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.

Brilliant. Does the job

Works great
Slightly diddly to get on at first.
Perfect.

Holds everything in place, no pain or discomfort when running.
It he weird top clip I do thst up first then put it on over my head then do up the hook n eye. I find it's quicker to do it this way.

Wear it on every run from 5k upwards I've run a couple of marathons in them without any problems.

Worth the money

Love the colours, the bra is comfortable to wear and I've had no problems with any rubbing or chafing.
It is expensive. The sizing runs small and it can be a little difficult to get fastened up on your own. Leave the clip in the centre back fastened and put it on over your head!
I really like this bra overall, and would buy another one. I just hope it lasts a while as it wasn't cheap!

Definitely the best bra for running - Its name says it all and doesn't lie

Wide band and wide straps = super comfortable and yet perfect support. Fits just right so long as you make sure to choose the right size (so bra fitting maybe required just to make sure), but then no chaffing. Reflective details show through light vest / t-shirt which is great. I guess it could be worn on its own as well, though I don't. No problem with it going in washing machine. Durable, strong. Love the fabric, that doesn't make you feel drenched...
None in my opinion, other than the price!
The only Run Bra worthy of the name in my opinion!
