This is my first bra that really fits. I have slightly narrow, short roots, with moderate projection and nearly-even fullness, and everything about this bra fits perfectly. It's about as thinly lined as you can get with a tshirt bra (as far as I know), more like spacer foam than true "padding." Wacoal's website calls it "stretch foam," but I haven't seen that before so I'm not sure if it's the same as spacer foam or not.
It's comfortable against my skin everywhere; no digging, no itching, no roughness on the edges of the straps, just feels supportive and smooth. I have a tendency toward pointiness ...in some bras, but this one gives me a nice rounded shape and looks great under a snug tshirt. I love it, and will be ordering in every color.
I'm still zeroing in on my size, and I grabbed this one off the clearance rack at Nordstrom rack just to get an idea of how Wacoal might fit me in a general way, expecting it to be a little too small. I couldn't believe it when it actually fit. It's a cup size smaller than what was recommended to me recently, but I'm not sure if the recommendation was off by a cup size, or if this particular bra runs a little large. Read more 112 more words
This was the very first bra I owned that I purchased after getting fitted for the first time. It has amazingly comfortable u-band straps, lightly padded (but not too much), comes in great colors, wires are comfortable at the gore. It's so great I own 3! Sadly outgrown.
Bought this one on a whim from Nordstrom during a sale - its a T-Shirt bra so I was not confident it would fit - usually I have cup gape but this one was surprising. It fits really well, no boob spill and it brings them together nicely- good line when wearing a tee.
I think its quite deep and narrow wired as it fits my IMF and doesnt go too far back into my armpits.
Wacoal straps are my favorite. So, I have recently purchased a few used Wacoal "donor bras" from which I will harvest straps, bands, and/or wires to transplant onto bras with less comfortable/supportive features. Comfort is everything to me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
This bra is gently used, and the band is generous for a Wacoal 32. In fact, this feels more generous than some of Wacoal's 34 bands. However, this generous dimension may be 100% due to its previous wearing. Nonetheless, the band is holding firm and is, predictably, very comfortable.
The cups are lined with microfiber and the outer lace is invisible under thin ...knits. The straps are fully adjustable, stretchy, and perfectly wide. Oh, how I adore wider straps. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> I will harvest the straps https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />
The gore width is a bit too wide and causes the wire to bite under my breast, and that same wire stabs my most center-full breast. Ouch. Shifting the cups a millimeter or so toward the center dramatically improves the fit. Even with a poor fit, the lift is impressive. I didn't notice how high my nipples had been lifted within the cup. Painless lift. Lovely.
If I needed another lined bra for my wardrobe, I would happily narrow the gore and wear this frequently. I'm almost sad to harvest its parts. Sigh. But, how I will appreciate these straps and this short wire on other bras https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
EDIT: I removed the wires and tried the bra on without the steel. Wow! So much more comfortable. So far, all of my wire removal projects have been delightful surprises. My breasts have not found a wired bra that stays 100% clear of breast tissue. But, these same bras (without wires) are working better than I expected. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
Purchased when I was just starting to figure out that 40D was not in fact my actual size (boob hats!), this is nonetheless a very nice bra. Underwires are a little narrow for me and the gore a bit too wide, but I do have a terrible time finding a contour bra that agrees with my fairly soft breast tissue, so I still wear this one. I'd like to find it (or a near cousin) in a 38G.
*edit 8/26/16*. Turns out that the underwires aren't too narrow at all - the cups are not deep enough and I'm squishing out on the sides. It's as attractive as it sounds!
My local bra-fitting shop recommended this for me. I own it in Natural Nude and Coffee Bean. I'm old enough that I don't want my bra to be visible under my clothes and this fits the bill. I don't wear really thin shirts, so the stretch lace doesn't show; in a very thin/light-colored shirt, that COULD happen for coffee bean or the blue. The cup is thick -- neither your nipples or your own skin color will be visible.
It fits beautifully and comfortably, and it's also prettier than most no-show bras. I can't ask for more!
I am very disappointed with this bra. Based on several calculations I should be wearing a 38G. The band on the looses hook seems a little too loose, the cup seems too small. It does not feel comfortable and I think it is because of the fit. I am wondering if I should go up to a 38GG or 38H. The 38G Soma I have feels comfortable but I think the cup is a little too small also. The cup on this Wacoal is really too small.
When I was finally fitted for a bra, this bra along with a few others I bought fit comfortably, one of the first times I had truly experienced that with a bra. However, as my breast tissue has migrated, it no longer fits. I now wear a bigger cup and smaller band. Wacoal no longer has any bras in my size, otherwise I would get one in this style.
The fully adjustable straps are a godsend as I have a more petite torso. Most of the time bra straps are too long, making the bra droop.
For those with this size, I highly recommend this bra.
