Review - Shefit Ultimate High Impact Sports Bra April 22 2018

Jess Scott tries out the Shefit sports bra at her first Netball game for the season.

A few weeks ago, if you were to tell me I would play a netball game in a bra with NO UNDERWIRE, with boobs as big as mine - I would have nervously laughed at the thought of 1) ouch - the pain! and 2) how am I going to avoid knocking myself out?! natural double D’s don’t exactly sit nicely without support. But then something truly amazing happened, I gave the Shefit sports bra a go, and I played my first ever netball game in a bra with no underwire, with boobs as big as mine.

How to find the right sports bra when you have big boobs April 03 2018

Ladies with big breasts heed these wise words:

Why is it important to wear a good sports bra while riding? March 28 2018 1 Comment

Why is it important to wear a good sports bra while riding?

After all, all we do is sit there right? Or so people think.

As a show rider it is all about the look, so while you want it to look like you are just sitting there, believe me we aren’t! We are constantly scrutinising our horse, are they forward enough, are they collected enough, do I have enough bend, where is the rouge horse in the ring compared to where I am, then there is the self-assessment, ok eyes up, shoulders back, heels down, don’t drop the outside hand, what the heck is my left leg doing?!?!

How to Pick a Sports Bra for Cycling January 13 2018

The right sports bra can make all the difference to comfort and performance while cycling.

As a F cup road cyclist I need a sports bra that gives me medium support  however, the times I've gone off road, I'll wear one of my high impact sports bras usually reserved for running.

So my first tip is, think about the level of support you need and of course us ladies with more up top might have to grab something with firmer support.

Review: Enell Sports Bra October 26 2017

I go for a fairly sedate jog first thing every other morning. I’m out early because that way I don’t give myself time to make excuses and I prefer the cover of darkness. I also need sports bras for hill walking, skiing, really brisk walking and very occasional (and almost certainly ill-advised) trips to trampoline parks. In short, there are times when I want my boobs to be under control.

So I tried the Enell Sports Bra.

And, finally, one pro tip that is indispensable. When you try on a sports bra for yoga, be sure to come into a forward bend first thing. If you fall out doing that simple move, this is not the bra for you.

Women are prepared to spend big on running shoes and other sports gear, but what about sports bras?

A study conducted by the Portsmouth Research Group in Breast Health showed that, while most women experience breast pain when running (whatever their cup size may be), 44% of them don’t do anything to alleviate their pain… whereas a good sports bra could transform their routine.

Guest Review - Shefit High Impact Sports Bra September 20 2017

"As a horse rider I have always struggled to find a sports bra that has enough support but that is also comfortable enough to wear all day as well. 

The Shefit sports bra fits both criteria incredibly well reducing just about all bounce but also with having easily adjustable shoulder and rib straps I can increase the support needed just before I ride then loosen off again once I have ridden."

Facebook bans Berlei ad because there are boobs! September 09 2017

We've just added the Berlei Shift Underwire Sports Bra to our collection and I recently shared their latest video as I love that depicts women and their boobs in different situations.

Funny but oh so can relate however, Facebook have banned the advert because of "the pixelated nudity, overt focus on bouncing breasts and overly zoomed images." 

For real???

Review: Freya Active Crop Top Sports Bra Review January 19 2017

Being the sports bra of choice by the England Netball team I of course just HAD to try one of these bras.

And as I’ve recently starting running several times per week I knew that I would be able to give this bra the perfect workout.
