Wacoal Sport line for active full-figured woman
Mar '09
Wacoal, the luxury intimate apparel brand renowned for its superior quality and fit, announces the debut of Wacoal Sport, an incredibly comfortable and functional athletic bra collection, featuring both underwire and non-underwire styles for the active full-figured woman.

Wacoal Sport collection is ideal for full-figured women because of special elements designed for the utmost in comfort and support, including adjustable padded over-the-shoulder and back straps that lock in place with a protected hook-and-eye feature. The non-wire style is constructed with a molded simplex inner cup for increased stability during movement. The underwire style adds structured support to lift and separate the bust and also features a seamless fabric layer against the skin which alleviates chafing.

Both Wacoal Sport bra styles feature Naturexx, a moisture-management finish that wicks dampness away from the skin keeping the wearer cool and dry. The fabric itself is a unique and powerful tricot weave with 'balanced stretch', which offers the same elongation in both directions of the fabric. It is made with a Lycra/nylon blend including 20% Lycra spandex, woven with a heavy-weight yarn, which performs excellent recovery and memorizes its shape after being stretched, without losing its supportive strength. Both styles are suitable for all level of activity.

"We are thrilled to introduce athletic bra styles with Wacoal Sport," says Liz Smith, Wacoal's National Spokesperson. "It just seemed crazy to us that there are so many full-figured women out there wearing two bras to the gym. Now, they can trust Wacoal Sport to give them the support they need, while never having to leave behind the quality they know and trust back in the locker while exercising!"

Both soft cup and underwire styles are available in black and naturally nude.
