Valmont Zip Front Sports Bra
excellent fit & function
Purchased this to wear under my swimsuit - to offer more support and modesty. (take water aerobics and needed to prevent wardrobe malfunctions)
This is an EXCELLENT fix - great comfort, awesome support, easy on / off when wet . . . . only draw-back . . . the clorine affected the Black . . . so more brown now after 6 mo daily use.
SOLUTION . . . bought a new one.
Ultimately might try the white or grey - but prefer black for now.

If the straps could be adjusted, it might work for me. But, between the too large band and the low cut front, it gives me almost no support and I don't see myself wearing it much. I thought I could shrink it in the washer and dryer but it didn't work.

Great sports bra - does run a bit large
This is a great sports bra, exactly what I was looking for! I wear a 44C in JMS style 1960 so I ordered the 44B/C in this - I wish it ran a little smaller, as I'd like a little more "support" since I'm just starting a couch to 5k program. As a sports bra, it's very comfy. The zipper is on the large side - big plastic teeth - so I wouldn't wear this under my everyday clothing, but it will do for my new running adventure. I've (happily!) dropped about 16 pounds in the last month already so I'm sure I'll have to order the next size down very soon... ;-)

Very Comfy Bra!
I purchased 2 of these Zip front bras and I LOVE them! They are comfy for all day wear and even comfy enough to sleep in! They provide adequate support and are so easy to get on and off plus I love the mesh insert in the back - keeps me cool in South Florida heat!
The bra does run a bit big - I usually wear a 44 D/DD but I wear a 42 D/DD in this style.
They also wash like a dream!
I also wanted to address an issue some other reviewers mentioned - I wear this bra around the house/while cleaning and other household chores and even to sleep in and I have NEVER had the zipper open on me or even slide down at all!
I highly recommend this bra and will be back to buy more when needed (plus JMS has GREAT prices and excellent sales!)
