Did you know most women will change their bra size six times over their lifetime? It’s no wonder finding a bra that fits and is comfortable is a chore dreaded by women everywhere. I have always been voluptuous in my chest. I remember as a teenager, my mom taking me to department stores to get a new bra. I always was assisted by the oldest, coldest-hand consultant and left looking like I had sno-cones. I hated those trips!
As an adult my body changed after having children. With each baby, my bosom bloomed until I was a J cup and having to special order bras. It should be noted that the average bust size is 36C, an increase from a 34B over the past 15 years. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I cried.
Finally, in 1999 I had a breast reduction. I had complications that nearly killed me, but you know what? I would do it again even knowing this. I remember the feeling of being able to just go to a store and pick a bra off the rack. It was awesome.
Then, I had three more children and now I fit in more with the British women, who according to studies, 50 percent wear at least a D cup.
So? I’m back to being voluptuous. Finding a bra that offers enough support during exercise has been difficult. I’m about to tell you about a bra that has changed all that. Made by Anita, the momentum underwire sports bra offers hydrophobic eyelet fabric. There’s an inner layer of hydrophilic toweling. The cup is seamlessly shaped and offers Ergoline underwiring. Shoulders will love the ergonomically tailored relief straps. It’s a design that leaves me feeling supported and not smushed down like typical sports bras.
In other words, Anita makes a firm support sports bra that still allows you to be “girly”.
I have run in my Anita momentum underwire bra, completed a Color Run 5K and worn it just because it is comfortable. The support is incredible, reducing the upward and downward movement by up to 78 percent.
Something about the momentum underwire bra that I really have come to love is the underbust band. It is wide, stretches and rests softly and flat. There is no sliding or digging in. It’s just a natural feel, as a bra should be.
The entire bra is made of breathable, fast-drying fabric that is supporting and shaping. This is not a support bra that has you feeling confined, it’s soft and light.
The momentum underwire bra is quite possibly the first bra I’ve ever owned that has made me feel I could run and be active. It is also one of the most comfortable bras I have ever put on. I love that the fabric breathes so there’s not that nasty sweat from being pressed together.
In my everyday wear, I find the momentum underwire to be comfortable and is my go-to bra when I need a little less on top–making buttoning a blouse or modesty a little easier.
Anita active offers a variety of bras from firm to light support in shades like nude, white, beige and black. They are beautiful and if I didn’t have a belly, I’d wear it without my tee-shirt for when I exercising–y’know, like the skinny girls!
Find comfort, perhaps for the first time, with Anita Active and celebrate your curves without compromising your activity!
