I have just recently started running and really wanted a bra that held everything in place. Being a 32D I've had problems finding one where the band fits properly across my ribcage. Finally a sports bra with specific sizes! I love the way it holds the girls in securely with out squeezing me to deat...

The photo looks like another Moving Comfort bra that is more expensive - this is all stretchy stuff that stretches out and then you wash it and it's OK again. The chest is weirdly small and confining, but as I need compression sports bras, not a problem. some sideboob and funny little breasts in the center too close together! Again, still looks OK. Not ideal, but very inexpensive.

When I got my first on of these sports bras and tried it on, I very nearly returned it. I did try it, though, and now, it's one of my all-time favourites for running. Very good at wicking. Velcro straps stay in place. And, best of all, no chafing or blistering!

I normally love my Moving Comfort bras but this one is just plain weird. The material is really stiff (for a bra)- almost waterproof material but the worst part is the band. It's really stiff, wide elastic that has NO "give" to it so it puckers, rubs and chafes. I gave it a good shot, wore it a couple times but just can't make it work. Returning mine.
Yes, they are velcro. They are attached in the back come up over the shoulder through the loop then have about 2 inches or so of velcro that attaches to the underside of the strap. It should work for breast feeding.

This bra is similar to the Maia as it will come up high in the front as well. The adjustment of the straps and the cup support are different but they have a similar fit.

The Fiona has been my favorite sports bra for the past 2 years. I just tested the Helena bra last week. I was impressed. It feels like the next generation of the Fiona. It has advanced seamfree construction and consequently the fabrication seems more rigid than the Fiona. However, I like that. It truly limits bounce. The Helena is a strong sports bra!

This one is a tiny bit lower than the Maia, and tends to gap out - I think because the neckline is wider than the Maia. The material is much different from the Maia as well... less cottonlike and more of a smooth plastic feeling. Even so, I actually like the Helena more than the Maia, it's just all around more comfortable and less scratchy. The Fiona doesn't have molded cups (and makes the dreaded uniboob), so I wear it over the Helena for running. The band style bra over the separation style bra is the best combo for high impact activities, in my experience. Hope that helps!

This bra doesn't come up as high on the chest as the Maia (maybe a bit less than an inch lower), and it doesn't have underwire. But it runs smaller than the Maia so order a size up!

yes. It's very high. I don't like it because of that.

I have both bra's, and they are totally different. The Fiona does come up much higher. This one fit's a little tighter,lower across the front with MUCH less shaping (more Uniboob) and this bra does not hide when you get cold the way the Fiona does. Similar in amount of support, but looks much more like a traditional sports bra.
