I took up yoga in Jan this year and even though it isn’t a strenuous activity, doing the sun salutation in a regular bra is rather unbecoming and not the most comfortable thing in the world so having a sports bra is just part and parcel of any sport.
I was given the chance to trial the new running Shock Absorber and by god its beautiful!
Unlike most sports bras that aren’t strictly bras they are crop tops, this one really steps it up. The colour is stunning, the picture doesn’t do it justice. The material is super soft almost like cashmere not just to the touch but to wear, against the skin its a dream and totally breathable which is what you want when you are bent over with your bum in the air! There are no visible seams to the inside either giving the ultimate in comfort. I’ve had ones in the past that have had massive seams at the sides that itch and rub when you work up a sweat. It offers unbelievable support and I love the fact it fastens like a bra at the back and with fully adjustable straps and the racer back fastening it couldn’t be more perfect. I was a little concerned I would need help to fasten the clip that makes it into a racer back, however I managed to fasten it without assistance and I didn’t need to be super bendy to do so. * there where no strained muscles in the trailing of this bra*
My only gripe is that it runs slightly small, i’m a 34B and this one is on the last hook and still could do with an extra few cm. However it doesn’t pinch or nip anywhere you are just aware that you are wearing it
Figleaves stock a wide range of Shock Absorber sports bra’s.
