Best bra I have ever owned. Pricey but worth every penny. Fits as though it's custom. Washes beautufully. I have it in multiple colors. Kate from Bolton

Doesn't seem to be spacer foam similar to others I have. But soft & COOL in the summer heat. Love sides & back - sturdy/comfortable. Slightly wider straps - great. Stretch adjusts to my un-evenness without making it noticeable. A winner! Suzee from Denver

I need more side support than this bra offers. It seems to be very nicely made, but my search continues. JG from Pelham/MA/USA

Very comfortable. Hides my uneven breast sizes. I like the sides, they don’t poke up into my armpits, good choice for short waisted, full figure. No back bulges. J from USA

The fit is great, especially with the sturdier underwire, which keeps breast’s apart. The new color is also beautiful! Trudy from Washington

This bra is not for me. On the positive side, the cups are supportive and the back band is nice. The bra is pretty, too. However, it is so uncomfortable that it is painful. The very thin wires dig into my underarms and side breast. They slip, too.

HerRoom Response: Your review is very surprising. It sounds like you may be in the wrong size. Your comments have been forwarded to Wacoal for comment.

Wacoal Response: This is pretty perplexing as this is such a comfy bra especially, for her size. The underwire in this bra is shorter specifically so that it doesn’t dig into the sides, which is what she says is happening. It could be a couple things: she is carrying a good amount of breast tissue on the sides and should really be in a style that offers more structure with seams. A seamed style would help pull the breast tissue forward and keep her from spreading out under the arms. Additionally, she needs to make sure she is pulling herself up and forward into the cup.

I tried this bra last month and was delighted with the fit. I have a medical condition and need the support provided by this bra. It is very comfortable to wear I even sleep with it. The underwires do not bother me while it shapes and minimizes my profile. Wertzl from United States

Great Fit and Support! A slightly more dressy option than the basic bra offered by Wacoal but just as wonderful. Not too much projection and a natural shape without any pointyness. Perfect under a silk blouse or clingy sweater. Sammy from Philly

I'd first purchased this bra in a local department store after trying on ten (or so) options, and of course, they had only one in stock in my size! So I was very happy to find it available here. I especially like the back-smoothing construction with less-constricting elastic along the bottom edge, and the soft cups that give a natural look. The straps can be shortened enough to accommodate those of us with shorter shoulder-to-bust measurements, plus the sides are designed so that the underwire doesn't poke high up into the underarm area--not a feature every underwire bra does well. The material is very smooth, and sort of sleek--sexy, in a subtle way. It feels true to size, is exceptionally comfortable, and seems very well constructed, My new favorite!

Since Wacoal discontinued my favorite bra 855239 I have been desperately searching for a replacement. I have tried probably 30 bras, both Wacoal and other makes with no luck. This new Wacoal style is IDENTICAL in fit to 855239 ( I tried my old bra on top of it to check), with the added advantage of no seams in the cup so it gives a smooth line under tshirts and thinner materials. Hallelujah!! Lisa from Woodland Hills
