Eddie Bauer Movement Bra ReviewJune 11, 2018
- Best fit & mobility
- Great balance of support & comfort
- Breathable material that does not chafe
- Basic sporty style design
- Color & print options are basic
The Eddie Bauer Movement Bra stood out in comfort. The overall score of this bra is based in its comfort from the fit and material construction to the flexibility. Testers reported that it was the first bra they wanted to put on to go out for a run in, but it also stood the test of time and was a good choice for post-run brunch, gym workouts or just wearing around with jeans and a t-shirt. The material was soft and did not deteriorate after three months of wear testing and washing.
Fit / Mobility
The Eddie Bauer Movement Bra also stood out in it’s fit and mobility for high impact sports like fast running, trail running, as well as easy recovery runs. Testers reported a good snug fit that still stood the test of comfort. The bra is slightly tight around rib cage, however. Another perk of the fit is was flexible enough to be easy to get on and off. The bra did not chafe.
The Eddie Bauer Movement Bra is designed for low to medium impact sports for women with cup sizes up to C. Our team of A/B cup testers found this bra to be very supportive for running without being too constricting. “The support was just enough without being too much,” one tester said.
The proprietary FreeDry moisture wicking fabric of the Eddie Bauer Movement Bra worked well for our testers in a variety of weather conditions. The bra stayed dry in cold and wet weather as well as on warm and humid runs. The fabric is fairly thick and was on the on the warmer side of the bras we tested, however it is still moisture wicking.
Style / Design
The style seemed to be less important to testers with The Eddie Bauer Movement Bra since it stood out in technical design in comfort, support, fit and breathability. The Movement bra has a basic sporty design and does not stand out for style. The testers mostly liked the padding option as it was not intrusive. The bra is fully lined with removable cups. The bra comes in basic colors and prints, though is constantly updated year after year.
