This is a very comfortable bra. I put it on and wore it all day. I am having trouble with my left shoulder so occasionally I can't snap my bras behind my back. This one has a lot of snaps, but I managed to hook them all. PattyAnne from San Jose, CA

Recently had breast reduction surgery and this bra was perfect and most comfortable. Wore it at 3 weeks post op and am still loving it as it is supportive and easy to put on. I did order a 38C after reading the other reviews ,as I measure as a 36C but read that by ordering one size up the band would be more comfortable as a post op bra and I agree . Lucy from Boston MA

I bought this after reduction surgery. The adjustable hook and loop straps are wonderful. The one major problem I have with this bra and actually most all bras is the band under the breasts. The band on this bra is terribly uncomfortable after wearing it for a short time. One tip I would give manufacturers of bras is widen the band alittle and soften it up. Especially after surgery it was awhile before I was able to tolerate it. The cup support in this bra is good. Ann from NLR/AR/USA

This is a very good post reduction surgery bra. The only problem I had was the band under the breast where it was zig zag stitched was very painful. It made the band very uncomfortable because it was so tight. If the stitching could be left off or stitched with a looser stitch pattern then it would get 5 stars. I don't think this band needs to be so tight. ann from NLR, AR:USA

I have been ordering this style bra since I had breast reduction surgery. Because of a medical condition, cervical dystonia, I need a posture bra to alleviate stress on my shoulders. This bra works well for me! Maria from Salem, VA

This bra was perfect following my breast surgery. After reading the reviews, I decided to size up to a 38 instead of my usual 36 and it was exactly the right thing to do after ordering both sizes to try on. The cup size was true to size and soft and comfortable. The front hooks were vere easy to fasten and the adjustable shoulder straps gave great personalized support. Since I knew I would be wearing it non-stop for at least a month, it had to be comfortable. They washed nicely too. JR from Northern CA

I have breast cancer and had implants. One of my implants failed and I needed a bra that had a front close. This bra is fantastic. Suggest washing it first before wearing. My doctor also thought this was one of the best he had every seen. Gail T from roseville ca usa

Comfortable and very supportive, however I did think it was a little over priced for the quality of the material. Jacquie from Brooklyn, NY

These are the best bras I have ever owned. They don't ride up and the band around the bra doesn't curl up. They give me the support an older woman needs. I put them in the washer on the gentle cycle using Woolite, put them on a hanger to dry and they come out beautifully. I wash them after every wearing. Love, Love, Love these bras!

This is the first bra I've owned that the band doesn't fold up in front. The bra stays in place very nicely. It doesn't flatten me out and it gives me the support I was looking for since I'm an older woman. It washes beautifully on the gentle cycle. I ordered several and can't wait to receive all of them. One tip-they do run small so you might want to order one size larger. Linda from Coquille, OR

Very comfortable for all day wear and into the night. I needed this because it is easy to put on and take off for someone who has had surgery. It also provides some, but not much, compression. It is true to size. RAO from Ronkonkoma, NY

These bras do run small so I ordered 38A and perfection. They are comfortable and give me the support I need. They don't flatten me out like a lot of sports bras do. I love these bras, Linda from Coquille, OR

Thanks to Customer Service's help with correct size to order, I now have a supportive comfortable bra that not only fits perfectly, but I don't have to "tug on" it to get it on or off over my head. Also, made very durably . Lisa from Lake Placid

I just had a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction, and this is the best bra I've found to use after the surgical bra. The front-adjustable shoulder straps were a huge benefit, since I was still sore and didn't have full range of motion. The band was a little snug, but the bra offered high compression, which I really needed. I highly recommend! Jennifer from St. Louis

Excellent bra, very supportive and felt good (bought to use as post-surgical bra after a breast reduction). Band is a little tighter than I normally get with a 36, but that may be because I'm a swollen from surgery. Love the straps that are adjustable in front, they make it so easy to get the fit right. I am going to keep buying these for my workouts when I've recovered, I like them so much. AE from Virginia

I am 5'8" and 243 lbs. My mom bought two of these sports bras for summer camp. I love them and have been using them everyday for school. They have adjustable straps which I needed because I am only an "A" cup. I love the sides I feel like my fat doesn't hang over. I don't really like all the hooks in front, but I have found I don't even unhook it. I don't even notice them when I am wearing the bra. My mom is getting me two more. Estee from San Diego

This was a great choice for post-reconstructive/reduction surgery! Since the hooks are in the front, they were easy to fasten. The velcro shoulder straps are easy to adjust and are very comfortable. Worth the price! Carolyn from Chicago

I just had a breast reduction and have been searching for a good fitting sports bra that would cover well and wouldn't cause pain. This one worked wonderfully! Sheri from Salem/Oregon/United States

I'm three weeks out from BR surgery, and I have bought 5-6 bras, from the very cheap to the fairly expensive trying one after another in the effort to find one that is comfortable for more than two or three hours. The Active Anita is one of the best. Support and compression are both great. It seems to run true to size (although I'm not actually sure what that means, since I was a 34 DDDD before). The band was a bit tight at first, but it has stretched a bit with wearing and the bra is now quite comfortable, and doesn't dig into my ribs or my incisions. If you don't like the feeling of snugness around your ribcage, you might want to order one band size up. Katherine from Weston, MA

I ordered this bra for post-op wear after breast reduction surgery about ten days ago. I followed the instructions for measuring my size. It arrived today, and it's definitely snug, probably too tight to wear all day. On the assumption that, like most bras, it will stretch out with wearing/washing, I am going to keep it, in the hope that after a few washings, and after the swelling goes down in a few weeks, it will fit perfectly. If/when that happens, I think it will be a very comfortable bra. If you need it to be perfect right out of the box, best order one size up. Katherine from Weston, MA

This is a GREAT workout bra. I recently started running, and this bra is perfect - way less movement! It was a tiny bit tight at first, but actually is exactly what I was looking for. I'm definitely ordering another one! Jennifer from San Mateo CA
