Shock AbsorberActive Multi Sports Bra


4.2 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 47 reviewsRead all reviews


If you prefer no wires when you exercise, then this is a great supportive option. It holds your boobs snugly to your chest to minimise the jiggle, and the breathable fabric means it’s super comfortable.

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

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!

Sizing poor

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

This is a supportive bra but the fact the back sizes are smaller than standard bras is ridiculous. I buy a 40H and I have to use TWO bra extenders for it to fit and it’s still a bit tight. The problem with this is that the friction causes cuts along my back and i’m covered in scabs. I run and I love to run so I put up with this because I want to run but what about those women who don’t have the confidence to be active particularly if they can’t find comfortable sportswear? Come on manufacturers, you can/must do better than this!!!

I love this sports bra!

Before discovering Bravissimo, I was used to squashing myself into sports bras, where the tightness would give me a bit of support but certainly not comfort. I also find wired sports bras really uncomfortable. When I tried this one, it was a revelation. The size is slightly different to others I have bought from Bravissimo, I went up a chest size. With it not being underwired, it is so comfortable to wear. The double clasps at the back make me feel super supported. I can run, do pilates, lift weights, whatever I want to, and I never find myself feeling uncomfortable or concerned about the bra. It is fantastic. On the site ordering a second one for back up right now. I hope Bravissimo never stop making this bra!

I ordered my be size in this, I expect sport bras to be tighter than normal, but wow, I really struggled to get the bra round me it was so small and stiff, when I did eventually, I’m not sure where their sizes have come from, there was no way my boobs were fitting in that! The sizes I feel are way out! I buy all my bras from here and always the same size! But there was no way this bra was fitting anywhere near me!
