very comfortable but agree that this is not the most supportive bra. the shape is "natural" which means that the cup shape settles lower and more to the sides than my usual go to bra, the fantasie balconnet. ends up making me look heavier than the balconnet's more fwd projection. d from vancouver

Very comfortable. Very good all-around bra. Doesn't have any padding, so have to wear "petals" inside if I'm wearing it under a t-shirt. Gayle from Hudson, WI

This runs so much smaller than every other brand of bra, both in the band and the cup size. It may be a great bra if fitted correctly.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry to hear that this bra did not work for you. We suggest checking out our Bra Fit Center to find your perfect size in this bra. Veritasmama from TX

True fit and very comfortable. Price was right. The department stores are outrageous. Roberta from Zephryhills

I was looking for a T-shirt bra and decided to try this one as I've worn the Wacoal brand for many years. It fits oddly where the strap attaches to the top of the cup. Also, it's not very supportive. I wouldn't repurchase this bra.

Wacoal Response: For a better T-Shirt bra solution try either of our breathable smooth cups like 853192 for full coverage and back smoothing, or 853395 for a lower neckline and beautiful lace straps and band. Jan from Fresno, CA

Love how comfortable this bra is! I've worn Wacoal for years and this bra has the most comfortable fabric I've ever felt. My back doesn't have big lumps and it feels soft on my shoulders. It's short under my arms and usually I get irritation there. Love it all the way around. Susan K. from Billings, MIssouri

Bummer! I'm a 20 year vet of Wacoal. Ordered my size that works in all other styles (and I own ALL that come in my size: 34H). Style & fabric were superb. Fit was so the wrong cup and band size in a low end bra. The center piece protruded so far that my blouse would not lay down. No strap adjustments worked. Terrible!

Wacoal Response: We apologize for the disappointment and appreciate your years of patronage to Wacoal. You would be better suited for a style with more tack-ability like the Perfect Primer 855213. The fabric is ultra soft and the band is stretchy but supportive, you’ll also find better separation and a stay put center in this style. Heather from Tulsa
