I wear a 42C and I was swimming in this bra. Offered no support whatsoever. Evidently I probably should have ordered a few sizes smaller? L from Hershey

Not as comfortable as a Champion zip front sports bra, which is no longer available in my size. Perhaps you can influence Champion to bring back their offering. Rose Ann

This may not be the purpose you think of, but I just had a sterotactic breast biopsy and this bra is so comfortable, and will help me heal. I like the fact that it zips in the front so much. I will even wear one at night and will be comfortable, night and day! Constance from Sun City West, AZ. USA

This bra is just OK. It's hard to find front-closure bra's for anything, much less sports, that are great, so my expectations have gotten low. This one was comfortable and had no scratchy fabric for sure. The zip stays closed, a must-have. That said - it provides very little support. I returned the first one and sized down a cup size and, it was still too big. I'm mostly wearing this as a 'second', I wear two sports bras for extra support, but would never wear it as a 'first' or by itself. J from cedar hill, tx

I really wanted something that I can just throw on and zip up. It's very hard to find something like that in a 42C, so I was very excited when I saw this bra. However, even though the bottom band fits properly, the top of the bra, above the breast line, was very loose. It was as if the top was a larger band size. I would try a smaller band size, but I'm afraid that the zipper would break. Also, I have a short torso, so the straps were too long, and they could not be adjusted. Thuy from Dallas, TX

The zipper comes undone after only one wearing. Not sure if its because its made in China. Georgia from Rohnert Park, CA USA

I have a hard time finding any bra that is comfortable as I have such back pain most all the time. These bra's are easier for me to get on, as I had a stroke and the front zipper is easy to work, the spandex gives some relief to the back pain but not enough. Carolyn from Tacoma,WA USA

I've only washed it once and the black color has faded. Also, there is something rough on the seams which run across the over the shoulder straps.

Valmont Response:Regarding the fading of the color, this should be hand washed with no bleach and line dried. We're not sure what is rough on the straps. Maybe this is a defective bra, as this shouldn't be rough at all. Barbara from Leland

Pros: It is made of cotton so it breathes and is therefore good for post-surgery recovery keeping implants dry, clean and free of sweat. I also liked the molded cups that fit the breast shape naturally. Cons: The bra was cut too high in the armholes and too low at the rib cage so it digs in to my arms and ribcage. Also, not bad, but not great in terms of support for post-surgery recovery. Nicky from Honolulu, HI, USA

I ordered this sports bra for breast surgery. It came to me in just a few days. This is a well made bra. It fit me very well and was so comfortable. I have put this zipper to the test. It is well made with extra padding down the length of the zipper. I've had no issues with the zipper coming open as mentioned in other reviews. I'm really pleased with my purchase and will order more after I heal and determine my correct size. Thanks, Cindy cindy from cameron, Wisconsin

Love this bra! I dislike "pulling" bra off after a workout so this solves the problem. Can't beat the price. Ell Dee from Austin, TX

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
