I first bought the Maia when I started training for a half marathon, and am now wearing it for marathon training. It provides comfort, support, and no chaffing whatsoever, which is rare in an under wire. I am a C cup and also wear it to the gym, for step, and Zumba with zero bounce. If you are between cup sizes I would recommend going with the smaller cup for more support and less movement though.
The Maia is so comfortable that it is the only bra I wear now, even for every day. The straps stay put, there are no seams to show through a t-shirt, and the band and straps are smoothing and minimize back/side bulges. I like to wear polo shirts and even if the top of the bra peeks out it looks like a camisole and I don't have to worry about showing more than I intend when I bend over.
The only problem I have had is that the fabric on the inner bra, between the under wire, tends to fall apart a bit. It still holds and does it's job, it just looks bad. Also, since they can't be bleached the white one turns a sweaty grey color after a while. My beige one looks great even after a year of wear, but black is my favorite!
I run/weight train in this bra. It is very comfortable and supportive and best of all the shoulder straps are comfortable- that was the first thing I noticed- was such a difference the second I put it on. Price point is competitive with others of it's type. Doesn't show cleavage so I feel like I could go jogging in just this. There is minimal to no bounce-age.
Cons- I started with a 38DD but have lost weight so I'm down to a 36DD- cons are obviously that it doesn't automatically shrink to my current body size and I have to keep buying new ones! haha. Great problem to have- and worth it!

I love this bra. With the two separate cups built inside, I find it is SO much more comfortable than the standard sports bras that just smoosh. I had my workout stuff on for most of a day recently as my gym time got delayed for hours, and I was totally comfortable in it even doing regular activities. I am ordering more!
I wear a 42D, and found that the band to be a little more snug around than my other bras, but it's still comfortable.
I love the Maia!
I am active & play tennis among other activities. I am also large busted & it is difficult to find a bra that fits, gives enough support & is comfortable. The Maia is the first (& only) bra that accomplishes everything that I need. I would buy a dozen of them if price weren't a consideration.

Love the Maia
I've been shopping for a bra like this for a while - not too much cleavage, supports without smashing, minimizes and looks great under clothes. I got it for dance classes, but I'm wearing it now for everyay activities. I had to get one cup size smaller than I normally wear.

BEST BRA EVER!!
This is the most wonderful sports bra I've ever owned! Coming from someone who has had to wear 2 sports bras all her life (and had dealt with the resulting "uniboob") I will never have another sports bra. I am a D cup and just thought bounce was something everyone dealt with when they ran...boy was I wrong! Get one, you will not be disappointed..!
Best bra I have found in 10 years
As a 36 DD I have tried so many bras the past ten years since I took up running, and never have I found one this close to perfect. I did buy it as a D not DD per the reviews I read, and would suggest it to others. Extremely comfortable, did not move, rub, slide, and did not give the uniboob appearance. Would definitely recommend.

Best sports bra for large bust
I have worn this bra for a couple years after searchin gfor a good support underwire bra for larger bust sizes. Improvements in the neckline, cups and adjustable straps are great. I hesitated spending the money but they are worth it!
I love this bra! The adjustable straps are an excellent improvement from the first model Maia bra. That was my only complaint on Maia I so this perfects this fabulous bra! If you are large chested (big busted, whatever you want to call it), this is THE bra!
Best Dang Sports Bra, PERIOD!
I've purchased this bra from various sites looking for sale and clearance prices. I'm so in love with this bra it's unbelievable. To date, I have four; two black, one white and one in slate blue. I want another one in blue, that brownish grayish color one and I think I've seen in either royal blue or pink. I like the price on this site so when I get paid next week, I'll be ordering another one.
The support is simply phenomenal. I'm a 38C. I've been trying on sports bras for YEARS and have only purchased a couple and really should have left them in the store. When I tried this one on and gave it the bounce test in the fitting room, I knew it was a keeper. The fit is super on spot and right up there on my list of must haves in a sports bra...particularly that it has under wire that lifts, supports and separates (with no uniboob effect) and is ultra comfortable. I was beginning to think that all that was too much to ask for in a single sports bra. But I knew SOMEONE had to be making a bra like this, and I've finally found it. Yay for the Maia! Please keep making this bra and offer it in a lot of colors. Since it has a higher neckline, the colors might as well be fashionable since the bra will show under most workout tops.
I seldom leave reviews, but had to because this is really the best sports bra ever. I'm a 36DD, and I run. It's so hard to find something this comfortable and supportive. By far the best sports bra I've come across to date!
Size 40DD and Love them,
Great support, comfortable. With other bras I feel like my little friend are in prison and can barely breath. This brand is perfect, will be ordering 2 more today. I am a size 40DD and a jogger, they are perfect for me.
I did not like the underwire in the Maia bra. I find that underwire bras start to wear when I would still be getting mileage out of a wirefree bra. Otherwise, it seems like a good bra.
Best supportive bra ever!
I was leary about buying a bra on line, however this is the best purchase I have ever made on liine. I am a 38 DD and was looking for a very supportive bra and won the lottery wit this one!!!
This is the second bra I had to buy as the first one was sized small. This one feeld like the original size I bought but I didn't care as long as it was comfortable. I will continue to buy Moving Comfort.

Doesn't get much better.
I use this product during my runs, zumba, and light lifting at the gym. It works great to keep everything where it needs to be. It is also very comfortable and seems well constructed.

This Bra Rocks!!
I wear this bra while excersing and its the only one that works for my larger chest size. I have tried MANY bras from other companies, but this bra by far is the best.

Once you try this sports bra...
I wear this bra for running and am so happy with it. I've tried others, but this is by far and away the most comfortable...and most supportive. You'll pay a little more for it, but it definitely worth it.
Ormond Beach, FL
This is the best sports bra I have ever worn...I never knew there was a need for less than 2 bras until now. I was skeptical about the $$$ but it was worth every penny!
I've been wearing this bra for power walks. I'm a 36ddd but the 36dd fits so this bra runs slightly large. As a large breasted woman, I would not run in this bra but for walking and lower impact activities, this bra is fantastic.
Los Angeles, CA
This bra is perfect for high impact exercise. It doesn't flatten out your chest and is very comfortable all around. It is the best bra I have bought by far.

Pretty, decent fit, not compressive
Very well made bra, comfortable fit. Creates semi-uniboob look. The two-layered bra is a good idea - the underbra gives support, the overbra add a bit of comression and camoflages any over flow. As a bonus, it resembles a tank so if it peeps out from a shirt you don't look like your bra is showing.
However for a well endowed person, there is not enough compression - too much upward movement. This would be good for some medium intensity work, like the gym, biking, maybe some jogging if you're not too well endowed, but not good for high motion activity like running, horseback riding, etc. Also the band under the cups rolls under.
On the plus size - it does fit an E, which is near impossible to find in a good sport bra. Talked to the manufactuerer rep and will be returning this for a Juno, which is suppose to be more compressive (but doesn't offer E )
Would recommend to those who are Ds, maybe some DD depending on their structure, but not to Es
can't find a good fit
I would buy this product again and again
Long distance busty runner. I've been looking for a good support bra for years. I finally found one. This bra is the best!!!
I love this bra, the only drawback that I can mention is that the band size seem to run small. Once again this is a great bra for women with a larger bust.
Twin Falls, Id
Great bra for me!
Wished I had bought a 36d instead of 34d because the band feels tight. Otherwise, this is the BEST bra I have ever bought! LOVE IT!
This running bra is amazing. No uni-"chest"Looks like a tank under a v-neck. Best of all for us C and D cup gals.....NO BOUNCE! Best running bra ever.
East Bay, CA
Great for active women
I read reviews before buying this bra and have been extremely happy -- best bra I've found for jogging. Especially good for larger breasted women...great support.
Ormond Beach, FL
Like this bra. I don't usually have an underwire for exercise and was skeptical about trying one. This bra is good, and I don't notice the underwire.
My favorite sports bra w/one small issue
This sports bra is excellent, with one small exception. In the last 9 months, I have repurchased this bra 3 times as I have reduced my bra size. I start on the outermost hook and eye setting, work my way in to the tightest setting and then repurchase a smaller bra and start over. When I start on the outermost hook and eye setting, the piece of fabric under the eye is too short and the hook causes a laceration on my back. Is there any way to make this fabric section longer? I just repurchased the bra again and the problem, once again has recurred. Other than this, this product is, hands down, the BEST bra I've owned.
I liked the old model better...
My all-natural DD cups require a lot of support and I've been wearing this bra for over a decade. I used to wear two bras for exercising until I discovered this gem. Unfortunately a few years ago the company redesigned the Maia, giving it adjustable straps. I supposed this makes it more accessible to different sized women, but the adjustable straps chaffe like crazy where the straps attach to the body of the bra. This has been true for every color of the new version I own, so it's not an anomaly. Anti-chaffe helps, but I prefer the old model better :(

awesome bra--fits well and really easy to get on and off, and adjust! I don't move at all in it and it's still really comfortable.

This is an amazing bra. Hands down the best. It is comfortable, breathable, and most importantly supports larger cup sizes perfectly with no bounce. I never thought I could run with the DD's I developed after the birth of my second child. Not only does this bra have superior motion control, but it creates a natural shape under clothes (not the dreaded uni-boob!!)

This bra before the adjustable straps is my favorite. It definitely was a 5 star bra for me. The lower front neckline on the adjustable is a good idea, mainly because I wear the old style every day, as it is sooo comfortable and often have to let the front part show. Anyone have any closeouts on the "old" Maia in a 40DD, I will buy them!! More color choices in this size would be super...and I will have to live with the adjustable straps.

I like this bra, but not as much as the original Maia bra. This bra is smaller and the underwire wears out faster and pokes through the fabric. I will still buy it, but am trying a larger size. It still beats any other bra I have tried for larger-breasted women.

bought 4, still wearing all of them after 4 years but I bought them because the straps didn't adjust so probably won't now as adjustable straps tend to do that while you're riding.

Loved it at first, but as it wears out the underwire will chafe your boobs until they bleed. Not so great for long runs; anything longer than 8 miles seemed to result in blood and pain. I've tried Enell, Moving Comfort, and Nike Dri-Fit bras, and all of them chafe, so maybe this is the best thing out there, because the support is fantastic. But for long runs? Ouch.

I've just started running again after having my first baby. I was small and never had "bounce" issues until my breasts grew with pregnancy, and it's even worse now, since I'm breastfeeding. This bra has made running both possible and COMFORTABLE again! Thank you Moving Comfort!

All I can say is I am in LOVE. Thank you MOVING COMFORT for understanding the plight of the large breasted woman who desperately wants to be a runner, but never thought she could. I also, went down a cup size to have no movement at all. AWESOME.

The Maia is the best running bra in the universe for the full figured runner!! I went down one cup size for best support and minimum bounce.

I've had to purchase one cup size down for a secure fit. I like the comfort and support of the Maia bra, but I usually wear a heart rate monitor strap and the seam along the bottom of the bra tends to curl under the strap and I often have to readjust during a run. From my experience, it's better for shorter distances as I've had slight chafing from the underwire on high mileage runs. Despite the minor issues, it's one of the best full-figure running bras I've tried.

I have always had a difficult time finding a comfortable AND supportive bra in a D cup, however this bra is a godsend. I can jump, hop and skip with minimal bouncing, and it's a great value for a bra in this cup size, with this much support.
A new added feature; the straps are adjustable! LOVE IT!!
