CelerSport Racerback Yoga Bra
For the sake of simplicity, I am reviewing all 3 of the CelerSport Racerback Yoga Bras that I have together. ☺
The CelerSport Racerback Yoga bra is a medium support lounge/yoga bra. It is made of 90% Nylon & 10% Spandex allowing for some hug but not a lot of constriction or compression. While the description stated great for Yoga, Pilates, Walking, Swimming, Jogging, and Rhythmic Exercise, I’d skip the latter two for sure.
The sizing chart stated a Small=30A-C & 32A-B, Medium= 30D, 32C, 34A-C, & 36A, and a Large=32-34D, 36B, 38A-B, & 40A but as you can see, the Large works very ... well for my “squishy yet firm” 28:16 (28KK) size, and with quadding on the Medium. I’d say the Medium would work well to a 28:13 (28J) easily. Firmer breasts with less squish could easily wear the Medium at my band/cup size or even possibly larger. I wouldn’t see any issue with the sister sizes working just as well either as the band is very stretchy.
The bands are not tight to say the least but since they are quite long they are comfy and surprisingly supportive. I use these for sleeping, so I haven’t tested them for workout worthiness, but they are comfortable for sleeping for sure! Compared to Molke, I’d definitely take these every time. Besides their ~$10 price tag (compared to Molke’s ~$50 one) the CelerSport ones are just far more comfortable. Part of that comfort is lack of seams so no rough edges to irritate sensitive skin. The neckline and around the arms have edging, but no rough or exposed seams. Even at the shoulders, the “seams” are flat overlapped, not a true seam, so very comfortable.
I took photos of each with tape measures in place today, so as you can see the bands did stretch out a bit since I first measured them earlier this year (Feb-Apr.) So even though the flat measurement is right around my actual underbust measurement. I guess I am a bit rough when pulling these over my head/shoulders/breasts! They don’t feel loose when on though, so the effects aren’t really noticeable. And, yes, I can see they are a bit loose in the band in the photos.
Sorry that the black one didn’t photograph as well as the others!
And now for the specifics of each:
Medium: Olive Green
The first one I got was a Medium in Olive at a great price of $7.99. The Olive is a darker dingier Green color, so close to the typical Olive color. The band is a long comfort band, roughly 2.6” tall. The band new was a flat 24.4” & stretched to 38”. There are no hooks as this is a pull over type Yoga bra.
The gore is 4.75” from the bottom of the band, or 2.25” if measured from the top of the band. The Wing is 4.55” from the bottom & 2” from the top of the band. The cup height is 6” from the top of the band, and 8.7” from the bottom.
I do get quadding in this one, as the cups are not quite accommodating enough, but I do still wear this one when the other two are dirty, as it’s still fairly comfortable even with the quadding. (Again, I only use these for sleeping.)
Large in Black
The second one I got was a Large in Black, also priced $7.99. The band is a long comfort band, roughly 2.6” tall. The band new was a flat 24.5” & stretched to 42”.
The gore is 5.3” from the bottom of the band, or 2.75” from the top of the band. The Wing is 4.55” from the bottom & 2” from the top of the band. The cup height is 7” from the top of the band, and 9.8” from the bottom.
This one is accommodating enough for my breasts, and the band does not ride up on me at all. Again, I only use it for sleeping, which it is the most comfortable bra I’ve tried for that purpose!
Large in Mustard Yellow
The last one I got was a Large in Mustard (Yellow Brown), which was priced a bit higher at $9.99. My only reason for getting this one was because I loved the Black one and wanted more, but the Mustard was the only color remaining.
The band is a long comfort band, roughly 2.6” tall. The band new was a flat 25.2” & stretched to 36”.
The gore is 5.25” from the bottom of the band, or 2.25” from the top of the band. The Wing is 4.5” from the bottom & 2” from the top of the band. The cup height is 6” from the top of the band, and 9” from the bottom.
This Mustard Yellow one was a quasi mix between the Medium Olive and the Large Black in its measurements, yet it fits similar to the Large Black and when wearing, I don’t notice a difference between the two at all.
Right before adding these bras, I looked them up on Amazon (where I purchased them from) and I find that they are currently unavailable. I have emailed the seller, who is also the Manufacturer, asking if they plan on getting more in. If/when they do, I will try to remember to add the link here.
All and all, these are the most comfortable sleeping bras I’ve ever tried, and believe me I have tried dozens. For the price, they are superior to all others for sure, and I would definitely recommend these for Sleeping, and am confident they’d work beautifully for Yoga as well.
*Side note unrelated to the actual bra. The bra on photos show my permanent shoulder grooves quite well! This is why my shoulder straps always look super tight, when in reality, they are usually quite loose. (Loose enough to put my whole hand under the strap at the shoulder and then still have room to spare.) The plus side to these grooves is I rarely have an issue with my straps falling off my shoulders.
