When I first but this bra on I was amazed at the fit. I have never had a bra feel so good. Its a huge difference from the cheap bras I've always worn. The fit is perfect. Size runs very accurate. I only wish it was lower in the center it shows with a V neck or low cut shirt. Stacey from Huntsville OH

Took a chance on ordering something I have never worn. I have a very hard time finding bras that fit. Loved the fit and especially the full coverage but personally need more lift. Debbie from Algonquin, IL USA

This bra is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to my boobs. Before this, I have never owned a proper bra that fits properly. I'm not one of those "I've been wearing the wrong size bra and never knew" people; I've only just recently even tried to find a proper bra. As a late blooming, then anorexic, adolescent, I never really needed anything more than the shelf bra in a camisole. Then I recovered from anorexia, grew boobs, and started working in a courthouse, so I figured it was time to buy a proper bra. I tried shopping on my own at Kohls and I went to Victoria's Secret with a friend where I bought bras, but they really just didn't fit, but I started to get a better idea of what was going wrong. I went to Nordstroms, where I made fitting difficult by not letting the fitter in the room with me. Once we figured out my size, she brought me lots of bras that fit but were scary looking with lots of lace and crazy colors. When I asked for a bra with more coverage that wouldn't show so much under a snug knit shirt, this is what she brought. It was the most matronly of the bunch (I notice very few women under 30 reviewing this bra), but the most perfect amazing wonderful bra for a modest 25 year old who doesn't know anything about bras.

There is something about the lace fabric of this bra that does not allow it to sag as other bras can. I love the fit, the support, the straps, and everything about this bra! I have tried many Wacoal bras, and this is my all-time favorite. Well worth the price. Carmen from California

I should have tried this bra before now. However, I let the costliness of the bras deter me. This is the best fitting bra ever!! My breast are totally lifted. The comfort and fit is superb! I hope this style is not due to be discontinued as this has happened to me in the past. Apple from PA

Very comfortable bra, no ride up in the back, it supports-adds lift to the drooping girls and I especially like the modesty the cups are lined and have delicate print embroidery of calla lilies so no show through with this bra. I have already ordered another! AJ from USA

Worst fit, and feel I have ever had. Taking it back in the morning. Had a fitter and insisted it was the right fit. If you do not ever move, and never take a breath you might be able to stand it for more than 2.555 minutes, but I can not. There is not enough give in the elastic from both sides of the hooks, only from one side. Once you hook it at the very end what stretch existed to make the connection it is to the limit. It is stupid to suffer.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. Clearly the fitter you went to did not fit you correctly. You need to go up at least one if not two band sizes. This is Wacoal's #1 selling bra. We suggest you try sizes 40DDD or a 42DD (assuming you feel the cups are fitting correctly.) Patty from Huntsville, Al.,USA

It fit fairly well except by the right arm pit. It tends to cut into the skin irritatingly. Harriet from Hillsborough, NJ, USA

This is a nice bra, I'm not sure it's worth the money though. The underwire bulges out on the sides, I feel it on my arms constantly. Runs a bit on the small side, believe those other reviews that say that! Doesn't provide adequate coverage for t-shirt wear. I hope it's longevity makes up for these factors. It's more comfortable now that I've washed it a few times and used a bra extender in the back (and no, I'm not obese). I must say the support is very good though. I'm a bit disappointed; for the cost and the other rave reviews I really thought it would be amazing. I like it, but pretty sure I wouldn't spend the extra money again. Customer service was great though. AJ from Alaska

Great fit, but band is shorter than I'm used to by Wacoal, whose bras are the most comfortable I've ever worn. Also, their sizing in cup and band are very consistent usually. However, I would recommend ordering up a size in the band of this bra. Otherwise it's a good fit. southernsister from Alabama

This is the first time I've tried this bra and I am happy I did! I own several of the Wacoal Elegance Underwire bra and love it, but sometimes I need less coverage for lower cut tops and dresses. The Wacoal Awareness is the perfect alternative! Michelle

Wacoal is awesome. If this minimizer works for you, you might want to consider the Wacoal Feather Embroidery Bra as well. The shape of the feather is slightly pointy and not designed to be a minimizer but, in my opinion, it works very much like a minimizer. In fact I'm wearing one right now. I sometimes wear a camisole on top of it to make it smoother. Wacoal size is pretty consistent. Otherwise, just buy a few sizes and return what you don't need. HerRoom has an excellent return policy. Just don't remove tags of course. The Wacoal Awareness Full Figure Seamless Bra is very sturdy, unlike the super thin Wacoal Slimline Seamless Minimizer Bra 85154 which I did not care for and returned. It has subtle lace design kind of like jacquard yet smooth and non-scratchy. I'm a 32D yet the straps were ample and provided support without digging into my shoulder and without making me feel like a linebacker. Feminine and strong. Thank you Herroom for caring about your customers and being sincere by leaving up the negative reviews to let customers decide for themselves. Arianna

I cannot say enough about this bra. OK, a little expensive, but after years of of wearing uncomfortable bras, this is worth it. Do you know how hard it is to find a 32D bra that looks presentable? This is a pretty bra. I especially like that the underwire is cushioned and does not feel like it's cutting me. If I could change one thing? I wish the 32D had non-stretch straps as the bigger sizes do. I ordered one bra to test it out and then ordered two more when I knew I'd found my 98% perfect bra. Thanks for the great service. Easy to order and also track my order! Sandy K. J.

Finally, a bra that fits. I'm a little hollow on top(age and weight loss). I tried other Wacoal bras but this one fits the best. It has padded straps that are wide and don't go over the shoulders they sit in front. I'll still put up with that for a good fit. I'd like something sexier, but oh well.

Hard to find a large size bra that doesn't feel like it's up to you neck. This one fits the bill. Very well made and comfortable. imisshim from white lake, mi usa

Oh my, what a great fit. It is very comfortable and looks nice on. I have several Wacoal bras and always take a 32 band. Not in this bra. Go up one size in band and down one size in cup. If you measure the length of the 32 band and compare it to other Wacoal 32 bands, you will find that the band on this bra is shorter. Cindy from Alexandria, Louisiana

Great item! I ordered up a band size due to the comments made by others, but I don't know if it really was necessary. I like the way this bra works under t-shirts and more clingy fabrics. Karen

The wide part of the straps don't hit me where they should to offer comfort and padding; bra doesn't "lift" quite as much as I would like Maria from Portland, OR

It took me 30 years to find a bra that fits correctly. Worth every dime. I used to pop out on one side and now I don't. I went to a professional salon to be size correctly and found this bra, now I just purchase them on line. I do not put them in the dryer so they will last longer. Kathleen from Brownstown, MI
