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!

Do Not Buy- Chafing Nightmare!!!

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.

My favorite sports bra

Comments about Urban X-Over C/D:

The Urban X-Over is by far my favorite sports bra. I own 6 of them. They are cute enough to wear on their own, but provide enough shape that you don't look like a boy (or worse, uniboob) with a shirt on. I am a 32D and buy smalls in this style and it provides enough support for me that I feel comfortable when running or doing double unders. Because of the padding, it does hold on to moisture if you get really sweaty, but I only notice that if I take it off and try to put it back on before it dries (I have been wearing these bras since they came out and literally only noticed this last month when I decided to go tanning for my wedding after a workout). I love this bra and will continue to purchase them as my old ones wear out.

No Chaffe Adjustments, with "Busty" look

Comments about Urban X-Over C/D:

I'm a distance runner and I do track workouts. I bought this bra because it's a racerback style (a 100% must in the running world), and the adjustments are located in the back - I was finding that the bras where it was adjustable in the front were chaffing my collar bone. Both of these features were great. What I wasn't expecting, is that this bra is not "sporty" looking. It makes me look very "busty". If you like this, then this bra is fine for you. But as an athlete, I don't want cleavage, or to accentuate my chest "shape", etc. I want something that looks sporty, and this doesn't fit the bill.

    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!

        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.

              Comments about Urban X-Over C/D:

              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.
