Great bra, comfortable but not if you plan on wearing it all day. Not as supportive for running, but great for use at the gym.
I was looking for a sports bra for horseback riding. I found the Ultimate Run Bra on the Shock Absorber website under the Equestrian tab and am very happy. It is a perfect fit, gives total support, offers great freedom of movement and looks great.
Everything was handled quickly and efficiently, and I am delighted with my purchase. I plan to order again and am recommending it to my friends at the barn.
I have had many sports bra but a few weeks ago and came back from my run and my breast hurt, they bounced at lot, granted I do not have big breast, I am 36B but they hurt so much I looked for other options. I asked my running group for recommendations and a lot of the gals told me about Shockabsorber bras so I gave it a go. I ordered my bra 34B, when it got here I realized it was too tight around my torso (I have a wide back), I contacted them, they told me to order a bigger size, I got a free shipping code and they said I will get a return to sender label to return the other one. So I order the bigger size 36B. It fits perfectly, I have used it a few times and nothing bounces, everything it is where it supposed to be, I barely feel it on, very light bra and comfortable, the material looks and feels sturdy. I do need help putting it on, I can do the clips in the back on my own but the top clip I can not reach, maybe if you are super flexible you could but I have to get my husband to do it. I sent the other bra back and now I am waiting for my refund...Customer Services was great, not fast, it takes them like 2 days to get back to you but they are very helpful. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
I love this bra, the support and the shape is better than the original run bra!
This bra is amazing! I love that it is black, doesn’t have seams across my bust, and has a lot of support. It is great for at the gym or just for running after the kids. The only thing I don’t love is that the band on the bottom folds up making it less comfortable. It is still an amazing bra, and I will probably be getting another soon. Just make sure to size up on the band. I used a 32” in the fly bra, but a 34” in the multi sport and this run bra.
I purchased a Shock Absorber bra years ago, by chance at a specialty bra boutique and was VERY impressed by the support it provided. More recently, I finally admitted to myself that I had outgrown it (put on a few extra pounds) and I needed a new one with good support for my morning jogs and weekly soccer games. This bra is great! I’m a 34DD in Victoria Secret bras and purchased the same in this one, which was true to size. The bra covers all of my chest (there’s no cleavage poking out nor side-boob), so it is supportive! I would absolutely recommend this kind of padded bra for bigger chested women; without it, I don’t think it would be enough support, at least for my liking. The sports bra came quicker than expected in the mail without issue. My only complaint is that sometimes the hook that holds the straps in place pops off, leaving one strap free and I have to rehook it (even mid-workout); perhaps I can just double check that the hooks are securely in place before putting it on.
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 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.
|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 cup should contain the whole of the breast, with no creases and no cleavage on show.
|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.|
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.
|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. HW
