Care Details

Just like your sports bra takes care of you, you can return the favour and take good care of it too! It’s ideal to wash your sports bra every time you wear it, but this varies on how intense your workout is. boobydoo suggests you avoid tumble drying as it changes the integrity of the bra. If your bra is underwired then hand washing it delicately is more efficient and will extend the lifespan of your bra.  We recommend following the manufacturers guidelines for how to wash your sports bra, but for more of our tips, read our blog post:

Good support but comes up small
The back size comes up really small on this. My other shock absorbers are a 30 I had to get a 32 and it's still a bit tight.

Very odd sizing
used to run in these, had two. Very tight around my 32DD torso, but for running I like them tight.
Went to buy another as the hooks had given up on both, but the sizing was very weird - in my usual 32DD I could barely breathe - I do need to breathe while running. Tried the 34D but that cut into my armpits. Eventually setted for a 34C which passed the bounce test while not grabbling my armpits. Cups seem to come a reasonable way up the chest. However during the first run in mile 2 I felt the band moving around on my ribs, obviously too big, even on the smallest hook.
Pros - does work if you can get the size right. Easy to put on and off - just do up the racer clip before putting over your head, then fasten the hooks when on.
Cons - sizing very odd - I haven't been a "c" cup for more than 20 years! BIG difference between sizes. Current one consigned to gym classes and squash, definitely not up to running spec. Material got hard with washing. Strap length also funny - in the 32DD I was right on the last slot, but in the 34C I wish it would go smaller.

Will try Panache and Moving Comfort Juno next.

Great bra, wire fastenings bent though
Love this bra and it did a great job-probably my favourite sports bra shape-felt very supported. Unfortunately the metal hook and eye fastening at the back did not last long, breaking after only 2 months. 1 bent very quickly out of shape, the hook came out and it rubbed my back. The increased pressure then caused the other one to rupture and was very uncomfortable . I have had to send it back. This is a shame as its a lovely bra. I am going to order another one-hope it was justa a one off!

Very odd sizing
Used to wear this as my main running bra. My current two have given out with the hooks pulling out of the material. I went to buy another and found the chest band *very* tight. I usually wear a 32DD in Shock Absorber Run, hooks and straps on the longest setting, and same size as my normal bras. I do like my sports bras to be cosy but this was silly tight. Sizing up to a 34 I had to drop to a C cup. Unfortunately the straps are now slightly too long even on the shortest setting. Sizing down to a B cup will reveal an amount of cleavage that indicates insufficient coverage, hence bounce. So I tried the 34C but find on 5K runs that there is some movement in the chest band even with it on the tightest hook, and definitely more bounce than I had in the 32DD. Has the sizing changed since I bought my forst ones a few years ago?

I have no trouble with the top fastening - simply do it up before putting the bra on over your head! Simples! I have never had an issue with the strap adjuster "tube" system - other than there simply isn't enough adjustment in strap length. I don't have any problem with the shape the Run produces for me, looks fine under vests.

I shall have to try the Panache and Moving comfort bras instead.

Great Running Bra
I have bought three of these - they are so supportive and comfortable. However I am sad to say that after a year I cannot rely on them for outdoor running anymore as one of the hooks on the adjustable straps keeps sliding out of it's tube, and I can't put it back in without taking it off - so no good if you're out road running! I think it's because the hook gets stretched wider with wear and tear so it doesn't hold anymore. If only it was made with the normal strap length adjustment, then this wouldn't happen. I'm hoping this hook/strap info gets back to the designers somehow, as this bra is otherwise hard to beat, and I would recommend it.
