One of the things that held me back from running for the longest time was…”the bounce.”
That was back in the days when I tried to wear the same sports bras as my B-cupped counterparts. I’d put on one of those stretchy, over-the-head, $20 bras from Target…and get moving.
The only problem was that, when I moved, my breasts moved too. A LOT. That’s not good for a number of reasons:
- It’s distracting for people who happen to be driving by.
- It’s distracting for you.
- It’s uncomfortable and can be painful.
- It’s not good for your breast tissue.
Then, I realized that all sports bras are not created equal. I also realized – much to my dismay – that I would have to pay a small fortune for a good sports bra. Finally, I realized that it was worth it.
Long hailed by Oprah, the ENELL Sports Bra ($64) is a uniquely patented bra specifically designed for the well-endowed woman (32-52; C-DDD). It features a snap-up front and silky, yet sturdy, material. Once you get the hooks all fastened, the bra is quite snug…so snug, in fact, that you’ll probably wonder at first if the bra is too small. But then you’ll start running and notice that your breasts are compressed quite nicely with minimal bouncing. What a relief! What a miracle!
The ENELL was one of Oprah’s “Favorite Things” and has been highlighted in O Magazine on numerous occasions. Oprah is sometimes criticized for featuring items that are a tad bit ridiculous or ostentatious, but this bra is not one of them. I highly recommend it to well-endowed women.
One thing is certain: if you have a D cup or larger, an ordinary sports bra just won’t do.
