The folks at Under Armour contacted me awhile back about doing a giveaway just in time for Christmas. In the spirit of giving, I was happy to review and giveaway a really great product, the Armour bra!
Let me tell you a little bit about this beauty before I tell you my personal experience.
-Removable, molded cups
-Order by bra size
-Straps built with stretch technology to eliminate digging
-Ultra soft, but sturdy fabric
-Cradles for support to help you stay put
-Moisture transport system wicks sweat away
-Racerback design and mesh for ventilation
Now a little bit about my personal experience and thoughts:
My favorite thing about this bra is the modesty. I live on the gulf coast, and it’s HOT nine months out of the year. I have no problem running in just a sports bra for comfort, but a lot of bras on the market just don’t cover enough or aren’t thick enough for me to feel comfortable running in public in the bra alone. The removable padding and coverage of this bra are just what I was looking for as far as a “wear alone” piece.
I also really like the feel of the bra and the ventilation of the mesh. It fits me well, and I felt zero bounce on my eight mile run this weekend. It did it’s job wicking sweat away, and most importantly, I “forgot” I was wearing it (who wasn’t to notice their bra the whole time they are running, yuck!) I also love that it’s black with just a touch of pink, which is my favorite. The black will “go” with more things but it is still feminine with the hot pink!
My one qualm was pretty fixable. The bra does have a clasp closure in the back, and the flap that covers the clasp was rubbing me a bit, so I put some anti friction product on the spot and then I was fine for my run and didn’t even notice it. This happens to me on all sports bras with clasp closures in the back so maybe it is just a personal issue! Other than that, I truly love the bra and can’t wait to wear it for more workouts, especially this coming spring and summer when it will save me from the heat and humidity!
