Love this product! As size 8 and 32C I purchased size XS and it was a perfect fit. Really flattering and great support, would definitely reccomend. Works perfectly with 'basic Strappy tank top' as both have the same back design.
I find the sizing of this sports bra very odd... I ordered an XS and found that while it fit well once I got it on, actually putting it over my head/shoulders was a bit of a struggle (it stretches very little). Getting it off after working out was even more difficult. But I don't feel like I needed a small, and in fact wonder if it would still be a problem because as mentioned, this bra fit fine once I got it over my shoulders (which are not especially wide, mind you). So while the overall quality of the product seems quite good, I have some reservations about this product due to the difficulty of putting it on/taking it off...
I love all the supernova sports bras. But the Boston Marathan (only one in hot pink) fits much tighter than the regular supernovas. I confirmed this with a rep after receiving. I am a medium, and certain a large will be too big. Make more colors in the original supernova Please!
I never thought in a million years I'd purchase a sports bra for $40. I'm not top heavy so the ones I usually buy on clearance at Walmart or Target suits me just fine. I decided to pick one of these up after feeling it in the store and liking the feel. I wore the sports bra today for the first time. I did a hour cardio today and although I sweated, I noticed my body was cool therefore I wasn't dripping as I should have been. Although being active in the gym, wanting to see your hard work by way of sweat, it was great not to feel the sweat running down my body as usual. I also felt as if I had extra energy since my body remained so cool. Ladies, skip a mani/pedi or 2 to get this sports bra and thank me later
Great high impact support. Finally sewn in cup protection that stays put in the wash! Well done adidas! Comfortable straps with no band irritation. Nice cut neckline and recommend small size for B cup with wide back and shoulders.
I bought this sports bra because it was the closest one to the Supernova climacool version I bought a few years ago. It is the absolute best sports bra I've ever owned. I wear an XL and it fit great, covered the cleavage appropriately and while I wouldn't say it "looked" just like a regular bra, it is the closest I've ever seen to NOT being a uniboob bra. Lol. This bra is almost identical, except it is a little lower cut and shows more cleavage than I care to have in my sports bra. I will definitely wear and it and it is a comfortable bra, but the older version is my preferred sports bra. Hope they make an adjustment on the next version. We larger women should at least have one made for us.
First off, I'm VERY picky with sports bras simply because of the way my breasts naturally are. I need the bra to fit PERFECTLY or else I'm going with two bras. I wore 2 bras for working out for years because when I tried to wear a simpler compression bra by itself with no cup shapes, I was left with that nightmarish "uniboob" look and feel (most ladies know exactly what I'm talking about.) I'm a full C, sometimes D depending on the bra, so the 2-bra thing was something I've been wanting to rid myself of for the longest time. I work at an Adidas store and found this funky-looking bra and decided to try it on. I will say that the bra is quite daunting at first when you are attempting to just try it on. The way the straps cross over will likely have you saying "huh?" out loud. But I was able to eventually figure it out (after a few minutes of sweating) and, over a year later, I can say this is probably the best bra purchase I've ever made. I actually ended up buying three of them, and none of them show any signs of wear to this day. I know the bra offers fantastic support because I don't think about it when I'm exercising. I work out several times a week. The bra is pretty much true to your normal bra size, and I love how the sizes are based on cup/band sizes (32C, 36DD) as opposed to small/medium/large so that you can make sure that you get a bra that actually FITS. Honestly, the only bad part about this bra IMO is the first few times putting it on because you don't know what you're doing and it just feels like your suffocating even with the right bra size on. But, as a previous reviewer mentioned, the tightness you should be experiencing at first is a good thing. (If the bra's too tight, loosen the straps/clasps a bit, but you shouldn't have to do too much adjusting or else you likely have the wrong bra size.) Let me save you the stress of figuring out how to put this thing on: 1. Unhook the bra. 2. Loosen the straps to at least half the length. This will make the bra easier to pull over your head/arms/torso and keep you from damaging the bra's threading by over-stretching. 3. Pull the bra over your head so that the entire bra is below your bust, near your belly button. Turn the bra around so that the unhooked section of the bra is over your belly button. Make sure the hook sections are not flipped around or else the bra won't fit right. 4. Tighten the straps to your desired tightness and hook the bra together. You obviously won't know your go-to measurement at first, but you will eventually. 5. Twist the bra around your body and fit the cups over your bosom. Put your arms through the arm openings and pull the straps up to your shoulders. Just get past learning how to put it on and I believe you'll really love the bra. Worth your money! :)
This is my new favorite bra to wear for work outs. When I first got it, the band was very tight, uncomfortable tight. It took a handful of times wearing it for the elastic to relax. It is super comfortable now. It also helped to make it easier to put on. It's still a bit of a struggle, but it's not too bad. It's very supportive and it looks really good on too. It is so difficult to find a good sports bra like this; I highly recommend it!
This bra is perfect for me. I want racerback with hook-and-eye closure (I hate peeling sweaty sports bras off my body), which is a hard combination to find. Moreover, I feel well supported. I don't have a big chest- I'm a 32C, but as a nursing mom, my boobs are super sensitive. I hope Adidas will make this bra in more colors!
Ordered this, anxiously waited for it to come, and quickly became frustrated upon opening it. It looks like it would be incredibly comfortable and dependable in a high activity level, but I could not get it on no matter how much I twisted and bent and stretched. I could either get the straps on correctly OR get the back clasp closed but not both. I will, unfortunately, be returning it and wait for them to make a more user-friendly bra for women my size.
I love the care and detail put into this bra like the ridges along the band and the soft wicking material along the neckline, but man if this thing ain't a doozy to get on! I'm a big girl and I unfortunately don't have the super power of being able to fasten my bra behind my back. I couldn't get this things on no matter what kind of MacGuyver ways I tried. I knew if I tried to slip it on still clasped, I'd stretch it out and ruin it. I'm sending this back, I'll have to find some better plus-sized sports bras.
Amazing bra. I do kickboxing and this bra didn't disappoint me in support and keep everything in place. Very easy to put on and super comfortable to wear while I worked out. I ended up getting 2 more :)
I was excited to get this bra in the mail. Unfortunately, it took me half an hour to get on and then I could not reach the clasps in the back to close them. This bra left me totally frustrated and i returned it for 2 supra nova bras back to "old school" for mre:)
I found the bra hard to get on as the clasp in the back is hard to do by yourself once the bra is on. I kept the clasp secured & put the bra on that way. Was harder to adjust, but once the straps were loosened a little, the bra was a great fit.
I work in the fitness industry and have always struggled to find a sports bra that does what it's supposed to. My chest is sort of heavy for my fit/thin frame, and nothing keeps the ladies in place (without the dreaded uniboob look). This bra comes *close* to being my favorite, thus far. I am 5'8" 130 lbs. I typically wear a 32C and that is what I bought. It runs true to size, I would say. Perhaps ever-so-slighty "small" if you don't like your bras to be compression-like tight, as I do, especially for running. But If you have a toned back, you should be fine with your normal size. If you're weary of bra bulge/back fat... or if your back is not your favorite feature, maybe size up on the band. As someone recommended to me long ago, ALWAYS BUY YOUR BRAS SO THEY FIT TIGHTLY ON THE LAST (3rd) SET OF HOOKS. Elastic is known to stretch out over time, therefore... when the bra *especially a sports bra* begins to "break-in" and stretch out with wear, movement, washing, drying, abrasion, and well... generally bending and breathing.. it will continue to fit as it should, even if this means you need to move to the 2nd or 1st hooks to keep it fitting snug to your ribcage. But... to each their own. Anyway, this bra fits that way which is AWESOME! If you're buying your bras how you should be and wearing the "right" size to begin with (as many women do not) it will be tight at first... but wear it around and it will conform to your body with time, I promise. In the long (distance) run, it's worth it! My only complaint is that I would prefer the front to not have a princess seam (like the same style but in the D/DD sizes, for example) This would allow the bra to be more versatile and lay better (flatter) under tight fitness apparel. Also it would give your bust a slightly more "rounded" look. But all and all, I can't complain. I may try to order the a 32 or 34 in the D cup style and see if this fits me as well... sometimes I can go either way (32/34/C/D) and each size gives me a different "look". The D cup style appears to offer a little more fabric and coverage, and would be better for layering vs. wearing alone. This 32 C gives me some cleavage, which I personally like. The padding is minimal, more like a lining cup, actually, which is nice... because I have piercings that elicit attention sometimes.. which I don't always like to advertise to the lovely people on the streets of NY. This nicely keeps things, covered and concealed without adding bulk to my bust. Another nice feature is the glue-dot like grips on the inside of the elastic band (the part that touches your skin). I'm not sure they really "do anything" so to speak... but I'm hoping once I start sweating they will reduce chafing and keep the bra in place. Hope this helps.
I wear a 34D or 32DD in other bras...imagine my surprise when after trying on multiple sizes I found the best fit in this bra to be a 36B! In addition to being supportive this bra is very good looking. In fact, I've started wearing it in the pool for swimming lessons with my kids. There is no cleavage/spillage/risk of showing too much - yet, I still look supported and sporty. I also wear this bra when exercising...I am a personal trainer and fitness instructor. My workouts are intense and high impact...this bra can withstand it all. PLEASE make it in more colors!!
