I have purchased over a dozen different sports bras and this bra is by far the best for runners with large breasts. I wear this under a sports tank top (with a shelf bra in it) and my breasts do not bounce at all. Make sure you do not dry in the dryer and this will last for a long time
I have used this for running. I am small chested, but pretty wide across the back. Finding a bra that has small enough cups, but isn't too tight in the band can be challenging. Since this bra comes in so many size combination I was able to get a perfect fit! I'm ordering a second one right now.
The liner/padding is not very thick, which I appreciate (all small chested ladies don't feel the need to look any bigger). It's still enough to make it a little 'soggier' than an un-padded sports bra, though. Hence only 4 stars...
Perfect fit for me
I needed a sports bra that would give my "girls" great support while running. The Bra Fit Expert at the RRS retail store in San Diego helped me find my perfect fit. I tried on 3 different sports bras, and ultimately the Champion Shaped T back was my perfect fit. As a 34B, this bra gives me the support I need, but with no adjustable components it may not fit every woman. Not to worry though; the bra fit experts at RRS can help every woman find their perfect fit!

great fit for me!
I am a runner and was looking for a good supportive bra. I was fitted by the wonderful Bra Fit Expert in the RRS store in San Diego. I tried on 3 different styles, but chose this one because it fit me just right, and met my running supportive needs. The drawback to this bra is that it doesn't have any adjustable components, so it won't be a perfect fit for all women. No worries though; the Ladies at RRS can help you find your best fitting sports bra!

I used to like these and have accumulated a few. But I think the latest design made the cup size too small. I don't like the fact it flattens the bust. Not because I think jogging should be a fashion show, but because it's just uncomfortable. The bra flattens and pushes the bust together. Although it feels tight, it doesn't actually control bounce all that much. The T straps encroach on the neck.
I would pass.
I am constantly searching for a sports bra that is lined, stylish, and has the right amount of coverage. This bra has all of that. It is lightly lined for "modesty," looks cute in the gym, and isn't too high- or low-cut in the front. The fact that it comes in actual bra sizes is a bonus as well, so you can get the right band and cup fit.

Performance Plus Support
I've used this winner for many years. It is the single most comfortable piece of performance clothing I have ever owned. I love the cut and the materials hold up forever. It's attractive enough to wear alone or under layers.
Gretat for padded bra
I owned two pairs of bra. I love the first one and when road runner put it on daily treat, I have to get a second pair. I love the lightly padded cups that give you enough coverage with a good ventilation and at the same time give you enough support for running.

Great Running Bra
This is the best sports bra I have ever bought. I run half marathons and it stays put on the long runs. I am a solid B cup and have no difficulty with the "girls" staying in place. It really is true to size. It lasts forever, I have washed mine a thousand times. Never leave home on a run without it!
I use this for running specifically. It has great support. I love the thinner straps and racerback style. You may have difficulty taking it off if you have bad shoulders, but otherwise not a big deal.

This sports bra is excellent for running! This is my favorite sports bra as it doesn't cause chafing on my long runs, provided you get the right size! I run everyday and it has excellent durability.

This bra is great support for running. It is easy to get into and out of, because you don't have adjust straps or deal with a back closure. The cups seem to be molded for shape and modesty.

I have tried on a lot of sport bras and am super picky about good support. This bra is awesome and very comfortable. It's great to find a bra for a 34 C cup that isn't bouncy or that has to be too tight to get the right support.

Does What Every Good Bra Should
Running down hills keeps me in place with this bra. Of all the ones I've tried this one keeps all in place without crushing them to my chest. I bought a second I was so happy with it!
Great Support for Running
This is one of my favorite workout bras. I am small busted, but I still like good support when I run, and this is it! It also gives a nice smooth line under clothing.
Great Sports bra
I am a teenager and have 3 of these bras for basketball. I really like everything about this bra except the seam in the center of the the cup. Otherwise fantastic!
Yes! Perfect sports bra!
I use this for kickboxing, strength training and running. I am pretty small chested but really like to have.... well I will just say it...nipple coverage that this bra provides. Most bras that have ample coverage in my opinion are cuppy and I have nothing to fill it. Another good portion of bras have the padded inserts that keep popping out in the wash. I am glad this bra has neither a cup nor pads that pop out, just a perfectly placed seam and a slightly thicker fabric across the chest. I appreciated the reviews before me as I couldnt agree more with the positive feedback. I would LOVE to see more color choices in stock for 32B:)
Strong and Comfortable
I usually feel the need to wear a bra top and a aport tank... with this I can just wear the bra top with a regular tank or a T-shirt!
Real Comfortable Sports Bra
This bra provides me with good support while I go
jogging and is one of the most comfortable sports
bras I've ever owned.
My favorite travel/24 hour shift bra
I LOVE this bra and have several (size 34A). It's awesome for travel because it packs easily and, because it's not flattening, it can be worn under a variety of clothing, and for almost any activity. I also wear it when I'm going to be on 24 hour shifts or working in a more physically demanding setting. It is my go-to, non-underwire bra. However: As far as sports are concerned, I'm a runner and a road cyclist and I do not like this bra for either activity. I find it's not enough support for running, for which I prefer a higher impact rating. (I prefer traditional high-compression, flattening tops for this to minimize chafing and discomfort--past models CH2676, CH6619, or my favorite 24870 worked great, especially the ones with claps because I could get the dang things off at the end of a long workout. If I'm traveling and want to be prepared for any activity and just want to take one or two bras, the Show-Off is more supportive than the Shape if I need to take a non-flattening bra, though I'm not a huge fan of the mesh at the neck.) The shape is also too hot/heavy for serious cycling, for which I wear a lightweight, crop-top style sports bra because I don't need much support to move forward in a straight line.

Horrible Seam Placement!!!
I'm a 36B and the 36B in this style fit perfectly. No bounce and super comfy; HOWEVER, there is a seam on the front of each cup that shows through any type of thin wicking fabric top (i.e.--the Champion vapor tees). No "headlight" issues due to great padding, but I'll be saving this bra for winter runs when the hoodies and thicker layers come on.

Love this bra. It provides perfect support without flattening and doesn't cause chafing.

Flattering sports bra
I love that there is a sports bra the not only provides the support I need but is also flattering. No more uni-breast
Great support and look
I have owned a lot of sport bras. I keep coming back to this style. I am a distance runner with a small (ish) chest. I have used this style for nearly 6 years after throwing away ,only on other styles and brands. It wears well, cups are true to size. Band might be a little snug for size but not enough to switch. It maintains shape, avoids bounce. Only drawback is it is a classic pull on type with no straps- but I like that - I have had tons of trouble with adjustable ones digging in on long sweaty runs or in cardio fitness classes.
Just what I needed
I have been buying the Shape Bra for a decade and I keep coming back because the fit is perfect and the look is well...even more perfect. I need support as I do lots of trail running down steep hills and I like kick boxing and bootcamp classes. I like a bra that can stand up to what I do and this Bra always has...Just wish there were more colors offered.

Not what expected
I bought this bra for running. Overall, it provides great support which I'm not large chested but do not like any "bounce". However, I was dissapointed with the craftmanship. The seams of the bra overlap each other which end up rubbing. I definitely could feel it rubbing my back. I thought maybe washing the bra it would make a difference but it didn't. Unless you want to end up with rub spots on your back, I would not recommend.
Good fit and support
To prevent any rubbing in the armpit and to get the support I need for running, I had to go down a size. Therefore it's a little tight around the band, a little difficult to get off, and really flattens the bust. However, nothing is rubbing or moving around when I'm running - exactly what I was looking for! The cut is kind of "sexy" without as much coverage as I'm used to, but there is no impact on performance.
perfect run bra
I love this bra. I bought a few years ago and have worn them to pieces. I've tried other brands/styles but struggle with chafing or not enough padding. This bra is perfect - good support for all types of high impact exercise, a slight amount of built-in padding to ensure a smooth look, and I've never had chafing wearing this style. Highly recommend.

Supportive and Comfortable - This One Is A Keeper
I got this bra in the mail yesterday and wore it today and I love it. For one, great support for the girls and, second, keeps things demure in this cold weather. I wore it to work and it was comfortable all day (and it kept me warm, too). For a pull-on bra, I was very impressed with the fit - the back isn't pulled up so that the band in back is higher than the band in front, the straps don't dig into my shoulder blades. There is some individual support and protection for the girls. I went with a 38B - I have broad shoulders so the width is all across my back and shoulders. I just ordered two more. Definitely will be my go-to bra just about everyday for work, for the gym, for riding my horse, for my yoga class and just about everything else.

My go-to sports bra
I have had 5 or 6 of these bras for at least 10 years. They last and last, but sadly, they are finally showing their age. I ordered more and I have to say that I am quite impressed by the consistency of style and quality through the years. Great support without completely flattening you and very comfortable. Yes, there is a seam down the front of each cup, but for me it really had no show through even with very lightweight top layers. I ordered 32C which is my normal size and they fit well, although tighter than my old bras - of course that might be because of some stretching out over ten years :-) Overall, I've never found a better sports bra for me at any price level.
