Reebok announces PureMove Bra

Reebok made waves in the sports bra industry today with the unveiling of the Reebok PureMove Bra: a first of its kind, technologically advanced sports bra that uniquely responds and adapts to movement to provide women with a customized amount of control and support, exactly where and when they need it.

For too long, consumer insights have identified frustrated female consumers who feel unsatisfied with their sports bra options, raising flags with alarming stats including one in five women are still avoiding exercise because they don’t have the right sports bra. Determined to change the status quo, Reebok embarked on a journey three years ago with one clear mission: change industry standards for the sports bra and reset the bar.  Now, just over forty years after the first sports bra came to market, Reebok is proud to debut a first of its kind product featuring the brand’s new proprietary Motion Sense Technology.

Reebok’s Motion Sense Technology is the result of treating a performance-based fabric with STF (Sheer Thickening Fluid) – a gel-like solution that takes a liquid form when in a still or slow-moving state and contrastingly stiffens and solidifies when moving at higher velocities.  This fabric technology adapts and responds accordingly to the body’s shape, velocity of breast tissue, and both type and force of movement.  The end result gives wearers a bra that stretches less with high impact movements, while providing the comfort and light support that one would desire during rest and lower intensity activities. To learn more on PureMove’s development click here.

“We could not be prouder to come to market with a product that breaks down barriers in a category that has dissatisfied consumers for far too long, lacking any true technological advancements. Innovation has always been in Reebok’s DNA and placing an emphasis on transforming and improving one of the most important fitness garments for women is no exception,” says Barbara Ebersberger, VP Performance Apparel at Reebok. “The release of PureMove marks the first step of a very exciting new era for us.”

Integral in PureMove’s three-year development process, was Reebok’s work in the lab, testing breast movement and product variations with the University of Delaware.  Here, the two joined forces and upped the ante on industry standards for breast biomechanics that would inform both PureMove’s final design and Reebok’s full sports bra collections for FW18 and beyond.  Until now, industry standards for breast biomechanics testing typically included an average of only two to four motion sensors on the chest area to track bounce and support, but Reebok and the University of Delaware utilized 54 unique motion sensors on this area during its rigorous testing process and used this data to ensure every detail was covered and accounted for in PureMove’s development.

The end result is a second-skin like design that creates a barely-there feel.  Key performance features of the PureMove Bra in addition to the reactive fabric technology include:

  • Breathable Perforations: Perforations in front and back to keep you cool and comfortable, no matter the physical activity.
  • Natural Shaping: Molded front panel and free cut edges for a minimalistic, second-skin fit so you can move freely without distractions.
  • Minimalist Construction: Comprised of only 7 unique pieces of fabric that mold to the body for a seamless fit.

“Many would assume that the more support a sports bra gives would equate to the more fabric, straps or hooks it’s comprised of.  However, by utilizing our Motion Sense Technology, PureMove’s design is quite deliberately the opposite,” says Danielle Witek, Senior Innovation Apparel Designer at Reebok. “The minimalist design of the bra may seem deceiving when you first hold it, but you should not confuse this for lack of support or technology. Every single detail is intentional and directly informed by years of our testing and research.”

At launch, the PureMove Bra will be available in an extended range of 10 unique sizes, aimed to specifically address consumer feedback around the industry’s lack of solutions for those who find themselves in between standard sports bra sizing,  The PureMove Bra debut size range includes: XS, XS/S, S, S/M, M, M/L, L, L/XL, XL, XL/XXL, designed to help ensure a more tailored fit for wearers.

To celebrate one of Reebok’s most anticipated product launches in 2018, the PureMove Bra is brought to life through powerful campaign imagery featuring a team of Reebok’s most formidable female partners including Gal Gadot, Gigi Hadid and Nathalie Emmanuel.

The Reebok PureMove Bra will be available exclusively on Reebok.com starting August 17th for $60. Followed by worldwide-distribution in key retailers starting August 30th.  Additional sports bras from Reebok’s FW18 Hero Bra collection are available today at Reebok.com/HeroBraCollection.

Top Streetwear Trends Worth Investing in

From bold high tops to graphic cartoon tees, it seems like the only attire men want to wear anymore is streetwear. It’s not just a style that defines what models are wearing off-duty or what celebs are wearing off set anymore. Steeped in hip-hop culture, we know mens streetwear as a category of mens clothing online, but it’s also becoming a lifestyle and culture that revolves around men’s fashion.

From sneaker selfies to fresh haircuts, the streetwear influence is spreading like wildfire, especially amongst millennials. The street-style scene has infiltrated so much of today’s pop culture that most stylish menswear brands include streetwear-inspired pieces in their lines. You no longer need to limit yourself to impossible-to-get name brands in order to buy men’s trendy clothing with those authentic urban vibes, like urban styles of mens clothing online at Differio.com.

As much as we catch street style every day, there are certain trends that truly make a unique statement each season. We gathered the top streetwear trends that are worth investing in right now so you know what to ditch and what to score.

  1. 90s-Inspired Pieces

If there’s one era that’s been successfully brought back from the dead, it’s the 90s decade. From colorblock patterns to colorful graphics, men’s streetwear has definitely taken inspiration from some of the brightest and boldest elements of this decade. As for the streetwear looks, it’s never been easier to mix vintage and modern styles than with today’s retro-inspired fashion clothes for men.

Amongst trendy mens clothing online and in stores, brands are bringing back the bubble-jacket look – the kind made popular by so many old school hip-hop artists. The latest puffer-jacket trends are covered in high shine and fashioned with an oversized fit. Street-style aficionados are layering their puffer jackets over ribbed turtlenecks and colorblock sweatshirts.

There are signature details in these pieces that can take you back twenty years ago. You still get the urban-vintage vibe, but it’s tweaked with modern details that are worthy of being sold amongst high fashion clothes for men.

  1. Luxe Athleisure

Athleisure was probably one of the biggest influences that made mens streetwear so highly coveted across men’s fashion. It’s basically another way of rocking athletically sexy clothes for men when you’re not doing leg presses and bicep curls at the gym. Cool and comfortable, the newest streetwear trends you can find amongst mens clothing online takes athleisure to luxury heights.

The luxe-athleisure look is basically workout clothing redesigned to look more fashion forward. You can expect a high influx of cool sneaker boots – a wearable hybrid of high-top fashion sneakers and ankle boots. As for fashion clothes for men, urban hoodies, slim-fit pants, and joggers for men are getting updated with racing side stripes that add an athletic touch.

The beauty of this style of urban clothing for men is that you can easily mix and match these pieces for going out or staying in.

  1. Urban Apocalyptic

Festivals like Burning Man might be influencing the streetwear scene as trendy mens clothing online and in stores are debuting urban apocalyptic looks. While this trend still honors streetwear’s roots in urban culture, it seamlessly combines both styles, so you can rock Mad Max vibes on a casual hoodie or t-shirt.

From oversized puffer coats to worn distressed sweaters, the urban apocalyptic trend is all about making post-apocalyptic style more wearable. Some of the latest trends include tops detailed with that end-of-the-world feel, like ergonomic cargo pockets on cardigans and multiple zipper accents on ripped jeans.

It’s an innovative take on transforming looks that are normally more appropriate for couture and making them comfortable enough for grabbing drinks or running errands.
