Used to fit

This is my second Ultimate Run bra from Shock Absorber, because it's my favourite running bra! I bought this from Lingerie Outlet Store, and not only was this bra on sale for really cheap, but the shipping was also cheap and extremely quick to Canada (they shipped it on March 6th, and I received it on March 13th; one week later)! I'm highly impressed.

I've had the chance to wear it a couple times now, and there is no discernible difference between this colourway and the black colourway in terms of how it fits and feels when I'm running (except being able to wear it on the loosest hook, whereas I have to wear my black bra on the second hooks now that it has stretched a bit). There are only two differences in terms of construction that I can see, and that is 1. they've used a wider, padded eye tape on this one, and 2. there seems to be some thin padding in the top of the straps. The only negatives are 1. it smelled strongly of chemicals right out of the package, but that dissipated quickly; and 2. there are a handful of thread and fabric ends poking out, but I really had to search to notice them, and nothing seems to be unravelling, so I consider this just cosmetic; and 3. I have to wear the shoulder straps on the tightest setting right out of the package, but as far as I can tell, the straps haven't stretched at all on my black bra, so this should be fine for the foreseeable future.

Overall, I'm super happy with this purchase! Just for a quick recap on the fit of this bra, it does run about two band sizes tight (this is a "30" band that fits quite snug on my 25.5" ribcage). I prefer this bra over my Panache Sport for running, as I like the mild compression, it doesn't feel nearly as bulky, and I feel more secure and "locked in".

    Looks comfy!

    MamaPagan It is surprisingly comfy! It feels really lightweight on, and I barely notice it (if at all) when I'm running.

    Definitely good qualities to have in a sports bra. I am glad it works so well for you.

    Looks like it scoops well right and firm at the lower breast portion without a gap. Essential as comressive support bras could sit lower and contribute to a downwards bend right where vibrations tend to delaminate the skin from the chest.

  • femineaaeterna I hadn't even thought about that, but you're absolutely right!

    Congratulations! What a great deal! The colours are great on this too!
