Because of a broken collar bone my right shoulder slopes, most bra straps slide down. The design of this bra pulls the straps toward the center in back and keeps the strap in place on my bumb shoulder. I love it! Very comfortable and is nice and smooth for tee shirts. Sue from Grover Beach, CA, USA

Love this bra. I have bought them in the past and love them. I always have a problem with straps slipping down but not with this bra. I highly recommend. Donna B from Burlington

This bra is lovely and exactly the style that I prefer, smooth cup with underwire. But it's not supportive enough for my size (40D), it felt 'sloppy'. Fabric is skimpy, didn't cover underarms enough. The straps are thin and have sharp edges. Regrettably, I returned the one that I ordered. Sheila from New York

Chose this bra based on reviews from petite ladies with slipping straps problems. When I first tried to put it on, I wasn't sure I was going to like it - it seemed a little tight around my ribs. But once I got it all situated properly, it was awesome. I love this bra! It stays put all day, making it more comfortable for longer wear. The straps don't go anywhere. It is so nice not to have to do any sewing or wear any accessories to keep the straps in place. I am between a 34 DD and 34 DDD and the 34 DDD size of the bra is perfect, just as suggested by the website. I really appreciated the reviews that helped me choose this bra. I'll be buying more of this bra! Heidi from St Louis Missouri

At last! The perfect bra for full figures! I LOVE that there are no seams, AND that there is additional side support AND that the straps are set closer to the middle in both the front and back. What more could a woman ask? Martha from Lenexa, KS U.S.A.

This bra is very comfortable for all day wear and the straps stay in place. I chose the blue bra, and the colour is terrific. I have 2 issues that make me choose 4 stars instead of 5: 1.) This is the first "unmolded" cup I've purchased in several years; the girls are sitting a bit lower than I'm used to with a molded cup, so I don't feel as sexy. 2.) The second issue for me is getting into this bra. I have to hook the 4 hooks in front, then swivel it around, and then put one arm in at a time. The strap placement is terrific once the bra is on, but getting in it is taking me back to my days in gymnastics class! I wear a 40G in other brands, and based on the recommendations purchased a 42G. This was the right choice. Bailey P from Glenwood Springs, Colorado, USA

The blue bra was pretty but impossible for me to open and close with the three hooks in back and unable to turn toward front. My osteoporosis and arthritis prevent me from using this. It was not the fault of the bra. Betty from Knoxville

This does not fit like a Wacoal at all. All other CHEAP bras I have bought elsewhere in same size are MUCH more comfortable. This is so tight and unwearable. It feels like it is 2 sizes too small. What gives? I really want to return it. Ms. T from Washington state

Support and definition! Straps are designed "in" or towards the center a bit to keep them from falling. I am not perfectly symmetrical so the stretch in the cups help with uneven breasts. This bra has more fabric therefore it does show on my more open or revealing tops/tanks. I'm still giving it 5 stars because this extra coverage allows for the great fit and support.

I thought I needed a larger bra size than the one I have worn for several years, so I measured myself according to your instructions. I've worn 40D Flower Bali for years, and ordered 44DD Wacoal after measuring myself according to your instructions. To my surprise, the bra was much too tight. I think the cup size was correct, but the straps were so short(I had lengthened as much as possible) and the bra so tight that I could not even get it on. I saw that the Macy's website offered Flower Bali, so I simply ordered from them. Your site said that Flower Bali was discontinued. In future, I will just go to a store and try on bras for a new size. But I do think that either the Wacoal or Bali sizing is far off the standard. I know that Wacoal has a fine reputation in Japan, perhaps it is sized for small-bodied women. I only know that the 44 Wacoal is much tighter than the 40 Bali. The fabric and workmanship seemed of high quality. Gloria from Novato, CA

Great bra, great support, and no bulging. Does itch though, that would be my only complaint. The band itches my back. Sarah from Angelica, NY USA

After developing a more matronly figure a few years ago, I hated buying bras, trying them on and never finding a truly comfortable fit. HerRoom has changed my entire outlook on bras. I followed the "HerRoom fitting" guide and the bra fit perfectly! The Wacoal full figure underwire bra is super comfortable. I have no weight on my shoulders and no binding around my ribcage. I weigh about 50 lbs more than I should and yet I have no bra bulges. It gives me a smooth back and sides. This bra has improved my confidence and figure (I no longer look matronly) I am seriously impressed and already ordered more! Kate from McKinney/TX/USA

Cup size almost too small; I normally wear D in other brands; could have used DD in this bra.

Wacoal Response: The cup in this bra does run just a bit smaller that some of our other full figure bras. It is designed with a "comfort back" which makes the cup a little less forgiving than some other bras. Maybe you should try the bra in size 34DD. G from Hastings, FL USA

This is a terrific bra! It fits beautifully, and, even better, the straps don't slip off my shoulders. I recommend it highly, assuming it fits your body type. Suzanne

I wear a 40H in the Wacoal awareness bra, which it fits great. While the cup size is perfect, the band of this 40H is at least an inch too short. I had to use an extender to make this bra fit.

Wacoal Response: Because of the "comfort back" on this bra it may run just a bit small in the back. I suggest you try the bra in 42G it will give more space and should be a better fit. Jacqueline from MN

This is pretty much the perfect bra. Straps stay up, it's seamless, doesn't itch, shapes nicely, has good side "control" to keep things forward-facing, and the price is right. I have 4 now. I got my sister hooked on this style too, and what sold her was that the straps stay up. That is the best thing. seamom from seattle

I had to make a change to my bras, as the ones I used to get were discontinued. I have an issue with straps sliding, and this bra does not do that - nice fitting right away. Barb from Burnsville/MN/USA
