Bra was very pretty, but the cup was very small for an H cup. I was so crowded I couldn't wear it. Not sure now what cup size to get now in this brand. Band fit perfect so I know it wasn't small in that area.

This is my absolute favorite bra. I wore it a couple years ago and loved it, then I went up a cup size and Wacoal wasn't making them in my new size. I checked again a few months ago and my size is now available! I was thrilled to be able to wear this bra again. It's both supportive and comfortable. The cups are the perfect thickness/material to give coverage but still move with you. It's perfect under t-shirts and sweaters. Melissa from California

I only wear Wacoal bras. They are the most supportive. I have two of these bras and love them. Jen from PA

I have had a terrible time finding a bra for my new huge saggy breastfeeding boobs. THIS ONE FITS! It stays in place and is supportive without being constricting. It seems to lay well against me, I guess the cups have a bit of stretch to them. Sometimes the straps slip down but I have narrow shoulders. Sarah from Butte, MT

Great support for bigger breasts/band sizes. Smooth under clothing and lifts the breasts and pushes them forward. Cut low enough to wear with any top, and I don't get a gap between my breasts and the bra like I do with many plunge bras. B from Philadelphia

I can't imagine what you would wear this under- the cup edge is super thick and bulky! I also felt the bra was very stiff and did not move with me. Asya from MN

Did not appear to be a DDD. Fell right out of it.

I liked the bra at first. As I wore it for the first time I noticed that the band is fairly tight even on the last hook and I've never had a problem with a 32 before for other brands. I worry about sizing up because I don't know if a 34 will be too big. Also, the cups rub against my armpits and cause irritation. I fill out the cups completely but they don't move my breasts away from my sides enough I think. I may have to try a demi bra. Full coverage doesn't seem to work for smaller framed women or smaller bands. Also, the straps are wide set and slip to the edge of my shoulders and I've never considered myself to have narrow shoulders. I need a bra with a cup that holds as much breast tissue but that isn't as wide from the side of one cup to the other, bringing the breast tissue more forward than this bra I think. Not really sure, I still haven't found a good fitting bra.

Wacoal Response: This style’s rigid cup should be bringing your breasts front and forward. For a style with less rigidity, try 853205 Halo Lace Spacer Contour. The cups are softer and more paired down than 853117 which help’s to eliminate underarm rubbing on a petite frame. The straps will also pull to the center of your back for narrow shoulder relief. For more side support and forward projection you may consider a seamed underwire like Retro Chic 855186 that uses reinforced side slings to bring tissue in and forward. These typically offer much fuller coverage and tall centers, not a plunging neckline like 853117. Stephanie from NH

This is my most comfortable Sister Size Bra. It unfortunately does not go small enough in the band and large enough in the cups for my actual size. I do, however, currently own five of these bras. I keep buying this bra, because I truly love how understated yet beautiful it is. The lace on the front of the band just gives it that extra pizazz to an otherwise ordinary day bra. The power mesh band is supportive. The straps are wide enough so as not to cut into my shoulders under the weight of my breasts, and the cups give a nice rounded shape, a bit minimized though. The quality and craftsmanship also make these bras rather durable. My two oldest are over a year old maybe closer to two years. I have replaced them, but keep them around for when I don't want to sweat up my newer, more expensive true size bras. The Nude is still wearable, but is very broken in and now lacking in support, which is to be expected given how long I've had the bra. The only thing wrong with it is that the elastic on the straps is showing signs of unraveling. The Blue one is in a more advanced stage. The elastic along the back at the top of the band on one side needs to be replaced. Luckily the straps are long enough on me that I can shorten them to replace the band elastic and keep these trusty old bras around a bit longer. I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of them- with no special care taken. Both bras were worn in rotation and machine washed in a lingerie bag every week till I purchased new bras to replace them. Great bra! Blues from MT

It's comfortable, cute, and fits true to size but I wouldn't recommend it to women with larger breasts. There just wasn't enough support for me. Elizabeth from Massachusetts
