    First off, let me say that before I bought this sports bra I was using a different brand bra that I had bought years ago and which was too small for me. My old sports bra was a 36B and now I'm a 34D. The old bra was a compression bra which kept me completely motionless, but was a pain to get on.

    I had been searching for a new bra for several months but found that none gave the support and stability of my old bra. I saw this bra on sale, but was nervous because I had tried a few other MC bras and not had a good experience. I took a chance anyway.

    Boy am I glad I bought it! So much easier to put on than my old bra, with a good range of motion and support. The clasp that is supposed to insure the bra doesn't unzip is hard for me to close, but I haven't used it and haven't had trouble with the zipper coming undone.

    I have heard some people with larger cups say this didn't support them well enough, but as a D who runs every day in this product, I haven't had any problems. I'm held in without being totally squashed. I also do Jillian Michael's workouts and my own routines with this bra and haven't had any problems. Especially with the sale I got, this was a GREAT deal!

    I tried using this for boot camp. The bottom part of the zipper started digging into me. I am a 38DD. Maybe if I was less top heavy it wouldn't dig in so much. For me, the straps are too close to my neck and it is irritating.
    I do like the hook behind the zipper to keep it from falling down, which has not been an issue. It is a nice reassurance. The fabric behind the zipper is excellent and provides comfort.
    I still wear it for shorter bike rides, but I would not purchase it again nor do I recommend it for anyone larger than a C cup.

    Not like the original one from 3 yr ago

    By 2 mile a day girl

    from Iowa

    Pros

    • Fabric Nice Washes Good
    • Wicks The Sweat

    Cons

    • Not Large Enough For 38dd
    • Old Model Covered More
    • Old Model Zipper Better

    Best Uses

    • At Home Workouts

    Comments about Grace II C/D:

    I was slightly disappointed as I've been using the older model for 3-4 years and love it. This one does not cover enough (but I have large breasts-38DD) so can only use at home all packed in. The fabric is the same which will hold up for ever and easy to rinse/wash out. Too bad they did not stick with the original model as that one was spot on.

    Prefer the old style

    By Upside Down

    from Rochester, NY

    Pros

    • Easy to wear
    • Supportive

    Cons

    • less coverage

    Best Uses

    • Medium-high Impact Sports

    Comments about Grace II C/D:

    Much prefer the old style. I use this bra for acrobatic workouts and want a lot of control. I dislike the deeper V in front, as I want to be sure things won't move around (or fall out) when I'm upside down. I really liked the flattening effect of the previous style, though this isn't a huge change, because I want as little movement as possible. Who are you testing these bras on, that cares more about how they look than their functionality? There's nothing wrong with using this bra as a sexy workout shirt, but I use it for an intense workout. It used to be the best sports bra I could find for that, but now I'm disappointed that I'm probably going to have to find a new go-to sports bra when my previous style Grace bras wear out. Pros: It's fine for everyday use or most gym activities, though! It's easy to put on and take off with the front zipper.

    Works better as a bustier than a bra

    By AJS262

    from Golden, CO

    Pros

    • None

    Cons

    • Chafe
    • Chafes
    • Improper Fit
    • Unzips
    • Unzips While Running

    Best Uses

      Comments about Grace II C/D:

      I am a 34-C, and a small one at that. I bought the Grace bra designed for the C/D cup and cannot get the girls in it. I'm squishing out the top and the sides - not sure how someone who was a large C or a D would get this thing on.
      The bra design forces the breasts in and up, meaning they rub against each other when you run. The result - serious chafing issues in the cleavage. I also severely chaffed around the rib cage, under the girls. I'm not quite sure what this bra was designed for, but it would work better as a bustier for a Halloween costume than it does as apparel on a long run. This may be the most uncomfortable and dysfunctional piece of clothing I've ever purchased.

      I prefer the previous design, better fit

      By Griz Gal

      from Missoula, MT

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Dip In Front Ok
      • Front Closure Better
      • Previous Design Better

      Cons

      • 32 Dd Last Design Better
      • Needs To Go Up On Sides
      • Not As Good For Odd Sizes
      • Previous Design Better

      Best Uses

      • Ok But Not Great For

      Comments about Grace II C/D:

      The front design improved but the support for my size is not near as comfortable and supportive as previous design. Material does not appear as supportive and sturdy. I had to give the 5 bras away.

      Worth the money

      By MCE

      from Virginia

      Pros

      • Nothing Moves Comfy

      Cons

      • Hard to zip up

      Best Uses

      • Running

      Comments about Grace II C/D:

      This is by far the best bra on the market for gals who like to run and need proper support. It is hard to zip up, but that is perhaps because I am small, but busty and because this is a brand new bra. My first two Grace bras lasted me 3 years before one of the zippers gave out and both had stretched out. I wore them a lot. I love this bra. It is the only bra on the market that gives the proper support. Nothing moves. Highly recommend this product.

            It does shrink a tad bit, but not like others on the market.
