Reviewed by Displaced San Diegan from Indiana on Monday, January 13, 2014This is a nice quality product. I prefer front zip/front closing sports bras for their ease in putting on and taking off. I wear a 34C-34D bra and need good side coverage as well as good compression in a sports bra meant for high impact activities like running. This bra does not provide the side coverage I need/prefer and does not offer the complete restriction from bouncing I get from the CW-X sports bras. I thought I would give this bra a try when I saw the great sale price. I won't be running in it, but it will be fine for low impact activity.
Reviewed by TK from Texas on Wednesday, July 17, 2013I am large-chested (36D) and very, very athletic. Needless to say, finding bras that hold everything still while I train and compete has been a challenge for years, and a source of embarrassment and frustration, too.
This bra was a lovely surprise. It is adjustable in ways I've never had a sports bra be before: you change the strap lengths via (very secure) velcro, and the band size is adjusted via use of multiple hook-and-eye options near the ribs. Even better, it zips up in front, making getting it on and taking it off a breeze.
I've done hardcore tempo runs and bike-run bricks in this bra, and it's perfect. Everything stays still, and there's no discomfort or chafing.
Note: it's not sexy. It's not meant to be worn as a bra-top. It is a *foundation garment*, and an extremely well-engineered one at that.
Note also: definitely go to the New Balance site and use their size charts. I bought a L (as the chart recommended) and the fit is spot-on.
Reviewed by Debby P. from Mississippi on Thursday, May 16, 2013I searched for quite some time, both around town and on the web and finally found the perfect sports bra! It has the support that I wanted without being too bulky/heavy. Dries quickly, and is very comfortable.
