This is...not good. I only tried this on because I was in Nordstrom Rack and spotted it for sale. I have never tried the wireless model and I wanted to see how it fit. I had a ton of bounce, but that's not really surprising given that it's at least 1 cup size too small. It really is a nicely made bra, just not a good fit. Other than it being too small, I don't think that the non-wired look is for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

At this point, I feel like either of the Panache sports bras can, in no way, live up to the reputation they've gained online. I can't say I'm *blown away* by this, but I will say I'm happy to have this in my arsenal, both as a sports bra and as a wireless lounge bra.
If you're strictly comparing this to the wired version, based on my experience, I would say the band runs similar while the cups are more TTS. I am now generally wearing a UK 32H/34GG, and this fits. I would definitely not size down in the band, as the 34 was a bit of a ... struggle to put on (not like, sweating struggle; but it's more snug than I anticipated). However, once fastened, the bra is comfortably firm. The cups fit well. I wouldn't want the cups bigger nor smaller. There is the appearance of slight quadding at top, but I think that is more because I have tissue up top by my collar bone the bra's tight top was cutting into than that the cup is too small. For reference, I've tried a 32GG in the wired version, and I found the band too snug and I was swimming in the cups -- they were one, if not two, cup sizes too large in the 32GG.
Also compared to the wired version, I much prefer the shape this one provides. My girls looked compact and rounded, whereas the wired gave me a weird and splayed east-west look. I would have no problem wearing this one as part of my everyday wear, but I wouldn't with the wired one.
As for functionality, nothing stops The Bounce. Nothing. Your body moves, and so do your boobs. Luckily, my workout routine consists of more walking than running (ok, there is NO running), so this provides adequate support.
My only complaint with the bra is that the straps aren't long enough. Unless they're loosened all the way (and then, even still), I feel stress on my neck and shoulders from the too tight straps. All in all, I wouldn't pay full retail for it, but I am happy to pay what I did for it being on sale.
