    Didn't fit

    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.

      wow, great that you found something that is so comfortable and that you're happy with :)

    • What an endorsement--sounds lovely! How are the wires? Do they bite or has placing them on the outside created a "cushion" from them? I may have to try this because my wireless options keep collapsing.

      Love4Pollinators there is ZERO wire bite. It's pretty amazing, so much so that I thought to myself wow, maybe this should be my everyday bra! Okay, maybe I won't go that far (it wouldn't be compatible with too many tops) but dang, it is comfy! The way the inside of the bra is lined with a stretchy lycra-like material completely isolates the wires. I can't even feel the underwires in the cup size I settled on as my keeper, 32H. In the 32DDD I still didn't feel the wires, BUT, I did feel pressure on my tissue - but no pain. On the several other sport bras I tried (which I will review but won't be posting as adventures because I thought they were all 'meh' or even terrible) even non-tacking wires were very feel-able, and no matter how much I enjoy a tacking gore, it's not a good thing in an active situation. Oh - and I cannot believe I forgot this in my review - this style feels like it has some of the more narrow underwires of the sports bras I've tried, 16 cm in the DDD. That's nice in my book, because too-wide wires (i.e., the Freya active sports at 17.5 cm) smoosh my breasts laterally in a way that I find super uncomfortable.

      I picked my Wacoal UW Sports bra up from Amazon and it was returnable without additional shipping or penalty. After returning my first order of the 32DDD I upsized immediately to the 32H and that proved to be perfect, so I kept it. Then I bought another on eBay and am hoping to win an auction for one more. :) I like a deal!

      Ebay for Wacoal bras is my idea of Mecca. So inexpensive....especially in the larger sizes where they are close to $60 elsewhere. I'm intensely grateful!

      Love4Pollinators agree, eBay is a great place to find bargain bras! I bought another Empreinte for $25!! BTW, I have you to thank as inspiration to try this Wacoal - your bras-under-tshirt series starring Wacoal encouraged me enough to drop the $65 to try the Wacoal Sport Underwire in the first place. I'd only ever tried their unlined bras and hated every single one, so I was glad your feedback motivated me to give the brand a second chance, because this sport bra is ah-mazing!

      That is wonderful news. Thrilled this worked for you! And, you have inspired me to try the Wacoal Sport. Symbiotic relationship :-) :-)

    Great sports bra. Fits super well, like a second skin. Only issue is that the nipple will show--but when I exercise I warm up so it's not really a problem. Looks...structured, so it's not very attractive by itself; I always wear a t-shirt over it.
