The Sackville Sports Bra

Regular price $61.00 Sale

This garment is offered on a made-to-order basis. Please allow for 3-6 weeks of lead time.

Lorica sports bras use the same soft but strong recycled fabric as our leggings, moisture-wicking and UPF-50 resistant. They feature a wide waist elastic and are front-lined, with the option to include removable bra inserts for additional coverage.

Our Sackville designs are based on the field garniture of Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset. A beautiful armor currently part of The Wallace Collection, it bears significant resemblance to the armor of Sir James Scudamore but for its blued steel: both armors were crafted in the Greenwich Royal Armories under the supervision of master armorer Jacob Halder.

Thomas Sackville himself was a man of somewhat questionable politics: he was a great advocate of "sumptuary laws," which is to say laws that only permitted fancy people to wear fancy things (for example, he dictated that only soldiers holding the rank of colonel or above should be permitted to wear silk and velvet). I get a special kick out of adapting his armor for all of us plebeians. 

Our model typically wears a 32B and is wearing a size XS with cup inserts.

85% Recycled Polyester, 15% Spandex
Moisture-wicking
UPF 50+ sun protection
Made in the USA

Our sports bras are created with performance fibers derived from post-consumer plastics. Compared to making "virgin" polyester, these recycled yarns offset using new petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy in the process.

Sports Bras

We recommend sizing to your waist measurement, especially if you are between sizes and your bust is the measurement that is pushing you up a size. Band-width is a better determinant of fit than cup size.
