Why I recommend this bra
First of all, it is great to be able such a great variety in sizing when it comes to sports bra for plus-size wearers. I bet you’ve found so many sports bras you’ve absolutely loved, but they just weren’t available in your size. Even if they do offer bigger sizes, the fit just isn’t secure enough for busty women. We need all the support we could possibly get in a bra, and when it comes to a sports bra, the urge for support becomes even stronger.
You can’t just throw on any kind of bra and head out to your local gym; it just doesn’t work like that. Unfortunately, being busty isn’t particularly helpful when working out, and the girls tend to get in the way. Some bras can be too tight, and they can cause painful tightness, which is something you definitely want to stay away from.
Freya sports bra allows you to achieve absolute control and security in your bust area, without the fit being too tight and uncomfortable. It is specifically made to make the girls sit even through a grueling high-intensity workout session. You can jump and run all you want, without having the constant fear of your breasts falling out of your bra.
The security and the comfort combined together make this sports bra a perfect workout gear piece.
All about the bra
This Freya sports bra is a model specifically designed for busty athletes. This means that there isn’t an activity it can’t endure. It will definitely not let you down, regardless of the size of your bust. Unlike most of the sports bras out there, it includes encapsulating cups.
This kind of bra structure is a must for busty girls, since there’s no other way to keep the breasts posted with such high-impact activity. Besides acting as a shield for your boobs, these uniquely designed cups give an uplifted, rounded shape. Just because you’re working out, doesn’t mean your outfit doesn’t have to be cute and flattering. The sports bra helps you keep a feminine silhouette and sexy posture, even when you’re hyperventilating and fighting to finish that last set of squats.
The bra provides an absolute coverage, thanks to the full cup design. Even when you get sweaty, you don’t have to worry about anything showing through. Moreover, the inner slings empower the cups and add to the overall support.
How does the bra fit?
To get an objective picture about this bra, I had to test it with one of my DD clients. She’s quite an athletic busty girl who wears 32DD, and she enjoys high-intensity workouts, so I knew that she wouldn’t go easy on this bra. She was very excited to try out this sports bra, since the previous models were an utter disappointment. To this day, it is one of her absolute favorites. She loves the way it secures the bust, without compressing the breasts together.
I’ve noticed that this model runs true to size, but some of you may find that going a cup size may fit better. As long as the bra isn’t feeling too tight, you can choose a cup smaller to get the extra protection and security. However, I don’t find this fitting trick necessary.
Since it reduces the bounciness up to 97%, you’ll find that the fit doesn’t shift as you move. You’ll feel the same amount of support regardless of the intensity of your training. My clients have had only positive remarks regarding the fit of this Freya sports bra, which keeps the girls posted without adding the pressure.
Also, the straps have a cushion-like design which won’t dig into your skin and feel too tight. You’ll notice that the straps too remain in position, no matter how sweaty you get.
Is the bra comfortable?
One of the crucial factors in a sports bra is the fabric choice. If the material doesn’t allow your skin to breathe, the sports bra definitely won’t feel as comfortable, and you can expect an unpleasant surprise in form of redness or even a rash. This is why it is important to pay attention to the fabric type before deciding for a particular sports bra, especially if you have sensitive skin.
The mesh side panels on this model allow the skin to breathe, and they also promote ventilation. Moreover, the fine microfiber captures the moisture, leaving you with a dry, comfortable feeling. This means that the design of this bra meets this extremely important quality requirement.
What makes this sports bra particularly comfortable is the versatility of the straps. You can adjust them in accordance with your outfit, and your personal needs. The back straps easily convert to racer-back thanks to the J-hook.
One of the girls I’ve worked with confessed that she can’t get enough of this sports bra, since it is extremely comfortable and easy to pair with different workout outfits. Since she wears it every single day, I asked her about the quality of the bra after so many washing and drying sessions.
Even after constant wear, the bra hasn’t stretched out, or changed its shape in any way. According to her, it is as good as new! Therefore, it is certain that this bra can become your holy grail sports bra, given the comfort and the quality it offers.
How does the bra look?
Although there’s only one design choice available at the moment, I’m sure you won’t mind the lack of versatility when it comes to colors and patterns. The Cherry Glow design is stylish, sporty, and unique enough to be worn on its own. However, the sleek and smooth texture allows you to wear it underneath any kind of workout top, without it translating onto the surface.
It provides maximum coverage, while still adding a lifted, perky touch to the bust.
Where to wear this bra
No matter what kind of training session you’ve signed up for, you are showing up well-dressed and prepared if you go with this Freya sports bra. Under no circumstances will you experience any leaking or slipping. It is beautiful enough to be worn as a workout top by itself. However, you can definitely wear it underneath your workout gear.
I’m sure you wouldn’t mind experiencing a fit this comfortable on a daily basis. If you ever need a break from all the other daily bra models, you can definitely opt for this Freya sports bra. Its breathable design makes it a great choice for daily wear.
My bra review
If you want to be able to reach a certain goal in your fitness regimen, you need to arm yourself with patience, healthy habits, and good workout gear. Make sure you start from the basics, which is definitely giving your girls enough support and comfort. This is certainly one of the most trustworthy sports bras for busty girls you’ll ever come across.
