Why do you need to wear a sports bra?
Contrary to what you may think, there are no muscles in the breast – only the skin and the delicate Cooper’s ligaments support the breast tissue. Once the ligaments have been stretched beyond their limit, as a result of breast movement during exercise, no amount of toning exercises can restore them!
Wearing a great sports bra can change your workout. A Shock Absorber sports bra will provide you with the superior bounce control and comfort you need to be able to focus on your performance and enjoy your workout without distractions! With ground breaking research informing design and development and inspired by athletes over the years, every women can now get tailor made sports bra support up to a HH cup.
Top Tips For a Perfect Fit
Getting the right bra is important for a top workout. If in doubt we recommend that you get professionally fitted as a staggering 80% of women are wearing the wrong-sized bra. To ensure your sports bra gives you the best support possible while training, keep in mind the following:
The band around the chest should be level front and back. It needs to be comfortable but firm. A good gauge to ensure the underband fits well is if you can ¬ fit the width of two ¬ fingers between the underband and skin. Any more space means the band is too big and could cause friction.
The Cup Size
This should contain the whole of the breast. There should be no bulging over the top or on the side and should just have minimal cleavage on show.
The straps should be adjusted to ¬fit securely on the shoulders with only a one-inch give. Adjust the straps where possible to ensure a secure but comfortable ¬ fit – they shouldn’t be too tight.
Do The Bounce Test
Jump up and down, is the bra supportive?

Breasts have no muscle so when you exercise, your breasts move putting strain on the ligaments, this can stretch them causing long term sagging.
