By my standards, a good bra is really hard to find. This reason alone is why I’ve been holding on to the same old ratty sport bras for years on end. I know they work. Are they cute and functional? Would I be psyched to rip off my shirt on a hot day? Not really. When I discovered the Têra Kaia (formerly known as Arêt Basewear) Toura, all those things changed.
I checked out their original line of handmade tops, and let me tell you, they are rad. Made of 82% nylon/18% spandex, the Têra Kaia Toura is lightweight, breathable and quick drying. The 4-way stretch fabric moves with you when you’re dyno-ing to your next hold or setting up for a tough yoga pose.
You don’t have to be afraid of an accidental nip slip. They look cute and are ultra comfortable. I’ve been living in mine day in and day out, to the point where my piece is falling apart at the seams. But fear not, the Têra Kaia Toura is factory produced and iron tough these days.
They come in two styles: Toura low cut and Toura high cut. The basewear I’ve been rocking is the low cut because my ladies are as petite as can be. It’s awesome for day-to-day wear. I don’t even wear regular bras or bralettes anymore.
I love the Toura straps for those moments where my shirt wants to come off. It’s supportive and technical, but still aesthetically pleasing. Climbing, backpacking, hot yoga, and more, this keep my boobies where they should be.
I’ve worn the Toura and slept in it for days on end. It’s just as comfortable as the first time I put it on. The straps don’t irritate or dig into my shoulders.
I’m not really a fan of it for high impact workouts; I find that they don’t keep my boobs from bouncing as much as I would like. The high cut bras solve this problem for larger tatas. They’re supposed to be more supportive for bustier folks.
Each Têra Kaia Toura retails for $64. Your purchase supports a local, California-made brand with an environmentally-conscious footprint and forward-thinking ideas in the outdoor industry. Psyched to see what else these ladies come out with!
