I’m always on the lookout for the perfect sports bra. If I’m doing an intense workout, I want to stay as cool as possible while still feeling like I look cute! My outfit of choice is just a sports bra and knee-length leggings. (Being able to be a little less covered up is one of my favorite things about working out at home.) The perfect bra, to me, has the following qualities:
- Doesn’t allow any “show through”
- Has a little padding
Lucy, Lululemon, and Marika all have some nice options. However, they average about $50 per bra! So a few weeks ago, I decided to try out one of the cheapest options I found anywhere: the Seamless Sports Bra on Amazon from somewhere called FineBrandShop, for only $4.75! It had some good reviews, so at that price, it was worth a try. I got it in black, although there are lots of pretty colors. While I wouldn’t call it “perfect,” to my surprise, it’s actually pretty great!
The fabric of the bra is really soft. It reminds me, in fact, of the pieces I have from Beyond Yoga, which are about ten times the price! It fits all of the requirements on my list—even the padding, which is hard to find in a cheap sports bra. My only complaint is about the straps—I wish they were a little thicker and looked less like actual lingerie bra straps. They’re not uncomfortable–I would just like the bra to look a little more athletic. For $4.75 I can live with it, but I’d pay a few more dollars for some straps.
There is one major caveat about these bras—they come in only one size! I guess that’s part of keeping the cost low. These bras are definitely for the small to medium-chested. I’m a 34B, and the fit is perfect. I think it could work up or down a size in either direction, although if you’re much larger, I doubt these would fit or give you enough support. But if you’re not sure, for the price, it may be worth giving it a shot.
For some reason, although these bras are all sold by the same company and come in a lot of different colors, they’re all listed on different pages! I put links to them below by color:
