THE GOOD

  • Soft bamboo/cotton material
  • Reversible for 2-in-1 style
  • No chafe

THE BAD

  • Not moisture-wicking
  • Light compression

THE VERDICT

The Endurance bra is one of the more comfortable bras in the test group and is a top choice for the eco-conscious consumer. A proprietary blend of organic cotton and bamboo is soft and comfortable. It is not the most compressive or breathable sport bras compared to others in the test group, and is best worn for light exercise.

FULL REVIEW

Comfort
The proprietary blend of organic cotton and bamboo in the Tasc Endurance bra is soft and feels good against the skin. That combined with a traditional cut of a sports bra makes the endurance bra a comfortable choice. 

Fit/Mobility 
One of the key features of the Endurance bra is its comfortable fit. The bra moves with you as you exercise without chafing. 

Support 
As a traditional sports bra style the Tasc Endurance bra offers good coverage, however it is the least compressive bra with the lightest support in the test group. A wide bottom band and sturdy back are enough support for light exercise and running. 

Breathability 
The material is comfortable in most temperatures, however the organic cotton and bamboo blend does not stand up to other bras in the test for breathability in hot or humid conditions. The bra holds moisture and shows sweat marks on lighter color fabrics. 

Style/Design 
Made from a blend of organic cotton, bamboo and spandex, the Tasc Energy bra is redefining how a sports bra should be made. The proprietary material is the most eco-conscious of the bras tested. The combination of bright colors and fun prints are reversible for a fun 2-in-1 style.

How We Tested It

Fifteen bras were tested for a duration of three months over hundreds of miles on dirt trails, roads, and the track. Women with A to B cup sizes wore the running bras for easy paced runs, hard effort workouts, long runs, and at the gym. The tester’s five top scoring running bras are featured in the test group.
