Poorly constructed, zipper came off tract. made to look like another brand of zipper sports bra, but doesn't have the support as other brand.

Valmont Response: The 1611A zipper construction isn't easy. It's still one of our top sellers without complaints. However, we have seen problems when you are wearing too tight of a size. It must lay right to function. Consider going up a band size. Diane from Fredericksburg,Virginia

The other Valmont bra I purchased fell apart and so did this one. This is not good quality, as the zipper broke.

I definitely like the bra...I only wished that I had ordered it in a smaller size. It does wear comfortably and the zip front makes it easy to get in and out. I do plan to order more before they are all gone. marian from baltimore, md

I purchased this bra for the purpose and convenience of the zipper front closure. I find it IMPOSSIBLE to keep the zipper from unzipping. Not very good design. I am disappointed and I am considering returning this.

Valmont Response: If the bra is too small the zipper may come open while working out. Please consider the next size 34 D/E Lynne from Atlanta, Georgia Fulton

I ordered my exact size and the bra was too large. The zipper was warped and the front top edges were stretched out so much that they folded down. It was apparent this bra was just poorly constructed. I now know why it was only 20.00.

Valmont Response: #1611 zip front sport Bra, is a tough bra . It's 90 Cotton and 10% spandex with lots of stretch. We double size b/c and d/dd so it isn't a normal fitting Bra. I assume you were the smaller of the cups either a B, or D, and as far as the Zipper, well its a novelty tough to maintain, we recommend hand washing and Line drying. Because this bra has a a lot of stretch it might not work on someone who's a B-, as it's not made in smaller size I can hardly keep this bra in stock, and the reviews have been overall very good.

I enjoyed this bra, I like the mesh strap in back seems to make it cooler for me and I have issues reaching the very center of my back so typical hooks are hard for me to fasten, I usually have to end up snapping them before hand and squeezing into the bra but with the front zipper design this takes away any issues I may have had. The only down side is as a smaller cupped female, the zipper sticks out more so than my breasts, which is fine most of the time but can make an unwanted statement in less than casual wear. But overall a great fit and design. I just had to wait about a month to get the grey one delivered, guess it is the most popular color. Tiffany from Arlington, TX USA

Not a bad bra for the price. The zipper is a little cheap so I'm not sure how long it's going to last. Amy

I bought this because the nylon zipper will not rust as the metal hooks and eyes do on the average bra. I play golf year round and sweat a lot during the summer months. Hope it continues to work well. Kathy from Ardmore, Oklahoma,USA

I purchased this bra for Breast Augmentation Recovery. This was a great find and easy to get in and out of after the procedure. Adele from Virginia

The zipper pull is on the left hand side, which is difficult for right handed users. It means we have to hold the bottom of the zipper combination with the right hand and pull the zipper with the left hand which as I said, is difficult for right handed users. Its a great bra for left handed users! It also seems to run a bit large in the band circumference. Cheryl

This is very comfy. Not superior support, but it gives me some support at home on weekends without underwires. I especially love the front zipper. Linda from El Paso, Tx

Was very comfortable, however just not enough support. Perhaps I should have gotten a smaller size. Liked the zipper in the front - very easy to get in and out of! I ended up returning due too not enough support.

Very comfortable, the zipper makes getting it on and off a lot easier than with some other exercise bras and I like the "racer back". However, its not as supportive as I had hoped (not at all like it looks on the model to me!). Elizabeth from Chicago

I love this bra! I was looking for something comfortable with support to wear around the house and this bra was the answer for me. I like the racerback and front closure. This bra stays in place and does not ride up. The zipper works fine once you get the hang of the mechanics. You must be sure to zip it all the way up until it locks in place. The zipper does stick out a little under clothes so it is not a great T-shirt bra, however, that is not what I was looking for. I was looking for comfort and support! Great value for the price too!

This bra didn't give any support. I measured myself correctly and then bought a smaller size, and even then it was too big. Karen from Lincoln, NE USA

While this bra offers good support, its construction is uncomfortable and feels "inexpensive". I find the back fabric irritating during a long work out session. The zipper distorted on the first washing.

I purchase front-close bras for the ease of removal after a hard session. This one, the zipper can get sticky so it doesn't slide easily. Won't be buying it again. debra from richmond, ca.

Bought for post breast reduction surgery, however it does not provide enough compression. I think it will be a good bra for stretching, and it is very comfortable. Samantha from Northampton, MA, USA

I purchased this bra for breast reduction recovery and it's been fabulous. ~ Comfortable ~ Supportive ~ Good coverage ~ No "uni-boob" look Will continue wearing these bras for yoga after my recovery is over. Highly recommend this bra! Marla W. from Charottesville, VA USA

I really like how comfortable this sports bra is. I could have gone one size smaller, though. Will definitely order another! Janice from Peninsula, OH USA
