Very comfortable, full coverage bra. Straps stay out and cups are not too thick. Well constructed and comfortable enough to wear all day without issues. Kim from Dubois, Wy USA

This is a great bra. It's a good smooth look, with enough of a lining to provide modesty but minimal bulk. It does a reasonable job of smoothing the underarm and "back fat," Very comfortable. I do feel that the cup size is a bit bigger than some comparable bras but not enough to be a problem. Janice from 45869

This bra comes up a little higher under the arms and provides very good coverage, lift and support. The fabric is thick enough to provide good nipple coverage but thin enough to not add additional bulk. For me, this has been one of the best bra purchases ever made. Beth from Arkansas

I love this bra. I am 5.0 tall and have skinny shoulders and always have problem with the straps slipping off.... not a problem with this bra. It holds my chest up and no back fat. I agreed it does run small. I usually wear a 32 DDD or F and I ordered a 32G and it fits perfect. Kathleen from Winter Haven FL

The bra supports nicely. The band fits tighter than other brands of the same size. There are four clasps in the back and being petite, the wide band can get uncomfortable under my arms. Michelle from Missouri

The material feels great on. The cups fit and the support is great. Only problem is band size is a little small (I ordered my usual size). Its tight but not tight enough to bother with a return. Michelle from Missouri

A great seamless option!! I am writing this review after purchasing 2 more of this style. The height of my chest is spot on and perky. I often struggle with getting the band and cup just right on many styles because often when the cup is big enough I end up getting poked in the armpit- this bra comes around the side of my underarm but does not poke me or rub there. The cup is generous and not pointy, it is a very light foam type shell. My only concern with the cup is that they all came out of the package with fold-lines/creases in them that have not come out with washing(I have not noticed seeing them with clothing over them however). The band has 4 hooks which is nice and I wear on the middle row. In goddess I wear a 34 band but in this style the 36 is perfect with room to tighten if it stretches over time. I would recommend as a t-shirt bra for those of you whose struggle for a decent/modern seem less option like me. I also like that the shoulder straps are in "normal" position compared to other t-shirt types like Chantelle where the straps are quite wide-set on the shoulders. JK from Northern Indiana

I ordered a 34H and found out after wearing the bra that it just didn't hold me properly. Lynn from Chesapeake, VA USA

Wacoal, oh Wacoal...I love you! Seriously. My first ever bra that really FIT was a Wacoal bra I found in a discount outlet. From that moment on, Wacoal has become my go-to and this bra is a wonderful addition to my wardrobe basics. It's comfy, full-coverage, soft, and it holds everything together, including those hard-to get side bulges and that tricky "Tail of Spence" bit at the top (the swell some women, like me, have by the armpit. It's actually part of your breast). This doesn't replace my favorite design, but it is a good everyday bra. I will caution you, though. It's molded foam, but it is thin, so "extra perky" days mean you will be showing the world exactly how cold the room is! I would recommend wearing nipple shields or a thick/textured/patterned shirt with this bra. Liz from Texas

Very comfortable bra. I really am pleased with this purchase. I get sticker shock with Wacoal bras, but then remember how well and how great fitting they are and I get over it. I still have two bras from 8 years ago that I can still wear. Would recommend. Kelly from Colorado Springs, CO

The bra is relatively comfortable with decent support, however the shape is a little off. The bra sort of flattens the top of my boob and pushes them to the sides, not a lot but enough for me to ask whether or not my boobs looked weird in the bra. Maheintz from League City, Texas

Why doesn't Wacoal make this for larger cup sizes for the 42 and 44 band size? Especially because this runs a little tight in the band. The 40 with a bra-extender just doesn't cut it. I think this would be great in the larger size. B from NJ

This bra holds me in very well! It is a little tight, hard to fasten, but feels very good once it is on. I may try the same bra in a 34DDD to see if it is a little easier to fasten. I have never had a bra hold me in as well as this bra does. Ellen from LaGrange

I loved this bra so much, I ordered a second one. I like the way it fits. There is some padding, but not too much. I really like how the straps are set in a little so they don't show on blouses that cut in a little. Julie from Stillwater, MN

LOVE THIS BRA! Somehow I knew to order 2 at once and I am glad I did. The straps won't slip off and the coverage over the nipples is adequate without being so heavy as to make me look phony. It is very comfortable without creating back fat. There is no spillage under the arms or gaping. Alyson from Carol Stream, IL USA

I am always in search of a good bra, and this one is definitely that! This bra lifts (nipple in line with mid-upper arm) and holds me in place without spillover on the sides or the top. The soft cup is minimal ( I certainly don't need padding) which I like because I don't want show through. The back strap has 4 rows of hooks (I still can't believe other bras for this size think 2 or 3 will hold!). And one of the hardest things to find for me in a bra is that the shoulder straps have little or no elastic (bounce may be cute for a smaller chested woman, but not for me). Added bonus with this bra is the straps are set in a little, so tank tops cover the straps better. I ordered (and returned) dozens of bras from HerRoom. I started the dreaded bra search since it is summer and I wear t-shirts. Thank you HerRoom! Jody from Southern, NJ

I originally ordered this in a 32H but exchanged it for a 34H. The band was too snug in the 32. The 34 was perfect!!! I have very full boobs and my nipples sit high, so I needed a full coverage bra that they wouldn't fall out of. The "v-shape" of the straps ensure that they won't fall down and I won't be adjusting them all day. It's been a long time since I've had a bra that fit this good. This is the perfect every day, all day bra. Highly recommend! Angela from Indiana

Wacoal nailed it, it's my new go-to! Great support and shaping, a little airy, works with short torso. The shoulder straps are not so wide set that they fall off, and it has just the right amount of lift and positioning east-west. Nancy from Detroit, MI
