Genie Bra: The Good, the Bad, and the Facts

Updated on June 11, 2015

"The Miracle, Best Ever, Genie Bra!"?

Infomercials claiming "The Miracle, Best Ever, Genie Bra!" have been airing on several TV networks, and this bra has caused quite an uproar among many women, some who actually do consider it the best bra ever, while others who say it's nothing less than a horrible scam on unsuspecting women everywhere.

Who's right? We went online to order this miracle, test it, and see what we think. Read on to see our review.

The Infomercial for the Genie Bra: True or Hype?

The infomercial begins with scenes of several women struggling with obviously misfitted bras. We are told that "you just know that most bras were invented by men," and we are then introduced to the show host, Jane Denoble, who looks pretty good in her blue dress (under which she proclaims to be wearing a Genie Bra). Ms. Denoble then introduces Stella Riches, a "fashion trend launcher" who tells us that the woven extra support comfort band eliminates band roll up. She also assures us that the everlast stretch fabric is intricately woven so that it moves with your body, provides support, and eliminates unsightly top bulge, underarm spillage, back fat, and concerns about ill-fitting cup sizes. They also tell us that if a woman wears a size small shirt, she'd wear a small Genie Bra (and a size medium shirt equals a medium Genie Bra, etc.).

Wow! this does sound like a miracle bra, and each of the various models sure do look great in their new bras. We're offered not three, but six bras for the price of three for just $59.99 + shipping.

So, after checking what few reviews we could find, we went online to order this miracle and met up with our first delay: The site didn't recognize our zip code... ugh. Okay, probably best to call them anyway, since want to accommodate 36DDD (E-girls), and though the infomercial continuously emphasized this custom-conforming bra is for women of all sizes, and showed a few 36/38DD girls, they did not specify any E-girls. Neither did they show an actual size chart on the broadcast, so maybe it would best to ask a real person about the size.

The representative was very nice and was fluent English-speaking. She said that size large would be perfect for the 36E girls, and on April 4th, we proceeded with the order, after which she made an un-refusable offer to sell us three of the lace-trimmed bras. She told us that our order should arrive within 2-3 weeks, and sent an order verification to our email.

And so we waited... and waited, and tracked, and waited, and then got nervous and checked the reviews again. OMG! After reading more recent reviews, a cloud of buyers remorse settled in like a dark storm cloud. Then on May 18th another email arrived, stating that the order had shipped.

Slow Shipping, Poor Sizing, and Extra Items on Invoice

Hmm... that's odd. $59.99 for pads? There was no mention of pads in the infomercial, though I saw reviews that remarked about pads; wonder what that's about?

Finally, after another 10 days the miracle Genie Bras finally arrived on 5/28. Am I wrong in thinking the pony express would have been faster? Am I wrong in thinking that for $31.97, shipping could have been faster than 10 days? Am I wrong in wondering why it took more than 7 weeks to toss 3 pre-packaged bra sets into another bag? Maybe I'm just paranoid after reading those horrible reviews just one day before the bras finally arrived.

​Skeptically, the package is opened, and inside the tyvek envelope are three separate sets of three bras, three each, in white, black, and nude, one set lace-trimmed. Then I pull out a rather nice-looking white bra that does look like the ones seen in the TV ad. Yep, there are little pads hidden within tiny pockets that open to the side of each cup, and again I wonder why these pads weren't mentioned in the ad, but they do seem to add shape.

Having taped the infomercials, we watch it again: Nope, no mention of any pads, and somehow, the bras don't look exactly the same, either. The straps and band appear wider in the infomercial, and these cups look small, but let's see if they can accommodate the girls. Immediately, the E-girls are struggling to find space within the cups, and the thin fabric finally explains the obvious reason for the pads: Whoa! Everything shows through, especially on the white bra, and yes, these little pads definitely add a lot of shape and now we're wondering if XL might have been a wiser choice, but no, the straps on this bra are a bit loose actually, so XL would be too big. Darn! We're also noting a slight uni-boob look going on — ugh!—and some underarm spillage too, but the back is smooth. Okay, let's put a shirt on....

Our Final Word on the Genie Bra

Well, not as bad as dreaded. Not uncomfortable (too much jiggle, though). We definitely won't be exercising, speed walking, or running in these bras! What to do, what to do? Let's put another bra on over the first one. Okay, this is better, but wait... take the pad out of the inner bra, and leave the pad inside of the outer bra, and now this looks and feels better. Pull the inner bra up in front a bit to avoid front and side spillover —it feels a bit tight, but it's still smooth in back. Wearing two Genie bras definitely provides more support.

​The bottom line: I think this just might be a "miracle bra" for up to 36D girls, maybe even the DDs, but there were no miracles here for the bigger girls. You'll need to wear two bras at once if you want any support. Worn alone and these are casual sleep bras only.

As far as the Genie Bra claims, on a scale of 1-10, here's the marks:

For comfort, it rates a 9.

For support, it rates a 3-4. Sorry, just not enough lift!

For style, it rates a 6/7. Not bad-looking, but lots of room for improvement.

        Does anyone know you are not supposed to put these bras on over your head? You step into them & pull them up! Also, if you looked around the site and read you would know that they have different bras that have different purposes (I.e. sports bra.) You can’t blame them because you purchased the wrong size, I’ve never had a problem with things not fitting me but I’ve always made sure I ordered the right size!

        I place an order by phone last week, still no email confirmation. I called and there was no record of my order. After reading the above review, I don't think I will reorder. Also, the people on the phone had very heavy accents, there was much noise in the background (both times) and I don't know if this is a company I can trust to have my credit card info on file.

        After I struggled to get the thing on, the band immediately rolled up. My boobs were smashed nearly flat in my XL Genie Bra (I am a 38C- size 14-16 shirt), according to sizing, I should have been able to wear a Large. I was so tired by the time I got this bra on, that I cut it off!! There is NO support. The sizing is totally wrong. I had spillage on the sides and back fat spillage. This bra, in my opinion, gets a negative 1. Worst Bra Ever!!!!

        I bought mine at Walmart. Double D here and sick of the underwire pain so thought I would try something that would be more comfortable. Sadly uniboob city. Doesn't really lift and separate but it is very comfortable. I bought the large and still a pretty tight fit. I will wear but won't buy more

        I purchased zip front bras on the Genie bra 60 days guarantee. The first two bras did not fit so I returned and exchanged them for a larger size. Those bras did not fit either so I returned the bras again for a full refund. They stated that they will refund your money within 2-3 days after return. No, they do not and they have not returned the money after a month. This is a extremely unethical and rip off company.

        Don't waste your time. The fit was poor two times. I sent both orders back and then they gave me a run around about giving a credit on my credit card. It is more trouble and aggravation dealing with them than it is worth.

        And, the bras do not fit well at all. At least the ones I bought did not.

        I was disappointed because their claim that the size of your top would fit the size of genie bra you should orsder was totally FALSE!

        I CALLED THEM ABOUT MY ISSUE and asked to get a truer size. They seemed to want to give me flack about it. Like sending me the RAM Envelope was such a hassle.

        I ordered a L, they sent me an XL that was so tight when I wore it that I had to find a fitting room to take it off after my event. It was like I needed a 2X. Money Wasted!

        I ordered 2 beige originals and 2 black origins. I got the beige and the next day got 2 lace trimmed black bras. The lace trimmed are horrible. The lace does not stretch so they are almost impossible to get on and off. I called customer service and was told they don't have nay of the originals left. NONE. Not in black, not in beige, not in blue, not in any color. I was then offered a $10 coupon for future purchase and I could just keep the lace bras. I said no, I want a complete refund with a mailing label so I don't have to pay shipping, and she said she would send it to my email but never did.

        What a rip off. There was a sale on three bra's, so we ordered three. Over a month and no bra. Call and am told that it showed they shipped, butt hey actually hadn't - what does that mean? So they say they will send out replacement. Replacement? You just said you never mailed out the first set. Three weeks later two bra's arrive. Uniboob in front. Straps are about 1" - 1 1/2" too long so not much in support. Is not smooth in back and the band rolls up. Called three more times to get the third bra that we paid for, and 6 months later it still has not arrived. We thought we could at least sell it on ebay.

        The bra is NOT easy to zip up and is very frustrating. When I do finally get it zipped up the zipper splits from bottom to top. If you can finally get the bra on and zipped it is comfortable. It does not hide the underarm flab at all. It is just a comfortable bra to wear when you are not wanting to impress any one...if you can get it zipped!!!!

        Not thrilled. Ordered these from a online catalog site and was hoping for something comfortable, supportive and soft with no underwire. Even though I'm a 44B (weird size I know) I really need some lift and shaped cups are usually too big for me. The shipping wasn't bad but when I got them and put them on I was disappointed. The first problem was how snug they were and that they do roll in the front. Having asthma, I don't need anything else constricting my ribcage. Second, they create a major uniboob and being "small" busted doesn't change or help that. I will probably wear these around the house and out just running errands but definitely not to work or church. Can't recommend.

        Poor customer service through the genie bra website. Wrong items are shipped and they expect you to pay shipping and handling (twice) to get the correct item. File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau of Connecticut under Tristar Products, inc. That is the only way we can band together and fight this company from ripping us off. It's not about the money since these are rather inexpensive items, but if we let them get away with stealing even a small amount from us, their unethical behavior will continue for the next customer. I filed my complaint this morning.

        Not seeing any comments regarding the issue I had. Just purchased a Genie Bra at my local Walmart. I currently wear an XL, so purchased the 1x bra. Got it home and decided to try it on. Zipped up fine and felt really comfortable ...but the moment I took a breath "POP" ! Zipper splits bottom to top. Struggle to move the slider down to the bottom, zip it up again and once more POP! .. Not sure if this is just a defective zipper, or something that happens quite commonly.

        Absolutely the best and most comfortable bra ever invented. I am a 34D and normally pay $35-40 for Bali or similar brand bras that only act as torture devices, with underwriters cutting in and horribly uncomfortable shoulder straps that scratch and cause indentations after wearing for a few hours. My Aunt bought several of the Genie bras on QVC and was immediately hooked. She sent me one to try, and I never tried it on and just put it in a drawer because I was not really impressed with the looks of it. It wasn't until a couple of days ago that I was asked how I liked it and felt guilty for not at least trying it on, so I pulled it out of the drawer and skeptically put it on and was absolutely amazed at how truly awesome this bra is. I haven't put a regular one since and probably won't in the future. This bra immediately conforms to your shape, there is absolutely zero back fat, it is totally seamless under clothes, provides great support, and is probably the most comfortable thing I have ever worn. I am astounded to hear a single negative comment about this remarkable bra. I just went on line and saw that Bed Bath and Beyond has them in packs of 2 in stock at only $14.99. With one of their $5 or 20% off coupons, that is the best bargain ever! They may not be flashy or a beautiful addition to your seductive lingerie collection, but if you have ever struggled with poorly fitting or uncomfortable bras in the past, the Genie bra is an absolute Godsend! One tip though regarding size....as I said, I am a 34 D, but the perfect size for me in this bra is 1x or CLOSE. Surprising, but best fit ever. I highly recommend!!

        Loved all the comments, & yes it is true, their version of a 'size chart' is bizarre! Maybe it was created with skeletons in mind... not for normal healthy women with 'boobs' who need support, easy to wear all day comfort, anytime of the year. Here in desert heat, a design that you have to 'climb into & pull up" (hum...you should know something is wrong at this point...) material that is nylon & spandex, under elastic that cuts into your ribcage, pushes your boobs together up under your throat & the rest of your surrounding flesh out over the sides, making it hard to put your arms down isn't my idea of a 'good fit' when a normal 38C girl is left panting for air after trying on a MilanaBra in 2x! Pant! HUff! Pant! Maybe I would do better in a 4X, Hey! wait a minute.. who's in charge here? All I want is a camibra that could be cotton/mix, wireless, & doesn't cost a 'arm & a leg' to look like my 'trophies' are covered not smothered & that it didn't escape from a dime store!

        Psst! Don't bother mail/Internet ordering, these overrated pieces of junk can be found at your local Walmart! So Ladies give you BoobCrusher's a ride out to where they belong.... the trash!

        The bra may be ok for women with small boobs, however I don't recommend it if you are a D Cup or larger. I wear a 38d and size 2x was too small. The size chart is definitely incorrect. According to the chart, my size is Large. I am going to return the bras.

        I loved the original genie bras which firmed me up - I want less rather than more. I ordered 3 more recently and was very disappointed that the current material is not as firm as before - sure it's comfortable, but they no longer fold me in as well as before. I'll have to start buying firmer sports bras at 3 times the price. Very sad!

I don't have to worry about the strips falling every 30 secs or the spillage. I'm starting to look for more products of this line because I'll replacing all my bras. The only thing is the width is not for using with everything. Next time I'll go to Walmart, I'll get one more box.

        I'm a 38B. Kinda a weird size. Big rib cage and not so big boobs. I bought this bra in a large. A large- I wear a small or medium shirt. And it is very tight around the bottom- uncomfortably so. And it flattens my boobs, even with the pads. I hate it. I'll use it as a sports bra, but honestly- my underwire padded push-up is more comfortable.

        Best Bra EVER!!

        I would always rip off my old bras in the early evening because of discomfort.

        I wear the genie bra all day and evening with NO discomfort at all.

        I am 36DD and 57 years old. I get plenty of support with the genie bra and I threw away the little pads because they are totally unnecessary. Smaller girls might want them for extra padding.

        The uniboob thing is okay with me because, when dressed, it gives the appearance of a reduced bust size which I prefer.

        I have thrown away all of my old bras.

        Thanks for the heads-up; I surely won't be buying into this boobie-miracle, as there's nothing I loathe more than the uniboob look (well, except for the Madonna cone-boob look...both are pretty hideous.)

        I've always been a big-chested girl, so finding an excellent bra is almost like finding Jesus (bikinis, even worse.) However, after losing weight (thank you, My Fitness Pal!!), I've seen my boobs shrink drastically. I'm still at a large D (or DD, depending on the bra brand), but I'm still not going to risk waiting weeks for a crappy product. Once again, thank you for the great review!!

        I ordered these about 6 months ago. I'm a 44DD. Was concerned with that issue. According to the infomercial and the person on the phone it was guaranteed to fit and change my life. I ordered 2 sets of 3. The 2nd set was free except for S&H. After about 4 weeks got the pkg. What a terrible joke this is. A big scam!!! Immediately called them. They agreed to refund my money less the shipping and I had to pay for return shipping. So it ended up costing me almost $40. Even if I were a smaller size these they would have offered no support and they where difficult to even try to get on your body. I should have checked the out more thoroughly. HUGE, HUGE RIP OFF!!! Good articile!

        All these bras are shown on young women, and/or pre pregnancy. The body shape just changes with time. It would be helpful if everyone commenting would include her size bra.

        Sounds like the take from this review is that the bras are comfortable but don't offer much support. I guess it depends what the woman is looking for, whether they like this bra or not.

        Check to make sure you purchased the right size. You might find that a smaller size won't roll up.

        I've been very pleased with my genie bra purchase. I'm actually shocked by all the negative reviews.

        Thanks so much for the very detailed revuew. I am a size 12 shirt and wear a 36ddd(e), and because I am too large fir Victirias Secret, I usually purchase bras at Lane Bryant due to the cup size - but my size is rarely available and never on the sale rack...my usual bra purchase is in multiples and rather expensive, so I very nearly purchased this product today. Thanks again for saving people like me from spending time and money needlessly.

        This is one of the worse purchases I have ever made. No support at all. The bra is really hard to get on. The bra rolls up. I almost pull a muscle each time I try putting one on. I strongly regret the purchase of these bra's.

        This is a great review, I almost bought some, but thought I would wait until someone else did before spending money. I won't be buying any after this.

        I am going to stay with a good sports bra, plenty of support there and at a cheaper cost too.

        Thanks

        Very comfortable, but you definitely nees the pads otherwise your boobs look like to flat pancakes in a sling.

        I dont see how this bra will make women who have a small B and non full looking boobs feel good about themselves. I just dont see how it will make the boobs look bigger or nicer if you have well.. flatter looking boobs after pregnancy!

        I admit these are comfortable but that’s because there is no support at all. I ordered three of these, tried one on and walked on the beach. I am a 38DD and I was flapping around all over the place. How can you even say they support the larger sizes, I get better support from my ex. These are flimsy and although mine were supposed to be padded they did not come with any padding and am not sure that would have made any difference. I need to know how to return. I was not satisfied with these at all.

        I have a positive comment - If you are less than a D cup you should at least try this bra. Buy a size larger than the chart suggests and get only 1 - on EBAY. If you get the right size for you = they are the best bra ever - the only drawback is that the nylon is not for 100 degree days - too hot!!

        Bought mine at Bed Bath & Beyond Store 9/15/2011. Came in a box of 2, a nude color and a black. I'm normally a 38C, so got the Large like the chart recommended. 2 for 19.99, but I took that Bed Bath & Beyond coupon for $5 off, so came out to 2/$15 with tax. Great price!

        The fit feels wonderful. Yes the band immediately rolls, but I don't care. I'm looking for comfort. Very slight side bulge, no back fat. Feels a bit like an exercise bra, and I can run and fast walk with good support. I had to take pads out because it felt like they pushed me backwards and hurt a bit. Don't need the pads. Weird thing is, when I washed them they have little fuzz balls all over them, "pillage". The bras seem to make me itch a bit. Still trying them out. $7.50 was a great price. Might get some for my sister for Christmas.

        My mom ordered some and they were too small for her, so I inherited them... nothing thrilling. For a smaller chested woman they do nothing for shape or support, and i totally had the uni-boob. I'll wear them around the house... but agreed, not worth the hype!

        Thanks to all for your comments. It's obvious that the genie bra is great for some, far from great for others. No one can deny that they are comfortable... and perhaps by now, they've improved on delivery time. Shipping fees are still exorbitant though.

        Myself and my husband (a man who likes looking at boobs - who would have thought) were watching the commercial for this "bra" the other night - and we both said pretty much at the same time "no way this going to work". I never buy bras online - just like I don't buy shoes online - these items should be fitted correctly, with the help on an expert. That's my take on it anyway. Thanks for writing this hub and saving some of us girls a bunch of money and time.

        Excellent hub, I was going to order this one, the infomercial was very well done and I thought perhaps this is the bra I have been waiting for. But after your investigation I will wait and see if they do an improvement and then perhaps reconsider. Thanks for the info, saved me from wasting my money.

        Thank you for this very helpful hub on the Genie bra! I was going to order it...I am a 42 DD and have been searching for the perfect bra for years! I almost ordered one...then I saw the Ahh bra at Walgreens...the Ahh bra has commercials that are almost identical to the Genie bra...same idea...just order your shirt size and no matter what size cup you are...the bra is supposed to fit and lift and separate...I bought the Ahh bra at Walgreens because you could buy one instead of a whole package and it was only $19.99 and no shipping and handling. It doesn't have pads...I do love it...but it doesn't deliver the support of an underwire bra like it claims...but it is really comfortable and I will probably order the package of three...interesting...will anyone really ever come up with something like this that REALLY DELIVERS?

        The genie bra is so complex. It looks uncomfortable and sticky. It is much better to buy bra in person to be sure of the material and the fit, and of course, of the fix price. Am glad you found a teeny-weeny humor in your situation.

        thanks so much for such in depth information. I saw this infomercial recently and considered buying the genie bra. I'm not interested in a uni-boob, so you've saved me and others alot of money, which in these economic times is much appreciated. I'm watching my 401K droop, don't need to watch my boobs droop too!!! Thanks

        Never purchase a bra without trying it on first. I have never had any luck with a bra looking like the perfectly formed model who is wearing it.

        I feel you were taken advantage of big time. Apparently the model on TV was wearing something different than what they were selling or she also "stuffed" her bra with something other than herself.

        Thanks for the informative Hub!

        Thanks so much! As another 36DDD lady, I was uncertain ordering, wondering whether it would be worth the money for my size.

        Now, I know it wouldn't be! I'm so pleased to have found a review I can relate to.

        Knowing about that slowwwww shipping makes a difference to me, too. If a company is going to charge that ridiculous amount for shipping, the least they could do is be speedy!

        Thank you, you just saved me some big bucks!

        Great information, and thanks for sharing! We have Infomercials for these bra's here in Sydney too. I thought they looked like you put it 'Casual sleep bra's' as for a larger bust they don't look like they have enough support, and I was wondering why the women wear more than one bra in the advertisements, now I know why! And how funny that they never mention the pads in the Infomercials! Really informative, look forward to reading more of your Hubs!
