I've been looking for this bra since I got into the D cup size. It is the ONLY bra whose straps stay put on my shoulders. I'm thrilled to no longer have to constantly pull them up. Wacoal has always suited me, but I never realized how good a bra could fit. Genevieve from Grass Valley, CA

Like the control & good construction but after a long day on the road, I can't wait to get this off. Bit too constrictive. roadwarrior from Wilmington/DE/USA

I have worn this bra only a few hours now but notice the cup under wire rides lower under the breast, feels long under the arms and dig just a bit. This could be due to lack of side boning. I expect with time, the under wire will mold to my shape and the bra will become more comfortable. This bra may take a few more wearing before it receives a higher rating. Odd Size Gal from Denver CO

Somewhat extra snug around the rib cage. I like it, because I have trouble with straps sliding off my shoulder and these don't, but you can't have too open a neck line as it has full coverage cups. Great under t-shirt style tops. Jan from Olathe, KS

the cup is cutting into my skin i should have gotten a 38ddd other than that it's ok.

Wacoal Response: I think you are correct you need to try the DDD cup. bernadette from omaha, nebraska douglas

I found the underwire on this bra very uncomfortable. It is very stiff, does not bend, and after a few hours of wearing it, I could not wait to take it off. It felt like my ribcage was in a vice.

Wacoal Response: The underwire is the standard Wacoal wire of which we never have any complaints. The bra may be fitting you too tight in the band , Make sure you have it on the last hook and if that does not work you may need to go to a size 44 band. Judith from New Haven, CT, USA

I had a Wacoal bra similar to these, but it is no longer available. I took a chance that the fit on this one would be similar, so I ordered it in two colors. I couldn't be more pleased. I was also impressed with the packaging. The way they were wrapped inside the box was more than I expected from an online retailer. Susan from Germantown, TN USA

Awesome support for an everyday bra! After living in nursing bras for the past 2 1/2 years, this is the bomb! If you are looking for padding this doesn't have it. I have been pleased with the no show through effect, however. Barbara from Greensboro, NC

This bra has more space at the top of the cup than other wacoal bras I've worn and was looser in the sides. Otherwise it is a standard wacoal fit with thinner material and straps. Priss from Virginia, USA

I drooped in this bra, though it contained my breasts just right. The straps had too much give and I found myself constantly adjusting the bra in various places. I thought this might compare somewhat to the 857109 Wacoal Simple Shaping Minimizer Bra. It doesn't. I love the 857109 and it's a great price just like this one. Wish I could have given a better report on this bra. Sandy from NC

This one was a winner. The sizing was accurate and the fit is comfortable. I would most likely order this brand again. Linda

Finally! A flattering bra that holds the girls up but not in. The wide back and sides absolutely hugs the body, and it does not ride up my back as every other bra I have ever tried ultimately does to one degree or another. Deidre from Providence,RI

Pretty close to perfect and it comes in purple too! Pretty exciting color option for the larger sizes! But the perfect bra would be cotton; still looking for that. And the more than perfect bra would mean I'd not have that "can't wait to take it off at the end of the day" feeling! Terry from Ashland OR

The bra fit well and performed as all Wacoal products, excellent, BUT it was unlined! I don't care for the "headlights" effect and therefor this style would not work for me. Vicki from Birmingham, AL

It fits well, with great support. I have had them before so I know they last. It was reasonably priced and shipped free. I would buy it again. Joni from Middle River, MN, US

This bra fit more like a minimizer. Cup size ran small.

Wacoal Response: This is a fit problem. There have been no complaints about this cup capacity being too small. You bought the bra in 36G yet you describe yourself as being a petite (5'3" and under). I think you should try the bra in 34H or 36H for more cup capacity. Lynne from NJ

I bought two of these bras a year ago and LOVED them, so I went back and bought enough for every day of the week. I love that there is no line on the cup and there is no extra padding, thank you, I already have enough. They wash well and last forever [no dryer of course]. Page from Vienna, VA
