Too Small

These leggings felt awesome but they were too small. I usually wear a small in everything but I couldn’t get these over my quads. I gave them to my daughter and she absolutely loves them! When they come back in stock in medium, I’ll get another pair because the material is perfect. If it weren’t for the size I would give 5 stars

Material lacks

Fit great, thick, squat proof. But the material is just terrible. Everything sticks to it-lint etc. Maybe my expectations are different after the spandex BP leggings. These are just not my favorite.

Kinda a let down

I’ve purchased from born primitive before so maybe my expectations were a little high but these pants are see through and they slide and move around so bad. The waist band folds over on itself and the whole thing should be more stretchy

Measure Your Rib Cage:

Measure around your rib cage just under your bust. Round down to the closest inch. This is your rib cage measurement, which you’ll need to figure out your band and cup size.

Figure out your band size:

Take your rib cage measurement from step 1 and read across the chart below to find your band size

Rib Cage Measurement Band Size
25" - 27" 30
27" - 29" 32
29" - 31" 34
31" - 33" 36
33" - 35" 38
35" - 37" 40
37" - 39" 42

Figure out your cup size - This is a 2-step process:

First, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Keep the tape straight across your back. Round up to the nearest whole number. This is your bust measurement.

Now, subtract your rib cage measurement (step 1) from your bust measurement (step 3). The difference in inches is your suggested cup size. If you’re between sizes, round up.

Bust Size Minus
 Rib Cage Size
Your Cup Size
3" AA
4" A
5" B
6" C
7" D
8" DD
9" E

Calculate Your Size:

First, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Keep the tape straight across your back. Round up to the nearest whole number. This is your bust measurement.

Now, measure your rib cage. Subtract your bust measurement from your rib measurement. The difference in centimeters is your suggested cup size. If you’re between sizes, round up.

2.5 CM= A | 5 CM= B | 7.5 CM= C | 10 CM= D | 12.5 CM= DD | 15 CM= E

Fit Guidelines:

Every bra serves a different purpose for different activities and we recommend referencing each specific bra product description to determine the best bra for your body and sport. Our bras should generally fit snug. Wearing the bras too loose will not likely provide adequate support.

***Please note, a majority of our sports bras are medium support and medium coverage. If you are looking for the highest impact support that we offer; check out the X-Factor, Intensity or Moxie Sports Bra!
