Shock AbsorberActive Multi Sports Bra


4.4 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 43 reviewsRead all reviews


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.

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

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 :-)

I'm a 30FF but the lady who fitted me gave me a 32G in this bra and it's perfect. Running in it felt fantastic!!

Great sports bra

Since I started using Shock Absorber sports bras a few years ago, I wouldn't use any other. They really do hold your boobs comfortably, but firmly. I am a 32G, so have a lot to hold in place! I run, do circuit training and HIIT with mine - this bra works every time. Re comments on it being a tight bra - yes, it is pretty close-fitting, but that's what you need if you're going to be exercising vigorously. I bought my usual bra size and it fits perfectly.

Petty but you need a PA to get into it

I like the look of this bra. I went up a band size after reviews stating it's tight and the overall fit was good but I could not for the life of me do the second clasp up! Which meant that it had to be returned. If you have an assistant to strap you in then it's maybe not so bad and it does look nice but without the second clasp there was too much bounce...

The only sports bra I will ever buy!

I am REALLY surprised by all of the negative reviews below... I bought this sports bra for the first time about 5 years ago and have never looked back! I've since bought multiple ones and wouldn't buy any others. I've run a number of half marathons and one full marathon in one, and more recently wear it in the gym doing weights and gym classes (lots of jumping). Basically, its stretchy and comfortable (especially after you've worn it a couple of time), absorbs sweat, doesn't rub and stops any bouncing around. Like the reviews below; comes up small around the back, so just go up a back size. For me I keep the cup size which works well.

Few mixed reviews on this, and yes you need to go up a back size, but other than that it’s fantastic, and I am very fussy when it comes to sports bras! Firm, supportive, comfortable; strong enough for running, comfy enough for yoga!
