Overall Review: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1/5 Painful, no support
Firstly, a tip for trying this on: do up the lower band at your smallest section e.g. waist, then pull up. I bought my regular bra size and tried to put it on normally (doing up the lower band behind my back) - couldn't even get close. Determined to try it, I did it up as above and to my surprise found the band to be a perfect, comfortable (not even tight) fit. The second clasp was easy. However, the state of my chest was shocking - it compresses your breasts COMPLETELY flat and is very painful. There was also the worst quadraboob you can imagine, as it doesn't come up high enough, and jiggling all over. For a split second I considered a bigger cup, but this is a compression top that already failed to prevent movement (I wouldn't dare jump in this for the pain, so just swayed a bit to test), so a looser fit wouldn't help. I think SA make the nicest looking (when unworn) sports bras available for big cups, but they aren't fit for purpose. Fingers crossed the Inspire comes back soon!

Now I have a well fitting supportive bra I can't really avoid the gym! It is super supportive, I feel really secure and it keeps my boobs out of my way while I am exercising. I had to go up a back size in this bra as in my usual 30 back I could barely do it up, but after I went up to the 32 it was perfect.

The waist was too small! I use 28 but this is insane!!! This can not fit a child! I have to use two extenders to be able to use it. I recomend trying it in a shop and not buy online, like I did...

I love this sports bra and I have bought many of these over the years. I was super excited when this new color came out, it makes me feel like going for a run and being active. When I work out I prefer my boobs to be strapped in very tightly so they don't move at all, therefore, I went down a few cup sizes in this bra and then it is absolutely perfect!

Overall Review: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1 out of 5 1/5 Bad support
I would have loved this beautifyl pink bra. However, it didn't give me much support and I had some issues with sizing as well. I usually wear 30GG, but based on my previous experience on Shock Absorber I decided to try 32G and 32GG. 32 was indeed the right band size for me, but oddly, even 32G was too big in the cup. Because this bra seemed much less supportive than the D+ Max Sports Bra I've been wearing before I decided to return this one and order a new D+ Max instead.

Overall Review: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3 out of 5 3/5 Good bra, but get it fitted!
I bought this to have as a second sports bra as I have been doing more running recently, and was relying on my old Max Sports bra, which I've had for a few years. This is a different style to the original, more of a crop top and does look nice. It doesn't 'lift and separate' so it does flatten your boobs somewhat, but is very comfortable to wear. The support however, isn't as good, I get a lot more bounce with it as there is more room in it due to its shape. I read the reviews and went down a cup size AND tried it on in the store, but now wish I had asked for a second opinion - too much give means less support, but I didn't find that out until I had done a run in it, after which it was too late to return it. I will wear it, but only for short jogs, I couldn't recommend it for high impact exercise.

I always buy shock absorber sports bra's for working out. The support is superb. This is also the case with the max sports bra. (Un)fastening the double set of hooks takes a bit of getting used to though. The colour is great. I find the bra true to size.
