Wacoal Medium Control Underwire Sports Bra
Great bra for Everyday Wear and More!
I wear a 36G, and was looking for a comfy everyday bra that could transition to the gym after work. This bra does that!
It is super comfortable. The cups are nicely soft and a bit stretchy, and are very lightly lined. The cups look great under a tee at the gym.
Initially it took a little set up. The bra straps are not traditional straps. Instead they clip to adjust. I find this type of strap more comfy. When I put on the bra, it was high up. I clipped down 2 notches, and it feels GREAT!
The underwire are interesting built outside of the bra, but are quite comfortable. This lets the cups separate well. I like this design. The wires do come up high, but I do not notice any discomfort. Tee shirts likely will show this higher wiring if they are tighter. I wear thicker shirts and looser tees, so it has not been an issue for me, but if you wear tight shirts, you'll see the wires.
I can wear this bra all day, feel super supported, and transition to the gym if need be. This is better for my circuit days or biking. When I do higher impact things, I put on my 5 dumbbell Enell bra.
I love this bra in nude, and now have it in black and fuchsia. I will grab it in white :)
I highly recommend.

I have worn Wacoal bras for a long time. I bought this one to use as a sports bra and it performs well. It is the most comfortable correctly fitted bra I have ever had, plus it acts as a minimizer without all the itchy lace and silly decorations that most minimizers have. The underwires are well padded and do not poke or grab. Also, the straps can be shortened enough that the straps actually support a high-set bust like mine. The only down side is that it does not have a front closure, but it is easy enough to slip the fastened bra over my head and shoulders. I will be buying more of this style for everyday use, as well as for sports.

Would not buy again
I have other Wacoal bras so I was disappointed with the performance of this one. But once you take the tag off you cannot return. Unfortunately, no way to know if you will like it until you wear it.

Perfect sports bra however......needs some modifications
This is one of the best sports bra I have ever worn. The fabric breathes, minimal stretch, good cup coverage. With a few modifications I would make this my all the time bra. It runs very small and tight which may loosen with time and washings, the straps are too short, I'm only 5'3 and I'm on the last spot for lengthening the straps. The wire in the front center bends outward for about an inch so I couldn't wear this with a snug fitting shirt or deep v-neck. The rest of the underwire lays flat where it should be. I am a 38G and I bought a 40 G, the cups fit but there is too much underwire, the band is tight. But not only is this comfortable, I also look good in it, lot of support and not squashed flat or out the sides. I would recommend that you order up a band size if you are between sizes.

Although this bra has lots of support for sports activities, it is comfortable enough to wear all day. I would definitely purchase this style again.
