Best Features

One of the best features of this bra is the cup size range. There are limited options for J - K cup customers in sports bras, and the Freya Active Core Underwire Sports Bra is easily the best on the market. It is great for high-intensity workouts. This bra also features a wide band with three hooks in the D and E cups and four in the F - K cups. The wide band anchors the bra to the body, providing stability while preventing chafing. The wide curvature of the underwire means it won't poke you in the underarm while running.

What customers love:

    • A double layer of fabric in the cup adds extra support without adding bulk.
    • It works well for women with fuller busts at the sides as it brings breast tissue to the front of the body.
    • Padded straps are wide and comfortable on the shoulders.
    • Leotard back brings straps towards the centre at the back to prevent slippage.
    • Additional hooks and eyes mean more skin contact and a higher level of support.

What customers may not like:

  • The central seam on the cup can appear heavy underneath clothing and give a pointier shape.
  • The wires may not sit flush if you are full at the centre of the bust.
  • Some women with limited mobility may struggle with extra hooks at the back.
  • Limited adjustability of straps.
  • No racerback option - try the Freya Active Epic Moulded Crop Top Sports Bra. You can take a look at our review of this excellent style here.
