*Size*: Band runs a little bit small so sister size up one band.
I had to go from my normal 28E to a 30DD in this bra, because the band is a bit smaller and less stretchy than most I have encountered, though the cups are true to size.
*Fit*: Great for shallow/FOB or equal/pointy/far apart/narrow shoulder boobs. Probably bad for FOT/narrow/close together/saggy boobs.
Though I get a *TINY TINY TINY* quadboob on top, it is entirely unoticeable unless I run my hand along the area very carefully and it actually helps the upper edge to stick and stay invisible under shirts. The gore tacks perfectly to my sternum, though be ... prepared for this bra to sit a bit low since it has about a 1/2 inch of stiff material that extends below the underwire. This feature is actually helpful since it keeps the cups from folding over and getting caught in your fat rolls when you lean over, and it preserves the smooth line of the cup and provides a place to anchor strong elastic. The sides of the cups and the straps are PERFECT for my narrow shoulders, but the sides come up far enough to contain my wide boobs. The push up is great for someone like me, but would not be great for someone who has boobs that are heavy on the top or nipples that stick out frontwards or upwards when bare. My nipples always want to point out to the sides, and as it is the push up padding in this bra bring them right front and center.
*Comfort*: Very comfortable
Probably my most comfy one yet. It doesn't shift, it doesn't itch or irritate, it doesn't stab me, and it doesn't make me feel like I'm walking around with boob-shields (a common problem I run into with push-ups). I could see this becoming my everyday bra. However, I still hate that padded bras are so freaking hot.
*Quality*: Three tiny steps away from perfect.
Overall, it is a beautifully made bra. The fabric is bonded to the cups and the rest of the bra, which creates a very smooth, high-quality appearance. The cups hold their shape very well and the hooks and latches are well-sewn. All the elastic is high-quality and thick, will definitely last. The push up padding is thoughtfully placed and not stupid, and the tops of the cups feel secure despite having no seams. The foam is REALLY good quality, will never break down. BUT: 1) Instead of a tag it has wording printed on the inside of the band. Many might enough this feature for comfort, I find this annoying because it eventually wears away and one is left with an orphan bra. 2) Plastic underwires. GAH. They may be more flexible and comfy, but that means they are more flexible, more breakable, less bendable, and less long-lasting. 3) Detachable straps have crappy hooks/are incredibly difficult to detach and reattach. So, not only are the hooks badly designed and made of a flimsy-feeling plastic, they're pretty much useless because they are so tightly anchored in the little loops.
*Appearance*: Pretty good for a casual bra
Compared to its sisters like Cleo bras, this bra is pretty boring. But considering its incredible smoothness and the pretty colors and nice details like the scalloped edge, its a pretty dang good looking bra.
*Stretch*: Moderate stretch
Stretches enough, but not much because of the very stiff no-show fabric. I am okay with this. Thats why I went a band up.
Great bra, definitely my favorite ever-day for tshirts, tanks, cotton dresses, and the like.

This is the second B. Wow'd bra I've owned. After about a year of pretty regular use, my first began to fall apart. Some elastic came off and the bra became loose and unwearable. So the quality sucks .. might have better results if you make sure to give the bra's elastic rest by rotating bras daily. However, I did make sure to handwash it. I probably didn't wash it enough, actually, so I don't think my washing habits added to the bra falling apart.
Quality aside, I ended up with this bra again. The retail price is a bit high for only a year of use, but ... it is pretty easy to find on sale for ~$20 at my local Dillards and sometimes online. I've spotted it in TJ Maxx and Ross, although sizes vary widely. It's a good push-up that cures my desire for those old ill-fitting VS push-ups I used to wear. I should probably spring for a Deco or another popular push-up bra but I think this is a cheap compromise and I already know it fits!

I tried this bra on in black, beige, and the taupe-ish color in a Dillards. All the bras were the newer colorways with the "Animal" lining. I found them all to run true to size in band! Tighter than other colors before. Maybe Wacoal is responding to criticisms? However I found the cups to fit smaller in all colorways as well. Or did I used to wear such an illfitting bra?? Maybe a combination of both haha. It doesn't help that the cups always seem difficult to measure. All my measurements submitted for these bras are pretty similar despite what I'm writing.

This bra technically doesn't fit me, but I just like it too much & it is "good enough". The cup design is sooo much better for my shape and set of boobs than most bras in my size ranges (I wear 28E, 28F, 30DD or 30E depending on the bra). I suppose I need the shallow, wide bras others speak ill of (the kind VS sells, but not in my size- boooo!). Most bras in my size options have a bit too much coverage, are a bit too "heavy duty" and overwhelm my thin frame, and don't give me cleavage (although I can get shaping and support). ... The bra styles in the "matrix" may actually suit me better if they only came in my size...
This bra gives a nice look because of the padding push-up style, but it's not really shaping/supporting my actual breasts. Still, the slender design and cleavage creation makes up for it, and I don't have bounce or feel like I am falling out. The band is snug enough for everyday, but not quite snug enough for the gore to lie totally flat. The cups may be a tad too small, so that if scoop it all in there is the very slightest spill over, but not enough to be a true quad effect. Because of the wider cups, it manages to not cause armpit fat despite not having a thick, high cut band.
As with many bras of this style, I just wish it came in 28 bands. A 28E or 28F in this would probably be perfect. Bras in those sizes tend to be the "heavy duty" styles with thick straps, thick bands, high gores and high sides. There are times I appreciate what those features can do for me, but other times I want something lighter with less coverage that still gives some ooph.

This bra seems to fit but I wish the underwires went up higher on the sides because it gives me a lot of armpit fat. I get some quadboobing after swooping and scooping but after they settle it looks like it fits. When sitting down, it is weird...I get quadboobing on the bottom and gaps on the top. I think if the underwire was higher it would be a lot better because all my top boobs escape out to the sides. The band is surprisingly stretchy for a 30. I got this used so maybe that's why it's stretched but I have to wear it on the last hook. I like that this bra gives my boobs a nice shape and is smooth and seamless under clothes.

Updated: The band started too tight, stretched quickly, and now I'm pretty sure I need a smaller band size in this style. Definitely need a bigger cup size. The straps started super comfy, but dug into my (tall/shallow) roots and caused massive chafing, probably due to the cup size.
Was super excited, but will probably return.

Gapes slightly along the top (this happens with every moulded bra I try) but I can't resist the smooth line it gives under clothes. Wires fit quite well. The fabric is smooth and comfortable.

Love this bra! Cup fit is better the 30D still have slight quadboob but not as bad as 30D. Wish they made 30DDD/E. Love the fun color combinations and it fits so smooth I sometimes forget I'm actually wearing a bra!
