*Update: Since I first wrote that review over a year ago I've done several triathlons wearing this bra and still love it.
DO NOT measure yourself! DO NOT go to Victoria's Secret! Almost all internet calculators are incorrect and will give you the wrong size; many of the fitters at Victoria's Secret are not well-trained, and or will tell you that you are a size that they stock when you are not. Go to a NICE place like Macy's or something, where trained bra-fitters will help you. You will not like this bra if you buy the wrong size. Also, THIS IS A UK BRA. CONVERT YOUR CUP SIZE here before ordering [...]
I am a 36DDD and I conducted a looong search round the internet to find a good sports bra. Many of them were hideous or incredibly expensive, or promised things their reviews didn't back up. Then I found the shock absorber. Everywhere I went it had great reviews and it is among the cheapest of the big bust bras. I bought mine from Amazon because it had the option to return it free of charge and the other suppliers I found did not have that option available.
Get this bra! A very good sports bra for an average busted women is $45 anyway. I know the price varies by size, but mine was only $55! The cups are supportive and well constructed, and if you happen to dry off before working out again, the material is thick enough so that your girls aren't shining headlights at the world in the meantime.
The hooks on the back take some getting used to, but I just do what I do for a normal bra--hook it in front and slide the bra back around and fit it.Read more ›
Previous reviews that discuss the difficulty in getting the upper snaps done are correct. I cannot twist my arms back that far to undo them and I get help from my hubby to remove the Bra. When putting it on, I tried what one other lady said she did, and I did up the snaps with them in the front, then twisted the bra around to the proper position to put my arms in...that went well, but it doesn't move so well once it is damp with sweat. So, I just wore it until my husband was able to help...no big deal, I just put a tee-shirt on over it until then. I was a bit hesitant in ordering the size, though, as I used to be a 34D, but somehow in the past two years I've gone up to a 34DD...and I wasn't sure how this bra would fit. Let me just say that my worries were unfounded. I felt like I was binding my breasts, they were supported so well. There are some divider slings inside the cups so the breasts are not mashed together and the fit was very comfortable! I would encourage a visit to the SA website to see a diagram of the construction.
I have always worried about excessive breast movement breaking down connective tissue that keeps breasts from sagging, but running was great...I felt fully supported and did not have excessive bounce.Read more ›
Not with the Shock Absorber. The style of the bra is similar to regualr bras so you can get a good fit throughout, without being so cinched up that you can't breathe. It is tight enough that I find them uncomfortable to wear more than a couple hours so I don't know what I would recommend if you wear going to run a marathon, but for an hour at the gym and the drive to and from, it is fine.
The best part is, no bounce. The internal "slings" give your breasts a place to sit, without overly compressing them, most of the support comes from that and the band so be sure you get the right band size. The open band in the back is nice for airflow and if you need to make the top or bottom tighter or looser, you can which is nice. The technical fabrics used holds up after months and months of use. I find I can get about a year of gym time out of them (I run about 3-5 hours per week total, an hour at a time). You'll know when it is time to replace it.
The only other main drawback for me, is the placement of the padding on the arms. You can see on the photo how the wider part of the band is on the apex of the model's shoulder.Read more ›
