sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

Groundwork Knit fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

The most comfortable bra ever

Not a super busty runner and never worried about support. Until I started training for an ultra. Smaller chest or not 5 hours of running will get things sore. This bra is nicely supportive without being too tight for comfort. It hasn't chaffed even running in damp conditions. I will buy one in each color I love it so much. Also wore it through a 12 hour shift at work and it was fantastic for anyone else in healthcare.

My go to sports bra

This is by far my favorite sports bra. It is supportive and prevents chaffing without feeling constricting. The phone pocket is handy when I don't want to bring my waistbelt.

Supporting supportive bras

Running is hard enough but, as someone who usually fits a 34DDD bra, running can be a little harder without the right gear. This is the third ascend sports bra I have bought and I will keep buying it until all my old bras are replaced. The material is very comfortable, the straps do not dig into my shoulders, and the band doesn’t make it harder to breath. So far, my longest run in this bra was 12 miles, I didn’t have to adjust it (or my boobs) once. Remarkable.

Favorite

I own two of the W's Ascend sports bras and they are the favorites in my rotation. For me I can easily put my phone in or take out of the pocket in the back. I am a marathon runner and have had no issues with chafing on the long runs. For size reference I am 5'7", 135 - 140 lbs, a 34 B and the small fits me great.

Super Comfortable

Finally got a chance to try the Ascend bra and it’s definitely my new favorite. Supportive and very comfortable. No chafing. Fit is true to size.

Ascend sports bra

I love this bra! Just wish the pad inserts didn't come out every time I wash it. Common problem with sports bras.

Mostly good

I bought this bra in August and feel that I am able to give a fair review now. I like the fit and style of Janji bras and how they are not tight and restrictive in the armpit or too low or high in the chest. The pocket is great and I use it for my phone when I am wearing bottoms without pockets.
Sizing: I am 5'4" and 155lbs, wear a 34E in regular bra sizing and got a medium. It fits great. A large would also fit, but would not offer any compression. The medium is tight enough to be supportive but still very comfortable.
Support: I wear this bra for running. It is high enough support most of the time. When I have my period it is slightly too soft to be comfortable when running. If I am running longer (20-ish kms), I will wear another bra underneath to prevent soreness by the end of the run. For around 15kms or less it is supportive enough.
Quality: It seems like it will last a long time, the construction is good and it still looks like new after many kms and many washes. Hasn't shown any signs of stretching or losing elasticity whatsoever.
My one complaint is the band, it often folds or bends because it isn't fully fastened to the inside of the bra, and doesn't seem like it is firm enough to maintain it's shape. If it weren't for this I would probably stop using all other brands of bras. I bought the pace bra as well and the band also folds and bends.

The XS is a little too snug for me, but I like the coverage and support of this bra, and of course the pocket in the back
