Ask the Experts - Let's Talk Sports Bras!

With a new year comes the promise of a new fitness regime. Many of us will resolve to drop those pesky pounds this New Year and the expert team at Poinsettia is here to help you find the best exercise bra no matter what your choice of sport. 

Exercise sets the breasts in motion causing bouncing that our bodies were not designed to resist. This can put strain on your shoulders, back and neck as well as the soft connective tissue in your breasts. It's SO important to wear a correctly fitted sports bra to combat these strains and support the sistas while exercising. 

Shock Absorber remains one of the leading sports bra brands in the UK and across the globe. If you're looking for high impact sport support Shock Absorber is there to get the job done.
