I love this bra..but there is no padding so everyone can tell when I am cold. If this bra was made with some padding in the front, I would never buy any other bra. It would be my bra for life. Jackie from East Peoria IL

I just ordered 2 more of these. Why? Of the 10 bras I ordered, this is the only one that provides a nice shape in the front without too much projection, no uni-boob look with excellent separation, comfortable straps that stay in place, and decent back-fat control (not perfect, but WAY better than any other I've tried so far. I totally agree with all other reviewers about there not being enough fabric on the end of the hook strap - that's a silly oversight for such an expensive bra! And, the elastic on the bottom band is narrow and digs in. Still, this is my everyday bra because of the support and comfort. Although, you can't really wear it with any clothing that is the least bit low cut or revealing. Deborah from Lake Tahoe, CA

I wear a size 38DDD in the 85567 (breast cancer bra) and a 40DDD in style #855104. Which size do you think I should consider for the above bra? I do not like to have any scratching in the back area. This seems to be the major complaint of most of the women reviewers...

HerRoom Response: Thank you for this question. We have forwarded it on to Wacoal for a response.

Wacoal Response: ] We would suggest going with the 38DDD that she wears in Awareness. It is a firmer fit and more familiar to sport. They are also both molded bras and the 855104 is cut and sew. Judy

I LOVE this bra. If it wasn't $64 I would get 5 of them - one for every day of the week! Susan from Los Angeles

Good fit. Only good for medium to low impact activities. I will wear it more as an everyday bra than a sports bra. I will be purchasing additional colors. Laurie from Oregon

Useful bra for sports and casual wear. Comfortable, attractive fit. I'm reliably 34DD in Wacoal and this fits as the other Wacoal do. Anon from New York, NY

This is the best sports bra I've ever owned. I'm small-boned, but large-breasted and it has always been difficult for me to find a good sports bra. In addition I'm 53 years old, so gravity has had an effect by now. And I want certain things in my bras: Separation of the cups and underwires. Oh, and good supporting material, of course. But don't like a seam in the front ot the bra. This bra fits true to size and wears wonderfully! Petra from Colorado Springs, CO. USA

I ordered three different Wacoals because of the rave reviews, the other two were not memorable. This one, however is phenomenal! The sizing is correct, the support phenomenal, gives a great shape and is comfortable. The only downside is the roughness at the back by the closure; needs more material there. I'd definitely consider wearing it for normal wear, not just when I work out. I will re-order this bra! Best sports bra I've ever had! AJ from Alaska

This is a medium impact sports bra on me. It is really comfortable, but does not completely eliminate movement. Karen from WA

Second bra of this type & I love it. Only down side is the catch in the back, it does scratch a bit but the greatness of the fit, look, ease to wear overrides that little irritation. I am going to buy more and use them as every day wear they are so comfortable. Toni from Aurora, OR

This is a great sports bra. It is one that gives support & shape (no uni look) and is very comfortable. There does need to be a little more material on the closures so that you do not get an irritation. Toni from Oregon

Very supportive in the front and fits well--wish there was another strap or something across the back--I feel as if it pulls my shoulders forward at times. However, it again is very supportive and it's nice that it gives the girls a natural look (no uniboob with this bra). Julie from Nebraska

This is the greatest sports bra I have owned; and I've owned quite a few brands. Great fit and support, large enough cups. The only thing getting used to was the fastening band across the back; slight irritation at the beginning but after two weeks of wear, broken in; they needed to add a bit more cloth when wearing on first hook so it wouldn't press against the back.

Wacoal sports bras are the only ones that have ever really held my breasts in place during a workout. They provide the best support of any bra I've tried, and the fabric wicks away your sweat to keep you dry and comfortable. Amanda from Vienna, VA, USA

The bra fit is terrific. However the hook closure stitching at the end is so rough that I developed a wound at the point. I bought 2 bras and have the same issue with both. I had to bring in the bras to a seamstress to redo the stitching which required modification of the curvature of the hook closure section. I paid an additional $10 for each repair. For $65 bra, this is pretty unacceptable. sue from New York

You have no idea how happy I am to have found a supportive, breathable yet feminine sports bra. I am able to run, lift, golf, kickbox, etc. with only one bra. THANK YOU! kate from portsmouth

I hesitated in ordering this bra because of the price. But it fits in all the right places! I'm very pleased. The underwire is on the outside which is a great idea! Annie from Sterling, VA

It has taken me a long time to find a bra for my size that makes the "girls" look perky again!! Gives great support and wonderful shape. I have worn Wacoal in the past, but not this style. I will be ordering several more of these. Great shape and smooth under any type of garment. One slight drawback is that it is slightly highcut so when I wear a V neck or button front blouse, the bra peeks out. But no big deal! I'm just glad my breasts aren't at my waist anymore!

The Wacol bra is extremely comfortable and supportive. The only problem that I am having is the last three bra hooks. At times, I can feel them rubbing my back. There should be more material to buffer this. judy

Finally a bra all of me fits into! The cup size is more than adequate. I think the band size runs small. This is not the most comfortable bra I have ever worn - but it makes me look "fit". The shoulder straps are wonderful. I plan to buy three more soon. Blondie from Midland, Texas
