I was mildly reluctant to give this bra a try since it is new and had no prior reviews. It has everything I was looking for... mega, no-bounce support for my 38D size, contoured, cushy cups with no-see-through modesty, and comfortable, no-rubbing or pinching, straps and band. Boy, am I ever glad I tried it!! After looking far and wide for a replacement for my favorite sport bras that have been discontinued, I have finally found a perfect replacement! I'm off to order three more!!
Flattering not flattening!
I bought this bra over the summer because I love Moving Comfort products and because it was new and I wanted to check it out. I couldn't have been happier. Finally, a sports bra that does its job as far as support goes but that is also breathable,keeps me dry by wicking moisture away, has great racer back style that lets you move and isn't impossible to get on and off. Oh, and did I mention how it is flattering as well?! The molded cups help with modesty on those chilly mornings but yet define your curves without flattening them. I just finished a half marathon this morning and had no discomfort or chafing whatsoever from this bra. I ordered it in both black and white. [...]If you are looking for great support, breathability and a flattering bra that goes the distance then this is the one for you!
Ree Ree the Runner
This bra really provides great support. There is almost no bounce at all when jogging/jumping/etc. I followed the sizing chart and everything fits well. The only drawback for me is that the straps dig into my shoulders a bit. I am a new runner and haven't shopped for many sports bras so maybe that is normal. It is just a bit difficult to get off when you are sweaty but isn't too bad. Overall, I would definitely recommend this bra as it provides great support and I forget about the straps when I start running.
Comfortable and supportive
I bought this bra in black, green, and white. For some reason, the straps on the white version tend to dig into my shoulders a bit. But the black and green versions are perfect. Very supportive and comfortable for running. There is even a bit of padding in the front which prevents nipple show-through. This bra does not flatten me out either. I barely remember I have it on. I ordered 34C and it was true to size. Very stylish too - you could get away with wearing it on its own.
Quality construction but runs large
The color and back contrast of this bra are stylish. I wear a 34D, but when I received it the tag says Large c/d cup. The molded pads in the cups were gaping over my chest. I have another moving comfort bra in D size which fits well, yet does not have molded padding inside either. I couldn't see how this bra could support me so I sent it back. I did not want to try the medium, since this band did fit I thought a medium would be difficult to get on/off as there are no hook closures on this style. I would rate the cup size at least DD.

Great Sports Bra for High Impact Sports
I am very happy with this sports bra. I'm between a B/C cup but am also a nursing mom and this bra fits the bill for being supportive and comfortable for running without completely squashing me. I would definitely recommend this bra and suspect that larger busted women might appreciate the support even more than I do! Would love to see some more colors offered.
I love this bra! I am new to running, but have worked up to 10 miles. I wear Vixen for all of my long runs! It looks great and also feels great. The only complaint I have is when doing crunches, the seams on the shoulders can irritate the skin a little bit. I have this one as well as Fiona, and I have to say that I prefer this one!

Finally an answer to my problems
I have tried numerous bras for running and have never been totally pleased until I tried this one. I love that there are no hooks that tend to be uncomfortable. I have also not had any chafing with this one when I run long distances. There is enough support without smashing the girls and they look natural. (No uniboob) This bra is also padded enough for modesty on cold mornings.

I love this bra
I bought this bra in black, just to check it out, it is the most comfortable sports bra I have ever worn. Plus, doesn't flatten out your chest, yet provides great support. Loved it so much I went back and bought four more!!
Great bra for running!
I trained for a full marathon last year and the Fiona bra was what I used all last year. Looking at a second year of training and needing new bras, I started looking for a racerback bra that would be both supportive, comfortable and non-chafing for my long runs. I had lost weight and wanted to move into more of a racerback style top to run in. I thought I would give the Vixen a try since Moving Comfort had proven to be a good brand for me. I accidentally ordered two of them in black. I was going to send one back when I realized my mistake, but after I wore it a few times I decided to keep it! It's really a great bra for me. It hasn't chafed on my long runs, and honestly, I forget all about it while I'm running. I'll admit that at first, it was a little hard to get off. But, I've learned to just roll the band up, grab it and pull up. No big deal. I also like the extra layer that helps me out on "chillier" mornings in my group runs. Great product. I'm thinking of ordering the blue next.
I recently lost 30 pounds, going from a 36D to (almost) a 36C. This bra fits perfectly and looks and feels great.
Neener- You bought the wrong size
Neener- You should have bought a Medium for your bra size, not a large. Here is moving comfort's sizing for this style according to their website. [...]Sizes:S (32CD-34C)M (34CD-36C)L (36CD-38C)XL (38CD-40C)
Nice support and coverage, but...
This is a great bra with pretty good non-show through coverage in the front (you could see something, but it wasn't jumping out at you)! It fits well and supports nicely. However, it's a real trick to get out of - unless you like to ask other people to help you out of your sports bra, which I do not. So I'd recommend it for great looks and support, but caution those with shoulder issues or flexibility problems to try on at the store and be sure you can get back out!
I run about 2 to 4 times a week. This bra is very comfortable and supportive. I love the individual cups. They keep things separate and in place without feeling smashed down. This is my fourth bra so far. I'll keep buying them as long as they keep making them. My only complaint is that the white fabric get dingy pretty quickly and I can't seem to whiten it up again. I do like the other color and trim combos.
Beware the shoulder seams!
I was hoping this bra would work for low- to moderate-impact activities, as opposed to running, because my 36Ds are hard to tame. The support is good for biking and hiking, but it's not solid enough for running. That level of support would be fine if it weren't for the seams on the shoulders that chafe pretty badly. I can wear it for biking, where I'm not moving my arms so much, but I still need some body glide to prevent super chafe. Overall, a disappointment.
Terrific pullover, maximum support bra for small chested C/D cup gals
In my continual search for the perfect pull over, sans hardware running bra, the Vixen is at the tip of my list. I'm a 34D and most running bras for D cups are generally way too much bra, and have a hook and eye closure in the back which irritates my skin. Love this bra and it comes in so many colors! Do all you high impact sports in the Vixen! Breathable too!
This bra looks and feels good on. It has great coverage in front so nothing shows or pokes through. I've had no bounce in front when I run, which I do in other sport bras, so it's very supportive. The only negative I've found is it's difficult to take off. It doesn't have zippers or snaps, and is tight, so if I ever had an arm injury, I wouldn't be able to take it off.
Not for Running....
Super comfortable....I am a 38D so bought the XL. It fit great but I won't be able to wear it for running. I went on a short run and the bounce control was not what I need. I will keep it for other activities but it won't be used for running. I would still recommend it for the comfort factor.

On/Off is tough but during is great
Once I have on this bra, I love it. It fits well and you barely notice it while you are jogging - which for me says "perfect". However, the band has almost no stretch to it so if you get the size that will fit on your ribcage it is difficult to get on and off over your head and shoulders.
Bulky and hard to get on
This is well made and attractive. Great support...think it would be fine for running. However, it is hard to get on and off. And, the molded cups are too bulky and hot for running in any kind of heat. I sweat a lot and wonder how heavy these cups will be once they've absorbed all the perspiration!
Good sports bra
This is a good sorts bra but I do not recommend it if you plan on wearing it running. The girls bounce too much for me in this bra when I ran in it. It is good for weight training and yoga.I have also worn it to work. The quality of the bra is good. I will most likely buy more for everyday use.
Comfortable and supportive
this is a great product, although it is difficult to get off, it has great support, is very comfortable and it keeps everything in place when working out. Overall, a great product that I would purchase again.

Great for running, no bounce!
Use for running. Love the no bounce support and padded cups to diminish headlights. The band can cause chafing during long sweaty runs, I use a anti-chafe product. Overall, great bra with wide color selection.
No chafing on long runs!
Great support and no chafing on long, hot runs! My main challenge is the padding: it is wonderful because it is sewn in, so it doesn't get messed up when you wash the bra. But, since I do triathlons, I like to remove the padding so that the bra will dry faster after the swim, while I'm cycling. Since I cannot have both, I always wear this bra for my long runs. No chafing is a definite benefit!
Another challenge is, because of the tight support, expect to wrestle with the bra to get it off after your run.
Great bra, I would buy it again
This a simple and comfortable bra that I would definitely buy again. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's a little difficult to get the bra off, especially when you're all sweaty after a workout. Aside from that, the color is true to what is displayed on the website (I got the fruit punch/true black colorway) and the fit is true to size. I like that the band doesn't ride up while I'm running and it holds everything in place without being super tight.
Great running bra or if you want the support for high impact - gives you nice curve. Only thing, I wish there was a clasp of sorts just to make it easier to get on & off!

Comfy and does the trck.
Too bad I think Brooks is discontinuing this bra. Some of their other ones are crazy hard to get on and off (looking at you, Juno and rebound racer) While it isn't necessarily something I would do over 10 miles in, as I am a 34DD, it is great for shorter runs.
Amazingly supportive sports bra
Comfortable and supportive for long distance and time work outs.
What a pleasant surprise.
I had been wearing RR Sports sports bras and was anxious about trying something else. I was very pleasantly surprised. Very comfortable and excellent support.
I do not recommend this product.
i wear this bra at the gym for medium impact training. Once on, I have no complaint. Getting it on or off is a major problem.
