|Strap width||2.9 |
This is my all-time favorite sports bra for my regular running and yoga. The encapsulation and moulded form keep everything in place, yet don't smush me so I can't breath. I also love the underwires to prevent a mono-boob effect, and the wires are so well enclosed in fabric that I don't notice they are there (so no rubbing or poking at all!)
The shape is a very lovely, upright, rounded shape, slightly broad, and so "not sports bra-like" I've worn it with regular tank tops and shirts and been very comfortable. The center area comes up higher than my regular balconette and half-cup bras, so you wouldn't ... wear this with anything lower cut, but otherwise, it's quite pleasant.
I like the little hook on the strap behind your neck, which hooks to the other strap to make it a convertible racer back style. I use this style when I'm running, but leave the straps straight for yoga since it's not high-impact. I find it very easy to clip and unclip, and also to get in and out of this bra before an after activity.
The photos of this don't do it justice, as it's really more flattering in real life, with the center of the chest seams wrapping around in a flattering cut. The straps also are thick to be comfortable while working out, but not thicker than my wide-trapped tank tops so still attractive and not like a full vest.
I own two of these so I can cycle them between workouts, and I know I'm supposed to handwash everything but lack of time has me tossing these sports bras in to a lingerie bag and in to my washing machine for a thorough cleaning. I let them air dry afterwards, and they have held up beautifully the last few months I've had them. (Haven't needed a new set yet.)

I'm not sure this bra fits me or not.
It does not fit perfectly
I can wear it though.
I've worn this for about 2 weeks.
Now I know this one doesn't work for me because of its shape.
36ff would be better for my frame.
Someone has very wide frame and extremely narrow set at the same time just like me would prefer going up the band, down the cup
and then reducing the band. (It's just my opinion.)

This bra lifts me way up high, which feels amazing! No bounce with this bra. Band runs a little small, which is great for me considering how tight I wear my bras. I really want this in the grey/blue color combo.

Wire under left armpit tends to poke me in both of these bras I have.

The cups run about one size too large, and it is a MUST to get the right band size, otherwise the center gore will poke out and you'll look like you've got something coming out of the center of your chest under your shirt.

You forget you're wearing it. This is the most supportive bra I've found yet, but makes me look GIANORMOUS, and I think I could go up a cup or even a band? I couldn't really get the racer back option to work. Maybe I am too tall? I have the straps loosened all the way. It still is probably not enough support for high-impact like running or jumping rope, but it's fine for biking, hiking, gardening, and probably weight training.
I have slight armpit spillage. I'm afraid if I go up to a 36 it will ride up. I really do mean to get some extenders sometime.

Bought for my sister as a present, she's usually a 34DDD/34F, was too big for her. Selling on here.

I'll rewrite this review in the future, as I haven't tested it yet in a "sports" situation.
I bought this one after trying unsuccessfully to buy a decent Freya Underwired Sports bra (poor fit, I felt like I had my breasts up my chin, it was too small at the top of the cup and way too big at the bottom).
I think the straps don't adjust short enough, but since it can be worn as a racerback, this isn't much of a problem. But the support (reminder: not in a real sport situation) is incredible. I jumped around and, even though my breasts moved around a bit, they ... didn't hurt AT ALL. In sports bra in the past, I've either felt supported by compression (no movement, but minimal breathing allowed) or not supported at all. So I was surprised to feel supported with my breasts moving! And I have no small breasts, and they hurt after half an hour if I don't wear a bra walking around my appartment.
The colour (grey) is cute, original and yet discreet.
Now I have to use it properly!
