The bra is amazing support for what it is and the convertible straps are a must for a curvy girl.
I own several of the bras and had to give the bikini’s a try. I shouldn’t have been surprised. Just as comfortable as the bras. Good support with a nice hug of snug without pinching in or causing bulges. And for workouts…it breathes! I took a chance and purchased several and am glad I did.
Absolutely wonderful washes up great. Have bought multiple pairs since my first purchase.
Comfortable, doesn't lose shape or support after a full day. Plus it stays dry after a good work out
Tossing all my other underwear, because I’ll never wear them again.
I absolutely love this bra and this company. The bra is comfortable and supportive without being so constraining that it makes it hard to breath when you're working out. I also love how much care and quality they put into their bras. And to top it all off, their customer service is 10/10.
this bra is very comfortable. The fabric is firm yet very flexible for great comfort and fit. I love that its made from wool that is from humanely cared for sheep. I bought 2 more so I have 4 now and I bought 2 for my daughter and she says its the best bra shes ever had!
I love these bras so much this is my second order, so I have one for every day. They’re comfortable, and I can use them year round for a number of activities.
The bra definitely met expectations based on the description as well as reviews and recommendations of others. Comfortable, with just enough support for my 44inch (36 DDD/G) measurements. I tried both X-Large and XXL. The X-Large worked best for me, providing just enough compression, similar to a sports bra fit that I prefer. XXL didn’t seemed too loose without enough support.
Branwyn, thanks for adding XXL size. I had some XLs and the leg bands were just too tight. These fit perfect and they are a dream. So comfortable and breathable! I hope they hold their shape and wear well - if they do, I am converting my entire underwear drawer!
This must be the 20th bralette I’ve ordered over the years.. I absolutely love them.. living in the tropics it’s essential to find ways to stay cool.. the bras are very comfortable and well made.. my only request would be the same style in a racer back.. if your on the fence about ordering just do it..you will not be disappointed!
The bralette is comfortable and truly a keeper.
I was eager to try these bras, as so many reviews were positive. They are well-made, and seem very durable. However, the sizing seems to run small. I would recommend ordering up by one size (I normally am a small or medium, but the medium size I ordered feels like a small). The fabric seems to be a bit itchy (which may improve with repeated washings), but the bras are supportive and well designed.
I was hooked on the essential bralette from the moment I put it on, but I gave it the 3-day, sweat-it-out, air-it-out, wear-it-for-everything-before-washing-it test anyway. It was comfortable, warm, and supportive and looked great under all my knit tops. It did not stretch out after 3 days of wear. It washed up beautifully (in the washer on cold in a lingerie bag) and did not take forever to dry hanging up in the chilly laundry room. The sizing recommendation was spot on. I have been waiting for this bra since Ibex stopped making their version years ago - which is why I just ordered three more!
It is soft and fits well. It is not a bra to go running in.. I am concerned about the BPA’s recently found in sports bras, so I might wear this under one of those for athletic type activities. This is a very comfortable bra and I look forward to putting it on in the morning. I forget I am wearing it during the day, it is that comfortable. I bought the large, I am a 38b. I LOVE wool and I have spent 100’s of dollars on other bras that end up in the bra drawer of shame..but I will be buying more of these.I like the wide straps. And the wide back panel. It might roll a bit at the band, but it isn’t a bother especially knowing it is a healthy alternative to other bras made out of hazardous material.
Seriously. It's the best bra I've ever worn. Everyday wear, sports wear, you name it. Get it all sweaty and all it needs is an air-out.
Branwyn listens and come out with the Essential Busty Bra which is fantastic!
Wicks sweat! Smooths the back and sides! Super comfortable!!!! Love Love Love!
As a bustier gal, I had doubts about no padding. This bra has surpassed my every expectation, and I don’t want to take it off. It’s a must buy for everyone who dreams of comfort and bliss in their sports bra experience!
I should start by mentioning that I had ordered one a long time ago, and I didn’t like anything about the way it fit. I am gearing up for a hike in the spring, and some of Branwyn’s new products showed up in a search. So, knowing they are a relatively young small business that listens to customer feedback, I wanted to try one of their products again. I read every, single review on the item I was interested in, and also for the bralette. The reviews inspired me to try again, and I’m glad I did.
It’s soft and comfortable, does not itch at all, is stretchy enough that it fits great, and I like that the straps can be adjusted in multiple ways. The color I bought, Luna, is lovely, and I’m delighted that it held its shape wonderfully, and did not shrink at all, after washing.
I’m happy, and can’t wait to get another one!
This is my second Branwyn bralette. Got my first about a year ago and love it. It’s comfortable and stays in place all day. The fabric is great. It wears well whether I am hiking, skiing or dressing up. Great concept and great execution.
I was so shocked at how comfortable and supportive this bra. I thought the thinner straps would dig Into my shoulders, but they didn’t at all. I order a second one after wearing the first for 10 hours and hardly noticing I was wearing a bra. As someone who is a 40DD, that is not a statement I can make very often.
I waited for the restock of the XL black thongs and am so happy with my purchase. I am gradually phasing out all my underwear to merino and these fit great and the fabric is amazing.
The Essential Busy Bras are amazing all-round comfortable tops with good support - 100% recommend as a crop top or bra. They are nicely low-profile (so you can wear them under basically any shirt!)
The bras Falwell. I haven’t tried the panties yet
