This sexy top looks like any other bra top, but it isn’t. It is a Breeze Comfort bra.
Traditional padded bras are typically made from man made materials that prevent the evaporation of perspiration. If you work out, or you simply sweat (admit it, we all do at least from time to time), you can’t help but notice the accumulation of moisture in the breast cup area. It’s not comfortable, or particularly good for your skin. Moisture that sits around where it doesn’t dry out, can even cause skin issues in places where you certainly don’t want them.
Breeze Comfort bras, however, are outfitted with special pads that help eliminate this problem. The VentipadTM is an invention in bra pad technology. It has perforations throughout the padding, which allows the passage of air and moisture in the area around the chest. While moisture-wicking fabric alone in traditional, padded bras can help, the patented, ventilation channels in the Ventipad enables increased air circulation to occur. That, in turn, lets perspiration to evaporate more quickly. The Breeze Comfort bras also have moisture-wicking fabric, so the result is a bra that really helps you stay cooler and drier.
But a bra ought to still look nice so you feel good against your skin, I particularly liked the Yin Yang Patented Sports Bra from Breeze Comfort in the photo at the top of the page. It’s 92% polyester / 8% spandex, available in small, medium or large, and in color combos of pink and black, silver and black or red and black, each just $35.00. Breeze Comfort has plenty of other more traditional regular, ca,o, and sports-type bras to choose from, but this one is just the most eye catching (in my opinion).
I love the look of the multi-toned cross over of the Yin/Yang bra. It was also a very comfortable bra to wear. I felt good knowing that I was wearing something attractive. The cross over design and full back is good for low to medium impact activities such as yoga and pilates. However, if your bra size is closer to Pamela Anderson’s than a 34B, this particular style of bra might not give you enough support. No worries, because there are plenty of other Breeze Comfort bras with more coverage and support, that would be a good fit (pun not intended).
I liked the way the pads did wick away moisture, but they also were prominently outlined against the stretchy fabric. While I wouldn’t normally just wear a sports bra without a top over it, the pads showed through enough so that those who like to just wear a sports bra, might not feel comfortable wearing this particular style without some sort of over layer.
As to wear, the bra is well made. But when I put the bra in the washing machine, the pads got all bunched up inside the bra cups. Luckily, there are open pouches to access the pads, and once I removed the pads, and smoothed them out, and replaced them in the bra, all was well. Hand washing might have eliminated that bunching issue. However, since you are sweating in the bra, you really do have to wash it every time you wear it. How you wash it is up to you.
All in all, based on this one lovely bra, I’d say that Breeze Comfort is a good bet not just for sports, but also as a multi-tasking a bra you can wear when you travel, or under casual clothing in the warmer months. Visit: http://www.breezecomfort.com/
