SELAINE AT Less Bounce thought this would be overkill for my 36A chest but in fact it worked well. The lightweight, shiny polyester fabric looked unlikely to wick but it did the job: I never felt clammy and it dried quickly. The cup fabric (coloured) is static, with stretch in the white contrast (between breasts and across the back).

An elasticated band (2.5cm) directly under the breasts was soft, stretchy and comfortable around my ribcage. Getting into it was straightforward, and it was easy to connect the rear fastener. Support was excellent; it is higher and tighter at the neck and armpits than my usual bras. Definitely one for the big girls, but also a good choice for high-impact sports for smaller women.
