Shock Absorber Active Shaped Support sports bra review SS16 collection
Sports bras are absolutely THE most important piece of sports kit for women. Although I've got a modest bust I am resolute about adequate support for all activities, especially sport.
My list of exercise activities isn't exactly vast; running and boot camp so I find that all my sports bras are used for both (especially as I don't have all that much to keep under control), a multi purpose sports bra suits me well. I've been over the moon with my Active Multi Sports bra which I've been wearing since November. The Shock Absorber SS16 collection is made up of four fabulous styles, the other three being the Ultimate Run Bra, Active Zipped Plunge Bra and this, the Active Shaped Support Bra which I've been trying out for the last couple of weeks.

This is the first sports bra in a long time that I'd describe as dressy, it looks gorgeous and makes me feel really feminine; a snuggly bright blue base layer with a black gauze overlay with strong shaped stitching. It's supremely comfortable to wear as the soft blue base is lightly padded, soft and breathable, it wicks away moisture and doesn't budge at all. In terms of fit, I'm really happy with it, my size is just right and the single clasp at the back (it has three hooks, for just.in.case) makes it an easy one to pop on and more importantly, off. The adjustable shoulder straps are much wider than any of my non-sports bras to avoid digging in. Shock Absorber know their stuff when it comes to support; it's no surprise they are an award winning sports bra brand who specialise in breast health, that's what you expect when their designs are based around the results of scientific research in how to combat breast bounce and how us ladies can take good care of bodies during exercise.
Back in 1994 Shock Absorber designed their original bra and soon in depth research aided the constant development of sports bras to control movement and allow women to feel comfortable and confident to take on everything they want to.

So how have I been getting on with my Active Shaped Support Bra? Well, I'm happy as Larry. It's super comfy and allows me great flexibility without feeling too restricted. I forget it's on, it's not  It's been great for boot camp which involves a fair bit of everything; running, crawling, jumping, floorwork, planking, HIIT sessions. Although this bra is recommended for tennis, golf, dance, cycling and aerobics I would say it's perfectly suited to all my boot camp activities as well as running on the treadmill. It's a brilliant all rounder. 
The Shock Absorber collection is available at Asos  and the RRP of my bra is £28 and comes in sizes 32-36A, 32-38A-D and 32-36DD.
