The construction and quality of this bra are great. The ease of getting it on is definitely lacking. It is hard to get into with the top clasp hooked, but even harder to try and hook the top clasp after you've done the main hook & eye closure at the back. I agree with the fitter's recommendation that the band runs tight. I am pretty consistently a 34 band in European brands, but sized up a band in the same universal cup size to accommodate. I still have a fair amount of bounce while wearing this bra, but it does greatly reduce the discomfort from the bounce I have when wearing less supportive sports bras. Shannon from Louisvile, KY

Nice and thin fabric. The cup seems to run a little small though. Otherwise it is great and lightweight. Amanda from Florida

This is the best running bra I've ever had and I've been running for 14 years. It holds me in place with no bounce. It's easy to get on and off with 2 clasps in the back. It's adjustable on the rib cage band and also the shoulder bands. It holds up after years of washing. I've had several of these for years. I still love the bra. Betty from Langford, SD

Two people are needed to put this bra on. It's impossible to do by yourself. Once I got it on, the support was good. It's so hard to get on.

Shock Absorber Response:Agreed, it is difficult to get on the first time. We suggest latching the top closure of the bra to pull it over your head, then pulling your arms through the arm holes. From there, connect the hook-and-eye closure. If flexibility restrains you, try latching the bra around your waist using the hook-and-eye closure and pulling the straps up to put arms though. From there, close the top closure at the back of your neckline. Rebecca from Rock Hall

I had a breast augmentation 6 months ago and measure 32DDD. I've gotten frustrated trying to find a supportive sports bra that fits my small rib cage and large bust. I love this bra! I am a yoga instructor and practice HIIT several times per week. This bra is UK sized, so going up a band size and down a cup size worked for me! I purchased a 34DD and will buy more.

I love shock absober bras! I've been athletic all my life and always struggled with the right sports bra for my large chest. I love running and crossfit, shock absorber is the best for my favorite activities! This one did not disappoint either! My bra size fluctuates a little from time to time and I'm greatful for Herroom size chart. It helped me select the perfect size! Shock absober bras are pricey but worth every penny!

I've had this bra previously and worn it for many years. I was glad to see it's still available. It's easy to get on and off with the two clasps in the back. It's a great running bra and really is a shock absorber. It's my favorite running/sports bra ever. Betty from Langford, SD, USA

This item looks well made, but if I can't get into and out of it by myself, it won't work for me. There are two sturdy fasteners on the back, that I cannot reach after the bra is on, and I cannot put the bra on with the fasteners fastened. I was hoping this bra would be different, but it is not. The fasteners NEED TO BE IN FRONT!!! This is a major problem with all bras and swimsuit tops.

HerRoom Response: I'm sorry this bra did not work for you. If you want a sports bra that is easy to take on and off, you should try a front closure sports bra like the Shock Absorber Active Zipped Plunge Sports Bra S00BW Janet from Bellingham, Washington USA

Best running bra ever. With this bra I don't have to wear two bras to achieve the support I need for running. Bra band runs small, I usually wear a 32F and I have to go up 1 band size and down 1 cup size. They are expensive but well worth the price. Just wish when they went on sale they had my size!

My HOLY GRAIL combo is the Shock Absorber Mult-sport bra in 30 HH & the Shock Absorber RUN racerback style sports bra in 32 G. By layering the 2 sports bras the weight of my chest gets distributed onto 2 points of my shoulders. Which makes it comfortable. I get ZERO bounce & 100% COMFORT with this combination! I wear 28 HH in Freya and Panache. Shock Absorber bands are smaller. So take note mine. Martha from Dallas, TX

Was hoping this bra would solve the wearing 2 bras to workout dilemma, but it unfortunately did not support or minimize bounce as I had hoped. Des from Roseville, CA

Really a great bra! I still want some extra support for running--I want zero bounce--but for jogging, spin classes and interval training at the gym, this works beautifully on its own. Plus, the racer back style looks good. JBS from NJ

This is hands down the best sports bra I have ever purchased. I have a small frame, narrow band size, and a large cup size, which makes it extremely difficult to find comfortable and functional high impact sports bras. For reference, I am 5'4'' and approx. 108-110 lbs. My band measurement is 28 and I typically wear Freya bras in 28G, 30DDD, or 30G (US) depending on the style. Having read several previous reviews, I purchased a size 32DD (UK) as recommended. I am very glad that I did as it is a perfect fit. The band is snug on the last clasp, which will allow me to adjust over time as it stretches from wear. The cups provide the perfect amount of coverage and do not leave any unflattering pinch of underarm fat that I've found with nearly every other sports bra. The straps are comfortable and overall support is perfect for running and other high impact exercise. Claire from FL/USA

I have been wearing this bra for about 3 years now and I would never buy from another brand. This bra keeps me worry free while training. No painful bouncing or it moving in places it shouldn't be. Nothing compares to this bra. Even at my biggest cup size (32F pre breast lift surgery) it kept me in check. I am a crossfit athlete for reference. Running, jumping, Olympic lifts, handstands....this bra handles it all. The band DOES run small. I would suggest going up a band size and down a cup size. KN from Atl, ga

Needed a high-impact high support bra. This is my first racerback. So easy to get on and off with an adjustable band. Great support while running. One problem - manufacturer suggests going up 1 band size and down a cup size. I ordered my usual 34D, way too tight. Ordered 36C, fits perfectly. Cheryl from NY

I'm 37 yrs old and I can honestly say I've NEVER been able to work out while wearing only one bra! (Typically I wear at least 2!) I am usually a 38G and need max support bras. I have never been able to wear a racerback style bra-until now! I was able to wear only this for a bra for my workout! Love it! Tara from Pittsburgh, PA

Looks like it is made with good construction overall. Sizing was WAY off. Typically I am a 30 band in most brands with some bras down to a 28. The band was so tight I could not close it.

HerRoom Response: I'm sorry this bra did not work for you. Sports bras tend to fit snug in order to reduce bounce. You may also want to take a look at our Bra Fitting Advice Page to make sure you are in the right size. Sara from Cleveland

I always wear a 34 no matter the brand. The band measurement on the 34 is only 24" in circumference when it should be 30 or 31. I wanted a racerback style, but it looks like I'll be sticking with my go to sports bra. Nicole from Florida

My first sports bra and I'm very happy with it. Its very tight and a struggle to get on, perhaps all sports bras are. But once it is on it is so very comfortable. Will definately buy another. Verna from Massachusetts
