    I tried this in my usual UK size of 40HH.

    Fit: The band stretched to 43 inches, and I would have liked a firmer band in a sports bra. I could have fastened it on the tightest hook. However, there is no sister size to the 40HH. The cups were either too small at the apex or an awkward fit, I'm not sure. I generally collapsed over the band and had cleavage at the top so if I sized up I figured I would get less support (and they don’t make it in that size) and if I sized down I was going to pop ... out the top. I could not fasten the top hooks however, because my arms don't reach there, so that defeated the purpose of the bra entirely as I don't want to ask women in the gym locker to fasten my bra for me. Where are all the front close sports bras in my size?

    Comfort: It was ok. I wasn't a fan of the exposed inner seaming pressing on my tissue. The fabrics were soft and thick, but not as smooth as other bras. The band was comfortable. Probably too comfortable.

    Style: I loved the colors, the pattern was not my style, but the colors were lovely! I would have been happy wearing as a top it with my high waist leggings if it had fit.

    • The band length surprises me! That is long when on the on the other end of the size spectrum, the band is short...too short. Interesting observing the differences in the range.

      And, that upper fastener, for me, is critical for support. In fact, I can happily wear my Shock Absorber Active Multi with the band hook unfastened. That really surprised me!

      The upper hook is in a very awkward position!!

      Sorry this didn't work!

      Yeah that was probably the problem. I might look for a cheap one on Amazon and wear it when my husband can help me fasten it.

      However, fastening the upper hook may cause you to "pop out the top". Cheap would be good just in case it catapults your tissue out of the cup. ;-) ;-)
