The Draw: A Real Built-In Bra
This cheery, calming classic tank design can keep you happy going long or short on warm days. A mesh panel in the back helped keep us cool, and two large back pockets stashed our iPhone and a few bars and gels with ease. Of all the tops with built-in bras we’ve worn and tested, this bra is the most substantial. Made of compression spandex, it’ll do its part to keep things secure, likely making a second bra unnecessary for C-cups and below. Also, a longer cut will keep you covered in aero. The shorts feature three large top-entry pockets along the back of the waist for gels—we wouldn’t put keys, as there’s little security—while a minimal, comfy fleece chamois disappears on the run, it could leave some women wanting more padding when riding longer than Olympic distance. Those with very sensitive skin could find the band of silicone grip on the legs irritating.
Tri tank & shorts $95 each
