- sports bra
When I first put this bra on, after trying the Cambri, stewpot back, and an older Athena version, I immediately told my husband THIS bra can replace ALL of the other sports bras AND everyday where nursing bras. I felt sooo confident in it. The coverage, AMAZING. I ordered the 3X and I struggle to get good side boob coverage and also front coverage. This bra made me feel so secure, held in, and just so comfy. Also when I first put it on I noticed something really poking/itching me in the middle of my back. I figured it was a tag and I would adjust it. But I discovered when I reached back it was part of the eye and hook strap. After taking it off to examine I realize it is the stitching on both the top and bottom of both the eye strap and hook strap. The thread used is very course and there is no adjusting it. This part of the fabric sits on your back. So with every move it feels like a corner of a tag or a piece of plastic is rubbing my back. When I took it off later after hours of wear, I had a red mark from where it runs so much. A huge bummer. Another thing that I found unfortunate is the width of the shoulder straps. They are so narrow/thin they roll very easily and it felt at times like a rubber band. Even though this is a pumping and nursing bra, if these two issues were remedied I would literally live in this bra for ALL occasions. I also got the Athena 3.0 with the same purchase. If the width of the straps on the nee athena could be put on this bra, match made in heaven and I’d never take it off! I just saw I can add photos. I will take some and come back to update soon.

Sports bra review
I was hoping to take advantage of the straps being able to cross or go straight down the back so as to use the bra under workout and everyday tops. Unfortunately, the bra did not feel as secure with the straps straight so I did not keep it. For the price I wanted the bra to do it all but it is first and most strongly a sports bra. Besides the straps, the fabric is thick (almost too thick given it is for working out in and especially with the pads kept in), it is well-constucted, the snaps and latches are sturdy, and the style is flattering. With my sizing I could have gone with a medium or a large. I went with medium and found it to be a good fit.

YAY!! We love that you love them!!
I am usually a medium or a large. I got the medium, but am exchanging for a large. It is nice to have a bra to wear all day and then be able to easily put the pumping part in when needed. It certainly beats having me put on a separate pumping bra each time I need to pump hands free!
So comfy I forget it’s a nursing/pumping bra! I did think it was a bit tight but I like my sports bras a bit tighter and I mean around the bad area, if I went up a size it might have been too loose? The fabric is buttery soft I love it!
