    30FF

    Didn't fit

    I find that this bra runs small in the band and in the cups, compared to many other brands that fit me in 28F (/FF), like Panache sport (28F/FF), Panache Andorra 30E (I think 28 would be better, and particularly 28FF, but 28F would do because of the stretching lace), etc.

    The bra is a little hard to close, the upper clasps are really high up! But I can manage that. Colour is pink-purple, lovely.

    The only problem is that the straps didn´t adjust short enough for me. They really don´t adjust much! I NEVER have this problem in bras, so be aware. Of course I did alter the straps myself, some cutting and sewing, and now the bra is perfect https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

    The 30F of the same bra I have is also wearable. I get slight quadboob in it, but otherwise it is fine. Straps in that bra are not a problem for me.

    28F

    Didn't fit

    I actually have 2 of these bras, and both are completely red (the other is in 28FF). They both run like 24 bands, which is perfect for me, especially during exercise. (If you check the measurements for this bra, the other colours seem to run closer to 26's. So if you need a 24, look for the all red one).
    Right now I am about a 28F cup volume, and the bra is just a bit small around the chest. It really squishes me in and up, where some of my breast tissue is coming out at the top. It did fit very well though when I needed the 28E cup volume.

    This sports bra really helps eliminate any pain during exercise and when I was running, it kept me in place. I'm not sure how it will work on significantly larger breasts, but for moderately small/medium boobs, it works very well.

    30E

    Didn't fit

    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).

    32F

    Didn't fit

    Sadly, this bra didn't fit me. I tried it in three different cup sizes and I could tell by the difference from each size (not a lot of vertical increase from size to size) that this would not suit me even if I altered it as I would've been open to, had the vertical coverage been greater. My boobs are very high on chest and full on top and unfortunately the neckline wasn't nearly high enough to contain me. I would've needed a cup size that exceeded my standard-size waaaaay above and even so it might've not turned out successfully because then the seams on the sides of the "cups" would've been spread way too wide, making it less supportive. There's not enough vertical coverage in my size range. I decided against it. I would not recommend this bra if you are very full on top. It should work great for FOB's though.

    My blog review is much more detailed.

    28DD

    Didn't fit

    A sports bra that locks my breasts down completely while running! Fantastic! I don't even think about my breasts once while running, which is a first! The band is very tight, and there's even another band higher up that connects the straps together for even more support. But don't let the super super tight band scare you--that's what makes it so effective at holding your boobs in place while running around. I've read about other women buying a band size up for this and other Shock Absorber bras but I think if you do you're sacrificing support, especially considering bras stretch out over time. One gripe I have ... is that I wish the straps could be pulled tighter. They're not loose by any means.. there's just not a lot of option for adjustment.

    I got mine in a cute grey and purple shade and it isn't even ugly as far as sports bras are concerned.

    PS I got this on ebay for only 12 USD. It was listed as
    "b4490 shock absorber level 4". I think my particular model is discontinued but that's what it was sold as.

    34F

    Fits

    I read it was tight so I ordered a 34 instead of a 32 which is usually my size. I find it fits me fine. It is not too tight nor too loose. The fabric is extremely elastic (in a good way) so I don't think a 32 would be too too tight.
    It is a good fit overall, but I ordered a few for choice and preferred how I felt with the Panache Sports Bra. It is definitively supportive and reduces bounce well, maybe a tiny bit more than the Panache one. The material also looks really really great.

    What I didn't like:
    First, the upper hook is very ... difficult to fasten. (It has 2 lines for fastening, both with 2 hooks).
    Then, I didn't feel totally comfortable with it. It kind of presses my boobs on top so it doesn't help me getting the rounded shape that I would like. I prefer bras with underwires because the lift my breast up from the bottom.
    Also, being non wired it gives you a mono-boob shape that I don't find very flattering.

    It is a good bra, great quality, supportive and comfy. I just felt better with the Panache one.

    32DD

    Didn't fit

    One of my favorite bras, even though it's "just" a sports bra.

    I usually wear a 30E, which would be waay too tight in this style for me. 32DD fits very well. I have the B4490 in white.
    It stops all movement, which makes it very comfortable not just for running around and stuff, but also for moments in which I have problems with hurting breasts (in some parts of my cycle). I can't wear it for an entire day though, it would be too tight, but I don't have to wear a sports bra all day, so that's fine.
    It's sort of odd to close it at first (due to the racerback), but I got used to it very fast.
    It's machine washable (40°C) and didn't stretch out.

    The only thing that sort of bothers me is the shape, it doesn't do much and mostly flattens my breasts.

    30GG

    Fits

    Note: Obviously it is difficult to "measure" without separate cups so several fields are left blank. I hope the other measurements can help!

    Tried this on in a boutique and they only had 30GG which is normally far too large a cup for me but this was perfect. It leads me to believe it may run small instead of being "accommodating" as it needs to be the perfect size.. and it IS!

    32E

    Didn't fit

    My shape: close set, center full, full on bottom, average/narrow width roots, tall shallow roots, soft tissue.

    This is the 6th Shock Absorber bra I try. This one is a better fit for me then the Classic Support style, but it was very tight in the band. I tried it with an extender, and added two extra hooks, and the cups felt better, but I'm not sure if they're still somewhat too small for me.

    The top hook is very hard to do once you put the bra on; I managed to hook it, but I was contorting in every which way which was ridiculous. The ... straps are borderline too short for me, but they're okay. The fabric is stiff to offer compression, but not uncomfortable. I wish it came up a little bit higher in the front and the sides, which is where I still have movement when I do the bounce test.

    I am not keeping this bra, but I want to try this in a 34DD and 34E to compare the two sizes to see if these are a better fit for me.

    32G

    Didn't fit

    This bra runs at least one to two sizes small in the band and one to two sizes small in the cup. I fit in some 30FF bras and ended up in a 32G to make it fit. The cups are extremely wide but it's very supportive once you find the right size to fit you. Cups are very tight at the armpit and tall.
