THIS HAS BECOME my go-to bra when I know my shirt’s staying on. It’s a proper bra rather than a crop-top, is lightweight, extremely comfortable and has excellent support. I especially like the shaped, padded shoulder straps which were comfortable under rucksack straps and never chafed or pinched. The cups are seamless, with static, venting mesh fabric around the cup sides and base and at the rear fastening. A wide (3cm) elastic band is soft-faced against the ribcage.

As shown in the picture, straps can be attached crossed at the back or regular, but I didn’t have enough length left in the strap adjustment to try them crossed (I tested a 36A, on maximum adjustment at rear fastening and shoulders). The fabric wicked, breathed and dried rapidly; I’d buy another.
