MAAREE Empower Sports Bra with Overband Technology in Navy and is awarded 'Best in Test'

MAAREE Wins 'Best in Test Sports Bra' Award - for the 10th Time!!

Hey there, lovely MAAREE community!

I can hardly believe I'm sitting down to write this blog post. It's with immense pride and gratitude that I share the incredible news: MAAREE has been honoured with our 10th 'Best in Test Sports Bra' award by Women's Running Magazine. However, it's been awarded to a new bra this time, our Empower Sports Bra! With it's recent growing popularity within Team Sports and younger athletes, it's quickly become a fan favourite. We're to glad to see that the independent testing has confirmed its credentials in performance too.

This milestone has us on cloud nine, and I want to take a moment to express how profoundly thankful we are for your unwavering support – because without you, none of this would be possible.

Our Incredible Journey Together

MAAREE's journey started with a simple idea: to create sports bras that empower women in their active lives. From the very beginning, our mission was clear - to provide not just bras, but confidence and comfort. We knew we were onto something special, but we couldn't have imagined the heights we'd reach together.

The Heart Behind Our Success

Behind every award, there's a story, and our story is all about you. It's about the incredible women who believed in MAAREE, supported our brand, and cheered us on from day one. Your trust in us has been the driving force behind our relentless pursuit of excellence.

I started MAAREE after I used to test the performance of sports bras under lab conditions for a living. I tested all the big brands and I actually still couldn't find my perfect one! So I decided to make my own, and the first ones with an Overband®.

Why We Keep Winning

So, what sets MAAREE sports bras apart? It's not just about the technology or design (though we're pretty proud of those too). It's about the heart and soul we pour into each and every bra, knowing it's going to be a part of your active journey. Here's why Women's Running Magazine keeps finding out sports bras the winner:

1. Created for Real Women: We noticed most sports brands only provide 4 or 5 sports bra sizes at best. That's not good enough and helps very few women out there. All 52 sizes of our sports bras are crafted to celebrate those differences and provide the perfect fit for every unique shape and size.

2. Science Before Fashion: With our foundations firmly in the scientific roots and not fashion ones, you can bet we will make sure we deliver and that our bras do what they say on the tin. Nothing will bug me more if it didn't!

3. Overband® Technology: Our sports bras include one crucial element no other sports bra ever has had or ever will have; our Overband®. This curved panel that runs over the top of the chest to reduce upwards motion has revolutionised how we provide support. We're so happy to see it's helping so many of you.

Our Award-Winning Stars

Let's take a closer look at some of our award-winning sports bras:

1. MAAREE Solidarity Bra: Perfect for high-impact activities, this bra offers unmatched support and moisture-wicking comfort. Adjustable straps ensure the ideal fit for your workouts.

2. MAAREE Empower Bra: A fan-favourite for team sports and activities, Empower combines style with comfort. Not to mention our handy phone-sized pocket! It keeps bounce at bay while highlighting your best self.

3. MAAREE Battle Bra: If you want all the support of a high-impact bra, but want to keep the lovely shape for a traditional day bra, the Battle Bra has you covered. Its moulded cups and encapsulated nature keeps your breasts supported individually, emphasising your feminine shape.
