Before this, I never had a fitting sports bra.
Things I like.
-soft wicking fabric, including cushioning over the underwires. It is worth mentioning that the underwires nearly touch in the center gore, but since they are padded, there is about an inch of relatively inflexible area in the gore. On me, the gore does not firmly "tack" but it is snug and does not chafe. I think this is due to the padded design. I was able to try all the adjacent sizes, and this was the best fit. While the gore is high, the wires only come up about 50% to the top, so there is no gouging.
The band is *very* firm. I measure just a bit under 32", and I needed a 34". I'm not sure I would have been able to fasten a 32. 34 is my "firm" band size, I usually take a 32 in stretchier styles.
The cups run a bit big. Normally I need an FF (or US H), I took an F in this.
The straps are comfortable, and for extra support can be hooked together as a racerback. This closes up the top of the cups for even less bounce. However, it tends to press on the trapezius, so it is less comfortable. Without connecting them, the bra is comfortable enough to wear all day. The straps are contoured.
No "uniboob"!, and the side profile is acceptable to wear for daily wear. With the racerback, the side profile is very uplifted, a bit too much for a natural appearance on me.
in racerback mode, the straps are too close together for me, because the connector is too high. Still a great bra, and I like being able to make a simple adjustment to "lock down" the bounce.
