I’ve never really had a problem with my sports bra being too heavy, so the fact that this one claimed to be the world’s lightest sports bra wasn’t all that important to me. However, the fact that the Anita Active Air had no underwiring yet was still the shape of a normal bra with hooks and eyes had its appeal.
The bra cups are made of two layers of fabric: one solid pink which has almost no stretch to it, and an outer mesh layer which also does not stretch. The straps are wide over the tops of the shoulders and slightly padded, and taper into where they join the bra at the front, and into the wide elastic at the back.
A wide elastic band goes round the body, with a slightly textured, almost fluffy inside against the skin. Side panels are made of a different grey mesh to the cups, and are very stretchy. Where the cups meet the underarms, there is a vertical stretch strip, which stretches along the length but not the width of the strip – presumably providing some of the support.
The bra opens out completely at the back – this is not an over-the-head bra or crop top. There are three bust circumferences positions each secured with three hooks and eyes, making it quite substantial feel but distributing the weight across a broader area.

Why do you ask for registration to view some articles?
We get asked this a lot. The simple reason is that content is increasingly expensive to commission, create and publish and where once the cost of this process was mostly covered by advertising revenues, now that’s no longer the case. We increasingly rely on our paying members to keep Singletrack going and we’d love you to become one of our supporters. however, that’s not we are asking right now. You can read the rest of this feature simply by registering an account on our site.
How does being a free, registered user help you?
A good question and it’s a bit complicated. It’s NOT so we can sell your email details, or even to send you newsletters. Our last newsletter was sent out in early 2018 – we really should send out a few. It’s not so we can show you more ads either – in fact when you register we show you fewer ads. The reason is actually because registered users come back and look at more of our content. They start interacting with us and posting comments of their own and joining in forum discussion. That level of interaction is what eventually feeds our new subscriber numbers and so for us the journey to gaining new subscribers is to start by encouraging you to simply register an account. We hope that the benefits that will bring to you will be the first step in you joining us as a paying Singletrack Premier supporter.
