Seattle area bra testers needed for Moving Comfort

Our sister company, Moving Comfort, is currently recruiting women who wear size 36DD to come to our biomechanics lab in Bothell for sports bra testing. Here are the details on who they’re looking for at this time:
• Size 36DD
• Aged: 25-40
• 0-1 child birthed
• No augmentation
• Have not breast fed in the past 6 months
• No sports related injuries in the past 6 months that would alter running gait
• No major surgeries in the past 6 months that would alter running gait
• Familiarity with treadmill running and able to run at 8:00 minute/mile pace for approximately 30 seconds

Moving Comfort will be holding the tests during the last week of February/first week of March. Testers will also need to come to our office in Bothell, Washington for a quick 15 minute appointment to confirm that your size is correct for our needs.

The test will include running on a treadmill with reflective markers taped on. You will run in and test approximately 5 different bra styles. The only people in the lab will be women. Actual testing in March will take up to 3 hours to complete.

Testers will receive a free Moving Comfort sports bra and free Brooks shoes for their time.

If you meet all the requirements and live in the greater Seattle area, please email Moving Comfort at fitmodel@movingcomfort.com.

    I fall under some of these. I have 2 kids, my youngest is 2-1/2. I have that size of chest and always have a tough time finding the best bra to wear for running. I’m around a 9.5-10.5 minute mile…

    Not sure if that would push me out of the deal since I’m a slower runner? Would love to be a part of this testing. I use Brooks shoes…love them. I also shop at Road Runner which carries all the moving comfort stuff and love it.

    Let me know!!!! Would love to do it.

    I fall under all these categories, except I am a 36D. I am always having issues finding a suitable running bra. Could you still use me as a tester?

    Jill, it says you need to be able to do 8:00/mile pace only for 30 seconds. If you can run a mile+ at 9:30 pace, you can probably do 8:00/mile pace for only 30 seconds. Just a thought but of course not sure on the other disqualifiers.

    Hi ladies – thanks for the quick interest! But to keep the test scientific, all of the requirements must be met. Moving Comfort and Brooks Sports both do lots of different tests during the year — it’s how we keep improving and refining our products. I’ll post these sorts of requests on the blog whenever I hear of them, so stay tuned.

    Thanks Mel! That’s what happens when I try to multi-talk…with kids in the background. I thought it said 30 minutes! I could do 30 seconds…for sure!

    I fall under all except that I have 2 kids! That must take me out of the running…shoot.

    I am currently a 36D/DD, but I am also currently pregnant. I have continued to run throughout my pregnancy, and would be interested in being a part of your test… Let me know.

    38DD need firm support for running. am a corrections officer and sports bras work so much better for me.. let me know when you begin testing for people with augmentation< we need support too

    hello, i am qualified for all but I’m not in the age group. i have tried many many sports bras and i really want to be able to do the test. does it absolutely have to be that age group?

  • april c thorpe

    I am 40 but have a 42 DD so am I out of the running?

    This is cool! I know someone who fits all of the criteria listed here. I’ll tell her about it. I’m sure she’ll be glad to know that there are new innovations on running apparel that will make the activity more comfortable. Thanks for posting!
