I’m gonna be honest here – I’m the queen of the cheap sports bra. Most of my bras are the inexpensive ones from Kohl’s that just smoosh the girls on down. So, I’m perhaps not the best person to recommend a sports bra. However, since April and Patty suggested that we talk sports bras, I’ll talk bras. ;o)
I’ve recently realized that I need to treat the girls a bit better. After all, I’m not a young chic anymore (and am actually turning 45 today!) Thankfully, Skirts Sports has two sports bras that work for me.
I’ve mentioned before that if I put on a sports bra when I wake up, I’m a lot more likely to run or workout that day. Well, that’s great if I’m working from home or running first thing, but if I have to work out of the home or dress at all nicely, the smoosh’em down bras (especially in the super bright colors I like) don’t really work. A while back I got to try the Kelly bra and loved it both for running and it looks good under work clothes. Win!
Recently, I got a Sabrina bra (affiliate link) to try as well. It’s for sizes A&B. Since I’m what I call a B+, it works well for me. It’s a step above my usual sports bra, encapsulating each breast to provide support for high impact activities. I find it to be a bit less bra than the Kelly bra, but still supportive enough for me. I’m a 34C in my non-running bras, but the medium is a perfect fit. When it’s as hot as it has been lately, I love that it’s a bit less constricting and a bit cooler than the Kelly bra. I also like that it’s cut a bit lower under the arms, which is nice when I’m running in crazy humidity. I like it so much that I actually bought a second one with my Boobie Run certificate.
Speaking of Boobie Run, there are only a couple more weeks to register! If you register for the virtual race ($60), you get a $70 gift certificate AND money goes towards Skirt Sports awesome Kick Start program. Just register and run 8 miles or an 8k anytime the weekend of September 11-13! Even better, use code SSMCM20 and you can get 20% off the cost of the race AND the cost of the sports bra you buy with it. Hello, what are you waiting for????
What do you run in? Do you splurge on your sports bra or cheap out the way I used to?
