In the past I have found minimizes to be very uncomfortable, even painful. But not this one! I will be ordering more. Kerry from Lumberton, Texas

It's hard to find a minimizer in a 38H. I like this bra. Wacoal is my all time favorite. I've tried so many other brands and Wacoal is built to last for a large bust. This bra fit very good. However, I would recommend to Wacoal to make the straps a little wider for anything over a DD cup and make the band size a little wider in the back. However, the fit and construction of this bra makes it worth the price. Jill from New Orleans, LA

This is a beautiful bra, even though I absolutely hate underwires. This bra is soft and pretty but still supportive, even for a middle-aged woman with heavy breasts. Great product and great price. Naomi

The item was too small. Even though I have other bras of the same size that still fit. But this was too small for my bust. It wears comfortable fabric but not completely because it doesn't have all my bust in, but the underwire is good.

Wacoal Response: Try sizing up in the cup and down in the band, 40DDD. This style runs full in the cups traditionally so if it is too small for your bust your band may be too big and the cup too small. For another modern minimizer option try 857269, the band runs true to size but the cups run slightly large. Qtbee from Newark, New Jersey

I love the way the bra fits as well as it’s sexiness but the wires are VERY uncomfortable and the elastic banding is too narrow. Not great for a busty woman

Wacoal Response: It sounds like you would prefer one of our wider banded bra’s that smooths the back and has lower wires on the sides. Try 855225 or 855213 instead. Both have wider bands and shorter frames under the arms. April from Savannah, GA

Not enough support for me. Even with a lining, be aware that this bra feels very see-through (to me, at least). Susan from Rhode Island

This bra is gorgeous and the material of the bra is very comfortable. Fits like a glove but does not pinch and I love the way it looks, my tops now fit much better. Carol from Los Angeles, CA

Cup size fits perfectly. All my bras are 36's and this one is much too big around. Should have ordered a 34 I guess. Terri from Massachusetts

Great shape and every day support. Would prefer it in size 32GG, which unfortunately it's not made in, and some more colours. LR

Had a good fit after trying on item. Did well to uplift my breasts, but at the same time not to give me that look where I look like I have two mountains on my chest. This is important for me as a very top heavy women. M from Baltimore County, Md

I love Wacoal bras and have purchased them for several years. They last for years and fit me well with adequate coverage and support. Although I really do not need a minimizer or under wire, the fit of Wacoal bras is perfect for me.... so comfortable and looks great under all clothing! The fit of the Visual Effects bra is perfect, and even wears well under light shirts and blouses. Another great style and fits true to size! Susan from Slidell, LA, USA

Fit as expected. Doesn't really minimize, it shapes as every other Wacoal bra. The seam along the band where the underwire is rough against the skin. I've not had this issue with any other Wacoal bra. I'm hoping it softens over time. Christine

It is a nice bra. I used the instructions on measuring but the band is a bit snug and the cups have overflow. At the top. So the fit is not what I had hoped for. Perhaps I'm atypical when it comes to size. I'm quite full breasted and the left a tad larger. Wish I knew what so I should have ordered. Nanci from Oklahoma City, OK

This minimizer looked awful under turtlenecks - totally flattened out breasts! Minimizers should still give one's breasts a flattering shape as well as reducing the look of size only. Barbara from Santa Barbara

When selecting a bra for the day I have a lot to choose from. This is now the only bra I want to wear. It provides great support and shape and yet it is so comfortable it feels like I have nothing on. I do wear dimrs with it since it does not prevent show through. I believe it runs true to size as I usually wear a 32D in Wacoal and a 32E in Chantelle, and I wear a 32D in this bra. AG from Dallas

This bra is a perfect fit and very aesthetically pleasing, but it has one seemingly minor problem that is shared by many bra makers. The edge stitching on the band in the back is very rough and scratchy in the middle of my back. Because of the wonderful fit, I am trying to devise a little fabric tube I can slip over the band that I can adjust after I clasp it that protects my back. Joy

I purchased these bras for my 18 year old daughter. She says that these bras have the best fit and are the most comfortable bras she has ever owned! She now owns 3 and we intend to continue buying this particular brand and style! Colleen from Bel Air, MD

This bra fit great for my petite frame, but I wish it did more of a job minimizing! I didn't feel like it really minimized much at all Renee from USA

This bra was true to size but I didn't like how high it came up between the breasts. It looks prettier on the model than it did on me. It has no padding, just the mesh, which didn't provide enough nipple 'modesty' for me. Had to return. Elizabeth from Pennsylvania

Love this bra. I have implants, but they are about 20 years old, so they need some support. This gives me a fantastic young shape. I look very lifted and sporty, and it eliminated the matronly look my large breasts were giving me. It's looks pretty, too- feminine and low-profile. Summer from Florida
