Crossfit ladies, have you ever looked down at your chest during a workout and been shocked to see Kilimanjaro where your chest used to be? I have. I've struggled for years to find sport bras that are functional and attractive. I hate uni-boob! I'm not huge and I'm not small. Finally I've found a sports bra that's a lot better then most that I've had in the past.
What's shocking is the size I need to buy in order to have them be comfortable. I don't feel like I'm a Large or 36 C but I am. I do have Crossfit lats so I'm OK with the 36......but C! Geesh when did Bras get so tight! So this week I bought some new sports bras, the champion scoop neck. So far so good. It's a sports bra I could wear all day. I would also feel comfortable taking off my shirt and wearing it alone.
At 30 bucks a pop this is not something you want to experiment with to much.
I would love to find more tank tops like rock climbing tanks for Med to large women. I got one last year that I love it's just so tight that it can start to bother me. http://www.stoneweardesigns.com/stor...iewCat&catId=3
Again I stress that I bought the size I should take and I should have bought the size up.
Guys sorry for this girly conversation....but ya gotta take care of the girls!!
Some feed back ladies. What have your experiences been?

Nick, you make a good point. CF ladies should not have a problem posting pic's as I'm sure most would jump at the opportunity to be in a WOD vid.

Just my usual intelligent 2 cents worth.

Jay

Jen-

I bet the reason that you are a 'c' is that the cup size has to do with the difference between band circumference and boob circumference. Your band went up, but I am going to guess your boob didn't.

For other good bras check out http://www.titlenine.com and http://www.activasports.com/

There also used to be a woman's clothing company called Athletica, but I don't think they exist anymore. The website I went to was not the one I am used to

My favorite tops are the patagonia ones (make me look like I have cleavage - there are no pictures). But, I have a small chest and so I don't need much. Try titlenine, they have some great options!!

Karin

www.roadrunnersports.com (WFS) is another supplier of great bras for those of us with *plenty* The "Maia" from Moving Comfort works particularly well....

Jennifer, they have tanks, too.

That's what happened to me when I lost some weight-- when the band size goes down the cup size goes up. I actually had to get refitted to figure it out.

I used to really like Enell sports bras. (www.enell.com, w/f safe, sort of) They are ugly, expensive and definitely give you the uniboob look but at least nothing's goin' nowhere.

Fleet Feet (w/f safe) is a store for runners/walkers/joggers that usu. has good stuff including Enell http://www.fleetfeet.com/

There was a great article in the Tucson Weekly (w/f safe) about wrong-sized bras etc. that I found interesting--they estimate 80% of women are wearing the wrong size!

Thanks Karin and Jen for the links!

Karin,

My wife just got a new Athletica catalog in the mail. I'll check to see what website they have listed. My wife loves their stuff too.

If anyone's wondering, how could a guy NOT check out this thread after reading the title?

Thanks for all the links. I just put a tank on today that's a M and it's just to darn tight. It's a stone wear Designs. Tight under the arms through the straps.
