Love this bra!
I really love the Fiona bra. I have a couple of these bras now and they have been a life saver. I nursed my daughter for a year and suffered through terrible nursing bras that gave me no support. I had another child last year and was not looking forward to another year of terrible support. When I was ordering something else, I asked the road runner sports operator about nursing bras. She said they did not have any but that they had this bra with velcro and many women used it for nursing. THIS WAS GREAT ADVICE. I wear these bras constantly. I am ready for nursing but I am also ready for running down the road next to my daughter riding her bike or chasing my crawling son. I cannot stand to bounce and the Fiona bra takes care of that: no bouncing! I love this bra for regular working out and for nursing! Thank you road runner sports for suggesting this bra!

Very secure and so pretty!
Bottom line: I won't buy ANYTHING that isn't on sale. But, I bought three of these at full price, for three different colors. It is impossible, even in the Helena, to get hot colors at my size: 32dd. One of the problems is I canNOT "size down" like the other gals; this is the smallest band width of any sport bra. I found the Fiona to be snug, secure, and with compression BUT no "uni-b**b," and so, so beautiful. I get compliments from the other dancers EVERY time I wear one to my Latin Cardio, Salsa Aerobics, or Zumba class. I'm not concerned about "headlights," 'cause at Latin dance classes, it's all about flaunting, and it's almost all ladies, anyway. If you want "the look," while doing high impact cardio, team this bra with a pair of low-rise cargo pants and you're stylin'. Unfortunately, other than the seagrass, guava, and mist, the other colors by Moving Comfort (petal pink, cafe), sold out a long time ago in my size. The only downside is the band rolls up, and it's lined in white, so it's a little unsightly, but not uncomfortable. The Helena provides a lot more "girding," but at my size, they only make black and white.

Great support, light weight
I use this bra for support for training and running half marathons. I like firm support, which this bra gives, and also a smooth line under tops. This bra supports well but does not bind; the band and overall fabric/construction are more flexible than most , but still support well in high impact. I am a full 36B, but I use a 34D in most sports bras to ensure a tight band and adequately full cups. The 34D fit my specifications perfectly in this bra. The design is different from most bras in that it has a band that comes over the outside, above the bosom, to support against upward movement at the top of the stride as well as the chest band to support during impact. This design limits motion in more of the stride than most bras, which only support during impact. I have bought this bra for my daughters and recommended to friends as well. Because of the strap design, it can also be used as a nursing bra. It does flatten, a bit, but I do not mind that as a trade off for good support in a bra that is light enough to wick well and be comfortable.
I trained for and ran a marathon, using this bra for all of my long runs and the race itself.
Fantastic for tall girls - I am just about 6'0" and the straps extend to sufficient length with plenty of spare room to extend more.
The straps fasten with velcro, which I was wary of, but mine have made it through 1-2 washing machine cycles a week for 4 months without the velcro coming undone. Also, while I initially had concerns about the velcro causing chafing, I have never experienced any.
The only chafing I have had with this bra is a small strip under the band in the front center of the bra, and only on my longer runs (more than 10 miles). Nothing that a quick swipe of body glide doesn't prevent entirely, even over the course of a marathon.
My one negative - I had one of the metal hooks break off of one of the bras. Went to put it on, and there just wasn't a hook there. I've still been using the bra because the two remaining hooks still provide sufficient support, but I've been more wary to wear it on longer runs.
All in all, the best bra I've found. It's rare I can find one that is adjustable to my height and provides such good support.

Fits perfectly and offers great support!
I ran my first marathon in this sports bra without any issues. Even as a D cup, it provided me with great support and was comfortable to wear. The front straps adjust to create a perfect shoulder fit, preventing slipping during a workout. The band has 3 size options (like a regular bra) which also creates a perfect fit around the chest and provides support. The day of the marathon, it happened to be about 90 degrees outside, so I ended up wearing only this sports bra on top. The style of this sports bra allows for it to be worn on its own, which (luckily for me) is perfect for running in high temperatures! The material is also great for wicking away moisture (sweat!!) and allowing for breathability. As an added bonus, it is easy to launder and holds its form. I have already recommended it to others and would definitely purchase another in the future.
Finally, a sleek bra for larger sizes
I love this sports bra. I struggle with high-impact sports bras because I have a larger-than average bust size. I am always looking for a sports bra that does not restrict my breathing or movement, but that provides enough support. This bra is it. The design is deceptively simple with the velcro closure on the adjustable straps. The straps lie flat, and the back eye-hook closure makes it a serious bra - for those of us with D or larger cup sizes, I think we all know that pull-over bras just don't always provide enough side support. I have the black one, and it looks great. I would feel comfortable wearing this bra with nothing over it in hot weather, or with just a light tank. I wear it for running, but it would also be great for soccer or basketball.

Nice alternative to pull over bra
I have always used the pull on style of bra for running and been considering trying one that fastens like a regular bra for easier on and off when sweaty. Though I am a 36B and this bra is recommended for C and D cups, it does come in smaller sizes and works just as well for us! This bra is a gorgeous color and very comfortable to wear. My ony reason for not giving it 5 stars is that the straps are adjustable - with velcro backing and I haven't quite found the perfect fit for them. At what I think is the right length, the bulk of the velcro presses down on the top of my collar bones and is a little uncomfortable after extended use. I'm still experimenting and it isn't so bad that I would stop wearing the bra.
Girls don't go ANYWHERE!
AWESOME immobilizing bra. The headline says it all - no movement whatsoever. After losing some weight, I found that my lululemon TaTa Tamer didn't support quite as well as it used to and I decided to give Fiona a try.
Overall, I'm very happy with the bra. The only draw back is that the band seems a bit snug, though I haven't worn it on the largest hook setting yet, so it could be that I just haven't found the right way to wear it for my bust shape. It certainly does flatten the bust, which is why I selected the option, though I don't necessarily consider that a Con (where are they gonna go if they're packed in there snug as two bugs in a rug?). Cute colors are a plus!
This one is ok
I bought this after viewing a "bounce test" video on youtube. I think overall it is an ok bra- I have a small bust and it is a little more constrictive than I am used to. The colors are great, and I like the concept of adjustable velcro straps- but it is a little hard to get the adjustments correct. The one thing I thought was weird is that after running 30 minutes on the treadmill there was quite a bit of sweat on the underside of the cups- I thought that odd and think perhaps it's because of what I consider to be a lot of material. The other thing- if you like to wear a fitness bra under other clothes, this may not be the bra for you as it has vertical seams that go from the rib band up to the top of the cup- very large seams!
All in all, I think this is a good bra if you are a runner and don't necessarily care about how it looks through clothes.
This running bra has literally saved my life. I am a larger busted woman (36DD) and currently am training or my second marathon. I have suffered for a long time now from uncomfortable bras that allow for too much movement-causing plenty of pain as well as serious chafing. This bra does not move. It is so comfortable and makes me feel lighter when I run because my breasts aren't bouncing everywhere and weighing me down. I have had zero chafing since I have started using it, even on 20+ mile runs! I am going to buy at least two more because it is the ONLY bra I will wear now while running.
The only sports bra I'll wear
I have worn this brand exclusively for 4+ years! I am a size 6 but also a natural size 34DD. I use to have to wear 2 sports bras when jogging/working out. (It was uncomfortable, looked tacky and I constantly was chafed.) The adjustable straps on this sports bra allow me to keep everything stable, which makes my runs more comfortable. The bonus is that the bra looks cute, too! (You could wear it "as is" without a shirt over it.) I've run 13+ miles and have not been chafed. I've recommened this to all of my larger-chested friends. My only tip is to adjust the straps to the correct spot then sew or pin them in place.
Love it so much I bought another!!
I bought this bra because of the great reviews it received, and I also loved the price and decided to give it a try. I quickly regretted buying only one, and called Road Runner to buy another because it is THAT comfortable! I bought the bra for running, but realized that it was more than supportive for horseback riding as well. I even wore this bra all day while teaching and didn't notice any shoulder strain (a previous problem with other running bras). Since I am a larger-busted woman, I like my bras to be comfortable, and this bra didn't make me feel as though my torso was in a vise all day! Definitely worth it!!

Best one for me!
Love this bra! I went to sports bra fitting at my local store and found this one to do the best job for me. It fits well, the straps are easy to adjust (FRONT velcro adjustments, must have been a woman who designed it!), and most importantly, it supports well. I am a big girl (44C currently) who works out and runs regularly; this is the only sports bra I've found that is both comfortable and supportive enough for me. It would be nice if it were available in the 'pretty' colors in my size, but the main thing is it does the job, so I'm sold.

THE 'BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE' BRA
I purchased this bra online and was a bit hesitant because I usually have to try on all clothing before I buy it to make sure it fits. I love this bra. I bought it for running, but it is comfortable enough to wear throughout the day if I wanted to. It doesn't smash me but it offers enough support that I don't bounce around. I bought the size I usually wear in a bra and it fits great. I just wish I would have bought more than one.
I Love Fiona :)
I love the adjustable shoulder straps. Plenty of comfortable support to keep me from painfully bouncing during jogging,soft to the touch and comfortable. The bottom band stays flat, doesn't roll or creep up. It's pretty and can be worn without a T-shirt cover up - love the blue! What really surprises me is I expressed my needs to the phone sales agent and she put all of them in check with this bra. All this without even trying it on!
Puttin' an end to the bounce parade!
As a middled aged size 8 who wears a DD, I have tried multiple sports bras with absolutely zero success...until Fiona! I read the description and reviews, but didn't really believe any of them. Out of desperation, I ordered one. Within 3 days, I ordered a second. I am ecstatic! I am no longer the only large breasted woman in my aerobics classes bouncing up and down and side to side to the music! I have found the answer! Thanks so much!
My favorite workout bra!
I liked the first one so much I bought a second! I have several other workout bras, including some with underwire (not comfortable for working out) and this one is by far the best support & comfort for running/high impact workouts. I am a 34DD, and this keeps the girls securely in place. The only problem I sometimes have is the straps don't always want to stay in place - I think there is a similar bra with a racerback design that will be my next purchase for the best of both worlds!
great sports bra
As a nursing mom who needs a smaller band size/larger cup size, this bra is great. The adjustable velcro straps are great. I would buy it in a 30D if it existed but 32D on the smallest hooks works well enough. I have worn this for a triathlon under a tri shirt and it worked great. I would give it 5 stars if it came in a smaller band size and had a little better encapsulation but as is, it is great for running/biking/tennis and all of the other activities I do.
Wear it all day for everything bra
Very supportive bra that still manages to be pretty. I was happy to see it available in pastel blue this Spring. My black and 2 white ones from last Spring still look new despite being machine washed every week for a year. I own 4 of these bras. It also comes in a wide range of sizes like my "hard to find" 32 C. It does flatten you slightly, but you want that in a running bra.
Most Comfortable Supportive Bra EVER
Because of neck problems, I can't wear a typical racerback sports bra. This bra has straps and a hook back closure that fits like a regular every-day bra and doesn't pull on your neck. The cushioned straps are adjustable with velcro making it easy to adjust even mid-stride and they don't slip down at all. This bra also has great support. Even when I'm sprinting, I experience no bounce, jiggle, or pain. This is by far the best sports bra I've ever owned. I'm working on getting one in every color.
I needed a comfortable, breathable bra for Zumba classes. I love Zumba and take 3+ classes a week.But I also am a big woman who heats up very fast. This bra is comfie, shows a nice little piece of fabric in the v-neck of my shirts, does not lead to overheating and keeps the girls from bouncing all over. Great bra. Will buy another. My daughter has the purple and it's such great color![...]
Another fantastic bra by Moving Comfort!
I have been looking for a sports bra that was comfortable, easy to remove, and adjustable...this bra delivered what I wanted and more! I ordered the coral color and it is nice and bright not to mention easy to find in a stuffed drawer. The elastic on the band is wide and does not slip. It is very comfortable and is easy to remove since it has clasps. I also love the adjustable straps. I am a nursing mom and this feature is nice to have. I use this bra for running but im sure it will also work wonderfully for other sports and activities.
My new favorite!
I wanted a sports bra that I could wear alone running & not have it look like I forgot to put a shirt on. This has been perfect! Have worn it for about 6-8 weeks and it's hands down my favorite. Getting more in different colors! I'm usually a 32C in most bras (Natori & Wacoal) but was most comfortable in a 32D in the Moving Comfort Fiona (the C squished too much.) NO chafing along the band like my old Champion bras & the straps on this are very comfy (padded/non sliding.)

Thank you moving comfort
Finally I found a supportive sports bra that fits me!
I have a very small rib cage and an average bust size (30-32 d/c). Most sports bras come in s-m-l and to find one that fits my rib cage I have to get s or xs which is almost always too small for my bust.
This bra fits well is comfortable, flattering and give fantastic support!!!
For all the women out there who are not a 34 B/C this bra is for you!!!!!!

Great fit, comfort and support
Tried this bra for the first time and was pleasantly surprised! Excellent fit, comfort and support. My size, 32D, is difficult to find in a supportive athletic bra. Too often I wear a 34C in other bras, to avoid an overly large D cup. The 32D in this bra is true to size, with the D cup being a properly proportioned "D" for someone who wears a "32" bandsize.

Currently deployed to the middle east. I bought these as I am only able to wear sports bras. I have not been dissapointed! They are comforatable as well as durable. I run between 15 and 20 miles weekly as well as lift weights and the support is AMAZING. I did buy one cup size smaller than what I am due to my experience with sports bras streching out and I have not had that problem with these bras. They hold the girls in place and NO bouncing around!
Comfortable, but can see nipples
This is a nice sports bra. I like that it provides adequate support (I'm a D32), is comfortable, and breathable. I don't like that does NOT have foam molded cups; you can see my nipples through it. Also, the lining of the cups can crease which shows through to bra. I should mention that the straps can become uncomfortable, depending on where you adjust them to. Overall, I'm happy and will probably purchase more.
This is a great bra. I originally had to send mine back to Road Runner Sports because the shell and the lining were not correctly sewn together, which made the lining bunch-up accross the entire front of the bra. I replaced the product with another of the same model and color, and the replacement works perfectly. Just ran the NYC marathon in it... works great!
Great running bra
This bra is very comfortable and easy to get on and off. The adjustable straps are the best because you can loosen them post-workout so that the bra is comfortable enough to wear around for awhile. Occasionally, the band around the bottom tends to chafe, but I have experienced this with other bras as well. A little body glide is the perfect cure.

I am really pleased with this bra. It fits true to size and I like the ease of taking it off and on with the regular clasp back. I ran in it today and stayed in place without much bounce(36C) and was comfortable. I would prefer a totally smooth front without the seams showing, but they are not right across the front and more to the side, so that is not too bad. A little of the bra will show if you wear a racer back tank, but the back straps go in toward the center much more than regular bra straps do. This is definately a comfortable, well made bra.

I got the green color, which is a great pop of color, but this bra is not as supportive as the CW-X sports bras. I would not rank this as a 3 Maximum Support bra since it is not very supportive of my 36D size. The wicking properties of this bra are great, and I really like the fabric, so I will keep it for shorter runs.

This bra is kind of strange. I have two and one supports better than the other. To the point where I can only wear the one during a run (I'm a 36C). Consequently, I love the support of only one. Another draw back is the clasps. So cheap! I have to fix them after each wash - I don't hand wash. I can't buy more of these since I need a bra that can handle the "handwash" cycle on my washing machine - like my other bras can. I'm sticking with Champion Powerback.

After searching for two years for for a sports bra that would accommodate my new girls I found this bra in a 32DD. The band was true to size and I can finally complete a step aerobics class again with minimal bounce. This bra is stylish, adjustable and does a good job of whisking away sweat. Best support and fit I have found after trying on and passing on at least 15 brands and various styles there within.

This is boobs-up my favorite running bra! I also have the Maia but don't care for that one so much. I started running as a 38DD but got this in a 40C. I'd been told and read that when the actual size doesn't fit quite right go up in band and down in cup 1 size.
The bra has been fabulous. Most of the time I don't even know I am wearing it. I only notice a little bounce when the boobs are tender during "that time of month." No problems with the straps at all, surprised to read that.
Anyway, I am now buying a couple more in my actual size since I am down to a 38D. I pray they never stop making this bra!

I love everything about it except for the bottom of the band kind of presses on the top of my ribs in a way that I can feel my breathing being restricted. I am hoping I can break it in and erase that sensation. I am 5'2" and I think that my shorter torso is why the bra band is hitting me in a spot that is a little too low. I would imagine if you are taller it won't be an issue. True to size fit.

This is my favorite running bra! I have this one and the Maia. I much prefer this one. I am a 36 D and I feel it fits true to size. It is a nice snug fit, but not constricting. I used to wear 2 bras, and now I do not have to. This is so comfy, and I am not constantly reminded that I am wearing a sports bra. It has a nice sweat band that is nice and soft against the skin. I am definately going to buy another one of these! This is the best sports bra I have ever worn, and believe me, I have spent a pretty penny on tons of them.

I bought this because of the excellent reviews from other well-endowed ladies; I kept it because it did what it promised. :) I'll stick with this one as long as it is around! :) Just for reference - I have a D/DD chest.

While this bra is great at preventing the bounce it's also kind of painful. I am generally a 34D or 36D but in this bra I have a 34DD and a 36D, the 34DD makes it sort of hard for me breathe (the 34D was really bad) but the 36 tends to ride up in the back. My sister, who is also large chested, had the same experience.

The fit is good, but the velcro on the strap adjustment doesn't hold. I'm surprised no one has mentioned this, because it is no fun to try and stick your bra straps together while you run. I finally sewed them shut, so that there is no possibility of adjustment anymore, but at least I don't have to hold onto my bra. I also ran a row of stitching around the band to keep it from rolling over.

I was disappointed with this bra as the shining reviews I read prompted me to buy it. I bought the 40D and found that it gave very good support for high intensity walking, but not running. The wide, adjustable straps are extremely comfortable. The hook back closure is annoying and make it hard to get on... and after one wash - without putting it in the dryer - one of the hooks came out. On a positive note the fabric is AMAZING! I will return this style and try something else from moving comfort.

I have been wearing the MC Fiona (34D) for about 3 years now. I have experimented with other running bras but nothing compares to this one. With the ability to adjust the shoulder straps and the band, makes all the difference. I won't go back to any others. This is the best!

When I look for maximum support, MC never lets me down. I find that that broad shoulder straps and deep cups really support me through my tai-bo classes and 1-mile family fun runs with my dog in tow. The pink color is my new fave, and my new industry rep boyfriend doesn't mind it either :)

As far as comfort and support, this bra is great! However, the first time I washed it, and yes I put it in the dryer, one of the hooks fell out.

This is the most comfortable sports bra I have ever owned. Would like to start a collection so I can wear one every time I run. I'm a 38C and have no bounce. Have not experienced any chafing. Maybe I have too much padding :-) I forget I'm even wearing it. Please stock38Cs again soon.

I looked for awhile before I chose the Fiona. I'm a 34C and needed the maximum support w/o the uniboob effect that i'm constantly getting from lesser bras. This one has been perfect, I will order more in the future. The only thing I can find not to love about it is the adjustable straps dig into my collarbone a little bit, but not really enough to bother me much.

I'm tall with a long torso...the adjustable straps on this are great! This bra doesn't have as much of the mono-boob effect like other sports bras. Very supportive but not restrictive. I wish I had bought 3 more...when will there be more 34Cs?

If I had only known about this sports bra back in high school my boobs would probably be a lot perkier! I love this bra! I'm a 34 DD and I'll be darn, those suckers don't move when I run now! So much more comfotable then doubbling or trippling my bras like before! A God send! Only one thing, since my chest doesn't have it's own "support" any more, they do get just a tad squished together, but Ijust "move" 'em around and they're fine =)

This is one of the best sports bras I've owned. I love the adjustable straps and back closure. I'm 5'2" and a 32C and less adjustable bras usually don't support me because they're either too long or too loose in the band. The bra material itself is firm and not very stretchy so I don't bounce at all. I've never had trouble with chafing, even on longer (10 mi) runs in sweaty weather, probably because I wear the bra too snug to move around and cause friction.

Best sports bra, ever! There is a spot that chaffed, but kept it covered with some Vaseline and it wasn't a problem. Run lots a miles in these... best by far.

I am a small-chested, large breasted runner - a 34 DD - so I need plenty of support. This bra did it. I love the soft fabric, and the great colors it comes in. One complaint though - I got some bad hot spots and chafing where the bra straps thread through the bra cups on the front. This only happened on longer, sweatier runs (9-10 miles or more), and could probably be prevented with more Bodyglide.

This is the best bra for me, & I've tried many, I'm 34d & thought I'd always have to bounce. On long runs I was getting chafing under the chest band but I just put on some body glide & the problem is solved.

This bra gives amazing bounce control and support, but is still so comfortable that I forget I'm wearing it. I used to have to layer two bras, but with this one, everything stays in place and I can run comfortably. And it's a nice change from bras that feel like straight jackets. A great find.

I have tried at least 6 different running systems and stopped with this one. It is the best for larger bust gals. After I lost some weight, I had chaffing too but went down a size and didn't chaff. I am running 16-20 miles on the weekend in this... sure beats wearing three jog bras!

This bra holds me in tight and is comfortable, yet, on long runs I get chaffing under the breast and along the strap lines.

I'm a full dd-ddd and I was skeptical about this one but it's a decent bra even with no underwire. I bounce but it's not horribly bad and it's worth it for an alternative to the Enell full metal jacket I normally wear. I'm considering buying a few to keep on hand.

My all-time favorite running bra. I have 7 of them! I do have a bit of chafing right in the front where the band hits my breastbone, but I was attributing that to my weight loss and needing a smaller size. I switched from a 36 to a 34 and this problem went away. I don't feel any bounce in this at all and it does me great on my long runs and short runs!

This bra is a miracle! At 34DD, I was tired of wearing multiple sports bras to get support. This one holds me in place. I run short distances, so I didn't have any chafing problems. Best sports bra I've ever worn!

This bra is great for the Broad back with a larger cup size. Its the only one that holds me in place. I am a 36 C and I love it. The only ddraw back is that the back hooks like a regular bra so its kinda "bra" looking when I want to run without a shirt. The straps are adjustable for extra support but they can rub on the collar bone some.

I bought this on the Maximum Support rating and Moving Comfort brand.
Overall, the bra is good and fits well.
I am a 32C and I was still bouncing in this bra. If it had adequate 'cups' that form to you this would help maintain the support.
It's a better bra for light cardio or weight lifting, not running.

I was very happy with the good support and easy way to put it on. It was excellent for short and medium runs. However, in my long runs (16 to 23 miles) it badly chafed my skin in the front lower part of my chest.
