This was the first bra I owned that I could jump in. I hate running, but it is a nice feeling to be ABLE to run without your arms crossed over your chest. The band is not super stretchy and even felt a little uncomfortably tight to start off with. It took some time adjusting to, but the support is excellent. When I jump there is some very small movement of breast tissue, but it feels totally natural (like how your thigh muscles/fat move in response to the impact of jumping) and not at all uncomfortable. I suppose you could also compare it ... to how much your breasts would move if you held them up with your hands and jumped-- they're not totally immobile and there is a little natural peripheral movement, but they're still supported and not bouncing all over the place.
I've had this bra for a long time, and I can't remember if the gore never fully tacked (it currently fits at bottom only) or if that is the result of my size changing over the years. Regardless, there's still no quad-boob on my larger side, even when I push the gore in, and it does its job. I'm totally held up and in, and unlike any other combination of bras I ever wore for exercise before finding a quality bra like this, it gives me two distinct boobs instead of a uniboob. I love it for that. The wires are the widest I have ever seen, and it does give my breasts a very wide shape, but for a sports bra I suppose you would expect them to be held a little closer to the chest than projected out (my preference for day to day appearance). I'll take two wide boobs over a uniboob any day.
I only wear this for exercise (dance class, zumba, cardio machines at gym) or around the house/on laundry day because I don't find the shape attractive and the center seam on the cup is visible through a lot of my shirts (unfortunately including a thin wicking exercise shirt- which now gets used for only in-home exercise).
