Like all Derriere Equestrian undergarments, the racer-back-style Derriere Sportief Bra with padded straps features completely seamless areas, to minimise rubbing - the cup areas are therefore super-comfortable and soft to the touch. It offers full zipped entry for easy access - so no more getting ‘stuck’ when you try to remove your sports bra after a hot training session! As you’d expect from Derriere, a fashion-focussed product in a stunning colourway that you will be proud to show off at your exercise class or gym - the Sportief is no shrinking violet! Remember too that if you do choose to ride in a ‘normal’ bra that the standard strap formation can be extremely inconvenient and annoying, if the straps fall down beneath a show shirt, stock and jacket! So the racer-style is practical too

We knew that our female customers would be concerned about finding the right size sports bra when we developed the Sportief. Perhaps they have particularly generously-proportioned breasts; have previously had trouble finding a well-fitting, supportive sports bra for their horse riding endeavours? Or maybe they are nervous about purchasing sports lingerie online?

Whatever the reason, we knew that it would be imperative for consumers to be THRILLED with their Derriere Equestrian Sportief Bra, and that we had to ensure our customers purchased the right sized bra the first time around! Customer service is paramount to us, after all.

A hybrid bra

The DE Sportief Bra is a hybrid bra, delivering a fusion of sporting excellence with the ‘look’ of luxury lingerie. It’s designed to provide additional support during horse riding, minimise breast movement, alleviate discomfort, and reduce potential damage caused to ladies’ chest ligaments. As such it doesn’t come in single cup sizes, hence we have created seven separate sizes, detailed in our useful size guide. The current Derriere Equestrian range of seven bra options (garments sized one to seven), covers fourteen to eighteen common bra sizes, with the DE Sportief Plus range being launched in Autumn 2017; this will offer many more size options for the more well-endowed horse rider! Also ensuring we provide support for the various combinations in torso measurement combined with bra cup sizes.

Bra designs come in upwards of 35 sizes, to ensure we provide 100% customer satisfaction, bra support in sizing and design styles that work for all, we have staged the size and style launches. If we currently do not sell your individual bra size, do not fear, they are on their way!

DE Sportief Size Guide

Sports bras that are not sold in single cup sizes commonly come in ‘crop top’ sizes - perhaps in women’s dress sizes, or sometimes as ‘Small’, ‘Medium’, ‘Large’, etc. However, as our bra is so innovative and revolutionary, with its racer back, padded support and front opening, a traditional, limited size range would not work for us! And, when the exciting DE Sportief Plus range launches later this year, it will incorporate a further garment sizes, and a further cup sizes.

‘Flexibility’ in sizing

Our DE Sportief Bra has been designed to offer the lady horse rider several choices, in terms of breast support - if you would like normal breast compression effects, e.g. holding your boobs in place tightly, we recommend an exact size fit comparison to the size chart provided on our website. However, if you are seeking further compression, you could step down one size further if required.

For more of a shaping, encapsulation effect with less compression, you could go up a size, for more of a ‘comfort’, looser fit. Our product is so-unrestrictive under the bust that this flexibility in sizing is ‘built in’. Our size charts are presented as a size guide, not a definitive size comparison.

The reason we have this flexibility in sizing is because of the design of the bra. For example, the material and structure in the cupping system seam is designed to lift, separate, shape, and support the breasts. (Breast pain has been reportedly experienced by over 70% of women during exercise (Gehlsen & Albohm) - just one reason why we chose to create a product with no underwire, to help avoid rubbing and chaffing.) A further benefit of our unique design is that if you have a large cup size and a smaller ‘back’ size, you should still be able to ‘go down’ a size in order to find a suitable garment, due to the ‘giving’ nature of the comfortable bust band. It sits lower than most sports bras and also gives important thoracic, core support. Our Torso Jacquard gives a wide range of sizing flexibility, combined with exceptional comfort and luxury finish. You won’t want to take this bra off!

Derriere Equestrian’s MD, Claire Galer, says: “The DE Sportief sports bra is the style for the future; a fusion of compression and encapsulation creating the perfect hybrid design in sports bra technology. Demand for the DE Sportief has already grown at a phenomenal rate, and we are excited to see completion of phase one; we are already moving forward into second production, with the ‘Plus’ range, which we know our customers will be excited about.”
