    Awesome bra for runners with a small band and large breasts. It does not restrict me in my movement and in contrast to the Panache Sports bra, the racerback hook does not cause me pain and is in the right place. The material is very comfortable and soft (also easy to wash and dry), and still feels nice if you`re all sweaty.

    The "cups" (no real cups, just some extra space) work nicely with my breasts (FOB, not too wide, very soft), there is no spilling on top or on the sides. My breasts stay where they are, even during intense workouts.
    As with all Shock Absorbers I ... ever had, the band of this bra is very tight (I need to go up 1 band size) and does not stretch out quickly.

    Edit: I would like to point out that the band of this bra does not appear to stretch out at all after 50+ uses (1h of running each). Do not buy this bra in a band size which is too tight under the assumption it will soon stretch out!

    So, this is my second Shock Absorber Run Bra. I own a 32DD already that I'm wearing for running, and its band is still pretty tight after several uses and washes, and I wanted a less tight one for yoga and gymnastics. So here it is.

    First of all, I did a side-by-side comparison and couldn't find any differences between this bra the older one, which is a Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra (B5044) (mind it has a B, not an S). Cut, fabrics, finish, sizing and band - everything is virtually the same.

    Second, surprise: The 34 band feels comfy on my 27"/29" ribcage (measured firmly/loosely). It's ... firm but not restricting, and it's not shifting around when I'm moving. Perfect.
    The cups are quite generous and fit my boobs well, although I'm currently on the larger side of 30E. I'd say the cups *do* run 1/2 cup large in this one, but you can cheat somewhat by setting the straps tighter. If you get wrinkly cups while the straps are on their tightest setting then the cups are too large.

    The support I'm getting from it is superb.

    Comparing to other sports bras, I found the Ultimate Run less restricting than the Shock Absorber Active Multi Sports (4490). The fabric of the Run sports bra is more lightweight, thinner and less stretchy at the same time, with pre-shaped soft "moulds" for your boobs. So it acts more like an encapsulation sports bra, while the Active Multi is definitely a compression sports bra that works by squishing boobs closer to the body using stretchy fabrics.

    Also, the Ultimate Run is waaaay lighter than the Panache Sports Bra (5021) and doesn't feel like an armor when you wear it. Plus it's machine-washable.

    Let's talk about boob shape in different sports bras.
    While the shape I get in the Panache Sports is pretty close to a regular random moulded bra (due to the moulded and heavily padded cups), the Active Multi Sports looks rather minimizing and has some of the dreaded "mono-boob" effect going on.
    The Ultimate Run finds a good balance between both: It's considerably more lightweight and doesn't add padding to your shape, like the Panache does. But it doesn't flatten your boobs all out, like the Active Multi. Overall, I'm pretty impressed by the shape it creates without any wires.
    I guess I found my new favourite sports bra.

    Bra does minimize bounce. Great option for a smaller size, but not for a 30GG. Without the underwire it is very comfortable and is very easy to move in, but it does create the uni-boob and smooshes everything together. The top clasp is VERY difficult to reach to close/open.

    This bra is wonderful. Filled with very helpful features, and a perfect fit for those with my measurements. The bra has 2 clasps: 1 for the band, and 1 near the base of the neck (nape). The additional clasp further reduces bounce. The straps are wide and adjustable in length (although it is a little difficult to get the plastic hook out of the very unusual adjustable portion. This is a good thing once the hook is in place -- there is no chance of it slipping out during exercise. The regular band is very tight, but the clasps/hooks don't dig into your skin because the area is ... padded(!). Everything is very breathable and quick-drying. The bra as a whole does compress my breasts to the point where overnight wear, for example, would not be possible. However, this contributes to its function as a high-impact sports bra meant to be worn only during such activities. The model I got features 2 pinks: both are very cool toned, and super cute against neutral or cool skin. I love love love this bra and will purchase more as cute colours are issued in my size just in case it is ever (foolishly!) discontinued.

    Band started out almost too tight to close, making me glad I ordered a size up. However, after about 4 workouts (and no washes. Don't judge, haha), it's almost ready for the second hook. Perfect for shark week workouts, but I'll probably order a size down in both band and cup for the rest of the month. (I.E.: 32D (almost too big) = 30DD, so I think I'll try a 30D)

    Edit: A month later and I'm on the third hook. Time to size down.

    Fits. If I lose weight, the cups will probably gap since I'm hooked into the tightest slot for the shoulder straps.

    Even with an extender, the bra band just barely hooks.

    The straps fit fine, adjusted to a little over halfway down.

    It seemed supportive. I'm returning it and hoping to get one band size up.

    This is a really great bra for any activity. Kick boxing, jump roping, you name it. I had to buy a size down, but I bought the same brand and almost the same style after having had a good experience with this one. However, one of the hooks did fall off and needs to be repaired. I think the hook coming off was a design flaw, because it only has a two hook system, and three would be better.
