Maaree Solidarity High-Impact Sports Bra review

A sports bra that offers support and dries quickly. What's the catch?

Cycling Weekly Verdict

A sports bra that really does combine support with quick-drying properties. The Overband style seems to maximise cleavage which won't be a winner for everyone, but it does work and this sports bra easily passes the 'jump test'. I had to really ratchet up the straps to get the fit right, so perhaps this could do with some minor adjustment - but the only real pitfall is the price.

Finding a sports bra that is compatible with cycling, but still offers enough support, is no easy feat.

Cycling is quite unique in that windchill and long off-season base miles make for a strange mixture of high body temperature (and therefore sweat) plus the tendency to bundle up on layers. Any fabric against the skin needs to wick sweat and be breathable, but a sports bra also needs to be supportive - and supportive fabric is often thick, compressive, and not quick drying.
