I have a pretty projected shape, so this one was pretty unflattering; it made my boobs look like they were hanging halfway down my chest. The band dug into my ribs pretty painfully too. Part of the problem is just that my shape makes strapless bras hard to find overall...
This bra is okay. It's very light in colour and actually matches my skintone, so that is a definite bonus. I appreciate that it lets me wear sheer clothing seamlessly.
The band is not very stretchy, and it definitely stays in place. I haven't actually tried this as a strapless yet, so when I do, I will update this review.
It's not comfortable to wear for long periods of time (for example, to work). Because it is constructed as a strapless, the band has some heavy duty reinforcement. These bits start to dig in after a while.
Good bra, wish Wacoal had bigger cup sizes!!! Bought this in desperation. Was in horrible shoulder pain from a bum rotator cuff, and needed a strapless and I cannot go braless in public. Cups are pretty small, but as long as it's winter no one notices. Really sturdy bra.
I wore this bra for a special event. The band is firm, wide and the top and bottom of the band are lined with something grippy ( silicone?) to make it stay in place. The bra stayed well and did not require adjusting. I bought the bra knowing the cup was too small because I was in a pinch, but it did ok. The cups seem true to size, but a bit shallow, which I find common in molded strapless bras. The cups are thin but firm. It does have 5/8" detachable straps as well.
This bra is not attractive. Some might say it is downright ugly. The important thing is that this bra does. not. move. A 4 hook strap and silicone on top and bottom holds things in place. So much so that on a somewhat sweaty, not full of movement day I actually wound up with a blister on my side after wearing it all day. So now it's reserved for special occasions. Not much to look at, but it does the job.
I've been looking for a strapless bra with a thin lining that will handle my projected shape and short roots. This isn't it.
The height of the cups is 1" too tall. (I can usually manage cups that are up to 7" tall, but these cut in severely and quadded along the entire edge, especially near my arms). Width of the cups is 1/4-1/2" too wide. Wires are too long and sit on my short-waisted ribs. (I could fit a finger's width between the wires and my IMF). Oddly enough, I had more buckling along the outer sides of the cups on my smaller side. The band is a single layer mesh with restricted stretch and a total of 4 boning stays. No slippage here with the added silicone strips all around top and bottom of band, as well as the top of the cups.
This cup size ran a little small for my standard 32(D4) universal size. I never wore it, just missed the return period from the website that i purchased it from. I opted for a non-shaped cup for more flexibility.
I love it ! Converted me from dreading having to wear a strapless bra to choosing this bra for both comfort and looks. Purchased a black first, ordered a second in nude 1.5 years later.
I don't know why it's so magical but it has sticky strips along the top and bottom, and 4 pieces of boning in the wings and back band.
Only one problem I have with them is the durablity of the hooks. I noticed the hooks wear out quickly compared to other bras I have but I also use them so frequently that I wanted to try another brand and/or model. Compared to the one I got, this wins not even trying.
