Bottom line

Versatile and supportive, the Moving Comfort Fiona is equally at home in the yoga studio or on the treadmill, reviewers say. Beloved for its cushioned, adjustable straps and closure, the Fiona keeps bounce to a minimum with its compression and lightly molded, seamless cups. But some reviewers find the band or straps irritating, and others say the bra doesn't dim headlights enough for solo wear.

Comfort

Velcro, chest band irritate some. Made of 88 percent DriLayer polyester and 12 percent Spandex, the Moving Comfort Fiona offers solid moisture-wicking, reviewers say. Seam-free cups reduce the potential for chafing, and few reviewers report problems on that front. The wide straps do not cross or meet in the back as on many sports bras, but are easily adjustable with Velcro closures in the front. A handful of women say the Velcro irritates their skin, however. Some complain the wide chest band can start to twist and curl uncomfortably. The hook-and-eye closure on the back of the bra means wearers don't have to struggle to pull the bra on overhead, which many women appreciate.

Support

High-impact support for D cups and below. The Moving Comfort Fiona combines compression and encapsulation support. The bra is a favorite for high-impact workouts, including running, aerobics and cross-training. An expert notes that the adjustable straps allow wearers to tighten or loosen the bra as needed, customizing support for every activity. Moving Comfort recommends the Fiona for B to DD cups, and most users agree that it minimizes bounce for large busts. However, some DD-cup reviewers recommend bras with deeper cups to better support each breast. Offered in 29 sizes from 30 B to 44 DD, the Fiona makes it easy to find a comfortable, supportive fit.

Style

Nipple coverage may be an issue. The Moving Comfort Fiona has a slightly scooped neckline and an open back. Reviewers are divided on the style -- some find it attractive, while others say it's a bit utilitarian-looking, especially compared to bras featuring racerbacks, keyholes and the like. Several women warn that the slightly molded cups don't provide enough coverage to keep their nipples from showing, making the Fiona a less than ideal option for going shirtless. Moving Comfort offers about a half-dozen vibrant colors on its website, but there are several more color options elsewhere on the web, including two-tone designs with contrasting straps or bands.
