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.

    Comments about Vixen C/D:

    Bought this on sale. It's a bit pricey at regular price but on sale I'll buy these all day. I'm very small (under 5 feet and under 100 pounds) and I found the small fit well. My torso is small so the length is a bit annoying if I use my heart rate monitor. I have to stuff it into the bra because the bra sit so low on my rib cage the heart rate monitor strap sits right were the band of the bra is. All that combined is a bit snug. I like the fit of the bra but I'd say this may not be an awesome bra for hot summer runs. I feel it's a bit warm with all the padding.

        I decided to try a few new bras in my last order, but Vixen didn't work out. It was definitely not a bra I could do any high-impact work in, and it wasn't flattering. It felt loose and light, like something I might sleep in.

          Comments about Vixen C/D:

          I bought a medium at a store and band and cup size fit very well but the straps dug into my shoulders. In this online order, I got a large, and the straps feel comfortable on my shoulders but the band and cup size are too big. Also, I have a lot of trouble getting both bras off, a first for my sports bras, and I'm fairly flexible.

            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.

              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!

                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.

                A dependable v-neck pullover that's loved for her uncompromising support and flattering shape.

                •Moderate-contoured seam-free cups
                • Contoured cups enhance shape, support, and provide complete modesty

                Fabric

                Body: DriLayer® Cool 82% polyester / 18% spandex & Drilayer® Powermesh
                Cups: DriLayer® Buzz 50% S.Café™ polyester / 50% polyester

                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.
