I bought this bra in pink and in black to replace my panache sports bra, which was really uncomfortable.
When I wear it I feel smokin' hot!
I am happy with it generally but wouldn't recommend it for running or jumping around a lot, it seems to gape at the top, so the goods wobble around like jelly! Still it was the best sports bra I found considering I was previously wearing 2 bras at the same time to get the support to go running. In the bra shop yesterday the assistant told me that the gaping at the top problem is something lots of wearers of this ... bra complain about.
I just bought a shock absorber bra from her which I was skeptical about because it's wire free but I am so so happy with it. Just a bit sad that that one only comes in boring black or even more boring white. If you're thinking about getting this bra definitely get fitted in it in person if possible and compare with the SA one because I think it's better.

I don't like this bra as much as I liked my old Panache sports bra, but it does its job. In terms of bounce reduction, it works very well. But there are some issues when it comes to fit and comfort.
The band is very firm, but I can still fasten it comfortably - however, if I gained any weight around my ribs I'd need to go up a size. The cups are also extremely wide. Again, this is not a problem for me, but I'd recommend avoiding this bra if your breasts have a narrower root. The other problem I have with it is that the sides of the cups are very high under my arms, and can dig into my armpits uncomfortably when I reach forwards.
The centre gore also doesn't quite tack for me. This doesn't seem to be a problem with the cup size, but rather an issue with the shape of the wires versus the shape of my sternum. It doesn't seem to be a problem in terms of the function of the bra.
