I was reasonably confident of my bra size when I ordered this bra, so was surprised when it was so uncomfortably tight. Not just that there is also some spillage. A small amount on the cleavage and under the arms. So I measured myself again just to make sure that Xmas/ New Year and a recent cold (restricting exercise and increasing food in take) hadn't adversely affected my size. Yes, there was a small difference, but not enough to account for the tightness, discomfort and spillage. My measurements are only 1/2 an inch different e.g 30.5 and 36 instead of 30 and 35.5.
My main concern/ issue with this bra though is the shape it gives you. It's not flat or pointed it's sort of an upward round surrounded by the spill. Weird.
Also, does it give the support claimed? No. I have a number of shock absorber bras and even the bras that are supposed to support you less actually support more!!
On a positive note, from visual perspective (but not how it looks on) this looks like a good quality/well made bra. Just a shame it doesn't live up to expectations.
Basically I opted for this bra because it is half the price of the Shock Absorber equivalent. Would I make the same choice again? No, I'd rather pay the extra money.
