First, I purchased this bra in 32. Whoa! Too small. Then, inspired by NotNorton 's experience in a Wacoal Embrace Lace Wire Free Bra, I ordered a 36. Swoon I have been wearing this for 12 hours and not once felt pain. And, my breasts are not swelling. Over the past several months, I've noticed my breasts swell one cup size larger the day after wearing a wired bra. And, 150+ bras have not yet eliminated this phenomenon. So, it was time to try a style that doesn't hurt or compress...
The lace ...is soft, and the cup lining is softer. Although soft and thin, this lining will not shroud cold nipples. The bra closes with 3x3 fasteners in the back and includes hardware for an adjustable j-hook. The j-hook increases the support exponentially. In fact, I could wear it only with the j-hook fastened comfortably.
The shape is natural and subtly rounded. It does not move tissue out of armpits which is what I sincerely appreciate about underwire bras. The support is minimal largely because I'm wearing a 36 band on a 28" underbust. However, the back is not riding up. I recall the support in the 32 was moderate and the cup size minimal. Ideally, these 36 cups would attach to the 32's band.
If you have short roots, this bralette may work for you. Certainly, it is better for wide, shallow shapes, but the design allows some flexibility. My short projected, slightly narrow pair is happy and not swelling. That is all that matters Read more 168 more words
This is a great bralette. It is versatile and very comfortable. The lace looks so nice under a camisole and the straps can adjust whether your camisole is a racerback or not. I would say the support for this bra is very good for having to underwires or foam. I would also say that this bra runs small in the band. I bought a 34 and I wear a size 30 or 32 band in my other bras. One thing I like most about this bralette is that the band around the ribcage is wide. I think this replay helps to amp up the support.
Armed with black 1.5" elastic, I will transform this bralette into a supportive, lightweight summer bra. It has admirable characteristics which you can read more about here: http://www.bratabase.com/bra/di8wv/
I wanted to like this one because wow finally a tight band. No pulling on over the head. Low coverage unlike bralettes with cup sizing I have tried.
Then I looked in the mirror and it's kind of a mess lol. The cups are very far apart on me and it's too small. I would recommend this for 32D and under. I think it could also work as an option for 30 bands, as this maroon color is quite tight.
Once again I'll be sticking to my Victoria's Secret size M bralette with a band that easily stretched past 38" when it was new
I usually wear 30E, sometimes 32DD, yet I think 34 is my best fit in this bralette.
The cup coverage is much better than in 32. It cuts in slightly but not much. The band isn't too big, but it could be tighter. I like it with the racer back straps since my favorite bralette is halter top.
I have more than one of these, so I may hold onto one and see if any outfits need it this summer.

The 36 Halo Lace Wire Free was rubbing breast tissue under my arm and caused some quadding near the gore. This "issue" is what spurred the purchase of 38 Halo. The 38 cup is wider and deeper which eliminates the fit issues in the 36. Good choice. However, due to the excellent design and material selection, the too-small 36 remains very comfortable.
This bra is very pretty and comfortable. The 32 is fairly tight. I usually wear a 28 or sometimes 30 but find the 32 in this nice and comfy. The cup is ok. I am falling out of it and have lots of cleavage but it is wearable. I wouldn´t want to go up to a 34 because then the back wont be firm enough. This is just a bralette so i don´t really expect it to fit the way a bra would. It is great for wearing around home and relaxing. It gives a good shape for a bralette. I also have marks and spencer bralette which is also good but i like that this one does up like a normal bra - the m&S one is like a crop top so is hard to get on over my head and my breasts but once it is on it s compfortable. This one is much easier to get on. Also i think this one gives more shape and support.
I wear a 26DDD in non-Wacoal bras, and a 30D in the b-tempt by wacoal ciao bella. This bra fits me well in size 30 once I've made adjusted the shoulder straps to their greatest length to accommodate my 30D bust (I think this bra was only meant to accommodate up to a 30C?). I love wearing it around the house/napping in it. So comfy! Those who are a true 30-band will probably find this very tight and should size up...

Black fabrics are often smaller than other colors. Although the fuschia Halo Softcup fit comfortably, the cups are a bit too small in the black. My tissue is overly smooshed and flattened. And, there is a nylon filament of some sort slightly protruding from the fasteners into my back. Annoying. If this had been dimensionally identical to the Fuchsia Halo, I would have simply trimmed the protruding plastic piece. But, I will return and swap for a lighter color or order black in size 38.
