This is one of the best support bras I’ve worn. I have thought of buying a Shock Absorber sports bra for a very long time. I often doubt what many of these brands say when it comes to full busted women. They simply don’t cater sufficiently to women like me. I run and I’m a 34 F. I read the reviews and bought a 36 E and it was spot on. I like the Racerback clip for added support. I never unclip it, just put it over my head. I’ve washed it a few times and so far the material appears as though it will hold up. Delivery was good. The price could be a little more affordable and I wished the full range of colours could have been available for my size. I got a black. It’s something I would consider getting a second but in a different colour.
If you are a bigger chest size woman I highly recommend this for you. Don't fool yourself by going for something smaller size. I was blessed with a bigger set of boobs. And It is hard for me to feel comfortable and have the right support with a normal sports bra. I use this bra for the gym, hiking when I go for my runs. This bra supports you in all the right places, It pushes your boobs up and in. No sore shoulder straps. I like that you can choose to have the bra strap as an X or normal shoulder strap. I don't have any sore shoulders where the strap is digging in. This bra is good as you don't get stuck midway when you try to get it off after a sweaty session. The material is light and quick to dry.
The quality is very good, and the boobies are definitely not moving anywhere in this, so it does the job!
However, it IS tight around the under-bust area, although it doesn't really compress the actual boobs, which is clever. All my other sports bras seem to use the method of just squishing 'em down flat, which aside from looking weird, doesn't work that well once the bra has been washed a few million times. This one is perfect for running when I really need there to be no jiggling - and maybe if I lose a few pounds it'll be a better fit! I am a consistent 34C in normal bras and still think 36 may have been too big here, but I may order another one in a 36B to test out this theory. If you' have larger breasts, or think you might be kind of between under-bust measurements, then (as other reviewers have said) consider going up one in inches and down one in cup size from your usual bra size.
This is one of the best sports bras I have ever owned. With a large chest it and small back I have struggled to get the right support to use when running. This is ideal although slightly small than I expected in the cup therefore only giving 4 stars today. Washes well and holds firm even when sprinting.
It's a good bra, I was sceptical after reading some reviews but was pleasantly surprised, I bought my normal size and it fit perfect! Tbh a little pricey for me so I'd probably only buy another one if it goes on sale, but definitley did the job, if you have a larger chest - I'm normally a 38C - then this is perfect, it's the only thing that stopped my boobs bouncing all over the place when I'm running
Very comfortable running bra, wouldn't know you had it on. That's a first for me! The band as others have said is quite small fitting, so definitely go up a size from what you normally wear. The top clip on back is quite difficult to fasten. Anyone with any kind of restricted movement in their arms/ shoulder/neck would certainly struggle with it. Other than that it's a fantastic buy, and half the price it was in the sports shop where I originally tried it out for size.
Excellent fit, great support for the slightly above average bust. Probably not great if you're above an E. The straps are strong, although the plastic bit on the back sometimes twists out of line. The colour over time has faded to more of an off white, I guess this is to be expected of gym clothing.
I am a 38F and so ordered a 38E to keep the “girls” down. The cup size is great however it is very tight. I personally like this because I have struggled to find bras that really keep me down however some people might find the tightness around the chest too much. Have used for running and it has definitely been effective, would recommend
Does a good job of keeping my eyes bruise free when exercising. Doubt there's a shock absorbing bra out there that can figuratively actually STOP your (@)(@)'s from moving within a cm or so.....but this one's good enough until I find one. The double strap/clasps to rear tested my Yoga, and were nearly a workout in themselves :-) but I can see their worth - they definitely pulled me in more securely. Don't attempt trying it on when you're expecting a parcel.....
Love shock absorber bras. Always buy them. I have tried other brands on but don't feel as supportive. The run bra does come up small though. I am 36FF and have to have 38F for a good fit. The band on 36FF cuts in terrible
