Being a male and self-conscience with having gynecaumastia this is not something I like people to know. Many years back I was referred to trying sports bras as a solution. I was hesitant at first,but actually became comfortable with the issue. Since then I began to show a lot of interest in sportsbras and the Vixen is one of my favorites. Especially the back racerback styling.

I agree with the other consumer that the straps left horrible sores where the seams are at the top of shoulders. Whether I ran 3 miles or 10, the straps were unbearable. So, I only wear this bra while riding my bike. There is no way I can wear it to run in which was my purpose for purchasing...support. Previously I was very happy with the "apparently discontinued" style. Glad I bought 2 extras of the old style at a marathon expo.

Does not fit a 34D

By shrista

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Nice Bra Except Sizing

Cons

  • Sizes Not True

Best Uses

  • Cold Weather

Comments about Vixen C/D:

The medium which claims to fit a 34C/D or 36C does not really fit a 34D. That is my size, and while teh band width is alright for me, the cups are simly too small.

    Comments about Vixen C/D:

    I have searched for a long time for a sports bra that does everything I need. This one is it! I am currently training for a full marathon and I am so happy that I found this bra when I did. It supports in the front, keeping everything in place. There is no spillage on the sides or in the back. The band is nice and snug, but does give movement when needed. It is difficult to get off over the head but that is okay since the band is tight and keeps everything tucked in. If it were easy to get off, the girls would fall out the bottom of the bra. I have just purchased my second Vixen!

      I love this bra because it holds everything in place, and it looks fabulous on! It keeps the girls in front, not squishing them out to the sides. First sports bra I have found that works so well!

      Comments about Vixen C/D:

      I have 3 of these bras, I love the fit and it holds everything in place (including the dreaded headlights). I have had 0 issues with chaffing and in the Louisiana summer heat this is a plus. I also run trail mostly and every once in a while you get wet, no issues (even when bringing home a little extra swamp mud in the bra). The shoulder straps are extremely comfortable and one of the few bras that seems to just fit my narrow shoulders right. My only complaint is that you have to be a contortionist to get out of this thing alone! Being a petite person with a D cup, you want the girls to stay in place. Typically this is where the issues lie, you have to go for a smaller band size so that this is not loose, but then getting that over the girls is a serious challenge, particularity after a LONG, HOT, Louisiana humidity run. I can only wear this bra if I know my husband will be around to assist in the removal.

      Comments about Vixen C/D:

      I really like this bra. Looks good, feels good, great support. The only problem is that it doesn't have much stretch so it's difficult to take off. I feel like I have to dislocate my shoulder to get it off.

      I love this bra! I wear it for everything from working to working out. I have a spine condition and this is the only bra that doesnt give me shoulder cramps. I can wear this all day. I do have to have my significant other take it off for me, which is a hassle, but worth it is worth the hassle to stop my chronic back pain. This bra has literally changed my life.

          I'm a long distance runner and wear 38D bra. This is my 6th Vixen C/D Bra. I would Highly recommend this to women runners with D cup size. Excellent fitting.
          I wish this bra had a small pocket or opening like Maia has to stash in keys or Id.

            I was looking for a new sports bra for cycling, yoga and kayaking. I specifically wanted one with good support and modesty (no show thru) this bra had all those qualities and more - great color selection in my size as well. Great value.

            I really enjoy wearing this bra when on the tennis courts. It's lightweight and moves with my body. It holds in the "headlights." It fits so well, it's sometimes difficult to remove but this is a minor inconvenience.
