This bra just does not work with my shape. It's made for someone with wider breasts than mine - you can tell by the fabric alone. The bottom of the cups are too shallow so I don't fill them, and I quadboob at the top. It's decently supportive on the 3rd hook, but a smaller band size would be ideal. A 28F actually fits way better, but still has the same problems to a lesser extent.
That being said, it looks like it would be a great bra for someone with the right shape and size. I love that it has two sets of hooks in the back. ... True, it does make it a bit harder to put on but it also makes it more comfortable and supportive. It's really supportive and minimizes breasts. It has a bit of a flat look, but that is how people expect women to look with a sports bra. Not the pointy boob look I got with my freya sports bras (they were fantastically supportive though). It will show through a tight t shirt as you can see in a couple of my pictures, but I wouldn't mind too much.

Bought this off another bratabase user and man was she right when she said the band ran tight. I prefer tight bands but even with a 26" tight underbust this thing was stretched as far as possible to get around my underbust. The cups are also at least one cup too small, but even with the bra on backwards the band still doesn't allow nearly enough room for breathing, which is obviously important during physical activity when I would be wearing this.
The shape isn't too flattering, which isn't too unusual for a compression bra and it's probably exacerbated by the too small cups as well. I do prefer the shape of my Panache Sport, but I really think I prefer wireless for sports bras.
It's such a shame because I love the double hooks and it seems like it would be very comfortable/supportive in the right size. I also love the color but I'm having trouble finding the coral/charcoal colorway online anywhere :/

Wow, everyone wasn't joking when they say Shock Absorbers run tight in the band! This actually wouldn't be a terrible thing for me, as I am a runner. But the cups also run extremely small (for reference I usually wear my Panache Sport in 28E during exercise). This feels like a tight 28D. My breasts were spilling out the tops and sides (I was able to fasten it so no spilling out the bottom). If I were to purchase again, I'd probably have to get a 28FF or G (who knows?). But if you got the correct size in this bra, I can see it really helping reduce bounce.

What an awesomely well made bra, but the band is WAY too tight. I can only fasten it if I "suck it in" and get help from my boyfriend! It would probably be a great fit on someone who needs a 26 band.

Awesome sports bra. The band is VERY tight and the straps are almost too long. The strap issue would probably be fixed if I went down a cup size (my boobs have more than enough room in there right now), but I bought this size because I found it for very cheap on eBay. The padding on the straps is wonderful for comfort.
But I wear this bra during long endurance runs and my boobs do not move at all, which is fabulous and exactly what it is supposed to do. I also own it in a 30DD and it works great too, so you can fudge the size a bit as long as the band is doing its job.
