We remember it well: Outdoor Voices' Athena Crop is one of the pieces that put the Instagram-favorite athleisure brand on the map. Suddenly, the high-necked, cropped top and its matching leggings started taking over your feed — and your yoga class. And, we have a feeling its latest launch is going to have the same effect.
The Venus Crop Bra, which launched earlier this week and sells for $60, is similar to everything you love about the Athena crop (admit it — you have it in at least two colorways at this point), but features more of a deep-V back detail. Like the rest of OV's offering, this sports-bra-crop-top hybrid has a supportive fit, is double-layered, and has no cups. This one, though, has an open back for added breathing room — so for those of you who regularly break a sweat, this could be a good option to scoop up for the rest of your summer workouts.
"The Venus Crop is a nice compliment to our Athena, with the same high coverage in the front for a wide range of motion, but a more playful back," Alexa Day Silva, the brand's women's design director, tells Refinery29. "With geometric color blocking, it's an easy match for any of our bottoms — especially in our navys and grays,"
