Sports Bra Review: Anita Active Momentum Underwire Sports Bra

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

Amy’s Review

“Hi, I’m Amy from Sports Bras Direct looking at the Anita Active Momentum Underwired Sports Bra. As the name suggests, this is an underwired sports bra.

It’s made of Anita Active’s typical moisture management material. This is incredibly lightweight and soft . It’s very breathable while you’re wearing the bra. To help with that breathability Anita use additional mesh panelling throughout the back section as well.

You’ll also see from here it does have nice side support. With some side support paneling as well. It helps with that breast shape and that support all around the bra.

The straps are of a regular design. They are padded through the top for additional comfort. They are easily adjustable for length at the back.

It’s easy to put on. Just like a regular bra. It also has a hook and eye closure at the back as well.

Looking inside the bra, the cups are made of a towelling, sweat-absorbent material. You can see in the main section of the cup there is no seams there at all. So, it really helps with that comfort factor.

So if you are after a regular design bra rather than a racer back. With high-impact support. That’s comfortable and lightweight enough just to wear everyday – as well for those extreme impact activities. Then the Anita Active Underwired Momentum Bra is for you.”

1. Underbust 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.
