Sports Bra soft; thicker material than expected (no show-thru). Not as pretty esthetically and not much lift for my C size but does not squish breasts together. Do not like the feel of the back construction of the bra although comfortable. Like having a front closure for ease of getting into and out of the bra. The zipper seems to stay up fine when exercising.

Valmont Response: We are glad you liked some features of this bra. The cup material needs to be somewhat thicker because it is cotton. If it were not a little thicker it would not be supportive. Pat from San Diego

I ordered two (black and grey) and they both fit perfectly. I have rotator cuff injury from martial arts. Wearing these bras really helps when there is little shoulder mobility, especially with recuperating from surgery. The zipper stays put, the bra is comfortable, I'm able to move--there is no binding. I'm going to order more. I just wish there were more color varieties of this. Caralee from Lehi, UT

I'm very happy with these bras. They were what I was expecting. They're very comfortable and don't make my back hurt. I believe they are rated as low impact, but they work great for me on the elliptical and biking. Jennifer from Otsego, MN

This is the most comfortable bra, ever. It holds everything where you want it, with just the right amount of support to feel like wearing nothing at all. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This bra is very comfortable. I have trouble with the straps staying up with normal bras because I have to order such a large size, but this bra solved that problem with comfort to boot. I would recommend this product again and again. Gwen

Comfort was great, but was in a store and the zipper started slowly coming unzipped. Luckily I had a jacket on. The experience made me realize that I'd have to safety pin it or come up with some other way of securing it. I haven't worn it since.

Valmont Response: This can sometimes happen if the item is to small for you. We suggest that you go up one size. Deborah from Clerical

This item, which I ordered in black, fits perfectly and is very comfy. My only issue with it is that, although washed in cold water, on gentle cycle, with mild laundry detergent, it faded more than I would have expected or wished the very first time I washed it.

Valmont Response: We are sorry this happened, we sell alot of this style in black and this sounds like this is a very isolated incidence, we do not hear of this happening often. Elaine from Sebastopol, CA, USA

The front closing zipper will not lock and continues to unzip when I'm doing my "spinning class".

Valmont Response: This should not be happening. A review like this is very unusual. Jacqueline from Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Fl; USA

Much better than the common sports bras I've been buying. Heavy, comfortable, and well represented in other users' comments. Nora from Scottsdale, Arizona

Had shoulder surgery and needed something that opened in front and that was comfortable. This one does the trick. Thanks for the great service too! cz from Spokane WA

Bunches in front and hard to zipper.

This is THE most comfortable bra I have ever owned. I am a larger woman and have been driven crazy by bra straps falling down my shoulders, and now that I have discovered this one, i plan to order 5 more! Hillary

This bra provides excellent support, is very comfortable. I do feel a little bit "squished" when wearing it, but I like it very much. Terri from Burlington Vt USA

Material too thick and insulating I had to return this item. Women my age don't need any extra heat when exercising. ; )

Valmont Response: Lots of women wear this bra and find it very confortable for everyday wear and exercising. We are sorry to hear that it did not meet your needs. Laura from Washington

Excellent and very comfortable bra. I'm not sure how it will fair for high impact but it's perfect for walking, cycling, yoga, etc. I wear it often and find it flattering and comfy. Would highly recommend. JD from Fairfax, VA USA

Not much support for exercise that will make the girls "bounce". Ok for stationary bike & weight training. Great for sleeping! Very lightweight! Anita

There are almost NO truly comfortable bras but this one is an exception. It's comfortable from the minute I put it on and still feels comfortable after hours of wear. No, it's not terribly supportive but it works for me and has become my favorite bra. I love the service from HerRoom. Kay from Lakeview, AR

I purchased two bras (one black, one grey) to use after breast reduction. The front zipper makes it very easy to put on and get off. The fabric is very soft and comfortable. I worked out in it (three and a half weeks post op) and it was fine. If ordering to use as a post operative bra, if in doubt, order larger. I am a full "C" and the D/E fits fine. I would imagine having it fit tighter would be great if you not post-op and are looking for a smooth t-shirt sports bra. The band underneath acts as support, and because bra is so soft and smooth, it won't leave "dents" in your back. Overall, great bra! Karen from Naperville, IL

I recently had breast reduction surgery. This bra is simply wonderful. It is so comfortable and easy to wear. I especially love the way the back is designed and the cloth banding (instead of the rubber-ised or wire based underbands). I plan to purchase more. My only negative comment is that it is not available in other colors. Thank you for making my post-surgical procedure so much more comfortable!!! Joyce from Las Vegas, Nevada USA

This light support, comfortable bra has been great for right after reconstruction surgery. Now that I am back in regular bras, I wear this for the light support I needed while I slept for the first 6-8 months that my surgeon suggested. Comfy, easy care and a great value compared to all the $40-80 options. anonymous from Chicago/IL

Considered this bra as a post-op option for after breast reduction surgery. I am fit, but wore a 38 DD - 38 DDD prior to my operation, and found the 38 D/E size of the Valmont zip-front bra provided no support at all. I ordered the C-cup size, and found that to have no support either. I returned both this size and the smaller size, and went with the UnderArmour zip-front, which I love! Even if I had ordered this bra for use during yoga, I would have returned it. This might work for women who are at an A-size, but not for those of us with larger breasts!

Valmont Response: We are sorry to hear that your purchase did not work for you. A lot of women do use this bra in all size and find it works well. Clare from Rockford/IL/USA

This bra runs small in the cups; but because it's too expensive to return. I'll have to make it do.

Valmont Response: I would suggest a larger size. Lynne from United States

I purchased these for after my breast reduction surgery. They were exactly what I needed. Soft cotton, and the fit was comfortably snug. Helen from Canada
