I absolutely love this sports bra! It fits me perfectly in my usual Panache size of 30F, and it does exactly what it says on the tin. I wear it on the loosest hook for light to moderate exercise, but I'll reel it into the middle or tightest for more serious bounce reduction. It's incredibly comfortable, and it reduces bounce to an unnoticeable minimum.
This is the first underwired sports bra that I've ever tried, and I was impressed by their clever design. There is a layer of foam protecting the chest from any underwire related discomfort. The wires end approximately half way up the center panel; the foam cups provide the shape the rest of the way up. As a result of the construction, the uppermost central part of the cup is rather square-ish. My breasts don't fill this section, and in this small area the support is less, but I suspect that it makes the sizing more forgiving than other bras.
The racerback option on the straps doesn't really work for me, though it would likely work for someone shorter. I'm 5'7", and I can just fasten the racerback clip if I lengthen the straps to their maximum. However, the X winds up high on my back, and the foam straps dig uncomfortably into the muscles at the base of my neck.
