Awesome low-impact bra for this double-D. I use it for yoga, and it stays perfectly in place through all kinds of twists and contortions and with massive amounts of sweating. No more adjusting my bra all the way through class! ACD from Cambridge, MA

I bought this to wear for yoga class, low impact but lots of moving. It's fabulous and I never give it a thought. Sometimes, I keep on it all the rest of the day! Dd from Portland, ME

I really like this bra for the fit, the comfortable smooth lining and the control. The only complaint I have about it is that the straps, which shorten with hooks, are hard to tuck in properly when they're on the shortest setting; I wish there was a velcro spot to hold them.

Fantastic fit! Very comfortable. The strap adjustment is a little odd, but would not stop me from buying another one. Perfect for aerobics and dance. Jennifer from Lakeland, TN, Shelby

I own 3 of these bras and would not trade them for anything. I started out looking for a sports bra, but these have now turned into my "T-Shirt" bras. No more back pain, and I don't feel "smushed". Britni from Lake Charles, LA

The cups on this bra run a bit large. So, I returned mine for a 34C. It hasn't arrived yet, so I can't review it. But, the one I did get felt great. Very comfortable and holds everything in place. LizB from San Clemente, CA

No jiggle, very comfortable and unlike other uniboob sports bras, gives great definition. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Very comfortable bra. Still doesn't hold the girls still during bouncing exercises. And for some reason, it doesn't lie flat against the breast bone. But I definitely feel supported and held in place for most activities. Deb from UT

This is the best bra I have ever purchased. Very comfortable, especially for the larger cup. Well made. It minimizes as well as supports. It is also nice looking. I will buy this over and over. Worth the price! I went one cup size larger and glad I did. Back fits perfect and for a small back (32) that is difficult to find. I would highly recommend it to anyone - and have!

This bra is very comfortable and I will definitely wear it when I am walking on the treadmill or lifting weights or light/medium cardio. My girls bounced a little too much when running or doing heavy cardio. Still great, nice material, but a little bounce. tamara from rsm, ca

This bra was just not supportive enough for my exercise classes-too much bouncing when I run and jump. So I returned it and am trying some different styles. Karen from NC

Not my favorite, but it's okay. For the price I preferred the Freya Active or a better price, the Moving Comfort Maia, either wins for comfort and support hands down. Both of those support me better. I had to size down to a 34DD (from my usual 34F) to get a firmer hold, but it's still not quite the hold that I prefer. (FYI: I go down to a 34D or DD in all my sports bras.) I'm going to use it for the days I lift weights, but use one of my other bras for biking and other vigorous activity.

HerRoom Response: We don't suggest this strategy. Manufacturers build sports bras to support your true bra size. As we state on this bra, in your size it is a medium impact sports bra. Venesa from Maryville, TN

After a breast reduction I have been struggling to find a bra that doesn't irritate the scars under my breasts which are very sensitive to material, both in underwire and non-wired bras. The wire on this bra is on the outside rather than up against the skin, and the material that touches my skin is silky and so I don't suffer from irritation anymore. I am so happy to find a comfortable, perfect fitting bra that also gives me good shaping and support. Caryn from Albuquerque, NM, USA

My favorite bra, not just for workouts, but for everyday as well. No uniboob look. Looks great under t shirts. Somewhat of a minimizer, which to me is a good thing. Downside is that it comes up very high on the chest, so nothing even slightly low cut. Smooth, supportive & wicks moisture wonderfully! (No more under breast rashes in the summer!)

This is a nice sports bra. It gives a snug fit in the band which is what you need with large breast so you don't feel like you are going to fall out the bottom. The four hook closure in the back keeps things from riding up. I feel very much contained in this bra. It doesn't give quite as much bounce support as I would have hoped, but I understand that with large breasts that becomes more difficult. Overall I really like this bra. It gives nice shape and separation of the breasts. I also think it helps to make my breasts not look quite as large. Lotte from United States

I love most of the Wacoal bras but was ordering without trying this on. Due to your customer service people, I was able to pick the right size and I am very happy with the support this bra gives. I wanted to use it for heavy duty walking and my Curves class and it has enough support for both. Judy from Grand Rapids Michigan

Quite unhappy...!! This bra looks better on the website than it fits... I am very disappointed. As much as this item cost, it definitely was not worth the price. It is unfortunate I removed the tags... Most of my workout wear include tanks with normal straps. This bra has very wide straps that are wider than my tanks. As a result, I have only wore this bra once. Also, it lays so high that the top part of the cups are visible. Not attractive... In addition, being that it is not flesh toned, but lighter, it's straps are more noticeable when they peak through than my other nude colored bras.

Overall, I am very disappointed in this purchase. As previously mentioned, for the price paid it is definitely not a good sports bra. I will be sticking with my Lilyette for the time being. I do not recommend this bra for the gym or for those women who like to workout.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. This bra is designed for high impact sports As such, it needs to be full coverage and have comfortable straps. Ramona

Fantastic support, wonderful shape, Excellent comfort, great sweat wicking and easy to adjust. Smooth profile under clingy outerwear. No you can't wear plunging cleavage dresses with this, but wow...I haven't been able to run in a bra that didn't squish my boobs into an uncomfortable sausage shape since...well...about 7th grade. Even my daughter, who has more curves than ten miles of bad road loves this model bra. The underwire being separate from the cloth is genius...the extra padding around it makes it so comfortable to wear. Recommend, recommend, recommend. cynthia from belleville, illinois, usa
