Wearing a Shock Absorber sports bra during exercise reduces breast movement by up to 78% – delaying long term sagging. Shock Absorber sports bras not only focus on cup size but also back size and activity levels, ensuring a tailor-made fit.
Sizes 6-18 & D-HH Cup
Research: Shock Absorber are committed to continually improving and developing their product range with dedicated research programs, in partnership with world leading breast health and sports science experts. The study undertaken by Shock Absorber was more advanced than previous breast movement research, which only monitored smaller cup sizes, only looked at the effects of vertical breast movement, only analysed one stride during running, and then only up to 12k/h.
What the Shock Absorber breast movement study monitored:
Movement was tracked using four infra-red cameras. Recordings were then taken during three activities: static, jumping jacks and on a ramped treadmill. A comfort level was also obtained for each activity. The results showed that wearing a Shock Absorber sports bra could reduce bounce by up to 78%. This has proven to be as much as twice as effective at minimising breast movement as a 'normal' bra.
Activities: Shock Absorber's support level indicators will help you choose the right piece of sports kit for your needs. Shock Absorber sports bras offer maximum support for running and high exertion exercise, as well as support for all your lower impact activities such as yoga, walking and weight training. The levels range from 1 to 4, with 1 offering support for low impact activities and 4 offering support for all high and extreme impact activities.
Brava's Verdict: Often recommended in running magazines, we also find the range of Shock Absorber sports bras we have selected are excellent quality and there is a style to suit most body types and activities. The straps in a Shock Absorber sports bra are set closer together at the back so they won't slip off narrow shoulders. The Shock Absorber Active Multi Sports Bra (4490) is particularly popular for women with a small frame and the Active D+ Classic Support (N109) is great for fuller cups - up to H cup. If you are D cup or under we recommend the Shock Absorber Active Padded Sports Bra (N4246) and the Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra is exactly that, great for the runner. We love Shock Absorber sports bras not only for their great engineering but because they start at a size 6 back and offer to a HH cup. This brand is providing great sports equipment for the active woman.
