From Office to Trail – Brooks Anyday

I don’t know about you, but I am always in a hurry after work to hit the road, trail or track. Even more so now when daylight savings has ended and we are limited with the amount of daylight left to guide the way. So I really hate wasting precious sunlight getting changed once the clock hits 5!

anydayblackfront_clipped_rev_1.jpegI don’t usually like wearing my sports bra to work. But the Anyday bra by Brooks is the perfect everyday bra to serve the purpose of work to workout.

A great soft fit with light padding, giving a nice shape- it looks like a normal bra but it will give you a higher level of support, combining encapsulation and compression.

The bra is quite low cut, and you have the option of wearing the straps in traditional or cross back. This enables a wide range of outfit choices.

This bra does not come in a size 8, but I found that it was a small fit and hence I was able to fit well into a 10.

Overall a great compromise between different functions.

First Time Fit Top Five

Do you remember your first bra fitting? For most of us it was an awkward, embarrassing 10 minutes of our life in front of a total stranger. For others our first bra might have arrived wrapped in a plastic bag and been sat subtly on the end of our bed!

They call it puberty blues for a reason!

But it doesn’t have to be that awkward.

A sports bra is a great option for a first bra for developing girls and often it’s during their sporting or school physical education activities that students first start to feel like they need a bra.

Getting fitted for a sports bra rather than for an everyday bra can help eliminate some of the angst from a situation. This is because you’re purchasing a technical sports product for a noticeable need that will make them focus on feeling more comfortable rather than being focussed on being uncomfortable in some new clothing contraption!

But here are our Top Five Reasons a Sports Bra is a great first time fitting option:

  1. Comfort: They are more likely to be a crop/compression style of product. This can, in some cases, assist not only to support but to minimise the appearance of breasts and provide coverage that feels similar to a bathing suit.

 

  1. Adjustable: There is some great product on the market which will include the straps being adjustable at the front which can allow for breast tissue growth, while still being as supportive as possible.

 

  1. Wire Free: There are often very supportive options that do not have underwire. Underwire is in Sports Bras and everyday bras simply to enhance shape – and there is nothing wrong with wearing it. But for first time bra wearers they can often take some getting used to. Starting in a bra without an underwire can be a great first step.

 

  1. Adaptable: They fit with a student’s lifestyle. Often around the age of a first bra young people are sitting at their desk one minute and running around the next. Sports Bras can be comfortable enough to wear all day, whilst providing support when it’s demanded.

 

  1. Fashion: They come in a great range of colours, and let’s face it, that matters!

 

Most importantly a well-fitting and comfortable bra – whether everyday or Sports – can have a big impact on confidence. Starting out with the right fit and right knowledge can change what can be an awkward experience into an empowering one.

Melbourne’s newest Sports Bra store – She Science

After years of development it’s been an absolute joy to watch my farfetched dream slowly turn into a reality. So with just 1 month to go until our (hopeful) launch date I am thrilled to announce that Melbourne’s newest Sports Bra store, She Science, will be opening in Kew this August!

My goal for She Science is to provide a set of solutions to the problems that so many women face when purchasing Sports Bras. Many women unnecessarily opt out of leading an active lifestyle due to the discomfort and embarrassment caused by their breasts.

She Science will offer a variety of in store shopping experiences that can be tailored to each individual’s personal preferences. There will be an emphasis on achieving the best fit, enhancing ones form and prescribing the most functionally appropriate option for each customer.

We hope that these three things will improve the comfort, confidence and performance of our customers.

Our stock includes the following brands:

Enell

Shock Absorber

Moving Comfort

2XU

Nike

Berlei

Anita Active

This carefully selected, tried and tested range will cover A – J cups and be suitable for women participating in any array of sports.

Best Sports Bras for small busted women

Before you go ahead and ask… yes, smaller busted women still need support when they exercise!

Women with larger breasts will naturally experience more breast bounce during activity compared to smaller busted women. But the simple fact is that the bounce still occurs and in order to improve one’s comfort & performance and reduce the chance of irreversible damage every women, regardless of bust size, should wear a Sports Bra during activity.

So since most of the information pieces seen in the media focus on bras for the bigger busted woman, I’ve decided to give the less endowed ladies some lovin’ today.

While I’m no card carrying member of the ‘Itty Bitty Titty Committee’ I’ve still been able to put together a solid list of good options that I have come up with during my stock buying for our new store.

In no apparent order, here are my TOP 5:

1. Nike Victory Pro Bra

This is Nike’s top selling Sports Bra. Masses of women around the world use this as their go to option! It’s a racer back bra with no adjustable straps or back band, so it needs to fit just perfectly. It gets it support by using firm and compressive materials that resist breast movement.

2. 2XU contour

This slightly padded Sports Bra is a great option for women looking for something that offers a little less bust coverage. This teams well with slightly lower cut training tops. The back can be left as a traditional U shaped closure, or there is the option to cinch the straps in together so you get that extra firm feeling across the chest.

3. Rebound Racer

This bra starts at a B cup, so excludes any A cup readers. I love the adjustability of this piece! It has easy to alter velcro bra straps and a traditional hook and eye on the back band that forms the base of the racer back style. The bra looks like a traditional racer back sports bra but it cleverly disguises thin moulded cups that separate the breasts leaving a great flattering shape.

4. Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra

For smaller busted women that enjoy maximum coverage, this is your bra! This same design caters for women up to a G cup so you won’t be left short of support. This bra has double closures at the back which aims to leave you with maximum support and total shoulder range of motion. The materials used are thin and light so it’s a pleasure to wear.

5. Berlei Underwire Electrify

Berlei’s top seller and major marketing piece, if you’re an Aussie you’ll have seen this piece on their latest TV campaign. Built like a traditional underwire bra the electrify gains instant approval from most that try it on. The firm materials used allow for maximum body movement with minimal breast bounce. Whilst the underwire doesn’t give extra support as such, it does give you a great breast shape!
