Great fit, comfortable. I had rotator cuff repair surgery on October 2 and this garment has been fantastic. I will not be able to wear a regular sports bra for a long while. My husband and I are hikers that like to change from our hiking clothes after a long hike and this sports bra will make it so much easier to change clothes and not have to pull a sweaty sports bra over my head. I will definitely buy more. Aleta from Alexandria, Virginia

I wanted to love this sports bra. I really did. Unfortunately I only liked it. I am a 36D runner who is in search of a no-bounce sports bra. This bra might have done the trick however there was no way to adjust the straps higher. Had I been able to do this it might have eliminated the bounce. I guess it simply did not fit. Another reason I took off a star is because of the "heart shaped" seaming along the bust line. It was completely visible through the running tops I tried on over it. With 36D's bouncing around I get enough attention to my bust. No need to draw more attention to it. The Moving Comfort Fiona Bra is still my #1 until the Enell can become more adjustable.

I love the Enell 100 sports bra! I run 4 days a week and now there is no movement in my boob area so that doesn't distract me anymore. I do have to say that the material is a little itchy on the side but maybe that is because its new and I just have to make the material a little less snug after wearing it for a while.

This is the best thing that happened to my running! It keeps everything in place- I can run longer and faster. I feel supported all the time. It is tight but it's worth it; however, the bottom clasp has been cutting in my skin and it hurts. I'll take the hurt and the scratching. Amy d'Eon from Nova Scotia, Canada

This bra is amazing. There is no bounce, I've had it for over two years and it hasn't worn out! I give it four stars instead of five for two reasons: uniboob (which seems to be unavoidable in a truly supportive high-impact sportsbra) and it is a bit tight around the rib cage. For that reason I don't wear it for low-impact activities, like yoga, but save this wonderful bra for my truly exhausting activities. I'm normally a 32E and have it in both 0 and 00. 0 fits great 00 is a little snug but there is zero bounce. GMM from San Francisco, CA

Unbelievable support AND comfort! It takes awhile to get used to all the hooks, but it's so worth it and worth the money. Terri from Colorado

I am reading the reviews prior to purchasing. The big negative for me is that it does not have a zippered front. I need a support bra that has ease in putting on - I have problems with both arms that extend down into the hands. Trying to close with hooks is quite a challenge. Does Enell have a sports bra that has a front zipper? Thank you for your time and consideration of my request.

HerRoom Response: No, they do not. In fact sports bras with zippers tend to be problematic. The zipper can come undone or move down during activities. This is why Enell has hooks. J from Olathe, KS, USA

I have had my Enell bra for 4 years and it is still in great shape and holds me in place well. Its time to get a new one, due to the age. But its held up well and I don't move at all in high impact sports. Courtney from New York, NY

this bra is sensational for working out. I do high impact work outs and I have never found a bra with better support. Tammy from Parker/CO/USA

I love this bra!! I am a 36 H and this is the first bra a found that has EVER supported me enough to do anything other than walking! It squishes your boobs together quite a bit, so you get the dreaded "boob sweat" of course, but it is totally worth it. And it's not that ugly, under a tanktop people have asked if I'm wearing a corset. I even wear it to work. I was so impressed I was jumping up and down at work just to show it off!

I was very disappointed with this bra. After reading all the reviews from several different sites, I finally spent the money and purchased the Enell bra. This bra was very tight around the rib cage and I still had too much "bouncing"!! It wasn't any better than some of the other large busted bras available. I returned the Enell and would rather pay $30 for the same "movement" instead of $60. Shelly from USA

I read the washing/care instructions on the bra label before I wore it for the first time today but nothing prepared me for what happened. There's no way I can be the only person who had this issue so I'm incredibly surprised that in the reviews I read before I purchased this bra this didn't come up. Granted, I didn't read every single one, but I thought I read a fair number. Upon my first wearing of the bra, the black color bled completely through the two 100% cotton tank tops I wore while working out (White -- closest to skin AND pink -- next layer). I did about 45 minutes of cardio/elliptical and of course, I knew that I was sweating but it wasn't until I undressed that I found both tank tops were thoroughly discolored by the black dye (?) of the bra. I surely don't sweat alien perspiration so I am dumbfounded as to what is going on here. I can only hope that the color will wash out of the 2 tank tops. This is my second try with the Enell 100. First time I bought a color and (wrong) size that couldn't be returned (due to discontinuation, I think) but the reviews were so outstanding that I knew I had to give it another try. I like the support but I really dislike the fact that the outside cup seams showed through BOTH tank tops -- a most unflattering look, but it's not a terrible trade-off to get good support. Also, I wear a 32DD in every other bra and even though Enell's sizing chart indicates that 00 is the size for me... it isn't. Size 0 didn't work either. Size 1 did the trick, with just perhaps a teensy weensy bit too much space up top, but all in all a good fit. I'm literally about to wash the bra and then the two tank tops and hope for the best.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for this feedback. You are the first to share this issue. We are forwarding your comment to Enell.

HerRoom Response: Heather, we forwarded your comment on to Enell. They would like to get your bra for analysis. They have never heard of the black dye coming off at all. Someone will be contacting you shortly. Thank you for your feedback.

Enell Response: Thank you for sharing Heather's Feedback with us. As we have not heard of this happening before. We appreciate the opportunity to address her concerns. We have been in contact with Heather, along with the supplier of our fabric and we will continue to investigate why there was a problem with the dye in her bra. We will continue to communicate with Heather until we have found the cause and she is a satisfied customer. Thanks again for bringing this to our attention. Heather from New York

I wear a 38GG in a normal bra and ordered a size 3 in this bra. This is the best sports bra I have ever used - hands down! Yes, it's tough to get on, but it needs to be to keep the girls in check! I can breathe, I can move, and I can bounce all I want without worrying about my chest. This is worth every penny spent on it. Antoinette from Des Moines, IA

This bra is a bit hard to get on. But once you hook the first bottom hook and move the girls slightly out of the way, it hooks up easily. It is very comfortable and secure feeling. In watching the bounce test video, I don't think the model was fitted with the proper size, because I saw more bounce than I'd expect from this bra. I'm a 38c and get no bounce from this bra, when I run, the girls move with the rest of my upper body. It also helps with posture, helps me feel straighter. I only have one so far, so there is a lot of wearing and washing (hang dry), it still fits well and looks new. It is worth the money. Debbie from Connecticut

I'm getting back to jogging after an eight year lapse and have been trying to make do with the cheaper "high impact sportsbras" that fit a 46D woman. I was finally so frustrated I decided to invest; I've had this bra one week and I'm back to order a second one! Yes, it's a bear to get those first few hooks done; yes, it smashes you pretty flat; yes, it seems like an iron maiden before you start moving. But it totally changed my running form! Running doesn't hurt, I don't base my stride on minimizing the jarring bounce to my chest, my breasts don't move AT ALL; this must be what running is SUPPOSED to be like. Where was this bra 20 years ago when I started running; and why did I wait so long to purchase this bra?? I'll save my other bras for yoga class... linda from WI

If you are having a difficult time finding a proper fit with this bra because you need a different band/cup size than what Enell offers as standard, you should know that Enell makes custom bras. In standard bra sizes I wear a 36L/M. In Enell sizes, I needed a #3 band and #5 cup. They made me one with those things and with a couple of other changes. I LOVE IT! This is the best-fitting, most supportive bra I have ever owned. I don't have shoulder pain when I wear it and I don't feel like I have to hold on to my breasts when I jump while I am wearing it. AND my breasts don't hurt after strenuous exercise anymore. I am going to order more so that I can wear them as my daily bra. Please, try the standard sizes first, but know that there is another option if they don't fit and you really like this bra.

HerRoom Response: This is correct. Enell will make a custom bra for you for an additional $10 up charge. Just tell them you read about it at HerRoom. T. Turner from Memphis/TN/USA

I bought this for my 16 year old daughter who plays softball. I ordered 2 of the bras for her and a friend of mine who wears the same size has asked to buy one from me. I have also recommended this bra to the mother of another player on the team who wears 3 sport bras during a game. While not all bounce has been eliminated my husband and I are pleased with the result. I must state that my daughters' first reaction after putting the bra on was "this is ugly" and "I don't want to wear this!" After playing 4 games she asked me to talk to the mother of the girl who wears the 3 sport bras. Cindy from Lake View, Al USA

I wear a 36DD and as described in the measurements, I am a size 1. The bra seems to fit my cup area but the ribcage is PAINFULLY TIGHT! I once wore a tight sports bra and had to cut my workout time short because I couldn't breathe. I fear that this bra will do the same. Why so much hype? I have been debating about this bra for a while now and now that I have it in possession I'm sadly disappointed. This sucks! Crystal from Bronx,NY

I hunted for weeks for a bra that would do the job- as I am in a full contact kick boxing class- and needed a true compression bra! I couldn't be happier with the Enell sports bra! Comfortable- and actually WORKS! Lori from Carrollton, Texas

My Enell sport bra is great! My test run with it took me 6 miles with little to no bounce; it was comfortable and gave me great posture while I ran. It is easy to get on and off. One thing I did notice, though, is that it was slightly more laborious for me to breathe deeply as the compression on my chest is intense, but I am sure I will get used to that.

I am a 38DD and a new runner. This bra is great for support, no bounce. The only things I don't like are the seams across the front show through my running shirts and getting into it is a bit of a challenge. I also have a Moving Comfort which doesn't have the seams but after my first week of running I had a sore on my clavicle. This doesn't happen with the Enell. Kim from Bel Air, MD
