First use: 5 mile easy run & some power moves in the gym.
I loved it! I was hoping to find something to replace my old ones that really ought to be in the trash weeks ago, and this was it! I will probably buy several more in other fun colors as long as they're available in my size.
I normally wear size M in brooks tops (tees, bra tanks such as Glycerin support tank), but I got L in this one and it was perfect for me. I don't have much up top (A or slightly less), and this flattened me out pretty well, so if you are a B-C cup or larger, this might feel a little too snug. I didn't notice any weird hot spots or rubbing in odd areas; no chafing. It was easy to get on and off, too.
Overall: very happy with this purchase!

Seams in All the Wrong Places

I really really wanted to like this bra. I like the way it looks. I like the mesh T back. I like the color. I like the sturdy construction and support.

I really really wanted to like this bra. I like the way it looks. I like the mesh T back. I like the color. I like the sturdy construction and support.

However.

I am a runner. Brooks is a running company. I bought this bra for running. And I run long distances. The number one worst feature in running bra is painful seams. And on this account, the Versatile Bra failed.

I'm no stranger to seam chafing, so when I saw all the excess seams on this bra, I literally slathered myself with BodyGlide. To no avail. I am still recovering from the welts those seams carved into my chest.

Maybe this would work for short (1-3 mile) distance workouts, but it did not work for me.

    Comments about Versatile Bra:

    This has been my favorite bra for a few years - for some reason Moving Comfort bras don't fit me right (though I know they're great for a lot of people) and similar pull-over bras are a crapshoot for whether they'll actually be supportive. These are so supportive and comfortable - yes, they compress and they don't provide "shape" but I like how they look and feel either alone or under a running tank. For reference, I'm 5'4, 115, 30C/32B. Please don't stop making this bra, Brooks!

      While I was excited about this one, when I got it, it was too small (I got it in S, which usually works) and didn't love the cut. I returned it (and did not reorder).

        This sports bra does exactly what a sports bra is supposed to do! And it does it really well!! I love sports, and I spend most of my time running, cycling, swimming, or circuit workouts with friends. This sports bra holds everything in place no matter what sport I am doing. I love it!!!

        I was hoping for something better from Brooks. It's very stiff and runs a size smaller than other sports bras. Very disappointed.

            Even though I ordered a medium per the size chart, it is much too tight. I plan to give it to someone who is smaller than I am - as it is too uncomfortable to wear.

              The band of this bra is so tight I got stuck in the bra and could not get it off. I ended up having to cut it off with scissors. I have sports bras from pretty much every popular brand and I have never experienced anything like this. I would not recommend this sports bra to anyone.

                  I bought it because it was on sale and I like it a lot! Good bra for running. It felt a little tight at first but stretched out and was very comfortable for my long runs. Would buy another

                  This sports bra provides the support I want in a sports bra. The only drawback is that the band is slightly tight, making it difficult to put on and take off, especially after a sweaty workout.
