Strong, confident women enjoy a good sweat – and being a winner in every area of their life.
When it comes to athletic wear, smart, no-nonsense women with a passion for sports and fitness want gear that keeps them cool, agile and focused on winning a race or completing a workout. A major priority is a highperformance sports bra, and adidas has a great one for women who want to train hard with confidence. Besides being stylishly functional, the adidas Racerback Bra – with a classic three-stripe design in racing red or classic black – is cleverly constructed for maximum support. This lets you concentrate on your workout instead of worrying about your body. The bra is perfect for both high- and low-impact workouts, as it helps to minimise extra chest movement. It’s designed to provide full coverage for maximum comfort and modesty as well. Plus, it keeps you comfortably cool and dry, thanks to the ultra-breathable ClimaCool® fabric that wicks sweat away. Then there are breathable filter foam pads and a curved Power Mesh back to keep you well ventilated. And adjustable side closures mean the bra is easy to put on and take off again. With the adidas Racerback Bra, whether you’re off to pilates, kickboxing, or about to run another marathon, you’ve got this! Stay cool as you go harder.
THE RIGHT FIT
A sports bra is the most important part of your workout kit. Most of us are wearing the wrong type for our body and workout. To get a proper fi t:
1. GO FOR SUPPORT as our bodies don’t provide muscular support for the breasts. When we exercise, our chest can move up and down by as much 12cm, enough to cause stretching and long-term tissue damage. Everyday bras with regular bands don’t provide the support you need when exercising. Highersupport bras, on the other hand, have wider straps to help keep everything in place so you can focus on your workout.
2. CHOOSE A RACERBACK STYLE for a full range of movement, and to minimise chafing.
3. PICK A HIGH-PERFORMANCE FABRIC that wicks away sweat and keeps you cool during your workout.
4. HAND-WASH YOUR SPORTS BRA WITH COLD WATER AND A MILD DETERGENT to help maintain its shape. To make sure it’s always in top form, replace your bra after 100 washes.
The adidas Racerback Bra is available for $59 at all adidas stores and selected adidas retailers.
