I loved the style of this bra but found it a little to snug in the size I ordered. Returned for exchange fo a larger cup size. I hope the new size fits when I get it. Robin from CO

I was disappointed because this bra's cups did not fit. The quality of the material was okay and the workmanship looked fine, but what good is all of that if the cups are too small?

Wacoal Response: As an H cup you may have to search for a larger cup size. It may work to go up a band size to 36- the cups will be larger but be sure and try one on before you order it. BRAZIE from ORLANDO, FLORIDA USA

This bra fits like a glove and has no-slip straps that stay on my shoulders. Will definitely purchase more of this one. And I usually bought a lined cup. This one is perfect without the lining. BONNIE from SAGINAW, MI

Wow, I LOVE this bra! I had breast cancer 10 years ago with a lumpectomy. Since then I have had a horrible time trying to find a bra that didn't make me miserable after a couple of hours of wearing it. This bra is so comfortable, all day long and into the evening!! My left breast is much smaller than the right due to the surgery and radiation, so it has also been hard to find something that will fit both without looking bad under my clothes. This one fits both sides perfectly! So worth the money, very well constructed! Ruth H. from Sparks, NV USA

Extremely comfortable. The design keeps the straps from the shoulder grooves. Would like to see cup liners and firmer cup support to prevent back and forth movement. For the first time in many years, this is the first bra I haven't ripped off the minute I walk in the door at the end of the day. Elizabeth

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. Well supported from Illinois

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

This is a really good fitting bra for someone who doesn't want a lot of bulk but does need good support. It is very flattering and this color is really lovely. Donna from Kapaa, HI USA
