What makes Lynx bras special?

Designed by a larger breasted athlete, the LYNX bra utilizes Patented technology to provide Outstanding Support and Motion Control to Women of All Sizes. The LYNX DYNAMIC FLEX CONSTRUCTION gives you the freedom to breathe and move without restriction. The LYNX INTEGRATED STABILITY MATRIX supports your breasts from the sides of the bra, not the straps or band, providing unparalleled comfort and support. Finally, a sports bra designed for large-breasted women that actually works!

Is there a difference in support between the Cross Back, Racer Back, and Ladder Back bras?

All Lynx bras are designed to provide the same comfortable, high-impact support.

Since every woman’s body is unique, you may find that one style fits better than the others


The stylish and comfortable Cross Back design takes the pressure off your neck. The sleek Racer Back design with wide straps takes pressure off your shoulders, and both have adjustable keyhole back closure. The Ladder Back has no back clasp and is cool and super comfortable.

Are there any other differences between the three styles?

We definitely feel that the new Racer Backs are a better fit for someone who may need longer shoulder straps. They also seem to have a bit more room in the bust than the Cross Back do.


We’ve also noticed that the Ladder Back and Cross Back have about the same fit and support, though the Ladder Back tend to run a little bigger overall than the new Cross Back and Racer Back do (about a size difference). For example: if your Lynx size is 3 Dart, you should probably try the 2 Dart in Ladder Back
-or both!


We really recommend trying all three styles in as many sizes that your measurements are close to first, all at the same time. In this way you can save on return costs if exchanges are needed. Then , you’re welcome to return the ones that don’t fit for a refund -as long as they’re returned in new condition and within 30 days* It may just come down to which style fits your body the best!


Many of our customers tend to buy two types of bras; a slightly looser fitting bra for yoga and low-impact activities, and a snug/tighter fitting bra for higher intensity workouts, like running.

How do I put this bra on?
The Lynx bra is different because large portions of the bra don't stretch. So when you put on the Lynx bra, you have to reach in and position each breast inside the bra, making sure that the band at the bottom is flat against your ribcage.

All our bras go on over the head. Our Racer Back and Cross Back styles have hooks in the back that allow the bottom of the bra to open larger to make it easier to get them on and off. There are three different 'channels' sewn into the band that you can slide the hook into, allowing you to customize the fit. Our Ladder Back style doesn't have any hooks at all, and just stretches and goes on over the head.


The Ladder Back bra is made of the same material as our new Cross Back and Racer Back bra. That means that the front of the bra is covered with a layer of lightweight, wicking fabric. The back straps of the bra are stretchy, but keep in mind that the bra doesn't have a back clasp, so it may be slightly more difficult to get on and off at first than our other two styles. We will tell you though, that after trying it on, it may be our most comfortable style!

How do I know if my Lynx Bra is fitting me correctly?

Great question! The key to finding a sports bra that gives you both comfort and support is proper fit!

A great fitting Lynx bra will:

  • Have comfortable shoulder straps.

  • Fully contain your breasts without leaving extra space.

  • Allow you to breathe freely and comfortably.

  • Provide a band that lays flat against ribcage.

  • Have a back and sides that fit snug.

  • Will give you great support, with little or no breast movement when you jump up and down.

It’s ok if ..

  • the shoulder straps and band are loose, as long as you are getting the support you need. That's because all the support from a Lynx bra comes from the sides of the bra, not the straps or the band.

  • there is extra fabric between the bottom of your breasts and the top of the band, it is completely normal, and not a sign that the bra doesn't fit.

What should I do if I’m not getting the comfort and support that I need from the size I ordered?

If the fit was too small, or too big, or not giving you enough support, we’re happy to help with an exchange


Here are three options to choose from, to begin your exchange order process:


1) To find the next best size on your own is easy! Just use your responses to the Fit Questions below to help guide you through our Lynx Bra Size Chart. There, look for a smaller or bigger cup size, and or ribcage size to find your perfect next fit! (Then, just include a note with your return shipment indicating your order #, and the size, color, and style you would like in return -See our Exchanges link for complete details*)


2) Or, if you need help figuring out the next best size ~we’ve got lots of experience helping women find great

fitting sports bras! Just email your responses to the fit questions below, include your order number in the subject line, and we’ll get back to you! (Please know that it may take 1-3 business days before we can reply to emails)


3) The Fit Questions can also be found on the insert that comes with every order “Lynx Exchanges & Returns". We actually prefer customers use this method as it allows customer service more time with you! Just write your responses next to the fit questions on that page (in any color but black), and send the page back to us with your return shipment :)


Once we receive and process your return shipment , and look over your responses (2-10 days), we’ll contact you via email. By viewing your answers, we’ll be able to tell whether a different size/style will give you the support you need.


Important Note: If you tried on more than one size or style, be sure to base your responses for each separately (1-11).

The more specific your answers, the better it’ll help us (help you!).


Fit Questions:


1. Which of the three “channels" did you slide the hook into to close the bra; the loosest fitting first hook, middle hook, or was it on the

tightest 3rd fitting hook? (If you tried on a Ladder Back, you can skip this question)


2. Did you like the band fit?


3. Was the band lying flat across your ribcage, or was it lying on your breast tissue?


4. Did the back of the bra feel too big, or did it feel snug?


5. Did you like the cup fit?


6. Were your breasts fully contained in the bra, or did they spill out the top, sides, or bottom?


7. Was there extra room in the cups? By how much, a little or a lot?


7a. Or, was there not enough room in the cups? By how much, a little or a lot?


8. Were you able to take a full breath without any discomfort?


9. How did the shoulder straps feel? Were they comfortable?


10. While test fitting the bra at home, did you have any breast movement when you jumped up and down, or ran around the house?


11. Is there anything else that you'd like me to know about the fit?

Can I swim in Lynx bras?

Yes! Lynx bras are all designed with triathlons in mind, so you can definitely swim in them (although may not be quite as chlorine-resistant as competitive swimsuits).

How do I wash my Lynx bra?

Bras should be hand/or machine washed in cold water, and then air-dried or tumble dried on low heat.

Will my breasts touch in a Lynx bra?

It’s completely normal for your breasts to touch in our sports bras.

Lynx bras don't have any underwire or molded cups, so you won't get complete breast separation. But with the right fit, you will definitely get them locked down :-)


There are three different kinds of sports bras, encapsulation, compression and the Lynx sports bras. With an encapsulation bra there is an underwire and a separate pocket for each breast so the breasts do not touch at all. The compression bras are traditional sports bras that support you from underneath and push you in so your breasts touch a lot. Our Lynx sports bras support the breasts entirely from the side so sometimes they might touch or they might not.


The fit is different on everyone as everyone has different breasts and some women may have more or less space between their breasts -hence the 'uni-breast' look. If keeping your breasts apart is important to you, we suggest an underwire molded cup sports bra will help keep your breasts from touching.
