Super comfortable and I love the phone pocket! My phone feels secure and the placement works well with wireless headphones. It means I don't have to look for running shorts with a big enough pocket to fit a phone in anymore, so good!

So comfortable and the pocket is a winner
This was my first Oiselle purchase as I had been looking everywhere for a bra with a pocket as I hate trying to carry a phone in shorts. This is perfect - so comfortable. No chafing and I have worn it on trail runs, competing in a half marathon, bike riding and bush walking. I am a 32B and a 6 was perfect (I’d usually be a 4 but took the advice to go up a size). I am so happy that I bought 2 - (was worth the shipping cost to Australia ). More colours please!

Finally a bra with a pocket!
I just received mine and am in love. It is so comfortable and fits like a glove. I could see how for some the arm holes could be snug, but mine fit perfectly after I sized up (from my usual 6 to 8, I’m 5’7” and a 36 B). The fabric is soft and I just wanted to wear it around the house all day. I ran 6 miles without trouble but have yet to try it with a hydration pack for a longer run. I could also see how for those with larger breasts sizing up could lead to it not being quite snug enough for support. Regardless I think it is a step in the right direction- more bras with storage pockets please!

Too big and long
Love the idea of this bra, but it doesn’t provide high impact support and the straps are way too long. I bought a size larger than normal based on sizing recommendations, but returned it for my usual size but even that is too large. I’d exchange it again for yet another size smaller, but I already took the bra for a spin. Maybe next time around the sizing kinks will be worked out.

After reading other reviews and the description, I sized up one size. The fit through my chest was right, but unfortunately the arm holes were just a bit too small. The back coverage is very wide which made it awkward when my arms were swinging and I could easily see causing some chafing for longer runs/hikes. I really wanted to love this bra since the strap width would have made using a hydration pack a lot more comfortable. Oiselle - is there a way to keep the strap width and low profile but keep the classic bra fit?
- Coverage in front, wide straps
- Arm holes tight and wide back coverage.

Already back for my second one!
I bought this bra with some skepticism, but after wearing it on the trails yesterday, I'm over the moon. The back pocket fits my enormous 8+ and doesn't slide around at all. I ended up wearing this bra most of the weekend to run and do yoga, and it never felt uncomfortable. I wear a size 6 across Oiselle, but took the suggestion above and purchased the 8. I don't think the 6 would've fit, so I recommend going one size up. Please make more colors of this!
- Everything, especially the fact that the phone pocket fits my enormous phone, unlike some phone pockets that only work for small phones
New favorite bra
I've worn this bra for a 14 mile long run and repeats at the track. My phone stays nice and snug in the back pocket. I'm going to be buying both colors! It does run slightly small, so if you're between sizes, go up one size. Fantastic piece to add to my running picks!

I was very excited to see this bra, as someone who still carries a phone for safety and entertainment on my runs. I like the Nike bra with a similar pocket on the back but would rather support Oiselle. I bought my usual size (4) and a size up (6). The 6 is more comfortable but the 4 works with the pads removed.
This is close to perfect. The pocket on the back is just mesh, not a stretch material, so it doesn't hold the phone in tightly (i.e., don't bend over and tie your shoes - you'll lose the phone). However the phone doesn't bounce during the run so it works for the intended purpose. I would also like if the bra was more crop-like and extended long-line down my ribs. Finally, because the back is so broad it is not racerback, but more crop-style, so if you're wearing a tank top it might look strange. The back also makes the arm holes tight (especially on the smaller size) so the possibility for chafing is high. Finally, the seams in front are fine, but not totally necessary.

This bra is for real!
This is the first review I have ever written and if I could give more than 5 stars then I would!! I was a little skeptical about the claims written about this bra. I wore it on my long run today with my Hydration vest and not one bit of chafing from the vest! I am amazed! If you run with a hydration vest you NEED this bra! I will be getting more
