Great appearance but not fit for purpose

It is extremely comfortable - lovely fabric, no protuding bit to cause irritation, fab colours, and can we worn by itself by the daring.
Absolutely zero support.
I am a 34C and ordered the medium, as recommended by the Sportjock website. The raspberry colour was really fun and I was thrilled when it arrived. Sadly, after trying it on I realised I couldn't even run to the bus to it, let alone do a marathon! I am extremely disappointed as I will have to get a refund and go back on the hunt for a decent sports bra.

boing boing boing B'DOING boing boing BOING ... (that's what 36B sounds like when it bounces)

Comfortable. Doesn't look like a major piece of civil engineering. Simple. Good choice of colours.
Doesn't work for me. OK for climbing, hillwalking, yoga and cycling; nowhere near enough support for running. I am a 36B so not particularly big-busted.
I bought the Medium (32" - 36") A-C model of this bra. I'm 36B and run between 40 and 50 miles per week. Sadly this bra is useless for running in; offering approximately the same level of minimal support as a tank top with a basic shelf bra. I have previously worn M&S (fantastic performance, great VFM) and Shock Absorber (great performance, hideously expensive) bras for running: the SportJock bra does not come close to even a 2 year old M&S bra in a comparative bounce test. I had high hopes for the Sportjock, and am surprised at how poorly it performed after so many people have raved about it. I suppose that you can't have it all - that nice soft fabric and the lack of copious volumes of industrial-strength elastic comes at the price of effective support.

Love this bra - so comfortable!

Very comfortable, fits closely but not tightly. No jiggle, and even easy to get on and off.
Only con is I couldn't find any of the jazzy colours its advertised as coming in - so ended up with a sensible black.
Highly recommended for small cup sized runners.

Very comfortable, good level of support and nice colours!

- Comes in a range of sizes and colours
- Very comfortable when on
- Doesn't leave red marks
- Fits well under running gear and doesn't create any odd bulges
- There is still some bounce, though less than I've found with any other style
- If you exercise frequently, needs replacing on every 6 months or so
I find this bra comfortable and have never tried on a style I preferred or that fitted better.

Due to the amount of weight I've lost since taking up running I've worn this bra (in the appropriate size) as a 36DD, a 34B and everying in between. I would encourage larger chested women to give it a go as it's surprisingly supportive.

COMFORTABLE, GOOD LOOKING AND EASY TO WEAR

Slips off & on easily. Looks good as a training top on it's own. Supportive without squashing you totally flat.
The double band elastic at the bottom leaves me feeling bruised afterwards
I really like this bra, it's comfortable when running and very nicely supportive. For someone with a very small chest it still leaves some shape too. The discomfort caused by the elastic appears to only happen after running (tested up to 8 miles so far) - a short while after taking it off I start to feel slightly bruised (imagine an = symbol all around your ribcage). I would buy it again though and would recommend it. A bit of tenderness on my ribs for a short while afterwards is an easy downside to live with.
