This is Shock Absorber's newest bra model which is a high impact bra designed for all activities as opposed to a single activity, like the run bra. I think the red piping on the black bra looks very nice, and the interior of the bra feels nice to the skin as it's completely seamless. The headphone wire clip is a nice feature if you enjoy listening to music when you work out.
The reason I wanted to try this bra was because I was looking for a racer back bra. I think having the upper clip is a good idea so that you can more easily ...put on a bra without pulling it over your head. The reality is, it just doesn't work, at least not for me. My arms or not long enough to grasp the upper clips, and they're not strong enough in that contorted position to fasten them. The only way I was able to put on the bra was to close the upper clasp before putting it on, which kind of defeats the point of having upper clasp in the first place. I thought it would be possible to undo one or both the the hooks on the straps first, but they don't come out so easily.
Overall, I don't recommend this bra just because it's too difficult to put on. Read more 122 more words
It should be noted that my measurements for this bra were after I'd already been wearing it for almost 2 years! But it was great when it was still snug, it has sstretched out quite a bit now and definitely have always gotten some quad boob, but not terribly.
It was very secure and snug when I got it, but even then the straps cut into my shoulders quite a bit and I can't wear it for more than a few hours. This is fine for working out anyway and much better than the stretchy sports bras I used until I got this one! These days I'd probably order a 30FF if I were to buy this bra again, though I think I'd go for something more supportive.
I used it for my today's workout. For the warm-up - the craziest moves my fantasy gave me for about 15 min. Then some Calisthenics exercises like push-ups with legs higher than arms, squats, crunches and many more. After that - a gentle yoga session (mainly slopes and twists).
What I can say... It is not bad. I had to jump really madly to feel my boobs move. When I was beginning, part of my boobs placed themselves between the decolletage and my neck as two, rather flat rolls. During the workout, some tissue moved under my armpits. I can comfortably do exercises in this bra, but I would afraid to do this too often.
This is a cute sports bra that generally fits well! I still wear a balconette underneath it to reduce bounce. I notice now that my boobs are a bit bigger (especially when I am on my period) I get a bit of quadding where the top criss-crossed layer digs into my tissue just a tiny bit, which is noticeable if I am wearing a clingy tee shirt. This band runs really tight, though, so fits more like a 32. If I were to change the size I'd keep the same band size and go up in the cup if possible.
This seems like a good quality bra but ordered the wrong size so it does not fit me. It is brand new with tag still attached. It is wire free with a racer back and has a headphone wire holder attachment.
