My under bust ranges from a super tight 28.75 to inhaled and loose 31, so I ordered a band size 32 since I saw they ran tight. Trying it on, everything fit as it should. Jiggling was minimized but I did not feel like was wearing a medieval breast plate like I usually do when I wear sports bras- so that was a huge plus! The cup fabric was nice and silky feeling so I wouldn't have any nipple irritation either.
To test out the bra, I wore it on a camping trip to Joshua Tree. The back side of the bra is very open with only straps and some mesh which was helpful for keeping me cool in the 100 degree heat (well as cool as you can possibly be at that temp). Cup fabric did great at wicking away under boob sweat, so I only had sweat gathering in my cleavage, which I'm fine with on a compression bra.
The major problem with this bra is it runs extremely tight. Halfway through the day my lungs felt very compressed, like it was too difficult to breathe in. It got to the point where I had to unhook both sets of hooks to give my intercostals a rest. When i measured the bra once home i discovered the stretched band was 30.5 inches, not even close to 32! I'm hoping this stretches out but until then I do not plan on using it for anything over any extended physical activity.
As for cosmetics, the bra has lots of seams and almost all of them show under tech clothing. Boobs are minimized but the monoboob isn't that pronounced. It also looks super cute when worn shirtless, especially if you manage to pick up one of their colored ones https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
