    I tried this bra on again, 7 months since the last time (and since my measurements have changed slightly). The fit was pretty amazing! And I almost bought it. Great support and great fit. However, the horizontal seams really show through under tees and knits -- even under a tee AND a thin sweater. Since that's pretty much all I wear, and I really didn't like the horizontal seams showing through, I passed on it. The shape is also a little more torpedo-y than I like.

      I have a few of these that I had bought in maybe 2011 and really never wore. I started wearing them, pleased with the shape of my boobs and the look of the bra, generally. So then went searching for more Wacoal retro chic bras, and discovered, sadly, that the same bra makes me torpedo-y (ugh). I don't know if they moved a seam between 2011-12 and now, but I was sad that I can't replace these bras.

    When I first tried this on I didn't like the retro shape it gave my boobs, very triangular and pin-up. They are also much further apart than I'm used to when wearing this. But then I tried it under a t shirt and they looked great! Plus it was on sale and I needed bras that fit so I took it home. After wearing for long work days I can say that the band feels tight and the boning on the side gets really uncomfortable when sitting for long periods. The gore in the center goes really high, like almost above my breast tissue so ... it is not good for even high v necks or anything lower than your neckline. I just got a band extender and that made it WAY more comfy so maybe I should have tried a bigger band. Also I'm not sure if this is from the lace, or all the new bras I've been wearing and I have sensitive skin anyways but I have been breaking out in rashes since wearing it. I think it's because I'm used to wearing t shirt bras that are smooth, and after being stuffed into the lace all day my skin gets irritated. Overall it's an ok bra if you like the retro shape and wear high necklines.

    This is my go to bra. I have it in 5 different colors. It is a Full coverage center pull strap bra with a two part lace cup.

    I have a 36GG Panache Jasmine that fits and this bra in US 36G fits perfectly. Don't be scared away by the US sizing. I feel Wacoaol run large in the cups.

    Pros: wildly comfortable, straps are centered so no sliding off or digging into your armpits. No East/West. Lots of pretty colors.
    Band does not stretch out, I've had some for two years and I'm still on the middle hook.

    Cons: Full Coverage with a high gore,( I'm close set 1finger width between breasts and the gore does not bother me at all)
    Side boning can be an issue if you're more full figured. When I was heavier I would snip a inch off the side boning so it didn't poke my pudge. (boning runs 4.25 inches)
    Matching panties are pretty but don't fit my full lower stomach area in what I think is a flattering way. Backside is generous.

    First Bra that has given me an overall, very, good fit. Everything fits inside with complete coverage. Profile is projected. The girls look 20 years younger. It is a very pretty bra, lacey bra. Band is tight, but not use to a tight band. Would like the center gore to be little lower. Very surprised that there is as much support in the bra because of the lace. Update, the bra is getting more comfortable with each wear.
