Tempo Padded Bra
very pretty, runs a bit big
I'm petite and wear a size 32DD bra, usually a medium in S-M-L sports bra sizes. After reading the reviews I got this in the S, which was definitely the right choice. I got the blue and love the color and print, but it fits more like a crop top than a sports bra on me. The straps are quite long and the band hits below my bust. I found the band to be quite snug, but the bra itself had plenty of room. Most 'padded' sports bras just have removable cups for shaping, but this one is truly padded, which I don't need so I removed the cups and it fit better through the bust. It's a great top for the gym or yoga, but not enough support for medium or high impact activities. I also found it quite easy to got off and on, a major plus in a sports bra. I really like it but I'm undecided about keeping it because of the fit. Wish it had adjustable straps and just a bit more room in the band.

Not Bad for D Cups
This bra is one of the only bras on the site recommended for D cups and does a fairly good job of minimizing the smashed, uniboob effect often caused by this type of athletic wear. I really like the design, but the hook closure in the back rubs and irritates my skin after an hour or so of wear.

Snug and comfortable
The bra is really comfortable. Wore it for a quick 4k run then attended Yoga class after and to me the support it gave me was great. I love the colour too!

great technical sport bra
I love the print and the mesh back. The wide straps sit comfortably.
It was a bit tight around my ribs, so I added 2 more sets of hooks cut from a retired black bra.

I got very excited when I bought this bra as I am constantly looking for supportive but also padded sports bras.
It is a gorgeous colour but the fit comes up a little big for me. I have a very narrow rib cage and it finishes right on my rib cage which can be a little uncomfortable. I think that it needs to also come in an XS for more petite girls and then it would be perfect.

why have the back clasp?
Great look but perhaps this should remain a pull over bra and forget the back clasp? I do not feel any extra benefit of support, just a hard time twisting my arms to get the bra hooked once it's on! The clasp then makes it a bit uncomfortable if you are on your back for your workout.

Really nice to find something that is comfortable but feels supportive to run in with the added benefit of padding - a little more flattering than the average bandage like running bra!

Very flattering yet supportive sports bra!
Perfect fit, not too tight but supportive and enhancing for someone less well endowed like myself :(

Tempo padded bra
Great bra, it's a great fit for me as as I'm quite a small frame, also love the fact that it's padded which adds some shape to small busted ladies.
It's a great work out bra and stays in place.

Comfortable but snug for large boobs!
This bra is comfortable and offers great support.
I have a large chest (34F) and knew it would be fairly tight, which it is, but with pads removed it is comfortable and supportive and great for my Ashtanga yoga workout.
I like the design and the bra-style fastening.
