    Promising review: "Fit true to size, a little snug in the band, but to be expected in a sports bra. It’s a beautiful material that feels luxe and it breathes well when working out, too.

    Promising review: "Love this bra. It was everything I'd hoped it would be.

    Promising review: "I was nervous about the phone pocket, but it didn't bother me at all running with it! I have a Google Pixel 2 and it fit fine. I appreciate the removable padding in the bra and it fit as expected. If you're in between sizes, I'd go a size up." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    Promising review: "I’ve been going to the gym more frequently (whoo!) and needed some sports bras for my cardio exercises. I love how the material is soft and comfortable. All too many times, the ones that I try are tight to the point where it almost restricts my breathing and gets uncomfortable! If anything, the sports bra offers just the right amount of support. My breasts are held firmly in place even when I’m running!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I purchased this bra to wear during light exercise. It turned out to be really comfortable and supportive. The removable pads make it less like a sports bra that smooches your breast down. I also think it looks fine worn under a t-shirt for everyday wear." —Amazon Customer

The straps don't slide or dig in (some bra straps are too tight on my traps and cause me to have headaches, actually), the design is adorable and the cups are comfortable and full coverage. The sizing is also just as expected." —Amazon Customer
