4.2 out of 5 starsfrom a total of 145 reviewsRead all reviews


Super-supportive and comfortable, the Inspire bra is a great option both in and out of the gym. The underwires mean that it offers a rounded shape and a separated look - no mono-boob here! The cups are made from a double layer of fabric with all the seams trapped inside, so it feels smooth next to your skin.

Comfy and Supportive!

When I first tried this bra on I was skeptical because it was so comfy and I couldn't understand how it would keep my boobs in place. But a few jumps soon proved me wrong. They hardly moved! I bought the same size as my everyday bras which suited fine, but now that I've got the support I need, I'm hoping I may need to go down a size soon.

Desperately wish that this came in a light colour to wear under white tops. I am well endowed with small shoulders and all other bras are too wide on the shoulders.

Great Sports Bra!

Review published on:

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

What a great sports bra. I have been wearing Shock Absorbers now for probably the past 15 years, and had resigned myself to the fact that I would only ever be able to wear them. I tired some wired sports bras but they were all padded - which I hate. Having read the reviews I thought I would give the Inspire a go. It took a while to get the size right, so I was very glad I went in store as my usual 30H wouldn't go anywhere near me and I ended up with a 32H, via a couple of other sizes. It fits beautifully, looks great and gives a lovely shape underneath gym tops, someone in my class asked if I had lost weight (I haven't), but I am less 'flattened in' you can see more of my waist. I was very pleased! It seems to be very well made, the shoulder straps have a lovely curve to them and a teeny weeny bit of padding making it super comfy when it's on. I would just recommend you try and go in store, or be prepared to have a few different sizes sent before you find the right one for you - but don't give up, it's worth it, and I will definitely be buying more in different colours.

Please, more sizes!

When it comes to sports bras, shopping here still feels like walking into a regular-size lingerie store. There's just nothing in my size. I've asked for fitting advice via e-mail a few times before, and was always advised to purchase a 30HH bra instead of my usual 28J (which apparently just doesn't exist in sports bras). Since I'm quite desperate, I've tried ordering the bras (this one being the last), but the moment I put them on I can tell that it's not my size. Especially with sports bras, the poor fit just makes them useless. I still have to run with my arms against my chest. I keep buying them every once in a while, since I don't really have a choice, but it's so depressing. I keep waiting for new sizes to show up and they never do. Please Bravissimo, can we have sports bras in your usual variety of sizes?

cup seams are puckered

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I thought I finally found the right fit in a sports bra. When I put my shirt over it, you could see the seams in the cups. If the seams were smooth, I could overlook that but they were puckered and made my shirt bumpy looking. Very unattractive. I'm returning this item.

Not right shape for me

Review published on:

Customer rating:2 out of 5 stars

I ordered this in my usual 30J, as well as 30HH and 30JJ. The shape was just all wrong on me. I need more depth at the wire, less closed at the top, more projection, and more narrow wires. There was wrinkling in the bottom of the cup on all 3 sizes, and overspill at the top in all 3 sizes. The wires were also outrageously wide, reaching around to almost the start of my shoulder blades. This might work for someone with full on bottom boobs, with short roots, that are more shallow and wide than projected out. I emailed back and forth with Bravissimo for 3 weeks to no avail with this. :( Just my size and shape doesn't match up with what's on the market, I guess. Despite the horrible fit on me, I could tell that on the right person, the support would be AMAZING. The shape was similar to Freya's active underwire bra, but the support IMO was better on this one. (Hard to say for sure because the fit on both was abysmal on me.) FYI, I found the band to run about 1/2-1 band size tight. I'm a 28 in some brands and a 30 in others, and the 28 would have been way too tight in this one. If you're between band sizes sometimes, I'd sister size up, or size up in the band and keep the cup the same, as I think the cups run a bit small too.

Almost perfect

Customer rating:3 out of 5 stars

I had a fitting in the Leicester shop for a new sport bra to replace my old Freya underwired version. Unfortunately Bravissimo are reducing the number of bras available in my size 28H and there was only one sports bra available in my size, which did not fit right. I tried this bra in 30G which offered the best fit but the back is still large and must be worn on the middle hook to get decent support. The style of the bra is great and I like that it is high rise so it keeps everything in place. Please Bravissimo! Don't give up on those of us with 28 backs!

Inspire sports bra

Customer rating:5 out of 5 stars

This is truly the most fantastic bra I have ever worn. I’ve been wearing this bra since you brought it onto the range and I was happy I could buy it in white so could wear it under light coloured clothes as it is my everyday bra. I’m just waiting and hoping you will bring it back in white or nude as well as the fantastic colours you are offering now.
