Great bra but be open-minded and prepared to go for a different size!

Comfortable, supportive and doesn't chafe. Fits brilliantly and looks great.
Very pricey for a single item of kit. Had to save up for it!
I'm a 36B but had to go for a 36A in this bra, as the B cup was a bit baggy around my breasts. Other than that it's great, looks brilliant and is the most comfortable sports bra I've ever worn.

Worth the money in the short term but be prepared to replace if you're bigger than average!

This is a great bra to run in; very supportive, minimal bounce; easy to wash; looks nice
The back strap hooks on mine are gradually splitting away from their seam. This is fine for the first couple as I can select a different hook, but will soon have to replace. I can only assume this is because of the continuous impact. I've had it 4 months and run twice a week.
Not a bad bra for middle sizes but not sure it's quality withstands the impact of a 'fuller' bust!

Great product which limits bounce!

- Secure fit which at first feels as though you wont fit in it, however tuck yourself in and you are well away
- wicking properties are second to none (no drips!)
- don't feel you need to keep undoing the top clasp - just leave it done up
- not so great if doing a mixed workout as lying on the floor with this on is a little uncomfortable (but then its a running bra!)
Pricy product but well worth it.

A great bra for support but I prefer the old model as the two adjustable clips come undone all the time

The first sports bra that seems to fit me properly. It's very comfortable and gives great support.
The two adjustable hooks often pop off while I'm running. The top clasp and the back strap still offer enough support for me but it's rather annoying.
good value for money but I'd make sure I had it fitted properly next time so that the hooks on the back didn't come undone all the time.

The first running bra that has actually ben comfortable and controlled 'the bounce!!'

Being a well endowed lady I have found it a nightmare to find a running bra - they are all comfortable in the shop.....but there lies the problem in that you cannot run in them in the changing room!!. The Shock Absorber is fantastic though ...I have bought lots and this is by far the best. It is supportive and does have a lot of control to.
This bra takes a bit of setting up and the instructions could be clearer but when done it is fab.
The best and I already want to get another !!!
