I have a hard time spending a lot of money on sports bras and I was very happy with the price of this bra.

I got a good fit, and it has worked out perfectly for my running workouts.
I needed a sports bra without wire for golf and this bra fits the bill.it is a bit high under my arms.

    Size: 30F UKColor: Black Verified Purchase
    I'm 30G US/30F UK, so I ordered accordingly. The band is at best a 28. The straps are far too short. The cups are a bit of a joke - completely unlined and at least two cup sizes too small. I checked the label just in case they had delivered the wrong size - nope. 30G/30F. I will be processing the return and buying a different brand.

    Size: 30DD UKColor: White Verified Purchase
    My usual disclaimer: you should find your "real" or UK bra size before ordering! If you've never measured yourself before, grab a measuring tape and enter your measurements into the bra calculator at [...] Finding your true size can be life-changing - I went from wearing a 34 band to a 30, and have never been more comfortable! For reference, my tight underbust is 29.5", comfortable underbust 30-30.5", standing overbust 35.5". My tissue is soft, full on the bottom, projected, and somewhat pendulous, with very short roots. I wear 30DD, occasionally 30E, and have found a good fit in some tight-band 32D bras (i.e. Curvy Kate).

    The Classic Support sports bra is an encapsulation-style bra, which I've never had much luck with; this was no exception, unfortunately. The gore wasn't even close to tacking -- other reviews here mention that this runs small in the cup space, but my impression was that the cups are cut wide and shallow for evenly distributed or full-on-top tissue. Either way, I still experienced quite a bit of jiggling, which made me decide to return it. I found the lining to be silky and comfortable, but if you worry about nippliness in the cold, you may want to look at a sports bra with padding or a thicker lining. Side note: I've never before encountered a sports bra that gave me the pointy 1950s torpedo-boob profile.

    Overall: this would be a decent bra for women with shallow, even to full-on-top tissue distribution. The cups run wide and shallow. Be aware that the straps don't adjust fully, which could be a problem if your roots are very low or very high. I judged the 30 band to fit true to size, but based on other reviews, I'd wager that some higher band sizes (34+) may run a bit tight.

    Size: 36DColor: Black Verified Purchase
    The cup size is ok, but the band size runs really small. The cups give a little bit of a pointy 1950's look, which I don't like. For me (36D) it worked just as well as an underwire bra, so that was a plus. However, any gain in comfort was lost by the fact that the band is so tight. I do like that it's more low cut than most sportsbra's, so you can wear it with a V-neck.

    Size: 34DColor: White Verified Purchase
    I have never had a bra (sports bra or otherwise) this supportive. I have a hard time spending a lot of money on sports bras and I was very happy with the price of this bra. I can jump rope with my daughter now and don't have the pain! Jumping jacks, jogging, etc are all accomplished now without having to "hold" myself with one arm. It's very comfortable as well. It has a nice cushion where it hooks too, so that part isn't irritating (and it's so nice to have a sports bra that doesn't have to be pulled over my head).
    I would also like to add that I am a nursing mom right now, so even with my change in size (minimal throughout the day), I can still wear this bra comfortably.
    I highly recommend this if you need an affordable, supportive bra to workout in.

    Size: 36DColor: White Verified Purchase
    super tight around the band to the point that I get a rib cage ache, cup size I chose is probably too small. So my unhappiness is partially my fault. The return policy on the product said if it was taking out of the packaging it couldn't be returned. Well it's hard to try on a bra while it is still in the plastic bag so I'm stuck with an ill fitting bar, fortunately I got it on a super sale so it's not that big of a deal.

    Size: 30DD UKColor: Black Verified Purchase
    I ordered a size 30DD in this bra. When it came today, I was barely able to put it on. My breasts were squished out the sides and the top, and it was clear that the cups were way too small. I flipped it upside down and wrapped it around my ribcage (but not my breasts), and the band seemed to fit OK, so I think it's just that the cups are too small. I'm going to return this, but I don't know whether to go up one (30E) or two cup sizes (30F) because it's that small.

    Otherwise, the band seemed to have pretty good elastic, and the padding on the shoulders is something I like in a sports bra. It probably isn't good for high impact exercise, but I think it'd be OK for medium or light impact exercise.

    UPDATE: I decided to go up one cup size (30E). The cups are still quite small and the band is very snug. I have to wear it with the straps as loose as possible and on the last hook, yet my breasts still squish out the sides some. However, I'm worried 30F would be too large, so I'm not going to bother doing another exchange. I know the elastic will get looser with wear, and then it should fit more comfortably.

    I suggest using a bra calculator before buying this bra. -- http://www.85b.org/bra_calc.php

    I got a good fit, and it has worked out perfectly for my running workouts. I could not be happier!

    Size: 34CColor: Black Verified Purchase
    This is a nice sports bra. Yes I read a few reviews and I must agree with the sizing. I wear 34C as long I can remember, and this is what I ordered. The chest band is very tight, and the cups are a little bigger. I'll still keep the bra, the chest band will get looser over time.
