Normally a 34D, with narrow shoulders and one that rolls forward, I have a hard time finding a bra that is supportive and stays on my shoulders. Other bras that are racer-back type can stay on, but aren't comfortable, or put too much pressure on my neck. Bras that are supportive enough usually feel like an encasement. This one is extremely soft, no-seam interior, holds in the girls for extra support, and the back claps in two locations keep shoulder straps on. Some clasps irritate my back and chafe, but this bra does not. Will be buying more.

Still more bounce than I expected from something named shock absorber. It felt very secure and everywhere except in the bra cups. I liked that it was very thin and breathable material.

Best sports bra ever! I've owned this particular one for 2 years. Having a large bust I've never had a supportive sport bra. I've had to double up on bras or just make due with uncomfortable, unsupportive bras. This bra holds you in place for running, jumping, or any excercise. It's super supportive and comfortable. I highly recommend it, especially for anyone with large ladies.

I wear a 34K US, so I ordered this in a couple of sizes and ended up keeping the 34H since its UK sized and sending the others back. As others have mentioned, it can be a little tricky to get on the first time but once you figure it out its great. I have plenty of support for Jazzercise, kickboxing and running. Love this and immediately bought a couple more.

Well made but not supportive enough for G-cup. Still a lot of bounce if running or doing high impact workout. Returning.

I had high hopes for this bra because I would love a racer back. I'm a 34H in US sizes (so 34GG in Shock Absorber) and love the Shock Absorber DD+ max bra. But this just did not work for me. I wish the chest band were thicker, and I think because there is stretchy material near the back of the racer back, there is too much stretch and I bounced terribly in this, even adjusted as tightly as possible. Going back and bummed.

I ordered many styles looking for the best bra for me. This was my favorite by far. True to size and very supportive. Looks great too. It feels tight going on but once the girls are in place it is great. You have to get your straps adjusted before you put it on or you need a friend to help but once you do you are set. Get this one you won't regret it. By the way I am a 38 DD and 5'2".

This bra is cute and should hold your girls in place if you don't have huge boobs. I'm a 28GG and got the size 30G. It fits nicely, but there's a lot of bouncing - so I wouldn't use this for box jump or any other high intensity exercise. So, if your cup size and band size differ in more than about 5in, this bra probably is not for you.

I'm on my umpteenth version of this bra. I'm a 36E in this bra (a 36G in Wacoal). I've just run my 17th Half Marathon and would not have been able to do it without this bra. Thank goodness for Shock Absorber. Every now and then I toy with another brand or another size and I always come back to these. These are not the bras for wearing around the house: They are not comfortable except when exercising when they hold everything in place for as long as you need. The material is nice and washes well. These bras last a long time, especially if you wash in a lingerie bag.

This runs VERY small. I wish it had fit. Must return it. The hint about leaving the top clasp closed is the ONLY way to get this lovely bra on!

I have three of these sports bras. In my opinion, they offer the best level of support of any that I have ever had. The clips can be annoying sometimes but I am willing to live with that for the effectiveness. I wear a 34D and the fit is true to size.

Great support and fit. I am a 32 DD and thought that could have gone 34 as it seems it's a size smaller but the cup size is perfect. I love the design, material ( very light but strong) and look.

I ended up returning this. It's not terrible, but I have a cheap champion bra that supports almost as well. I was looking for something that felt significantly more secure, and this is not it. It's nicely made, but the support does not feel worth the price point. As others have said, you need to go up a size when ordering: I'm a band size 30 and it was inches from closing. The 32 fit well, but did not provide enough support.

A short followup. This bra wears exceptionally well. I've used it over and over again with no problems or wear. I highly recommend this bra. Fantastic support. I use it for running as well as weight/cardio workouts three or more times per week. Very good investment. Trick to the back hook system is to leave the top hooks connected then slip it over your head and you should find it pretty easy to connect the bottom. If you don't, you'll need some help. In my hunt for running/workout/horseback riding type bras, I tried at least 5 or 6 different brands -- this works best for me. Good luck hunting!

I tried this out, and it runs differently than my other regular and/or sports bras. My typical 34D was too small. I may retry with a larger band size. The closure on the straps looks very handy to keep the straps in place and to look good in sleeveless athletic wear. I found myself unable to hook it closed. Not sure if a better fit would help, or if it requires more flexibility than I possess!

Does not do very much shock absorbing. I bounce all over the place with this bra. Disappointing.

This was my third and final try for this bra. I started with my regular size, 34G, and within the same order got a 36FF as well just in case. I couldn't even clasp the 34, not even close. The 36 I had to clasp it around the front and then twist it back to the back like an 11 year old. Once I had it on correctly, the coverage was nuts. I felt like I was wearing a chest plate and I needed to joust with someone in one of those old school horsefight things. It was up too close to my armpits, higher than any tank or tee I would wear while working out, and the uni-boob was off the charts! Maybe if I was running a marathon this thing would be great, but for even rigorous gym workout and heavy cardio, I think it's just to much to deal with. I even ordered in a 38F and the band was still snug, and the coverage was the same. All 3, goodbye. May the search continue.

By far my favorite sports bra. I've recently resumed running and wanted to get a couple new sports bras. I'm a 38D in this one and most regular bras as well. I already had on of these that I really liked, but I decided to try several of the bras highly rated for D+ sizes. None of them worked as well for me as this one did - those went back and ordered another of these. I marked it down one star for comfort, but not sure that's completely fair because I've never found any sports bra that was something you'd want to wear for longer than necessary, though this one is pretty close.

I love that this bra has large cup options and can be worn with racerback tops. I hate that it only goes up to a 38. I need a 40.

This bra is true to size, fits extremely snug like it's supposed to. It keeps me in place. I'm a 36G and didn't realize there was a bra that could allow me to run and jump with being all over the place.

While I feel that this would be a very supportive bra, it's clearly not built for wide-shouldered women. I wear a 36DD and have pretty large shoulders, and the amount that the straps pulled and pinched my back and shoulders was extremely uncomfortable.
