Berlei High Performance Sports Bra | Product Review

By Carol Cooke AM, Gold Medal Paralympian and She Science Ambassador


HP white New sI have always loved the Berlei Bras and have been purchasing them for a number of years now.  So when I went into She Science in search of a few more it was no suprise I ended up in the Berlei bras again.  Ordinarily I would have chosen the same bra I had always been in, but was pointed in the direction of the Berlei High Performance Bra by Tish.

I was a bit confused at first as it looked more like an everyday bra than a Sports Bra!  But I was assured that it was in fact a supportive Sports Bra, so I decided to give it a try.  From the moment I put it on the comfort and support I felt was fantastic and was thrilled that it looked great too!


I’m pretty active during the day even when I’m not training and I have found that this Berlei bra is great for wear at any time and as it has the look and feel of a normal bra I have been wearing it under even my work clothes.

As I am fairly busty I don’t like straps that are thin and seem to cut into your shoulders but with the High Performance Bra there are nice wide straps that sit perfectly and provide great support.  The sides of the bra are fairly wide so also give you that “tucked in” feeling…nothing bulging out under my arms!

This bra is perfect for wear at any time of the day, whether you are running, cycling, going to the gym or just want a bit of extra support under your t-shirts, work clothes or evening wear!
