As a marathon runner, I train 6 days a week so my sports bras have to stand up to a lot of wear. I'm small-chested, so it is hard to find a product that does not chafe underneath my breasts and along the sides. I've worn this bra for about a week of training and am happy to report that is provides both support and comfort without restricting movement. And the best part of all is no chafing! I'll be buying more of this style.
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! :)
Absoutely love this sports bra! I've tried other brands and found them very uncomfortable and tight around the shoulders, but no such complaints with this one :) I am a UK size 10 and the size small fits me perfectly, the material is soft and not at all irritating, and doesn't feel too hot and heavy either which is great when you're working up a sweat. It offers just the right amount of support for my workouts - I usually do resistance in the gym, yoga, or running - however if you have a bigger chest or do something a bit more bouncy you might want extra support (I'm a 32C usually). I initially bought this bra in the flash orange colour, really gorgeous, and have just bought another one in black. Great value for money as well. Would definitely recommend!
Cannot live without a sports bra, have had few so far this is very good - simple and comfortable does the job. have had others with twisted straps, all sorts of other bells and whistles but this one I like the most!!!
Everything about the setup of this bra is amazing. It starts with the adjustable width and Velcro adjustable straps (NO SLIP CLIPS!). Next, the material is super soft and absorbent so you don't feel that gross sweaty cling that other bras can give you. Last but not least is the support. Amazing and firm support that doesn't compromise comfort. It gives stability when running, jumping, yoga, etc.. but doesn't feeling like it's crushing your lungs. This bra is a dream for anything active. I'll be back to buy more in more colors!
Really great bra! works as a high support for smaller-built girls too. fits perfectly - tight but not constricting. Keeps you dry through solid workouts thanks to climacool. Comfy and flattering. washes and dries well, doesn't lose its shape or elasticity. The only way to improve would be to add in some slight padding, but it's not a biggie. Recommend :)
I am really pleased with this bra. Yes, it was a bit of an initial challenge to get it on, but I figured out the secret -- keep the back fastened on the first (widest measurement) and undo the Velcro shoulders for the first try on. Then adjust the shoulders and you're good to go. Very comfortable!
The support is better than I expected. It's a bit tight, though. Color-wise, I picked orange and it's brighter than on-screen. It's nice, though if you like orange, especially if you have olive or darker skin like me.
Nice looking sports bra. Got the orange in an XS and the colour is really nice and bright. The fit is a little loose for me not tight enough and not enough compression so it's a bra I only wear for light exercise but it's still a great bra that I'd definitely buy again
Really love the colour, it's much more vivid & prettier then the image shown for this bra on Adidas website. It's a great bra but not really for high intensity workouts/exercise as it doesn't have enough support & compression which is a shame as it's a nice bra. I found it not tight enough in the shoulders & also around the body so that's why it's not suitable for high intensity workouts but other then that it's a great bra for every day wear or low impact activities.
The write up implies that you could wear this for running, but I wouldn't be comfortable doing that (at least not without a proper sports bra or compression top over top). Great for cycling though and dries super quickly! Looks great, really comfortable.
Bought to go under a running vest. Usually I wear crop tops rather than sports bras, but this one offered no real support. Ended up having to wear another top underneath this one for running. On the plus side the orange is a nice shade and the material is lovely. Expect to wear a sports bra or another top underneath if doing any high impact exercising.
I tried this on in a store and the medium fit me perfectly, but I needed white and they didn't have it in my size, so I ordered it on line. The fit is acceptable, but a little tight, it cuts into my shoulders a bit.
I usually wear a 34 B and got a medium, a perfect fit. I don't like padding in my sports bras and tend to go for compression, so this is great if you're like me. Even on the hottest florida days or longest runs, this keeps me cool.
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!
Great material, very comfortable and provides sufficient support. I am a size 32C and ordered both Small and Medium and Medium was way too big but Small was perfect. I think this bra would not suit anyone with larger cup size than C as it would not provide enough support. I will definitely be ordering more colours.
I love how this bra is adjustable not just in the back but also in the straps. The moulded cups aren't too major that it feels like you're wearing a padded bra but it gives you a nice shape when other sports bras leave you looking a little flattened. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the fabric. While it is soft and comfortable on the skin, it didn't seem to wick away moisture as much as I would like.
This bra is very comfortable to move in. It fits a tiny bit loose and, for me, that makes for a more comfortable workout (I am mostly running and doing yoga). The cut for the arms is a bit wider than some so i am not getting the tightness or chafing that sometimes happens there for me. It's a great bra and I'm glad I purchased it!
I like how comfortable and soft the bra is, great support for power walks and cardio indoor exercises and I really love the adjustable straps. I didn't give it a 5 because if the straps get completely undone, it takes a bit of time to get them through the loops, but I would still highly recommend it. Besides, once you get a hold of it, you don't need to adjust the straps constantly.
I bought a Large, I am 34C it gave me great support, I could jump in it and the support felt as strong as my maximum support. Only thing is I wear a 1X or 2X in tops so it was a little tight to pass my hands and get in it but once I did it was great.
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.
The medium size fit was OK for 36C/D, perhaps a bit on the small side for cup size. Definitely not enough support for running or dancing, more suitable for cycling and low-impact exercise. Nice material and great colour.
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 :)
Tried this one on, it was a bit too large for starters, as I'm a size 18 I ordered larger size for chest area. It felts and looked like It cut around the armpits too low. It was flashing my side bit of my boobs !
