I do a couple of step class that includes a lot of up and down movement. I require a lot of support and I definitely found it in this bra. I am very happy with my purchase and would definitely order more bras in this brand. Rjoxy from San Rafael

I have a fairly large bra size and it is always difficult to find a sport bra that is well fitting, doesn't give you a uni-boob look, is easy to get in and out of and works! This one does all of that.. Now if only it came in a color other than white. Dale from IL USA

The bra works once you get it on. The issue is getting it on. I do yoga 7 days a week and I still had a hard time maneuvering myself into this contraption. I lengthened the straps to get it on but now need help to readjust the straps in the back to make them tighter. I simply don't have long enough bendy arms to do so. 2 stars seem low, but seriously, it's going to take some serious practice to get used to getting into the bra without breaking into a sweat. It just didn't seem to be thought out well, planning wise. The criss-cross back is great so you can wear all sorts of styles of tops without having exposed bra straps, but I guess I expected more from a $65.00 bra. Jen from San Francisco, CA

Champion foolishly discontinued all of their full-support sports bras in favor of flimsy seamless things that don't even serve me well for low impact workouts. Their loss, Bendon's gain. I love this bra. I didn't realize that I spent a lot of time readjusting my old bra until the first time I worked out with this one. Two hours in the gym and not one adjustment that I could recall. It fits perfectly in the band and the cups (not always the case for bras with smaller band size and larger cup sized bras.) Good quality. Great support. I immediately bought more.

This is definitely the best sports bra I've tried yet. I barely bounce (there is some but with my cup size I expect some). Most other bras I'm all over the place. I mean I probably move up and down at least a foot in other bras. This one it was barely noticeable at all which is pretty much a miracle if you ask me. It's not super comfy but not bad. Better than my last sports bra and doesn't chafe me at all (a lot of other ones do.) It is a bit of a pain to get on but not much worse than a lot of others I've used. Overall I would highly recommend for someone who is very large busted. Leisha from Haslett, MI , US

Wonderful shape, fits great on, no bounce. But is next to impossible to get on. You have to lengthen the straps to get on, but once one, you can't shorten them. Maybe I'm missing something? Mary from New Orleans

Seems like a great bra. I just received it, I think it was backordered. So Ive only worn it 3 times. Very comfortable, and already have had a few compliments on it. I will buy one in black also. Carey from Bothell, WA USA

This is the best sports bra I've ever purchased. The support is fantastic, it doesn't chafe, and it wicks well (no more sweat running down my cleavage and collecting in the band). I use it for running, and whenever I wear one of my old sports bras for yardwork and the like, I wish I were wearing it instead, since it's so much more comfortable. Like other users noted, it's hard to put on, and the band seems a bit large (I wear a 34g in Fayreform, but had to get a 32g in this one). It's totally worth the hassle, though. am999 from Portland, OR

Sizing: band and cups are exact.
Support: the back straps stretch, the front ones do not, so that allows it to move with you, but keep you supported. When you get past a D cup or so, some movement is to be expected, but this is minimal.
Fit: it wasn't as hard to get on as I expected. Initially, I couldn't get my arms in so I took it off and lengthened the straps. Ah! Now I was fine. It was a bit more difficult than a regular bra, but not horrible. Everything feels fine, sits well, except an irritation from the back strap plastic thingee. Initially, I thought I'd not like it because of that, but I left it on for a few hours and within about 20 minutes stopped noticing it. When I exercise, I do notice it's a bit scratchy in the back, but am hoping that will dissipate over time. Annie from Chicago/IL/USA

This is a well-constructed bra with many extra features that sound nice in print. However, after running for a while, it becomes quite heavy. I also still have bounce, and the bra is very large. It's the correct size, but the bra itself is just big. I have a small frame with a large chest, and I feel like my entire upper body is encased in this large, bulky, and sweaty sports bra. If you are petite, I would not recommend it. Ashley from AR

Absolutely impossible to get it on! Maybe for someone with a smaller chest, it can be (uncomfortably) pulled over, but I couldn't do it. Can't image trying to get it on every day for exercise. I tried to do it with the straps uncrossed (like a standard bra), but then the bra gapped in the front. A disappointment. Lesson learned: only buy t-back/cross strap bras that open in the front.

This is the VERY first sports bra that I have bought that I actually like! It is built like a bra, which is great for women with large breasts. It is very tricky to put on by yourself- still need help from my husband to get in the darn thing but it is worth it! If you need a REAL bra to work out in, that happens to also be a sports bra, this is the bra for you! Oh, and it is definitely true to size. I wear a 38G in a regular bra as well!

This bra was the most supportive of all I tried (7). It was true to size. It is not that hard to put on provided you can reach around well. I gave it a 4/5 because the underwires rubbed spots on my sides (I have this problem with regular bras also). I did return it because my skin is very sensitive and cotton works better for me. I kept the natori and am waiting for my lunaire which I had to exchange the cup size. taphath from charlotte, nc

Ordered the Anita Molded Sport and the Bendon Sport Extreme. The Anita Sport had no support and runs a size or two smaller, does not separate the breast, looks like a unibra/unibreast/breastloaf...sending back. Kept the Bendon Sport, nice support and keeps the girls separate! Doris from Chicago

Big boobs are great - until you try exercising with them. Before this bra I was forced to wear two or three sports bras to keep my boobs from bouncing all over the place - this bra is amazing and does the job. I love wearing it for everyday use because it keeps my girls perky and in line. I want to buy several more. Jessica from huntington beach ca

While the construction of this bra is well made the fit is less than desirable. The cups fit but the underside is loose and does not help support. I would not recommend this bra nor would I buy another. Mary from Prescott, Arizona, USA

I ordered 2, one black in 34G and one white in 34FF. I thought I could see which fit better and exchange the other for the best size. Though they were both 34 bands, the black was looser. They are challenging to put on, but once you get the thing on, it really does fit like a dream. The white one must have a bit too small of a cup size, because the wires do poke forward in the cleavage area a little, not that it would show when something was over it. However, it feels fine, and offers much better support when I do my own jogging test, so I'm going to keep it like it is. I ordered an Enell 100 as well, even without underwires, it seems to produce less bounce than this Bendon Sport. Since I wear a 34DDD in Wacoal (my favorite bra 85121), and have a sports bra- Shock Absorber UK34G, as well as 2 bras by Fantasie 34G, and one Anita 34G, I thought that 34G was the right size to order. Since I've been losing a little weight, I thought maybe I'd also try the 34FF. Looks like they are fairly consistent with other brands, except for the black one having a bit wider band, as others seem to have noticed too. I would recommend this bra to any who are willing to put up with the fact that it'll take some time to put it on, since they also know how hard it is to find sports bras in our size, and are also okay with some bounce. I've never found a sports bra that had no bounce, since I'm a pretty big size. It has a really nice look, and the straps are convertible from cris-cross to regular straps. I tried it the regular strap way though, and it seems like it won't keep the straps from sliding down so I'm going to wear mine with the straps crossed in back. Even though that's why it's so hard to put on. Patty from Santa Barbara

I was really excited to find this bra because the larger you are, the more you need a sports bra, but there are very few that go up to large cup sizes. It does a good job minimizing bounce, supports and separates without smashing, and is comfortable to wear, though maybe not all day. I originally ordered this bra in a 38G (my usual size), but the band was huge and I returned it for a 36G. The 38G I received was a racerback, but the 36G isn't and I'm not sure why. So far, the best G cup sports bra I've found, though I agree with comments that it takes a long time to dry. Yvonne from Springfield, Missouri

I did like this bra at first. The crisscross designed was a great idea. A very annoying thing about bras of all types is the shoulder straps falling down. They did not and it was great. It seem to keep my bras from falling down. I have had this bra for 3 weeks and only worn it around 6 times. The metal rods are already poking out in the front of the bra in the cleavage area and there is already a hole in the bra from it. I thought that at 70 dollars this bra would have better craftmanship than this. I am a 40G so i need a bra that will last more than 6 times of wearing it. I basically wasted 70 bucks on this. What is even worse is now I have to do the process of shopping all over the internet for another sports bra. :(

I normally wear a 38DD, but this seems a little big. For the money, it was not for me. It didn't seem to have the extreme support it claimed to have. Carla from Arkansas, USA

Wonderful sports bra. There is no pointy look at all and this bra has plenty of support and no uniboob. I also have one in white. Michele from GA

I returned this bra for a 36E. I think the cup size runs a little small. The 36E should fit great. Other than that I can't wait to get my new bra and start using it. It is comfortable. I have been looking a good Racer back sports bra for a long time. Note: hard to get into, but if you loosen the straps... it makes it easier. Doreen from UT/USA

This Bra is extremely hard to get in and out of with the criss cross back, the second day I wore it it ripped on the top connected to the strap. I love the way it fits once I get into it. Vickie

Fits well although one has to be a bit of a gymnast to put it on. Gives good support. HBP

I really like the look of the bra when its on. It fits nicely in the cup size. However I ordered a 32F and found the band size too big, but I've already worn it so will keep it. Also I find that the straps dig into my shoulders but I imagine I will get used to that at some point. Probably the best looking sports bra (I got the black one). Nicely made with nice materials.

HerRoom Response: When your band size is too large, it puts more strain on your straps. This is why you are feeling this. Jodi from Calgary, Canada

The support on the Extreme Out Sports Bra is great. The fit is snug but keeps your shape. My only complaint is that it seems to hold on to odor. I usually wear a workout bra for 2 days (hung dry in-between use) but this one has a almost rubbery smell to it on the second day. Debbie from Foster City, CA, US

Racerback straps rode up my back and it ended up feeling like I was wearing a halter top. Very uncomfortable. On the plus side, cup size was accurate and quality of fabric were top notch.
