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.

No bounce at all with this bra - worth every penny

No chest movement felt at all with this bra.
Could be worn by itself as a crop top maybe.
Nice back to it.
Comfortable to wear.
High wicking ability.
Quite pricey but then you get what you pay for.
Felt a bit restrictive the first time I wore it but soon got used to it.
It's quite different to the usual shockabosrber bras I have had which just resemble a normal bra. I'm a 34C so medium I guess and it definitely does the job required of it. I used vouchers I was given to buy this otherwise I would have been reluctant to spend this much money, but now I have one, I will spend out of my own pocket in the future!
