Fits like a glove. When I do yoga/weight training or cardio I never have to worry about falling out or bounding around. They are so comfortable I wear them as my everyday bra. Christine from Egg Harbor Township, NJ

Great sports bra. I do some intensive classes and weights and there is no bounce. Provides excellent support without mashing my chest. Debra from New York

I still have to wear two sports bras when I run, but my Wacoal Sports Underwire Bra keeps me from having to wear three. I like that the underwire is on the outside of the bra because it doesn't rub up against sweaty skin as I exercise. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Very uncomfortable! Either I bought the wrong size or something, but this is not a comfortable sport bra. I wear Wacoal all the time, but this was not a good purchase!

Wacoal Response: Thank you for making us aware and we do sincerely wish for your satisfaction not disappointment. As this is our #1 selling sport bra style we believe this can be easily resolved with a size change. 9 out of 10 women are in a band too large and cup too small, and should re-measure at least once per year as women’s bodies fluctuate especially in the breasts.

Although attractive and comfortable, I would not agree with the rating for high-impact. Admittedly it is difficult to find a good high-impact sports bra in my size 40DD but others I tried were certainly more supportive during my jump/bounce test. As other reviewers commented, the underwire on the "street side" creates a visible line under the bust which is not only unsightly, but also kinda embarrassing. I prefer a smoother appearance.

Comfortable firm support in a 38H. The mid bust underwires don't stay against the chest wall and show through clothing - even through 2 or 3 layers, but it is worth it to have a supporting well fitting bra for active sports and running. Large sized sports bras are hard to find, and an unsightly lump is a small price to pay for no jiggle support! Iris from Oregon

This bra seems to have a strange sizing to it. I ordered a 38D, it was too tight & small, ordered a 40DD, it was too big in the band & the wire stuck out in the center. So, not sure how I'm supposed to fit into it. The bra itself seemed fine. I liked the 4 closure back & the straps seem like they would be comfortable.

Wacoal Response: Anytime you go up in the band size you must go down in the cup size so if a 38D was too small, you should order either a 38DD or a 40C. Try re-measuring yourself to make sure the size is correct. Visit HerRoom's Bra Fit Center for many resources to find your best bra fit, including a bra size calculator. Debbie

Overall I really like this sports bra -- I had been looking and looking for something for "larger" women that need a bra for workouts. It's comfortable, the straps stay up...the only complaint is that I think the underwire goes up pretty high in the center. Other than that, which given how hard it is to find something this size that works? I'm very happy with my purchases (I bought two). Michigan from Niles, MI

This is a supportive bra, but the center wires come up too high on my chest. When I sit it moves up even higher?

I wish I could give it more stars! I am on the site to order a second one. I have tried several types of sports bras, and this one is by far the best. I have a large cup size, and struggle with fit. This bra is snug without being uncomfortable or too tight, doesn't cause the dreaded "uni-boob," and has held up well so far (I wear it almost every day, so it has been washed a lot, too). I am a runner, and this gives terrific support. Highly recommend! Jenny from Wells, Maine

You can't tell from the picture, but the underwire is actually a separate piece to where you can actually put your hand through it. It's really weird. I felt no support at all. I did a quick run in place bounce test and it was out of control, super painful. Lindsey from CA

Awesome bra! I own about 6 and gifted a few to my sister. I love this bra, it holds the girls in place, separately. Whatever I am doing there is limited movement due to the no elastic shoulder straps. Even horseback riding the bouncing is much reduced. Initially purchased just for riding but soon it became my everyday bra. I'm in love with the all day comfort and cupped feel it gives. Well worth cost! Amy from Indiana

Love these bras. Worn them for years. My only reason for not giving 5 stars- the wires come up very high in the center front. I would like to see them shorter, so that the wires hug the chest in tighter. Ron from The Villages, FL

I have been measured as a 32G. This bra fits true to size, and is comfortable to wear. I have a similar bra by Donna Karan in a 34DDD that fits similarly. That bra has narrower band in the back, but supports the breasts from below better than this Wacoal bra, where the weight seem to hang from the shoulders more. Meg from Philadelphia

Fantastic fit! Really lightweight but very supportive as other Wacoal bras I've chosen. Love underwire placement on outside of bra to prevent chafing! Genevieve from Annandale,VA, USA

Better than expected. Sizing is accurate in band and cup. Support is great, strap adjustment is awesome. It can be worn as a daily bra. Love the fact that there are not seams in the cup that can show through shirts. Christa from California

It's difficult to determine how a sports bra will support and feel until you are actually doing the activity. By that time all tags are off and the purchase has been made. I am so pleased with this bra. The fit, comfort and support was what I hoped it would be and more than I had been accustomed to with other brands. I love the shoulder strap adjustment as it cannot slip due to activity. I would recommend this bra to women who want excellent feel and support but do not require padding. Lucinda from Pottstown, PA
