If you think Under Armour Sports & Activewear is just for pro ball players and maybe the high school lacrosse team, think again. Women have now become wearers of Under Armour products too. Yes, it is the official outfitter for many college football teams, as well as for some professional soccer and rugby teams, but Under Armour's revolutionary moisture wicking fabric is just as suitable to the weekend (or once-in-awhile) athlete. Originally created to be worn under athletic uniforms and pads, Under Armour now makes compression shorts and sports bras, hoodies, t-shirts, sweatpants and more.
Under Armour women's lines are not just copies of the men's line, but are constructed to be high-performing and comfortable on a woman's body. Under Armour bras and women's performance underwear stay in place while keeping you cool and dry. There is no binding or bunching. Their high-tech fabrics for both heat and cold-weather keep you comfortable and dry no matter the level of your work-out or play.
The 2" Compression shorts offer minimal coverage and maximum performance. The lightweight power stretch fabric compresses while still allowing for total mobility. The flat lock seams reduce abrasion for lasting comfort.
Some of Under Armour's sports bras are unusual in that they are constructed with individual cups for maximum support. The patented Under Armour HeatGear construction accelerates moisture wicking while the micro mesh inserts speed ventilation. Under Armour Core 2 Sports Bra has a sweetheart neckline, perfect for wearing under clothing or alone. The racerback style holds straps in place even through moderately intense workouts. Like other Under Armour bras, this style also has breathable mesh inserts.
Founded in 1996 by a former University of Maryland football player, Under Armour began with a plan to design a t-shirt that would wick away moisture and provide compression. From there the line expanded to its unique offerings of microfiber gear, designed to regulate temperature and enhance performance. And so, the performance product industry was born.
Under Armour fabrics are the result of innovative research and design. They are constantly engineering textile innovations and introducing new technologies to improve their products. Their mission: to make all athletes better through passion, science and the relentless pursuit of innovation.
Under Armour also gives its time, energy and spirit through a variety of organizations that focus on improving the well-being of children, environmental initiatives, and finding a cure for breast cancer. Sponsorships include Ronald McDonald House, the Conservation Fund, the Living Classrooms Foundation, and Power in Pink, which raises funds for breast cancer research, among others.
