Sparkly Tights: A Women's Running Podcast

A dash of inspiration and motivation for textile-based product start-ups. Demi from Get Stuff Made shares the stories of small independent brands, talking to founders about their journeys so far.

Demi kicks off the Sparkly Tights podcast listening to the story of Mari, founder of sports bra brand MAAREE. We chat to Mari about how she started her business using a sewing machine and belts. We are both old friends, having met previously during an internship in London, so it was also a lovely time for a catch up and see what's changed since those days.

Well Far: The Running Podcast

Whether you are just starting out, or here to PB, Well Far is the weekly running podcast helping you to go the distance. Each week host Amy Lane - author, runner and fitness expert - breaks down the barriers to running to make it accessible for joggers, plodders, runners and racers. 

In Season 3 Episode 4, Amy talks to Mari Thomas, founder of MAAREE whose background in sports bra testing led to the founding of her (almost) eponymous women's sportswear brand - MAAREE. Over the course of the episode we learn of why ditching the ill fitting sports bras is essential, different supports for different sports and how to find the right fit and how introducing good support being introduced at a younger age in schools could help close the gender play gap.
