Very supportive, but fell to pieces!

Hardly felt myself move whilst running, very supportive, almost too much! Next size up too big, so opted for a 36 which was restrictive on chest!
Fell to pieces within a couple of months! Hook and eyes fell out, stitching fell apart! Difficult to get on and off!
Good for the support you need running but although seems good quality when first bought, doesn't hold up to the rigours of a regular runner! None of the sizes i tried on fitted well! Still looking for the perfect bra, this certainly for me isn't it sadly!

Total support - total quality

The most supportive running bra I've had. No movement at all. Once I'm out running I can forget about it completely. I have two now and both still look like new despite plenty of use. Great quality product.
It is snug, and I agree with the reviewer who said to leave the centre back clip done up and put it on over your head. I also always need to untwist the straps, but then I'm all set.
Easily my first choice, wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

Great bra. A bit tight initially which interfered with breathing but very sturdy, no bounce!

No bounce and feels secure. Worth the extra money.
Bit tight, even though I bought the right size.
Great bra, but would need to buy bigger back size.

Poor quality, unreliable and prohibitively uncomfortable. Would not recommend.

Initially seems to control movement very effectively.
Poor quality, restrictive fit, straps frequently come undone during exercise, difficult to get on and off.
I bought this bra a couple of years ago and also had to throw it away: the band around the chest was so tight that it interfered with my breathing to a point where I struggled to complete my workout. The back fastenings also started to unravel in multiple places after very few uses, which was not the level of resilience I expected from a relatively expensive bra. I would not recommend unless Berlei does something to improve the fit and durability of this product.

Major problem when the strap sometimes coming undone during run. Chucked it out.

is very supportive. Solid.
coming undone! Has never happened with any other running bra, and I've been running for 20 years.

quite fiddly to put on.

Hot.
I saw the great reviews, bought one of these and it seemed fine, if a bit hot and fiddly to put on. But I couldn't believe it when the strap pinged out during a run. I found somewhere to go and adjust it (had to stop and walk half a mile to public toilets). It happened again, and again - maybe every third run, so I threw it away. Terrible design.
