I love THIS bra!!! It gives incredible support, AND good separation/shape. It's very easy to hook the two straps together to get a racerback, too. After trying (a TON of) other sports bras, I've finally found the one that offers all the features I wanted in one bra. It was worth the wait (of being backordered and exchanged for size)!! (One note: I like a snug band--especially on a sports bra--so I tried quite a few sizes before I settled on a 32FF for this one, though I'm usually a 34G.)
Yes, I recommend this product.

I used these as my only workout bras for a long time. Nothing else I'd tried controlled the bounce near as well. BUT...it definitely gave me the uniboob. I got tired of the uniboob and moved on to trying some of the other highly-rated models. Most of them don't come close to the support of this one, and some are a pain to get into on a regular basis. A few times I wondered if I was going to come back to this one (until I found the Panache sports bra). Bottom line: I highly recommend if you don't mind the uniboob.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I tried this bra because of the clearance price, coupled with previous experience with the Le Mystere Envie (LOVE!!!) and Energie bras. I wore it criss-crossed to a carnival & was very comfortable for the long day. It even provided (unexpectedly) great support during a few short sprints--the support was better than many sports bras I've tried. I don't intend to use this as my sports bra, but it's nice to know it can handle by 34Gs! Even though it is a deeper cut bra, I never got the 4-boob thing going--that's a first for this low a cut on me. This bra is worth the full regular price, IMHO.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I found the cups to be too generous, which is usually the opposite problem I have with my 34Gs. I think it would be better for me if I sized down and was only interested in wearing this with the straps straight. I thought this was going to be a winner, and really wanted to like it, but it put too much stress on the muscles running neck to shoulder when worn criss-crossed. After trying it a few times, the muscles were sore even after I took the bra off.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bra is really nice for a contour, as long as you take into consideration that the cup was slightly small, yet the band was a little on the large side. Otherwise, very nice shaping.

This bra would be a five star if only the band wasn't humungous. The cup size is fine, and flattering if only the band was significantly tighter.

These are absolutely my favorite panties! No matter what rise your pants are, these won't be visible when you sit or lean over. I'm a bit obsessive about not having panty lines, and these deliver on that claim, as well. I hope these never get discontinued.

I'd almost given up on finding a contour bra that worked for my natural, 40 year-old 34Gs. If the cups fit initially, it wouldn't be long before I was spilling out. Or the cups would pucker even while I wasn't fully contained. I tried this one as a last attempt, and I'm thrilled I did. If only I'd found it sooner, I would have saved a lot of money and hassle. Love the snug band, and to have the option of criss-crossing the straps is wonderful (a rare option for my size).
Yes, I recommend this product.

More info why didn't work for me.

The problem is definitely with the strap length for wearing it criss-crossed. In order to wear this criss-crossed I had to take it to a seamstress who is making 2" extensions for the straps. (The extenders available in stores are for the bands, and have the wrong hooks to work on the straps.) I'm only 5'4", so it's not like I have a long torso. I definitely don't recommend, unless you are looking to wear the straps straight only. There are much better options for racerbacks. (My personal favorite is the Panache 5021...awesome, awesome, awesome!!!)

When will a 34G be back in stock?

I have been trying to get a 34G for several weeks now. When will you be getting more in? I did sign up for the email alert.
Workoutmama, you may want to try a 32FF, if they're in stock. I'm normally a 34G, and after trying a few sizes, including the 34G, I liked the 32FF fit much better. (I do prefer a rather snug band, though.)
