This sports bra is so comfortable that although this size didn't fit me, I went hunting for a larger cup size. Yeah, I was that impressed after trying 7 or 8 others. I need underwire (my ladies are very soft, pendulous and projected) and need taller cups in a sports bra to contain my tissue comfortably. I also have challenges with tissue (tail of spence perhaps?) being crushed between the strap and wing that can be especially painful in cups that are too short/small/constricting. This Wacoal Sport Underwire Bra was the first model I found that did not torture me so, even though it ... was too small. It passed the bounce test, run test, and burpee test. The straps are wide and supportive, and adjust enough to work for me on the very last hook (beware if this is typically a trouble area for you!). The strap adjustment is only barely long enough though, and it's a little hard to get on because I have large upper arms (33 cm circumference) and am not one of those talented souls that can hook a bra behind my back. These are just a couple of things to be mindful of if you are considering this bra. It has four rows of hooks and feels very supportive, which I like a lot. I prefer the feel of an encapsulation sport bra, and the wires of this bra come darn near to tacking in the actual size that fits me (not this 32DDD - my winning size is a 32G in this bra). The way the underwires are on the outsides of the cups is pretty brilliant - the center gore comes very, very, very high but I am not bothered by that because of how this bra is constructed. This sports bra gets sweaty but feels breathable because it's a fairly thin material. To that end, nipples may show through - mine do, and that's meaningful because this is seldom a problem for me. If you have prominent nipples you prefer to keep on the DL this bra may not be right for you. Also relating to looks, this bra is plain-Jane and very utilitarian - not a sports bra to show off at all. However, under clothing this bra provides a very nice look - not too minimized for my liking - just gently rounded and nicely lifted. I am returning this 32DDD, but was so impressed I've already purchased, received and worn two 32G's and I won't be looking at other sports bra models anymore.
