Nike Flyknit Sports Bra? Yes Please

The right sports bra can be the difference between a kickass workout and a brisk walk through the park. So let me share with you Nike’s new offering, which promises to be the sports bra of all sports bras.

So What Makes A Good Sports Bra?

The NikeWomen design team asked around, and the response was unanimous. We want a sports bra that provides total support for any activity. That keeps us cool and dry without sacrificing comfort. And that looks as good as it feels. It is the core of our workout attire and makes a huge difference to how we approach exercise. I know that for me if my maximum support bras are in the wash, I opt for lower impact workouts.

Now, for anyone who has ever worn a pair of Flyknit trainers (Deborah Henning is a huge fan), you’ll know what all the fuss is about. For those who haven’t, why? Flyknit technology holds shape while facilitating precise zones of greater or less support and breathability. The technology enables designers to engineer every stitch for specific performance benefits. The shoes are incredibly comfortable, and your feet don’t get that sweaty. Sounds like the perfect formula for a sports bra if you ask me.  

The Design Process

To determine how to best use the technology, engineers and designers put in more than 600 hours of rigorous biometric testing. Including motion capture and creating atlas maps – a process that involves taking a digital body scan to evaluate areas of high heat, sweat, cooling and movement. Designers reference these maps when deciding what patterns to knit and what materials to use. “The goal of the Nike FE/NOM Flyknit Bra was maximum support and comfort that would allow women to feel and look amazing while doing anything they choose,” explains Nicole Rendone, Senior Bra Innovation Designer. “We prioritised support, breathability and cooling in essential zones.” 

The bra is constructed with an ultra-soft, nylon-spandex yarn, that form fits to your body using two single-layer panels that are assembled for a seamless feel. This Flyknit process also enabled designers to combine encapsulation with compression, offering the best shape, support and comfort without the addition of components like wires, pads, stabilisers and elastics. The Flyknit bra is the lightest high-support bra in the Nike line and is best for C-DD cup sizes and high-impact activities.

The Nike FE/NOM Flyknit bra is available online and in stores now. But I do recommend heading out to a branch and trying it on first. I know it promises to be amazing, and the technology is there, but these are your boobs. And they need your support 😉
