NYB stands for not your business - unless you want to know all about the deets of this bra. There's a lot, and it's all fun and different: first and foremost, the center front pocket is big enough to hold almost any smartphone, and has a small flap closure, so you can do hand stands or fly upside down. And we're loving the asymmetrical back design, combining a wider strap with two smaller straps, both providing ample support. The high neck also ensures top-breast coverage and reduced spillage. A wide chestband offers security and support - for all your business!
- Plya Interlock Compression (polyester / spandex)
- large front pocket with flap closure
- removable cups
- compression level: 2
- constructed with Bluesign Approved Fabrics
I have spent years looking for the perfect running bra for me, and this is it! It's compressive without being too tight. The fabric is thick which I like because it keeps down the bounce. The high neckline ensures that everything is secure. I ran the Berlin Marathon in this bra and had no chafing at all which I have gotten in all my previous marathons. So glad Oiselle released more colors to add to my collection of this bra!! For reference, I'm a 36B and wear a 6 in this bra.
This one just didn't work for me. It was very long (vertically), which didn't look very flattering. Maybe this would be good for larger busts because of the more conservative coverage which would hide cleavage? It squishes your boobs so not a great look. May be ok for larger breasts. The positives would be the interesting strap design. The middle pocket was too small (narrow) for my phone. It seems to fit true to size. I got the size 4, which is my usual for oiselle tops and bras. the band felt comfortable, just the bra itself didn't look good on me.
On a quest to find something to replicate an old Moving Comfort bra that was losing its elastic, I went through a failed odyssey of returns of other bras that felt more like flak jackets before discovering Oiselle. I bought this and the Lesko bra to try, both in size 6. I never in a million years thought I would actually use the phone pocket.. But I said the same thing about the camera on the first smartphone I bought and you know where that went. That was me, grinning like an idiot on my bike with a big rectangle sticking out from under my shirt. Seriously so useful! I am 5'3", a little heavy right now at 135 lbs, 34b/c cup and size 6 fits amazing and provides great support for cycling and hiking and yoga. I thought I might like the Lesko better but the NYB is by far my favorite - comfortable coverage without cutting into armpits or peeking out from under the collar, super cute and comfortable straps, and I love the wider band. And the fabric... Oh the fabric, butter soft, wicking, smell resistant. Designers please offer more colors!
Literally cannot find a good running bra that fits well in all areas and doesn’t chafe. Finally I found the one! Took this out on a hot/sweaty midday 5 miler and it was awesome. I had zero chafing, so that’s a huge win. Everything was comfortably snug, not too tight and the phone pocket was perfect. Phone pocket was nice because it creates a better connection to my Bluetooth headphones. When I wear my phone in my leggings, I sometimes have connectivity issues. Last perfect bit: easy to remove after sweaty run. I don’t think it gets better than this! Size reference: I’m a 36D with high profile implants, bought a size 12.
I ordered the same size I wear in the Flyout bra, but it didn't feel compressive enough for running and the front gaped out a little, but the band felt like the right size. I'm not sure if the problem is that the straps are just too long, but I'm exchanging for a size down and hoping that fixes the issue. For reference, I hover between a 34/36B and comfortably wear a 6 in both of my Flyout bras (which I love!).
The pocket also seems super secure, but since it wasn't very compressive on me, it bounced around a lot when my phone was in there and I tried running in place. It never felt like it would fall out, but it was pretty annoying. Again, hoping sizing down makes it work for me.
