Ultra Marathon Runner Kellie Emmerson reviews the ‘Rebound Racer’
I was lucky enough to discover the Rebound Racer following a professional fit at She Science. It is now my favourite!
It is a bit of a squeeze to get into, but once on is a great fit, and the first bra that I have worn in longer races without nasty chafe under the breasts.
I like the fact that this bra is quite compact, offering a nice shape without unnecessary padding, combining encapsulation and compression, to deliver high impact support. It has a racer back to allow the shoulder blades to move freely, whilst hiding elegantly under my run tops (because no one wants to see your bra straps!).
The Rebound Racer is not only adjustable at the rear, but also has convenient velcro padded straps accessible from the front via hook and loop. This means that it would also be suitable for new mums. The slight padding on the straps also gives me some confidence that my hydration pack won’t rub my collar bones raw after a few hours on the run!
I am generally not one for much colour, so the fact that I can brighten up below the surface is fun. Though colours are more limited in the smaller sizes, there are a wide range of shades available to brighten up your day!
“Thanks for your review Kellie! The rebound is such a perfect bra for your size, shape and activity demands. It’s coming in some new exciting colours soon (in the 8 bands too!).” – Tish, She Science
