Magical Uplifting Sports Bra

Marika, a division of Rock Fit – headquartered in California, specializes in fashionable, feminine multi-sport performance active wear. They combine fitness basics, technical fabrications, and function to create athletic wear for women who demand more from their clothing.

Every active woman’s contemporary lifestyle pleads for a good sports bra. I am a strong believer in the right bra for the right sport. I recently tried the Marika Magic Uplift Bra, which is a sports bra that offers breathability and great shape. It is a compression bra – meaning both breasts are in one shelf, that are not held separately. For my D-size, this means I would keep this bra for low impact activities. I wear it primarily for Yoga. The inside has Coolmax lining, to move moisture away from the body and keep you cool and comfortable. It’s almost like a light mesh panel.

The style of the bra is very flattering. It has a deep-V front to show a bit more skin, but this also allows for more bounce which is another reason I keep this bra for low impact activities. It has removable push-up pads and shape enhancing fabric to keep “the girls” up where they belong.

After a sweat-inducing Yoga Sculpt class in this bra, I was still comfortable and most of the wetness collected in the band of the bra or in the Coolmax lining. (You’ll find Coolmax in a lot of active wear. I know I’ve seen it all over Road Runner Sports.) The Magic collection also has tummy controlling tanks and workout pants with hidden features – like tummy control or butt pads!

This bra comes in five colors. I love the celestial blue! It’s available in 3 sizes for $32 on the Markia web site. The straps and back are not adjustable – the band adjusts on the side under your armpit, so check their size chart to be sure you are ordering the right size for you. Then go have fun working up a sweat!
