Sizes: XS-2XL, 1X-4X
Now, for the real star of the show: the Nike Alate Trace sports bra. From straps to band, this bra is a homerun, IMO.
As a 40G, I fall under 2XL according to Nike’s sports bra sizing chart. Since the Alate Trace bra comes in extended sizes, I could have sized up to a 1X for some extra coverage and wiggle room in the band, but I’m glad I didn’t. This bra fit perfectly snug right out the packaging. The V-neck silhouette really made my chest pop, a welcome change of style from the modest, full-coverage compression bras I usually work out in.
Nike touts the Alate Trace bra as a “lighter-support” bra, so I was shocked when I saw how lifted and secure it made my chest. No, it definitely doesn’t pass the jump test, but it fared fantastically when I wore it on a stroll to Prospect Park.
It’s made with a super-soft, super-stretchy moisture-wicking recycled nylon material that feels light to the touch. The double straps didn’t cut into my shoulders thanks to this, and because it has a sewn-in stretch of padding that stays put, I was able to walk around sans jacket without all of Bushwick seeing my nipples poking through. Another perk of the thin straps was that they looked great under all of my workout tanks; no unsightly, thick straps here.
