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.
So I’m a 36 DD -I’m 5’2” 138 pounds. I purchased this because I needed a hook bra and not a pull over. When I tried it on fit nice and I really like the hook that converts the bra to racer back. But as soon as I started running the under wires in the front started cutting into my chest bone. Extremely uncomfortable. Are usually don’t like underwire bras and haven’t purchased one for a while but the reviews seem so great. If you’re midsized but larger bus I would definitely go with the Calia by Carrie underwood. That bra has been the beat sports bra I’ve ever owned
Doesn’t contain my well-endowed 32DDD chest at all. I tried multiple sizes, but nothing worked. Even with a little hop, hardly leaving the ground, or jumping jacks, I was bouncing so much at the top. It didn’t even seem to cover all of my breast tissue at the top, that’s how much bounce there was. There’s no way I could run or do a boot camp in this. I wanted to like it (thus why I tried multiple sizes), because others were fans of it for larger chests, but I basically felt like I’d be working out in an everyday bra, not a sports bra meant to contain me a bit more.
It’s a comfortable bra and fits well but it’s not a high impact sports bra. So many women recommend panache for sports bras but I don’t think they are talking about this one. It’s a great everyday bra and maybe a very light workout or yoga. I wear a 34H and could not workout in this bra.
After reading the reviews I was very hopeful about this bra. I am a 38DDD and have recently started running/walking and need a lot of support. The 1st bra I ordered in my size was too big in the cups so I returned it for a size down. The 2nd bra fit better but it provided no support. I tried walking/running in it and I was bouncing all over the place. I almost needed a 2nd bra for added protection. I did like the fit around the back and the straps but it just gave me no support. I was disappointed to have to return.
I tried readjusting the straps and different band settings. This just didn't fit me right. The product may be great for some but I returned it. Still looking for that perfect exercise bra for this short, busty, 61-year-old!
I ordered this bra as a high impact option for running, etc. I am generally a 36 DD and that is the size I ordered. The cups are strange, very formed/stiff and oddly shaped. They are also a bit too large. Also, the straps do not tighten very much, I wear on the shortest setting and this is not quite short enough. For high-end, high-impact sports bra, I do not recommend.
This bra wasn't true to size for me. I've been professionally fitted, and I'm the same size in other brands, like Wacoal. In this bra, my breasts spilled out the top and sides, which meant lots of bounce. I also found the front seams too prominent and not flattering with my large chest.
I bought this sports bra because it was featured in some fitness articles as a good high-impact sports bra but when I got it and tried it on, it fit wayyyyy too small, even though I ordered my usual size. The band size was fine, but the cup size was way off. On the tag it says it can fit cup sizes B-J... I know for sure that is impossible. So if you're going to buy this sports bra, order probably at least two cup sizes bigger than your usual.
