I hesitate to give it stars, because although I didn't like it, it was a perfectly good bra. Does it "minimize." Yes it does. I guess I do not want to be minimized that much. For me, just do not feel like I look very natural in that shape. I feel sorry for bra designers. Really. We ask of them the impossible! Tina from Baltimore, MD

This is the most comfortable and non jiggling bra I have ever owned. I like the thick straps, the support and the minimizing. It's my new favorite bra. S from Darien, CT, USA

I really like that the straps are cushy and comfy, but they are firm in that they don't allow for "bounce." I like to feel "locked and loaded" and this bra does the trick! My breasts are nicely rounded in this bra (not pointy like some bras make them) and it definitely minimizes my DDs. Natalie from Chicago, IL

This bra is well made and does a good job of minimizing. I have tried minimizers in several other brands, but this one works the best. Marilyn from Great Falls, MT, United States

Hands down the best bra I've ever worn. No other one compares when I am dressed and see the difference between this bra and any other brand. I've tried them all. Aviana lite minimizer. I've worn them until they fell apart-literally. Finally found them again. Marie from Drexel Hill PA USA

One of the only minimizers available in "G" cup. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Did not like the way it made my breasts look so wide, like they protruded over the sides of my body. Pressed them in and out rather than a nice shaped minimizing function.

Aviana Response: This bra is a full size minimizer (reduces your projection a full cup size), and that tissue has to go somewhere. In the 34G, a G cup breast would be compressed and rounded nicely without tissue under the arm nor pressed inward creating pillow cleavage. I suspect if you had that much breast pushing to each side, you may need an H cup bra. The 2460 is not yet available in H, but we are working on it. J S from Forest, VA, USA

This is the most comfortable bra I have worn in a long time. It seems to minimize without squashing everything. It is just very supportive. I have been trying various bras of all makers and price ranges and I like this one the best. I will be purchasing more. Vicki from Illinois

I like the wide comfort shoulder strap and the narrow 2 hook back. It is very comfortable. Dorothy

This bra was very comfortable. I like the way my tops fit while wearing it. It was a snug fit with the band at first, but after a few wearings it feels great. Deb from WV

This is a very comfortable bra and it minimizes quite well. No "digging", no riding up....I only gave it 4 stars, though, because I measure a true 36 and the band was very tight the first few times I wore this bra. I had to put it on the last hook. Then, after a few wearings, I am now on the first set of hooks....even after washing and drip-drying. Kind of puzzling....but now it is even more comfortable. A great product at a great price.

It is a nice bra-but wish the cup size went up to H. 38G is consistently my size, but this ran small. I needed to go one size up. Rhonda from NJ

This is the second time I buy this particular bra. It is an ideal minimizer, reducing projection so that my contour appears smaller, more 'compact.' The seamless cups look great under a tee and the padded straps, although wider than I like, make for great comfort (no gouging into the shoulders). No gaps or bulges and washes well. One minor negative: it squeaks! When I first put it on and adjust "the girls" but NOT all day long. However, this flaw does lessen with washings. I will definitely purchase again.

HerRoom Response: The squeaking you are hearing happens when the casing around the underwire is sewn a little too tightly. With time and washing, this little sound usually goes away. Chris from NJ

It flattened my front and pushed it all out to the side. Arm boobs are just not attractive. Back to Wacoal!

HerRoom Response: A minimizer moves your breast tissue under your arms and up your chest in order to reduce your projection so that you can wear a button down blouse. Susan from LA

This bra didn't give me the support I thought it would according to the reviews and write up. It's a bra for around the house but definitely not for work or going out. Very disappointed. It minimized ok but I don't recommend for fuller cup sizes.

Aviana Response: You might need a 40H – please try the 2457 bra and see if perhaps it’s the size that isn’t working for you, not the style!

First of all i want to say that the bra looks very nice. My problem was wires, the ones in the center and under my arms. I felt that the cup size was right, and i am a little confused why were the wires all over the place...confused. Still looking for perfect t-shirt bra with enough lift and separation... :-(

Aviana Response: I’m not sure what the problem could be. Perhaps the wires were too long for your frame? If that’s the case, try our other minimizer bra, the 2457.

It definitely minimizes but if you are a full cup your cup will runneth over. You may have to try one cup size larger.

Aviana Response: Yes! As with all minimizers, the smaller the cup you choose, the more cleavage and “underarm boob” you are going to create. If in doubt, go up a cup!

LOVE this bra!!! I've searched years for a great fitting, supportive bra that won't show seams through t-shirts in the heat and humidity of summer (when you just don't want to wear two layers). This bra keeps me in place and wears well throughout the day (and subsequent wearings). I've already placed an order for a second just like it. Cristen from Missouri

This bra is absolutely fantastic. I have been a Wacoal addict for a number of years - but thought I would give this minimizer a try. Perfect fit at a 40 DD, complete coverage, comfy, padded straps, and slightly padded cups for ideal coverage under fitted sweaters. Trust me, I've tried EVERYTHING out there, and this little gem is the best. Please add more colors so that I can eliminate everything else in my lingerie drawer! bronwyn from ferrisburg, vt

The best full-figure underwire minimizer out there (and I've tried them all). It is comfortable, doesn't ride, bind or dig in, great support, lift and gives a smooth line under business and casual attire. Amy from Highland, Maryland USA

I really like this bra a lot. It's supportive and truly minimizes. The padded straps are wonderful. I will absolutely buy more. J from USA

This is my third Aviana 2460 Minimizer bra. It is the only bra that I can find (and I have a whole drawer full of failures) that offers me seamless support, comfortable fit, and minimizing control with an attractive style in my hard to find and fit size of 34G. It is tough, too; washes and wears well. The straps do not dig into my shoulders and are comfortable. My only complaint is that the underwire band is built so tough/sturdy that it has a sort of "squeak" noise when you adjust it. Also, even though I ordered the same tag size the actual cup size on my second bra was a bit smaller than the first. Nan from Wisconsin

I wasn't really impressed with this bra to begin with, but then after washing it by hand once...the stitching by the hooks started coming unraveled. I guess I expected more for the money. It did minimize as far as outward projection goes, but I felt smooshed and widened out instead. I don't know...I'm just not very impressed. Leigh from Belton, MO USA

This is by far the best bra I have ever bought!! It is light yet provides great support. I love that it is a minimizer and that it is so comfortable!! I ordered several more of this Bra because I love it so much!! Barbara from Monroe Twp, NJ

This is a great bra. Good shape. I wish the lining were a little bit thicker, but it has been holding up remarkably well. I also have a problem with the itchiness of the band. The cups are very comfortable, but the small, coarse stitches along the bottom of the band irritate my skin. I have very sensitive skin, which is a challenge when it comes to bras! I also wish this bra came in larger sizes. Still, I like it a lot. N from Brookline, MA

I tried it on and it felt great, but then after wearing it again it seemed too big and the underwire digs into my chest leaving a red mark. Perhaps it would be more comfortable if I was to get a different size but this is not one I go to often. Since the cups seem a bit large for me, I don't get any minimization.

HerRoom Response: Your symptoms of red marks and the cups not minimizing sound like you are in a bra with too big a cups. Smaller cups have smaller underwires which should reduce the redness. Janet from

I really like the fit of this bra. In fact, I liked it so much that I ordered a total of 4 of them, but in every single one of them the wire pushed through the fabric out the top. There is no way that I can see to fix it.

HerRoom Response: It's interesting that this issue has arisen on all your bras. It makes me think you are drying your bras in the dryer. This causes the casing around the wires to shrink and thus your wires poke through. The other explanation might be that your band size is too large and the constant movement on your body is wearing down the casing. Sandy from St. Peters, Mo
