This is my second NB The Shockingly Unshocking sports bra. I can't say enough about this sports bra. I'm a 34D and this bra does the trick. It is so comfortable that I am wearing it under regular cloths as my underwire bras are becoming to much of a nuisance. The straps are adjustable from the front via velcro and the bra closes from the back so you don't need to deal with pulling it over your head to get it off. I have had no issues with this bra. You won't regret this purchase.

This bra is great! It's really comfortable and I love that it doesn't have padding-as a 32DD, it makes it hard when bras have padding that make my chest look even bigger. The straps have Velcro closures along the front inner straps so that the bra can be easily adjusted- this is great, but took a little getting used to. The Velcro rubbed a little at first. It doesn't do it anymore though. The bra looks nice and offers a lot of support. I would definitely recommend it!

After buying another sports bra and returning it after the ridiculously thing clasps broke, this bra is the real Champion.... (read between the lines there...) Well made, sturdy, no cheap hardware, good material, awesome design, I have now bought 3 in different colors.

I'm getting back into regular jogging and needed some new sports bras. This one feels like putting on A Serious Garment (in a good way). I specifically wanted a clipped bra instead of trying to wrestle it on and off. I've tossed it in the wash with everything else and it comes out well. I ordered a 38C and it has good support (I'm at a zombie speed jog so I can't speak for more serious exercise).

I love this bra. It's very comfortable. I was worried about the Velcro straps but I haven't had any problems with them coming undone during a run.

Perfect bra for high impact and sweaty sports. I love that the shoulder strap adjustment is on the front where you can actually reach it while wearing it. Hold the girls pretty flat so I wouldn't wear it under street clothes, but if you run, bike, row, etc, it's comfortable and really does the job.

This is the first and only sports bra I've tried that has the hook/eye closure like a non-sports bra, & I love it. I'm a 32c & size 32c fit perfect. The dread of wriggling & wrestling w/a sweaty, elastic sports bra is gone! Pro's: -shoulder straps are adjustable, fit is comfortable, support is superior -no bounce like the elasticized sports bra's that allow your chest to move. Cons: -only wore it 1x & no complaints but I will say I ended up having it on longer than I planned and could tell it really compressed my chest -no pains just a feeling of 'ahh' when I took it off after 4 hours.

I've never written a review here before, but in hopes this may help someone: This looked peach on my computer. I bought it to wear under light colored clothing. It is the most fantastically bright neon orange - shocking, in fact! Fit-wise, it is similar to Moving Comfort's Fiona, which is my mainstay.

I love this bra! I have a very large chest but a small rib cage so it can be challenging to find bras that fit snugly enough around my ribs without my cups spilling over (if you get my drift). This bra is perfect because it comes in so many sizes. Plus it has a super wide band with 3 clasps so it feels more secure than most 2 clasp bras. And I love non-racerback styles with fully adjustable straps, not some piddly little area where you can adjust just an inch or two. With these straps you can make them as short or as long as need be, and they're thick enough to be truly supportive. I run, lift weights, and bike in this sports bra, and everything stays in place. Will probably be ordering another very soon!

38DD repeat customer on this bra and just saw 38E available and and in a pretty color? Awesome. Love this thing. Zero movement, seriously. No it's not a t-shirt bra so yes it's snug, but after you have it on for a couple minutes you forget it's there. Doesn't rub anywhere. I have several chesty friends that refuse to try it yet they continue to complain about theirs. Their loss!

At first I thought I wasn't going to like this as much as I like an earlier New Balance version - but it ISN'T scratchy or overly confining and I use it a lot, even under regular clothing. Good buy.

Love this bra. I am a 44DD and only have generic, ugly sports bras. To find one made by New Balance was so exciting. I wore it today for my aerobic class and had very minimal bounce. Love the colors. Thanks so much for offering this product on my size. This was probably one of the best purchases I have made this year!

This is my favorite bra ever! It is great for everyday use, not just for exercise. The Velcro strap adjustors do not slip down like the ring-stlye adjusters do on other types of bras. The coverage is great - at the sides and in the cleavage area. It is superbly comfortable, holds my frontage in a lovely shape, and has a fastener at the back so you do not have to struggle to get it on like some types of sports bras.

The best sports bra ever. I'm a 36DD and this bra keeps everything in place during jumping, running, and everything else during boot camp. And all while being stylish and comfortable. I am incredibly happy with my purchase and I'm looking to buy more.

Freaking amazing! Keeps my 36DD in place without jiggle or strain through kickboxing and Zumba. This is the bra I've been looking for for the last 20 years. The Velcro straps are adjustable in the front, meaning easy adjustments without having to resort to cirque du soleil contortions. Definitely a great sports bra.

This is a very supportive bra for for bigger bust people. The straps are easy to adjust, as was all as they do not dig into your skin at all.

This is a nice sports bra but is a little tight for a 36 which I ordered a little larger than I usually wear. I will send it back and trade it for a 38.

I like the neckline and will be using this under a racerback top to reduce the amount of cleavage showing. Also under clothing in general, not just for working out. It droops a bit in front over the chest band and I got a small extender for the back hooks, but otherwise very nice. Not quite as minimizing and supportive as the other brand of similar sports bras, but there was no black in that series.

Since Moving Comfort changed the Maia, been looking for a new running bra- this is not it. If you're over a B cup, keep looking; this one was like running in one of those pretty ones- no support and he pain after was horrible! I'm a DD, the lack of compression and support on this one were horrible.

Pretty color, and comfortable, but I'm still bouncing in this bra. I do not use this bra for running because of the bounce factor. I am a 36DD. I didn't return it, but have it as a backup for non-running workouts. I gave 3 stars for overall because the girls don't have enough support during running.

Soft fabric. But the metal clasps connecting the straps to the bra kept twisting and dug in to my skin. Also the band seemed to trap moisture. It seemed to be a little short - it was hard to reach the back hooks to clasp/unclasp. Definitely no separation. Back to my Moving Comfort Maia. Similar look but no metal clasps and easy on/off.
