Every bra and bikin top that I own is a 32F and fits me perfectly.
Worn on 5k trial run, best sports bra ever owned.
Comfortable, sits perfectly and reduces any unwanted bounce to absolute zero - big thumbs up from me.

Colour Name: White/SilverSize: 36 D Verified Purchase
I have to say that I once owned a Shock Absorber Bra many many years ago when they first came out and back then there was just one version and it was frankly useless and uncomfortable.
Thankfully things have moved on a lot since then, and the 'Run' version in their line (model B5044) is beyond superb.
I'm fairly ample in the chest region (34DD) and so wanted a good firm sports bra to help reduce the pain from jumping around during my Insanity workouts.
A note on sizing - because of their extreme restrictivness, sports bras by nature do not have much give to them, so you may need to adjust your regular sizing methods. My best advise, if it all possible, is to try a few on in a department store to find your correct size. I'm a small 34 across the ribcage normally, however as there is practically no give (for good reason) in the material, so I needed to go up to a 36. This would mean that my cup size would need to go down to a D to get the correct cup size. If it's not possible to try before you buy, I would suggest that with any brand of sports bra to go up one size in the ribcage, and down one size in the cup to get the correct fit.
The result for me was an asbsolute perfect fit. Comfortable, sits perfectly and reduces any unwanted bounce to absolute zero - big thumbs up from me.
And the added bonus for me is that here in Cyprus these bras set you back 60 Euros which is just nuts, but I purchased mine on amazon for less than half that.
Dont worry either if you are ample, and feel put off by the 'no wire' aspect of these bras, trust me, your babies are going nowhere in this bra, and with no wire, you just have more comfort.
I'm now just planning on buying more of these while they are at this price.

Colour Name: Black/PinkSize: 30 DD Verified Purchase
I'd seen lots of reviews stating that the back fits small on these sports bras, but silly me thought I'd be OK with my regular size seeing as I only wear a 30 back. Boy was I wrong. So so wrong. After trying on a 30DD, it wasn't just a bit small, it was 8 INCHES shorter around the back than it should be. I couldn't even reach the straps together let alone do them up. And it wasn't much better when stretched. I actually strained my arm trying to do it up thinking maybe it just needed to stretch a bit. I'm sending it back and going up 2 back sizes it was that small, hopefully that will fit better. More accurately, I'm closer to 29 inches on my back, but here I am about to buy a 34 back bra.

Please, if you're going to buy this bra, absolutely go up a back size. Small sizing is a massive understatement.

Colour Name: Black/SilverSize: 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.

Colour Name: Black/SilverSize: 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).

Colour Name: Black/SilverSize: 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.

Colour Name: White/SilverSize: 32 E Verified Purchase
This is without a doubt the best sports bra I've found. It does come up a bit small on the back so I had to go up a back size and down a cup size (I bought my normal size first and couldn't breathe properly - not ideal when running). Now that I've got a properly-fitting one it does its job fantastically.

Colour Name: White/SilverSize: 34 F Verified Purchase
I am a Fitness Instructor, I teach between 20 and 30 classes a week and so support for the bust is a high priority. I have been wearing Shock Absorber bras since I first started teaching fitness sessions. I find this racer back sports bra the most comfortable of them all, it provides good support if you wear a size smaller - I normally wear a G cup but in the sports range I wear an F.
I found Amazon wear selling them at the best price, no doubt I will be buying more. I currently have five ( in differnet colours) They wash well but wearing and washing as often as I do will soon wear them out.
This is a good quality product - its a must if you perform high impact activities!
