Saw this recommended on the abrathatfits subreddit, then it turned up on Amazon Prime Wardrobe, so I thought I’d try. Online reviews said it runs small in the band and cups. I wear 34G/36FF in most Panache bras and 36FF in Shock Absorber Multi Sport so I sized up to a 38 band. In this brand the cup progression runs D-DD-DDD-F-G. My sister size would be 38F but keeping the reviews in mind I decided to go with 38G.
There is no underwire but it has separate moulded foam cups so it offers a limited degree of encapsulation. There’s a small bikini closure type hook in the front that ... lays between the protective facing and the zipper. Even though I sized up the bra fits snugly and it was hard to get the zipper lined up correctly so I could zip it. It would be rather fiddly if you’re in a hurry trying to dress for a workout.
The band feels on the verge of being too tight and it rolls on me. If I liked the bra I would consider exchanging for a 40 band.
The cups are too large and too small at the same time. There’s not enough room near the gore for my center full breasts and I get some uniboob there. The cup apex is taller and more to the outside than mine, resulting in a small amount of empty space near the strap.
The armholes are cut with barely any curve and the fabric cuts into my front armpits uncomfortably. This might be helped by a smaller cup volume but then I’d be more squished in the center front.
This bra retails for $45. High impact bras in this line go for $55. For another $10-20 you could get a Panache, Freya, or Elomi that’s much more comfortable and it’s easier to figure out your size.
