New Product Release – PINKCLOVER Breastband
I love helping active women find the best support for their breasts. As many of you know it was my own personal struggle in this area that gave me the determination to find women a better solution…sportsbrasdirect.com.au was born. The most common question that women ask me is “what will stop the bounce?” There are some amazing, well designed sports bras available that provide great support around the breasts. However none of them completely stop vertical breast bounce. It is for this reason I’m really excited about a new product recently launched in Australia to beat breast bounce; the PINKCLOVER Breastband.
What is the PINKCLOVER Breastband?
It is an athletic support band designed to add compression across the top of the breasts to prevent bounce and breast damage while you exercise. Research shows that reducing strain across the mid to upper part of the breast is critical in reducing pain and damage to the internal structures of the breast. The exact area the Breastband supports! Worn with a sports bra it provides a complete support solution for your breasts. Gotta love that!
On their website PINKCLOVER note the Breastband;
– Minimises breast bounce, pain & sagging and maximises support, comfort & confidence. Tick!
– Helps prevent breast ligament damage, pain and sagging. Tick!
– Allows you to be active with confidence by losing the bounce. Tick!
– It’s designed for women of all shapes and sizes. Tick!
– Is made from soft, breathable fabric for ultimate comfort. Tick!
That’s a lot of ticks. Love it!
Does it really work?
I can honestly say yes! I have been putting it to the test for about a month and now will not exercise without it. Teamed with my sports bra it is an amazing product. I literally get zero breast bounce when I’m wearing it.
It did feel a bit strange, almost constrictive, when I first wore the Breastband for a run. However I adjusted the fastening (it comes in 4 sizes, each with 3 hook and eye closures like a bra so easy to find your correct fit) and the position of the band. I then found it very comfortable. The best position for me was for the band to be a couple of cm’s above my nipples at the front and the clasp at the back directly over the top of my sports bra clasp, making sure it was pulled down away from my armpits.
The fit needs to be snug for the band to be most effective and stay put. It is made from a soft material and did not move or chafe during a sweaty 10km trail run. Most importantly it held my boobs down brilliantly, absolutely no vertical movement. How good it was to finish a run with only sore legs!
I have also tested it during a high intensity plyometrics class with crazy amounts of jumping around and quick changes of direction. Not once did I have to think about breast movement. I could just focus on the class in complete comfort…just talking about breast comfort here, not lungs gasping for breath!
Not Just for High Intensity!
PINKCLOVER also note it is not just for high intensity workouts so I wore it to my Yoga class. Now Yoga is not something I associate with breast bounce so I was a bit skeptical about what advantage it would provide over just wearing my sports bra by itself. However when I stopped to think about this I realised how often I have to adjust my bra after some ‘wish I was more flexible’ yoga moves. There is always that risk of boobage spilling out the top when I’m bent over. It’s not a pleasant experience discreetly trying to tuck it back in once I’m upright again. Well not anymore the PINKCLOVER Breastband solves this issue too. Its position across the upper part of my breasts really helped me to feel secure throughout my yoga class. This product really is effective during all types of activity.
Check out the official ‘See it in Action’ video which is definitely worth a watch.
So, in summary, sportsbrasdirect.com.au is really excited to be the only stockist in Australia (aside from the manufacturer themselves) of this fabulous new product, which has been a real game changer for me and I know it will be for many other ladies too. I highly recommend the PINKCLOVER BREASTBAND.
If you don’t live in Australia or New Zealand, the manufacturer pinkcloveractive.com deliver worldwide at a surprisingly cheap rate.
Anyway ladies do your ‘girls’ a favour and check it out.
