Wacoal 'How Perfect' Underwire Bra
Great summer bra
This is a great summer bra! Perfect to wear with strappy tops and camisole types. I needed something that conceals the back flab like a Spanx bra, but with thinner traps and flattering support for my B's. This bra is it!
Firm foam cups, runs small
I didn't realize from the description that this bra has stiff molded cups. Not what I wanted. I usually fit in 36DD Wacoal and Chantal bras, but this one was too small. Returned.
Too Big and Too Small
I had read that something like 60% of American women take the wrong bra size and I needed new bras so I decided to see the personal bra fitter at the local Nordstroms. I am a small B cup but have a broad back so always wear a 36 or 38 and wanted a t-shirt type bra. The woman told me I was a C cup and a 34. I thought, "No way" but let her bring some in, including this one. The cup had folds-it was clearly too big and the strap rode up high and dug into my back just accentuating even more my back fat. Surprisingly, the woman insisted it was the right size. I asked her if she could bring in this bra in a 36B and she said they didn't make it in that size. In fact, the store had no t-short styles in a 36/38B. So I went to another store that is 3 letters in length and starts with a G and ends with a P and tried on a t-shirt bra in a B cup which they had in 36, 38 and 40. The 36B was perfect. I bought 3. I just find it strange that Nordstroms has virtually no 36 or 38 B bras. I think they are missing out on selling to women like myself-small breasted but not thin.
