Definitely too tight the first time I wore it, but with wear and washing with softener, it stretched a little and is now super comfy. I like my sports bras tight being a 38GG and needing lots of support, so this is perfect for me. After a couple wears, it was easier to breathe. The fabric is comfy, the lack of a wire surprised me but actually that makes it way more comfortable. I have no complaints at all, these hold my chest well and prevent bouncing when going hard on the cardio, making me feel more comfortable and less self-conscious, and enabling me to work harder.
I totally recommend, and the only negative thing I have to say is that initial tightness, but if you can push through it, it will fit perfectly, feel comfortable, and hold everything where it needs to be without digging in at the shoulders.
Ordered my normal size and while it’s a tight fit it does give after a bit of wear. To be honest, if it didn’t fit close it wouldn’t work and it does! Bought it for running and it’s perfect for the job. While it isn’t a racer back style, it’s fit and support is excellent. It also means you don’t have to be double jointed and ambidextrous to put it on which is a big plus. Not the nicest looking sports bra but if you are bigger up top the support and lack of movement is your main concern.
This bra has no underwire support and absolutely no shape in the design. When I tried mine on, a 36D, and finally got fastened in, I could hardly move. If it does 'give' over time, as suggested by others, I just don't have that long to wait. It flattens the breast and squashes everything in tightly. Too uncomfortable to endure. Would suggest buying two sizes larger than you'd normally wear if you actually want to wear it for sports or exercise.
Love this bra - and it's so much cheaper than in the shops. I bought it for circuits and aeorobics and it works like a dream. I'm a 34D so really need to be held in place. With this bra I can skip and trampoline with ease, no jiggling about at all. The shoulder straps are slightly padded which makes it really comfy too. if you do any activity that involves jumping around, you need this bra!
I think this is the best bra I have ever owned! It was slightly small around the back, but the cups were perfect and give a great shape. Having a fuller bust, I like the fact that the bra makes me look smaller than I am. Very flattering!
Excellent sports bra. Keeps everything where it should be and looks great under a thin top/t.shirt. Very flattering. Good material & quality, so this is definitely a 'value for money' purchase. The bra has great lift, which usually you only get from underwired ones. So that's a great bonus having the lift & support, with the comfort of no wires. This was my 1st 'shock absorber' sports bra... but will definitely not be my last. I love the fit, & I love the price - win win! Absolutely would recommend. (& no need to go up or down a size, just your regular bra size should be fine. Mine was perfect).
I bought this because shock absorber is known for its expertise in making sports underwear for high impact activity and this bra in particular looked nice and plain styling in pure black, with NO PADDING!! I really had padding in sports bras, I find they add so much extra bulk. This is really slim but so effective for people who are a C cup or more for running and high impact - minimal movement. Very fast drying to so its easy to wash and is good in the heat. I do think it is quite a tight fit for try high impact efficacy but I actually like the secure feeling, however you probably wouldn't want it on all day at the same time! It is also excellent that it comes in multiple back sizes - My band size is a 30 (UK)/ 75 (EU) and it can be really hard to find C/D cup sports bras with this band size. £25 is also really reasonable a bra - couldn't recommend more for people who area similar size.
This is for my teenage daughter as she has suddenly sprouted and she needed new bras desperately. We measured and she said she wanted something really supportive that held her steady!
This seemed to fit the bill and although pretty expensive in my view, she tried it on as soon as it arrived and she loves it. It holds her very firmly and fits perfectly. She’s very happy.
I like that the straps are thick I don’t dig in. We went for the size she measured as and this was a 32 inch band - it’s on the loosest eyelets so there is room for it to be adjusted onto tighter eyelets when it stretches. Perfect fit really.
This sports bra is fantastic. I’ve always had trouble with finding a well fitting and supportive sports bra for larger bust. I’ve spent a fortune trying lots of brands and styles. None come close to this one. It provides great support during rigorous exercise including running. It is comfortable to wear. I’ve had it 10 months now and will be buying another as it’s great!
