Body & Spirit
Runners are superstitious. We have special routines, unshakeable habits and go-to outfits for the days when we need to perform our best. That’s why we designed the Bell Lap with both psychology and performance in mind. Updated for Spring 2020 in a supportive fabric and silhouette, we tested the new Bell Lap over 26.2 miles at the Atlanta Marathon Trials.
Spec’d for Speed
Finished with our signature sash, this unique take on the running crop top features a speed-ready silhouette cut from the same compressive and soft fabric we use in our Allston Bra, Run Bra and bottoms. The deep cut shoulders allow for an unrestricted arm swing and the improved construction on this version isn’t as tight across the rib cage. We moved the elastic up to just under the bust for added support and redesigned the hem to fit softly against your ribs. Wear it with or without a bra depending on your preference.
The new Bell Lap is made from an Italian blend of 57% nylon and 43% elastane, which ensures a supportive yet comfortable fit that won’t dig into your chest. It’s soft and breathable, with plenty of stretch and quick drying times.
Ready To Strike
We tested the new Bell Lap Top over two speeds: on Kate Raphael at an indoor 5k at BU’s Valentine Invitational and on our OTQ Program women at the Marathon Trials in Atlanta. The verdict? This is the perfect top for any distance, with plenty of support for higher speeds and all the comfort you need to go the full 26.2.
