Shock Absorber Sports Bra Review

Back at the beginning of the year I contacted Shock Absorber about three ultimate run bras that I had that all seemed to have developed faults – stitching coming away, shrinking, hooks coming out – and they asked me to return them to have a look.

It has taken a little sorting out but Shock Absorber have replaced all three bras and have sent me a fourth as it has taken rather a while to sort out.  I was really getting desperate for new bras hence why I was quite excited to open the box that arrived last week!


Three of the bra’s are Ultimate Run Bras – the one that I know supports well.  The fourth is the Active bra – another high impact one, so I thought it would be good to take the opportunity to try it out.  So today I wore this one for the first time – it seemed comfortable and supportive, so definitely an option.  I did find the fasteners on this one more difficult than the Ultimate Run bra though – maybe just what I am used to.

I love the bright colours of the bras – particularly the purple Ultimate Run one.  I have tried other sports bras but keep coming back to these as the best ones.  Getting them on and off can be a challenge!  My trick is to do up the top fastener, then put the bra on over your head, finally do up the lower fastener……..   reverse the process to get it off !

So after having some of these bras that I have had to send back, will I buy them again in the future?  Yes I will.  I still think that they offer the best support that I have found.  I do wish that they were a bit cheaper though!  My advice would be to keep an eye on the sales and try to buy them then rather than paying full price.
