Rated 4 out of 5Â by DancingGrace Stunning and comfortable bra, but for one small thing...
I have been looking forward to Sweaty Betty finally creating and producing such a bra! The front zip detail is not only sexy but convenient and very, very comfortable. However, I wore mine for the first thing when I taught my barre class the other day, and though we perhaps have more arm movements than usual work out, the zip simply slided down! I had another funky Sweaty Betty crop top on top so nothing embarrassing happened. But the zip simply slided down and I had to try and pull the zip back up without my clients noticing. I was very surprised by this... and as someone with only 32A bust size, something like this simply had never happened to me...
I would highly recommend this product as it is faultless with design and material, I would also recommend perhaps wearing it with the additional fastening behind the zip done up. But otherwise a truly stunning product and I am very likely to buy another.

I bought this sport bra to wear skiing for comfort and I love it. I am a 32 DD and it fits perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Yogafifi Upbeat zip padded bra
The bra looks great and it holds my "d" cup boobs in place whilst jogging. The hook attachments are a bit fiddly, but you definitely need them. I didn't bother to do them up initially and found that my boobs had forced the zip open. This was a bit embarrassing in the woods!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jencatz Great Looking Bra
This bra looks fabulous on. I had to return a medium as the band was very loose. When I got a small the band fitted perfectly and the rest of it is a snug but comfortable fit (I'm a size 32DD) I gave 4 rather than 5 five stars as I find the hooks quite tricky to do up but would not trust the zip without them.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by RD001 Pretty back shame the zip doesn't stay up!!
Although this top fits nice unfortunatly support wise it's not that great - I'm 34B so bought M and the first time I wore at the gym whilst doing press ups the zip came undone!!! Wouldn't expect this from SB sports bra which should be secure?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MrsMotivator I've got boobs
Love it !!!!! As a small 34b I never have much cleavage. This is the first supportive sports bra that has given me a bit of va va va voom. I love the design at the back giving it extra pattern with the straps. Fastening at the front makes it so easy to put on and take off especially after a sweaty workout. I want more colours well done sweaty Betty.

I found this new style of the upbeat bra very disappointing. It looks great but its a fiddle to get it on, I struggle with the tiny loops for the little hooks and you really do need to use the hooks otherwise the zip slides down. Please bring back the old style upbeat bra, it was the best sports bra I've ever used!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Leedslassie would have loved it but....
Bought this with the matching leggings and would have loved to have kept it but.... No fault with the top, but women of a certain age with boobs of a certain size that require a bra either need one under this or you're 'too low'. Sorry to have to have returned it but it was vanity over dignity!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Memon A nice bra
This bra looks amazing on! However I'm a 34C and find that with the pads it was a little bit too 'chesty' for me. But when I took the pads out size S seemed quite loose! So I swapped it for a XS and it surprisingly fits quite well. This is the first medium impact bra I've tried. I usually wear the high intensity run or ultra run for my workouts and own various yoga bras for yoga and pilates. This provides enough support for a spin and circuit class and looks great! Remember to push the zip down to lock it in place or it will come undone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tessParkrunyogi Fantastic bra/top!
At 36, I have just bought my first ever sports bra, and what a find! I have been running/sporty at all only for the last five years, and as a size 6 with a bra size at the smaller end of a 32B, I had just used older, regular padded bras for running and yoga. Upon trying this wonderful item I realise that I had not been taking sufficient care of this area of my body. Personally, I like the thin pads very much because they help with a nice shape, and they are so comfortable that you would not know that they are removable at all when wearing. I have wide-ish shoulders for such a small frame, and often find that pull-on clothes are difficult to get on without over stretching the material, so seeing this bra with the zip was what really made me try it. Size XS perfect for me, even with wider shoulders. I purchased both colourways ('paradise' and coral), and I really hope that SB create more colour options in future seasons.
For a flatter-chested, athletic body like mine, I cannot recommend this highly enough. Aesthetically it is also so unusual at the back, and the fabric is of a great quality and worth the price tag. I plan to wear it without another top for yoga, as it is so beautiful and covers enough. I have seen fellow Parkrunners running in similar tops without other layers during the hot weather, and this keeps you cool. Multi-functional as a top and bra. THANK YOU SB - a new devotee here!
