EXCELLENT for jogging! This is the first bra I've found that not only works, but does NOT make a uni-boob!!! The previous bra I was jogging in smashed me flat, and I was always worried about the damage to my breast tissue (after having two kids those girls have been through enough!). So I was very excited to find a bra that kept the girls separated, and even more pleased when I got my bra and went jogging for the first time. I have had it about a month, and it works wonderfully. I have been professionally fitted, and was told I was "more like a 31," so I guess I'm a small 32. I ordered this bra in a 32, and had to start with it on the last set of hooks. But changing the torso size changes the cup size and it fits me well...and once again, it WORKS! Excellent choice for high impact activities for us larger chested gals! If the fit is right, you won't be disappointed!! Anne from Va

This sports bra gets the job done! I went to a trampoline bounce house and they did not budge! The shape is a little bit conical as shown in the image but it provides great lift and perfect for running or any other intensive exercise. Michele from St Petersburg

This is my favorite sports bra yet and I have tried them all! The cup shape is pointy at first, but softens after the first wash or two. This is the first bra that I wear to work all day and then run in after work. I also wore it for my recent marathon which is the ultimate test and I thought it was great. If they ever get new colors I will buy another. rachel from belgrade montana

Great bra. Very comfortable, incredibly sturdy, and finally works like a sports bra but is supportive and attractive enough that I don't mind wearing it all day. I bike commute on a regular basis and previously had been doing the double-bra horror regime, then switching out for a nice day bra when I got to work. This is a welcome change.

The first time I was sized correctly for a bra may have been the best moments in my life the next best may have been finding this bra. I was never a runner but had a friend that always wanted me to go with her but I couldn't, my boobs just bounced around too much. I had to wear two sports bras and I was very uncomfortable. Now that I have this bra I am a runner (just finished a half marathon 2 weeks ago). This bra holds your boobs very well, they do not move or bonce while running, in fact you forget you even have big boobs with this bra. If you are athletic at all and your boobs bug you, buy this bra. If you want to workout but never have been able to find a bra to support you, buy this bra. Barbara from WI

This is a great running bra. I still bounce but it is not the same kind of bounce I had from my compression bra. With my compression bra (Enell) both breasts bounced together like a large football-shaped weight on my chest. My breasts still bounce with this bra but they are better supported by the individual encapsulation of the cups. My breasts don't hurt after I run like they used to. I really like the underwire support also. I wear a 38D in an everyday bra but ordered this in a 36D and it fits perfectly. It is nice and snug on the last hooks so I will be able to tighten it up as it stretches out with wear. My breasts don't look too pointy in this bra. They are well supported and perky. It looks more like they would in a regular bra...not the usual uni-boob sports bra look. Kristin from Lawrence, KS

This does run small. While I wanted a well-fitted exercise bra, the band ran too small. The cups were very tight and, as the ad said, encapsulated. Incredible coverage. The fabric and cool max structure are divine and by sizing up (if possible) it makes a good exercise/daily bra. I'm going to try the 34H Diane from Memphis, TN

The girls in my yoga class noticed this bra under my top and they wanted to know what it was. They could see the bra work in action in a very active ashtanga yoga practice. Joan from Henderson, Nevada

This bra was pointy and uncomfortable for me. It seemed like would give good support but it didn't fit comfortably.

Freya Response: This is our Freya active bra. It is built for EXTREME support, hence the seams for lift and shaping. However, if the size is wrong, the bra can't do the job it was made to do - support the breast tissue, and it certainly won't feel comfortable. It sounds as if you did not have the correct size.

This is a "pretty" sports bra but - does not fit me very well - it also gives a very "pointy" look which to me looks weird. I would wear this to run outside in but - no way would I wear this to the gym. I think the pointy-ness draws attention to your chest area - and not in a good way! but - nice color and it is made well so - giving 3 stars for that.

Freya Response:4392 has a more “European” silhouette –very lifted and defined –which creates a longer leaner look in the torso. Very often the “pointy” look will be exaggerated if you’re in the wrong size (that is, the cup or band is either too large or too small). Ashley from OFallon, IL USA

Awesome sports bra! Incredible bounce control. No uniboob. High quality fabrics. True to size. Great comfort-- no armpit chaffing, comfortable straps. Looks beautiful by itself and under form-fitting exercise tops. Under loose shirts it creates a pointy silhouette that I don't prefer. G from Seattle, WA, USA

This bra is great! I just started running & was looking for something that would keep the bounce to a minimum. This bra does the trick & it comes in a pretty color. With my size I don't usually get a lot of color choices so it's nice. I would definitely recommend this bra to anyone of my size. Haley from Mooresville, NC

I love this bra! I can wear it all day and feel supported but not constricted. I agree that the shape is a little "1950's" compared to what I'm used to, but that softens with wear and it's better than the dreaded "uniboob". The red is very bright and fun- I wish it came in more colors- I would own them all! Amy from Portland, Oregon

This bra provides wonderful support when I run. However, I had to start on the farthest hooks in. That means that as it stretches out, it will be of no use to me any longer. I also have found that it rubs my skin on the side of my breast just below my armpit. My skin became very irritated. I will use this as long as it lasts, but I would not buy it again.

Freya Response: If you’re fastening the bra on the farthest hook in, you need a smaller band size. The rubbing and irritation you’re experiencing is because the band is too big and it moves over your skin again and again and chafes. Luckily we make this bra in 28- and 30-bands! A smaller band would stabilize the bra, and would eliminate the chafing. Oh, and when you go down a band, you need to go up a cup size to maintain the same cup volume. Dawn H. from Redondo Beach, Ca

I LOVE this bra!!! I haven't been able to run since I was a D when I was 15 years old because it hurt too much. But now, even though I am double that size, I can run and I feel great! It is super supportive. But it does feel a cup size smaller than labeled. Then again, that may be why it is so secure! Either way, I'm getting another one. Rachel from Palo Alto, CA

I would like it more if it was true to size. I was so excited to find this in my size and saw all the reviews saying it was true to size but it is one size too small. It is hard for me to find anything in my size and they are always out of stock of one size larger. So I can not really make a great review on it as I am unable to truly appreciate it.

Freya Response: We don’t always wear the same size in every bra –there are variations in size even within a brand. This bra is fabulous, and I don’t want you to miss out! I would strongly recommend you try this style again in a larger cup size. Don’t be afraid to “finesse the fit” by going up or down in cup and band for that perfect custom fit!

Doesn't prevent bounce like I thought it would.

Freya Response: This bra is built for maximum support with double layer fabric and stabilizing seams. However all of these features can’t do the job if the size is not correct. If your breast tissue is fully contained in the cups you should feel total support and no bounce. If you’re accustomed to wearing US brands you might find you need to go up a cup size in this style.

Shoulder straps could be longer. Still too short even on adjustment to longest length. Bra cup makes breast look "pointed." Excellent support when running with minimal bouncing and NO unaboob which is what I was looking for when I ordered. Maybe after a few washings the straps will "loosen" up. Otherwise very well made sportsbra. Margo from Beaufort SCC
