A few testers noted that what the Nike Pro Sports Bra (R300) does is smoosh two boobs into one; but that’s what gives the strong grip-fit.
The bra is simple to just slip on over the head, with a racer back and flat seams that give a full range of motion. The Nike Dri-Fit microfibre polyester fabric wicks sweat away so the tight fit doesn’t trap too much extra heat.

The Shock Absorber Run (R560) turned some of our more negative D-cup testers positive again.
“After years of despondency, I now believe in support bras,” grinned a satisfied tester.
The encapsulated design features targeted Infinity-8 support (each breast is supported in its own cup) and significantly reduced both up-and-down and side-to-side movement during running. But some testers did have problems with one strap tending to come off its hook.

The silicon-padded support in the straps of the Triumph Tri-action Elite Sport Crop Top (R390) were immediately well received by testers with fuller busts.
On longer runs the overall support was even more noticeable; strap adjustment was easy, though straps are a little short.
The wide underband is also adjustable, contributing to custom fitting.
