    Wow this is a tight one.
    My 28F - Shock Absorber » Active Multi Sports (4490) stretches to 26" and I can wear it because my BTT is 26. This one, this 30 band, I could barely get to 25" and I had to PULL.

    The color is a bright coral red, (I wouldn't call it dark pink like they did, but whatever) with a charcoal gray piping on the trim. The materials are smooth and sturdy. Two band clasps in the back, straps are only about 1/4-1/3 adjustable. Sliders are sturdy and adjust easily, the front of the straps are wide, thick, and cushioned.

    This particular color would be good for someone with a 24" underbust, it just isn't going to happen on anyone larger.
    These are great sports bras, I'm really disappointed that I couldn't even hook this because I'd love to have a second one.
    Times like this are when I really appreciate free returns with Amazon Prime.

    • Was this the Amazon super sale color way? I bought it for my mom and sized up, but maybe not enough.

      Yeah, it was like $18. It was called Dark Pink.

    • Well :// hopefully it still works. Probably not though.

      I ordered with the sale and sized up too after reading the reviews. I can't believe how tight it is! I will be sending mine back as well!

    Because the 32E - Shock Absorber » Active Multi Sports (4490) Dark Floral measured one band size small, I figured this one would too, but it's closer to two. I could stretch it to 26" and that's it. I could barely fasten it and it hurt my lats for the few seconds I had it on, so no modeling pics of this one.

    Anyway, my 28F - Shock Absorber » Active Multi Sports (4490) also measures about 26", the difference, I think is use. I've had my 28F forever, it's been washed and worn more times than I can count and the materials are not as stiff and unforgiving. I could probably wear this one too with enough time (or when I cut and am less fluffy), but it was the most expensive of the three I bought so I'm sending it back.

    I marked quality as "okay" the Dark Pink at least shows consistency with both sizes running two bands small, but the Dark Floral isn't as consistent.

    I have the black and white color.

    The back is tight, but I don't need to size up. It is absolutely perfect. I can breath easily, but the band don't ride up when I expire, or rise my arms (my ribcage is 73cm, mesured tightly, 69cm as tight as possible). If I want to have a very deep breath, I feel the tighteness of the band, it is not super confortable, but I can deal with during one hour of fun sport !

    Cups fits too.
    But I have a little issue with this bra : part of my breast tissues is quite high on chest, and this bra ... is too short for support it. When I jump, my breast can escape at the top,but it is not painfull. The good thing is I have absolutely no bounce from the sides. Maybe the next time I will purchase something with more coverage.

    edit 10 months later :
    This bra gets old very well ! I have worn it 3 hours each week. Still very supportive and tight in the band, still looks good. But my underbust is now 2 cm bigger so my bra is too tight, even if the band has stretched a little bit (like 1 hook, maybe less).

    Super tight band actually feels great, but the straps don't adjust short enough. I may need to go down a size, as there is some odd wrinkling of the "cup" seams, but everything feels secure without chafing. This is a "wear it a couple times before I decide" kind of thing.

    I wear sports bras as my everyday bra, because they just feel more comfortable and I can run to catch a bus without painful bouncing if need be (read: very often). Shock Absorber B4490 has been my choice in a few different cup sizes for the last several years. It is an excellent bra, comfortable, durable and it does keep the bouncing to minimum.

    Color wise they come in standard black/white and white, plus a special color that seems to change every year. This one is the previous special red/blue with white accent around the edge.

    It is a compression bra, so it gives a bit of a uniboob look. It also makes the breasts seem 2-3 cup sizes smaller, which I like a lot, but I bet that it is not to everyone's tastes. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    Seems good quality and (as it says on the tin) good for high-impact stuff. I purposely chose it for not having individual cups, but some might not like that. However, rather difficult to do up unless you have great shoulder mobility, due to having two sets of double hook-and-eyes - one on the band, as with all bras, but another halfway between there and the shoulders, which was rather hard to reach.

    It worked nicely but I didn't use it much before outgrowing it (or rather, outgrew it because I didn't wear it much, due to not exercising much? https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />).
