I was excited to try some of the Zensah Clothing. Zensah is best known for its compression socks and sleeves, but they make so much more. Last year, I reviewed the Zensah Running Face Mask, a great face mask in busy areas of San Francisco.
About the brand Zensah:
Zensah was created in 2004 and derived from the Italian word “SENZA” – meaning “to be without.” Why? They believe athletes should be without limits.
Recently they started using more recycled and sustainable materials in every product they make. They also make the garments by adding materials until they are completed, instead of making excessive fabric and cutting it down. For every 1000 pairs of seamless leg sleeves produced, Zensah saves 125 kg of fabric waste over typical manufacturing processes. I’m all about sustainable clothing, so this excites me!
My Experience with Zensah Clothing:
Seamless Running Sports Bra:
The Zensah Seamless Running Sports Bra is designed to provide comfort and performance. It uses proprietary Zensah Fabric.
What makes the Zensah Seamless Running Sports Bra Different?
- Seamless design to prevent chafing
- Moisture wicking and anti-odor
- Body-mapped with a racerback design
- Easy to take on and off
- Made in the USA
The Zensah Seamless Running Sports Bra comes in s/m, m/l, l/xL. I ordered an s/m which made the most sense for me. Typically I wear a 32A sports bra. When the Zensah running clothing came, I was amazed at how soft it was. Putting it on, it felt comfortable. While running, everything stayed in place. It fits well, stretched appropriately, and I didn’t have to worry. The only thing lacking for me was pads. I am a fan of sewn-in or removable pads, and I was disappointed there wasn’t that option. No one wants a bunch of bra pads floating around (is that what they are even called?) but I do appreciate they provide modesty.
Other than that, it’s a great sports bra!
At just $44, it’s one of the cheaper sports bras around.
Overall, I think the Zensah Running Sports Bra is a great one, and it’s not as expensive as other sports bras.

Seamless Bike Shorts:
The Zensah Seamless Bike Shorts are engineered with compression panels, comfortable ribbing, high-rise wide waistband, and super soft performance fabric. According to Zensah, these biker shorts will support you throughout any activity on your schedule. Like the other Zensah clothing, the Seamless bike shorts are super soft.
What makes the Zensah Seamless Bike Shorts Different?
- Wide, comfortable high-rise waistband\
- Seamless construction for second skin fit
- Sweat-wicking biker short fabric
- 6″ Inseam biker length
- Anti-chafe & ultra comfortable
They are available in small, medium, and large. Admadetialy, I was hoping there was an XS, but the small stretched and fit well. Like the sports bra, I was amazed at how soft they were. I was definitely a fan. While using them for running, they perform well and are super flattering. In fact, I really don’t have any complaints. I didn’t chafe. They were flattering. They fit well. What more is there to like?
At $58, they are one of the more expensive shorts I’ve owned. I do think they are worth it, and they perform well.
