Comfortable and very pretty, but very low cut. My breasts are quite round and still fairly perky, so I have a bit of spillage over the top even though the underwires line up perfectly. Otherwise I love it! Paige from Atlanta, GA

This is very pretty but I have a feeling the lace in the back band won't hold up too long. Also, the cups gape and the underside of the straps are so shiny they will make for constant slippage off the shoulders. Alyson from Carol Stream, IL USA

A bra that makes you look good no matter what you are wearing. T-shirt appropriate while having lacy band. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This bra doesn't allow side spillage and doesn't push in on the tops of the breasts. And it's pretty! Submitted from TheUndies.com

This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. It lays flat under my shirts but still has some beautiful detailing. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Beautiful bra, but have to exchange. For large busted ladies, this item runs a whole cup smaller, order one cup size up.

Response: This style offers ¾ coverage. Most ladies in a contour do take one cup up from their normal size. If you want something with a fuller cup capacity you might prefer Basic Beauty Spacer 853192 Basic Beauty Spacer 853192 or Ultimate Side Smoother 853281. Marilyn from MI

I was disappointed that this bra didn't fit. I've ordered Wacoal in the past and it is one of my favorite brands. I had a lot of fit issues with this bra style. The straps are very firm and supportive due to the double sewn elastic, but extremely short. I'm barely 5'5" and have to have the straps almost fully extended. The band which is lace over power mesh is tighter and firmer than I was expecting. Which for me wasn't necessarily a bad thing since I measure for a 30 band a true 32 might have a problem with it. The cups are true to size as with other wacoal bra styles, but I had a problem with the underwire fit. This bra has a higher more balcony style center gore. The extra height is too tall for me and caused the underwire to put pressure on my sternum and dig in uncomfortably. I also did not like the lace embellishment.

Wacoal Response: Hi KD, Thank you for the feedback and we are sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction! Luckily we make such a broad assortment of T Shirt bras for every different shape so we can definitely find you the perfect fit. Try La Femme Contour Bra 853117, this is our best selling plunge T Shirt bra and it comes in your size! The center gore is designed for a plunging neckline and measures much shorter than 853191: 1.5" vs. 2." So it will rest at the base of your sternum without digging in. You'll find the band fits firm and true to size with scalloped embroidery around the wire and stretch mesh along the wings and back side. The structured cups have deep capacity and provide lift similar to a push up bra. You will love it! KD from MT

I really wanted to like this bra when I received it and I probably would have if I was able to adjust the straps even in the slightest. Evidently with the size bra that I purchased, the straps can only be adjusted to about halfway making it incredibly tight under the arms and very uncomfortable. In addition, minus the cups, this bra is not necessarily true to size. Be sure to order a size up in the band as it is very tight. I figured I'd be safe because in truth a 30 generally is a bit large for me in most brands, but with this bra in particular it ran too small. It has the potential to be a nice bra, but it's just not for me.

Wacoal Response: This style runs a full size smaller in the band due to the embroidery restricting stretch in the band. This bra is one of the most comfortable and flattering T-Shirt bras from Wacoal if it is worn in an adjusted size. Try a 32DD and you'll feel relief in the band and the perfect capacity in the cup. Do not order a 32DDD or the cup will be too big and gap at the top. For another similar option try La Femme Contour Bra 853117 in your true size 30DDD, it's plunging neckline and firm cups are very flattering in low cut tops. Mary from Orlando, FL

Love this bra. Very pretty and comfortable. Fits beautifully. My only complaint would be about the tag sewn onto the band on the back. It was uncomfortable and annoying. If not for that tag, I would have given the bra 5 stars. Needless to say, the tag has since been cut off. While this would generally be a minor inconvenience - it shouldn't have been one at all given the price. Kimber

This is my go-to bra! I own three of them and wear them all the time. The contour cup molds well to your shape and provides a nice rounded profile. Sometimes this looks a little wider under tops than it should, but the padding is great for thinner fabrics. When I get a new one it takes a few wears for the top of the cup to mould to my shape and I have a tiny bit of quadboob, but it's not noticeable. The lace is a lovely touch. Anya from Portland, OR

I am 5'0" and wear a 32G. If you are of similar measurements and have had trouble finding a decent bra, try this one! I have several and wear them nearly every day. It is very difficult to find a comfortable, robustly-supportive bra, being busty yet small-chested and short of torso. It wears nicely under all tops, even thin ones. My only suggestions for improvement would be to increase the color selection and to dispose of the lace edging. It is pointless and becomes shabby long before the bra has reached the end of it's useful life. Becca from USA

Beautifully made and well-fitting bra. Love that it's seamless while still having the pretty lace detail around the under bust and band. The lace is not itchy. The cups have just the right amount of lining and make for a nice uplifted-round shape. I actually wear a 30" band and always a 30 in Wacoal/b.tempt'd by Wacoal, however the 30DD in this bra pulled so tight around the back that it caused the underwire to uncomfortably dig in to me on one side in the front. Hence, I went to a 32, which surprisingly fits pretty secure on the first to second hook. This is definitely a smaller-band running Wacoal bra. I do wish the wires were a smidgen wider, but overall this is a great looking and fitting bra. Marissa from Northern California

Great bra - the only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was due to sizing. I initially ordered a 32D but found the band a bit too tight and tried the 34C instead which fit very well. All my other bras are a 32D so not sure what happened here. Beautiful cut and detail with the lace. I ordered the black with rose/red trim and think it's a blend of practical and pretty.

I originally was a 32G in Wacoal Embrace lace tshirt and it was fantastic! So Comfortable. Now that I have lost weight, I am a 30F. 30DDD just is not the same size like the fitness expert said. It fit great in the band, but I had a lot of spillage in the cups. I really wish they made just one cup size larger....they are usually my go to bra!

HerRoom Response: This bra now comes in a 30G! We hope this size will work better for you. Brianna from Wa
