I'm on my umpteenth version of this bra. I'm a 36E in this bra (a 36G in Wacoal). I've just run my 17th Half Marathon and would not have been able to do it without this bra. Thank goodness for Shock Absorber. Every now and then I toy with another brand or another size and I always come back to these. These are not the bras for wearing around the house: They are not comfortable except when exercising when they hold everything in place for as long as you need. The material is nice and washes well. These bras last a long time, especially if you wash in a lingerie bag.

This runs VERY small. I wish it had fit. Must return it. The hint about leaving the top clasp closed is the ONLY way to get this lovely bra on!

I have three of these sports bras. In my opinion, they offer the best level of support of any that I have ever had. The clips can be annoying sometimes but I am willing to live with that for the effectiveness. I wear a 34D and the fit is true to size.

Great support and fit. I am a 32 DD and thought that could have gone 34 as it seems it's a size smaller but the cup size is perfect. I love the design, material ( very light but strong) and look.

I ended up returning this. It's not terrible, but I have a cheap champion bra that supports almost as well. I was looking for something that felt significantly more secure, and this is not it. It's nicely made, but the support does not feel worth the price point. As others have said, you need to go up a size when ordering: I'm a band size 30 and it was inches from closing. The 32 fit well, but did not provide enough support.

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+!
