OK, so we haven’t quite yet reached summer but at the press launch for Brooks Running and Moving Comfort UK, there is LOTS to look forward to

Fantastic, stylish but effective sports bras from Moving Comfort UK

Brooks have a special place in our heart, partly because of their good running logo, #runhappy, and because their offices in Steyning are quite near Fitbitch HQ.

When we go to a Brooks and Moving ComfortUK press launch, there are no expensive DJs pumping out the coolest of tunes, just people who are passionate about their running not just selling shoes.

And what a great range they have for us coming up in Autumn-Winter 2014-2015.

Our pick of the collections are the PureGrit trail shoes, which have been redesigned for this year with the help of running ultra supremo, Scott Jurek, as well as their Sprint Jacket. And we LOVE all of the fab, stylish AND effective sports bras from Moving Comfort UK (here’s hoping that they increase their range of UK sizes over the next few years).

Watch out for our individual reviews later in the summer.

Do YOU wear the right sports bra?

Talk to most women, from the regular exerciser and runner to the just starting out and the one thing they have in common? That they have not found a sports bra that both supports them and feels comfortable.

More shockingly still, over 75% of women who exercise in the UK do not wear a sports bra according to Shock Absorber.

If you have been exercising for a long time, it is easy to dismiss such statistics, safe in the knowledge that you know your stuff. I did.

That was until I went to the launch of the new SweatShop at Trump Street and discovered I was a 32 D. I thought I was a 36B.

It is essential to wear the right size, not only for comfort and security but for your health. Wear a bra that does not support you correctly and you could stretch your ligaments and no amount of exercise will correct this.

But which bra to choose?

Nowadays, there are a whole range of choices from Moving Comfort UK to Freya, not to mention own brand stores such as H&M and Marks&Spencer, not just the cast iron, ugly matronly white and black sports bras of old. But which bra to choose?

Over the next six weeks, we will be putting a whole range of sports bras through a rigorous testing process to see which are the best for active women who run, box and cycle.

Found a sports bra that you swear by? Let us know which you give full marks.
