Tween, Mom Agree on Dragonwing
Who says that Moms and tween daughters don't agree when it comes to undergarments, in particular bras and sports bras?! Becky and her daughter were so pleased with the fit and performance of the Dragonwing Mesh Racer sports bra that she wrote an online review, entitled "Good fit, soft material. Go by the Measurements on the Size Chart -- It works!"
She'd been wearing another brand loyally, and since she's grown taller, she needed more length in the straps. For the past several months, she's been embarrassed by the resulting push-up effect and annoyed by the constant ride-up. She's tried on multiple brands and models, even women's xxs sizes for the length, but ran into the same problems everywhere: Too much bra and not enough strap. The sizes that fit her height were clearly made for larger-chested girls. The Dragonwing sports bra offers more length and coverage without excess fabric. It truly seems proportioned for a more athletic but developing girl's body. Also, the material on this bra is soft cotton, and both the band and straps are wider than other bras she's tried. She finds that more comfortable, and I like that wider bands and straps offer better support for developing bodies.We love hearing detailed feedback about our performance athletic wear for girls. We're 100% committed to girls getting the perfect fit and use feedback in our design and development of new products.

4 Tips Every Young Athlete Should Know for Staying Hydrated
After a long, cold winter just about everywhere in the US, what a relief it is to have warmer weather and longer days. Practices and games that occur during the heat of the day can bring the risk of dehydration, especially for young athletes. Staying hydrated can help athletes feel and play their best. The U.S. Soccer Federation uses the acronym GOAL for its recommendations for youth athletes, parents, and coaches. Get acclimated: Young athletes especially need to give their bodies time to adjust to higher, more humid temperatures. Wearing shorts, tops, and sports bras made of moisture-wicking fabric (not cotton) helps your body cool itself. On-schedule drinking: Don’t wait until you feel thirsty. Increase how much you drink throughout the day, every day. Develop the habit of drinking a glass of water before you go to bed or when you get up in the morning. And be sure to drink before practice or a game, too. Always bring a drink to practices and games. Stay away from caffeinated, so-called “energy” drinks that can cause health problems, especially in young people. To replace electrolytes after you finish playing, try chocolate milk, V-8 juice, or 100% fruit juice, which contains more carbohydrates, potassium, and nutrients than a sports drink Learn the signs of dehydration: dizziness, nausea, chills, and unusual fatigue. If you experience any of these, stop playing, move to a cooler location, drink fluids, and – most importantly – notify a coach, parent, or other adult. What you wear can help keep you cool, too. Dragonwing girlgear is made from fabric that wicks moisture so your body stays cooler. Check out our new Mesh Racer Sports Bra and Un-Dee Light Compression Shorts.
