Brooks Dare Zip Run Bra


Skip the struggle with the Brooks Dare Zip Run Bra.

The Dare Zip employs a zippered front closure that makes getting in and out a breeze—no wriggling required. But the easy design doesn’t skimp on support: a hidden bottom band offers and crossback design deliver run-ready comfort.

With sweat-wicking DriLayer Horsepower fabric and strategically placed perforations to vent excess heat, the Brooks Dare Zip Run Bra is ideal for runners who want to spend more time on their feet and less time changing.

Brooks zip front bra

Comfortable to wear. I was happy to find that the tag could be easily removed as it was placed under the arm and was uncomfortable(scratchy). The only thing is that that was the care instructions and size info. I wish they’d printed those on the bra. The front zipper is challenging. The hook to secure the top of the opening is necessary, but, hard to maneuver as it’s small. The material is “sponge-like” which makes it a bit warm for wearing outside in hot weather (great for cold winter runs, I suspect). I prefer to be able to adjust the straps but, overall a good buy.

Brooks zipper front sports bra

I bought this as a post surgical zipper front bra. It didn't fit well. The area around the armpits was too high. It was uncomfortable. It was a nice bra it just didn't work for this issue.

Good but not Great!!

I love the zip feature in the front. After a long, hot, sweaty run, it is easy to take off. It is comfortable and ready for any high-impact exercise. The only downside is the bottom of the zipper even though it is encased in the bra creates a rash on long runs.

Brooks running bras

Best running bras - I own three now and use for distance runs. No schafing during recent marathon. The front zip bra makes it easy on/off .
