Tried and tested: Asics Zero Distraction Bra

February 28, 2017
T&T-Asics

The Zero Distraction Bra is a new launch for Asics and a lot of research has gone into it’s design, so Sportsister’s Stephanie put it through it’s paces – so, what’s the verdict? Does it make our love List?

T&T-Asics

With the artic temperatures outside I headed to the gym. I was also testing some leggings and a top and overall the kit was comfortable brilliant quality fabric. It looks great, the bra performed well and I love the tights in particular.

Zero Distraction Bra, £48.00

The advanced zero distraction, high support running bra is designed to keep everything in place through a combination of extra strength fabric and support construction to reduce bounce and prevent downward and upward movement.

Interior mesh molded cups form to the body for a more comfortable fit, while seperating the breast to offer encapsulated support. This combination should do away with the need to double bra solution that many runners prefer.

Stephanies view:

I tested a 34C, my usual size and felt really well supported for high-impact movement, when I first tried it on I jumped up and down and there was hardly any movement.

I’ve never gone down the double bra route, but I know lots of women with bigger boobs do – this bra does that job though, you get the incapsulation and compression in two layers, so it works really well.

My only minor gripe is that the front fabric of the bra (the double layer) seemed a little bit loose on me – but this could have been due to my personal size/shape. Overall, however, I think it is a great bra.

Pros:

  • Comfortable fit but high-impact support
  • Molded cups for bounce control
  • Cushioned adjustable straps front and back
  • Mesh zones for extra breathability

Cons:

  • The layer fabric at the front of the bra looks little bit loose – but this could just be the fit on me

Leg Balance Tight, £60.00

These classic tights are great – really comfy and supportive. Details include, compression panels to help prevent fatigue and aid recovery, a key pocket and reflective trim. The only downside is that they were not quite fully opaque mid-squat.

Capsleeve top, £25.00

This is a simple, yet flattering top with a great cut and design. The fabric is comfortable and soft with traditional sweat-wicking qualities. The only downside really is that being  5ft 10, I would prefer a slightly longer top
