Tried and tested: Berlei High Performance Sports Bra

April 19, 2016

This high impact sports bra is a favourite of tennis star, Serena Williams. The unique Berlei ultra sonic cup panels minimise bulk and maximise support, whilst finely padded straps can be made into a multiway by crossing over for improved support. Find out if it passed our stringent testing…


This bra is designed to be as supportive as your best running bra only more so. We tested it for all kinds of running from a gentle jog to full-on sprints on the track and it’s good – really good.



  • The unique Berlei ultrasonic cup really prevents bounce well.
  • The encased elastic straps are really comfy and reduce chafing.
  • The adaptive sports shoulder strap has two power zones which gear up power when you start moving – which probably explains why it worked well for sprinting as well as jogging.
  • This bra comes in the fashion forward print as shown or more classic black.


This is a great sports bra for all sizes, but works especially well for larger cups. Bounce is greatly reduced and importantly it’s really comfortable. The only downside? Well there isn’t one really, but some people may prefer slightly more coverage.
