FAQs


 

What do people put in the pocket?

Whatever items are a priority for you when you are out there exploring. The most common items we see brought along are ID, keys, credit card, smart phone, and chapstick. We have some golfers who use it to carry their tees, some runners who use it for their goo packs....the options are endless!

 

What size am I?

We want to ensure we give you as much transparency into sizing as possible. As such, we provide a sizing guide on the ZIP TO RUN product page for your reference.

 

Why a horizontal, front zipper pocket?

Some alternatives to HUMMINGBYRD offer pockets on the back of the bra, making it more difficult to access and prohibits zipper use. Others boast a front vertical pocket, which doesn't afford enough space for your items to be fully enclosed and secure. Leggings with pockets on the side create an unequal distribution of weight. Lastly, some retailers offer either tops or bottoms with tiny key pockets that are not large enough to hold phones to afford a hands-free adventure. 

HUMMINGBYRD has reimagined the use case for sports bras while on the go - designing features that offer security, comfort, and item accessibility via the invisible horizontal zipper pocket on the front of the bra  - thereby alleviating the mental and physical hindrances that prevent women from performing their best.

 

Should I be concerned about EMF radiation?

First, we want to note that we welcome and respect everyone’s opinions. We want to assure you that we have designed these bras with the safety of our customer at the forefront of our mind, constantly checking the science behind the potential linkage (and in this case absence thereof) between smartphone radiation and cancer. While a large number of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk, to date, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use

For further context, “on the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, which also includes visible light, cell phone radiation falls between FM radio waves and microwaves. These low-frequency forms of energy are referred to as nonionizing radiation because they are not strong enough to knock atoms off molecules, [thereby causing direct damage to DNA]. This is in contrast to ionizing radiation, such as X-rays and gamma rays."

You may stash whatever makes you feel most comfortable in your pocket, whether that includes a phone or not!
