Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Brilliant for running
As a keen trail runner, I can't overstate how great this bra is for high impact activities. Even though putting it on did require some acrobatic skills at first, I got used to it quite quickly - and the support is well worth the effort. I initially ordered a slightly larger size than I should have - so it gave in a bit quicker than I expected, but nevertheless it was so comfy I ended up wearing it instead of my normal bra.

This is a great bra and doesn't make your boobs look like one. Really supportive. Only downside was in doing up the catches especially the top one as you need to reach up quite high. I had a fitting in store and the bra was done up for me so didn't realise that this would be an issue.

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 Very comfy!
I have been experiencing a fair bit of chafing and a horrible red raw mark under my boobies, and on the advice of one of the girls in Customer Service, I popped into my local store to buy a sports bra. I was going to try the D+Max bra, also by Shock Absorber, but on a 38H, it just would fasten. Emma, my fitter, suggested this bra and we were good to go! I ended up in a 38GG and its fab! The effect of having a 'uniboob' almost, is hard to get used to at first, but I love this bra! I went around town, to the cinema and to an early dinner and felt very comfy in this. Just a bummer that they didn't have this in white.

I tried this on in store as I needed something really supportive but flexible for my work. A great fit, and so comfortable, although I would never be brave enough to wear it as outerwear in the gym!

I bought this sports bra a few years ago and have frankly worn it out...so decided to buy it again. This time round I do feel that the quality of the material is not as good - and looking at other peoples advice I decided to buy a larger back size, this was not a good idea and I didn't feel as supported. I would advise people not to do this and stick to their bra size. Just ordered it again in my actual size so keeping my fingers crossed for a better fit :)

Overall Review: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5 out of 5 5/5 best sports bra ever!
I love this sports bra - having after having trouble with the panache one (after my original panache one came to bits after many years) the lady in the shop recommended this one. It's brilliant -0 and you CAN do up the top back fastening yourself. Had it for nearly 5 months now, wear it 3-5 times a week and it gets washed every week too. It's still going strong too. Will definitely buy another one of these to replace this one. oh, and no bounce either (and it's really comfy to wear all day too, just in case you need to!)

My boobs are very heavy and so I need a lot of support, this sports bra does the job very well! I can not fasten it so i do it up completely and pull it over my head so no problem! I would recommend to buy a smaller cupsize so it will pull you in better! Yes, I get a uniboob however it does not look bad, because the shape is still rounded at the sides!
