Reebok PureMove Bra Reviewed
Nearly 1 out of every 5 women say that they don’t work out because they can’t find a sports bra that fits their boobs.
This is a sad reality - and one that Reebok sought to change. Its discovery inspired the brand to develop the PureMove. This award-winning bra isn’t like the others - and we’re not just saying that because we have to. Here, Reebok uses the same material used in bulletproof vests and NASA space suits to provide legit, lightweight, and responsive support with zero BS.
TIME, Popular Science, and more have recognized the Reebok PureMove bra. In addition to its cool innovative design, it's also breathable, affordable, and inclusive of nearly all sizes. It has a few minor downfalls, but on the whole, it's definitely a valuable purchase. Read on to learn more about the cool details of this revolutionary garment.

Motion Sense Technology
STF - which stands for Shear-Thickening Fluid - is a substance that is liquid at low velocity but solid at high intensity. Like we said earlier, we use STP in bulletproof vests and NASA space suits. In the PureMove bra, it naturally stiffens and becomes less stretchy when you’re working out, thereby holding all the jiggle in; but softens again when you’re not exercising so that you stay comfortable without feeling like you’re suffocating. Its responsiveness ensures that you get the comfort and support you need, when you need it.
This renders it a lot lighter, thinner, and less bulky. It makes sense - you’ve got enough weight of your own to carry during your workout, anyhow! One reviewer has stated that the cups feel a bit thicker than usual, but it’s not a common complaint and it doesn’t really undermine the advantages of the thinness and lighter weight.
As a result, you stay as nice and fresh as is possible during an intense training session. This feature is especially beneficial during the hot summer months.
One of the benefits of the racerback design is that it's cross shape provides support to the breasts in a different angle, which is great for full-figured women. In addition, it disperses weight across the entire back rather than putting pressure on just the shoulders or upper back, preventing aches and discomfort.
Lastly, it doesn’t cover the shoulder blades, giving you a full range of unrestricted movement. The downside of the straps in the Reebok PureMove bra is that they are not adjustable, and one reviewer claimed they were too long. This could undermine the support that you’re supposed to get.
The minimalist design of the Reebok PureMove bra gives it a sleek and simple look. The molded front panel gives the effect of natural shaping, and the perforations are strategically placed to provide effective ventilation while adding to the style. The downside is that the front is quite high up on the chest, so it’s not suitable for wearing with t-shirts unless they’re crewneck and cover it completely.
In all honesty, we don’t recommend that you buy bras online because you can’t try it out and see if the size is ideal. There are, however, sizing charts on the brand’s site that you should use as a reference. The Reebok PureMove bra is inclusive - it offers ten different sizes ranging from XS to XXL, covering women’s sizes 0 to 22. Regardless of if you’re A or D cup, there’s an option for you.
However, note that THIS BRA RUNS SMALL IN SIZE. Many reviewers have expressed this and recommend other customers to order at least one size up. This inaccuracy in sizing is quite inconvenient, but when online shopping it’s just one of the obstacles that are unavoidable.
The wide range of sizes makes it suitable for breasts of all sizes. When it comes to style, though, it’s not too versatile. The racerback and high cut mean that you can’t wear it with a lot of t-shirts. If you wear regular tank tops, the racerback will also be in full display.
Most reviewers say they experienced this. However, a minority said the material failed to stiffen during exercise or was too restrictive during rest. There were pleasant reactions to the lack of chafing (thanks to the seamless design), but some reported that it had a rubbery texture.
Like we just mentioned, it is versatile and you can wear it for both high- and low-impact workouts. In a way, this one bra thus plays the role of many, making sure you get your money’s worth.
Other benefits include its light weight, breathable fabric and perforations, size variety, and reasonable price. There are some downsides, such as the fact that the straps aren’t adjustable, that the high cut in the front makes it less versatile in terms of style, and that it runs small in size. However, countless customers have had nothing but positive feedback about it, so the likelihood of you running into issues is very slim.
We recommend the Reebok PureMove bra to all women who have accepted bra issues as an inevitable part of fitness. With its new innovation, Reebok is now showing us what proper support and comfort is supposed to be like.
