RUN BRA | TANK | BOTTOMS | TRAINERS

On my way to train for my third marathon this week. I’ll be racing in Berlin, Germany come end of September, my first international race. Back in November, I got lucky and won a lottery placement. The chances are usually pretty slim, like 16%. So, damn straight I was excited!

At the same time, I worry the event might not happen due to Covid-19. You can’t blame me for being concern, since most major marathons have either been cancelled or postponed.

After discussing with Pete, my coach-husband, we decided to move forward with the training. Just in case, if the race does happen, I need to be ready and well trained.

As I start to rev up my program, I think about the clothes I wear. You only feel as good as you look. Let’s not forget about comfort too!

RUN BRA | HOODIE | BOTTOMS | TRAINERS

Brooks new Run Bra is the holy grail in the current athletic wear market. I’ve tried many sports bra in my span of marathon trainings, and nothing compares to their’s. That’s a lot to stand up to, so here’s the low down……

WHY ARE THE BROOKS RUN BRA THE LEADER OF SPORTS BRAS?

The bra team from Brooks, outreached across the country to find out what their customer’s loved and disliked about sports bras in general. They put together focus groups and listened to their feedback. Also included bio-mechanical research and lab tested the products, before they launched this Spring.

One of their major takeaways, is comfort. Which made them realized, “the lack of a supportive bra can slow you down”. Studies has shown, when breast movements are not properly controlled, a woman can lose up to 4cm in each stride while running a marathon. That’s about running an extra mile in which they called the “hidden mile”.

With the supportive research, they revolutionized the design, fit, support and comfort of their bra. Instead of calling it a sports bra, they have renamed it to RUN BRA, because their bras are made to “free runners from distraction”.

WHAT MAKES THE RUN BRA REVOLUTIONARY?

Let’s take the Dare Cross Back Run Bra I’m currently wearing. This style is sexy with enough neck drop for some clavicle action (the sexiest part of any women’s body). The cross back is designed with a thicker strap, giving it maximum movement.

Its seamless construction reduces the amount of fabric that are traditionally used in garment making. The reinforcement around the neck, armhole, and bottom band has a recovery fabric technique engineered, to prevent it from stretching out. Which is a huge problem I’ve found in all seamless garments, like the underwear or bras I previously own.

The bras are constructed with a built-in cup. As heat generates from your movement, it helps form the cups to mold and fit perfectly into your breasts.

Overall design of the bra is streamline and sleek, from the minimal logo, to the details. When I run, I could barely feel like I’m wearing a bra.

There are many styles for different body types, with sizes running from 30B-44E. So you’ll be able to find a Run Bra that best suits your running activity by taking their survey.

Give them a try and comment below if you have any questions about the product!

Wish me luck on my training! Stay well and healthy my friends!
