have a look at 'sweaty betty', I have a range of colours!
I do not like the sportsjock sports bras as I find that they are too big, do not compress what little I have and there is too much room in the shoulder strap to provide any support. - That's me, I wear xs or xxs in everything.
Shock Absorber have always been good, it's a matter of finding something you like when the product is available. They change their range so often.
Thanks both.I shall check out Sweaty Betty.
I've looked at all Shock Absorbers stocked in the running and sports shops near me. One of the problems (common to just about every manufacturer) is that they seem to think that boob size increases with chest size, so you can buy 32As and 34As but as you get up to a 38 (me) they all seem to start at a C cup. Bah! Also the compression type ones often only go up to a 36 for the same reason. And when you do get them in a 38 they expect you to be filling them with massive boobs so they're often about as long as a small vest!
I don't like the compression ones for running, as I find they're not quite supportive enough for me, but I do use them for some other sports and have one that's surprisingly good from H&M. Surprisingly because I wouldn't think of it as a sportswear shop, but they do have a sports section with some okay stuff and it's cheaper than Sweaty Betty. Also the one I have is quite short (the bottom is where you'd have a normal bra).
They seem to have a special sportswear range now, though might have to be in a bigger branch... I've got one of these: http://www.hm.com/gb/product/91797?article=91797-S
