The day has finally come, I never thought I would be able to say these simple words…. “I’ve found the PERFECT sports bra!”
Now, let me tell you how this love affair began.
A few months back I was cruising through my Gmail weeding out old emails and reading the 500,000,000,000 new Groupon, coupon, living social offers that seem to overflow inbox everyday. One particular offer from Schwaggle (A fitness based Groupon site) for discounted sports bras caught my eye.
The deal was $25 for $50 worth of merchandise. It sounded like a steal since I normally spend around $80 on this ugly Enell sports bra….recommended by Oprah by the way!
I then clicked on the link for Sturdy Girl Sports to see if they even had anything cute to offer. From my experiences the word cute and sports bra never went to together. If you’re a woman that’s well in doubt in the chest region than you know exactly what I am talking about!
Long story short Sturdy Girl has a wide variety of fashionable, stylish, and supportive athletic attire. They even have leopard print…watch out!
Not only were the bras super cute, but the customer service was unbelievable. Due to my countless attempts at finding “the perfect sports bra” I had tons of questions about which style and size would best suit me. Hilary, the founder of SGS corresponded with me and answered 1.2 billion questions about boobies, bras, and uni boobs until she was blue in the face.
I ended up choosing the Santa Monica Bra in the White Diamond/Chinchilla combo.
The combination of the thick rib band, wide shoulder straps, flattering shape, and soft compression fabric makes this one a winner in my book! After only a few short months and countless intense work outs, I decided to buy another one! Woo–hoo! The second time around I decided to go for a darker color since the white one got dirty so fast.
I love white but white doesn’t love me.
Here’s my review on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best.
The Santa Monica keeps me fully covered at all angles.
I’ve worn my sturdy girl for all different types of high impact training, and my girls never fell out-of-place.
The bra fits tight the first few times you wear it but it does stretch out nicely over a few washes.
It provides my ladies friends with the perfect amount of appropriate “workout cleavage.” Although I do get a little uni boob affect I’m totally cool with it because the support is ultimately what matters most to me.
411 Side note: I thought it was pretty cool when opening my first Sturdy Girl Sports Bra it came with a very thorough set of instructions on how to put on and take off my bra. I looked at the instructions, chuckled and tossed them off to the side thinking come on now I’ve put a few sports bras on in my life time. If i can put together an Ikea bookshelf without instructions I can most likely handle dressing and undressing myself. After an intensely sweaty workout I attempted to undress myself and get ready to jump in the shower. The combo of tired noodle arms and a very sweaty sports bra made it physically impossible to get this thing off of me! Lesson learned, read the instructions they are helpful…the SGS wiggle not jiggle maneuver is clutch.
