Best Sports Bras Sized B-J

078

Yesterday was day 1 of my new online fitness challenge, and trust me I wish it was day 21 already. Don’t get me wrong I love working out! I do… I actually look forward to it. Its just that I’m tired of being on the weight lost roller coaster. Holla’ if you hear me!

But one thing I’ll always love about working out is shopping for fly workout gear. That includes bras! Hello I am the Philly Bra Lady! I love all things bras, even sports bras! And when it comes to keeping your boobie bounce to a minimum I’m your girl. Here’s why your sports bra is actually THE most important bra in your undie drawer!

A huge number of women are experiencing some breast injury from tissue moving up and down or in and out during exercise,” says Susan Nethero, founder of the bra emporium Intimacy.

  • Did you know that not wearing the proper fitting bra while working out can lead to breast injury?
  • Back pain and muscle inflammation
  • It can also lead to stretch marks and sagging

And before you think that your B-cups have blessed you with the ability to skip the bra, think again. Even the smallest sizes can experience permanent damage to connective tissue over time if you neglect to give them the right support.

Believe it or not wearing a sports bra is actually a common occurrence, especially in smaller-chested women who don’t think they need the flattening or sometimes uncomfortable support that sports bras provide. Many other women think a built-in shelf bra is enough for any workout but it is simply not enough support. The truth is that the right support is essential during a workout, especially a high-impact one which includes cardio activities.

And whats the best way too avoid breast tissue injury…

  • Get fitted, make sure your in the right size bra
  • Pick sports bras with actual bra cups that run in bra sizes
  • Stop wearing 2 sports bras at one time, Invest 1 quality sports bra
  • Make sure your bra is the right size and has the right amount of support

Here are my picks for best Sports Bra

An though there is a part of me that hates to see the Summer go, I LOVE FALL.  I love the touch of crispness in the air, the amazing running weather, and most of all I LOVE THE FASHION.  In fact I’ve already started to change my beauty routine from nudes to berry lips and I’ve started a bit of shopping too. 

Heres the fashion breakdown for the first week of FALL! I’m calling this one the September Edit! All the things to buy and wear now!

On Thursday September 3rd Macys along with the creators of Philly Fashion Week, honored New York Legend and fashion’s fairy god mother Fern Mallis. Known as the creator of New York Fashion Week, Mallis received the Fashion Icon Award.

With a career and resume that spans over the past 20 years, dotted with names like Tom Ford, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar De La Renta, she is most notably one of the most powerful women in fashion.

Her new book Fashion Lives,  is a massive collection of amazing interviews, stories, secrets and (never seen before) photographs of fashion’s royalty. Names include Donna Karen, Tommy Hilfiger, Vera Wang, Micheal Kors, and Andre Leon Tally to name a few. If your not gushing you should be. Its everything you don’t see and hear about their careers and their personal lives…

I asked for their teenage under the bed shoe box, says Mallis. Its juicy, honest and ballsy.

Its better than TMZ, E!, and Access Hollywood. As we said in the 90’s its all that in a bag of chips.

With a purchase of $30 or more attendees received a copy of this new classic (available on amazon here) and a photo with Mallis herself.

Check out my photo with Fern Mallis and other photos from the night!
