Like wearing nothing

This is a very comfortable bra. Have B/C uneven breasts and it fits well. Could wear for impact activities but probably wouldn't keep breasts unmovable. I've ordered another.Pros: Great design, Great value
Super Comfy, Great Patterns
July 03, 2010
Incredibly comfortable, and very cute (especially if you get the matching bikini). The set doubles as a swim suit on hikes without looking too much like underwear. It's easy to forget the bra is there - I've even slept in it when it's been too hot for clothes. As another reviewer pointed out, it does flatten your chest - it's a compression style bra - so of course there's some flattening (if you want a perky looking chest, then you need underwire). I still think it's flattering under tops, even withstanding the compression. Only thing I'd change is to make the straps racerback/V back - while the straps haven't actually slipped, I like the assurance of not worrying about slippage at all when running, practicing yoga or hiking (but maybe I'm just a bit neurotic). Also, the bra definitely runs a size small (I've never been a "large" sized bra in my life) - so make sure you order up, or your boobs will be sorry.
Comfortable but flattens
January 29, 2010
Very comfy. I can wear this all day. Also secure enough for working out. However, disappointingly, it flattens, so not flattering with sweaters.
comfy and cute

I ordered two of these bras in the same month after falling in love with the first. The straps are super-thin, yet durable, and the puckering in the center offers just the slightest bit of shape (at least for A/B cups). It's comfortable like a sports bra--but obviously much cuter! I'd definitely go up a size when ordering. Every time I lift my arms the bra rises, and I'm stuck readjusting. Even with the straps at their full length, I need a bit more room (and I'm 5'3" with a small chest). Although not recommended, I have thrown the bras in the dryer, and I wish I had line-dried as directed. The color fades a bit and the material looks a bit worn. Overall, though, this is a great bra!Pros: Great design, Ease of use
Get the right size!

The bras look great but unfortunately they run small. I followed the measurement chart and was VERY disappointed that they were too small. The return policy is that they are nonreturnable because they are considered underwear. I have therefore spent almost $50.00 on two bras I cannot wear. It seems very discourteous of Altrec not to alert buyer of return policy on the product page...especially when they run small!
Teeny Tiny Bra!!
December 09, 2010
I love this material, and the style and cut of this bra seem perfect, the only problem is that it runs SO small!! I am a rather small person, and I usually wear a med or small, so I ordered a small, but when it came I thought it would probably fit a 5 year old. So I'm going to try a large now... and I hope it will fit. I guess this particular style is made for extremely small people. I have tried the Henna Bra and it is wonderful and I wear a med or small in that style, so I guess it's just this particular style.Cons: runs very small
runs very, very small

I ordered a size small, as I am always an xs or s, and could barely get this on. the sizing is way off.
Fits very snug
December 26, 2011
Very cute! Like other reviewers commented, this bra fits very snug. Bought it along with matching bottoms to wear as both underwear and a swimsuit for backpacking. I would normally wear a small, but ordered a medium and it is still very tight. I would recommend going 1-2 sizes up from what you would normally wear in a top.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use

Seems like a nice product, but runs small. I suggest ordering up a size. I'm usually size 32B in bras, so ordered a small, but it's uncomfortably tight. I'm returning it, and will try a medium if I re-order.

I was excited to find a light weight, quick-drying sports bra for backpacking. It did seem to be of good quality, however, it was much smaller than I expected so I had to return it. I am a 34B but judging from the fit of the size small I ordered, someone of my size might actually need to order a large.
Cute, comfy, runs small

Love all the Isis products I've tried. Cute designs, great colors, very comfy. One warning: very tight fit, so order one size up.
Comfy and cute
September 26, 2011
I got the red-ish color and love it... even when my bra strap peeks out from my tank top, with the great color it looks stylin'. Very comfy. Not super durable-looking, but that also makes it nice and light. Runs a little small. I ordered a small and next time will order a medium. I usually wear a small.

I bought 2 of these after reading some of the reviews online and couldn't be happier. I have several of the Patagonia everyday bras, and while they fit fine, the chest band tends to dig into my skin - they fit very small. Plus the Patagonia ones feel very flimsy. These Isis ones are really great - fabric feels very substantial and will no doubt last a lot longer than the Pati. They also fit one size small, but once you get the right size, they are really comfortable. I can sleep in these and they never dig into my skin. Plus the prints look awesome! Highly recommended as an everyday bra.
cute but small

After reading the reviews and using the sizing chart I ordered this bra in a large (I am a 36B). I wanted to use it for an upcoming backpacking trip and was looking for something comfortable to wear day and night and quick to dry. It was very cute, but as warned in other reviews, ran smaller than measurements would indicate. Luckily my 16 year old daughter liked it and so I passed it on to her rather than exchanging it, seeing they did not make it in XL.
Decent comfort bra
November 30, 2010
A decent comfort daily bra for those with A-C cups. Over a year of fairly regular use, it has kept its shape better than blue canoe or other comfort style bras and still provides some support. The first few months, I would wear it out or to work with my tightfighting fashionista wardrobe- but then it stretched too much and became more of a house/weekend bra. Might hold up better for A-B cups. It does give a nice shape, which is better than most exercise bras. Great for those who hate bra straps and hooks.Pros: Ease of use
wacky sizing, runs very small
July 04, 2010
Based on other reviews indicating that this bra runs small, I ordered a M instead of my usual S--and I swear the bra looked like it would fit my 6 year old daughter!!! I managed to get it on and it was ridiculously small--so back it goes to Isis. I'll stick with Patagonia, thank you very much :-}
