Really Nice BraJan 18, 2011
I must say although some of the reviews here speak ill of this bra I have no probs with it. First of all it's a sports bra, not a Victoria's Secret push-up....boob separation is not necessary, when it's supposed to be combating jiggle. It does however come with molded cups and no underwire and it still isn't uncomfortable to me
I should also mention that I ordered on cup size smaller: I'm a 34D and I ordered the 34C. I did this for extra compression because I hate the jiggle when doing cardio/running.
-The bra band fits snug enough and does not bite.
-Even with a cup size down the bra is not tight. I can breathe properly without the feeling of suffocation
-Adjustable straps (these are a heaven sent). Adjusting too tight will cause the straps to dig into the shoulder.
-No underwire and the girls stay in place.
-Overall it's really comfortable. I jumped up and down like rabbit and had no problems at all
-Back closure...need I say more
-Wider strap placement. Let's face it, if you have big boobs racer back styles do not cut it where support is concerned. Because these straps are placed more like those on a regular bra they offer more support.
-There is still some amount of jiggle, not too much to be uncomfortable though.
-Doesn't wick sweat away easily..prepare to stay wet
The Fiona is similar but offers more compression and no jiggle /much less jiggle than with the Helena. I do recommend ordering a cup size smaller for more compression

Amazing SupportOct 25, 2010
This sports bra is wonderful. It keeps the girls separate and front and center instead of squished to my chest like regular sports bras. The straps are so comfy and wide. And best of all--VERY little bounce! My only caveat is the lack of support on the sides. Flesh in that area is a bit more obvious. Wouldn't be on someone smaller than a size 16, I'm sure. And, it's not enough to make me regret the purchase by any means. It really is very comfortable, doesn't restrict anywhere.

Good support but little to no boob separationSep 19, 2010
Read the title for my review - it says a lot. I'm short too, so have to adjust the straps up on every bra I ever get. With this one, you can adjust them up (has velcro which is nice), but it quickly gets to the point where the straps are too wide to fit thru the holes. So this bra stays in the drawer most of the time.

Decent braApr 28, 2011
By Abigail Perry
I was skeptical about buying a wire-free sports bra again because, in the past, they didn't work at all and I always had to wear another bra underneath it. This bra is very comfortable, no bite whatsoever but I still have to wear another bra underneath it unless I want uni-boob galore. I am a 36 DD/DDD and the 36 DD that I ordered fits just fine, especially on the sides which is rare for a sports bra. Anyway, I recommend this product but for most of the big-busted women out there, if you want them separated you'll have to wear a different bra underneath. What a pain!

perhaps I need higher shouldersApr 16, 2011
I have some 34D Fiona models over two years old that are obviously great quality, but desperately need to retire. Thinking I would improve on a good thing, I ordered the Helena. Unfortunately for more money I got a worse fit. Although fit is unique to each, I cannot recommend this bra based on craftsmanship, either. The nylon material of the Helena is both slicker and thinner, but less breathable so sweat and air do not pass. The support was excellent, but for those of us interested in high-impact, not quite as good as the best maximum motion control bras. The M-frame itself was unnecessarily stiff (support should come from the band), and bent in the awkward places... it only slightly hindered encapsulation but greatly annoyed me. The stretch in the cloth was comfortable, a little lax but nothing troublesome, and in fact I would probably even still have kept the bra had the underarm bite not been intolerable. Generally I do not have problems in that area. It irritated my armpit and underarm in just a few minutes for hours later, and I did not even exercise once in it. Since I have no use for clothing I cannot wear, I will be ordering more of the Fiona, and have already returned the Helena.
