Extremely comfortable and well fitting. I'm not overweight, but as an older woman with no longer tight flesh, I like the fact it doesn't pinch or overflow. Makes me look good. montana woman from Montana

I only wear this bra. It stays in place provided you are wearing the correct size. I recently lost some weight and it was necessary to purchase new bras in a size smaller. Betty from NY

Love this bra. Heavy chested and this holds me up which actually slims me down. Comfortable. Lynn

Thanks HerRoom. I keep coming back to your site even if once in a while you're a tiny bit more expensive because of your reviews, personal advice, photos, videos, and FAST refunds and exchanges. Mimi from ny

This bra is not really comfortable. The underwire feels very thick. I must say though that the girls have never been this high before! It is supportive and there is a lot of room for adjustment in the strap. I am 5' tall and have a short torso, so getting a bra that I can adjust properly is very important.

This is a high quality bra, but not very comfortable so far. The lace chafes the sensitive skin on the breasts (at least for me), and worst of all, the part where lace meets satin makes you have a 1950s-style bra line under your clothes! It's very noticable, even under black. And, to top it off, I didn't notice a huge minimizing effect! It might be because I went a size up than I normally do (34DD instead of 34D) but that was because the 34D was way too tight and would be even more uncomfortable. Overall, I'm just not impressed, especially not with that very noticable seam right in the middle!

HerRoom Response: We are sorry you did not like this minimizer. It is one of HerRoom's top sellers. And, part of your problem could be that you are in the wrong size.

Wacoal Response: She bought the 85122 which is one of our top two minimizers - if she is bothered by the seam she should try Wacoal 85154 which is seamless. I would also bet that she needs to try the bra in size 36D- she said the 34 D did not work and that the 34 DD is still to tight---we think she needs a 36. Jennifer from Kansas City/MO

I am disappointed in this purchase especially since I consider the price high end. The cups fit perfectly but the wires on either side poke into my flesh and hurt by the end of the day.

HerRoom Response: You might want to consider widening the wires a little so that they encompass your breast tissue on the side.

Wacoal Response: Consider the Wacoal 85154 for a true minimizer that is more of a structured bra. Nancy from Gloucester, MA

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.
