Was not too sure when I first tried this on. Although my boobs seemed contained the bra seemed to squash them and with a t shirt on it looked like I was flat chested. Unfortunately I think this issue is more to do with having children than the bras fault. I got a 34f and although I had a little bit of movement when I jumped about at class it was fine. Class was boot camp style so a bit of everything and I was not conscious of any movement.
Before trying the Run bra, I had to wear a sports bra with a compression crop top to get the support I need but this bra is fine on its own. I'm generally a 34F but do go up to a 36F for this. It's still plenty tight enough. I solve the tricky fastenings by doing up the bottom strap first, at the front, then twizzling it round and doing up the top clip by reaching back over my head. It washes and dries really well and is very comfortable even on long runs. I wish there were a FF version, which I could do with when I'm pre-menstrual!
Perfect fit, comfortable to wear, doesn't rub or move around. It washes well and dries quickly. The new colours are lovely - it's great to feel that you look good even when you're exercising!
Yet to find a bra that fits when I put it on before exercise and still fits after I've sweated buckets but this one is pretty close because of the second clasp at the top.
I am very pleased with quick delivery. The bra fits perfectly. Bouncing problem is solved at last! Do not like the back clip.
Fantastic - I now have two. I am a dancer and this this the first 'activity' bra I have had that truly holds my boobs completely firm when moving about energetically and jumping up and down!! And, it's SO comfortable.
This is my third Run Bra. Best of the shock absorbers for running. I buy my regular size 34e and its perfect. Would give it a five stars save for the fact I do find on long distances it can start to pull on your upper spine. I blame done of this on the upper clip being tight but unfortunately this is what makes it so comfortable especially if you are larger.
Great bra overall despite this.
RUN Bra is could't be better~!
This is a really comfortable and there is a possibility. I'm wearing a bra exercise. When you exercise a lot of movement of the chest will be up so much. This not only helps prevent discomfort when exercising. As well as the relief of chest pain, so I got a sense of stability. I very much recommend it. I have all the women wear a sports bra during exercise, and I think in that particular, to recommend that you wear a bra idea.
This is a very comfortable bra - I've got it in a 38E and it doesn't rub even on a longer run which is a rare and lovely thing!
I have this in a blue already but forgot how tight across the chest they run. I always go up from a 32 to a 34. Bra is fab no moving at all!
Found it impossible to do up the top clasp, just couldn't get the hang of it. Felt like I'd done a workout wrestling it, before I'd even got started. For this reason, will not buy again and will look out for bras without this feature. For those more dextrous than I, then go for it... it does what it says on the tin.
Selaine says: two options to get in this bra - keep top fastening done up, pull over head, and do up bottom one behind; or do up bottom one at front, spin around, and reach over top to do up top one once in.
I brought this sports bra to use for running & zumba., Its fantastic - a great fit. I brought my usual size and it fits well - everything stays where it should & no black eyes! . Was concerned the first time that I used it that I wouldn't be able to get the top clasp fastened, but after a couple of attempts I soon grasped it. I would definately buy another one of these.
This bra is absolutely brilliant - no bounce whatsoever! Would not hesitate to recommend.
A fantastic sports bra, no movement whatsoever & a really gorgeous alternative to plain black or white bras (i bought mine in pink)
I would buy in your normal Bra size.
Wonderful customer service from Less Bounce also, will definitely order from them again.
I found the cup size on this model slightly bigger than on my other Shock Absorber (Active Sports) with the same size on the label. So while one fit perfectly, this actually was bouncy :/
This is a superb bra and the 3rd I have purchased recently to replace Enell bras that had seen better days. I'm a regular runner (30 - 40m weekly) and bust size 34C. I need a bra that is easy to wash and dry and more importantly, gives me the support needed. This bra does all of this really well and now after 7 years of buying Enell I am now a Shock Absorber convert.
The only negative I have is that I was disappointed that Less Bounce didn't actually have this bra in stock when I ordered it. This wasn't made entirely clear at the order stage and had I known this I would have ordered elsewhere. It wasn't until I contacted them to locate the delivery, I found out that they were still awaiting a delivery from their supplier. I continued with the order because I particularly wanted this colour.
After being advised to try this bra, by the Less Bounce ladies at the Brighton Marathon Expo, I now have 2!!
This is the most comfortable bra I have ever used for running, I used to think my old Nike bra was good but its not as good as the Shock absorber range.
The straps are cushioned so they don't rub across my shoulders, it feels quite tight when you first put it on but once I started running its so comfortable and doesn't move around.
I would definitely recommend them :0)
I love this bra. It is the best bra I have ever tried for running and other activities( I have tried quite a few). It can feel a bit heavy on the shoulders but there is no boobie movement and you keep a nice bust shape too. I have decided not to try any others any more because they just do not compare even the more expencive ones. 38F
Great for running/jogging, even just for everyday wear. Sizes are a little tight - but they're supposed to be. I love this bra!!
Amazing, the best sports bra I have had. Also wore it to run marathon and it was great.
Fits to size. I normally wear 36D and the same size was just right with this sports bra. I use it for running and roller derby. Offers great support and looks nice. I need to fasten the upper clasp before I put the bra on and the lower one after that, but this works fine for me. Fast delivery.
Great sportsbra and ordering from this website worked very well and my orden came very fast, even I live in Spain! This is a must product for sporty women all around the world.
At long last a bra that I can jog in and do 'jumping jacks" without fear of having 2 black eyes unless I pin my boobs down with my hands!!! Definitely worth purchasing.
This is the third sports bra of this kind that I have purchased, it is great for high impact sports, I do military fitness and it supports me throughout the various exercises that I do. I wouldn't buy any other sports bra. I also love the new colours :-)
very good fit. soft and comfortable.
I bought this for my keep fit aerobic class and I have to say it is a good fit and I feel very confident and secure wearing it. Everything is held in place and I would recommend it
I love this bra and would highly recommend it for any larger or heavy breasted women who love to run. It has great support and is very comfortable, nothing bouncing anywhere. The size I bought is 36DD., normaly I would buy a 34DD bra, so I have gone up one size but not in the cup. The great colours are a bonus, no more boring running bras. I have tried lots of different sports bra and always come back to Shock Absorbers bra, this one is my favourite. I live in Australia and find Less Bounce is the best place to buy my sports bras.
I bought this bra 38C size, It fits pefectly. Very comfortable, soft fabric. I use it for high impact sports like running and Im very satisfied.
I would definately recommend this sports bra to others. I like the clip at the back the sports bra Is very comfortable to wear. Im 36DD and i found this bra to be very supportive and i use this bra when i do aerobics. I liked it so much i had to buy another one when you work out and your wearing this bra you really feel the reduction in bounce. its well worth it.
It seamed that I should buy this model one number bigger. The cut is good and is comfortable for any sport - bra supports well.... but it is too tight under the armpits and around my ribcage.
I bought the exact same size as my normal bras and it fits perfectly! Very easy to put on and take off. The clip at the top is great as it ensures that the straps don't move around over your shoulders. No chafing! Best bra I've ever run in!
Very comfortable and great support.
This is the best sports bra that I've ever tried on; great support and no bounce at all!
However not sure if the band was tight or was it supposed to be that way to provide the support needed.
Overall, great buy!
The comfort and effectiveness of this bra (absolutely no bounce at all) delivers totally. I ordered a 38C, which has always been my bra size, but found it too tight around the chest. With hindsight I would have ordered 40C. I got round this by making a little 'extension' for the back strap by cutting off the fastener sections from a cheap sports bra I had (one that didn't work) and stitching them together. This way I didn't have to modify my lovely new bra in any way. So, yes, it's a fabulous product but much tighter than I expected for a 38 so pay very careful attention to the sizing before you order.
Second time I've chosen this bra and it still hasn't let me down - literally or figuratively. Lovely, soft fabric, great support and looks good. I've seen some reviews complaining that it's difficult to do up - trick is to do the top fastening first, then put it over your head and do up the bottom fastening. The blue/yellow combo is stunning. When these wear out I'll be back for more.
Bought for daughter in australia. for gym there. Prompt delivery and product in stock.
An excellent bra with superb support. I am a 32FF - this bra is really comfortable and gives me great support even during high impact exercise and jumping around. Also good for running. Highly recommended. And Less Bounce kept me informed at each stage of my order and it arrived quickly with no hassles.
This bra is extremely comfortable and supportive for long distance running. I wore it for the Long Distance Walkers 100 event Jubilee weekend, with all that rain without any chafing. There is a good choice of colours. Have you thought about a special Gamesmaker edition in Purple and Poppy?
It may well be a good support bra but I'm afraid I found it impossible to do up. The one time I tried to wear it I got my husband to fasten it for me and then decided it was too uncomfortable to run in - and found I couldn't get OUT of it myself either so had to have help! A friend tried one on in her local sports shop and had the same experience so it isn't just me.
I totally wasted my money on this bra - still have it as I always wash my sports bras before wearing so had removed the labels and tags and couldn't return it!
Maybe I got the wrong size, (32 D, for my usual 32DD bra size), but this bra gives me shoulder and neck ache. First time using was the worst but have adjusted the straps a little and it's better. It could be the racerback style, which apparently is a tricky style for people with larger chests. I do have a little cleavage in these, so it might be a size too small, but I also tried one cup size up and it was a little too loose. The bra holds boobs in for most of my circuit training exercises, but during jumping exercises like burpees, jumping jacks, high knees, there's far too much bounce. Have ordered Enell and Panache and hoping for better results!
i bought one of these bras some time ago & at the time wasn't sure it was any better than others on the market, UNTIL i had to wear one of the others on one occasion & the difference was remarkable. so.. this time i hav bought two, so that i always have one ready to be worn.
the support is great, although one has to be flexible to fasten it at the back., there's no putting it on back to front then swinging it round, however, the support would not be so good were it not for the design & it doesn't take long to work out the best way to deal with the back fastening.
I wouldn't buy any other sort of bra now for sport.
Very comfortable and supportive bra, i love the colour purple/turquoise. I am 32F, it is little tight around the chest, next time i will try 34F.
Already have a Max Support bra, however having lost enough weight (and centimetre's!) remeasured myself when I went to order another, so as I needed a smaller size tried a differet style.Provides good support, 36F, there is some movement, but minimal. I prefer the style of this to max support, don't look as flat. My main concern is doing up the top catch, I have had a shoulder injury in the past and find it difficult to do up, usually have to ask for help.My interest is horseriding and find both of these bras great.
This is the 2nd time I have bought this product - I have 2 already and have now got a couple more as I run up to 6 times a week. They are absolutely brilliant - I am a 38E and my boobs don't move at all in these, no matter how far I run!
This is simply the best bra ever.. I'm a 38E..
Its comfy, holds me very firmly, but at the same time does not flatten or give a 'mono boob' and is a great colour.
I'm able to go jogging again - something I've not done in a long time and circuit training and zumba at the gym is now very comfortable. My boobs now feel part of me, rather than with a mind of their own during exercise..
If you are considering it - You must try it.. its worth every penny - I can't recommend highly enough..
I found this bra tight around my chest despite sizing up to my running size. Shame I really liked this and it has good support, I'm a 32G.
Selaine suggests: it may be worth trying the 34F, the band is not quite as stretchy on the RUN as the other Shock Absorbers
Very comfortable, love the turquoise/purple colour, great to run in. Only downside is it's a bit fiddly doing up the extra fastening at the back, not as hard to get in and out of as my other Shock Absorber bra though.
The best sports bra I've ever had! This was my second purchase of the exact same bra and really hope they won't discontinue it.
What I noticed with all sports bras is that I needed to get one size smaller. I should be 34D, but all my sports bras are 34C as this way they hold better.
Never had a problem with unclipping and for those who experience too much up-and-down movement they might need to tighten the straps a bit more or get a smaller size. Might feel a bit too tight at first but after a few minutes all slides into place.
Nice bra to look at and wear and I haven't had the problem with the straps unclipping while I'm running but there is too much bounce for me. I can see what they mean by reducing the figure of eight movement but the up and down is still there! Back to my Enell, even though it looks a bit scary.
Have so far only used it for running, and it's really comfortable, keeps it all in place and I think looks quite nice too (as sports bras in my size go, at least). I was a little worried about the reports of straps becoming unfastened, but have not had this happened to me on my regular 10km runs. The top fastening has not proved a problem either, although it took a couple of tries to get it right the first time. I found the sizing on the tighter side, I am sometimes a 30 but wear my 32 on the outermost hooks.
This is my favourite bra for running! Comfy straps, gives nice shape and great support. I prefer it over the other high impact (run) shock absorber bra as its also easy to close on your own!
Great bra, I have tried a few and this is the best to date. Minimised movement, good fit, really comfy. Worth it! I would get another.
I bought this bra in a 36F in the blue colour for riding, to try to keep everything where it should be. I saw a recent pic of myself riding in one of my other sports bras and was horrified to see I had Madonna-esque pointy boobs. Eeeeek. My other sports bras give a mono-boob effect, so I was determined to find something that had great support, looks great, and also keeps the assets in a natural shape. This bra did it! It provides really firm support, there is no movement at all. It fits well and is true to size. The straps are padded and comfy, and do not leave marks on my shoulders. Also, you don't need to be a contortionist to fasten it up yourself - you can leave the top clip fastened - and wriggle into it - then reach behind to fasten the lower strap. The bra stays in place, the material doesn't hold moisture, so you always feel cool and dry - no matter how hot it is. Best of all, I can actually wear this bra for hours, not just for riding, it is that comfy. Highly recommended for anyone doing sport involving a lot of movement. Especially recommended for horse riders.
I have ordered 32F as it is my size in Shock Absorber B4490 but to my surprise it was too big: too wide in front (restricts movement of arms). But it has all I expected: gel pad under hooks, comfi leyer inside. A bit difficult to fasten the upper back hook.
Love it. I had the black one already and it was nice to be able to get a fun color like purple. The shipping time was very acceptable. Will order again!
This is the BEST! I run 5k and was suffering friction burns on my shoulders due to flapping of 34F spaniels ears in other sports bras.. This bra stops all these issues and more besides feels snug and no movement breathing can be an issue
Fantastic bra. I find it much easier to do up the top fastening than on the max support. I would definitely recommend.
This bra is great. It is really comfortable and amazingly supportive when I run. I've tried quite a few running bras over the years and this one definitely stops all unwanted movement and yets feels natural rather than rigid or tight.
Fab bra, excellent for running. Really supportive, my second one of this range!
Really good fit and absolutely no bounce when running. Highly recommended.
a really great sports bra!
The best bra for running: best support and very comfortable too. Easy to put on and take off, even when you're sticky with sweat.
I'm really pleased that I bought this bra and am even now going to get another one in a different colour. I had read positive reviews about it and they have been proven true. I experienced a bit of fuss setting up the straps and initially putting it on, but once that was complete the bra was extremely supportive when out running.
A very comfortable bra for running. The high fastening at the back really reduces bounce in high impact activities. I'd recommend even to those like me who usually go for under wiring.
This is a great sports bra! Just back into exercise after having a baby & even though I'm breast feeding it's so comfortable and does exactly what you need it too!
Brilliant, everything stayed in place.
I've recently had breast reconstruction and surgery to my natural breast, and my consultant insisted I got a really good sports bra before I started running. This is it.
It is good in that it limits bounce but it is after a few uses it tends to loose its tightness, and even by tightening the back/shoulder straps it doesn't really help as much as it could. The band around the bottom of it could be more comfortable too, perhaps a bit more padding to stop it cutting.
This bra pretty much does what it says it will! Absorbs "shock" and minimises bounce while running! Its very comfortable with nice soft, wide straps. My only complaint is that the straps on one of mine kept coming unhooked but I just closed the gap on the hook with a pair of pliers!!
I am a 38D and this keeps my boobs in place when doing body attack - excellent
I bought two and they are great. Yes they take a bit of getting used to, but they can be done by you alone if you do the top clip up first and pull it over your head. Easier with help! Word of warning - they are a tight fit, I'm a 32 and the 34 is very snug.
Worn this for two trail running sessions and no problems, plus very comfy with a heart rate monitor. It does take a while to get used to the upper clip, which takes good flexibility to fasten, but you can get round it by fastening it first then slipping it on.
Excellent and comfortable bra. I still slightly prefer my Nike molded compression bra which ensures nothing moves when I'm running. I still get a bit of bounce with this bra, even though I'm only a 36B, but much less than most bras I've tried.
Very good support. I found that the the fit is quite tight according to the sizing. I am a 32.. normally i fasten the bras on the tightest setting, whereas this one is very snug on the widest.. Bit tricky getting in and out of but excellent to run in.. Best feature, no seam marks when it comes off
this bra is great, and it doesnt seem to stretch like the regular bras do. will be ordering more as the price reflects the quality
I was impressed with previous reviews so bought 2 on the offer. The bra itself is very comfortable, no rubbing or movement, it does exactly what I wanted it to. The only downside is the fastening clasp has already bent out of shape so its now difficult to put on & the material has started to fray
I run marathons, am 34DD and wear an Enell bra which does the job - but I am on a quest for something more wicking and less hideous. Had high hopes of the B5044 but breasts bounced when running, also very aware of breast weight in neck/shoulder due to top fastener. Can't get straps to feel right.
Does have superb support (I'm a 32E runner) but on longer runs I found it pulled hard on one shoulder. Straps need to be fitted well, as they cut in on top of shoulder rather than sitting wide so can create pressure. Enell still the best support in my opinion but totally agree with red mark point!
Reduces most bounce, but could do with something stronger across the top of the bust to eliminate that 'lift & drop' feeling. Comfortable, soft. Draws away sweat but then stays soaking wet right through the run.Expensive, doesn't look very durable. Plastic clip a gimmick serves no purpose whatsoever
Good fit (I am 36B), looks good and feels great!Slightly tricky to do up I find.
I have tried many different brands, but Shock Absorber is THE best. This bra is an excellent running bra, brilliant support and very comfortable.(36B) The only bad thing is getting it on, I found it very difficult to fasten. It is a bit more expensive than some of the others, but worth the money.
Every so often I try other bras to see if they match up to Enell for support. Support was OK but felt more secure in shock absorber N901 and Enell (bought both). It's a great looking bra (not many of these at 32E) but so hard to put on I ultimately sent it back.
This bra provides incredible support while also being really comfortable. There is no harsh under-wire that digs into you while you run. This bra holds up for 20-mile runs, no problem! This bra and the Shock Absorber B4490 are the two best Sports bras for busty women!
I was very excited to get this bra and it does provide unparralled support. That said, it also rubs my shoulder blades and is really quite cumbersome. I tend not to wear it that often as a result.
I unfortunatly found that to have this bra tight enough on the shoulders that it ended up cutting into my armpit area. I think this may be due to the size. I should imagine if I had a smaller bust this would not be the case.
It's a pretty good bra for short training sessions, but the adjustable hooks on the straps have an annoying habit of loosening themselves and pinging open during longer sessions. Not ideal 10 miles into a half marathon! Probably better for low impact workouts.
Agree with others that straps have the habit of detaching themselves! this has happened twice in Boxercise class and during kettlebell training - so relegated to back of draw. I wear 32E
Please note: this bra is designed for running, not boxercise or kettlebell training, and moving the arms sideways will cause the straps to unfasten - sorry, Selaine
Not the easiest bra to get on firstly but the thing that drives me MAD is that the straps keep pinging undone, what is the point of having a metal clip, that clips into something but easily slides out again on a running bra. You just can't rely on it staying fixed!!
This bra is great. I use for running. very comfortable. good support and nice fabric. You don't even know you are wearing it
a brilliant bra, very comfortable. Just a pig to do up so I leave the top open til i get to the gym and get someone to do it up, where there will be others who are also looking for a hand. A good buy, worth the money. Like the wide straps
Once you can get this bra on, great, but it is impossible without two people and sometimes the straps ping off. Not great for any sport if you can't rely on it staying in place and I am only a 34 C.
Please note this bra is designed specifically for running, and any sport with lateral arm movements may result in the straps undoing. Selaine
At first i loved this bra as there was little or no bounce. However during one of my bootcamp classes the stap came un done. I have no confidence in wearing this bra for a 10 mile race i have coming up in fear the same will happen again. Very disappointed
Selaine's comments: the Run bra is designed specifically for running and is not ideal for other types of activity
I loved this bra the first time I wore it for a run but the second time-during a pilates class luckily-one of the straps came undone. I am now afraid to use it while running or in the gym. It is very comfortable however so I just wear it for the non active side of my life.
Selaine says: this bra is designed for running and not for other fitness activities
I am a regular runner and compete in other high impact sports, although it was comfortable it did not prevent my 34E bust from bouncing and I did not feel supported. I therefore returned the bra.
Probably one of the best ever running bras I've worn. Very comfortable and supportive - very little movement. Only slight criticism is that the top clasp takes a bit of getting used to
I have found this bra excellent for running and also aerobics. Very comfortable and 'does what it says on the tin'!
I bought this bra because I needed something supportive so I could run after giving birth and while still breastfeeding. I am full figured anyway and always struggle to find good sports bras. This is hands down the best running sports bra I have ever owned in terms of comfort, shaping and support!
this is such a good running bra, it's really comfortable, easy to put on and the top strap across the shoulder blades keeps straps in place perfectly. I have now bought another one!
This bra is really great! It fits me very well and keeps my breats where they should be, even with high impact movement. The tissue is very comfortable and smooth. All in all, an excellent sports bra!
I am very happy with this sports bra. It is very comfortable although takes a bit of getting used to putting on. I have worn it for Zumba and will be weraing it for jogging and am confident of the support. Would reccommend this even though a bit pricey.
I bought 2 but will be back for more. It is great for jogging and cycling and even under normal clothing at work without the top clip done up. To make it perfect, it would be able to be worn as an outer garment.
This is my favourite sports bra for running. Excellent fit and comfort.
It's absolutely great - I already had it in coral!
Great for running, walking and zumba! Really supportive even for bigger boobs. I've started to wear mine the whole time because it's so comfortable! I'm getting more in other colours!
Brilliant bra - you don't know that you are wearing it, it doesn't rub and gives you excellent support.
The support is perfect. It's a very good product and comfortable. I use it for running.
I love this bra. I have four of them one and they are fantastically comfortable and so little bounce. Fully adjustable straps are great for shorties like me.
I also have the Shock Absorber B4490 for running but I find this one much, much better. It was definitely made for running in!
Riding dressage on a bouncy warmblood requires a special bra - this one is it - the only one that works - have just bought a red one and will just wear it and my jods when the weather gets hot - just perfect for the more mature woman!
AFTER TRYING A SO CALLED BEST SELLER, WHICH WAS NOT MAN ENOUGH FOR THE JOB, I BOUGHT YET ANOTHER SHOCK ABSORBER, WHICH WAS BRILLIANT! DON'T THINK I'LL BOTHER TRYING ANY OTHER BRANDS AGAIN, JUST WASTING TIME AND MONEY!
Very comfortable with good support. My bra size is 34FF but I went up to a 36FF as the 34 was too tight. Still finding the top clip a bit difficult at times but will try doing it up first as suggested.
I am a 38D and this is my second shock absorber bra. They are very comfortable to wear with the soft straps on the shoulder and the extra strap at the back guarantees that nothing moves. I use it mainly for running. Keep up the good work.
This bra is abosolutly fantastic. No bounce and feel totally secure. Highly recommend. Is the best i have found following bust surgery for exercise and now only wear this one for all sports. Have recommended to all my running buddies.
Being a regular gym goes and runner, I have always found problems getting sports bras that offer enough support whilst still allowing me to breathe. Good enough support for running, whilst comfortable and (relative to other bras) flattering. Well done Shock Absorber!
Superbly comfortable. Keeps everything in place, cool and dry. No rubbing or chafing. Very easy to put on. Great shape. I've been wearing Nike until now and this beats it hands down.
Really comfy and secure - just what you need to ensure you can focus on just running!
I am a 34F and put this bra to the test with a Crossfit workout that included and running and jump roping. I barely moved. They stayed in place I was floored!!! This bra held me in place better than the lever4. Don't let the level 3 description scare you, they don't move!!! I promise.
I love this bra so much I bought it in both white and black. it does the job and gives you a lively shape. Only comment...don't get cold...everyone will notice...I am a triathlete and it works well on the bike too!
From Lessbounce I got two bras at the same price than here in Finland I would have got only one!! I will certainly order all my sport bras from Lessbounce in the future.
Just getting back into exercise post having a baby. B5044 provides comfort and support for breastfeeding mums. Well worth it!!
Soft straps, comfortable, great fit NO bounce or movement (34C. The only bra for long distances. Some say its too expensive but its worth it and so too are you! Go on treat yourself...
This is the best running bra ever. Nothing moves!
I bought two of these in the offer - I find that they are extremely comfortable to run in - no bounce and no rubbing. A bit difficult to put on (if you live alone!) with two fastenings, but once one very secure. The big test will be the LDWA 100 mile event
The 34D feels very tight but is the best support I've ever had for running. Nothing moves and because of that there is no chafing even after 10 miles without Bodyglide. The high strap across the shoulders does take a bit of getting used to and anyone with tight shoulders may need some help with the upper fastening.
I LOVE this bra!! I've always used the B4490 but am now a dedicated convert to this run bra. It's easy to put on, comfortable, definitely stops bounce and can be perfectly adjusted to size - the first sports bra where I haven't had to cut and shorten the straps. Perfect! I'm a 30C (sometimes D) :)
I've had many fab sports bras from Shock absorber and this is no different. Agree with other reviews that it takes practise to get on but with no rubbing and no bounce its worth the effort. Only thing I would say is its pricey,if that's an issue there are other cheaper shock absorbers almost as good
I can't get over how good this bra is. I'm a 32F and nothing holds me in place like this one. I love it! Putting it on takes a little bit of practice, and it's not cheap, but it's worth it all. It's sturdy, comfortable and looks great as a top, too. The best bra for running by a long margin.
A really supportive bra which does not rub, is very comfortable and allows very little movement. It is a bit bit hard to do up, but once you are used to it it is no trouble. Straps easy to adjust. I would highly recommend and immediately bought a second one.
This is a great bra once you have worked out how to do it up!! The best thing to do is to leave it done up and just pop it on like a crop top - definitely worth it and the price!
I do a lot of high impact sports (running, aerobics, etc). I have worn many high impact bras but this is also the BEST (BEST!!!) bra i have ever worn! So little movement. SO comfortable! and it even looks good on and under clothing (despite the picture). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Tip: do up the top clip before the lower band - much easier..! A comfy bra with nice racer-back design but I still find wearing two B109s, or a level 3 over a B109 gives more support than the Run bra. B109 also gives a perkier profile; the Run bra a more compressed effect. I'm a 30D in both.
.Does the job!...Best Sports Bra for running ive had
This design holds my 36E boobs firm and gives a secure feeling. It is simply the best sports bra I have ever bought. If you run try it, you'll love it I'm sure.
Had a chance to use a few times and I must say it is the best sport bra so far. I highly recommend it. I ordered size 32F and it fits perfectly.
This bra is excellent for running, especially for longer distances. It is very similar to the shock absorber B4490 and I can highly recommend it.
Despite looking a bit scary it's really comfortable, doesn't rub or chafe anywhere and I won't run in any other sports bra now. You need to be a bit of a contortionist to fasten the top clip but it's worth the effort.
(38D).Used this bra training for and during the 2010 London Marathon. Of 3 other bras I've used in the past this is def the best. Extreemly secure yet surprisingly comfortable, great ventilation, quality material has lasted despite multiple washes. You get what you pay for. So good,I bought a second
I am a size 36E and need something with great support for running. I have tried many different styles & brands over the years and this bra gives fantastic support without being too bulky or restrictive. Nor does it make my boobs a funny shape!!
Most comfortable running bra i've got. no bounce even at 36 E. Did have a hissy fit trying to put it on the first time but once over that its the best one i've got.
If you are clocking up the miles than this is the best sports bra I have ever had and I have tried so many. It's so soft, supportive, no bounce, comfortable, size 34FF draws away sweat and no red marks. (sorry Enell I still have the scars). Great adjustable straps WOW
A great bra with a comfortable fit and no bounce. Ran London marathon with this and no chafing at all! I struggle to clip up bras behind my back, so actually find the two clip system on this really helpful.
It may be a pit pricey but it is totally worth it. Once you're properly adjusted there is virtually no movement. I'm training for a marathon and would not run in anything else now. Have always worn shock absorber bras but this is by far the best. Am only a 34B but we all need great support!
This bra is even better than the B109, which I've used when running for many years. Great smooth fit, wide comfy straps, no bounce, extremely comfortable, I just want to put it on! It is a little tricky to fasten the top clip, but this is getting easier with practise.
Good fit, does the job really well, very comfortable for running and any high impact sport
Fantastic support for a large chested woman. Thought I would have trouble finding one to give me enough support for running but it is perfect!!! Worth every penny.
I have worn many different brands of high impact sports bras for running and this is by far the best sports bra I have ever had. It is worth the price and I would highly recommend it. My bra size is 34E and the bra is a comfortable fit with no bounce.
Wore it straight from packet did 7 miles in it and can say that this is the best bra by far for running - perfect fit, comfortable, no bounce, no red marks at all. The only negative is the hefty price but worth it in the long run! size 34c
Many thanks for great service as always
As a Shock Absorber fan I really like this bra. It's high enough at the front to hold you in and has been great for running. I like the strap length fittings as they hold secure throughout a run. I can't say that its a great deal different to the B4490 but I'd still recommend it.
