Bra Review – Ulla Kate Underwired Sports Bra (6024)
The Ulla Kate Underwired Sports Bra is a feat of larger cup lingerie engineering. This bra can defy gravity in the larger cup sizes with its incredible lift and support, not to mention its high level of comfort. Every now and again, we can try up to 20 bras on someone and nothing but the Ulla Kate Underwired Sports Bra will fit perfectly. The straps are comfortable and sit well on the shoulders, the band is wide and doesn’t roll or dig in, the cups give great lift… it can just work perfectly!
AUS 10 – 14 (UK 32 – 36) E – JJ cups (up to a European L cup)
AUS 16 – 22 (UK 38 – 44) D – JJ cups (up to a European L cup)
The Ulla Kate Underwired Sports Bra is also available in larger band sizes, please contact us for availability.
Black and white are available all year round.
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.
