To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Having lost a lot of weight and some of it on my bust, it was important to me to get a good bra to train in. I bought one of these about 6 months ago and decided to buy a second. It isn't the cheapest for sure, but then, go to debt hams or another store and the same bra is far more expensive. When it comes to bra fitting there is an element that the price is less important. I can run 10k in this and no chaffing, no pain and no squeezing out of the sides or movement that basically would hurt. I think I have found my sports bra and this time ignored all the other bras to find this one. Worth the money?- for sure. Superb adjustment for shoulders, back and secure clipping that are covered at skin contact area to avoid any rubbing.
I was worried about buying this as I had heard they come up small, but I decided to take the plunge! The main concern is that my normal bra size is a 40B and the size chart looked to end at a 38". However, I noticed that to get the right size, you measure under the breast and for me, I was a 36, so having read reviews that they come up small I ordered a 38 and it fits perfectly. The bra is of a fantastic quality and extremely supportive when running. I am totally sold with Shock Absorber to the point that in spite of it being my first, it mostly certainly won't be my last purchase from this manufacturer.
I was very pleased with the fit of the Shock Absorber bra, and i wore it for my Race For Life at the weekend. However there was a small stain on one side of the bra, although the bra was perfectly package and wrapped, as if brand new, i didnt have time to return and order again.
I have three of them now for jogging. I'm normally 36B, so having done the fitting in a shop before ordering on Amazon, I bought 36B and it was nice and tight. But it shrunk a little bit after a few washes and it got too tight then. So I bought 38Bs the next time and these are much more comfortable, but with great support.
I had hesitated over this purchase as pricey but so well worth it - fantastic fit - I bought my normal bra size and so soft and comfortable but completely supportive. I like the way it still does up at the back but has the upper back fastening too - I am so pleased I decided to get this!
