This is a very nice bra with good features. It was too small for me not because of the sizing. I used the bra size calculator and measured 34DDD which is what I ordered. I ended up going to a local department store and was measured by a bra consultant. There I tried on about 20 bras and bought 2 of these in a size 34H. I never knew how a bra was really suppose to fit. I would encourage every lady to be measured personally in a variety of bras to find her true size. All bras do fit differently. I like the suggestions for bra types and the added comments about each bra that are given. Her Room does a great job in trying its best to fit you properly. I wish more bras with "kicked in" straps were available in my size. I will continue to shop Her Room now that I know my size. The selection in the stores is very limited. I do wish Her Room offered free returns since I could wear either a 32H or a 34 H. I will read closely the comments and reviews to help me determine which size would work better in my case.

At first I thought this was going to be too small, but I think that was due to the firmness of the material. I bought two of these and they have been my go-to bras ever since. The straps stay put, the coverage is full but not so much that I can't wear tanks and lower necklines. <3 Wacoal! Kim from SLT, CA

I like the bras that were ordered; but would like the pretty colors used in the smaller sizes. What woman no matter her age or size wants to be relegated to the basic colors when the smaller sizes have many more color choices. Pauline from long Beach ca usa

I have very narrow shoulders and this is the only bra that fits my size needs that the straps actually stay put! This is the second one I've purchased and won't be the last. Halfpint from North carolina

It's pretty good. The fabric has a bit more give/stretch in the cups, band, and straps than I would like, so it's less supportive than I prefer. I usually wear it with a fitted camisole so that I feel more secure. I bought my normal size, in which I am usually on the smallest closure; if I were to order again, I might try down a band size because of the amount of give.

HerRoom Response: If you are using the tightest hooks on a new bra that most likely means that you should go down a band size, and therefore go up a cup size. Next time try purchasing a 32DDD, this should resolve the issue of the bra being to loose. Amanda from Fort Wayne, IN

Excellent everyday bra. Most importantly, the straps NEVER slip. Every time I try a different bra, I regret it and come back to the Wacoal Basic Beauty. Sarah from WV

Does a good job at containment although I wouldn't go so far as to say these are the most comfortable bras I've ever worn. The straps taper toward the middle of the back which keeps the straps from falling off the shoulders. Style is pretty utilitarian, not too exciting or pretty. Sarah

I am 57 years old, and finally found a bra that fits me. I followed the instructions in the Bra Fit Guide and discovered my true size and Wacoal bras! I'd never heard of the brand, but ordered this one according to the recommendations made for me. My breast volume is very asymmetrical and the Wacoal Basic Beauty full figure bra is stretchy enough to accommodate both breasts comfortably without overflow on one side and emptiness on the other. The underwire support structure is carefully engineered for an impeccable fit and is lined with the right fabric choice. So comfortable that I forget I'm wearing a bra at all. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have the search end for a bra that fits. chris from oregon

Sizing did not seem accurate. I exchanged for a different size and it still seemed too tight. Barb from Delanson, NY, USA

This is such a comfortable bra -- nothing frilly or sexy, just great support and comfort. It really is my favorite bra. It would be a five-star review, except for the fact that after 2 washings and wearing it twice, the lace edging has already begun to unravel along the top of the cup area.

Even though this bra has high reviews, every one I have bought has frayed and worn on the bottom of the bra where the under-wire is. One started the under-wire showing through after one month. AM from Providence, RI

Perfect fit, straps do not fall off my shoulders, but I was hoping for a bra with more nipple coverage and I apparently don't know how to find it from the descrlptions. BJ from Washington

Per measurements and fitting suggestions on this site, I ordered a 36DDD. The cups were too large, so much that they fit wide dug into the front of my arm and I felt that the band was too snug, so then ordered a 38D, which was more comfortable, but gave me muffin top cups, especially my somewhat larger breast. Because I desperately needed a comfortable new bra and found Wacoal to be a good fit for me in the past (a few years 10+ pounds ago), I just wasn't ready to give up. I didn't want to pay another return cost and still maybe get the fit wrong, so took an afternoon from work and went to a department store and tried on a couple other different sizes and even other brands and came back to this Basic Beauty 855192 style for comfort and a 36DD for the best fit. I do not like shopping in malls, fighting crowds and traffic, so will be happy to order this style and size from HR because they have super fast service and offer attractive sales from time to time. Since I haven't laundered and given this bra a regular workout, I will reserve the 5th star at this time. TK in Dallas from Dallas, Texas

only problem - with the two bras I have - after a while the inner support material will separate from the top of the cup and creep down into a big clump. You will need to cut into the cup, lift the fabric up and resew it all up. Josie from Atlanta GA

I really like this bra. It is true to size, and the straps don't peek out of my sleeveless blouses because they are inset a bit in the back. The band under the arms is wide, helping to reduce that underarm bulge. I bought the nude color, but I am thinking of adding a color to my next one! Pannsy from La Grange, IL

Very comfortable. I like that it has a double layer of spandex like material and inserted on the inside of the two layers is a piece of material that goes from the bottom of the bra and wraps around the outside of the bra and then goes up to the top( I hope you can understand what I'm trying to describe). It holds the girls in and prevents them from spreading out. This will be the bra I purchase for everyday. Regina

Finally a bra built to keep the straps up! It's very comfortable and pretty. I have it in black. I wish the size /style could be imprinted in the fabric. The tag bothers me and I cut it off. Jean from Maine

They must have sent me the wrong bra b/c it was the most uncomfortable bar I have ever worn. I always get another style but tried this 'similar' one b/c they carry it in black. It had no lining around the side wires and it wasn't molded in any way. I had to change bras after 2 hours b/c it hurt so bad. Kelli from USA
