I'm not much of a bouncer.
So when I was asked to sample the Running Room's best selling support sports bra: The Shock Absorber, I really didn't know what to expect. I had never worn a full support sports bra before.
Yesterday I took the bra out on a sample run. Matt came along to take photos and he was the official bounce watcher haha! Rough day on the job. During my run test there was absolutely NO bouncing at all. Personally I loved the bra! It is super comfortable to wear. I won't need this much support on a daily basis but if I'm doing an intense trail run or bike ride this will be a good bra to have on!
Because I'm not really a bouncer for good measure I had two more well endowed ladies at Bod Squad sample the bras to get a real picture of how well it works.
As for my testers:
Carolyn came to Bod Squad on her first day wearing three sports bras! I knew she would be the perfect person to trial the bra with me. Carolyn sampled the same bra I'm wearing "Run Bra by Shock Absorber". Here's what she had to say:
“I tried the shock absorber bra for the first time, and was completely blown away. I have always been a larger cup size, on a small (ish) frame, finding a sports bra that works is near impossible. I always found it comical switching from 1 bra all day at work to 3-4 “sports” bras just to hit the gym.
Christie Preston, through Bod Squad, puts us through intense plyometric workouts, and therefore bounce is something I dread. After several high exhausting jump squats I didn’t feel a thing, only wearing 1 BRA! Incredible product, I don’t think I’ll ever buy another kind of bra, amazing!” – Carolyn Porier
Genvieve also had a similar experience, she sampled the #2 best selling bra – The Top Max Sports Bra – and here's what she had to say:
"No bounce. Absolutely no movement at all! I loved the bra!" – Genvieve Westrope
Overall We Loved:
- The support: better than three bras!
- The adjustable straps on the back – genius idea!
- Comfortable fitting band.
- Fit well under tops.
Would I recommend it? Yes … but it depends on the person!
To anyone of my clients who is well endowed, absolutely! For those with large breasts I think this bra is a must!
For me (and fellow smaller busted ladies) this much bra support just isn't necessary on a daily basis. But great to have if you're doing a super jumpy intense workout!
