Freya Active Advice

Choose the right sports bra for you

Freya-Active-050112

The Freya Active sports bra collection offers you maximum hold and support so you can deliver maximum performance, whatever your sport. But how do you know which style is for you? Take a look at our guide below to see the key features and benefits each sports bra design has to offer and find out the differences between each style.

There are three styles available: soft cup, underwired and moulded racer back, because Freya Active understand that not everyone is the same. So what makes their sports bras the best out there?


All Freya active styles are…

• Average to high coverage for high performance
• Suitable for all sports, so you don’t need to buy multiple styles for different activities
• Non-compression structure which shapes and supports by encapsulating the breast rather than using traditional compression
• Lined with Coolmax® fabric to wick moisture away and feel soft against the skin
• Mesh side and front panels for cool, breathable comfort
• Built-up padded straps for extra comfort

Freya Active gets tried and tested...

Freya-Active-Wear-Test

 

Leia fan, Natalie Olley recently completed a cycle challenge across Kenya for the Faraja Cancer Support trust. See how she found trialing the moulded racer Freya Active on her epic journey...

"I wore it on the second day cycling for the first time and it was amazing! The first day I had worn a cheap bra from a high street store and spent the whole day re-adjusting myself. It was not fun or comfortable.

The second day I put on the Freya moulded racer back and it was great. I didn't notice it was there at all. I could cycle all day with no issues of falling out or chaffing - perfect. I then had to hand wash it every evening so that I could wear it on the next day.

Day three was a very long and hard day which consisted of not only a 24km downhill but a 26km uphill trek with some amazing views and some interesting obstacles. In kenya there are some huge speed bumps that most ladies like to slow down for - I however, liked to whiz over them as fast as possible. I quite often left the saddle and the bike left the ground with a bit of bouncing when I returned to peddling back up the next hill. I can honestly say that having the right support was definately an asset.

The trip was by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life and not having to worry about my boobs being supported correctly and comfortably was such a bonus."
