Shock AbsorberD+ Max Sports Bra


4.2 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 88 reviewsRead all reviews


This non-wired style gives plenty of coverage and is made from a quick-drying breathable fabric. The bra holds your boobs close to your chest to minimise jiggle and the clever seaming separates your boobs (no mono-boob here!). The fabric inside the cups is smooth and the straps and hook and eye are padded for extra comfort.

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.

Fantastic hold for high activity

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

I purchased this bra on the recommendation of a friend and bought two more since. It's the most effective sports bra I own, holding my boobs even during intense training including martial arts and running. My only regret is that Shock Absorber doesn't offer racerback style bras in the "bigger" range, because the straps are not adaptable and thus show under tank tops. Then again, with a hold that good, this is just me nitpicking.

First sports bra I have ever found that actually works!

I go running, do zumba and aerobics classes as well as BodyPump in this bra and I can't believe 1) how little bounce there is and 2) how well it has lasted (over a year with regular use and it has only just started to slacken). Definitely try this on as the back is TIGHT - but once you're in it, no boob is going anywhere! If you're sceptical about non-wired, give it a go - I couldn't ask for better support.

This bra fits perfectly I ordered my usual size (34 G) and it's the perfect fit. I've struggled to find a sports bra that actually supports my bust and this one is perfect!

Wide Top Side

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

Ok so I bought this bra a while ago specifically for yoga days where I'm doing inverted poses. It truly is the only sports bra I found that keeps the ladies from suffocating my face or smothering me in those poses. I specifically wanted to share that this style runs wide from armpit to armpit. (Something I never thought to consider) So it does chafe me and can make for a little discomfort if you are more narrow in your body there. And like the other reviews it does run tighter that you may be expecting. I ended up purchasing in my sister size to account for this. Thank goodness, otherwise I would not have been able to fasten it around my ribs. But like I said, I won't suffocate - so I'm still winning :)

I visited the Manchester store as I really wanted a sports bra to fit me well and wanted advice. I asked for one with the firmest/best support for running and high impact support, but if this is it - it's very disappointing. It's embarrassing to run wearing it (because of the bounce). The inner seams cross my breast and I can feel them because of the movement when running. Severe lack of support when running or just on the exercise/spinning bike. Not even great for yoga. I have had to resort to wearing a sport jock compression bra over the top. Okay for walking, I'll need to find a bra shop with a better range if this is the most supportive Bravissimo stock. I need to get one which actually gives support as this does not do the job.

Best sports bra ever

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

This is the sports bra I have been waiting my whole life for! It does not give you a defined, pointy shape... what it does is strap your boobs to your chest like bandages on a mummy! Which is exactly what you want if you have big boobs and like to run. I only wish I had discovered this bra sooner. I will never need to try another. Like the other reviews have said I went up a band size and down a cup size and the fit is amazing.
