Waist Band Support Level Categories
There are 4 levels of compression for waist band support, ranging from adjustable to high compression. The compression you need will depend highly on the intensity, duration and the goal of your activity.

Bra Support Level Categories
Our bra support level ranges from light to high support. Each category is aimed to assist you in your activities while referencing your cup size for the best fit.
Light: Light support bras are built to conceal, they are designed for low impact activities such as yoga and stretching. Lightweight and breathable design offers gentle compression and support with minimal coverage. Women with smaller busts may be able to perform more intense activities in low support sports bras without discomfort. If you have a larger bust and want to minimize movement, we recommend using a high support bra.

Medium: Medium support bras provide the coverage, lift and breathability needed for moderate activities such as hiking and golf. These bras can also be worn for low impact activities if you prefer more support during exercise. Women with smaller busts may find these bras provide sufficient support for running and other high bounce activities. If you have a larger bust and want to minimize movement, we recommend using a high support bra.
Use: Good for medium impact activity like weightlifting, jogging, and cycling.
High: These bras offer comfort and complete support to prevent distractions while exercising due to the compressive design that presses the breasts against the chest to minimize movement. High support bras are designed with high-intensity training in mind. High support bras offer the most supportive fit and are a good choice for women with larger busts or women who are doing high-bounce activities.
