Enell Maximum Control Front-Close Wire-Free Sports Bra
great Sport Bra
I have been buying these sport bras for 17 years. (Ever since I ran a marathon at age 44.) I am an endurance horseback rider, hiker, and I ride my mountain bike, the Enell bras are comfortable but very supportive. Try riding horseback at a trot for 25 to 50 miles. . . .having no bounce is wonderful. My only complaint is that they NEVER go on sale. Believe I watch. I willl be 61 this month but I still need the support for my activities. My first endurance ride this year will be May 18. I ride COMFORTABLY. DJ

I have a large bust, and finding the right sports bra to wear when I'm working out has always been a nightmare. This bra is perfect for running and for high intensity exercising! My breasts don't move one iota! It may feel a little uncomfortable the first time you put it on, but I was used to the tight fit after the first use. Definitely worth the money.

This is a great bra for exercising. I've never found anything that could hold "the girls" properly while I jog or do any exercise that jumps. This one does it! Holy heck is it tight around the midsection though. I'm guessing thats why it works.
I gave it 4 stars because the top of the bra bunches a little and makes this awful looking line under the shirt. It's a little embarrassing looking. But, I guess I'll endure to get in a comfortable workout.

Needed this after starting Radiation
I'm 45 and had a lumpectomy last year, but it wasn't until after starting radiation that I started to have lymphodema swelling throughout my arm, breast, and torso. Before my breast cancer I was a 34F or 36DDD depending on the company. I really didn't know what size I would be now because I haven't purchased a good bra since being diagnosed last May. All the medical bras that insurance would pay for were not available in a size that fit me. So I had to start hunting on my own. My husband's co-worker told him about this bra. She uses it for exercise and is a small framed full busted gal.
I still measured 34" around the ribcage, but the size 2 fit too tight and I knew it would be too painful if I kept it. I ordered a size 3 and it fit perfect! It is snug, but not tight.
I've often fallen asleep in it with no problem. If I'm SITTING for a LONG TIME (3-4 hours doing paperwork) it will dig into my stomach, since it is a longer line bra compared to a typical bra, so I undo the bottom 2-3 clasps. Problem fixed! I do not lose support or feel that I'm falling out the bottom. I've learned to undo the claps through my clothes so it's not a big deal. If I would've ordered a size 4 it would be too big around the ribcage and lose all support.
I've worn underwire bras all my life. This is my first no wire bra. It gives me excellent support. My girls are going nowhere. I like the fuller coverage across the back because of my lymphatic swelling involving my tors0. It does not cut into me and the bra stays put while I move. I am very active. I dance, run, do yoga, and have to keep up with young children while providing therapy. I'm still in chemo and have insane hot flashes. With this bra I don't feel bathed in sweat and the girls stay comfortable. This was an unexpected find.
My lymphodema therapist will be writing me a letter of medical necessity so I can file it with insurance to see if I can be reimbursed. Even if worst case scenario, it is not paid for, I will be ordering more because it will be a few years before I will be allowed to wear underwire bras again.
Thank you Enell! The ladies at Bare Necessities were awesome and patient while they tried to help me figure out sizing because I could easily be a 2 or 3. Thank you!!
