This is my first attempt at an appropriate sports bra for vigorous exercise. I am coming from the world of cheap compression bras in size XS. I am so glad I bought this!!!
I agree with what others have said, it runs small. I have a 27" rib cage and typically fit into 28D bras. I bought this in a 30D and it is very tight. At first I was worried that it might be too tight, but I wore it to a cardio class and I felt fine. It is difficult to take off especially if your arms are tired from exercise. I thought for a ... few minutes that I might be trapped forever, but I did finally manage to get it past my shoulders and over my head.
Adjustable straps on a sports bra? GENIOUS. No more too-tight straps cutting my traps in half.
This bra straps everything down tightly. It fits similar to a compression bra- there are stretchy cups stitched into the lining, but no foam, gore, or wires. I don't think the middle of the lining is supposed to tack like a gore. If it is, then I need to go up a cup size.

I've run in this bra twice now and I can say that it absolutely arrests all boob movement. That being said, it's a bit small overall so breathing hard is an issue, particularly given that this is a sports bra. I think it's okay for easy shorter runs but if I'm really pushing it becomes a problem. I've been wearing it with an extender which helps some but the small cup on a racer back means it's pretty constricting. I can't decide if I'm keeping this bra or not. I'm going to see if it loosens up enough after a few more washes and wears, otherwise I'll give ... it away.
It runs small in the band and cup. The band would fit a 28 pretty comfortably I think. The cup is maybe only half a cup small but it's hard to say not having tried any other sizes. I have my eye on the same bra in a 30DD on ebay (it's a super pretty color and I have no will power) but I might really be better off in a 32D. I would tentatively say to size up in the band and cup in this bra.

This bra's band runs pretty tight for a 30 (I'm usually a 28). But I purchased this when I really had no idea what size I needed. This bra is really too small for me, and I spill out on all sides. Overall, a nice bra. I'd probably want an underwired sports bra if I had larger breasts (for running anyway).
