To be honest, I didn't think I would like this bra much because it looked like a whole mess of scratchy lace, hanging there on the bra rack. But I was determined to give any bra within my size range a chance, just out of curiosity. Well, the Seduction bra certainly surprised me, because I was pretty sure it wouldn't even come close to fitting me. But I put it on, scooped and swooped, and there were my boobs, firmly supported, ta da. Although a tiny bit pointier than I'm used to.
What I liked about this bra: the band, mostly! The wing is longer than most of my other ...bras (except for a couple of longlines I have) and I really like that it comes up on my sides. There is also boning on the sides, for extra support, I assume. The underwires are pretty long, so they go right up to my armpits, collecting the tissue there, but without gouging out my armpits. In general, my breasts just feel really firm wearing this model.
What I don't like about this bra: the material could be softer. It might soften up after I wash it, though (I haven't worn it enough yet). It's definitely not designed for v-necks, as it lifts and separates more than brings your boobs to the front. And there's the aforementioned pointy factor. I'm wearing this on the middle hook, and it's only been the third wearing - but it could be due to me losing a half inch around my underbust recently. The 32 band is tighter than some other 32 bands I've tried, so you might want to keep that in mind if you're in between sizes.
I admit I've been unfair to Wacoal in the best, only because I encountered what were I thought horrendously narrow 34Bs and 32Ds, not realizing I was simply wearing the wrong dang size :/

This bra is really beautiful, but I suspect that it might not hold up to regular wear because of its delicacy. Alas the size I tried is totally wrong for me so I can't be certain about how the wires would feel if it was properly fitting.
Very pretty, but definitely the wrong size in the cups for me. I get a sizeable quadboob. Exchanging for the next cup size up. (As a note, I'm not sure why the stretched band measures 30 when the size is marked as 32? Is this a common Wacoal issue?)
The bra really couldn't be prettier and the stretch lace cups are not itchy at all. Unfortunately, the cup size is way too small, even my smaller breast is popping out the top. I've come to the conclusion that this brand will never tack properly because it isn't meant for breasts my shape. Even one I tried in an H cup doesn't completely contain my breasts and tack. Because the cups are too small the outer underwire stabs into tissue and the additional side support wire left some pretty nasty bruises after a full day of wear which was weird because the band doesn't feel too tight (I can fit nearly my whole hand under the back). I liked how wide the straps sit but I don't think most ladies will, my shoulders are a little wide. Time to give up on Wacoal and move on to another brand.
