This bra has a fatal flaw. See that multi-colored trim that wraps the edges? I am convinced that little strip of material is a blend of steel wool, bee stings, and bad dating decisions. The bra is indeed “no-bounce” but only because movement of any kind is quickly discouraged by the sadistic trim that again, wraps the edges of the bra, guaranteeing multi-point skin contact. If a bra that raises welts is your thing, then look no further, this is the bra for you! If, on the other hand, you think the mark of an excellent bra is one that supports without constantly, and painfully, calling attention to itself, your quest continues. The one upside to this bra? It will re-introduce you to the full-body experience of gratitude when you take it off. Hope this helps.
This is my second sports bra from this company (FYI, their regular nonwired ones are very comfy too). I had the delight of getting to try one for free as part of the Vine programme and it’s SO good I had to buy another because it definitely is one of my comfiest undergarments that I always forget I’m wearing (and for big girls, we know that’s a hard thing to find).
I use it for not just exercise but for general use - I bought it two size down at the band so can have a slightly tighter back size for exercise as a deliberate measure for keeping the boulders bolstered down (if you’re a big girl, this actually does make a difference, it’ll dig in at any back fat, but will give less bounce at the front - on me it is tight but NOT uncomfortable enough to restrict movement or hurt) then use an elasticated bra extender for normal every day wear so it’s comfy (and with the extender it is VERY comfy - in fact, I literally can’t feel it).
It has a “modesty” patch at the collar section to hide your cleavage, which I love. I’m bigger busted and I honestly hate that most sports bras push the “girls” together and then UP so that everyone sees, but this bra allows for separation while giving you a bit of modesty so your bust isn’t on display - nice if your sports tops are low cut.
Washes very easy, dries quite fast. Doesn’t have a lot of stretch except at the straps, obviously (essential if you want good support and don’t want the band sliding). What I do love is that for a sports bra it doesn’t give you a weird shape. It doesn’t flatten your bust down or push them into one weird looking mound (like the over the head ones do), it doesn’t push them up to your chin so that it looks like you’re suffocating -it keeps them separate and breast-shaped (although the longer you wear and depending on how you’re moving, they will eventually together and give you cleavage but this usually happens with most standard bras anyway).
For some reason although I’m a G, in this particular bra I’m a DD (I haven’t been a DD since high school), can’t explain it as a DD isn’t the sister size for a G, but it fits superbly and my bazookas aren’t squished at all. You might need to look hard at measurements when it comes to sizing as you might find another size is actually your “sports bra” sister sizing. Worth a look.
This might be considered expensive for a sports bra but a good bra is an investment, especially a comfy one that you need to withstand impact. This isn’t the kind of bra you have for half the year, wear twice and then dump, this is a solid piece of foundation garmentry that should last you a few years (like my other has). It’s worth spending on merely because you get what you pay for sometimes and I know that from experience. A discount sports shop over the head one or cheap fashion shop zip up one won’t compare to this quality. Invest in your sports bras.
Definitely recommend it, especially to the larger busted lady who struggles finding that right sports bra that doesn’t hurt.
I'm a larger lady at a size 18, I found alot of the sports bras available didn't give me confidence of support, this does. A little more expensive but you get what you pay for! Good fit, good quality material, well made and great support. Already have the grey needed a white, picking another Glamorise product was a no brainer.
I am 57 with MS. Unable to control.body temp. This is the best bra I have had with this condition. It is cool, light weight and so comfortable. It's medium control so great for walking and office work. Absolutely love the camisole effect. Can unbutton blouses. Just ordered another one. A bit on large size but perfect for me. Hardly feel you are wearing it.
I love this sports bra: it's very comfortable, and it really supports the breasts and holds everything in when exercising (not an easy task when you're a 36F!) And it also looks nice! So a total winner. I will definitely be buying more.
