I absolutely love these bras. I owned different types of shock absorber but somehow wear these particular one the most. Once you've worked out your size, they are super comfortable - no bouncing, no pain and they come in lovely design too which is an added bonus. They come up quite small which is what you need for a sport bra; I would however recommend going up a band and down one cup size. I am a 34D and all my shock absorber bras are 36C.
I am 38H in the Shock Absorber Sports Bra. I have four of these at home. I have had two for at least 18 months if not longer. When I exercise, I only use these. Unfortunately, no amount of support will stop my large chest from bouncing but I do manage a jog with this bra without feeling like I'm being attacked by my breasts. It washes well even with regular use (that is why I have four). Keeps it's shape. The fit is spot on. Good selection of designs. Price varies but I haven't paid more that £20 for each bra. I will buy again.
My god this is difficult to put on, partly because it is *so tight*, but that's where most of the support comes from. Saying that, if you don't like feeling like you're being squeezed within an inch of your life, order a band size up. I am a 32D and ordered this size but its super tight even on the loosest settings. The clasp in the middle of the back is a big awkward but I appreciate its adjustable - the adjustable straps are great and once you get them right it's a comfortable bra. I train for hockey 3x a regular week and our sessions are intense, this bra was PERFECT, absolutely no bouncing or moving (and I'm a D/DD cup). Would recommend for larger bust girls but if you don't want it super super tight, go up 1 band size.
This is the best sports bra I’ve found for high impact sports, i have about 8 of this style in total now, in various colour/prints, they last a good couple of years with regular use. (Running, HIIT, snowboarding). Yes, the fit is small, super tight around the ribs so if you want more comfort then size up on the chest, but this is designed to be tight, I wouldn’t use it for yoga or other low-impact activities. This is the only sports bra I’ve found where I feel so strappped in there is zero ‘jiggle’ (I’m a 32C and no other sports bra can cut it like this). If, like me, you do a lot of sports and want to protect your best ‘assets’ then I highly recommend the Shock Absorber.
This bra was so small, it appeared childlike, and totally unwearable!
I've sent it back for a refund, and as a result, I'm unable to comment any further on performance. Ridiculous sizing.
I'm usually a 32 band; there is NO WAY this bra is a 32 fit, it felt more like a 28, or a 30 at a push.
The sizing was so ridiculous, with fairly short straps also; although I'm tall,with limited options for adjustment. I would not order this type of bra again, and have instead ordered a different type of shock absorber, again, with odd sizing. Their 32 is DEFINITELY NOT a 32, and I've had to size up in this brand. Positive - colour is lovely and bright, and delivery was quick!
This bra size is really wrong. It looks good and if found the correct size would be good support I GUESS. But for me, it was a waste of money as even a size up was too small, and have to pay for returns. If the return was free I would have bought more and try to find the correct size. As a regular gym user, I need a few good sports bras.
So, I ordered a 36E (my usual size) and it is a tad on the snug side! It is a wee bit complicated to do up due to having two fastenings and me not being double jointed, but I figured out that I can do it up at the front and then spin it round and that works fine. It is not particularly generous in the cup area (if I had to hazard a guess I would say it is a D cup) but it's not so tight it is uncomfortable and my boobs stay in place when I am at the gym which is what I wanted! All in, does what it says on the tin and a total bargain to boot. I would definitely buy again.
Not a great cut actually, too low under the arms, means as it's a small cut bias, I've spilling out all over the place back, front and sides - not pretty, such a shame as the fabric is pretty - get a bigger cup size is my advice.
Brilliant bra for sport . For the fuller busted woman. Stops bounce holds you perfectly . Lovely colour and pattern. Best product I've ever bought . Had an older model and that was great but this is up to date funky and practical
