Rated 5 out of 5 by CaveatTalonWager A very pleasant surprise
For many years I've gotten my sports bras from a well known sports supplier and have paid a hefty price for them. Although they have always been well made and lasted for years, there is one thing that has annoyed me to no end...the lack of adjustment capabilities in the shoulder straps. For this reason I've become one of those women that whips that bra off the second that I'm home, and run round the house with the girls floating free. There was a day when I could get away with this...but sadly, it's not a good idea for me now.
I don't know why but I've never even noticed that LLBean sells bras. I was poking around on their website one day and saw this bra. Being tired of having my girls bound up around my neck with my other unadjustable bras, I decided to just take a leap of faith and try this one out. This is one of the best decisions I've made in a long while!
The shoulder straps are indeed adjustable. My girls are not saggy, but I do seem to have a lot of space between the top of my shoulders and where my girls like to hang out...perhaps it's because I'm tall? Don't know. But after spending YEARS pulling my fixed strap bras down every time I think no one is looking, this bra is like a GODSEND. FINALLY...a COMFORTABLE bra! No more having to yank this thing off the second I walk into the house. THANK YOU LLBEAN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wavechaser Great for high impact
This is the second Fiona bra I've gotten. I bought one years ago & liked it so much that I wanted to order another one. At that time that I checked they were no longer available. I was thrilled to recently see that they are back. My older one is still holing up great after years of regular use in a variety of high impact classes. It is difficult to find quality bras that hold my big girls in place without bounce, and this bra is worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GenericUserName Favorite Sports Bra -- Great addition, LLBean
This has been my favorite sports bra for more than 5 years. I've had 3 that wore like iron during that time, with daily use. I've bought it from other stores but was thrilled to come across it recently in an LLBean outlet. I didn't know LLBean carried it -- please keep offering them!!
As other reviews mentioned, it is lightweight, but has very little give so does it's job well. (I'm a 34DD/DDD, and I like sports bras tight.) It's quick on-and-off, due to the back closure -- great for fast changes at the gym or after work. It doesn't exactly "separate," so I find I can only wear it for a few hours on hot days or it gets sweaty. Not an all-day bra for work, but very good at eliminating bounce for work-outs. Very durable. I had one for 4 years when one hook finally gave out. The velcro generally settles down after the first couple wears -- sometimes it comes undone in the wash but is easy to close back up. I have sensitive skin and don't find that I'm ever scratched by it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ClaudiaSTL Comfortable and Supportive
I hesitated to buy a sports bra online without trying it on, but ordered my bra size and this fits perfectly! It is very comfortable and supportive for running. And if the band starts to stretch over time, I can adjust it a notch in with the hooks in back. Easier to get on and off with the bra-style closure in back (vs. over the head when sweaty). And at the sale price plus my $10 gift card, it was a bargain! I'm very happy with this purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by slh2b3 Super comfortable
I'm tired of sports bras that ride up and offer no support. This bra fits well, is very comfortable, doesn't ride up, and I don't find myself rushing to take it off at the end of the day. Very pleased. Will order another soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bamagram Tight but does the job!
When I first tried this on, I thought I would have to return it. Too tight. But it is supposed to be tight. Keeps the "girls" in line. Gives me great posture. I am immediately energized for my walk. The back closure makes it easy to put on. I purchased another one piece sports bra and it is a struggle to get on. The Velcro straps are the only thing I do not like as they come undone when I put on the bra. I will be sewing the straps closed. I am a big woman, 5 ft 8 in and 212 lbs. so I am pleased to find a nice looking sports bra that actually fits and is comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by emmy1 Better with time
When I received this bra I didn't care for it. The band felt tight and restrictive. However, after a few washings , and I let it air dry , it now fits well. It keeps the girls in place with no bounce when running and also no headlights visible on cool mornings.
I was looking for a bra that doesn't go over the head, some can be a real struggle getting it off when wet , and this bra fits the bill well.
I liked the straps which are easily adjustable.
