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

I like this bra. I have tried many and this one is my favorite! Great support for full figured women. Just what we need - and where we need it! Kim from California

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.

The bra itself looks like it would be a great sports bra, but the sizing is way off and now I have to return it. Stacey from United States

Unfortunately, it was very difficult to put on and it was too small. I had read the reviews prior to my purchase which indicated that the white model ran a little large so I followed the advice and ordered one size down. Big mistake. I did order the black in the correct size so am awaiting its arrival. It was out of stock. Helaine

I am sending this item back only because the cup size did not fit... the bra is made very well and I think would give very good support... I am replacing with the Lunaire 11111, I have been wearing these for about 4yrs and like them very well, so I really don't have an opinion on the fit... sorry! sharren from Linton, IN

The cross back design is very difficult to get on and off. This design also seems to make the band not fit properly and then the bra rides up in the back. J

Great fitting sports bra. Snug enough w/o flattening out chest. I've tried many different brands/styles and this is my favorite. No seams to show through front of tops. Only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is that it stays damp for a really long time. Debbie from Atlanta, GA

I finally got around to trying these bras last night and they are not for me. The fit isn't good at all. I couldn't tell from the photo that the straps cross in the back. this makes it difficult to clasp it tight enough in the rear. also the straps tend to slide toward my neck creating discomfort. I'd like to return the two bras I bought. Sandra from Thousand Oaks CA US

Fabulous! I finally found a sports bra in my size! Besides, it looks great and your breasts don't feel like they are being crushed. The only drawback is that the band is a bit large so I started out on the third hook. Hopefully, it doesn't stretch out quickly. Maybe this is similar to the other reviewer (Aimee) who said the black is a bit looser fit. njr from Connecticut

Now there are NO more excuses for not running or working out, if you are well endowed on top. I used to wear Champion which squooshed, flattened, and gave me uni-boob. This bra gives a beautiful shape, really, really separates and doesn't show under tight fitting spandex tops. In addition, it's really comfortable. I also like that it doesn't come up to my chin, the way some other sports bras for the well-endowed do. I do pilates and sometimes I am upside down and this bra still holds me in. It's just amazing! I ordered one in black and one in white. I believe the black one is a bit looser in fit. I love this bra!!! Aimee from NY, USA

Great sports bra - the best one I've found to date. Fits very true to size - looks great under active wear tops-lots of lift and separation...not the uni-breast look or the mashed look. Band fits perfectly; no back bulges and it doesn't have the "bandage back" look that some sports bras do. It was hard to get into the first couple of times - but once I figured out a way...it wasn't that hard. PLS from Chicago,IL

I am a 34 E and run/walk on a treadmill. I usually wear 2 bras to do this, one regular with underwire and one sports without. It really limits my bouncing but is annoying. I read all the reviews on this bra and tried it. It was very hard to put on at first, but now i adjust the straps before I put it over my head and it's easier. The fabric does stretch out after the first wear, so you have to wash it after each use, which I don't like to do. It does work though, my bounce is very limited and it's more comfortable than wearing 2 bras. That said, it's not very comfortable. I like this bra best, I sampled 2. I hope this helps!

Wonderfully comfortable. Can wear this bra all day. Straps stay put on shoulders. It is really no big deal to put on, easier than most swimsuits! Sadly it did not do a really fabulous job of preventing the bounce when I ride my horse, but I just threw a wirelesss bra over this bra and it was perfect. I really love this bra and plan on buying another. Lia from Los Angeles, CA

It was tough getting into and again getting out of it. The cup was a great fit. However the band was too big and I had it on the last hook. Needless to say I had to return it. I am still in search of that one sport bra that does it all. Leslie from Maryland

The bra was too small so I have sent it back for exchange. My current jogging bra is a size 38DDD. I was looking for a wider strap to avoid shoulder chafing. I have ordered a different style to see if it works better for me. Janet from Vermont

The cup size is great and there is no friction against my skin. The racerback takes some getting used to. I run an average of 12 miles a week and this has been the best jogging bra out of the very many I have tried. My size makes it very difficult to find a good aerobic/running bra. My only complaint is that I actually am 29-30" around the back and they do not make my cup size to go with my back! O.S. from Glen Allen, VA
