She's Picky. We're Comfortable.
We love hearing customer feedback about our girlgear. This comment about our Un-Tee sports cami arrived yesterday from Jill D.:
Another word for "picky" is "discerning," and that describes Jill's daughter! She appreciates the many features that make the Un-Tee Sports Cami the perfect light support sports tank top for girls:
"My daughter really likes the tank tops. She is extremely picky about fabric and seams that can be irritating, and she is very comfortable in this tank. Thanks for a great product!"
- Comfortable, moisture-wicking, 4-way stretch fabric with a shelf bra for gentle support.
- Wide straps, flat seams, and tag-free design mean no chafing and no strap droop.
- Perfect by itself or under a sports uniform -- also provides coverage when changing at a game or practice.
"Hands down the best sports bra"
There are plenty of reasons why our Racer Sports Bra for girls is our best selling item: unmatched comfort, superior fit, durability, and value. Blogger Wendy Morelli of Tweenhood, a leading blog for parents of tweens, summed it up in a recent review. She wrote that her 13-year-old hockey-playing daughter "absolutely loves" the Racer:
Whether she's skating suicides on the ice, doing burpees or planks, she said it was extremely comfortable and soft, she didn't feel it at all. It's hands down the best bra she's owned to date. Now that's saying a lot, since all her bras are mostly sports bras, but you can really see and feel the difference with the Racer Sports Bra. The fabric is thicker than other sports bras and it has a good stretch to it."She didn't feel it at all" is one of the most common comments we hear about our sports bras. And we love it! When girls can move and play without even thinking about their clothing, they're free to play -- and be -- their best. And THAT's what Dragonwing girlgear is all about.

Tween, Mom Agree on Dragonwing
Who says that Moms and tween daughters don't agree when it comes to undergarments, in particular bras and sports bras?! Becky and her daughter were so pleased with the fit and performance of the Dragonwing Mesh Racer sports bra that she wrote an online review, entitled "Good fit, soft material. Go by the Measurements on the Size Chart -- It works!"
She'd been wearing another brand loyally, and since she's grown taller, she needed more length in the straps. For the past several months, she's been embarrassed by the resulting push-up effect and annoyed by the constant ride-up. She's tried on multiple brands and models, even women's xxs sizes for the length, but ran into the same problems everywhere: Too much bra and not enough strap. The sizes that fit her height were clearly made for larger-chested girls. The Dragonwing sports bra offers more length and coverage without excess fabric. It truly seems proportioned for a more athletic but developing girl's body. Also, the material on this bra is soft cotton, and both the band and straps are wider than other bras she's tried. She finds that more comfortable, and I like that wider bands and straps offer better support for developing bodies.We love hearing detailed feedback about our performance athletic wear for girls. We're 100% committed to girls getting the perfect fit and use feedback in our design and development of new products.
Review: Tween Loves Half-Tee Sports Top
We love getting positive reviews from girls -- from pre-teen and tween to teens -- who love our girlgear. https://twitter.com/Throwlikeagirl3/status/569333643144929281 Vicki is a fellow sports mom and entrepreneur, the founder of Throw Like A Girl sporty apparel for girls who love sports.

Tween Confidence-Boosting Sports Bra
You've heard me say that our mission is to empower girls to play -- and be -- their best, with freedom and without distraction.
The notion of girls being able to move freely without being self-conscious or distracted by their clothing is simple and yet oh-so-powerful.Robyn, mother of soccer-playing girls ages 8 and 11, wrote to share her -- and her older daughter's -- delight with our Keyhole Sports Bra. Her daughter didn't like the tight fit of other sports bras, especially under her arms. They selected the Keyhole because its design allows for more arm movement, the fit is snug, not tight, and the fabric is super soft and stretchy. A winning combination, as Robyn wrote: Before ordering, Robyn checked our size chart and double-checked her selection with us, just to be sure she'd get the right fit. And she did! We offer free shipping on every order, including for returns and exchanges, to ensure that girls get the right size and perfect fit.
The Best Thing a Girl Can Say About a Bra
Most people don't talk much about their underwear. And if you're a preteen or teen girl, it's likely you really don't want to talk about your bra, especially your first bra, with anyone. That's why we're always thrilled when we hear that girls love their Dragonwing sports bras, not just because of the perfect fit but because it's so comfortable that they aren't even aware of it. In fact, the most frequent comment we hear is some version of "I forgot I was even wearing a bra." That's what Diane P. wrote to tell us after she bought her daughter our Racer Sports Bra in black with teal trim.
"My daughter says she doesn't even realize she has it on because it doesn't dig or irritate her skin. She is super sensitive so that is saying something. I will be ordering another one soon…. Thanks again. Love the product."What are YOU or your daughter looking for in a bra? Please tell us in the comments.
"The Only Sports Bra My Daughter Will Wear"
We love customer feedback of all kinds -- it helps us make the best fitting, best performing girls athletic wear possible. And we especially love to hear that girls love the comfort, performance, and fit of their Dragonwing girlgear. Vicki wrote to say that the Half Tee Sports Top is "the only sports bra my daughter will wear. She loves that it is soft and lower, so she can wear it to all her games knowing that she is covered!!" Super soft and comfortable, the Half-Tee is perfect under everyday school clothes and sports jerseys, especially ones with lower cut or scooped arm holes, like basketball, lacrosse, or track. We also hear that lots of girls wear these sports bras under their pajama tops -- they're THAT comfortable!
Girls Long Sleeve Shirt...Thumbholes!
In her review on MomTrends, teen soccer girl Logan raved about her Chill Weight long sleeve fitted shirt.
I already have two tops that I wear under my soccer jersey on cold days, but the Dragonwing Chill Weight top is going to jump to the front of the line every single time. It’s warm and soft, made of the same material as the leggings. It has a panel on the wrist of each sleeve to wipe sweaty foreheads or running noses, and (drumroll please…) it has thumbholes! These clothes fit and suit me to a “T” and have all the little details that make a big difference.Our Chill Weight long sleeve athletic shirt is available in Azure Blue, Black, and White.
Teen Review of Racer Sports Bra
We're thrilled with the recent review by Mom Trends of our Racer Sports Bra for Girls, Chill Weight long sleeve top and spandex leggings for girls. Logan, the soccer-playing, 8th grader intern who wrote the review, captured the essence and mission of Dragonwing.
Dragonwing girlgear is a a tween and teen girls athletic wear brand that’s embarking on a mission to change how girls play sports. Here’s the deal–Dragonwing girlgear wants girls to be able to concentrate on their sports without worrying about adjusting their sports bra or tugging down their shorts.Since Logan's review covers three of our products, I'll include each one in a separate blog post. First up, our Racer girls sports bra. Here's what Logan wrote about our best-selling sports bra:
I love the material the Racer sports bra was made of. It’s soft, snug, and oh-so-stretchy. The dragonfly design on the back is really cute, and the long length combined with the wide band means that it stays in place without digging into your skin. I normally don’t wear a sports bra anytime I don’t have to, but I want to wear this everywhere. The clothes are made just for girls’ bodies, and they’re all age appropriate. By that I mean, none of the bras are padded or lacy, and everything is snug, but not tight. All the clothes have flat seams and tags, so there’s no rubbing or discomfort.Stay tuned. Our super soft and comfortable Chill Weight leggings for girls are next!
Un-Tee Sports Cami Raves
Our Un-Tee Sports Camis have been flying off the proverbial shelves here at Dragonwing girlgear HQ! Girls love the way they fit and feel under school and sports uniforms and "everyday" clothes. Snug but not tight with just the right amount of support and coverage. Adrienne, a blogger and mother of 10- and 13-year old daughters, was so delighted with her girls' Un-Tees that she posted a review on The Momalog Facebook Page. Adrienne's full review was a bit longer. I've posted it here because it didn't quite fit so well on the image:
Moms of tween/teen girls and athletes: Have you been looking for solid, comfortable, well-made undergarments for your daughter to wear under her uniforms, for sports, dance, under tank tops etc.. but can't find the quality? I just bought some items from Dragonwing girlgear (basic white tank undershirt w. built in bras) for my tween & my teen and these products are AMAZING! And built to last. My daughters love these.Thanks, Adrienne! Our Un-Tee Sports Cami is available in a range of sizes and colors.
