Fit great, but completely split along the underwire seam the first time I washed it, so I didn't have the opportunity to try it in action. So disappointed.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry to hear that this happened to your bra. We suggest checking out our Lingerie Care Guide to help with future lingerie laundering. Lydia from Wisconsin

Love this as a Sports Bra! No Bounce, Very Comfortable, Good Look, Good Design, and Good Feel. Keeps things lifted & right where they are supposed to be! Melissa from 60622

Bra fits to size really well. Support is exactly what I was looking for. I engage in boot camp, running, walking, hiking....Perfect support for all. The other important thing that I was looking for was that the front underwire did not fold under and stay flat against my body. I have tried numerous bras and this one is really great.

I really like the fit of this bra. It was very comfortable and looks great. However, my big pet peeve is spending 70 plus dollars on a bra where the hooks break after 6 weeks of wearing. I actually have several shock absorber and enell bras I purchased 4 years ago and this did not happen. DM from California

My favorite sports bra yet! Keeps the tatas in place and gently separated while maintaining a nice round shape. Super comfy and washes well. I think I own about 6 of them now! Veronica from Canada

Beautiful, but the cup sizing is way too large for me. I usually wear a D, which was too big for me so I tried the C and it is still too big! I haven't worn a B since middle school and I'm tired of paying for shipping to exchange it. I usually wear the Wacoal in 40 D and I like it fine.

HerRoom Response: Every brand fits differently, but it definitely shouldn't be that drastic. We suggest referring to Tomima’s Fit Guide to ensure for the best fit. Margi from San Diego

I have yet to find a high impact sports bra that is sufficiently tall to offer truly full coverage for me. It is tall enough that I don't worry about spilling out during forward bends and I wouldn't wear a V neck top with it in public. Lower and side support are superb without interfering with arm movement, but I still have residual upper bounce where I don't have coverage. If the front was just 1 inch taller it could have been perfect. I'd rather deal with extra sweat in between than pain on top. The band was quite tight initially on the loosest column of hooks but it does relax a bit after a few wears. I haven't yet needed to adjust to the next column of back hooks after 3 months, so that is a good sign for quality. Cup size might run slightly small but maybe it's because of the compression. I rarely use the J hook in the back as adjusting it to a comfortable position is a bit of a hassle and I can't reach the J hooks in that position while wearing it, so I have to pull it over my head. Fastening the J hook doesn't help me with the upper bounce either. I have to let out the straps to use the J hook comfortably but need to take them in for the open back orientation. I'm not sure I agree with the flexible underwire claim... it seems awfully rigid to me considering I have other brands of bras with truly flexible underwires, and I've had problems with rigid underwires causing pressure on the ribs. But I haven't had problems other than the first time trying this bra, so I'm glad I gave it a chance. It seems to do a good job of wicking sweat, but the cup has structure and a bit of thickness to it so it takes longer to dry.

HerRoom Response: We suggest trying Le Mystere's sport bra (920). This has more top cup coverage and the construction encapsulates the breast tissue without compressing. This does have a tighter fit, so from experience, I would suggest going up a band and down a cup from your normal size. Sheri from Texas

I thought this would be my new "favorite", unfortunately I could not get it on properly, it was too snug when I finally got it on. Too much of a workout getting it on. I may try again once I am 3 months post reduction surgery.

HerRoom Response: This sport bra is meant for high impact activity, so the band is intended to be extra snug for support and bounce resistance. If you are post reduction surgery, we suggest something without a wire and with added comfort like Anita Active Air Control Sports Bra (5533). This bra is supposed to be as light as air and Anita is known for making comfort bras. Mary from Pensacola, FL/USA

I am large-chested and do high-intensity workouts, so I ask quite a lot of my sports bras. I wore this bra for a workout this morning, and it did the job! The girls were held in place with very little bounce, I felt very lifted, and it gave me a nice profile under my tank top. I love that it can convert to a racerback style. Great sports bra!

Wow, a comfortable sports bra that actually passes the bounce test for high impact sports, and fits us larger gals. That's like a triple oxymoron (comfortable-support-large size). I bought and tried on several brands and styles from this site, but this is the only one that fit the bill. I was willing to take anything so long as it did the job, but this one does it beautifully as well. It maintains its support throughout the workout (some don't when they get wet), and laundered very nicely. It creates a very nice and smooth appearance, doesn't hurt my shoulders, and I didn't end up with underarm bulge or back fat. Now that's an accomplishment! As noted, the band size is a bit snug, but that worked well for me since I tend to run between sizes. The cup size was exactly what I would expect. I liked the j-hook for more of a racer-back but that requires the straps are readjusted in length to get the right fit. In either position, very comfortable. Jahma from Austin, TX

I really like the sliding hook and eye on the back straps that convert this bra to racer back. By sliding I can adjust where the straps come together on my back. comfortable and support too. Lynn from Michigan

I don't think Chantelle really made this a sports bra. There is no way I can wear this to do anything other than yoga, or just for every day use. I have non-sports bras that are more supportive. Also, the underwire doesn't line the whole breast. Very disappointing.

HerRoom Response: We suggest trying elomi's sports bra Energise (EL8041). This bra is sure to give you the support, bounce resistance and coverage you need. Also, don't forget to refer to Tomima’s Fit Guide to ensure you're in the right fit. Kate from Orlando

This sports bra delivers excellent support. It is very stiff, hence the support. It has a nice profile under an exercise top. My only minor complaint is that the connections (plastic pieces) are a little squeaky. Lisa from Olney, MD, USA

I was very excited about this bra, as it seemed to look so sturdy, AND comfortable, AND able to really hold me in/down, but the size was way off. I usually wear a 34G, and I tried this same size in this sports bra. It seemed a bit tight(er), even more so than I would want in a sports bra, but it was the cup size that was so off that I was actually surprised. Most bras when labeled as my size, are hit or miss fit-wise, and this one was a definite miss. The main problem being a lot of spilling out the sides, the cups just seemed much to small for the label. I just do not have luck ordering bras online for the most part, it did, however, seem like it would've been super comfortable had it fit properly. The quality was excellent. I would recommend if you don't normally have trouble finding the proper size/fit, and, as always, I'm very appreciative of HerRoom and their excellent customer service and wide range of sizes and styles. On to (trying) the next one!

HerRoom Response: We understand your bra fitting struggles, with bra sized sport bras for larger busts the band does run snugger than most for the added support and bounce resistance. We think if you try the 36G this will allow you more room in the band and extra coverage in the cups. Joni from Chicago

Sports bra fits perfect. Very comfortable. My only complaint, I thought I was ordering a white bra with pink stitching when it actually looks grayish blue with pink stitching. Brandi

Pretty nice bra it fits well and controls the bounce. Racerbacks are very uncomfortable for me so the regular strap option is nice. Becky

This is the best fitting bra that I have tried on, sports bras and "regular" everyday bras included. I am wider set/splayed, and so it does not bother me that the wires come up in the middle a little bit. The only warning I would give, which doesn't bother me, is that the contrast stitiching on the white bra is bright pink. It doesn't bother me though. Missy from Peoria, IL

Based on the reviews of others, I was expecting a comfortable bra made of steel! In my opinion, this bra is just okay and not worth the $72 price tag. I have bought other sports bras for less that have offered the same level of support.

Chantelle Response: Hi MLS! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. Our High-Impact Sports Bra was specifically developed for C-H cups needing the most support possible during high-impact activity, all while remaining comfortable on the body. This was achieved through a variety of measures, including the use of a flexible underwire, four hook-and-eye adjusters on the band (rather than the standard three) to allow for additional tightening of the band, and full coverage cups made of soft and breathable microfiber for optimal breast containment. There is also an adjustable j-hook on the straps of the bra to pull the straps together (racerback style) for those who want even more support. As with any bra, it will stretch over time, so it's especially important to make sure that the size (especially the band size) purchased isn't too loose to begin with, or it won't be as supportive during high impact activity. We hope this helps! MLS from El Segundo

Although it is in the size I wear, I find it almost impossible to hook it up in the back it is so tight. It is most uncomfortable, perhaps because I have never worn a sports bras before. This is definitely not for senior citizens looking for more support. if you are that age and looking for more support, I suggest a pricey regular bras and watch the video by HerRoom before you buy. It is the most instructive video I have encountered on the subject of bras.

Chantelle Response: Hi Linda! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We are sorry to hear that you're having a hard time hooking up the back of our High Impact Sports Bra. While this style is made for high-impact activity and should therefore fit snugger than most other bras, it shouldn't be that difficult for anyone to get on, or uncomfortable to wear. Have you considered trying this style in a 40F (which is the sister size to your current size, 38G)? Additionally, if you're just looking for a bra that will provide you with extra support, but not necessarily for high-impact activity, we have a few suggestions for you other than our Sports Bra: our "Rive Gauche" (style: 3281) has full-coverage, seamed cups for optimum breast structure and support, and a strong yet comfortable powermesh band that provides full support for busts up to an H cup. Further, our "C Magnifique" (style: 1891) has ultra soft, seamless cups that create a slimming effect, and a comfortable, wide band that not only provides full support for busts up to an H cup, but is also back smoothing. We hope this helps! Linda from Guilford, CT, USA

I am a distance runner and have never, ever found an athletic bra that came remotely close to fitting or that had nearly enough support for my large breasts. This bra is AWESOME! I actually look like a girl with it on, it fits PERFECTLY to my regular bra size, and it keeps me in place even in high impact activities like running. Best of all it is really comfortable, not anything like the run of the mill jogbras that I used to buy at the athletic stores that were nothing other than undersized compression bands that just smashed me and were very uncomfortable. If you are a larger breasted woman, this athletic bra should work great for you. It certainly did for me...I ordered another one! Kris from Atlanta, GA

I had to return this bra. It was ill fitted to my body. The cups were fine but the band of the bra was gapping and ill fitted.

This the best fitting, most flattering, least obtrusive sports bra I own right now. It keeps breasts in place, but the cups don't get in the way of back bend or spinal twist yoga poses. It handles sweat well and it looks very attractive under loose tops, gaping muscle shirts or other cover-ups. Bea from Mexico

Read the reviews and took a chance. GREAT BRA! Should have gone up in cup but this is the closest I've had a bra fitting at the sternum for awhile. I really didn't believe it would hold everything in, but jumping jacks and my other exercises were no problem. It seems thick, but it is really cool and lightweight. Highly recommend. I thought the band might be huge, but it is fine so far. Recommend. Jewel from Utah

Best sports bra ever! I'm an Irish dancer in my spare time and I've never been able to find a bra that keeps everything under control UNTIL THIS BRA! I can finally dance and perform pain free and also uni-boob free! It may be pricey, but it was an incredibly worthwhile purchase just like my other Chantelle bras. Kaitlyn from USA
