A top that works as hard as you – room for your boobs and it won’t ride up as you move! The panelling is designed to accentuate your waist, and the straps are wide enough to keep your sports bra under wraps. You’ll impress from every angle with the cross back detail on this style!

Bust seams much too high!

Review published on:

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

Nice style, material, and colour (my sports bra is a royal blue mix) A bit small so I went up from 14RS to 16RS - but I still found the curving of the bust seams (at the top) were way too high. Not for me I guess, but I'm disappointed!

Helping me survive hot yoga lessons

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I bought this vest as my gym offers hot yoga lessons. I love the overall fit, material and colour of the vest, and it coordinates well with my sports bra (Shock Absorber in blue/grey). My yoga teachers all commented how pretty it looks, and it's helping me survive hot yoga temperatures better. Washes well. The only down side is when doing yoga inversions, I wish it had a higher neckline. For 95% of the class it's totally fine, but when I have to do cat-cow for example, my cleavage is very much visible! I have an all-female yoga class, so it's kind of OK for now, but I might try a different style sports vest/sports bra combination next time I visit the shop, and try out some poses in the changing room!

Blue fits wider hips

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I ordered one of each vest available and the Athena in Blue Marl was the only one that would stay/fall back down around my hips after having had my arms up. The multi print is tighter on the hips, so I recommend those with wider hips to go for the blue. I opted for a larger size to ensure it would not fit too tightly while exercising.

Lovely item, great set, too short for yoga

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

Bought the set which was great including the bra. The top is slim fitting - but my problem was that I wanted it for yoga which means I want a longer length or postures get uncomfortable/revealing. Had to return.

Great sports top

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

Gorgeous colour, great fabric and fabulous, fashionable criss-cross at the back. Received lots of compliments from fellow harriers. It fits over bust and isn’t too short so I don’t have to keep pulling it down when running. I’m going to buy the jacket to match.

Not usual fabric quality

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

Having previously purchased and constantly wearing the Electra vest I was really disappointed with the quality of the fabric. The armholes are also very tight not allowing for comfortable movement. Bravissimo please look at the cut and quality as there is very little choice in sportswear for curvier women.

Cute top

Review published on:

Customer rating:4 out of 5 stars

I really like this top. I love the color and the open back design is super cute. I’d like it if it were cut slightly higher as my sports bra (I wear 30J) shows a little if the top gets pulled down, and I’d also prefer it a little longer. It’s ok with high waist yoga pants but otherwise I’m worried it’ll ride up and show my stomach.
