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 bought a couple of these early in the year and they fitted well, so I ordered a couple more. Although generally they were the same, they seemed to have skimped on quality slightly- a cheap flimsy itchy size label, no 'shock absorber' embroidery on the chest band and the logo peeled off after one wash. The biggest problem I had is the same problem many have complained about- the chest band was way too tight for a 34. I have never owned a 34c bra before where it was this tight. I'm on the maximum clasp and still it's a horrible fit. When exercising, you need your chest to expand to breathe in more oxygen, this has little 'give' and with such a tight fitting, what's a girl to do? Pass out due to hypoxia?? I've been buying Shock Ab bras for years and so I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to buy now. Such a shame.
I had a shock absorber bra before and this time round I am so so disappointed and upset because I ordered two assuming it would be great fabric and a great fit. Neither!! It is also tough on the back sides that it is grazing into my skin!! I wish they refund me as a goodwill gesture or send me something else more comfortable that doesn’t cut me and hold up as they should but as I’ve already tried both on and used one already I am not sure.
Not hugely supportive but I had to order a bra that went under cheerleading uniform that didn’t show at the back, and I can understand that sports bra’s that don’t cross at the back are just less supportive! Otherwise great quality and looks good :)
I bought a shock absorber in the past and know the product well. Unfortunately the quality of this fabric was much thinner than the last one. Also my boobs felt too squashed as the size felt too small.
This bra fits but unfortunately when I wear it and move about the elasticated wide band at the bottom rolls over and causes discomfort. I am continually having to straighten it out, but it still keeps rolling up.
I've been buying these bras for years and the latest ones very itchy label cut it off still itchy fabric and certainly the fit is smaller. Not sure what's happened with the fabric but there has been a change, disappointing and by the looks of it I am not alone in this feedback.
