It is the first sports bra I have ever had that actually holds my chest in place. I no longer have pain after I run and don't need to wear two bras to hold my 36DD chest in. There are a lot of snaps in the front but it is totally worth it because you don't have to slip it over your head and stretch it out. Jamie from Phoenix, Arizona

These bras are the best I've tried, and last a long time. (I've had one for three years now that is just starting to provide less support for running.) Here's a pro to think about: I like to hike and backpack, so it is VERY helpful to have all the clasps on the front. That goes for lifting weights, too. So many full-figure sports bras have a bunch of clasps in the back, as well as the strap adjusters, which rub and hurt for those activities. One downside: because your breasts are just pushed together and held down tight, you can get quite the sweat going. When I get serious exercise, this bra is wet, and stays that way for a while. I also have occasionally had a rash between my breasts. (For that, again, I'm talking about when you're hiking for 14 miles with pack.) I would love to combine this design with some of the others out there, but for now, it's my favorite! Claire from OR

Sized myself according to directions, but this ended up being too big. Also, the straps are not adjustable. Given that I'm short, the straps were about an inch too long, which meant that I still had a lot of movement (bounce) in the bra. Probably good for someone taller.

Enell Response: Once you have the bra on there are a few fit tips to check for.

1.) Make sure you have adjusted your breasts by lifting them up and pout so they are held in the center portion of the bra.

2.) Also the shoulder seams should be laying falt acrtoss the top of your shoulders. You may need to lift up and pull down in the back after the bra is on.

Please view the fitting video that shows these fit tip. JJ from Oregon

This bra was everything I wanted, plus. It is very comfortable; my workouts and runs are less strain on my body. One minor complaint, it is a little long in the shoulders, so it's not as supportive as the video, but it's the most supportive sports bra (and comfortable) I have ever worn. Carolyn from Connecticut

This bra is perfect for running. My breasts don't move at all. I wear a 36DDD-G bra and the size 2 fits great. I don't like the seaming in the cups. It is quite visible with most of my athletic shirts. I find I have to wash this bra after 3 uses to shrink back to an effective size. This is the best bra I've found so far Mary

This a really well made bra. My bras get a workout and I have been on a long search for one that will provide compression and stability. It looks like something my grandmother used to wear but hey, I've shaved 15 strokes off my golf game because "the girls" are comfortably tucked away. It does what I think a sports bra should do. Really happy with my purchase. Gail0907 from Canada

At first I had ordered a size 1 because I wanted to be sure that the band was secure under my bust. Well my breasts fit great but the band was waaaaaay too tight, I couldn't breathe. So I went to the next size up, a 2, and the band was perfect, although my breasts did not seem to fit as well as they did in the size 1. Overall I think it is a great product. It feels great under my clothes and I don't have to worry about my breasts bouncing uncontrollably/repositioning/falling out when I am physically active - what a relief! Equestrian from US

I have used this bra in my jazzercise classes for two years, going 3 times a week. It still has not lost its shape or effectiveness. It may be a little difficult to get into (!) but there is VERY little bounce for me and I am a 32G in most bras. I absolutely love this sports bra; it is worth every penny!! Becky from IL

I am very short, 5'1, so I found this to be too long. Actually it was more the hooks were uncomfortable. I've only wore it once, so maybe I need to try it again.

Enell Response: The ENELL Sports Bra is designed to fit very snug. It is a good idea to use the bra for short periods of time at first so your body can get used to the feel of the bra. Also, Please double check the shoulder seams are laying flat across the top of your shoulders. Once the bra is on you may have to adjust by pulling the straps up and down in the back for the best fit. Linda

I'm a 42 D and I bought the 4. It fits very tight which is good. The cup size was a little big but you can't tell because it fits so snug. It pulls everything down. I had a hard time jogging on the treadmill because it hurt so much. Now I don't feel a thing. It keep the girls right in place. I bought 2 bras and I will buy more. It does the job. susan from fairview, nc

I was disappointed to find that the bra I ordered was too big. I fell right in the middle of the listed size chart for a size 5 but when the bra arrived it was very roomy and therefore provided none of the support I need. If return shipping were free I would try the next smaller size, but it costs so much to ship it that I don't want to take the risk.

Enell Response: The ENELL sizing is not the same as standard bra sizing. ENELL Sports Bra's come in 10 sizes, 00 - 8. To best fit for an ENELL Sports Bra we recommend taking your actual measurements. Please take the following two measurements, with your everyday bra on (not a minimizer or sports bra).
1. Measure around the fullest part of your bust (BUST MEASUREMENT).

2. Measure around the rib cage directly under the breasts (RIB MEASUREMENT).

Once you have taken your measurements please refer to our ENELL size chart. Melissa from Cincinnati

I normally wear a 38DDD bra, so I ordered the size 3 sports bra since that is what the sizing chart told me to purchase and I was so disappointed when I received it. I understand sports bras are suppose to be more snug then a regular bra, but I couldn't even hook one single hook on the thing when I tried getting it on.

Enell Response: You mentioned that you currently wear a size 38DDD bra, however the ENELL sizing is not the same as standard bra sizing. ENELL Sports Bra's come in 10 sizes, 00 - 8. To best fit for an ENELL Sports Bra we recommend taking your actual measurements. Please take the following two measurements, with your everyday bra on (not a minimizer or sports bra).

According to measurements one is suppose to take for correct sizing-- I believe I'm between size 0 and 1--(30"/38") but I can breath in a size 1 !!! I now have 3 size 1s. (;]) I would recommend this bra. Only wish I had found it sooner, and maybe I wouldn't have painful bra strap indentations in my shoulders, for which I had breast reductions to try to help relieve the pain, and which is still very painful with regular bras. I only wear this bra when doing physical actives; as it is really not very fashionable....(;]) 8AM to 2PM+/- .... maybe I should wear it for a longer time...???? (;]) ----]and you should see my collection of bras, trying to find one that would work for me over time. They all seamed to work at first then the pain would come back....

Could not wait to get this item in. First shipment the size was too small and needed to exchange for larger size. The process was easy and recieved replacements within a week. Wore the Enell Sports Bra to Taekwondo, for two hours of physical training and loved that I can do the jumping jacks and move around without the Bra moving around. Kept everything in place, very comfortable and kept dry. Really like the product, I am glad I brought two of them and would recommend them to my friends. Tammy from San Antonio, Tx, USA

I did all the measuring for ordering the bra (30"x38"), but found the "0" a bit too constrictive !!! So I'm now happy with a size "1". Finally A GREAT bra for horse-backing ridding and sports, but not a Fashion conscious one for me as I don't fit in it quite right, nipples are not were they should be in this bra ! But my shoulders are feeling better and I did order 2 more "size 1s"!!! Adrienne from Redwood City/CA

Good fit; comfortable. I actually need something with underwires to give my breast more support. However, I really like the comfort of this bra. I have indentations on my shoulders because my breast are so heavy. Need the wider strap for comfort. Jackie from Oklahoma City Ok

Best supportive and comfortable sports bra I have ever owned. While wearing it under tees/blouses my breasts appear much smaller as well as my ribcage, which makes me look thinner - woohoo! Just wish it was a little longer to hug my waist. The only thing I don't like is that the seam that goes over the breasts shows through clothing. Wish it would come in different colors that are not shiny. Patricia from Weatherford, TX USA

As far as bounce... this bra will not let you bounce. For that it is amazing. But as far as wearability it has awkward seams that run across the boobs that give an odd and unnatural look under clothing. Unfortunately, this bra would not work under amy shirt I would workout in, so I returned it. It is definitely made to be worn without a shirt. If you work out that way... this is the bra for you!

Enell Response: I understand your concern about the arch seam. I did pass your comments along to our design team and here is what they told me: "Currently our sport bra is made with the arch seam because it gives the bra a more form fitting pocket for the breasts which helps to minimize the "uni-boob" look. We have done some trials using a seamless molded cup, but the support of the bra was greatly compromised. This is not something we are willing to eliminate in the design. However, we are always searching for a better way and are now looking into alternative seams. If we discover something that will work as well and give the support we want, we will most certainly implement it into the design at that time." Catherine from San Diego, CA

I give this bra a five star rating and even above. Finally I have found a bra that works! The straps do not fall down!!! It feels like you have nothing on,and the support is great. The Enell sports bra 100 lives up to its name . I have told several friends and they like it also. I cannot say enough about it. Thank you, Kimberly kimberly from columbus, ohio usa

When I first got this bra I couldn't wear it --- it was the middle of summer and when I tried it on I thought I would die of the heat. I also thought I had bought the wrong size because it felt like a straight jacket made of iron. Now that it's winter, I recently tried it on again and am loving it -- I wore it to a Crossfit session the other day and did some split jerk Olympic weight lifting and NOTHING MOVED - it was great. My rib cage measures 33" and my "girls" measure 41" so the size 2 is the best fit for me but even so I find that I do have some constriction and redness at the top of the side seam after wearing for many hours. Hopefully by the time summer rolls around again, I'll be so used to this bra I'll be able to wear it even in the heat. I've ordered another bra exactly the same and I've also ordered an Enell light bra so will be able to compare the two when it comes. Cathy L from San Jose

This is the best sports bra I have ever purchased. I would definitely recommend this bra to others. There is no bounce at all. It is the perfect sports bra for women with large breast. I plan to purchase more. CeCe from SC
