This bra was surprising! Just as a reference, I wear a 30/32 DD/E depending on the bra. (Naturally, not implant. That would be a different fit.) I ended up purchasing a Small. I have been looking for a bra that contains and compresses enough to prevent the girls from getting in the way. I regularly lift, run, and do yoga. One of my pet peeves in a bra is that when I bend over, like in yoga, and my breasts look like they are screaming to pop out. This is the first bra that I have purchased that has ever been high cut enough to prevent this. I really enjoy the shape of the bra. The band is wide and it doesn't irritate my skin or get sucked under my breasts like some bras. It stays in place very nicely.
I should also say that I am at the gym to workout, not show off fashion. Haha. Things like Uniboob and and nipples showing through aren't important factors for a bra to me. This bra isn't padded or shaped to prevent either. I took a risk and bought these at the new year when they were on crazy sale. They were so cheap that they were add-on only so I had to buy 6 of them. So glad that I did!!
As a woman that has nursed two kids, I want to let the nursing women know that this bra probably isn't the best for nursing. It's too high cut to nurse, unless you pull out from the bottom, but even then the band may be too tight to be comfortable.
I'm a 34-36 b cup and ordered the medium. When I first pulled it out the back, I thought to myself, this is too big. I was wrong!! It fit perfectly fine. Most comfortable sports bra I've ever worn. Best back support, didn't feel too tight around my body, kept the girls in check, I was still able to breathe right with it on. The price is awesome, the colors are great, and they don't smell as bad even after a couple of uses.
I'm a 36C and the medium is a little too small, it's difficult to take off after working out. The compression and support is amazing though, and I expect the fit to be even better when I lose another 10 pounds.
Also ordered the large size which still offers great compression and support. The fit is better and still perfect for high impact sports like running, kick boxing, etc.
So much support - no movement! I am SO happy! I have been so disappointed with any i find at local big box or even sporting stores so i am EXTREMELY happy with this and probably need to order many more right away!
I have a small bust line, and the small is still pretty squeezy but does not restrict my breathing; I would recommend if you're looking for FTM chest compression that's not a formal (expensive) binder! It won't do the job as well as a proper GC2B, but it's about half the price and safer and more comfortable to get in and out of. These provide good overall coverage and compression, plus they're super comfortable! I've bought three of this kind from this brand over the last three years, because I wanted more sets. The two-year-old pair has barely stretched out over time.
I love these bras so much, I don't think I'll ever try another brand! I wear a 34DD, so it's important to me to find something that'll keep me comfortable while I exercise. This bra is not too tight, but it has great coverage. Also, I'm thrilled that the band doesn't roll up, which is a problem I've had with much more expensive sports bras. I wear this bra to work out multiple times a week, and it still looks like new, but I bought a second one anyway :) Can't say enough good things.
I wear a 30DD/32D bra and typically wear an XS sports bra. I do often have difficulty finding the bra to fit high enough on the chest and not give a bunch of cleavage. I knew I was taking a risk with the XS, but I like my sports bras TIGHT and binding. IT FITS GREAT! I feel like I have full coverage! The bra is thin and I think if it were lined, it would provide more support. I have yet to workout in it, but I feel hopeful based on fit that it will provide the support and compression I need.
UPDATE-3 months later! I find myself repeatedly choosing the these sports bras over my other ones when I work out. I will be purchasing more. These ARE high impact sports bras that provide full coverage without cleavage or spilling over the top of the bra. My work outs are high impact, high intensity interval training full of squat jumps, burpess, jumping jacks, weightlifting, etc. This bra holds me in and provides full support.
I am very satisfied with Starter Medium Impact Racerback Sports Bra. I am petite, with a small chest, and wear this bra to run both on a treadmill and outside. The Starter Bra does the job of keeping everything secure, and it doesn't move, cut, or bind. It's also relatively easy to take off (some sports bras are miserable to get off once you are a bit sweaty). For the cost, this is a great choice and I plan to buy in more colors.
I ordered based on the sizing chart and was really snug. I didn't mind that but went for a power walk and as my arm moved, it started rubbing on my side just below the arm pit. I think the seam on the band inside the bra was causing this and it started really bothering me within a half an hour. I couldn't wait to get it off...definitely returning.
