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.

What is THIR? A review of the multifunctional headwear piece.

What is THIR? Well, That’s How I Roll….

thir australia 9The best thing that I love about running is it’s inclusivity. All walks of life can engage in the activity because it’s free. The old, the young, the big, the small, the rich and the poor. You don’t really need anything but a set of legs that will take you where you want to go.  But as we get more enthusiastic we start collecting more gear and we start to get more technical about it. The lowest-drop runners, the lightest clothes, the best sports bras, the                                                                                            most effective compression.

One of my essential pieces of gear, however, goes back to basics. It is called a THIRband, more commonly known as ‘multi-functional headwear.’

WHAT IS IT?

A simple, tubular piece of fabric.  It is made of Enduracool- a microfiber fabric with moisture wicking properties designed to keep you cool in the heat and thermal properties that keep you warm in the cold.

The best part is that the bands come in a wide range of bold colours to funk up every outfit!

 HISTORY OF THIR:

A New Zealand based company, with distribution in Australia by THIR Australia (thir.com.au).  The company has a strong focus on the outdoor sports community, sponsoring a number of trailrunning events in Australia, such as the Surf Coast Trail Marathon and the Wonderland Run, and countless others in New Zealand. They have recently been involved in making custom bands for White Ribbon, with a large proportion of sales going to the charity.  They have also commenced making custom bands for local running groups, with significant contributions going back into the clubs.

WHAT TO DO WITH IT?

My most common uses are however:

–          As a headband to keep my ears warm on those cold mornings or on the highest peaks.

–          As an eye mask when travelling. Also helps to hold ear plugs in.

–          Hot climates– I ran a race on the Sunshine coast in November last year. I definitely wasn’t used to the heat or humidity, but a THIR dunked in iced water and then wrapped around my neck was THE BEST THING EVER!

–          Sweat band– wrap it around your wrist. Fairly self explanatory.

–          Face mask:

  • When travelling – believe it or not, my THIR came in handy when a moth jumped on a plane and they had to spray the entire cabin with an insecticide. Not ideal race prep!
  • When running- If it is really cold, the THIRband can help to warm up the air before entering your lungs, making breathing more efficient. I have also come across areas in the bush where they have been burning off. My THIR was great to keep out the smoke and dust.

WHERE DO I GET IT?

She Science stock a range of different colours. See instore or online for details.

Other colours available from thir.com.au

I hope that is how you will roll!

* Disclaimer- I started wearing THIRbands a few years ago because I loved the concept. I soon became an ambassador for the brand, and wanted to find a way to bring the bands to Australia. This saw the birth of THIR Australia with my partner Tegyn.
