I needed to switch sizes from a 'S' to 'M' and Emine went out of her way to be supportive! I have not been able to test the 'M' size yet, but from the quality of the 'S' I am sure I will enjoy it. I will definitely shop here again because they actually seem to care.
Easy to put on and take off... Not too much like wrestling with an octopus and no fiddly clasps. Support is good. Looks nice.
Best sport bra (and even only best bra) ever! I had trouble to find a bra which suits me well because I've a large back and this one is just perfect! The only thing is that I never want it to be in laundry because I love it so much haha ! Also, I've a sensitive back skin due to burns and it causes no discomfort at all so it's just perfect to me! Indoor, outdoor, core training... Don't hesitate, this is the one you were looking for :)
This tank top is such amazing material - super light, breathable, soft and comfy! Love the built in sports bra as well. This is probably my new favourite tank top to climb in! Highly recommend.
Honestly such a comfortable bra.....more comfortable then my lulu plus super cute and strappy in the back! I’m a large c/small d but have a small rib/waist and went with the medium. Super supportive!
Really great bra designed well for females with rock climbing bodies. The only little downside which could be improved or perhaps only affects my body type is the length of the bra. It could be sligthly longer under the breasts so that when I raise my arms when climbing it doesn't pull up and press on the bottom of my breasts. I find that I have to often pull it down so that it sits back into place. But it's not a deal-breaker. Definitely recommend it to my friends!
Thank you Emine for such a great and comfortable bra, I like to use it in the city as well.
I was afraid that S it will be a bit big for me but fits perfectly <3.
Your words and small gifts around made it precious and yes I love it! Andreea
I love it I love it I love it!! Finally a bra that I can wear all day, and forgetting I'm wearing it. I love the material and the shape, it feels super comfortable. Only wish there were more colors available :).
Amazing bra! Fits so well I don't even feel it's there and it is so supportive and pretty :) can't recommend this enough
I love this bra- it’s comfortable and supportive and washes beautifully, keeping its shape.
Also, I can take it off easily which isn’t always the case with other sports bras I’ve tried. Thank you for making this- just a brilliant, perfect for purpose, bit of kit.
Great quality but disappointing that the Large size is too tight for me around the ribs. I am quite tall and average build, I usually wear a medium. I am really surprised that a brand that is supposed to be all about female empowerment and inclusivity does not have an option to cater for my size, let alone someone bigger. I thought it was all about making room for my new lats!! they have nowhere to go!
My partner, Claudia, absolutely loves this Holdbreaker X sports bra. She's very particular about the fit of her climbing clothing and this ticks every box: comfortable, supportive, moves sweat effectively, looks great, easy to get on/off!
Great bit of kit, definitely worth investing in. Bring on the summer sending season!
Really love this. Way better than any other sports bra I've worn for climbing. It has a wider fit, for my wide back and the straps seem to distribute load so my shoulders arnt sore or achy.
I really like the fabric and the way it supports my chest.
Really worth the slightly higher than normal price tag.
The best climbing bra I ever had!
I absolutely love this sports bra! I noticed in the last years my old running sports bras starting cutting into my ribcage. This one is wider around the lats so perfect for a climber‘s torso. Incredibly comfortable while still being supportive. When I first tried it on I thought it might be too unsupportive because I was so used to the super tight other sports bras, but this one gives all of the support without any of the tightness. Highly highly recommend
Fits perfectly! Doesn't cut into my chest or lats! Ultimate comfort for climbing. I'm hoping they release coloured ones!
Really comfy, light and good looking. I really loved the idea of giving women's muscles more space, and i wasn't disappointed. Became really quickly my favorite sports bra!
The BEST BRA for strong women!
I've been climbing for 15+ years, the clothes I started climbing in stopped fitting me when my back, shoulders and arms started growing as I was getting stronger. Sometimes the fabric was so tight that I actually started sweating more because my armpits couldn't breathe. When I put on the HoldBreaker X - I feel the support but I don't feel it. Which was weird at first because I always feel uncomfortable in other bras, they are too tight, difficult to put on and take on etc. With the X it's just effortless and it's quickly become my favourite bra. I've worn it every time I've gone climbing since I bought it and it's still holding shape and form. Thank you HoldBreaker for making a product with us women in mind!
I like the fabric. Even on hot days, it's still possible to get easily get out of the bra. In similar bras that's always not easy. I also love it for kayaking, mountaineering and all other sport acitivities you need your arms moving... Great stuff!
Must have - not only for climbing!
Most comfortable fabric! I wear it for all kinds of sport (mountaineering, running, cycling, freetime...) I can really only recommend it. And it keeps its form - for more than a year now. Link to my longer review: https://jeanninezubler.com/2019/04/02/produkttest-holdbreaker-x/
My MUST have gear on BIG WALLS
Multi pitch climbing is my favourite. I have spent many nights sleeping on big walls. What makes this my favourite piece of gear is that it dries quickly which is super important when the sun goes down, I feel dry and warm. On warm days, I get sweaty climbing and my other bras take a long time to dry and when the sun goes down, I am usually left feeling wet and cold. Not with the HoldBreaker X – it’s really made my climbing experience so much better. This is not even mentioning how comfortable it is, functional, practical and awesome looking!
With Holds Breaker X bra I feel like I don't have any bra... you can forgot that you wearing it.
The most comfortable bra, which I have ever been wearing. Very soft and nice fabric and perfect shape. No bulging, no squeezing and no digging. Definitely recommend!
Literally wear it all the time
Love this bra!!! I wear it all the time everywhere! Fits my lats perfectly, I've swam in it, climbed in it, basically just choose to live in it. Love that it's black and I tell everyone how much I love it! It's held up to climbing all over Utah and it takes a beating while still holding its shape. I get tons of compliments on it and will buy another one soon!
A dream come true
I love climbing in the Holdbreaker X. It's exactly what I've been looking for in a climbing sports bra. The fabric is so soft on the inside and durable on the outside. I don't have to worry about it snagging on the rock! I've worn it for over 8 hours on several days and basically forgot I was wearing it - it's that comfortable. I don't think I'll ever be able to climb in anything else!
Love the HoldbreakerX
Sitzt perfekt und angenehm, auch wenn man einen breiteren Rücken hat! Sieht zu dem auch noch sehr cool aus mit dem schönen Rückendesigne!
Is it even there?
Loving the HoldBreaker X! The first time wearing it I kept on trying to readjust it because I couldn't feel it the way I usually feel sports bras, just to discover it was actually still exactly where it is supposed to be. :-)
Also it somehow manages to have thin-ish straps that still look great on muscular backs :-)
Yes! Finally! A bra that looks pretty but doesn't sacrifce practicality over aesthetics. Super excellent, would certainly reccommend :D
HB X, The Bra to Send In
I’m a climber out in California and am so happy to have heard of this product through BoulderingDabrats on YouTube. The sizing is true to fit, and the product itself is comfortable, durable, and breathable! This bra is perfect for climbing but I will definitely also be using it during my yoga sessions. I highly recommend it to lady crushers who are looking for a sports bra that is stylish, high quality, and just freakin’ perfect for getting your boobies up those projects.
Amazing bra and amazing customer service.
This bra is so incredibly comfortable. It doesn't dig into any specific points like other sports bras I've worn either. Climbing in this bra doesn't leave my back feeling constricted or my neck dug into either. Definitely worth a buy.
Additionally, they sent me a few extra goodies in the mail due to easter weekend. Shipping was delayed by a day or so but I ordered planning on that slight delay. Even so, they went above and beyond with taking the time to package all that up and send it out to me. Definitely earned a consistent customer :)
A rare, cute but comfortable sports bra
This bra seems to be great for all types of activities. I really like the soft, quick drying material, and that it looks good when paired with a backless or semi backless shirt. I’m a climber with well developed muscles, and it fits those too. Thanks, holdbreaker. Good job.
I am so stoked on this bra! The fit, the material, the flexibility and functionality are superior to anything I’ve owned. Amazing support with ultimate comfort! Looks great for sport or casual tops. Thank you for making a quality product, I have been recommending it to all my friends!
Great for all outdoor activity!
I prefer a sports bra over a bra in everyday life and this one is my go to. Which means especially when I go climbing it’s coming with me. My favorite aspects of the bra are the material and the X straps in the back. The material is smooth and soft, kind of like bathing suit material, and dries quickly when I am out pulling hard all day. I am really happy about the X straps and that they don’t cut too close to your neck. I tested them out this week with a 46L pack on to see if the straps would be noticeable where they cross, but they weren’t at all!
I would recommend looking at the sizing guide, as I usually wear a small but in this sports bra I wear a medium.
Worth the money for the quality.
Worth every penny
About the #holdbreakerX it is P E R F E C T to spill it out for Instagram: it is #perfection This garment surely holds up to all the promises made by @holdbreaker
The material is smooth and soft to touch. It has nice stretch, but also stays put. I love that the straps give some serious hold and are not only for decoration (like I know from a lot of other sport bras/tops) I was able to make my moves without thinking about “will it crawl up, will it shift..?” I felt save in my case the X on my back is getting a bit mixed up - you can see it on the second pic - but I guess that’s normal, as it adjusted to my movements perfectly. ♀️ since the fabric is thick on top (lined with a thinner fabric) I believe that when #holdbreaker is ready to bring on some colourful versions and use the same quality of fabric, they might just be the company to create a #climbingbra that won’t be ‘see through’ even if they might choose yellow or lime green to be on their list next.#hinthint .
All in all I wish I will grow more confident to show off this piece of perfection when I climb. I’ll be honest here: I just took the shirt off for some pictures, but I usually climb with a shirt on. #braveonsocialmediabuttimidinreallife
Worth the hype!
I was really excited to get my hands on this bra when I saw it's release. No bra is ever designed with climbing in mind, nor the figure of female climbers. When I received it, I was not disappointed! It was so extremely comfortable, yet held in all the right places (including my large lats!) I was really impressed with the quality. Not to mention that it's incredibly stylish and shows off the back well, I got loads of complements on first wear. Make sure you follow the size guide, as I'm usually a small, but wear medium for this bra.
Beautiful and yet so comfortable!
I absolutely love this bra! You never have to adjust it or worry about it moving around, but you still feel free and kind of forget you are wearing it! Highly recommend!!
Train and send in comfort and style
HoldBreaker have nailed it. The X offers gentle yet firm support without any pulling/tightness/marks/bulgy bits. The design is elegantly flattering and very fetching (no garish patterns and, personally, I prefer plain colours). It gets on with the business of being a sports bra to climb in without shouting about it. The best thing about the X for me, however, is the fabric; it feels as soft against your skin as a gentle caress. The time spent by HB on sourcing exactly the right material is one of the keys to this product and it’s this devotion to detail that underpins the quality of the HB brand. The X will fit your climber’s “frame” perfectly so you can train and send in comfort and style.
My new favourite climbing bra
Love my holdbreaker X! Looks good, feels good. I love the cool design on the back and the material feels so soft and breathable against my skin, I forget I’m wearing it. Have tried so many sports bras in the past and they are either too soft and not supportive enough or too tight in an effort to be supportive and leave me with achy shoulders and strap marks at the end of the day. But with the X, they’ve hit the mark. My chest has grown with pregnancy but it’s still super comfy and no side boob!!! It’s been promoted to all round workout bra too because it does such a good job at keeping everything in place. It’s so cool looking too that I’d be comfortable wearing it alone on those hot summer climbing holidays. And feel amazing at the same time! Thanks holdbreaker for this great addition to my climbing wardrobe! Xx
Every detail of the bra is gorgeous
The HoldBreaker X covers my body softly and doesn't cause discomfort. It doesn't restrict my movements while climbing as if it doesn’t exist at all. Most of all, it doesn’t leave a mark on my body. It also makes me feel like I’m a more special and powerful woman.
I pretty much forgot I was wearing it
My past experience with ‘sports bras’ has been that you either get comfort but not enough support OR you get support but in a compressed, motion-limiting way.
The Holdbreaker X is so comfortable that I pretty much forgot I was wearing it, but it also gives great support! Those two things make it an excellent piece of kit. But I loved the style too and even my (usually oblivious) partner commented on how cool it looks.
This is a great top and you can tell how much research and thought went into its design.
Added bonus: the minimalist, eco friendly packaging (no plastic!)
Best Product Out There For Female Climbers
I love the HoldBreaker X bra. For me, when I'm climbing, it's vital that my clothes are comfortable whilst still supportive. This product completely meets those standards and goes beyond that by also looking good and not being sweaty!
The high quality materials make it feel very breathable but not flimsy at all. The straps are really trendy and show off shoulder muscles well - don't want hard training going unnoticed!
Overall, I think it's the best product out there for female climbers as all of our climbing needs have been taken into account!
I love my HoldBreaker X
It has quickly become my favourite sports bra. The design of the straps means that there's ultimate flexibility for stretching out, which is great as I'm also a rower. It's so comfortable and looks great whatever I'm doing, it's one of those bits of clothing that makes you feel more powerful just by wearing it.
