Best sports bra I own!

No jiggle, holds everything in place
Length of time to put on
Fab bra. I wear a 34G so a good sports bra is extremely important. I bought mine 1 size smaller than my normal bra size and it's excellent. Best sports bra I own by far and can wear it mountain biking as well which I can't with my other sports bras.

Love it

I find it a lot easier to put on than any sports bra I have had previously
Feels soft and comfortable
Very supportive
Pricey

Would look a bit odd worn as a crop top (even though it has reflective bits)
I love this bra. The shop assistant in John Lewis advised me that most people do the top fastening up first, put it on over their heads, and then do up the back fastening. HOWEVER, I am a woman who has NEVER been able to do a bra up behind my back. I find it really really easy to do the main bra fastening up with it at the front, then spin it round to the back, put my arms in and then reach back over my shoulders to do up the top fastening (which is like a bikini fastening). Done.
The bra is really comfortable to run it. I don't notice it at all and, perhaps more importantly, I don't notice my boobs at all!
Lovely soft feel. Not like the nylon feel of some sports bras.
Feels very supportive and comfortable. Can't fault it other than the price but you get what you pay for.

A very supportive bra! Fantastic for running and very comfortable.

Really comfortable and no bouncing!!!!! I had previously worn the b109 and always had to use "bodyglide" where the shock absorber name was middle front but did not need to use this and there was no chaffing! Excellent bra best ever worn in 20 years of running.
I ordered the same size as my bra size as I always do with my sports bras (a 36 E) it is a little smaller round the chest than earlier incarnations of Shock Absorber bras and I could barely do it up which was disappointing. I reordered a 38 F and it fits perfectly.. just something to bear in mind when ordering.
I'm an cross country runner - the Shock Absorber is really comfortable and offers great support even over long distances and training sessions. Well worth every penny! This bra is supportive, comfortable and well made. There is a feeling of quality about the product so although it is more expensive than many, it is worth it!

great support, best sports bra i have

comfortable, hart rate monitor its under the strap nicely. Definately less bounce than my previous bra.
difficult to put on at first.I found the trick was once i had the fit right, to leave the top clasp fastened and to put on over my head then fasten the bottom clasp. Even after washing this works without much adjustment.Only downside with this bra is it can get a bit sweaty, does not wick as well as some.
fantastic, expensive but well worth the cost.

Designed by Houdini!

Supportive.
2 very fiddly fastenings. Too hot.
It takes me 10 minutes to get the thing on. After wearing it twice I've given up & gone back to old bras that I don't have to fight with. Would not recommend this, or buy one again.
