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 loved this bra so much I now wear for active support and daily. I love the fact it has adjustable straps like no other bra I have seen. Amazing!!! Christa from Lancaster

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

I have purchased this brand and style for many years, best bra on the market in my view. Supports and is comfortable for hours! Love the colors they are coming out with! Keep it up...no pun intended! Linda from Hanover, NH USA

I've owned this bra previously and it stands up the best of all the brands I try. The underwire has never 'escaped its containment'. I really like the adjustments located in the straps. While its published as a sports bra, I've only used it for every day use. Nancy

This is a very comfortable bra. I agree with other reviewers that the top of the underwire comes up very high in the middle, and can poke out a bit and show with smooth clothing. I am somewhat short in the torso, so this might not be a problem for taller people. I found that if I loosened the straps one notch, it alleviated the issue. I will mostly wear this for exercise/yoga, but would find it comfortable enough to wear daily if wearing a compatible top (high-necked). The fabric feels luxuriously smooth. Did okay wicking perspiration during exercise. Amy from Michigan

Well-made, but I felt something rubbing on the left back of bra. Also, the support was fair and not smooth; there were some creases on the the front. Barbara from Long Island, NY

Really love this bra. It does its job very well, is comfortable, and is a beautiful color. There is very little extra fabric on the fastener pieces, making it somewhat difficult to fasten in the back. I fasten it in front and then turn it around. It's comfortable enough to wear all day.

I originally purchased this bra for Zumba but found that it was not supportive enough. However, it is super comfortable and flattering for every day. I have had 2 surgeries this spring and found this bra indispensable during my convalescence. I would give it 5 stars but it is expensive and not as high impact as advertised. Lorraine from CA

This bra has become a standout favorite of mine for working out. So much so, I've repurchased it several times and plan to always have at least one. The support and shape are fantastic. Only negative is the center panel; it comes up quite high, so it creates a little bit of a "third nipple" appearance, and if you do yoga in this and do inversions or plow or even shoulder stand, the center panel comes up to the throat and tries to choke me a little bit. If these yoga poses are what you plan on using the bra for, maybe think again (like the Natori v-neck sports bra). Also, straps are a bit short - I always need the very longest setting, as with other Wacoal bras. But still a winner! Wendy from Red Bank/NJ/USA

I originally purchased this bra to wear during working out and playing golf. I found it to be so comfortable that I ordered more to wear all the time. It is not the most attractive bra but, it is quite flattering under clothing. I was wearing a minimizer bra but this bra works just as well, if not better. I did have to size up from a 38 to a 40. The most comfortable I have found to date! Joan from West Palm Beach/ FL,/USA

This is the first 32H I have worn. The fit is OK, and the support is great. I had some irritation under the arm the first time I wore it. Carol from Chamois, Missouri, USA

This bra was an irregular! The fasteners and label were sewn on the wrong side, making it "inside out". So disappointed as it fit nicely but the underwire was on the outside of the bra.

HerRoom Response: Hi Mary, Sorry for the confusion here. This bra is made with the wires on the outside of the bra on purpose. The floating underwires on the outside of the bra are to insure comfort. Mary from Edisto Island/sc/usa
