The shape of this bra is super retro: I have 1950's cone boobs when I wear it! It's actually a little over-the-top for workout clothing, but it provides good support, so I'm keeping it. I use it for running, and I'm very satisfied by the lack of bounce. I also appreciate the separation: uni-boobs are sweaty and annoying. I have two main gripes: 1) There's a seam that runs right across the front of the cups, that's really bulky and shows clearly through my clothes. 2) The straps are uncomfortable near the shoulder. If you look at the picture of the back, you can see that there's a seam where the strap transitions from the colored part in the front to the plain black elastic on the back. The black elastic is really rough, and the seam tends to chafe my shoulders.

Freya Response: We’re so glad you’re getting great support and that “motion control” with this bra. Seams do provide super shaping and stability, but if you prefer a seam-free sports bra, you could try the newest addition to our Freya active family, Molded Spacer Racerback Sports Bra AA4891: This style is seam-free with spacer fabric cups, super breathable and comfy!

Excellent for exercising. Very firm support, and the encapsulation system works very well. I would actually wear this as a regular bra! Straps are comfortable and it doesn't slip at all. The cup fit was true to the universal size system (thanks for that). Kathy from Los Alamos, NM USA

I like my sports bras quite snug, since it gives me more confidence that the girls aren't going anywhere! This bra is definitely that. If I don't position my breasts within the cup just right, the center doesn't lay flat, so make sure you adjust accordingly before going for a run, etc. There is definitely a cone-shape which I don't normally like, but in sports bras I'm willing to sacrifice my preferred shape for great support.

This is an excellent bra! I was a faithful Enell wearer because of the support it offered, but always felt it was too much bra which made it hot and I wasn't really feeling the uniboob look. I began my quest for a high impact bra that would keep me cool, not restrict my breathing, and keep the girls looking great while I got my sweat on. This is the bra! The day the bra arrived, I took it for a test run on the treadmill, and it felt great. Provided support as promised, kept me cool, and kept the girls looking great. I'm very active, and it's important I stay supported all day, so I tested the bra for all day wear. This bra is very supportive, but comfortable enough that you don't feel like you are wearing body armour. The band did dig in the front on the right side, but I think once it's broken in a bit more, that will go away. I would definitely recommend this bra to friends. I am typically a 36G, which translates to a 36F on the Freya size chart, and it was a perfect fit. CC from North Las Vegas, NV

I bought the black version of this bra about a year ago. I really like it (good fit, good support) so I wanted another one and chose the red. It does NOT fit the same; it comes up too high under my arms so it chafes when I move around, and the material seems a bit thinner. Not sure if it is a difference in the overall fit/quality of this bra or a difference between the colors (which I notice shopping at other websites--you can't trust the sizing from one color to the next or from one order to the next...frustrating). Nevertheless, I wore it thinking it would be fine and can't return it now.

Freya Response: Usually when you get a black bra the fit is a little more snug in the band and the cup due to shrinkage in the fabric when the bra is dyed black. It is possible that the red will fit differently than the black. If it cuts you under the arm is it possible that the cup is too big for you? Try pulling the straps down a bit to see if that helps and make sure the band is lower on your back so the band of the bra is parallel from the front to the back-should always be even, not riding up your back.

This bra is very different from any other Freya bra I've ever tried. First, the band is very tight and not stretchy. Second, the underwires are pretty wide and extremely soft and flexible. Third, it has four hooks in four columns (for a total of 16 hooks). It is quite supportive (my breasts will still move a little, but not to the point where it hurts or damages my tissue) and the band is very tight. I would recommend you order a size up from your normal Freya size. The cups also seem pretty small and the shape is very pointy. Overall, I'm satisfied except for minor issues (such as the cups still being a little too small for me and the underwires being too flexible). Betty from Nebraska

Went up a band size and down a cup size in this bra after trying on my true size. I found that I would rather have just a little tiny bit of bounce to deal with instead of feeling like I couldn't breathe on an uphill run. After wearing it for a few weeks, however, wish I had just gotten the usual. Loosens up fast, so if you really are doing high impact stuff, tough out the tight band and you won't regret it after 3 weeks. And I like the pointy minimized boobs for running - I don't feel like I'm a danger to drivers, and I'm not so self-conscious so I get a better workout. Megan from WI, USA

This bra, while very pretty and bright, seemed to me to be a size too small all the way around. I bought a 36D, but in this bra I think I should have ordered a 38DD. I am returning it. Terri from Burlington Vt USA

A great sports bra! Comfortable, true to size, and highly effective in reducing any bouncing of the goods (I wear it for high-impact, long-distance running). Some people may want to know that it does give a somewhat pointy shape, but worn under a top seems fine to me. a runner

This bra supports both the breasts and the back during work outs. The size comparison chart recommends a smaller size cup compared to other bras like Wacoal. However, I returned the first Freya sport bra in a 32F because it was too small. I exchanged it for the 32G, the same size I usually get in Wacoal and it fit perfectly. Mary from Michigan

Pretty good bounce control, but still a little too much movement for me to wear running. Also, I found the underwire uncomfortable - it kind of cut into the underside of my breast. Rachel from Portland, or

I have recently lost 45 pounds and was unsure of what size to order. I ordered a 34DD. It was way too small...so I sent a question in on the online help site and the person who answered was very helpful...so I have sent it back for exchange and ordered a 36 E...so we will see...even though I have had problems with size the experience has been pleasant. from Lowell, AR
