THIS WAS A slightly thicker and more substantial bra than others tested; I like Smartwool clothing so it was interesting to test this new underwear range. Despite testing a 36D (I’m usually a 32F) the fit was quite good. Adjustable straps allow a choice between a regular or crossed back. I found it extremely comfortable: the wool wasn’t itchy, and straps are wide and contoured which keep the bra where it should be with nothing digging in.

The bra was effective at stopping movement and bounce regardless of whether the straps were in the regular or crossed position. There was still some movement but the bra was comfortable to wear and would be good for low- to medium-impact activity. I really liked the look of this bra, and its simple design.
