Moving Comfort favourite Jubralee Sports Bra is back

We are so excited to say the Jubralee – a She Science favourite (and my personal favourite) Sports Bra is back and we are the first retailer in Australia to have access to this stock!

The Jubralee hasn’t been available in Australia for almost two years. Now, under the Brooks label rather than Moving Comfort, it has returned – unchanged.

This Sports Bra is high impact, straight back and wire free. It also happens to be maternity appropriate, with the straps adjusting with Velcro at the front.

IMG_7442I personally use it for yoga and running, including over rocky trail, and I love the soft rib cage band and padded fastener which ensures a chafe free experience. I always feel secure it in it, even when running downhill at speed or skipping during a boxing session.

It has a seam free moulded cup on the interior providing a smooth feel and encapsulation and the interior front yoke limits vertical breast movement. The Jubralee is light weight, moisture wicking and thin enough for Summer temperatures but its double layer of fabric provides enough coverage for ‘’high beam’’ modesty.

It has the look of a crop, the compression and encapsulating support of a high impact Sports Bra, great coverage to reduce vertical escape and is comfortable and easy to get on and off – no matter how sweaty you’ve gotten. It also dries easily overnight.

350042_383_mf_Jubralee_preview.jpeg_clipped_rev_1As someone who has experienced some neck and shoulder tension I struggle with racerback bras. I also experience Exercise Induced Breast Discomfort – but not with the Jubralee. I love the wide straps of this bra, and always feel as if I’m secure while barely noticing I’m wearing a bra. My breasts frequently fluctuate in cup size and having the front adjusting Velcro system allows me to accommodate for this. These are the reasons  I keep coming back to this bra again and again.

The Jubralee is now available in 10-16 D-F Cups and 18 D-E Cups. It is not currently available in 20-22 D and DD Cups but it is possible these sizes may become available in the coming Winter Season.

I highly recommend you try it out with our motion analysis system next time you’re in store. While all body and breast shapes and personal preferences differ it just might give your current favourite sports bra a run for its money.

A Sports Bra That Has Everything You Want For Sport

Comfort, support, feeling good! Three things you want in a bra when playing sport!

I originally noticed how unsupportive the bra I was wearing was, when on one of my training runs I caught my reflection in a shop window as I ran past. I was horrified! It just so happened that one of my run routes was past the She Science store. Needless to say, seeing that ”bounce” was more than enough motivation for me to get a specialised sports bra fitting.

Wotto Collingwood V Adelaide (003)My in-store experience at She Science was extremely pleasant. I was met with a friendly face and helpful service. Not only was I fitted, I was able to wear test the bra on the treadmill to put it through its paces!

I was fitted for the Brooks* Juno*. From the moment I put this bra on I loved it! In fact, I loved it so much I had to go back and purchase two more.

The Juno is wire free and has smooth seams which means no chaffing and a super comfortable fit. Its high coverage and racer back configuration makes it a supportive, firm fit which really reduces the bounce.

The front adjusting straps is a practical addition as straps can be tightened while wearing the bra. One of my team mates has this bra and she has found it to be convenient whilst still breastfeeding her youngest.

I have found the thin foam moulded cups an added bonus for AFL, especially on a cold night at footy training when taking a chest mark!

I used to dread putting my old sports bras on, as I knew I would end up with wire digging in, indent marks from my straps and the bra not actually doing its job.Wotto Devils 2017 (003)

I am so glad I found the Juno as it’s the most comfortable sports bra I have ever worn. Do yourself a favour, as they say ”look good, feel good, play good”!

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.

There is plenty to love about the Moving Comfort Vixen Sports Bra.

This pull over style bra works well for A – D cup ladies looking for a firm support and great shape.

A key feature in the Vixen is the moulded cups. The moulding ensures that shape is enhanced without adding too much volume and nipple show is completely eliminated. Each thin moulded cup is sewn in to the garment to ensure that it stays perfectly in place.

The racer back design means that to get the bra on body you need to pull it over your head. The firmness in the materials ensure that the garment isn’t damaged or stretched during this process, but because of this you should expect the bra to be a bit of a ‘squeeze’ to get in to. The band around the back should fit firmly, this firmness provides your support.

With no fixtures on the straps or the band at the back we love this bra for yoga, pilates and other sessions that involve laying supine (with your back against the floor).

The Vixen works well under most gym tops as the slightly lower neckline reduces the chance for bra exposure. This is another popular feature with women in store.

As we know, no bra will work for every shape and size. We find the Vixen works best for tall women, or women who are long in the torso. This is because the straps cannot be shortened at all. You may find the sizing system this bra uses a little different to most. Below is a conversion for how the sizing works against Australian sizes.

XS A/B = 8A and 8B

S A/B = 10A and 10B

M A/B = 12A and 12B

L  A/B = 14A and 14B

XS C/D = 8C and 8D

S C/D = 10C and 10D

M C/D = 12C and 12D

L C/D = 14C and 14D

The Yoga Bra Checklist

You might not believe this, but I’ve actually been more uncomfortable wearing an ill-appropriate bra during a Yoga class than I have been in a Body Combat class.
Just because Yoga happens to be a low impact activity, doesn’t mean breast support needs to become a low priority.
Here are a few key points to consider when looking for a Yoga Bra you’ll be comfortable in all class.

 

1. Coverage is key.

Make sure the neckline of your Yoga bra completely covers your breast tissue. This will have you feeling secure during any Downward Dog style poses.

2. Be choosey with the hook and eye clasps.     

A – D cup sized women should be able to go with a pull over style Yoga Bra that completely avoids any hook and eye clasps and will keep you comfortable during any supine poses. For ladies with a larger bust choose a bra that has flat hook and eye clasps, fastens at the front or uses cushioning behind the clasps to keep you comfy when you’re lying flat.

3. Moulded cups cover up.

A Moulded cup can reduce embarrassment caused by nipple show under tight clothes. Many women avoid a moulded cup as to not add volume to their bust. However, when fitted properly moulded cup Sports Bras will leave the most flattering shape on all different sizes.

4. Stick with a racer back.

To ensure you get an unrestricted shoulder range of motion choose a bra with a racer back strap configuration. For larger busted women that might mean finding a bra that the straps can be crossed or cinched to mimic the racer back design.
