I'm a - let's just say "well-endowed" - woman and it can be a challenge finding a sports bra that is supportive, comfortable, and that minimizes bounce. I can't just head down to Target and pick out a $20 bra and call it a day (can anyone relate?).
Thus, when I was recently given the opportunity to try out the Fabulous Athletic Bra®, I jumped at the chance. The Fabulous Athletic Bra® was designed by a husband and wife team - Martin and Barbara Marx. Martin's background is in mechanical engineering (he worked for 30 years in the field) and he also has an MBA. Barbara has a masters degree in Organizational Management and owned her own bridal shop prior to inventing FAB®.
Fabulous Athletic Bras® are "engineered and designed to be the most supportive, comfortable and stylish sports bras on the market. These perfectly designed sports bras fit women from size 30B to 40DDD and they are engineered to support and control bounce during moderate to high impact activities such as soccer, running, basketball, horse riding, tennis, softball and golf. Fabulous Athletic Bras are sports bras that have been designed for comfort and engineered to Keep the Bounce in Check®."
When I talked to Barbara by phone, she was enthused about the benefits of the Fabulous Athletic Bra® and she willingly shared her mission to help women work out in comfort - supported by a good bra. I was impressed by her confidence and her passion for the product.
When the bra arrived, I tried it on and was immediately impressed by its "snug comfort." When I ran in it, I felt supported and even had my husband do a quick "bounce test" where I jumped up and down in this bra and in my other favorite bra. The FAB® minimized bounce just as well as the other one - and actually it was a bit comfier because it didn't have the front hook opening.
Now when I head out for a run, I reach for my Fabulous Athletic Bra® first. It lives up to its promises and - what can I say? - it really is fabulous.
You can purchase a Fabulous Athletic Bra® of your own on the FAB website.
