Fiona Sports Bra Review

PicMonkey Collage

Alright – I have found another WONDERFUL sports bra.  I must sing its praises!  So, after Claire’s birth, I bought an Enell sports bra, which I cannot recommend enough for women with larger chests.  Here’s my complete review of the Enell.  In fact, I liked the Enell so much that, as I lost the baby weight, I bought it in a smaller size so I continue wearing it.


But recently, I was on a run with Brandi and she said, “Looks like it’s time to retire the Enell!”  Guess I was bouncing!  It’s crazy how your body continues to change six months after having a baby.  Anyway, the smallest Enell no longer fit me – it was slightly too big in the band (and causing chafing) and the cups were a tad too loose.  So I was on the hunt for a new bra.  Many people recommended the Fiona by Moving Comfort, so I bought that (another popular one was the Juno by Moving Comfort).


Things I love about the Fiona:


It’s super supportive for high-impact activity. 

The cups come up pretty high (not as high as the Enell, though) so you don’t have awkward quad-boob (know what I mean?).

The straps are adjustable in the front of the bra, which really helps with bounce control and is convenient.

The back band is pretty wide.

The material is soft and sweat-wicking.  I wore this bra in my 4-mile race, got really sweaty, and it didn’t feel all damp and icky.

BONUS POINTS – the bra comes in a WIDE range of sizes for larger breasts.  Everything from 30B to 40DD.  So it doesn’t go as large as the Enell, but it does go slightly smaller.


I know that I’ll need to buy ANOTHER sports bra when I’m done breastfeeding, but now I know which one I’ll get – another Fiona!  It’s a great bra.


Do you wear Moving Comfort bras, too?  Like I said, I also heard awesome things about the Juno!

    I’ve never tried them- I’m not fortunate enough to have any issues with sports bras, lol!

  • Katie July 7, 2015, 8:15 am

    I love the Fiona! I found it after I had my first daughter. Its perfect for breastfeeding. Side note: We just had a Claire too. She is seven weeks.

    • Caitlin July 7, 2015, 8:26 am

      Congrats on your Claire!!!

  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul July 7, 2015, 8:22 am

    That bra sounds really cool!

  • Chelsea July 7, 2015, 8:43 am

    The Fiona is my favorite! I have two! I love that they’re so adjustable. Although now that I’m 26 weeks pregnant, they’re getting a bit too tight 🙂

  • Nikki July 7, 2015, 8:47 am

    I had purchased the Fiona because I exercise a lot and breastfeed, so it would be convenient, but once I got it I was disappointed there’s not a little padding in the front. If it’s cold out- watch out for headlights lol! I purchased the Juno instead and am hoping it has better coverage in the front.

  • Karien @ Running the Race July 7, 2015, 8:59 am

    Love, love, love the Juno. Great support, plus my husband actually likes it, because it doesn’t squash my boobs. Forever a fan!

  • Lauren July 7, 2015, 8:59 am

    I also have the Fiona and love it. I also have the rebound racer which has a lot of great support. Moving comfort has by far the best sports bras – comfy and so supportive!

  • Katie D. July 7, 2015, 9:10 am

    I have the juno and love it! I like the adjustable straps because I can nurse while wearing it 🙂

  • Lindsay July 7, 2015, 9:25 am

    I wear the Maia by Moving Comfort. I actually just bought two more because they were half off on their website! It’s their only bra with an underwire, which I desperately need. I’ve tried the Fiona and the Juno, but the Fiona just doesn’t seem to like me. I think it has to do with the shape of my boobs more than the size. I don’t know how to describe them without sounding like I’m bragging, but I kind of have really full boobs and they seem to want to push their way out of the Fiona, no matter what size I try. I would also check out the Panache bra on Amazon. Geez, with all of these sports bras I’ve shelled out the $$$ for, I could have saved up for a reduction. 😉

    • Caitlin July 7, 2015, 9:46 am

      Haha I love this. Have you tried the Enell??? What size would you be in the Enell (check out the website for sizing). If you’re a 0 or a 1, I can send you my old Enell!

  • Marci July 7, 2015, 9:27 am

    i got this one after baby a few weeks ago and really like it. I like the adjustable straps for bf’ing. I wish it were racer back though. Now I’m looking for a similar one that’s racer back. Very supportive!

    • Samantha July 7, 2015, 12:07 pm

      The Juno by Moving Comfort is racerback (with some mesh in the middle part for breathability) and it has the same velcro straps in the front.

  • Sagan July 7, 2015, 9:28 am

    Awesome workouts!

    Thanks for the review – I’ve been on the hunt for another sports bra! Will have to look into the Fiona.

  • Colleen July 7, 2015, 10:09 am

    Juno is my favorite! I’ve tried a bunch of different sports bras for larger chests (DD over here) and the Juno has been the best by far for reducing bounce and providing high support while running. You just have to find the right size since that can be tricky. Fiona is good too, though! Moving Comfort has good sports bras. I am always on the lookout for even better ones since I want zero bounce/max support. Wishful thinking with these large ladies ;).

  • Jolene ( July 7, 2015, 10:35 am

    Haha, I’m usually good with the built in ones that come in LuLu Lemon sports tops 🙂

  • Kate @KateMovingForward July 7, 2015, 10:45 am

    I have the Juno and I love it! It is getting retired from “first place running bra” to lower impact go-to and I actually just replaced it with the Enell bra! I do love the bright fun colors it comes in and because of the adjustable straps I actually used it as a nursing bra some when I was bfing!

  • Katy July 7, 2015, 11:59 am

    Where did you get Claire’s darling headband?

    • Caitlin July 7, 2015, 1:46 pm


  • Breanne July 7, 2015, 1:19 pm

    I love the Fiona! I was one of I’m sure many singing its praises on IG. 🙂 It was the first sports bra I ever found that didn’t require me to wear TWO – so it’ll always hold a special place in my heart. 😉 I do love it though. I’ve been meaning to try some other MC bras too because I’ve heard the Jubralee is like “next gen” Fiona and then in general I’ve heard great things about the Juno, Maia, and Rebound Racers too.

  • Colleen July 7, 2015, 2:32 pm

    I’m a 36D and I luuuuuvvvvv the Juno. I have 3 and they’re basically the only bra I’ll wear for running/bootcamp. I’ve had a Fiona in the past, but personally feel even MORE stable with the racerback. So grateful these bras exist!

  • Ali July 7, 2015, 2:39 pm

    Ok, I don’t mean to sound weird, gross, and stalkerish, but haven’t you tried this sports bra before? I only ask because I learned about Moving Comfort from your blog and haven’t looked back! I can’t find the link but I would love to go back and reread the posts you had previously as well since I’m currently looking to retire some of my old, worn out ones and for the price of really great and supportive sports bras these days, I want to be sure to try a number of items that were recommended!

    • Caitlin July 7, 2015, 2:42 pm

      Haha I think I have – I think I owned the Fiona wayyyy back in 2009, but the back straps were different and the material was different, too. Also the band around the ribcage was a different material? So I’m not sure if it was the Fiona or if this is just a better version of it.

      • Ali July 7, 2015, 2:47 pm

        I’ll have to try the new version! Mine lasted forever (as in, since 2009 when you posted!) since I had enough of them to only need to wear them once a week and wash every other week. 🙂

    • Claire July 7, 2015, 2:58 pm

      Don’t worry Ali, I also checked out and bought a Moving Comfort bra because it was featured in a B.T.C. post ( I don’t care if these are sponsored posts or not — Moving Comfort bras deserve to be promoted, they are a great product. I got the Juno and felt like it was my first real sports bra and all of the previous ones had just been pretenders.

      • Caitlin July 7, 2015, 3:02 pm

        I NEED to try the Juno!!!

        Side note – this isn’t a sponsored post 🙂 I bought the bra with my own cash both times. There is an affiliate link though, so that’s why you may be confused. 🙂 Thanks for reading!

  • Sherilyn July 7, 2015, 4:21 pm

    I love the Moving Comfort Maia, but they changed the way it fits and now I’m looking for another type. I like that it has an underwire and really separates and encapsulates, so no uni-boob look. I’ve actually worn it on vacation as my regular bra and it works great. Love Moving Comfort! I just found out they are part of Brooks!

  • kristin | W [H] A T C H July 7, 2015, 4:26 pm

    i’m headed to the pool tonight. that 2000 m workout looks intense!

  • Krissy Milnazik July 8, 2015, 2:17 pm

    Fiona is on sale on right now! Go get more! 🙂

  • Wendy July 8, 2015, 2:29 pm

    I used to wear the Enell exclusively because no other bra in my size could give me the support I needed. Now that I’ve lost weight and I am a DD or DDD I have been able to expand to other brands!! I have the moving comfort Maia and Rebound Racer that I really like. I also have a couple of Victoria secret sports bras and champion sports bras that I really like as well. It is nice having options 🙂
