    Despite how it sounds on paper, this is the best bra fit I've found so far. I suspect that my cup size is actually slightly larger than this, because the similar Wacoal 855170 was definitely too small. The 85567 (of which I have seven, so I feel confident in them) is a little too small in the cup volume and underwire height and the gore doesn't quite lie flat against the sternum, but it gives fantastic support and feels as if it fits (even though it doesn't, quite).

    I had a professional fitting at Nordstrom, but she never told me my measurements or size, just threw three 80$ ... bras of various sizes in with me (I had told her I was on a budget and she had sounded sympathetic, maybe she was hoping I wouldn't actually check the prices? I literally can't afford not to check prices); she threw in a couple others after I found her and asked if she had anything on sale, and thus I ended up with a beige Wacoal 85567 34H for 45$ (although there were bras that fit better, I couldn't afford them).

    If I'd known then what I know now, I would have written down which brands/models/sizes fit me because I could have looked for them in sales or auctions (20/20 hindsight)

    I do have the problem with this bra that I have with every underwire bra I've ever had (at any size) in that it can initially fit very well but after some hours of wearing it, the fabric pulls off the underwire so it starts pinching at the side because I will now have bare fabric at the top of the underarm-underwire which causes the breast to spill over slightly and get pinched.

    Despite how this sounds, it feels so good every time I put one on! (and wear it all day)

    Pros:

    Gives fantastic support
    Straps are wide at shoulder so bra doesn't start digging into shoulders
    Three hooks at back give full support
    Although can be hard to get on initially due to tight band, band seems to stretch just enough to be easier to put on and not get too stretched out (I have had my 85567s for three months as of November, and I have three pre-owned one of which was fairly used before I got it and all of which have the same excellent sizing and support so I am guessing they won't over-stretch as long as taken care of, e.g. hand-washed in delicate and never machine-dried etc.
    Pretty good-looking for such good support

    Cons:

    After wearing for a few hours, underwire "hides" and causes pinching on breast tissue under arm -- but this may or may not be the bra, as I always have this issue with any bra. (It's like the underwire is smaller than the channel it is placed in)
    Can be expensive
    Could be available in more/prettier colors

    [ EDIT: the bra I took the pictures of is a Cappucino-colored one I bought new, not the beige one I got for 45$ ]

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Wacoal is using non-standard band sizing, by an extreme degree. I bought this many years ago and wanted a replacement. Today, a 34H is too tight. A 38DDD is the actual clone of my old 34H version. Note that the cup size is a sister to the original.

    In summary, this has been my favorite bra for years, and I would recommend it to anyone. I wore it so much I needed a replacement, but discovered the new version uses Wacoal's new band sizing method, making the band size on a 34H too small.

    Straps: The straps are wide set sitting mostly on the bone of the ... shoulder and a little bit on the muscle, minimizing muscle irritation. The straps are a whopping 1.25" and nicely padded. It feels great.

    Band and Underwire: My first US 34H bra had a great fitting band and underwire. It was easily a casual wear bra, where I could even slouch on the couch to watch TV without being irritated. The new US 34H bra is much different. The underwire digs into my 32" rib cage right way. It was so intolerable, I thought it had to be a mistake and returned it. I've now discovered Wacoal is using non-standard sizing.

    Support: Great. Most of the support is on the torso, and the straps are wide and positioned well to handle the little weight they carry.

    Comfort: Great. A bra that can be worn for casual occasions and slouch or curl up on a couch with little irritation. A great any-occasion bra.
