These are the most comfortable sports bras I've ever worn. They provide good support. The front zipper makes it so easy to take on and off. Jane from Wisconsin

I am not a hard-core athlete, but if I want to walk or bike enthusiastically I don't want "the girls" bouncing and jiggling everywhere....this fits the bill for that. Submitted from TheUndies.com

Comfortable bra. Does not give the full support I would like in a sports bra. I use this for light work outs, not for running or tennis. I.M. C. from Lanai City, HI USA

Very comfortable - easy zip - light support. I have been recovering from illness and in bed a lot and this bra is very comfortable, especially if i should fall asleep with it on. Jodi from Longboat Key

Though it is comfortable, this bra provides almost no support. The straps cannot be adjusted at all. Probably a decent choice IF it just happens to fit you perfectly.

Valmont Response:It is a soft Cup, and has a supportive back, we do average out the Cups B/C and D/DD so it may be better to size down in your case to 42D/DD. It has a lot of stretch to the fabric too. Judy from PA

I was going to buy this bra but the response from the manufacturer said it should be hand washed and line dried. Hand wash a cotton sports bra? Really? Not much of a sports bra, and how did you find cotton so crappy it can't be put through the washing machine?

Valmont Response: This Zipper Front sports bra is a 90% Cotton/10% Spandex Bra, and NO Way do we want the customer to machine Wash, or Dry, very delicate. It will last much longer if carefully washed. One of our BestSellers too! CaliOak from California

I ordered various sizes of this bra to find the best fit for use as a sports bra to play tennis. I originally ordered my usual size (38D) but found it too large. In the end, I am keeping the 36 B/C, as it fits best. The zipper is easy in- easy off after a sweaty game! It seems well-made and breathes nicely. I am happy with it. Pat from Lido Beach/NY/USA

I ordered this particular bra since it is very similar to the one I can no longer get in the store. The problem for me is the size. The sizes for this bra run much larger than the bra I have purchased in the past. I have sent it back for a smaller size. Dolores from Chino Hills/CA/USA

I am a paraplegic confined to a wheelchair. When I tried the bra on the zipper did not lay flat, but really stuck out at the top. This could have been because of my being in a wheelchair and not being able to sit up straight. I wish it had fit better because I really liked the bra. Karen from Puyallup, WA

One word - WOW - describes this bra! I had doubts about buying a sports bra, but this thing is so comfy that it feels like I'm not wearing a bra at all. I will definitely use HerRoom again when I need any lingerie. Merry K from San Mateo, CA

It is very comfortable but would prefer a little more support. I thought this was an underwire bra when I ordered it. Liz from North Carolina

This bra is very comfortable for at-home leisure, but not enough support for large breasts to wear for any other activity. Susan from New Hampshire

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
