Comfortable, good support. Submitted from TheUndies.com

In order for this bra to be supportive without wires, the fabric in the cups doesn't stretch. Because of this, the fit really needs to be perfect for the bra to work. The fit is pretty true to size. I ended up returning the bra as I don't think it offered enough support for my 30F size, but I could see how it would work well for smaller breasts and/or for low impact activities. Meredith from USA

The Shock Absorber classic sports bra is extremely comfortable because it has no underwire and it fits perfectly. It offers about 3 1/2 high impact support. I wear them mountain bike riding, working out on weights, doing cross fit and hiking and they hold up really well (years) . I have not been paid for this review! Missmarnly from Arizona

The 38D fit more lik a 34 B.

HerRoom Response:While Sports Bras do tend to run snug to give you the compression you need while exercising, It sounds like it may be time to be re-fitted. Please check out our Bra Fitting page to help you find a size that fits properly. Shel

This is a great bra. It has the support and fit of seamed cups, easy on/off for a sports bra, and doesn't come up too high in front. The band is very snug, but I like this as it feels supportive. It's lightweight, and I appreciate the lack of underwire for comfort. Fern from MN

Shock Absorber Classic Sports Bras are perfect, I don't know how I'd live without them--I can teach dance classes, lecture classes, work all day etc and run/pop out to the gym when there's time, all in the same bra that also looks great under suits for conferences, etc. Brilliant!

I gave it three stars because although it wasn't for me it might be OK for someone else. This was the first bra I tried without an underwire and I didn't like it. I just didn't feel supported enough. Also, the fabric on the cups didn't really stretch to my shape so it felt too loose at the top. It almost bagged at bit. I couldn't adjust it enough to eliminate this. The bra fit everywhere you take a measurement from so I didn't think a different size would have mattered. Going back to wired bras.

Shock Absorber Response: This style is made of woven non-stretchy fabric so the cup needs to fit snug and smoothly to the breast to give support. Suggest trying a style with stretchy fabric to give compression as well as support. Perhaps try style B4490, which offers both encapsulation and compression. Lara from Barrington, IL

Everything stays put and doesn't move. Straps stay up during activity. Hasn't stretched out with regular use. Submitted from TheUndies.com

An excellent all-round bra. It was even better before it was "updated," but is still the best available. Elizabeth from Honolulu Hawaii

Nicely made and gave good support, but uncomfortably smashed my bustline. I tried one cup larger, but that did not work. A little less compression and I would have kept this one. Sherrie from Diamond Bar

Perfect fit, well made, lifts properly (yes, A cups require lift, as well) which causes a more youthful appearance...I might just wear this occasionally as an everyday bra. Comfort, comfort, comfort AND clothed looks fabulous! Barbara from NJ

Love the fit, except too tight over the shoulders and puts too much pressure on them. Lori from Mesa, Az

Not as supportive as the Infinity, but still a great bra for my horseback riding. Like it a lot. Marie-Laure from Browns Valley, CA, USA

fits great and feels comfortable--I had been wearing the wrong size (34DD), but now that I'm in the right size, I'm happy with it and plan to order another one Laura

It states on the website that the bra runs small and you should order a size larger. However, it doesn't state what part of the bra runs small (i.e. the cup size or the bra itself) and when I got it, the straps were so short that I would have needed probably 2-3 sizes larger.

I love this sports bra. However, I rated it a 2 because the band is over 2" shorter than other Shock Absorber bras that I have in 30 DD. I have to wear an extender with it to get it to fit. Kathi from Lakewood, Co

The back band fabric was too rough so I sent it back. I can't imagine wearing something that scratchy all day. DMK from USA

Perfect for the mature woman who likes the padded straps, but no underwire or padded cups. It was a gift and she wants 2 more!! Very pleased with the quality. Leone from Berlin

This is a fine bra - just not a lot of support to me. It would work well for any low-impact sport. Fits true to size. Boxing Squirrel from Fairfax VA US
