I'm 5'2, 106, 34D, short torso. All my sports bras were 5-6 yrs old, definitely beyond their use, so I decided to try several MC styles in 34D or Medium: Luna, Juno, Jubralee, Fiona, Rebound Racer, Urban Xover and Vero. Most of these have favorable reviews. Here are my opinions. Luna was definitely out - cups did not fit well & overall it felt like a regular bra not a sports bra. I don't need another day bra.Juno had good support, almost no movement, but the sides were too high & chafed my arms. I knew Juno would be difficult to get on/off from other reviews but once on, it felt & looked like a medieval instrument of torture, even moreso on my petite frame and short torso. Couldn't wait to extricate myself. Fiona was really disappointing - it's been the flagship bra for a long time and it looks old-school. The support seemed minimal, fabric thin, straps too bulky & overall just not attractive. Jubralee was definitely a step up from Fiona & the best of these 4 that have the wide, 3-hook back strap, which is a pain & unattractive, probably because of my small frame. Jubralee had the most support, little movement, the sides were lower & didn't chafe, the straps are much thinner, softer & smoother, and it's comfortable. The only complaint is all the excess fabric on the inside of the cups, which is just weird. Other reviewers commented on the same. Maybe I need to try a C cup. It's a possible keeper but I wish it had cups like Juno & a smaller back strap. The Rebound Racer is a little hard to get on but fits much better than Juno for a racing style. Back strap is thinner, very good support/little movement, lower sides/no chafing. The straps seem a little bulky but overall this is a keeper. My absolute favorites are the Urban Xover and Vero. Both have thin straps, thin back straps, great support, no chafing, very little movement, great colors and a more modern style/feel. Plus Vero has convertible straps so you can make it a racer if you want. It's been a long time since I've worn a racer back but Xover is so comfortable! Love these 2 and will order more colors!

I bought two of these bras at a local running store in October 2012- the black with pink (sale color) and a turquoise color not shown here. I liked that they had padded cups to prevent nipple show- through in cold weather, and they were much easier to put on than the Juno. Within two days of wearing them to run, I had terrible chafing under both arms. I could not return them to the store because I had worn them. I spent so much on them (not on sale at the time) that I continued to keep wearing them because I could not afford to spend any more money on new sports bras. I tried using several different anti- chafing products on the area and yet the chafing still continued to get worse. I am a half marathon runner, but I was starting to feel chafing about a mile in to each run even with anti- chafe products. I had ugly, huge, red, flaky welts under each arm from running in these bras. It was hard to shave my underarms or put on deodorant because of these welts. I even considered seeing a dermatologist about them.
Fast forward to February 2013. A Moving Comfort rep came to my local running store for a special event which including fittings. I showed her what had happened to me and she explained that this bra is not for running, it's for the gym. She fitted me in the Endurance Racer which works much better for me. The skin has healed on its own and and my underarms are happy again.

Comments about Urban X-Over C/D:

I am 4'11 and wear a 32DD. Based on all the reviews I read I decided to go with the medium. I really like this bra but I wish the band was a bit tighter. It is a little loose on me so I feel like I don't get all the support I should get from this bra. I adjusted the straps which helped and the cups contain the girls but barely. I think this bra would be ok to wear to the gym but I definitely wouldn't run in it. I will be sticking with my Rebound Racer on my running days. Other than that, the bra is really comfortable and I had a pretty easy time getting it on and off.

    Comments about Urban X-Over C/D:

    Ordered the Urban X-Over for my girlfriend after visiting a specialty running store that was out of her size. She tried a size smaller (A/B instead of C/D) and reported that the garment might fit better if it were one size larger. After receiving the X-Over and a debut at a cross-fit boot camp, she raved about it's comfort and how it kept her "girls" in place! "They aren't going anywhere!" she proclaimed. She also reflected how the X was snug, but comfortably so; "everything" moved together as if in synch. The first day she had it, she wanted to wear it for a trial fit, and ended up wearing it all day because she forgot it was there!

      Comments about Urban X-Over C/D:

      The search is over for the PERFECT sports bra! I love these so much I now have 8 of them. I wear them running, hiking, weight lifting, snowboarding, cycling, while doing yard work, and even out and about sometimes. I'm a 28D and the XS fits perfectly. The molded cups give shape (no uniboob!) and enough support for any of my activities - all without fear of headlights! My one very minor complaint is that I wish they would offer plain black every season instead of plain white - I'm not a huge fan of all the bright, contrasting colors and white gets too dirty/dingy.

            I am always looking for bras that can be multipurpose: I can wear them for running, and I can wear them under street clothes and still have some shape. This bra is one that works for both. The crossover back ensures that the straps stay up, but also makes it much easier to get into than those with a regular racerback.

                Overall this is a great product. It didn't get 5 stars only because the straps are just slightly scratchy.

                  I love this bra, I always do a lot a research before buying new sports bras and this is one of the best that I have found. I wear this bra for anything high intensity. running, plyo., kickboxing. I love the way this bra fits and makes me look when its one. I am a 32 D (small D tho) and the C/D bra fits great! I will be ordering more!! the clips in the back help make it easy on easy off.

                      This bra gives a great shape (no uniboob) & great support -- I own the 'Charity' bra & thought this one wasn't as moisture-wicking but hey if you're not sweating you're not working out right ;) I like that the straps are adjustable so you can snug it up

                      5 stars for great quality, comfort, support and style. 3 stars for me, personally, because it does not work well on my body.

                      I bought this bra based on other women reporting it performs well for road cycling. Here in Portland, OR a lot of our streets are rough and broken, which makes cycling a high impact sport (due to all the jostling) rather than a low-medium impact and that is why I bought this bra. It is comfortable, there is no "wear fatigue" (as I call it -- where after wearing it for many hours it starts to become uncomfortable and you feel desperate to get out of it; causes pain after it's off). This bra offers incredible support and there is absolutely ZERO bounce.

                      My only two complaints are this: As a 32D (think Lady Gaga in her Born This Way music video) the way this specific bra lifts my girls, it makes me look like I am suffering from a really horrible breast augmentation. The girls sit unnaturally high on my chest (that "under the chin" look) and it causes the most unflattering look when I'm wearing this bra under any top, but especially my cycling jerseys. I'm a thin, lanky woman with a moderately sized bust (again, not very big!) and this bra makes me look quite awful.

                      My second and final complaint is that this bra digs into the meat of my shoulder muscles just above the collar bones and by the time I get it off, there's red chaff marks, but they do fade in a couple hours and there is no blistering or raw skin.

                      Ultimately, I believe the Urban X-over just doesn't work for my specific anatomy. I DO recommend this bra to all ladies out there doing high impact sports, including cycling. It just didn't work for me and there might be others out there with my same experience.

                      Comments about Urban X-Over C/D:

                      This bra is very supportive and gives the ladies a great shape. It was a little strange getting into it the first few times but once it's on you are ready for the day! I love wearing this bra running and I often wear it while working in the yard. The one major flaw is the seams on the front cups. I was wearing this bra under a regular cotton tshirt and the "bra lines" were horrible. I don't care so much when I'm running but this bra fits so well and makes my breasts look nice and perky that I want to wear it when I run errands and to work. I wear a 36D at VS and the large fits me perfect.
