That's it! I'm calling it. I've found the sports bra to end all other sports bras. This may sound hyperbolic, but I mean it with every fibre of my exercise-loving-being. I mean, no sports bra will ever make you feel like you've got tiny little C Cup boobies, but this bra comes pretty close! Bounce isn't even a thing when wearing this bra... it is magical!
Ladies, let me introduce you to the Shock Absorber Active D+ Classic Sports Bra.
Previously I've been a long-time fan of the succinctly-named Panache Sports Bra - in fact, I own six of them - so it was going to take an impressive sports bra to make me switch my allegiance.
From a design/manufacturing perspective, there are around 16 different pattern pieces to make the Shock Absorber Active D+ Classic Sports Bra work and none of it adds bulk or discomfort. This bra is an engineering masterpiece for busty sports bras! I am very impressed. And my mind is boggled.
There are more pros with this bra than cons, which I have listed below for you, so pay special attention to what I say about sizing!
The Shock Absorber Active D+ Classic Sports Bra costs $109.95 and can be purchased in Australia from Brava Lingerie here. I think this price is reasonable because I tend to find with busty sports bras that there is a direct correlation between price and quality, AND this bra is also an engineering masterpiece! Worth. Every. Penny.
*This review is not sponsored in any way by either Shock Absorber or Brava Lingerie. I purchase and pay full price for my lingerie so that my reviews can remain independent. This is merely me helping out the busty community and telling everyone when I discover a bra worth knowing about!
*Special shoutout to Marvell Lane and Brava Lingerie customer, Tanya, who cornered me at the Tuscany launch last year and told me I "MUST TRY THIS BRA". Thank you, you were right. I love it.
All fuller bust bra reviews by Marvell Lane is designed to help women from a D cup, E cup, F cup, G cup to an H cup find lingerie that will work for them and that is worth spending their money on.
Marvell Lane Musings is the blog space Rachael Calvert started for her fuller bust swimwear label Marvell Lane. I created Marvell Lane as a swimwear label designed fashion-conscious women with large busts. My dream is that Marvell Lane will become the go-to swimwear label for fuller busted women with designs from underwired bikinis to wire-free bikinis and amazing one pieces you'd love to wear all day.
My current fuller bust swimwear size range goes from 8D, 8DD, 8E, 8F, 8G, 8H, 10D, 10DD, 10E, 10F, 10G, 10H, 12D, 12DD, 12E, 12F, 12G, 12H, 14D, 14DD, 14E, 14F, 14G, 14H, 16D, 16DD, 16E, 16F, 16G, 16H. So I hope that you find your cup size in our swimwear range and if you don't then get in touch so I know which other sizes people are looking for!
Ladies, let me introduce to you the strapless bra to end all strapless bras for busty women. It's sexy (shock!), plunging (disbelief!) and dare-I-say-it - comfortable (you're lying!). You better believe it.
