Moving Comfort Rebound Racer Review
Moving Comfort’s Rebound Racer is one heck of a sports bra. The Rebound Racer is designed for high intensity exercises, like running, boot camp or even Zumba class. I’ve primarily been wearing the Rebound Racer for road and trail runs, ranging from 1-4 hours. I have found that the Rebound Racer is the most supportive, racer-back design sports bra that I have ever tested or worn.
The Rebound Racer is not a traditional racer-back, it does feature a pull over design, however there is an adjustable keyhole back closure with three hook and eye closure options-to get an even more custom fit. Some may find it hard to pull the Rebound Racer on over the head and reach the posterior adjustments. This wasn’t a big deal for me, but I could see if you did not have some shoulder flexibility it may be hard because the Rebound Racer is so tight fitting. If this is the case for you, perhaps try the Jubralee sports bra. I also tested this bra and it offers similar support with a design that is easier to get on and off thanks to traditional hook and eye closure which can be adjusted in the front prior to moving the closure to the rear, like a regular bra.
Additional customization available in the Rebound Racer is the ability to take the shoulder straps in or out. Each strap features a hook and loop closure, which is concealed on the underside of each strap. I really liked this feature and let the straps out a bit with the first wear and have kept them secured with each subsequent wear. The tail end of the adjusted strap now rests on my clavicles-while I have not had chaffing, I find the landing point a bit annoying at first when wearing a pack. I think this feature is noticeable at first because the straps are pretty rigid and haven’t undergone a ton of washings. I am hopeful that they will loosen and become more comfy with time. These straps go unnoticed without a pack, so this shouldn’t be an issue for many of you.
In terms of cup design, the Rebound Racer features a seam free interior with molded cups that are designed to provide support. Moving Comfort states that these cups also provide shape, however I didn’t really notice the shaping aspect, rather a more flattened silhouette. Honestly, I don’t mind not having a bunch of shape because I am not out to impress while on a run, more out to do my thing and figure that is what most gals want anyways-support first and foremost. The cups are accurately sized and each Rebound Racer is available from size 30B up to 38 DD, making getting the perfect fit much easier than the standard XS to XL.
As for the sizing, the list of available sizes is wonderful. I found that the Rebound Racer was a bit tighter in terms of fit around my ribcage. I ordered a 34 B (and have been measured recently by a professional!) and I had the rear adjustment on the biggest hook and eye because on the others I felt that the lower support band was way to tight. If I were to re-order this bra, I would probably size up a bit. Overall, I liked the racer-back design because the Rebound Racer looks good when worn by itself and fits/hides under my racer-back tank tops. The Jubralee, on the other hand, sticks out of racer-back tank tops due to its’ traditional design. Once again, this is all personal preference and thankfully Moving Comfort has numerous design options to meet your preferences.
The Rebound Racer retails for $50. Some may say that this is way to much for a sports bra and I would have to say that you are definitely getting your moneys’ worth with the Rebound Racer thanks to the many customizations you can make, wide availability of sizing, and superior quality in its’ construction.
