The Esther Bra is designed specifically for C/D cups that need solid support for high impact sports, but perhaps not as much as that of the band/cup bras, such as Sisters and Queen. The strength of Esther is in the thoughtful combination of elements: our plush ribbed elastic at the chest band, wide padded straps that have stretch and no-stretch where needed, adjustable plush elastic straps at the back that can convert to straight or cross back, and finally, a unique cup design. Rather than molded, padded cups, Esther has a special heat molded liner (without removable pads) that creates encapsulation for the breasts, combined with strong and supportive compression. The net net is higher support - without losing the beloved simplicity of a sports bra that is pull-on-and-go!
- Plya Interlock fabric (polyester / spandex)
- Straps are covered, padded, and stable for minimal bounce
- Adjustable and convertible straps for different levels of support
I have many Oiselle bras. I have started wearing them instead of Victoria Secret! This one has super cute straps. I wore it with the Lux Mock Neck so the straps showed in the back and my friend asked if she could take a photo of it - she loved it! The bra is not as stretchy as others so a tad harder to get on and off. I wear a 32DD or size 4. It fits well once it is on! The straps are very comfy.
As a larger cup, Oiselle's bras have been pretty much a no-go for me. This one is pretty good! I'm not shouting from the rooftops about it, but the fit on the band is great, and it's comfortable and breathable. It has compression, which I prefer, so that the ladies aren't quite so front and center. I wish the straps were more padded, and since it converts to X back, they are quite long. I have them on the shortest setting for the regular position and it juuuuuust barely is short enough. A great purchase for the Née Day sale.
At long last, after searching for years, I think I’ve found the perfect bra. This is such an amazing bra - it fits so well even without a rear clasp, no awkwardly placed seams to cause chafing, adjustable comfortable straps, and no padding. I will be buying this in every color. For reference, I’m a 38D, and the 10 fit perfectly.
The description of this bra sounded perfect for me - I'm a petite 32D and band/cup bras are usually way too much bra for me. My under-bust measurement is 28" and I wear a 2 in the Ballard bra, which I love (so sad it's apparently been discontinued). I could barely get this bra past my shoulders - the band was so tight. I did get it on, and the band fit correctly around my rib cage - I wouldn't want to go up to a 4. But the cups were too small, and I needed help getting out of it. It's a beautiful bra and feels well-made, but it's going back.
I was hesitant about purchasing the white bra, but this one surpassed my expectations! It's solid. Not see-through- and I soaked this bra on my run. It IS thin. There is no padding, but I find this to be perfect for Florida running conditions and I am not a fan of padding anyways.
The material is super soft and the molded liner is nice. I measured a size 4, but knew that wasn't the case since I'm a 36D. I ordered a 6 and it fits well. I don't like where the metal hooks sit on my back, I would never be able to use a pack. I also think running more than 5 miles the metal hooks will rub all the skin off my back. Support is okay as well. I've tried many of O's bras and none of them really work.
All hail the Esther bra. It’s perfection. I can run in it and lounge in it and bonus no uniboob. The fabric is so smooth and comfortable. The ability to cross the straps for extra support is awesome. I’m at 34DD and feel fully supported. I will have it in all three colors.
This is my first purchase and I love this bra! It is a solid bra for gym when the straps are parallel to each other, and it offers great support when the straps are crossed for running. Just ran 5k with them and I am in loveeeee. Checked all the boxes for me and I will definitely purchase more in the future!
The one thing for ladies who want to wear their bra as the only top piece to run in summer is that the bras doesn’t hide your nipples haha. If you don’t mind that it is no big deal. But overall great bra, wish there will be a high vis version in the horizon!
