A good bra should be like a good boyfriend: supportive when needed, but not too clingy. Unfortunately, many bras are either tight to the point where you can’t breathe or too loose to offer any decent support.
Frustrating, isn’t it?
Yes, and lots of women can relate. Approximately 8 out of 10 women wear bras that are too big or small, which is alarming since globally, lingerie sales total around $30 billion per year.
Ladies, we’ve got to do better! Wacoal bras are a great solution for your dilemna, especially if you pick the right Wacoal bra for your specific needs.
Here’s the deal:
A properly fitting bra looks nice under your tees and tanks, but it also feels good. It may even have health benefits, like reducing your cancer risk. That’s definitely a plus!
So come on ladies, stop squeezing into that beat-up bra from years ago and invest in one of the best Wacoal bras on our list. You owe it to yourself - and your boobs - to find a Wacoal bra that fits comfortably!
Available for women with bra sizes ranging from C cups to G cups. Generally fits true to size.
Very few women have complaints about this bra, but a handful of them feel the bra needs more support for large cup sizes.
Style: This is a spacer underwire T-Shirt bra that offers full coverage. Its seamless cups are lightly padded with thin, lightweight fabric.
We love the bulge-smoothing sides that hide lumps and bumps under form-fitting shirts, plus the wide-center gore that separates our sisters rather than shoving them against each other.
Material: Polyester and spandex join forces to give this T-shirt bra a luxuriously smooth feeling. A tiny bow on the front lends subtle femininity to this classic bra.
Support: This T-shirt bra gently lifts and rounds your breasts so they look incredible under tees and tanks. Most women feel this bra offers plenty of support, but a handful of ladies say it needs more. Some say it could benefit from wider straps, but the straps are already fairly wide.
Comfort: Wear this T-shirt bra all day and enjoy the smooth material and comfy fit. Just be prepared for it to migrate slightly if you have a physically demanding job or attempt to hit the gym without changing into a sports bra.
Price: You’ll shell out around $55 for this popular T-shirt bra unless you find it on sale. We’ve seen it as low as $30.
Perfect for weddings, formal charity events, and summery strap-free dresses. A practical silicone neckline and hidden stays keep you from starring in your own peep show.
Most women love this bra, but a few confess that it gets uncomfortable after a while.
Style: Make a memorable entrance in this strapless underwire bra made just for busty women (you know, the ladies most bra makers forget about when they create strapless bras). There are bulge-concealing sides, and the back also hides flab.
Not interested in a strapless bra? This one converts to four different styles: Halter, criss-cross, one-shoulder, and traditional.
Material: This bra gets its signature smoothness from nylon with a hint of spandex. The stretch foam cups mold to your body shape, and a silicone neckline keeps the bra where it belongs. There are also hidden stays that keep the back of the bra, plus each side, in place.
Support: This offers great support for a strapless bra, although some extra-busty reviewers (generally with cup sizes H or G) say it just doesn’t work for them.
Comfort: This is a comfortable bra that almost always fits true to size. If it feels too tight, go up a size and see if that helps.
The material is smooth, and women say the hidden stays and silicone neckline don’t feel weird.
Price: Expect to pay between $45 and $65 for this celeb-worthy bra depending on where you buy it. It transforms into 4 different styles, so you can get a lot of wear for your money.
Beautiful design, unlike many of the plain full-figure bras available from other brands. Stays snugly in place as it supports heavy breasts.
A small number of women say the underwire gets uncomfortable and the seams split easily. Going up a size may help.
Style: This is a full-figure underwire bra with two-part seamed cups and a leotard back. Sheer mesh and Chantilly lace extend from the top of each cup, projecting a feminine vibe. We haven’t seen many full-figure bras as beautiful as this one.
The figure-flattering back and sides gently smooth away the evidence of skipped gym sessions. This is a sexy bra that easily transitions from the workplace to date night.
Material: Most of the bra is made from nylon and spandex, but the lace is 100% nylon. This is a lightweight bra that gently, yet snugly, hugs your assets.
Not really a fan of how the fabric feels? Some reviewers say it gets softer after a few washes.
Support: This full-figure bra provides the support you need, whether you’re a 34C or a 34I. The thick straps remain in place with little, if any, slippage.
The straps are adjustable, and so is the band. It’s easy to make this vintage-style bra work for your body.
Comfort: The majority of women who own this bra swear it’s super comfortable, but some say the underwire bothers them. Check out Wacoal’s wire-free options, like the soft-cup Awareness bra, if you hate underwire.
Price: For around $60, you can treat your curvaceous body to this lacy bra. It comes in 6 colors.
Flattering fit for petite body types. Comfortable construction and smooth fabric.
It only comes in one color: Sand. Several ladies say they wish other hues were available.
Style: This is an underwire push-up bra. After all, boobs of all sizes can benefit from a little lift.
Removable bra inserts let you go padding-free if you choose. A traditional back clasp secures the bra while you wear it.
Material: The cups are lined with 100% cotton, which helps prevent chafing and itching. Cotton is also a very breathable fabric.
The rest of the cups are made from a nylon-Lycra blend, while the lace band is crafted from nylon, polyester, and Lycra.
Support: Petite-framed ladies praise the support offered by this Wacoal bra. Underwire curves around the bottom of each push-up cup, providing ample lift while shaping your breasts.
Overall, the support level is better than a bralette but not as good as a sports bra.
Comfort: This bra is super comfy as long as you don’t mind underwire. Adjustable straps prevent the dreaded shoulder digging associated with some bras, while the smooth material feels good against your skin.
If you prefer something without underwire, check out the b.tempt'd Lace Kiss Bralette on our list. It goes up to size XL, but it’s perfect for small-busted women.
Price: Around $52, which makes this one of the pricier bras on our list. It’s worth the price if you need a quality bra and you wear a AA, A, B, or C cup.
Gives breasts a nice lift while holding them in place. Made of lightweight material with no padding.
To put it bluntly, this bra isn’t sexy. It has a simple design and only comes in two colors.
Style: This is a classic underwire minimizer bra. It’s available in sand, which is a beige-like color, and black. The seamless cups are unlined - a feature many women love but a few hate.
There are no fun designs or feminine accents, unless you count the tiny bow on the front. This bra has a very basic style, so you might want to consider another Wacoal minimizer if you’re looking for something sexier.
Material: This minimizer bra is made from polyester, spandex, and nylon. The material is lightweight and breathable, although a handful of ladies complain it’s too thin.
Support: Perk up your breasts while reducing their size at the same time when you don this Wacoal minimizer bra. It reduces your bustline by up to one inch, and you can wear it under everything from T-shirts to fitted dresses.
Comfort: Super comfy, which is surprising for a minimizer bra. Women love how it conceals their boobage without smashing their twins into their chests. The underwire is also surprisingly comfortable, even if you wear this bra all day.
Price: You’ll shell out around $50 for this minimizer bra from Wacoal.
Slides easily over your head so you don’t have to fumble with clasps. Adjustable straps let you create the right fit for your body.
Sheer design offers little, if any, nipple coverage for most ladies. Sizes run from small to extra large rather than focusing on traditional cup/band sizes, so it can be confusing to figure out what you need.
Style: This is a wire-free, clasp-free bralette that slides over your head like a tank top. A handful of wearers complain that it’s tricky to slide into this bralette, but the majority of women find it super easy.
There are separate cups, so you don’t have to worry about a uniboob. Both cups are unlined.
Material: The usual nylon and spandex blend. The material is sheer and lace-like, so you may want to avoid this bralette if you’re looking for something modest. Some ladies gripe that it’s too revealing and offers little-to-no nipple coverage.
Support: Surprisingly decent for a wire-free bra. It doesn’t support your breasts as well as an underwire bra if you’re busty, but it does offer plenty of support for A, B, and C cups. You can still wear it if you’re a D or DD, but it might be better as a sleep bra.
Comfort: This is one of the comfiest bras on our list as long as you choose the right size. Sizes range from small to extra large; go up a size if you want a loose fit.
Adjustable elastic straps let you find your perfect fit. There are no clasps or hooks to mess with, so you can get dressed - or undressed - quickly.
Price: For just $18, you can buy one of the 13 colors available for this cute bralette. There are also three styles of matching panties available: bikini, thong, and hipster. Prices for panties typically range from $5 to $15.
It’s hard to find a wireless bra with a wide range of sizes, but the Awareness underwire bra covers sizes from 34C all the way up to 44H. Some colors even go up to 40I. This is a versatile bra suitable for different breast shapes, including round breasts, uneven breasts, and pendulous breasts.
Very few people have anything bad to say about this best-selling Wacoal bra, but a handful of ladies complain that sometimes the straps slip and the band feels too tight.
Style: The best-selling Awareness bra is an underwire bra with wide straps, a leotard back, and seamless cups. A small flag on the back, near the clasps, features the breast cancer awareness ribbon.
Numerous reviewers rave about the large straps, and we totally agree with them. Women say the straps don’t dig into their shoulders or slide around during movement like bras with thinner, weaker straps. This is great news, especially for busty gals who don’t want boobage popping out every time they breathe.
There is still a small percentage of ladies who say the straps move around too much, but it’s possible that choosing a different bra size or adjusting the straps might help.
Material: Support your girls with a smooth blend of nylon and Spandex when you wear this silky-soft Wacoal bra. The fabric features a jacquard Calla lily pattern that is a feminine, non-itchy alternative to lace.
Support: Almost as supportive as your BFF after a brutal breakup with Mr. Wrong. It’s easy to get the support you need because Wacoal offers such a wide range of sizes for this figure-flattering bra. You can choose from sizes ranging from 34C to 40I, so you don’t have to cram your twins into cups that are too tight or the wrong shape.
Speaking of shape, the cups on this bra work for nearly every breast type. Uneven breasts find balance, while round breasts get the support they need without being squished into poorly designed cups. You can also wear this bra if you have pendulous breasts, East/West breasts, or a chest with shallow tops and full bottoms.
Inner side slings in the cups add extra support for busty women, while the thick straps we raved about earlier help hold everything snugly in place. You probably shouldn’t run a marathon in this bra, but you can definitely run errands in it. It’s also ideal for the office if you prefer great coverage over having your cleavage peek out of your blouse.
Comfort: Hundreds of women say this is a comfy bra, and more than 90% of them claim it fits true to size. The smooth material and true-to-size fit each play a role in the comfort factor.
Price: Wacoal’s regular price for this bra is $65, but it often goes on sale. You can find it as low as $33 on Amazon, but expect to pay more than $100 there if you’re looking for a hard-to-find color or size.
