I lost out on the shipping. They suck. please, everyone, if you are a bigger girl, DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

    Amerimark has been considered as industry in the supply of all kinds of women apparels, and the best to way to shop at this shop is to make use of free coupons offered by the company itself, which helps you to save some amount of your money.

  49. Jane says:

    It is never surprising if you look out for genuine product reviews on the net. But what is surprising is that such real reviews have vanished from the internet world today. I can say that because I experienced this a few days back when I was surfing for Genie Bra reviews. After hearing so much of commercial hype about Genie Bra, I thought of buying it at the comfort of my home, as the product was available online. I entered the keyword Genie Bra into Google search and I could visualize so many sites in front of me. Three dazzling sites attracted me – geniebrafashionista.com, jeniebrareviews.com, geniebrasreviews.com. Unfortunately, I found something strange. The site geniebrasreviews.com/ actually had reviews supporting Ahh Bra. The other two sites were equally useless. Today, when I googled again I found this marvelous site. It answered all my queries related to Genie Bra and its usability. Finally, I bought the product from this site. I am grateful to all the reviewers who helped me to take a confident decision.

    • Admin says:

      I must say that your hunt for genuine reviews has taught you the realities of internet world. Good that you did not fall for the conspicuous reviews posted on the manufacturer sponsored sites. In the end you chose what was right!!

  50. poley says:

    Wish I had read reviews first. Sent for the genie bras and received them they are the 3 pack tried them on and yes they do roll up and no support as I am a 36d the straps stretch when you put them on. Sent them back in there original packing filling in returns note saying they do not do what they are supposed to do and sending them back by recorded delivery like they said. Four days later I received them back through the post normal delivery with a letter in saying they smelt of perfume and they would not refund my money saying they normally charge £10 to send them back but will waiver it this time (cheek) altogether it has cost me £49 for something that is useless.

  51. chris says:

    I saw these bars and sounded like the perfect bra for me. WRONG! must get at least a size or two larger, you get one big boob where there should obviously be two! An they make you flat chested! I am a 34D and I looked like a 34A. the under band DOES roll, and just by trying one on, it had frays and snags. you could go to Walmart even, and get a better fitting and more flattering bra than this! Commercial is deceiving, so save your money! Hope this review helps you.

    • yvonne beck says:

      I agree totally, this bra is useless if you have a decent size bust. It just pushes them together and flattens them, comfy yes but useless.

  52. Joan says:

    Luckily I got my Genie bra REALLY CHEAP on eBay! A Seller divided up a 3-pack and sold the bras out of it separately I guess. I ordered an XL, and it is so super small! I normally wear 12-14 shirt sizes, so thought this would be plenty big, but it was hard just getting it on. Then I had to take the pads out to get any coverage whatsoever. It’s like a sports bra, makes a uni-boob look. But I will use it around the house since the eBay Seller doesn’t take returns. But the main problem I have with the Genie bra is – I googled Genie bra reviews and could barely find this site. Had to first go through a butt-load of fake review sites that gave nothing but good reviews. I sure hope enough people see this site to be able to save their money!

    • yvonne beck says:

      Ditto Joan, it does nothing for me either, only gives me one large breast instead of 2 medium sizes….wont be buying another!!

      Yvonne

  53. bjm says:

    Depending on brand; I wear a small/medium. Decided to buy the medium Genie Bra, at Wal-Mart, today and it ‘rolled’ up immediately! I’ve always been thankful to be small breasted because bras are so uncomfortable and I could choose not to wear one ~ being 50 something… I’ll be returning these tomorrow!!!

  54. Lois says:

    The Genie Bra is a scam. I bought a pack of 3 -for less than $25 on catchoftheday.

    They are rip-off scumbags.

  55. April says:

    Horrible! I ordered the genie bra 6 weeks ago, finally received them today and they are awful. They offer no support at all. I am a 38C normally and this bra flattens but does not lift. I also ordered some for my mother who is a 40DD and the support is laughable. And yes they do roll up on the sides and stomach. These bras are truly only good for women with an A or B cup size and who have a small waist size. Definitely not what they are portrayed to be!

    Also I live in Canada so I payed for the bras, the S&H, and the UPS fee. Altogether I payed $218.95 to get 12 bras. Which at the time I did not deem to bad considering bras are often $30-$50 each. Then after trying them on I phoned to get a return code and asked for the amount I would be refunded…$99.98. I was shocked! She very politely told me they never return shipping and handling and if I paid UPS charges “That’s not our problem”.

    I just hope that others will research these bras before buying them, unlike I did. And if my comment convinces even one person NOT to buy these bras, then I am glad I posted. I will now be using these bras for pajamas because I will certainly not throw away the $120 I paid to get them here….Live and learn…

    • Marsha says:

      Thanks so much! I’m also a “bigger/plus sized Canadian girl” and was considering ordering these bras. Your comments helped me greatly! I will NOT be ordering these bras!!! So, if it is any consolation, your email helped me… thanks! Sorry you had to go through that. : (

  56. Heidi says:

    As many other reviewers reported the bras did take longer to arrive then originally stated. Considering what is charged for shipping, that is a bit of a disappointment. But not nearly as disappointing as the bras themselves were. The fit was nothing to get excited about. But, since I really did not want to find myself struggling with straps falling down when I participated in sports, I figured that was a big enough plus to warrant the purchase of them. Then I washed them, and found a whole new disappointment. The elastic strings were sticking out of one bra after only one wash. Two other bras in the same wash were okay, for now. But repeatedly, after every wash since I purchased these bras, I have to spend 5 to 10 minutes maneuvering the so called lifting pads back inside via the tiny holes where they belong.

    The bras come out of the wash with the pads wadded up in balls. Oh, and the thin silky coverlets on the pads themselves, came off completely within the first wash or two also. The pads take on a shape of their own, and when you get them back into position, they have new folds or ridges that do not look shapely. Deformed is more the word to describe how they look. One more odd thing about these bras; when the package arrives, the inside plastic package with the bras does not say “Genie Bra” on it anywhere, or any other manufacturer’s name? And the bras do not say “Genie Bra” on them either. So, if this deal sounds to good to be true, take it from those of us who trustingly purchased them already, it’s a SCAM! I going back to Macy’s or JcPenny shopping for real sport bras now.

  57. Mehlinda says:

    Not happy with the Bra’s the material is so thin, I have 2 shirts on and my nipples are showing through, not good especially as I work in the public eye, why could they not make then a bit thicker??/ Then the price and shipping, it took a month to come from US to Canada, UPS delivered it, wish it was regular mail. They charged me $30 in taxes. Now I paid $130 for 6 skimpy little bras that I would not wear anywhere except around the house maybe. Why I never saw any nipples on tv?/ they must have put a pad in. False advertising for sure. Unless you want to show off your breast nips go for it, but rather embarrassing for a leader at a church. Darn!

  58. Shelley says:

    Don’t fall for the Genie Bra claims. The “uplift” is an illusion produced by the little triangle foam pads that go in the bra. They might work for an A/B cup. But those of us with fuller busts ……. a total joke. The fabric that is supposed to keep it’s shape for a lifetime, actually lasts about 3 months before it starts to loose it’s shape. And the “6 bras for $60″ turns into $85 by the time you pay the huge shipping fees (which you don’t see until you actually place the order) A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.

  59. Linda McClain says:

    The Genie Bra SUCKS!!! They have no support. They send sub-standard items and then try and get you to upgrade. Do NOT PURCHASE THESE BRAS. I would like to file a class action law suit for false advertising against this company. ANY LAWYERS TAKING-E-Mail. LMCCLAIN6@comcast.net.

  60. Dorothy says:

    TOTAL RIP OFF! If I had seen these comments earlier, I would NOT have wasted my money nor my time (waiting over 6 weeks for delivery). I agree with many other posting here: if you are an A-B cup or already have natural perky boobs, then YES this bra will work for you. But for like me [and so many other women out there], if you are bigger than a D cup and your breasts sag, then NO this bra does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for you. It is made of 96% nylon (same material as panty hose). So if you think you will get “support”, then stick your boob in a panty hose and see for your self. Absolutely no support and the nylon makes you sweat. I get much better support and quality from the cheaper sports bra from my local walmart than these pieces of crap. Would like to get all of my money back, but as many people already posted that it is very difficult to any money returned, so I guess I am stuck with them. I give this product a 1 star rating for a total MISLEADING commercial. Crappy! Crappy! Crappy!!!

  61. Kara says:

    I am going to disagree with most of the comments here but that is because my needs are different. If your needs are like mine you might be happy with these bras. I am a 36C. I bought the genie bra at bed bath and beyond. The size chart said I needed a medium. Got a black medium. Tight and smashes me in. Actually, I only wear it on my walks and light jogs and it works great. I like it. I went back and got a large nude. Fits me much better and I love love love this bra. I hate wearing bras so much that I have chosen to not wear a bra and have opted for a tight tank top for the last few years. Going braless has been wonderful but every now and then I need better coverage depending on what I am wearing. I like this bra because it gives me just the right amount of coverage and support without too much like a regular bra. For those who need better support or for women who are bigger busted this bra won’t work. For women like me who prefer to go bare under this is just right!

  62. needinaGudbrassiere says:

    Well..
    I did not order off the infomercial cause I was too cheap to pay the extra Shipping. Then I see them @ Walmart…hooray!,,,I brought home the box of Bras/2 in pkg./black/nude. I got the XL/1X size, size 14 top. I was looking fwd. to getting out of my sports bra into one of these…..EEEEEKKKKKSSSS!!!! I am a size 38/G….and I normally can wear the XL/rarely 1X. The Bra did not fit, it squashed the “girls” down, and they wanted to come out on the side under the armpit…this bra, has a very slim girl with, smaller breasts pic. on the Pkg…these bras are for her…cause the extra padding which is suppose to conceal…I could not get to work…and I like to wear and extra Concealing Bra…

    I am glad I did not waste Any $ on Shipping…I do not recommend these bras to larger busted women @ All. Actually the fit seemed like I would have needed the 3X…

    Very disappointed,,,,cause it was NOT like the Infomercial…These bras are going right back to Walmart for refund.
    I put my Sports Bra back on and it has more comfort than the Genie/Bra…in an XL….I don’t wear the Sports bra for dress…I was just casual today…Thanks…do try @ Walmart before any added shipping$.

    Thanks.

  63. p.g says:

    The genie bra is a very comfortable fit. However, when I washed the black bra (second wash), the silk-like lining on each side of the removable pad came off. I returned it to Walmart and she said everyone was returning due to this and uncomfortable fits.

  64. Freda says:

    I’m so glad that I read these reviews.. I was so excited to try this bra, but after reading so many bad reviews, I’ve opted out of purchasing them. I have large breasts and have never found a bra that fits comfortably. I guess the search goes on. Thanks for the reviews!

  65. Kelli says:

    I was so excited about the Genie Bra. I saw the infomercial and ordered them online. They finally arrived today. I had to go try one on right away. It does not hold by breast up and there is no support what so ever. The fabric is so flimsy. I called to return them and got more disappointment. I am going to have to pay to ship them back and I am losing the P&H for two sets. These bras are definitely for women with perking and firm breasts. They should mention this in the website and on the infomercial. They are NOT for everyone.

  66. Linda says:

    I did not buy my Genie bras from the traditional Genie Bra website. I paid 2 for $20. I love them for comfort. They remind me a lot of a sports bra with a removable cup. The straps are wide and don’t slip off and for me, the entire bra is very comfortable. I think I have finally found a bra that I can live with, but then, I like sports bras. I you don’t like that type of bra, don’t buy this.

    • Lynda says:

      Where did you purchase? Online or in store?

    • Michelle says:

      If you really want these try Amerimark.com. They are 3 for 29.95. Then google an amerimark coupon code for free shipping and extra savings. I do not recommend spending even the $30 on these though. You can get 2 really good 18 hour bras for that price.

    • Stephanie says:

      I purchased my Genie bras (2 for $19.96) from a discount store on the “As Seen On TV” aisle. I had seen the infomercials and was considering purchasing them to try. After hearing the complaints here, I am glad that I did not order them online.

      I normally wear a 34 D (other bras), and the Genie bra packaging stated that I would wear the Large. The Large works for me, and I like how it gives me the coverage I need. With other bras, I noticed that I did not have a smooth look in the front (i.e. “boob fat”)! No more boob fat, but a smooth appearance!!!

  67. tasha says:

    Hi! anyone have heard of http://www.newgeniebra.com? I have ordered mine online 2 weeks ago, payment deducted from my card, but they have not reply my emails on the eta of the bra. Am wondering are they scam?

    • Sally says:

      Me either

    • suzanne connolly says:

      I also bought 3 genie bras on the 6th november this year and money taken out of account but still no bras.according to genie bra they have no record of my purchase. I went through PayPal so I am lucky I will b refunded. I also think it is a scam.

      • Jenni Ramsay says:

        Also have paid and not received my bras. Money taken from account and no response to 4 emails. Not happy Jan.

      • Lyn says:

        I ordered 3 bras from this site 4 weeks ago – was promised delivery within 9-15 business days. Still have not received them, have emailed them a number of times but have had not one reply. I am getting worried I have been scammed and have lost money I really can not afford to lose. If I don’t get anything in the next couple of days I will be contacting our local consumer affairs department.

        • Lyn says:

          I have been in contact with the Genie Bra customer support – my order reference number does not match their numbers at all. I really do think we have all been scammed. Am contacting consumer affairs today. :(

        • Lyn says:

          I have now been in touch with Consumer Affairs, they recommended I email them once again demanding a reply within 7 days, marking the email with reply wanted and high priority. They also advised me to contact my financial institution to arrange for a reversal of funds paid. I am not talking about the actual Genie Bra company here – it is somebody ‘taking them off’. They call themselves ‘New Genie Bra’ I cannot judge whether the bras are good or not as I never received them. :(

  68. Iulia says:

    Hi, I bought the Genie bras and they are so comfortable, I work in a nursing home and one of the resident asked me about them so I gave her one of mine to try she loved it so I ordered them for her too(she is 89 years old). The best bras ever!!

  69. Lisa says:

    I ordered my Genie Bras about 6 months ago and LOVE them. I got the standard order 2 white, 2 nude, and 2 black size 2X. I wear mine all the time and I found no difference in the sizes between colors. I feel better support from them than sport bra’s and much more comfortable. I have not found that the band is tight at all. I use these for my INSANITY workouts, work, and just being at home. I have lost about 60 pounds and plan to get more in a smaller size. Doing INSANITY without these would have been very painful.

  70. Christine Jacobson says:

    OMG. Do not buy this bra unless you are really skinny. I’m average size and weight. I’m about a 36B. I got a 2X simply because I’ve had similar bras before and they always fit tight around the rib cage. Well, this is no exception. I can hardly breathe the band is so tight. I’ve now cut it in 3 places and it still feels tight. Nothing comfy about this bra.

  71. Sue says:

    Beware the 3 are not the same size the white is perfect the nude is smaller and the black seems like a size smaller to bad the white even feels like different fabric.

    • Michelle says:

      I had a similar case as Sue. The white one was loose, black fit with no support and nude crushed me in. They all say 2x but ARE NOT the same size.

  72. diana says:

    I saw the infomercials before and was pretty skeptical, so I didn’t buy any. I saw them at Walgreen and CVS yesterday for 20 bucks, so I tried them. I am large busted DDD cup. When I put it on, I got the uniboob squashed look. No support. I went over a speed bump in the car and the girls were bouncing. God help me if I have to run. I wore it for a day and I will say it is as comfortable as a jog bra.the band rolled up, and the back slid up. The reason why underwires were built was for the support you get. If you go to a department store like Dillards or JC Penny, they have professional fitters. If you have a properly fitting bra with the right band size and cup size, it should be relatively comfortable. You may have to try different fabrics or manufacturers to find one you like. I like the Wachol brand at Dillards. They are beautiful and they fit well. As for the Genie, I am going to keep it to walk around the house in.. it is worth 20 bucks. It will probably do better with smaller busts.

  73. Becky says:

    I am so thankful I came here first! I still want to try it, but instead of getting it online I will go to Walgreens or Walmart or BBB so I can try it on before I take it home. Then I will know if it will work for me instead of wasting my money–some of you it works and others it doesn’t. This is one of those things you don’t want to get over the phone or online!

      You are right..try it first before buying them online.otherwise it will be definitely a waste of money.I regretted buying them online without trying them first. I am not at all happy with the bras. because – they are not at all flattering – they come with padding, which you have to remove before you wash the bra otherwise the cloth on the padding will come loose and you cant fit the pad again inside the bra. very bad..

      There are better bras for the price.

  75. Michelle says:

    I have now worn all three bras a couple of times.

    What I have found is that while all three of the bras that I bought are 2x none of them fit the same way. It is like I have ordered three different sizes.

    The white one fits the worst. It has no support at all. My opinion is that it has been previously worn and stretched out by someone else which I’m not thrilled with.

    The black one fits perfectly but has no support. It is the most comfortable of the three as it feels like I am not wearing a bra at all.

    The nude one is tight. I like to feel that my bras are holding me in and this one holds, crushes and strangles me into place. It looks great under clothes and offers the most support of the three.

    Due to the design these may give the illusion of a sport bra for the big busted but that theory is a joke. If I even made an attempt to jog in these I would bounce out in the first few steps.

    I have washed all three twice and there has yet to be any shrinkage or tatter but they are still fairly new.

    Had they all fit like the nude one I would be a genie bra loyal but they don’t and I am not going to order more.

  76. SallyRan says:

    ABSOLUTELY! DO NOT PURCHASE AHH BRAS…..THEY CHEATED MY OUT OF MY REFUND $20.00. You can purchase the bra now at Walmart–1 at a time–not 3….if u want to try it and Walmart will GLADLY refund your money.

  77. Sandra says:

    For the last couple of days I have been reading these reviews regarding the Genie Bra. So many people have been saying not so great things about Genie Bra, while some others have had success. The other day I went to the mall and found a store called “Showcase” here in Ontario Canada and it cares all products found only on infomercials before it hits Walmart , etc. Anyway having all these bad reviews stuck in my mind, I decided anyway to go ahead and buy them. I purchased the box of three for $59.99 plus tax, totally by passing the customer service as so many of you have been having problems with and also passed the waiting time for delivery for weeks and some of you also saying months. After I got home I was scared about it fitting me right, I bought a large for my C40 size and it fit great, I am really happy I bought this bra and plan on going back for one more, wish there was more colors to choose from then the standard black, white and nude. It feels great sleeping with Genie bra on and gives me the support I need, no more poking and stabbing my ribs, with my sports bra I had it gave me the look of a uni-breast So far I am pleased with my purchase, the bra doesn’t ride up, only thing is if you plan on running or doing intense workout best double up if you have big breast.

  78. Jodie says:

    This bra is a total ripoff. Doesn’t lift or support-so flimsy I wouldn’t wear it out in public. Do not order!

  79. Missladu says:

    You can buy these at Walgreens. Don’t buy them online!!

  80. Missladu says:

    You can buy the genie bra at Walgreens and you don’t need to buy 3. You can buy 1 to see if you like it.

  81. Katria says:

    This is the worst company I have ever dealt with in Customer Service. The order went through without my finalizing it. They rip you off by not returning the HUGE $50.00 plus shipping and handling. When calling customer service, it must be another country, as they do not seem to understand English on a Return Authorization, but keep trying to sell you more product. The only way to get through to them and to make them understand is to almost be “professionally rude”. So, I am out $50+ dollars, the bands ride up and roll, no support, no company integrity, but I am taking the hit and returning them and warning all others to NOT PURCHASE FROM THIS COMPANY.

  82. Christine says:

    Ladies,

    Thank yo so much for your reviews on the genie bra, I saw the ad on TV this morning and went online about to order them till I saw they were $59.99 for 6 bras and then $15 for the shipping etc. The only reason I hesitated in buying was because I thought the additional $15 was too much. I’m so glad I was hesitant and so glad that this evening I was able to see the reviews here. I really appreciate this because you all just saved me some money on buying an inadequate bra.
    Thank you again for your honesty, you are all awesome.

  83. Connie says:

    Genia bra is a rip off company. I wore the bra for one day and it was the worst bra I have ever worn. It rolls up on the band and uncomfortable. I returned the bras over 2 weeks ago and they say they have not received the package. They were quick to charge my credit card, but slow about refunding my money. I will end up paying for the products I am not wearing. I have called the company several times. I made a big mistake in purchasing the items. The one Hanes place online have the best bras for reasonable prices. Don’t waste your money on genie bra!

  84. Laverne G says:

    Do not buy these if you are large breasted and want support for the girls!

    I made the mistake of watching the infomercial over the Memorial Day weekend while staying at a B&B with no computer to check things out.

    On the phone, they DO NOT tell you what the shipping/handling will be, they DO NOT tell you that the shipping/handling is non-refundable, they DO NOT tell you that in order to return the bras you must fork out your own money to the USPS ($17+)

    In all, I spent more than $138 on the bras and am getting less than $90 back. It took just two weeks to get the first shipment, but over a month to get the replacements. I still haven’t seen the refund – I was promised the refund today – that it will post to my credit card within 5 business days. They acknowledged the return September 1. That’s more than 2 months. I don’t think they would have ever refunded my money if I hadn’t called in today.

    So ladies, IF YOU BOUGHT THE BRAS AND RETURNED THE BRAS, CHECK TO BE CERTAIN THAT THEY ACTUALLY CREDITED YOUR ACCOUNT FOR THE RETURN OF THE BRAS. IT MAY NOT HAVE HAPPENED AND THEY WILL DO NOTHING TO ENSURE THAT YOU GET YOUR REFUND
    GENIE BRA IS NOT REGISTERED WITH THE BBB, SO YOU CANNOT PROCESS A COMPLAINT THROUGH THEM. I CAN’T GO THRU MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY – THE TRANSACTION HAPPENED TOO LONG AGO TO ISSUE A COMPLAINT FOR REFUND

  85. pamela peterson says:

    So glad I got to this site. Before buying anything online I am looking for reviews before buying, sure saves alot of headaches and I am finding that most things advertised on tv are overpriced and not worth buying! I too was looking for a comfortable bra but thank goodness I didn’t buy these! I will look for a reputable store that specializes in intimate wear, and get sized and will just pay more for a good bra or stick with my Playtex bras, which are the most comfortable I’ve found. Again gals, thanks for the heads up! Love it that we can find reviews on just about everything thanks to the internet. I am learning to look for reviews before buying just about anything now!

  86. Tracy Myers says:

    I saw an infomercial about the Genie bra. I could identify with all of the ladies, and I was so uncomfortable all the time, I decided to throw caution to the wind, and buy them. They took about 6 weeks to get here, but I have absolutely no complaints. They are all I was told to look for and more. Two weeks ago, I had a routine mammogram done and they found a lump I could not feel. The following week, I had a biopsy, that was more like a lumpectomy. I was told to wear a good bra, and should be fine. Well, I went home after surgery, put on my genie bra, and have had virtually no pain. When I went back to the Dr. a week later, he was amazed at the lack of bruising and swelling. When he left the room, and the nurse came back in, I had just put my bra on. She said that was why I didn’t bruise or swell. The bra held me in place comfortably and I even slept in it and it kept everything from shifting around. I LOVE YOU, Genie Bra! Thank you so much. I do have cancer, but we caught it fairly early. I am looking at more surgery, but with this bra, we can do it!

    • Michelle says:

      Congrats on finding and treating your cancer early!!! I am glad that the bra helped you with lessened bruising and more comfort.

  87. Michelle says:

    I ordered my bras through Amerimark. Three 2x bras in three colors (black, nude, white) were $27.97 total, including the shipping and an online discount code. Great price but a very long wait. It took three and a half months for the bras to get here. They kept saying that they were on back order. I finally got all three and they looked flimsy. I am a 44DD in 18 hour bras and before I put the bra on I wasn’t expecting much. I put it on and had to position the girls so they would fit. Let me be completely honest about this bra, it feels great. I have no back roll and I’m not being corseted to death. But with comfort comes…nothing even resembling lift or support. The girls are being lovingly cradled not lifted, shaped or separated. This is a short comfy tank top that gives me uniboob, nothing more.

    By short I mean short. There is just room for the girls, no bottom couple inches of fabric that the models in the pictures seem to have.

    The pads are sewn in and the front rouching stretches out.

    This is worth about $20.00 for the three. I will keep them because they are comfortable but even for a little less than $28.00 I will not buy more.

  88. Dolores says:

    After many weeks of seeing the ads for the genie bra, I was about to order; however I decided to google comments and must say that I was absolutely horrified (and thankful) for the negative reviews from a “statistically significant” number of women who purchased the bra! I will definitely not be purchasing!

  89. Julie says:

    I am a 40 DDD I ordered at 3X which is larger than my shirt size. I would need a 6X for these to fit!!! Absolutely horrible. I ordered the 3 free ones in a M for my mother as a gift and she likes them OK but says they don’t give any support..but she says they are very comfortable. I returned mine but not hers and I’ll BET they don’t return my money. That’s fine I just don’t want them to charge me the next two payments of $32.98. Thanx to this site, I got Kelly’s email and sent her a note asking for those future charges to be taken off. I remain hopeful….

    • Sandi says:

      Thanks for your take on the Genie Bra. I, too, am a 3D sized woman and wondered about lift/uniboob/comfort/etc. As to future charges to your account, in similar circumstances I’ve contacted my bank/credit card company. They were able to tell me what to do to ensure no future charges were made to my account . . . I’d recommend a phone call to your card’s customer service.

    • Toni says:

      Julie….contact your credit card company, they can help you get your money refunded. Call them now and ask for a “disputed claim form.”

    • geekmom says:

      You’re right, it did not even come close to fitting me even though the packaging said it would.

  90. Deb says:

    DO NOT PURCHASE – ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE BIG BUSTED! No support! Might be OK for A or B cup but still TOO EXPENSIVE. worth maybe 5 bucks ea. The BBB should be contacted – they are making a bundle charging people for multiple S&H charges.

    • G. Kaz says:

      I bought the bras a size larger and they fit me great. I think they’re better for the smaller busted Ladies. I did have to get an exchange but the girl I spoke with had an American accent. The return was there fault and I wasn’t charged a return. I don’t know maybe I got lucky because I really can’t complain about there Customer Service. Again I think they’re more suited to smaller busted Ladies.

  91. karen says:

    Thank you all! I will not be buying this product, and how wonderful these review forums are!

  92. Merideth Berkovich says:

    I bought 2 Geni Bras from Publishing Clearing House. I have had a rt mastectomy and have had to wear a prosthesisis. I put on the Geni Bra, and Wow! I did not need the prosthesis! I am amazed and very happy about it!

  93. Cindalyn says:

    I recently bought the full offer of 6 bras, they are great! Although if you want pads in your cup, you need to order them separately for $1.99/bra :'( I did not order the pads & my nipples constantly show. I am glad that I found a bra I can sleep in comfortably though!!! I love the genie bra!!!

  94. DJ Watson says:

    I am a size 12 in most things…14 would be the highest size I have ever had in tops and dresses. I ordered the L size which is supposed to be the 12-14 size. wow…it was so small…it squished my girls horribly. so I contacted genie bras and returned them at a cost of 8.50 and I asked for a replacement to the XL-1XL size. They sent them to me at a cost of $12.95. AND THEY DON’T FIT. so let’s see…so now i’m returning these ones…$82.39 was the original cost for 6 bras…including delivery. then the $8.50 to return them…and $12.95 for them to send me the next size…now I’m returning this batch at another charge of $8.50. for a total of $112.34. so I am out approximately $58.00 as they will not refund postage and handling…BUY THESE ONLY IF YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY THEM ON FIRST. DON’T BUY THEM FROM TV OR ONLINE.

    • Missladu says:

      Just buy them from Walgreens!!! I think they come in packages of two. You won’t pay shipping. I love them! I would NEVER order them online like all these people.

      • Toni says:

        These bras are also available at Wal-Mart in packages of 2 (nude and black). You can try them on in the store before purchasing, and you can get a refund if you decide you don’t like them. Be sure to keep your receipt for easier return. Best wishes to all!

  95. Kelly Westall says:

    The Genie Bra People have copied my concept of putting cups in a top ?? The BUSTFREE BRA is Australia invention, with no bad reviews, you get your order and it fits, I can not believe you are all sending money over seas when we have the best bra right hear in Australia, and healthy for your breast, http://www.bustfree.com.au will take you to our site, Our Company will be contacting the Genie Bra company and reminding them they can not sell my design of the cups as it is a registard product, Looking for comfort you need Bustfree Bra, we are no scam and look after our customers, Kelly Westall , located on the Gold Coast QLD.

  96. Stephanie says:

    I am very glad that I too read this website. I have been looking at these infomercials for weeks now trying to decide whether or not I would like to purchase one because I hate ordering from some place where I cannot go in and deal with them personally. I will have to admit…your commercials are A one. They really having you feeling like there’s no other bra for you but when you look at how many dissatisfied customers it turns your stomach. No one has $70 or $100 to waste on some bras. Why can’t people just be honest about their product. People understand…you are watching TV…the same way they can make people and cars fly they can also make a product look like is surpasses the rest. Just read the reviews before purchasing any products online or from TV. These reviews have saved me potentially $100. Thank you

  97. Peachy says:

    I came online to order the genie bras and stumbled across this complaint site. After reading the MANY negative reviews, I will not be spending any money with this company. As I was reading these reviews about dealing with people that can’t speak English and “Kelly’s” (customer service) response, I was reminded of another commercial. TV spot shows a guy in some far away place answering phone – “Hi this is Peggy”.
    Thanks to the women who have posted comments and prevented others from making the same mistake!

  98. Barbara says:

    I have NOT tried the genie bra but know a great place to get properly fitted for a bra, My Intimacy stores. they have a website with store listings. Their bras are not cheap (as my Mom used to say, you get what you pay for), but if you are hard to fit, if your straps cut into your shoulders, or if your underwires are so uncomfortable, you will love the helpful staff, gorgeous bras and wonderful fit.

  99. Katria says:

    I purchased the Genie Bra and was very angry. When I put the information into the system and hit review, it automatically charged my card without telling me the full cost of what was immediately being charged. When I called them, I was told it wasn’t in the system and to call the next morning and they could make sure the order wasn’t placed. When I got up the next morning and turned on my computer, the order had been placed and the bras had shipped. So, immediately it was $85.00 on my credit card.

    I have received them less than a week later. They appear to be nice bras. I am a 38 C/D and a size 14. I ordered large. They feel a little big with not enough support and my nipples do show. Not sure if I am going to like them or not. Just very angry with how the order was processed. I feel scammed and taken advantage of in the order process. None of the pictures show any problem with coverage. The band in front does ride up also.

    • Katria says:

      Wow…when I read all these reviews, I am shocked and appalled. I have the bras, they give no support, It cost be $51.96 for shipping and handling. The package was small enough to fit into my mailbox. I could have purchased six Hanes bras for the price of shipping and received free shipping becase of the money I spent. I went round and round with the customer service people and they have a script. No information in the bags and had to go find my information on the computer. RIP OFF COMPANY!!!!! AND NOW I AM STUCK PAYING THE BALANCE FOR THE “DEAL” I RECEIVED, BECAUSE I AM NOT SPENDING MY MONEY TO SEND THEM BACK. MAYBE SENDING THEM BACK COD IS THE ANSWER!!! ORDER NO. 21546-2011-41421-153

      NEVER BE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO PURCHASE FROM THIS COMPANY. THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF.

  100. mary lou rothman says:

    DON’T BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!! It is false advertising. The implication is that it is comfortable, fits beautifully and gives lift. NOT. It didn’t have any more support than the bra they give you in the hospital after you’ve had surgery. I was disgusted when I spent $60, waited three weeks, tried it on and my breasts hung as if I didn’t even have a bra on. Sure, you can return them but you pay for postage and handling so they made $20 on me!! Pretty good scam if you ask me. I’m hoping I can do more by contacting the Better Business Bureau.

  101. SH says:

    I watched you infomercial many times, I have been in search for a good comfortable bra for months now and can’t seem to find one, so I watched and watched finally I found one at BBB, it said to shop your shirt size pick the larger of the size you wear, so I choose medium I wear either a small or medium shirt depending on the style. I put it on and it rolled up, so I went on the Genie Bra web-site to ask why it was rolling up and they said it was to small, THAT WAS ALL I WANTED TO KNOW. So I went back to BBB and tried to exchange it and they were out of the size large so I returned it.

    I get home and my phone rang every hour from Tri Star Products trying to find out why I called them, when I told them, they said they are running a special buy 3 get 3 free for $65.97 includes shipping, they also said they are offering a KIYOSEKI PRO (SILVER) flatiron, I explained to them I have short very baby fine thin hair and I need a curling iron to get fullness in my hair, they told me it can be used as a curling iron and said I could receive it for $19.99 today originally $129.00 and told me many Stylists use them in their shop, I asked my Hairstylist and she said she has never heard of it. So I finally decided to order after about many calls day after day. (That should have told me right away not to order)

    It was after I got my confirmation per email that I decided to goggle search the KIYOSEKI PRO (SILVER) and the reviews were terrible. I received my 3 size large Genie Bras buy 3 get 3 free plus my KIYOSEKI PRO (SILVER) will not hold curl or give volume in my hair a big waste of money. Tried on the Bras and they rolled up, so I called Customer Service and told them they are still rolling up and they told me they run very small you need the next size up, so I agreed to exchange for the next size up which was XL/1 XL, I received the Bras and tried it on and it still rolled up, absolutely no support, no lift, so I called again and told them, this time I got some man I couldn’t understand from another country and he said try bigger size he talked me into a 3 XXL.

    I am 5’4″ weigh 125 pounds and wear a 36 C in a normal bra, I have never in my life wore anything in the XL size let alone a 3 XXL size. I received the 3 XXL last Friday and tried it on and it still rolls up very uncomfortable always adjusting and pulling it down, very hot this Bra doesn’t breathe. So I was charged – First Shipment –

    The following item(s) have been shipped to you:
    QTY ITEM PRICE
    1 FREE PRIORITY PROCESSING $0.00
    1 KIYOSEKI PRO (SILVER) $19.99
    1 SEAMLESS BRA L BUY 3 GET 3 FREE $39.99
    GROSS: $59.98
    TAX: $0.00
    P&H: $33.97
    TOTAL: $93.95

    My shipping wasn’t free they charged me $33.97.

    Now after reading all these reviews I am also afraid I have been taken for a ride the KIYOSEKI PRO (SILVER) doesn’t work for my hair it is sitting in my closet wasted my money there and have tried many Bras that all roll up not comfortable.

    I am still in my 60 day guarantee window, but after all this I feel my time and trouble and hassle from so many pressured phone calls from Tri Star Products I should receive a full refund of $93.95 and I shouldn’t have to pay for all the items to be returned, the company can’t deliver a good product they should have to pay not me…..

    Very disappointed, very deceiving from the infomercial. Need to return all items at their expense with a full refund in order to be satisfied with my experience and all the trouble I had to go through to try to get these to fit so I could wear them.

    I will send another update IF I hear anything from this Company.

    • Jennifer Patterson says:

      Thank you all for your reviews…I am a single mom and currently unemployed but was going to order my teenage daughter the Genie Bras. After the horror stories..I will not be ordering. Thank you so much for your reviews!

      • Connie Robinson says:

        I was considering ordering these bras but after reading the angry feedback from dissatisfied customers all I can say is thank you for saving me money. I won’t order anything from them!!!

    • tina says:

      at 5’4″ you should have ordered M size – I have ordered the genie bra for me and my girls – M size – we are 5′ and from 100 to 135 lbs and the genie bra with the pads are the best thing I have EVER worn and am about to order 12 more! I do not recommend the ones without pads – customer service was great and sent me free of charge the ones with pads – yes, the sales tax is ridiculous, but in the end worth the product!

  102. lizzy says:

    Thank you all Ladies, for your horror reports. I,too, am full figured & could not wait to order my genie bras, but thanks to your honest reporting (I stumbled on this website) I will be making NO purchases to genie bras!!

    I am with those of you who do not to send your money out of the U.S. and deal with (foreign) customer service that can not even speak English.
    Buy local! It’s great for our economy!!!

  103. Kelly says:

    Hi everyone, my name is Kelly and I am a Genie Bra representative. If anyone has any issues with the product, please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I am certain that I can answer all questions and resolve nearly every complaint. Also, please feel free to make any suggestions.

  104. marie says:

    I usually wear size S tops and 34A bra and I just bought 2 genie bras size M because I don’t like clothing to be too tight. The S would have been way too tight and the inserts were a little bit too big and I trimmed them at the bottom, 5/16 of an inch and they now fit perfectly. My ribcage just below my bust-line measures 30 inches. I’m guessing that even a L might be more comfortable.

    Unless you like clothing to be snug, definitely buy a size larger than the sizing instructions suggest.

  105. Cynthia says:

    My “as seen on TV” Genie bras arrived on Friday. I was so excited.

    Now I’m starting the return process. Why? They didn’t fit at all. I used the size chart and ordered carefully. While the bra “fits” (meaning I can get it over my arms and chest), my breast are much bigger than the “cup” area, so they spill over, there is no definition between my breasts, ridiculous spill-over, and no support period, none, zero.

    Then I read reviews and looked at my own receipt and see I’ve spent 26 dollars on a very lightweight package which 4 weeks to arrive.

    Disappointed and disgusted.

    • Kelly says:

      Hello Cynthia, I am sorry to hear that you had a problem with the product. Please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I have a resolution to your matter.

    • Elaine says:

      Ditto to Cynthia> As Cynthia says…Exactly. They shouldn’t even offer this quality bra in the full busted sizes. I have worn “minimizer” bras in a 40 DD for years, and they are much more satisfactory. I thought this would work as a leisure bra, but it provided no lift, provided no separation and was too suffocating to be comfortable. To add to that the band rolled up immediately.

      In requesting my refund. I TOO WAS TOLD OUT OF MY $85.97 …only $59.00 would be refunded! So I’m charges $26.00 to try the product.

      I’M NOW WAITING FOR A “SUPERVISOR to discuss the amount of the refund. This was a very lightweight package. NO WAY was the UPS charge $26.00!
      AS IT STANDS NOW… I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU ORDER THIS COMPANY.

    • Kim Blake says:

      Oh dear, I really wish I’d had the sense to look at reviews of this product BEFORE I ordered it. I specified L size and quite frankly, although this IS my correct size, I doubt that putting two bras together would really cover the girls !! I also question whether “Kelly” is a real person (in which case she must be working 24/7 and have no other life) or is “Kelly” a cover name for any employee who is tasked with replying to irate customers?

      I must say that when I called the 1300 number to ask about sizing issues the young gentleman (!!) who answered was very pleasant … unable to help but pleasant. However, what I want is a product that fits properly, as promised in all those television advertisements. Thanks to all who have taken time to comment on this product.

    • Mary says:

      Oh great I wish I saw all of these first, I thought that $26.99 for shipping was High . I guess I am the next victim to be out money.

      And I still have not received them yet!

  106. Gina says:

    Oh, I’m so glad I Googled to find reviews of this product before plunking down my hard-earned money. The infomercial is so well done and I was so excited about this bra… but now, there’s no way I would take a chance on it. Not only am I not interested in dealing with the hassles of trying to return something that doesn’t fit, but on principle I won’t deal with companies who outsource their customer service departments to India or anywhere outside the US if I know about it beforehand. Two strikes and you’re out, Genie Bra.

    • Kelly says:

      Hi Gina, I am sorry to hear that you have been discouraged from ordering the Genie Bra. There are plenty of happy customers who are extremely satisfied with the product, maybe not so much on this site. If you would like, please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com and I can give you more information about the Genie Bra. Also, I have some suggestions on how you can still the try the bras.

    • XCalburLdy says:

      Gina, just so you know if a company outsources their CS dept overseas they must have one in the US as well. ALL you have to do is ask if you are speaking to an agent in the US, if they say no, tell that that you want a US agent and they have to either transfer you to a US agent or arrange for a US agent to call you. I have done this for several products that I purchase online, including my Norton Anti-Virus Software, plus it put the jobs back were they belong, in the good old USA.

  107. Kay says:

    My Genie Bra has squished my spine. I couldn’t figure out why my back is killing me…it’s my Genie Bra. I loved it at first, but a month later, I can’t wear it.

  108. Coleen says:

    I ordered the genie bra from QVC…followed the ordering instructions. When they came they were way too small and not at all like I expected. I am so disappointed.

    • Kelly says:

      Hi Coleen, I’m sorry to hear that your original order did not fit you. I would suggest calling QVC to see if they can have the correct size sent out to you immediately.

  109. Patricia Koritta says:

    I first ordered a 2X but it did not fit.I called to return and was told they told me the wrong size and would send a 3X. I received them and they fit but my breasts were drooped…NO SUPPORT.I called customer service and was told that I should get the ones with the padding.I stated I didn’t need padding but was assured these would give me support. I just tried one on today and what a joke! The padding was so small that my breasts runneth over! They fit horribly!!! I called customer service and the women didn’t speak English well enough to understand. But I did understand that I had to pay the return shipping!!!!! So now I am not only out the original $25 shipping but now have to pay to return. This is a ripoff! They screw you w/the shipping. DO NOT BUY THESE BRAS!!!

  110. Genie Bra Question says:

    When is genie bra to be sold at walmart?

    Do you take out the liner when you wash the genie bra?

    The pads that come in the genie bra do you leave them in or take them out when you wash the bra?

    Does the ahh bra and genie bra show your nipples when it is cold

    • Kelly says:

      Retailers dictate what products they offer. We are expecting Wal-Mart to carry our products soon, but I cannot provide you with an exact date. In regards to the liner pads, yes you need to remove them before you wash the bras. As for your final question, we offer the pads to provide additional coverage. However, everyone’s body is different and this may or may not occur depending on a variety of outside influences and how a certain person’s body reacts to that. Again, I would like to clarify; I am with Genie Bra customer service and I cannot answer any questions regarding another company’s product because I am not familiar with their policies and product.

  111. Genie Bra Question says:

    why is the stella bra site gone?

  112. Rebecca says:

    Well, my genie bras finally arrived and I would have to say that I like them very much. I am fairly flat chested and find that normal bra straps always slip off and the bras don’t do much for me. I ride horses and find the bra gives my little boobs good support and the pads do at least give me some shape. The bras are quite ugly though so if you’re out on the town looking to pick up you’d better wear something else as any bloke would run a mile if he saw you in the genie bra.

    I spoke to their customer service reps about delivery a while ago and they are terrible and rude and can’t speak proper English. They obviously use a script and if you ask any questions that are not on their script they just repeat the same thing even though it is completely irrelevant and random. Don’t bother trying to call customer service they are useless but the bras are not bad.

    • Kelly says:

      I appreciate your kind words and I apologize for any difficulties you have had with us. We are dedicated to providing excellent customer service and are constantly seeking to improve in all areas. Please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I would like to ask you some questions in regards to our services. I understand that you must be busy, but if you could take the time I would appreciate it.

  113. Kathy Peterson says:

    I am getting to be a really frustrated customer as well. It is advertised to order your shirt size and this certainly is not the case. I tried the next size up and still have to re-order another size. I wish I would have read these reviews before I got tangled up with this company. I like the way the bra’s fit for the most part except for the pads. I think they could be bigger so they fit better in the bra because they do tend to move around a bit which makes me a little self conscious.

    My credit card has been charged for my full order as well and with that order I had ordered the lace trimmed bra’s in one size but then realized that I also needed the larger size in these as well with pads. They did fit a little better than the regular style with pads. My point is, though, that I have been waiting since July 25, 2011 for this exchange for the Lace Trimmed Bra’s with Pads and still have not received them. I was told that they had an overwhelming response to the lace trimmed bra’s. I can definitely see why women would rather have the lace trimmed vs the regular style but can’t figure out what they were thinking when these lace ones are only offered once you order the regular style !!!

    I am still dealing with exchanging bras, rude and hard to understand sales persons when needing to exchange, deal with backorders and even talking to a Supervisor who treated me the same way as the sales people. I thought we were the customers which need to be handled much better than we are it sounds like. Is this because they are getting so many complaints and then they won’t work with a person on returning the shipping and processing charges when things have gone on so long, waiting for backorders and such.

    I even saw these same bra’s for sale at Bed, Bath and Beyond and you don’t have to pay for the shipping and then deal with rude sales people.

    In ordering the exchange sizes once again, I am being told that these are on backorder but will be shipped out soon. This is what I was told with these lace bra’s back in July. How long do I have to wait for these? I asked this question to the sales person and he said it should be in a couple weeks and if not then maybe another couple of weeks !!! I asked the question about refunding my entire order $$ plus processing and handling since I have been dealing with these bra’s for so long and he adamantly said that the processing and handling charges wouldn’t be returned. This is total bologna. I wonder if they understand when they won’t work with customers, that their product certainly doesn’t get recommended but instead is talked about how hard this company is to work with. I wonder if the gal who made and patented these bra’s knows what is actually going on and if so, would be concerned about how her customers are being treated. Word gets around enough, they will be losing customers vs being willing to work with us, they would probably gain customers based on the experience.

    I would love to be contacted by someone who has some authority in that company so I could work with this person and get satisfied. Right now, I am not at all. Even when calling to inquire about the backorder status (especially on a product that I have already paid for), I was treated like the person didn’t want to be bothered with any of this. Isn’t this what customer service is suppose to be about.

    • Kelly says:

      I apologize for any frustration this has caused you Kathy. My name is Kelly and I am sure that I can help answer your questions and solve the problems you are having. Please email me directly at customerservice@geniebra.com with your order information so that I may look up your account and assist you.

    • jennifer says:

      I am in the same place you are I bought the bra in the shirt size its not even close to the size I need and now the “as seen on tv” store wont give my money back and now I am trying to get through to customer service of Genie Bra and have had to deal with a lot of frustration and BS. So I definitely understand how your feeling and thought customer service came first but apparently not.

  114. Diane Tiehen says:

    This is a copy of the letter I just emailed to Genie Bras:

    I ordered my bras (6 of them) in July. They JUST (October 14) arrived. I received multiple emails about receiving, sending etc…dates included…all erroneous and misleading. After the length of time it took to get them, returning them is an enormous hassle and after reading these reviews, getting a timely refund is unlikely. I am ready to write this off as a huge loss (I make $900 a month on Social Security so $85 is a lot of money for me to lose). If I have to take a loss of this, I will be sure to spread the word to other unsuspecting victims of your less than truthful advertising. And terrible Customer Service.

    The sizing is a joke. I wear 3X and am a B cup. O ordered, per your advice, a 3X. I am spilling out the top and there is no dividing of individual breasts…they are squished in there like a heavy duty sports bra. I look like I have one boob that goes from one armpit to the other. Real attractive. I might as well wrap an Ace bandage around my chest. I look flat with cleavage. I am so disappointed. I had told several friends that I was waiting for them and was excited to report how wonderful they are. Instead I am telling my friends to save their money. Most of the ‘fit’ reviews were told they ordered the wrong size. We ordered the size you told us to order…the same size as our tops. Again, I would love to return them and get a full refund but I am doubting that is worth the inconvenience and the amount of work it will take to follow up multiple times, as was necessary for receiving them. And is returning them on MY dime? What a scam.

    I am anxious to hear what you are prepared to do to make this right for me. I have tried two of the 6 bras thinking maybe the first one I tried on was the wrong size. They are unfortunately all the same size, the size you told me to order. I am only a B cup and there is no lift, there is no separate…just smash.

    customerservice@geniebra.com
    My email is ….
    My mailing address is …
    My order number was 01982215466230443832

    I do not want to talk to anyone on the phone. I require someone who speaks English well enough to be understood. I no longer have any faith that you will make this right. I do not have the original packing slip…the package was torn when it arrived and the packing slip was in pieces. How do you suggest I return them? And by the way, I’d like YOU to pay for it, it’s your product, your faulty sizing, your erroneous claims regarding delivery. I would like my credit card to be reimbursed in a timely manner without my needing to make multiple calls or wait 4 months as I did for the bras that take “4-6 weeks for delivery”.

    I await communication from you. Shame on you.

    Diane Tiehen

    I’ll write a review when I hear from them and again when I receive the refund. Today’s date is October 19, 2011.

    • Kelly says:

      I do apologize for any inconvenience the backorder may have caused you Diane. Certain sizes are in high demand and we are trying to have every order shipped immediately. The bras should make you feel constrained. The issues you have presented seem to be a sizing problem. Many of the issues that arise with the bras are due to incorrect sizing. I understand that you used our sizing chart to determine the bra size you were going to order but, I would like to make it clear that if you are between two sizes you should order the larger size. I do understand that our customers either order the incorrect size or receive a size that does not work for them. Therefore, we offer an exchange program for customers who order directly from us. Please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com and I can give you more information. Also, the order number you provided is incorrect. We do not have your order number in our systems. However, I am sure that I can help you. Please email me as soon as possible so that we may resolve this matter.

  115. Linda Miller says:

    When I went to place my order online it went through as processed BEFORE I saw the 25 dollar postage charge. I would never have ordered this and then immediately I called and they would not cancel my order. They did finally agree to a rebate of $12.99 but I am going to check to make sure I get this.

    I have no major complaint with the bra but I feel that the purchase process is very deceptive. BUYER BEWARE. I will not recommend.

  116. braless says:

    Ordered 3 bras months ago size 16/18 waited 5/6 weeks they arrived size 12/14 GREAT! got in touch with them (THIS WAS THROUGH HIGH STREET SHOPPING WEB SITE).

    THEY SAID MUST BE PROB AT WEAR HOUSE so would send me the right size, I told them not to bother as it would all take too long.

    I asked them to send me a pre paid envelope as they wouldn’t give me the postage and packing money back, so after waiting weeks and weeks and phone call after phone call to say still not received A pre paid envelope they said they have posted them out. strange that! as they can send your order out but cant get a label to you.
    after asking for someone at head office (something which they don’t have) I spoke to a manager who said he would send a van to pick the bras up the next day.

    After a couple of weeks I rang to see if they had put my money back on my card, you guessed it they hadn’t but said they would, a few more weeks went by and its supposed to have been put back on my card including the p&p I had paid to get them. they said I only get the bra money back but I insisted they give me a full refund as they sent the wrong size. apparently it cost them £25 to send a curious to pick them up.

    The sizes are small so if you buy one I would go for the bigger size but please DON’T order from HIGH STREET TV, IVE NEVER HAD SUCH BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE LIKE THIS. I told the manager that but he didn’t seem all that bothered but he did get my money back, thanks for listening ;(VERY UNHAPPY CUSTOMER)

  117. tanya pitt says:

    I just received my Genie Bras I ordered 6 and was so excited that they had arrived as my wires had popped out of my last bra But my genie bras don’t fit , my shirt size is XL I ordered XL and no way are they Australian sizes so now I’m selling all six bras so I can re-order I’m thinking about ordering the 3xL, Question what is the difference in cup size for 2 XL and 3 XL.

  118. RH Kaysser says:

    I have ordered a Genie Bra over 2 month ago , the money has been taken out of my visa acc. 2 month ago and I have not heard from them at all.

  119. Deborah says:

    I like the comfort of the bra, but the pad is too small for my cup size. They would be good for a B cup but I am a D cup and they do not cover but a small portion. When I try to arrange them to the shape of my bust, they end up way too high. If I lower them to fit the bottom comfortably then the point on the pad is about 3 inches too low and make me look saggy. You need to make larger pads for the larger busted women.

    • Kelly says:

      Thank you so much Deborah. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and we will look into the suggestions you have made. Please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com, I may have a solution to your problem.

    • Penny says:

      I agree that these bras aren’t meant to be for large busted women. I wear a 2x in tops and ordered a 3x in Genie bra. The pads are way too small and make me squish out the top. There needs to be more material to cover. I am having knee surgery and ordered these to wear in the hospital while recovering. Will never wear as a normal bra.

  120. Laura says:

    Was so excited to come and order! Commercial made it seem like the perfect bra. Glad I stumbled upon this page first. Saved me frustration and $$.

    • suzie q says:

      Yeah I am with you there. I see the commercials and tonight my husband mentioned it. I am 50 and so far lost 60 pounds. Wanting to get a bra to handle the saggy issues and I am also large chested. Definitely glad I didn’t order online. I May still go to BBB tomorrow and check out the bra, once, but still undecided. I am more annoyed with Kelly who thinks every thing is a size issue…whatever! I search everything before I buy it so Kelly go away and let people comment and vent. I search for a week before I decided on a cell phone.

      I don’t care the cost of the bra I am looking for something that works! I think if I ordered online and saw the shipping cost I never would have ordered. I ship a lot of things and order online all of the time and that sound outrageous! Will post again if I buy one at the store tomorrow.

      • suzie q says:

        Well went and got them. got the 2X cause that is a little larger than my shirt size and that doesn’t fit, pushed the “girls” right out the top. the good thing is I got it at BBB so I can return it with out hassle, they don’t have any other sizes. I will try to find a good quality underwire bra now :(

  121. Michele S. says:

    Okay, so I did not order the bras directly from the tv ad but through Dr. Leonards catalog. I did get them and I am pretty happy with them so far. I normally wear a underwire bra and have tried bras without them before and hate them. This one actually feels pretty good. My only complaint is that it does not breath well. I live in Texas and it is HOT!!! So to have a bra that just makes you hotter is not COOL! lol Great comfort and overall pretty pleased with my purchase!

  122. Natalie T says:

    Well to start I also purchased the 6 for a ridiculous price of $85.00 , but of course us women are looking for comfort and great look. I received my shipment and was totally disappointed, and I could swear they didn’t look like the TV commercial, I called and told them if they were sure they had sent the correct bras. They said they would send me smaller size. Just so happened I went to Bed Bath and Beyond, I opened the package to check it out and it was totally different to what they had sent me. To top it off I just received the smaller size bras, and they’re exactly like the ones at BBB. Why didn’t they send me the correct ones in the first place. I mean, what was the purpose of sending me the cheesy ones. Wow they think they can con us with there cheap product, watch out ladies do your homework.

  123. Andrea Hutchinson says:

    I purchased the Genie Bra and was terribly disappointed from the purchase to the refund!

    I was excited that [hopefully] I had finally found a bra that would fit my [very] full figure. I hit the website to be happily presented that my size [4x] was actually there.

    4 weeks later I had not received my order. I received just 1 email that the order was received. Tracking the order from the Genie Bra site was not an easy process, but once I figured it out I was able to assess that “the order had been received”; and that was all I could assess.

    So I called.

    A young man apologized and told me that the 3 and 4 X sizes were their most in demand sizes and they had been back ordered. I explained that I had received no contact about the back order. Again, he politely apologized and refunded me the shipping and handling for my wait.

    I thought this was a great thing – I would find I was wrong.

    Three days later I finally received an email that the order had been shipped, and the electronic payment of $59.99 was taken from my card. I began to excitedly await my purchase, which took about another week to arrive.

    Finally it came, about 8 weeks after my original order. I happily opened my package to disappointment!

    There they were, my TINY Genie Bras! They were very small, at first appearance to be the size of a typical B… maybe a C cup bra. Yet the packaging was clearly marked 4x as was each tiny, cute bra.

    So, hoping against all hope, that they really were made of miracle material and strength, I attempted to try on my bra as directed by the infomercial. Embarrassingly, my eyes were more than correct!

    These 4x, full figure friendly bras would not have fit a woman of any size higher than SMALL! There was no Genie in these bras!

    I checked the website and there it was a 60 day return policy. So I, the same day I received the product, packed it back up to ship back the next day.

    About a week later I received an email that the return had been received, and I began to await my refund. Which did not come and neither did any communication as to when I would receive my refund. So, again, I called.

    Well! The representative told me that the original 12.99 refund (remember the refund extended for my inconvenience) was a “FINAL” sale; on top of that the rep was incredibly rude!

    I was firm and told her that she was not understanding me and if she could not process my purchase refund then she needed to connect me with a supervisor. Several minutes later she came back on the line and informed me that her supervisor had approved my refund and apologized that the original rep [who refunded the 12.99 s&h] was mistaken in his information. I explained that the original “refund” had nothing to do with the return and she, again was rude.

    I picked my battle, thanked her for her time, clarified that I would be receiving the entire $59.99; which she affirmed.

    It only took two days for the refund to appear in my account, however, it was short the $12.99, which was never even taken from my account in the first place, because the courtesy was extended before the company processed my purchase.

    So this morning I will take the time to contact them one last time to secure my entire refund.

    I will never do business with Genie Bra again. Even if they do resize to “REAL” women’s sizes.
    From start to this step, right before, finish this was a disappointing experience.

    Customer Beware: If the product appears to be too good to be true … It’s usually a lie.

    There is NO Genie … NO Magic … NO Miracle in this product. Genie Bra is a lie and a disappointment.

    • Jax Thibert says:

      I am so grateful to you for writing in. I too am a 4x and was going to order them until now. I had the same thoughts as you, finally something in my size. How wrong would I have been? I am a single parent on a fixed (very fixed) budget and was trying to find the money, relieved that I don’t need to find it now and that I didn’t find it. I cannot afford to waste that kind of money. Thank you again, Andrea and I wish you good luck in getting your money back.

    • sandy rovane says:

      these are not for full size women. Anything made in China runs really small. I am a size 16 on the top and wear a 1 X in most stuff from China. To get a Genie Bra I had to go to 3 X and I love them. The 2 X rolled which meant it was too small.

  124. Sarah Waite says:

    I talked my mother into buying this bra as she has difficulty putting on her bra because of physical limitations. I will also tell you that she is well endowed. After she tried the bra, she sent it to me to try…I also am well endowed.

    We both came to the same conclusion, you would need to wear 30 of these bras at one time to have the same support as an under wire bra. If you want a leisure bra, buy this. If you want a bra that will support you…don’t buy this bra.

  125. Jenn says:

    I just purchased this tonight at Bed, Bath, Beyond. I read that most of the comments concern shipping and lack of product. I walked into BBB and they had a wall full of these. I also only paid $20 for 2 bras.

    Ok that said: I will not run a marathon or exercise in them. There is support for my giant ta’s. I wear a 42dd. My husband even notices a difference. My personal opinion, about these comments that people post, is that they are not getting the correct size. I was able to take one of the bras into the bathroom at the store and tried it on. I was pleasantly surprised.

    For someone who hates wearing bras and takes it off as soon as I am able, I can sleep in this,

    I will definitely suggest this to others and purchase more.

    • Jenifer says:

      Thank you Jenn…My size also…what size Genie did you buy?

      Jen

      • sue adams says:

        I also returned the 2X and opted for the 4X because I am a 42 DD. Just got my 4X after waiting for 4 months, and finally accepted the 4X in black. Well guess what, I do feel the 4X is any larger than the 2X. The cup size is what I need. I also look squeezed into this and my breasts are mashed. Any answers. Why cannot you order by breasts size?

  126. Wendy - Sydney says:

    Thanks to all, who took the time to write their personal story about Genie Bra. I was about to do an on-line purchase but quickly did a google search which landed here.

    As 99.9% of comments are disappointed with the Genie Bra item and postage, I’ve now decided not to purchase and will advise all my friends to leave them alone.

    Thank you for saving me money and stress due to a poor quality of product and extreme postage costs.

    • Sylvia says:

      Smart move, Wendy. I’m in the process of mailing mine back now. Talk about being ripped off!!!! I would advise ANYONE that is contemplating buying these pieces of JUNK not to waste your money. Playtex has an all cotton underwire that’s pretty comfortable for about $15…..well worth it compared to these!!!

Thanks ladies for being helpful.

  128. Genie Bra Question says:

    I have side spillage from my bra why?

    I am a slim person, but I am big busted. I wear the right size bra, so why do I have back fat peeking through my shirt?

    • Kelly says:

      The issues that are mentioned are consistent with the bras being the incorrect size. I doubt that you are wearing the correct size. I would suggest going up in size. I can assist you with this if you email me at customerservice@geniebra.com.

      • Sylvia says:

        How about a little truth in advertising “kelly” your product is j-u-n-k…are you the “steve” that I orginally spoke to in India?? How you can work for such a sleazy company is beyond me….what a scam!!! How this company can blatantly rip people off, especially in this economy is simply unconscionable!!!

        I’m contemplating, only after reading all the negative remarks, of bringing my complaint to the attorney generals’ office for false advertising.

  129. Genie Bra Question says:

    Why does the genie bra have slits on the side?

  130. Genie Bra Question says:

    why is genie bra double the price in australia?

    • Kelly says:

      The Australian market determines the value of the product in that region of the world. Additional charges may be due to customs fees, shipping charges, or other expenses in order to provide the product in that geographical area.

  131. Genie Bra Question says:

    why is genie bra more expensive than aah bra?

  132. Genie Bra Question says:

    why is my genie bra padded?

    • Kelly says:

      The original product is not padded. We offer our customers the option of upgrading to the padded bras. The padding is removable.

  133. Genie Bra Ouestion says:

    why don’t the Genie Bras come with an invoice?

    • Kelly says:

      We do provide invoices to our customers. They are located on the outside of the packages in a plastic sleeve near the shipping label. We also email all the information to our customers if they provide an email address.

  134. Genie Bra Ouestion says:

    why is the size chart on the geniebra.com different from the size chart at bed bath and beyond?

    • Kelly says:

      All of our size charts are used to maximize the information provided to our customers in order for them to make an accurate purchase. We inform all of our customers to use their numbered shirt sizes in order to determine their size in the Genie Bra. If you or anyone else would like help in determining their size, I am always available by email at customerservice@geniebra.com.

  135. Genie Bra Ouestion says:

    why isn’t small size in Genie Bra sold in bed bath and beyond?

    • Kelly says:

      They could just be out of stock of that size in that particular location. I would suggest trying another location or ordering directly from us.

  136. Genie Bra Ouestion says:

    why would the band on my genie bra roll?

  137. Charlotte says:

    Wow!!!! It’s a shame that this company has bad business ethics! Someone needs to do something about the amount of customers that have been taken advantage of! False advertising is illegal and must be stopped! I am so appreciative to those of you that told your story about the scam Genie Bra has put out there and continues to do so! I will never buy this product and will discourage others from future purchases!!!

    • cindy says:

      I agree this is the worse bra ever. Did you try talking to customer service? I really want my money back!!

      • michelle says:

        This bra is not for top heavy women. I had spillage on sides and top. The person taking the order insisted I was a small/x small. Waste of money. Pain in the ass having to take the pads out.

  138. Alyn says:

    I ordered 9 bras back on July 13th. As of today’s date (October 8) I have received a big fat nothing. I can’t speak as to the quality of the bra it’s self, but the quality of the customer service and manufacturing is abysmal. My order status is noted as “in progress” where it’s been since Genie Bra billed me and promised these bras would ship in 4-6 weeks.

    I really wanted these bras and really believed they would work. I am really disappointment. Order at your own risk. My experience has not been positive.

    Alyn

    • Donna says:

      Please be aware that they must ship within 2 weeks of charging your account or this is fraud and theft. Report them to the Better Business Bureau and send a email to Kelly at customer service@geniebra.com as she has several comment posted above

  139. Terri says:

    Well this was the biggest waste of money ever. I figured out this scam but way to late. They don’t care that if you return the items, they make their money on the shipping and processing. The bras can’t weigh more than a few ounces so the postage has to cost them near to nothing. After waiting almost 4 months you get these flimsy bras that surely cannot hold up anyone’s breasts. They are 96% nylon and 4% spandex. I bet to make these cost this company a dollar for 6 bras if that. I am sure they were made in a 3rd world country where they exploit the people with meager wages. DO NOT BUY THESE BRAS!

  140. Angie says:

    I am so mad. I paid $$$ for shipping and handling and they do not use a reputable shipper. Some company called Streamlite with no contact numbers just a web form. This no name company drops it off at the USPS and they don’t put a delivery confirmation on it. (For $25 bucks in shipping, they can afford a $1 confirmation tag.)

    I ordered my items on August 9th. I received notice they shipped on September 21st, but Streamlite (that no name shipper) says it was picked up on September 26th and that they dropped it off at the USPS on October 3rd. Its now October 7th and still no bras.

    I just got off the phone with “Brian” who had a heavy Indian accent and said they would file a claim with the USPS and then reship the items. But, how long do I have to wait and will they arrive? That remains to be seen.

    My advice, save your money and your sanity and go to Lane Bryant and buy Cacique bras. I will not be making this mistake again.

  141. A. Pierce says:

    This is actually my second order from Genie Bra. I really liked the first set as I am quite large & they were much more comfortable than most my other bra’s. HOWEVER…..my biggest complaint is the amount of time it takes to receive the order. First order took about 12 weeks. This time it has been 124 days & I only just now found out the shipper actually has the order to deliver. The DELIVERY & HANDLING COSTS, are outrageous! I purchased the Ah Bra at the same time that I ordered Genie Bra’s. Delivered 3 weeks later with shipping costs of $8.54. The shipping & handling for the Genie bra’s $25.98. This is ridiculous. Then I find out they will be delivered with my regular mail by the mail man (this is after they were shipped by common carrier for 10 days). The handlers must have to wear diamond encrusted gloves for it to cost this much. The post office only charges about $8.50 for Priority mail. LAST TIME I WILL EVER ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY AND I RECOMMEND YOU DON’T ORDER AT ALL! Thank for letting me vent.

  142. Bridget says:

    Genie Bra is a JOKE…My mother ordered these items before summer even began. A week after she had cancelled the order the bras arrived. I have been going around and around with this company including within the past 1/2 hour (oh, thank you for your comments here, because prior to this sight I was connected to INDIA) to get call tags or postage paid tags for these things to be returned. I was told withing this past 1/2 hour that I was e-mailed proper tags to return these items. Haven’t seen them yet, but I did get the usual address label that I am expected to pay the shipping. What is the law, if you are sent something you did not order it is a GIFT.. This company is HORRIBLE and their tactics are a definite SCAM from where I have been sitting. I have read on here that they are supposed to be presented on QVC. Well, I wonder where my next letter will be going, and I suggest that anyone who has had the same horrible experiences caLL QVC as well. I am sure they would be interested in your feedback.

  144. Betsy Aguiallar says:

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME…..place order on 7/8/11… Order shipped 9/27/11 (about 10 weeks)…..order returned 10/5/11. There is NO support! I was skeptical from the beginning, what offended me most was when I called to obtain the required ‘return authorization number’ they first tried to sell me a more supportive bra…one with support cups…what the heck! I’ve already waited 10 weeks, spent an outrageous $25.98 in handling and processing for a sub par, thin, elastic training bra !! They did not have a toll free number (1-973-287-5154) and their customer service is out-sourced to a non-English speaking county. The customer service rep. was very hard to understand. Getting these suckers back in the mail today…..wonder how long it will take to get my c/c credited???

    • Andrea Hutchinson says:

      Betsy … you may not get your credit without further phone calls! When I called to inquire to the refund time period I was told it was a “final sale” … well a supervisor and a rude rep later they were refunding my entire $59.99 which this morning showed up as $47.00 …

      Good Luck.
      Andrea

  145. Jo says:

    Finally after a long wait,my bras came. While they are fairly comfortable, they offer absolutely no support what so ever! I am not sure if I am sending them back or not – sounds like that is almost as long a process to do as it took to get them (almost 10 weeks)

    • Amy says:

      You should send them back… I am… it took me 3 months to receive mine, and they are CRAP!! No support at all. I don’t know what the “models” in the commercial were wearing, but it was not this Genie Bra!!

      • Sandy says:

        Took forever to receive the bras. Now that I have them, the quality if very poor. There is no support but if you have read other reviews, I’m not saying anything different. I’m shipping the bras back at my own expensive after paying $25 to get them shipped to me in the first place. Oh yeah, and upon receiving the order back from me, there is a fee involved that will reduce my refund by another $25. This is definitely a scam people. Don’t buy this product!

        And, lastly, the return address they I was given does not exist! I’m very angry that I’ve been ripped off!

  146. FE Murphy says:

    All of the comments above are correct, in my estimation. They do not support – they squash! They dig into your shoulders! They roll up under the breasts! They do NOT SUPPORT! I returned mine for a refund, seems like over 3 weeks ago and received half of what I paid for them. I was charged $105. (including $25.00 shipping) and received $77.00. I totally agree – this company is a SCAM! Like most greed running rampant throughout our country, they WANT the money, but do NOT want to give it back when it’s due! Stay away from this company and the Genie Bra!

  147. lucia says:

    Purchased the genie bra from their very convincing infomercial first time they sent me the wrong size took forever to get them on the phone to return for the right size, finally after about 2 months I received them. What a rip off their shipping and handling charge was outrageous !!!! not to mention the false advertisement about life and support, these bras have no lift or support, you might as well wear no bra at all, they are good for sleeping and hanging out in your house that’s it!!! they are garbage, and it makes me so mad that people get away with ripping people off with this bull! and they are not cheap, but you can probably get the same bra at your local .99 cents store, don’t waste your money.

  148. michele says:

    Well I have read the reviews and am VERY disappointed in what I have read. I was looking so forward to trying this product because I have such a hard time finding a bra that doesn’t hurt. I’m about a 44D and apparently if you are a large woman this product REALLY doesn’t work. I’m thankful that I didn’t get ripped off like alot of these poor ladies on here.

    • Mike says:

      After reading these comments, I think the consistent deception, the loaded processing charges, and the hoops required to even try to get a partial refund, lead me to believe a class action suit can’t be too far in the future. My wife got hers today, after 2 months, and we were absolutely disappointed. There was no documentation in the package and I don’t even know what the pads are. Don’t get suckered.

    • lauren says:

      Hi Michelle, I rec. mine in the mail after one week of ordering and I must say I love them..I’m a very saggy C cup thanks to my kids and I have enough support. I did have the cups added to mine and I’m not sure if this makes the difference in them or not..They are like the pads bathing suits would have in their tops…It seems everyone is unhappy but I am not..I actually want to order more in other styles whenever they become available..I like the lace and leopard but I saw they are out of stock…That’s my only complaint..I’m young (32) and would love to have something a lil prettier!!! I will my band on mine does roll up, but I’m pretty sure it’s b/c I don’t have a flat belly!!! I’ must say if I did I think the band would stay flat..But it’s not bothersome when it rolls up, in fact I can’t feel it at all…It’s so comfortable…Had to give this bra some props since it seems everyone is bashing it…SO if you order be sure to get the pads or cups whatever they are called added it’s worth the extra $2 and I think you’d be happy!

  149. Michele says:

    Walgreens ad today showed the bra on sale so I gave it a try. I got one size smaller and it held better. I imagine the recommended size would give me more freedom than I usually get.

  150. Scarlett says:

    hey!!

    I bought my bra at Bed Bath & Beyond and saved a a lot of stress. I bought it with a coupon and I saved money and stress, then when I discovered that the bra didn’t work!! I returned to the store in a very easy way!! Cash on your hand again!!

    I went to Soma store an I bought an excellent bra that smooth you back and have good support, the price is around $50.00 but is worth it. The back is wider so doesn’t show any back fat if that is your problem.

  151. JPehrson says:

    I was just getting ready to make a HUGE mistake! I saw the infomercial from Genie Bra and was ready to purchase the whole shebang for myself, my mom, and my 4 daughters..and my new daughter in law…. at $85.00 each (including S&H) it seemed like an OK venture – 6 bras – roughly $15 bucks each… OK. fine – I’m poorer than a church mouse, BUT…. for the new “miracle bra?!” I was willing to make the sacrifice to bring comfort to the loved ones in my life.

    NOW – after reading just some of the HUNDREDS of negative reviews…. my jaw is just swinging, here! UNBELIEVABLE! Occasionally, you read about the unsatisfied customer – that happens – sometimes, no matter what a company does to make good, there are always the ONE or TWO who can’t be satisfied. But THIS!!! WOW! Tons of passionate responses from so many with the SAME story…WOW!

    Now, I’m not the kind of person who must learn from the school of hard knocks. I can absolutely learn from others people’s experiences. So, what’s the point? THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU – for all of you who took the time to send out the warning!!! I’m so sorry that you had a bad experience – (I know it happens now and then, but I hate that it does). Thank you all, for sharing and saving me from what appears to be a HUGE headache and a HORRIBLE product. Good luck in your attempts to deal with the “monsters!”

    As for Genie Bra: All I can say to them is, “SHAME ON YOU! Don’t you people know that your FIRST priority is supposed to be your customer!??? – You remember….. the people who PAY YOUR BILLS?! If you make your consumer your priority, they will be happy, you will be happy and whatever issues you have with your products should be workable!” Think about it.

  152. Edna Philippus says:

    I ordered the Genie Bras thinking I’d finally found something great. I waited over 2 months before they got here. They are awful. I ordered a 2X because that was the size t-shirt I wore. I usually wear a 44D. I don’t know who they used for models, but they weren’t D cups! The first thing it did when I pulled it up was roll at the bottom, which they said it wouldn’t do. There was “spillage” everywhere AND back fat. When I called to get the RA # to return them, the person I spoke to was rude and would not connect me with a supervisor or give me a supervisor’s name. I will never order anything like this off TV again. Even though I watched the advertisement numerous times. I won’t be fooled again.

  153. Kelly says:

    Hello everyone. I am a customer service representative with the Genie Bra. I have been reading reviews online and have been disappointed to hear that some of you are having problems with the product. On the other hand, I am pleased to see that satisfied consumers are leaving comments. I want everyone to know that many of the problems that I have read can be rectified. Please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I am here to help.

    • Sharon P says:

      I just got 2 of these this past weekend, very happy with them. Kind of surprised at all the poor reviews. The bottom band does roll up, but that’s the only issue I have with them.

  154. Judy says:

    I ordered my Genie bras on August 10 and was told it would be 3-4 weeks before delivered. After more than the 4 weeks, I checked my order status online and it indicated that the order was “in process” and would take 4-6 weeks for delivery. It is now 7 weeks and I still have not received them; and, on top of that, the order status is STILL “in process.” Where are they? For over $30 in shipping fees I should think that the order was at least processed or a notation made that it was backordered, or SOMETHING!

    • Jo says:

      It took mine 9 weeks before they were shipped, but I still haven’t received them. 10 days to ship – kind of ridiculous.

  155. Sara Hatcher says:

    I wore one for six hours and had to take it off…it cut into my underarms so bad it left marks. I wear a medium shirt or 8/10…the sizing said order your shirt size and said a L was a 10/12…since I’m a little bigger than a skinny 8 I ordered the L. Yes the material is soft, no it doesn’t support (uplift)…very disappointed.

  156. Toni Molden says:

    I purchased my Genie bras at a local department store and LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I wear a 38A which is impossible to find. So I would settle for a 36A and looked ridiculous. 1. Back fat from too small circumference. 2. Cups were too close together so I looked stupider. LOL These are VERY comfy and my boobs are back where they belong. I ordered the large according to package size chart and it works. I guess if I had larger breasts it would be a problem but, alas, I have tiny boobies and am very glad.

  157. Maria says:

    Really confused about what to do now and have a couple of questions…

    Can it be worn as a sports bra?

    Will it make me look smaller as I’m currently unimpressed with my lacking size?

    And will it be visible under my many vest tops??

    Just want a comfortable, not too pricey, enhancing bra!

    • Kelly says:

      Hello Maria,

      Yes you can wear the bras while exercising and no it will not make you look smaller. We also offer additional padding if you would like the additional support and more coverage. The question regarding if it would be visible really depends on the style and material of the tops you are wearing. If you have any more questions please email me customerservice@geniebra.com.

  158. Daneen says:

    Because I was skeptical and didn’t want to spend a lot of money ordering on-line or from the infomercial I was delighted to see the bras sold at the local Bed, Bath, and Beyond (if not satisfied easily returnable plus decent deal if you use one of their coupons). I bought one set of two (nude/black) in a medium, my bra size is 32DDD and although it is not exactly as is appears on the infomercial I’m happy with the purchase.

    It’s not just pull on and poof perfect boobs…it’s pull on, bend over, tuck in, separate, pull down, and then although not perfect, it’s pretty close. You do have to adjust every now and then because the band does hike up. Adjusting the band and pulling down from the back worked for me to keep the lifted look. Using the pads also helped with the lift and support but with a semi form fitting t-shirt the pads were visible.

    Overall though I’m happy to have a bra for day to day outfits that allow me to give my 3 (expensive/limited use) bras a break and have a longer useful life.

  159. Brenda says:

    The Geine Bra is a ripoff,they don’t fit right then they send u a different size and still don’t fit. This is the best part,I sent them back they got them on the July 25, it is Sept.23. I have called them on Aug.16 and talk to Frank,he said in 3 business days call on Aug 25 Susie and Sept.16 Peter and then a Supervisor,then Sept. 23, April-all said in 3 business days. I don’t think I’ll ever get my refund. I think something needs to be done with this Company.
    I would like to know if anyone ever got one to fit!!

    • Marina Kolbe says:

      Hi I work as a journalist and wanted to find people willing to speak up against these scams from both Genie and AHH bra. This seems like false advertising.

      CONSUMER RUN FROM THESE ADS. I wanted someone who is interested in speaking out against this fraud to contact me at marinakolbe@yahoo.com

      Thanks,
      Marina

      • Celeste Burns says:

        My husband bought my two sets of three Genie bras hoping he would find a comfortable bra for me. What a rip off!!! The time it took to get the wrong size bra in the mail was 3 months! When I returned them for a larger size, I was hoping they would redeem themselves by producing an excellent product. What a joke!! The bras are horrible! I could not be more unhappy. The material is so thin you could see my nipples through it, and there is no support. Has anyone informed them of the effects of gravity???? I am returning the bras and hoping they reimburse me faster then they deliver a poorly designed, over priced, glorified sports bra!

  160. Karen says:

    I can’t actually say what I think of the Genie bra since I ordered them close to 2 months ago and have yet to see them. I can; however, comment on the company. LIARS! First I was told 4-6 weeks which is ridiculous. I order clothing online all the time and I never have to wait that long. Well that time came and went and then I was given another ship date and now that has also past and they still haven’t shipped them. On top of that I think I spoke with one of the rudest and least helpful CS reps ever!! Not only did he talk to me in a condescending and unapologetic manner, he basically told me they would ship the bras when they felt like it. You can keep them!

    • Nannette says:

      I’m having the same problems as well. Ordered August 7th and still no word to date. My acknowledgement from Genie Bra didn’t even give me a tentative date and when I try to use their online tool it doesn’t work. Not impressed at all with this company. If I can get a refund and cancel my order please let me know.

      • marcy says:

        Well, SUPPOSEDLY all you have to do is call customer service to cancel, BUT, who knows when they’ll hit your bank with charges? They told ME that they don’t pull the payment until your shipment goes out. Have they already charged you???? I will NOT do this again. I first ordered on May 3rd or 4th and called in August to see why my order was still “in process”. I was told that they were on back-order and that if I wouldn’t cancel my order, they’d add…..oh, I don’t remember what line of crap they gave me, but I was told it wouldn’t be much longer, so I said okay! Then a couple of weeks later, I go to check the status and it tells me the order was cancelled! Freaks!!!! So I call back SEETHING and was told that they were sorry and RE-placed my order, with the promise that it wouldn’t be but a few more weeks. THAT was on August 4th. I just called today and guess WHAT???? They’re on back order and should be here around October 26th? I said things I shouldn’t have and when the CSR asked me if that date was okay, I said “what choice do I have?” and hung up, but NOW, I’m thinking, I do have a choice. I’m cancelling right now. I will have to watch to see if they stay out of my bank account though and they freakin’ well BETTER!!! I’m FURIOUS! What’s the company name they’d use to pull payments with, anyone….please let us all know so we’ll know what to watch for. I don’t check my account that often because of online identity theft! Those of you waiting, GOOD luck!!

        • Ro Ro says:

          I bought the six bras and from the infomercial I needed to order my shirt size. I did that and found they were too tight. I didn’t send them back because I read in the reviews how difficult it was to get your money back, or get them to answer so I gave them to my friend and my daughter who is a size smaller than I am. My daughter tells me she did love them but they didn’t hold up to wear very well. She reports to me the stitching came loose around the bottom band.

          I later ordered the Ahh Bra’s in a set of three. While they are thinner than the Genie Bra I like them better because there is no band to come detached from the main part of the bra. So far they have held up to wear! I vote Ahh Bra!

          • caryn says:

            I’m seriously considering getting a few of these, now there is a third company & I heard even a few more that sells these all with different names. I was searching for a source that would possibly compare them all.

  162. Madelyn Miller says:

    I bought two sets of six (two sizes). I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. It was not “uplifting”, I looked saggy and my nipples showed through even when I wore two on top of each other. I returned it on time and kept the post office receipt. Called about it when I did not get a credit. They said it takes weeks to get the refund. This is a scam. If I had just report it to my credit card as a misrepresented product, they would have reversed the charge.

    • Kelly says:

      Hello Madelyn. My name is Kelly and I am with Genie Bra. I’m sorry to hear about the problem you are having with your refund. It does not take weeks for us to process a refund. We usually are able to process a refund once we receive the products back. Please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com and I look into your account and see what the problem could be and resolve it for you.

    • Vera says:

      I ordered the Genie Bras but they did not work for me tried two different size, I am waiting on the refund, which I believe should take 3-5 day. I spoke with Justin today, he stated that I should have the refund in 3-5 day or less. Where is my refund?

  163. ashley says:

    I just received my bras in the mail. They are freaking awesome! I love them! They are so comfortable and provide great support. My Bra size is 38 dd and I ordered an XL. I can’t describe how great these feel! I think that most people who have a problem with these bras aren’t ordering the correct size. Don’t be discouraged by all the negative comments. These truly are wonderful! I’m a believer! !!

  164. Crystal says:

    My husband got me 6 Genie Bras for our anniversary…and I LOVE them. Comfortable, easy to wash/dry, lift is perfect ( not so high that my boobs look fake). Lol, my hubby loves the results also…he cannot keeps his hands off! I would like to try the pads, to see how those work with it. I am a 38D, and I have the XL. It is the only bra I have found that my boobs do not spill out from the sides, and front. I will definitely be ordering more. Saw the insert in the packaging, and cannot wait to get the animal print, as well as lace, and would love to see more color choices.

    • Kelly says:

      Thank you so much for your comments Crystal. Please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I would like to speak to you in regards to your bras. I am so happy to see so many good comments.

      • Mon says:

        Kelly, are you dumb? “so many good comments? LOL, Shame on you and your company, for taking people’s money and delivering very poor service and a quite low quality product

        And for all of you posting reviews, THANKS, you saved me from buying a disappointing product and having lots of trouble trying to return it

  165. Amanda says:

    I purchased the bras from the website, I am a 44DDD I wear a 3xl shirt, they say size up so I ordered the 4xl. They came pretty fast. I was so excited to put them on. What a let down literally. They didn’t even cover half my boob! My nipple was almost above the top of the bra! I pulled and tugged but they didn’t cover no matter what I did. And the material is cheap feels like beefed up pantyhose. Anyway I thought maybe they shipped the wrong size so I took it off and checked nope it was a 4xl. I though well maybe its just this one so I tried the other two on and the same result. I was so depressed. I ended up sending them back and getting my money back less shipping and handling. They scamsters really take you on that mine was 26 dollars to ship.

    long story short if you are well endowed don’t waste your time!

  166. Dixie says:

    Scam! Do not recommend for you to buy. Materials so cheap. they actually make more money on shipping and handling. You do not get refund of S&H when you return the item. When I called 10 hours later to cancel my order I was told that the item has already been shipped. I was told to just return the item. Now I am going to pay for the S&H. I checked my email and the package was not shipped yet when I contacted them. What a rip off. Customer Service no good.

    • Shannon says:

      A lot of these seen on TV scams make their money solely on the shipping and handling that they WILL NOT refund because the actual value of the product is the shipping. I had this experience when I bought the Kymaro Body Shaper. It didn’t fit of slim and they charged exuberant shipping that they would not refund. So ladies, remember, if the company charges ridiculously high shipping and don’t offer to refund that as well if you are dissatisfied with their product, then they are most likely a scam!

      • JUANA says:

        HEY LADIES, THANX FOR THE GREAT FEEDBACK. I HAD WATCHED THE INFOMERCIAL AND I HAVE SEEN THESE BRAS ADVERTISED IN DR. LEONARDS CATALOG WITH FREE SHIPPING. DECIDED TO GO ON-LINE AND SEE WHAT I COULD FIND OUT. WELL, YOU HAVE ANSWERED MY QUESTIONS AND I HAVE SAVED A LOT OF TIME, MONEY AND STRESS. I WILL NOT ORDER THIS BRA FROM ANYONE BASED ON THE FEEDBACK. 2 OR 3 GOOD COMMENTS DO NOT OFFSET 30 BAD COMMENTS. AS FOR THE COMPANY C/S COMMENTS WHO KNOWS IF SHE IS KELLY ON LINE. SHE COULD BE ANYONE OF ANY SEX. NO PRODUCT SHOULD TAKE THAT LONG TO SHIP AND THE RETURN POLICY IS CRIMINAL. SO MANY OF THE TV ADS ARE JUST GARBAGE AND I GUESS I CAN ADD THE GENIE BRA TO THE TRASH LIST AS WELL. THANX FOR SPEAKING OUT.

    • Idontlikeretail says:

      If you cancel any order and they ship it anyway, just mark the parcel “return to sender” and they pay the shipping.

  167. CFSFlorida says:

    I am small and Genie Bra did not work at all for me. The straps were too wide on the shoulders, they fit too high under the arms and the cups flattened my breast and were not flattering. They are over priced when ordered on line, didn’t know I could buy them locally so I’m having to go through the hassle of returning them and losing the money I paid for shipping! They make money on that, I lose on this deal!

    • Kathy says:

      To CFSFlorida:

      I had the same problem. The Genie Bra totally FLATTENED my small bosom!! I’m 36C, tall slim, wide shoulders, small cup.

      I love the idea of the Genie Bra but I wish they would define the cups better, i.e. more tucks each side of the cups. There’s no “give” in front? Their TV ads have DD women? No small bosomed woman wants a bra that makes her even smaller?

      TO: Genie Bra: If you would put a few more tucks each side of the cups for more definition, I promise I will buy them. Thank you for listening.

      Kathy

  168. Rachel says:

    Thought this would be the answer. What a disappointment! The pads were not compatible with hugs – who want to hug hard things?? Without the pads what little I have was now flattened and I looked horrible. The bottom curled up (I was just trying it – not wearing it!) and I had a new “muffin middle” where it ended. Back into the package and back. I did get my money credited back promptly, but had to pay the shipping, of course. If you can’t try it on in a store, don’t buy online.

  169. Mad says:

    I bought the genie bra for my size 40C which is a Large. When it arrived I was very excited to try it on right away. It felt good and seemed to support the girls with and without the pads. Don’t know about you all but I wear my bra at least 2-3 days if its clean before washing. As the days went by the bra started to lose its elasticity and boobs looked droopy. It made sense because the bra is made up like a stocking and after being worn for a while it looses it hold.

    I had read other reviews even where I bought it to buy up a size since it does become droopy after a while. So I bought the smaller size Medium and thought OK for sure it will hold my stuff firmly. Again anxious to put it on and try it but this time it was a little too snug and made double spillage boob. Now it fits like a sports bra but then again after a while of wearing it 2 days in a row it loses its elasticity and droops. I had expected to be lifted all the time not just for a day then become droopy.

    The Genie bra is not so genie after all. This is the closest to a warning as I could get. I bought both of these genie bra’s one at a time from eBay both were brand new just to try. Even though they average about $16-18 from eBay I’m glad I didn’t buy the 6 for $60 + shipping from the genie bra website. If you absolutely want to try it I suggest doing some research to find one at a cheaper cost from eBay or other online stores so you won’t waste too much of your money.

  170. Erica McManus says:

    These bras are made VERY cheap. I ordered the XS/S, as I needed as much support as possible, just having gone through a double mastectomy in mid-July, 2011, and currently undergoing reconstruction. When I ordered these bras on line, I ordered two XS/small sets (one set “apparently” free) for myself, and then I ordered two large sets (again, one set “apparently’ free) for my teenage daughter. and a flattening iron.

    The price seemed a little high, but I figured I was getting 12 quality (NOT!) bras, and a straightening iron for under $200; I didn’t think twice about what the total came to. I did not know how much “p/h” (processing/handling) was until AFTER the order was paid for. It was $59.95! I waited three weeks for them to come, opened up the package immediately and put on the XS/small.

    It was white, but as sheer as panty hose. No nipple coverage. No lifting/separating. I opened the larges. I do have to say they were made a little better than the XS/smalls (nicer, thicker material), but they would NEVER fit on my daughter. I put on a large (I am 5’4″ and weigh 115 lbs. and have a size B cup) and it fit like a sports bra on me. This would NEVER fit on my daughter who wears a large shirt, has a size D cup and is 5’9″.

    I immediately called and spoke with a Genie Bra customer service person who stated that I could send ALL the items back that were received and to put my order no. on the package. Inside the package, I sent a letter explaining that I bought the bras for myself because of medical issues and they were NOTHING like I expected, and that I have mounting medical bills, and complained about the P/H charges that were not disclosed (on line or on the infomercial that prompted me to purchase these in the first place) as well as the misleading advertising that induced me to purchase these bras!, and asked that they be kind enough to reduce the P/H charge and/or refund all or part of it, because it was as much as two sets of the bras cost, i.e., $59.95.

    I got my refund about a week after they received my merchandise, and I only got back $119 and change and they kept the $59.95 processing. It cost me an additional $12.50 to send the items back to the USPS. As such, I am out almost $72. DO NOT FALL INTO THIS SCAM. THESE BRAS SUCK! THEY ARE MADE VERY CHEAPLY. DO NOT BUY THESE BRAS!!

  171. Jenn Yeager says:

    Complete garbage! My mom and I were so excited to get the Genie bra when we found out Bed Bath & Beyond was selling them. We got them today – it says “order by your shirt size”, well I’m an XL shirt and a 40 DD so I got the XL Genie bra – it’s TERRIBLE!!!! It’s soft and comfortable all right but it doesn’t fit at all! They say it gets rid of back fat and “spillage” in the front -NO it causes that terribly. My mom who is smaller than me ( a large shirt size and a C cup) tried on the XL that I got for myself and she has spillage in the front even in that one. Trust me ladies – if you’re expecting it to look like the women in the infomercial, don’t waist your money. Doesn’t fit, zero support, flimsy, it’s just a mess. BOOOO!!!

  172. Shannon says:

    I ordered Genie Bra for myself and my daughter. Of course, as in the advertisement I ordered my shirt size. What a JOKE! I sent all back and ordered the next size up, another JOKE! Still too small. So, I sent them back and ordered the next size, two sizes larger than my shirt size.

    While waiting for that order I found them at CVS, cheaper by the way. I bought two sizes larger than my shirt size and still small. I have spillage EVERYWHERE including falling out the bottom because now the band is too big! And the bands do roll, that is false advertisement and Genie Bra should have to remove that from their advertising, among other claims. I found returning was easy & customer service helpful.

    I called and they sent me shipping label, both times, put label on packages, resealed & took to Post Office. The last order I didn’t even open, just took to Post Office to return. With all the shipping back & forth I doubt they made any money off me for S/H. Now it’s been over a month and my credit card has not been reimbursed.

    I called Genie Bra today and was told it will be done within 3 to 5 business days. I should not have had to call to get my refund. They could have sent me an email if there was any doubt whether I wanted an exchange or refund.

  173. Sacha says:

    do NOT buy this product these people charged my credit card 3x more than what I was told over the phone my bill would be and when I called to question it I basically got the run around, every person I talk to say they couldn’t help me in fact my bill wasn’t on their records SCAM! DON’T BE FOOLED!!!

  174. Linda Johnston-Bennett says:

    If anyone sees “Genie Bras” advertised on t.v. DO NOT BUY them. It’s a rip off. They do not fit and they do not enclose a shipping form to be able to return them. The number they have you call, passes you around and eventually drops you. I tried it several times during their office hours and it dropped me every time. That was a wasted $97 I didn’t have to throw away

  175. Bridget says:

    Terrible customer service. Waited over two months for bras, actually cancelled order, and then order was shipped. Called “customer service” in INDIA to have call tags sent and request full refund (i.e. shipping) and was told they could not credit account like that. Asked to speak to supervisor and was told they had none…was put on hold for over 5 minutes…operator came back on and asked if I would like to hold longer…ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! What kind of company is this.

  176. Barbara says:

    The frames from their infomercial are on their website.
    https://www.geniebrafashionista.com/

    In the frames that run from 19 to 23 seconds, the model is putting on a black bra. Look closely at her back. Sure looks she is wearing a beige bra underneath. My guess is that it’s a padded strapless bra. Disappointing. I had seriously considered this until I caught the deceptive advertising.

    • Shelli says:

      This made me laugh, I had to look.

      Worse than it being deceptive advertising I think it is not a bra but her own loose wrinkled skin that is getting squished up when she’s pulling the tight bra on. I just had 2 people look and agree, pause it you can see.

      Poor lady, if I were her I’d rather have it be a beige bra than loose skin.

  177. de says:

    I anxiously waited six weeks for my genie bras to arrive only to be TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED! Unless you are a A cup, do not waste your money. Its so small even the 1x is like a c cup. You are better off buying a sports bra at walmart! My boobs are constantly falling out and popping out of the top, which is like the only reason I wanted it in the first place, to stop ‘Falling out’ everywhere! What a big waste of money and the customer service people are so rude!

  178. Debra T. says:

    I bought this from Bed Bath and Beyond. I did not get from the web site of the genie bra because of all the bad reports I had seen online.(By the way QVC will have these in Oct.) I can not wear wires because they hurt me. I wanted this bra because I had turned to sport bras. I am a 38C cup and I could only find a 2xl in this. I bought it thinking I could take back if way too big. I wear a L top. I got it on and the type of material it is, it fit like a glove. Mine do not bind up on me at all.(Compared to the Ahh Bra which does and is really thin compared to the Genie) The pads came in the box and I put them in. NO problem doing that either.Simple. The material is NOT thin at all and there is a double thickness there. Giving lots of support and it has got to be the most comfortable bra I have ever worn in my life. I usually wear Victoria Secrets but no longer!!! I love love love these bras! Feels like you are in nothing at all. If unsure of your size, I suggest go up. Even if a couple sizes because my 2xl fits wonderfully. Better up than down I think because it will be too tight on you. Allow for shrinking with washing too. I hope you all enjoy these bras as much as I do. And NO, they are not padded and so the feel is different on you. I wear mine all day everyday.Not just a lounge bra!!

    • Kelly says:

      Hello Debra, my name is Kelly and I am a customer service representative with Genie Bra. I am happy to hear that the product worked so well for you. I would like you to email me at customerservice@geniebra.com.

      • Madelyn Miller says:

        I would love to hear from Kelly. I think this a a scam that should be reported to the Better Business Bureau. I ordered 2 sets so the cost was $120 but included shipping. I paid to send it back. Never got a refund. So I am out $120 plus return postage (about $3).

  179. fran wilber says:

    I ordered on July 27th and it is now Sept 13th. The customer service dept is in India and they do not speak very good English. They also tell lies like they have shipped my order and if you call again they say they did not and will this week. If you call the following week they will say they are out of stock. I still do not know if I will like the bras. So if you have alot of time to wait I guess you should order. I don’t want to wait anymore

    • Kelly says:

      Hi Fran, my name is Kelly and I am with Genie Bra. I am sorry to hear that you are having a problem with our customer service department. If you would like, you can contact me at customerservice@geniebra.com and I can give you up to date information about your account.

  180. Susan Pasquarelli says:

    I absolutely love, love, love my Genie Bras! I don’t think I will ever buy any other bra. Have been searching for this type of fit and comfort all my life.

    Problem is, ordering from Genie Bra takes forever…..to receive. Now almost 3 months and still on backorder. Really, now they should really offer some real great discount, since one has to wait so very long!!!! This part is frustrating…..I may now just order from eBay, they won’t take forever to receive!

  181. Ivana says:

    I received my bras with 2 weeks of ordering them. If you want a bra that “feels like you’re wearing nothing at all” it’s not the one for you, however good luck finding one that feels like nothing at all. I am F cup, trying to find nice, moderately expensive, and most of all comfortable bras is next to impossible – even with professional fitting and $120 dollars later, the underwires pop out after a few months, or snap. The sides dig in and the straps tend to roll and cut into my shoulders.

    The genie bra is a nice change, it is comfortable. More supportive than a crop top (which don’t come in my cup size anyway), however no less supportive than a normal t-shirt bra. It gives a nice minimizing effect. No cutting or digging in. If I wear them only to work that’s half a week of comfort.

  182. Kelly says:

    Hi everyone, my name is Kelly and I am with Genie Bra. I can assist anyone with any issues they are having. Please email me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I am here to help.

    • regina barfield says:

      Am curious about the back log of orders. Have placed new order one week ago and have heard nothing yet. You are always taking a risk when ordering from the Internet. I just hope my credit card had not been charged yet. Lets just hope for the best as this new product sounds great.

      Thanks.

      • Kelly says:

        Hi Regina. No we do not charge your account until the products are shipped out to you. If you leave your email on file we can keep you up to date on your order status.

  183. Aida Lara says:

    This is a complete scam, the product is made so cheap, the feel of it it’s cheap everything about it is fake. if you try returning them, they charge you $20 USB processing and handling plus the 10 you pay from your own pocket. Let me just say this processing and handling is a complete excuse to take money away from you. so basically you keep less then half of what you paid for them. Tristar products its the name of the company and they have 100’s and 100’s of products on the market all are complete trash. They live off return money and fake products.

  184. Barbara Almli says:

    I purchased a two pack of Genie Bras at my local CVS pharmacy which carries many of the “as seen on TV” products for $19.99 plus tax.

    I am a 36 C and my issue was straps falling off my shoulders. Straps on these bras don’t. I also was concerned about getting them off and on as I had some issues with sports bras; these are easy to get off and on.

    I did notice that the band definitely rolls up, so if that issue is important to you, you probably wouldn’t want to buy them. At least if you get them from a local store, you can take them back for a refund.

    I would never order from a website that charges exorbitant S&H. I usually only order from websites where the shipping is FREE. For a $10.00 bra, its not bad and has some good points. NEVER BUY FROM THE WEBSITE

    • Diane says:

      I got mine from CVS too a few days ago and it is very comfortable. Had a bit of a problem at first finding where this secret pocket was to insert the padding. Gosh, it really was a secret! LOL. But all in all it is very comfortable and the straps stay in place very well. The bottom band does ride up a bit though but than again they didn’t have any in a 2x so I took a chance on a 1 x so that might be the reason.

      That is my only problem with CVS and their as seen on tv products. They don’t carry enough in all sizes.

  185. Bernadine La Barrie says:

    I will like to order but I cannot order because I do not live in the USA I live in Trinidad And Tobago this is in the Caribbean I will like to get some of the Genie Bra. How can I order please tell me how.

    • Susan Pasquarelli says:

      Try eBay!!

    • Shannon says:

      No! Don’t buy Genie Bra or the Ahh Bra. They don’t work. Did you read the reviews? If you’re are large busted (like me) then maybe you should try the Enell bra which you can find on eBay too. Or just go on Amazon.com search for bras and then see how many stars they get. I only bought the Enell because it had five stars overall because it’s one of the best for supporting the larger sizes. Please, buy any bra but this one.

  186. Bernadine La Barrie says:

    I will like to order but I cannot order because I live in Trinidad And Tobago why not deliver in the Caribbean I will like to get some Genie Bras.

  187. Maura Cavaleri says:

    I am so glad I read all this before ordering. I was up early and had the TV on when I heard the infomercial. Being a DD and struggling for years to find a good bra, I was immediately interested. But a couple of things caught my eye:

    1. Every busty girl I know is leery of the bottom band at the base of the bra. They roll up on sports bras, strapless, you name it. So what had they done to stop that from happening – turns out NOTHING! Genie bras roll up too.

    2. The material looks flimsy, the models are ALL standing around in 3″ heels – who does that in real life.

    3. And then I found this site and knew NOT to send in anything, it was a scam. I wish I could remember the bras that everyone was talking about on Oprah. I heard a lot of good reviews.

    • Maura Cavaleri says:

      Also I am so glad that I read all the way thru these comments. I had no idea that the Miracle Gravity Bra, the Ahh Bra and the Genie bra were all the same product!

      When you are big-busted, you are always looking for a comfortable bra and these people just play off that! BOO!

      Thanks for all those who took the time to post their comments. You have helped countless women avoid getting ripped off.

    • Dee Long says:

      The bra that Oprah often recommended was Wacoal — sold at finer department stores – can run over $60 each but they are a great bra and you can often find them on sale at Bloomingdale’s, etc.

  188. Margaret K Brown says:

    I kept seeing all the Genie Bra ads and was willing to give them a try plus I had gotten a coupon through my e mail. I wear 50DD and a 3X shirt as I like my shirts very loose. I actually thought about ordering the Genie Bra in a 2X but ended up ordering 3X. At the end of the order, I was offered 6 more bras for even less money. In the end, I ordered 6-3X bras for myself and 6 XL bras for my friend for a total cost of $110…$70 was for bras; $40 for shipping. That should have been a warning! When the bras arrived, within a reasonable time, I really liked how they looked and felt. Then I tried them on…I guess I should say I TRIED to try them on. I could not get them over my shoulders or my hips. Not even close. My friend came over, tried on a black XL and it fit her like a custom made so she went home happy. Of course, we matched the sizes before she left and guess what? There wasn’t 1″ difference between a XL and a 3X. She called me about 2 days later to say she wanted to send her bras back too…seems the black one was the only one of six she could get on…the other five were all too small. Now, I have spent an hour trying to figure out where to send the bras and also wondering what I can send as “proof of purchase” since there was nothing but another ad in my package. I love “Return Rd.” They probably just grind up the bras and stuff Chinese toys with them…they can certainly have all six of mine> I just hope I get some money back.

  189. J Sutton says:

    I saw the infomercial for the Ahh Bra and convinced my husband that I HAD to have them. Well when I got online to order them I found the site for the Genie Bra, with a better deal than the Ahh Bra. They appeared to be exactly the same, so I ordered the Genie Bras instead. I placed my order on 8/31/2011 and received it today 9/9/2011. Not only was it super fast shipping, but this is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. It is exactly what they promised it would be. No back fat, no spillage, great separation. I LOVE THESE BRAS!!! And I promise I’m not getting paid to say this, it is just the truth.

    • censi childs says:

      what size bra do you wear? it seems that the bigger women are having more problems- as a bigger girl, I understand that. but right now I am wearing a 38C and they really just don’t fit well… I have hope for this bra…..

  190. Katia says:

    I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this product. These bras are a joke. They are no more than a soft sports bra. The shipping & handling charges outrageous. DO NOT get suckered like I did. I feel stupid for not seeing the shipping & handling charges for the scam that they are. The idiot I spoke to (Kurt) could barely speak English. He proceeded to offer me a $10.00 credit if I kept the bras. He offered to waive the S&H charges if I kept the bras. UNBELIEVABLE. Scam me once shame on me. Try to scam me twice — well, I can’t print what I’d like to say….

  191. Marian Newman says:

    After reading all the negative reviews here I got spooked and tried to cancel my order, fearing that I had been “taken”, but was notified that my Genie Bras had already been shipped. This turned out not to be a bad thing. Contrary to others’ experience, my order arrived in less time than had been promised. I got 6 bras for myself (size S), and 6 bras for a family member (size L). We are both very happy with them. I wasn’t sure whether to get her the L or XL, but L was okay for her and she seems to like the Genie Bra even more than I do. I bought the optional pads and am very glad that I did since I can wear these bras with t-shirts and other summer tops that are not too low cut. They don’t work with all my clothes but they are a nice relief from underwires, clasps, and straps that slip off your shoulder. There are some problems as others have mentioned with the bottom of the bra rolling up but not enough to keep me from wearing these bras.

  192. DEBI says:

    I am glad to read these reviews. I love front hook bras, of which are becoming few and far between so thought I would think about trying the Genie or Ahh Bra. But after viewing these comments I think not. They sound just like the commercials “too good too be true”. Thanks for saving my stress factor.

  193. Genie Bra Review By Patricia Mccall says:

    I ordered my Genie bras, buy 1, get 1 free with extra shipping and handling. I was advised that my order would be approximately $90. Imagine my surprise when I saw that they had doubled the order and billed my credit card for $171. Why would I do this? They had nothing to say except that when they received the bras back, they would refund my account. I AM PERSONALLY NOT THAT EXCITED ABOUT THE PRODUCT. I WILL NEVER ORDER FROM THEM AGAIN.

  194. Lisa K says:

    Ladies, I am infinitely grateful to you for the detailed feedback regarding your mostly horrible experiences with this product. I am a 38K cup size so I have to get custom fitted at one specific place that offers bras with amazing support, including standard and sports bras, as well as feminine and sexy bras. They run $40-$55 each, but last a long time and actually do what they are supposed to. Goes to show, you get what you pay for. When I couldn’t find the shipping cost on the Genie Bra site, I was immediately suspicious, and that is when I decided to do some online research and found this site.

    The shipping cost is ridiculous…I have ordered items from the Internet that weigh in excess of 15 pounds and the shipping is $7, so $26 for some bras? And it is non-refundable because they know most people won’t be happy with the product, very smart on their part when you think about it. And this little Customer Service shark named Kelly who is stalking everyone on here claiming nearly every complaint is a sizing issue? LOL She is clearly not reading the complaints very carefully. Even if that were true, then they need to fix their sizing chart.

    But when I’m reading words like “flimsy”, I am a smart enough cookie to realize that has zero to do with sizing…too bad their Customer Service rep isn’t. Not that I trust an employee or Customer Service rep of any company who is unable to correctly spell words like “definitely” and “compliment”. Again, a million thanks, ladies, for saving me some money and a lot of regret/frustration!

    • Kristin says:

      OMG… you where the exact same size as me! where do you get these custom fit bras because the last set of bras I purchased were almost $100 each at Dillards they were the only place I found had my size.

    • Susan says:

      I’d also like to know where you get the bras since my daughter is a 38J and has a real problem finding bras that fit or last for a reasonable price.

  195. Cynthia says:

    I watched show on TV, switched channel, went back, switched channel. Obviously scripted, not true about quality, stupid, boring, waste of time. Take it off the air.

  196. Mandy says:

    This TV show is so stupid. Who cares about how bras fit. It’s senseless, boring, take it off the air.

  197. Terri S. says:

    I bought these because I saw the commercial for big busted women wearing them.

    I’ll go with the fact that they are comfortable, but they don’t actually lift and separate at all that I can see.

    Worked great for my 70 year old mom though, so I gave them to her.

  198. Cindi Lombardi says:

    What a SCAM!! Nothing but a very thin sports bra. They are cut weird in front of the armpits, so I have a raw area on 1 side and a blister on the other. And the bottom rolls up. Very expensive trash!!

  199. Barbara says:

    Stay far away from this website and the product! I was charged $90 for the bras that are not worth 90 cents. Then they charged me twice. It took 4 phone calls and a call to my bank to get them to reverse all the charges. It’s a dreadful product. Save your money and go to a reputable store for a fitting.

  200. Sylvia says:

    Thanks for the heads-up ladies. Saved me some money and time!

    • corinne t says:

      I am so glad I found this site! I was going to order them forget it now. When I read about the shipping fee I know they aren’t even worth trying. I used to work in the shipping industry it does not cost that much to ship something that light!! Thanks again.

      • Mary says:

        I wish I would have read these posts before I ordered them. I am so disappointed and returning them immediately. Of course I lost 26.00 in P&H and must pay to return them again. I will never order anything off the TV again. Nothing but scams out there.

  201. M Gallagher says:

    I received one of these as a gift from my mother. I am a size small to medium shirt. I have the medium and it is suffocatingly small. So, the commercial said to order your shirt size. all of the reviews say to order a size up. They need to work this out. I have a small bust and it is literally squashed in this thing. I won’t be wearing it much. Not recommended.

  202. Tracy Wolfe says:

    Too bad I had not seen this website first! I also ordered the bras according to the suggested sizing. They did not lift, support and even fit my 38 DD breasts. So much much for their false advertisements!!! And I also and stuck paying the $25.98 shipping and handling charges. What a scam! The only thin I can say is …DO NOT BUY THESE BRAS!!!!

  203. Kelly says:

  204. Rita says:

    I ordered my Genie Bras 8-24-11 and they arrived 9-2-11. I tried one on and right away I knew it was a mistake. The band rolled up and the shoulder straps fell down. The bra was uncomfortable. My bras came with pads, which need to be removed before washing. I don’t know how I would remove the pads and then get them back into the bra correctly. I was very disappointed in the product. Not as advertised. To bad I had to lose the non-refundable $25.98 shipping and handling charge. I feel this is a scam.

  205. Julia says:

    Julia,

    I too purchased the genie-bra and was very, very, very, disappointed and misled by the representative taking my order. After asking questions about the size and material she assured me that I would be satisfied with my purchase. Well I was not satisfied with the product and and was not satisfied with the return policy either. I would not recommend this type of bra for anyone who is a full-figure size.

  206. Margaret Forde says:

    I just saw & heard the first time this morning about Genie Bra and the rest of them. I was over the moon and thought great,marvelous I must have them. lucky me I decided to look up the internet and lo and behold saw all the negative reviews. Thanks Ladies you saved me a lot of bother and hassle. No genie or aha for me Thanks to all you Ladies.

    Margaret

    • Leslie says:

      Hi Margaret,

      I just bought the Genie Bra from Walgreen’s and I am truly amazed at how they look and feel. Not as bad as people make it out to be. I am a 38D and am currently wearing a Large genie bra which is also my shirt size. I too was skeptical but it does work and the best thing is there is no shipping or handling costs to worry about. The price was reasonable as well. 2 bras, one black and one nude for $20.00! Hope this helps.

      Leslie

      • Brandy says:

        I have really been looking at getting these and this site has helped alot. Now that I know I can get them at Walgreens and not have to deal with the extreme shipping costs I will get one or two there…try them and if they work great…if not at least the hit is not as bad as some of the women on here have had to deal with.

        Thank you!

  207. Kirstin says:

    I’m glad to read these reviews. The Genie Bra certainly knows how to market, but I honestly felt like when I was watching the beginning with the struggling women that I’ve had those problems but most of them went away after I was professionally fitted and found out my bra size was two sizes larger than what I had originally thought! Even a good bra from Victoria’s Secret is cheaper than the 60 dollars and the insane 30 dollar shipping, and with all the honest (and not surprising) reviews, use that money for some good bras and getting fitted professionally.

  208. Donna says:

    I just purchased a two pack from a local store and I love them! I am a 44d and bought the XL/1x size. They give plenty of support and lift. I plan to purchase more.

  209. Bonnie says:

    My order arrived today. I was so disappointed, but for a change, my disappointment energized me to action. I called and gave Genie Bra my two cents. Got my RMA, but they refused to refund the shipping and processing fees. These bras are a joke. No support, no coverage, flimsy, cheap fabric, rolling bands. Not even as much support as my Barely There bras, which at least are microfiber, not the crap the Genie Bra is made from. I’m returning them. I’m also calling my credit card company in the morning and reporting this company as engaging in false advertising, a total scam. I’m going to ask them to cancel the payment. I think it is called a charge-back, and when a company gets enough of them, their merchant account gets dinged or cancelled. So to others who are extremely upset and dissatisfied, I recommend doing the same, especially after I read here that some who have returned the bras have not received the prompt refund the company promises. I’m 62, and I’ve never fallen for a scam like this before. I’ve never watched an infomercial before, and now, I’ll never watch another.

    Why are we gals so vulnerable when it comes to our bustlines????

    • AmyW says:

      I, too, fell for it. I went ahead and ordered 2-3packs. When I got them, I immediately tried them on and was SO disappointed. They have NO support. They are a VERY light sports bra at most. They do NOT lift OR separate (I am a 38DD). I will be keeping them, only because I know I will be charged a ridiculous amount for return. But, I am also in a unique position that I do wear sports bras to work (I am a police officer) under my Kevlar vest. I will say they are light (we sweat alot in bullet proof vests) and wash pretty well. They are comfortable for this reason only (for me). This would never be a bra I would wear for ANYTHING else. I am so embarrassed that I fell for their advertising too!

    • Cindy says:

      I too am very disappointed with the Genie bra product. Wish I had read the reviews first before making the purchase. My sports bras fit better and look better. And I hate my sports bras because of there poor fit. Well, the Genie bra is a JOKE. I wear a 42DD and let me tell you the Genie bras like you say has not support, no coverage I spill out of it in every direction. I even followed there size chart. GO FIGURE, talk about pissing away money. I my self am 55 and calling my bank.

    • Mandy says:

      I agree with negative comments about these bras.

  210. Jane Lee says:

    Beware of a company whose return address is on a street named Return. Not only did it not fit when sized using my clothing size, but in returning it, I was stuck with $26 in shipping charges plus what it took to return the merchandise. Do yourself a favor and go to a good department store who has a trained fitter to measure and fit you.

  211. Sharon says:

    I purchased 6 bras in 3x, as my normal size is 44 FF. I really knew it probably would not work, and I was right. It is very comfortable, and offers about 25% support. I would wear it to Walmart, but I would hope I didn’t run into anyone I know. I’m going to keep them, just as home bras or walking bras. If you are large, and that is all you want – these are probably fine. Don’t be expecting something you can wear to work or a busy store. Very comfortable, but then so is not wearing a bra at all!

  212. Barb Remmick says:

    Wow- such negative comments about the Genie Bra– I was very hesitant to order thinking–Oh waste of money again for something I will never wear.. I Love it :) I threw out all my other bras and only wear the Genie bra. It is so comfortable, fits perfectly, and wish they would have lacy bras at the top for under tank tops. Took care of any spillage, back looks great with a sweater for shirt. Sorry girls– I love it!

  213. EJ says:

    Wish I had read this before I purchased the Genie Bra. I was uncomfortable, the band – which they claimed didn’t roll up – rolled up immediately. The size I ordered didn’t fit and when I returned all of them, they didn’t credit any of the shipping and handling charges. I’m not sure if I even got the tax back. This product is a waste of money and a waste of my time.

  214. VPH says:

    Thank You, thank you, thank you ladies!!!! I’m watching the Genie Bra commercials now and I am so happy that I read these reviews first!!! It sounds like for the full figured woman, this would have been a waste of money..

  215. joan says:

    What a ripoff. Cheap, didn’t work as promised, cost way out of line for items. Could not get almost $30.00 in shipping not refunded at return. Sorry I did not check this website before purchase. The support claim was the big seller for me and there was None, just a uniboob. Go to SOMA store and get fitted much better bra and they do support.

  216. Sarah says:

    The Genie definitely misrepresents itself, but I don’t think it’s worthless. I am 36 D, saggy from 2 pregnancies, 34 year old skin, and breastfeeding. I don’t think I would wear the bra out of the house much, but I do like it for sleeping and wearing around the house at the end of the day (when you can’t stand to wear your bra anymore but need to wear something). I double up and get okay support for around the house. It isn’t the bra that bothers me so much, but the shipping and handling price. There is no way that it costs more than $5 to ship 3 bras in a plastic bag.

  217. Janice says:

    I just saw the Genie bra infomercial and decided to see if there were any reviews from actual users before I purchased. I’m so glad I did!!! I’m a 38DD and was a little concerned about the level of support that would be received from the fabric. Just as I suspected this is false advertising preying on our need as women to feel comfortable yet look great. What a shame that other women are helping with this scheme. But I guess you gotta pay the bills somehow. I still may try one for weekend wear but off to Walgreens I go. Thanks Ladies for your honesty!!!!

  218. Rosylen says:

    Thank you ladies for your reviews, I have been watching wonderful advertisements regarding genie bras and thought to make an order by phone number that was shown on tv, but I was a little busy so I thought to order online and after typing genie bra I reached to this site where nothing good has been said about genie bra, I’m glad I looked through the internet or else I would have been part of the scam too. Thank you lots, saved my hard earned money, god bless.

  219. Cindy S says:

    Don’t be fooled by all their advertising! I ordered these bras when I broke my wrist since I could not hold a bra to fasten. I had great expectations after watching the infomercial several times. The original delay in shipping due to popular demand notice was emailed to me. I was ready to cancel the order since my wrist would be useable in 8-10 weeks, then I received an email the shipment was sent. Only it was not at the address by Aug 10th when I had to leave. Aug 24th I was home to open the package. The bra is like wearing sheer panty hose. There was no support, the hem rolled and did not stay in place, uniboob was hideous, as was seeing nipples. No where in the commercials did I see nipples. On TV the fabric looks to be similar to a very popular foundation fabric. The Genies look like a pair of nylons that will get a run in it and fall apart. Sure you can get a refund of the $59.99 for the bras, but forget about the $24.99 shipping. A ridiculous cost even when considering the two unmarked plastic mailers inside a large plastic bag mailer. I will make sure I tell at least 10 friends who I hope tell 10 more and 10 more. This product is a total misrepresentation.

  220. Cindy L says:

    The genie bra is the worst bra ever. It is very uncomfortable because there is no style or support to it. It’s worst than a sports bra. I was bulging out all over the place. Wouldn’t go out in public wearing this bra. I like to see the 2 boobs not just one long uniboob. It is not what every woman wants!!

    • Char Lee says:

      Cindy: Thanks for the awesome review. It made me laugh! And empathize . . . The women on the infomercial all look great, but I was worried it was too good to be true.

  221. Kelly says:

    Hello, my name is Kelly and I am employed by Genie Bra. I have been saddened to hear about the complaints some of you have posted. I am also happy to hear about the complements some of you have left. However, anyone who is having a problem please contact me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I am sure that I can help.

  222. Jennifer says:

    This is the worst form of a scam I can ever think of. These bras don’t work and if you have big breast just forget about it. Absolutely no support. Somebody need to report them to the BBB. SHAME ON YOU, SHAME, SHAME, SHAME. I tried to print the reviews. They were 319 pages of unhappy consumers with similar negative reviews. These will be mailed to the BBB. UNBELIEVABLE

    • Tessa says:

      Thank you for posting your comment…. I was about to buy one of their bras and thought “why not see if there’s any reviews first”

  223. Janet says:

    Does not work at all. No support, especially if you have saggy breast. Worst of all getting a refund is next to impossible. Buyers beware. Make sure before you order, you are prepared to loose your money. I am a size 14. Return for a 2X also did not fit. Called customer service for a refund but instead was told the keep the bra that did not fit but they would send the 4X as a replacement. They came; the cups were still too small while the rest of the bra was enormously huge, my breasts just fell through. Called the company back and was told to send them back for a refund. Waited three weeks no refund, called the company who advised me the two 2x Bra that they told me to keep and not to send back now I have to return them in order to get my refund. I had no use for those 2 bras which I had given away over a month ago; now they want me go send them back. So appalling that this company would stoop so low. I hope no other consumer had this same experience. These bras are a poor representative of what are advertised on the TV.

  224. Lucy says:

    If you are Canadian DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY. I purchased bras from this company paid shipping was billed an extra $12.00 shipping charge to Canada and when UPS delivered them I was charged another $25.50 delivery charge. In total I was billed over $60.00 in delivery fees. Next time I will stick with Amazon, delivery is usually free. WHAT A SCAM.

  225. Kelly says:

    Hi, my name is Kelly and I work for Genie Bra. I am so sorry to hear about the problems some of you are having. I can definitely help anyone who needs it. Please contact me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I am here to help.

  226. Mesa_Mom_of_3 says:

    I’ve been wanting to try this bra since I watched the infomercials 3+ months ago, but I knew my neighborhood Walgreens (notice that’s plural – they’re everywhere!) would be stocking them as they stock almost everything “As Seen on TV”. It was a difficult wait as I wanted to try them right away, but from the reviews, this appears to be the most frugal and fastest way to go. No S/H hassles. I bought 2 in Nude & Black for $19.99. I am a 40 D and bought the XL. I love it, except for what happens with most sports bras – it’s not enough support for me :( I really wanted them to work. They’re comfortable and I thought I’d hate the cups they have in them, but I actually love what they do for additional support, although it’s not enough. I want them to work so bad that I’m going to go exchange for the next size down to see if that helps. If that works, I’ll come back here and update my review! But if you are LARGE-BREASTED, don’t expect a miracle from this bra.

    • Kelly says:

      Hi, my name is Kelly and I work for Genie Bra. Size is the most important aspect of purchasing our bras, especially for large breasted woman. The support issues are most likely being caused by the bra being the incorrect size. If you need additional assistance trying to figure out your correct size, I can help.

      Email me at customerservice@genirebra.com. I’m here to help.

      • Maura Cavaleri says:

        Hey Kelly,

        So every woman here who had a bad experience simply ordered the wrong size? How does that even begin to address the other complaints, like overcharging on shipping, problems getting refunds or the shoddy material that is used?

        According to the show, ordering the correct size is EASY! So how could all these complaints be because they have the wrong size?

        By the by, my girlfriend bought one over and the material is so thin, there is NO way it can support my DD’s with any kind of lift.

        So while it’s great that you get paid to try to salvage complaints on websites and review sites, the fact is this is a lousy overpriced product with poor customer service and problems with refunds.

      • Deaun says:

        Kelly,

        Something I learned a very long time ago I will share with you: just as an employee reflects upon the company, the company reflects upon the employee. My advise to you is to find another company–save yourself.

        Sincerely,

        Deaun

    • Karen Naylor says:

      Mesa Mom of 3,

      Please don’t try the next size down, unless you want your boobs to be squished and pouring out over the top of the bra.

  227. lilly says:

    Ordered two sets, got them in two weeks. They were padded, I called for RMA and said I wanted entire amt refunded, he replied shipping and handling are not refundable. I said so it is a SCAM…I sent product back and then called them. I did get S/H refunded but spent $14.00 return. They sent me PADDED which I did not order then tried to tell me the PADDED was a free upgrade…what a big joke…..stay away from this company.

    • Kelly says:

      Dear Lilly,

      Hi, my name is Kelly and I work for Genie Bra Customer Service. I am so sorry to hear that you are having a problem with the bras. We do have padded and non-padded bras and the padded bras are an upgrade. However, the pads are removable. I can defiantly help you get the product you want. Please contact me at customerservice@geniebra.com. I’m here to help you.

      Sincerely,
      Kelly

  228. NanC says:

    In April 2011, I placed a phone order for the Genie Bra. I was offered the special of (6) for $39.99 plus s/h, for a total of $59.97. I was assured it would ship out in 2 to 3 weeks. I was also assured that you need only order the same size as your shirt size. Being large busted, I even ordered one size larger. Fast-forward to June 30, 2011, when I finally got someone on the phone at Genie Bra’s non-toll free number, who told me he could not cancel orders in progress, he could not tell me where my order was IN the process, but that it should ship in 2 to 3 weeks.

    I asked whether I could get any kind of price break due to the extremely long time I was taking to fill my order and he said call back once it had arrived. In less than a week, I received a post card saying they would auto-cancel the order if it didn’t ship within 30 days. Seven weeks after that (keeping count here, 7 weeks is MORE than 30 days!) I get an email stating my order had shipped and my credit card billed for an item I no longer wanted and had not expected to receive.

    Today, the bras arrived. No, they don’t fit. No, they don’t look like any kind of quality garment, yes they are made in China, and no–Genie Bra says they will not refund my s/h fees. They did offer me a credit of $12 if I kept the bras (plus the orig cost of the bras, of course)…when I refused that one and requested a Return Authorization # they offered me $25 to keep them instead of returning.

    Finally, I was told what my RA# would be, but still no budging on refunding my shipping fees. Obviously, I’ll be paying s/h 2x since I have to pay to ship them back. I’ve also called my Master card company and have had them file a complaint and investigation into the purchase since they’d told me they would be canceling it if they couldn’t ship in 30 days.

    My advice to anyone looking at the Genie Bra or any of the clones like it: skip them! Won’t be worth the money at any price.

  229. Diane says:

    I ordered the buy three get three free on August 6th and was billed $85.97 which has been charged to my card. Still have not received! I called customer service today 8/23 and was told the they shipped on 8/17 with the postal service and to expect them by 8/30. What the heck kind of service is that??!! Sure as hell won’t order any more!!!

    Ridiculous!! Coming from Connecticut I was told.

  230. Heidi says:

    I truly thought I would be returning the 6 Genie Bras I just ordered and paid for, along with writing a scathing review, and calls to the BBB. I will do none of that….I just received them in the mail….(about 2 weeks for them to arrive), and tried one on immediately. I have to say I LOVE IT! I am thrilled at the comfort, the no hooks, no back fat and the great looking chest I now have. How would’ve thought? I will probably use these bras instead of all the others I own. Bras are very subjective items of clothing, but for me, I think I’ve found the comfort and look I was searching for, and would gladly pay the price for this.

  231. Shella says:

    OK guys. Here’s a couple tips. I wear a 42 C/D (depending on bra). I bought an XL & I love it. Big tip though is when adjusting, grasp where the straps attach to the boobie part in the front, reach in & lift your boobie & then drop it so it’s all the way in, then re-grasp both the strap fronts & pull up as much as possible & then pull the back down from the bottom of the back. Many people have droopy looking boobies ‘cos of the straps being to loose or not placed correctly.

    Now, there are actually 3 out there. Ahh & Genie are the same. Magic Gravity is the same except it has wider comfort straps. Also, the Magic Gravity Bra is only $70 for 6 including S&H. What I would suggest tho is go to Walgreens. They have the Ahh bra – one in a pack for $19.99. While more expensive per bra, this allows you to try it. Walgreens also has a return policy & they are almost on every flippin’ corner.

    Another idea for these is that if u really prefer a custom or other bra, but also want to wear tanks with a bra & not look trashy ‘cos your strap shows, wear your preferred bra & then put this over it. That way your wearing the bra u prefer, but it doesn’t show. Yes the Ahh (or whichever brand) shows, but it just looks like you’ve layered tanks.

    I don’t work for any of these bra companies or Walgreens. I’m just a consumer trying to get a quality product for a fair price. I have major back & shoulder problems & many other health issues. I find these bras comfy & functional, but that’s my opinion.

  232. Amelia says:

    From the looks of all the reviews I would have to say that the bra supports smaller breasted ladies, a hell of a lot better that bigger breasted, I would say don’t waist your money and instead try to get a custom bra, as I had to do. I am a 44. I and trust me its a pain in the butt to find decent support.

  233. Shelia says:

    MONTHS ago I ordered the Genie Bra. Notice I said MONTHS ago! I still have not received the product, however my credit card was billed. I have tried 5 times to contact the customer service department. I get NO response! This is a huge rip off! Think twice before you order. As to the quality of the product and how it wears…supports…etc. I HAVE NO IDEA, since I never received them!

    • Vickye says:

      I cringe everytime I see where someone posts that they ordered these bras and have yet to see them or having problems with the billing because where I live ….the Ahh bras and the Genie Bras are at my local Walgreens and Walmarts.

    • angeeee says:

      Contact your credit card company, and tell them! they will refund your money, and will go after the company!

  234. Kari says:

    I’ve just gotta ask, has anyone contacted the BBB or the FTC? With the number of complaints I think that’s enough grounds to file a report with both organizations.

  235. Roz says:

    The Genie Bra and the Ahh bra are exactly the same product. I have both and have compared them side by side. I happen to like the bra. I am 5’3, weigh 120 lbs and wear a 38D. I have been ordering the bra in a size M because I am very broad through the rib cage. I am not young so the girls no longer stand at attention. The support is not great but they get me through the day. I wear a regular bra when the occasion calls for it.

    NOW, THE MEAT OF THIS COMMENT. My first order was from Aah bra. No hitches everything was fine. My second order was from Miracle Bra. WHAT A RIP OFF. THESE PEOPLE ARE THIEVES. First off the product came packaged as Genie Bras, Okay, I can live with that. However, the 2 for 1 sale is not a sale. It’s a come on. The bras were $59.95 for three. the second “free bra set”” cost $29.88 for shipping. That’s a total of 85.97. I don’t care how big my breasts are, a battleship could be sent for less. PLUS, the web site is purposely set up to confuse you. For instance, at check out it says your order did not go through making you think that you have to re-order. I repeat, MIRACLE/GENIE BRA ARE THIEVES.

    I will continue to order the “Ahh” bra from HSN where I paid $39.90 for four bras and paid 5.95 for shipping.

    Based on other reviews I may try CVS an BB & Beyond.

    Remember DON’T order from Miracle/Genie.

    • Connie says:

      I agree with you. I couldn’t understand the huge price you had to pay for postage for the additional bras. I order stuff all the time from Amazon and other places that is a lot heavier and I have never had to pay that much for postage.

  236. lucy says:

    I have it,and it’s comfortable.but doesn’t lift like they say.and don’t have any support. I will not return it,because it’s going to take long as I received.

    It took about 2 month to delivery that is BAD,BAD. I would not buy again.

    • Connie says:

      Mine also rolls under the breast. I know it says for all sizes and that the band under the breast doesn’t roll, but, beware, if you have a stomach that juts out under your breast, it causes the bra to roll under the breast and you spend most of your time pulling it down, especially after you sit down.

  237. tracy says:

    Worst product ever. Can’t believe I fell for this scam! all the negative reviews are true I am sure. What a ordeal. I feel violated for believing in this scam. Please do not get fooled. This company should be shut down. Shame on them!

    • Ann says:

      Thanks for your post. I just saw the ad on TV for the Genie Bra and was about to place an order when I decided to do a ‘review’ of this product. From all the negative feedback it would appear all you gals saved me and possibly many others from making a big mistake. Caveat emptor!

  238. Annette says:

    CVS got them in which was great because I could buy two for 19.99 rather than 6 for 59.99. Unfortunately they didn’t have X-Large so I settled for Large. OK, not my size but I’m in the process of losing weight (fingers crossed:) so I let that influence my decision to try the LARGE. But whether it was my size or not, my main complaint: I bounced. I’m a D so bouncing is not an option. Neither its it flattering. I guess that’s why they have the ladies put on 2 bras at a time on the infomercial. I’m a gal from the ’60s and I hate wearing even one bra. heh. Why on earth would anyone want to wear TWO bras at a time? Because one is not enough to give the larger breasted gal support. Too bad. I was really jazzed to get this. I HATE infomercials. They are wizards at getting us all worked up, aren’t they.

  239. Pam says:

    What a mistake I made by thinking that these bras would work for me!! I am so disappointed. The size was all wrong. I did what they said and ordered my T shirt size. Well, when I got them, I couldn’t even begin to get them on. I sent them back. I will not reorder and wait another 8 weeks ….yes, 8 weeks for bras when I can go to the local Walmart and get sports bras right away.

    These are NOT for big busted women. Don’t do it!!

  240. Deb says:

    I was going to order the buy 3 and get 3 free deal but am so glad I checked out this site. Sounds like it is just a huge scam like a lot of things you order from those infomercials. No Genie Bra rip off for me.

    I thought I would mention another scam I just recently saw again on TV. I can’t remember the name of the product at the moment but it is a weight-loss product that you sprinkle in powder form on top of your food. Supposed to help you lose weight, but right after I ordered, I looked it up on “Snopes” and they said it was a total scam.

    I tried to cancel the order but they said it was too late — the same day I had ordered it. When the package arrived I took it – unopened – to the post office and paid $32 to return it. So, I learned my lesson. Research BEFORE you buy. Don’t just trust what they say.

    • Pam says:

      Amen, Deb! The Genie bra folks got me! I am so mad!!

    • Sixrealms says:

      You can simply refuse a package delivered by USPS. Simply write “REFUSED” on it and give it back to the postman or take it to the post office and refute it on your credit card. No $ required.

  241. Pearl says:

    Please also note that if you live in Canada you’ll also have to pay duty!! I already paid over $25 for shipping and handling, and then I was charged an additional $32 for duty when the product was delivered.

    Not such a great deal after all.

    • holly says:

      I ordered these bras and did not pay duty and I live in Canada. I called ordered of the Canadian website and only paid HST (sales tax in Ontario). I have to say I really like my bras…I probably could have done with a larger size but I plan on losing weight so they are fine.

  242. sue says:

    Trying to get a refund after 12 weeks of waiting, the product is pathetic, the service is less than pathetic…calling once a week…will keep going till I get my money back.

  243. Jan Carr says:

    OUCH – wish I had read all these reviews before making a purchase. These bras are less than worthless. NO support, NO lift. The under-band DOES roll and the straps DO NOT lie flat. The padding in the cups migrates at will. The S&H charges are ridiculous for a package that weighs no more than a pound. The customer service number is a joke. It is NOT a toll- free call. There was so much yelling and background noise I could not hear the service person. There was no way they were going to let me speak with a supervisor. AND then you have to pay to send it back!!

    I wonder who looks at these comments.

      • Kate says:

        Thank you for these comments! I was just going to order these bras and after reading the reviews I changed my mind. When will I ever learn that infomercials are SCAMS?!!! The products never work as they are advertised to work. I have a cabinet full of Oxyclean to prove that. Useless.

        • Charlene says:

          Thanks for the true comments! I guess Genie’s belong in a bottle not on breasts.

        • Helen mcschooler says:

          Kath, I love Oxyclean. Never do a load of laundry without it. My whites are always as if they were new. Same with the colors. I am too lazy to pre-treat stains, but they always come out. Try again. It may take a few washings if your things are a little drab.

      Thank you so much!

    • Sue M says:

      Thank you!! I was really considering purchasing, but your comments helped me not get ripped off. I didn’t want to buy 3 bras anyway, much less 6! I would have bought 2, probably, if I hadn’t looked it up and found your feedback.

      Thanks again!

    • Raychl says:

      I am watching the infomercial right now and reached for my phone to buy these. But I hung up and googled reviews to see what others said about it. Thank god I did. Thanks for saving my money and lots of frustration.

  244. SUZ says:

    This is a major rip off. I wear a size 36D and this genie bra gives no support what so ever. The 6 for the price of 3 is a laugh. They also charge you double shipping. $25.98 is outrageous. I got sucked into this one and the sales person offered me $12.95 to keep the bras. Told him I wanted my $59.99 refunded. Let’s see how long that takes.

    • Laura Rasmussen says:

      So glad I look at the reviews on Genie Bra. I was interested until I’ve read all the negative reviews. I am not small busted and need something with plenty of support. these are definitely not a bargain

  245. A says:

    I purchased my Genie bras from Bed Bath and Beyond. I love them; they are very comfortable and look great under T-shirts (you must use the pads to get the desired lift, shape, support, and separation). However, the sizing is a bit off; if you feel “squeezed”, just go a size larger until you get the correct fit.

  246. Jennifer says:

    Genie bra is a waste of money. I paid $26 in shipping and they are not a good product. Keep in mind, if you want to exchange for a different size, they don’t’ charge you for return shipping. if you want to return the item altogether, you have to pay for return shipping as well. RIP OFF!! Bed Bath and Beyond sells these now in their stores. DON’T BUY FROM GENIEBRA.COM. They will rip you off.

  247. anne says:

    THANK YOU ALL for posting! I went to order and thought, Well, I should check reviews online first.

    DAG I was so hoping the Genie bra would be a comfortable and uplifting bra. Bummer. Not ordering now!

    Anybody find anything else that follows this idea (comfortable, uplifting even for large sizes) online or at the retail store? I’d love another option.

    Like someone else said, everyday I come home at 6 PM and rip off my bra, haha

    Thanks all again for posting!

    I just saw the commercial on TV and thought this might be too good to be good. After reading all these comments, I can see it was too good. Without offending anyone, please do as I now do (learned the hard way), check out the comments on the internet and most definitely check out any company with the Better Business Bureau. You can also file a complaint with them.

    In some states the FBI has a special department for internet scams (California does) and once you report them, you will receive a case file number. Also, I thought there was a law enacted last year that when you call a company with foreign reps, that you can request to speak to a United States rep and/or supervisor. You can also let any company you know that you will be contacting your and the company’s State Attorney General’s Office.

    I write this with hard knocks learning!! These are the methods I had to take for several problems I had.
    Thank you all for your candor in this blog as I will now seek an alternative to this bra!!

    Just to let all buyers of the Genie Bra know their on- line sale for Buy 3 get 3 free is a SHAM! You start with $59.99, thinking you are getting 3 Bras and then you get 3 free. That’s not the way they see it. On the web site it states: Buy 3, get 3 Free with postage & handling. I paid my $59.99, plus 12.99 shipping. There is a place on the site that says: 3 extra bras just pay postage & handling, you mark yes or no. So my total was $89.99. Should have received 9 total bras, the way the web site reads. I received 6 total. So bottom line: You pay $25.99 to get 6 bra to you. Bras are way thin, no way worth $25.00 worth of shipping. When talking to The Genie Bra people, their answer is: You just didn’t read it right. Believe I can read Buy 3 get 3 Free. Not a good word for this Company.

    I was duped. What a colossal waste of money. These bras are more uncomfortable than underwires. No support, very poor fit, and cheap material. PLEASE do not wast your money. If it were not for the inconvenience, I would send them back, but then I would probably be without my money as well. I guess I just don’t’ trust these folks. I was told the size I ordered was on backorder. I waited for a few weeks and did not hear anything, so I called. I was told “that size is on backorder”. When I said I felt I had waited long enough, she said “I can send these out tomorrow and expedite the shipping”. That backorder arrived pretty fast, didn’t it? WTH??

    • Allyson Miller says:

      So glad I read this was so close to ordering the bra really need new ones so I thought what the heck. Well thank goodness for reviews!! Looks like I saved myself a bundle

  251. barb says:

    Received the bras quite quickly in the mail(only 2 weeks), but was very disappointed after wearing them. I am a 38C, ordered Large. As others have stated, it was like wearing pantyhose around your breasts. No support whatsoever. The band that they claim does not roll is in a constant state of being rolled, pinching, and uncomfortable. They are going back-I wouldn’t even consider them comfortable enough to wear in the evening or bed.

    • Kathy says:

      I have a order in since 7/11/11. It is now 8/16/11 and I have not received anything yet. I’m going to cancel this and I’m glad after reading the comments.

      Thank you

      • Janie says:

        I ordered mine on 7/11/11 as well – when I had not received them by 8/19/11, I called and cancelled. They tried to talk me into getting them anyhow and offered to refund the outrageous shipping and handling after I got them. I told them NO – just cancel. They did. I saw them at Walgreen’s: 3 for $19.95. However, after reading these reviews I am just going to forget it. Thanks everyone! Sorry you were duped, but glad you reported it.

      • Joyce says:

        I placed my order the 24th of June and am still waiting! Will give them until this Friday.

  252. lisa says:

    well, as someone who actually likes to go bra free most of the time when I’m not at work, I didn’t find these to be the miracle bra they advertised, but they are kind of a good interim pseudo bra for casual wear. I originally went with shirt size (Med) but definitely too tight.

    I got next size up and didn’t pay for inserts (cost a lot extra) but found I could pop out inserts from smaller ones and pop inside the cups of the “Large” size (yes, I ordered a second set of six)… and they’ll stay in place… so when “no bra at all” doesn’t work (in a tank top or whatever shopping on a weekend, Genie bra is more comfortable that that underwire thing I wear to work. So it’s a mixed bag.

    I wouldn’t be likely to order more of them tho. The smoother “look” appears to mostly be the snug aspect of the somewhat uni-bra plus bump from the pad.

  253. Ann says:

    Came online to order a genie bra, but came across some other sites too, including this one, so was interested to read others’ reviews. So glad I did! The result is I won’t be buying the genie bra. I need a lot more support than it seems to be offering.

  254. Sheilah says:

    PLEASE READ MY REVIEW –It is the TRUTH!

    This is NOT your answer to a great bra—believe me. I am a 36 C natural (and I bought XS to make sure I had the best fit) and this has NO support and is worse than a good sports bra. DO NOT BUY THIS BRA.
    There are over 7000 bad reviews (just that I have found) on this bra that people like you and I actually took the time to search for.

    *** Just so you know. 90% of the people on here that say the bra is great are PAID Bloggers who are hired to write good reviews. That is a Known Fact and the reality of many commentaries on the net. So Don’t believe them! Save your money and keep searching for a great Bra, because Genie Bra isn’t it.

    FYI: Genie Bra makes their income on the Shipping & Handling charges—not the product. The product itself is no more supportive than a low line sports bra. This is a bad quality product. Period. They count on people not returning the bra because of the hassle of shipping it back at your own cost minus the shipping charges (which is $ 20.00) and people can’t get a confirmation # quickly, so the customers just eat the cost and NEVER return or even wear the bra.

    This is the truth. All the customer service agents do ALL day is take back orders AND cut deals on the return to prevent the customer from shipping the product back and that is ONLY if you are pushy.—like me!

    I just now cut a deal with a supervisor who finally said the best he could do was take $25.00 off my order and let me keep the bras as I won’t get back my shipping costs and I’ll have to spend at least $10.00 to ship it back myself. I did the math and that is about $ $15.00 to keep the bras which I may where to bed—that’s it.

    I paid $59.99 for my total. I searched out the best deal on the net I could find, so I wasn’t as ripped off as those who spent $89.99.

    This company should actually be reported to the proper institution for running a scam. Because ALL they do is take RETURNS and cut deals on these Bras! You’ve got to give it to them; it’s a great way to make money. They make it in China and make a minimum of $20-50.00 on each piece of garbage they sell, not to mention the slave labor is not getting paid properly for their output. ) and nobody speaks up that the product is so horrible. It’s false advertising.

    Hope this is helpful.

    • Lynn says:

      I purchased these for my sister according to their sizing chart and the bras weren’t even close to her size. The quality was horrible and they had no support. I returned them and had to follow-up with them almost a week after my FedEx air bill showed them as received by Genie bra, my credit card was still not credited. When I spoke to a sales rep., they said my account would be credited in 2-5 business days from the day I called, which meant another week before the would credit my account. Two weeks now and they still have not credited my account. I wouldn’t deal with this company ever again.

    • Kathryn says:

      So, Sheilah, why didn’t you report them to the BBB? Your made the purchase and received the product. Instead of spending all that time typing this post you could have made the report!

  255. Jane says:

    I am so glad to read the comments that don’t like the genie bra. I feel the same way. I couldn’t wait to get these bras and omg I was so disappointed. I went by my top size so ordered medium…like the one reviewer said it was like putting on panty hose…so tight and so cheaply made. Plus they were padded…didn’t hear anything telling me they were padded. Needless to say….sent them back…no more infomercials..very rarely do you get what you think you are going to get..what a racket!!

  256. Darlene Kreis says:

    The first thing I would advise people to do, is ORDER up two sizes!!! I am a 34 DD, and wear a MD size in shirts. My rib cage area is very small, with no excess meat or flab. The measurement chart reflects a M as the proper size…. No way! I had to go back to Bed Bath & Beyond, and exchange it for a XL/1X. No kidding!!!! Not to big of a deal, since it is close by and I got a two pack, beige and black for $19.95. Plus I was able to use a 20% off coupon. My reason for the purchase was to have something comfy under my PJ’s. The girls don’t really droop, but I would like to keep them that way! I wear Bally Sports Bras for exercise, and regular bras under shirts. I do feel like I could wear the Genie under some styles, but I will probably just use it for additional sleeping comfort and support.

  257. elaine handley says:

    I am in Australia when I fill all the details to get the genie bra, why is there no list for Australia,when its on our ads forever? how BAD is that? where does this message go?

    sorry I bothered

  258. Cynth says:

    LOVE this Genie Bra. I was given one of the 6 from a friend and fell in love with its comfort the second I put it on. Now I am going to order my own. Was glad to have had the one to try first though because I had been skeptical. No more though, I am now a firm believer!

  259. Amy Hall says:

    The Customer Service center reps tell you whatever you want to hear to get the sale…All lies of course including when they say they’ll let you speak with a manager. My bras were promised in 10 days. When I called to find out where they were they said oops we didn’t ship them. They sure charged my card tho. Bottom line…wait til you can buy them at Wal-Mart. I STRONGLY ADVISE YOU NOT TO DO BUSINESS WITH THEM BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM…THEY WILL NOT LIVE UP TO WHAT THEY SAY THEY WILL DO TO MAKE IT RIGHT.

  260. Debbie says:

    I want to thank everyone for the time they took to post a review. This was so helpful to us. My husband and I seen the ad on TV and seriously consider making the purchase. I am so glad we decided to read the reviews before making that decision. You all saved us a lot of money and frustration. Again we thank you.

  261. Rachel Brooks says:

    I thought these would be the answer, but they’re going BACK. I was shocked to find they were padded (I must have missed something in ordering) and who wants to hug someone with hard rocks for breasts? Without the pads what little I have left is smooshed almost flat and on top of that (and the fact nipples show) is the band at the bottom that rolled up into a tight wad of discomfort. I should know by now that was seems too good to be true IS too good to be true. Save your money ladies. Oh yes, to get the pads OUT, there’s just a little slit to pull them through. I gave up trying to put them back in to ship them back.

  262. jan murphy says:

    Got my genie bras today. I ordered L padded. I love ,love,love them! Genie bra makes my boobs want to grant wishes!!

  263. e garrison says:

    The worst bra ever. Total trash,too small and cheaply made. What makes this bra even worse is the customer service—it doesn’t exist.Save your money,don’t give it to this company.You get scammed by the product and customer service—–BEWARE.

  264. Diana says:

    FYI: Do not sit and wait on hold for customer service to return your order. Your Invoice Number = Return Authorization number. That is what I was told when I called. No, you will not get the shipping and handling charges returned which sucks.

  265. Vicki says:

    Don’t believe a word they say. If you are over 30 and have LOST the muscle tone in your breasts you will end up with a uni-breast! It still shows the back fat and under arm fat, and I am NOT fat. I am 5’4″ and weigh 125 lbs. It squishes everything out. They WILL NOT send a return label so you can send them back. That is on YOU. Call your credit card company and stop the payment. They are liars!!

  266. Shanon says:

    Thank you all for the feedback. I want to try them so I think I’ll stop by Walgreen’s or CVS instead of ordering them through their website. That way I won’t mind so much if they do suck.

    Thanks!!!

  267. Joyce Cao says:

    OMG! I ordered these bras and NOT until it ACCEPTS your order does it give you the breakdown on the cost involved. The shipping and handling alone was $54.96! TOTAL RIP OFF.. believe me, as soon as they hit my mailbox they will be going back for just that simple screw me tactic.

    • Shirley Mallus says:

      What a story!!! Not true. Anything you order on line, you pay for. Total shipping is not $54.

      • Debbi says:

        No, it’s $26, so maybe she ordered 2 sets = $52 still a ridiculous amount of money for shipping! That’s where online shopping screws ya!

  268. Janet says:

    I recently purchased the Genie bra (three you buy, three you get free with additional shipping and handling). My order arrived today. Imagine paying $26 shipping and handling for a package that weighs approximately 11 ounces!

    The shipping price meant nothing to me, though, as I hurriedly put on one of my new Genie bras. I normally wear a 38DDD. This experience was like trying to put a pair of hose on my chest. It didn’t support me AT ALL. It actually looked like I wasn’t wearing a bra.

    I don’t normally get sucked into buying things advertised on TV, and this was learning experience. Never again!

    • Lucy says:

      Janet, I had a sleepless night and watched one of their infomercials. I have to say, none of the ladies they paraded out with their “new” looks looked well-supported. They looked squished and yet floppy and no more supported than if they were wearing cheap, flimsy bras. I have found, as a woman with a 34F bra size (try finding THAT size in just any store) that I have to go to a bra-fitter at a bra store in order to get a good, supportive, flattering bra. I go to Intimacy in NYC when I visit and I go to Bare Necessities online when I cannot get there. You will spend more, but a good bra is worth sacrificing other things, IMO.

  269. Maryam says:

    I purchased them at Walgreens it comes 2 bras a beige and a black one for just $19.99 and didn’t have to worry about shipping, I really liked them honestly I don’t know how people say they roll up it doesn’t happen to me..

    However on the website they are extremely expensive and shipping is crazy , so if you can try to find them at Walgreens or CVS pharmacy..

    • max says:

      I have purchase a similar bra in PEACOCKS shop in England 2 bras for £5.00. They are comfortable and helpful when I get breast pain during my period. I would like to try the Ahh or genie bra and find it odd that NONE can be found in eBay either used or brand new in packaging. If I got 3 through the post and couldn’t be bothered returning them, I would eBay them. How comes this is not the case? There is Genie Bra/Ahh Bra and Comfortease Bra on every night on the shopping channels and I can’t understand why they aren’t being flogged by individuals cheaply on eBay.

    • Loretta says:

      Wish I had known I could have bought them at Walgreens for less money. I ordered 3 weeks ago and still have not received my order. The shipping charge was ridiculous. I’ll never order anything again that rips me off like the Genie Bra Company does. The saying “Buyer Beware” certainly applies here.

  270. Cathy says:

    I bought two sets of 2x (fit size 24-26 according to Global shop dot com dot au). I’m a 24, should be great. When they came, the one I tried on, stitching broke, overspill everywhere and way too tight around the midriff. Cant send them back, one is damaged so I used them for research. Sent one to my mum 18D, they fit around her body, but heaps of overspill, and uniboob look after it was on a while. So now I’m looking for a thin friend who won’t freak at wearing a 2X, to try it out. I did find Ahh bra in 4X fits much better and has more in the cup area. Also tried Beauty Bra from the UK, sizing in similar to Genie Bra but with a bit more cup area, but too tight/small for me, even in 3X, so I’ve sent them back to the UK (from Australia) and waiting for a refund.

  271. Lupatrian says:

    I have to thank everyone who took the time to post a review. I had already ordered via the infomercial. After I read what was here (which I should have done BEFORE ordering), I called to cancel my order. I asked for/got a confirmation number; and called my credit card co. to make sure no charges had been put through. Genie Bra had done an immediate *approval* through the credit card company, but nothing had been billed through yet. So here’s hoping. I agree with people who think this co. is happy making their money on handling charges – and there’s also a high percentage of customers who just don’t return items. I wonder how many complaints have to be registered before this hinky co. gets shut down?

  272. Audrey says:

    Today is Sat., August 6, 2011. I ordered these bras on June 20, 2011 and still haven’t received them.

    When they do come, I will refuse the UPS delivery. After reading all these comments, I do not want any part of the Genie Bra — not for me! Now I will be contacting the credit card company for a refund. I realize that fighting with Genie Bra will be a real nuisance and frustration.

    Ladies, just contact your credit card and have the charge cancelled.

  273. Linda says:

    I’m a 34DD — I absolutely LOVE these bras. They are the most comfortable ones I have ever worn. There ad said 4 to 6 weeks for delivery. I got mine in exactly 4 weeks. I have tried bras of all sorts, Victoria Secret, Playtex, Specialty, etc. These are the BEST.

    • Amelia says:

      Its Funny that you mentioned that you tried Victoria Secret, I happen to work at one of their locations and they don’t offer bras in that size.

  274. Patty says:

    I am a 38DD. I bought the pack of 6 and was very disappointed at first–they did not seem to support at all. Then it dawned on me that THERE ARE NO STRAP ADJUSTERS. I have a freakishly short torso and so I folded all the straps over and sewed them so that they are all about 2-inches shorter.

    I have worn nothing else since. the bottom band DOES roll up, but it’s not a deal breaker. As far as price goes, the price I got—with shipping—works out to be about $15 each–which is fine. I did have to spend about an hour sewing all the straps though–annoying, but I have always had the worst time with my bras.

    I’m just glad to have 6 bras that I don’t feel like ripping off my body, screaming, at 5 PM.

  275. Robert says:

    Whooooa… glad I’m not a chic and have to worry about bra stuff! I was going to buy this for my wife…but now…I think not (thanks for the information).

    All these negative posts…kinda like a new bra burning revolution!

  276. anita canfield says:

    I purchased theses bras, along with my sister in law, they fit her perfectly, but I needed a size bigger, I wear a lg shirt, and brought the lg XL genie bras. Why don’t they tell you that you need to buy one size bigger than what you wear!! its so stupid, I couldn’t return them, because of going in with my sister in law. So it doesn’t seem fair!! my boobs hung out all over the place, when I had a t shirt on!!

    • Kaye says:

      What size bra do you wear? I am thinking about ordering and the chart says 1X but I wear a B cup, Thanks for any help!

  277. Jeannette says:

    My mom bought these bra’s and did not like them at all because they roll up. She told me to try them on and I had the same problem we absolutely DO NOT LIKE EM!!!

  278. Rikki Holland says:

    Kay, so even while watching the infomercial, I was literally yelling at the screen about all the flaws in the product they weren’t seeing, seeing these reviews only strengthening my opinion.

    Flaws I saw:
    1. HUGE PROBLEM, you cant wear them with ANY tank top or strapless. so it does not replace a ‘drawer full of bras’.
    2. The before pictures they show ALL have photos of women wearing bras either too big or way too small, that’s not the bras fault, honey.
    3. They use fancy words to make the product sound scientific, but don’t explain the bullshit words. Interwoven? that’s not a big deal..

    Flaws you saw:
    1. Shipping took a long time, and return policy was unclear, with bad customer service, costing you money.
    2. They don’t fit correctly, bulge, and sizes are confusing.
    3. Its hard to wash, with confusing pads, so NOT worth such bad support.

    • Ashley says:

      First of all, seems like you have not tried out the bras, so your review cannot be taken seriously, you have not experienced the Genie Bra. A REVIEW is when you have tried out the product. BTW, there is no need to be sarcastic. The Genie Bra is not a miracle worker, it will not work out for everyone. It does not always work, but some women LOVE the bras.

  279. Sue says:

    I purchased the Genie Bra package of 6. I received the pad inserts with them because I detest that “peek-a-boo” look. I have been very satisfied with them. They are very comfortable, do not hike up, straps don’t fall…very pleased. Would like to see them a little sexier in the design.

  280. Louisa says:

    I also purchased the genie bras and they do not fit as the infomercial states. They are uncomfortable, there is underarm spillage. the band rolls up, The ones with out the padding does not have any support. It is strictly a rip off. They are no more than a sports bra which can be purchased at most stores a lot cheaper.

  281. Lindsey rummel says:

    I have ordered the Genie bras about 2 weeks ago n have not received them or got any e-mail on a confirmation or anything can’t seem to find a phone number to contact anyone but they sure have taken my $70 dollars

    • Deb says:

      here is a number they sent a post card so I would order them 1800-801-5063 I was going to order but after reading everything I will go to Kohls or JCPennys or Madian Form outlet before I order I like to try on make sure the support is there. good luck you can always contact your credit card or PayPal tell them your not happy.. get your money back

    • Dawnita C says:

      I have two numbers for Genie Bra – the order number 1-800-889-9201 from the infomercial and the Customer service number 1-973-287-5154.

      I ordered 9 bra’s 6 regular w/pads and 3 w/lace on July 3, 2011 and they came within a few weeks. I spoke with a gal on the initial order and explained to her that I wear a 22/24 top but my bra size is a 48 G/H depending on the style and make. She recommended that I order a 2X, when it came I tried one on and it was way too small for my breast size and tight around the band. I called customer service and this time I got to speak to a guy, hard to understand (obviously English is not his native language) and tried to explain the issue with the cup size being WAY TOO small, however he said the 3X was much bigger. Okay I sent the 2X’s back and they sent me the 3X’s but this time all 9 are the regular w/pads no lace ones. I received them today, again I tried one on and the band size is good, but the cup is still WAY TOO small.

      Called customer service again, another guy, same language issue, I explained I wanted to return the order for a refund, I don’t think the cup size will be big enough. This man claims that the 4X is 4″ larger than the 3X and I can’t get an exchange or a refund until the 2X which I shipped back over two weeks ago is received. If you can find them at CVS or Walgreen’s DO IT! This is too costly and time consuming to deal with most likely they are not going to fit and then I’m going to be out shipping and handling plus who knows how much, since they may claim they never received the 1 return.

  282. Jeanette says:

    My mother who is very large busted ordered these bras. They of course didn’t fit her so she told her daughters to take them. The size she ordered was XL. Much too small for her. I take a size 6 shirt. I put the bras on with the pads and I have loved them. No rolls, comfortable, wash fine. Don’t mind taking the pads in and out. I plan to order 6 more in my size.

  283. ML says:

    I don’t know why I didn’t think of searching for reviews first. I was so convinced at the infomercial, although skeptical since I’m only a 32A in size.

    JUST placed my order and then had the thought to look up reviews. I really really wish I saw all these reviews first. The site doesn’t even have an online way to communicate with them, to cancel my order. I’d have to call long distance to do it! So disheartened :(

  284. Ljrobb says:

    CVS has the Genie Bra in their stores this week for $19.99. Buy it there to try it. Much cheaper than paying the $85 from the website of Genie Bra.

  285. Genie Fitz says:

    Your comments stopped me. I had gone to the Genie Bra site and was confused by the size charts. I am a 42DDD, but they don’t list 42. I don’t generally wear one size in blouses, women’s sizing seems to vary with every product. Does the bust size they list under the shirt sizes refer to band size or total bust size (band+cup)? I think that may be one reason so many don’t fit right. I was concerned about the apparent lack of support for DDDs, and even more so that the sizing was so vague. Something that would fit a 40C frame would probably feel very constricting. Even on the ad the largest size breasts seemed to be sagging and not flattering. There are better bras for large sizes.

  286. Leta says:

    Just watched the infomercial on TV. First , there is no band that does not move or roll, period. Figured if they are lying about that, that probably are lying about the rest. I would not need 12 bras if they were as good as they said they were, right? If they always keep their shape, you would never need 12 all at once. Figured there was a scam of some sort here so, got to thinking each bra probably costs them around $2 to make if that. So, you are paying $60 for something that cost them around $24. Now, they can’t offer 1 for $2 can they without it being too “cheap”. So, they offer you (what you think is) a great “deal” at $59.99 for 12. Look at the numbers and you see something is “fishy”.

  287. Kim says:

    I ordered about 3 weeks ago and ups showed up at my house Friday July 29 leaving a note they wanted to collect another $39.81 when they re-delivered Aug 2. when I called customer service, they rep told me she could credit my credit card $25 and pay the $39.81 to ups. I explained to her I already paid the $39 charged to my credit card when I purchased the product. she told me I could refuse the package and when they had confirmation the product was returned they would credit the whole amount back to my credit card. what kind of scam is this?? I have ordered several products from the shopping channels and never had this issue?? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, because as it sits right now they have me over a barrel…like I am going to trust ill get a credit on my credit card, when they were not even honest about shipping charges…

    • kate says:

      I am not happy. I received the three extra large replacement bras yesterday in the mail.

      I sent 3 of the 6 L bras back. I have tried the XL on and they still bunch up around the ribcage area. I also measured them against the 3 L bras I still have and they are the same size! What is up with this? The bag I took them out of says XL. I am a size 14 -16. I will not by any of these bras. You may need to be a small size woman for these to work for you.

    • Ljrobb says:

      Refuse it and have it sent back. If they don’t take it off of your credit card , call your cc company and tell them you have a dispute. Tell them you never received the item and want the amount taken off. Most credit card companies will do this.

      I want this bra, but I refuse to order ANYTHING that is delivered UPS. UPS give you their brokerage services even though it is not needed on such a small item, and legally they can’t broker for you unless you request it. Just don’t order anything that is shipped UPS and you will be fine!

    The bras are very comfortable! I am a 36DD and they definitely cover me up all over the place. The only thing that I would complain about is the lack of support, but with such a big chest, support is hard to come by. I wouldn’t wear them to work because of the lack of support, but for running around doing errands, and cleaning and such they are great. The shipping cost is ridiculous though!

    • Kelly says:

      What size did you get? I’m a 36 DD also, and was wondering what size I should try. Thanks!

      • geri says:

        I also wear a 36DD and a size 12 to 14 top, what size did you order?

        • Renee says:

          I’m also a 36D. I wear an 8-10 shirt. I tried the Medium first but it was not comfortable. I then tried the Large and it’s perfect. So, in my opinion, a bit larger than normal would be correct.

          If you are able, I suggest you go pick up a box of 2 at Bed, Bath & Beyond. That’s what I did so I could try before committing to multiples. You can sign up for emails and get a 20% coupon on BB& B. Then, the bras are 2 for $16. The only bad thing is that the package has a nude and a black. White is not available there.

          Hope this helps!

  289. Becky says:

    I ordered my Genie Bras and they arrived quickly. I am very pleased with the fit and support. I have already ordered 3 more with lace. I am very pleased.

  290. Marlene Chandler says:

    I received a card for $20.00 dollars off for 6 Genie Bras at the price of $39.99, need to know how to order, Please inform me right away.

    Thank-You;

  291. Maranda says:

    I am so glad I read all these comments.. I was going to order the “Genie bra” until I saw a similar bra in “Khols” I tried it on and it was basically just a thin sports bra.. No support at all. Nipples showing (not the look I like). So, I figured the “Genie Bra” had to be similar. Then I figured I would do some research and ended up here.. Thanks ladies for all the comments. I appreciate it. You saved me out of time and money!!! I am one who has to try things on before I buy them and am VERY hesitant to buy ANYTHING that you have to order!!! Things are NEVER how the look on TV. They can make them look how they want on the television. That is how they make the money and I am sure some of the S&H goes to them as well. How else do they make money when most return them? That is why they make you pay the S&H for the so called “FREE” item!!! Again they have similar Bra’s that looks just like this “Genie Bra” at KHOLS.. So, if you are thinking of ordering it, go there first and try it on see if you like it… I didn’t. Just another attempt at a sport’s Bra!!!

  292. elsa nichols says:

    Worst product I ever lost so much money on. $52.00 to get them to me and $11.00 to send them back. Worth every penny to get rid of them. They are not microfiber – just plain nylon/spandex. Cups don’t expand. Breasts turn into tubes that flow out of the top and sides. I wear a 14 blouse and ordered both large and x-large thinking I’d wear these “comfortable” bras at night. Even the bigger ones caused overflow. Very, very uncomfortable. In hot climates, nylon just lets you sweat; microfiber wicks the moisture and lets you be comfortable. Everything in the ad is a fabrication – lies!!!

  293. Lisa says:

    I ordered 12 of these Genie bras. Each bra cost me $12.58 and that price is including shipping and handling! I am a kind of concerned after reading these reviews but there is another site that talks about how great they are. So who to believe. I say $12.58 isn’t to bad for a bra!

  294. Brigitte Guehr says:

    Biggest rip off ever! This is a cheap bralet you can buy at any discount store for about 3 bucks and won’t support anything over a 30 AA. They don’t tell you about the non refundable shipping charges of $29.98!!! for 6 of these flimsy things, so they can sell the same crap over and over after it gets returned and still make big bucks! Worst consumer fraud, I too will contact my credit card company! I can’t believe I fell for this!

    • Suro1 says:

      RIP OFF! They should be ashamed of themselves. What a piece of garbage. No support, and the and the quality is horrible. I Love being out $27.00 from the shipping and handling. Tell all your friends and family not to fall for this crap. Hopefully they will be out of business soon.

    • Dawn says:

      How does your credit card company help? What do you say to them??

  295. Kelly says:

    Hi all,

    I wish I could comment on how they fit, but I haven’t received them yet. I was supposed to receive them on July 19th (the Streamlite website displayed the expected date before or by that date). Who is Streamlite anyway?

    I called the company to inquire, the rep said they’ve been instructed to tell customers the delivery could take another week after the published date. So, he told me to wait another few days and I could file a claim at that time. The shipping company tracker said the shipper did not ask for a delivery confirmation so no other information would be published other than the scan at USPS. I would think a company would want delivery confirmation (but that is just me).

    I am not holding out much hope as it has been two weeks since the package was scanned by USPS.

    The little tidbit about refunds less shipping and handling is not on the main page or the order page of their site. You have to hunt for it on the customer care link to learn that 60-day Money Back guarantee does not mean ALL money.

    Why a “reputable” company would want to do business that way is beyond me. I have this feeling I will be contacting my credit card company.

    If you decide to order these, I wish you good luck.

  296. Rodrigo Sequeira R says:

    Hello, my name is Patricia Hidalgo, I need to buy Genie bra. I want to make you a question: where can I buy Genie bra if I live in Costa Rica, Central America?

    Please, write me at this direction rsequeira@jps.go.cr
    Thant you very much !!!!!

  297. Susie says:

    Pro’s: Lightweight material doesn’t hold in or soak up your sweat like a padded bra. Machine washable. Space Saver.

    Cons: They somehow flatten your chest at the same time of allowing you to sag. Not feminine or flattering at all. The inserts must be adjusted perfectly or it looks like you are wearing pointed pasties. Because the stitching and straps are so wide, I can’t wear them with any lightweight or fitted shirt because it looks like I’m wearing a sports bra. And despite the claim, the lower band does roll.

    Overall opinion: These are high priced sports bras. Maybe they are just meant for woman with a D or larger like the models on the infomercial. I just didn’t get the results they claimed.

  298. Anita says:

    Wow, I am flabergasted at all of the negative comments here. I love my Genie Bras. I ordered them on July 1st and they arrived on July 19th. I am a 40 DD and I ordered size Large. They are very comfortable and do not roll up, no spillage, no back fat, etc. I am not skinny and I wear a size 14 clothes. I hate wearing bras and rarely wear them or end up taking them off by mid-day because they are usually so uncomfortable. But I’ve been wearing these all day since I got them and forget I have it on. I look great in them and am pleased with the amount of lift I am getting from them, as my breasts are very very saggy. Oh well….I guess its the luck of the draw with this company as far as quality control and also it must depend on your body size and type as to whether this bra will work for you. Obviously not a one size fits all thing with this bra. Seems to be either a hit or miss with who can benefit from this product….I agree that there is no way this can work for very big breasted or very overweight women. (Funny…I thought I was big breasted! I guess not.)

  299. Sharon says:

    This is a rip-off. If you return them, they keep the shipping and handling charges twice!!! You pay $13.99 and another $13.99 for 6 bras and if you return them they keep the $27.98 even though you still have to pay to return them. I’m out $37.20 and I have no merchandise to show for it. THIS COMPANY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF ITSELF!!

  300. Tammie says:

    ALL I CAN SAY IS THANK YOU!!!! I am such an infomercial sucker. I was so ready to call and order these bra’s. For some reason I logged onto the website instead of calling. When I googled the product I seen Genie Bra reviews. Thank God I read them. I will not order these bra’s. The infomercial sounded amazing. I couldn’t wait to place my order. OMG thank you to all of you who placed your comments on here. I will most definitely read reviews before placing any further infomercial orders. I have been taken way too many times. So Kudos to all of you!!!!

    • Ina Wentzel says:

      I ordered and received xl/1x bras and I can’t even get them on. I want return authorization and a refund. thank you.

      • Sandy says:

        Same here, Ina. It just rolled up when I tried to put it on and take it off. The pads kept shifting around. I was spilling over the top and I made sure I measured and bought the right size. I let my husband talk me into ordering since they can be returned. After reading a lot of complaints about the return process and having to pay shipping to send it back, I think I’ll smack him in the head.

        • Kellie says:

          I am confused as to why you would have to pay S&H & I have not. To send the bras back I call the 800 number & they email me a label and the post office takes it no problem. I have had a problem with the sizing though. I am now waiting for my XL’s to arrive. I am definitely not a 1X/XL but given how the larges fit, I know the XL should be perfect. I found them to be very comfortable & perfect to wear under my scrubs. Good luck.

  301. Bootsie says:

    we need to start a class action suit against this company I just paid $139.00 and if I worn all nine there would be no support they are getting rich on the return shipping no doubt but this is a rip off.

  302. Kim says:

    The worst clothing purchase I’ve made in a decade. Damn the scam.

  303. Myriam says:

    Well, listen to me……. Unless you have the same body as Jane Fonda, it does not fit. It flattens your breasts like no business, absolutely no support and skin bulging out all over the place, specially under the arms. I don’t mind telling you: I am not very sexy.

    Following the commercial offering 3 sets of 3, I received only 2 sets. Since the deal 3 for 3 seemed good to me, I ordered the same for my sister (who’s gonna look as sexy as me!). The total should have been 18 and I have only 12. What a bunch of thieves. They charged me $64. shipping and I received my package by UPS who charged me another $23. What’s up with that UPS thing? Is it because I live in Canada? Ladies, don’t fall for that crap.

  304. Patty Arone says:

    I just wanted you to know that I ordered your bras and they do curl up and they also ride up in the back. I am not happy with them, but I will not send them back and loose my $25.98 shipping fee which is way to much for no more than the bras weighed. I will tell people not to order them.

  305. Irma says:

    Thank you all for your honest feedback. I too was just about to place my order yet after reading the feedback decided against it. Customer service is so key in this NEW ECONOMY. The shipping costs are far too high for the product.

    With tremendous appreciation, Irma

  306. Patty says:

    I have read the reviews and see a commonality among them. I don’t think this Genie bra is for large women or women with large breasts. I am a size 2/4 and 36C and this is the most wonderful item I have purchased in a long time. It doesn’t roll on my torso, but then again I am a small person with a flat stomach, and it is very flattering in the back. I don’t understand the comments about underarm rolls. I recommend this product for small petite women. When I ordered on the phone I was put through the many pitches for magazines, Wal-mart cards, cruises, etc. If you just keep pushing through the pitches with a consecutive “no thanks”, the phone purchase will take about 13 minutes. Also, I was told 3 weeks for shipping but I received the order in less than 2. As I mentioned, I don’t think this product is for large women with large stomachs or large breasts.

    • Renee says:

      Dear Patty, I am glad you are happy with your Genie bras. You being such a tiny, little skinny thing, with such a flat stomach and all. I guess all these bad fit reviws are just from bog ole fat flabby stomach and freakishly large breasted heffers. Bless your littleflat skinny heart. We appreciate your comments, but your choice of words are really insulting. Now go eat a sandwich.

      • Deb says:

        Dear Renee, I applaud your restrain regarding this freakishly perfect little flat skinny goddess. Of course if she was SO PERFECT she would not need a bra at all. God would have made them out of pure gold instead of silicone.

        • Sephi says:

          Geez guys lay off her not all women hate their bodies… For the record I am a size 18 and weight 225lbs… I am in no way skinny but I happen to love my body. I was once a tiny little thing and only weighed 140lbs but between children and such I gained weight. Do I hate or get insulted with skinny or fit women are happy with themselves … NO! Get over yourselves. Maybe this product does work better for women with well taken care of bodies… I noticed the same thing she did, which is that this product is not made for fat or obese women. I feel stupid because I ordered this before reading reviews but oh well… I am still a runner and could use them as sports bras… Any-who Patty I am glad this bra works for you and hope it works for me too =) but if it does not I will not hate on women who are in shape like you.

          • Cookie says:

            OMG!! Thank you Renee for your wonderful response I can’t stop laughing, this has made my day. It is wonderful to be young , fit and have a flat stomach, as I once was myself, but thankfully I have maintained my sense of humor if nothing else. I am grateful I read these letters and yours was priceless. Rah, rah, to the days of perky boobs and flat tummies, but gravity and children always prevail. Glad I didn’t invest in these.

      • Hunnee says:

        Thank you ladies for making my day. Renee, that was a great response and I didn’t see it as a hater response. I was about to purchase the Genie bra but I always read reviews first. I wish these companies would stop promoting so called one size fits all products. You just can’t do that with bras!. I am a 36 DDD or F depending on the bra. I though maybe I could wear the Genie bra as a leisure bra around the house but I am not going to waste my money. So glad I read reviews.

      • Susan says:

        She gave a helpful review! Not all women are big, and that was in no way insulting to those who are. Get over yourself.

        • Mandy says:

          No offense but if your fat your fat..and there is nothing wrong with someone who is skinny pointing it out. I’m skinny my sister is fat. We are both happy with who we are. If you don’t like yourself then change if not don’t bash someone for pointing out the obvious. Like my sister says..she has never felt like there was a skinny chick waiting to get out..her family(immediate,hubby and kids) loves her just the way she is…always

  307. LuAnn says:

    I too thought the infomercial was too good to be true and I went right to my purse and pulled out my credit card. God I wish I were double jointed and could kick myself in the ass. I haven’t received them yet but I’m not in a hurry after reading all the comments. :<(

  308. Virginia says:

    I watched the video and noticed that the lady that put it on had something under it you can see it when she pulls it up. My mother has some and she loves them. She is smaller then I am. They are just not made for big breast. I am a 38DDD and it does not support.

  309. KLP says:

    DO NOT ORDER THIS GENIE BRA

    I had lots of bounce and bulges at the side, so I contacted them (not easy). They shipped a larger size. I still had the same issues, so I returned both sizes. I’m still waiting for my refund. But they will not refund the $25.98 shipping and handling.

    THIEVES!!

  310. B Barker says:

    Pay attention to all the other postings, check your ego at the door (I had to), and buy this bra TWO–yes, TWO–sizes too large if you want one that fits. I am a 40D, dress size 12 or 14 and the XL genie bra was incredibly small, both in cup size and in band size around the ribcage. Further updates will be posted when I receive the bras that (hopefully) fit. When I called to exchange the bra, I said, “I’d like to exchange my genie bras” and right away, the customer service agent said, “Are your bras way too small?”

    Hopefully, genie bra will get the hint soon and resize.

    • Louise2 says:

      Possibly one problem with these bras is that they go strictly by shirt size, and do not take into consideration cup size. I am a 16, a bit larger than you, but my bra size is 38B. The XL Genie bras fit nicely. I do not put them in the dryer as they say you can, as I don’t think any bra is made to be dried at high temperature. I like my Genie bras, although I wish they came in more colors, or at least not black. Mine came with the inserts, which are easy to put in and take out. They take care of the nipple problem (my husband calls the inserts my boobie armor). The bra bands do roll up, but so do other bra bands and these are not as tight and stiff as some I have had. Overall, I like the bras. The shipping, however, is ridiculous.

  311. Roxxie says:

    I have two that were given to me and I just love them, so comfortable and the fit is great with no roll up no bulk I wore my black one with the bottoms of my bathing suit and it looked great. I have to say that I really do like this and I am sorry no one else does!

  312. Tammy says:

    DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!! Not only do you have to wait 6 weeks for your bras (they don’t tell you this until after you order) – when they came, one bra’s strap was sewn on wrong (completely unwearable). They do not support as advertised and the band rolls. I have worn them a couple of times and I’m constantly having to unroll the bottom band. They are not what is advertised, especially if you are big busted!

    TOTALLY UNSATISFIED!

  313. Tammy says:

    Yes I too would like to know how to go about returning these bras. My order came with no packaging slip, no return label nothing. I want a refund! Thanks

    • Barbara says:

      Tammy, just call the company. They asked me for my phone number & was able to look up my order for me. After, I found the email that was sent to me when I placed my order. Ask them for a return shipping label. Hope this helps!

  314. Lanna says:

    Thank you everyone for your feedback. I was just about to order these, but I thought I better check on some reviews before I do so. I’M SO HAPPY I DID. I’m sorry but anything that has reviews that are 98% bad, I’m not buying it, no matter what anyone says to try to defend them. Thank you everyone for your honesty for people like me, interested in buying this product. I will definitely spread the word to anyone else I know that might be interested.

  315. Theresa says:

    I bought one at Walmart to try for about $19 + tax as I didn’t want to shell out the $85 for 6. I am a DD. I must say it is comfortable but I find it has no more support than a $10 Sports Bra. The band does roll on me. Because it is nylon and spandex it feels like you are wearing a nylon stocking around your chest so it does get hot after several hours. I put powder underneath. It is very comfortable to wear to bed though so if the price comes down by at least a half I’ll consider more to wear at night.

    • Heather says:

      Really glad I read all these Genie Bra reviews. Especially yours. I too am a DD and I see that most of the ladies with issues with the Genie Bra are large breasted as well. I have to say I have seriously re-considered ordering it now. Thank you all for your feedback and I hope you are successful in getting your refunds!

  316. Hilary Mosher says:

    This bra is good. I know because I bought one at Walmart (aah bra). But when I ordered them on line, after I paid my money, I received an e-mail informing me that they are back-ordered and I will have to wait twice as long as advertised to receive them! This is false advertising.

  317. sharon gill says:

    why can a person not order the three bras that also act as a Cami without buying numerous plain ones first. I started the ordering process and by the time the lace bras were mentioned, I think I had accumulated 18 bras for which I don’t want,but was told that I couldn’t have the lace bras only. At that time I said to just cancel the order. Addressing the “postage and handling fee”, I felt that they were just too high. You know that they package these “offers” up as they come off the assembly line in one of the Chinese sweat shops. I would have loved to try out the lace bras, but I don’t want to have to own 18 other bras to have the lace.

  318. Elle says:

    I returned the bras. As far as I am concerned, the $25.95 shipping and handling paid for the 6 bras. Its a rip off and I am ashamed that I got robbed. Hopefully, I don’t have to wait long for my refund. They received the package last Monday and today is Friday and no refund yet. I asked the rep how long it takes, she told me 2-3 days after they receive the package, well someone lied.

  319. Andrea says:

    The Genie Bra is the biggest rip-off in the world! It has to be the worst product that I have ever made the mistake of purchasing. The fabric is cheap junk, and the construction is sub-standard. It is flimsy, and gives absolutely no support at all. The shipping and handling price is an outrage. I sent the whole package back and it only cost $5 compared to the $26 that I was charged. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. YOU WILL REGRET IT.

  320. Deana David says:

    Genie bra LOOKS like a great product. I wouldn’t know because I’ve yet to receive it. The company sent an email out over a week ago saying the package had shipping. Turns out it hadn’t actually shipping for 8 days later. Genie bras are VERY affordable, but then they take $25.98 for shipping– and the shipping in my case will take a full 3 weeks (best case scenario). My feeling is that is Genie bra IS a wonderful product – and I dearly hope it is since I’ve ordered 6) they should charge what a more realistic amount for the bras instead taking a whimsical amount for shipping and then providing the slowest, most unaccountable, shipping service since the camel caravan.

  321. Pat says:

    Don’t waste your money on Genie Bras, they are hard to put on, I bulge out from the bottom, around the sides and over the top. These are very uncomfortable bras…they are cheaply made. They have pads that you are supposed to take out when you wash and then put back in….so how do you wash the pads? and who has time to mess with having to take a bra apart to wash? Big scam….don’t waste your time or money on these.

  322. Ruth says:

    Try http://www.xchrome.com. ( or maybe http://www.x-chrome.com)

    Measure first- ordered one from here (many styles) for a very large busted friend- she was thrilled and would show people on occasion!

    Recently bought another style when my 17 y/o needed one bigger than most- again- so pleased I had difficulty getting it off her to wash it. Will be re-ordering more soon.

    They carry all sizes- sports, maternity, etc.

  323. martha says:

    OK so I was thinking about ordering the Genie bra but I read a lot of the reviews but they are all on c or d sizes. I’m an A size and I was wondering if it had the same complaints. I read some comments that said that it might work on women with less bust but like why is that?

    • Carla says:

      Hello Martha,

      So sorry to say it hon. But as a size A myself. I had to keep unrolling the darn thing. It wanted to rest under my armpits every time I moved. Sending the trash back. Hope they recycle them into a couple of grocery bags.

      The infomercial was nothing but a bunch of crap. Had to have been staged with the “perfect” bodies, and then glued into place.

  324. Lorin Schneider says:

    Sizing was all wrong for this bra. I told the woman I wear a 38C…she said large was fine. It’s fine if you like the muffin top under your arms and on your back. I wouldn’t trust their return policy because their shipping is the worst. Don’t buy this bra. Instead, go out and continue to look for great sports bras. They are better.

  325. Beverly says:

    The Genie bra is the WORST bra ever. When I put it on it was like I had nothing on. NO SUPPORT, I want a REFUND. I will tell everyone I know about the GENIE BRA, that’s it WORTHLESS.!!!! It took 6 weeks to get them. It better not take another 6 weeks to give me my REFUND!!

    • Kathy says:

      7-13-11

      Hi Beverly. Your comments on right on! It sounds like you are attempting to get a refund. How do I going about doing that also. I have tried their website and it has a sign about a 60 day return policy but there is nothing telling me how to go about this. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

      Thanks

      • Josey says:

        They are nothing more than a super cheaply made sports bra……no support whatsoever….the band underneath of it rolls and cuts into you. you look like you are growing another boob out of your arm pits! What were they thinking? Sizing is WAY off !!!! Washing is another pain in the behind….pull the insert out to wash and wash the inserts by hand…then try putting them back in ! Real scam…..save your money and buy a good fitting, comfortable sports bra. What Gene tried this on and wore it all day??

        • Tootsie says:

          Please don’t make fun of us who naturally have another boob growing under their armpit and don’t have insurance so we can go to the plastic surgeon to get it removed.

  326. karen from nj says:

    I love this bra! Like every other woman in the world I have paid top dollar for bras that look nice, but once you wash and dry them they look terrible the genie bra washes and dries perfectly. It really is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. I waited almost 2 months for it to arrive and thought about cancelling my order but I’m glad I did not. The only con I have with it is the straps are a bit wide so wearing it with a tank top the straps tend to show but otherwise I wear the bras everyday. I ordered 2 sets and got 2 sets free so I’m set for life.

    • Jessica says:

      What size bra do you regularly wear? It seems to me that the previous reviews I have read say the Genie Bra’s aren’t best for women with a larger chest.

  327. Sheryl says:

    This product is a joke. They advertise that it doesn’t roll. I had it on for less than 5 seconds and it started to roll. There are also thin pad inserts in the bra. They do not stay in place. I ordered the buy 3 get 3 free. I am returning mine, but they still stick you for the full amount of S/H, which was $25.98. That’s how they must make their money. The bras came shipped in a plastic bag, which was shoved into my mail box. Hardly worth the $26 bucks they charged me to get it to me!

  328. Mary E Matteson says:

    Today I opened up my package and tried on my new Genie bra. I can’t tell you how THRILLED I am to have made this purchase!!!! My order arrived within 3 weeks and the Genie bra fits EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED!! I really don’t know what all the bad reviews are all about. I measured myself EXACTLY the way I was told to measure and the product fits beautifully – as if it were made just for me. Perhaps people are not measuring correctly? Also – I am not huge, probably a B cup at the age of 56 and having nursed two infants. The store bras NEVER fit me right and the back bulges were always disgusting. Plus, I had pinching and squeezing and annoying issues with all the store bras. The Genie bra has surpassed my biggest expectations – I LOVE IT!! Thank you.

  329. annebelle says:

    I am a 42DDD and I was going to order these bra’s I am so happy I read these reviews. You all saved me a lot of money.

    Thanks

  330. sandra says:

    Maybe I should`ve read the comments about the Genie Bra..I was watching the Shopping Channel and they were showing the Genie Bra and how great this bra feels and the support you need and how the ladies were so convincing on how well the Genie Bra works so place an order.. I was told cost $59.99 for 3 bras and get 3 free I taught awesome deal, I would have to pay S&H was never told how much it cost.. It was $37.98 so now these 3 Genie Bras cost me $97.97. So I felt to took forever to get them so finally they show up and the delivery mans say you have to pay $30.84 for Import Charges which I had no idea about this charge.. so I pay for it.. I`m excited to see if these Bras are what they are all about so I open the package Wrong Size I was pissed so I call them.. I tell them they send the wrong size and what about this charge of $30.84 import charges and she said that what us Canadian have to pay in order to get our package from the US I said first time I ever heard about this and I order many of times from the US, she said they had no control off it cause it was Canada Customs but they are aware off that when we order from Canada that we have to pay Import Charges but they don`t tell there customers this so now for 3 Genie Bras it cost me $131.81. What happen to getting 3 bras for 59.99 plus S&H.. Was told that they well send me label to resend the bras and they would resend me the proper size at no charge to me… After 4 phone calls I find out that they are unable to send me the label cause it no good for Canada, so I have to resend it back at my cost, and they have to cancel this order and to reorder and they would give me a $20. discount and I would still have to pay S&H plus 30.84 import charges and I replied are you kidding me you are saying I`m getting a deal seriously.. So I said cancel my order and he said we can give $35.00 discount and still have to pay for S&S and import charges I was getting more pissed so I said let me speak to Supervisor he said we can safe $50.00 and I still have to pay for S&H and import charges and I still have to return the package I have here. I said this is not saving to me cause I will have to pay another $30.84 again for Import charges so how is that saving me, I was said nope by now my voice is raising and I`m getting more pissed and he keeps putting me on hold so he don`t have to listen to me he repeated putting me on hold 4 times and I came back with don`t put me on hold again so

      NEVER, NEVER order anything that is sent UPS from the states, UPS will rip you off. Your “import” charges are UPS charging an illegal brokerage fee. You don’t need a broker on small item orders!!! I refuse to order anything sent from anywhere if they use UPS.

    I am so thankful to have decided to find reviews for these bras. I just watched the infomercial for the 5th time. What made me suspicious was that every color on the infomercial seemed to have different necklines. Some were lower cut, some were so high as to be worn as camisoles.

    I am a 34DD with a lot of sagging and it has been a 20 year journey of finding comfortable bras. I usually buy Wacoal bras at a Nordstroms outlet (I think that’s the one!) in Sawgrass Mall (Florida) for about 30.00 apiece(usually 60.00 each regular price) but if they get in the dryer they shrink.

    The ONLY bra that I have found to be completely comfortable with good support (without underwire) is the Wacoal style # 857105 which is NO underwire, and it is discontinued on many websites. Just found this one that has it and I will see if I can find my size. The most comfortable bra I have owned.

    http://www.wacoalbras.com/wacoal_light_lift_minimizer_soft_cup_bra_857105.htm

    People have no idea how we large chested women suffer. I have to sleep with lightweight sports bras or camisoles that have some support..but my shoulders still have bra strap marks in the morning…

    • Michelle says:

      I can relate to all those large busted and the never ending search for support and comfort I am a 36DD and after trying MANY no wire Bra’s I think I have found one it is the AH BRA by Rhonda Sheer and WOW great fit, support, and and comfort just order by shirt size I am a medium and wear the ah-bra every day! hope this helps!

  332. Kathy says:

    I work for Better Business Bureau in a state other than NJ. Tristar Products, Inc., (of which Genie Bra is an affiliate) has an “F” rating as shown below on the NJ BBB website.

    Do NOT order products from infomercials until you confirm the S&H charges. There is NO federal law governing what a co. may charge for such fees, and thereby they often take advantage of overcharging in addition to the cost of the product.

    Often you can wait a few mos. and find many of these products locally yourself, with no S&H charges to contend with.

    File a complaint with the BBB in the state in which the company operates. You may also file a complaint in your state of residence and that BBB will forward the complaint to the appropriate state in which the co. is headquartered.

    If you don’t know the state in which a co. is headquartered, read the “Terms and Conditions” section of its website. Usually at the bottom will be an address or at least a telephone # of the main office in case of legal issues arising.

    If a company website is too obscure about info regarding contacting them, best to steer clear. They will be obscure about other issues as well many times.

    • Jenny says:

      Thank you Kathy… looks like you just saved me from a huge headache!

      • Deana David says:

        I wish I would have found this page before I ordered the bras. Looks like time for a law suit, with so many unhappy people.

        • SuzyQ says:

          I’m sure glad I got to read all the reviews before I ordered. There’s no way I will order this product with all this negative feedback. Thanks for the info.

          • Sheila says:

            So unbelievably grateful that I took the time to look for some reviews…I feel like I virtually dodged a bullet here :0

    • Preeti says:

      Thanks Kathy!
      You just saved me a lot of headache. I was going to order the bra after seeing the commercial. But decided to check out the reviews. Phew! Saved just in time!

  333. Judy says:

    I ordered the Genie bra In June, which they have had my money since and still no bra’s. The Company is on T.V. @ this time , trying to sell more bra’s and can’t even fill my order! Can’t say I’ll ever buy from this Company again… THIS IS NOT A GOOD COMPANY!!!!

  334. Sandra says:

    Thank you for your reviews….I’m glad I read them before buying. I was going to purchase these bras but now I will shop for them elsewhere.

  335. Jane Eitel says:

    This is a complaint…not about the genie bra, because I did not purchase one…..but about the process of ordering. I saw your ad on TV, went to your website, completed an order for the 6 bras for $59,95 plus s&h and submitted. I then saw the offer to call an 800 number to CONFIRM MY ORDER and have the chance to receive a $50 walmart gift card. I listened to the entire promotion, which I turned down and asked for confirmation of my order. I was told by Christine #47911 that she could not give me a confirmation of my order but COULD let me speak to someone about a FREE cruise to the Bahamas on Carnival Cruise lines…I also declined that offer and again asked for my confirmation number and was told that she had no means of getting me that info. I went back to the website where a message appeared that my order could not be completed as too much time had elapsed. I have to say that I am very disappointed and that you lost an order today because of the wording on your website.

  336. Shlivie says:

    I purchased the genie bras and was so excited to try them that I had even purchased a second set for an extraordinary price. When I received the package, and tried them on, I was disappointed. I was looking forward to receiving some comfortable and well supported bras, however, I got the opposite. Yes, the material is comfortable and they are easy to put on but they do NOT give you nice cleavage and NO support at all! As I walked in them and tested them out in my bedroom I realized that I would not be caught dead wearing one of these bras outside of my house and wobble down the street. I will be returning them asap.

  337. Holland says:

    I am a 34 DD I ordered. An XS-s I absolutely love this bra. I didn’t think it was going to work, but it does. It’s. Comfortable, supporting. (Surprisingly for someone so busty ) and flattering. Ill never go back. I’m so happy I gave it a short. Thank you genie bra I already Feel a difference with my back

    • Anna says:

      I am a 30 G, Do you think they will work for me and also so you nipples poke out when you wear them since they are not padded?

      • Holland says:

        Nothing pokes out. I love this Bra. It can’t hurt to try. I’ve had every kind of Bra and this one is my favorite. The padding is actually really nice. Its not too much just enough. All my bras usually have a lightly lined cup anyway.. I hope it works for you. :)

        • Frances says:

          Like you, I am a 34-DD and ordered the S/XS Genie bra. Unlike you, the bra simply did not fit. I really don’t see how DD cups could fit into those small padded tabs without some overlaps. I think it’s important for customers give honest reviews, particularly since we cannot rely on the product owners to be objective.

          • Holland says:

            I am giving an honest review. The Bra works great for me. I even wore it to the gym. And yes I am a 34 DD. I did say it MAY not work for all. I’ve told everyone about this Bra. I would never give a false opinion. It is my opinion.

  338. Sue McCormick says:

    I bought Genie bra in three colors, two each. They promised the band would not roll. It rolled like crazy. I was surprised by the dinky pads which were molded to a bizarre shape and not centered in the cups. The stitches that held the pads in place puckered. The pointy pads pointed east and west and looked weird. I had “muffin top” bulges at the edges of the pads and again at the edges of the bra. It did not lie smooth in back as they promised. It squeezed my breasts (38-D) together in the same uniboob shape as a sports bra. My underwire bra that I buy for about $12 at Wal-Mart is more attractive, more comfortable, more realistic in shape, certainly a better value.

    • LEZ says:

      Thank you everyone for your reviews. I just attempted to place an order with my American express card.. Surprise…….. they no longer accept the American express card. I even spoke to a supervisor who was interested only in a final sale anyway..American Express has an additional insurance policy where the customer comes first. After reading more than 10+ reviews I understand why American Express is no longer with them…. thanks for taking the time to write a review.

  339. Joy says:

    I ordered the Genie Bra on May 27th, and received them today, July 8, 2011. NOT as they appear on TV! I ordered a 2x because that’s the size shirt/blouse I wear. I am a 42DD and there is NO WAY this bra will fit me, not to mention that the cup barely covers at all. I thought surely it was mis-sized, but after reading the reviews, I realize it was not(wish I had read them before ordering). As stated in other reviews, I know I won’t receive a full refund of the cost, however, I hope I’ve learned a valuable lesson: You can’t trust these advertisements. They lie, and I really thought that Judy, who used to be on QVC, would not advertise something that was false. My bad!! Well, here goes….I will be calling and getting a return number to ship these back! DO NOT ORDER THESE IF YOU ARE A BIG BUSTED WOMAN!

  340. PJ says:

    DO NOT BUY THESE BRAS!

    Everything they claim on their infomercial is a lie.

    The bottom band in constantly rolling up. The shoulder straps dig in to your shoulders.
    There is no support at all unless you count being flattened and rolled to the arm pits as support. I have worn it twice and the material is piling.

    Very disappointed in this product. I have bought better bras at a chain store for a lot less money that gave better support and did not nag you all day.

    They are a joke!

  341. Melissa says:

    I eagerly awaited the arrival of my genie bras for my mom and I. We were so disappointed, it was more like a cheap sport bra. This bra does not work, being full breasted women, this bra provided no support at all. I guess if you are below a C cup, then you’ll be okay. The infomercials made it seem like this bra was for everyone, I just wished that I had read the reviews before I bought them. I will be returning my order.

  342. Elmyra Jackson says:

    The Genie bra did not work for me!! I told the bra specialist my T-shirt size,who then suggested the bra size she thought would fit me. I was skeptical that it would but agreed to go with the size she recommended. Sure enough, when the bras arrived, they were way too small. I called the company and requested two sizes larger, but the specialist insisted I go with the next size up. Again I was skeptical and told her so,but she insisted the next size up would be correct.

    The bras arrived promptly and just as I thought, did NOT fit! Don’t get me wrong ,the bra was extremely comfortable around my back etc., but just did not work for me. There was no support and there was way too much breasts hanging out,so I requested a refund. Here is the rub- all the bras were returned for refund and I received an email that they had indeed been returned and processed for refund.

    My thinking was I should have received a refund back into my account the same day. I didn’t. I called the customer care number and the rep I spoke with said I would be receiving a refund in 3-5 business days. I called again this afternoon because I still have not received my refund, even though the email states my refund was processed.

    I was told today that since I just requested a refund yesterday, it would take 3-5 business days to receive the refund. WHAT?? I didn’t request it!! The refund was to be sent anyway. It appears I am being made to be problem since I didn’t “request a refund until 7/6/2011.”

    If a product does not work for you and you return the product,why is it taking so long for me to get my refund? By the way, it has been 6 business days already since I returned the product. I’d like some help with this. This is not good business!

  343. Shanna says:

    I am EXTREMELY unhappy with my genie bras. Here is why:

    1: I live in Canada. I ordered my genie bras and it took 2 months to receive my order. Because I am in Canada, I have to pay extra postage which brings my total to about 100$.

    2. Once I received my order, because I am in Canada, UPS charged me a brokerage fee of 30.95$ at the door to get my package.

    3. I ordered my bras in XL/1X as per the websites suggestion to go with your shirt size. THEY DO NOT FIT!

    4. I contacted customer service and asked to get and exchange for 2X, thinking this would do it. Since I am in Canada, I don’t have to send my package back since it is not worth the postage for them. So I get to keep them and I reorder a bigger size.

    5. Package arrives, again, I had to pay 30.95 brokerage fee to UPS.

    6. THEY STILL DON”T FIT! I am a heavy chested woman dying to find a bras that holds but doesn’t hurt and these bras DON’T HAVE ANY SUPPORT! I called customer service to get a full refund but they would only refund me the 59.95$ only AND I would have to send back my two package of wrong size bras. That would mean I spent 100$ in postage out of my pocket and I would not have ANY BRAS! So I said no and that I would write a bad review. At this, they are giving me a 25$ refund for my troubles.

    7, The pads SUCK! they are way too small.

    8. The elastic band at the bottom does not stay flat and although a 2X in a shirt size would fit me fine, even it is a little big, the 2X in the bras doesn’t seem to be long enough so the bottom band is right under the breast, like a sports bras that is too small and the lower band holds the bust almost like an under wire. It is not lovely.

    9. It does not give my breasts a nice shape as they show on the tv commercials and online.

    10. I would not recommend the genie bras to anyone.

    • Ally says:

      Thanks for your review Shanna. I too wear a 2X and live in Canada, so I am glad I saw this before I went ahead and ordered. I am on a very limited income so you just saved me all the customs charges. Thanks again and I’ll wish us both luck in finding something comfy!

    • GJ says:

      Thanks to you all for telling it like it is. You’ve saved me $90. US. I’m a 38H and thought it would be very comfortable, but if they roll and offer no support, I’m better off spending my money locally at Nordstroms! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  344. Valerie says:

    I was excited to try out this bra, when I finally received it and tried it on, I was not satisfied at all. The only thing that it’s good for is comfort and no back fat… as for support, none whatsoever. My breasts looked flatter and saggier. I was very disappointed. My sports bra has way more support than this. My bra size is 32-DD. Anyway, I called to get a refund which was no problem, but I’m not getting back the $38 shipping and handling fee I paid for, nor am I getting back the extra $30 brokerage fee that UPS charged me. So I’m basically getting $60 back for the bras, and I wasted $68 for shipping and brokerage. I also have to pay my own shipping to return these bras, is it worth it?

    • Dee says:

      Thank you, Valerie! So glad I read this! I am the same size and dearly want something that fits and is comfy. Won’t be the genie, that’s for sure!

      • Frances says:

        I should have read your review before I got sucked into those deceptive TV commercials and sales agents. I appreciate the honesty.

  345. Myriam says:

    HELP! Last week I ordered this bra by phone. The commercial said buy 1 set of 3 (white, beige and black) and get 1 set free. But wait there is more. If you call within 15 minutes, you’ll get a third set of 3 (total 9). They sent me the confirmation of my order and surprise they will send me only 6 bras. I called them today and they assured me that it was only for 6 bras. I was not dreaming that day, they were really offering 3 sets of 3. Did someone saw that commercial too !!!

    • MFischer12 says:

      Have not seen that one. The one I saw was for a 3 bra offer, but when I went to the website, it was buy three get three. The total, with shipping came to $85.97. One thing I did notice was the charge came out of my account right away and a few days later got put back in and came out again a week later and screwed up my budgeting. So I suggest to keep an eye on that.

    • Birgit says:

      No Myriam, you were not dreaming! I saw the same a couple of days ago. Have a great day! :)

    • Sue says:

      I saw it too. Ordered three sets. Got two sets. They suck!! Odd shape, don’t fit, way overpriced, don’t support (just smash my breasts flat and squash them together). Very, very dissatisfied.

    • Nancy says:

      I definitely saw that ad! 9 bras were promised. I really wanted to call and order right away … It all sounded so great … But I was on a flight on Jet Blue at the time, watching their in-flight tv, and thankfully couldn’t make the call. After reading all these negative reviews, I am SO grateful I never called.

    • Martha says:

      Yes, I saw the commercial offering 9 bras earlier today. I had decided to order, but first wanted to see the reviews, which I am glad I did. You were not dreaming, there was an offer (but wait, there’s more!!!E%T%^%W#) for 9 bras, three of each color.

      • Carol sue says:

        Ditto ditto ditto

        Infomercial did promise three sets. When I called they said I was wrong. Only two!! Buyer beware

        Bait and switch.
        Would never do business with this company

    • Judy says:

      Myriam….I too saw the same commercial that you did and when I called to order neither of the 3 persons I spoke to knew anything about the commercial on tv. I told them all they needed to get up to speed on what they have running on tv. I was so pissed off at these persons. What a group of morons that work for this company. I did order and the size they recommended was too small, so I exchanged for the bigger size but they still weren’t right. The bands roll and they are not supposed too and since it is so hot out, getting one of them off is really not fun…it’s almost claustrophobic to remove and you have no nice cleavage with these, all this is is a super expensive (WITH THE S& H) sports bra. I would never wear one with any thing dressy. The look would not be pretty..I just made the call to let them know these bras are on their way back and I want a refund. Hope that doesn’t take as long as it took to get the bras. I know how frustrated you must be. I wanted to reach through the phone and choke these persons, you were right because I saw that VERY SAME commercial so you were not dreaming. Pissed me off that they thought I was mistaken….but I was not and neither were you!!

    • ~*amy*~ says:

      I just saw that same advertisement this morning @ 6am. “call in the next 15 mins &get 3 more bras totaling 9 bras for the same low price of $59.99 just pay s&h for each bra” Thank goodness I thought to find some reviews 1st b/c I was convinced for a second…more like suckered! Thanks everyone for taking the time to share your experiences, y’all saved me a lot of headaches & disappointment it sounds like!

    • Star says:

      I saw it just yesterday! I wanted to rush right online to order, but I chose to look for some reviews. Good thing, these are not made for bustier women. I’m going to check out the website further up posted by a lady.

      Thanks

  346. Headlights says:

    Thanks for so many personal reviews. I was considering trying the bra but changed my mind. After thinking about buying a supportive bra, I realized that I was following a pipe dream. I wear a 36H which is hard to fit. Us blessed full figure ladies are having to come to the reality that we are going to paid much more for a supportive bra. I have had good luck with the following bras. Wacoal $60.00, Chantelle $80.00 and Fantasie $75.00. The Fantasie line gives good separation (lays flat between my breast)which made me appear smaller. I do not think it is possible for a bra styled like the Genie Bras can really support a average to large breast.

    • Diane says:

      Thank you so much for sharing information.

      • Vickie says:

        Thank you so much for all the reviews, sure helped me in deciding to try this type of bra! Headlights, you mentioned the Fantasie line, what size did you order and can this bra be purchased in stores? Thanks again to everyone for your reviews!

  347. Alicia says:

    I recently purchased the genie bras, unhappy at the shipping charges, $25.99/$12.99 for each 3 pack which come in the same package and it’s buy 3 get 3 free, just pay shipping charges for the 3 free ones, yet to receive a full refund of $59.99 you have to return all 6 bras even though you already paid for the shipping charge, which is non refundable,
    The bra itself is not as they say, I did not like the fact that they do not say it has a pad, which moves around a lot, and shows through your blouses and makes your boobs look smaller and make the shape look ugly. Do not buy, I do not recommend it, now I’m out $25.99 for shipping charges, NOT A DEAL AT ALL!! HATE IT!!

    • Jan says:

      Take heed ladies if you do not have perky boobs this bra will not hold you up, but why would someone with perky boobs want a bra like this? I’m an older woman 40C and I got suckered into believing how comfortable this bra would be, but the ridges in my shoulders prove that isn’t true. When I was young I wouldn’t be caught dead with a bra like this, but that is NOT the market they are playing too. They are selling a lie to people like me. I totally agree the bras I received were not “As seen on TV” I was shocked by the pad so I removed it and there was NO support or control at all. I put them back in and had a minimal amount of support. I wear a 40 C bra so I ordered XL. I spilled out the top even while my bust sagged. I called customer service complained the bra was lower than the ones shown on the women that were 38 DDD and I didn’t see how it could be worn as a camisole, also as advertised, unless I was a burlesque queen. The lady told me I needed a smaller bra. She said what would I have to lose by trying, so I said OK. My husband said NO Way a smaller bra would work. She did not tell me I needed a return # and when I tried to print out the return label that came with the sales order to my e-mail it would not print. I said the hell with it and thought I’d just keep the bras and give them to my daughters. The next day in my e-mail was the return # and a new return address label . I called to cancel the smaller size they were sending and was told I could not do that. Now if I don’t get the NEW bras before the 30 days in which I have to send back the old bras I will get charged for them too. I told the service person if they charged my credit card I would call and refute the charge. The service person told me to REFUSE the package, but I still wonder about doing that.

  348. Kathy says:

    I wear a 3X top, (48DDD bra). I managed to get the 3X genie bra over my hips and up to my bust. Felt comfortable around the band below my bust, but coverage was barely a B cup; spillage all around and uni-boob look. So disappointed, I had hoped comfort was finally available.

    F Y I…I ordered 6/24/11 and received 7/5/11.

    Returning bras, hoping for a a prompt refund.

    • Shanna says:

      I feel your pain. I am a 42D/DD. Same complaints here. You can read my full review up above.

      • sherry says:

        Thank you for the much needed information. I almost made a costly mistake in ordering the genie bra. I am a 48DDD. oh well back to the drawing board.

  349. Mimi says:

    My fiancee ordered the Genie Bra a few days ago as a gift for me. Wish he had read the reviews first.

    He was charged TWICE, and now his checking account is overdrawn. He will attempt to cancel both orders…

    (Please keep posting your experiences. Hopefully others will heed the warnings too. I really appreciate the posts about fraudulent BBB practices and also those from former employees of As Seen On TV companies.)

      Good luck with the New Jersey BBB. They referred me to the Office of Consumer Protection to which you have to write a letter. Been way too busy with a wedding and illness to even do that. Plus, I did get a refund of $71.93 since my bank cancelled out my credit card before the products even shipped. But they did not give me the $25.98 that were supposed to be P&H charges back. Have to call them again. Wish me luck with that! This company continues to advertise on many cable channels. Guess it’s the Consumer Protection office that could succeed in getting that done.

    My mom and I bought these bra’s because we couldn’t find anything that worked. The only bra’s I could ever find and liked are from Victoria’s Secret, but they are so expensive. When I received my order I was surprised by the padding. It is small and the whole bra in fact just looked small. I put it on and instantly the bottoms roll up and there is no support. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

  351. Loretta says:

    Don’t buy this product. The ones I bought are inconsistent in sizing, some are much smaller than others, even thought I ordered them all in the same size. My breast keep half coming out of the cup leaving me looking deformed. The white ones (Don’t know why just the white ones) the straps roll down my arm and I have to keep pulling them up. Today I took one out of the drawer to wear, a black one, it was so small I could not even get it on. From now on I go to a store where they have people to help you get a good fit. The genie bra is not work the money.

    BEWARE CANADIANS!!!

    My 6 (six) genie bras were priced at $59.99. With shipping and handling, I will billed $99.26 on my Visa card …… AND THAT’S NOT ALL ……….

    When they arrived at my door via UPS, I was billed an additional $30.75,
    for brokerage and duty plus GST …….. for a whopping total of $130.01 for a $59.99 order.
    Absolutely …….do not order these bras!!!

    I have to admit, they are somewhat comfortable, but the band at the bottom rolls up, and the shoulder bands also scrunch together, and you can count on sagging with these bras. Definitely no support!
    They are very flimsy, and certainly NOT WORTH $130.01.

    Shop elsewhere!

    On television your ad said that the genie bra does not roll up. While I got my order and my genie bras do roll up I find this was false advertisment. That part should not be said. I ordered and received the XL size does that make a different? Please email me about this thank you.

  354. Evelyn says:

    I was seriously considering purchasing the genie bra as I’m a 38D. However, after reading so many negative reviews I have changed my mink. Thanks for the info ladies!

    • AMy says:

      Thank you for the honest reviews. I was seriously considering trying these bras (I’m 38 C or D)- I thought these would be a better alternative to sports bras due to the nature of my job, but the honest reviews show me I’m saving myself aggravation, time and money. I wonder if anyone who tried them is happy?

  355. Becky says:

    I purchased the Genie Bra’s and I am not completely satisfied. They say they don’t roll up at the bottom. Well, I am 63, a little over weight and they do roll up. Also, they have a stiff padding in the cups I wasn’t expecting.

    It took forever to get them. In fact I had to call them. First the told me my credit card wasn’t good, to which I told them that was impossible. Finally after a long conversation with a man I could hardly understand he said he would get them out to me. After about a week I finally got them.

  356. Laura says:

    I highly recommend Underarmor sports bras, have all the features of the “Genie Bra”. Thick quality, doesn’t move and 7 have lasted me through Army Basic Training and AIT (HOOAH). http://www.underarmour.com/shop/us/en/womens/apparel/sports-bras?&cid=PS|Google|Brand%20+%20Keyword|US|||under%20armour%20sports%20bra|&008=&004=1285126864&005=135153415&006=6049899154&007=Search&002=1227021

  357. B. Price says:

    COMPLETE RIP OFF!!!! You would be better off to buy a roll of gauze and wrap it around you. This has to be the worst TV commercial scam out there. I wish there some legal action that could be taken. The $25.99 “shipping and handling” is another rip off. The postage was actually closer to $3.00.

  358. Debbie Hall says:

    Ordered by shirt size and bra did not fit. Too large, no support. Would not recommend for large busted women.

  359. Tara Riggins says:

    I ordered some Genie Bras. While it did take two months to receive them, I was patient. Thank goodness I was! They’re great! I’m a 34 C. I read some reviews after I purchased & was instantly horrified after reading all the posts saying how awful they were. However, I have found that they totally support me. I ride horses and barrel race & let me tell you, when you’re on a powerful horse, you need to be supported. These bras totally hold my breasts without feeling uncomfortable. Thank you Genie Bra!

    • Melanie says:

      I don’t understand the complaints. I’m a 40 D and I was skeptic. When I received them, the first thing that I noticed is that they had pads which I was worried that it would make me look bigger (I don’t wear padded bras). So I put it on and was surprised at the difference.

      My usual bras make my breasts look big, they cut underneath the breasts, pudge shows on the sides and I’m always having to adjust the straps. When I get home from work, I usually take my bra off for the rest of the day unless I’m going out because of the binding underneath the breast and the band getting all wet from perspiration. For the first time, I actually came home and wore it until bath time and bed. My husband was pleased as well with the fit and my comfort. The only flaw is the pads. They aren’t anchored but once I adjusted the pads in the cups, they pretty much stayed in place. I ordered my bras on June 26 and received them on July 9th, that’s almost two weeks (I didn’t expect them for another 4 weeks) and I didn’t have to pay any extra money. I figure that they cost me a little more than $14.00 per bra (includes shipping for the bras as well). A very good value considering my Playtex bras cost me anywhere from $16.99 to $20.00 something dollars.

      I guess it depends on what you are looking for in a bra. I love mine and so does my daughter. But what my be right for me isn’t necessarily right for someone else.

      • Sheila says:

        I think the main thing I have noticed with all of the complaints I have read here is that the neither the product nor the company can be depended upon to be consistent in either price, fit, or delivery. Some people get their product right away, while others wait upwards of 8 weeks….some people get bras that fi close to how they were expected to, while others find them too small or too large, and ALL say that the band rolls up. In my opinion it speaks to a Quality Control issue, overall BAD Customer Service and just not a company I would ever do business with….and thanks to everyone who was not afraid to express their views on this website, I haven’t done business with.
        So that, in a nutshell, is the reason for all the complaints. I think it is wonderful that your bras worked out for you, but if I were you I would think twice about ordering them again, b/c inconsistency seems to be the order of the day with this company.

  360. Carmen Salas says:

    I just received my Genie Bra last week – what a scam – no support – flimsy -do nothing that they advertise. Ladies don’t purchase trust me.

  361. Lancy says:

    I was just about to click “Complete Your Order” when I got the bright idea to read some customer reviews first. THANK YOU to all who wrote about their bad experiences and saved me $85. The Genie Bra TV commercial does a good job of scamming us large-breasted women. Why can’t modern technology solve this little (big) problem? Hey, women scientists! Get moving!

    • Stella O says:

      I finally broke down and bought some great bras! They are the same bras that Oprah wears! I love them and my breasts haven’t stood this high in years! They cost more than a bra you might buy in a discount store, but well worth it! They even have some great sales too!! The Dream Tisha Seamless Full Fit bra runs a little bit big, but the other ones I have ordered have been great!

      • Ebony says:

        I have heard of these and will now take the steps to get one. Thanks to everyone for bringing me back to reality. I wanted the Genie or the Ahh bra to work for the large busted women but deep down knew they wouldn’t. I will not be ordering either one.

    • wendy says:

      I had a look at this site that Laura recommended in her review above and I believe it could be of interest to any big busted active woman but I also think that you would need to be reasonably fit to be able to handle getting in on and off, especially in hot sweaty weather. I am in my 70s but I am going to give it a go anyway because although I am older and less nimble I am reasonably active and need the support.

  362. Candice lovett says:

    It’s terrible to get on and it’s too small. If you’re well endowed, get a size larger…don’t go by your shirt size…I have 6 of these things and their a bear to put on…curl up all over the place…I hate it!

  363. Annette says:

    Finally the 6 bras I ordered came in the mail today…OMG!!! What a disappointment!!! I didn’t have the bra on 30 seconds when the band started rolling up. It feels like a sports bra, or just a band with straps, and it has smashed my breasts down so I have lost at least one cup size. There is a little “spillage” at the top, and I now have a uniboob!!! Oh, and it was difficult for me to put on…couldn’t do it over my head; had to start from my feet and work up. I absolutely HATE this bra, and feel I was ripped off the $85+ it cost me. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

  364. Chardey says:

    I saw the commercial, was trying NOT to be naive, had my credit card out and my Internet Browser crashed. Probably for a good reason; to tell me to Google Genie Bras again and to this time look at the Reviews search that came up.

    Thank you ALL for your comments to STOP me from going through a purchase that would have caused me to return an item that would NOT support my 42DD’s and really need a comfortable bra and am sick of wires breaking on me.

    The RETURN comments were also very helpful in my decession. Thank to all the women who take the extra time to post comments to give the rest of US the heads UP to not be scammed too!

    THANK YOU!

  365. MMJ says:

    The dates on these posts keep updating. So readers know, this is being written on 01 July 11.

    First, the bra is 96% nylon and 4% lycra or spandex (can’t remember), so it’s not going to breath well.

    Next…
    **The Genie bra is not for people over a B cup or any one who’s fat (me). I am a DD/DDD. There is definitely no support–even with the two-inch “support band.” The band instantly rode up under my breasts. My back rolls are still there as are my underarm rolls (and they have rolled up bra in them. == I wear 2x-4x (depending on the cut). I ordered 3x. I don’t think going to a higher or lower size would make a difference in this.

    **There is no lift. There is no separation. This does not “perk” up one’s breasts.

    **This is definitely not a sports bra, especially for large-breasted women. Though I don’t bounce when I walk, my breasts shake–a lot–when shimmied. There is no way it would be good for any aerobic exercise (dance, running, jumping, etc.) What it is is a comfort/lounge bra. Better than nothing, not as good as a “real” bra.

    **The bra is “padded,” if you could call it that, with these triangles of foam that are not anchored. That is, being smaller than the space they’re in, they float from top to bottom and side to side. Under tight shirts, this could be pretty embarrassing.

    If you still want the bra, find them cheaper than 3 for $59.99 + $12.99 (+ $12.99 for a “free” 3) shipping (at geniebra.com). I found buygeniebra.com sold them 3 for $39.99 +$9.99 shipping (+$9.99 for 3 free). geniebra.com/specialoffer sells them 3 for $29.99 + $9.99, no offer for freebies. However, they do have three styles.

    I knew what I was buying when I purchased these. I was looking for lounge/emergency bras. I knew they wouldn’t be as good as the commercials made them out to be. The plus… That for all the negative, the bra is no more uncomfortable than other bras, even with the rolling up.

    • PS Sprinkle says:

      Thank you so much for the geniebra.com/specialoffer website tip. I have decided to try even with the bad reviews. Don’t mind giving them a try at $ 40.00 for 3. A decent sports bra cost more than this.

    • MMJ says:

      MMJ says:

      Update…
      Now that I’ve had a chance to wear the bras longer, I thought I’d update my review. When I was looking to purchase, this was the only site I could find with reviews. Now they’re all over, even YouTube. Forewarned is forearmed.

      Since people mention the shipping, I will say that I was not charged until the bras shipped. I was given a 4-6 week shipping time frame. The bras came at the beginning of week six. == NOTE: I did not order from geniebra.com, but from buygeniebra.com. I don’t know if this makes a difference or not. It *did* in pricing. Including shipping, I got six bras for $10 each.

      And to answer someone’s questions about wearing as a camisole… The regular Genies on the infomercial cannot be worn that way. However, they do have a set of lace-edged cami-genies available. They also have animal-print ones. I saw them on a flyer I received with the order, geniebra.com/specialoffer. (As of today, 08/28/11, the lace ones on this site are out.)

      My update:
      1. They definitely do not breathe. Nor do they wick away moisture. I’m using more powder to keep dry in the HOT HOT HOT AZ weather. I’m also looking into products one wears with their bras to soak up moisture.

      2. Though all the bras I received are 3x, the black bra is tighter than the white, which is tighter than the beige. The black squished my breasts flat. The good news is that the breasts stayed separated longer, but only because the black was so tight they couldn’t move easily. However, once they did, I had what others described as uniboob (but it was more like butt-breast with muffin on top). For me, the black is virtually unwearable. Too constricting.

      3. After a few wearings, the white “cup” and straps areas seemed to stretch. That is, I felt more saggy, a lot less supported (and these don’t start that supportive). So far, however, they’ve regained their original size/shape with washing.

      3. After seeing the infomercial again, I have to respond to their claims of:
      **Lift: <No. Though I'm not sagging, I am definitely not "lifted." (I don’t particularly like my nipples pointing below the equator, if you know what I mean.)
      **Separation <No. I've tried separating, but there's nothing to the bra to *hold* one's breasts separate.
      **Support <No. There is neither the side nor lift supports one would get from a "regular" bra, even with the inserts.
      **Comfort <Yes. I have to admit that even with the moisture and the rolling, I have not been totally uncomfortable in this bra. I've worn the white and beige for 12+-hour days without pain in my back or shoulders and with no more adjusting than I do when wearing my underwires, etc. The beige is better fitting than the white, but both are okay comfortable. It’s the one thing I love about this bra.
      == NOTE: I have not exercised (and will not) in this bra, no aerobics, etc. This is just daily wear to work and out and about or sleeping. This is definitely NOT a sports bra.

      4. The triangle "padding" can be removed for wearing or washing or reshaping. I don't know if the triangle is supposed to assist in support or not, but when it's in, it's as if I have a skullcap on my breasts. Weird. Worse, as someone else mentioned, since it doesn't cover the entire breast, one gets "muffin tops" or ridges around the triangle. Icky. It seems to be there for modesty reasons, though with it moving about, throughout the day I don’t know how much modesty I get. Also, some review I saw on YouTube mentioned the “padding” was a separate purchase. I don’t know how much she was charged, but making that a separate purchase is pretty cheesy on Genie’s part. This was NOT an extra purchase for me. My bras came “padded.”

      All in all, I would not recommend this bra to friends/family. Though, I did lend the black on to my sister. She’s a medium/large. The 3x black fit her and she found it comfortable (except for the weird padding. The "support band" rolled up under her breasts as well. (She's a C/D cup). I wonder how her own size would be.

      Genies are definitely not worth the price most are paying. As mentioned, after using the buygenie.com site—with both cheaper pricing AND shipping, the bras came to $10 each, $15 not counting the black. However, I kept and use them since I would have been out shipping if I'd returned—while $10-$15 is too much to pay, minus $20 would be worse. Again, they’re not bad bras, they’re just not very good bras.

      Now to see how long they last before fully losing elasticity and shape. As I mentioned, after a couple of wearings, the cups in the white seemed to stretch out. Also, one of the white bras seams have started fraying. We'll see…

  366. Tawnya Lon says:

    Do not waste your money on these bras. They provide absolutely no support. If you are large chested, the little movable pads inside are too small and just look like you have a bump on each boob. You can’t take out the pads because then it is obvious your chest is lying on your stomach. Total and complete waste of money. Also, as everyone said, if you send them back for a refund, you only get the merchandise refunded and are stuck with $50 in shipping. What a scam!

  367. v m thopson says:

    I’ve never read so many consistently bad reviews about a product! I’m also sorry all you ladies got so ‘taken’, and I was going to order but now definitely will not. thanks for your honest opinions, I do hope some attorney starts a class action and you all get your money back!

  368. Nancy says:

    I ordered Genie bras, but have not received them yet. Is there any way to return to sender when they arrive, and get my money back? What a major disappointment!! So sad we all got scammed!!!

    • Lucys says:

      Refuse delivery on the packaging & do not open. Once it is received back to shipping headquarters you will receive a refund. Make sure you call about once a week to see when your money will be refunded after you refuse delivery. I worked for the as seen on tv network.

  369. Mary Jorgensen says:

    WOW—What a colossal disappointment!!! Waited forever for these, and they are absolutely nothing like the ads. The ladies in the TV ads said they were DD, and the bras they had on looked great. What arrived yesterday was a stretchy something, with pads, that was too tight and barely an A cup. Not a chance in the world that a C or D, let alone a DD would fit in there.

    Slipped one bra over my head, after removing the ridiculous pads, and immediately the band rolled up under the cups and would not unroll no matter how hard I tried to unfurl it. Exactly what I had asked the sales person if the bras would do (response, “absolutely not”).

    I can’t believe these are the same bras featured on TV. Those appear to have full cups, fit the women and don’t roll up.

    Perhaps if one weighs 100 pounds and is a small B cup tops, it might conceivably work, but they aren’t comfortable either way. Horrible, horrible product!!! and expensive to boot. How do they get away with this type of advertising??

    This is one of the very worst products as far as being what is represented on TV.

    Mine are back in the mail for a refund and will never order again. In addition, try to find “Customer Service” phone number. No invoice in the package, no order number, and no way to return. Called the only number given, and was given an automated number for the Customer Service. Customer Service had no available operators and I was given yet a third number to call so I finally got through.

    Don’t waste your time or money. What you see on TV is NOT what you will receive–at least I didn’t get anything resembling a bra that would come close to fitting.

    I ended up buying some bras on ebay–any one of them fits better than this Genie mess. How did they ever sell any??

  370. MARY-CATHERINE FONTENOT says:

    Ms. Noah.

    I placed an order for Genie Bras, they ended up being to small and I sent them back for an exchange. I used the shipping label provided by the customer service rep and explained to her that the generated label’s address was different from the address provided by the advertised address for returns. She advised me that returns and exchanges had different generated labels, and that my package will be sent with ‘No Postage Neccessary’ if I used the generated label from customer service…

    Since the package had a label of ‘No Postage Needed’ I just handed it in to a Pack ‘n’ Mail (972-403-3800) I think it went USPS… Pack’n’Save gave me NO receipt , the package had your label, your bar code and what looked like a tracking number under the bar code, or perhaps my order number ( 215-2011-22168-071).

    Please help me resolve this problem; I don’t want to be charge twice!!! The bras may be lost in the mail, or the customer service rep may have made a mistake with the generated label which I used to mail the package. There is No way I can resolve this on my own! The Pack ‘n’ Save I utilized has no way of tracking it, they think that it may have gone USPS… USPS has NO way of tracking it without some type of receipt or tracking label.,.. This issue is going around in circles, I strongly feel I don’t deserve to lose money a second time!!! Please help me anyone…

  371. Deb says:

    Waited forever to get them, put one on and put them back in package and sent back, took forever to get refund. Don’t bother I am a 38c
    should be easy enough to fit. can’t imagine larger sizes getting any support at all.

  372. V Jordan says:

    The Genie bra is nothing like what they advertised. It is simply a sports bra with pads that do not stay in place. Once washed you have to re-create your bra. It is comfortable on the shoulders, but it does not lift, and there is no separation. It will roll in the back, it does not stay smooth.

    This was a bad purchase for me.

    It took forever to received the bra’s, and I was so disappointed in the product.

    • Rachel says:

      When I ordered my Genie bras they said it would take 2 – 3 weeks. I had mine delivered via USPS in 4 days. Not what I expected from reading negative posts. My main issue with other bras is spillage over the top. I am a 36C and wear a size 6. It is only day 2 and they are comfy, look nice under my summer T’s and give me support. My only issue is they do roll up under my breasts. At this point I am pleased with them, I hope they wash as well as they claim!

    • Christine says:

      Not at all what they advertised.

      These bras are not very flattering or supportive on me as a 36C, and were a disappointment based on the claims that were made.

      I have decided to use them as “work bras” for low impact workouts like yoga or pilates, or dirty jobs like yard work or house chores. I suppose for less than 15.00 each they have some value in letting you preserve your well made and nicely fitting bras from getting sweaty or dirty.

      I do think though you could easily find something comparable at any of the large stores that have inexpensive sports clothing.

  373. Kimberly says:

    After waiting for 6 1/2 weeks to receive a product that I was so excited about from watching all the commercials….I CANNOT be anymore disappointed!!!! I am a full figured WOMAN, not a teenie bomper needing a training bra. These things are horrible and total false advertising. There is no way a full figured WOMAN could ever wear these bras, unless you like popping out everywhere.

    Then called customer service to get a full refund and was told I had to pay to send them back and they would only credit the merchandise back……that would mean I paid more in shippign than the actual merchandise. Not to mention the call center in India totally tries to lie to you and tell you they are all based out of New Jersey, until you inform them the previous rep already told you they were located in India.

    BUYER’s BEWARE…..I have already filed a complaint with my credit card company on this company and the BBB.

    I guess now I am just stuck with $86 worth of rags…..

    • Emilee says:

      Don’t buy the Ahh Bra either…. I bought one today and it did absolutely nothing. No different than wearing a tank top.

  374. Lopo says:

    Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts. I had been considering the purchase but I will definitely avoid Genie bras (based on your helpful comments.) While I recognize that a small group of posters indicated they were happy with their purchase, overall I feel that I’d fit in the larger group of dissatisfied folks. The defining part for me: terrible customer service! I try to avoid doing business with any company that does not provide decent service.

  375. tanya says:

    I just received my Genie Bras today, I ordered them 10 weeks ago. Just like everyone else has said no packing label was sent and I was shocked by how flimsy they looked. Not one to discourage easily I tried it on and wore one for 8 hours before making my up my mind that like another reviewer said, that it is nothing more than a glorified sports bra. I am unhappy with the fit in the sense that it feels to tight, no spillage and support OK, but no separation either. Now in order to get the right size when ordering I wear a size 8 shirt but measure 35 around and the website said when in between sizes as I appeared to be to go with the smaller one.

    I think if I were a c cup instead of a d cup it would have worked, perhaps that is the trick that they work better for more modest cup sizes. I to have the band rolling up though it doesn’t bother me and I am mostly comfortable aside from feeling a little compressed. I won”t bother trying to exchange after reading the postings on this site, instead I will wear these around the house, that way whether I am doing housework, playing with my preschooler, or working out at least I won”t have to worry about popping out of place like my other bras.

  376. Susie helner says:

    I felt like I had to add my review after reading all these terrible reviews. I ordered my bras with geniebraoffer.com. I received 6 bras for $59.99 total including shipping. They did take 6 weeks to arrive but I LOVE them,, I am a size 10/12 and 36c but I did order them in a XL/1x,, they fit perfect,, they are so comfortable, I have no back fat that I did have with the Ahh bra … the amount of padding is Just perfect for me,, I am so happy and like them much better than the Ahh Bra because the material is very giving and comfy … mine does not roll up on me, and no I do not work for the company, I am just a happy customer!!

  377. Mindy says:

    I did not like the genie bra. First it took 9 weeks to receive it in the mail. Then I tried it on and it looked really bad. I need a bra that really shapes and this one definitely does not. It has OK support but is basically a sports bra. So unless you have perfectly formed perky breasts, this product is not for you.

  378. McCay says:

    Buyer Beware. The bras do not support you if you are fuller figure. Also, the 60 day money back guarantee only applies to the bras and not the shipping. I ordered extra bras for my sister and paid the shipping for 3 sets plus the one sets I bought. My order cost $151.00. I returned the bras since they did not support and asked for a refund. They refunded only $99.00 and kept over $50.00 for shipping costs. So, I have nothing to show except a $51.00 charge for nothing.

    I think that is really where they make their money. So, before you get into the buy one get one free, just remember me and the cost of the free was really $51.00 shipping.

    • SBS says:

      Ma’am I work for USPS, and let me tell you, I understand if you weren’t happy with your purchased and I do apologize for that, however in the company’s defense (Tristar I think are the creator), they DO NOT receive the shipping and handling, that goes to the USPS or UPS or FedEx the company ONLY receives the purchase price so unfortunately for you and many other folks on here, they are only able to refund the purchase price, if you want a refund for your shipping you are going to have to take that up with your local post office, not the company, how can someone refund money that they never got in the first place? UH DUHHHH! Your an adult I thought you would realize that! Oh and BTW, if the bra doesn’t fit, well a simple resolution is to GET A DIFFERENT SIZE DUH! Just like with anything you would wear!! I don’t work for the company nor have I ever purchased anything from there but I was considering it, and I always do my homework before I go to purchase anything from an infomercial (I could purchase in a store however nothing else is offered that’s why sometimes once in a fine blue moon I like to order from the television and have a pleasant conversation with the sales rep). So I stumbled across this site and read all the comments on the genie bra, I still might purchase but I will toughen my mind before I call so I don’t get “sold” on something I don’t want/need (unless of course it intrigues my interest!)

      • Sarah says:

        Considering other posters have mentioned that the actual shipping charges on the package have been closer to $3, I feel like the company IS making money off of “shipping.” But I for one appreciate your unnecessary attitude toward someone who wrote their opinion in a review…

      • DME says:

        Boy, that was helpful. The person talks about being overcharged for shipping (50 bucks? Are you kidding me?) and getting a lousy bra. And all you can do is suggest they send it back and shell out money for more lousy bras in another size? DUH right back at you! And the idea that someone should ask for shipping costs back from UPS or FedEx? Are you being deliberately obtuse? UPS or FedEx did their job. They shipped. Why would they ever give money back for that, and why would you ask them to? You ask for shipping costs back from the company that gypped you — the company that charged you an arm and a leg for shipping a defective product! Not UPS, who did their job. To quote you, “Your an adult I thought you would realize that!” (All spelling mistakes yours.) Are you sure you “don’t work for the company”? Because you’re going to an awful lot of trouble to insult strangers over their complaints about this bra.

        Seriously, I can’t believe you work for USPS. I can just imagine someone making a complaint to them instead of Genie Bra:
        “Could you give me my money back?”
        “Why?”
        “Well, it’s a lousy bra and they overcharged me for shipping.”
        “Why aren’t you demanding money back from them? We’re not the ones who sent you a lousy bra and overcharged you for shipping.”
        “Because an idiot on the Internet told me to.”

      • Wow says:

        Wow SBS, now I know whose losing my mail. If you work for USPS you have NO idea where the shipping AND handling charges are going unless you’re working for the company setting the prices.

      • Wow aren't you special says:

        You most certainly don’t work for USPS because if you did you would know that the shipping and handling are two separate charges. The USPS charges by weight idiot and 6 flimsy bras don’t cost $12.99/3 to ship moron. How dare you get on someones case the way you did. You’re obviously part of the Genie bra company. False advertisement is a crime jerk and these people should be getting a full refund with there shipping and handling back at the companies expense for knowingly selling them garbage. Shut up and go back to Genie bra and continue ripping people off. It’s only a matter of time and enough complaints before the Attorney General comes after the company. My suggestion to all you ladies call the NJ Attorney Generals office and find out the procedure on how to file a formal complaint against the company, enough people call with the same complaints they will bring forth a lawsuit on a State level. Good luck to all the ladies out there getting ripped off, I’m glad I found this page of reviews before ordering.

    • Curious says:

      Was that for shipping and HANDLING? That’s where they get you. The handling. The shipping company gets the shipping money, the rest of the overinflated price is for handling, which the seller gets.

  379. Louise says:

    SUPPORT!!! I don’t think so! It is a deluxe & expensive sports bra. It is comfortable but no support what so ever. Money back guaranteed! It is not even worth it after you paid all the shipping & handling. Canada BEWARE! … They charge you an extra $12 for shipping to Canada, BUT when it arrived it cost me ANOTHER $31.78 COD!So after paying $69.76 of shipping & handling (initial shipping $25.98 + extra for Canada $12 + COD $31.78), returning is not even an option. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

    • Nadine Kaina says:

      Customer Status Inquiry about my order that I sent back mid June. I ordered 6, sent back 5, kept one. It was signed for at your company in CT. Not happy about the support for me.I phoned was told would have refund. Not yet received. # 376063002887. Was charged $97.91 May 25,2011.

      Tried phoning many times, always busy. Please submit refund. Thanks. Nadine Kaina

  380. Rose says:

    I am a 60 year old size 40 C but I do stay active.

    I have received so many compliments on my blouses (that I have had a long time) since switching to the Genie Bra. Over the years my breasts have migrated a bit from the front to under my arms. And my nipples have always stood out and prevented me from wearing thin sweaters or silk tops.

    The genie bra moves my breast back in front and the cups are snug enough that nipples are not an issue with the pad inserts.

    Most important is the absorptive fabric in the band. I live in Houston and we melt every day. The Genie bra wicks away moisture and is so comfortable I don’t even feel it.

    My 80 year old mother tried mine today and liked it (but too small). Just submitted purchase for her. She is 40DD. It wicked away the moisture and she said it was very comfortable. I forget it is there, unlike any underwire bras.

    The Genie bra may not be for everyone, but it is definitely for me.

    • Akua says:

      Rose, let us know how your mother’s bras fit when she gets them.

      I am supposing I made a mistake, but, oh, well, not much I can do about it now. I’ll see when they come. I’ve never ordered from an infomercial, probably won’t again, but I figured, $14.33/bra, would be about what I normally pay for a bra that doesn’t fit well. Of course, I don’t usually buy six at one time. Anyway, maybe it will work for a cami. I have the problem of all the sleeveless tops being too large and my bras showing. Not a pretty sight. ha. And if sending them back is such a hassle, I suppose I could wear them to bed. ha. Could be interesting. Who knows, maybe my hubby will say, “What, no shorts and T? Nice.” Smooch.

      Then I see the ladies who said the size was too small. So maybe we need to order 1 size larger. hmm. idk.

      Sorry most of you have had such bad luck.

  381. Magan says:

    The Genie Bra is the Worst Product EVER!! I really think Tristar should be sued! I bought bras to fit me which lets just say were Large and they fit my 13 year old daughter which is a small or extra small size!! How ridiculous!! And then you try to call customer services and get given 4 different numbers to call only for them to hang up on you!! WTH!!! PLEASE SAVE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ——— DON’T BUY GENIE BRAS!!

  382. Kitty says:

    Well, like most here I was in shock when I opened the package and saw those bras…if you can call them that. I call them more a training bra for a toddler….anyway, I to didn’t have anything in the bag other than the bras. No receipt, no phone numbers, nothing but a flyer to buy some more! I called that number and of course, its a recording and a 1 for this, 2 for that and so on and none for returns or refunds. There is no way even a 5x would be big enough…, they are just that small. Well, I filed with the Better Business Bureau from there where the company is from and now I will see if I get a response from them.

    • Lynne Hoyt says:

      Dear Kitty,

      First of all, thank you for posting your experience; I was considering ordering the bras and decided to do some research beforehand. I’m so glad I did! I would like to suggest you contact your state Attorney General’s office regarding your complaint; they pack a bigger punch than the Better Business Bureau and when a business is contacted/investigated by an attorney general’s office, they have to respond. They don’t have to cooperate, respond or do anything with/for the Better Business Bureau. If everyone here who has had a bad experience with this company reported it to their State Attorney General, the company would be in trouble fast. Go get ‘em!

  383. Jan says:

    I too appreciate the honest and influential reviews. Finding the right bra is a constant and time-consuming challenge, especially for some of us “curvier” ladies – and I’m always searching for the ultra-comfort solution. I’m an F size, and as a Brit whose lived overseas for many, many years, I have consistently relied on a company called Bravissimo, based in England. I’ve purchased from them online and in-store for more than 15 years now – from Japan, Hong Kong, the UK and the US). I have absolutely NO connection whatsoever with Bravissimo, but I thought some of you ladies may find their site interesting – even if only to source a look and manufacturer that you like and which you then can then probably source from some mainstream retailer in the US (www.bravissimo.com).

  384. Loralee Merrifield says:

    Seriously….what a horrible bra!!! I feel like I’ve been outsmarted…but really, why would I believe any claim that a B cup and a D cup person could wear the same bra!! It’s horrible!!

    I received my bras on Thursday, wore one on Friday…seemed OK, but super wide in the front…definitely not cleavage enhancing!! Half way thru my work day I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror….it appeared that I didn’t have a bra on, at all….total sag, and…worst of all…those stupid pads that they have in the bra had moved around….how embarrassing!!! I didn’t have time to come home and change, I felt horrible all afternoon!!

    This product is NOT what is advertised!!! NOT!!! Don’t be fooled…I wasted my money!!

  385. Jane Kodack says:

    I do not like bras in general, especially after surgery, twice, for breast cancer. I have professionally measured bras since then. The Genie bras are the most comfortable bras I have EVER worn. Yes, the band rolls, but unlike others I have had that did the same thing, these don’t hurt when they roll. I was asked if I wanted the pad insert and I opted for them Ladies, you can remove them if you don’t like them! On the other hand, they do avoid “headlights.” They are not perfect, but I hope I never have to wear any other bra again.

  386. glori says:

    After a very long wait, my Genie Bras finally arrived. I couldn’t wait to try one on. No more pokey wires. What a HUGE disappointment!!

    I wear a 38DDD and there was absolutely NO support. I will be returning the bras!

  387. Shoezy says:

    Aside from the Aluma Wallet, these bras are the second worst rip off ever! Don’t waste your money. They sell better products for half the cost at Walmart and Target. They are flimsy, the band rolls, and there is NO support. There is no extra ribbing or support on the sides or underside to provide lift and support. It’s all just false advertising. Wish I hadn’t ordered them.

  388. Kathy Malaspina says:

    I bought 6 of these worthless pieces of fabric that cost me almost $90. They DO NOT FIT everyone. I bought for my large shirt size…they say the cups sizes will fit anyone. I am a double D and they do not fit. They do not lift or separate as advertised. They have these pieces of rubber foam that are inserted inside the bra cups…I tried wearing them with them, then pulled them out to try them without. These bras are no better then what you can buy at the local Walmart in the sports bra section. Matter of fact they are not as good as those. They may fit women with small cup sizes but they are not what they advertise. It also took 2 months to get them which was another turn off. So my advise learn from my mistake…do not waste your hard earned tax dollars on these. Let me add this the fabric is HOT and you will sweat your self to death wearing them. They do not breathe.

  389. Lou Lambeth says:

    I’m so glad I ordered my Genie Bras several weeks prior to my auto accident. My body took quite a shock and I cringed at the thought of having to wear a bra. Fortunately my Genie Bras arrived and I am so please with the fit. I wore a 40DD bra. It’s as advertised with the exception of it ‘rolling up’ in the front. My credit card wasn’t billed until the items shipped. I was charged $85.97 which included shipping. I have the support I need and my clothes fit so much better. And, I do not work for Genie Bra or any of their affiliates. I’m just a very happy customer!

    • Jean says:

      Thank-you for the information about the Genie Bras (everyone). My sister and I was going to order some of the bras, but I decided to Google them and see if any comments were posted about them. WOW! I am so glad that I read the comments first. Please be assured that we will not be ordering any GENIE BRAS – EVER!!

  390. Angela says:

    Product is not “the wonder” that the TV ad claims it to be. First when I opened it, I noticed it had pads in the cup, which moved around and would leave a line under a snug, thin sweater. Second, there was a faint stain on the white bra, as if it had been stepped on a dusty floor. Third, when I put it on, it immediately dug into my shoulders, offered little support, did not cup my breasts correctly, and the padding in the cups bunched up right away. I am returning the product for a complete refund. Wish I could get my return shipping refunded as well. Just go to Walmart and buy a sports bra, I am considering contacting Better Business Bureau.

  391. Joan says:

    I don’t know if this will work, but I called my bank to get the charge off my debit card. I felt so ashamed to admit I’d been ripped off. I called Tri-Star about the bras not being the correct type. Someone with an accent so thick I couldn’t understand began to read a script. I asked for a supervisor who’s accent wasn’t as bad. She said she would exchange the products if I returned the bras within 30 days. I told her there was no invoice in the package and no form to make a return. She said she would email a shipping label with a confirmation number. No email came.

    They have my email address, my debit card number, and everything else- address, and possibly my checking acct #. After I first ordered the bras on the web site, when I clicked “enter,” Tri-star sent a Trojan generic downloader which Norton Security caught and removed. Not long after that, I received an email with a zipper file attached. It was massed mailed to other email addresses and was obviously a phishing ploy. I deleted that. Now, I’ll have to cancel an email account I’ve had forever. :-(

    I called my bank. They’re issuing a new debit card to me and have blocked my old one, which means I’ll have to contact all my legitimate accounts to get it changed. They also suggested some other options for online shopping.

    All this because I had a weak moment and let Tri-Star sucker me into this transaction. The quality of the bras are inferior, and I fear I’ll never get my money back. I’m also concerned about Tri-Star making more money by selling my info to third party vendors or making sneaky “additional charges” to my card. I feel like an idiot for not checking web sites like this one before buying. Now, I have a lot of work to do to prevent any possible identity theft.

  392. Michelle says:

    DO NOT ORDER if C cup or bigger. Cup sizes extremely small. Size 3X rolls on person size 1X – lots of spillage!!! 3X cups do not fit 1X person. I had even measured according to recommended inch size to ensure there wouldn’t be confusion with various shirt sizes used by different manufacturers. Wish I had read reviews before ordering. Complete rip off to buy “pads” to prevent nipples showing through. Pads do not even cover B cup. Not for added lift either. It appears like you stuck a wad of Kleenex in the middle of your bra without trying to shape or smooth anything out. Definitely not worth the wait either. The worst bra I ever purchased fit better than this bra.

  393. JLo1974 says:

    I wish I had read Genie Bra reviews prior to purchasing. I thought how great it would be to have a comfortable bra with support. BUT if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. The bra is not supportive at all, and the band is not as wide as advertised. The website states to select your size based on the clothing you wear. Not true. I wear a XL in most shirts, so I purchased the XL/1XL size. When I tried on the bra, there was spillage and rolls that I don’t normally have with other bras (not what the infomercial claims). As for the XL size, my 10 year old daughter was able to wear the bra (it was only slightly big on her). She normally wears a S in juniors or XL in girls. Don’t bother wasting your time and money! The bra is not what they claim it to be…

  394. Lynne says:

    Genie Bra has tiny cups and larger sizes just give you a big loose back and loose long straps. No support whatsoever. The cups didn’t even cover my nipple area and I ordered a size larger than my shirt size. The order-taker assured me it would fit. Lie!! I even tried wearing 2genies at once-still no coverage of breasts or any support. Out of the approx.$120 for my order, returning all the bras they only refund approx. $80! Yes, only about $80 of it because the rest is Shipping and HANDLING. What a rip-off and they steal your money to boot! I also had to pay for return shipping! Don’t buy the Genie bra-it’s a huge waste of money you can’t even get refunded.

  395. Anne says:

    I ordered the Genie Bras and paid $85.95 for six bras. I thought you buy three for $29.95 and get thee free. Do not understand why they cost so much. I received them a month later and so far feel they are okay. When I contacted the company to order, I sat for twenty minutes saying no to all of the other offers and finally said I am about to cancel the whole order if you do not stop asking me this stuff. Today, I found a $24.95 charge on my bank statement, which I have no idea what it is to SEM Value Plus. I am certain that the person from Genie Bra enrolled me in something. Now how do I get my money back and cancel this?

  396. Robin says:

    I am so confused! I also waited more than 6 weeks for my order, and when I got my bras they seemed flimsier than expected, but, they were comfy, and I liked them well enough. My sister ordered hers several weeks after mine, but before mine arrived….she got hers just after mine arrived, but, they are NOT the same!?? Hers have padding like many others I have seen in other reviews here…mine DO NOT and we ordered the exact same thing! WTH! I need the extra shaping…she probably could have lived without it…I am calling tomorrow and finding out why I was gypped ..

  397. j. says:

    My Genie Bras arrived today and I was eager to open the package to see if I would be as disappointed as I expected to be after reading the reviews (unfortunately not before I placed the order). The verdict: I don’t feel ripped off, but I agree that the product does not stand up to the claims. I wear a 38B and am 5’3″ to give you an idea of my stature. The support is pretty good, better than some of the thicker shelf-bra camisoles I have. On the downside, I’m not pleased with how much nipple show-through there is–which very misleading when you compare with what’s shown on the infomercial. My other complaint is that the bottom does roll. I’m sure if you’re thin, you wouldn’t have that problem. And the other downside, is while you might have less bra roll on your back, if you’re thick at all through your chest, then the rolls on the side just sort of ooze out giving you a really odd front view. My expectations were pretty low after reading the reviews, so maybe that’s why I’m not as disappointed. The cost ended up being about $15 for each bra and I’m pretty sure I’ll get use out of them, especially during the winter when you wear layers and/or heavy sweaters. One positive thing is the bras don’t smash you down as much as a sports bra and I think their construction, although minimal, doesn’t give you a mono-boob either.

  398. Amy says:

    They totally lied to me. Worst purchase ever. Is not supportive as claimed. Tried to return they would not refund my shipping and handling $26.00!! Will never buy from TRISTAR again and will tell family and friends not to buy Genie Bra, worst bra ever. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND TIME!!

  399. Lana Hardeman says:

    I received my Genie Bras about a month after I ordered them. I am very dissatisfied with them. I wear a size 14 and 16 and ordered the x-large, 1X size – they were too small.The bottom of the bra cuts into my chest and rolls up which makes the pressure twice as bad. They say you have to get authorization to return it but when I called for authorization, I kept getting a message that the lines were too busy to answer a call. In addition, they charged me $25 shipping and handling. The package would not have cost over 3-4 dollars to mail. If I ever do get in contact with them, I expect they will tell me I have to pay the shipping back as well. What a rip off! Lana

  400. Melissa says:

    To all the people complaining about the hold time to reach customer service…..while you are on hold a recording comes on to tell you that you can press 2 and enter your phone number for a rep to call you back.

    They call you hack in about the same amount of time that you would have sat in hold. If your bra is smashing you, then you got the wrong size. True that they’re not as supportive as an undesired, I’m a 36DD!!

    But they’re not that bad, I think some people have nothing better to do than complain that they were hung with a new rope so to speak. Dint pay full price, negotiate and get a better price.

  401. Melissa says:

    I ordered on May 23rd and I had my bras on June 22nd. I was very surprised since they told me it might take longer plus I had read some of the reviews on this site. Anyhow, I paid $39.99 plus $9.99 s/h fir the first 3 bras, and an additional $9.99 for the 2nd set of 3. I am a size 36DD so I was kinda scared but yet wanted to try these bras. I ordered a size large and they fit well. They do roll up under the breast, commercial says they don’t…….and they are not as supportive as my underwire, but they do support enough and are extremely comfortable! I hate wearing a bra at home, but now I can because these are quite comfortable, even though the band rolls. I called genie bra and mentioned that they roll, and are not as advertised (they will roll unless you are stick thin with flat abs), I asked for a discount on the price if u keep them instead of returning (if you return them, you still pay the s/h), the very nice cust service rep gave me a $12.99 credit on my credit card. So for 6 bras I paid $46.98 which is $7.83 per bra, not too bad. Not to mention, not sure why everyone else has had a bad time with customer service but the lady I talked to was very nice. I didn’t sit in hold forever, I was able to press 2 while in hold to receive a call back & entered my phone # and she called me back within 10-14 minutes!

    Overall good experience, not completely as advertised and certainly no miracle, but for the price I paid? I am satisfied.

  402. Sandy says:

    I sure wished I had read all the comments before trying to order my genie bra. I spent 1/2 hr. on the phone with them, saying no to every offer from extra bras to hair dryers, curling iron, magazines, and then to be transferred to free wine tour trip, which I stated very loudly, NO NO NO, I just wanted to try the bra as advertised. I have not rec’d a confirmation # thru my e mail which this lady stated I would, Now I need to cancel my credit card…darn.

  403. JJAismy#1 says:

    It took my Genie Bra order 7 weeks to arrive, too, and I am very disappointed. These bras do feel good to me, but they have no support and smash my breasts flat under my arms. I won’t bother trying for a refund, because I already experienced their delightful customer service when I called to ask “what the Heck” when I hadn’t received my order after 6 weeks. So I’ll give some away to younger, less gravity inclined friends, and bite the bullet…..never to recommend this bra to anyone!

    • Shoegirl says:

      I’m so glad I read these reviews. I was tempted by the infomercial, then today I got an email from them with an additional $20 off offer. I am not going to bother. There are several brands of bras (Barely There and some others) that have a similar “easy fit” feature where you choose your band size and the cups are supposed to stretch to custom fit. When I lose a few pounds I will go to the department store and try some of those on so I know what I’m getting up front. No Genie Bras for me!
