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

Very pleased with the bra. I like the smooth design so it does not show under clothes and it gives lots of support. T from Frankfort, KY

I look and feel smaller. It lifts and separates with the middle actually laying flat on my sternum. Submitted from TheUndies.com

In general I find Waocoal bras to be the best fitting and most comfortable bras, but this minimizer did not fit well. Minimizers seem to have very low underwires and the underwire in this bra came below my ribs, digging in very painfully. I had high hopes for this bra, but unfortunately it was a no go. However, I will continue to be faithful to the brand.

Wacoal Response: It sounds as if she is too full for this style. She should try style Wacoal Minimizer 85154 - the best selling Herroom.com style. It is a nice full cup, it minimizes very well, and fits expecially well in sizes 32 DD and DDD. Rhoda from Atlanta, Georgia

I love this bra. I am a tiny woman, but very 'endowed'. When Wacoal discontinued the only bra that ever fit me, I have spent about 18 months trying to replace it. This new Wacoal is excellent. Very comfortable and definitely holds the breasts in place. I would like wider straps at top of shoulders, but the straps are still comfortable. Sharon from Owensboro, KY USA
