This bra is truly a lucky find for me, as smooth seamless-cupped t-shirt bras that fit a 26 underbust are almost impossible to find. Especially without importing from Poland!
The band is lace on the outside and mesh on the inside, so it's quite cool. The elastic is covered with some velvety fabric so it doesn't irritate. And most importantly the band is exceptionally small for a "30" band, which is excellent for me. Brand new, it is just tight enough on the innermost hook, so I will have to alter it as time goes on. I also have this bra in the purple colorway, and it does stretch ...out noticeably over time. There are 3 columns of 2 hooks.
The straps are a thick, velvety texture which is as comfy as non-sport bras get. Which is not very comfortable IMO, but it's all relative. They are fully adjustable, but I don't need that.
The gore is low and narrow enough not to rest on breast tissue even though I'm quite close set.
The cups fit very nicely. They are molded foam cups that hold their own shape without a boob in them, but are softer compared to other molded cups. Most molded cups I try have the problem of flattening my boobs, buckling over at the bottom, and gaping at the top - probably because they are too shallow. For whatever reason, this bra has none of those issues. They are closed enough at the top that despite my FOB shape and short roots, I don't get any noticeable gaping, even on my smaller side. The cups definitely cope with my asymmetry well.
Compared to the purple colorway, the narrower gore on this version alleviates the problems I had with the purple colorway. The wires no longer sit on breast tissue in the middle, and sides of the cups don't dig into my armpits.
The wires are slightly too wide for me, but it's not uncomfortable and the bra doesn't cut into my armpits much.
It gives a shape that I like under clothing. Definitely not as lifted or centered as Comexim, but rounded and invisible even under clingy white t-shirts. Read more 251 more words
The underwire moves a bit and pinches when I slouch. I think the band is too wide (for reference, underbust is 29.5 loose and 28.5snug). The cups are soft and fit well. The straps are a little wideset for narrow shoulders.
Overall, it does not fit, but this is the best bra I have.
It goes without saying that as a 26FF wearing a 30DDD, the band was too large. The gore is too wide for my close set breasts. The upper edges of the outside of the cups dig into my armpits. The wires are too wide.
However, for a molded bra it is surprisingly projected enough. It's very soft and comfy. The straps are elastic and have a velvety texture. I'm even to slightly FOB with short roots, and it does not gap at the top!
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!
