My go to workout bra is the Energy Bra from Lululemon. I purchased my first bra from them back in 2006 or 2007 maybe and I wore it exclusively for several years. It was the only one I had for all those years, not that I used it much if I am being completely honest haha. I started doing bootcamp on a regular basis with Shannon in May 2011. It was our 5 year anniversary this past May (minus the 9 months + 6 weeks I took off when I was a surrogate)!! Anyways, I just kept wearing that same green bra and washing it wayyyyy too often. When I decided that I was going to run a half marathon and started running on top of bootcamp, I still never bothered to buy a new sports bra. Gross right?? Finally Greg told me it was time to invest in a new bra or two for physical activities. I know right, you are so surprised that Greg encouraged me to buy Lululemon. This has never happened since. Although he does think the sports bra are the only practical and necessary lulu purchases but what does he know??
I soon discovered that Lululemon no longer made my beloved green sports bra that pancaked my boobs just the way I liked. Some girls don't like their boobs pancaked but to me that is a sign of a good bra haha. I decided to try the TaTaTamer but I never loved and soon sold it locally. I did some research online and tried the Energy Bra and was hooked. I loved it and now have 10 in my collection. If I wasn't saving for the SeaWheeze in a few weeks, I would probably have more.
Here are all 10 of my Energy Bras. And here is what Lululemon has to say about them on their website:
Cool-to-the-touch Luxtreme® fabric is four-way stretch and sweat-wicking—we added LYCRA® fibre for shape retention
Added LYCRA® fibre for great shape retention
My favourite part about the bra is the fun straps on the back. They look super cute in the low cut or backless sweaters and shirts that Lululemon offers.
If you are in the market for a new workout bra, I recommend that you give the Energy Bra a try. If you shop online, every Thursday Lululemon updates their WMTM and sometimes you can find an energy bra on clearance. It is final sale if you find it on sale so it's best to try on in the store first. If you pay full price, Lululemon will return or exchange your bras for you, which is great when you are trying to decide on the best fit for your activity. I do the jump up and down in the dressing room thing haha. Whatever works right??
And speaking of WMTM, I purchased the Energy bra below on mark down on Thursday (as in August 4th not sometime in June haha) and it arrived on Monday. I love the pattern and I am going to wear it during the SeaWheeze on Saturday. It works perfectly even if nobody will be able to see it hahaha.
