Description

If you prefer no wires when you exercise, then this is a great supportive option. It’s a compression sports bra, so it holds your boobs snug to your chest to minimise the bounce and the breathable fabric keeps you comfortable while you run, jump or dance!

This style comes up small in the back, so we suggest going up a back size from your usual but keeping the cup size the same.

Really disappointed

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I love Bravissimo bras and bikinis so was surprised by this item. I ordered my normal size and it just didn't give the support needed. I would not be comfortable running in this one! I really would love Bravisomo to do a brooks style sports bra with adjustable straps so you can choose the support level, it would be amazing! But, never the less, ended up sending this one back as it was not the product for me.

Do not go up a size!

Review published on:

Customer rating:1 out of 5 stars

I bought this bra as I already have two Shock Absorber bras, both of which fit well and are comfortable. Sadly, I followed the advice given by Bravissimo on the selling page for this bra, and went up a back size. This was a big mistake. When I first tried it on at home it looked ok and was comfortable so decided to keep it. However, after my first Zumba class I realised I had made a mistake. It doesn't support my boobs at all - they bounce all over the place, which is very painful at certain times of the month. I persevered with it, thinking it might fit better after I washed it, but sadly no. I went for a run in it and all I could hear was the sound of my boobs clapping together. It would have been funny if it wasn't so painful. I obviously can't return this bra, so will keep it for yoga classes only. I had just wished I'd bought it in my normal size as my other two Shock Absorber bras are great and are still a good fit and comfortable despite being 5 years old. I love all the items I have bought from Bravissimo except for this bra. I will continue to purchase from Bravissimo, but I do think they need to rethink the sizing advice with this particular bra.

Buying my second

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

I have been wearing this bra in grey for over 6 months. It pays to read the reviews for fit guidance with all purchases as I saw several for this bra that said to go up a size in the chest. I'm glad I did, I'm a 32FF, measured twice in store in May 18 and Nov 19, I ordered a 34FF and have found it perfect, with a snug fit on the chest band. I run 4-5k three times a week, I find this bra to be one of the best I've tried, my boobs don't bounce (I have to add a Boobuddy with my other older bras), I'm so impressed I'm retiring my older bra and getting another one of these. Many seem to struggle with the upper back clasp, I do them both up in front and swing it round, its tight but doable. Thank you Bravissimo for being the brilliant service that you are. Visiting your stores is always a lovely experience, and I've had several online chats too. Your staff are a credit to you!

Just bought a 5th one...

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

This is my go to sports bra - years ago I used to have two in my actual size (which like the other reviews say, were too small), but having bought more in the next band size up, I've found it's a perfect fit. No bounce whatsoever. I now have a selection on rotation. I've tried other sports bras, but haven't found any quite as secure and comfortable as this. It does take a bit of practise to do up the top clasp, but once you're in, you're fine.

A good sports bra for horse riding

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

This is comfortable, and once you know where to put your hands the upper clasp, I found the upper clasp easy to do up. It is comfortable and supportive, but not attractive. I went up a back size and kept cups size as usual and it fits well. Beware, though, it definitely gives the uniboob look. However, for horse riding in winter, where you will probably have a jacket on, no-one can see it. I often wear a 'boobband' with other bras but didn't need it with this one. Bravissimo, you should stock boobbands - fantastic bits of kit for the well endowed. Great therefore for winter pursuits, when you can hide the uniboob but need the support without an underwire.

Good bra!

I’ve had these for years and recently bought the Bravissimo own brand because they only sold the plain black Shock Absorbers in the shop - comparing these two bras: the Shock Absorber is far superior with reliable support throughout your whole workout.

Impressive Performance

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

Went into the shop to ensure I got the right size. Followed written advice and tried next size up (usually a 32F, but tried a 34F). Bra felt snug and comfortable but there was still jiggling. Told her that I needed more support for high intensity workouts and under the assistant’s advice, we decided to give my right size (32F) a go. It was predictably tighter and cup size was perfect. No jiggling and waited till my workout session was over before I wrote this review. I thought the heavy underarm material may cause a bit of chaffing during the workout, but it didn’t trouble me. Jogging wasn’t a problem and my chest was firmly supported. I am more than pleased with this bra. Ordered 2 more. Arriving today. Can’t wait.

Hard to do up...but worth the effort

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

One has to have quite flexible arms to reach behind to do up the second tier on the back-strap of this bra - but if you can, the result for me was a comfortable fit with plenty of support. It took 2 attempts to find the right size of Shock Absorber and I settled on the 36HH. Following surgery I now have one smaller (pert) boob and one that's all original and I dreaded finding a bra to run in due to the asymmetry and of course I needed to support both girls equally! I think the compression approach of wire-free sports bras has been excellent in finding a good compromise for mis-matched sized boobs. At the same time I have also purchased a Royce Impact-Free sports bra - going smaller in the cup each time I sent for one - third attempt and I found the level of compression needed to give a reasonable level of support (36GG). Overall I'd say the Royce allows more bounce than this bra, and has a more comfortable wide cottony under-band and higher neck-line which adds security and is also easier to put on. They are both good for different reasons... It's going to be the Shock Absorber for higher impact/running and the Royce for gardening and yoga/pilates. Thanks to Bravissimo for all their help both on the telephone and via the web-chat on this sports bra journey :-)
