This bra is wonderful. I bought the first one for Tae Kwon Do but now wear these every day. It provides excellent support and is comfortable to wear. The bra shows under low neckline tops because it is cut high, but I prefer to switch shirts rather than wear another bra! My usual size is 32DDD and this was true to size.

I ordered this bra in black after having the beige one and loving it. The black bra appears to be a full size smaller than the beige and the white ones I have ordered recently. :( because I love this bra for comfort fit and support

Very comfortable, great support (I'm 34DD), and no uni-boob issues. I wear it under street clothes, too, although as others have noted it is cut pretty high in the front. I've worn mine on several 6-10 mile hikes this spring and it's been great - no chafing, rubbing, or slipping, and the wicking material kept me comfortable. I just got another in black I liked it so much. I only wish I could find a lower-cut bra this comfortable and supportive!

This is an awesome bra. I liked it so much, I ordered a second one. It is hard to find a sports bra that a) clasps in back b) is underwire and c) is supportive to large chests. This is it! And Zappos shipping was so fast I got it the next morning. Awesome!

This is the best bra in the universe! It is very sturdy, and has a back closure, and wide soft straps over the shoulders. The support is better than any other sports bra. I ordered 36DDD, and it fits perfect, others say it runs small, however I think it is the snug fit that gives you great support. Try this bra, it is simply the best.

I love this bra, although it does seem to break down quickly. This is my 3rd one. The underwire seems to break after 3-4 months of wearing 4 times a week either running or crossfitting. Still my favorite and I'll keep ordering.

Comfortable yet support. I use for (slow) jog & have DDD cup. Think it may good for higher impact. Regularly have had positive experience with Wacoal.

I'm so happy I got this sport bra, it is just what I was looking for. Finding a good supportive sport bra in 40H is not easy. I wear it working out, hiking, and biking. It is cool and comfortable as the cups are a breathable mesh-type, but supportive fabric. No excess liners or padding! The middle gore is very high, so its sometimes visible through a shirt, but it looks ok. The fit is snug as a sport bra should be, but it does make getting it on a little tricky. The way they have made the straps adjustable doesn't help, as they are hooks that slide through fabric loops on the back, and if you are really pulling hard to pull the straps over your shoulders after fastening the band, the hooks can get twisted or come loose. But that's my only complaint and after a couple of wearings it isn't a problem so much. I loved this bra so much I tried the Wacoal Basic beauty full figure bra and love it too!

Dress is very comfortable and looks great on. It is shorter than most dresses I wear but use flats with it so it looks fine. Complements my body shape and hides some areas that need to be hidden

This is the first of this style for me to order. When it came, I put it on and wore it all day in complete comfort. Lifted "the girls" to a much better level that most of the minimizer styles I have been wearing. I did note the other reviews and ordered the next size larger band. That was a smart idea. I love this bra and wear it for everyday as well as exercise. I will be ordering more of this style -- it's great.

Previously I wore a Moving Comfort Maia type bra daily. The redesign of Maia lead me to shopping. Having worn Wacoal in the past I decided to give this sports bra a try. It is comfortable and holds the girls in place. Plus gives me a nice shape with clothing. The only complaint is the back tag, it rubs. I recommend this bra.

Thanks to Zappos' free shipping and returns, I am able to try on bras without having to drag my children to a dressing room and listen to them ask questions about my chest loud enough for everyone to hear. That being said, I ordered the Wacoal Sport Underwire bra and the Natori Sport Underwire bra so I can compare the two. The Wacoal won hands down. The cups are made with a thicker fabric that doesn't reveal how cold I feel. The straps are thick and wide and, dare I say it, comfy. Finally, the support provides a nice rounded profile, whereas the Natori made 'the girls' look a little depressed. I am returning both bras because the Wacoal does run a little bit smaller than the Natori and if I want to be able to breathe after eating Christmas cookies, my rib cage will need a little more wiggle room.

I always have trouble finding bras that fit and are comfortable. I like the Wacoal brand so I gave this one a try. It's great! It is very comfortable and fits true to size. It has excellent support. I recommend it to anyone! I'm super satisfied with it.

I love this bra! I purchased a bunch of sports bras to try, and ended up keeping this one to use as an every day bra. I don't think it would give enough support for me to use for high impact activity (I have a C/D cup). But as an everyday bra, it's awesome. I almost don't even feel like I'm wearing a bra. I went back and purchased this in white and black as well. I normally wear a 36C/D in everyday bras and the 38C fit me perfectly in this style. The front of the bra does come up higher than my other everyday bras, but it's meant to be a sports bra so I guess that is to be expected. It's worth dealing with though. The only strange thing that I have noticed (as other reviewers have noted), the black seems to run about a half to one size smaller than the other colors.

Finally...the clouds parted and this bra was delivered unto me! I've absolutely nothing negative to say and thrilled to have discovered this bra as I tried over a dozen high quality athletic bras with no success. The band doesn't roll under, the straps don't cut into my shoulders or slip, the fabric breathes nicely and is silky soft, and there is no uniboob. And yes, the front of the bra is higher than most, but if you're wearing an easy drapey yoga-like top and the black color peeks out it looks intentional and a hint sexy. I'm 5'2", apple-shaped, athletic, and typically a 36DD. I purchased the 38D for a perfect fit. I vigorously hike approximately 20 miles a week, 3-7 miles at a time and get all the support and comfort I was looking for; however, if I were a runner it might not lock me down enough. I'm also wearing it for general use and to work. The quality is exceptional - it truly is worth every penny. (Nothing but the best from Zappos too...they're great!)

I have a very difficult time finding bras that actually fit right. This bra is incredible. It gives GREAT support and fit so well. I will definately be ordering more of them. I also ordered the Wacoal sports bra. Everyone should have at least one of them. Especially if you a full breated and have difficulty finding properly fitting bras.

I ordered this bra to use while exercising, but find it so comfortable that I wear it almost everyday. It looks great under blouses and sweaters. As a full busted woman, I've always been very particular about well fitting undergarments. This one feels great all the time, and makes me look so much slimmer!

I wear a 34G so it was hard for me to find a sports bra that provided both supports and kept the bouncing at bay. Before this bra I was always finding bras that made me look like I had one huge girl rather than 2. A friend of mine suggested I try this brand because she was having the great experience that I was looking for. So I recently signed up for a fitness kickboxing class and needed a new sports bra and came across this one. Boy...this was the best decision I have made in a long time. Finally after 4 years I have found a sports bra that not only provides great support and minimal bouncing but I actually had 2 girls rather than one big one. I have never had a bra provide so much support. Other than the price one of the downsides is that the front of the bra does come up very high, but I feel that is a minimal con compared to all the pros. I say give it a try, trust you'll never look back.

Great bra for daily or workout! I am a 36DD and have a challenge finding a bra that TRULY keeps the girls in place when running. This one does the trick AND still manages to look normal in clothes - unlike others that result in either the uniboob or flattening everything out like a pancake. I love that it is comfortable enough to wear all day when necessary - awesome for those days when I'm not quite sure when I'm going to fit the workout in but know I need to. If I had any negative comment it would only be the way the straps adjust in the back results in "loose tabs" that occasionally need to be "tucked into place", but it's not often and I can live with it. Overall, love this bra!
