I love these bras and have several of them. Great fit, no underwire and they hold the girls in place. I use them as an everyday working bra. I found this style of Anita bra when I was searching for an older style Anita bra that was similar but are not made anymore. They are a little on the expensive side so I hope they last, my oldest one is about 2 months old and it seems to be holding up well. necowgirl from nebraska

I try different brands but always come back to the Anita bras. They are comfortable and I love the modern bright colors. I highly recommend them. Shirley from Vancouver, wa, usa

Very comfortable, though not quite as "jiggle free" as I would like but great for every day use. I just don't recommend for heavy exercise. Jessica from Indianapolis

All my "going out" bras tend to be armoured tanks that offer great shape & support but I do not feel like wearing them at home. This bra is JUST PERFECT for yoga & home wear. It has moderate (not perky) support & is very flexible for yoga & low impact workouts. I am so happy I found it (after trying & returning a number of bras that felt like tight harnesses)! I am a 30G in Chantelle & Panache. I bought a size 32F in this bra & it is very comfortable with no spillage. It is not padded which I am so thankful for as I sweat a bit when I workout.

After I wore this a couple times it grew on me...and it definitely held "the girls" in and allowed for activity. Didn't look it does on the model on me but I'd likely purchase again. ;) Mindy from Portland/Oregon/USA

I ordered up a size because sports bras are usually so uncomfortably tight. Well, this one is still uncomfortably tight, and is much deeper from top to bottom than the photo shows. There is no side support at all in spite of the side panels almost cutting off circulation in my arm pit. I tried letting the straps out, but the only result was puckering in the cup, and the straps still cut into my shoulders. The microfiber fabric holds in heat. Why can't someone make a comfortable, wide-strapped, breathable, double-fabric, shelf/sports bra? LG

Fit is great! Really holds well for yoga, while being comfortable and not restrictive. Minimizes, rather than making them look larger, like some other sports bras. Kelsey from KCMO

This bra has a lot of support for its weight. It really is barely there. But it has the same problem most 40A bras have in that it expects the breasts to be much closer to the middle than they are on me. Each nipple is at least an inch away from where the center of support actually is. This results in pressure on the sides of my breasts that isn't noticeable at first but becomes achy after a few hours. Emmi (pending 12-27-2013) from Arlington, va

Too tight, straps too short, binding and constricting. I couldn't stand to wear it. Maybe I am not a sports bra kind of person. Sherry -pend. (12-27-2013) from Washburn, ND US

I have been wearing this bra for many years. It is comfortable and wears very well. It shouldn't be listed just as a sports bra because it is a great everyday bra. I have recommended it to a number of friends. DD from Wilmington/Delaware

I love Anita! This bra was the only one out of 4 that I kept. The straps are wide and comfortable, the cup shape is natural, and overall it is true to size and comfortable. I ordered a cup size smaller than usual based on reviews, but think that my usual size would be fine. I'll keep the smaller cup size for times when I need extra support, and order more in my usual size. This bra is very comfortable, but only moderate motion control. For more control try another Anita bra, the Extreme Control 5527. Laura from San Francisco

Great comfortable wire-free bra. Doesn't give that uniboob look for me. Runs small in the band; I normally wear a 34 but the 36 fit well in this style. I don't play sports so I don't know if it would be supportive enough or not for an athlete. Ellen from Brattleboro Vermont

I love this bra but it seems to run small in the band. I've never worn a 36 before but had to return this for a 36E, which fits fine and is extremely comfortable. I'm not an athlete so I don't need it to hold up to running; I just love having a comfortable wireless bra that fits. Ellen from Brattleboro Vermont

Word can not explain how awesome this bra is. I have been on a quest to have a number of good bras, and due to my size ( I am thin w/ large very very full breasts), I have struggled and have to buy over the internet. I also do not want ANY metal in my bras. Well this bra is so comfortable, such wide straps that my shoulders are singing on how soft and yummy all the weight is distributed on my shoulders. I had found Anita's 5457 a couple months ago, and was very happy, but this bra is even better. I want 5 of them! and will buy more. I have a new rule....I only buy Anita....they are the best I have found and all the others have been far less comfortable and thus, I am done with the rest. Buy this bra....oh, forgot to mention, I did not buy this bra to work out, or to bounce (but it holds things in place wonderfully)....I buy all my bras for every day support and comfort. I want great everyday support, period...and this is it. Vicki from Phoenix,AZ USA

This is my second purchase of this style bra. After 2 years, I needed a replacement. The bra is very comfortable and good for wearing while walking for exercise. Also good for everyday wear. I did not rate as 5-star because I'd like to see it offered in size 30 band. B from South Carolina

I ended up having to return this item because it just didn't keep the girls in place. It's definitely not enough support for dance aerobics, lots of jumping, etc. But, it's a really nice and comfortable bra in all other respects and I would definitely recommend buying it to wear just under your clothes day-to-day. This isn't a nursing bra, but I wore this style when I was breastfeeding b/c I had jumped up a size and needed something that did a better job of supporting the girls better than the cheaper nursing bras I was wearing. So overall, meant for lower to medium impact workouts but amazingly comfortable as a normal bra.

Anita Response: Thank you, for your feedback on this style. Yes, it is for medium impact only. We suggest trying Anita Momentum Sports Bra 5529 for the higher impact workout. This style would be great for you. Sarah from Alexandria, VA
