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.

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.

How much support do you need from your Sports Bra?

I thought it’d be easier to turn this post in to a diagram as pictures apparently speak a thousand words and I was turning this in to a thesis.

Choosing a support level for your particular needs can be tricky, especially as most people will attempt to go for one option that will tick all boxes. For this reason, it’s important you always purchase the maximum level of support you require for your activity profile. That’s the only way one bra can be versatile enough to cater for all your activity needs.

Now obviously the scale below is just a guide.  Each individual’s breast motion can vary immensly within the same size catergory due to variable tissue makeup of the breast. The amount of breast motion one has is what ultimately determines how much control you need out of your bra for both activity and everyday living.
