I *love* this bra! I was prepared to drop 5x the cost on sports bras at Victoria's Secret, but I wasn't impressed with any of them. I have a small waist, and unfortunately VS sports bras ignore the fact that shoulders exist; trying to squeeze a 27" band over your shoulders is virtually impossible, especially after a workout. This bra, on the other hand, takes all of two seconds to take on and off because of the convenient front closure.
-front closure makes for fast on/off. no more struggling to squirm a tight band over your shoulders after a workout!
-makes your bust look fantastic! it's padded with a deep plunge, it's pretty much like a pushup bra.
-padded to ensure your nipples won't show through. most basic sports bras are just way too thin to be modest in that way.
-price! I'm not kidding, I would pay like 4x as much for this bra. I think Lululemon has the same thing for literally 8x the cost.
-non-adjustable; get the wrong size and you're stuck with it! if you have a large bust, the shoulder straps might be too tight for you (they are also non-adjustable).
-straps are wide and close-set: unless you wear a crewneck top, the bra straps will probably stick out through your shirt, because they sit right against your neck. I am totally fine with this, others may not be. just keep that in mind. they are, however, padded for comfort.
SIZING: I am a 32C. That means my sister sizes are 34B, and 30D (rule of thumb for bras: up a band size = down a cup size, and vice versa). I bought the 34B and it fit *perfectly*. If you are in between sizes, definitely go up a band size. honestly I think it's better to be too tight than too loose, but keep in mind that the band runs small.
I also bought the Danskin Now "core strength pushup bra" in 34B, and the band was too wide, even on the smallest setting. So keep in mind if you have another Danskin Now sports bra, that doesn't necessarily mean the sizing will be consistent.
OVERALL: I haven't had it long so I can't speak for quality/longevity, but I guarantee if you get one that FITS right, it'll become your new favorite sports bra! The quality is absolutely fantastic for the price. If Victoria's Secret bought all of these and stuck their label on it, they'd fly off the shelves at $40.
