The Ballard Bra (named after one of our fave Seattle neighborhoods) combines both weight-distributing straps and mesh inset detailing. Made of our crowd-pleasing Nyelle™ Compression, it's also incredibly soft, stretchy, and comfortable.
- Nyelle™ Compression (nylon/spandex)
- Nyelle™ Mighty Mesh detail trim (nylon/spandex)
- Plya™ Power Mesh lining (micropoly/spandex)
- new removable cup with more coverage
- 4 straps for comfort and support
- compression level: 2
The fit is good and the support is great. But it's not very breathable and the fabric is thick so once it's wet it's heavy and it takes a long time to dry.
I'm usually a 34c in bras. I ordered a size 6 and it fits great. Comfortable and soft, yet supportive.
I totally agree with all of the other comments: this bra is super comfortable and supportive and cute, with no chaffing. I'm taking off a star because it's thick and not breathable. Even after I took out the removable bra cups, the front of the bra still feels like double-thickness. It's almost cushiony. This is good for added coverage, but means I won't be able to wear this bra when it's hot. I ran 2 hours in 55 degrees yesterday and it made me hotter than other bras I've worn on similar runs. So if you're looking for a good sweat-wicking, breathable bra, this is not it. I'll wear it in the winter for sure. For reference: I'm 5'4", 115lbs, and wear a 32B/34A and the 4 fits really well.
This is the best sports bra I have ever ran in. In love all the details of the bra and coverage. I barely notice I have it on when running. I am a 34b bra size 131 lbs and 5’7 and ordered a size 6 which fit felt a little bit “tight” but I’ve always sized up in everything and used to looser feeling. I may try an 8 with my next purchase. Overall I highly recommend this bra.
This is my go-to bra when I mean business—like a big workout or long run—or when I know I’ll end up in just a sports bra. It has enough coverage and support to stand alone, and its structure makes it easy to focus on the work I’m doing without distractions. Plus the details make it cute and unique!
This bra is amazing! It's so soft, and not constricting, but also so supportive. After 20+ miles, I forgot it was there and, for the best part--nothing chafed!! I cannot wait to buy all of the colors, since I have been in search of a new running bra for a while. I'm 5'6", 118, and wear a 32C or 34B, and the size 4 was perfect.
I seriously can't believe that a bra this comfy can also be so supportive. This is my new favorite and I can't wait to buy it in more colors. It is made of the softest material... but don't let that fool you... this is one of the most supportive bras I own.
I love this bra! I am a 32D, so I struggle to find sports bras that are comfortable but also supportive. This bra fits both. The straps are well placed so that I do not get shoulder and neck pain from wearing the bra for a longer run. And, it does not chafe. I appreciate that it has a little extra fabric and mesh on the chest, so I do not look like I am bursting out of it. For size reference, a 4 fit just right.
