I first bought this brand from a specialty store with a fitting - approx 4 years ago. I bought 2 of this model. Washed them gently, hung to dry. About 2 months ago stitches started fraying & then last week, within days of each other, the underwire gave up...... So! Time to go through the grueling process to find another good fitting bra Just on a whim, I looked up the model number & here it is on Zappos. This must be one of the basic bras in this line to be able to find it years later (are you listening other lingerie manufacturers?) You won't be disappointed. High quality & comfort. Well recommended.

I hated this bra, and I really wanted it to work for me. I got it in a 34B and a 34C. My breasts looked distorted, pointy and unsupported. I was so sorry because I really LOVE the wireless sports bras, and the Rosa Faia Padded Softcup bra (which was not available in my size at the time I needed a new bra). I have 9 Anita bras because they have the most support without the underwires. I was hopeful with this bra because the others come up so high in the middle, that it is difficult to wear v-necked shirts or blouses. I will say that this is a great brand, but really the wrong bra.

I liked the look and feel of this bra, but unfortunately it was just too difficult to get in and out of. (Has to go over the head.) I could see that getting really annoying really quickly, so I returned it. It seemed to run true to size in the band, and maybe a half size small in the cup.

There's no Holy Grail in a sports bra that I've found yet but this one is pretty good for most low to medium impact activities for the well endowed. I wouldn't be able to wear this while running and feel supported so it gets minus one star for not being good for high impact. I'm able to wear it at home for yoga, Zumba, low impact activities like weight lifting/strength training, walking on treadmill and bike-but again, for jogging or anything that requires jumping (Cross fit, jumping jacks, burpees, etc) I would definitely need something more supportive. Pros: it dried quickly after a wash and is very comfortable. Cons: I'm not a fan of the limited color selection. It stands out in the drawer from anything else but would like in white to wear under lighter colors - if I ever wore it outdoors. I'm currently nursing and I wear a 38F in Freya-so none of my old beloved sports bras fit. I usually wear a 32F when not pregnant or nursing so I've been able to wear Moving Comfort's Maia (which has underwire and is lined) in the past I usually prefer a bra with underwire and a bit of lining so there's no "headlights" visible.

Very comfortable, and helps to keep me cool! I use it for tennis, so need good support for the running and twisting, and complete freedom of shoulder movement. The bra cannot have an underwire, so my ribs don't get poked every time I hit the ball. Plus, because the temps can get very hot out on the court, the bra needs to be lightweight and expose enough skin on my chest and back to help air circulation. The larger, more padded bras cover most of my chest and create a heat layer. And, the bra has a hook closure in back, so I both can adjust the tension as needed and don't wrench my shoulders when trying to peel it off afterward over hot, sticky skin. This sports bra meets all of these criteria, and it's so comfortable. I gave it four stars for style because it would help very much to have it available in neutral colors as well, so it's not visible under lighter weight tops.

This bra has the right configuration to work well. I am satisfied with it, for the most part, but the straps do not stay in place even after adjusting. It seems to be well-made and I'm sure I will wear it to work out...but would love a sports bra that actually fits in every way. Have not found that yet.

Although this bra was supportive, comfortable, and well made, I did not like the style. It is more attractive in the picture than it is in person. It gave me the unattractive retro "pointed" look. The cups were also so thin that my nipples could clearly be seen through my t shirt. The cup size runs a little small. Band size was true to size.

Okay bra. Seamed cup with no padding, though comfortable to wear, especially on the shoulders. Not too appealing, however. Could be an everyday bra for me if they lose the cup seams and add a little padding.

I admit I was hesitant to order any undergarment sight unseen, particularly a brand I've never used and at what (to me) was a precious price. This purchase was not only my first experience with Zappos, it was my first experience with this brand of clothing. I am quite satisfied with both. The bra fits comfortably, and is clearly a well-made product. I like the wider straps, and they stay put all day - without leaving dents in my shoulders! At my age (56) style and frills are not nearly as important as other features, and this simple bra suits my needs just fine. My one complaint, if complaint you can call it, is that the (cup) fabric is thin. Long ago I nursed both my babies, so my nipples are always...noticeable. This is especially true when wearing this bra, but is not a "deal-breaker." The fit & construction are compensation enough.

Awesome wireless bra. Best one I've been able to find. Comfortable. It doesn't pucker out on the side bands, as some do. I thought sizing was right on.

Anita Rosa Faia Style 5493 is the most comfortable and supportive bra that I have worn in 40 years of bra wearing! Do not let the slender model 's photo confuse you: this is a bra for busty women, too. This is the only bra that I can wear all day in comfort and not need to take off the minute I get home. Amazing for a 44D! The secret of this bra is a silky, very supportive fabric that forms the cups. At first, the bra feels almost too tight, then slightly stretches to mold to your body. With wear, weight gain, washing technique/amount the bra will continue to stretch somewhat, depending on your variables. I rotate several of these bras at a time and have had a perfect fit for about three years of everyday use. I also am able to retain some stretch by drying the bra in a mesh lingerie bag in the dryer. After three years the bras are still wearable, they just do not have that very firm uplift that is needed under some fabrics , like knits. I find that the amazing personalized fit and comfort is worth the price of buying new #5493's and "breaking them in" when I need a firmer fit. I am delighted to find that Zappos is carrying this bra! Anita Rosa Faia bras used to be very hard to find in the U.S. as they are made in Germany. I look forward to the ease of shopping online with Zappos and am hoping they keep stocking a full size and color range of this wonderful bra!

This is the very best sports bra I have ever owned, and I have tried dozens. It also comes in a really cool black/grey combination, which you will want to wear on a hot day with shorts, it looks that good. As for support, it has a great deal of it; I am 32D and that size fits perfectly, It starts out a little tight, but after a few wears, it seems almost to mold to your body. I already have 3 of this stye and cannot recommend it more highly. Great sports bra!

Beautiful bra with no lining. I have fuller breasts and this fit perfectly, without smashing them together. Plenty of support and full coverage.

This is the best sports bra I've ever owned. It's got maximum support and the cups aren't stretchy at all which i prefer. It does start a bit itchy (I'm not sure why) but it goes away after wearing it a couple of times. It also comes in larger sizes which is a huge plus since I wear a 38G (this has European sizing so I ordered a 38F, so be careful with that). I love it so much I purchased 2!

Great bra and great fit. I bought the 38E and it fit great and held me in. I was skeptical at first because I usually wear a 38DD so I didn't think the bra would fit. This is one of my favorites and they dry quick. I will be purchasing more.

This bra is so comfortable. I had shoulder surgery recently and I needed a wider strap and this one is perfect. I wear a 36G and it fits perfectly.

Oh, frick and frack, this is a good one. I love this bra. I tried it on and could not believe it - a 40E (i.e., 40DD) soft cup bra that is light, breathable, supportive, and gives me an excellent shape? Whoa. I even tried a little run to see how steady things would be should I go that route. And the girls stood nearly still! This is seriously a winner. A keeper. A rock star. Give it a try, and if the first size you choose does not work for you, try, try again! I am usually a 38DDD, but I went with a 40DD just because I had a hunch that the band might run small. I do not know if it does, really, but the 40DD works beautifully - it is a smidge tight on the last clasp (the tightest one, that is), and the cups are perfect. So, I ordered four more. Goodbye, Enell.

This bra is the most comfortable and best-fitting bra that I have tried. I wear it as an every-day bra, not just for exercise. The fabric does not trap perspiration and the bra has been very easy to wear during this hot summer. The workmanship and materials used to make this bra is superior to what is found in most common brands. The bra gives excellent coverage and support without wires. Plus the bottom band doesn't roll up. That can be very annoying. When I put this bra on, it stays in place and I don't "feel" it on. I highly recommend this bra because of its excellent quality and fit.

This is the most beautiful fit in a bra I have had in a long time. I always order different sizes of the same bra to get the best fit - this one fit with the larger cup. Shoulder straps are so comfy. Looks fabulous under T-shirt.

This has been my sports bra for over a year now. The cup material is something I'd never seen before, but it does seem to wick away moisture very well during hot summer golf rounds. The mesh back is great too, the only place now that gets moist is the front band and I've never had a bra that didn't when exercising for hours in the hot sun. I like that the front of the bra is low enough that it doesn't peek out from my golf polos, although I have to be careful when wearing a lower cut tank top.
