Shock Absorber Run Bra
I was really disappointed with this specialist running bra - I found the fit to be uncomfortably tight and it was less supportive than I am used to. Strangely I seem to get more support from the SB Stamina bra these days, or maybe it's just more comfortable? Either way, I returned it as it was not for me.

A good, sturdy bra for those high impact days. Somewhat snug, both round the ribs and in the cup. I'm usually 32DD - I maybe should have ordered 34DD. There's certainly no bounce in it...
Easy to get on and off, despite the extra clip at the back.

Always buy bigger chest size than you need
Truly a great design and comfortable. But you have to go up a size compared to your normal bra size.

Jump Jump Jump!
I tried this bra on during the sale and was happy. The sales assistant was lovely and helpful and suggested that I look at a smaller size. I thought I was a 36D for years but have been re-educated lately in the ways of bra fitting. When being poured in to the 34DD I could barely breath. BUT, after a body combat class with no jiggling (from my bra area anyway), I am sold. Now... I haven't run in it yet, but we'll see.

Best running support top ever
I have been wearing this particular running bra for many years and have found it to be the best one for support and comfort all round.

The perfect fit
I have purchased many sports bras over the last few years, and this is the first sports bra to fit my back and cup size perfectly, and leaves no room for bounce whilst remaining comfortable - even on a hot day.

comfy and supportive, cups come up big
This is my first shock absorber and although it is very comfortable the cups seem to come up bigger than my other brand sports bra of the same size. I have the sweaty betty run bra in the same size which fits perfectly.

Very hard to put on
This is very tight & difficult to put on and take off. Found that I need to put it on over my head, then contort myself to attach the straps (they'll fall down if I don't). While doing so, my hair got caught in the snap and tore out of my scalp. Not only did I then go to the gym with a sore spot on my scalp, but the tuft of hair that was caught in the snap kept tickling me while I worked out. Next time that I wear this, I'll put my hair up first, then go through my stretching routine to make sure I don't hurt myself trying to put it on.

Good intense workout bra
Although I found that there was some boob jumping going on during workout I think that may be down to the fact that I think I have gone down a size since purchasing it. Think I will get the next size down because it feels a little baggy at the front. The clip at the back (top of shoulders) is do-upable by yourself if you have good range of movement in your shoulders. If not, I'd get someone to fasten you in it.

Comfortable but cups come up big
I have a number of sports bras but not a Shock Absorber, having heard great things I thought i'd get one. The straps and fabric are really comfy but the cups come up quite big and are baggy compared to my other sports bras of the same size. I've ordered the same bra in a smaller cup size in the hope that it'll fit better.
