|Shock Absorber Active Zipped Plunge*|
I mentioned this bra recently in my Friday Favourites. It's been on my radar for a while and I was over the moon when they sent me this one to try out. I tried it on straight away (tags and all) to check the fit, which is perfect. With a Metafit class the next morning at 6.45, I wasted no time in putting it through it's paces.
The bra itself is nice and supportive, the fabric is thick enough that you feel as though your boobs are getting the support they need. I think the main feature which drew me to this model over any other is that the bra fastens with a zip at the front, rather than any clasps at the back. For my gym workout and Metafit or kettlebell classes, this is really useful to me as we do a lot of floor work and it's a lot more comfortable to do crunches and reverse crunches on the floor with this racer back being nice and smooth against your back.
The zip is kept away from the skin with a nice thick fabric panel behind, which makes it super comfortable at the front as well as the back. I wore this for about 90mins whilst I was in my class and then did a gym workout, and there was no sign of any rubbing or friction and nothing uncomfortable at all.
I'd certainly recommend the Active Zipped Plunge Bra. A sports bra is essential (I found this out to my peril on the one day when I'd managed to forget to pack one, and carried on regardless thinking "how much difference can it really make?!") and this is such a step up from my previous ones, which have generally all come from supermarkets sale sections for just a few pounds at a time.
The best deal I can find on this Shock Absorber one is on this site, where you can order one for £20. I definitely think it would be a valuable addition to your gym bag. Do you have any products in yours which you couldn't do without?
