Victoria's Secret Incredible
Bottom Line

An extra dash of sex appeal makes the Victoria's Secret Incredible a great option for women who want a sports bra that's both stylish and supportive. The padded cups and underwire give chests a boost while creating an enviable shape, reviewers say. The Incredible also delivers on support during high-impact workouts. However, DD cups and above may need a little more compression to feel secure, and many reviewers say the bra is hard to wrestle on.

Comfort

Feels good, as long as you can put it on. Made of nylon, polyester and Spandex, the Victoria's Secret Incredible sports bra has Body-Wick fabric and breathable padding meant to keep women dry and cool during workouts. Reviewers say the bra delivers, and they also say the cushioned underwire doesn't poke or prod. The Incredible also features wide, padded straps, a cushioned closure and a seam-free design to cut down on chafing. Though they find the straps comfortable, some owners wish they were adjustable. Several reviewers complain the bra is extremely difficult to put on -- "Like putting myself in a choke hold," according to one -- and wish for more stretch to make the task easier.

Support

Underwire helps amp up support. Victoria's Secret says the Incredible sports bra provides "maximum support" for high-impact workouts, including running and boxing. Reviewers say the bra's blend of compression and encapsulation does just that, reporting minimum bounce in workouts ranging from running to yoga and cross-training. The padded underwire also helps keep each breast lifted and separated, they say. However, some warn that DD cups and above might find they still need a bit more support than the Incredible delivers. The bra is available in band sizes from 32 to 38 and cup sizes from B to DDD. While most owners say it runs true to size, a handful say that's not the case and recommend trying it on in the store.

Style

Sexy for a sports bra. Reviewers say the Victoria's Secret Incredible is the ultimate pick for women who want a sports bra with a little wow factor. A deep V-neckline and racerback with a keyhole give the Incredible a bit more sex appeal than most sports bras and make it a stylish option for going shirt-free. Reviewers are also impressed with the silhouette they get from the padded underwire and cups, and they appreciate the wide range of vibrant patterns and colors. There are no complaints of headlights. However, a few women say they flash a bit too much cleavage in this bra, especially during activities that require a lot of bending.
