A short followup. This bra wears exceptionally well. I've used it over and over again with no problems or wear. I highly recommend this bra. Fantastic support. I use it for running as well as weight/cardio workouts three or more times per week. Very good investment. Trick to the back hook system is to leave the top hooks connected then slip it over your head and you should find it pretty easy to connect the bottom. If you don't, you'll need some help. In my hunt for running/workout/horseback riding type bras, I tried at least 5 or 6 different brands -- this works best for me. Good luck hunting!

I tried this out, and it runs differently than my other regular and/or sports bras. My typical 34D was too small. I may retry with a larger band size. The closure on the straps looks very handy to keep the straps in place and to look good in sleeveless athletic wear. I found myself unable to hook it closed. Not sure if a better fit would help, or if it requires more flexibility than I possess!

Does not do very much shock absorbing. I bounce all over the place with this bra. Disappointing.

This was my third and final try for this bra. I started with my regular size, 34G, and within the same order got a 36FF as well just in case. I couldn't even clasp the 34, not even close. The 36 I had to clasp it around the front and then twist it back to the back like an 11 year old. Once I had it on correctly, the coverage was nuts. I felt like I was wearing a chest plate and I needed to joust with someone in one of those old school horsefight things. It was up too close to my armpits, higher than any tank or tee I would wear while working out, and the uni-boob was off the charts! Maybe if I was running a marathon this thing would be great, but for even rigorous gym workout and heavy cardio, I think it's just to much to deal with. I even ordered in a 38F and the band was still snug, and the coverage was the same. All 3, goodbye. May the search continue.

By far my favorite sports bra. I've recently resumed running and wanted to get a couple new sports bras. I'm a 38D in this one and most regular bras as well. I already had on of these that I really liked, but I decided to try several of the bras highly rated for D+ sizes. None of them worked as well for me as this one did - those went back and ordered another of these. I marked it down one star for comfort, but not sure that's completely fair because I've never found any sports bra that was something you'd want to wear for longer than necessary, though this one is pretty close.

Runs very small. Ordered 2 sizes, both larger than I wear, and neither worked. Can't advise how much larger one should order, but it's really small.

I love that this bra has large cup options and can be worn with racerback tops. I hate that it only goes up to a 38. I need a 40.

This bra is true to size, fits extremely snug like it's supposed to. It keeps me in place. I'm a 36G and didn't realize there was a bra that could allow me to run and jump with being all over the place.

I am unfortunately really hard to fit for a bra, and when it comes to sports bras it's really hard to find something that will work. This one looked like it had the support and the zipper, which I need when running. When I tried it out, the straps didn't dig into my shoulders or feel like they would give me back problems, which is a good thing. But the overall support isn't enough to keep everything from jiggling around. So, this one is going back and I'll try shopping somewhere else.

While I feel that this would be a very supportive bra, it's clearly not built for wide-shouldered women. I wear a 36DD and have pretty large shoulders, and the amount that the straps pulled and pinched my back and shoulders was extremely uncomfortable.

This is my number 2 running bra. With that being said, I still love this bra. No chafing. Wish it had a wider band around the bottom but other than that it is a great bra! Highly recommend.

I ordered it because of the zipper, easier to get on and off. Unfortunately the base of the zipper rubs against skin when I run, caused much irritation. It does run a little small, but it certainly provides adequate support - no bouncing at all. Would also be better if shoulder strap length were adjustable, found them to be a little short. Was disappointed and returned the item.

Not as much support as some of the other shock absorber models (this company is fantastic), but also a little less like a girdle. Definitely a must for any woman with a bigger than D cup!

Painful. Band is REALLY small. If you plan on breathing during your workout then definitely size up. I will not be re-ordering because I don't think the fit is right anyway. I bought the classic too which fit better but was defective, shoulder strap detached when trying on.

I was looking for a sports bra in my proper size. I did try a couple of different brands and styles from Zappos, but this one was my favorite by far! Keep in mind it is a very snug fit but I think that is necessary in this case. The top clasp (there are two) can be a bit of a challenge to hook but I think having the extra clasp helps with minimizing movement.

I do Crossfit and this is the ONLY bra I can wear. Nothing moves. Amazing support. Don't have to 'readjust' in the middle of a workout. Put it on and go no worries. It does run tight in the band so you might want to size up and cup-size down since they don't stretch much. Definitely recommend for those DD+!

This bra is amazing, I am breastfeeding so my boobs can be bigger or smaller at times also they are heavy. This is the best sports bra out there. I have tried so many and none compare to this one.

I saw this in Runner's World and since sports bras are pretty much the hardest thing about being a female runner, wanted to try it. It was suggested in the C/D category and I'm a DD, so it might be a better fit for someone in that size bracket, but it wasn't great for me. Too much compression, not enough support, unfortunately. I also think the front close would be a problem--because it compressed my boobs so much it made a hard cleavage line between them, and the fabric meant to protect you from the zipper was no longer able to do its job. Oh, well. Shock Absorber has other bras I like for short runs, so I guess I'm sticking with them. I'm still hunting for something that will work for long runs, though.

I read about this bra in Runner's World and decided to try it out. It is super comfy and easy to put on and take off. I found myself wrestling my old bras to get them off after a sweaty workout. This one unzips and comes off easily.

This is the best sports bra I've worn in years. I'm a 30HH so it's really hard to find a bra that reduces bouncing and fits me well. The only complaint I have is that the band is a little tight and can restrict breathing a bit, but not so much that it prevents me from working out.

This is my FAVORITE sports bra of all time, and I've been through a lot. It provides great support for tennis, aerobics, biking, whatever I do. I'm 34 F-G, and I get a minimum of bouncing with this bra.
