It fit great. Haven't worn an underwire in a long time but this one is comfortable. Liked very much, Ruby from norwood, ga USA

This is my size and it is the best bra I have ever had. I have a hard time finding a bra that is comfortable and holds me like I want it to. Patricia from Holland

I believe the bra is great. I made the mistake of ordering a 36 and I had to send one of the bras back order two 38. The 38s fit much better. Patricia from Holland

This Wacoal #855192 is the one for me!! I've tried them all but this one is the best fit!! I love this color, my favorite, and the fuschia one also. Thanks for your help and assistance with me. Gladys from Austin

Been wearing this style for a few years now. Very comfortable. I did not size up in the cup. So nice to have a comfy bra that fits! Gretchen from USA

Though I measured carefully, a smaller size did not fit. When I received this bra, I initially had problems fastening the hooks in the back. On closer exam, the hooks were very tightly closed and I opened them slightly to resolve the fastening issue. The bra fits but the underwires are uncomfortable. I will continue to wear it but will probably not order another Wacoal Lynne from Churchville

This bra appeared to be really well made. I didn't care for the fit, and it was a cup size too large (my fault, not the bra's) It smashed me completely flat against my chest, no forward projection AT ALL. Those who want a real minimizer may like this bra- it definitely minimizes! The band was a full size too small. I wear a 38 in other brands, but could barely get this fastened in the outside hook. Definitely size up one band size. The wires came up very high under my arms and in front, way too high for me, but those of you who want high underwires will like this. So for me, the bra was a 1 star, but those of you who like the features I mentioned may find it a 5 star bra. Carla from Kentucky

I had given up on ever finding a bra that fit like I wanted and then I came across this one. It fits perfectly! I'm short enough that most bras aren't cut to fit me but this one is perfect! It supports and shapes like I was wanting. I liked it enough I bought 5. :-) Deb from SW Kansas

I'm very pleased and satisfied with this bra that I ordered recently from HerRoom. Love the new bright colors too. I like the smooth "satiny" material in this particular bra and it fits very well. Thank you so much for your service. Gladys from Austin, TX

Band fits around, but this didn't mention "minimizer" in the descrlption -- it is. Wasn't looking for a minimizer. Another issue that makes this not my favorite, is that while it fits around while standing, unlike the other bra I purchased this one will roll a bit. Also the underarm sides aren't very high, so there's a little spill over. I'm losing weight, so this should correct itself soon enough, but until then, it's my bra to wear while the others are in the laundry. Colleen from Bremerton WA USA

The front was too tall for me, so I had to return it. It would probably be good for a taller person. Julie from NY-USA

I've have been happy with all the items that I have ordered, which included the sizing and the fit. I will probably order additional items in the future. Atherine from upper marlboro md USA

I've worn Wacoal bras for years and have always been happy with their fit. This time, buying online from a new-to-me source, I found the correct cup size on the second try. This Wacoal bra's fit is perfect in both band and cup. This bra is so comfortable I almost can't feel I have it on. Her Room is also to be commended for a prompt and painless return/exchange process. I'll be a repeat customer, for sure! Marianne from Silver City/NM/USA

I've purchased full coverage bras before by other makers and honestly like them better. The fit is ok, straps seem short and the cups come up too high. I would probably not purchase this bra again. The one thing that I do like is that there is no padding. scambra from Melbourne, Florida, USA

The correct size for me in Wacoal, I now know, is a 36H, but the 36G in this bra seems to fit perfectly in the dressing room. But because so few stores actually carry bras in my size and because I can never find more than one or two to try on at all, I once bought 4 of these at once in the 36G. I get zero lift with this bra, and it's not remotely figure-flattering on me (I'm hourglass shaped). I've also learned that I need a bit more padding to help take the pressure of the weight of my breasts off my neck and shoulders. This bra worked for a while, but I'll never buy one again. Also? I wear really modest tops, but I don't happen to own a single shirt with a neckline high enough to conceal this bra. It comes up ridiculously high, almost to my neck. Kristin from North Carolina

Fits me perfectly! I bought several of this style about 10 years ago. Still in good shape, although beginning to stretch out. So glad this style is still available. JC from North Catolina

Wire tends to flip around when wearing and putting on. Once that is fixed its the most comfortable bra ever. Christina from Wahiawa Hi

I ordered several Wacoal bras in past and two others along with this one. 36H on this bra was smaller/tighter than others. I would actually need to order a band size up, i.e. 38. Kim

Looks well made, size runs way small, I bought the size I always wear, this one would not begin to go around me.
