Serious support

For years, I would wear 2 sports bras at a time to run. Then I found the zip-front model from CW-X, which was great... so they discontinued it. :-) This bra is part of my search for replacements, and I have to say it's a solid contender. Definitely enough support that I can wear just one bra.

Like most heavy-duty sports bras, it's pretty thick. Expect to sweat a bit. The adjustable band and straps are a nice touch, although I do find that the inside flap of the band rubs a bit-- I'm hoping that will soften up with a few washings. I'm calling it true to size, because it's very close. I'm normally a 38C or 36D, and I bought the 36D in this. I find I need to cinch the band all the way down to provide the level of compression I prefer, but not everybody likes their sports bra as tight as I do.

I've seen people saying this is hard to get into. I really don't find it so... or at least not any more so than any racerback sports bra. However, if you don't normally hook your bra behind your back (that is, if you're accustomed to hooking it in front and then turning it around), you're probably going to have some trouble while you learn how to manage 3 rows of hooks behind your back!
