Very short, projected, slightly narrow, even, close set, center-full breasts....
Woo! Hoo! I had not realized how much bouncing breast tissue was encumbering my want to exercise. I'm happily encapsulated, not overly compressed, and bounce-free. This will never win a beauty contest because the fit is....lumpy. Intriguing. I was concerned my very short roots would find too much unoccupied space in the cups. I'm overjoyed with the support I feel from this bra. And, an air gap is present between my two breasts which should improve cooling and reduce perspiration. Because I am extremely flexible, I have no problem fastening the upper hooks. Tall roots may not be happy in this bra because it is very shallow near the neck. Finally, I feel no pain in this bra that is omnipresent in an underwire bra. Thank you Shock Absorber!

Third try is a charm! I've tried this bra in 30FF, 32F, and now in 30G... and I have a perfect fit! I have Love4Pollinators to thank for this bra! My shape is soft, lower set, even to FOB, narrow, and slightly centre full.
This shock absorber is a poppy red (almost coral orange) with grey accents. It is a compression type bra, and it has two rows of hooks on the back band (two upper, two lower, in a split band). The band is firm and has some stretch but doens't stretch to 30", which offers a lot of support without movement.
This bra encloses all my breast tissue without letting any escape with the bouncing, which I appreciate, and it also compresses without making me feel too squished (the smaller 30FF I tried allowed tissue to escape and I felt very squished). Although the bra squishes across my tail of spence, I don't find it uncomfortable at all because the bra doesn't slide around when I exercise.

I am a fairly even and projected breast shape. I have average-to-narrow roots with a slight omega shape. My best fitting bra is a Cleo Lily in 28GG, though I think a 30G would be more comfortable in terms of band length.
A great sports bra! I like how the back hooks are split into two sections - I feel like this gives more support over a more spread out area. The colours are nice and solid - it's fine to wear on its own. The white allows my nipples to show through a bit, so I was happy this one did not.

This bra provides no separation and a lumpy shape, BUT I wear it to hot yoga, where it performs perfectly. I wish it was a little higher cut, as I get some serious cleavage in certain poses. I don't like this bra for running, as I still get a lot of movement, but for low impact exercise it works fine.

-Double banded back allows for more personalized tightness and looseness levels
-It's stood up very well to very high usage
-Too small in cups, my boobs run over the top and I have a ton of cleavage
-Band stretched out quickly
-White part is not very white after sweating in it

This is the first sports bra in real cup sizes I've purchased, and tried reading up on how the sizing fits differently from regular bras. It definitely does not have enough cup volume for me, unfortunately. It's brand new with tags (tags were removed but are still in tact). When I put it on, the band felt tighter than a 30 band bra, but was still okay (you want tight bands when working out, right?). My boobs were definitely squished, and I need a bigger cup volume, so I'm guessing (and would like to try) a 32G would work much better.

When I first bought it, it fit okay. A little small in the cups, but I figured that was okay because it was a sports bra. I did find that my breast wanted to escape to the sides, though the bra tried to push them together and flat. It looks really ugly underneath a shirt, showing all it's lines and seems, while creating a weird shape to your bust. As a sports bra it seemed to function okay.
My favourite part was the way the straps in the back are designed. Having the two sets of hook-and-eye closures in the back makes it hard to put on, but was really comfortable once on. It ensured that the straps never slipped off, and was overall pretty comfortable.
Now that the cups are definitely too small, though, it is very very uncomfortable.
