This is a review of the Freya Active Underwired Crop Top Sport Bra, provided to me by LessBounce as part of the UKRunChat 2014 Challenge. This bra is available for £40 at and is available in sizes 34-40 B, C; 28-40 D-G; 28-38 GG; 30-36H.

The bra is available in two colours and I was sent the indigo version. It’s a beautiful shade of purple with neon/bright yellow patches at the front and along the sides and the stitches around the edges are also in this yellow colour. I felt that it could be worn with or without a top. The bra is also underwired, which I liked as I felt that it would be more supportive.

The back bra closure felt secure as it had three rows and four columns of hook and eyes and the bra was really comfortable when on. It also had extra movable hooks along the back which allowed me to turn it into a racerback bra.

The bra was really supportive when running. I have a reasonably sized chest, so I really need a bra that supports the weight when running and this bra did well! I wore it as a racer bra and I really did feel “LessBounce” as my chest was very unmoveable without making me feel squashed or sweaty.

I also really liked the message from Selaine from LessBounce that was included in the package. It told me how the bra should fit in order to work most effectively and gave me a telephone number to call if I needed more advice. It also provided clear instructions on how to return the bra if it wasn’t quite right.

Overall rating 5/5

Would I recommend this bra to a friend? 5/5
