Sports Bra Review: Anita Active Air Control Sports Bra

Sports Bra expert Amy gives her take on the Anita Active Air Control Sports Bra. Check out what Amy has to say about this offering from Anita.

Amy’s Review

“Looking at the Anita Active Air Control Sports Bra. The first thing you’ll notice is just how incredibly lightweight this bra is. It’s actually the world’s lightest bra and it’s really, really soft material. You can literally put it on and forget that you are wearing it.

It’s really breathable material, you can see here all the mesh through there. And if we have a look at the back of the bra as well. You can see that the mesh paneling does continue through the back as well. So really good sweat management while you’re wearing this bra.

It is a non-wired bra that has a nice, firm support through the band. It’s non-moulded and non-padded in the cups as well . So, just follows the natural contours of your breasts. There is a side support panel as well to help with that natural shaping.

Straps are regular straps, padded through the top for additional comfort. They are adjustable at the back through your standard bra strap. It also does up at the back through a regular hook and eye closure. So, nice and easy for putting on.

If we have a look at the inside of the cups they are lined with a soft material. You will see there’s no seams there at all throughout the cups. This makes it nice and comfortable for wearing. With no risk of chafing on any seams there.

So, if you’re after a high-impact support bra. With a really nice, natural shaping of your breasts. Incredibly lightweight and comfortable enough to wear all day long. The Anita Active Air Control Bra is definitely worth a look.”

1. Underbust Size

2. Overbust Size

Measuring Your Underbust

Stand straight with your arms hanging casually by your side; if you can get a friend to measure you around your chest, directly under your bust.

Ideally, measure yourself while you are not wearing a bra, or if you are wearing one, be careful not to sit the tape over any part of your bra.  The tape should sit directly under your breasts (where your bra band would normally sit), should be horizontal all the way around and be as tight as possible without being uncomfortable (exactly like your bra’s underband).  This measurement is your Underbust.


Measuring Your Overbust

Still standing straight measure horizontally around the fullest part of your bust (usually over the nipples).  This is best done while you’re wearing a good fitting bra.  The tape should not be to tight resting lightly on your body. Make sure the tape is straight across your back and is parallel to the floor.  This measurement is your Overbust.

  2. Overbust size; measure around the fullest part of your breasts. Read more below.

Crop Tops

Crop tops can fit differently to cupped bras.  Generally speaking they are more similar to women’s clothing sizes.

XS = 8    S = 10   M = 12   L = 14   XL = 16    XXL = 18

Sports Bras Direct recommends crop tops for cup sizes A-D only. You must also check the specific style of crop top suits the level of impact you require.  Breasts that are bigger than a D cup require more specific support from a cup size sports bra.

Each Brand has a slight variation in their actual measurement guidelines for crop tops. Please check brand specific sizing below to establish the best size crop to suit you.

If you are still unsure on your size we would love to help you, please contact us to arrange your personal fitting appointment.
