Sports bra test – which level suits you?
Whether you’re working out at the gym or doing yoga or CrossFit, Hunkemöller has the right sports bra for your cup size and style. But what is the perfect sports bra for my situation? There are three different bra levels available – and we got the job of testing them! Hunkemöller ambassador Dionne teamed up with Zanna and Shannen, bloggers at Fitness Meiden, to test out the different bras in real life. Curious to read the results?
HKMX “The Game” sports bra level 1
The Game sports bra is suitable for anyone engaging in gentle activities such as yoga, walking or cycling. Since I live beside a forest, I tested the sports bra on a long sunny walk in the Woods.
“Yes! A push-up sports bra!” was my first thought. Since I do not have very large breasts (#teamnoboobs), the push-up bra is great for me. On top of that, I really like the colour combination of blue, grey and black. Finally, I like the racerback fastening at the back. This makes the bra invisible when I am wearing my racerback tops.
During my walk, I didn’t have to worry about the bra for a second. I like to set a good pace, but that was no problem either. My breasts remained perfectly in place. The bra provided proper support for walking and was very comfortable. Since walking is not super intensive, I went straight out for a coffee after the walk wearing my sports outfit. The ideal thing about this bra is that it can easily pass as a regular bra under your top. No one will notice you are drinking a cup of coffee in your sports bra!`
The name gives it away – it’s almost impossible to tell that you are wearing a sports bra. A sports bra for medium-impact activities for cup sizes B to F, suitable for a good workout, spinning or even winter sports. I tested this sports bra while doing exercises for my back.
Wow, you can barely tell it’s a sports bra! The fabric feels fine and soft, it doesn’t chafe against your body and my breasts are properly covered. The nice thing about this sports bra is that the closure is at the back like a normal bra, making it easy to put on and take off.
Time for testing!
When doing back exercises, it is important that the straps of the bra remain in place and that my breasts stay properly inside the sports bra. During a deadlift, your breasts can sometimes fall out, but this was not the case (which was nice!). The straps of the sports bra also stayed properly in place and did not slip down once during training.
This splendid sports bra from the new HKMX sports bra collection has been specially developed for high-impact activities such as running, dancing and CrossFit. So I tested it during a tough CrossFit WOD.
The sports bra looks very comfortable and I think it is also very attractive. The fabric feels pleasant and firm. The cups are slightly pre-formed and there is no wire. It’s easy to put the bra on thanks to a zipper on the front, including a clip to keep it firmly closed – nice! The wide (adjustable) shoulder straps take the pressure off the shoulders, which is great! It doesn’t pull and it doesn’t chafe either. In short, the bra is really comfortable! And, moreover, it looks great too.
Time for testing!
The weights are ready; I’m ready too! Deadlifts, pull-ups, kettlebell swings. This bra can take anything! As the name suggests, the bra gives you precisely the support and comfort you need when you are doing intensive sport. It absorbs sweat during exercise, stays perfectly in place and doesn’t chafe, which is really nice!
