The band on this seemed to run larger than my other Grenier Bras, so I've sent it back for a 34D and hope that fits. I usually order 36D in there other style. So this one ran larger than expected Kathy from Fort Pierce, FL USA

I'm an active Kindergarten Teacher, and a 10-year cancer survivor. This bra is the best for comfort and look! Margaret from Livonia, Michigan USA

After reading the other reviews, I wonder if I received the wrong bra! I found this bra to be very thin material in the cups and not at all supportive for a sports bra. It was comfortable, for it was almost like wearing nothing, but this is not what I expected for support and strength in a sports bra. I sent it back and will be looking at other bras for a sports bra.

Grenier Response: This bra has been designed for light sports activities (golfing, cycling,…) and aimed to feel comfortable and not constrictive. It is one of our best sellers, sorry it did not work for you. AW from MO

I bought two of these to wear following a lumpectomy (needed something soft and supportive to wear 24 hours a day). Very comfortable! I anticipate wearing this style as my regular bra from now on (no more underwire for me). For an active sport bra, I'd want something with more support, but this is great for everything else.

Love this bra. Very comfortable and I wear it as an every day bra not just a sports bra. Looks good under Tee shirts. Christin from Bend, OR

This bra is comfortable all the time! As a teacher, I move around a great deal, lift, stretch, and talk with my hands and arms. It stays where it should all day. Kathleen from Purcellville, VA/USA

This bra was comfortable and just right to wear for the gym for weight training and cardio. I have a small frame so it is all the support I need. I wish I had ordered more. Great fit. Debbie from MA

I try other bras but I always come back to this one. I have lived in this bra for years, somewhere between 5 and 10. It has grown with me, I started as a 32B and am now a 32C. One very important thing: I have no idea why they call it a sports bra. I definitely wear something more supportive when I work out. But it is great everyday support for someone who walks a lot, runs for buses and trains, up and down stairs etc. The reasons I LOVE this bra: 1) cotton and no boning, awkward seams, padding or underwire makes it very comfortable and breathable. Wonderful during hot summers. 2) I machine wash them in cold and line dry and it seems to take years for them to start failing. 3) I am 5' 1" and wish I were a cup size or 2 smaller for proportionality. This bra minimizes me a bit (I guess b/c it is a low-impact sports bra) which slims me down. I have found no other bra that does this as well, this comfortably. 4) It comes in my size! 32C is a size that can be hard to find. 32's can be hard enough to find but when you're a C or more gets even harder, especially when you want support and/or minimization. 5) No bouncing 6) Great under T-shirts The only down sides are: 1) The natural color can hardly be distinguished from the white. I wish they had a true nude color. 2) It sits a little bit high in the decoletage area so on a few deeper V or scoop neck tops it peeks above them and I have to go with another bra. But this bra still works for me 360 out of 365 days. Love it!!! Lisa from Chicago, IL USA

Highly recommended for daily wear. I had a modified radical mastectomy with an implant and can't wear underwire. Have worn this bra daily many years. This is not really a sports bra; I wear typical sports bras for exercise as this one doesn't give enough support. I have several of these in each color. Suggest machine wash but air dry; it extends the life of the elastic and fabric. Excellent service from HerRoom too! Kay from Georgia

I am very pleased with this bra. I have worn mastectomy bras for 20 years and I was so pleased to find this bra and the fact that there is a pocket for my prosthesis. It is very comfortable and my clothes fit so much better. I was quite apprehensive ordering it because I was not sure that it would fit, but your site helped me to measure myself and I am very pleased. Thank you for your great service.

Comfortable, minimizes a bit (which I like) and flattering. Best of all, though, is the comfort. I bought 4 of them! Jude from NJ

I am bilateral mastectomee with radical on right side, thus lower shoulder, thus need about three-inches more strap adjustment. There is not sufficient strap adjustment for my needs on the right strap. I use the "liner" at the bottom to insert the bottom of my prostheses so that they do not touch my skin there. I would like to work with the mfgr. to develop this bra to where that liner would be about twice as high, to make it easier to use as a mastectomy prostheses bra. Myrtle from Nebraska

Not a lot of support, if that's what you're looking for. However, very comfortable, does not bind or move around when you're exercising. Rachael from Portland, OR

This is a great fitting bra! It is all cotton, very comfortable - especially for those who are hard to fit in the A cup range. Did not buy this for a sports bra - more as a supportive w/o underwire bra. So glad I found it! Bunny from NC

Super comfy, I am using this for an everyday bra while undergoing radiation for breast cancer. I will buy this again, and may never wear my under wire bras again! It only has a moderate amount of support, if I was wearing it as a sports bra, it would not work for high impact. Christine from Santa Fe, NM

I bought 3. They're the only kind i wear. I love them. Interestingly, I am a breast cancer survivor too, and really try to avoid the underwire, which is not easy these days. Tree from Iowa City, IA USA

I really like it because of comfort and it looks pretty good. It's not the most supportive bra, but under certain blouses and tops, it's fine. JP

I have been wearing the Grenier molded sports bra since 2000 after I had breast cancer. I love this bra! Just the right amount of support, a nice cotton band, and no padding. I like the Grenier quality and I like the service of HerRoom! Margaret from Livonia, Michigan USA
