To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Very nice design, love the straps. I bit big for me (got the L and my regular bra size is 36C). It gives support but I wouldn’t say it’s a high impact bra, more like a moderate. Material is nice, and it is well made. Gloria
The price is great, and it fits appropriately. The padding was wrinkled, but it is not needed. It was easily pulled out, and did not affect the fit. The style appears to be meant for someone younger, and I do feel the fit is meant for someone who is smaller.
Very good bra but I wouldn’t call it high impact for larger breasts anyway. It’s great for workouts but not quite enough for me for running. I’m 34 C and got the medium. Small would’ve provided more support but may cut off my breathing!
It fits well and keeps my breasts properly supported for my vigorous workouts. I prefer the sportsbra I have that allows a bit of distinction - instead of uniboob. So its not a bra I would wear for anything but a workout.
I ordered a medium and it fits, but not snug. So if you're torn between sizes or if you'll be doing lots of movement and want a snugger fit, then I suggest getting a smaller size. I do like the feel of the material.
I always find sports bras difficult to size because in some brands I wear a medium and others, a large even though I remain a 36B. I decided to try this Starter sports bra in a large, and it's somewhat bigger than the other larges (in other brands) I own. That said, it still fits, although I'm definitely at the bottom of the size. I probably could also fit in the medium.
The slip-on style with its elastic straps makes it a little more difficult than some to get on, only because you have to put your head in the right place before pulling it on. I like that the straps are wide since they distribute the pressure points better across my shoulders and back, where they cross. I'm not a fan of the continuous logo all along the straps, but at least they aren't visible except when the shoulder of my top slips. The removable pads are thin. Because the cups are large with complete coverage, the pads don't fit as well as they should inside the bra.
This bra is comfortable with good support. I'd probably get better support if I had gotten a medium, but it's still good enough for a couple of hours of doubles tennis.
This is a sporty and comfortable sports bra. My model for this review is 5'10" and 140lbs.
Likes: - Soft fabric. Not as breathable as some mesh tops but the soft poly/spandex is very comfortable and still wicks moisture. - Looks sporty. The wide elastic bands with star logos give a playful, sporty look. - Comfortable and true to size. Usually wear a medium and this fits well and is comfortable. Comfort rating 8 out of 10. - Pads are easy to remove.
Dislikes: - The straps are comfortable, but not as soft as the rest of the bra, so you'll feel them a bit after a long workout. - The included pads. They are nice and thin, but this means they get a very slight wrinkle after washing. If you have smaller boobs they may look strange when they first come out of the wash.
Overall a very comfy and sporty bra. Consider taking out the pads when you wash it.
The criss-cross straps really add not only to the look of the bra but also the function. The criss-cross straps adds to the comfort and support of the bra. On the flip side, the criss-cross design does make it a little harder to get the bra on while dressing. It take a minute to figure out what goes where.
I don’t do high impact exercises but walk and do stretching exercises and this bra is the perfect support for those activities.
This is a good basic sports bra. It is a pull on style with criss cross straps that have a lot of stretch. The fabric is soft and comfortable but still with enough support for low to medium impact workouts. There are removable pads to offer a bit of extra shaping and modesty. I like how this looks and feels on - it is comfortable enough to wear even when not working out. If between sizes consider ordering down to get maximum support during workouts.
