    I have a watermelon red with grey trim colourway and the tag says S4490 which is the newer version of this model. B4490 is the older but it still floats around eBay too.

    My measurements are 26" and 34" leaning. Even to FOT, shallow, average width, close-set, tall roots. Usually wear 28E in lieu of easy-to-find 26Fs.

    So this is a 30DD. But this bra model is notorious for running very snug in the band. And I know that oddly some colourways run even smaller. And I used to own two B4490s in 28DD that were veryyyyy tight. So I chose to size up but I should not have. I bounce up top a little more than I'd prefer. Also the straps don't shorten as much as I need. I should have got a 28E or F. I wish it were an inch taller too for my really tall roots but I wish that about every bra.

    Tight! I was looking for a sports bra in a 26 band and this is right between a 26 & a 28! The band only stretches to 27". While the white is opaque, my nipples do show through sometimes.
    This thing is comfortable. So comfortable I want one just for when my breasts are swollen and obscenely sensitive. I fell asleep after working out and still wanted it on when I woke up.
    The wings are high enough to secure me, but low enough to stay clear of my armpit swamps. I can get away with a few wears before washing it.
    Little of the strap is adjustable, meaning that ... the straps are a bit long for me (I'm high set)
    Despite the straps I can forget I have breasts with this on. They move very slightly when jumping or moving suddenly, but I don't feel them and forgot about them while running. Compared to being constantly annoyed and trying to hold my breasts down (in a bra) before, this sports bra is an absolute treasure! I'm ordering more in the white and dark grey colourways while they're still $25> on Amazon, because one of these is not enough. I'm really hoping the dark gray fits the same.

    Lastly! I saw it mentioned that the older B4490 is thinner and stretchier than the newer S4490. I got a B and, well, you read the review. Maybe I got lucky, or maybe it isn't an issue for 30DD but it for other sizes, or just certain batches? I don't know.
    The mesh fabric and seams do show through on mine much more than the stock photos, but the texture didn't show through my shirt.

    Everything that I've heard about how TIGHT the band runs for this bra made me think a 30DD was worth trying. I was surprised at how loose it was... True, my snug underbust measurement is a 26, but I'm not even sure the 28 band will be tight enough for me. The cup seems a little small as well... I was definitely quadboobing. However, I'm not sure I was filling the bottom of the cup 100%... I saw a bit of a crease. I'm hoping it's because a bra in a 30 band just isn't going to work for my frame.

    So I have a 28E and a 28F on the way for me to try... I hope I can make one of those work because there are a lot of things I like about the bra: no pointy boob like my old freyas, looks good overall, comfortable, and the best part is the hooks in the back - great for comfort, fit, and support.

    Awesome, well-engineered sports bra. The cups are sewn with panels to provide support without wires. No bounce, even when running or jumping.

    The band runs about a size tight. My usual size, 28E, was too small, returned for a 30DD and it fits very well.

    I LOVE THIS BRA. I can do sports again! I can jog without pain! I have literally cried tears of joy over this bra!

    The band is very snug. Normally 30 bands are comfortable for me on the largest hook, but I'm able to fasten them on the smallest one. This one is a bit of a struggle to fasten on the largest hook, and the smallest hook would be impossible. It's fine for working out, but it is too tight to wear every day. I suggest sizing up if you are using it primarily for something lower impact, like yoga.

    I'm very happy that you can also wear this ... bra as a top. It doesn't "look like a bra" as much as the separate cup, underwired ones. It also visually minimizes my breasts, which is a plus for me. I am comfortable wearing this without worrying about attracting unwanted stares. I also like that it doesn't come all the way up to my clavicle. I have the black one, but it is available in several bright colors as well. (Check eBay, I found mine for $20!)

    Note: I intentionally bought this bra a cup size down because I have about a cup and a half difference between my breasts. I know you're typically supposed to size your bra to the larger breast, but I was concerned that I wouldn't get enough compression on the small breast if I did that. The larger one is a little smooshed and I have some spillage out the side, but it's not a big problem.

    This bra worked really well for me in high-impact workouts (running, judo, etc.). It runs SUPER tight in the band, though, so you may consider sizing up a bit--if you are on the larger end of 28, this may be quite tight on you.

    The back of the bra has an interesting setup. It has 2 separate sets of hooks and eyes separated by a keyhole. If you have issues with straps being too far apart, or have a less-full upper bust, tightening the upper set of hooks can help tighten up those two areas of the bra.

    This is bit over a year old bra at the time of writing this review. I have two of the exact same color and size that I've been wearing as my all around bras during the year. Very rarely did I wear anything else, so both of them have seen over 150 days of wear, including sports like running, cycling, floorball and snowboarding.

    It is a very comfy and durable bra, the band measurements are exactly the same as in my newly bought 30E of the same model (though not color, sadly). Better keep in mind when buying, that this one doesn't seem to be giving in at all.
