Nike Pro Hyper Classic Padded Sports Bra ReviewDecember 13, 2016
- Superior fit and mobility for running
- Seamless construction
- Lightweight and breathable
- Logo on the chest
- More sporty than stylish
The Nike Pro Hyper Classic Padded Sports Bra has superior fit, compression, breathability and mobility for a running bra. Testers agree that a running bra does not get much better than the Pro Hyper Classic. The sports bra is offered in a variety of fun or neutral colors and is the most versatile and overall functional running bra of the test group.
With flat seams and a flocked material texture the Pro Hyper Classic Padded Sports Bra fits well and feels smooth on the skin. The seamless construction features flywire overlays for extra support where needed, providing a superior fit for added comfort.
The Pro Hyper Classic Padded Sports Bra is designed to move with you and offered the best fit for running of any of the bras in the test group. The flat seems and racerback design combined with flywire detailing in the support system, moves well allowing for restriction- and chafe-free running. Removable pads are flattering for shape, but can be easily discarded for a more breathable fit.
The Pro Hyper Classic is enhanced with flywire overlays that provide support where you need it for running. The material fits snugly and is highly compressive and offers an elastic chest band to keep the bra in place and support in all the right places.
Testers found the lightweight construction of the Pro Hyper Classic Padded Sports Bra to be the most breathable and moisture wicking as long as the pads were removed. With a mesh back panel the bra offers extra ventilation for hot running and workouts.
The flywire overlays that are intended for support and mobility give an added touch of sporty style to the Pro Hyper Classic Padded Sports Bra that is not found in other bras. The mesh back and multi color paneling rounds out the sporty style. Unfortunately, the Nike swoosh is placed in the top middle of the chest.
