The Queen Bra has a deceptively simple design aesthetically – but still includes all of the internal construction that makes it a highly supportive, structured bra. It includes molded cups with perforation for heat release, our unique padded and stable shoulder straps, adjustability in both the chest band and the straps, as well as an extra plush and ribbed chest elastic that forms the foundation of the style. Its body fabric is Power Plya™ Compression which is smooth, durable, and includes a high Spandex® content for stretch and recovery.

Like many women, I've been ISO a sports bra that is supportive and will work for running and other high-impact activities. I was a long-time fan of Moving Comfort bras and then followed them to Brooks Running and was so disappointed when the line was discontinued. Tried the Queen bra and I'm impressed! I'm 5'11, 152 pounds, 36C and so far I am really liking this model. I crossed the straps in the back and felt very supported - held in and up and minimal bouncing - on my speed interval run this week. If that bra disappoints over the coming weeks I'll report back but so far I am sold. I like the feel of the fabric too.
I'm constantly buying bras to try out, since finding comfortable ones for all variety of activities is close to impossible with 34DDD/36DD sizing. I got this today, and...IT FITS! So I immediately tried it out on my Peloton bike, and it was awesome! It's super comfortable, and I'll be wearing it for everything except for running -- definitely not enough heavy impact support there. But it'll work great for weight lifting, peloton, work as a physical therapist assistant, etc. At least I hope it will! The first impression has been great! I immediately crossed the straps to make it a racerback, too. It was almost a bit difficult to get the clasps together, but I got it in the end, lol.
I finally ordered this bra after reading a couple great reviews from other moms. It's impossible to find a good supportive sports bra for large boobs, especially one for nursing.
This bra is so soft and comfortable, so silky feeling and so comfy. Nothing digs in or pulls or pinches!
I used the size finder because after having a baby my boobs are completely new size. The cups are a little bigger than I expected hut the band fits so perfectly. Lots of coverage on the girls, with room to poop one out for a quick feed if need be.
I ordered the Douglas fir colour and it's gorgeous! Perfect bra in my opinion thanks oiselle!!
My boobs got a lot bigger during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I was super angsty and I felt like I’d never find anything that worked. Dramatic maybe, but it’s tough!!! It took a couple tries to measure and find the right size of this bra (I followed the Oiselle blog instructions to do the +4 on the band size), but it was worth it because I love it! No chafing, no uncomfortable bouncing. I love being able to switch up the straps too.
I have the Sisters bra too, and I like this one better because it’s a little lower cut and less matronly, same support, and easier to get on and off.
The black 40D Queen is ON!
Besides providing unsurpassed, all around comfortable support (take note, ex-husbands), there’s no uniboob weirdness or underarm chafing. The adjustable elastic goes from the (4!) back clasps and ends at the top of the shoulder blade. This gives way to a wide, satiny band that spans the arc of the shoulder to the cups. The construction and feel leads me to believe the weight of my 40Ds won’t affect the fit or cause any slicing into my shoulders. There’s nothing itchy or pokey to aggravate 75 year old skin.
Aside from altitude sickness, my girls have nothing to complain about.
Thank you, Sally and EVERYONE @ Oiselle for all these tiny details that culminate in, dare I say it, a bra fit for a Queen!
I’m actually thinking of sleeping in this bra.
I ran 4 miles in the Queen Bra this morning. It wasn't enough support. I am definitely feeling it and kept having to adjust myself while running. I had the straps crossed but loosened them a bit to get it on. It needed to be tightened up. It is really tough to get on with the straps crossed. I will be giving it another go but probably only use for shorter runs or cross training.
I loved this bra while I was breastfeeding and my boobs were larger than they normally are. Back closure, racerback, built-in pads... it checks off ALL the boxes and I love the bird detail on the straps. I would love to see this bra in a B cup, and I wish the straps were an inch or two longer. I can barely wear the bra as a racerback because the band ends up getting pulled over my shoulder blades. As others note the band seems tight, although perhaps this is true to size per the Oiselle sizing guide. I recommend measuring yourself and comparing to the sizing guide, or ordering 1 band size larger than what you normally wear.
FWIW, I wear a 32B or 32C in most bras, and found the 32 ultimately to be too small, and the cups to be too large for my post-breastfeeding deflated breasts!
I've been searching for a replacement to the Brooks Juno (discontinued) all summer. I've tried on dozens searching for a high-support compression bra that can handle long distances on trail. Nothing worked and I was starting to lose hope. I'm not sure why I didn't start here - all of my running shorts, tanks and accessories are Oiselle.
The Queen is it! There's no bounce and no chafe. It's tight, but I like it that way. I only wish it wasn't so expensive, because I need three.
