I’m just full of confessions this week…
I still own sports bras from High School. True story.
And the ones not from High School are C9 Brand from Target that I stockpiled when they were on sale.
Now, nothing is wrong with my C9 bras; they’re quite good for straight compression bras, and come in cute colors at relatively affordable prices.
HOWEVER, they squish the girls into weird blobby pancakes and show off high beams like crazy with the slightest draft; neither of which benefit early morning runs or lifting sessions.
There are lightweight molded cups to combat the dreaded uniboob (because looking cute in the gym doesn’t hurt every once in a while), and though there is no underwire, it is a highly supportive racerback bra with a back closure for an extra snug fit. Basically, you get the support of a normal bra without things poking at you or weighing you down. There’s nothing that rubs, so risk of chafing is super low. The cut is extremely flattering, and if I had the confidence for it, I would totally be able to wear just the bra and no shirt for a particularly hot training day. Plus, the purple/lime green combo is a favorite of mine, and just happens to match my Nike Free Runs.
I’ve now worn this bra to run (during my 5k race on Sunday) and to the gym (yesterday’s lifting and plyo) and it held up for both situations.
I can’t recommend this bra enough.
Moving Comfort says…
Our sports bra addition to the Urban Gym collection, the Urban X-Over offers support, plus a bit of attitude. All over mesh with splice inserts, fun straps, and pop color gives this bra definite pizazz.
• Seam-free interior molded cups

•Adjustable soft padded back closure
