Rated 3 out of 5 by student1996 Shame about the fit
I have had these M&S sports bras before and absolutely loved them; a great compromise between style and practicality. Before I have always been a 34F in sports bras (and my old two still fit, I just wanted a new colour) and so I ordered the same.
My old ones still fit but this seemed a little big. Not sure if that's because I have lost weight (I wish!!) or if it's a manufacturing error, but either way I probably should have ordered the size down.
Unfortunately couldn't return as I only realized it would be a problem ten minutes into an Insanity class!! Still would order again - just make sure you check the fit before you wear them to work out in...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kazsport Zip front sports bra
Disappointed, too much loose fabric in the outer skin so it wrinkled up, although the fit was fine. Item returned :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by surferrosa A workout just to do it done up!
This is a great looking bra and the fabric feels nice. I took my normal size, 32F. However, I really spend ages struggling to get the thing done up - it was impossible with only two hands. The tension on the fabric once the zip is in position means you need two hands to pull the zip up and one hand to hold the top together. This may not be quite so difficult with smaller cup sizes, but the larger sizes could really do with a hook and eye fastening at the top to help hold it all together. I was exhausted and frustrated so gave up! I did try a larger size (34) which was easier to do up but offered minimal support so that went back too. High Impact support this is not!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CoralStarfish Not Supportive
I have a size 32F. I have always used the M&S Extra High Impact Sports Bra's and they are brilliant. SO supportive and excellent to play squash in (a sport that needs a lot of support for large breasted ladies).
I am absolutely gutted they seem to have discontinued the old version of this bra and brought this out instead. I tried it on at home, very excited to use their new product - but i did a small tiny bounce and the bra had absolutely no support, it was painful to do any kind of exercise, let alone squash. The zip holds no support, the back holds no support. It looks lovely, but ladies which large breasts who play high intensity sports must have full support to care for our breasts.
I returned the bra after simply just trying it on in my bedroom. Now hunting for a new sports bra elsewhere that is somewhat similar to the old M&S Extra High Impact range.
The style, colour and quality of the bra itself was great - just no support for us ladies with big breasts. Gutted to say the least.
