I usually wear the panache underwired sports bra. It's mostly fab, except that the hooks have loosened and are scratching my back. Not really a problem as I can sew them back down, but I think I need another on standby. I've previously had a Freya one, not the moulded version, which was great for the gym but rubbed on the scarring I have between my boobs (well, just underneath) when running. I should probably just buy another panache, but the moulded Freya has some lovely colourways and is £10 cheaper. Does anyone have it, is it good enough support for running and is the strap soft? Or has anyone tried both and can give me a comparison between the two? Thanks in advance.

The moulded Freya sports bra is fantastic.

I have the moulded Freya underwired crop top style, the moulded Freya "ordinary" sports bra and the Panache. They're my top three sports bras by a LONG way - and I've tried pretty much everything in an E cup and above.

I love all three but think perhaps the moulded Freya sports bra is the best of the bunch. It's incredibly comfortable, gives a nice shape under clothes, doesn't rub, and dries out v quickly (not like the non-wired Freyas, which are nowhere near as good).

It has excellent support for running, it's my race bra of choice, and I've done several half marathons in mine. I also wear it for high impact gym stuff (circuits that involve lots of jumping, for example).

So yes, go for the moulded Freya. Just to confirm we're talking about the same one, it's this one...though the crop top style is also worth a look IMO.

Yes it's that one. Thank you, I'll order right now! I know I'll never show it to anyone, but I always like them to be interestingly coloured!

Hope you get on well with it, OP! I like mine to be fancy colours as well - my newest one is a veritable rainbow.
