    This is a very comfortable bra! even though it doesn't make a very nice profile, I like it for days when I prefer my boobs beeing pushed against my chest. Sometimes I just like them beeing hold very tight https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />

    I've worn this bra for a few runs now. I ordered it in my "typical" 28FF - some 30 bands will fit me and some 28 bands will fit me. I figured a sports bra should be on the tight side, so I went for the 28. The lower hook is extremely tight. I haven't yet decided if I think it's "too" tight or if it's just "extremely" tight. The higher band-hooks aren't too tight, but I'm showing just a bit of boob squished at the top. The straps for this bra, however, have a very narrow adjustment range. I cannot get them as short as I would ... like. I'm 5'5 and high waisted, so I need straps that will adjust quite short.

    I have not yet experienced any stretching with this bra. I wash it in the shower with me after each run.

    This bra does contain movement extremely well. My breasts are not completely stationary as I run, but movement is minimized, and is certainly in a reasonable range. I can jump, twist, turn, and move confident that my breasts will be contained and movement restricted to a reasonable (and comfortable) amount. As my breast tissue is quite malleable, I'm accepting of some movement.

    I love the looks of this bra. Mine is the purple/navy combination, and purple is my favorite color. The front of the bra is certainly nice enough to be worn as an outer layer (as Bravissimo mentions in their description), but the back is both sheer and bra-like. I wear it without an additional top in the Texas summer anyway, but my mother disapproves (as I'm sure others would). Take a close look at the back shots available before you buy, if this is a concern for you. I'll try to get some shots of it up, but it seems most of the vendors have a back shot in at least one color available.

    The mark down for Comfort is for the straps not being short enough. Even with that, I'd likely buy again (may pick up a lighter blue/teal one, or wait for more colors to be released).

    OK so when people say this bra runs tight, they mean it runs TIGHT. I can only just do the band up on my 25.5-26 inch ribcage, even with the cups on my back so it's not a problem of the cups being too small. I would recommend ordering a band size up. I think it also runs fairly small in the 'cups' (not that it really has cups). I usually wear 28FF and I would probably order this bra in a 30FF next time, depending on if the band stretches out on this one. The bra is very supportive when exercising, though admittedly I guess I'm comparing that to my 4 year old 32D sports bras, so I'm not sure how it compares to other decent sports bras. I'm very happy with it though!

    EDIT: The band is really tight. Like, really, really, really tight. If your ribcage is any bigger than 26 inches don't order a 28 band. I just heard stitches rip when I inhaled and I'm sitting at my computer hardly moving.

    This one snuck in without getting measured so I've had it for awhile. It's supposed to be the same size as my other 28FF Shock Absorber, but this one feels more true to size (less snug) in the band. It fit better when I was a cup size bigger, but since it has such good band support and it's fully enclosed on top, I'm going to keep wearing it. The straps don't offer much adjustment, so I might attempt to alter them so I can adjust the straps tight enough to take up some of the slack in the cups. Overall it feels pretty good. Colorway is a purple/aqua combination.

    For a more detailed review, please see my review of the same bra in 28F, same colour way 28F - Shock Absorber » Active Multi Sports (4490) . This bra is slightly bigger in the cup area. It is taller than the 28F and covers a bit more, but the band is the same and runs like a 24. This bra is great for running, it holds everything in place quite well. I have tried Freya Active and Panache sports bra as well, but I will say those do not suit my shallow shape at all, and the cups are hollow but cuts in at the top edge. Perhaps the reason why this bra does not fit many of the larger sizes is because of how flat it is. Definitely consider this if you are on the shallow side.

    After trying the 28F and getting spillage and back fat, I figured going up a cup size (FF) would fix my fit issues. The band is pretty tight, but my spillage problems are gone and the cups fit pretty well. I expect this to stretch out over time so I think this size is the correct one for me.
