The Rhythm Bra is a new product on the market that is said to be an ultra supportive sports bra with the addition of a centre pocket for holding an mp3 player, or any small items securely while you work out.
I was lucky enough to have been given one of these new Rhythm Bras to trial over a number of weeks and to see how it performs. I was honestly very keen to give this new product a go as I have always found it quite a challenge to find a sports bra I feel comfortable wearing while training and the potential of the centre pocket peeked my interest. My first impression was very positive. The material seemed to be light and breathable whilst still maintaining structure in the support the bra could give.
I have had a number of sports bras over the years and I always aim to get something that is not only comfortable but also will give me enough support through my workout to ensure that I am able to focus on the task at hand, and not worry about, well… my chest!
Ok now before I get into the review, I just think it’s important to clarify what size of bra I was testing as I think it does have an impact, and also the type of activities I used it for. So my normal bra size is a 34D, and Rhythm Bra has equivalent sizes to standard ones, so my Rhythm Bra size is an X-Large, or the White coloured bra (all sized from small to x-large are colour coded according to
In reviewing this bra I have tried to test in varied environments to give an all round idea of its performance. Firstly low impact core building classes such as Yoga and PowerPlate, and secondly cardio workouts of walking and jogging.
Throughout these low and high impact exercises the bra performance met and exceeded my expectations. It has good manoeuvrability in the firm but not too restricting chest band, and I found the support given in the cup area to be excellent. I was initially conscious that whilst the rhythm bra felt good when I first tried it on, that the comfort level and support system might slip in its quality under the duress of exercise, but I was delighted to find it maintained its quality throughout my work out. I was especially pleased with the consistent support it gave through the higher impact exercises such as jogging.
With regard to the centre pocket, it was an addition I was pleasantly surprised with. I have used it mainly to store a small MP3 player and a single house key, which was of great benefit. Being able to store the items that are essential to carry with me on my workout was a great benefit. I was able to keep all pockets empty and didn’t have to have my house key tied to my wrist, something that I never liked having to do! Overall I felt a lot neater!
On a whole I am very impressed the Rhythm Bra, and would definitely recommend it to any woman looking for a reliable sports bra that will enable them to have a fully supportive workout! The addition of the centre pocket is a great extra but regardless of this the bra itself is definitely the best performing I have ever had.
