I love this Bra just as much as the soft cup Bra. This one has the stays that are nice and the cup is more firm . I could never find a Bra that fit so well and comfortable as this one and the soft cup one. I always had a problem with a bra to fit around me for my size and cup size. when I did , no matter what one it always scratch my back. With the Bras I have now I have no complaint with size and quality that is so good.. I must confess that I first found this Bra at a business that handles all kinds of bras for mastectomy and a variety for all women ( BUSINESS WAS OUT OF TOWN ). They fit me for this bra and I did buy it. After wearing this for sometime , I decided to see if " HER ROOM" had this . With joy it did and now I will buy it from there. I had ordered from here before and ended up with a mastectomy bra . I had to put cups in it , but it to was comfortable . I didn't want to have to order this one again( I just didn't want to put the cups in, but use it for a sports bra now.. Finding this other business and was fitted for the Bras just like I ordered now . I looked for it on " HER ROOM" I ordered it from here. They also recommended this bra with the other soft cup bra . . This is how I ordered this bra and the soft cup. I will also say for the price compared to the other business I tried first, were the same . As some people they always check to compare prices. I like ; "HER ROOM : I just like the professional , respect, and friendship you receive along with the terms they have. T he quality of there merchandise and variety they have. The support for the " AWARENESS OF BREAST CANCER " . I recommend to order this bra. lalleyjo from Kingsford, Mi, USA

The bra was too tight around. The elastic didn't give and felt very uncomfortable. The cup size was okay. I was disappointed. I had breast cancer and I am desperately looking for a bra that fits comfortably.

Wacoal Response: Sometimes when a bra is just too tight it may not be the band size it may be the cup size. Try on the bra in a B cup and see how that works. You have our wishes for a complete recovery from your illness. Barbara

I like them okay Thought they were a little too expensive. Not as comfortable as I had hoped they would be. I would like to have a no underwire that you have in a larger selection of colors and comfortable. Any suggestions???

Wacoal Response: Wacoal is working on having more colors in this bra. Watch for some changes in Fall 2012. Claudine from calhoun, ga 30701

not what i expected. not my definition of a soft cup bra. i returned all items purchased though i did err on the # of items-3 bras not 2. please correct when crediting my acct. thank you.

Wacoal Response: This is not a "soft cup bra" it is a wire free contour. judy from radnor PA.

When buying a padded bra, I'm looking for either a sturdy cup that won't collapse or actual padding. This bra did not deliver either. I had to return.

Wacoal Response: This bra is not a padded bra. It is a contour non-wire bra. To get full padding or push-up try the style Wacoal bra 85780 which has a push-up wire. SF from California

I like and wear many other Wacoal bras, but I didn't care for the molded cup on this style. The cups are too large and the shape is unnatural. For me, this felt like far too much 'coverage' - sort of armor-like. I was unhappy with both the actual fit, and the styling of this bra. I don't expect that I will try molded cups again.

Very disappointed in this bra and in the entire Awareness line, which is new to me. Wacoal is expensive and worth it for the right fit but these bras are terrible! They are so tight on the loosest option that they leave red marks for the first few wearings.

I bought this bra as a "replacement" for a Wacoal bra that was perfect for me but has been discontinued.

The biggest difference between these two bras is the amount of fabric in the band. This new line of Wacoal bras (yes, I tried different cup sizes, went through the returns process, and found it true of all in bras in the Awareness Contour Soft Cup Bra line) offers less fabric for the same price one always pays for Wacoal.

The only GOOD thng about this bra is that the straps don't slide and that after the red marks disappear the wearer somewhat "gets used to" the fit as being supposedly "proper."

I won't be buying any more of this bra and if Wacoal doesn't get its act together I will be waving goodbye to the whole Wacoal line.

Wacoal Response: You obviously think you need to wear a soft cup bra. You probably should try a nice contour underwire in 34D. You might be trying on the wrong band size. If the bra hurts on the loosest adjustment then it is obviously too small and she needs to go up a band size---but not necessarily a cup size. The straps on the one you bought have not changed but it is not the same strap that in on the other Awareness bras by design. I think you should try style 85340 in size 34D. S

This bra replaces an old favorite that I SO wish Wacaol would bring back--style #65033. The new style is acceptable, but it doesn't fit as well as the old one did. Even at the tightest fastening, the band is a little too large which allows the bra to slide up at times. It is well-made and will last--which it should for $52. Smaller women do not have a lot of choices these days, especially if they don't have $52 to spend on a bra. Stores have racks and racks of 36-40 DD+ but often nothing smaller than a 34B.

I still have two Wacoal style #65033 bras and, although they are worn out, I'm reluctant to part with them. I noted that one of the other reviewers liked the 65033 also. We agree: we'd like Wacoal to bring the 65033 back! It was a perfect fit for a slender frame. This style fits almost as well and is an acceptable--but not perfect--alternative.

I bought this Awareness bra at Wacoal's suggestion because Wacoal discontinued the perfect bra for me: the 65033. I can't stress how it long it took me to find that bra after I'd given up on one that would fit me properly. This one is similar but is tight on me possibly because the band (i.e., the back part of the bra that hold the cups and that you clasp together) is much shorter; it has less fabric than the 65033. I want to accentuate my bustline. Not squish it. I hope Wacoal will bring back the 65033- and soon! SH from Nashville

I find underwire bras very uncomfortable, so I really like this bra because it gives me good support without an underwire. It is comfortable, washes well, and gives me a nice look and shape when I wear a sweater, a blouse, or a dress. MIA from LA California USA

This is a very comfortable bra that provides a little more shape for those of us who are under endowed. I would give it a higher rating if it came with spa straps. Jeanne from Los Angeles area

I didn't put any opinion on rating as unfortunately the two bra's ordered do not fit properly. There really a fine bra, the one I really liked of Wacoal is no longer available. I tried the 32/C. The one I had was a 32D. And I really need a bra with more support then the ones received. I was pleased with your service, no problem there. But I'm finding it difficult to try to buy a bra via order on the internet. As we have out of town company I haven't been able to pursue seeing what else would possibly work. I will be returning the order within the next few days. Florence from Hillsboro, Or 97124

Next to no support, cup is shaped so that it bulges forward in a way that will only get worse as it gets stretched out. I have other Wacoal bras in this size that fit well.

HerRoom Response: This bra does not have underwires. This is probably why you don't feel there is enough support. don'tusuallywritereviews from seattle
