I've been doing a weekly beat for Yahoo called "My January Boot Camp Challenge." I signed up for it in December, excited to be getting back into exercise. I used to be a right old gym bunny, but I'd not done any proper exercise since before S was born... Then I realised that none of my old gym kit was any use. Most of the tight, brightly-coloured t shirts were thrown out long ago, and all of my old sports bras are... well, definitely the wrong size.
Luckily, those wonderful people at Panache swooped in to the rescue, and very kindly sent me a sports bra.
When it arrived, I was expecting your standard black or white bra... but no! Behold, the sports bra of doom!
How gorgeous is that!
Now... the thing about having big boobs is, you just sort of expect some wobble. You resign yourself to it, and get on with your workout. When I used to run years ago, I was a DD cup, and the wobbling was just something I put up with. Weirdly, since having S they have grown a fair bit. I figured there was no sports bra on the planet capable of containing the wobble now.
I was wrong.
I think I may be in actual love with this new sports bra. It is, quite simply, amazing.It clips together at the back to form a racer back, and is very snug without being too tight. I tested it out with running, but also with such exercising delights as burpees - this is where many sports bras lose points. Some can do upright wobble, but most can't do horizontal wobble. This one can.
And it's such a beautiful colour and style! Gone are the days when big boobs meant unsightly underwear with lots of scaffolding and no style!
The bra costs £38 which sounds like a lot, except that I purchased a regular bra the other day, and it was £41. Girls with big boobs pay big prices for their underwear. After all, it's not something you want to cheap out on, is it! Even if Primark did a sports bra in my size, I wouldn't buy it! And with this one I think you're definitely getting your money's worth! It works better than any sports bra I've ever tried before (and trust me, I owned a lot of sports bras in a previous life), and is beautiful to boot.
