Review: Moving Comfort Jubralee Sports Bra, £37
I’m definitely one of those women that have been guilty of wearing the wrong sports bra for years. I tended toward cropped cotton bra tops. After testing the Moving Comforts Jubralee sports bra, I don’t know WHAT I was thinking.
The Jubralee bra is incredibly comfortable and I’ve been testing it on all manner of workouts, from long distance running to skipping, boxing, mountain biking and more. It has not only kept me jiggle-free, it’s achieved this while remaining natural feeling.
I confess to being dubious initially as it has an unusual fastening technique, namely fastening at the back with a three clasp hook and eye device (so far, so normal). But the front fastens using shoulder straps which fix through eyelets at the front and bend back on themselves to attach via velcro.
I’m a C to D cup. I envisaged the straps working their way free mid-run. Or at the very least, the eyelets slowly expanding and ripping the fabric over time. None of that has happened.
But the thing I like most about this bra is that it looks good.
So many sports bras are still stuck in that ‘matronly’, hammock style. The Jubralee comes in flattering colours purple and pink, orange and black, as well as black and white, and looks good showing through your top.
My only reservation – and it’s a small one, (er, or not in my case) is that the sizing for this bra is very different to another brand’s sports bra I’ve tried. It meant that this came up a lot smaller than I was expecting. Of course, that can easily be remedied by ensuring you check the size in the shop before purchase.
Definitely a Fitbich kind of sports bra, attractive, stylish, while also performing brilliantly.
