I just wrote another e-mail. It is similar to the e-mail to Boots that resulted in me making vast quantities of jam. I’m not sure this will have quite the same end result but we’ll see. Bloody sports bras.
So here it is, for your amusement:
Dear lovely bra customer services person,
I’ll briefly set the scene for you:
- I bought a ‘Shock Absorber Run’ bra yesterday in a size I won’t mention. Let’s just say that more than one letter is involved and it is big enough for small people to use as a tent.
- I am not a contortionist.
- I live on my own.
- I went to the gym this morning in my lovely new bra / tent.
What I would like to ask is this: Did a man devise the ‘Shock Absorber Run’ bra?
I ask because it does all the things it said it should (including – although I can’t be as exact as you on the figure – reducing ‘up to 78% bounce’ – how was that measured?!) ONCE YOU HAVE MANAGED TO GET IT ON!
As I mentioned, I am not a contortionist and I live on my own. This combination is not good for owners of ‘Shock Absorber Run’ bras unless you have a spare 20 minutes to get the thing on. I am a fasten-at-the-front-swizzle-to-the-back-and-arms-in kind of a bra wearer. Do that with this bra though and you are only part way there. You still have an additional clippy thing in the middle of your back placed exactly where your arms don’t bend to unless you dislocate a shoulder or two.
Could you possibly consider this the next time that a bra is designed? Or request any men present at the design phase to have a go at trying it on while they are rushing to get ready for the gym? If you also have instructions on how to best get into the bra that would be much appreciated. Although I am sure over time I will get a little more stretchy / capable of dislocating my shoulders on demand.
As I said though, all in all, the bra is great and I am very impressed with it.
Thank you very much for your time.
Again, I’ll let you know if I get response :o)
