'A "SQUASH 'EM FLAT" TYPE BRA, BUT WORKS FOR ME AS A 38D.'
Strengths: Really squashes the boobs to the chest, so they can't jiggle very much. No complicated fastenings, it just pulls over your head.
Weaknesses: It needs to be tight enough to squash and keep 'em squashed. So if you have the right size, it can be a tad difficult to get on. Also, there is some movement still, which can cause chafing around the neckline, particularly in the summer when you sweat more.
Overall: This is the only sports bra I can get on with. The ones with traditional straps, underwiring and stuff just annoy and rub the hell out of me. The Sportjock just works, mostly. I counter the chafing with some Bodyglide, and I'm happy.
'LIGHT, COMFORTABLE, BUT OK FOR MILD OVERPRONATORS.'
Strengths: Very light upper, a nice thin tongue, laces plenty long enough. Heel cutout just right. Women's version goes up to size 9.
Weaknesses: Colours are never terribly nice, in any year's model I've tried. Can be difficult to get hold of, particularly women's version.
Overall: Having tried a variety of other manufacturer's shoes, I find Mizuno a lot less "clunky" in a fairly neutral shoe than other brands. I adore the Wave Rider, I've had 6 pairs so far, and can't imagine changing.
