Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ducks Scaffolding for running
I'm still 'wearing it in' but I love the style of it and it seems to keep my boobs in place as I run! Good quality and I hope it will last me a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BasicJogger96 Really Effective Sports Bra
Perfect for running, really effective, is a bit tight but thats exactly what you want really with a sports bra.
Relatively cheap as well for a good sports bra, worth the money, and good range of colours too

Rated 4 out of 5Â by EB33 Rigby & Peller 32D ... Sweaty Betty 36B
This is a great sports bra, but so pleased I tried it on in store, in the same week went to Rigby and Peller and am 32D, but the 32 in this sports bra was so tight ended up buying 36B having tried on about 8 sizes! Very glad I didn't order on line.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nicsteed5 Best high impact sports bra I've ever had
Just amazing... great support, fab range of colours - I love it! And much easier to get in to than most max support sports bras thanks to the clever little clip on the straps at the back which you can do up after you have it on (to make it in to a really supportive racer back). I plan to get this in more colours as soon as I can afford it - I absolutely love it but it's pricey to buy more than one at a time.

I use this bra for everything (yoga, running etc). It's so comfortable & I now wouldn't buy any other brand. If you make one purchase, make it this.

Fantastic for running as so supportive for a larger bust! (32F)

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Starshopper Cannot buy your usual size
With most sports bras you need to go up a size on the underband and 1 size down on the cup size to keep it the same ie 34FF would buy a 36F. Not with this bra, i'm guessing you would need to go 2 sizes up on the underband and cup size!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by PLR11 It's not bad
This is an OK run bra for the top-heavy. The down side is that the sides of the bra dig into the armpits and cause skin chafing. Also, the hooks are made of a weak metal causing them to break easily. It does the job, but it's not particularly comfy after a while.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JP32 deceptively simple
Doesn't look like much, but this is the best and most supportive sports bra I have ever worn for running. Yes, it's tight - it needs to be! This is not a bra you wear for all day comfort - strap it on, go for a run, then take it off!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sall Best Sports Purchase I Have Ever Made
Having the support of this bra has helped significantly change my work out comfort and stability.
I have never experienced such a comfortable and effective sports bra.
I was really impressed with my local store and the fact that my size was readily available. Being a natural 32E this is something I am not used to and trying to be the right sports bra has been a real struggl until now.
Now I want one in every colour - thanks to sweaty Betty!

Rated 4 out of 5 Great bra!
I don't really run, but after going through the size guide questions this was the only bra recommended for my size so I went with it. I read the reviews first and ordered a size up - I am usually a 32DD, so I ordered a 34DD. It is tight fitting, but it's meant to be and it certainly holds everything in place. I wore it to a yoga class last night and it was quite comfortable, although I think I prefer the straps in the regular position rather than racer back. As others mentioned, I also found it to be a bit squeaky! Hopefully that will change when I wash it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by obstaclecourseaddict Best sweat wicking bra to date
I don't often write a review, but this bra is really very good. I've been looking for decent sweat wicking in a bra and this is the best I've found (although I still think it could improve on that front). I ordered a 36DD instead of my normal size (34DD) based on previous comments and it's perfect. The colour are really nice (I have 4!) and the back is attractive. To comment on previous objections: I don't have any issues with the back closure, it's easier than many others. There is a little bit of a squeaky sound from the closure when you first put it on but it has never bothered me in any of my workouts.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Kat4 Not supportive enough for D cups!
Suitable for low- medium impact activities but does not support D cups enough during high impact activities (running)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MMads One less worry
One less thing to worry about when hitting the gym. I now feel secure when taking high intensity classes like Insanity.
At first I found the fit a little too tight but thats because I hadn't adjusted the straps, and just wasn't used to it, but after one work out its given me another thing to look forward to when in the gym.
Great snug fit, holds everything in (I'm large chested) and makes me look slimmer! Result.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by jovenden nice style but hooks dropped off with lots of use
I wear this top for Bikram yoga. After a couple of months wear and regular washing machine use the hooks which fasten the bra strap came off. I have bought another because I like the shape and have the leggings to match.

After only a few wears the stitching at the back where the bra fastens has already come loose

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Linzpinz good support but straps a little loose
I bought this so that I would have a supportive bra to continue working out in while pregnant. The support is good but only when the straps are in the racer back position, not as normal bra straps. Otherwise, it is very comfy and I'm hoping it will see me through my pregnancy!

Fun, funky, comfortable and flattering. Another great product from Sweaty Betty. Only minor complaint is that it squeaked a lIttle on its first outing. I am hoping that stops after its first wash !

I do a lot of high impact aerobics and have a large cup size, so this is ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bugraker The best sports bra!
My old Shock Absorber bras had given up the ghost after several half marathons and 10Ks so after reading many of the reviews of the ultra run here, I decided to buy one. Following the advice of some reviews, I decided to go up a band size to 34 (normally 32) but stick with my usual E cup and it fits perfectly. It's super supportive and stylish - nothing moves on a training run...and no jiggling about during a kettlebells class!
I bought the slate/primrose colourway - I will definitely be buying a couple more in different colours.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Emskie Great service once again at Bluewater boutique. Fab Ultra Run Bra!
I needed to update my running undewear and so I went for the Ultra Run Bra. I already have this product in Black, so I knew it would be the perfect choice. I went for a more vibrant colour scheme this time (coral and grey). I love it. Hard wearing, comfortable and stylish.
I want to mention the wonderful service I received. The item was not in stock when I visited the Bluewater store and so the sales advisor informed me that she could order the garment and have it sent to my home address free of charge. That was not all, she kindly 'gifted' the socks I was about to purchase as a good will gesture for the inconvenience.
Sweaty Betty.... you rock!

This is a really good sports bra. Fits very snugly which you want in a sports bra. Great design and colours too.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Marsse One size larger perhaps
Beautiful bra/shape for working out but I think I should have chosen the next size up as the underband is a bit too fitting. Perhaps should have bought it in the shop where I could have tried it on.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by GinaL Needs more design work!
I bought this bra as an experiment (I had a money off voucher in recent catalogue). I also trusted the reviewer that wrote that the SB version was as good as Shock Absorber. This bra isn't a patch on the Shock Absorber. I have a small frame (32 back size) but large boobs (FF/G cup). I workout a lot and a good sports bra is a necessity! As such, I've tried every bra out there and only Shock Absorber or Freya's Active sports bra does the job as far as I am concerned.
This is a bad copy of the Shock Absorber D+ Max Sports Bra. The fabric of the SB version is cheap, there are only 2 main hooks to fasten (as opposed to 3 on the SA), you'd have to have ridiculously long arms to be able to fasten the additional racer back hook on the SB version (rendering it pointless) and unlike the SA bra, there is nothing in the lining to separate your boobs so you end up with one massive uni-boob.
I have now returned the bra to my local shop. The colours were great though which made the whole transaction even more disappointing as I wanted to keep the bra on that basis alone.
