One thing we are very passionate about at Triumph, is that the search for a comfortable bra shouldn’t be a difficult one. In fact, we believe it’s a woman’s right to wear comfortable, supportive underwear everyday. And it’s a woman’s right to feel feminine and pretty in her underwear as well. This is the message we will be spreading this summer. Take a few minutes to check out Triumph’s ‘It’s Your Right’ competition winners and the rights that now make up the constitution of the Republic of Triumph.

We also feature a Spring Racing Guide to help you find the perfect piece of lingerie to wear to the track and a Christmas Gift Buying guide for the festive season . Enjoy our chat with Australian Diamonds player, Kim Green as she shares with us her most inspirational moments in netball and her favourite sports bra! We hope to see you soon, either in our stores or online at

Guess what

I’m Pregnant

:: When should I be fitted for a maternity bra? ::

You will probably be ready for a pregnancy bra at around 3-4 months. Visit a brastylist® at a department, speciality lingerie store or Triumph store to be fitted for a style and size recommendation. You will more than likely be fitted into a comfortable, wire-free bra that will see you through pregnancy. Then at around the 7-8 month mark, have another fitting at which time a brastylist® will fit you into a nursing bra.

Is there a typical day for you ?

A Day in the life of a


It depends what stage I am at in the season. At the start of a new season, a typical day is about researching trends, and sketching ideas. But further into the season, a typical day is all about patterns and fittings.

What is your favourite part of the design process ? My favourite part of the design process is researching new trends for the season and putting together the new colour palette.

Michelle C. - Designer, QLD

When do you start working on a new season ? This is quite a lengthy process! It takes around 18 months from initial sketches to seeing product on shelf.


SHAPE YOUR LIFE | October 2012

What will be the emerging trend for the next few seasons ? One of the trends for the next few seasons is colour, and lots of it! We keep seeing gorgeous jewel colours shining through in the trends, and when used with a luxurious fabric, they are hard to resist.

Who inspires you in the field of fashion ? I most admire Wayne Cooper. He has a great sense of style and creativity, and knows how to highlight a woman’s best assets.

triaction® is the official sports bra of the Australian Netball Diamonds. As one of the highest impact sports around, we want to make sure the girls are well supported. We chatted to Diamonds player Kim Green about what inspires her on and off the court. When did you develop your love of netball? “I developed my love from a very early age watching my mother play at the St George Netball Courts. Just seeing the amount of fun mum had with all her friends is where I got my love for the sport. My older sister started playing and I wanted to be just like her so five years later I was playing.” What was your career highlight? “Being involved in the 2010 Commonwealth Games because my mother has also been a part of the Commonwealth Games which is something really special we can share for the rest of our lives. My mum was in India for the 2010 Commonwealth Games to watch which was my proudest moment and probably the first time I realised how cool playing for Australia is. What keeps you motivated to stay on top of your game? My major motivation is that I love doing what I do. If anything becomes forced then you don’t put everything you have into it. Also, the love of keeping fit and socialising with the girls is a big plus. When I’m running up a sand dune, I’m pushing myself to be a part of something special.” What do you love about triaction® sports bras? “triaction® is the only sports bra I wear. The colours are a big thing for us girls, as is the support they provide and how comfortable they are. When you’re wearing it under your dress, you forget it’s even there which is exactly what you want out of a sports bra.” I love the triaction® Seamfree Top. How much training do you do a week? “We normally train every day on tour with the Diamonds, sometimes twice a day. This varies from weights, to sprints, to court work or conditioning. The sessions usually go for an hour and a half to two and a half hours.”
