It’s best suited, unsurprisingly, for medium impact workouts, and features an adjustable strap and removable padding. However, the brand suggests sizing down for the best support.

Brighten up your coat rotation with a range of colours too, including autumnal brown, green and lilac – all of which have been heavily discounted.
When do Boxing Day fashion sales start in 2022?
As the name suggests, the Boxing Day sales kicked off on Boxing Day (26 December). Unlike the Black Friday sales, which can start up to a month earlier than the official sale date, most retailers tend to stick to the namesake date when discounting products for the Boxing Day sales.
Historically, the news was full of images of shoppers queuing for hours outside physical stores, but now (particularly after the pandemic) you can just as easily bag a bargain from the comfort of your own home.
How long do Boxing Day fashion sales last?
While the Boxing Day sale officially lasts just for the day, many deals will seep into the January sales – meaning some sales could last the entire month. Just like Black Friday, the IndyBest team will be hands on throughout, to bring you the crème de la crème of sartorial savings.
Are Boxing Day sales better than January sales?
With the two sales being so close to one another, we tend to see similar – if not identical – deals during both events. From fashion to TV, kitchen appliances and beauty, we will see further deals dropping from brands and retailers throughout January.
Why is it called Boxing Day?
While the Boxing Day sales might seem like a relatively new phenomenon, the name dates all the way back to the 1800s, when Queen Victoria held the throne. “Boxing Day” was born out of the tradition of wealthy families boxing up gifts on the day after Christmas. They gave these offerings to maids, housekeepers and other staff to enjoy during their day off with their families. The church also collected similar donations to give to those in need.
