I love how comfortable this bra is! It has become my daily bra. The material is supportive, and I like the lift that it gives me. The only bummer about this bra is the seaming. Although I like the support and shape the seams provide, they frequently show through clothing, which is a definite con for me.

Technically this bra doesn't fit properly (center gore not flat against my sternum, slight quadraboob on one side, some underarm tissue outside the cups). However, I'm not sure I wouldn't order it again in the same size. I don't think I could go down a band size (the first time I ran in this bra I could barely breathe) and I fear going up a cup size but keeping the same band just wouldn't give me the same support. Currently this encapsulation bra is giving me a combination of about 70% encapsulation and 30% compression, and that's great. I've been running much more since I got this bra- ... to minimize bounce with my previous sports bras I tended to keep my arms as close as possible to my body while running, which resulted in neck and shoulder pain. Now I can count on the bra to minimize bounce, so I move my arms freely.
I wouldn't like this shape for everyday wear, but as a sports bra the shape is absolutely fine.
It doesn't feel too soaked in sweat when I take it off, and after I wash it it dries quickly.
Update: after ~2.5 months I needed to switch to the second hook and tighten the straps. In an average week I wear the bra for 1 running workout (consisting of 20-30 minutes actual running and the balance of the hour stretching or doing strength exercises), one individual run (~20 minutes), and 1 ballet class (~1 hour 15 minutes). (The first month and a half the ballet was replaced with a third run). Next time I'll probably go for a 30 band, and cut off the hooks and eyes from this one to sew an extender to get me through the first couple of workouts. Side note: during ballet I love watching my breasts in the mirror while I jump and seeing how amazingly still they stay!
Update- Another 3 months (5.5 total) and I'm on the third set of hooks&eyes. I'll update when I get to the fourth set.
