I am a big-chested girl, so bra shopping is a bit of a nightmare. I've never been confident enough to buy bras online just because I have strong doubts about what will actually fit me. This bra was so beautiful, I decided to risk it. When it got here, I tried both the bra and the leggings on and felt so beautiful and confident and sexy and all these goods things. Buuuut then I jumped around and realized I would need to return the bra.
The problem is this: I have such big boobs that I measure as a size XL. But the extra large is too loose on me and doesn't provide the support I need. I debated trying to return it for the L, but it seems like the L wouldn't cover enough of my boobs for my comfort level. The sides cut a little low for my liking and I don't like showing a lot of cleavage. Basically, when I'm working out I was to be strapped in tight like a straghtjacket (lol) and this bra doesn't do that for me. It is beyond adorable and I love the pocket in the back. But realistically, it isn't nearly supportive enough.
I am sad to say as per usual bras are concerned. This bra fits average. So if you are of a bigger size then average these won’t work 😔.
Bought the 1X as the size chart suggests. Fits true to size but I gave it three stars for two reasons.
1- If you're over probably a B or small C cup, this is not going to offer enough support for medium-impact activities. It's a good yoga bar or good for arm workouts but I do not recommend it for anything more athletic than that.
2- Not good side-cup coverage for larger-busted women. I felt fairly exposed.
The good things about this bra- good front bust coverage, the band doesn't ride up, and the racer back doesn't dig in or pinch when doing upper back work like walnut crushers or cow face pose. The pocket is a brilliant idea and the colour and pattern are gorgeous. The photos don't really do it justice.
This pattern is by far my favorite so far from Popflex. I love stargazing, so when I saw this bra, I knew I had to have it! For better size accuracy, my measurements are bust 34 inches, waist 28 inches, and hips at largest part 38 inches. I'm a 6 in the V style tank tops from Dark Bloom and Dream Collection, an 4 in the Hold Me Zip bras from Dusty Blossom, a 6 in the Dark Bloom shrugs, a 6 in the Heart Strings bras and Curious Crop Top bras from Dark Bloom, and an 8 in the Set The Bar bras. This was true to size, but because of the compressed style and how lightweight the material is, it was a bit harder to get on. It kept rolling on itself and getting tangled because of it in the back, but once on, secure all day! Love the pocket in the back. Still fits my phone that has a case over it and a popsocket on it, though if you are wearing the bra under layers, it can be harder to just stick your phone in whenever. Otherwise, genius design and feel and print! Can't wait to buy more from this collection!
Out of all the Popflex collections this is by far my favorite bra! It's so hard to find a good bra when your on the busty side. I went by the size chart and ordered a medium & I actually feel so great in this one!!
