I am a huge fan of Wacoal. I've tried most brands that make my size, and Wacoal is tops in comfort and quality. My two favorite bras are the "Hidden Elegance" and the "Bodysuede® Ultra Full Figure Seamless Underwire Bra (85814)". Unfortunately, even though these two models have been best sellers since they were created, Wacoal decided to phase them out. I inquired about it and found that stores were more interested in "newness", so they didn't want the tried and true - and loved - anymore. There was such an outcry from loyal customers that Wacoal decided to keep our favorite bras around. Yes, Wacoal, do listen to your customers. Women tend to like new and trendy when it comes to outerwear, but when we find bras that we love - we keep buying them - for years. Please Wacoal, don't discontinue our favorites, and don't change them. There is a reason we keep buying them. If anything, it would be nice to see more colors from our favorites, not fewer choices. If you want newness, try making our favorites in new colors.
Ladies, if you have a large bust, this bra is a wonderful choice. It is very supportive, but does not flatten you out. One thing I don't like about most minimizers is that they tend to make me look like a linebacker. My chest is large, the extra flesh has got to go somewhere - it is not going to disappear. This bra does not smoosh me into a monoboob. This bra is also so comfortable that I wear it to sleep. The wires don't poke me. If you like this bra, give the Bodysuede Ultra a try, too. I find that the Bodysuede Ultra gives me a better shape for daytime, but I prefer the firm support of the Hidden Elegance for bedtime use. Both bras are very supportive and give a beautiful shape.

Service and delivery is great, quick and easy. This is the only bra that I have purchased and worn for many years, it's the only one that fit's and works for me, especially being a "G" cup. I have been fitted numerous times over the past 10 - 15 years at many private as well as several well known high end department stores, only to spend hundreds of dollars on bras that end up sitting in my drawer. I really love this bra except for two things; first the price is a bit much, especially for working two jobs and still being at a somewhat lower income level. I feel very lucky if I'm able to get two new bras per year . . . I know, right. Secondly, I consistently have major issues with the wires eventually poking through. I hand wash my bras and let them air dry but I feel there is some type of flaw or weakness in the making or sewing when it comes to keeping the wires from poking through. It has happened several times in the front in the cleavage area but the majority of the time it's on either side up towards the armpit area. I've also had several of these bras where the wire itself can move anywhere from a half inch up to an inch in the enclosed area holding the wire. So with that being said, I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. I would love to hear back from Wacoal on the above mentioned issues and I would also be willing to be used as a "model" so to speak for getting a comfortable, proper fitting bra at a halfway decent price. Yes I would recommend this bra but with caution.

        I have been wearing minimizers since I was in my 20s and I can say: This is the one true Minimizer left on the market. Comfortable, gives a nice shape under any type of top, from button down to tanks.

        Wacoal, PLEASE reconsider your plans to discontinue this. Your customers (We endowed women) have given you hundreds of reviews and they are ALL good reviews. There is a reason for this. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. As another reviewer said add colors and bring back black! Don't don't don't discontinue it!

        After wearing this style for over 17 years, through weight losses and gains, it has been my go to style because it is comfortable, stylish and fits well!!!

            Comments about Wacoal Elegance Hidden Underwire Minimizer Bra:

            I wore Walcoal's old seamed lace minimizer for years before it was discontinued. I have tried every other high end brand minimizer on the market and have not found a comfortable fit. This is as close as you can get to my old favorite. The seam and lace provide a more comfortable and flattering fit for heavy, voluminous breasts, that get squeezed into a solid cup. As this bra is only available through Walcoal's website, my local bra stores were unaware that it even existed. Stock up!!

              This is a great bra. The minimized effect is excellent. It has wonderful support - the best there is in my opinion. I wish they would sell it in black again. It was perfect for my darker, slightly see through shirts.
