I wear a size 32 C. I bought a 32 D because these Bra's run small. I have no problem with the velcro becoming loose. Kristin from Ferndale, CA, USA

I finally found a bra I can put on myself and is very comfortable day after day. I have several arthropathies that limit my range of motion. It has made putting on traditional bras nearly impossible. So I began trying front hooks. This one has worked the best. I love the velcro straps. They lay smoother than I anticipated they would. I can adjust them from the front for custom support each day. I've had no binding and pinching. I am satisfied with the separation- not as uni-booby as some front hooks have been. The fabric is soft, smooth, yet very firm making it quite comfortable for all day wear. LunaRaevn from WA

I purchased because I was getting implantants and was suggested to get this type of sport bra by my Dr. Fit Perfect, so comfortable, I am thinking about ordering another one because it is so comfortable. Perfect fit...... The customer service was very helpful as well, because I needed it before I left town for the surgery and the lady I spoke to took care of everything over the phone when I called to check on it getting here in time. She is the reason You have this sale. Thank You..... Linda Linda from Oxford, MS

This sports bra runs small. I wear a 38 DD regular bra. A 42 D is fitting in this style. I could not breathe in the 38. The front closure & adjustable Velcro straps make this item a winner! Alston from Richmond, VA

Really nice in every way with wide strong straps and comfortable supportive cups. The only thing is that the straps (where it touches my back skin), it pokes and chafes my back skin so I have to limit the wear to only several hours a day; I can't wear it all day, everyday without bruising or chafing my back skin.

I am not happy with this bra. I selected it for 2 reasons: the photo looks like one's breasts are held separately, but my experience is "uni-boob." I also looked forward to the adjustable straps, but they are held with Velcro, which seems to hold well when I put it on, but one of the straps released (on 2 separate occasions) while I was walking my dog -- not a vigorous activity. I am happy with HerRoom, just not this particular product. We are very sorry for these circumstances with the product and we do apologize. Certainly our quality control will review the velcro on this product again since we never heared such a complaint. Once again, we are sorry and maybe one of our other sports bras like Anita Molded Sports Bra 5527 and Anita Momentum Sports Bra 5529 would work for you. Sarah from Chicago

This bra is a wonder! I had surgery for replacement of implants and a lift on one side. I was miserable in all the post surgical bras. Miserable!! Every other bra was too tight on my ribcage or sagging, or flattening. I went through a dozen bras until I found this. I am athletic and slim and this bra works for all my impact activities. I love that I can unhook the top or bottom hooks after a workout. It washes beautifully. I am the proud owner of 5 of these bras. Anita, please don't ever discontinue this model! Renee from CT

I like the bra, but it does roll up at the bottom and it is a bit hot for the summer...but works pretty well...has 8 snaps which is a bit more than I like..you have to adjust the straps down a bit or it cuts in under your arms...but it is better than some I have tried. Judy from yuba city

Great product. It is comfortable and provides excellent support. It's also very well made, and maybe that's why it's a bit pricey, but this is a very good product, so I am not complaining about the price. Joaquina from Bethesda, MD

I had a breast reduction a week ago and your bra was very comparable to what my doctor use after the surgery. So I am pleased the this product. I was able to switch with both bras with no problem. Thank you. Nellida from Antelope, CA

There was nothing wrong bra. I did follow the measurement instructions but the cup size was much too small and my breasts were coming out of the top. I will return. Patsy from Covington, LA USA

It was a little tight for me but otherwise fit okay. The Velcro straps come undone without warning!

Anita Response: This is a sport bra with the specialty of the strap adjusters in the front for easy access. We are sorry that the velcro came undon all of a sudden. We have never heared a complaint like that but certainly will inform our quality control about this. Cindy from Lorane, OR

I think this bra is a wonderful sports bra. It just wasn't seperating enough for me. I only had it on for a few minutes, but felt very comfortable. I've had breast cancer and with scars no seams is really good. Judith

It is very small sized compared to other bras of the "same size." I hope it fits when I am healed from surgery, as it does not now. Somewhat disappointed.

Anita Response: We feel sorry about that it does not fit you very well. Because this is a front closure bra, the shape and construction is a little different, so we always recommend getting fitted for you correct size before purchasing. Janet from Marshfield

this is the first bra I've ever found in a 44A. I've been looking my whole life! I'm thrilled to find something that fits. I would like it to have a little fiberfill though instead of just fabric. c from nj

Would like for the cup material to be a little heavier.

Anita Response: If you are looking for a more supportive sport bra then go with our styles 5527 or 5529. Those have a bit more support. Barbara from Americus, Ga USA

COMFORTABLE! Great adjustability with the Velcro straps and this is exactly what I was searching for when I had breast reduction surgery in October of 2011, but never found it until now. The straps don't dig and the band is terrific. My plastic surgeon said I had to wear a front closure sports bra and what a challenge it was to find a comfortable one. Never did find a comfy one post-op and I was miserable. All healed now and just want comfort for every day. I LOVE THIS BRA! It gives a nice line, also. Bevy from Bristol, VA.

I loved the quality of the bra. Unfortunately, it did not fit and it is being returned for a smaller cup size. Hopefully that will work. As soon as I can determine the correct size, I will be ordering a supply. Maria from Virginia

Firstly, I ordered 40E and had meant to order 42E. Regardless, the bra certainly looked comfortable and well constructed. I suppose I want this bra to double for both everyday wear and for sports. With that in mind, it was returned as I did not like the many hook and eyes that ran down the front. If using for just sports, I think it would be excellent. Gail from Ridgefield, CT

This is my new favorite around the house bra! I got the 44B and there is a little looseness in the cup. I tightened the straps and put in concealers and that did the job. I now see that it comes in a 44A. I am getting the other color in the A. I especially like that the bra comes down 5 1/4 " on the sides. Totally smooths out the side bulges and sits around my rib cage so there is no digging in. The hooks are a trick, so I hook them up and then put it on over my head. The straps adjusting in front are a bonus. They look bulky, but are not. Virginia from California
