Boys, avert your eyes

In homage to the recent whopping two pages that Rock and Ice decided to devote to rock climber girls — a sports bra review — here’s my two cents. Moving Comfort really is the bomb. Does anyone say “the bomb” anymore? Oh well.

I learned during our Jtree trip last year that winter climbing means you’d better be awfully comfortable in your closest-to-the-skin layer, because it may not actually change for days at a time. Since then, I’ve been on a quest for the perfect multi-day support top. I visited my favorite sporty unmentionables website, Title Nine, and my favorite discount outdoor apparel source and tried two different Moving Comfort tops. One goes by the name “3 Reasons” at Title Nine. To really put the 3 Reasons through its paces, I wore it for three days, during rock gym sessions, running and weightlifting as well as overnight and for everyday wear. Result? Here are my three reason for wanting to pick up a crate of this particular top:

  1. Fit. Most support tops come in S/M/L which doesn’t work for some of us more … unique … shapes and sizes. This is the first support top I’ve found that actually does its job because it actually fits properly. It’s also highly adjustable, a novel feature for a support top.
  2. No bounce. ‘Nuff said.
  3. Comfort. Even overnight, this one passes the comfort test. No rash, no digging in, no discomfort whatsoever.

Plus, it’s just plain cute and comes in colors other than white. Bonus!

The other one was a closeout and I don’t know the model name. It, too, came in a wide size range, and it, too, is super comfortable and feels overnight-worthy (although I haven’t put it to that test yet). I was kind of bummed when Rock and Ice decided to devote the token “girls article” to sports bras, but I have to admit that I appreciate learning about this brand.
