GET ONE!!! Find a good size!!! Get another one!! Haha... I knew from the reviews these were pretty good but I've been aiming at the wrong cup size... And even now I could probably use the 34E... But I'm satisfied!! Nice firm hold on my rib cage, no movement and I'm still on the first hook.. which is great because I dislike starting out in the middle hook, feels like it may already be too big and if it proves stretchy would be https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />. Overall I'm just happy!! Wore yesterday with some Ewa michalak cookies... That was blissful!!! Gave me a little space between the bottom of the cup (on my ribcage) and lifted my boobs off of the wire area. Has anybody else tried this bra!!!?
This is my second bra in this style, my first was a 32FF - Panache Sport » Sports Bra (5021) in the latte color. The larger cup fits better in some ways, but I am dropping a little more weight, and suspect/hope that the smaller size will last longer and "contain" me a little more. If the cups were a little shorter or cut a little less full in the top, the 32FF would probably feel more secure when I run. I think I currently get a bit less bounce in the 32F, even though it has a slightly lower neckline, exposing more breast tissue.
The band ...is quite firm, I did not size up from my usual size, but if you are between band sizes you might prefer to take the larger. After 2 years of frequent wear, my previous bra can still be comfortably worn on the first hook and be supportive for everyday activity, though I would want a tighter hook for actual workouts. Based on that, I would not advise anyone to take an uncomfortably tight band - it may well take YEARS for it to stretch.
The cups are padded enough and the seams are flat enough that this can be worn as a t-shirt bra, though the beautiful lunar print would likely show through all but the darkest of shirts. The padded wires are absurdly comfortable, enough so that even though the gore is too wide and high for my close set breasts, I still find this bra comfortable. The gore definitely does not tack except at the base, and that may be more of a soft tack influenced by the tight band. The larger size also did not seem to tack, though it is hard to really tell in both bras due to the construction. The fabric comes up significantly higher than the wires, so it is difficult to determine tack visually.
I get an amazing shape for a sports bra. I always work out in a shirt, but with or without one, my breasts look awesome. Lifted and separated, good apex projection. Not enough immediate depth. I suspect I am getting a bit of a push up effect from the bra being a little small, but I do not look smashed or like I am spilling out anywhere.
Caveats: I am full on bottom, somewhat soft-tissued, projected, slightly pendulous, close-set, inner fullness, need a lot of immediate projection. I have narrower roots. I am long-waisted and tall for a woman (5'8"). I have a smaller frame, am a bit deflated on top and have some looser skin. It is not super obvious, but likely affects fit slightly.

• The band felt super tight at first. Hard to put on. Loosened up a little after a couple more try-ons. (If I kept it, I'd have used an extender.) • The cups are super tall. On my short torso they lay flat when standing, but gape when moving around. Doesn't control the bounce. Didn't cut in around my armpits as bad as I thought it would, but I also didn't test it in a workout. • The wires are very flexible, and a very narrow gauge. Can hardly feel them inside the channel. The channels have some padding around the wires, but minimal. • The straps are very comfortable. Don't cut into my shoulders at all.
• For reference, when I measured the height of the gore, the wires went up 3.5" from the base of the band. But the top of the cup goes to 6" tall.
I bought this online, I wanted to invest in a good sports bra.
First I ordered a -32G It was huge, I could not fill the upper part and also y had extra fabric on the side of the armpit, so I returned it. I changed it 2 sizes smaller, I received a -32F (read some reviews to order one size cup less) I fit it full, I think it's even a little bit small.
Overall the wires and band fit perfectly (maybe a little bit tight bit i think it's because it's sports bra) also the wire touches the middle of my sternum (barely, but it touches it) but on the sides of my armpit i think I need 1-2 cms more and also on the upper part my boobs spills a bit, but not that much that might be a issue.
I'm wondering if I should returned it and ask for a 32FF which is actually my size.
This sports bra is so comfy it's like pajamas for your boobs! Yet it still magically controls the bounce, even tho there's a little extra room on top for me (it's quite tall in the cup). The band is true to size and the cups give a pretty rounded, but minimized shape. I ADORE how the straps are placed--very close inward so they don't rub on my shoulders! Everything on this bra is soft and padded and I think I'll be wearing it as a normal bra sometimes because it's so comfy (and cute with the leopard!)
-band is perfect- a little too tight now but will be just right after a few wears -straps are closer than I'm used to, sit right on my traps, not sure if that'll be a problem. -cups are a little too big, have empty space at the top, would be able to deal with it if i wasn't going to use it for running. -excellent shape & support -will try 32E
Tried on in Nordstrom. I asked for a 30G but they didn't have any 30 bands so the fitter got me a 32F (when she should have brought 32FF). The cups were too small - had side boob spilling out. The band rode up on the loosest hooks. Didn't ride up on the tightest ones but wasn't very supportive. Hooking the racerback clip helped a little with bounce but I still wasn't very happy with this size/bra. I'd love to try more sizes on as I'm pretty much a 30G/32FF in Cleo.
This sports bra is amazing. I bought it for the purpose of running, and it's perfect for that. There's never any annoying, painful, or distracting movement in front of me, so I can focus on the task at hand. It's also got great color options, which don't suffer from its wide array of large-cup options. I have it an eyecatching aqua and bright green.
My usual bra size is 30GG, but in this bra I went up in the back and down several sizes in the cup to get enough constriction for exercise. (I tested this factor by jumping up and down several times in the fitting room.) In ...light of that, I firmly believe that this is a bra that should be tried on before purchase.
Even though this size is so far from my go-to 30GG, this several-month old 32F is still effectively tight in the band. I still wear it on the loosest, maybe middle, set of hooks. The size I chose isn't a perfect technical fit, as the gore doesn't tack. However, you'd never know that such a structural failing -- the one that usually restricts bounce the most -- is lacking based on this bra's performance. I also think that this is the best possible size I could've gotten in this bra: I bought it in-store and tried on several sizes in its neighborhood.
It's also obscenely comfortable, which is definitely a plus. It probably owes this to its wide, padded straps and padded underwire. Read more 139 more words
