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.

Colour Name: Graphic PrintSize: Size 34E Verified Purchase
Being larger in bust I've always struggled to find a sports bra that works well. I'm a 34 E and this fits perfect. I've had this before in the black and it was great so a no brainer to buy this one. Only thing I will comment on and which lowers by one star is that it's not bright blue like the picture shows but a dull green. Luckily I use it for sports and not to show off so I don't really care too much. It just would of been nice to have a snazzier sports bra rather than just plain black. Either way it works well with little to no bounce. I do high impact sports such as running and boot camps and it holds me in well.
In regards to the straps I find them very easy. Others have mentioned they find it hard with the second strap.. Hint to help is do the top fastening up before you put it on then put it on over your head like an over the head sports bra and then do the lower fastening up like you would a normal bra. No shoulders will pop out that way and you don't spend half an hour bending yourself like a pretzel trying to do it up.
Unlike other sports bras this is true to size so no need to order a size up or down.

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.

Colour Name: Graphic PrintSize: Size 32DD Verified Purchase
For years, I have sworn by wearing only Enell bras, believing there was nothing out there which would match that level of support. However, now that I am training for a marathon, I decided that the Enell may be prone to chafing over long distances and so I decided to try a Shock Absorber. I must say, I have been pleasantly surprised! I last tried their products more than 10 years ago and I believe they've really improved since then. I'm a 32DD and so good support is paramount. I'm pleased to say that this bra really does keep everything pretty much still. I haven't yet tried it on a long-distance run, so can't comment on whether or not it chafes but for now I am very happy with my 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)

Colour Name: WhiteSize: 34D (Manufacturer Size: 90D) Verified Purchase
I bought this in both black and white quite a few years ago and decided to get the same again. After trying on several sports bras from different brands, I just could not seem to find any that gave the same amount of support as these so ended up buying the same again. These are a great all rounder for low impact exercise and high impact. If you're unsure which sports bra to go for to suit your needs, I would suggest having a look on the Shock Absorber website as there is a very helpful guide that narrows down the most suitable sports bra for you.

I have found the fabric quality to be slightly different and that they are made by different manufacturers. I still much prefer the older version as the fabric is softer but these work just as great and fit the same!

I don't agree with the reviews that say they are too small! I'm a UK 34D/EU 75D, I wear a size 10, my under bust measures 30" - this does not mean I should be a 30 back as that is not how most bras are made. If you change size, change to a sister size and never stay with the same cup size - for example I would go from a 34D to 36C or 32DD. I used to work in a lingerie shop and a lot of women actually wear the wrong size. I would recommend that you get professionally measured or read up on how to correctly measure yourself but also remember that styles and sizing do vary between brands and manufacturer so you may not alway be the same size. The other thing is when you first wear/try a bra, wear it on the last outermost hook (not the tightest) as the bra loosens over time, you move onto the next hook to tighten.

There are two sets of hooks on the back which of course people have said is difficult to reach - I fasten up back to front and swivel round.. It's as simple as that!
