Dont be fooled by the enthusiastic reviews

At first very comfortable and supportive (I'm on the larger side). In fact I liked it so much I bought another - and they are NOT cheap.
I've owned mine for about 9 months now and the straps detach EVERY single time I wear it - not great when sprint training! So it's in the bin and it's friend will join it soon. All in all it was great, but not for very long. I guess if you have money to burn then this is the bra for you! Oh and it gets a bit sweaty too...
Looks great, very comfortable, expensive but ultimately not a good buy as you can't wear a bra that unfastens itself.

Fabulous!

Comfortable, no movement at all whilst running etc, washes well, fits well (although i have always found with all sports bras to buy the next size up)
Can be a little fiddly doing the two fastenings up but once you have mastered it it is very easy. I tend to find doing the top bikini style clasp up first and then doing the hook and eye works the best.
So fabulous I have two of these for when the other is in the wash, wouldn't buy any other style/brand as have found this to be the best by miles.

Brilliant

I am a 30 E so a fuller cup bra with excellent support running . The bra also dries quickly a great feature for those of us who do triathlon and find the tri siuts just don't offer the correct level of support needed for the run leg.
Can be a bit awkward to finally get off if you are doing a triathlon and fingers become cold!

Great bra but be open-minded and prepared to go for a different size!

Comfortable, supportive and doesn't chafe. Fits brilliantly and looks great.
Very pricey for a single item of kit. Had to save up for it!
I'm a 36B but had to go for a 36A in this bra, as the B cup was a bit baggy around my breasts. Other than that it's great, looks brilliant and is the most comfortable sports bra I've ever worn.

Worth the money in the short term but be prepared to replace if you're bigger than average!

This is a great bra to run in; very supportive, minimal bounce; easy to wash; looks nice
The back strap hooks on mine are gradually splitting away from their seam. This is fine for the first couple as I can select a different hook, but will soon have to replace. I can only assume this is because of the continuous impact. I've had it 4 months and run twice a week.
Not a bad bra for middle sizes but not sure it's quality withstands the impact of a 'fuller' bust!
