I love Wacoal. I tried 2 new Wacoals this order besides the one I usually order. They are all great. Denise from Middletown, RI

I've been wearing Wacoal for years and have always been a happy customer. I was VERY happy to make my purchase at a reduced price through HerRoom and appreciated the prompt service and minimal packaging. Thank you! Mary K from Menlo Park, CA 94025

This is the perfect bra! Excellent coverage, extremely comfortable, wonderful support and pretty at the same time. Bought 7 so I have a fresh bra every day in this Houston summer heat. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this bra!!! Diane from Houston, Texas

I think that I'm in a weird size zone. Not really 34D or 32D or 32DD. That said, I do like this bra. Although I have to wear it on the tightest hook, it is comfortable and looks good under clothes. Since I do not plan to wear it without clothes, I'm keeping it. Phylly from Boca Raton/FL/USA

This is the BEST minimizer bra I have ever owned. And I have tried a lot over the years. When I bought this bra I also bought a Modern Movement bra, which I thought would be a lot more comfortable than the Wacoal bra (it was softer material and more comfortable straps). Boy was I wrong! This Wacoal bra is superior to any other bra I have owned. The straps do not ever fall down, it provides full coverage for the entire breast with no spillage, and I don't even notice the underwire. It has a smooth appearance under form fitting clothes and does not gap at the chest wall. It may not work for all women but I am so pleased with this bra I wish I could order a lifetime supply!

This is the best bra I have ever worn in my life. It is perfect in every way. I also purchased the minimizer with the embroidery for almost $20 more, and the only difference is the embroidery. There is no functional difference, in case you are wondering. The bra moves with you and moves back with you. The band never rides up. The straps never fall. It is perfectly true to size. I am just amazed that a bra like this exists. It has full coverage over the breast - so there is no flesh popping up over the top like in many of the bras on the market today. Kathie from California

Simply the best minimizer and supportive bra. Great every day bra that makes your clothes fall beautifully and gives a youthful appearance. Josie from New Jersey

At first it felt comfortable but after wearing for couple of hours, the wires started to hurt the side of my breasts, i got the right size for myself, i wear a 36dddd/g from Chantelle(professionally fitted by people at a department store), cross checked with the fitting table and got the size that matched. Although it fits well but the wires hurts the side tissue of my breasts and makes me very uncomfortable!

Wacoal Response: This is a minimizer bra and many find that they are more confining than a regular underwire. We suggest you try a Wacoal bra that is not a minimizer but does not give increased projection. Try Wacoal 855186 in your size 36G or seamless style #855192. The wire pattern in each of these is more forgiving and should work well for you. nia from CA

My goal had been to purchase a frill-less nude color to wear under shearer summer-style blouses. The fit was far too large, with the cups starting at my back and covering to my shoulder. No support or minimizing, sports bra appearance. I am used to Freya and Panache bras (point of ref.) and was disappointed with this bra given Wacoal reputation.

Wacoal Response: If you are looking for a good seamless sports bra look at the Wacoal style 855170. It now comes in G cup and in Nude. This bra gives firm (sport) support and does not have the coverage that a minimizer in your size requires. Mary from Oregon, USA

I don't believe this type of bra should have elastic straps, though these straps appear to have strength. Diana

I put this on and didn't like it almost immediately. The straps and the fabric are both made out of a scratchy material. I will say that the support and the fit were good, so I gave it three stars for that reason. Exchanged for the Lilyette 0998 that has more breathable fabric and more comfortable straps.

This bra was way too large in the cup although this size in two other Wacoal styles fits me perfectly.

Wacoal Response: This style is a minimizer and the cup tends to be a little larger to allow the breast tissue to spread across the chest wall to provide less projection therefore giving the minimizing effect. Since you found styles that fit you perfectly you may not want, or need, a minimizer. Wacoal Buyer from Louisville KY

This bra is a good basic minimizer bra. Nice and smooth under tee shirts. A good buy , for the price. As usual HerRoom shipping is great . No problems for me. You can't go wrong with a Wacoal bra. Oprah wears them. If it is good enough for her, it is good enough for me! Tashy from lakewood, WA

This is a great bra for minimizing the girls without giving you that monoboob look of an exercise bra, while giving you a perkier silhouette. I am finally able to wear tops that button up the front instead of always wearing t-shirts, and I am able to wear t-shirts that have a deeper v-neck. Before, this was impossible because of cleavage. This bra captures the entire breast and holds it in the cup. Because of this, I might mention the one drawback is that you can't wear it with a very wide scoop neckline, because the triangular part at the top of the bra will show. It works with every other neckline, and I am a hip-dressing 50-something wearing all kinds of fashion trends. Another bonus: I can wear long pendants and chains without them settling in the valley between my breasts when I wear this bra. One other downer about this bra: nipple show through if you wear a tight t-shirt. It is summer, and so far this has not happened to me, but the cups are not lined, so watch out for this. Otherwise, it is definitely my go-to bra, and I have already purchased a second. stuck in the suburbs from Houston, TX

would give a 5 star if it came in cup size H. Excellent for minimizing, very comfortable and supportive. Minimizes without sacrificing shape. Penny from Fairfax

Stretchy elastic straps have no place on a minimizer bra. Minimizer indicates that the owner has more than her share...Help us control "the girls"against gravitational pull and bounce factor...PLEASE!!! Laurie from Long Island, NY

Great minimizer that creates a good shape overall. But wish this had more coverage under t-shirts. Also want the straps to be sturdier and a touch more comfortable. jwc from Connecticut

This item might be awesome for a smaller size but it should not be offered at the size I require. It completely lacks the support required.

Wacoal Response: For full support in a minimizer bra try Wacoal style 85122 it comes in your size and gives excellent support because it does not contain any Spandex and the cup bottoms are in woven polyester. Cynthia from Little Rock, Arkansas, USA

Not comfortable at all!

Wacoal Response: She did not comment how it was uncomfortable. I would guess it is probably the wrong size- in a minimizer people often buy the wrong cup size (too small). Angelina

This is my new favorite bra until or if I ever get breast reduction surgery! I love the fact that it is a minimizer that can be worn under t-shirts too. AW from WI
