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

The bra is very comfortable. However, it does not give enough support when jogging. Jennifer from Maryland

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

Bra fits well, one of the better sport bras. It is a bit scratchy though. If I were designing it I would put in very light padding so there would be no nipple show through. Some other bras I've tried do have that and I prefer those. Diane from Nashville

This bra gave me great support for my treadmill and strength workouts. It is also very comfortable - I got busy after the gym and I actually wore it all day. The underwires don't cut in, but they do come up a bit high in the center, so I wouldn't recommend it as an all day bra. I got a size bigger than my usual band size for comfort and breath ability - the fit was good - but I probably could have gotten my usual size - its just a personal preference of mine for sports bras.

The Wacoal sports bra is awesome! I liked my first one so well, I ordered 2 more in different colors. The bra offers great support and is comfortable to wear all day. High impact sports are no longer a problem. I can even run again! Jackie

I tried on two sports bras today in a store, this one and a Shock Absorber bra. This one I liked because it separates the breasts (no uniboob) and has smooth cups so your breasts look nice and natural. I'm not sure what model Shock Absorber bra I tried on, but I didn't care to find out because it was lumpy under my shirt. HOWEVER, I am a 32DDD/32F (I have 2 Simone Perele bras in 32F and they fit my back and breasts perfectly), which is the size I tried in the store for this bra, and it was SO tight in the band (but perfect in the cups). I could only get it to hook onto the last set of hooks and even then, it was TIGHT. Another reviewer with the same cup size gave this bra 1 star for that reason, and HerRoom said she's probably not used to the firm support it gives but suggested a 34DD, which I just ordered here in black. I think the 34DD would be much better. I would recommend the black, because I tried the nude on in the store under a white American Apparel tank top, and the top comes out of the neckline a wee bit and so do the straps, so it's a little unflattering with nude pieces sticking out, but with the black, it will look more like I might just be wearing a black undershirt.

Wacoal Response: We hope you are happy with your new black 34DD. If the cups seem a little snug you may want to go to the 34DDD but it sounds like the 34DD will do fine. Michelle

* Wonderful website with great service. * Excellent fit but not really comfortable. * Side seams 4", not 3.75" as stated. * Unusually heavy wires come very high (I am 5'0") * Wishing the site would have category/filter for very petites..... Lisa from Kokomo IN, USA

Best support sports bra that I have tried. It is very firm and reduces movement nearly completely. It holds your breast apart and prevents them from coming together during exercise. This bra fits my needs, high impact sports, that I have purchased several. Word of caution if you are not used to wearing a firm, full control garment this bra may take some time getting adjusted to its style and fit. Roxy from Dallas,TX

I WAS SO SURPRISED ABOUT THE FACT IT DIDN'T FIT AT ALL, WACOAL HAS BEEN THE BRAND OF BRA I BUY CONSTANTLY FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS, THIS WAS SO SMALL I COULDN'T EVEN GET IT ON. WEIRD! DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.

Wacoal Response: This is the best Sports bra on the market and by design it fits more snugly than other bras-to provide the bounce control necessary in sport bra. She may not be suited to this type of sports bra and consider a bra with larger more forgiving cups like the 85667 Awareness bra in her size. Mary from Vancouver, WA, USA

I have not worn the bra as of yet. It fits fine and gives great support. It is a really big bra, not just cup size and quite heavy. I was looking for support and I got it. Glori from California
