I love how the V shape under the arm and didn't bunch up the fat, however, it would roll. It appears to need a little more wider lower band. Otherwise, pretty good. Jacqueline from S.F. CA USA

The bra is very comfortable but I had some spillage out the top of one side and I wasn't pleased with the shape it gave my breasts. I have worn the Fantasie balconette bras for years and love the shape. I wanted something with a little more coverage. I'll keep looking.

HerRoom Response: Consider trying Flawless Comfort 853226. This bra has spacer cups for breath-ability and should provide the shape you're looking for. Michelle from Vineland

Nicely made quality undergarment which does smooth the "back fat". Annie from Charlotte, NC

I felt it ran a bit smaller, and didn’t have nearly the side smoothing my Chantelle 3681 (amazing side smoothing for G+ cups. This bra just kind of smashed my breasts, rather than shaping them.

This is my second Ultimate Side Smoother. I want to buy my size in every color. It's very comfortable and keeps the girls where they belong. I will buy this again. Teddi from Orange, TX

This bra did nothing to hide my fatty armpit. I thought the coverage was skimpy and the sides were cut far too low to be useful. I would not recommend this bra to anyone needing side or lower armpit coverage.

Wacoal Response: For a softer band with silkier textured fabric and lighter weight cups, try 853192. The band is silky and wide for smoothing and the cups are made of an ultra lightweight and breathable spacer foam. Viola from New York State

I love it! No bulging by the arm pit or under the shoulders. Perfect fit! I ride horses so I needed something full coverage and gives enough support without the bunching or straps digging in or falling down. No worries about bouncing out of my bra as I trot down the trails! Thank you HerRoom for allowing me to ditch the sports bra and having something I can wear at any time! Deborah W.

Horrible bra. Cuts into skin and the fabric is scratchy. Cups are more padded than expected and fit poorly.

Wacoal Response: The sidewings of this bra are meant to fit softly on the body as opposed to a traditional structured band that can create bulges. The soft nature of the fabric means you may have to manually smooth out and manipulate the fabric to get it to lay flat. More than containing tissue this band is meant to feel softer on the body. You should try style 853192 with it’s wide smooth back for more containment of the back and side’s. Krista

The side strap smoother thingies were confusing and didn’t offer any support at all for side-boob.

I was hesitant to spend this much on a bra - but I am SO GLAD that I did!! It has nice full coverage cups and the side support helps center my breasts too. Just the right amount of lift. Just what I was looking for! PrairieGirl from North Dakota

Love the way it fit, and it was effective in controlling the bulges! Wish it was cheaper for the other colors. CC from Fresno, CA , USA

It holds me up and it holds me in even when I bend over to pick up something. For a DD bra that is pretty amazing. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I was curious to see how this compared to the side/back-smoothing greatness that is the "Amazing Assets" style also from Wacoal. The sides of the Ultimate Side Smoother are cool, but they do not smooth as well as the Amazing Assets, and I also experience a lot of bounce with this style despite the large and seemingly substantive cups. Sticking with the AA for now! Sara from Dallas,TX US

If you're looking for great support in a bra, this is it! It uplifts my breasts and the side support directs them out. Great fit, unbelievable support, and as a big busted woman, the support is essential. Chris from Pacific Palisades, California

I so wanted to love this bra. I found it very comfortable with a nice fit along sides and back but it did not center or separate which is my preferred fit. Instead it pulls your breasts together and for me that is too much cleavage. I am also full on top and the top of the cup cut in just a bit. Lisa from TX

This is a generally comfortable bra that's worth keeping, but I didn't find the side smoothing all that impressive. Roberta

I like this item a lot. I have lots of issues with my breasts spilling out of the sides of my bra and with this one that does not happen at all. Jazmine from Amarillo, Texas

HATE bra shopping, and tried on at least 15 before choosing this one. Not sure I think the side support really does much "extra", but the overall support for a big chest is excellent. NO riding up in back, no spillage up front or under the arms, stays put, VERY comfy, and can wear under anything! Sydney from Omaha, NE, USA
