I have worn Wacoal for twenty years or more and I have never had trouble with the size (42DD) until this particular style. I sure hope Wacoal is not skimping like some other products are.

Wacoal Response: Thank you for your comments, but you do not mention what exactly the problem was with the bra. Elllen from West Frankfort/Illinois/USA

I sent it back for a larger band size and have not received it yet. I have been wearing a 40 in another brand but this was way too tight so I have ordered a 44. Hope it fits. AzRat from Oro Valley AZ

I expect a bra to lift the girls up and give them a nice, rounded shape. This bra does the opposite. It makes the breasts flattened and forces them to droop lower than they are when they're undressed. Also, the underwires in each cup are different lengths, the right side much shorter than the left.

Wacoal Response: Again, this is one of our top selling bra's, which gives great support and lift. I think you are in the wrong size bra. Kellly from Indiana

I love this bra. It looks good and fits well. The only thing I would change is for the straps to be totally non-stretch. Evelyn from Carthage/MS/USA

Excellent fit, and immediately soft after first washing. Love the way the straps fit in the back and don't move. Wacoal bras are pricey but excellent and long-lasting. Anne from Albuquerque, NM

Better than a minimizer, excellent support and comfortable. No strap slipping, wire digging or other annoyances usually seen with this size bra Great looking under lighter clothes with a nice shape NR from New Haven, CT

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
