After years of design, development and testing - it's finally here: the Ridge Merino Send-It Seamless Sports Bra.
Outside Magazine calls it, "... one of the most comfortable sports bras we've ever encountered," in their 2023 Buyer's Guide, Best Women's Workout Gear round-up.
What took so long?
The desire to build a better sports bra has always been a top priority, but it took some time to get it just right. It had to be supportive, it needed to stay in place, it needed to be breathable (a Merino speciality) and, most importantly, it had to be comfortable. We worked closely with our athletes to nail the fit; we experimented with different natural and recycled fabrics; explored new, innovative knitting techniques; and adjusted the level of compression along the way. When we finally landed on a design, we began testing, and testing... and testing some more. To say we put this product through its paces might be the understatement of the last four years.
What makes it so special?
We started with soft, sustainable Merino wool and added recycled nylon + spandex for increased durability and just the right amount of support. The natural Merino fibers next to skin provide breathable, sweat-wicking, all-day comfort. No seams mean no rubbing or chafing, and the racerback cut stays put while allowing total freedom of movement. It's also super quick to dry and doesn't smell, even after many days of wear. (= Less laundry!)
"And man, is this bra sweat-wicking; one of our testers wore it long after a workout (more than once) and it dried so quickly she forgot she hadn’t changed—it felt like a fresh bra again. Another huge pro: It doesn’t get stinky like many synthetic sports bras do, so you can wear it more times before washing." - Outside Magazine
