Very uncomfortable bra. Lots of support, but it's structure was too corset like to be comfortable for me.

Wacoal Response: This is the Wacoal Sports Bra-the #1 Sports Bra in the country in the better bra business. Because of the job it has to do, superior support for an active body, it has to be confining with a fairly firm fit. It will fit more "corset like" because it is designed to restrict movement of the bust (bouncing up and down). You might like to try style # 65115 or 65124 they are less restrictive but are made with a fabric that is great for casual or sport wear. Mary from South Carolina

Good support and fit. Comfortable. Does not look good under garments. Very frumpy looking. Ritann from Easton, PA

After reading the reviews that stated the band on this bra ran small I decided to give it a try. I wear a bra size of 30F or 30FF depending on the maker. This sports bra band did run small so the 32 felt more like a 30, I can hook it on the last hooks and it fits snug. For reference I measure 26 inches under the bust, and 37 inches across the largest part of my bust. I tried this bra on in a size 32DDD and the 32G. I was a little in between the sizes but I went with the 32DDD. The fabric is nice, no itching, and no pointy boobs. If you plan on wearing this under a thin shirt you may want to consider some nipple concealers so your headlights don’t show. Becca from Anaheim, CA

Very comfortable. Good support without squashing. (But I do wear a "squasher" sports bra on top of this one for running). Sheila from Connecticut

The wider shoulder straps are really nice. The no slip adjustment on the shoulder straps are a plus. This bra is comfortable, however, it does allow for some bounce when exercising so maybe not the best for jogging. Tricia from Centerville/UT/USA

Mesh bra fits okay,but the middle of the bra takes getting used to wearing. I ordered the same bra in the knit versions and wound up throwing them in the trash. They would NOT stay put and kept riding up and the middle extension irritation was worse. The mesh one does provide very good support.

Wacoal Response: This bra is designed to contain the breast tissue. It is a high impact sports bra that needs to come high in the middle in order to contain the breast. Sally from Fairfield, Tx

Seems to give good support but bounce is evident in the gym. I previously owned Lunaire Cool Max which was great on minimizing bounce but it also left you with pointy-Madonna-circa 1980-silhouette. With that said, this bra is fine: nice silhouette, minimal bounce, but no conceiving padding which I don't like. Easy to put on and true to size. T

This bra is great - fits me perfectly! I just ordered two more, since I have been wearing this sports bra as my regular bra. Provides great support, is very comfortable, looks good, and is a good minimizer. It has held up very well. Heather from NY

One of the best sports bras I've ever tried (and I buy them frequently). The girls stayed with my breastbone without being uncomfortable through cardio kickboxing class and hour long jogs... I get some bounce with the Natori 34439 and Le Mystere's sports bras. One thing they could improve though is that this bra comes up really high...

This is a great sports bra! Very comfortable. It is a little on the thin side in the cups, but it has great support - I bought two, and I'm glad I did. Teri from Ellensburg, WA USA

I wear Wacoal bras (minimizer) all the time so purchasing a support/athletic bra was a no brainer. I feel very supported and it's very comfortable - don't even think about the fact that it's an athletic bra. I don't mind the underwires on the outside since they don't show under my tee shirts.

I wear a size 32D in one Wacoal bra. I figured that would be my size in other Wacoals, but after trying 3 other styles that didn't fit correctly, I ordered this in a 34C. It fits pretty well, but not perfect. Is a very nice supportive sport bra, however. Feliz

I love this bra; it fits like a dream and my girls rarely bounce. It's great for high impact, and comfortable enough to wear all day. My only complaint, and it's not that big, is that the front of the bra comes up pretty high. Heather from Chambersburg, PA

Love it! This is the second one I ordered. After the first one I had to get a second; I didn't want to wear any of my other sports bras to my workouts. It gives excellent support without smashing the girls. Dixie from Fremont, CA

The first high impact exercise bra that works! At 5'2" to find an underwire that does not cut into my armpits and allows me to comfortably participate in my classes. Highly recommend to anyone that has been searching and consistently disappointed for an excellent sports bra. Ruthie from USA

I was looking for a non-cotton sports bra (I sweat a lot); there don't appear to be many. I'm a little concerned that the seamless cups are a little too stretchy to offer sufficient support, though it was comfortable on the first run I took it out on. I'll keep it on, for the winter.

This bra is fantastic! I have a large chest and sports bras have always been problematic. This bra does not try to flatten the chest, but instead supports it! The fabric does not stay wet after perspiring but dries quickly. I am comfortable in this bra all day long. Amy from Rock Hall, MD

The fabric feels good and the fitting. But one wash and the ends got ruins, I have to try and fix it with pliers. I am very unhappy about that.

Wacoal Response: It appears that this bra fit well and was comfortable. I would guess that she did not follow proper care instructions. Make sure you wash your bras in a lingerie wash bag and do not put them in the dryer. They will dry very well by hanging them someplace that is airy. RACHELLIE from NEW YORK

I have a broad rib cage and need a cup that comes under my arms and is also high under my arms. This bra has both and is definitely worth the money. It can be worn reversed. Good for jogging and everyday. NoUniboob from Alaska

This bra fits well and is comfortable. Normally I would wear a 36, glad I purchased the size 38 in this style. The fabric around the breast area is somewhat thin. The underwire provides some uplift and support for low impact exercise - I wouldn't consider this bra best for high impact exercise. Also note, that the design of the bra shows the underwire on the outside of the bra usually this is more hidden by fabric and reversed. This is not a negative necessarily just a different appearance.

None of the regular sports bras would fit me and it kept me from confidently working out. If you have a smaller band size with larger breasts, none of the regular sports bra fit right. This Wacoal bra fits! It's fantastic, with excellent control that doesn't fit too tight. It fits smoothly, comfortably and feels like a regular bra, but no matter how you jump, bend, run, bike, or wrestle, this bra keeps everything in perfect place. No more pinching, tugging, or embarrassing jiggle. The cups are only one light layer (so you have to wear something with it, either petals or a t-shirt). The strap adjustment system in the back is also different from most bras, so they don't slowly slip or loosen. I LOVE THIS BRA! Liz from Texas

Fantastic support, and the girls look nice--but back of strap is sooo scratchy it drives me crazy! Also comes up very high in the front and so pokes out from my shirt sometimes. I have to be careful. Ill keep wearing it though because of the great support for my large size. Katie
