Great bra with one small issue (for me)

I received this bra for free in exchange for providing an honest review online. I find it comfortable, cute, and fits true-to-size. I love the mesh detailing and the turquoise color! Only issue for me is some minor gapping on the sides, by the armpits.

Not for me

The armholes were too snug for me. Found that restrictive for my movements and not as comfortable as a sports bra can be. Really liked the style & color though. I returned this one.

A "cute sports bra" for me!

Well I guess you could say I've suffered a little bit of cute strapped sports bra envy. Being a C cup and having shoulder issues, whenever I tried one of those cute pullover sports bras with the fancy backs, if I got it a size that was fairly easy to put on and take off, it was about as supportive as an old cotton tank top. And if I got it in a size that might actually work for medium-impact…

Well I guess you could say I've suffered a little bit of cute strapped sports bra envy. Being a C cup and having shoulder issues, whenever I tried one of those cute pullover sports bras with the fancy backs, if I got it a size that was fairly easy to put on and take off, it was about as supportive as an old cotton tank top. And if I got it in a size that might actually work for medium-impact activity, I lived in fear of needing to call 911 to get it off my even-slightly-sweaty body. So when Brooks contacted me with an offer for a free sports bra in return for my honest review, I perused the offerings for a bra that might satisfy that envy, and settled on the Fast Forward bra. The combination of fabric and mesh makes for a cute, non-vanilla look, and the straps crossing in back take that look a step further. The bust band is sewn down, and doesn't roll. And it fastens in back with a swimsuit closure, which is a lot easier for me to handle than a hooks-and -eyes closure. The first time I wore it, I realized pretty quickly that I needed to do a better job of tag removal, but when I took it off and looked at it, I found I was able to easily and cleanly tear the tags from the seam they were sewn into. I wear it with the removable cup liners out, and have worn it for Pilates, weight training and walking. The level of support is fine for me for these activities, although I think it would be less comfortable for higher impact stuff (as expected for a medium impact sports bra). And I like feeling like I'm wearing a cute sports bra! Read More

Great adjustable bra; just not for a large bust

The FastForward CrossBack has great features, but ultimately wasn't for me. I'm petite yet busty, and really liked how snugly it fit with the adjustable band and straps. However, I ended up spilling out of the front and sides. This bra is great for a custom fit, but not so much for those who are well endowed. As a note, I received this bra free of charge to try in exchange for an honest review.

Comfy and Stylish

"I'm loving my FastForward! It's so comfortable! The mesh is stylish and soft and I love the back. Cute for any top I want to wear with it. I also love the padding on the cup, it adds support and modesty. I probably wouldn't be able to run in this bra, since it's medium support and I'm pretty busty, but it's perfect for everyday because it's so comfortable! Thanks to Brooks for sending me this…
