Adidas AdiPure Sports Bra $30, adidas.com
The Good: Lightweight, super-supportive, at first…
The Bad: But not after you wash the thing.
The Awesome: Even after the material loosens up, it’s great for low-impact sports.
Comfortable enough to sleep in, yes, many naps and one long night was spent in it, the Adidas AdiPure sports bra is a great basic for all your light impact activities. The racer-back’s thin straps are not the major support system which brings relief from the usual constant pressure on the traps as well as rubbing and chaﬁng of the shoulders. Which brings me to the next topic: support. Day one, the support was awesome. My workout including jump rope and pull ups caused little concern as to whether I felt secure and strapped in.
Unfortunately, day one is where that ended. After the ﬁrst wash and dry, the material was not as supportive, since the straps provide little to no support. I was uncomfortable performing any impact movements like jumping, running, and even my kettlebell swings. Luckily, Adidas is marketing this product for light impact and I ﬁgured I would give it one more shot for yoga, and I was happy with my decision. My biggest aversion still remains the durability and lifespan of the light weight very comfortable fabric, but I will continue to wear it during my lifting days and those days every girl decides its ok not to wear an underwire.
