Fits well and is very lightweight. Sits fairly high. No low necklines with this one! Only thing that bothers me is the underwires come up rather high on the sides, so they can dig in a little. Gayle from Hudson, WI

I had a breast reduction to achieve this size. This bra fits so well now! Sophisticate from United States

I love Wacoal bras, but this one was disappointing. It was scratchy, and the underwire was sharp and scratchy. I was able to wear it for a few hours, but it would not be the go to bra, for long wear.

Wacoal Response: Thank you for the feedback! Traditional minimizers from the time period when this was designed are made of fabric that had no stretch or softness to be able to reduce the bust profile. Today we have sourced newer innovative fabrics that have softer fibers and controlled stretch to still reduce the profile but not feel as rigid. Try either 857210 in 44DD or 857269 in 42DDD.

Very happy with the fit. Love the full coverage cups. I don't feel like I have to re-adjust after I bend over. I origanally ordered a 34DD but it was tight around and the cup was just barely covering so I went to a 36DDD and it feels just right. Emmaline from Richfield/UT/USA

I love this bra!! It has been my only bra for years. Wacoal gets it right for a minimizer for larger breasted women and it is very affordable. I was concerned they stopped making this bra since it is not carried anymore by the department stores. Thank you Her Room for continuing to carry this style! Darlene

It is great to be able to wear a bra that is not only supportive, but helps to make you look a little smaller than you are. Hey, when you have large breasts there is but so much you can do but ladies, this bra is really good at minimizing. I would only ask that it be made in white. Barbara from Philadelphia, PA

Love this bra! Comfortable and great support. Sadly, this bra is not available in stores here. Wacoal introduced a new one that is not as supportive. Thank you for having this style still available! Sarah from Bonita Springs FL

The unique shape right above the wire gives this bra a fantastic fit. The minimizing effect is very pleasing. For me, it is still necessary to prevent nipple show by inserting "comfy cups" (purchased at HerRoom) but the result leaves me feeling like I look great in this bra. The straps are pretty and comfortable, too. I would give it Five Stars if the style were just a teensy bit more glamourous, but I wouldn't want the fit to change at all! There was one tiny area by the snap that was scratchy at first, but after a washing it has subsided. Basia from La Vernia

Great bra! Great support and shape. It runs a little tighter than a 38 but I am sure it will lose up with a little more wear. I will probably buy more. Michele from Aurora, Co

Very comfortable and effective, natural looking minimizer. I have reordered several times because it's become the only bra I wear. Cathy from Rhode island

This bra did not have any thickness or shaping to the cups so I almost didn't try it on. But when I did I was surprised by the support. It has more lift than pretty much all the shaped-cup bras I own. The material is unstructured, but not stretchy and gives me a great shape. But the thin material means there is little forgiveness if it is cold out. I like that the straps are a little wider than normal, but not so wide that it looks ugly. Jill from Oshkosh

This bra is the best I've ever worn. My three are now just so old that I have to replace them. They are the best minimizer out there! They have lasted for over 9 years! Love this style! Claire from NJ

I adore this bra. One caveat: you will definitely have headlights. I love no padding (the girls don't need any more bulk), but that can get a little, well, awkward. But this bra always holds me exactly where I want to be (no drooping!) and makes things fit (and me feel) so much better. Alicia from Boston, MA

My favorite bra and the only one I can comfortably wear all day. It's a minimizer so, this is a "function over form" situation. In a perfect world, I measure 30F but, this works and covers all. Lori from New Jersey
