I am always on the hunt for a good sports bra and when I had the opportunity to try the SKINS DNAmic Women’s Speed Crop, I was super excited.
What makes the SKINS DNAmic Speed Crop different?
From the website…with medium impact support and smooth elastic straps that won’t dig into your shoulders, the SKINS DNAmic Crop Top is built to take the discomfort and distraction out of your workout.
The fabrics are warp knitted to give superior performance and mixed with spandex to for a controlled compression. The fabrics also have a UV protection of 50+ and keep you dry through advance wicking properties.
Probably the biggest difference between the SKINS DNAmic Speed Crop and a normal sports bra is their muscle focus. Uniquely wrapping and supporting your key muscle groups to reduce movement and focus direction for less vibration in your muscles, less soft tissue damage and less soreness after exercise.
And the fact that in order to get the full benefits of the compression element you have to get the proper sizing use a BMI algorithm. Which means what exactly? Well basically you have to take your measurements to make sure you get the proper size.
They have both a size guide and a calculator on their site which makes it really easy to determine your size. I do recommend measuring yourself around the largest part of the chest because most women wear the wrong size sports bra and if I had ordered my bra size I would have had the wrong size and the Speed Crop would have been way too small.
So now that we’ve gotten through all the technical stuff, how does it feel on?
First off, I got the size medium and it was a perfect fit. I don’t feel like it’s too tight or too loose and when running I didn’t really feel like I had it on.
The elastic straps really don’t dig into the shoulders and I felt supported but not suffocated like I have in some compression sports bras.
The Speed Crop comes with removable cups for modesty.
How does it perform?
I ran in the Speed Crop a few times and I wore it while traveling. I didn’t have any issues, it kept me supported and felt great on.
My only complaint would be that the straps are super wide so it doesn’t fit well under my tanks and tees. If the straps could just be a little more narrow, I would say it’s perfect. I’m sure it would be fine if I was a sports bra only girl.
I personally like my Lululemon tops for their cooling properties, see I sweat a lot and for me, when my CRBs and Run Swiftlys get wet, they actually keep me cooler than skin alone. I have tested it out and this is what works for me. If you are a sports bra only girl, more power to you!
Now that I’m off my soap box, lol, let’s get back on track. As far as colors – the Speed Crop comes in currently comes in 6 colors: Black, Black/Limoncello (what I have), *Living Lines, *Midnight/Sage (both of which are on sale), Junkyard Geo, Lampone & Cerulean. The last 3 are new & very pretty shades of pink and blue.
So now that I’ve told you all about the SKINS DNAmic Speed Crop and how it worked for me who wants to win one for themselves?
