  • Product Description

    Shock Absorber Run Support Bra. Focus on RUN When you run, your breasts move in a repetitive figure of 8 pattern. This continuous up and down and side-to-side movement can cause rubbing and chafing. That's why we created a bra specifically for running. Focus on Support The Infinity-8 support system designed for the RUN sports bra offers enhanced support to target excessive breast movement. The seam-free inner and concealed elastic under arms reduces any rubbing or chafing. During testing, we calculated a reduction of up to 78 percent bounce, giving you a more focused running bra for a more focused performance.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Love this bra - great for a larger bust! 15 April 2010
    This is hands down the best sports bra I have ever owned. Previously I always had to wear a shock absorber sports bra, a sports crop top over the top and a supportive running top to keep my larger boobs under control - not any more, this bra gives superior support on it's own.

    This bra is specially made for running and it shows with barely any movement even at high speeds. I ordered a cup size lower to ensure a snug fit and it fits like a dream.

    Only warning i would say is that you have to be pretty flexible to get this bra on. The back band clips like a normal bra but there is also a second clip between the shoulder blades that you have to reach over the top of your shoulders to fasten and it is a bit of a fiddly clip so takes a second or two - not a problem so long as you have at least average shoulder flexibility but i have heard a couple of people who have had problems with it.

    Overall though I would definitely recommend this bra - i have been raving about it to all my running girls friends and am just about to buy another one myself!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good product 16 May 2011

    Colour Name:Black/Silver|Size Name:34 DD
    Product is really good, no movement, was really impressed. BUT I wish I had got a 36 instead of a 34 (my usual size) because it was reallllyy tight and this made it really difficult to get on. I think I'm gonna have to lose a few pounds just to get in the bra lol.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly taut 26 April 2011
    Colour Name:Black/Silver|Size Name:38 C
    I'm now at the age where the shock absorber video on their website scares me. I don't want saggy boobies in my dotage (the spinster bitterness will be enough to keep my knees warm, thanks); but I do want to end up being able to run for a full 30mins in the near future.

    So getting this bra was on the top of my list (after getting the right shoes and some shorts that didn't show off the wobble of the upper thighs). And I think it's absolutely amazing. When I'm running, the girls stay happily in place. There's no movement, no wiggle, no room for them to bounce, and basically - when I see other women running towards me, I'm now ALMOST tempted to inform them of the comfort of this bra.

    On the other hand, we just don't do that around my place.

    Enjoy it ladies. I'm usually between a 36-38" and I got the 38 which fits perfectly.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly good! 17 Oct 2010
    By Emily
    Colour Name:Black/Silver|Size Name:32 D
    I train every day and have had trouble finding a bra that would effectively prevent my D cup boobs bouncing around on my runs. This one is definitely recommended- it's 20X better than any other I have tried (and trust me, I've tried loads of different ones from all the big names).

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best sports bra I own - Amazing! 4 Jun 2010
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this bra after I recently took up running, as I wanted something specifically intended for this kind of exercise. I already own a couple of Shock Absorber bras, but these are both intended for lower intensity exercise, and I tend to wear them on gym equipment such as cross trainers.

    The first thing to say about this bra is that it is incredibly comfortable. When I first went to put it on it felt like it was going to be very tight, but in fact it just sits snugly on the skin with no discomfort whatsoever. Also, rather than having to pull it over my head like I have to with my other Shock Absorber bras, this one fastens like a normal bra, with an extra clip at the top (which was a little fiddly the first time I tried it on, but I quickly got the knack). It feels incredibly well made, and as for its ability to control any unwanted "bounce" whilst running, it is simply brilliant. It really does support the bust extremely well, without leaving you feeling like you're restricted. I also personally found that the bra runs true to size.

    Really cannot recommend this highly enough, and I'll definitely be getting another.

    I read a lot of reviews on Amazon for this sports bra, many of which suggested to go up a cup and band size. Normally being a 32E in sports bras, I went for the 34F, which arrived today. The reviews weren't right for me! It's too big in the back and the cup!! So, I think everyone is gonna be different with the sizing on this. In a normal bra, I'm a 30E, so I'm gonna have to return and opt for a 32E, which I think will be about right (judging by the one I tried today). I really have struggled to get a good sports bra for playing competitive tennis that is supportive and gives a good shape, and snug but not over-tight on the band. I have a normal one so wanted a racer-back style. This seemed like the perfect choice, BUT will have to see if the normal-sized one fits!!

    ** UPDATE **

    Mainly updating the review as I know just how hard it is to get a sports bra that fits well!! I got the 30E today, and it fits perfectly! Again, bearing in mind that I'm a 30E in a standard bra, the 32E in this one fits snug but not too tight on the band, and the cups cover well with no spillage around the edges!! I basically just open the clasps, pop it over my head, then fasten it behind my back. This won't be easy for everyone if you're not very flexible...

    Also, I have found the reviews saying the band/cup comes up small completely wrong for me. If you don't try one on in the shops first, then I'd say go for your usual cup size but go one band size up. That worked for me!! Now I've got the sizing right, I love it!!
