    I had high hopes for this bra. Silly me, I didn't listen to others' reviews and order up a band size - I had to go out and buy an extender because after 30 minutes of running I would start getting chest pains because it was so tight!

    Pros: Quite comfortable, very soft, and not at all itchy. The material absorbs sweat very well (bleh!) and because of the cut, it doesn't ever feel like I am stuck in a heavy, sweaty bra: it is very light feeling. Also, unlike many other sports bras I have tried, the straps don't stretch!

    Cons: The straps do not adjust enough; even using ... the racerback option I could still use a good inch less. In order to get great support I have to pull the band down in the back, so it is essentially "riding down" and not parallel and I have to adjust it several times during my workout because it shifts back up to being parallel. Also, since I have to use the racerback option in order to get decent support, my shoulders hurt by the end of my workout and I can't do any exercises that involve raising my arms because it puts strain on those muscles by my neck. Regarding shape: this is a bra that straps you down so you do get monoboob and I end up with a tad amount of side boob.

    Overall, the quality of this bra is very high and I am glad I bought it. If I ever get around to taking up the straps it might just become my favorite sports bra. I would highly suggest trying this one out if you can find it on sale from a site that allows exchanges. Definitely order up a band size (I would use your plus-four measurement if you have a bonier ribcage) and consider going down a cup size if you are a less full __. (So a 30E/DDD might try a 32DD or 32D.)

    I seriously love this sports bra. I've been using it for over 2 years now (starting from when I was a 30d), until now. Anyway, I have it in 30d's, 30dd, and 30e now.It's a combination encapsulaton and compression bra.

    The band is super tight, so it works great for me (26'' underbust). I like that it's not wireless, and the back is adjustable in multiple directions. The back closure is padded- which helps with comfort, and the straps are pretty comfortable. It is very supportive- I get very little bounce. It literally feels like I have my middle school (32aa) sized chest when I run. ... Also, the shape is pretty good- it doesn't totally flatten me out.

    The other thing I like, is that because of the design, I can actually still wear it if I'm a cup size larger. That was really helpful as my chest was growing over the past 2 years.

    It doesn't get too hot when I run in this in the summer (unlike my Panache sports bra). Unfortunately, I do get show through with this one.

    Excellent bra for running, feels like I have hardly any movement in these, less than in my B4490 that I've used so far. The cup size also seems somewhat larger than in B4490. Purple/turquoise color is lovely https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
