    34F

    Didn't fit

    Very short-waisted, center full, close set, immediately projected, omega shape, slightly narrow breasts....

    This Shock Absorber model is well-suited for shorter roots and short-waisted physiques. However, its size range is more limited than other models which poses a problem for me.

    Because it is so lightweight and simultaneously supportive, I long for this bra to fit. Additionally, this model is a good choice for those who dislike j-hooks and pull-over sports bras. It allows for center projection and separates a bit. Airflow is important in high temperatures :-)

    Although it creates the "upside down seven" shape, it feels comfortable everywhere except under my arm at the top edge of the cup. I need a millimeter or so more space than the bra allows. Because it is not made in a 34FF, I may purchase a 36F and hope the scaling doesn't dwarf my short-waisted, petite stature. We'll see...

    Tall and/or low-set users, look for another option. Shorties, rejoice! This may fit.

    • I've tried this when I was a bit thinner (in a 28H I think, or 30H) and I didn't like the support. No underwire? Somehow did not work for me even though I am very short and petite too :( The only 2 sports bras that seem to work for me are the Freya active underwired (this is very trusty) and the panache sports bra. The former didn't stock 28H (I think now they do??), leading me to panic when I was in my country (Asia not known for busty women), and led to a torn ligament, which has resulted in my getting plump from lack of exercise, and right now trying to lose it....

    • Ouch! A torn ligament sounds painful! I so hope this injury heals quickly for you, lorraineyang101

    • Just curious have you tried one cup size down? I think the unused height here suggests you might. Since there are no wires, it won't cause pinching, and it could help with the underarm issue

    • wendybien Yes, when my breasts were smaller I tried the 32F.

    It is my go-to bra for sport. I have two bras in this size and the band has streched a lot. I think it will not be supportive enough for larger breasts than mine but for me it is better than wearing a regular bra. It gives me a natural shape and not an uni-boob shape like other sport bra do.

    32F

    Didn't fit

    Panache Sport Non-wired bra is my first choice for winter. However, just thinking about wearing Panache Sport when temperatures are above 80 degrees F makes me nauseous. And, I've learned the racerback fastener pulls the top of the cups into a tendon. Sizing down reduces the tendon bite, but reduces the amount of time I can comfortably wear the bra. Now, I'm experiencing more comfort in non-racerback sports bras. N102 is not a racerback and provides an incredible amount of holding power with a few pieces of fabric. N109 is fuller coverage and a better selection for taller roots than N 102.

    Lightweight, power lifter this Shock Absorber is. ... Wow! This 32F pulls to one side, because I need a bit more projection. And, quadding shows in both cups. If available one size larger (32G UK), I would have a very comfortable, supportive, summer exercise bra.

    The band is delightfully supportive, the straps well-padded, and the fastener protection pad/gel excellent. Note: straps are perfect for petite and or high-set users. However, taller users will be terribly disappointed. Also, the apex is located lower in the cup than N109; making this a good option for short roots. NOTE: N102 runs one size smaller than N109.

    Like several other Shock Absorber models, the seams are thoughtfully positioned and the fabric does not chafe.

    These are excellent sports bras for hot, humid climates. And, the support is better than Panache Sport Non-wire.

    It's a good sports bra for wide root shallow breasts, and - unlike compression type sports bras - it's not flattening. It does create a very pointy "rocket breast" shape, though. However, if you wear it under a tighter top, the shape looks roundish and okay again.
    I don't think it gives as much support as other Shock Absorbers, although it's supposed to be a level 3.
    This bra does not quite fit me anymore - it fit perfectly when I was still a 30C in other bras - and I measured the bust perimeter with major quadboob going on.

  6. This is the first sports bra I've ever had in the right size so it's hard to rate it against other sports bras, but it feels very firm and supportive, and my breasts barely move at all when I jump up and down. The band is a lot tighter than I'm used to, but there are no underwires to press against my ribs and the band elastic is wide and quite soft. The padded straps are really comfortable, although there's not much room for adjustment - they are 25cm fully tightened and 30.5cm at full length. I didn't find the length a problem but it might be awkward ... if you need particularly long or short straps.

    Sizing: my ribcage is 65cm/26" measured normally or 60cm/24" measured very tightly, and the 28 band is a very snug fit. The cups seem to run slightly large, and I'm happy with the D cup although I usually tend towards 28DD (FWIW, I'm not very full on top and often find full-cups a bit roomy). I feel like the cup placement might be better suited to closely-spaced breasts, but it's not a major problem.
