This bra is much fuller coverage than I expected (even compared to other "full coverage" bras). However, it fits very well and gives a nice, smooth shape under clothing. I got it because the strap can convert to crisscross - they are very comfortable this way and don't show under racerback tanks. The cups come up rather high on the sides and interfere with arm movement a little - I got some chafing the first 2 times a wore it. Now it seems to be fine. I think it's a good product, and am happy with it.

My absolute favorite bra. Its supportive and beautiful. The fit is great -I size up in the band (and down in the cup) compared to panache and freya. Great shaping, allowing for natural cleavage, without excessive push-up or boob-smooshing. The fabric is smooth and comfortable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bra in 32DD is a lot more full coverage than it appears in the pictures and description. I was expecting closer to a demi or 3/4 cup. Full coverage bras tend to cause over-spill on me, and this one does. The cups also seem to splay out to the sides somewhat. So the apex goes more outwards than forwards, and doesn't allow natural cleavage. I absolutely LOVE my Wacoal La Femme bra and was expecting a similar design.
To be fair, the bra is amazingly comfortable and light weight. Even thought I got the black bra, I still think it is a good summer bra because it is lightweight. It feels similar to a spacer bra. The fabric is also very smooth and won't show through t-shirts. The support is average.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bra is absolutely beautiful and gives a lot of lift! It creates nice, rounded cleavage without the "uniboob" look. The fit seemed very true to size as well. The material is thicker than I expected (in terms of warmth, not padding-which is minimal), so I don't think it's a good bra for the summer. My main complaint with this bra is the prominence of the vertical cup seams - they are visible under every top! For the price of this bra (which I got on sale), I would really expect flatter seams. Other than that, I think this is a beautiful, well-made bra.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I think the design needs some improvement. The clip is easy enough to get on the straps, but it's hard to keep it attached while putting the bra on. I try to hold it while getting everything in place. Once everything is on, it stays put. However, after only one use, one of the clips started to show cracks where the straps create some stress by pulling on the plastic.

The top edge of this bra show through every top I have. And the shape of the that edge looks very odd under clothing. All my v-necks and scoop necks are very thin fabric, so this really does not work for me. I expected much more for the cost. The parfait casey and jeanie cost much less and fit me much better -and still give great cleavage!
No, I do not recommend this product.

Beautiful and comfy! I love the lace and fit of these undies. However, I'm not a big fan of the completely sheer rear -would've preferred more lace or opacity.

The cup size was too small for me, so it's hard to give a good review. I normally wear 32DD in Wacoal, but it looks like I would need a larger (unavailable) cup size for this bra... I felt very smooshed. I returned it.

This is the first strapless bra that I actually like. I've been on a quest to find a good strapless for awhile. I literally tried on 10 strapless bras from different brands, sizes and places. This is the only one I decided to keep (after going down a band size, but keeping the cup size). So, I think it runs a little big. It stays up, is supportive, and give a nice shape, with the right amount of cleavage.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a very good supportive bra. It definitely stays up, but feels too "industrial" for me. I've been on a quest to find a good strapless bra, and literally tried on 10 different ones before before deciding on the freya deco (and the regular deco does not work for me). This one was second place. I think it would be perfect for someone with heavier breasts, but was too much coverage for me, and would not work for the dress I wanted to wear it with. This bra does work well for fuller breasts - I normally need to size up a cup size to avoid top spillage in strapless styles, but my normal Wacoal 32DD fit perfectly.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This one would work if they made it one size larger
By Ria11 from BC
I'm beginning to lose hope.
I have been looking for a stapless bra that can provide the support I unfortunately need while not creating lines or bulges beneath my clothes.
This is obviously an impossible task, but this bra came so close.
Every other strapless I have tried collapses under the weight of my breasts. No support. None.
This one was different. The 36I has some sort of boning in the cups, leading to a push-up effect that was capable of giving me the support I wanted. Unfortunately, the cups just don't come big enough. Bulge over the top. So I am out of luck yet again.
Sigh.
Could someone please ask them to make this one in a cup-size or two larger? Please?

Wacoal

Have you tried the Wacoal Red Carpet Strapless Bra? I've tried on A LOT of strapless bras, and it truly has superior support. The cups do come up a bit high and the back is very wide (4 hooks, i believe). I've also heard the Fantasie smoothing strapless works well for heavier breasts, but have not tried it. I know how frustrating searching for a good strapless can be. Good luck!

How does this bra's sizing compare with other Wacoal bras?

I'm between a 32DD and 32DDD and normally need to size up for strapless bras. However, I've also never found a strapless that fits right and stays up. I always get quadboob with strapless bras. So I'm hoping to give this one a try. Also, does this bra seem to give nice lift? Thanks!

Do the lace and seams on this bra make it quite visible under clothing?

I ask because the seams on my cleo by panache bra seem to be visible under nearly every top I wear. Thanks!
