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!

less bounce for your buck!

Brilliant support, quite a good level of "compression" and infinitely less bounce than my old M&S one! Tried it out today for the 1st test run - only a little 2.5 miler but I didn't have to hold the girls in place!

So comfortable to wear, no rubbing, no chaffing, brilliantly padded straps and lovely wide straps too.
A little bit fiddly to get the main hook/eye fastening done up due to the level of compression but once you master that bit, no cons at all!
Brilliant. We'll see how it goes as I get to use it on longer runs but fingers crossed that it stays as brilliant as it is now!

Great control but a little small on the back size

I really found that this reduced movement to virtually nothing.
I found that back size quite small, even though I'd ordered my regular size. A little bit tricky to fasten.
Behaves as it should, looks good but it might be worth ordering a size bigger around the back.

Loved the fabric,though it could be more breathable,there is a SERIOUS DESIGN FAULT,which makes it unreliable.

Soft fabric, hardly any rubbing or bounce.
I have used several Shock Absorber bras and always loved them. This specific model seems to have a design problem.Once the bra gets really wet the strap tends to get off the hook leaving you with one strap only. I have tried to fix it and before wearing my shirt I sort of test it, but no matter how careful I am at the 3rd 4th mile the strap comes off the hook and I am left running with one strap only. I thought it was only me, but from the previous reviews I can see that this is indeed a design problem and I am surprised that this is happening to a ShockAbsorber bra.
Nice soft feeling, but not reliable. I wish I could get my money back.
