FULL REVIEW

Comfort

Designed for comfort and support in mind, the Power Bra from New Balance has a gel-infused strap lining specifically for comfort, as well as a powermesh lining that offers sweat-wicking and breathability when you’re breaking a sweat.

Fit/Mobility

New Balance made the Power Bra with a stabilized center frame, underbust  cradle, side frame and straps, so it’s made to move. The bra comes in specific bra sizes, and we found the bra to fit to size and provided ample coverage for any type of athletic endeavor.

Support

With specially designed padded cups, the New Balance Power Bra gives substantial support and shaping to C and D cups. It uses encapsulation and compression support technology, so each internal cup supports each breast individually while the outside shell maintains the appropriate compression.

Breathability

There is more fabric on the New Balance Power Bra than the more minimal designs, but it’s still relatively lightweight and the powermesh lining is fully supportive while also breathable. The shoulder straps are not intrusive, so there’s plenty of airflow opportunity offered from the back of the bra.

Style/Design

Specific cup sizes and a gel-infused hook/eye closure make the design of the New Balance Power Bra catered to fit, but the style is a nice addition as well. The bra offers a lot of coverage, which can be excessive with smaller tank tops, but the variety of color combinations and sleek racer-back shoulder straps make for a stylish bra that specializes in adjustability and support.
