Handful Y Back Bra Review
- Made for casual fitness & fashion
- Comfortable fabric and fit
- Removable pads included
- Moderate support for C/D cups
- Plush fabric holds some moisture
The Handful Y Back Bra succeeds in it’s mission to function for sport and for fashion, but the tester found it most appealing to wear during lounge time at home or leisurely walks. Although comfortable and cut, the bra is not supportive enough for C/D cups to wear during high-impact activities like running.
The Handful Y Back Bra is high on the comfort scale, with a poly and spandex fabric combination that makes the piece very soft on the skin. Wide straps sit flush against the shoulders with flat seams.
The fit of the Handful Y Back Bra is more spacious than the more compressive bra styles in this test, and a wearer will be able to have full range of motion without any constriction or skin rubbing.
For C/D cups, the Handful Y Back Bra seems more suited for activities with less chest impact. The tester found a smaller size helped with more compression, but the bra still did not hold enough for complete comfort while running.
The material on theHandful Y Back Bra is made to be quick-dry, although the slightly thicker fabric held onto more moisture than other bras in the test.
The Handful Y Back Bra is all about style and function. The feminine design has gathered fabric at the center of the chest, and a unique crochet detail on the shoulder straps. It’s a low cut bra that will go under workout or casual wear, and the overall look is versatile to complement either an athletic or leisure outfit.
How We Tested It
