    36G

    Didn't fit

    Overview: complete failure for me
    This is the worst sports bra I've tried to date (I've tried: Bravissimo Inspire, Elomi Energise, Freya Active, Panache sports bra, and Shock Absorber). Either it runs very large and I was wearing completely the wrong size, or it has no support whatsoever.

    Band: true to size, but awkward
    I ordered a 36G, which is the larger of the two band sizes I routinely wear. I clipped it on the second hook of four rows, which is probably better than wearing it on the outermost hook, which would cause problems with fastening the velcro hook cover (it only seems to completely attach on the ... innermost sets of hooks; what's the point of that?).

    Straps: half adjustable, don't go short enough
    The straps were shortened as much as I could shorten them, which was clearly not enough. I'm not someone who routinely has problems with half adjustable straps, so this generally means the straps are long.

    Coverage: excellent
    The bra comes up quite high on the chest and completely covers my collarbone. It's the first sports bra I've encountered which completely encapsulates my breast tissue.

    Fit: strange, and not in a good way
    The bra has some unusual fit issues. At the bottom of the cups there is a sort of "shelf" which extends for a few centimeters before my breast spills over it and down. I've tried to take a picture of this. At a guess, it isn't made for softer breasts. Another strange thing is that the top part of the bra is quite loose, instead of being pressed firmly against the skin. I can easily stick a finger in the armhole and pull the bra out somewhat. Needless to say, this makes the high coverage useless; it's little more than a tank top on the upper part of my chest. Actually, a tight tank top might offer more compression. Mind you, this is supposed to be a compression bra not an encapsulation bra: it doesn't have wires. I've included a picture of this as well.

    Bounce test: ouch!
    I could tell that I was bouncing a lot, even when I took up the slack of the straps with my hands. But I couldn't tell just how bad it was until I looked at the video. Yikes! I've said in the past that with some other bras I might as well not be wearing them, but I have to retract those comments to say that some other bras were no better than wearing a normal bra not intended for sports. This bra was worse than anything I have ever seen. I would get less bounce wearing an everyday bra. I may as well have been nude, except that I think my breasts would have had a more flattering shape as they flew up to my mouth had I been naked. At the bottom of the bounce they were saggy teardrops, in mid-bounce they were flattened east-west pancakes, and then at the top of the bounce they were torpedos aimed at my chin.

    • prettyNpetite - My failures continue. I am really curious about how you'll get on with the Enell, which it sounded like you were ready to order.

    • 1

      Thanks for pinging me! Seems like we're gonna be sports bra buddies haha. Yeah, I'll do my best to order it sometime soon, problem is that I'm supposed to install this so called Bank ID on my computer to be able to order stuff online (I turned 18 in december, I've tried numerous times to install this shit but it won't work according to the instructions of my bank's website on how to do it) and it won't work. I've got the money to order right now, but technicalities are making things difficult -_- I'll try to swing by my bank's office tomorrow if I have time for it, I'm going to Norway for the weekend. I'm really hoping it'll work, I'll make sure to notify you when I've ordered it and when I've received it :)

      Yikes... That explanation sounded really sucky. I've had a hunch the Royce Impact is nothing more than a "try" of a sports bra. It seems like it's just jersey material, a thick jersey that you'll find in a t-shirt. I think that the only way to make it "work" is to down-size in the cups. I dunno, maybe your size was off but I highly doubt it. Bras and body image's bounce clip of it made me cringe: http://brasandbodyimage.wordpress.com/2013/03/22/my-hunt-for-a-sports-bra/

    • Her bounce test looks a bit like my Panache one, which I think is not so bad. My bounce test is hilarious.

    • Wow, yeah, it really was! I understood your explanation on how the bounce looked like now. I don't really think her bounce test result would cut it for me, sure, it restricts a fair amount, but I'm looking for the "no inch" bra. I'm hoping Enell will be it! :D

    • The flat pancake bit could certainly have been better explained with a picture, but I couldn't get a decent quality still from the video.

      I agree that what she got wouldn't be good enough for me for high impact. It's about what I get with both Shock Absorber and Panache, which I use for medium impact sports: bike riding and the cross trainer. I wouldn't want to use something like that for high impact like running.

      Hi again, Aaa! :) I just wanted to let you know that I just ordered the Enell sports bra! :) Now the waiting begins... I haven't written anything on my blog for a good while (haven't really felt like it and I've had no big news) but I sure will when it arrives! :) I'm not really sure when to expect the arrival to Sweden (ordered from www.lessbounce.com which is located in the UK as far as I know) because it can vary so much. Sometimes it has only taken a mere 2 days from the UK, sometimes 14 days excluding the weekends. I'll get back to you.

      Looking forward to it!

    Royce Impact Free S826 30K White
    This is my 3rd Impact Free wireless bra, this one in White. As this is a wireless, I did my best at measuring the cup parts, but know they are not an exact perfect measurement.

    The band measured larger than the Black ones, with 23” to a max of 28”. This still makes this bra more of a 28 band, but excellent for those of us who need a 26-28 band, especially in a cup over a J which is otherwise not existent in a sports bra. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops as well, with Velcro that covers ... the hooks so it can be worn without a shirt.

    The cups area is really more of a singular section without really much separation, but in order to enter this bra to 100% I did my best to fill in the measurements, haha. The “Cup” measured roughly 10” and stretched to around 13” and is about 6” wide but since there are no wires these are really rough figures.

    3 of the 4 Royce bras I purchased this time came without the standard plastic outer bag and without tags. Only one came with a tag, which was a bit disappointing, but at a whopping price of under $7 ea, I won’t complain. While all 4 bras were supposed to be new, I cannot say with all confidence that what I received was the case. Both White bras were dirty, as if they’d been stored on the bottom of the warehouse floor. Again, disappointing, but not a big deal as they are washable.

    I have yet to wear this one, and will try to remember to update with photos when I do, but wouldn’t anticipate much difference between the fit from the first one.

    Royce Impact Free S826 30K Black
    This is my second purchase of the Impact Free in Black. As this is a wireless, I did my best at measuring the cup parts, but know they are not an exact perfect measurement.

    The band measured similar to the first one, with 22” to a max of 27.5”. This obviously makes this bra not very good as a 30 band, but excellent for those of us who need a 26-28 band. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops as well, with Velcro that covers the hooks so it can be worn without a shirt.

    The cups area is really more ... of a singular section without really much separation, but in order to enter this bra to 100% I did my best to fill in the measurements, haha. The “Cup” measured roughly 10” and stretched to around 12.25” and is about 6” wide but since there are no wires these are really rough figures.

    This was the only bra from this order that arrived with the tag and the outer plastic bag indicating it was a new bra.

    I have yet to wear this one, and will try to remember to update with photos when I do, but wouldn’t anticipate much difference between the fit from the first one.

    Royce Impact Free S826 30K

    The Royce Impact Free High Impact Sports bra is a wireless unpadded sports bra. It comes in White, Black, and Grey. This review is for the Black version, size 30K. I ordered this on eBay for only $7.01 with free shipping, so it was a really cheap gamble.

    The band is very firm which is great. It measures 22.25” flat from end to end and stretches to a max of 27.5” making it perfect for me but not at all practical for a true 30 band (or 28 band for that matter!) The band is 2” wide and what I’d call a comfort band as ... it is thick and does not dig into the skin. It has 3 sets of hooks and 4 rows of eye loops that are covered by a Velcro strap.

    The cups area is really more of a singular section without really much separation, but in order to enter this bra to 100% I did my best to fill in the measurements, haha. The “Cup” measured roughly 10” and stretched to around 12” and is about 6.5” wide but since there are no wires these are really rough figures.

    The wing is 7” tall from the bottom of the band or 5” from the top of it. It has nice wide comfort straps at around 1.1” at the shoulder. The height at the “gore” is 10” from the bottom of the band, and the cup height from the top of the band is 11” so it does keep the breasts secure & in place without risk of a flop out. ;-)

    As most of the reviews I’d read about this bra in the past were not glowing, I had avoided it at its original price tag of $50. Yet for $7, I felt it was worth the risk, and I am glad I did. My idea was to use it as an escape from wired bras, more of a supportive lounge bra than for workouts, as I am not one to exercise regularly.

    This bra isn’t meant to separate the breasts, just keep them secure; though I wouldn’t wear it to run any marathons it will serve its purpose for low impact aerobics such as Yoga/Walking/Housework or lounging around. It definitely would not do well for High Impact as it is marketed as.

    As for fit, the band is great and firm, wide for comfort so no digging in, and actually measures shorter than all my Ewa 60(28) bands so provides more support. The cups, as stated, do not separate but do fit perfectly full without feeling crushed. Again, they feel supported yet comfortable.

    Overall, I am extremely pleased with the bra and ordered 2 more as well as 2 of the wireless Sadie comfort bras which were also under $7 from the same vendor on eBay, Worsleywear.

    The bra is very firm in the band and fits well in the cups. The velcro strap is a bit odd, but you get used to it. I would have liked the part where the back of the strap meets the band to be wider and curve off futher into the band instead of so far out as I get awkward fat pushed out when usually it's encompassed in the band. Being a 28J there is only so much bounce you can reduce, i mean come on, im not expecting a miracle but for light exercise and jogging it's a good bra. since it comes up quite high, i feel that all my breast tissue has been contained and compressed. This is usually a problem since i have full on top breasts. The only thing i would like changed is for it to be made of a thicker or stronger or stiffer material for some extra shape and support

    This is a high quality bra. It prevents my boobs from jumping around while doing sports (I use it to run, for light weight-lifting and dancing). The shape it gives it's more than okay for a sports bra, although my boobs look flat and fuller on the sides when I wear it. The lack of underwires make it really comfortable without losing support thanks to the build and structure of the bra.
    It is quite snug on the band, though. I've always had to use it on the loosest hook because if not it's so tight it doesn't allow me to breathe well. It may have to do with ... the fact that it is a sports bra and the manufacturers wanted everything to stay in its place. They have definitely achieved that but I wouldn't mind a bit more space in the band.
    Another problem would be the straps. There's not enough room for adjustments and the plastic thing is never in place.
    Overall, it's a good sports bra. It does its job, which is to keep things in place.
