I put this on chat but thought I may get a response here
These are half price and I am tempted to get a pack for my friend for Christmas
she is on the larger side and used to wear crop tops all the time because she finds bras uncomfortable
I persuaded her to go back to bras because her shape was so bad with the crop tops
Is the genie just another crop top or does it give a good shape?

I've tried the similar Belvia bra and it was hopeless; absolutely no support and seemed to be dragging the girls southwards. If she is generally big but has smallish boobs it may work for her, but if she has large ones I would save your money.

If she finds bras uncomfortable, she was almost certainly wearing the wrong size. Point her in the direction of the threads on here as to how a bra should fit/measure, and get a bra fitting at Bravissimo.
