It seemed to run a little bit small, and I found the two sets of hooks in the back to be very difficult to manage so that the bra was very difficult to get on. If you can deal with that though it's a well-made bra. Meredith from USA

This is the closest I've been able to get to a "regular" sports bra since I sized out of those. I really like the fit, but it can be hard to get hooked, especially with the back hooks being separated. It doesn't completely eliminate movement, but it does about the best I could possibly expect. Definitely a good option for larger chested women. MJ

I had high hopes for this bra, based on the reviews. However, I was shocked by how small it ran on me! I am a true 34HH, and I think about half of each breast was sticking out of the side of the cups. Kat from USA

I like the fit. There is almost no moving around but it's not uncomfortable either. Seems to fit true to size. It's my go to sports bra now. Ashley from Canal Winchester, OH, USA

Compared to my Shock Absorber D+ Max Support bras, this racerback bra is medium-level support at best. The mesh racerback panel is very stretchy, so the band doesn't offer as much support as I'd like, and there's quite a bit of bounce. So I only use this bra for low or medium impact workouts (yoga and dumbbells). On a positive note, the stretch mesh does make closing that top row of hooks easier, once you get the hang of it.

Great compression without too much uni-boob going on. The dual clasps, while slightly difficult to put on, really do their job to stop the wiggle. Submitted from TheUndies.com

This bra really holds me in place when I run. No bouncing!!! I makes a real difference. I do find that I need to do the upper hooks before putting it on, then do the lower hooks. Similarly, to take it off, I undo the lower hooks then pull it over my head, Bonnie from U.S.

I love this bra!!! I was so excited to find a bra in my size that was actually cute and colorful (I got the purple one). I also never seem to be able to find racer back style sports bras in my style, so I often have the problem of straps sliding off--pretty annoying during a workout. The system on this one makes it so that does not happen. Amy from Philadelphia

Perfect. My holy grail of sports bras. I have been wearing this for the last 4 years and could probably get another year out of it. Really holds the girls in, even during sprints. Erica from Brooklyn

The cups are to small but since I have the largest cup size offered, I will deal with it for now. It does offer good support for yoga but wearing it for the day I did have to readjust a few times since they got smooshed together. Genny from MI

I found this item didn't provide nearly enough support for larger breasts. I also dislike that it just squishes everything together in a horrible round uni-boob. I would not recommend this bra for women with larger breasts intending to do medium-high impact activities. Melissa

PROS: - Fits my 36FF chest just fine. - No chafing. - Chest isn't sore after my 5 mile runs every day. - Looks cute enough to not wear a shirt with it, if you like. CONS: - A tiny bit difficult to put on because of the top hooks. - Not ideal for very high impact activity (ex: plyometrics). - Slight uniboob-age. All in all, this suits my purposes just fine. You can run and do yoga and pilates in this thing, no problem. But if you're looking for something to stop all movement, this bra isn't the one. Still, a very good bra and totally worth the price.

This is a great bra for high intensity workouts. The fit on the band was snug so if you are an in-between size, you might want to consider going with the bigger size. However, after a few uses, it has settled in well for me and doesn't feel so tight. I use it when I run and also for HIIT and have noticed no bounce, chaffing, or discomfort. A big bonus is that is that its easy to put on and take off. Aks from India

I love this sports bra. It lends the right support for vigorous workouts without feeling too constrictive. It offers a very good fit and is comfortable to wear. Val from Manalapan, NJ

Great support, especially for high intensity exercises (running, HIIT, etc). A little tricky to get that 2nd snap closed, but worth it for a supportive racer-back bra. Love. smm from San Francisco, CA

I desperately wanted a running bra that would not make me sweat uncontrollably and that would hold me in. This got good reviews. I just wish HerRoom was clearer on ordering that this was UK sizes, not US sizes. I ended up with a cup that was 34I, not 34G. It is 34G UK, not 34G US. It feels a bit loose across the top of my breast, but I'll get used to it I guess.

Shock Absorber Response: We apologize you had a negative experience with this style. This style comes in the fuller cup sizes and offers maximum support when the fabric fits properly to the breasts.

HerRoom Response: Please refer to the sizing chart to order your correct size. This will show you the Universal Cup Size for this brand. K from Atlanta
