AMAZING! I think I may have found my true love of bras! Very comfortable, reduces size and gives the girls a natural shape while providing good support. I'm between a 32 and 34 and this band requires the tightest hook so I may need to replace sooner than I'd like but based on how comfortable this is, I won't mind. My biggest gripe with bras is they tend to take up a lot of vertical space on my short frame and this one does not. cj from Seattle

I have been wearing Simone Perele bras for years, but this is the first time I've bought a 'minimizer'. I bought it because I have a few button-up shirts that can strain if my breasts are held too high or I wear a lined bra. And I was quite disappointed in this one, especially since I cannot return it. Apparently when you buy a minimizer bra you are supposed to buy a smaller cup size, because the 32E, which fits me perfectly in Simone Perele lace bras, is just huge. Anne from Philadelphia, PA

L-O-V-E this bra. So comfortable to wear even after a long work day. Cups are a *tad* too small but not to the point of being noticeable (I might order up next time). Criticism of strap slippage are valid. But, I feel that all and all this bra is very supportive and very attractive. I will order again! Happy Purchaser from Athens

I love Simone Perele bras. I think they are the perfect blend of support and comfort. I had a different style previously (not the minimizer), which I liked a lot. This one is similar, but a bit more structured and definitely does minimize. One note is that this brand uses European sizes - I'm typically a D cup in U.S. brands, and I got the F in this bra because that is the size I had in the other style. It's a little large on me in this style - I probably could have gone with the E, but tightening the straps helped. It is comfortable enough to wear every day and is very supportive.

I had hoped the minimizer would be a full cup bra. It gives me an open cleavage and does not cover my entire breast.

Simone Perele Response: May we suggest that you try Simone Perele Nila Minimizer Bra 179381. We would also suggest that you try the new tool available at HerRoom, which is the Universal Cup Size tool that will better help you find your size in all brands. Polly from Richfield, Utah USA

Very comfortable and well fitting in the cup. The band is a bit "big", so I gave this a 4 instead of a 5. Does a reasonably good job of minimization. Patty from San Jose CA USA

This is a go to bra when major immobilization is not necessary, and you prefer to wear knits. I discovered that - I went down a band size based on a little weight loss - my 38 F the bad seemed too big; maybe I should've gone up to a G at the same time, ( or lost more weight, or stayed with the 38 F and made darts in the banding ) as you would think I was wearing a push-up bra - but only on my right (larger) side. I will try it on one more time, under clothing, then decide if I should exchange it. It's just a caution to would be buyers about the balancing of band and cup sizes. I think this gives bigger busted women the most natural look of any bra. Cgeryl from Yorktown Hts, NY

I have 3 of these - I needed to size down from a 38 F to 36 F recently. The first one I had was a purchase in Germany - having lost my bras en-route. It was a great find. I have 2 bra "groups" - the heavy duty bridge supports - workaday, exercise ones that minimize, allow for good posture and and keep me from bouncing. the other - smooth knit-safe bras with a natural look, like this one. This - to me - just looks good, with smooth fabric, decorations that are not see through, and a nice fit. The bra never pokes or feels uncomfortable. True, the straps are very wide set - that may be the sole problem I have. It does not minimize bounce, and doesn't exactly minimize the cup size, so much as providing a nice curve. Its a go to bra - one of two styles in my drawers that gets used -other than for exercise -whenever I am wearing a knit top. That's almost always. Ms G from Yorktown Hts, NY

I've been a Wacoal fan for years. But having to go up 2 band sizes in the past year, I thought I'd give the Perele a try just to mix it up. Well my order came in today 2 Wacoals and 1 S. Perele. Was a bit apprehensive that this new bra wouldn't fit. Well, it fits like a dream and I am seriously considering purchasing this bra in the French roast color as my old 38c Wacoal is a mite to tight. So glad I took a chance on this mfg. as I love my new Perele. llmartz from Long Beach, CA

Doesn't look like a minimizer bra. Submitted from TheUndies.com

rating Size: 32E

Fit: E (in this brand, there is no DD) cup is larger than a DD, but if you use petals or some padding, those will help. The circumference is true to size. Quality: Too soon to tell Drawbacks: No lining; what's up with these minimizer sizes not offering lining? We need it just as much as those with smaller cups! Separates, but doesn't so much lift Advantages: Comes in white, and is available in the harder-to-find sizes Linda

I was very disappointed with this bra. I bought two styles of Simone Perele minimizer bras and had the same problem with both. Although I have had very good luck with this brand before, specifically the lace and demi-cup styles, and those fit perfectly, the minimizers did not. The cups were way too big and I don't see how that could work as a minimizer if they are wrinkled and loose. I have returned and ordered a smaller cup size; will hope those work because the bras do look nice and appear to be of the usual good quality for this brand.

Simone Perele Response: We are so pleased that you had a perfect fit experience with the Simone Perele Demi Cup Style. Please note that minimizers are designed with a deep cup to provide substantial coverage and have the benefit of providing the appearance of “minimizing” the breast a full cup size. We are confident you will find another perfect fit experience with our Demi shaped 3D Molded Cups; Andora 131343 , Romance 115343 , Caressence 12J343 . Anne from Philadelphia, PA

I usually wear the Chantelle minimizer, but thought I'd try something different. The Andora bra has more support and better lift for large breasts, but the straps are too wide-set and will not stay on my shoulders. Returned and reordered Chantelle. 8/24/11 sC Tommy (pending) 8 from Portland, Oregon

Very nice look under knits for full breasted ladies like myself. Like other Simone Perele's, it does not give the out bulging look common in other bras not able to support larger breasts. And it is feminine! Submitted from TheUndies.com

Cups were very small for 34G even though it was a minimizer. It is difficult to order the same size from brand to brand, as they are all so different. I returned and tried something else.

Simone Perele Response: European brands will fit slightly tighter than an American or U.K. brand, for which bands tend to run bigger. We would recommend to go down one band size and up one cup size for an optimal fit in a Full Cup or Minimizer style, such as theNila Minimizer 179381 or Andora 3D bra in a 32H. dorothy

I love this bra. I have a drawer full of bras that have disappointed me, but not this one. Receipt of order was very prompt. I am still waiting after a month from another site for receipt of my order, with shipping costs 3 times that of your site. I will be ordering this bra again and only from your site. Kathy
