I am usually wear a 30F and am narrow, projected, FOB, and have shallow tall roots. This bra is true to size so I have to fasten the band on the tightest hooks. In the beginning it took me many tries to fasten the bra. I would hook a bottom hook to one of the top hooks or hook the bottom together and not be able to do the top hook but now I know the top hooks must be done first. The bra has strips of extra fabric around the cups which must be positioned to help prevent chafing. My boobs still touch each other in this ...bra but not enough to bother. Once the bra is on correctly I feel very supported and its my go to bra for high impact activities like running. The deepest part of the cups is too high so the bottom wrinkles. The straps sit comfortably on my shoulders, not too close to my neck like most racerback bras. The fabric is quick drying and the colors are still bright after many washes and lots of sweat.

Although Shock Absorber bands run small, Syrokan bands are true to size (of the two models I've tried). Syrokan's smallest band is 32. This bra looks similar to Shock Absorber 4490, but I receive significantly less support in the Syrokan because the band is true to size. Unfortunately, I need a 30" band on my 28" underbust and Syrokan is available in 32"+ bands.
The cup easily accommodated my projected breasts. I felt gently supported, but aware that the band was a little too big and a portion of breast escaped through the top. If a Shock Absorber hadn't arrived the same day, I may have kept the ...$20 Syrokan.
I'd happily wear this bra for yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, .... If you have a larger underbust, you may find this appropriate for jogging, but it didn't provide enough support for me to even try Kinect Sports Track and Field. I swapped Syrokan for Panache Sport Wireless before Kinect-ing.
Because the band provides most of the support, I need a smaller band and a slightly taller cup for proper support.
