She goes shopping, of course!
As I indicated in the first paragraph up there, I have perfectly average girls, although I joke I'm more a 34 long after having children and having my weight bounce up and down so much, along with my bewbs. Anyhoo, what did I discover while trying on at least 40 or 50 different sports bras? Us average girls get the shaft and trying on sports bras should be an aerobic activity. I've also decided that the only way to eliminate all movement completely is with duct tape, and frankly, the removal makes me shudder.
Let's get started, shall we?
If you are more kiwis or lemons than oranges or grapefruits, I think you can pretty much wear whatever the heck you want. If you only want to spend $10 on a strappy little compression bra at Kohl's, then you are in luck! If you want to spend more and get a bra with some padding and shape, you can do that too. The possibilities are endless. Happy shopping!
Alternatively, if you are more cantaloupes, you also have a ton of options, although they are a bit pricier (the Moving Comfort line received many recommendations when I asked my friends on twitter what they liked to wear and they had some cute styles). But, I've also discovered that some of them aren't as cute. That's really unfortunate. Just because your girls are larger doesn't mean you want to wear something that looks like a bra your grandmother wore in the 50s. I also discovered, the majority of bras for you more well endowed ladies had hooks in the back. When I was able to find a bra in my size that had a hook, I discovered I HATED it. Couple reasons - I have a bum shoulder, so having to reach behind myself to hook a bra that was already on was actually painful. If I did manage to get it hooked, I didn't like the feel of the hook mechanism. Again, this is totally a personal preference of mine, but I tended to run screaming from anything with hooks. I also found I did not like adjustable straps or bras that looked like traditional bras. I guess I like my sports bra to look like a racer-back sports bra.
So, did I find anything that worked for me? I'm happy to report I did! Here were my favorites:
Nike Swift Y Back
Under Armour Endure A/B
Aerie Fit High Impact
these and a different sports bra that isn't available online. Super cute and she loved the strappy one. It even has a little pocket inside the cup that fits her Nano. She is already requesting another one, but I got the last 2 extra smalls on clearance, so I told her she needed to wait until we'd earned our free bra before I'd buy her another (Aerie has a bra club-free to join-and you can earn points at American Eagle also).
