Berlei ProElite Mesh Crop Review
Sports Bra expert Amy gives her take on the Berlei ProElite Mesh Crop. Check out what Amy has to say about this offering from Berlei.
“Hi, I’m Amy from Sports Bras Direct. Today I am having a closer look at the Berlei ProElite Mesh Crop. This is a high impact sports bra that has been designed for the fuller busted lady.
Let’s have a closer look at this sports bra’s features. As you can see it is a crop style bra.
Looking closer at the cups you can see that they are both underwired. This helps with breast support and shaping. Looking at the inside you can see the position of the underwire as it wraps around the cup. This helps support and separate the breasts.
The cups have a nice, smooth outer layer. They are made from a double material to give the cups thickness and offer modesty as well. Whilst still being breathable.
You can see on the inside of the cup that it is completely seamfree. This smooth inner cup silhouette offers nothing that can chafe or cause you discomfort.
Looking next at the shoulder strap design. The straps are nice and wide with some padding. This offers great shoulder comfort. There is a mesh panel designed in. This goes across the top and into the racer back of the bra. This is fantastic for breathability.
The straps themselves are adjustable at the front. This can be done whilst the bra is on. The advantage of this is you can fine tune the fit without having to take the bra off. The straps are Velcro adjusted by simply undoing, adjusting, and re-attach at the height that you need.
The straps do come all the way out. This can make it easier to take the bra off when you are hot and sweaty. If you have mobility issues and are unable to successfully put the bra on with the straps attached, you can undo them to make putting the bra on easier.
Looking at the back fastening you can see it is a standard hook and eye closure. It is a comfort strap. On the inside it is nice and smooth with a padded layer. So, there is nothing that can chafe underneath the hook and eye.
So, all in all a nice, funky crop style. Designed for the fuller busted. Great shaping provided by the underwire. Wonderfully comfortable and supportive to wear.
We do find that this bra does fit a little snug in the cups. So, if you are at the fuller end of the cup size, I do recommend sizing up a cup size to get the perfect fit.
