HOW IS THE MAXIMUM LEVEL OF SUPPORT OF THE SPORTANCE RUNNING BRA (LEVEL 5 ON A SCALE FROM 1 TO 5) GUARANTEED?
All our products are passed by our bust support test (measurement of the decrease in breast bounce when running) conducted in our laboratories. They are evaluated and given a rating from 1 (low support) to 5 (high support).
Like all the KALENJI models, this sports bra was given a level 5 rating and is suitable for all HIGH IMPACT sports.
* This sports bra reduces bounce by 37% compared with a conventional bra when practising HIGH IMPACT sports.
WHAT TYPE OF CUPS DOES THE SPORTANCE RUNNING BRA HAVE?
The Sportance sports bra has 2 flexible single-thickness cups (no shell). The cup material, which is durable and fine, allows the bra to dry quickly.
We also offer sports crop tops and bras with breathable moulded cups.
HOW WAS THIS SPORTANCE BRA DESIGNED?
We designed a sports bra for optimum comfort and breast protection:
Like all the KALENJI models:
* we do not use underwiring (risk of injury or of compressing the glands)
* we keep the number of seams around the nipples to a minimum (risk of irritation)
* we use components that wick away perspiration (this criterion improves comfort while also considerably diminishing the risk of irritation).
STRAIGHT OR CROSSED STRAPS?
The straps of the Sportance running bra may be worn vertically, like a conventional bra. They may also be attached in the middle of the back, using a hook which connects the two rings. This frees up the shoulders and gives greater freedom of movement.
We read your reviews of the previous version of this product and improved the hook: once attached, it will remain in place thanks to the safety catch.
WHAT IF IT IS TOO TIGHT ACROSS THE BACK?
If the cups fit but the chest strap is too tight, you can extend its length using the KALENJI BACK EXTENDER that is available in the following compatible heights:
38 mm: is compatible with sizes: 85D, 85B, 90B, 95B, 90A, 95A, 85C and 90C.
57 mm: is compatible with sizes: 95E, 100E, 90D, 95D, 100D, 100B, 95C and 100C.
TESTS AND WARRANTY
SUPPORT: the support was tested and approved by testers in the DECATHLON laboratory by measuring the movements of the breasts. Each size was tested separately.
PERSPIRATION WICKING: the perspiration wicking test was conducted on each material, in the laboratory, to check that the fabric absorbs and transfers moisture from the inside of the fabric outwards and eliminates it.
WASHING: The washing and drying tests guarantee good stability (dimensional stability and colour fastness)
This sports bra was tested and approved by 10 runners during an outdoor running session. The runners then conducted a long-term test, over a period of 6 months, to experience the product.
This sports bra has also been tested and validated by our horse-riding teams to ensure optimal breast support while you ride.
