Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant once you get one that fits .. a pint of milk is a pint of milk, but a 32B bra isn't always the same size. Out of 8 bras I tried (all labled 32B) only half of them fitted, the rest were too big in the top half of the cup. I contacted Shock Absorber about this and after 7 months I still haven't had a reply. So my best advise is to order quite a few, try them on in the shop and return those that don't fit. Once you get one that fits, they are brilliant. 11 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for ( not sporty ) older women, too A lovely medium support bra which is suitable for ladies who want a firm but not 'chunky' bra, as well as for sports players. A little expensive but worth it. 10 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by not supportive Happy that I'd found a non-threatening bra that looked half decent, off I went to the gym. Running on the spot in an E or F cup proved to be an up and down experience if you know what I mean. I already had a shock absorber which I thought was classic and just wanted a new one - this was a very disappointing replacement - where is the 'Classic' as I know it? 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A well priced product A super quality bra. Feels extremely comfortable and keeps support were it's needed. Have been buying this product well over 10 years, wouldn't wear anything else. 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I am very tiny but with big boobs, I always buy this bra as it comfortable and gives good support. 24 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent sports bra! A really excellent product. Extremely comfortable and supportive. I'm going to np buy a second one! 26 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good bra-shame it does not come in a smaller size I bought this bra in my usual size 34 B however the under bust band was a little tight and the cups a little loose. I would have liked to get it in a 36 A cup, but getting a bra in an A cup these days is nearly impossible and this bra is no exception, being only available in a B cup or larger. I used to wear this style a lot before I had my children and I wore it in a C cup. The style has not changed at all (which is great) and the support it provides is still as excellent as it always was, but since I am no longer filling out the cups, it does not give a very flattering silhouette. Given the above, I'm not sure about whether or not to send this back....I like the style of bra, it provides excellent support (even with 1 loose cup) but it looks embarrasing under my sports vest..... 04 April 2015
