Have this bra in a larger size. Can't seem to get the right fit in a smaller size after loosing a bunch of weight. It's a great sports bra. Deb from UT

This is a very comfortable bra. It's made from thin, strong material, has no-stretch straps, and the underwire is on the outside, so it doesn't rub against your skin. It's also not too long in the rib cage area; it fits well if you are petite. I'm 5' and it fits my torso well. For larger breasted women, it is probably best suited for lower impact cardio (elliptical) rather than higher impact (running). It's also comfortable enough to wear when not working out. Over all, a great investment; one of the best sports bras I've purchased over the years. T from Alaska

Very supportive and no uniboob, however it is a little scratchy in back and the straps have extra fabric in the back that has to be smoothed out, but I am running in it and it is very supportive. I would buy it again, better then the Champion sports bras I have always worn. Sandy from Clayton, CA

For sports, jogging, etc... LOVE THIS BRA! Absolutely the only bra I can run in. Yes, band sizing runs a bit small. I tend towards 32G but in this model, I go with 34DDD. If you're a 33 band, order the 34. If you're D+ cup size this is the only bra to run in, and still look like a girl. No mono-boobs here... Love the fact that under a shirt, you still have support without being overly compressed. OK, downsides... they need way better colors. Guys, really, you need to check out the latest sporty colors and fabrics... Moisture transport could be better. Actually used this bra in cross-back configuration while weight-lifting (incline-press), and let's just say it was very bad for the shoulder. But it still gets 5 stars from me because this is the ONLY bra I've ever found that I can run in. Amy from Plano, TX 75023

Good support - but This bra comes up really high in the middle and it really limits the style shirt you can wear with it. Janet from Macon, GA USA

There is not enough fabric on the end of the hook strap, which causes the hook to poke into your back and end of material is scratchy. Otherwise a comfortable, good support and good shape (no uni look) bra. Workout Woman

A few days ago, I had this bra on for 14 hours straight: 4 hours driving to/from a 6-hr, 11-mile hike, and dinner. (Not very "bouncy" activity, but lots of bend/twist, pack on/off, clothing layers on/off, etc.) It hugged securely, did not ride up/slide down (I don't think I "adjusted" all day), and I didn't have that "I need to get out of this" feeling at the end of the day. I did notice what another reviewer mentioned: although it seems there's enough material beyond the last column of loops in back, 1x-2x I felt the hooks were poking my back a bit - not enough to be an issue though. Compared to my everyday bra (Wacoal 85814, 34DDD), this bra is/has: similarly shaped but slightly smaller cups; almost an inch higher in center-front (almost a problem for someone as short as I am, but not quite). The hooks and the front height are the only things keeping this bra from getting 5 stars. CJ from Eureka, MT

Fabulous. I cannot say enough about this wonderful bra. I have a small ribcage with largish breasts and I have a very difficult time finding sports bras that hold everything in place without squishing me to death. This bra is the best I've ever owned. The stretchy fabric felt wonderful. The straps are supportive and placed well. The underwire did NOT poke me anywhere and fit nicely against my chest in the front where the cups meet. The beige color doesn't show through my tennis whites. AND there is no seam across the front so it looks GREAT under clingy athletic shirts. Although it is on the more expensive side for a sports bra, I have definitely gotten my money's worth. The design and craftsmanship are wonderful. Kristin from Virginia, USA

Sorry, this bra was too small. My fit is different in all styles so this was small compared to others that I've had. Paula from Las Vegas, NV

Best sports bra I have ever worn. I have started wearing them not only when I work out at the gym but for every occasion. I put on my other bras and right away I am missing this one. Toni from Oregon

Awesome low-impact bra for this double-D. I use it for yoga, and it stays perfectly in place through all kinds of twists and contortions and with massive amounts of sweating. No more adjusting my bra all the way through class! ACD from Cambridge, MA

I bought this to wear for yoga class, low impact but lots of moving. It's fabulous and I never give it a thought. Sometimes, I keep on it all the rest of the day! Dd from Portland, ME

I really like this bra for the fit, the comfortable smooth lining and the control. The only complaint I have about it is that the straps, which shorten with hooks, are hard to tuck in properly when they're on the shortest setting; I wish there was a velcro spot to hold them.

Fantastic fit! Very comfortable. The strap adjustment is a little odd, but would not stop me from buying another one. Perfect for aerobics and dance. Jennifer from Lakeland, TN, Shelby

I own 3 of these bras and would not trade them for anything. I started out looking for a sports bra, but these have now turned into my "T-Shirt" bras. No more back pain, and I don't feel "smushed". Britni from Lake Charles, LA

The cups on this bra run a bit large. So, I returned mine for a 34C. It hasn't arrived yet, so I can't review it. But, the one I did get felt great. Very comfortable and holds everything in place. LizB from San Clemente, CA
