This is the worst bra I ever purchased. It's extremely uncomfortable on me. Disapointed in NJ from NJ

This is my go-to bra. I have had such difficulty with sizing in the past, at a 36G, with pendulous breasts even after reduction surgery I was so disappointed that I still couldn't find a bra that fit right. I went to a store and was fitted with this bra. This bra is comfortable, lifts and separates. It gives a very nice shape. Sarah from Lafayette, GA USA

Much more comfortable than others I've tried in this size. Thought it was worth the price, even though the price is more than I usually spend. Have bought 2 more. Frosty

I have a drawer full of bras that don't fit! Sure, they fit for the two minutes I had them on in the dressing room, lifting, separating and supporting, but after a couple of hours, ugh! F I N A L L Y ! I have found a bra that fits from the first minute I put it on to 16 hours later when I take it off! It minimizes beautifully and separates and stays separated. This bra is a dream come true! BW from Texas

Very high under the underarms.

Wacoal Response: This bra is a minimizer and is designed for full coverage. The #1 selling bra at Herroom.com is style # 85154, a slightly smaller framed bra with is somewhat lower side wing, this might solve the underarm discomfort. Cindy from Marion, Texas

Best bra I have ever had! I had thought I was a DDD cup and after wearing this size for 30 yrs (without a significant amt of weight gain to explain needing a larger size), I eventually decided to try the equivelant of a DDDD, since I always felt eventually my breasts would start poofing out of the top of the bra (which, of course, doesn't happen in the dressing room....it happens after you have had it on for at least 15 minutes and your body has settled into it). Well, I guess I also was worried it would make me look bigger than I was...but just the opposite is true ( AND I DO NOT WORK FOR WACOAL), I appear smaller (minimized) and much much better in a sweater! I wish I had known years ago! I will be placing an order for another one today! Ann from Salem, OR USA

The best minimizer out there for the money, but one major problem: the 34 band in the 34 D is smaller by 1/2 inch than the 34 band in the 34 C I bought (in the same bra) at herroom a year ago. I noticed it immediately and indeed lay them out to measure, and the difference was noticeable. Kate from Clinton, ny

It actually does minimize,unlike many bras that say they are minimizers. It is a bit pricey (over $50 with shipping). I am happy with the bra, though I'm a little concerned about the possibility of 'show through', as it is a pretty light fabric. The bottom line is that it really does minimize.

Unfortunately, it did not fit me. I'm of a petite size range, although the cup size would indicate otherwise. This garment was simply too large for my frame, although the quality and price were above average.

Vendor Response: You are right this bra is a rather large frame because it is a minimizer. You should try Wacoal Style # 85667. It would give you the full cup you need but the frame is more pared down and would not give you the overall coverage that appears too large. Patricia from Sault Sainte Marie, MI

I have been wearing the Wacoal 85154 for many, many years. It is the most comfortable, best fitting bra I've ever found. The people at Nordstrom's told me that this bra, the Wacoal 857109 was a replacement for the 85154. I hope that's not true, because this 857109 is terribly uncomfortable where the underwire ends under my arms. I notice that the shape of the wire is not as broad as in the 85154. I cannot wear this bra because those underwires are so painful. I hope Wacoal never stops making the 85154. It never had that painful underwire problem.

Vendor Response: Style # 85154 is the best selling bra at Herroom.com and IS NOT being discontinued! Please reorder the 85154 you were happy with it before and will be in the future!! Rose from Oregon

This is the only bra that I've found where I can adjust the straps to be as short as I need them to be. This bra is very comfortable and definitely makes me appear smaller,because I can now wear my button-down shirts without the buttons bulging! Thanks! Lucy from Mt. Carmel, IL

i love my Wacoal bra. I wait for the sale because it is worth waiting for. I went to lingerie shops and got fitted so many times it was pathetic. Always the wrong size. I contacted you and saw this bra and tried it. It was perfect, and to tell the truth I've never bought on line before. Thank you Selma from N.Y.C.

Bra does minimize well; however, I want a bra in which the side band and straps are not so wide. Denise from Chicago, IL

Most uncomfortable Wacoal bra I've ever had on. There's no padding at the ends of the underwires and they poke into your sides to the point of pain. Bad design!

Wacoal Response: This is a minimizer bra and by design it must compress the bust and smooth it against the rib cage minimizing the projection of the bust. We have several bras in this size that are not highly projected and may give you the look you like without minimizing. You should try # 855192 or # 85185, they are both seamless and known for their comfort. Michelle from NY

Great! I have been wearing the seamless minimizer for 2 years, and love it. I needed black so I tried this bra. Fits the same, but at a cheaper price! SS from Ga

At a size 36G, it is difficult to find a comfortable bra but I've found Wacoal to make bras as comfortable as the most expensive. This bra is as good as a moderately priced bra can be. Liz from Northville, MI

This bra is terrific in terms of fit - I feel absolutely comfortable and my breasts are contained so much better than in other DD bras - excellent. JMW from Palo Alto, CA
