    Thank you for the thorough review! I’m looking for a sports bra that can be worn alone as well as under other layers (as your options all seem to be) for an 11-day backpack on the High Sierra Trail to Mount Whitney. I sort of intuited the issues with high-impact-activity bras, and I don’t have enough up front to require “compression.” I do, however, have headlight issues and fear that the bralette might be a little too little for a mixed-company trek with strangers, especially with the knowledge that a lighter color will be better for discouraging mosquitoes. How did you fare with the Ibex bralette?

      I think you’d need to look for something with padding in the cup region. The one I ended up wearing on my thru-hike, the Patagonia Barely Everyday bra, has space to pads/insert, so that might work. On the other hand, pads would dry more slowly than a single layer bra unless you removed them for drying.

      Hope that helps!
