Sports Bra Focus: Anita Active DynamiXstar
Today I will be taking a look at one of my favourites; the Anita Active DynamiXstar sports bra. As Anita say; ‘it is a global innovation’ that has received the “Red Dot Award”. What is the ‘Red Dot Award’ you ask, it is an award from one of the most highly rated and renowned design competitions worldwide with a top-class jury of international experts. Sounds good to me.
So what makes this bra so great?
The fabric is extremely soft and lightweight, it has a ‘barely there’ feel on your skin. The DynamiXstar is extremely comfortable and can definately suits all day wear.
The fabric is also highly breathable. The high functioning outer fabric and absorbent towelling inside the cups work together to create Anita’s sweat management system. The back of the bra features fast drying Coolmax mesh. I have road tested this bra in some very hot and humid conditions and this feature definitely receives a 10/10 from me.

The front adjustable strap system and wide back design allows ‘Easy On and Off”. I love that you can adjust the length of the straps at the front while you are wearing the bra. This also means that it can be used by breastfeeding mum’s too, as easy front opening access.
The comfort strap system was developed exclusively for Anita. The straps are a great width with integrated padding which prevents any digging into your shoulders during high impact activities. They are also designed to sit further from your neck than other racer backs, to help keep muscles more relaxed and prevent neck strain.
The racerback design seems to sit at exactly the right spot on my back. Certainly it is one of the few racer back designs that I can comfortably wear all day without feeling any neck or back pain.
Support, Shape and Support:
The Anita Active DynamiX Star is a wirefree bra with no padding in the cups, but it manages to achieve a fantastic breast shape for a great range of bust sizes.
This bra offers firm support for high impact activities. It is important to have a snug band fit as the under bust band provides stabilisation and support of the breasts. The racer back strap design also provides extra support. Hence this bra has been tested to reduce bounce by 78%.
The Anita Active sports bras are a higher price point than some other brands, but they are definitely worth the spend. The design, fabric, and stitching are of a very high quality. Furthermore I have washed and worn my Anita Active DynamiXstar sports bra at least once a week for over a year and it is still going strong.
