Under Armour HeatGear Endure

Pros
  • Convenient front zipper
  • Excellent support
  • Modesty padding
  • Wicks well
Cons
  • Zipper is difficult to use, can come undone
  • Zipper sometimes arrives broken
  • Not for smaller cup sizes

Most testers -- in both expert and customer reviews -- are very happy with the Under Armour Endure's comfort and support. As long as you're willing to ignore the zipper problems that sometimes plague the bra, it garners expert recommendations from a Ph.D researcher and multiple groups of reviewers, and mostly positive feedback from users, making it a high-scoring runner up to the best-reviewed Moving Comfort Fiona (Est. $45) for women with a C/D-cup breast size. The Endure also earns a number of recommendations from women with D+-cup breasts, and its underwire-free design is a good alternative to the (also underwire-free) Enell Sports Bra (Est. $65).

We found expert commentary on the Under Armour Endure in Shape, O, The Oprah Magazine, and Prevention. These reviews are generally brief and don't mention any downsides to the Endure -- or any of the other bras evaluated -- so we turn to user reviews for a more candid assessment. Even though the Endure doesn't enjoy the wild popularity of the Moving Comfort Fiona, we still found dozens of user reviews for it at a couple of well-known retailers.

Twenty women of various sizes test an undisclosed number of sports bras and select their seven favorites. The Under Armour Endure is recommended for women with D cups or larger. High points include its convenient front zipper, padding, shape and wicking capabilities, although it's listed for medium- to low-impact activities.

4. DicksSportingGoods.com

The Under Armour Endure is listed several times on the Dick's Sporting Goods retail website, and the one with the most reviews gets a 4.2-star average rating from about 65 users. While most women absolutely love their Endure bra, it receives several very low ratings for a variety of zipper problems.

5. Sports Authority

Nearly 30 reviewers weigh in on the Under Armour Endure sports bra, giving it a 4.5-star average rating. Most say it runs true to size, but a substantial number -- 25 percent -- say it runs small. They also call it comfortable and supportive for high-impact exercise, but say it can be hard to get on and off despite the front-zip closure.
