I must have looked a picture trying to get this on. It wasn’t the easiest thing to get into, so much so that I couldn’t bare the thought of taking it off straight away & left it on. That was a work out in itself. It’s slightly smaller than other bras in my size & I wasn’t overly keen on the racer back as it’s a bit strappey. I been able to I’d have took it off & sent it back. I would probably try a fuller back/zipped front one next time. I’m not kidding myself about using it for fitness purposes, i needed a sports bra for the cooling material, I have neuropathy & an overactive thyroid which is causing me to have tropical moments & I am uncomfortable in my normal bras. I didn’t feel this was that helpful but I didn’t get any irritation from the fabric which is a bonus....Oversharing is caring. May work for anyone going through the change as it’s sweat wicking.
FITTING.... I'm between a 36 and 38 so I got the 38 to be safe however it is on the tight side so I'm a little disappointed. The straps are a nightmare to get into place but once you do they stay in position. The bra fastening at the back however is absolutely impossible for me so I had to get my child to fasten it haha SUPPORT..... The cups are perfect, iv got very big boobs and jumping without a bar is unbearable but this does help a lot. Now my boobs do still bounce but the impact isn't bad the bra holds them well for good support so no pain. This is definitely not a sexy sports bra but let's remember it's a bra, it goes under a top and it does the job, holds those bad boys in place when you need it. I will be buying another one because they are decent.
Gutted when I realised (after I'd worn it for a run) that this sports bra is handwash only, so I can't just chuck it in the wash with all my other running gear. On the plus side, it fits really well, exact same bra size as I wear in M&S bras (I'm a 32E), which I was impressed with. Once it's on it's really comfortable and great support for running, however, it is uncomfortable to get into and out of, as it has to go over your head and it's a tight fit, my boobs get squished every time I have to wriggle into it. Definitely avoid if you have any shoulder or neck problems.
Fit was good and felt comfortable and supportive when running. However after about 45min to 1 hour of running it became painful and the underwire part rubbed a lot, leaving red marks on skin. The material and underwire could be better quality, but as expected for the price. So not recommended for extended wear when exercising heavily. But ok for short workouts and to wear when not exercising.
Nice material & design. Seems a bit on small side & does tend to squash boobs together more than other sports bras. Thought it would be ok so I’ve kept it but after wearing for Pilates class I’m thinking I shouldn’t have as really felt tight during class. (Incidentally, couldn’t order next size up as didn’t have that size available)
I can't lie it is a bugger to get on. Because the racer back doesn't undobyou have to be an extortionist to get it on. Honestly with my big bust i really struggled. Once it was on then had to get it off. I was very tempted to cut it off with the scissors.
