The straps stay put, the underwire doesn't dig into your underarm, the cups stay in place and no pointy breasts...yay! Marnie from Texas

I have worn the wrong size bra for years until I finally had a proper fitting in a department store. The fitter found this bra for me. Wow. It fits PERFECTLY. I came to HerRoom and bought two. Now I'm going back to get another color. If you have large, pendulous breasts this bra will transform you. I look 20 years younger!! Barbara from Princeton, NJ USA

This is a very well fitting bra with the exception of the straps. I have never had a bra that I didn't have to shorten the straps some but this bra is short on the length of the straps. I would like to let them out at least another inch but I can't. Phyllis from Twin Falls, Idaho

These are the best bras I've ever owned. I had to try 3 different sizes to find just the right one, but even the not-quite-right sizes are so comfortable, I kept them, too! They go on tight, so I have to do the hook in front then turn it around trick, but otherwise there is not one single element of this bra that irritates any part of me. I don't even notice my bra anymore and never need to make adjustments throughout the day like every other bra I've ever worn. I'm going to order more then throw out all my irritating old bras. Yes, they're pricey, but the comfort is absolutely worth every penny! Linda from Colorado Springs, CO, USA

I am more than pleased with this bra. I bought 3 and will buy more. The fit is excellent. The construction gives support all the way around; it gives the girls a lift that makes one look years younger and more slim. The cups are without seaming, so this is definitely a tee shirt bra, as well as any other shirt. As a massage therapist, I am constantly moving during sessions. I have worn this bra all day and it stays put, the girls stay where they belong, without any tugging, pulling or readjustments. The communication and little personal touches by Her Room made me feel as if I had shopped at an expensive boutique. Loved it! Have and will continue to recommend and shop often.

I usually wear a Playtex and the cups on the same size bra are just right but the cups on this one are too small. The seam that goes over the top of my breasts causes a "double boob" I have lost some weight since I bought my last Playtex so I was surprised this one seems so much smaller.

This is a really nice bra. I don't like padded bras, this one is lightly lined in the satin material. Nice fit on cups in DD, just wish one thing, higher sizes. I would have ordered a 46 in this bra. Wacoal makes a nice bra. The straps stay in place, the back is smoothing and the over bra is just pretty. Wish for more sizes and more color choices is why I rate a 4-star. Mable from Wichita, KS USA

I ordered three bras, all the same size but this feels the tightest of the three. I measure myself before placing my order. Over all I like the bra, it is just a bit tight. Becky - pending 12-31-2013 from Bartlett/TN/USA

I had 7 bras in 4 different sizes so I decided to get fitted at a local department store. I am so glad that I did. I purchased this bra for work and it is amazingly comfortable. I'm a nurse and work 12 hour shifts. This bra stayed put and so did my breasts! I didn't have to fumble with it at all! It was very comfortable all day. Katrina from Bloomington, IN, USA

This is one of the truly greatest bras I have ever worn! The underwire is comfortable, as is the entire bra. I am only sorry I listened to the other reviews and went up a size from a 40 to a 42...I didn't need it; the 40 would have been fine! Naomi from Mi

Excellent bra, very supportive. I like that it's not padded and thus cooler to wear in the hot summer months. I do wish there was a little more fabric around the underwires though, as they tend to dig into my ribs after a day of sitting at the office. Also I wish it was a bit lower cut and would allow for lower necklines. Really those are just minor complaints though, as it's become one of my favorites to wear. Jen from NW Ohio, USA

I love this bra! The straps are located closer to the center of the back, providing more back support and ensuring that the straps will never slip off your shoulders or show under a sleeveless top. The only thing that would improve it would be if the company would produce a lined version. Susan from Iselin NJ

I LOVE this bra. It makes me feel supported and pretty. I told my husband that it's what my breasts are supposed to look like and what they probably looked like before nursing 5 children! HA! This bra is comfortable and pretty and I am thinking of getting another one. Bobbin5K from Muenster, TX, USA

Wacoal is a great, reliable brand. This bra is a perfect basic, with excellent support. The fit is very good. I was afraid it was too small at first due to the firmness (haven't had a 3-hook model for a while), but checked it out in the mirror, and it's just as it should be. I sometimes have trouble with 'quad-boob', where the cup cuts across the top of my breasts, but this bra has just enough room. If you're on the fence size-wise, I would suggest going up one. Love the hot pink! Kim from California

I had to send the first one back which I ordered in my usual size. It was too tight. Then I read on the website that cups were running small. The one resent, the 36G, did fit better but I don't like it nearly as well as I do other Wacoal bras I've had. However, the straps are comfortable and it does lift. Wacoal is constantly making strides to improve our bra design. This style has been on the best seller list for many years. It sounds like you need more support but enjoy the design of the Basic Beauty. Style Wacoal Casual Beauty Underwire Bra 855247is the same frame. The design of this style has the same kicked in straps and also features more supportive cups and wicking fabric at the gore and back. Barbara from Germany

Fantastic! Arrived in 3 days. Great support, almost a minimizer but not like a sports bra! I got 2 of them and will order more. Helen from NC

Excellent fit for my slightly droopy girls. Very youthful look with rounded shape. Non-stretch straps keep everything in place. Fabric is very smooth and dense enough for no show thru. Jersey Jane from Seaside Park, NJ

Extremely comfortable, for a bra with little to no support. Good coverage, but for the price I expected support. I wear it as a sleep bra. Would not recommend to anyone with heavy breasts (DD+).

Horribly thin shear fabric, makes nipple way to visible for any kind of non-bulky shirt. This is not a bra you can wear under a t-shirt or any form fitting shirt. The band was also not a true fit. I wear a 34 band and this one was incredible tight. I thought it might be the price tag, so I took it off to see and nope - band is just too tight - more of a 32. Cups fit well but they were so shear there is absolutely no way I could wear this bra under anything but a heavy sweater. Disappointed because the reviews were so good.

Wacoal Response: The Basic Beauty underwire is just that an underwire. It does not feature contour cups that prevent the apex area (nipple area) to show. We have others that are listed as a T-shirt bra such as Wacoal La Femme Contour Bra 853117. This style has fully adjustable straps, contour cups and fits a G cup beautifully. Kimberly from Montana
