I have projected, pendulous breasts and generally prefer lightly padded styles in bras, so this Freya Active Moulded Sports bra seemed really promising. It is underwired, which is an absolute necessity for me in a sports bra. For ladies with a need for wide wires, this might be lovely. Because of those wide wires I found my narrow-rooted breasts flattened, and the lack of cup depth (minimizing effect) meant that my tissue was squished out of the tops of the cups. I also have an issue with some tissue being almost pinched between the wing and strap in snug sports bras, and this bra ... aggravated that complaint. I found the inner construction of the bra a little weird with compressing fabric at the margins of the cups, which might be useful for some but with my soft tissue created some strange in-cup quadding. The straps are partially adjustable, and although elastic, are super stiff and strong for support. I did not test out the racerback hook but it has one if that's important to you. This feature could be difficult to engage onself as there is a little bump on the hook for retention of the loop, but that requires the loop be flipped around completely (so straps are effectively atop one another, right-sides facing) to slide it in. Finally, this bra passed the bounce and run-in-place test without allowing my breasts to move all about, but fitting as it did this was too uncomfortable to sustain for more than a minute.
