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

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

This is an outstanding bra. Very very comfortable. I especially like the strap placement, no more tugging and pulling up. And what an array of colors! I defintately will be purchasing more! Erica from Petaluma CA

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

The bra fit well however, I had forgotten that these bras are almost like see through. I am returning them because they are see through.

Wacoal Response: These are not designed to be see through bras. They are Single coverage so there may be some show through with certain people. Ruth from Redmond , Wa

Another great go-to bra from Wacoal! This bra is comfortable, fits well, gives a nice shape. I have large, pendulous breasts (even after a reduction) and it feels so great to find a brand of bra that fits me so well and makes me feel so good about myself. Sarah from Lafayette, GA USA

I have been looking for years for the perfect bra. I finally found it! My biggest problem was slipping straps which can be very annoying. I work in NYC so I've been to all the "bra whisperers" and have spent thousands of dollars on ill fitting bras. Now I have a drawer of beautiful useless bras. This bra is so comfortable. The straps are set closer together so they do not slip off my shoulders. When I see a woman pulling up her bra straps I tell her about my Wacoal bra. I purchased the black, nude, robins egg blue and pink. There are also very comfortable matching panties. Donna from North Bergen, NJ USA
