Product Description

Product Description

The Active Classic Support Bra as been designed to look and feel like an everyday bra, while also providing maximum support and comfort. The padded straps and wide underband ensure you are supported in key areas, while still offering optimal comfort. Mesh panelling and the moisture wicking, breathable, high performance fabric allow you to look good and be comfortable and supported while working out.

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.

A good all round bra. I have used this for running (before it was stated not suitable for running). It held everything in place very well, hardly any movement (I have small chest size). I have three of these bras, and they have lasted me for years. I also wear then during the day as well and not just for sport.

Very important to get exactly the right size, for maximum benefit.

Now need to get some new bras for running, as mine are worn out, so I am moving onto the 'Run' design.

Bra gives slightly unusual 'rugby ball effect.' It looks like you have two rugby balls stuffed up your t-shirt. Also you can see nipples, if worn under very tight t-shirts or jumpers.

Not the most attractive bra for someone else to see you in, especially the white version, it looks like a granny bra!! But the black is OK.

What I don't like about this bra, is that it separates the breasts. I have only small breasts, so I notice that the bra moves the nipples away (to the left and right respectively) from where my nipples started to grow and where they would be if my breasts could support themselves totally naturally.

As we age breasts fall down the chest wall and to the left and right respectively. Bras need to not just hold the breasts up but together as well!!

Like wise, when we run, the breast moves from left to right (and stretches in this direction too) as well as up and down.

I don't notice any side-ward movement of the breast in this bra when I run, but the bra does not hold the breasts close together enough for my liking. Also I feel that as a consequence it causes slightly too much breast tissue to be felt under arms.

This bra provides the kind of good support that you'd expect from Shock Absorber. The padded straps provide added comfort, and the wide underband sits nicely against the ribcage for support. Although the description states that it's not suitable for running, I've worn this bra a couple of times when out running, and it felt fine (I wear a C cup). The only issue I have with this bra is that the cups give me quite a strange silhouette - from the side, my chest looks slightly 'pointy'. Some women might like this shape - my older Shock Absorber bras have tended to minimize the chest, giving more of a flattened shape, which is not attractive either but is at least inconspicuous!

Amazing fit, and it's always a gamble buying something like a bra online, but it's really comfortable and nothing moves!

This bra does give support and the padded shoulder straps are comfortable. However, the underband rolls up and is extremely uncomfortable. Not as good as other Shock Absorber designs. I wouldn't buy another one.

The new softer, wider underband for improved comfort of the shock absorber classic is soo wide. It stops your circulation as it rolls up. Much preferred the old classic bra with comfortable underband.

I bought this (in black) for the gym and, on my first chance of wearing it, it performed perfectly.
It's not as unattractive as some sports bras can be and was easy to put on. I choose the classic bra because I wanted a bra that didn't have the hassles I've seen other people get into pulling them over their heads. Sometimes they look like they're contortionists when they struggle to get into or out of their bras. And this one was really simple to get on and off.
I tend to do a bit of everything - some stretching, some jogging on the treadmill, some spinning, weights and rowing etc. I am a 38C and this bra holds everything in place while also making sure your breasts don't become unsightly solid mono-bumps.
There was hardly any movement and the bra itself never felt too tight.
And, although it says this bra is for support level 3 and thus not meant to be for running, it was fine for short bursts on the treadmill. If you're doing a lot more running, I'd advise getting a bra with more support.

I bought a Shock Absorber Classic white Sports Bra in my "usual" size, realising it is probably NOT a good idea to buy bras on-line. My purchase confirmed this. I have been buying Tesco's cheap sports bras for many years and been very satisfied. I decided to go up market and have regretted my purchase ever since.
The bra is not very comfortable under the bust (won't stay flat)too tight and very difficult to fasten. I'm in my 60's with arthritis.
In future I will to stick to what I know or try on before purchasing.
Sadly, paying more doesn't mean a better product.

I bought this bra for jogging and am very please with it. Fits very well, looks pretty for a sports bra, everything stays in place so i can enjoy my run and not worry about the giggling.
