Shock Absorber Classic Sports Bra 4.6 5 19 19
A Good Fit Purchased this bra in white and although I usually buy a size 32E I opted for 34E as advised by the fitter. It's a good fit and very comfortable, and much better than wearing a non sports bra for the gym. 11 March 2014
Very good product Sports bras can be a bit of a gamble: by the time you've realised it's not as you hoped it's probably too late to return. However, this is a reassuringly snug fit, supportive and does exactly what it needs to do. I felt completely confident when wearing it at the gym and comfortable when running. I bought my normal bra size and it was fine. Would certainly recommend. 25 February 2014
Very tight but it does the job I brought a 32E which is my normal bra size. It's extremely tight, but very supportive. I can run freely without having to hold my chest. Great buy overall. 05 February 2014
Very tight but clearly does the job! I bought this in my bra size 28E, and one thing I did think was perhaps the fit wasn't perfect because my breasts do spill out a tiny bit at the top, therefore giving me the four-boob effect. However, I work out 5 times a week doing activities ranging from Zumba, Pilates and Boot Camp and even though I havent got massive breasts per se, they are quite large on my petite frame so I do need a really strong bra to keep things in place and this definitely does the job. No jiggle at all but like i said it is very tight and leaves marks, so maybe I would get a 30D/30DD next time. However I am just grateful I can move around as much as I want and not have to clasp my breasts every time I jump like I have had to with other brands! 28 December 2012
Ideal sports bra Very comfortable bra. I like the fact that you can alter the straps and adjust the back fastening. I will be buying another very soon 06 December 2012
£100 Winning Review This was a purchase for my wife using my credit card. So, the review question has been sent to me. She loves the product. And I love her. 22 November 2012
Much improved fit I always buy this bra for running and it now seems to fit even better and be even more comfortable than previously. 08 November 2012
No bounce bra Best bra I have ever had, perfect fit, control and no bounce, what more can a girl wish for. tried so many others but this is the only one for me! 04 October 2012
