/ sports bras - recommendations (preferably from women)
Do any really do what they say and prevent 78% wobble? (last few haven't but I'm hoping things have improved)
Thank you for any recommendations.
I have a couple of shock absorber ones that are good but one thing I'd avoid again is getting one that doesn't completely open. One of the ones I have is an over the head job and then the band fastens at both sides. I need help extracting myself from it afterwards!
Tesco high impact sports bra £6, have run miles in mine with no problems.
Really? Blimey. Will have a look.
Wife wears the shock absorber brand after trying many. When there is very energetic activity required she wears two. Apparently this has the desired effect.
A friend with problems in this area reccomends Shock Absorber as well..

I know I shouldn't but - I am available most Wednesdays !
Shock Absorber. But I also have an over-the-head Under Armour one which is very comfy, esp. with rucksack (no seams in critical places).
My wife wears Shock Absorber, although she's quite petite and I don't know how she compares to you size-wise.
Cycling Active November 2013 issue had a review of 7 bras - just fished it out and the test winner was Sport Jock Action sports bra, followed by the Pure Lime HRM compression bra, both rated for those with bigger assets. Best on a budget was H&M's offering at £9.99, but not rated for those above C.
Bought a Dance-eze(or Danseze, not quite sure on spelling) sports bra for my ex- wife which was very good for climbing . She was a DD.
Try a dancing shop or website.
tight fit is bad, links to breat cancer:
Running and other high impact sports *without* a sports bra (which, by its nature, will fit snugly) is horrendous and can cause all sorts of damage.
I like the Sport Jock Action very much - use it for running, cycling, climbing and all sorts. I am quite (ok, very) small though so I can't vouch for how well it will work for those better endowed than me (i.e., everyone else).
Not according to the experts. Avoid painful bras and stop worrying about cancer. Exercise is good for you too!
I had a shock absorber which was great and a supermarket one (may have been tesco but not sure?) Also great.
Don't forget that cancer treatment is extremely lucrative. It is not in the interests of orthodox medicine to advise preventative measures. Don't imagine the experts 'care' about health, they're advice comes from 'the system' which cares rather about profit.
Cancer research is a charity. They dont care about profit, they care about helping people.
Thanks everyone, am going for a shock absorber and a try on in tesco.
On balance and weight of clinical evidence, I will continue to truss them up for a couple of hours a day and take the cancer reducing benefits of exercise. Non trussing and running doesn't appeal all that much.
Trussing is such an under-used word.
Another vote for Shock Absorber from me. On my 3rd of these: http://www.shockabsorber.co.uk/en/products/active-range/active-multi-sports-support/
(they last a good couple of years and get demoted from running to biking when they start to stretch a little!)
