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.
Really disappointed with this item based upon price and poor fit - the back fasteners are a real struggle to pull together! I'd say this item would only fit people who have a very narrow back! I then bought some bra extender fasteners to assist - and have had to use 2 of them integrated with the bra to make it comfortable! Never had to do this with any bra in my size before!
I used to own a Shockabsorber sports bra and it was amazing. Over the past few years, I've put on weight so went up a size and I don't know if it's just me but the quality/sizing is just not the same as i remembered. The sizing is all off. It didn't support me, and it was uncomfortable, so i ended up returning it. For such a pricey item, I expected a lot better
This used to be a great bra - I have an old one in this make, but sadly the shoulder straps are far too short even when at their longest length and cut in. In addition, the back elastic seems to squish out my back fat, which I think another reviewer noted. Sadly had to return.
Over the years I've purchased several Shock Absorber Sports Bras from other sources. This one does not compare at all favourably with the others I have. It's flimsy - much less substantial than the others, slightly on the small size and poorer quality than I've come to expect. Won't be buying again.
Supportive enough, but for some reason I was expecting there to be some padding to the cups, not just for the straps. The material is thin but seem hardwearing. The size...feels smaller than it should be. I'm not comfortable. Frequent adjustments being made throughout the day.
I bought this as I know shock absorber are a good bra. I definately would recommend ordering a bigger size, I ordered my normal size. I found it is very tight and instead of holding them in place, they are squashed and it's a very, very tight fit.
The sizing is incorrect I.e. too small. This is the second bra I purchased. The first one which was my normal size was too small. Then I went up a size and this was too small as well. Very disappointed as these were recommended to me. I’ll just stuck with my one from Next.
I did not bother sending it back, at some point I might slim into it, but it is far too small. I actually could not even put it on it is soo small. I bought my usual size 36 C. Otherwise the material is good and strong, but size up if you buy this.
