Probably the best sports bra I've tried - it even beats the old style M & S (but only just)

Snug and secure fit, not a hint of a chafe anywhere. I had no problem with any of the clasps or clips but did put it on with the top clasp already done up and slipped it over my head.It didn't feel at all sweaty whilst it was on, though it had a good bashing as I had done a 16 miler for its inaugural trial! I'm a 38B and am pleased to announce that the bounce was virtually eliminated! Washed and dried easily.
I was very conscious of the top clasp whilst wearing it - but suspect that was only because it was unfamiliar.
Great bra - had been intending to try one for ages and now wish I had done before. Just beats the old M&S which did chafe the underside of my right arm very slightly on the longer runs. If you shop around you can get this bra at a very competitive price. I will definately be buying another of these.

love it when it's not coming undone! This design fault lets down what would be a perfect bra.

No bounce
Fits well
Looks good alone
Lots of adjustment
The adjustable strap KEEPS coming unhooked
The glued bit to provide the adjustment is now coming unstuck which means that it unhooks even faster
Hard to do up until you get used to it
When the strap is firmly in place it is the best bra I have ever used for running in. I'm fairly well endowed and since losing a lot of weight I NEED a lot of support and this bra provides it without just squashing me totally flat.
I haven't found the bra makes me particularly sweaty.
I can't recommend this bra as the problem with the strap is just too much of a design fault. Please shock absorber can we have one exactly the same but with a strap that works!

Great fit.. No movement and no chaffing. BUT difficult to fasten both the top clasp and the back strap..

Support, fit, no movement no chaffing
difficult to fasten... the clasp at the top is great for support but it very fiddly.. The bra strap part is difficult to fasten.. I dont think its lnog enough... its designed to be tight but as a consequence you cant get enough grip on the strap to fasten it.. But aside all that.. I rate it very highly...
Good product

This is a comfortable bra and it fits well but it is sweaty and keeps undoing itself.

It fits and supports well but had to superglue the fastenings to stop it undoing.
Comes undone and the double layer makes you quite sweaty.
It has lots of adjustments in the strap to enable you to get a good fit but unfortunately these don't stay fastened. I wouldn't buy another
