Would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the sizing. Fortunately, I read all the customer comments before ordering: the overwhelming consensus was that it runs a size small. Thus, I ordered M/L--not what I usually wear! at 108-110 lbs, I'm a petite 34B--and it was just right. There's a bit more fabric in the bust itself than I need (no surprise, since I'm not really M/L), but the compression is excellent. (If you shun a "flat-chested" look, this may not be the bra for you.) For me, comfort is key. This fits like a glove in the shoulders, underarms and back, doesn't shift while I run (no chafing), and its seamlessness means no obnoxious "shelf" under the bust, and no "cutting edge" on the straps. Fabric is great. So, I'm happy. Just glad I sized up!

I ordered the product and it came in within a reasonable amount of time. I was very excited to try it on and I could only get my head and one arm through. I ordered an extra large because I saw the sizing ran small, but this was ridiculous. I'm a size 38b on a size 14-16 frame. This should have fit. Honestly, it simply is another example of how althletic wear companies cater to stick thin women (no offense intended). I understand that sports bras are supposed to be a little tight to keep the girls from going every which way, but this was just silly. So the next day I mailed the product back; it has been 2 weeks and my account still hasn't been credited for the return. Not happy and very disappointed because I really wanted to like this product. Since I couldn't even fit in the bra, I can't say anything regarding support or wicking ability. I can say that the texture of the fabric itself was super soft and might have been comfortable had I been able to fit in it.

Disappointing fit

    Comments about Serena:

    Was excited that this bra might be a good replacement for Moving Comfort's discontinued Sera 2 bra, which I have been wearing as a running bra for years. Sadly, this is not a great replacement. The colors are great, but the similarities end there. If you order, order one size up. I tried both my "old" size and the larger size, and the bottom band was way too constricting in both sizes. Have had to send both sizes back, and my hunt for a good replacement bra for running continues.

      Comments about Serena:

      This is a very comfortable bra, washes well and performs well. It runs very small around the ribcage; I've never worn anything larger than a medium in any top, but had to order a L/XL because the M/L was way too tight around my ribs. I'm a 36A, but the L/XL works well.

        Comments about Serena:

        I like wearing these "low impact" bras like this one around the house, to yoga, on a walk etc. The band around the chest is too tight and the bust is too loose. I had an earlier version of this and got the L/XL (usually I am a medium/36C top). After a while of wearing i feel like my lungs aren't fully expanding... and I need to take it off.

        I love the color and the fabric.

              Comments about Serena:

              I'm 5'2", 114 lbs and wear a 32B or C. I have two of these that I've been using for literally every workout for the past year at least, and I LOVE them. I originally bought them in M/L, and that has worked fine up until now (I was a 32C and 118 lbs for most of last year). Either because I've lost weight or the fabric has stretched or both, but I think I need to size down to a S/M.
              They are extremely comfortable (no irritating metal or plastic pieces to adjust!), and as a short person I was pleasantly surprised that the straps are just right -- not too long! They provide plenty of support for long runs.

                    I bought this when Champion stopped making its seamless running bra since it was the closest thing I could find. It is a good replacement.
                    I'm very flat-chested, but have a big rib-cage (big lats, like a swimmer's build). Roughly 38A. I bought the L/XL, and it fits well.
                    I took my 1st run in it today and it was comfortable, lightweight, provided good support (keeping in mind I'm very small on top). The stitching is contoured in a very purposeful way to give support without being bulky. I'm buying several more.

                        Despite using your on line fit guides, this sport bra was exceedingly tight. Difficulty breathing is NOT part of my daily routine.
