Moving Comfort Jubralee + giveaway!

I love this bra and photo of my 4 year old and I that was a random catch when I was just trying to get a photo for this post.

So I already wrote a bra review on the Moving Comfort Juno bra, but they have another great bra I have been using and she deserves attention too.  So here it is.  The Moving Comfort Jubralee is a soft, smooth, pretty bra that supports great and is easy to put on.

From the company:
Jubralee
combines the best features from Moving Comfort’s top selling styles to create a state-of-the-art, high impact bra featuring hidden side and under bust support, front adjustable straps and, subtle-contour cups. 
Jubralee utilizes a unique combination of encapsulation, compression, and elevation to deliver unmatched support and comfort in a flattering, streamlined, and sporty design.
Consider this:· In one hour of aerobic exercise, an unsupported 34D breast moves about 1,000 vertical feet. Jubralee reduces vertical motion by roughly 450 feet, the height of a 45-story building.
Source: Moving Comfort Biomechanics Testing Research, 2011
The acceleration (how quickly the breast stops and starts) of an unsupported 34D breast is approximately 2.9g. Compare this to airplane take off and landing accelerations ranging from 1.7 to 2.1g. Moving Comfort’s Jubralee cuts breast acceleration in half, minimizing pain during exercise. Source: Moving Comfort Biomechanics Testing Research, 2011

The fabric is really soft.  A thin and smooth outer layer and a cool mesh on the inside.  Not a bad, too loose mesh, it's sewn really well, but just a mesh that breathes and fits well.  The actual inside of the cup is another very smooth and soft fabric and the mesh is above and between the cups.
It has a great firm band which is so important in sports bra support, and buckles in the back like a normal bra making it easy to put on.  I used their great fitting room part of the site (which I highly recommend using) and went with the 32 band they suggested and while I worried it was too small, I appreciate how firm it is now.  Cup wise I think the Jubralee might run just a tad smaller than my Juno.  I have a D in both, but I feel like the Juno is a little bit bigger.  I don't think the size discrepancy is enough to go up or down a cup from what I have, just something to keep in mind if you're in between sizes, I suggest going with the bigger cup size in the Jubralee.  D sounds big to me even though I am nursing, but that's what the fitting room said and that's what fits.
The Jubralee has the same style straps that thread through the bra and have smooth not scratchy velcro in the front making the bra easy to adjust and another nursing friendly bra!  The fabric of this bra like I said is smooth and thinner than the Juno so it doesn't thread through as easy when I undo it to nurse, but for most women who aren't nursing with it, that isn't a concern.  The velcro doesn't seem quite as strong as the Juno's and has come undone a few times when I didn't want it to, but ironically not when I'm running, but mostly right after I fasten it again and get up to move around.  So one shouldn't worry too much about the velcro coming undone, it was just something I noticed.

The support in the bra is just as good as the Juno, high impact (and I am a C-D cup right now so I do have something to support).  Something I wear to run and teach my water aerobics classes that involves jumping and plyometrics and such.  Moving Comfort does actual bio-mechanical testing with this bra.  I remember seeing them debuting the testing and the bra at summer Outdoor Retailer show last summer (they're actually kiddie corner to our Altra booth).  So the Jubralee keeps me from bouncing, but still looks very attractive.  I'm vain sometimes, but we'll just call it building my confidence beacuse I like the way I look ;)  If I ever choose to run in just a sports bra and shorts, THIS is the bra!  It's just so pretty.  They have several other awesome color choices I love too.  This company run by women really does a great job aesthetically as well as functionally of course.

I don't have any complaints with this bra.  Haven't had any chafing or rubbing, and the velcro has only slipped a few times, but not when I was actually running.  I'll take it for the ease of nursing and adjustment access it gives me.  The bra breathes great and has good shape.  The traditional style straps don't bother my shoulders in back at all like I wondered if they would since it's not racerback style.  I find the Jubralee being my go to bra lately because it's so easy to put on and supports great!  Definately check it out.  Moving comfort is priced similar to other high quality brands and is totally worth the money.  I tell you ladies, you spend the $50 (they have some colors for $32 right now too - that's a deal!) on a bra like this and it will not only support you way better than your $15 Target bra, but it will be more comfortable because it breathes better and will surely last longer.  I've given my Moving Comfort bras a beating this last 6 months running, biking, racing, and teaching in them all week and undoing and pulling them up and down all the time to nurse and they're holdilng up great!  Like any other important piece of equiptment like running shoes, you really need to pay for quality.  This bra and any Moving Comfort bra really (I have 3) are worth the money, worth the money, worth the money.  I am not sponsored or paid at all by Moving Comfort, just a happy customer.  Check em out!

Or how about winning one?!  Leave me a comment telling me which Moving Comfort bra you think you'd like the best (or which you already like the best if you have one) and I'll enter you in once to win a Jubralee!  You can have a second entry if you like their Facebook page and mention my blog on their wall, and then let me know you did here in a comment.  I'll draw a random winner on Saturday September 15th, so enter by 11:59pm Friday September 14th. Good luck!

After nursing my 3rd baby, I've been wearing 2 sports bras at the same time to train in to minimize bounce. I would love to win a bra to wear for my 1st Sprint tri next month. I Love the turquoise color and the Juno looks super comfy.

I just got a Fiona earlier this summer and I can't BELIEVE I don't have to wear two sports bras anymore!! Of course, it's getting so much attention & wash, I desperately need another one!!

I would love to win a Juno! The purple is so pretty!!

I am currently nursing my second baby, and discovered the Juno bras when nursing my first. For someone who always bought the cheap Target bras, the Juno seemed like a huge splurge, but it was totally worth it! I now have three that get used and abused often. I have even worn them in tris, and cannot say enought good things about these bras. Comfortable, easy to nurse in, cute, awesome support...I'd love another!

Reb said...

Thanks for hosting a giveaway! If I could pick any bra it would be the urban x-over. It's awesome, it looks nice and goes on and off without a wrestling match.

Reb said...

I just left you some facebook love on their facebook page! Have a good one!

Bethany said...

I want one! I think
I like Juno.

Kelli said...

I also just posted a comment and like them on their facebook page. :-)

Kelli said...

I thought I left a comment but now I can't see it. I actually want the jubralee- I went on their site and searched by cup size and impact level and it came right up!

Nurse Heidi said...

Juno, methinks! Purple or Blizzard. I'm a cheapo Target bra girl, so it'd be a real luxury to have one that fits well.

Megan said...

I got a Fiona recently and I love it. So comfy and supportive!

Jennifer said...

I think either the Juno or Jubralee would be great!

Zoe said...

I have 2 of the Jubralee and love them. We've got to take care of our girls. ;-)

I think I would like the Jubralee as well.

I think I would like the Fiona or the Jubralee. I like the straight-strap backs as opposed to the racer-back straps for something different.

I want a jubralee... And with it I'd like some perky boobs and rock hard abs!

Abbey{RUNS} said...

I liked them on Facebook and gave you a little love. I hope your going to help save my ta-tas!

Megan Moench said...

Juno for me! :D cute!!

Megan Moench said...

I also liked the Facebook page!! :D Wahoo two entries for me :)

Unknown said...

My one and only is one I got after a Nurse Heidi bbc recommendation while nursing my last little one. Alas, the nursing abundance is no more, and I can no longer wear that one. I would love a free replacement, however. :)
