This is a very well constructed molded bra that has wonderfully padded straps...unfortunately after washing once, the cups shrank a bit and no longer fit. Sad, since it was around $60 new.
The T-shirt type bra (it has seams, but wears undetected under thin shirts) feels well made and the band is true to size, but I just didn't pay enough attention to how my boobs fit into the cups. The center gore is squished outwards slightly due to breast tissue escaping the cups from the center (or out the sides if I pull them back toward my arms).
The bra itself has underwires that do NOT poke me in my underarms and the straps do NOT try to fall off of my shoulders (big thing for me). The shape of the bra gives me a rather flattened, but natural shape. I think this bra borders on being a minimizer, but it could just be because the cups don't fit right on me. The fit is excellent in everything except the cups, and it is very comfortable...just doesn't fit right though.
Overall, I would love it if the Wacoal bra came in my size--unfortunately, it only goes up to a DDD and I think I would need about two cup sizes bigger, maybe only one. Also, I wish that bra manufacturers would stop it with the flower prints on bras. Just my two cents.
