Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The UK’s leading sports bra brand. Shock Absorbers’ are designed to give the perfect fit and support.

Shock Absorber was launched in 1995 as a result of research by Edinburgh University which showed that wearing a sports bra whilst you exercise reduces breast movement, delaying long term sagging.

Originally designed and developed by the British lingerie brand Berlei, it became a brand in its own right in 2000.

Top athletes including Olympic Gold Medallist, Sally Gunnell, Anna Kournikova and Jade Johnson have helped develop the Shock Absorber product designs.

Product Description

The Shock Absorber Max Support bra features a modern rounded silhouette in a moisture-wicking breathable, high performance fabric. This means that no matter how hot your workout becomes, you'll be kept cool, dry and comfortable. The wide, padded and adjustable straps promise a perfect fit. FACT: 44% of women who exercise regularly do not wear sports bras. Inadequate breast support, coupled with excessive breast movement, is the most likely cause of sore and tender breasts after exercise. Also, exercising without a good sports bra can make you uncomfortable, distract you and affect your confidence. FACT: Wearing a Shock Absorber sports bra is proven to reduce breast movement by up to 78%. This has proven to be as much as twice as effective at minimising breast movement as a 'normal' bra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sports bra 8 Feb 2010
Colour Name:White|Size Name:34 C
The shock absorber sports bra is great. It gives you full support and no embarrasing bouncing! I run every day and this bra gives you a bit more confidence knowing your well supported. I would recommend it to any runner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the most supportive sports bra 31 Jan 2010
Colour Name:White|Size Name:36 DD
Nice design and material - also well made but not the most supportive sports bra for larger breasted women. I run and play squash and I would only use this for squash as it would definately not support me enough for a run.

5.0 out of 5 stars No movement! 24 Nov 2009

Colour Name:White| Size Name:34 FF|Verified Purchase
Great sports bra, keeps you well in place! I find this style much easier (as at least for the larger cup sizes, FF) it opens fully at the back, and does not have to be pulled over your head (like some other styles, which I hate)

1.0 out of 5 stars Read this if you're a 36C or above! 9 May 2010
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:36 C
I'm a 36 C cup and I'm currently training for me 2nd marathon, so I do alot of running. Previously I've worn an over the head type bra with a reinforced vest type running top and this tends to minimise the inevitable bounce. So I was really eager to try this "wonder" bra. I have several points whcih unfortunately reflect this bra in a very negative light.
1). This bra does not stop the bounce. It sort of straps them down and this reduces the bounce a wee bit, but it gives you a MOMOBOOB (just what every girl wants) and this then bounces as one. But be under no illusion it will bounce.
2). For long distance running chafing is inevitable once you go over say 12 miles distances. To me absolute horror I had chafing on both after a 5 mile run! This is totally unacceptable and its purely the result of a ridiculous design flaw. The inside of each cup has seams running horizontally from side to side, the repetitive motion of running (and bouncing) caused serious chafing to the point where it bleed!
3). My final rant is for the overall design. Not only is this bra a pull over the head bra but then you have to contort yourself to fix a back fastening. In my opinion this fastening is totally redundant and it makes it difficult to "fix" your pair in place. May as well just have stuck to the original over the head design.
Thats it. I've been totally honest here, I hated this bra and won't be wearing it again. If any girls out there of 36 C or above know of a sports bra that does what it claims I love love love to hear about it! Happy running girls!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does its job! 4 Jan 2010
Colour Name:White|Size Name:34 D
Nice and comfy and great support. This bra is perfect for me, as I go running and to the gym quite often. I also have it in black. Well worth the money, much cheaper on here than buying in the shops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good bra, no more bouncing 17 April 2011
Purchased this bra for rugby and general exercise. It;
1. Is very comfy
2. Minimises any bouncing
3. Flattens my chest evenly (does not create embarassing 'points' like other sports bras I've tried
4. Is quite easy to get on and off, there are 2 clasps, although the top one may take some getting used to.
I found the sizes were accurate and it's essential for larger chested women who do sports.

Nothing tames the bounce like Shock Absorber. I've tried others but these really are the best! Good price too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for everyday gym activity. Not for bootcamp classes!
Nice colour nice fit but not really supportive as I thought. Sizing is hard I got a 34DD and think it was a bit too big. But is nicer to have a better cup support. Read more
