A Sporting Chance – Shock Absorber Review

I have used Random.org to choose a winner and that person is….Katrina Day-Reilly

Congratulations – I will send you an email now! 

Approximately a month ago I decided that it was time to stop eating so much chocolate, to don the exercise outfits and start getting fit. I received an email from Shock Absorber shortly after asking if I would like to test run and review their new Sports Bra! Well so close after my decision that must mean it is meant to be, mustn’t  it?
I have tried Sports Bras before and have never really got on with them, they are either not that supportive, don’t fit your lumps and bumps or they are so tight you can’t breathe so exercise is out of the question anyway!


“Shock Absorber is the UK’s leading sports bra brand, providing expert breast support to active women. Since the brand launched in 1995 Shock Absorber has been committed to on-going research into the design and development of sports bras. The Shock Absorber range offers scientifically proven support and is synonymous with performance, style, comfort and quality”

I was sent the Shock Absorber Run Bra to give a go, perfect timing for my get fit plan! The bra is so soft and fits perfectly, and you will be pleased to know actually stops bounce and supports! I know, a massive bonus!

This one has been designed for running and certainly does the job, but I have to say it works perfectly for the likes of me who would rather get their exercise bouncing around the living room on the games on my Console.

The bra is very well made and features an expected bra type clasp, adjustable straps and lovely material – I would definitely recommend this bra!

    My fav exercise (although I’m not sure fav is the right word, I have to lose weight and it’s cheaper than the gym) is trail running which is very muddy in this weather but great fun really. I also like TaeKwon Do
