~ Fit notes from Staci B - Founder & CEO ~
"The Shortee was created when I altered my Ultimate to make it shorter for days I didn't want or need tummy/muffin top control. We found less fabric in the front would eliminate the front from rolling up so we adjusted the front of this style to be very short but we kept the back longer to smooth more of the back bulge. It is best worn under any style top or dress that has a regular full coverage back. Great for all body types".
STYLE NOTE: The back of the Shortee may roll up on APPLE SHAPED women who carry more weight in their middle and less on their hips and legs. So for Apple Shaped women, stick with our longer styles
To properly measure your upper chest, stand in front of your mirror topless (with or without a bra) and with the tape measure high around the upper back and under your arms, pull the tape measure TIGHT above your breasts at the top of your cleavage.

After a mastectomy with reconstruction, I found it nearly impossible to find a bra that gave me both comfort and support until I purchased the Shortee. Thank you for creating such a great bra.
I LOVE this bra! I have gone through pregnancy and weight loss wearing this bra. I have had to buy it in several different sizes and all have been so comfortable. My only criticism is hat that I wish the underwire was longer/wider. In all sizes, it is a few inches shorter/narrower than the cup, so sometimes it will shift outward and I loss some inner cleavage support. But I will take that sometime-annoyance because it is so comfortable, supportive, and back slimming.
We are thrilled you love your Shortee bra. The reason there is a little bit of excess empty room at either end of the wire casing is so when you are putting it on and taking it off, the wire isn't hitting the edges and breaking through the stitching.
I am nearing 40 years old and I have never had a bra this comfortable. I actually stopped wearing regular bras and only wore sports bras 99% of the time because I disliked regular bras so much. I never found one that made me looks smooth and put together in form fitting shirts or a bra that wouldn't ride up and I would have to keep tugging back down into place etc. Don't hesitate. Get it. I am also a very tall tall woman at 6'2" and it still provides great back coverage with no tugging.
