Upbeat Padded Bra
Fluro running bra fastening band: ouch!!
Really unhappy with this top. Have same top in orange & so removed the pads on holiday abroad on first wear as i had with the other one only to find there is a sharp badly finished seam at the back which really digs in & is very uncomfortable. Dont feel I can return as discarded the pads in Mallorca. Also very snug fit which is fine for running but when on last hook the other hooks dig in so very uncomfortable. Looks great but not comfy. Ran in it today & was really aware of the badly finished hem at the back digging in :-((

Wonderful colour, gives you a nice shape but has some sharp bits on it
I thought for a while before rating this one. The colour is great and just sets off perfectly any colour and style of top I wear and illuminates the complexion. Also the padding is gentle and gives you a really nice shape.
Is not meant as high impact bra, but actually is fine for running as well as general workout activity.
When I first wore it to the gym though, I found that there was something sharp digging into my back that first gave me a blister then a small cut. I had a good look at home, thinking probably it was a loose metal hook but actually all round the fastening the bonding is rough, needle sharp in some places.
Thought about taking it back but loved colour and the soft, supportive comfortable fit everywhere else, so very carefully sorted it out with tiny nail scissors and file to get rid of sharp edges.
Just a bit surprised, and slightly disappointed, at having to do this.
It did the trick and is lovely to wear now, so I also bought the neon yellow version. I had the same trouble with that one and used the same solution.
Sidewise I'm uk 8-10 and 32d. The small size is a perfect fit.

Good quality material that always outlasts other brands. Excellent fit and shape, and provides good support for gym use. Probably wouldnt wear it for running though as use another sweaty betty bra for higher impact

This bra is a great fit, fabulous bright colours too so look amazing under contrasting vest tops. Not enough support for running but perfect for medium impact sports or just for every day wear.

Idea as bra straps fall down all time and this is fitted so nothing is going nowhere idea for impact and lots ov moving about

Amazing sports bra!
Words simply can't describe how much I love it! It is so flattering, pretty, and serves its purpose as a medium-support bra. I do wear it for high intensity classes at the gym, but that is because I love it so much and no other sports bra in my wardrobe compares. I have just ordered the same one in the green colour and am so excited about it arriving tomorrow. In terms of size, I am normally a 32DD but the Small size fits me perfectly.

Lovely bra with good support
Love the fit and colour of this bra. Padding is a bonus.

This bra is very comfortable to wear and doesn't make me look completely flat chested. I wish the padded cups were permanent rather then removable. Downside is the bra closure, not easy to do up on your own!

The clasp is very uncomfortable.
It is uncomfortable just wearing it. Ok when I first tried it on but like any busy woman I spend half my day in my gym kit and it is painful. It is painful if you do lying on your back exercises like situps. My last one from Sweaty Betty was exactly the same without the clasp so I have gone back to using my old one. Sadly you don't know it is uncomfortable till you have worn it a while.

Bright padded sports bra
Best sports bra I've owned - need to get more of them. Bright fun colour, minimal padded cup which is great when wearing tight lycra singlets and very comfortable!
