I absolutely love the Y Back Bra! It is my favorite Handful style to wear for workouts!! It is so comfortable and this camo print is amazing!!! These bras LAST!! Excellent Quality. I usually wear a Small or Medium in a shirt and definitely feel the Small is a bit too tight for my liking. The Medium fits perfectly!! I am obsessed and am slowly on the path to get it in every color!!
I originally ordered size small but xsmall fit much better for a tight fit for running( I’m right in between sizes). I’m impressed by customer service and the exchange policy. I’m so happy a friend suggested to try out handful! The quality is great! Definitely will be purchasing more!
By far the best sports bra I’ve ever worn! Worth every penny. I scream from the mountaintops to anyone that will listen at how amazing these sports bras are. The crisscross that I have in black is thought to out on and take off but the support is by far the best ever!
This bra provides great support and no chafing. It looks good with or without a shirt. I’ve worn it to the gym as well as on a long run and it did not disappoint. This is a must have in performance apparel!
Favorite workout bra. Gives me the support I need without pulling, chafing or cutting into me when I move. They make me feel mighty and help me look fantastic.
I heard of this company on the Another Mother Runner podcast. I just had an inaugural run in my new Handful bra! I never even thought about it while I was running- that’s winning in my book. It’s really comfortable and it stays in place. I was running in front zip bras but I have a constant burn on my chest from chafing. I will be replacing all of those with handful bras! I even ordered one of these for my teenage daughter who runs track and cross country. For reference, I’m about 5’5” and I weigh 148. I ordered a medium and it was too snug. The large fits perfect.
I am currently in-between mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. I have a tissue expander in my left breast and my natural breast on the right. The left breast is significantly smaller than the right breast as I await my final reconstructive surgery (and reduction). This bra is a life-saver for me! Using the pad inserts, both breasts appear symmetrical and the bra provides plenty of support when I run! Thank you!!!
Great fit. Doesn’t pull on my shoulders so glad to avoid that pain. Definitely a win!
The Y back is my go to for any activity, this is my fifth one! The design makes it comfortable to wear for every day wear and the support makes it great for mid to high impact. The quality makes it last wash after wash. The only thing I’m not a fan of is the inserts; they are perfectly shaped and high quality cut at a certain size, I don’t think they are necessary. The great news is that they are removable and the double layer of fabric is more than sufficient to remain discreet.
Hands down my most favorite sports bra!!
Love this bra! I know it says it’s for C/D cups, I’m a 36DD and it’s great! I’ve taken this bra out on several runs now and have had zero chafe, the support is great and I do not feel like I need to ‘adjust’ at all. I bought 3 more so I can replace all of my sports bras.
The cups are a little on the small size so I actually remove the pads each time I purchase bras from Handful. Then, they fit perfectly and are comfortable!
This bra was a great deal for the sale price of $20 however the side slit pockets where the pads go in and out of bunch up and look odd and not smooths when the pads are out. Would have returned but was a final sale item. And I think a 2xl would really fit better as well
I love these bras. Just enough support for high impact but not too tight.
Wish the cup area was bigger but love the wide band and love that there are no clips
Wow what a comfortable bra! I am definitely buying more of these and I love the dark blue with the cute stitching detail on the y straps.
I love the sizing recommendations, the fit of this bra is perfect! This bra has great support, fun color options and I will definitely be ordering more
I have two bras in this style, the girls don’t budge when I’m wearing it. The band and straps are strong and wide.
This is the best sports bra i have ever found. I have pretty much 2 of every color of the "Y" Bra, I love it. Its great to travel , to workout and everyday life.
I want it in every color!!!! It is super cute and holds my girls up during any type of workout!
My new favorite! Doesn’t dig, ride up or do any of the bad things bras do . Will definitely buy in other colors!
As always, Handful fits perfectly if you go by your T-shirt size. As a smaller-chested woman, I LOVE having the option of the inserts.
This is just the perfect sports bra. I bought the other one with all the little straps on the back. It's OK, good enough to keep as it is pain to return things.
THIS ONE is PERFECT. Nice stretchy fit, super comfortable, easy to get on and off and looks great. The t-back is very comfortable. I did not want to take it off. I will definitely buy many more and clean out my closet of oldies and no longer goodies
I like this bra a lot. What would make more love it would be if it offered more support. I was hoping this bra would hold my chest up and in and prevent bounce during high impact exercise. It is comfortable and I’m keeping it for yoga and strength training.
Well made and the Y back keeps those straps where they should be. Very comfy but a trick to get on and off like any bra that goes over your head. I think the support is very good .. it smooshes like any sports bra so I wear when active or whenever I can sacrifice separation and lift.
Just the right compression to get through a workout or day without having to constantly adjust.
Great quality, cups are the best quality that I've ever seen & easy to remove or add.
I just ran a 5k in the Florida heat and couldn’t be more happier with this sports bra! It didn’t move, never needed to be adjusted, and was comfortable the entire run. Definitely a favorite!
Love this bra! Super comfortable and great support.
This is a great workout bra!! Comfy and supportive, my favorite style of handful ever!
So comfortable. As a large chested woman, i wouldn’t wear this for high impact workouts. It’s great for lounging, errands, or days I don’t want to wear a wired bra.
Could live in this bra!!
Could live in this bra!
I’m not a fan. Why do people who make bras seem to hate women? I am an ultrarunner and like a bra with high compression to minimize bouncing. Despite this being advertised as such, the bra did not offer great support. It’s also uncomfortable to pull on and off. I’m not sure what the function of the removable padded cups are. The bra is designed in such a way that you can see the sides of the removable cups when they are inserted. Overall, Handful just doesn’t work for me. Would recommend runners with larger chests look elsewhere.
Absolutely my most favorite sports bra!
My favorite running bra! I’m 5’9”32DD and a size 4/6. This holds it all in! This is my third one. I have one in small, which I wear without cups when running. The other two are medium, love them all!
It's definitely not supported at all.
These are the only sports bras I wear!! Love this neutral color so much!!
Super cute sports bra that keeps things in place during my HIIT workouts! Love it!
I work outside as a professional gardener/landscaper. This is the bra I've been looking for forever! Stays in place and I don't think about straps, bands or things digging into tender parts of me! Yay!
Very comfortable bra! Does not dig around the band. This is my second Y back and I wear them as my everyday bra. Love them. Keep up the excellent quality.
Absolutely love love love the colour and fit, can't wait for summer so I can wear singlets with it
Loved it !! Awesome fit
Very flattering! Great support. Best sports bra I have ever owned. It was highly recommended in a little boutique in the Palm Desert area. Glad I bought it and am going to buy another.
I love this bra! Coverage is awesome, especially on the sides under the arms.
Love the colors available and love the fit! Best bras ever!
Best. Bra. Ever!!!! I don’t wear anything else, no matter the occasion. No more changing into a sports bra when I want to run/skip/hop/be goofy. Just bought three more because nothing is worse than running out of a clean bra.
Love the Y back bras. Super comfortable & great fit
This bra gives me the support and comfort I need both for work out and everyday. I have a lot of bteast pain from cysts and this bra doesn't hurt me. It also gives me a better shape then the comfort bras.

This is a great bra for golf, yoga, light cardio and weights. I’m not a runner and probably wouldn’t get enough support for higher impact exercise from this but it’s so comfortable and I love that there’s no underwire. I took out the removable cups.
I love these bras! Lots of support for exercise, but also great to wear when you just don't want to deal with a real bra!
I bought this bra after Brooks discontinued the Juno. I went for a 5 mile run wearing the Y-back and didnt even notice the bra or any bouncing. Love this sports bra and intend to purchase a few more.
Great support, and easy to get on and take off.
I have taken this bra out to run in twice and both times I have loved it. As a nursing mom, I need something that has good support and doesn't chafe. So far so good!
Great bra. Perfect design for wearing under tanks. Cute and comfortable.
This bra is fantastic. Soft and supportive material. No chaffing anywhere. I wear it with and with out the pads depending on my mood. I recently ordered about six bras from various companies and this was the one I kept. A winner for sure.
I honestly have no idea what my bra size is after being pregnant and nursing for the last couple years. I went with my T-shirt size, as suggest by Handful. Depending on brands I’m in a xl/xxl. The xl large is a little tight, but not uncomfortable. I like my bras on the snugger side to keep these babies contained.
Already planning on ordering more!
Truly the most comfortable “get things done” and “still feel cute” sports bra!
Absolutely love this bra! So comfy!
Handful Y-back for the win! This bra is smooth, with a wide flat band and no seams that chafe. Plenty of support for running. The pads are nicer than most removable pads — easy to get in and out and position. It works nicely and doesn’t feel like a heavy wetsuit after a hot run like some of my previous sports bras.
This bra is perfect! Super supportive for higher-impact workouts, incredibly comfortable, and cute! I might live in this bra from now on. And Handful is correct when they say to buy your t-shirt size. It fits perfectly!
Honestly, I LOVE this bra so far - I wear it running (usually on medium length trail runs) and it gives good support! It is also cute and comfy for wearing around.
Love this bra! It’s so comfortable and the color is really pretty too. My favorite is the gathering in the middle to prevent uniboob
This is the best sports bra I have. It is comfortable, fits great, and supportive.
I hope this review helps someone else in need. About 2 years ago I was wearing a silicone breast form to even out a severe case of asymmetry. And I hated it. There are not many options for breast asymmetry. I found Handfuls Lights Out pads on Amazon. I began wearing them in my regular mastectomy bras. I liked them so well I thought I should try the bras that fit the pads. At that time it just wasnt for me. Fast forward to now. The Y Back bra is amazing!!!! It allows me to even out my silloute and I can't even tell! I feel confident and secure. Nothing is moving around. It doesn't cut or dig in. I wear two pads on one side to get even. Definitely buying more. Thank you Handful!
I bought this for my daughter! She loves it! She says it is so comfortable. I will definitely be purchasing some more for her!
I'm struggling with the sizing of Handful bras. A year ago I ordered my first, the double down style in small, and it was just too big, but I wore it so couldn't return it. This week I nervously ordered a double down and y back in xs. The d.d. fits wonderfully. I feel beautiful and confident in it. The Y back I can barely squeeze on. I must have a weird in-between body. Quality is great though!
This was a great bra, it just didn't offer the support I needed. I'm a D cup and looking for more support, so I really need adjustable straps to get that lift. That said, had I not already ordered and love both the Gametime and the Closer bra, I might have kept this anyway. I did exchange for a Black Closer Bra. No pix because put right back in the bag after trying on. If you are a B or C cup, this would be a good bra for you.
The Y-back bra is so comfortable and holds the girls in!
Love love love this bra, it's the most comfortable sports bra I've ever worn! Sometimes I even wear it to work under a blouse or sweater. No tugging, pulling, adjusting - just comfort!
When I got this bra I was a size 34 DD, however I am not that size in my photo. I have been working out and am now a 34 C, so a mize medium is too big for me. I am writing this review when I was a 34 DD. I like the bra, I am not 'in love' with it. Even when I had larger boobs, I have 'saggy' boobs and the cut just wasn't flattering for them. The support was okay. I would say these run big. As the other bras I got in a size medium fit great!
I was hoping this bra would be good for high impact sports- ie: jogging. Definitely not for larger chested gals. It's ok for yoga or weights though.
This is both the best-fitting and most comfortable bra style I've worn in a long time. (I also have the FaV and the Double Down, which are very nice, but not quite as comfortable.) (As you can see) I gained the Covid-19 25 pounds :-(, and was desperate for new bras. So, in come the mountains of boxes, followed by return after return. I had a double mastectomy with an autologous transplant reconstruction about 10 years ago, and this is the first bra I've worn, out of literally hundreds I've tried on, that stays in place while it supports, and yet does not make me want to scream from painful pressure on scar tissue and bone damage. Also - shout out to HANDFUL - it uses real thread rather than that horrible nylon fishing-line stuff, and has nearly all seams on the outside, where they belong! The only change I'd ask Handful to make is to sell a no-padding version - just like this, double layer front, but with the foam insert pockets already sewn closed, so that lint, sand, etc. doesn't collect in them during activities and washing (I'd pay more, Handful!).
This bra is perfect for running! It’s tight enough to keep everything in place, but not so tight that it restricts my breathing. Plus - the material is so soft and doesn’t leave marks on my collar bones.
I fell in love with these bras. They are so comfortable and fit perfect. No uniboob!
I purchased 2 of these...love them for running, yoga and everyday.
I've had this bra for less than 24 hours and I already like it better than any of the (many) others in my drawer. Super comfortable material; a band that stays where it should and doesn't fold or ride up; supportive enough for exercise, hiking, and dog agility; figure flattering; and with the right amount of modesty protection. I wish this could be my all day/every day bra but the strap location makes them visible at neckline of my work shirts (not a good look). My solution...order the Adjustable Sports Bra in Have it All Honey. Would you please consider making the Y-Back in Have it All Honey, too? Thank you.
It is nice, light and comfortable. It holds everything in place. I like that it wicks away the sweat. . It has taken me time to find a good sports bra that does that.
The Y-Back bra is the only sports bra I wear. I run in all weather and never have any issues with my Y-Back bra. They have supported me in the rain, cold and heat from 3 miles to 72 miles! I tell everyone about Handful!!
I love this bra. It looks and feels great. Smooth and comfortable. I like the wide band on the bottom that keeps the bra in place. I would recommend this bra to anyone who likes comfort and a smooth look.
These bras are super amazing and such great quality!!
Love this bra! I was devastated a while ago when my go-to Moving Comfort bra was discontinued. I did a lot of research to find the best bra for me - as a runner, always training for endurance races, I needed to find a good fit PLUS a bra that I could afford to buy multiple of! I found the y-back and fell in love! It's all I wear for running these days because it's just so comfortable and cute, too as a bonus :D These days, I also wear my handful y-back for spin (peloton rides) and I love that if I want to wear them hiking, adding the pads back in ensures a good look under clothing layers.
Y’all. This is my new favorite bra. I’m a runner so I need lots of support. But I also need sweat wicking and no chafing. I prefer an old school pull on/off style rather than zippers and adjusters and other contraptions that always wind up digging into me somehow. This is it! I am a 32/34 C/D and the small fits perfectly. Tight enough for high impact support but doesn’t dig. (I also wear a small Athleta Ultimate bra, which was my previous go to.) Well done, Handful. This girl is your new biggest fan.
I absolutely love the Y-Back bra. It has been my highlight of 2020! I just picked up Outta Sight because camo, duh. The support is great for higher intensity workouts and also super comfortable for everyday wear.
This bra is an excellent! I wanted a little more support for running, and this is it! I will be back for more! Great fit and cute design! As always, NO chafing!!! Hooray! Thanks handful!
I adore these y-backed bra’s! I have 4 of them now and I use them on a daily basis. This bra has been perfect for work, lifting, HIIT workouts, hiking, and just running around town. It is the most comfortable and flattering bra I have ever owned. I wish I could get one in every color! This is a bra that I could wear all day long and still find it comfortable by the end of the day. Thanks Handful for making exceptional bra’s!!
Heard about this bra from a hiking group and I love it so much! So comfortable. Feel supported and beautiful!
I’ve worn this all day for two days straight through weight training, Pilates and HIIT workouts. I’m a busty gal and this fits like a dream. Definitely lives up to flattering without flattening. I shared this bra in a Facebook group and got so many questions about impact and pinching in the back or around shoulders - why I’ve included a back pic. Zero pinching, pulling or restrictions. Seriously feels like loungewear, albeit secure loungewear and super cute.
