Really like this bra once it is on, but it's kind of hard to put on. Very comfortable and fits great. I have 2 Wacoal bras now and think I will be getting more. Karen from Canon City, CO

Due to changes in my exercise and eating habits, I recently lost weight in my middle. This caused my band size to decrease, but not my cup size. Taking my measurements according to HerRoom's excellent instructions and referring to their Universal Sizing Chart, I'd moved from a 34DDD to a 32G. This left me with some anxiety because the style I'd previously worn for several years is not available in my new size. After several days of looking through the styles offered on HerRoom's website and comparing them, I nervously ordered four different styles of Wacoal bras. All four fit beautifully, and this bra is one of my favorites! Thank you, HerRoom, for your many in-depth tutorials, glossary of terms, and videos! Derby from Wellington, FL

This is a wonderful bra for the full figured woman. It wears well and comfortably. I've had this model before (my last bra lasted me TEN years) and it's worth every penny. Expect to "break it in" for about a week as the elastic is very tight when new. Dr. K from Mesa, AZ USA

This is a great bra if you like full support and coverage. The straps are also made in a U-shape in the back, so they won't slip off narrow shoulders like I have. Because of this though this bra is not one to wear with boat necks or scoop necks with a wide scoop, as the straps may show in the front. I really like it for everyday wear and it's a new favorite for me. Ann from FL, USA

The size was right but there was a lot of extra material in the front where the nipples are. Could totally tell under clothing too. Will obviously not buy again.

Wacoal Response: First re-measure yourself to make sure your size is correct. Visit HerRoom's Bra Fit Center for many resources to find your best bra fit. If your size is correct, this is a full coverage bra with a high neckline, so for a lot of women who are shallow on top they will not be full enough to fill up the top of the cups. Or it’s possible that you are wearing a band too large. I would suggest sizing down to a 42G or try another style with more stretch in the fabric that molds to your natural shape like 857210. This style runs full in the cup so size down to a 44DDD. Becky from Pittsburgh, PA, USA

This bra fits perfectly. The only negative is that you can see my nipples through it which doesn't work if I'm wearing a sheer or clingy blouse. Joan from Nassau, Bahamas

The cup size is great but the band size is about two inches shorter than the size 44F. Linda from Columbus OH

This bra digs into me where the ends of the underwire are underneath the armpit. Also the separation between the two cups in the front is very high so it tends to stick out of the top most blouses or shirts.

Wacoal Response: Easy fix! Make sure your size has not changed by measuring yourself with a tape measure at home. Start with the band by measuring the circumference of your ribcage (make sure it stays parallel to the ground and fits snug) and adding two inches to that number. For example, if you measured 40 inches you would wear a 42. Anytime you decrease the band size you must increase your cup size so the tissue can fit into the cup and not underneath the wire. If the wires are poking then we size up in the cup to get the underwire behind your breast tissue (42H). For a shorter framed bra you may want to try Awareness Full Figure Seamless Bra 85567, it has paired down wires for a shorter upper torso. Linda from Morganville NJ

This bra was very tight when I fist put it on. But after a couple of wears the waist band stretches. Love the smooth cup. Looks great under t-shirts. Denise from stokesdale,NC. usa

I finally have bra that fits comfortably. I would like to find something similar, but with a lower cut in front. I can only wear some of my clothes because the front of the top hangs below the bra. - Thank You Mallory from Land O Lakes/Florida/USA

I assumed that stretchy molded cups meant that this bra was a contour bra. It is not. It is only made of thin fabric and ships completely flat.

Wacoal Response: Most people are not aware that a molded cup does not necessarily mean T-Shirt or Contour (foam padding). It simply means the fabric was placed on a mold to form the round shape of a cup. Try the spacer fabric option of this bra Basic Beauty Contour Spacer Bra 853192. It provides exactly what you are looking for, stretchy foam contour cups that are thick enough to provide shape and modestly while not adding bulk or volume. The fabric breathes too and feels great against the skin! Karin from California

Very comfortable. Like the set in straps so they don't fall off my shoulders. Teardrop shape is perfect and natural looking. These bras wear very well - they last a long time before they need replacement. Virginia from Connecticut
