If you have mahoosive hooters and you want to jump about in gym classes, kicking and punching and doing burpees and all without the slightly jiggle - this is the one. Even more so than even other Shock Absorber designs, this is the first one I’ve tried that is comfortable and truly delivers on no jiggle whatsoever. Keep those puppies in their place.
Run 3 times a week and this is one of the many sports bra I alternate between - nothing moves!! Good support and not uncomfortable although only downside is that two clasps and top one is awkward to do up, I do the top one up and put on over head then do up the bottom. Very good for running.
This is a pretty sturdy sports bra which straps you in nicely for whatever exercise you choose to do (I run). It's well constructed and pretty comfortable. Be warned though, the sizing runs on the small to very small size. I bought my regular bra size and it just about works on one "side" and not at all on the other. Also, it's not the easiest thing to get into - you almost need to do some warm up stretching to contort yourself enough to do the top clasp up. Once you're in and running though, you don't notice it's there and you're pretty well trussed up.
I've been using this bra for months now and overall i'm very pleased with it. The bra has two clasps at the back and its great for extra support (read that: less bounce!). Still, there's a slight design oddity. The netted material at the back of bra has ripped slightly. I realise the netting was probably a design attempt to help with sweating however its also resulted in a slight rip where the netting meets the strap material. The breasts sit in a hammock type place, personally i prefer this over the individual pockets you get with most bras as i feel it makes your breasts more secure when working out. If you are a D+ i'd definitely recommend this bra. Even you if decide against this particular item, i personally love this brand and will always wear them at the gym.
This bra is amazing! I’ve struggled so much over the years trying to find a bra suitable to offer appropriate containment during exercise. This bra is the most wonderful thing I have found, I’m not quite sure how I managed without it all these years. Pleased to say I’ve been able to make up for lost exercise over the years by taking up running knowing all the while I’m well contained without feeling at all restricted or constrained. Not only is it substantial but comfortable. Skeptical initially due to lack of underwire, but the thoughtful placement of straps and hooks has made all the difference. Would very highly recommend, particularly for ladies with the larger cup size, this bra certainly makes a massive difference (no pun intended!)
I’m so disappointed ! I have had the same sports bra for 3yrs. Thought I just stick with what I know... but terrible quality this time round! Very thin material and does not hold up well. I’m all over the show! I must say when the gyms open I can cause a scene! You may laugh but I cannot return it now as I have had to use it for a cardio session! Couldn’t bear the sight of me so had to turn my mirror round! Money wasted and with such economic climate I could have been better off with my “old goldy”! I give this bra a 1/5. Genuine
Please be careful when ordering . I don't know what has happened with shock absorber but the fit has changed massively. My new bra whilst definitely not allowing bounce as promised also gave me a mono boob and sore shoulders and neck. The band fitting seems really tight as well, even on the last fastening which is all I can do it up to . I can't bear to wear it , with hindsight I should have waited to take the tags off but having worn shock absorbers for years I thought it would be ok,
Good sports bra. I can see why some people say the fit is tight. There is absolutely no wiggle room when I wear this but I suppose that's how it stops your boobs being completely unmanageable while working out. It's so effective it kind of works like a minimiser which I don't mind. I just wish that decent sports bras were slightly more affordable.
Wow! I couldn't believe this when I tried it on! I jumped up and down: no bouncing, no pain. I ran around: no bouncing, no pain. I did some erratic dance moves: no bouncing, no pain. Your chest feels weightless with this bra, there's no movement at all and it's very comfortable with the double fastening at the back! The straps and band are very soft and padded too. I tried a multitude of moves to test its capabilities and it's really good for gentler exercises, such as yoga, all the way up to running about as fast as you can like a mad thing! I got this in a band size larger (40E) than my everyday bra size (38E) and I found it to be a perfect fit for me! Love this bra, it's just perfect! SO pleased with it! :-)
This time I went for the largest cup size available for the size and it just fits without squeezing my boobs out at the top. So is perfect and has the great support I am used to from this model, great for high impact with lots of jumping.
