This non-wired style is made from 100% cotton and is a really comfortable style that gives plenty of coverage. It gives lighter support that is great for low impact activities and could also be an option for after surgery.
You might find it hard to believe, but this is perfect for heavy gardening. I wear this when working my allotment. My boobs don’t pop over the top when bending to dig and I can put these in the machine to wash (tied up in a pillowcase) then dry quick sticks. Job done!
Didn’t buy this bra from Bravissimo like I normally would but thought I would review it as it was advertised as the best sports bra for high impact sports. I CrossFit and run so need something to hold the puppies down and this is definitely not the bra for this. Ok for squatting but that’s about all. I will stick with the shock absorber, which whilst difficult to get into, it is one of the best for high impact sports
I am a 36JJ and bought this sports bra but it really does not support in any shape or form. It is ok over the top of another sports bra. I use it as a sleep bra now.
These bras never fit to size so that doesnt bother me, but they can be a challenge to get on and whilst the old one had the added velcro and wider back strap you could kind of 'hook' your thumb in it to get the hooks done up at the back (my tummy makes turning them round a right pain in the behind)... add to that the fact that the straps have become so slippy that they are on the longest setting within 2 jumps! never happened with the old model and im sure it will be fine once I've got the sewing machine out and made them short permanently ;)
I bought this bra in a 30JJ (I don't know why that size option isn't available?), with the intent of it replacing my current two bra method for reducing movement. It was okay, but I will still need to wear another sports bra on top of it before being able to get through the warm up of my dance lessons - which are not high impact, I'd say medium at a push. This bra goes from my belly button up to about 2 inches below my clavicle. This may be due to my short torso, but it takes up a lot of my body. It is also so high necked that it looks ridiculous under most of my work out clothes. I know its not a fashion show, but I don't want to draw extra attention to my chest, which I feel this does do.
I am a 30K in all other bras and I can just barely fasten the first set of hooks in a 32K in this bra.. I would need a 34 really which is a bit ridiculous. Otherwise it is comfortable and covers all of my bust,no flab under the armpits which is great! The straps are wide and comfortable
I brought this bra for gym/running/high impact activities. Although it is super comfortable, and fits well there is to much jiggle. I have kept it for a lounge around the house bra, but have had to buy a different type for sports. The neckline is very high restricting you to wearing very high necked tops so to not have your bra on show.
Very comfortable bra, and love the style and shape. It's fabulous for yoga and walking activities but it is definitely not impact free and does not reduce bounce during a workout. I feel that the name and description of the bra are misleading. I did keep the bra for the comfort/style factor but cannot wear it for the purpose it was bought.
