Finding the right bra for cycling can be a bit of a mission. Whether it’s insufficient ventilation or too much compression, there are loads of sports bras out there which don’t answer a female rider’s needs, and searching through the jungle of seemingly endless sports bra options for one which will work for you on the bike can be daunting and time consuming.
Luckily for female riders in search of flattering, comfortable support, Castelli has made two very nice cycle specific sports bras, the Rosso Corsa Light Bra and the Rosso Corsa Support Bra. Castelli was actually the first company to make a cycle specific sports bra, recognising that existing models did not work as well as they could for cyclists, and acting to redress this.
Designed with advice from Castelli’s women’s pro team, the Rosso Corsa Light Bra provides moderate support without overly compressing, with a focus on breathability and comfort. It is constructed from a high wicking fabric to quickly move moisture to the surface, and mesh side panels provide additional breathability. Its cross back design is comfortable and doesn’t dig in.
If you think you might need a bit more support, the Rosso Corsa Support Bra (designed for C and D cup sizes) might be a better option.
