FACT: Wearing a Shock Absorber sports bra is proven to reduce breast movement

44%* of women who exercise regularly do not wear sports bras.

Inadequate breast support, coupled with excessive breast movement, is the most likely cause of sore and tender breasts after exercise. Also, exercising without a good sports bra can make you uncomfortable, distract you and affect your confidence.

There are no muscles in the breast.

Only skin & Cooper’s ligaments support breast tissue and any excessive amount of breast movement puts strain on these ligaments causing irreversible damage. Once breasts have dropped because of stretching these ligaments, nothing can naturally restore them to their former position.

Your breasts can bounce up to 14cm** when unsupported during exercise.

Even among 34As/75As, tests found that breast movement ranged up to an average of 40mm away from the resting place of the body, which can lead to breast sag.

Wearing a Shock Absorber sports bra is proven to reduce breast movement by up to 78%***.

This has proven to be as much as twice as effective at minimising breast movement as a ‘normal’ bra.
