Freya Active Sports Bra Review*
Any fuller figured woman will know the pain of working out when you have boobs. It’s uncomfortable, impractical, and sometimes downright painful. That’s why it’s really important to get yourself a good sports bra for working out. I got sent this nude sports bra by Freya Active from Lingerie by Victoria to try out, so I was really excited to pop it on for my next work out.
Freya underwear specialises in larger sizes and this particular sports bra is available in cup sizes DD-K and back sizes 28 – 38 so pretty much whatever your shape, you’re in luck. It can be really difficult to find good fitting bras when you have a fuller bust and Freya’s size range is great. I have a 28 back size but I’m an E cup which is almost impossible to find on the high street, so it’s online all the way.
Ok, so it’s not the most attractive of underwear, but then – nude bras never are! This definitely isn’t one to wear with your abs out in the gym, you’re going to need a top over the top of it. But, of course, looks aren’t the most important thing when it comes to a sports bra.
What is the most important thing is the movement – or not, because there literally isn’t any. I felt so well supported that I could go on a trampoline with absolutely no movement in that area – in fact, I would go so far as to say, I’ve never felt that much support in a sports bra before. Wearing this, I felt super comfortable during Legs, Bums and Tums and could concentrate fully on getting a great workout.
There are a few features of the Freya Active sports bra that make it so supportive, including its thick shoulder and back straps, which I love, and double fabric which uses Coolmax technology to move moisture away from the body for a less sweaty workout. It also has an underwire, a feature that is often missing in sports bras, which gives you a great shape, rather than just strapping your bust down, as so many sports bras do.
With all these features, I’m going to go out on a limb and call this the most supportive sports bra I’ve tried yet!
