To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This item was far to small round the back and to big at the top of the boobs but fitted nicely under them it's just i like mine completely covered but it's hard to get a bra that covers, fits in all areas and that's comfy. I struggle with comfort as I have autism so there's some types of clothes I won't wear
I ordered a 40DD. The tag says 40DD. However, when you measure the band, the band is actually 34 inches long. There is some give in the band --an inch, maybe 2-- but certainly not 6. And the cups...are also not DD; I'd be surprised if they were even a B. I could maybe wear this on one breast, certainly not both. It will be returned. It looks like it would be a very supportive bra for high impact activities if it were sized correctly.
You know, for years I've been reading Amazon reviews, and every once in a while someone writes something like: "I threw it away, it was so bad", and I've thought: "COME ON, these can't be real reviews!". Well. Guess what.
This bra was terrible. I;ve been in need of some new sports bras, and when this arrived, LIKE AN IDIOT, I cut off the tags without trying it on first.
The band around the ribcage is made of a very rough-feeling material. The shoulder straps are similarly uncomfortable. The front hook thing that lets you adjust the straps is made of a flimsy plastic that doesn't look as though it will hold up. The shoulder straps are held in place with velcro.
When I pulled up the straps enough to provide stable support... the resulting armpit hole was too small, so the (already too-stiff, uncomfortable) fabric was now digging in to my armpits.
I have absolutely no idea how this has any 5-star reviews. Sandpaper would have been more comfortable.
In case you're curious, at roughly the same price-point, I've had good luck with the brand called Yvette. I have zero connection to that company, but so far I've purchased 2 bras from them in the $26 - $30 range and their high-impact bras are comfortable AND they work.
I listened to other reviewers that it runs small, ordered 38D (normally 36D) and it still fits snug but ok. Wore it once to a HIIT class and the velcro straps kept coming undone, what a nightmare. Tried it again just on the elliptical and, again, straps were all over the place. Can't return it now so just threw away $25.
I am very active and run out doors 3 - 4 miles a day. I'm 125lbs with large double Ds to small Fs. I've been searching for a sports bra that reduces bounce in my chest, and after reading many of the reviews I thought to try this sports bra. I found the bra not comfortable at all. My breast spilled over the sides and I could feel the material digging into my shoulders. I've worn it once and that was it.
I ordered my usual size 34 double-D. The bra arrived the next day after ordering! When I took it out of the packaging, I could see that it was going to be too small, WAY too small. I laid the bra out flat and measured the band across the bottom. It was only 26 and 1/2 in.! The band has no stretch or give whatsoever, and the straps were sturdy and fully adjustable, so I'm sure with the proper suze it would definitely prevent bouncing. I'm returning it for a refund, because I have no idea what size to order if exchanged.
A professional fitter sized me at 38D so that’s what I bought. But with this bra, there’s no point to cup size. It’s just a band with a boob hammock. Doesn’t lift or separate and certainly doesn’t support. Band was 2 sizes small. I guess the good reviews come from women with 34 or smaller bands? Also, the straps are short so I can’t even take advantage of the adjustable strap.
