I bought the black version of this bra a few years ago and loved it but then I lost some weight and it was just too big so I thought I'd treat myself to a new one. I'm now a 28FF in everything so I thought this would fit perfectly. How wrong I was! It's like I bought 2 sizes too small. It won't even fit all the way round my back and the cup is too small. I know it should be tight so there isn't any movement but this is ridiculous. I'm having to go in store now to try one on as I'm totally confused about what I should buy for this sports bra. :(
Yes, I would recommend this product.

I have never owned a sports bra before but since becoming more active on the Wii and wanting to take up running I knew I needed proper support with being a 36HH! I ordered this bra after reading all the positive reviews and it arrived 2 days later!! This is a fantastic, well supportive sports bra which is comfortable as well as strong. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a well priced and extremely supportive bra. Thanks Bravissimo, great customer service as always.

I wear this one in HH and it's the best sports bra I've ever had. Firm support, even for jogging. If - like me - you've almost given up on finding a really snug sports bra that can handle it all, try this one.

Fantastic bra. It holds everything in place but enough room to jump about in. Had to go up a cup size but no issue. Certainly recommend it!

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Fantastic support, snug fit
I bought this bra the other day after I caught my reflection while wearing an old sports bra and being horrified by the amount of bouncing that was going on. Just went on my first run with this one - what a huge difference! All the upper back ache I'd been putting down to bad posture has completely vanished, I've never felt so supported by a sports bra - and all without underwires! The straps are a little fiddly, but they seem to distribute support very effectively once on. My only real criticism is that the sizes are a bit off. I'm normally a 30E, but had to take a 30FF in this (the 30E was so tight it somehow gave me cleavage!) so maybe be aware of this if buying online. Otherwise perfect - can't wait to properly test it in my half marathon next weekend :)

I have bought the shock absorber for years and never found anything nearly as supportive for long distance running and high impact workouts. However, my latest purchase was thinner material and noticeably less supportive when training. Have you changed the product at all? It's such a shame because when I compared my new bra to my old ones it was noticeably different on the lining and the thickness/strength of the material. The bra is now also more expensive! Please let me know if the old make is still available.

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 a comfortable sports bra that comes up a little smaller in the cup
This is a little small but I am wearing it anyway and it is soo comfortable. I will buy another immediately but it will be one cup size larger.. I wish there were a shop in Sydney so I check if I should be a back size larger as well. Doing it up is hard but just possible.

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Great support!
Best sports bra I have ever bought, I even have it in both sizes and wouldn't hesitate to buy another one. Great support for someone with big boobs so I now have more confidence to run without worrying about any bounce etc. The clasps are an issue though and I do have to do up the top two and then pull it on over my head and then do up the second two, not too much of a problem but worth considering, especially as on my older bra the clasps have become out of shape as a consequence. However I am more than happy to overlook this!
