I use the term “we” because I had to enrol the help of a less well endowed runner to try out the Shock Absorber Ultimate Gym Bra, which although generously sized, does not quite stretch to my proportions.
I can confirm that the test model was still sufficiently substantial to ensure a thorough testing in the bounce department.
This is a supportive garment, you feel and look, well ensconced. Firmly grasped as it were.
It has a double clasped connection, the normal hook and eye fastening plus the additional cross over back clasp. This extra connection pulls your shoulders back, forces you into a fine posture and secures you firmly. I defy anyone to get into it single handedly though.
I had to provide assistance in the gym changing rooms to ensure the bra was tested in its full glory. I’m not sure how practical most bra wearers will find this requirement for an extra pair hands.
It won’t be a problem for the extremely supple and the double jointed but for mere mortals you will have to ask for help.
Once on its as sturdy as it appears. Minimal bounce and extremely comfortable.
The Shock Absorber bra has a bonus extra in the form of a headphone hook on the top of the left cup. I think this is a fantastic idea as you an never have enough solutions to the problem of the errant headphone cable.
It’s a fine looking contraption as well.
Have any of you tried one? Can you get into it on your own? Is there a knack?
