This bra is the most comfortable and supportive bra I own, but I don't feel constrained by it. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Fits perfectly. Also, the fabric is quite thin, so it is very comfortable overall. The reason I gave it a 4, not a 5 is that the closure is a little stiff. This may be an advantage over time, as the closure is thicker than some bras and may stand the test of time, but since this review was written approximately 2 weeks after I received this bra, I am giving it a 4 right now.

I enjoy the comfort of this this bra but living by myself it is hard too hook the J-Hook. Otherwise I enjoy the feel and look of this bra. Thank you so much. Cynthia

Wacoal's Halo Lace Molded Underwire Bra is my favorite. It fits my body better than most other bras and the bra's low, narrow, center panel seems almost perfect for closely-spaced breasts (close set -- not much space between them). The stretchy lace fabric is comfortable. My other favorite is Wacoal Body, which has a similar design. Renée from Santa Cruz, California, USA

I liked the look and feel, but after wearing it for a day, I had to get rid of it - it was too bouncy and loose.

Wacoal Response: Our Halo Lace fabric offers more stretch for a more forgiving fit. If you want something with more structure you might want to try Embrace Lace 65191 or Visual Effects 857210. Cynthia from Rochester

Just an update: This bra does fit when my weight is down. It is just a little smaller than my Panache Envy in 30FF, (maybe half a cup size smaller.). I will keep both bras for fluctuations in weight. This is a very good bra for narrow shoulders, as the straps are not too wide. Stephanie from Oregon

I am short in stature, but somewhat heavy build, I have to say this is the first bra I purchased that actually comes up under my arms perfectly, usually they don't since I am short, covers the back fat, and actually makes my 34DD breasts look lifted. I bought two more, love the red. Marie from Vermont

This is a nice bra, but just a little small in the cups. I seem to be between 32DDD and 32G cup-wise in American bras. Also, my favorite bra is the Panache Envy in 30FF, and this ran just as small in the band. So, you may want to size up. It is a comfortable bra, but not as supportive as the Panache Envy or others with thicker cup fabric. It is well-made. Stephanie from Oregon, USA

The straps were too short on the bras I received on the last 2 orders.

Wacoal Response: Hello Gail, thank you for the feedback. It sounds like this style may not fit your torso frame as it has thinner straps that may feel tight and uncomfortable on a longer torso. Try a style with adjustable comfort straps like Basic Beauty Contour Spacer Bra. "Camisole" straps are wider to prevent the digging in feeling and they pull to the center of your back for added comfort and support. Additionally the seamless spacer fabric in the cups will breath and give a nice shape without adding any volume or bulk. This will become your favorite every day T Shirt bra! Gail from Dubuque

I first ordered this bra from Macy's but they had a limited selection in my size. I was quite pleased with the selection at HerRoom. I was also pleased that my shipping was free, although shipping was rather slow. BEST bra EVER for racerback tops. It has a nice lift and shape but if you plan to dance, expect plenty of bounce! Very little support, especially in this size. TaMar

This bra is supportive, comfortable and light weight. The stretchy molded cups with the inner sling provide excellent support, lift and separation, giving me a more natural, youthful shape. Because this bra is thin, I also bought the halo lace T shirt bra, which lifts and supports just as well. E

Being petite my big problem with many underwires is the center support and underarms being too tall. This bra is very comfortable in that regard. But the lace is very stretchy and it does not offer much support. After wearing and washing a few times I am unable to continue wearing it. Linda from Los Angeles

This bra offers NO support! The lace is extremely light and stretchy. Do not buy it if you are (naturally) larger than a C cup. (Implants probably need less support.) Sheila from Connecticut, USA

I love this bra. This is my second and I am thrilled the J hook was included. I sincerely hope they never stop making this style. Diane from Virginia beach, VA

I love this bra but to change it into a racerback is extremely difficult unless you were born with rubber arms to place the J-hook. You need to come with a better solution for this bra or design. A different racerback . They are the only bras that are comfortable on me

Not pleased with the fit, don't do well with the underwired bra.

HerRoom Response: Hi Dietrich, we are sad to hear that you did not like the fit of this bra. We carry several bras from Wacoal that are wire-free, and they can be found here: Wacoal Wireless Bras. Thank you for shopping with us! Dietrich Gray from New York, NY

For me, this one's just okay. I wanted the J hook in the back, but the lace cups are so thin, light, and stretchy that they don't offer that much support, and so I only wear it around the house. Amanda from Fort Wayne, IN

Runs small. Nice looking. Like the option of making it racer back. Good shape to bustline. Nice and supportive. Only marked it down because it runs small. Lucy from oak park/illinois/usa

I love this bra: it is extremely comfortable, provides good shape and support, and it works well with uneven breasts. A great choice for those who do not want contoured cups all the time. I was afraid it was discontinued -- I hope it will stay in production! BCO from Mississippi

I love the halo bra it's firm but not binding and allows freedom of movement . I am active outdoors with atv's, snowmachines, and cycling. It holds well and stays put. Therisa from St Johnsville, Ny

This bra is great and light. As someone who has always struggled to find bras that fit in stores, I was happy to be professionally sized and find great bras online. This one is really light and comfortable and works great under the clothes I own (not a lot of scoop or boat necks though, so that is not a problem). I hope they last a long time as well!

My 89 year old mother had a partial mastectomy 20 years ago. She's been wearing this bra style for years now & it gives her good support as well as comfort. We were very happy to find it since we heard the style had been discontinued. I found HerRoom.com by accident doing my search .... but, there really ARE no accidents, are there? :) JoJoB from Davenport, FL USA
