LOVE this exercise bra. The terry inside is so comfortable and makes a world of difference. I don't have any problems with the bra cutting into me or the hooks scratching me. I can run 3-6 miles without any discomfort or ridiculous bouncing. Jennifer from United States

This is a great sports bra. I normally wear a 34F in regular bras and having owned one of these sports bras before knew I needed to size up. But when I received the 36F it was really too tight. I returned it to exchange for the 38F.

HerRoom Response: Thank you for sharing your size journey. We feel this bra runs true to size. Sheila from LAFAYETTE

This bra is great for hiking and everyday wear. I have had several of these bras and they hold up well. I have small shoulders and straps always fall off. It does not happen with this bra. Caren from Michigan

Snug for comfort and very supportive so I don't bounce during exercise. I am a B, but wonder if the larger sizes would support as well??? Kathryn from RALEIGH

Band size smaller than 42 - did not fit even on outermost hooks.

HerRoom Response: This is a maximum support sports bra so will have a firm fit to the band. But, it really sounds like you need a larger band size. Elzie from USA

My all purpose bra - I can do a 5K race and enjoy a hearty "second breakfast" afterward. I am completely unaware that I even have a bra!- No flopping or bouncing. Very secure and comfortable. I often forget to remove the bra when I go to bed, realize this the next morning when I go to get dressed! I have tried both 36 F and 38 E. Both fit comfortably. I will try a compromise size 36 E. 5"1" 140 Phyllis from San Jose, CA, United States

All hail Anita sport bras! Whether medium or high impact, they are supportive, and so comfortable you can sleep in them. I am a true Anita devotee. Norma from Galveston

I wish I chose the right size because the item was awesome. Unfortunately too small and tight for me. But the product itself was top notch. Jcd from Abu Dhabi

MOST COMFORTABLE BRA EVER! It also has great support. I was looking for a sleep bra . . . Well, it never made it that far. I kept grabbing it during the day. I was afraid that the terrycloth would be too warm in the summer, but it wasn't. It was comfortable. That lining actually made it more comfortable. Kandace from Whitewater, WI

I have worn this bra for years. The fit is amazing. I am "lop-sided" due to cancer surgery, but can feel comfortable in this bra. It works for the gym and everything else. It is really worth the money and lasts and lasts. Joan from PA

Absolutely love this bra. Fits great, feels good. I did go a band size bigger and cup size smaller on this order to give me a little more room especially when exercising. It’s the only bra I wear. Found it several years ago in a lingerie shop in Florida and so glad I can now order them online! They last forever. I wash them in a lingerie bag and always line dry. Karen from Minnesota

This bra is the most comfortable I have ever owned. I wear daily and have the support I want without feeling constricted or experiencing those terrible shoulder "tracks." shay from nashville, tn

This bra is incredible! No bounce, no sweat, it didn't do that awful roll up thing that so many bras do on me, and the Terry cloth lining is Super soft! Going to order more soon. The only : / thing for me, personally, is that my "headlights" are almost always on. Even lined up with the seams, this was noticeable, particularly to someone like me that usually wears padded bras. It's still an amazing piece Amanda from TN

This bra was too small by about 2 cup sizes.

HerRoom Response: Keep in mind that all brands size differently after a D cup. Check out our brand conversion chart on the Universal Cup Sizing. Holly from Minneapolis

The fit is very small. Both the back and the cups run small. I am very disappointed it is not true to size.

HerRoom Response: We are sorry to hear that this bra did not work for you. We suggest checking out our Bra Fit Center to find your perfect size in this bra. Alyss from Marlboro, NJ

I love this bra and will order another. I am only 5 feet tall and have a large chest. It has been hard to find a sports bra that does not have wire and keeps me from bouncing when I ride horses. This does the trick. Being short, underwires dig into my sides and makes it uncomfortable. Keep carrying this bra!!!!! Paula from Williamsburg Va

I love Anita sports bras. Anita offers a great fit for active full-busted women. This version is lined with French terrycloth. When I tried it on, the terrycloth bunched up in a somewhat unflattering way. This was fixed by rearranging myself. I have yet to wear this sports bra for a workout, so I can't comment how often wearers will have to rearrange themselves for a smooth appearance. Keep in mind that with summer approaching, the terrycloth lining will help absorb sweat. So I still think this sports bra is worth trying. D. from New York, NY, USA

The terry lining is very comfortable and this bra offers excellent support. NOTHING IS MOVING IN THIS BRA. I gave it four stars because the band is a little too snug until it has been worn a few times and it can be a little tricky at first to fit the girls exactly right into the cups.

I had to return the original (34F) because the band and cup size was too small. Following the website instructions I ordered the next band size up and cup size down. It fits much better. It is not supportive enough during HIIT class though even though it says it is max.

Anita Response: Because this is a high impact sports bra it needs to fit snug in order to perform and support. Even though the 34 may have felt tight this may be your correct band size and you may need a G cup. Sherri from Usa

I really like this bra, it's construction, attention to detail, and was sooo excited to finally find a post-op bra that would comfortably fit. Unfortunately, even though I used the Bra Fitting Center, the band was too tight and the cups somewhat small. I do intend to reorder this bra - that's how much I felt it is truly a winner - but will go up one band size and one cup size.

Anita Response: This is actually a sport bra and not intended to be a post-op bra. Because this is a sport bra it is supposed to fit more snug than a regular bra for high impact activities. If you go up one cup size we suggest keeping your same cup. If you go up a band and up a cup your cups might be too big. Victoria from Durham/NC/USA

This bra was incredibly disappointing. The cup size was far too small (I was popping out on the sides and top), and I ordered based on the size chart/fitting guide. Given that I was popping out of it, I can't say if it would actually have been high-impact worthy or not, but my guess is no. The terry on the inside is a lovely touch though and made it very soft.

Anita Response: We suggest going up a cup size if you found this to be small. Nicole from Quebec

This is my 5th Anita 5527 bra. Having developed lymphadema after radiation for Breast Cancer, I was fitted with one of these bras. What a relief - after so many years of underwired torture chambers, my girls are now held in comfortly and firmly. (The bra also makes me feel very sporty, a great help in getting me up and out doing stuff.) Cannot recommend highly enough Jane from Israel
