Best Running Bra review

Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra (high support)

It is the first job for the female runners to find a set of sports bras that does the job and fits just right can be even more complicated than finding that magical pair of shoes. We’re here to help those who feel a hard job to make the process smoother. We has spent much of this spring and summer testing approximately 50 bras from the best brands. Each met a different set of criteria so we put them on seven testers are avid runners and seeing as they range from cup sizes AA to D, they all have a completely different set of needs.

Which support level works best for you?

Best Running Bra review

Low: It is best for women who wear a AA to B cup. The padding that comes with high support bras often feels unnecessary and bulky for runners who don’t need it. If the only purpose it serves is to get drenched and heavy with sweat, cut it out! Low support bras are often the best for feeling completely ventilated out on the run. They are also great for low-impact activities like yoga, hiking or low-key toning sessions.


Best Running Bra reviewMedium: Runners who wear a B or C or a smaller D cup may very well find themselves in this camp. A medium support bra is the kind of like the Goldilocks for runners that are neither chesty nor small-breasted– not too much support, not too little. It should fit just right!



Adidas Energy Bra D

High: For those who wear cup sizes C and D typically find themselves in this category. You need support and you’re going to notice when adequate support isn’t there. No use in starting into a run if you’re unsure if there’s going to be wobble and bounce. Women who fit in this category might complain about breast pain when running. That can be solved if the bust is locked down.

Extra high: For women who wear a D and beyond.

The testers:

Caela: “Looks matter to me when it comes to sports bras. I want one that is cute enough to want to wear shirtless, regardless of whether or not I actually plan to. I look for a material that can repel odour (at least for a little bit) as I’m known to wear things numerous time before washing. As a student, price point also matters. I’m unlikely to spend over $50.00. I have difficulty doing up bras that adjust behind the back, so I tend to prefer ones that are over-the-head. I don’t like removable inserts because I lose them in the wash. I would put myself in the medium support camp. I like to feel like nothing is going to be bouncing around, but not as though everything is locked into place.”

Sinead: “I’ve always been a small person but I have a full bust. I wear a 32 band so my issue is finding a sports bra that’s small enough to fit my narrow frame without being too small in the body. When it fits right on the band, it’s often tight everywhere else. I’m the runner who makes a beeline for bras labelled “high support,” and if it’s not adjustable in the band and shoulders, that’s often a deal breaker. Bonus features in a bra are fun prints/ colour and straps that criss-cross because I know they won’t slip off. Straps that fall off under layers of clothing is a major annoyance.”

Dianne: “I’ve got a small build, so support isn’t my number one concern. I look for a bra that repels sweat. Since I’m training for longer distances, I don’t want a bra that feels damp and icky on long runs. I value quality and am willing to spend more if I think a bra fits right and will last for years.”

Kelly: “I like to feel confident and a little feminine. I train with mostly guys, so I don’t want to draw too much attention, but I also don’t want to feel like a 12-year-old boy. I don’t want my sports bra to look like a delicate piece of lingerie. If it falls out of my gym bag, I don’t want the fella walking behind me to blush. I prefer a sports bra that looks just as ‘sporty’ as the rest of my running gear. The inside should be coloured, no white. Cup padding is crucial for modesty.”

Anne: “I guess what it comes down to for me is a sports bra has to have back hooks and adjustable straps, built in cups, soft breathable fabric, full coverage, with colours and patterns that make it look more like a running bra top than just a bra. No white please! I also like to buy on the small side due to stretch from wash and wear.”

Suzanne: “I run for pleasure, fitness and stress-relief. I have a competitive side and enjoy training for 5K races. They’re short and fast! For that, I need a good sports bra that is comfortable, long-lasting, high quality and stylish. When I look for a sports bra, I need for it to have a good shape with cups to give me additional coverage (especially in the cold). I want a bra that’s going to help me avoid chafing.”

Nikki:  “I am a triathlete, so I use my bras for both cycling and running–often in the same workout. I run on the road and trails, and have a small bust size. I have had a few moments of bigger chestiness thanks to pregnancies and breast feeding, so support is critical to prevent the dreaded sag!”

Low Support

Best Running Bra review

New Balance Tenderly Obsessive

The Tenderly Obsessive bra has sculpted cups to take down the jiggle. The straps are thin to minimize the feeling of bulk under clothing. Thin straps can be a deal breaker for runners who find that they dig but others like the minimal feeling. Overall, it feels slick giving runners support without having padding or buckles to get in the way or weigh it down. It comes in many solid colours making it perfect to match with those printed tops or running shorts.

Kelly says: Worked flawlessly in a downpour without becoming too heavy, stretching, or revealing too much.

Best Running Bra review

New Balance Shapely Shaper

For runners who have problems finding sports bras small enough, this could be the solution. The Shapely Shaper will hug curves and not sag. Those who choose this one will love it for it’s cute and athletic look. Looking for a bra to wear on its own? This one begs to be shown off. The fabric is durable and will last long however those who look for silky soft may not like the feel.

Caela says: It seems durable and like it would hold up well through lots of washing.

Zoot Performance Tri Bra 


Keyhole cut outs on a racer back bra seems to be a popular trend in running gear. Not only does it look amazing, it’s practical for brands to cut out extra unneeded fabric. By doing this, Zoot ensures optimal ventilation and if that’s not enough, they’ve included mesh panels throughout the bra whenever possible while still considering modesty. The band of this bra is adjustable (the straps are not) so a runner who needs that little extra wiggle room can fix it to fit perfectly. It’s called the Tri Bra likely because when athletes get wet, they need something quick to dry. If that’s a requirement, this is the bra for you.

Moving Comfort Hot Shot Best Running Bra review



Hot Shot is a pretty appropriate name for this bra. Gone are the days when “sports bra” was synonymous with “frumpy” or “ugly.” As for the frustrating and famous uni-boob problem, the Hot Shot puts that in the part too. It comes in several colours so if this bra works for you, stock up. (No one will notice… ) Now when it comes to function, wide straps make this baby stand out. No gauging and extra stability. Plus, the straps will sit flat during the workout, no rolling or annoying movement here.

Caela says: Cute turquoise and black colour combo is wear without a shirt worthy. I actually kept this one on under a regular shirt after working out because I liked it so much!

MEC Y Not Bra 


Best Running Bra review


A bra that suits a runner’s low impact needs is an essential piece of gear that should be in every woman’s drawer. Even if you’re not typically a low impact kinda girl, it’s not always necessary to be completed buckled into place– think toning work, strength sessions, less vigorous cross-training or a comfy option to change into post-race. The MEC Y Not bra is ULTRA soft on the skin, basic and cute! Cups are removable so runners can adjust it based on their needs (or use the cup slots as pockets. It would look great on it’s own or under a favourite training top for style points.


Moving Comfort Fiona 

Moving Comfort Fiona

This is a going to keep fit women feeling trendy during the easy run. Moving Comfort has aimed to give women a bra that is extremely comfortable for lighter exercise. This one will easily become a favourite in that regard. Both the strap and back are adjustable to runners can ensure a custom fit. The shaped cups are lightweight and removable so runners can add extra ventilation if needed.

Anne says: This bra is very comfortable but does not have built in cups therefore it’s less supportive. I would wear this for shorter runs or  low impact sports.


Saucony Sweet EliteSaucony Sweet Elite



Why add heavy padding and air flow restricting fabric when extra support isn’t needed? This is a great choice for runners who wear a smaller cup size. With its seamless design and mesh fabric, this one is the definition of lightweight and chafe-free.



Moving Comfort Just Right Racer (low impact)

Moving Comfort Just Right Racer (low impact) 


This bra is seamless and soft, a great option for the woman who can go for a lower support option on a run. Moving Comfort has taken the classic sports bra cut but updated it with lightweight fabric, removable cups and added compression. This would be especially ideal for easy runs or strength workouts done outside on the most humid of summer days. Those who suffer from chafing should give this one a try!

Sinead says: When I need a low impact bra, I’ll reach for this one. It hugs my curves perfectly and the material is so light and soft.

The North Face Bounce Be Gone

The North Face Bounce Be Gone 

Now here’s a classic good ol’ sports bra. Why change the model when it already works? The North Face has taken a timeless racer back bra and added a double layer of sweat-wicking fabric to give a little more support (and insulation in wintertime!) while still feeling comfortable on the skin. The fabric will fit snug so going up a size is an option. This bra isn’t the best when it comes to ventilation so runners should consider whether or not that is needed.

Suzanne says: It doesn’t include cups but the material is thick so it feels like you have more coverage and minimal chafing.

Kelly says: There was no adjustability, but the fit was good, straps were wide and comfortable and the bra stayed put.

Reebok Crossfit Proud Chest Bra 

Reebok Crossfit Proud Chest Bra

Racer backs are always a comfortable way to go. This one comes with cups but those can be removed to add ventilation or to take down the supportReebok Crossfit Proud Chest Bra

for women who don’t find it necessary. Removable cups also gives bras a longer life when runners remove them before washing. The band is ribbed making it more comfortable than generic bands. As far as aesthetics go, this moss-green style is a more neutral tone in the sea of pink and neon athletic clothes which is great for women who are not crazy about bright sportswear. The material of this bra is ultra soft meaning runners are less liekly to chafe. The trade-off is that it may not last as long as others in the drawer.

Caela says: It’s got a sporty look and the removable cups are a nice touch for versatility in fit.
Suzanne says: I really liked the ribbed bottom strap, it was comfortable and a little breathable where other bras feel too tight.

Reebok Hero Push Up 

This is a sports bra that comes with push up padding. That may not be first on the checklist for many runners but it’s bound to get style points from women who want the extra lift. A mesh racer back with a keyhole cutout maximizes breathability for sweaty, humid runs. The solid purple is a hue that is easy to match and should stay in style. The band is not adjustable and may be better suited for women who wear a 34 band and above.

Asics Versatility Seamless Bra

Asics Versatility Seamless Bra

Ahhh a seamless bra. Prone to chafing? Give this one a try. It’s so silky and airy, runners will barely notice it’s on! A firm medium support bra, the Versatility Seamless Bra is also quite meshy with maximum breathability. Need a bra for those sweaty, humid days? Asics has designed one. It’s not adjustable but is reversible. Two styles in one!

Dianne says: I was pleasantly impressed with the support. It’s definitely not high support, but it’s a firm low or medium support, well suited to small and medium sizes.

Medium Support

Zoot Moonlight Bra (low to medium support) 


Thick straps, racer back, well ventilated, a strong band and a pocket in the front– the Moonlight Bra has got it all. It will dry quickly and give curves a firm hug when running. In fact its ability to not retain moisture sets it apart from most other bras in this regard. It’s almost bathing suit-like. It doesn’t have any padding nor does it have separate cups however with the right fit, runners will feel firmly in place rather than wobbly. This one comes in vibrant colours perfect to spice up any outfit.

Sinead says: It’s got pockets so I’m on board. I also loved how quick it is to dry. I wore it at the beach and left it on all day.

Zoot Performance Tri Cami Bra (low to medium support)


Petite and active ladies should really give Zoot and try. You want a bra that makes you feel snug as a bug? Well you got it. For a lower impact bra, this still gives solid support. As for the material, Zoot uses only the lightest, quick-dry fabrics. No bulky or zaggy materials that pool sweat. The colours are fun and solid printed meaning it will look hot without stealing the show from the craziest patterned sportswear.

Caela says: This bra should be sized carefully to ensure it is not too small. However, it is fantastic to find something that isn’t too roomy or too padded.

Reebok One Series Run Bra (low to medium support)


Reebok One Series Run Bra (low to medium support)

When it comes to looks, this one has it all. Reebok has used a flattering series of colours on this running bra. Its strongest feature is the ventilation. The racer back, straps and part of the front are all made of mesh while the rest of it has smooth, soft fabric. Running in it will feel light and airy. The cups offer the coverage and support that those looking for medium support need and the band has adjustable hooks to open it up or make it smaller.

Suzanne says: It was a great fit for me and great support. It was a cool design and great colour choice. I even wore this casually with a tank when I wasn’t running!

Sinead says: I would definitely choose this to wear this on a hot day without a shirt.

Shock Absorber Active Flexi Wire 

Shock Absorber Active Flexi Wire


It looks more like a regular bra than most so many women are going to prefer to wear it under a shirt. When it comes to wearing a sports bra with an under wire, most runners feel strongly for or against it. Those not keen on the wire will steer towards a more traditional sports bra but those who want a bra with this design, may have a hard time finding one. Enter the Active Flexi Wire. Shock Absorber designs for specific cup sizes rather than small, medium, large– a rarity in the world of sports bras. This one will fit like a regular bra made of softer material and the wide, padded straps ensure a more comfortable fit for vigorous activity.

Shock Absorber Active Zipped Plunge 


Shock Absorber Active Zipped Plunge

Let’s face it, many women go shopping for sports bras with style top on their list. For those women, this one stands out. With a bold colour and a zipper right up the middle, this is certainly a hot pick. Runners are sure to be noticed in this eye-catching number. While the zipper may at first seem like an accident waiting to happen, this one has hooks that do up behind the zipper. In case it splits, you’ve got backup! It’s worth noting that Shock Absorber manages to design bras that are supportive without having excess padding to drag runners down. This bra is an example of this. It fits snug like a good sports bra should without being sweat-soaked by the end.

Suzanne says: This is a fun style and colour scheme. The zipper also makes it easy to get on and off.

Sinead says: I was nervous that the zipper would burst open mid-run but the hooks ensure that won’t happen. I was impressed when I noticed this detail.

New Balance Fabulous Framer

New Balance Fabulous Framer

The Fabulous Framer really is fabulous with its adjustable straps and band and a comfy racer back fit. Women who are tough on running clothes could use this is the drawer– it’s a good quality bra that will stand up to the washing machine. The hidden pocket between the cups is ideal for storing small items (like keys!). It’s a small detail that really makes this bra shine. Another thing to note is that New Balance makes this one with eco-friendly fabric.

Caela says: The eco-friendly fabric really impressed me and I loved the secret pocket.

Moving Comfort Rebound Racer 

Moving Comfort Rebound Racer



Soft fabrics are a must for many runners. Discomfort comes with the sport but it’s not OK when our gear is the cause! The Rebound Racer is, well, good enough to race in. Say goodbye to chafe or skin irritation. It’s soft and smooth feeling and holds everything firm because that’s its job. The back strap is also adjustable as are the shoulder straps. The straps are actually adjustable from the front so if things need to be tighter in the middle or a workout, runners can make this adjustment swiftly! This bra has trusty sewn-in cups as opposed to flimsy inserts which don’t always do much. This one comes in a few colours, all of them meet our aesthetic standards too!

Caela says: Adjustable over-the-shoulder straps are a feature which I’ve never seen before. Super handy! Yellowish-grey print is wear-without-a-shirt worthy too!

Oakley Criss-Cross Power Bra

Oakley Criss-Cross Power Bra 

This bra is proof that Oakley knows style. It will likely be one of the most attractive bras in the drawer this summer. For runners looking for a medium support bra, this is a good choice. Perhaps the best feature other than style, is the smoothness of the bra– no irritating clasps, sleek seams and wide straps means there is nothing to dig into skin. Kiss red marks and chafing goodbye!

Sinead says: When I’m attending a class and want to look good, this bra is a winner.

Caela says: I love the dark floral print. It’s shaped without removable cups, so it gets lots of points for that from me. 



Moving Comfort Vixen Moving Comfort Vixen



Many runners find that the racer back works best so why change it? This bra is an updated version of the classic running bra that we have counted on for years. Moving Comfort knows women and knows their needs so they’ve added in a seam-free contoured cup increasing the stability factor in this bra while reducing chances of chafe. The neckline gives enough coverage but still have a V plunge which many while find gives a flattering look.

The North Face Stow-n-Go

The North Face Stow-n-Go

When designers started adding pockets to the basic summer dress, women praised them. When brands like The
North Face add pockets to the sports bra, they score major point among female runners. The Stow-n-Go is pocketed meaning that runners can pack it with gels, keys, money or even ice during a long, hot race. This bra is stylish in a sport way, snug fitting and not a chafe disaster in the making.

Nikki says: This is the best bra for me and my favorite. This is the bra for all of those ladies who want a good looking, supportive bra with minimal coverage and… pockets!

Adidas Supernova Energy Graphic Bra

Adidas Supernova Energy Graphic Bra

This bra stands out in the sea of bras on the rack. It looks trendy and is certainly eye-catching which is a major selling point for a lot of runners. When it comes to support, this style has padded cups to keep things feeling secure. Because of the padding though, it’s best worn during a cooler time of year to keep things feeling dry. Non-adjustable straps makes it a better choice for taller or broad-shouldered runners. Runners who like switching things up to look trendy on the run are sure to reach for this.

Dianne says: It’s somewhat reminiscent in appearance of a push up bra without the wiring, which make is quite appealing.

Kelly says: I’d say this one is fashion over function, but not bad for cooler days.

Nikki says: This is the most stylish of my fuller support bras.

Reebok Crossfit High Impact Bra

Reebok Crossfit High Impact Bra

The straps on this bra are made from a sleek and softer material than most others. That means they shouldn’t gauge or cause red marks. The bands and straps are both adjustable however those who wear a lower band size may look to go a size smaller. It says high impact in the name, although women who spend a lot of time running might think it fits more into the medium camp. This bra is ventilated throughout with removable cups for super hot days or more low impact activities.

Sinead says: Women with a fuller shape will appreciate the full coverage. This bra is roomy and won’t make you feel squished.



Saucony Athlete Avenger

This medium support bra is sturdy and won’t leave painful red marks. It’s comfortable and hugs curves while

running. Runners will appreciate the mesh back which won’t let sweat build up especially when worn under heavy clothing or backpacks. The inner ribbing on the band will keep this bar more securely in place. Like its cousin bra, the Curve Crusader, it has the nice keyhole detail at the back.


Saucony Curve Crusader 


Saucony Curve Crusader

This medium support bra will be the first choice in the gear drawer. Its bright colour will add a pop to any running outfit and is a great pick for wearing on its own. The little keyhole cutout in the back is a nice detail that cuts out unneeded fabric. The bra has thicker straps to eliminate pressure points and painful red marks. It fits true to its sizing and has an adjustable back. All in all, this one is a stable bra choice.

Caela says: This bra fits the bill in all three sports bra priority categories for me: comfort, stability and style.

High Support

2XU Medium Impact Support Bra (medium to high support)

2XU Medium Impact Support Bra (medium to high support)

The support is solid so that runners won’t have to focus on movement when running. 2XU’s claim to fame is designing cream-of-the-crop compression gear so their sports bras are ones you can trust. The material is breathable yet it still has an insulating factor making this a good option when weather starts to get chillier. Women who are narrower in the rib cage will love it. For petite girls who often struggle finding bras that fit snug enough, this one should stay in place. When it comes to quality, 2XU is on point. This one has a long life and won’t lose shape from washing.

Suzanne says: It washes up well. The cups stay firm even after a few washes. 

Moving Comfort Urban X (High Support)
Moving Comfort Urban X (High Support)
This is a great option for runners looking for high support. This model is adjustable in the band and straps— great for the runner who is in between sizes. Criss-cross straps ensure no slippage while running. Count on it to eliminate bounce. The Urban X is a sturdy bra with cups that are anything but flimsy and the mesh panel between cups will reduce potential for sweat buildup. The bold green stripes make it a fun option to wear by itself or to spice up a bland outfit. This one is great for runners who wear a C or D cup or larger. If you want a stable fit, this is a solid contender.

Sinead says: I hate leaving the house and feeling uncomfortable bounce first thing. This bra ensures that won’t happen. I often reach for it first.

Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra (high support) 

Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra (high support)


Shock Absorber has created an extra high support bra. It’s not heavy on the padding, extremely ventilated and does up at the mid and upper back distributing the weight in two places. While it’s extra high support, the design is sleek rather than frumpy. In fact, it’s sporty and good looking enough to wear on its own in summer. This is perfect for the runner who struggles finding enough support in a bra. And the material feels like silk!

Sinead says: In over a decade of trying new sports bras, this is hands-down one of the best ones I’ve ever owned.

Anne says: By far the best! It’s so comfortable, I hardly felt like I was wearing a bra.

Reebok RCF Skinny 

Comfortable full support bras can be hard to find but Reebok has designed one that will satisfy. This sports bra has a clasp like a regular bra and criss-cross straps so everything will stay perfectly secure doing your workout. Thicker straps are a factor that many women look for and this model has that. Women who opt for medium coverage in sports bras will like this one.

Nikki says: A little tricky to get on but once in place, it keeps the girls in perfect position.

New Balance Shockingly Unshocking (medium to high support)


New Balance Shockingly Unshocking (medium to high support)

Women with a fuller shape will love this bra as it offers support and full coverage without the bulky padding that can make for sweaty runs. It’s adjustable both in the straps and band and that’s enough to seal the deal for many runners. New Balance has included soft grips on the band– a nice touch to ward off chafing. Its solid colour makes it easy to match with lots of tops in the drawer.

Sinead says: I love that this bra gives me full coverage while still looking stylish. The strap adjustments are Velcro but they don’t come undone.


Moving Comfort Maia (high support)

Moving Comfort Maia (high support)


Women in need of a practical high support bra that still scores in the looks department should try the Maia. It gives full coverage without feeling extra sweaty. That’s because it’s built with sturdy cups encompassed by a thin outer layer. Because the outside layer is thin, this bra is breathable and moisture-wicking. The straps are anything but flimsy. Not only are they wide, but they are also cushioned in the most high-pressure spots. The solid band is made partially of mesh to keep runners cool as a cucumber! All in all, a smart choice for those who wear a D or DD.


Adidas Energy Bra


Adidas Maximum Support Energy Bra 


Support cups, back clasp, adjustable straps– this bra has the best features of a regular bra while performing like a reliable high impact sports bra. This bra is adjustable in the straps and band as well as sweat-wicking. Those two factors alone make it a go-to style for those seeking high support. This model has a sleek fit and lightweight material making it suitable especially for humid days.

Adidas designed it with a bit of a plunge meaning it won’t be visible over exercise tops. Adidas deserves props for modifying the design for the larger sizes showing that they understand that women who wear larger cup sizes simply need more support. With sizes D and beyond, Adidas has added coverage, improved support in the cups and added in an underwire with spongy padding so runners won’t feel feel irritated by it. Well done.

Sinead says: I’ve worn this again and again and never felt discomfort. I’d recommend wearing this for your toughest race.


Shock Absorber Ultimate Gym Bra


Shock Absorber Ultimate Gym Bra

As one of our testers says, this is like a luxury sports bra. It’s sharp and trendy looking while checking off all the boxes when it comes to quality. Listen to music when running?

It’s got an overall sporty look too meaning it will have you standing out on the track.

Kelly says: Wearing it makes me feel like a pro. This bra is a clear winner.

Moving Comfort Juno

With more than adequate support and a fun look, what else do you really need? The Juno will easily become one of your favourites. Go ahead, put lots of mileage on it, it can take it.

Anne says: This is one of my favourites. It has great built in cups and works quite well as a running top. I did find the material a little stiff under the arms.

2XU Contour Support Bra

2XU Contour Support Bra 

Simply put, the Contour Support Bra is a no-nonsense quality sports bra. This bra flatters curves like a regular bra does but eliminates bounce like a sports bra should. This one is suitable for women of all sizes and can be converted into a racer back by clipping straps together with a j-hook– perfect for the athlete with narrow shoulders. This bra is so comfortable and definitely offers support that women can depend on. Mesh in the back and between cups increase ventilation to keep runners dry. Runners who are in between sizes should opt to go for the smaller size.

Sinead says: It will keep you locked down. This one has so much extra detailing. The quality definitely shows through.

Top 6 Pink Bras For Cute Girl


I’m sort of notorious for my love of pretty pink things, so when Cora suggested I blog about my favorite pink bras, I was super excited!Candy floss, kitten noses, and summer sunsets… some of the best parts of life are pink. This requires me to be much more selective in the bras that I do purchase. And I don’t get the support I want in pretty bralettes like Sugar Lace Lingerie‘s aptly-named Sweet Pink Sugar bralette. But magic happens at all bra sizes! Here are my favorite pink things in my lingerie drawer.


The Scallop Bralette was the first item I designed & produced for she and reverie, so it holds a special place in my heart. So sweet and simple, I love the way the tiny bows look peeking out from a sheer dress or sleeveless top. It’s 100% organic cotton so it’s super soft, and it’s made in NYC’s garment district so I feel a little extra pride for my city whenever I put it on. It has very little support, but the simple, seamless design and opaque jersey knit fabric means I can wear it over a nude balconette bra and it still looks super cute.

The Simone Perele Wish in blush is so much prettier in person than in photos! The quality is stunning. The lace is so unique, the jacquard satin panels feel so luxurious, and for such a delicate-looking piece, the lift is great. I think this is a wonderful piece to wear under an outfit for a job interview or important meeting, since it’s super pretty and a great confidence-booster, but doesn’t have big 3D decorations that would stick out under an opaque top. But I work in lingerie, so maybe my opinion is a bit skewed.


This Narue bra was my first purchase at Kaori’s Closet Tokyo, the Japanese-owned lingerie boutique that used to be in SoHo and has since gone to retail heaven. This bra was my gateway drug to 4 long years of spending way way too much money on Narue bras and eventually filling up my stamp card to get a lifetime discount–right before the store closed for good. It’s very well-worn and way too big for me now, but the details are just so cute that I can’t stand to part with it. Look at the pleated satin! The bow-shaped lace! The actual bow! It’s so over-the-top. This bra isn’t available anymore, but if you’re into this super romantic Japanese push-up style, you can find more Narue bras on Shirohato and, if you live in Japan, Narue’s web shop.


Ohh, Fifi… I spent all my money at her Rue de Grenelle store last summer. Although it lacks the projection I really want for my larger cup size, the Fifi Chachnil Bonjour Paris bra is one of the most beautifully-made bras I have. I love the rosy shade of pink stretch silk, the perfect scallop of the elastic, and the little pink bow on the center gore… it all represents the classic French femininity of the Fifi Chachnil brand so well, and was the perfect Parisian souvenir (although my bank account disagreed!).


This isn’t really a bra, but it’s one of my favorite things in my lingerie chest, and I try to spread the Creepyyeha gospel as frequently as possible. I. LOVE. This. Harness. Since her customer base tends to skew young and DIY-focused, Creepyyeha is constantly knocked off and called “overpriced,” but as someone who studied apparel design and has worked in the fashion and lingerie industries for years, I would say her work is probably worth twice as much. The construction on this piece is impeccable and the materials are great. It’s entirely hand-tooled to my body measurements, and she even hand-stitched a little satin bow on the back for me. Creepyyeha made this harness to my specifications based on her Safe Heart Harness that has been discontinued, but she still takes custom orders. And yes, the padlock came with a working key!


I’m not always super impressed with Agent Provocateur. Their price point is high but the quality isn’t really that impressive, and I feel like a lot of their styles have this outdated, over-the-top sexiness about them. However, their Bethany bra is something special. Is it bra pink? Unless you count the light peachy illusion mesh as pink… no, not really. But it feels pink. Not only is the lace design perfectly symmetrical on both sides, but the mesh is so sheer that it practically disappears. The result is ethereal appliquéd petals that look like they simply floated from the heavens to sit delicately on your decolletage. Yes, it’s that magical. Add in the elastic straps that give the illusion of 3 teeny-tiny layers of ruffles, and you have a fairytale of a bra. If this bra had a soul, it would be pink.At a size 36DD, it’s technically the sister size to my sister size, so it doesn’t have the most beautiful support, but that’s not really the point– it’s gorgeous.

Top 9 Bra Brands You Should Know

Bra Brands

In many cases, the best bra brands really are only a click away.When talking about finding your new favorite undergarment, you need to get stuck scouring the racks at your local department store, trying to find something in your size while avoiding an awkward fitting with a pushy salesperson.

Bras were always something that I had to try on in person. The fit always seemed too unpredictable, after all, no matter how many times I was measured and found to be the same size.

Despite there may be one or two known bra giants in this world, I am sured that one brand cannot be all things to all people. I wanted to highlight some of the other bra brands that have earned their own customer loyalties for taking a unique approach to the world of brassieres.

Here are the lists.

1. Chromat

If you recognize the cage structure of the bra above, it’s likely that you’ve seen one of the many knock-offs that this underwire bralette from Chromat arguably inspired. With a background in architecture and urban design, Chromat’s designer Becca McCharen makes these structural masterpieces by hand. Seen on the likes of Nicki Minaj, Madonna, and famously featured in Beyoncé’s 2014 VMA performance, Chromat is an absolute force. The brand is also beloved for its New York Fashion Week shows, at which models of a range of ethnicities, sizes, and gender identities all have a place.

2. Nubian Skin

Nubian Skin is a must-know bra brand because it offers nude and skin tone bras for women of color. It is such a genius idea that it earned the brand’s creator, Ade Hassan, the title of Fashion Entrepreneur Of The Year at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards in 2015. The brand offers a handy skin tone guide based on a number of known foundation shades, which is also incredibly genius. Nubian Skin’s bras are available up to a size 40DD.

3. Curvy Kate

Bra Brands

Curvy Kate is a UK-based lingerie company that launched in 2009. It is known for its extensive size range, which goes from a D to a K cup. These bras come in a range of styles, such as the Balcony Princess Bra and the Luxe Multiway/Strapless Bra.

Curvy Kate stands out because of its customer focus, though. When I went on the website, I wasn’t surprised to see that its most recent blog post highlighted nine customers who killed it in 2015 (customers of all sizes and abilities). Curvy Kate is also known for its Star In A Bra Competition and model search, which is open to all sizes, heights, and frames and allows customers to see how their products will fit on a range of bodies.

4. The Little Bra Company

As someone who can’t actually fit into the products of almost every plus size bra company, I was sure glad to discover The Little Bra Company. The struggle to find cute bras really affects both ends of the size spectrum, from petite to plus. The Little Bra Company caters specifically to petite-busted babes and specializes in band and cup sizes that are often difficult to find, including 28 to 38A, 28 to 36B, and 28 to 34C. The brand’s styles feature sexy lace and embellishments that are a far cry from the usual petite options out there that look like training bras.

5. Neon Moon

Bra Brands

Neon Moon is a British brand that got its start in 2015 thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign. This bra brand stands out for its feminist mission, which is against sweatshops, objectification, Photoshop, and sexualization, according to its website. The concept is both bold and brilliant.

Whether it’s combating online fat shamers or creating the #IAmNeonMoon campaign, this is one brand making a big impact in spreading body positivity and acceptance. And, of course, its soft cup bras are incredibly cute.

6. Curvy Couture Intimates

As the name suggests, Curvy Couture Intimates is a plus size lingerie brand. It makes bras in C to H cups and in a range of comfy and sexy styles. I’m still obsessing over the Love Affair Bra, but I think what I love most about Curvy Couture is its social media engagement within the plus size fashion community.

I first found Curvy Couture through Instagram, where the brand gives a great behind-the-scenes look of its fashion shows and pop-up shops. I’ve even seen it post open model calls through social media platforms. A brand that is engaged with its customers — especially in the plus size community — is definitely something to take note of.

7. Dottie’s Delights

Bra Brands

Dottie’s Delights is definitely a go-to for vintage-inspired, high-end bras. Founded in 2010, designer Stephanie Kuhr was one of six residents in the Chicago Fashion Incubator sponsored by Macy’s and the City Of Chicago, according to the brand’s website. Dottie’s Delights has completed two collections every year since.

With an aesthetic range that encompasses turn of the century styles to those of the 1960s, Dottie’s Delights have been seen on Violet Chachki, Sabina Kelley, and Holly Madison, and are favorites for lovers of burlesque. The brand’s current size range for bras goes up to an F cup; and even through its growth, it continues to offer custom sizing and design alterations.

8. Agent Provocateur

Founded in 1994, Agent Provocateur is a massive lingerie brand boosting more than 100 stores all over the world. As the name suggests, the retailer is known for its provocative videos. But it’s also known for expert construction and lush fabrics. According to its size chart, these bras go up to a band size 38 and a cup size F. From delicate chains to beaded tassels, a peak through the bra section will hit you right in the high fashion feels.

9. Addition Elle

Bra Brands

Addition Elle is giant brand in its own right, with more than 130 stores across Canada. Although it also sells clothing and accessories, it has become known for its bras and lingerie — much thanks to the brand’s partnership with plus size model Ashley Graham. Its bra fit guide makes it easy to shop the brand’s wide range of bras online. From the über sexy Flirt Bra to a wire-free cotton comfort one, there’s something for a whole range of plus size babes, including G and H cup ones.

These brands are true innovators, artists, and activists in the world of bras, each working to change and revolutionize fashion and lingerie. One cup at a time.

The Guide to Honeymoon Lingerie

Bedtime Lingerie.

With the nerves, stress and excitement of your wedding day as a memory to cherish for the rest of your life. The next thing most newly-weds couples minds turn to is their honeymoon. This is where you get to enjoy sheer relaxation, luxury and excitement of your honeymoon with the person you love.

While white and ivory lingerie is sweetly seductive on the big night, the honeymoon is a time to celebrate romance and embrace your inner seductive prowess. Here’s the Bareberry checklist of honeymoon lingerie must-haves:

The Sexy Lace Bra.

The Sexy Lace Bra

There are fewer things sexier than lace, so take along a few different colours. Pick a shape that suits your size and style. A lace demi cup with a revealing shape is classic seduction.  Indulge in European refinement with an intriguingly classic and utterly exquisite design. Beautiful lace creates a collection that is timeless and feminine. Yasmin is one of the finest collections bought to you from leading European lingerie designer Alles.

The Chic T-Shirt Bra.

The Chic T-Shirt Bra

A woman must always be comfortable when she travels. Look for a seamless t-shirt bra made with breathable, curve-hugging fabrics in fresh, feminine colours. Carla is your classic everyday moulded push-up bra giving gorgeous cleavage and support. Underwire seam-free cups ensure a completely smooth line under sheer or loose fitting clothes. A delicate ribbon with a gemstone at the front panel add a pretty touch.

Bedtime Lingerie.

Your sleepwear wardrobe is as important as what you wear during the day. Look for sensual fabrics, touches of skin-revealing lace, and flattering prints. It’s is time to view our selected range from French Designer Rose & Petal. This elegant collection brings together luxurious fabrics with a playful animal print. These captivating collections are anything but usual, flirtatious styles and thoughtful details perfect for everyday comfort or a special occasion.

A little lingerie goes a long way to feeling effortlessly sexy during one of the most exciting trips of your life! Don’t forget Matching Panties. This is a golden rule. Just like you wouldn’t go on your honeymoon without your better half, a bra should never travel without its bottom half.

As well as choosing underwear that you think will please your partner, you also need to choose underwear that you feel great in. There is no point wearing something that you feel fat, tacky, or self-conscious in. Confidence is the sexiest thing of all, so you want to ensure that you will feel relaxed and beautifully confident. Are you about to get married?

Got Hooked On Et Voila c’est Violet Tempest Babydoll, Jacket And Briefs

Betty Blues Loungerie SS16

This week we are introducing you to a naughty little delight that is the brand new colour way for our bestselling design, the Tempest set. For those of you not in the know. The Tempest set is inspired by none other than the legendary Ms Tempest Storm, burlesque dancer extraordinaire. The Tempest items are inspired by the infamous Teas-o-rama video clip of Tempest Storm and Bettie Page. Tempest Storm wears a rather alluring Basque set in varying transparencies of black mesh. So using this as a starting point, Betty created a naughty little set to captivate and titillate like the great Ms Storm herself.

Betty Blues Loungerie SS16

Again modeled by the stunning Miss Deadly Red, isn’t she a peach, photos taken by the lovely Tigz Rice and hair styled by Verity of the Vanity Box.  Miss Deadly Red, proving that even if you are a busty lady, pop a cheeky open cup bra on and you can wear this amazingly versatile little set.

The Violet Tempest Babydoll

The Violet Tempest Babydoll

This Babydoll is made from a soft sheer violet coloured mesh that is totally on trend for the SS16 season. Over the bust there is a giant bow which creates a teasing layered effect to conceal and reveal the bust. The bottom is finished with a row of flirty ruffles that adds a playful bounce to the skirt.

The Violet Tempest Bed Jacket

The Violet Tempest Bed Jacket

This cute as a button little Bed Jacket is made from a soft sheer vibrant violet mesh, in a classic ‘swing’ style shape. This means many bust sizes are accommodated in this little beauty making it a versatile little number. The sleeves are slightly puffed to add wonderful volume and finished with a scalloped elastic edging.  Matching the Babydoll, the edges of this peignoir have a ruffled edging giving a fabulous retro 60s vibe to this nightwear set.

Violet Tempest Briefs

Violet Tempest Briefs

This Brief is made from a beautiful lilac stretch silk and complimenting violet mesh. The central silk panel is 95% Silk and 5% Elastine and has a very lavish feel about it. The mesh panels are reminiscent of the varying transparencies of both the Bed Jacket and Babydoll. The whole item is finished off with a tiny lilac bow at the centre front and a soft cotton gusset lining. Soft, sumptuous and comfortable – what more could a girl want!

‘As Above, So Below’ From Famous Hopeless Lingerie

Hopeless Lingerie

From the very first collection, I’ve loved Hopeless Lingerie. Gabrielle ‘Gaby’ Adamidis, the woman behind Hopeless, is an indie designer who constantly pushes herself; her unique aesthetic is clearly visible in every single collection. And Gaby’s commitment to ethical design and production has made me more cognizant of these issues as well.

Hopeless Lingerie

To be perfectly honest, I’m not the most cerebral of fashion lovers. I can’t really get into a technical appreciation of design that’s not what draws me to lingerie. But I can tell you what I like. And I really like this.

Hopeless Lingerie

The ‘As Above, So Below’ line is available to purchase now onlion website.  All pieces are available in XXS-XXL. Custom orders and custom sizing are available as well. What do you think of Hopeless’ latest collection?
