Share Article

Lingerie group Wacoal Eveden have launched a new netball team at their Northamptonshire factory. The site is the home of best-selling sports underwear brand Freya Active and they announced the creation of their new sports team with a special training session coached by England Netball Ambassador Sasha Corbin.

To kick start their training, the Wacoal Eveden team enlisted the help of professional player and England Netball Ambassador Sasha Corbin.

Freya Active are part of the Freya brand, who offer fashionable and perfectly fitting lingerie, swimwear and sports bras. Recognising netball as the largest growing all-female participant sport in the UK, Freya Active has been working with England Netball since 2012.

However, the brand’s association with the sport goes back much further. The Desborough-based lingerie factory first had its own netball team in 1935 - ‘The Desbeau Netballers’. 78 years on, Freya Active is the official sports bra supplier to the England Netball Team and Eveden Wacoal have created a new team partly to demonstrate the capabilities of their sports bras.

To kick start their training, the Wacoal Eveden team enlisted the help of professional player and England Netball Ambassador Sasha Corbin. To date, Sasha has earned 19 international caps and is set to be part of team competing at the Glasgow Commonwealth games in July 2014. The Wacoal Eveden team are hoping to learn from Sasha’s speed of passing and variety of feeds into her shooters, which have become her trademark.

Ultimately, the Wacoal Eveden team aim to compete in league competitions – as well as helping to promote the importance of a correctly-fitting sports bra.

Wacoal Eveden claim that 80% of UK women are wearing the wrong size bra, and urge all women to visit their local lingerie department or independent boutique for a professional fitting around every six months.

When it comes to choosing a sports bra, the brand suggest that opting for a non-compression design will separate and support the bust, just like a normal bra. Thus helping to reduce movement and look after the natural shape of the breast.

Wacoal Eveden also advise that not receiving the correct support during exercise can lead to damage of the Cooper’s Ligament and cause irreversible sagging.
