Fantastic travel bra. My two Anitas were the only bras I packed for 12 days in Europe. They were comfortable during long days of sightseeing and compact in my luggage. Best of all, they were easy to wash in my hotel sink and dried in just a few hours. I won't be leaving home without them. Jan from Cleveland, OH

I don't 'rate' bras often, but thought I'd share my thoughts on this one. Sizing was perfect (but I had tried on this bra in a store locally, and then found it at HerRoom at a MUCH better price)! it's so comfortable that I had to stop and think if I was actually wearing it right now as I went to begin the review....offers great support (haven't tried anything too strenuous yet)...but done some fast walking and playing/running with my young children. looks just fine under basic tees for running errands and such (but I'm no "have to look AMAZING when I'm just running around town every reg. day), but i don't expect a comfortable sports bra to lift, seperate, etc. like a regular bra does....no digging on shoulder straps, no rolling on band, very comfortable material, no itching, all around I'd definitely buy again. (My guess is that it's not enough support for things like horseback riding, running marathons, etc....but i wasn't looking for that). Very happy with this bra! Shelley from BC, Cda

I have been wearing this bra for a number of years now and think they are great. I hate underwires but need support and these work quite well. DD from Newark, DE USA

I do a lot of perennial gardening and need a light weight comfortable bra that would dry out quickly and not chafe. I love this bra, although I wish I had gotten a 42C, guess I am bigger than I thought! Denise from Alabama

Not what I expected in a sports bra. It's very comfortable BUT if you don't want to be flopping around during your sports activity this NOT the bra to use. On the other hand it gives a smooth profile. Bonnie from New Mexico

Does not look like your conventional sports bra. But has very firm control and keeps breasts in place while working out. Elaine from Buffalo,NY

Love this bra, it is so comfortable. After buying many bras that were so uncomfortable, I find this sports bra to be the most comfortable with great support. Having had breast cancer with radiation treatments, bras can be painful but this bra has no wire to dig in and breasts look natural. I would highly recommend this bra for all day use.

This is my absolute favorite sports bra! I was surprised that it was listed as a medium-impact bra, because I wear it running and for other super-high impact activities (like boot camp, where you do lots of jumping jacks) and it's wonderful. Maybe it depends on your bust size and larger sizes truly can't wear it for those activities. Anyway, I love it because there is no wire, it's lightweight and comfortable, and comes in a great nude color so I can wear it under lighter fabrics with no show-through. I work out five days a week and wear this bra for most workout activites, including running, weight training and yoga. I like that it doesn't create a back bulge, so I can wear it under yoga tanks and still have a smooth look. My only complaint is that it is quite compressive, so I probably lose a couple of inches on my bust size when I wear it. That doesn't matter for running, but not so attractive for yoga class. It also comes up quite high on the chest in the front, and may show over the top of lower-cute workout tops. But for the support and light weight, I still love it! Pam from Georgia

I have to say I am puzzled by the comment that this is not a good fit for a petite woman, because it works well for me. I'm not only short, but super short between the shoulders and the waist and have tons of trouble with bra fitting generally. This one I find very comfortable for hiking and golf -- i.e. not high impact activities, but ones where I perspire and need some comfortable motion. I am really a 30 and had to skip the first set of hooks, but that's life. I don't know what makes this work fine for me but not other petites. Ann from California

This is the best sport's bra by far I have ever purchased. It is quite costly but it actually fits you like a skin, and has great support. I have tried many including this in a front closure which was not as fitting (sides were cut lower) and front was bulkier. the only thing i wish this bra had was velcro straps for adjustment otherwise I highly recommend it.

This bra provided absolutely no support for me in this cup size. I can't imagine doing strenuous walking in it, let alone running. The fabric and straps were comfortable, and it would have made a good sleeping bra. But I returned it due to the fact I needed a supportive bra for exercising. Lynn M from Michigan

This is a very comfortable, fairly supportive sports bra. There's not much choice in my size, but I'm very happy with this bra; it fits really well, and doesn't get clammy when I'm sweating. (And I don't get the uniboob that other people have talked about in their reviews; I wonder if they have the right bra size? But if you need to jump or bounce, look for something with more structure to it. Still Athletic from Colorado

Love it! And it does keep me cool!! The only thing I would change about is for it to have a thin lining. Other than that, it's great! RW from North Dakota

I am very hard to fit and have never had a bra that fits properly. This bra is very close. The only problem for me is that the straps are a bit too short causing the band to sit in the wrong place and not allowing me to adjust it any further. I kept it though because it has great fabric and is otherwise very comfortable because it has no wires. I will use it when I'm exercising. Mary from New York

This sports bra was pretty thin, I figured it would be a little thicker and more supportive. I tried it on and that was the end of it. However a smaller size may have helped but I decided against it since I prefer a thicker sports bra. Would likely be a good choice for someone who's smaller busted than I. Jamie from Iowa City, IA

Got this bra in 32C cups were too small. ordered it again in the 32D and the cups fit better, BUT the band is still too large & straps too long. I need a 30 band- they do not make that.

This is quite large for an A--big enough that there is no support. Also, having three hooks and side panels that are very wide for an A isn't a great design. P from Minneapolis
