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
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. I will harvest the straps
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
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.
