I have never felt a softer more comfortable fabric; quite often I do not even feel it which is the first time in a bra as I find ALL bras scratchy and uncomfortable. Per the local fitter, the cup size is one size smaller than my other bras. My only complaint is that I have dense breasts usually pooled at bottom of cup-larger cup equals gap at top. Seams please.

Wanted it to be comfortable enough to sleep in based on other reviews. It is not that, but the color is great and it's pretty comfortable. SS from NJ

This is the softest, most comfortable support bra I have ever worn. I recommend this for any large breasted woman, especially if you have a small rib cage. I will buy more. Teddi from Orange, TX

I love this bra. I've used only underwire bras for the past 50 years thinking I had no choice. This is wonderful! terry from United States of America

Worst Wacoal purchase I have ever made. Extremely disappointed. This bra does not provide the flat-chested the enhancement and comfort of Wacoal wire-free bras that hook in the back. The straps are not wide enough to prevent sliding, it lacks material surrounding the cups so it is impossible to put on without stretching the sides of the fabric.

Wacoal Response: Thank you for the feedback, we are sorry to hear you’ve had an unpleasant experience with this style. From your description it sounds like you would be more comfortable with more coverage and wider straps like our Awareness non-wire 85276. The straps are wide and padded for comfort and pull-closer into the center of your back to prevent sliding. The cups also have more fabric and coverage with restricted stretch for ease of fit. We do not make size 32D in this style so you would need to order the sister size, 34C and put the hooks on the middle row. Stacy from 37205

Okay is about all I can say. It's pricey and doesn't hold up that well, but I'm hard to fit. Can't tolerate a wire. Stretchy straps have a difficult time holding the weight, so the bra doesn't hold up very long.

Wacoal Response: Thank you for the feedback! We think your solution would be changing sizes in this particular style as the band runs one size small and the cups have moderate coverage, not the full coverage that sometimes a DDD cup needs. Make sure you are wearing the proper size first…… then size up one band and down one cup from that in this style. So a 36DD instead of 34DDD. Mary from Texas

Giving 2 stars because the sizing is off. I have 3 of these bras at home. They are my 'go to' because they are comfortable. However, I ordered a 32DD, the size I normally wear. It's marked '32DD', but it is NOT a 32DD. I have one in a 30DDD and this one is the same size! I held it up to my 32DD that I bought at Dillards, and this one is smaller. Really?!

Wacoal Response: The difference in measurement’s from a 30DDD compared to a 32DD are so precise and small, you would not be able to tell a difference if they are lined up. This particular style runs one band size small than your normal bra size. You may also want to think of the last time that 30DDD was purchased; it could be a looser fit if purchased 6 months to a year ago. Also we recommend being re-sized every 6 months to a year as most women fluctuate in size that frequently. Another style to try that runs more true to size is our Ultimate Side Smoother wire free bra, style 852281. Erin from Kansas

Bra runs small and uncomfortable fit.

Wacoal Response: Do not worry we have an easy fix for this fit issue….852189 is known to run a little snug in the band and most will need to size up one band while keeping the cup the same. Reason being, we applied a more rigid band fabrication to provide lift and support without the use of wires. So because of this the band runs tighter than your normal wired bra’s. If you try a 38C you will feel much better. This is one of our most comfortable bra’s In the whole collection if the size is correct. Lesley from Bakersfield, ca, usa

Very comfortable but the cups are a little small so I sometimes have spillage. Overall, a good find since it is difficult to find a non-underwire bra in a 32D. Nancy from NY, NY USA

Oh my, it's insanely comfy! One review said that the gore stuck out a bit and made an awkward angle in her clothes.The gore doesn't sit on your chest, but I don't mind. The material and quality definitely makes up for it! I only wish that I could fully adjust the straps, since I'm smaller. Shea

The bra is comfortable, straps stay where they should be, and because there are no seams on the cups it is pretty much invisible under clothing. However, the cups run small (probably worth sizing up!), and it's not particularly flattering. Beck from Illinois

I went to a bra shop and got a fitting. This was the bra that was recommended for me. It is comfortable and fits well, but I am quite thin and I can feel the hooks in the back digging into me. This padding is quite thin and natural looking. I wish that the band had more give to it. It has a very slight stretch but is not elastic. P from Los Angeles

The range of bras I like is pretty narrow, as I only like wire-free, cotton or nylon. (My skin reacts badly to polyester.) This bra is a perfect fit, comfortable, and a nice shape. Christy from Santa Cruz, CA, USA

It's the best no wire bra on the market. It literally changed my life because now I don't have rub marks and sores on my breast bone from an underwire. I wish Wacoal would make a racerback version of this bra for summer sleeveless tops. Submitted from TheUndies.com
