I am a long time big fan of the regular Enell sports bra , but i only realized this existed recently. I had a breast reduction 2 months ago, and you only can wear wireless front closing post op or sport bras after the surgery. I came across this bra when I was searching bras that fit that criteria. While the regular enell also a front closing wireless sports bra, but that would have been too harsh after the surgery. When I realized they have a lite version I ordered it immediately, and it did not disappoint.
It was perfect after the surgery offering just the right amount of support without being super compressive like the regular Enell would have been.
I had a large reduction with almost 3 kg(over 6 lb) tissue taken out, so I was not really sure the size I needed. I ordered this a few days after my surgery when my over-bust was around 42.5-43", so I was on the border between the size 2 and 3. I ordered the bigger one (size 3), which was good at the time becase I was swollen after the surgery and also my breast were super tender. Now that all the swelling went away, I do not quite fill out the cups and there is slight wrinkling. Because it is on the bigger side on me now, it doesn't provide enough support for real sports activity, but I will use it as a lounge bra. My over bust is 41" now and technically that is included in both the size 2 and it is the start of size 3, but I am definitely a size 2 now. Somehow my new breast shape is such that I generally need 1 cupsize smaller in all bras than the calculators say. Based on online calculators i am 34 FF (UK) now, but I actually only need 34F(UK) bras and depending on the style and time of the month, I may even fit 34E(UK ) ,which is 34DDD in US and Canada.
Anyway the sizing is quite accurate, but if you are between sizes go with the smaller size if you want more support.
As I needed this immediately, I ordered whatever was available on amazon with a 1 day delivery and that was this "Ecru" colour. But let's face it, this colour is ugly. I know generally the "nude" colours are not that aesthetically pleasing, but yikes. I had the regular enell bra in the ecru colour and that was actually nice .
So unless you this colour is the only available or it is much cheaper than the other ones, go with any other colour but this.
Otherwise, this is a very good sports bra that offers great support for something that is wireless. I have the regular enell bra for high impact activities because nothing (not even panache sport) beats that when it comes to control the bounce. But the regular enell feels a bit overkill for something like strength training, and also much higher closing so hard to wear under sleeveless tops. This is a much lower cut all around and I can wear it with sleveless sport top. I am going to order a size 2 in pink.
