Love this bra - great for a larger bust!,
This review is from: Shock Absorber S5044 Womens Run Bra (Apparel)
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!

Hi I'm not sure what size to get for myself. Sometimes 34c is just right for me sometimes it is loose. Should I get a size 34B or 34C for a sports bra? I'll be running (not always) and cycling. Please help me which size to get. Thank you so much!

I'm not the original reviewer, but I have had this bra for nearly three years and it is still going strong after many washes at 40 or 30 degrees.

I found it way too hard to put on :( I didn't think my shoulders were that inflexible... I was hoping I was somehow doing it a stupid way or something. Alas.

I've found it is possible to do the top clip up and slide the bra over your head. I tried to do the clip up and also had your problem!

But surely you still have to clip up the other part behind your back? >.<
I seriously can't do either clips up behind me unless they're really loose. I think it's too late for me to return this too. :(
I prefer the Enell.

I JUST MANAGED TO DO UP THE CLIP! :D
I thought you would want to be updated on this important life event. xD
I was honestly re-reading these reviews for tips, thinking I would sell my unworn shock absorber. I did some arm stretches and BOOM managed to do it (not the way you said, I tried and failed at that).
My only worry is that I don't always succeed and also, I'm worried I'm stretching it out since I can't reach to do up the clip from where it is, I have to pull quite far and clip.
Maybe this will help somebody else...
