Recently a group of Operation Movers were invited to experience the unique fitting system and fantastic service offered at She Science. Each Mover was prescribed the best sports bra for their needs, and in the coming weeks we will share their thoughts on the products.
When I started running I realised pretty quickly that a good sports bra was not a want but a must have. Anyone who has ever experienced underboob chafing will know exactly why that is.
I bought a Berlei Ultimate Performance sports bra because I could not get my head around any bra without underwires. It was great for a while, but in time I found that the band underneath started to roll up during a run and I needed to wear a crop top as well to feel supported.
It was around that time that I first hear about the Moving Comfort Juno. I ordered one online and from my first run I knew I had found the perfect bra for me. Despite the lack of wires, it was supportive and comfortable and I ran hundred’s of kilometres in it through rain, hail and shine without once experiencing any chafing.
When I attended my fitting at She Science I was interested to see if they would recumbent the same bra, especially as I had lost a fair bit of weight and my boobs had taken off along with it.
After being measured up I tried a few different bras out using their video technology and a treadmill to assess for support and stability. While the other brands were good, they just didn’t offer the same level of support for my shape and so I left with a beautiful new blue Juno, albeit in a smaller band size than I was wearing because like many women I hadn’t been fitted in years and was wearing the wrong size for me.
Because I have been pregnant and/or breastfeeding for so long, compressive support is important for me when I run. My breasts are definitely nothing like they were before all those years of hard work, and I’m happy to have found the perfect bra for my needs. When they change shape again as they are bound to in time, I’ll be heading back to She Science for sure!
