I liked the bra at first. As I wore it for the first time I noticed that the band is fairly tight even on the last hook and I've never had a problem with a 32 before for other brands. I worry about sizing up because I don't know if a 34 will be too big. Also, the cups rub against my armpits and cause irritation. I fill out the cups completely but they don't move my breasts away from my sides enough I think. I may have to try a demi bra. Full coverage doesn't seem to work for smaller framed women or smaller bands. Also, the straps are wide set and slip to the edge of my shoulders and I've never considered myself to have narrow shoulders. I need a bra with a cup that holds as much breast tissue but that isn't as wide from the side of one cup to the other, bringing the breast tissue more forward than this bra I think. Not really sure, I still haven't found a good fitting bra.

Wacoal Response: This style’s rigid cup should be bringing your breasts front and forward. For a style with less rigidity, try 853205 Halo Lace Spacer Contour. The cups are softer and more paired down than 853117 which help’s to eliminate underarm rubbing on a petite frame. The straps will also pull to the center of your back for narrow shoulder relief. For more side support and forward projection you may consider a seamed underwire like Retro Chic 855186 that uses reinforced side slings to bring tissue in and forward. These typically offer much fuller coverage and tall centers, not a plunging neckline like 853117. Stephanie from NH

This is my most comfortable Sister Size Bra. It unfortunately does not go small enough in the band and large enough in the cups for my actual size. I do, however, currently own five of these bras. I keep buying this bra, because I truly love how understated yet beautiful it is. The lace on the front of the band just gives it that extra pizazz to an otherwise ordinary day bra. The power mesh band is supportive. The straps are wide enough so as not to cut into my shoulders under the weight of my breasts, and the cups give a nice rounded shape, a bit minimized though. The quality and craftsmanship also make these bras rather durable. My two oldest are over a year old maybe closer to two years. I have replaced them, but keep them around for when I don't want to sweat up my newer, more expensive true size bras. The Nude is still wearable, but is very broken in and now lacking in support, which is to be expected given how long I've had the bra. The only thing wrong with it is that the elastic on the straps is showing signs of unraveling. The Blue one is in a more advanced stage. The elastic along the back at the top of the band on one side needs to be replaced. Luckily the straps are long enough on me that I can shorten them to replace the band elastic and keep these trusty old bras around a bit longer. I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of them- with no special care taken. Both bras were worn in rotation and machine washed in a lingerie bag every week till I purchased new bras to replace them. Great bra! Blues from MT

It's comfortable, cute, and fits true to size but I wouldn't recommend it to women with larger breasts. There just wasn't enough support for me. Elizabeth from Massachusetts

I like the way this bra fit me. I have a small frame and carry some extra weight. Bra straps tend to slide down for me because I usually end up buying bras for larger framed women. The spacing on the traps works well for me. And the look is natural and this bra is comfortable. Joni from Grygla, MN USA

This is by far one of the absolute best bras I have ever worn. I own it in both the nude and the black currently, and I'll be coming back for more. It's the perfect support without ridiculous padding. The middle rise is perfect, as are the rise of the cups (no quadraboob). Marissa from Philadelphia, PA, USA

I have tried on 20 different bras in a size 32H. None of the bras have fit at all (in a moulded cup ). I pretty much gave up on finding a nice tshirt bra in my size. But this bra is the most amazing bra I have ever tried on. It doesn't cut into my side and the wire covers my entire breast. There is absolutely no spillage over the cups ( which is the biggest problem I had in all the other bras I tried on ), no uniboob. They are lifted an there is so much support. Absolutely amazing.

I LOVE this bra. My size is actually a 32 D4 but it wasn't available so I purchased the 34 D3. It fits beautifully and I'm very happy. The cups aren't huge so it doesn't show in lower cut tops for the most part, there are a few exceptions but at my size I don't have many options, but they are supportive. I love that they are lined- no poking out. The cleavage edge has a hem so no rolling- which drives me nuts!! But it is still smooth under my shirts, even thin t-shirts. I'm so happy I'm scared to order my actual size fearing it might not fit!! And I hate paying for return shipping- which happens more often than not. I'm also happy with the price. At my size I was afraid I'd have to pay 80 a bra all the time. This is a wonderful all-around bra, great price, wears well. I hope they never stop making it! Laura from Queens, NY

Very comfortable and supportive bra. I lie that it pushes the breasts together instead of separating them like so many bras do. Colleen from South Padre Island, TX

I really liked this bra. It fits well and has good support plus a lacey touch many bras forget. I like the silvery gray color also. A good "new" neutral! Barbara

This bra gives good cleavage and coverage and also has a back design that I've found is mostly invisible under tight shirts and helps keep those straps on for people with sloped shoulders. My only complaint is that the bra feels a little clunky. Maybe not the best for those petite in frame- but probably good for anyone who wants to look busty without a push-up. Bra fits true to size.

I love this bra. It is the best t-shirt bra because you can wear it under any shirt literally. I wish the straps were convertible, but otherwise this is my favorite bra and I wear it almost every day. Hannah from Dallas, TX
