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.
I love the brand, very effective but this particular product looks plain ugly (on me 🙂). It just feels like it’s a lot of material whereas the other designs are a lot sleeker. Does the job though. No jiggle whatsoever.
I am small across my back and found this bra to be a bit tighter than normal for me. However, there was no chaffing or irritation, so will continue to use it. A very good support sports bra, especially for larger cup sizes.
Ich habe Schwierigkeiten mit meiner Größe (70H) einen passenden BH, vor allem Sport-BH zu finden, der wirklich ein bisschen hält. Weil ich Shock Absorber als sehr positiv in Erinnerung hatte, habe ich diesen bestellt und ich kriege ihn nicht mal zu! Also ich würde aktuell schätzen, dass die angegebenen 70H eigentlich eher eine 65-70E sind. Zurückgeschickt habe ich ihn noch nicht, da ich eh am Abnehmen bin und ich hoffe, dass er mir dann über kurz oder lang dann doch passt. Dennoch, sehr ärgerlich.
The cup fits one size too small, and the band, while probably more true to size than not, is too tight. (I found it difficult to breath with the original size set on the loosest hook.) I exchanged the bra for one a band size larger *and* a cup size larger. The band the next size up fit only on the tightest hook, so I have no room to adjust if the elastic expands with age; however, Shock Absorber bras seem to wear well. The larger cup size (roughly equivalent in volume to two sizes up) feels right. This is my first Shock Absorber bra with lighter support, but it will work as an everyday bra as well as in the gym.
Ordering this from Freshpair (through Amazon) was the best part of the experience. They don't just send you the bra, they follow up asking how it fit and helping to diagnose the problem and recommend a better size. The exchange was easy. Fabulous customer service. Don't be afraid to order from them online.
I bought this for my girlfriend after I saw the promotional site for it online - it looked like an awesome, high-tech athletic bra that would give her the support she needed when running. When it came, it was much larger than the specified size, and felt really cheap and flimsy. She said that it didn't provide any more support than her regular Hanes sports bra. She hasn't worn it since.
I was thrilled to find a sports bra in 34DD that looked as if it would not give me the "uniboob" look. Well to my dismay, the thing was barely a C cup even though the label inside the garment said "34DD", who are they kidding? It will be returned promptly and my search for a supportive sports bra in my size continues....
Ok...I am. 32H and my workouts include a decent amount of jumping and running. This bra did exactly what I needed. I have two other types of bras, but neither of them hold as well as this one. I'm SURE ill be investing in another just like it!
