As someone who works from home and rarely leaves my apartment on weekdays, I basically live in elevated loungewear from Monday through Friday. Because of that, I’ve made a point to fill my wardrobe with a wide selection of tops and bottoms that are comfortable yet chic. One retailer I consistently rely on for said apparel staples is Old Navy. At least weekly, I check out the brand’s new arrivals. (I do so frequently because it’s no stranger to selling out of popular pieces in a matter of hours.) Recently, I scrolled by the Old Navy Light Support Dynamic Fleece Racerback Sports Bra ($27) and added it to my virtual shopping cart in the color Rare Earth and in my usual size, medium. Ahead, find out everything I love about the design, as well as what you should keep in mind before you add it to your loungewear collection.
What I Love About the Old Navy Fleece Shirred Sports Bra
What I love most about this sports bra is the shirred hem, which makes it look much more expensive than it actually is. After ordering it, I did a quick Google Search to see what similar options exist, and I couldn’t find anything quite like it, at least for under $50.
Another thing I adore is the material, which is different than it sounds. Unlike traditional fleece, this sports bra is made of dynamic fleece, which includes 69 percent cotton, 26 percent polyester, and 5 percent spandex. It’s smooth and soft to the touch, with just a bit of stretchiness.
What’s more, if you’re interested in making it a set, there are matching bottoms. See: the High-Waisted Roll-Down Snuggly Fleece Pajama Sweat Shorts ($20) and the Oversized Fleece Button-Down Cardigan Robe ($35). (I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for them to go on sale because I need both.)
What’s Worth Noting About the Old Navy Fleece Shirred Sports Bra
At the time of writing, this sports bra has solely positive reviews and a nearly perfect five-star rating. It does everything it promises: it offers light support excellent for low-impact exercise, a chic design, and just the right amount of support to take you from lounging on the couch to a late afternoon walk.
This sports bra has light support, but multiple shoppers — myself included — find the material thick and supportive. One reviewer wrote, “Really cute. Decently supportive; I’d argue more than light.” Another said: “So comfortable and surprising support for us bigger chested women!”
