Last night at tap class we did some very bouncy moves, and once again I was grateful for my sports bra. If you’re endowed with “bodacious tatas,” as my hermana Kristi calls them, you’ll understand exactly what I mean.
Starting in college when the girls hit their growth spurt, I had to wear two sports bras to hold everything in place while I ran or worked out. Trampolines were no fun at all. (They’re not fun now, either, but for a different reason.) I tried lots of different sports bras, but no single bra could comfortably get the job done.
But then I read an interview with Drew Barrymore in People. She talked about how she was enjoying running for the first time in her life because she had finally found a good sports bra. She called the Enell bra “life-changing.”
I ran to my computer and found Enell bras at Nordstrom’s. So I packed up the kids and headed over to the mall. (If you haven’t shopped for bras with a toddler and a new baby, you don’t know what you’re missing.)
I was a little surprised by the look of the bra—it’s not exactly dainty and resembles a Victorian corset more than anything. But it was surprisingly comfortable and when I jumped up and down nothing moved. Hurrah!
And after my first run in the new bra, I came home giddy with joy. “It really is life-changing!” Tim could only smile and nod.
Recently, I went to Nordstrom’s for my annual purchase and discovered that Enell is no longer sold there. So I did another online search and found a store called Title Nine that carries a lot of serious sports bras with great nicknames like “The Last Resort” and “Hallelujah.”
I tried on some different bras at their Edina location and opted for a new one this time: the Bye-Bye Bounce Sports Bra. It’s a little less corset-like than the Enell bra but seemed to hold everything in place just as well. Ah, technology!
I hope this helps if you’ve been looking for a good sports bra. If there’s another brand that you like, please share!
