Frustrated With Your Sports Bra? - Here are 6 Reasons Why
Frustrated with your sports bra? Find yourself having to wear two sports to get enough support? Can't find one that's comfortable? MAAREE founder, Mari, gives a breakdown of the features you should be considering when sports bra shopping. Helping you to find your perfect sports bra.
Non-stretch or stretch fabric?
Strategically placed stretch and non-stretch panels can make or break a bra in my opinion. I believe it's the main cause of . Do you know if your current sports bras have an elastic or non-elastic material in the main body? Many women don’t take this into consideration when sports bra shopping. Furthermore, there isn’t one right way to have it. It’s down to preference and the activity you’ll be wearing it for.
If you’re someone who looks for ultimate support when it comes to your activity, especially if you do high-impact sports, you’re likely to find a better-performing bra if you get one where the front of the bra is made using non-stretch or limited stretch fabric. If the fabric is less likely to stretch under mtion, then so are your boobs.
Women who like to wear bras that are donned over the head normally are drawn more to sports bra that are made using very elastic fabrics. It makes the job a lot easier! Some find them more comfortable and they will likely have fewer seam lines on them. Meaning a smoother silhouette when worn under a t-shirt.
When a sports bra uses a cobination of both elastic and non-elastic fabrics, it can be game-changing! Allowing your rib cage to easily expand and contract under heavy breathing whilst providing ultimate support for your cups. The perfect sports bra balance needed between support and comfort.
Overband® Technology is a new concept designed by Mari, founder of MAAREE. I always believed that upward motion was neglected and yet crucial to solve to improve overall motion reduction after testing sports bra performance in lab conditions for a number of the top brands in the world. As the saying goes, what goes up, must come down! I have designed this curved panel into both sports bra to provide superior support. MAAREE is the first and only brand in the world to incorporate this technology into their sports bras.
With MAAREE I not only wanted to provide sports bras that deliver higher support and performance but I wanted to help women become more informed and confident on the subject. There’s so much ambiguity around sports bras and getting the best support, let’s start making things easier for ourselves so that you're no longer frustrated with your sports bra.
My sports bras are the only ones in the world with Overband® Technology to reduce upwards motion. The collection consists of the Empower Medium-Impact Sports Bra, the Solidarity High-Impact Sports Bra and the Warrior Leggings.
Our Solidarity Sports Bra has a non-elastic main body, with elastic wings and multi-way straps. This guarantees that it's easy to wear but still has minimal bounce. However, our Empower Sports Bra has a fully-elastic body and includes a clasp to provide maximum comfort and that it's easy to wear.
