Recommend a sports bra?

I used to have a really good shock absorber one for jogging but the buckle eventual snapped and it was never the same.

Tried another one but it wasn't supportive enough for my DDs.

Can you recommend one to strap them down?

I have a shock absorber one and am a H cup. I have found it very good at harnessing them so I don't end up with black eyes at the gym.

Admittedly the colour is horrific though

Sounds like what I need. What brand is it?

Shock Absorber is a brand, I have one for running that holds me very firmly, but the sizing is a bit weird (try on, if you can, or get several from somewhere with a good returns policy)

There's a useful table of which of their styles is best for which activities here:

Freya or shock absorber are very good. Even if you're large of nork.

I found the Panache one very secure (36G)

You can often get previous season's colours at a big discount.

Can't link from my phone but this is the bra I bought

Thanks. I'm so out of it today. Pretty sure I had the Shock Absorber Run Sports Bra.

I don't want to get another buckle one though. They're so fiddly.

I have two shock absorber bras( have only ever used that brand for sports bras) 32G size.
Recently bought the racer back style and a more conventional over the shoulder type. I prefer the conventional style more

If you want good support you are going to have to put up with fiddly I am afraid.
