In my eyes you only need to invest in two things to start working out – A good pair of trainers and a quality sports bra.

Some shocking stats for you –

–  “44% of women who exercise regularly do not wear sports bras!”

– “You boobs can bounce up to 14cm when unsupported during exercise” – OUCH!

Just take a peek at this Bounce-O-Meter to see exactly what I’m talking about!

For me, Shock Absorber have always been my sports bra of choice. I remember going to JJB with my mum when I was younger to pick out my first ever sports bra. It was a Shock Absorber one – very similar to the one above, but in a boring white colour. It lasted for years and every bra I purchased since has been a Shock Absorber one as I know they work fantastically.

You can see from above that I’m not a small chested girl so when it comes to working out, it is absolutely vital that I have a bra that supports me well and looks after my boobs while the rest of my body takes a battering – be it from Insanity workouts, running or pilates. Shock Absorber design bras for specific workouts as your boobs move in different ways depending on the exercise you are doing.

The Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra* is obviously designed specifically for running and reduces bounced by up to 78% – perfect for those with bigger boobs! The bra is very supportive without being uncomfortable. My boobs are definitely not strapped down and the design is friction free so there’s no discomfort from movement. I love them that much that I actually have 3 now – one of each – black, white and pink! There is some science behind it, in that Shock Absorber have an Infinity-8 support system with counteracts the breasts’ figure-of-eight movement during running. All very technical, but also quite funny to think about. Plus the bra comes in the most gorgeous hot pink – perfect for Valentine’s Day workouts today! In fact Shock Absorber regularly design bras is gorgeous colours so you don’t have to wear the same boring white one. I’ve got my eye on their Active Shaped Support in a gorgeous purple colour!

Have you always worn a sports bra when working out, or did it take you a little while to invest? Which brand do you trust with your boobs?

    I have this bra too! I have had a few different sports bra’s for the gym, but when I started running I knew I needed something else. Also being of the ample bosom, this bra is perfect, no movement. I have a pink and purple one, then got a bargain black one after the inverness 10K last year. I really like the colour of yours though!
