Sports Bra?

Postby shye » 07 Apr 2014, 12:30

I've lost (Don't ask me how!) my sports bra, but it is very old. It's Shock Absorber, 34 / H.
Any new ones to look at these days? I've seen M & S make their own, anyone tried them?
I'm now a 34/G so it's not much different but I need a lot of support.

Enell. No competition. Ugliest item of underwear you will ever see, and expensive, but they beat the shock absorbers by miles. I used to wear them for running in, and was a 32F/G at that point so in need of some support!

I love the one I got from Bravissimo some years ago. No more black eyes.

I have this one, and the straps clip to make it a racer back making it even more supportive. I really rate it, more than any sports bra I've had before. ... /pr100cpr/

You can get it cheaper than in this link!

I wear shock absorbers too, mine have a little clip that turn them into racer backs. So comfy I usually wear instead of a normal bra.

I got a bright pink one from M and S. I'm H cup and just went for my first run and they were going nowhere. Really pleased with it.

Love my Shock Absorber ones. Make sure you have the right fit though, or else it won't work as well as it should....the bra guru way of fitting, not the M&S way.

I found my shock absorber (near the washing machine!) so I am not buying a new one just yet (I have no pennies!). But ew a push up sports bra? And equally - M&S bra fittings are useless, aren't they? They told me I was 38F when I was really 34H.
