Anita Active Extreme Control Plus Sports Bra Review
Sports Bra expert Amy gives her take on the Anita Active Extreme Control Plus Sports Bra. Check out what Amy has to say about this offering from Anita.
“Hi, I’m Amy from Sports Bras Direct. Today I am taking a closer look of the features of the Anita Active Extreme Control Plus Sports Bra.
This is a non-wired high impact support bra making if perfect for activities such as running, cardio workouts, bootcamp, horse riding, etc.
Firstly, let’s look at the cup area of the bra. The under-band underneath the cups is nice and wide and sits flat against the chest to provide good firm support.
The cups themselves do not have any underwire but they have good shaping to give great breast separation. This helps prevent any uni-boob look. The separation through the middle combines nicely with a ventilation panel across the top of the cups.
Looking at the sides next you can see there is nice side shaping to help promote a good breast shape. There are seams on the cups exterior to assist in giving your breasts lift and support.
The design is all about providing firm support but with good breast shape that is lifted and separated.
Returning to the sides and around to the back you can once again see the side shaping that I mentioned. The sides transition to a well-ventilated side and back panel. This helps keep you nice and cool.
The back does up with a standard hook and eye closure. You can see with the multiple clasp columns you have lots of rood to adjust the under-band to suit.
The straps are regular in design and are what is called a leotard design. This means they sit slightly closer to the neck to help stop the straps slipping off your shoulders during exercise. The straps are also length adjustable at the back.
One feature I particularly like about this bra is the top of the straps where they go over your shoulders. There is a firm support strap to maximise the shoulder support. This sits on a wide padded under-strap to aid in shoulder comfort. It is essentially a double strap system to maximise support and comfort.
This double strap arrangement is joined so they won’t separate when in use. This design ensures the straps do not dig into your shoulders. This is important as this bra is specifically designed for larger cup sizes.
Taking a look inside the cups you can see the inside layer is made of a towelling type of material. This helps absorb and wick away any sweat away from your breasts. This allows you to exercise in comfort and helps prevent rub or chafing.
Anita active are known for their use of lightweight and breathable materials in their sports bra designs. This bra is super-soft and lightweight giving that second skin feel when wearing.
If your cups are bigger and you are looking for a wirefree bra that provides good support and breast shaping. The Anita Active Extreme Control Plus Sports Bra is a great option and well worth considering.”
