Unlike 3rd Rock's other sports bras, the Aurora 3 is made of recycled polyamide and elastane instead of organic cotton. (I feel like cotton is a poor choice of material to make a sports bra out of.) It's intended primarily for climbing and other low impact sports.

It comes in sizes XS to L, in black, magenta (pink), blackcurrant (plum), and a limited edition print made from upcycled fabric scraps from their Solstice leggings, which is pretty neat. The XS is about the same as a Montiel XS or a Lululemon size 4. It fits me comfortably.

The triple cross straps in the back are so pretty and easily layerable under clothes. The part of the straps that actually sits on my shoulders is quite wide (ranging from 2 to 3cm) and doesn't dig in. The band stretches up to 82cm (32in) with force but doesn't ride up on my 68cm (27in) ribcage at all during wear.

The cups have much higher coverage than the XS - Montiel » Teardrop Bra (M-5000), and fit similarly to the XS - Montiel » Thalia Bra, although there is a large triangular fabric panel in the centre, separating the two "cups." I couldn't figure out how to get a meaningful measure for cup depth though.

OveralI found the Aurora a very comfy thing to wear all day and during climbing. It didn't dig in, ride up, slide around, restrict movement, or cause any other such grievances. Love it (but wouldn't go for a run in it).

2018 Update: The label printed on to the inside of the cup is wearing off, which is slightly itchy. I wish that that part had been applied better and elsewhere. I think the band has also stretched somewhat more than my other sports bras, but I'd need to actually remeasure to confirm this. Will get around to it.
