MOVEMAMÍ, MOVE! Breastfeeding Sports Bra Review

As the weather is warming up, I’ve found myself more motivated than usual to get moving.  So I was very excited when Abby from The Mum Life offered to send me a MOVEMAMÍ “Shine” breastfeeding sports bra/crop top, designed for high impact exercise, like running.

Postage was super quick, and I had the bra only 3 business days after it was shipped (I live in a regional area, so I usually expect to wait longer than that!).  I tried it on straight away and was very happy to find that the XL seemed to fit my 14F chest perfectly.  Over the next few weeks, I gave the bra a thorough testing.  I found some things that I loved about it.

Shipping was fast!

STUFF I LOVED

  • It’s a very nice looking bra.  I can totally see women working out in this bra with no shirt over the top if they were jogging, working out in the gym or if it was simply a hot day.
  • The nylon and spandex combination make it feel very soft and luxurious.  Although it feels like a good, firm fit, it doesn’t leave imprints on my skin.
  • I feel no pressure or pinching around my breasts, so I’m confident it won’t interfere with my milk ducts, or cause any blockages.
  • The nursing clips are easy to undo with one hand, and is designed in a way that allows the bra to come down enough so that Miss 2 can breastfeed without a bra cup getting in her face.  I have found some breastfeeding sports bras have moulded cups that you can’t quite seem to get out of the way enough.
  • It’s comfortable enough for everyday wear, which makes it perfect for incidental exercise.  Sometimes we have an impromptu visit to the park and it would be perfect for me to do a quick workout, but I just know that my everyday Kmart crop isn’t going to cut it.
Awesome boob access for feeds

I gave the bra a thorough test with bike riding, walking, jogging, pushups, handstands, burpees and a long list of other awful exercises.  I have no problem recommending the MOVEMAMÍ “Shine” for low to medium impact exercises.  When I tested it out running and skipping, I was a little disappointed.  I felt the bra restricted boob movement in a downward direction, but not up, if that makes sense?  I feel like it cut out a lot of the bounce, but not as much as other breastfeeding sports bras I have tested in the past.

However when I shared a video with my followers demonstrating the bounce in my breasts while skipping, THEY were impressed.  Maybe my video doesn’t adequately reflect the bounce that I felt, or maybe I have higher expectations when it comes to boob support than other mums.  Or maybe I’m too picky.  I’ll let you watch my video and decide for yourself.  I am happy the range caters to my size, because a 14F bras aren’t something that are easy to come by.

To maximise your chances for an optimal fit, I would encourage you to talk to a salesperson.  If I went by the sizing information that I found on the website, as a 14F I might have ended up with the XXL (to fit 16-18, E-F) instead of the XL (14-16, DD-E).

Thanks Abby for sending me my MOVEMAMÍ bra in exchange for my honest review.

  1. […] other breastfeeding sports bras I have tried (like Cadenshae Ultimate and Movemami Shine), Activate is a proper cupped bra, not a crop top.  As highlighted above, you should get properly […]
