I've been wearing this style for years in ivory and black. I love the new straps. The nude color, which I could never find in stores, works much better under white tops than the ivory. For the women having issues with the wires sticking up in front, just slide the wires back (toward the under arm) prior to putting the bra on and your problem is solved. The service was great and I'll be ordering from HerRoom in the future. Thanks! Renee from Minnesota

I wear a 32D in my other Wacoal bras but I do not see that 32D is an option on this bra. What size should I get?

HerRoom Response: Unfortunately, this bra does not come in 32 band sizes. The Wacoal 85154 minimizer does come in your size and is Wacoal's best selling minimizer. Meee

Excellent garment, I thought that the cost would be discounted from department stores as other items I have purchased from this site in the past. Still would purchase in future, though Becky from Lynden, Wa

I keep coming back to this very feminine style. I like my girls "high and tight", and this is one of the few bras I have found to do that comfortably. Val from Mason MI

I've worn this bra for several years and love the fit, but I could never find it in Nude in department stores. Very pleased to also discover that Wacoal has improved the straps..they are much sturdier. Love it, thank you! Karen from Sterling Height/MI/USA

The center wires don't come anywhere near my sternum, and the center part is too high by several inches. From the photo, I had no idea that the bra is so high in the center. If I keep my back as stiff as a poker all the time, perhaps the center wires wouldn't protrude, but that is hardly realistic. With any movement at all, the wires protrude in the front (very ugly) and, based on my experience, with similar bras, would ruin sweaters and other fabrics by rubbing in that spot. The bra is comfortable, pretty and, if I stand like a store manniquin, looks fine under my clothes. The bra may be OK for people taller than 5'4". I'm sending it back.

HerRoom Response: Your symptom is a sure sign that your cups size is too small. You need to go up a cup size. Also, minimizers are the only bras where the center does not have to touch the sternum. However, your situation is one where the cups are too small. Lynne from Washington, DC

Wacoal has improved the straps on this bra. They are now wider and no longer have a seam. They are much more comfortable. Great fitting. Would recommend. Katie from Ohio

for the price i would have expected it to last a little longer than 6 months before coming apart - the material from one of the straps is beginning to separate. the fit also was also small, i measure a 37 around, ordered a 38 and somehow it was still tight. otherwise, this is better than most bras, but not 68 dollars great.

HerRoom Response:If you measure 37 under your bust. At the very least you need to try a 40 band size. sb from Kansas

I own several of these bras and I still go back to it every time. This is the best everyday bra for my size. I have not found one better! Michelle

Really minimized but to some extent flattens, removing some shape. Still glad I purchased. Offers a lot of support in comparison to other bras. Geri from KY

I have tried practically every bra out there and this is the only one I can wear. I give it 5 stars because I don't want it to be discontinued. I am very narrow across my chest and the cups on this bra are close enough together to fit properly but still offer separation. This bra gives the lift I need to actually see my waistline. Other bras don't give that and I just look 10 lbs. heavier. This bra is comfortable and supportive for large, heavy breasts that have seen better days. LOL My only disappointment is it shows under clingy knits and t-shirts a bit. It's also very high on the chest and the edges of the lace show above some of my necklines. I always have to wear a cami or extra t-shirt. Oh well... maybe clothing designers will get smarter and realize that not everyone is built like a super model. Majick

I've bought other Wacoal bras of this same size which fit perfectly. The way this one fits me provides absolutely no minimizing effect whatsoever. Lynda from New York

Found this bra to be very comfortable, in fact one of the most comfortable bras I have owned. I liked it very much after just wearing it a few hours. Judy from Logansport, In., U.S.

Because of my size, I have trouble finding a bra which fits well and is comfortable. HerRoom is where I have been getting my bras for a few years and where I will continue to purchase undergarments. Lana from San Jose, CA USA

I like the construction which gives lift. However, in judgng the size to purchase according to the size chart, I had some difficulty. I think my size is closer to 46G as the band was too tight. I do not like the bra's stays as the sides came up too close to the armpits. If I lower the straps, I don't get the lift I need. Sally from Texas

I bought this minimizer to wear with some slim-fitting, button-up blouses. I loved the way the cups fit--the center gore rests against my breastbone and there is no cleavage (which is an unwanted look at work). However, the band seems to run big in this style. Even on the last rung of hooks the band was not fitted enough. I could use a 32D but Wacoal doesn't make that size. I have the Slimline Seamless minimizer and its band is fitted enough so I'll stick with it. Adrienne from Dallas, TX

I bought 2 of this bra, am returning the one I did not wear. THe underwires come up to high in the center. Wacoal was my preferred minimizer, but the one I like has been discontinued. THis one was a disappointment. Kara from Houston,TX

This bra really holds me up! The wire at the very top wants to poke out just the tinest bit, but it not detectable in my clothes. I really like the comments pages on the bras - this helped me with shopping on line for a bra. I look for comments from ladies who are my size and it helps with determining which bra to order.

This is not for a full figured, heavy breasted woman. it is very nicely made and would be great for a young, firm woman who doesn't need a lot of support. I returned it. Loretta from Fayetteville PA USA
