Shock Absorber Sports Bra

Number one in the UK, Shock Absorber sports bras will make you feel incredibly supported for all of your work outs. Providing comfortable bras to be worn during high-intensity exercise, Shock Absorber sports bras are produced by breast protection experts, so you can trust that you’re getting the best quality. Find out more about Shock Absorber sports bras below.

Shock Absorber Bra

The Shock Absorber bra and brand was launched in 1995, after being prompted a year prior by research carried out at Edinburgh University on the effects of exercise on women’s breasts. Since then, they have launched a variety of sports bras in different designs, all encompassing various qualities to ensure that breasts are completely supported during exercise.

Research shows that it’s possible for an A cup to bounce up to 4cm during exercise, whilst a G cup can bounce all the way up to 14cm. Breasts can gradually stretch as a result of repeated impact and exercise, causing irreversible damage. This means that sports bras are an essential: they’re needed to provide extra support and positioning during exercise.

All Shock Absorber sports bras, no matter the design, are composed of four crucial key fabric features. These features are what separate them from how other sports bras are made.

  • They’re made with quick-dry fabrics. This fabric removes the chance of rubbing in key areas and improves the body's temperature regulation.

  • The fabrics are also moisture-wicking. This is a fancy way of saying that they repel sweat from the body, ensuring that the skin can stay dry for the duration of your workout.

  • They’re durable and abrasion-resistant, too. This essentially means that they’ve got good longevity, as this works to reduce fabric pilling. So you’re sure to get a good life out of your Shock Absorber sports bra!

  • Finally, the fabrics are Sports Performance. This means that they’re breathable and ensure air gets to the skin, so you’re guaranteed to stay cool whilst exercising.

Shock Absorber Bras

Shock Absorber sports bras come in three different types: low, medium and high impact. Low impact is for light exercise, medium impact is for mild-intensity workouts, and high impact is for high-intensity exercise. Good high impact sports bras are usually hard to come by, but Shock Absorber sports bras are the obvious exception.

Some of their most popular bras are the Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra, Shock Absorber Active Multi Sports Bra, Shock Absorber High Impact Sports Bra and the Shock Absorber Classic Sports Bra, all of which you can buy at BraForMe. They’re available in sizes A-F, so they’re perfect for a range of shapes and sizes.

What Does a Shock Absorber Bra Do?

Shock Absorber sports bras are scientifically tested and designed to:

  • Reduce chest movement by up to 78% (twice as much as a normal bra)

  • Be fast-drying and moisture-wicking

  • Be light and durable

Do Shock Absorber Bras Run Small?

Shock Absorber sports bras are recommended to go up a band size with the Ultimate Run and Active Multi Sports bras, as these do come up small. With any brand, it’s important to remember that size can differ, so sometimes it’s a case of trial and error with finding the perfect fit.

How to Measure For a Shock Absorber Sports Bra

Shock Absorber sports bras are measured in the same way as all bras: with your band and cup measurements. If you don't know your size or how to measure yourself, head to our guide on How to Measure Bra Size, which tells you everything you need to know.

Our inches to cup conversions are the same as Shock Absorber, so you can take your normal cup without worrying about converting it. Under bands on Shock Absorber bras can differ though, so we’ve included a band size chart below.
