This bra is the best I've ever worn. My three are now just so old that I have to replace them. They are the best minimizer out there! They have lasted for over 9 years! Love this style! Claire from NJ

I adore this bra. One caveat: you will definitely have headlights. I love no padding (the girls don't need any more bulk), but that can get a little, well, awkward. But this bra always holds me exactly where I want to be (no drooping!) and makes things fit (and me feel) so much better. Alicia from Boston, MA

My favorite bra and the only one I can comfortably wear all day. It's a minimizer so, this is a "function over form" situation. In a perfect world, I measure 30F but, this works and covers all. Lori from New Jersey

Best and most flattering minimizer bra I have ever worn! Similar to Bali's discontinued one I wore for years- but even better! Celene from Orlando, FL USA

It makes me look like I have "normal" sized boobs. I can wear it under anything. Bless this bra! Kat from USA

I am done with this bra. I like the fit/support but the underwire causes me major distress. It digs into my skin and I am constantly bending it to get it in the perfect spot. Why Wacoal doesn't pad the wire in the underarm area is beyond me. So I'm on the hunt for a more comfortable alternative.

Wacoal Response: First re-measure yourself to make sure your size is correct. Visit HerRoom's Bra Fit Center for many resources to find your best bra fit. If the size remains the same try a more paired down style with more stretch in the fabric, our new Visual Effects Minimizer 857210 would be perfect! Maria from Kingston PA

I don't feel like this is a minimizer bra, but it sure gives me good support. My other complaint is that it makes my back hurt after a few hours of use. Luna

I love this bra! Perfect fit, put the girls right where they belong. I bought an awareness which I did not like at all, my breasts were pushed out and looked droopy. This minimizer gave a great look and it was so comfortable! Sherry

It came highly recommended but I was extremely disappointed that it was made out of really hard fabric. When will they learn that even busty women like soft, feminine undergarments. why spend a lot of money on something that feels hard and tight and you can't wait to get out of and throw across the room. Keep that stuff far away from me!!!

Wacoal Response: Hi Lauren, this style is considered a minimizer which contains fabric with restricted stretch to reduce the bust profile thereby giving it a very rigid feel. Not to worry though, we have so many options for you in lots of different laces and softer support. Try Visual Effects Minimizer Bra 857210, the seamless stretch design is beautiful and feminine and does not squash your breasts down at all! You might also like Halo Lace Molded Underwire Bra with J-Hook 851205 that has beautiful seamless lace that feels like second skin and stretches to your natural shape. Lastly, Basic Beauty Contour Spacer Bra 853192 is a ultra comfortable everyday T Shirt bra for full busted women that has breathable fabric, it is our #2 selling bra! Lauren from Maine

Unfortunately for me, this new minimizer actually lifts more than it minimizes. But the Wacoal "Visual Effects" minimizer is a winner! LS from Englewood NJ USA

I am 5'7" 115lbs with a rib/band measurement of 27.5' and 35" bust. This is my everyday bra. It is total coverage so it doesn't work with tank tops or most scoop necklines. It works fine with most blouses and (for me especially) with form fitting tee shirts. I prefer a full coverage bra that minimizes. Shelly from Zionsville, IN USA

Did not work for me -too much lift, not enough minimizing. The Wacoal Halo Lace bra actually makes me smaller than this "minimizer". Laure from Englewood NJ

This bra is very comfortable. It looks so nice under all garments including T-Shirts. This is a 3 way bra and I love it for halter and cutaway sleeve dresses and tops. Benita from Catonsville, Maryland

This has become my go-to bra, replacing the Wacoal Awareness bra. Smooth surface, minimizes without squashing or creating side bulges, and creates a less-round, almost teardrop shape. The cup is unlined and unpadded and is made of material that is fairly thin, though, so there is sometimes a "headlights" issue; if you are sensitive to this, this may not be the bra for you.

Was not comfortable, not good for large breasted woman, especially the underwire.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry to hear that this bra did not work for you. We suggest checking out our Bra Fitting Center to find your perfect size in this bra. linda from Charlotte, NC
