Wore this today on my run on the treadmill and was pleasantly surprised at how well it seemed to hold my girls in place. There is still some movement but at a 34E, I expect some. I love the 2 bras in one construction. I honestly do not remember reading this in the description but LOVE it. The gore fits firmly on my chest bone and the cups hold me in while the top layer provides compression. Really is the perfect combination. The 34E is a bit tight but should loosen up slightly. The 36DD was too loose so unless they come out with a 35, I'll go a little tighter.
The purple is much darker then shown, more of a true purple and looks great.
Have used Fionas in the past and was always ho hum about them but was the best I could find. This is definitely my new go to sports bra.
I look forward to my outdoor run on Saturday to see how it performs if any differently.

Ok - I am a HUGE fan of the Maia Bra 2011. I have lost a lot of weight and this is still my go-to-bra. I went from a 38DD to a 36C and Maia as been with me through the journey. Was not a fan of the color selection but finding the best support is the bottom line when you are doing hard impact workouts and running. The new 2013 Maia version is nice, however I cant stand the seams. Moving Comfort added seams on the lower Front and side. Well they show through my shirt. The Old Maia was smooth, no seams... Every shirt I put on, tight fitted shows all the seams with the 2013 version and that is not what I want. I find on other Moving Comfort Bras, they have the seems as well. I just purchased several of the Old Version in my size as they are on sale. I hope they last a long, long time.

        Comments about Maia:

        I've been wearing the Maia for years - it is by far the best sports bra I've found for a large bust (I wear a 36DDD). This iteration of the bra had some great changes - MC made it look more stylish, which is usually hard for larger bras. The only thing I noticed that I don't like is the straps seem to be too short - I have them let out as far as they go (which I never do with my older Maias) and they are still digging into my shoulders. Overall it's still a great bra and I would buy it again.

              Comments about Maia:

              This bra didn't offer much support and felt and looked like what I would imagine your grandmother's Triple G bra might be like. It was far too much coverage and the bra couldn't be worn under a basic gym top without being exposed at many points.

                I wear one of these bras every day. My size is 32 or 34 D (depending on my weight). I do a lot of work outside and find the fit, comfort and support of the Maia can't be beat. The Maia gets more use than my regular bras. I own at least 10 of them. I'm really happy to see them coming in more colors now.....I have quite a few of the white, black and beige.....love the new colors.

                I have purchased the Maia bra for many years and this new and improved version is the WORST construction of this bra ever. I have purchased probably 12-15 of these bras over the years and the original construction has been superior to this current style in quality materials and fit. I purchased one for my mother in her normal size 38D and one for me in my normal size 40D and BOTH were too tight and felt like an ACE bandage...I had to go up a size for both of us in order to get a comfortable fit. Please bring back the original version...these are awful.

                  Generous coverage in an underwire style that's built as two bras in one—a well-rounded option for full-cupped women.

                  • Molded cups maintain shape and provide light modesty
                  • Back-adjustable, gel-padded straps improve fit and enhance comfort
                  • Underwire supports each breast individually
                  • Adjustable, soft-padded back closure for proper fit and support

                  • Medium to high impact level

                  *Tip: A full bust fills out this bra’s cup construction best. Ideal for women who are especially full breasted at the top and sides.
