SheFit is a new sports bra company that has been doing some aggressive marketing. I kept seeing their ads. Once I went to the website, I would see it even more often.
So for $65, I decided to buy it. I typically wear no-padded Under Armour bras. The ones I have are at least five years old. I just can’t seem to find bras I like!
For us bigger chested women, finding a sports bra is a major issue.
The bra arrived in a nice garment bag. I unzipped the bag and found the bra inside. After reviewing the YouTube video, I tried it on.
My biggest challenge was the front zipper. I tried to zipper and it wouldn’t work. Then I reviewed a YouTube video where the rep said, “if you are having issues zippering, hook the eye hook in the front, then try zippering.”
After that, I adjusted the back by pulling it into place and the shoulder straps also, with a little tug it was set.
It felt generally comfortable. I jumped. They stayed in place. Now for the real test.
The Test Drive
I put it on and pulled the back tight, then pulled the shoulders tight. I noticed that there was some slack on the bottom. I’m not sure if the bra was too big?
In any event, I wore it under my kit and then put on a wetsuit. I didn’t seem to notice it under the wetsuit, although I did feel that it was a little bulkier than my normal UA bras that I’ve been wearing forever. The straps on the top and in the back make it a little cumbersome. I wished it were not so thick.
But, while I was swimming, I didn’t notice anything different. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to ride or to run that day, but I did try it on another day and “the girls” seemed to stay in place. If the straps weren’t so think, I may want to buy another one of these bras. I guess if you are only using it for running or cycling, you probably won’t notice the straps. Also, the bra comes in different support strengths. The one I bought was maximum support.
