Lume Six Cirra High Impact Sports Bra Review- A New Featherweight Light Breed of Sports Bra

Article by Dominique Winebaum

 Lume Six Cirra High Impact Sports Bra ($120) 


As a runner, I gravitate towards high-end and supportive bras with the tendency to hop from one brand to another in search of the perfect sports bra.  I was really excited to try a new brand - and new breed of sports bras - after Margaux Elliott, the founder of Lume Six, offered to send me a sample.  

Featuring a lovely package, the Lume Six sports bras are available in two different styles: Cirra (high impact) and Alta (medium impact), in several attractive color choices with luminous effect and are offered in extended sizes, from XS to XXL , along with different band size options.  

I received the Cirra High Impact sport bra in size medium (34D) with a small band, in color ocean.  The Cirra is available in both lightly lined, and unlined, the latter is only available in black and is even more breathable, though less supportive.  

A racer back style bra that requires no adjustment and fits just right, off the box, the Lume Six sports bras are distinctly lightweight - featherweight light - especially as high impact bras.  Incredibly sleek, in contrast to bulky supportive sports bras, the bras are made with “DreamSupport fabric,” a technical textured fabric that provides both compression and support.  

Additional support is achieved via the light lining, which is barely noticeable, but well worth it for my bra size. The fabric is Italian and made from recycled materials.

The sleek design is achieved via the “Dream Support fabric” and the seamless construction creating a supportive fit that is extremely comfortable.  There were zero points of friction and the bra was highly breathable during my test runs.  

The Halo elastic band, which is available in different widths, is amazingly comfortable and keeps the bra in place.  A minimalist approach for a maximalist supportive bra and where less is more. 

I definitely noticed the difference in my runs, both in terms of support and comfort.  A a new addition to my activewear, I plan on wearing my Lume Six bra for a wide range of activity, including hiking and nordic skiing. 

The Lume Six sports bras are pricey, yet as per specs, they are supposedly more durable, and well worth it in my opinion.
