Use a measuring tape around your bust and ribcage and measure in inches to determine what size would fit you best. The Handful Y-Back Bra can comfortably accommodate thru a D+ for high impact, however larger cups can wear it as an every day leisure, yoga and walking bra.
Rated in Runner's World as top running bra for D+, this fixed strap style with no hardware, showcases all the benefits of the original bra designed to flatter, not flatten®. A unique crochet detail makes this a versatile choice for both fitness and fashion. Wider band sits below the bra line for added comfort.

Comfort Y-Back Design
We designed, tweaked, redesigned, and tweaked some more to get these straps juuuuust right: nice and wide so they don't dig in, super soft so they don't chafe, positioned in just the right spot on your shoulder for the best support, and a cute little lacy detail to balance out all that business with some pleasure.
We're all for unity, sticking together, all that stuff... just not inside our bras! This little elasticized wonder feature defines your shape. Bonus: it also prevents the dreaded front gape, in case you're not into sharing all and baring all with every forward bend.
I can range between 36B - 36C or M/L depending on the bra. I took a gamble and got the medium from handful and I’m not disappointed. Great support and it doesn’t cut into my sides. I’ve used it for High Intensity Interval Training and Weight Training. Comfy and held together the whole time.
I have 5 or 6 of the Y-Back bra, they are my favorite. I wear a medium and it's perfect. I have worn this bra or 2 different 100K's and many other runs and I never have any issues. It's so comfortable. This is the only sports bra I will wear!
Love my Y-back so much that I actually have 3 in different colors - Wingin’ it, Eclipse, and Girls Night. I usually have to try a few different sizes when it comes to sports bras (Brooks and Champion), but due to the stretchiness of the band, I didn’t have to give it a second thought. I just choose small in all of their sports bras and they fit just perfectly. The fabric is really soft and the Y back has a really cute design with a bit of lace for a little more of a feminine look. Best part of it is that after my runs, I can easily take it off. It gives me the support I need for the runs themselves and I don’t have to squeeze out of it after I’m done. Thanks Handful for such a supportive and cute bra!
I'm obsessed with this bra. I was originally looking for new sports bras last summer to avoid the dreaded chaffing while running and saw a lot of recommendations for this brand. Since then, I have replaced ALL of my sports bras to Handful and cannot workout in anything else. I'm obsessed with everything - the fit, the colors, the support. This bra is magical!
Excellent fit for a 34DD. The coverage is great, keeps the new girls in on the sides and covers most of my armpit scarring. I mostly look for bras with an adjustable back clasp, but this fits great without. The fabric is soft and well made. The included pads are good quality too!
Kept going back and forth whether to try this out or not. Seeing I am from Canada, I was so hesitant because of the exchange rate etc. BUT, I said what the heck...I'm gonna order it. I ended up ordering two and I couldnt be happier! Normally sports bras flatten my chest but this one does not!!! It keeps everything in place!!! So impressed with these bras and will definetly order more in the future!
The best bra ever! I wear it to run or cross fit. Excellent that I can hide my key, mace, or chapstick in my bra with no issues.
I now own multiple Y Back bras and love them. I wear a 36B in a Spanx racer back bra and the size Medium fits me perfectly. I wear them for all my workouts, but I mostly run. I wore a Y Back bra during both of my 100k's last year and had no issues at all. I won't wear anything else.
Size is very true to what the size chart says! I am bigger busted around 36DD-36DDD and it’s very hard to find a bra that holds everything up and that is comfortable(especially breastfeeding). The fabric is extremely comfortable and holds up very well. I don’t think I’ll be able to buy another brand!
I wear this bra for EVERYTHING! Great for yoga, hikes, lounging you name it!
Doesn’t hold my boobs tight enough. I like feeling snug.
I really like this bra but there is NO WAY I would call it high impact. It’s a solid medium impact for me at my current bust size but it’s comfortable enough to wear all day so I’m still happy with my purchase.
Did a half marathon and it got hot! If I wasn't embarrassed by my fat tummy, shirt was coming off because it fits great and makes Bewbs look gooooood!
Love this bra! So happy with the fit. Incredibly comfy. Only wish it was a tad more supportive for running and HIIT style workouts.
I had recently purchased the Y Back bra in red, and I absolutely loved it! So, since I was in need of a new, comfortable, supportive white sports bra, of course I bought the same bra in No Headlights White! These are the best chafe-free (even in sweltering heat and humidity percentages in the 90s) running bras, and as one of my friends remarked upon a recent post-race photo on social media, “that bra makes you look stunning!” That’s definitely a first for a sports bra! And the sizing is super simple. I wear an XS in t-shirts, as I am a petite woman with a 32-C bra size, so that’s what I ordered, and it fits perfectly.
The Y-Back bra is the most comfortable sports bra I've ever owned! Best way I can describe it is it feels like butter. It's super soft yet sturdy. I need that for riding my bike around town. My favorite feature is the wide straps & removable pads. Thank you for thinking of it!
Great quality fabric and very comfortable. I feel as though the cup part is small and does not adequately hold all of my breast tissue more specifically on the sides. Love the structure of the Y back bra and will definitely order another Handful!
This is my first Handful bra and I’m in love! I’ve never in my life found a sports bra that doesn’t give the dreaded “uniboob”. But this one doesn’t! It is true to t-shirt size, which made this so easy to decipher while shopping online. I wear a M t-shirt but a 36D bra, so I wasn’t sure how it would fit. But the M was perfect! I know I’ll be back to order more as soon as possible. Can’t say enough good things! Thank you, Handful!
The Y back provides the best support for breastfeeding boobs and cardio!
It’s a bit snug around the band but great for high impact. I use this bra for hiking with my dog, Hot Pilates, and Bikram.
Very comfortable! I'm a 32D and the size S will be a great bra for lower impact activities. I decided to order the XS for running because I prefer a little more compression when I'm running 20+ miles. I've been unhappy with so many new sports bras having hook and eye closures as they chafe and are extremely difficult to close. Wore the XS on a run this morning and it was great. No chafing, no uni-boob, and it was so easy to put on and take off! Will buy more.
Obsessed!! Perfect for running and workouts and yoga! And lounging around!
By far my favorite bra I've ever found. It is very comfortable - I wear it all day at work (work in the hospital) and then head to the gym afterwards. I feel supported during high intensity workouts, weightlifting, and running. I love the design and the shape it gives you. Slowly transitioning all my sport bras over to Handful. No looking back to the other not-so-great bras I used to have!
I have been trying to find the perfect sports bra for bootcamp/HIIT classes that holds it all in, but doesn’t make me feel like my ribs are being crushed. I haven’t tested this on a cardio day, but it has held up great on mainly strength days. It’s soft and provides enough coverage to make me feel good. I love the design and it’s the right price.
I'm currently pregnant, and although my bust size hasn't changed (yet) my breast are definitely starting to get heavier, this bra offers all the support I need. It is the MOST COMFORTABLE sports bra I've ever owned. I have worn it to work out in (typically I do weight lifting and short burst cardio, not a runner here) and I have worn it just for everyday life. I will definitely be getting more. This is also the only sports bra that I've left the cups in, usually, I just rock the nips, but I like that the slots to put the cups in are big enough to fit my whole hand in so I can make sure the cups are exactly where I need them. I LOVE this bra. Even when I'm no longer pregnant I will be rocking this bra (not pregnant I have a large chest as well).
I didn’t think this bra would be as supportive as some of my other ones but it totally is! I run almost everyday and it was super comfy! Love how there are no tags and the ruching gives it a little bit of femininity!
The Y back bra is the only bra I run in anymore! I absolutely love it. It doesn't cut in any wear or bother my shoulders, and I always feel supported. I wear a large in most tops for reference (Athleta, Lululemon).
LOVE this bra! Let's be honest thought, LOVE all handful bras.
I love the Y back bra. It totally holds me In For my workouts and it is adorable! I can’t wait to add more to my collection!
This bra is very comfortable, supportive, and so soft. I will definitely be buying another.
I am in love with this bra! I have already shared with friends and plan to purchase more. I typically wear the Rebound Racer (Brooks) in a 32/34D, but this provides better support for running and high intensity workouts (Wearing a Small). This picture is from my mama/daughter yoga session after we ran. The quality and feel is so much better as well. Highly recommend and am looking forward to buying more and trying other styles for other activities & daily life. Thank you ladies for creating an amazing product.
I'm so excited about how well this Y-Back sports bra works for me! I was a bit hesitant without having adjustable strap length but it fits perfect! I wore it to a Yoga guided flow class that was pretty quick paced and I have to say it's the first time I haven't had to adjust my bra during this class!
Usually I wear a 34D in most styles of Victoria's Secret sports bras
LOVE these bras!!! I usually wear the wacoal zip-up sports bra, & although it holds the girls in place for exercise, it also digs into my skin. I saw handful online and they “looked” comfortable. Totally took a chance...and won!!! I have the Y-back in a large and a medium. Im OBSESSED!!! So soft, comfy, supportive and most of all i still have 2 boobs....not just a squished uni-boob, like most other sports bras. I cannot speak highly enough of these bras and this company as a whole!! Keep making amazing products!
I found handful by following someone on instagram and I LOVE my new bras! I cannot wait to buy more - this was a little more snug around than I am used to but overall fits great... I got an Xsmall

This bra is extremely comfortable I forgot I had one on! The only thing I don’t like is how see-through the pads are on the white bra after washing it.
This bra is great for big busts! I can jump with comfort! Make sure you take your measurements before ordering! I wear a medium in this bra, and it fits like a glove!
This was a great find, I purchased this bra after breast reduction surgery, going from a G cup to D cup size, to provide support to step up my game in getting fit and loosing weight. I feel comfortable and secure with this bra which is keeping me motivated. Fits true to size according to the website sizing chart. Will be back for more. Thank you to women taking care of women!
I really like the fit and feel of this bra. Just be aware its more of a lounging bra vs high impact. Not for running or HIIT exercises.
Feels nice not too tight.
Love this Bra. Excited to order more.
Honestly it’s been so long since I bought a regular bra (and having lost some weight) I’m not even sure exactly what size I wear now!! But I used the sizing chart when purchasing; I was right on the cut off for medium and close to large. Since I was buying this for high impact workouts I went with the smaller size (medium). It is a lil snug on me around the rib cage...but I have a large rib cage and was kinda expecting this. I think a large would have worked fine as well...but I’m happy with my medium! Plus they are great quality and supportive as always!!! I <3 handful!!!
I typically wear a Medium in Fila sports bra but I needed something more. I have heard a few people mention handful and I was curious if it would live up to its reputation. It certainly does! I don’t want to wear any other sports bra now. I ran a Marathon (26.2 miles) in it and it was PERFECT! I love the quality, comfort and support it gives. Before handful I have never loved a bra before!
Very soft and comfortable for high intensity workouts! Love the color and was exactly as the picture shows! Loooove Handful bras!!
Love this bra! I’ve used it for running and hot yoga and for daily use, I don’t want to take it off ! Like ever! It’s soft like butter , do yourself a favor and buy them all! All the colors are so amazing!
I originally bought this in a small because of the sizing chart suggestion. It’s was too small so I returned it for a Medium. It’s VERY comfortable. I am a group fitness instructor and I wear it to do a lot of different things. The only thing I wish was different (in all bras with removable pads) is that the pads were NOT removable or stayed in while washing. I usually end up just tossing the pads because it gets to be a pain after a while.
I LOVE the Handful Y-back bra. I've tried all kinds of sports bras--from the cheapest to most expensive--and these are the only ones I like to wear now. I wear them to the gym, for sweaty morning runs, and hiking. I like that the straps are soft and don't cut into my back or shoulders. I also like the coverage the pads provide. I wear a size XS in the Y-back and a 34 barely B in regular bras.
Love this bra, great support for work outs, snug but not tight! Great fabric!
So supportive and comfortable without sacrificing the style! I absolutely love the red color and I’m so impressed by Handful’s products.
Very supportive and I love the super soft material. First time I've worn or tried a bra with the t-back design, so it still feels a little strange to me. The fit is perfect and I like the way it looks too!
I can’t say enough amazing things about my Y back bra! The color is gorgeous, the feel is silky smooth without being slick, and it absorbs an enormous amount of perspiration while keeping me comfortable! I would normally have thought I needed a medium, but followed the charts and went with the small: PERFECT! Trust the reviews and sizing chart! I do group fitness weight lifting, core training, HIIT, cycling, and hiking with my kids in tow in my Handful bra. It stays in place, it’s comfortable, and cute to boot!
I bought this bra as I needed some new ones for my CrossFit training. Needed something that not only looks good but feels awesome and supportive. Well this bra is all that and more! I don't feel it digging in or sliding around during intensive workouts. I will buying more to wear a regular bra. Love love love that there is no mono boob! Super soft and quick drying fabric. You wont be disappointed.
Only sports bra I’ll wear! So comfy & lightweight. Super soft material!
It’s been so hard for me to find a sports bra that I liked after having my daughter. My chest went down two sizes, and it seemed like nothing had the right amount of support! Then I heard about handful and now I’m in love! This bra fits so well, and keeps everything secure. The padding adds just the right amount of push-up, but still looks natural. I’m actually exited to work out again! This color is not usually one I would choose, but it was on sale so I went for it, and I LOVE it! It’s pretty and feminine. I also plan to wear it under crop tops in the summer!
Am a huge fan of the original Handful bra and have several - all XS. Ordered this in XS and it is a bit too small. Exchanging for the Small!
My new favorite sports bra!!! It's so cute but still super supportive! My son is still nursing so it's hard to find a sports bra that is comfy & supportive, but doesn't compress (which hurts my milk supply for him). The material feels amazing against my skin too!
I have two of these and really like how comfortable and smooth the material is. I would want to wear them all the time if I could. However, I wish they would change the pads. You need some padding, so I don't want to take them out, but these feel twice as thick as the inserts that come with similar styles from other brands. I prefer a more natural look and not like I am wearing a push up bra! I wish they would scale this back.
Love, Love, Love this bra!!!
I love the quality and fit of the bra. It is so comfy, and great on runs. I will be ordering more in the future.
My favorite part was the option of color! I own this piece in black, red and teal. I normally order a medium , but trusted the size chart and got a small. I love how snug it feels and the “girls” don’t feel like they will ever fall out. It’s definitely fitted! Because it is a snug fit-I personally have a struggle taking it off, but I wouldn’t trust a larger size because I really do love the fit when I wear it!
So all in all, I am once again well pleased with this brand. I am 5’8 145lbs. I wear these bras during my 40 hr week as a surgical nurse, when I’m lounging around with a good book, or when I’m running my miles. I decided to venture out from the adjustable bras and try a Y back. It’s not as comfy at first as the adjustables because the straps are too tight across my shoulders, but I think with a little more wear it will be a perfect fit. I think women that need a lot of compression/support could benefit from this bra maybe order a size up if you’re measurements are on the upper end of a size.
These are the ONLY bras that i can wear to the hospital for 12 hours, and then come home and run 16 miles, AND wear out on the town. I like a looser band and i don't like my bras to cut into my arms too much - and these bras are all PERFECTLY comfortable in all of these areas - they look great under both tight and loose shirts. Love Love Love these bras.
Beautiful red color and the feminine touches on the straps .. so pretty! My daughter loves Handful!
My 16 year old RAVED about these after she wore it to basketball practice! I’m not sure she’s taken them off since Christmas!
Great fit for me and material is very soft!
So supportive without creating the dreaded Uni-boob! This is my second one of these- absolutr game changer- soft enough for Yoga- supportive enough for the gym
The elastic band at the bottom is a little tight for my ideal yoga bra, but it stays in place and I don't even notice it once I get started with practice. The modesty pads are really nice, good shape and easy to remove. I prefer doing my yoga practice without the modesty pads.
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE! It’s super soft and comfortable! This is my daily go to bra! It couldn’t be more perfect!!
I had been trying to find a marathon-worthy bra since a sudden weigh loss took me from 34D to 32 B. My former favorite bra was chafing like crazy, and the size down was difficult to find. A lady at Fleet Feet told me to try the Handful Y back bra, XS. It’s amazing. It is easily the most comfortable, thoughtfully-designed bra I’ve ever owned. Ran a BQ in it last weekend at OBX Marathon. Never chafed anywhere! I will buy more of these, and wear for Boston 2019. Thank you for this amazing product!!!
Tried this bra on on a whim at a fitness clothing store and OMG! It is SO Comfortable and supportive AND I didn't have any trouble getting it off after my intense HIIT workout! I didn't get stuck in it because of the amount of sweat! I will be replacing ALL of my current sports bras with handful bra's! I am telling ALL of my friends about this bra the Y back is the only one I've tried! I'm looking forward to trying the others but will get a few more Y bra's! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that the material isn't the usual sports bra/exercise material; I'm just not a fan of that. I love this soft material it's sooooooooooo AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought the y-back and the adjustable because of a recommendation from @foodiegirlfitness. Ashlie said they were great for larger cup sizes and I am always on the lookout for a great supportive (and comfortable) bra for my 34DDD size. I didn't think the adjustable bra had enough support but the y-back is great! It is so supportive and comfortable that I am taking it with me backpacking next week in Colorado! I am glad I tried out this company. I will be ordering more when I get back.
What does the back look like, please. A photo?
I the Y back bra and the adjustable handful bra both in the same size. The Y back bra is tighter around the ribs than the adjustable bra. I have several of the adjustable bras and they stretch out and become to big around the ribs after awhile. I do worry that the straps might stretch and aren't adjustable but I love the wide straps and am ordering another one.
Use a measuring tape around your bust and ribcage and measure in inches to determine what size would fit you best. Handful can comfortably accommodate an A, B, or C cup. D+ cups can wear Handful Bras as an every day leisure, yoga and walking bra, but the higher the cup size, the more your cups might runneth over!
