Real Talk: Curvy Friendly Sports Bras
I have heard so many of my friends use a large chest as a reason they don't run or do CrossFit or workout in general. It's time to find another excuse, ladies. (Or, not. :D). I'm linking my favorite sports bras for all the different workouts I do. Most are still in stock and some even on sale! It's my opinion that if you're over a C cup you probably don't need any bra that's labeled to be less than a medium level of support but you also don't want a maximum support turbo bra for every activity. I also had a friend once tell me that "bras shouldn't have birthdays or anniversaries." Hahaha! While it's not realistic to think we will overhaul our bra wardrobe every year. It does remind me that sometimes the life of a sports bra must come to an end. If you have any bras that are thin and worn and over a few years old, it might be time to say goodbye. Also, take care of your sports bras. I wash mine in a lingerie bag on delicate and hang to dry to extend the life! Hand washing would be better but who has time for that?! Links to the bras below!
Knix Wear Longevity Bra
This is one of my favorite bras for travel, yoga or CrossFit. It's comfortable, flexible, supportive and there's NO WIRE. I like to travel in workout gear so the first thing I do when I land is get a good workout in. It looks totally normal under regular clothes and can actually be worn as a crop top (if you are so inclined).
8-in-1 Evolution Bra
This is my favorite bra for yoga or pilates. Anything that doesn't involve a ton of impact. This bra stretches and moves with your body and the fabric dries very quickly.
Wacoal Zip-Front Contour Sports Bra
This is my favorite bra for running or high impact CrossFit workouts like double unders, box jumps or burpees. This keeps the goods up high and locked and loaded for an intense workout. It's also really easy to take off when sweaty due to the front zip! Sometimes the heavier duty bras can cause chaffing and discomfort, but not this one! This also goes up to a G cup!
ATHLETa fully focused bra
I have one of these and would love more. This is on the stronger end of medium support for me. It's not going to make it for 100 burpees or a long run, but it will survive a standard CrossFit WOD. It's great for a more intense dance class or hike. It's super soft and comfortable. I love the strap details and it looks so cute poking out underneath a tank top or on it's own!
