Product & Fit

  • How do I know if my bra fits?

    Getting the right fit is important to a good performance
    To ensure your sports bra gives you the best support, here are some tips on a good fit:

    The Underband

    The band around the chest should be level front and back. It needs to be comfortable but firm. A good gauge to ensure that the underband fits well is being able to fit two fingers between the underband and your skin. Any more space and the band is too big and could cause friction.

    The Underband The Underband The Underband
    Perfect fit. The underband is firm and level the whole way round. There should only be a one to two inch give. Ensure the band is neither too loose nor too tight If the underband rides up at the back then the band is too big.

    The Cups

    The cup should contain the whole of the breast, with no creases and no cleavage on show.

    The Cups The Cups The Cups
    Perfect fit. Each breast is full contained If the breasts are squashed or cleavage is on show, the cup size is probably too small. If the fabric is gaping or wrinkling then this suggests the cup size is too big.

    The Shoulder Straps

    Sports bras come in different styles, usually a traditional U Back or Racer Back. The straps should be adjusted to fit securely on the shoulders with only one to two inch give.

    The Shoulder Straps The Shoulder Straps The Shoulder Straps
    Perfect fit. If you slide two fingers between the strap and the skin, there should have only a one to two inch give. If you slide two fingers between the strap and the skin, there should have only a one to two inch give. If straps fall off shoulders, tighten them so that they fit securely on the shoulders.

    Do the bounce test! Jump up and down to check that you feel supported and secure.

    If in doubt, we recommend you get professionally fitted
    as 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra.

  • What size should I order?

    Most customers will be comfortable ordering their usual bra size  Some customers find that Shock Absorber sports bras tend to fit snug at the band and fuller in the cups. If this is a concern you might consider ordering one band size larger than usual. Check your measurements using our size chart or the fitting guide.

    Please note that Shock Absorber Canada follows UK cup sizing conventions:

    Band sizes: 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44

    Cup sizes: A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, FF, G, GG, H, HH

  • How long should my Sports Bra last?

    A sports bra, like any piece of quality excersie gear, will eventually wear with use. How long a bra lasts depends on the frequency of wearing, laundering care and intensity of your activities. Watch out for stretched elastics and straps and faded tags that are signs that it might be time to retire your favorite bra and renew your wardrobe. We recommend replacing your sports bra every 6-12 months for optimal performance.
