Best Features

The ergonomically designed straps are like heaven on the shoulders for fuller busted women. The wide straps are padded and cotton lined, and are super comfortable with minimal stretch. The feature we love the most though is the underwires which are cut short on the sides under the arm. This makes the Ulla Kate Underwired Sports Bra perfect for shorter or petite waisted women who struggle with being poked in the armpit in other styles. We are yet to find an underwired bra that is better at minimising underwire pokes! The Ulla Kate Underwired Sports Bra also features an antimicrobial finish in the moisture wicking fibres that can’t be washed out. This will inhibit bacterial growth and keep you dry, and prevent any smelly odours! If underwires aren’t your cup of tea, then there’s also the Ulla Kate Wirefree Sports Bra which is made of the same great fabric.

What women love:

  • Extremely comfortable high impact sports bra, especially in J – JJ cups.
  • Natural rounded shape.
  • Many women love the fit and support so much that they will wear this as an everyday bra.
  • Breathable, moisture wicking fabrics will keep you dry.

What some women may dislike:

  • The fabric in the cups can seem quite thin even though it is sturdy.
  • Very full upper bust coverage may be too high cut for lots of clothing choices.
  • Some styles of sports bras can be machine washed in a lingerie bag on a delicate cycle, but the Ulla Kate Underwired Sports Bra must always be hand washed.


Let’s also address the elephant in the room; the Ulla Kate Underwired Sports Bra is an expensive bra. However, this bra covers an incredible size range, and its fit, lift and support is unmatched in the J – JJ cups especially. All Ulla bras are also hand stitched in Germany, and undergo vigorous quality control before making their way to us. The cost accounts for the quality of the engineering, production and materials used.

    Sadly found this bra most uncomfortable as the wire was sticking into my bust and I think that the cup was too small. Wore it once and gave up as it was so tight and my left breast was being squashed into the wire that goes between the breasts. A lot of money spent and bra is not good so will either donate to charity or bin it.

      Hi Mercury, We’re really sorry to hear your experience with the Ulla Kate Sports Bra. It does sound like the size may have been too small in the cup as your bra should never cause any discomfort or dig into you the way you have described. We generally find that this style works well on most women, but there is no such thing as one style to suit every body, so it’s worth trying a few sports bra styles and shapes to find the perfect one for you. We also love the Panache Sports Bra (D-J cup), the Elomi Energise Multiway Sports Bra (D-K cup) and Freya Active Core Sports Bra (D-K cup). If you’d like any advice on choosing a sports bra style & size, we’d be happy to help you either in-store or via email at Thanks for your comment!

    Having found the Ulla sports bra, I have stopped searching. Really great support, even when jogging. Comfortable, because it fits well and is supportive, so it is my bra of choice
