I bought a few pair of New Balance sports bras to see what they were like. Some of them are quite nice, but this one is my favorite of the four.

New Balance makes sports bras in a lot of different colors and styles. The Shockingly Unshocking bra is a simple bra with a little bit of padding. It is sport bra with a bit of extra special attention for high impact times. It is made of a 44% Polyester, 44% Recycled Polyester, and 12% Spandex blend.

The Spandex blend is a nice addition, especially for the heavy days when you might be sweating profusely. The bra is a little more comfortable than I had expected considering the Polyester. The bra is actually pretty comfortable.

It is made incorporating what New Balance calls the New Balance Pink Ribbon Revolution throughout the product development cycle of the bras. It has cup lining and encapsulation and compression support for high impact and high profile.

Overall I really like the Shockingly Unshocking Bra. It is a great addition to the collection.
