I paid $40+ for a bra and used Body Glide. Thought I did everything right. But notice the chafing. The little dot pattern is identical. I also have triangular lines from the inner padding. I only wore it 10.25 miles. So painful.

    Comments about Vixen A/B:

    Second time I've tried this bra, really wanted to like it. No luck. M is too tight for 34-35. The shoulder seam is not finished well and chafes. Still looking.

        I read the reviews which many of them said to order up a size, so I did. I ordered a large , I usually wear a medium. It's a great fit, very comfortable. It does wick moisture. I work outside every day and it doesn't feel warm like some sports bras do. I highly recommend this bra!

            I wear the Vixen A/B for 8 to 15 mile runs. It stays in place an supportive the whole time...no chafing around the band or straps. Cups provide coverage and again no untoward friction. It's good at wicking sweat. I don't know how it will do in outdoor runs in the summer. I wish it had hook and eye clasps in the back like the C/D style. It's wicking capabilites work against it when it comes to to take it off. I feel like I'm going to rip a seam.

              the proble with this bra is that none of the sizes really fit a 34D. The M/M option does not really do it. You need to work in more sizing options. If it there were, this would be my favorite.

                Comments about Vixen A/B:

                I am an avid runner with a swimmer's shoulders/back. I've tried just about every sports bra out there, and I've had difficulty finding one that doesn't make me look and feel like I'm oozing out of the bra -- sort of like an upper body muffin top (even though I have a very muscular body). When I discovered this bra at my local running store, I was SO excited. While I usually wear a medium (I am a 36B), the large Vixen fit me perfectly. They are extremely comfortable during my 20 mile runs, but I have no problems wearing them to less bouncy activities like yoga.

                I have experienced the dot-shaped chafing that other reviewers have mentioned, but this has mostly been the case during 10+ mile runs when I neglected to wear Body Glide, and more often with my older Vixens which have become a bit stretched out (evidently, you're supposed to throw out sports bras after six months to a year...I wear mine for years). I don't think you can avoid chafing with most bras out there, and I haven't found anything more comfortable, so I'm going to stick with my Vixens.

                      I am a half marathon runner. I came across this sport bra at my local running store and love it! I run half marathons with no chafing or discomfort. This bra offers the perfect amount of support without being over restrictive. I did have to order a size up because the Small was too hard to take off.

                        One of the best sports bra I have ever worn. It is very stylish while also being comfortable, allowing free movement and providing excellent support. I am 5'4", 130lbs, 34B with an athletic build and the M fits perfectly. I have used it for running, yoga, insanity, p90x and yard work and it stays comfortable while keeping the girls in place. It is a bit difficult to take off if you are really sweaty, but well worth it.

                          Care instructions • Wash in cold water every 1 - 3 wears to remove sweat, dirt, and bacteria which break down the fabric
                          • Fasten hooks and throw in washing machine or, better, toss it in a lingerie bag first. Or, best, hand wash.
                          • Hang dry or tumble dry low. Dryers wear down fabric and moisture-management properties.
                          • Never use dryer sheets or fabric softeners. They coat the fabric and keep it from breathing.
                          • Replace your sports bra every 6 - 12 months, depending on how often you wear it.
