(Sung to the tune of “Beans, Beans, the Magical Fruit)
Bras, bras, they hold the girls tight
The more you wear one, the more you feel right
The more you feel right, the better you run
So wear your sport’s bra and tame the melon(s)!
I just made that up in case you think it was a Grammy winning song or something.
You can’t tell from the picture, but the center back is a flexible mesh-like material. (Yes, I wear all of those necklaces).
The bra itself is softer and stretchier than some other brands I have tried. I like my bras tight, so sometimes they can be a bitch to get on. This one goes on easy and holds my mini melons (clementines?) in place. Other bonuses:
- Antibacterial (in case you emit a lot of bacteria while running)
- Seamless design to prevent chafing (I do not chafe, but if this is an issue for you, this might be a good choice).
- Moisture wicking
I’ve worn this twice now. Once on a seven mile run and once to a spin class. I give the bra an A+ for comfort and breathability (moisture wicking fabric). I think it looks good too. I am not a well-endowed girl, so I cannot speak to how well this bra contains those possessing bigger breasts and cleavage. I don’t even know what cleavage is.
The bra comes in 10 sassy colors (including neon pink!) and the cost is $35.99 plus shipping.
The only drawback I could find to this bra is the price. Yes, you could find a cheaper one other there. But, I pay upwards of $40 a shot for my Vicky’s Secret everyday bras, so why wouldn’t I invest in a good running bra as well? My experience is that when it comes to bras, you do get what you pay for. If this one lasts a long time and holds its shape, $35.99 seems like a good deal.
I do take issue, however, with the shipping costs, which is $9.98 (UPS Ground). That is the cheapest option available (unless I missed something?). I think this is really overpriced to ship a damn bra. IMHO.
