It stays put when working out, never rides up, never curls up at the edges, and provides great coverage. The padding is just enough but not too much.

Not cotton so you don't get all chafed up if you get sweaty. These are oversized with the long armholes, so you get a peek of your sports bra underneath which I'm fine with. I like that fit for lifting and running." —Amazon Customer
