LA Gear Bra Crop Top
Advantages: Price, looks, comfort
Disadvantages: Light support only
I needed a reasonably cheap crop top with some chest support for low impact sports such as cycling and hill walking, something which would give me a bit of comfort and be breathable. I went for the LA Gear Bra Crop Top purely because I liked the look of it and I found it for a brilliant price in my local Sports Soccer. Here's my review based on 18 months' ownership.
**Price and Availability**
The LA Gear Bra Crop Top is available on the high street most notably at Sports Soccer where I purchased it in the sale for an incredible £2.99. The average price seems to be £3 - £7 which is fair for a sport bra top.
It's a typical sport bra top style with a closed racer style back exposing the shoulders, scoop neck (not too low) on the front with the LA logo stitched onto the fabric and low under arm holes for comfort. It looks pretty good and this is something you can wear alone or under another item of keep fit clothing such as a sport vest.
It's available in white or black, I went for the black as I felt it wouldn't age as quickly by greying over time in the wash. I'm glad I made that decision as 18 months on after considerable use it's as new.
I'd say the support the LA Gear Bra Crop Top provides is classed as light and is best suitable for minimal impact sports, I use it for cycling, hill walking, aerobics and skipping. You could also use it for spin class, yoga etc. I find it very comfortable and it has a good feel to it, letting the skin breathe and not get over sweaty, maintaining comfort and reducing any irritation.
Yes, I'd highly recommend the LA Gear Bra Crop Top, especially for the price, why pay more when it works so well? In fact at that price you could buy one of each colour, use them for travel, carry a spare and so on. I used mine during pregnancy to provide a little more comfortable support before I needed to start using a maternity bra, so it's certainly had a number of varied uses for me!
I'll give the LA Gear Bra Crop Top a solid four out of five - if you were doing something more high impact like jogging, tennis and so on you'll need something with more support (and likely need to spend a little more) however as a budget sport bra top which is a good all rounder I highly recommend the LA Gear Bra Crop Top especially if you can get it around £3!
Summary: Worth it for everyday sports use
