About

Get your hands on the first sports bras in the world with Overband® Technology. Supporting and reducing upward motion like no other sports bra has ever done before. Look as strong as you feel in MAAREE’s female warrior inspired athletic apparel.

The Overband® is a curved panel that’s incorporated into all of MAAREE’s sports bras in our first collection. It runs over the top of the breasts to provide extra support and reduce upward motion when exercising. It is specially designed to distribute the pressure across the breasts whilst offering a pleasing silhouette which means no unwanted lumps or bumps appearing where they shouldn’t.

There's only so much compression and lifting we can handle before feeling suffocated. It's time to defy convention and tackling the problem in a different way to everyone else. As the old saying goes; what goes up, must come down!

We are about 360 degree support.

This technology is sewn into the front of the bra and also into the underband on your back. Fastening the clasp will apply the tension not only from the underband but also from the Overband®. This means the band will not be moving around independently of you or the bra when you are active.

My name is Mari Thomas and I am the founder of MAAREE.

I’ve been interested in sports since a young age with it soon becoming apparent how important a role it played in my life, not only providing a healthy lifestyle but also forging friendships, building confidence and developing life skills. So many women out there don’t feel they have the right tools or mindset to achieve their activity goals and potential. I am on a mission to help women feel empowered.

I have a Sports Technology degree from Loughborough University and I’ve helped many brands test and develop their sports bras but I still felt like the ultimate sports bra, for me, still wasn’t out there. After much contemplation and leaving a sports wearable brand in London I decided to make my own and now I’m ready to share my solution with every woman out there. I’m so excited to bring you my first collection!

Thanks to some late nights and a some help from some of my very talented friends the MAAREE journey has finally come together. I'm so excited to see it finally come to life!

Risks and challenges

We're ready to start manufacturing and delivering quality rewards. We've already completed the prototypes and have reliable manufacturing partners.

Our team has a wealth of experience in manufacturing high-quality athletic apparel and hence we have already assessed all likely risks and introduced safeguards to mitigate them. Should any unexpected issues arise we will openly share them with you and advise on our plan of action.

All rewards will be shipped directly from the factory in Sri Lanka, to help us to get the product to the customers as quick as possible. Please see the FAQ section for more details.
