I have bought the shock absorber for years and never found anything nearly as supportive for long distance running and high impact workouts. However, my latest purchase was thinner material and noticeably less supportive when training. Have you changed the product at all? It's such a shame because when I compared my new bra to my old ones it was noticeably different on the lining and the thickness/strength of the material. The bra is now also more expensive! Please let me know if the old make is still available.

This is a little small but I am wearing it anyway and it is soo comfortable. I will buy another immediately but it will be one cup size larger.. I wish there were a shop in Sydney so I check if I should be a back size larger as well. Doing it up is hard but just possible.

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Great support!
Best sports bra I have ever bought, I even have it in both sizes and wouldn't hesitate to buy another one. Great support for someone with big boobs so I now have more confidence to run without worrying about any bounce etc. The clasps are an issue though and I do have to do up the top two and then pull it on over my head and then do up the second two, not too much of a problem but worth considering, especially as on my older bra the clasps have become out of shape as a consequence. However I am more than happy to overlook this!

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Fantastic support, snug fit
I bought this bra the other day after I caught my reflection while wearing an old sports bra and being horrified by the amount of bouncing that was going on. Just went on my first run with this one - what a huge difference! All the upper back ache I'd been putting down to bad posture has completely vanished, I've never felt so supported by a sports bra - and all without underwires! The straps are a little fiddly, but they seem to distribute support very effectively once on. My only real criticism is that the sizes are a bit off. I'm normally a 30E, but had to take a 30FF in this (the 30E was so tight it somehow gave me cleavage!) so maybe be aware of this if buying online. Otherwise perfect - can't wait to properly test it in my half marathon next weekend :)

Much as I love the firm support of the Max Sports Bra, which has given me so much freedom of movement in the gym, I simply cannot do up both the back straps from behind - and doubt anyone who could! To get it on I have to fasten the top strap before I climb into the half-fastened bra either over my head or by stepping into it (neither option is particularly comfortable) and then I arrange myself as best I can before doing up the bottom strap which thankfully is at the usual height of any bra. I would love to buy another Max Sports Bra because it's so great when I manage to get the darn thing on, but getting into it is almost a work-out before I even get to the gym, so I'm looking for something better which doesn't require me to be double-jointed - any suggestions welcome.

I wear this as an everyday bra and wear it till it literally falls apart. They last for at least 10 months. It gives great support and holds me all in. I hate having big boobs and this does a good job at concealing it for me. I have had several of these and love the black one. Just wish it was all black and no white on it as the white goes yuck after time.

Overall Review: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4 out of 5 4/5 Great support and you can actually fasten this one yourself
Having tried on another Shock Absorber sports bra and been unable to get the second strap fastened, they recommended in the store that I tried this one instead. It has a similar look and style to the other bra but it's so much easier to get on. It works really well, minimising bounce, and it's really comfortable on. The straps are wide and well padded, which means they stay on my shoulders (something that I often struggle with with bras). Overall a great fit.
