I have not found any sports bra that completely eliminates bounce, but this comes the closest. I hesitated to order an underwire sports bra, because in general I hate underwires, but this is comfortable. Great support. I will even wear this as a Tshirt bra as the cups are nice and smooth, and the bra gives great lift. The only drawback is that because it is a compression bra for sports, the chest does end up looking a little smushed, but only a little. I love this bra. Best sports bra I have found.

I was fitted for this bra 2 yrs ago and it is by far the best I have ever owned..and I have had a few over the years ! This bra keeps you secure, [jogging, tennis, horseback ]supported and feels like you aren't wearing one, at least for me it does. I am of average ht and wt for my age ~ unfortunately just abundantly supplied. The sizing accurate. I do recommend it. Alamom from north Alabama

Have been wearing this brand and style for about four years. I can count on it for great support, plus no jiggle and no straps digging into my shoulders. DF from Phoenix

Could have been a great bra. I understand why the reviews are good. Great support. However, for me the band was just a bit too tight. The cups were perfect, but I decided to return for something more comfortable. Heather from Denver, CO

This is the best sports bra I've ever owned. For a women with my size chest, it is hard to find a sports bra that actually allows me to run. The Wacoal sports bra does this. I can run without pain for long periods of time. It is a great work out bra and it works well if you just want to go for a walk or even a run. This is really the only sports bra that has allowed me to feel supported when I work out. One feature that I really do appreciate is having the underwire on the outside instead of on the inside. At first, I thought it was odd to have it on the outside, but I really do think it plays a significant role in why it is so comfortable. I can't rave enough about this sports bra. It has given me the confidence and the comfort to go workout. Lauren from Bismarck, ND, USA

Hands down the best sports bra I've ever owned. There is nice separation of breasts with middle fabric, and great support and shape from the underwire and seamless material. Best fitting bra I've ever owned! Nicole from Canada

This bra is the best workout bra i have ever owned! The bra encapsulates properly and is extremely comfortable. Size is true to fit, and i am not fiddling with the bra during strength training or cardio workouts like i have with other bras purchased. Excellent and would recommend to anyone searching for a supportive, underwire sports bra! Great job Wacoal! Rosie from Thousand Oaks, CA

Very comfortable, but not quite a perfect fit..I wore it, so didnt return it...the wires that meet in the middle stick out and buldges under my shirt...dont think it is noticeable, though..I suspect not exactly the correct size.

HerRoom Response: It sounds like the cup size you purchased is too small due to the fact that the wires do not tack to your body in the center. Please check out our Bra Fitting page to help you find a size that fits properly. Marilyn from Encinitas, CA

I thought this bra absolutely fit like a dream, and was extremely comfortable. I didn't keep it though, because I want a little padding or something to buffer the 'high beams' when I get cold (or not). The two layers of fabric in the cup wasn't thick enough for me. Josie from Minneapolis, MN USA

Is it possible to love a sports bra? This is far and away the best I have ever had. I love it so much I have just worn it 3 days in a row as my daytime, workaday bra, which works fine as long as you're not wearing a low neckline, as this bra comes up VERY high in the front. I wish I could wear it all the time. Extraordinary. I don't care if I never use it for sports. Seriously. nightbow from Massachusetts, USA

This is the most comfortable sports bra! I wear it when I am on the treadmill and in yoga class. Being a 36DD, I was always self-conscious about the way my 'girls' bounced when on the treadmill, making me the woman the guys would stare at! This the best supporting bra for everday wear too, and at 62 years old, I have tried MANY ! Kathryn from Jenkintown

Most comfortable and flattering. This is the closest I could find to my favorite, and discontinued, Lily of France sport bra. it offers a lot of coverage, which I like. I was happy with all three Wacoal styles, but this is the one I'll purchase more of for every day wear. A special thanks to Herroom for all the educational materials, especially regarding sizing. I refused at first to believe the results of the size calculator, but it turns out it is correct! Marjie from Oregon

This is the best sports bra I have ever owned! I love love love it! Wacoal just seems to fit me perfectly; I was a little "concerned" about the "encapsulation" in the descrlption- thought that would translate into "squooshed flat". It really does not, at all! There is, quite simply, no movement from the girls, no matter what impact exercise I'm doing- it's just so comfortable, that I wear it for everyday! I think having the underwire externally located is brilliant. . . Just a great bra! I did have to go up a size, but that may be an age and weight thing. . . Daisy from Oklahoma

I have searched so long for a good sports bra that is comfortable and keeps the girls separate with great support. Wacoal made it happen. I bought two of these and will purchase more because out of an entire drawer of sports bras, this bra is the one I always go to. I can barely feel the underwire because it is nicely padded, as are the shoulder straps. Brenda from Fallbrook, CA, USA

This bra is fantastic! It looks a bit weird at first, but it is extremely comfortable and offers excellent support. The fabric is very soft and I was able to wear it all day with total comfort. It is very supportive and I can definitely use it for jogging. Great bra! Amy

I love the support of this bra. My only complaint is the straps - after first wash, when I put the bra on, it slides out of the strap position and I have to get someone to slide it back in while I have the bra on. Very frustrating as I have to wait til I get to work and hope that it doesn't pop off before I get some assistance. Susan from Jacksonville/NC/USA

The Bra fits just fine, in terms of comfore and cup size. However, the middle of the Bra where the under wire comes up in the front stick out and makes my clothes look like that is something in my chest. If that makes sense. I am not sure if the cup size is too little or too big??? Carmelita from Chicago

I love Wacoal bras. I live in them. I was really hoping that this sports bra would work for me, however I could barely get the band closed and the straps were way too short for me. I couldn't move with it on, which makes it useless to me. Back to the drawing board...On the plus side - the underwire being on the outside is very unique.

HerRoom Response:While Sports Bras do tend to run snug to give you the compression you need while exercising, It sounds like it may be time to be re-fitted. Please check out our Bra Fitting page to help you find a size that fits properly. Shannon from Long Island City, NY

I bought this originally at Dillards- saved $18 thru HerRoom. I have never bought a bra onlie before because worries about not fitting right and sending back.. Fast delivery and perfect bra. This is the best bra I have ever bought-seamless sides, smooth front and shapes perfectly. Just love this Wacoal bra!!! Theresa from ALta WY
