"Last weekend my husband and I competed in a Run Auckland event. To the amusement of the crowd he won a sports bra voucher as a spot prize. I was ridiculously excited, and even more so after I checked this website and discovered the fantastic range of sports bra sizes available. I have long bemoaned the lack of sports bras over a size d or dd. (My suggestion that there be a hurdles event at the Special Olympics for women with bra sizes over a D cup, wearing non-sports bras in order to highlight our plight has been met with a lot of enthusiasm!)
The following day I popped in to Avokado in Newmarket and now have my very own shock absorber bra. I've tried it out twice this week and by far the biggest compliment I can pay is that I didn't even notice I was wearing it. It's wonderfully supportive, with comfortable stable straps.
So this fairly long message is just to say 'thank you' so much, from a very grateful beneficiary of a Run Auckland spot prize!"

“I have a rather large chest 36E and I was due to run in the 2013 Rotorua Half Marathon and ended up trying on and buying a Shock Absorber bra the night before the race at the expo. I was fairly game to run 21km in it the next day - but boy am I glad I did - amazing, what I cannot believe is the lack of underwire and yet my breasts barely moved - I cannot say that is the same for my other brands of sports bras. Extremely comfortable and I will definitely chuck out my other sports bras and be sticking with Shock Absorbers!
Can't wait to try it on while horse riding too...
Thanks so much for creating bras for the bigger chested ladies that are fun, functional and damn comfortable!"

“I love my new Shock Absorber sports bra. I've had many different sports bras over the years for netball and the gym, all of which have been underwire. I didn't realise I could get such great comfort and support without the wire! It's worth every penny!”

"I just got a Shock Absorber bra and I can't believe I have never had one before now. It is amazing!
I have a 3 1/2 month old baby and my breasts have gone from a 10C to a 10E. I am a runner and after having my baby I was wearing two bras for running, but with the Shock Absorber that is all I need and there is very minimal movement. So practical, AND so comfortable! Thank you so much Shock Absorber!!"

"I can absolutely vouch for the comfort and support of Shock Absorber sports bras. I absolutely love mine and will not exercise without it! I'm a 32E and it's brilliant to own a sports bra that is super comfortable AND supportive - wouldn't you know it; bigger busted women DO exercise! I'm glad they are available in New Zealand now."
Anna, Auckland, New Zealand
Shock Absorber is definitely the best bra I have worn on the netball court. It is very supportive and comfortable, with the extra bonus of having no underwire. I strongly recommend this bra and think it is fantastic!
