Why I recommend this bra
Working out requires a proper outfit before anything else. It is crucial for you to feel good in your own skin and in your outfit, to be able to complete the workout successfully. If the fit isn’t right, or there’s something itching or pinching you, you simply won’t be able to focus on giving it your all. This is a rule with outfits for other occasions, as well. However, all the uncomfortable details become even more annoying at the gym, since you’re already under pressure.
I remember the times I used to work out in my regular bra, since I was unable to find the right sports bra in my size. As much as I’ve tried to convince myself that it works, it was a complete disaster. Not only was the bra insufficiently supportive, but it was also too tight, and unable to let the skin ventilation process develop the way it should.
Chantelle sports bra brings together all the crucial factors when it comes to sports bra for busty girls. It isn’t only the quality of the material and the construction that matters. The cups need to be ready for the weight and the positioning of the breasts. Finally, the sports bra has to pass the impact test in order to be relied on. Chantelle sports bra has all these aspects covered, and on top of it all, it isn’t bad to look at, either.
All about the bra
This Chantelle sports bra will go perfectly with any kind of workout gear. It is an absolute must for active large-chested girls who appreciate the support and comfort in a sports bra. One of the most impressive characteristics of this sports bra model is that it promises to minimize the bounce effect significantly (up to 68%), regardless of the impact of your exercises. Since this is one of the main issues busty girls encounter while working out, it’s no surprise that so many women swear by this sports bra.
Another problem you may experience when working out is the thinness of the material. Certain sports bras tend to neglect this issue, in order to create a sports bra which allows the skin to breathe. However, your sports bra can’t be too thin, since you don’t want your boobs to show through. This is precisely why Chantelle sports bra contains no-show-through material, and full coverage cups.
How does the bra fit?
This sports bra can easily become your favorite and replace any previous bras you’ve been wearing to the gym. The reason behind its growing popularity lies in its versatile design. The full coverage cups have a seamless design which makes the sports bra pretty much invisible underneath the top. Since the cups include a foam underwire, you definitely won’t feel any tightness under the boobs, which can be the cause of discomfort with many other bra models.
What makes the fit steady and supportive are the fully adjustable straps. They provide enough support, while keeping the bust in place. There’s also a convenient moveable J-hook, which allows you to adjust the straps the way you find the most appropriate. The conventional straps can convert to a racer back, if the outfit calls for it.
This sports bra does wonders for busty girls, especially those wearing DD+ cup sizes. My 36DD client found this sports bra to be the only bra which actually fits, without slipping, moving, or smothering. She also had no issues with the underwire, so the fit was perfect. The cups definitely cover everything, while still keeping the silhouette feminine.
Another client of mine, wearing 30G, can’t imagine having to part ways with this Chantelle sports bra. Regardless of what her plan is for the day, she chooses to wear it anyway. Since the sports bra gives her the rounded, lifted, sexy look of the bust, she doesn’t limit it to workout gear. Also, she’s in love with the convertible straps, and the firmness of their positioning.
Is the bra comfortable?
A reliable sports bra has to be highly supportive above everything else. However, if you have to compromise the comfort to get the support, that isn’t a bra you should settle for. With Chantelle sports bra you’re definitely not making any compromises, since both the security and the comfort are there.
One of my clients who’s a professional athlete, and a fellow busty girl, wears this sports bra in size 32DD. I was very curious about her impression of this sports bra, since there’s no better person to test the amount of comfort in this sports bra. She claims that the bra is light as a feather, extremely gentle on the skin, and extremely comfortable, despite all the security factors it incorporates. The protection is there, but it doesn’t feel heavy or overwhelming in any way. Also, one of the factors important for the comfort a sports bra offers is the way it deals with moisture. This particular model keeps the skin dry and irritation-free, no matter how long and exhausting your workout sessions get.
The Chantelle sports bra is made of breathable stretch microfiber, which promotes the skin ventilation process and keeps the natural cycle going, while not allowing the moisture to remain on the skin. Not only does this feel nice, but it is also of extreme importance for your health.
How does the bra look?
This sports bra has full coverage, maximum control cups, which keep the breasts lifted and positioned to prevent the bounce effect. You can purchase it in 5 beautiful styles, each of which is beautiful enough to be worn as a workout top. The 5 color choices include black, grapefruit, grey, aqua, and iris. The encapsulated cups form a compressed environment for the boobs, making sure that there are no wardrobe malfunctions in the gym.
The wide bra straps can be converted in racer back, so you are free to customize the back if you’d like. A general impression about this sports bra is that it is a very classy and soft, yet sporty and modern piece.
Where to wear this bra
Since it is one of the best sports bras out there, it definitely belongs in your workout gear, no matter what kind of sports activity you decide to engage in. It doesn’t matter if you’re taking yoga with your friends for fun, or you’re a professional athlete running a marathon; the versatility of this sports bra will not let you down in either of the occasions.
On the other hand, just like one of my clients discovered, this bra is convenient and comfortable enough to be worn on a daily basis.
