Thank you for your feedback.
Their lingerie dept. had an experienced fitter and I was fit with this brand and it worked perfectly for me.
It is true to size, has great "lift" and I bought 2 more becuase I like it so much.
They fit well and I am pleased with my purchase.

    I absolutely love the look this bra creates. I do not find it to cause "cone boobs", although I can see how if someone perhaps was trying to squeeze into a too small cup it might have that effect. My natural cleavage is close, and the bra did not space me too far apart.

    That said, this is not a cleavage creating low cut top type of bra. It does not push up, and is not like a balcony or half cup style bra that creates a more rounded shape. This bra brings everything straight forward. If you're looking for projection, this is great bra. It has a two part cup, with the seam going horizontally across the middle. I personally do not care for molded seamless cup bras.

    The bra is so feminine for a full cup style bra. I'd purchased it for everyday type wear and think its lovely for that. It might not appear super sexy, but under clothing it certainly creates a super sexy profile. The matching panties are very feminine as well.

    I have this bra in black, heather pink, and also in cappuccino, and feel that the cappuccino is the prettiest. I rarely reach for the black, I wish it was all black. The black is black lace over a sheer white netting, while the cappuccino has a nude/taupe type net under the lace that makes the bra appear more sheer, as the skin looks to be more exposed, even though its really not. The pink is a nice pastel pink (more about color choices below).

    This bra will show at the top if you have a low cut or sort of low but wide neckline.

    One thing I've noticed is that these bras tend to feel tight in the band. You might want to consider ordering "sister sizing" (go up a back size and down a cup size) if you're undecided. For reference I have a 31.5" rib cage, and most often wear a 34G (US and UK sizing).

    Size: 36DDColor: Heather Pink Verified Purchase
    I have bought two of these bras. They fit a larger bosom very well. The embroidery is really pretty, varied..i might say old school, like the 60's on the wrong side of town. Very sexy, very 24 hours from Tulsa. ha. give away my age here.
    And for some reason they bra does not put all the weight on your shoulders. Holds the breasts high without pushing them out. I recommend it, but be sure you know your size. you can try this bra on in Macys or Nordstroms for size. I did notice a slightly different... texture to the one bought at the dept. store and the one bought on Amazon. Like the embroidery was just a bit flayed on the pink one. Perhaps they wash them or put some product on them at the store..

    The 'girls' are happy positioned front and center, no under-arm spill. Totally comfortable well-fitting, excellent shaping. I don't like the current rounded style shaping, too matronly-looking. I want to see the model's profile so I'd know what I can expect, can't envision that in the straight-on view.

    Unfortunately, pretty as it is... I have to send it back. The bra itself is beautiful, but I guess when they call it "retro chic", they were referring to its shape and not its design. This bras has a very definite "conical" shape to the cups that I personally do not like. Wacoal bras so far as I have known are really good bras and there others that I really like. Just not this one. If the description had explained a little more what they meant by "retro chic" I would not have wasted my time.
    Thus the three stars and not the five I have given other Wacoals.

    I believe that this product was a second, this is the third bra that I have had. The first two I bought at Dillards, I have had them for over a year. This one ripped on the lace immediately, but I still wore it. However in less than two months it has fallen apart! Not the same quality as the ones I purchased in Dillards. At least I can return the product at Dillards if it falls apart. I will purchase this same bra, but I will go back to Dillards

    Size: 38GColor: Black Verified Purchase
    Best bra I've ever owned, I own 2. Bought one at Macy's for 60 and one on Amazon for 45. I wear a 38g and bras that are comfortable in this size are hard to come by. Do not put in wash or dryer. Wash by hand or in a bag, on a delicate cycle. Hang dry. The washer will ruin the lace and noting of the bra. And this will help them last much longer, I've owned mine for over a year. I can wear this all day no problems and more importantly my breast look lifted. They don't look smashed back like they normally do in a minimizer bra. They look good as perky as one can get in my size. The bra does make them slightly pointed, but not too much. I would buy these again and again.

    I have a hard time finding a bra that fits and an even harder time finding one that is comfortable. This bra is both, and I'm amazed. At first, I found it much too scratchy, but after a few washings with long soaks it is fine. This bra really provides a lot of support! FYI - I'm guessing that this bra runs one cup size larger than normal. Frankly, I'm not sure there is such a thing as "normal" these days. Sizes vary greatly by both brand and within brands, so if you find something that fits it's best to buy many!

    Anyway, I can't believe how comfy and sexy this bra is. Yes, it provides a lot of lift and a somewhat conical retro shape. If I wore tight fitting clothes I might not like it, but I don't. I can wear a button down shirt without looking dowdy with this bra on, and I'm thrilled about that. It's no small thing for a big busted woman in her 50's.
