I'm using this as an all day bra, and I love it. I do agree with the other reviewers that the back of the bra is scratchy when hooked at the last set of eyes. This problem is the only reason this bra is not a 5 Ann from Madison WI

Very pleased with fit and comfort. Feels soft on the skin, yet supportive. I use this bra during running and weight training and have been pleased in both scenarios. Deborah from Suwanee/Georgia/USA

Love this bra- gives great support for those of us who are well endowed and need it. I plan on getting more not just for the gym but everyday use. Jessica from Alpine

much too small and uncomfortable...returned it

HerRoom Response: All sports bras run snug in the band to give you support during your activity. Perhaps you are simply not use to such firm support.

Wacoal Response: This is the Wacoal Sport Bra. This is the best selling better sport bra on the market. We have had no reports of problems with the fit. I believe the customer simply has the wrong size. Sport bras normally run a little smaller to provide more support and less movement. I suggest you try the 34DD. susan from United States

The nice thing about this bra is that it is seamless, but the underwire is very uncomfortable. You feel it in your ribs. To exercise in this would be impossible.

Wacoal Response: This is the Wacoal Sport Bra. The best selling better sports bra on the market. If the bra is uncomfortable in the rib area it is because you either has it adjusted incorrectly-needs to go to the next hook- or it is in the wrong size. Sports bras do fit snugly and sometimes you need to go to a larger band size. Tamara from Poughkeepsie/New York

I had HerRoom help with picking a sports bra, they suggested two, Donna Karan and Wacoal. I like them both, but the Wacoal is ideal, not only for sports, but everyday wear. I will definitely buy this bra again. I can't say anything negative about it. Jen from Springfield, OH

Wicking and underwire on the outside is good. The band underneath was too tight. I had to get extenders. atlas from charlotte,nc

This is a great bra for larger cup sizes, very supportive and comfortable since the wires are on the outside. But, in my opinion, it runs small in the cup-I would go up 1 size- and definitely very small in the band. I have other 32s that fit me with no problems, but this was so tight I couldn't breathe, let alone exercise in it, even on the loosest hook...And second drawback is the price. Wish it was a little more affordable. I will buy it again though and would recommend it. As for the site-best ever!!! Ramona from Sacramento, CA

Finally, a sport bra that fits my petite frame and large bust! I am very happy with the bra, though I have found it to be more comfortable when I wear it inside out. It minimizes bounce, is smooth under clothes, and is not heavily padded. I am thrilled with it. Nancy from Denver, Colorado, USA

Have this bra in a larger size. Can't seem to get the right fit in a smaller size after loosing a bunch of weight. It's a great sports bra. Deb from UT

This is a very comfortable bra. It's made from thin, strong material, has no-stretch straps, and the underwire is on the outside, so it doesn't rub against your skin. It's also not too long in the rib cage area; it fits well if you are petite. I'm 5' and it fits my torso well. For larger breasted women, it is probably best suited for lower impact cardio (elliptical) rather than higher impact (running). It's also comfortable enough to wear when not working out. Over all, a great investment; one of the best sports bras I've purchased over the years. T from Alaska

Very supportive and no uniboob, however it is a little scratchy in back and the straps have extra fabric in the back that has to be smoothed out, but I am running in it and it is very supportive. I would buy it again, better then the Champion sports bras I have always worn. Sandy from Clayton, CA

For sports, jogging, etc... LOVE THIS BRA! Absolutely the only bra I can run in. Yes, band sizing runs a bit small. I tend towards 32G but in this model, I go with 34DDD. If you're a 33 band, order the 34. If you're D+ cup size this is the only bra to run in, and still look like a girl. No mono-boobs here... Love the fact that under a shirt, you still have support without being overly compressed. OK, downsides... they need way better colors. Guys, really, you need to check out the latest sporty colors and fabrics... Moisture transport could be better. Actually used this bra in cross-back configuration while weight-lifting (incline-press), and let's just say it was very bad for the shoulder. But it still gets 5 stars from me because this is the ONLY bra I've ever found that I can run in. Amy from Plano, TX 75023

Good support - but This bra comes up really high in the middle and it really limits the style shirt you can wear with it. Janet from Macon, GA USA

There is not enough fabric on the end of the hook strap, which causes the hook to poke into your back and end of material is scratchy. Otherwise a comfortable, good support and good shape (no uni look) bra. Workout Woman

A few days ago, I had this bra on for 14 hours straight: 4 hours driving to/from a 6-hr, 11-mile hike, and dinner. (Not very "bouncy" activity, but lots of bend/twist, pack on/off, clothing layers on/off, etc.) It hugged securely, did not ride up/slide down (I don't think I "adjusted" all day), and I didn't have that "I need to get out of this" feeling at the end of the day. I did notice what another reviewer mentioned: although it seems there's enough material beyond the last column of loops in back, 1x-2x I felt the hooks were poking my back a bit - not enough to be an issue though. Compared to my everyday bra (Wacoal 85814, 34DDD), this bra is/has: similarly shaped but slightly smaller cups; almost an inch higher in center-front (almost a problem for someone as short as I am, but not quite). The hooks and the front height are the only things keeping this bra from getting 5 stars. CJ from Eureka, MT
