The Active Women's Bra Top from Zoca is a very reasonably priced technical crop top, offering the majority of the features you'd look for. It's a straightforward racer-back scoop neck design, is made from a pleasingly soft polyamide/elastane mix fabric, comes in a variety of colours and offers support for low impact activities.
It's incredibly comfortable to wear, with the soft pliable fabric wicking moisture effectively and quickly and no seams rubbing or causing pressure. The fit is slightly on the generous side for the sizing, and the levels of stretch mean that those on the cusp of two sizes might want to consider going down a size. On the other hand, the sizing will please larger busted women, although only for low impact activities. The levels of support offered by the top are not high, and I'd be hesitant about running in the top for any length of time, but for cycling it's spot on, keeping everything where it should be with maximum comfort.
Despite its moisture movement abilities, the fabric is slightly on the warm side and those who run hot may want to leave this one until autumn, winter or spring. Or the brave could wear it on its own in summer, as it's perfectly decent.
A good value, basic, very comfortable sports crop top.
