A bra that is bounce cer­ti­fied?

Yup, that’s what Tri­umph’s Tri­ac­tion range of sports bras is all about. They keep those boobs firmly in place.

No more jig­gling and bounc­ing dur­ing work­outs as the in­no­va­tive wide-strapped, style-driven, quickdry col­lec­tion gives women the free­dom to train in mul­ti­ple sports, with vary­ing in­ten­sity.

These bras are de­signed to move with your body so it doesn’t mat­ter what size or shape you are.

Col­lab­o­rat­ing with Jump­ing Fit­ness Malaysia, the Ger­man lin­gerie brand re­cently held a tram­po­line class for the me­dia to check out its Au­tumn/Win­ter 2017 col­lec­tion. It fea­tures the Stu­dio and Car­dio range, with a style to suit ev­ery body.

The bounce con­trol is a sci­en­tific mea­sure that gives the per­cent­age of breast move­ment re­duc­tion when ex­er­cis­ing. It mea­sures breast move­ment in all di­rec­tions: (for­ward/back­ward, side/side and up/down) and gives an over­all breast move­ment re­duc­tion in per­cent­age.

Be­ing a phys­i­cally ac­tive owner of small cups, I use sports bras daily – some­times even two when my ac­tiv­i­ties are in the morn­ing and evening, and the first one is still wet from the sweat.

Look­ing at my size, I was rec­om­mended the Free Mo­tion WHU push-up bra, which of­fers 65% bounce con­trol. Fea­tur­ing a rocker wire, a spe­cial con­struc­tion to pre­vent the wires from dig­ging in, brushed straps and un­der­bust band, it def­i­nitely en­hanced my curves.

The bra does give the smaller-en­dowed women a nice cleav­age and a lift, which can boost your con­fi­dence. If you choose, go ahead and flaunt it with­out a top when you sweat. It is also equally com­fort­able as a work bra, so you don’t have to cart an ex­tra pair of sports bra to the gym as it can be worn all day.

Part of the Stu­dio col­lec­tion, this style is pre­ferred for women en­gag­ing in low in­ten­sity, ton­ing ac­tiv­i­ties such as yoga or Pi­lates, but it worked fine with the tram­po­line ac­tiv­ity.

Not only did it give me am­ple sup­port de­spite all the in­tense jump­ing and twist­ing, I hardly felt any move­ment or damp­ness in­side though we were sweat­ing buck­ets.

A few days later, I tried it on a mod­er­ate hike and again, it left me dry and com­fort­able.

How­ever, if you are large breasted, you might want to try out the bra, and jump up and down on the spot first to make sure the breasts are fully se­cured in­side the cups.

In­struc­tors from Jump­ing Fit­ness Malaysia lead­ing the me­dia on a tram­po­line class to test Tri­ac­tion’s bounce ef­fect.

The Free Mo­tion WHP wired bra is a su­per light and fash­ion­able style that of­fers ul­ti­mate com­fort and good sup­port.

The Tri­ac­tion Con­trol Lite sports bra re­duces bust pro­jec­tion by one cup size and of­fers 78% over­all bounce con­trol.

The Free Mo­tion WHU push-up bra gives the bust an ex­tra lift whilst of­fer­ing a 65% cer­ti­fied bounce con­trol. — Pho­tos: Tri­umph
