Good design, horrible sizing,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Glamorise Women's Double-Layer Custom-Control Sport Bra (Apparel)
I ordered this product twice, first in 34DD and then when that was too big, 34D. The other bras I have are 34DD-F so I thought it was a safe bet to order a 34DD. Nope, WAY too big. Sent that back and ordered a 34D, thinking Glamorize sizing must run large. To my dismay the 34D was also too big even when the outer mesh was set to the smallest size. I know the problem is not me because the two other bras I got (Moving Comfort, 34D and 34DD) fit perfectly. I am just sending this one back because I don't have the time to keep doing this until I get down to whatever size in Glamorize corresponds to an actual 34DD.
If it had fit, I have to say it's a nice idea. The inner part is a white unpadded soft cup bra, and then there is a gray outer mesh "sling" part that fastens to the straps. It is adjustable to give varying degrees of support/compression. I also like the high neckline. It wasn't so high that I felt suffocated but was definitely high enough that there was no cleavage showing, which I appreciate for when I'm bending over to do stretches before running.
Overall, the design shows promise and if I had seen these in a store and been able to find one that fit I would have been happy with it, but as it is I had to send it back and would not buy it again or recommend to a friend.

Update on my review... Within days of posting this review I got the above comment from the president of the company, asking if their designer could contact me by phone and get some feedback from me. A few days later, Linda, their designer called me and we talked for a bit. She walked me through measuring myself and said that according to their size charts (maybe this one here: http://www.glamorise.com/sizecalc.php?Pro
So, although I stand by what I first said that the sizing on this bra is a bit wonky, it seems like if you go to their website and compare your measurements to their size charts, you should be able to get a bra that fits you well even if their sizing is a bit off from other brands' sizings. I am happy I gave them another chance, though, because I LOVE doing business with a company that stands behind its product like this and went above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. In retrospect, as long as you get the correct sizing, I would recommend this bra to a friend.

Hi, just wanted to say that,for me, also a 34DD, the fit was perfect. I did go to a 36DD as I have found that sports bras run a tad tighter circumference/band size-wise. I own 3 of this style and they are the most comfortable bras I have. I even wear them under scoop neck tees when I am not in workout mode because of the comfort and the peek of mesh at the neckline looks like a nice layering cami. Thanks so much for providing this style.
