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.
WIN IT! One mama will win a Fabulous Athletic Bra®! To enter, simply leave a comment on this post prior to Friday, Mar. 28, at midnight (don't forget to follow the rules). The winner will be announced and contacted on Saturday, March 29. * Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

Being a grandma, I need a good workout bra - the support would be appreciated!
This mama needs all the support her babies can get. There are only so many times I can smoosh these puppies into too-small bras just so I can go for a jog without damaging my optical orbs. When I do that, it feels like I have a stack of 12 telephone books sitting on my chest. 36DDD or 36F, if you only have one D to work with...
I just started working out again. I'm in desperate need of a decent bra!
I'm training to run a marathon with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training so it is definitely the right time for me to win something like this!
Boy, could I use this! I've just started running, and the average style sports bra just doesn't hold up, if you know what I mean!
I really could use this! Pick me
My ta-ta's need all the help they can get! Thanks!
Would love a great work out bra! 36D for me.
I work out every day and this would come in super handy. It looks very supportive!
Boy could I use this! Please count me in!
Ever since I got pregnant with my first son (and my boobs grew 3 sizes!)I have been trying to find a bra that supports me and actually works...maybe this will be the one! I would love to win!
I love sports bras. This one seems like a very good one, and thanks for having sizes for "bigger" ladies. A lot of sports bras end at 38C - GEEZ!
I could use a new sports bra...
I would absolutely love this bra!! I need all the support I can get!!!
This would be great for me in a 34-B
Thank you for sponsoring the contest!
This sounds like a great product. I know a ton of ladies who'd love to get their hands on one.
Looks like a great bra!
I'm a runner, and really need this!
a perfect prize
I would love this for jogging.
No matter what size you are, when you hit a certain age we all need Support!! I am a 36C and I have yet to find the perfect Sports Bra! This sounds like a good possibility to me!
I sure could use a GOOD sports bra!
I have always had trouble with this - being well endowed and after a kid it is even worse. Please count me in - won't put size here if you don't mind :)
I could use s new bra.
I need a 34D.
I have not been able to find a sports bra that fits right and holds well since Im somewhat big busted. Hope to win this and finally have a sports bra that I like
Support! Support! Support!
I NEED a new sports bra. I have not lost the baby weight - Lily is only 8 weeks old - and the only sports bra I have that fits is in HORRIBLE shape - you don't really want to know how bad! Now I really need one when I work out since I am nursing. I would love to win the Fabulous Athletic Bra because $90 for a bra is too much for me to spend right now.
This could be exactly what I need to get me started on a workout routine again. :) 38C
Would love to try this for when I'm running on the treadmill.
A sports bra in MY size. What a novel idea! Never could figure out why the people that need one the most have the hardest time finding one.
44c please i could use this
My wife is still looking for the perfect runnign bra - and I think she woudl rather I not post her size here!
38C for me.
I would love a sports bra.
A very nice bra- 34B would be perfect.
Could always use a good bra.
It's always so hard to find a GOOD sports bra! Make mine a 40DD! Thanks!
I'm a 38A, so this wouldn't fit me. However, it would be great for my daughter.
I would love to own what sounds like a terrific sports bra like this one! :)
This bra looks so comfortable! As I have aged things are just beginning to be a little droopy and I think this is just what I need to support me during workouts or even just working around the house. You know on those days you really don't want to wear a bra but you still do because you have to.
Thanks for the contest!
Lets just say nursing does not do the best things to your boobs... I could really use one of these.. lol
I added you on prizeatron too!
I am yet to find a bra with the right support for sports. Would love to try since it looks so good.
I really need a workout bra! I've quit smoking and started to get back into shape. I'm feeling pretty good - but a little "bouncy" when I exercise. Ha, ha!
Sounds great. I have trouble finding a fit that I like.
this would be great for me, so i can finally start doing aerobics again, so i'm not out of control, hehehe!
It's time for a better sports bra than the one I'm hanging on to!
Think this could help me not get a black eye when I jog???
I've never heard of this brand, but it definitelly sounds better than what "I have now
I would love to win this!!
This sounds like a great sports bra, it is hard to find a good one.
i would love this bra in size 38 b...
I would love to win this
I would love one of these - I can never find an athletic bra that doesn't cause chafing.
Support and comfort definitely could use this
I could use a nice workout bra
I run. I could definitely use this!
Just what I need before I start rebounding! Thanks!
I need a good workout bra
tiramisu392 (at) yahoo.com
What a great contest. I really like the look of the Ultra athletic bra. Thanks!
I would love to win this for my 13 year old daughter.
She is a 40DD and moving into a DDD, she really needs a bra that she can wear that will be comfortable in all day. She plays soccer and it's hard to find a bra that will work for her active life!
Lilith_Silvermane at yahoo.com
I, too, am well-endowed and could use an awesome sports bra. Here's hoping the girls win something!
I would love to win
I could use a new sports bra.
Oh wow! this is an amazing contest! I've always had a bigger chest than anyone in my family and have always had problems finding a bra that actually fits. To this day, I still don't have one that fits right. Please enter me!
It is so hard to find good supporting bras in the bigger sizes.
I play volleyball every week and always wish I had a great sports bra.
nottheplan at gmail dot com
With all the running around I do, I could use this.
This would be great! Thank you
who couldn't use more support?!
Wow - this would be GREAT!!! This "young Grandma" can definitely use some extra SUPPORT!! Thanks! :-}
Oh I could DEFINITELY use one of these!!! Thank you for the chance to win~
I hope I win one of these bras. I just started working out again and could really use one of these bras.
oh i need athletic bras right now. its a perfect time to join in here. pls count me in.
I hope I win because I really need a new sports bra!
Could use this to work out in! Thanks.
I would love to have a sports bra that is comfortable. I only buy the cheap ones.
I would love a bra that made exercising more comfy, I would even exercise more
While I am not blessed with much in the way of "endowment", infact I am smaller than before I had my two kids, I have had trouble finding good support and comfort - I also hate the feel of the "uni-boob" and this one looks like it doesn't do that! I hope you give me a chance to own it!
Sounds like exactly what I need.
jmdennis at iname.com
This would be awesome! I'm still getting used to being "well-endowed" after having my 2 kids. Needless to say, the pregnancy "growth" never went away after either pregnancy, so they just keep getting bigger! LOL!
dansan826 at yahoo.com
sounds like great support!
I hate those unstructured sports bras that squish everything into one big monoboob. These bras have separate cups and look *much* better than the sports bras I've tried in the past.
This bra sounds too good to be true, would love to win one, great giveaway.
I can use a good sports bra.
Man, a sports bra that is supportive like this one is a dream come true for larger chested women. The only "good" sports bra I have is the Enell (sp?) and one only works for so long, ya know?!
I need a workout bra
this would be great to try
looks great :0)
OH Gosh I could use this!!!!
I could use some comfort, during my workouts.
I could really use this, Count me in please
This looks wonderful, and I can definitely use it as I just started going to the gym on a regular basis.
I always can use a new bra!
I would love a good quality sports bra, it's almost impossible to find one that keeps everything from moving around and performs like it's supposed to. This one looks fabulous!
I absolutely agree with others comments. It seems impossible to find a good exercise bra in anything larger than a C size. Thanks for finding a solution!
OMG I totally could use this in a size 38DDD. It is so hard to find a sports bra in my size. The bigger they are the harder they fall you know. I could really use the support. Thanks!
Happy Easter! I have not seen an athletic bra that looks like an everyday one. I like it! I have only seen the typical type. Please enter me in your drawing. I appreciate it! Thanks,Cindi
I never thought after having my first child my chest would need more support than it did prior to pregnancy. I'm still on the prowl for the perfect exercise bra. Would love to try this one out!
wakeyes AT yahoo DOT com
looks great! I sure could use one of these!
I definitely need to 'Keep My Bounce in Check'. And to think they make bras for the larger gal. This would be perfect for me.
Wow! A sports bra that actually fits! What a great idea. :)
Hmm... I have some pretty grungy bras that need tossing, sure would like to win, thanks for the chance.
This would be great for my workouts.
Thanks for the contest. Count me in!
I work out a lot & really would love to win this!
This would be great for running. Thanks!!
[email protected] I WEAR MOSTLY SPORTD BRA'S FOR THEY FIT ME BETTER AND ARE EASIER TO WEAR
I only have one sports bra & I go to the gym 3 times a week....the one gets a lot of washings! Sure could use a new one:)
This looks like a great bra for me.
Enter me, please.
looks great, would be a nice win! Thanks!
this looks so comfy and in larger sizes too
Who couldn't use a great sports bra
38D 4 me
a good sports bra is really hard to find..thanks for the sweeps.
Finally a sports bra for "well-endowed" women. I could really use this bra for my fast walks in the park. I have several friends that could use this Fabulous Athletic Bra, too.
great prize really want to win
I just started a walking plan and could use this for sure!
Looks like a great sports bra. COunt me in!
Please enter me and thanks! SOmetimes it hurts just chasing my daughter around.
I can relate! I need a good workout bra that minimizes the bounce and that is affordable. It's hard finding one that fits.
Nice!! Thanks for the chance.
It's tough enough finding the time and energy to work out and then to be uncomfortable is just too much. This sounds like a great motivator!
Nice prize, Thanks!
I have such a hard time finding a bra that fits and is comfortable. This bra looks like it might do the trick.
great site/great products/great contest-thanks :)
I need this Sooooo bad - For years, I have been able to find anything that will provide lasting support
I have been looking for a new bra to support me better while running. This looks perfect.
I've been planning to get a couple of these for my workouts.
it looks very nice along with being functional.
Oh my gosh, I've been looking for something like this for years! I've purchased so many bras that don't work for even simple things like running around the yard with my kids. After my last son was born and nursed for 2+ years, Im a whole bra size larger and I've noticed the issues even more. I'd love so much to win!!
I would love a good supportive workout bra!
I'm in need of a new bra.
I would love a new workout bra!
i love your colors,they look very comfortable,great giveaway.
I could give this bra a good home!! Thanks!
WONDERFUL! Oh, how I could use this!
What a comfie cradle for the 'twins' ;-)
I just started a walking plan and could use this for sure!
I could use a better bra for my morning work outs! This line of bras looks like it would be much more comfortable than the ones I'm use to wearing.
Thanks for a great giveaway,
md-sweeps (at) hotmail (d0t) com
Amen I can completely relate to the trauma of bra shopping! I have trouble finding any bra that fits and is comfy. I've always wanted a sports bra but have never found one in my size that didn't give me the "uniboob" effect! I would be soo happy to have a supportive sports bra for my workouts.
How cool is this! I hope I win, I can NEVER find a sports bra that supports me. Great contest!
Need one for my aging bounciers. This bra is what I have been looking for a long time. I am tired of my front getting tired before I do. I have been binding them up so gravity did not give me a new spring to my run that should not be there.
I need a 32B. Thanks!
great for larger ladies like me!
thanks for the contest
So hard to find good sports bras; would love to give this one the test! Thanks for another great contest!
guysrose at aol dot com
These bras look fantastic. Support and comfort I woukld like
I would love to give this a try. I have been walking, but I want to add running to my exercise routine once the weather gets nicer.
I would love to win this, size 40D. I might finally be able to work out without being embarassed.
ann dot guns at mac dot com
Less bounce is better, especially for those of us whose cups runneth over!
wow, with 3 kids gavity is not my friend, I sure could use this!
I need this badly. LOL. I hate all the sports bras out there. They are not comfortable and mash me down. This looks really nice. I may be inclined to exercise more if I had this.
I really need this!
I've tried straping them down, double up on the sports bras, tight t-shirts on top of the double up, you name it and i've probably tried it at least once. Front hook, no hook, back hook....but still no real hook-up. This bra looks like the answer to the jiggle, muffin top, the side spill, and the uniboob. I think the FAB will make my workout tops look nicer too. So, look out kickboxing class FAB is ready for class. [email protected]
This bra would be great.Right now when I exercise I wear an old bra.Sport bras just mash me.
I could use this for aerobics class. I need a 36 B.
I love that the Elite has cups... no uniboob!
Yes I could use this, because of my back.
Just my size. I need one.
I don't have many bras due to not being able to find comfortable ones, I haven't found a Sports bra yet to my liking......would love to try this one!
WOW thats a nice looking bra. I sure could use one.
I love this! I need this!!
This sounds great and I really need one of these. Thank you so much and have a wonderful Easter!
The Fabulous Athletic Bra would be great for running and is feminine to.
I've bought and thrown out more sports bras than I care to remember. It would be great to have one that really fits and does what it's supposed to do. Great giveaway!
I could really use a sports bra for the gym. Size 36D
I'd love this!
This would be so useful!
Sound like a uplifting moment.
i would like to win this 34B.
At 51, the "girls" are hangin low...I need a lift!
I'd love to give this bra my run test! With your positive comments, fingers crossed to win.
laurachilton (at) hotmail (dot) com
Boy do I need this!38DD
This is exactly whay I need when I work out. I haven't found a sports bra that I really liked. This should work well. A 40DD please.
Im desprate for a good bra, I wear mine til they fall apart and Im getting to that point again!! 40C pleaseeeeeeee!!
num1twinkie at yahoo dot com
I'm always looking for good sports bras!
38D for me
This looks like a great bra - need a 30DDD please.
Wow! I have needed one of these for years! I have never found a sports bra that did what it was supposed to. Not ever! I suffered through boot camp, and four years of the Navy wearing sports bras that never fit right, or gave me the support I needed. I wear a 36DDD, and I can barely find bras that fit me, period!
I'd love to try a good bra!
Having the right workout gear would definitely help me get back into the groove (one less excuse as to why I just can't do it!). And I'm sure Hubby didn't mind helping you with the bouncing test...lol. :o) Thanks for the chance to win! gumbi1313 at msn dot com
Could use this bra. Always need one. Pleae enter me. thanks.
My girls are really being affected by gravity these days and these seem so comfortable that I could sleep in it. Finding a good bra is essential to my wardrobe, and this looks perfect.
I truly need this. Fingers crossed.
This looks incredibly comfortable which is exactly what I require in a bra and after 4 kids I need the support this offers too. Thanks for the great giveaway.
I'm a nursing mom who could really, really use a great sports bra right now! Thanks
Yep--I've always been well-endowed and need help with support. Please choose me!
I would like to try this!
Top-heavy women rejoice! If it does what it promises it is a Godsend.
This would be great!
Boy could I use this!!
I could really use this!
I sure could use a new bra. This one looks so nice.
After starting my excercise routine back up recently, I could really use this! Thanks! Jenny
Hi. This bra sounds fantastic!!! It would be so great to have this to start my new workout after having my 3rd kid 6 weeks ago. I bought a cheap sports bra at a local store and the straps broke within a few days!!! Ugggghhhh!!! My oldest daughter at the age of 9 is my fashion consultant...she tells me if things look good or not. So if I had this bra I could just go back to listening to her make comments about my stretch marks!!!
I need this so badly. Thank kyou for the giveaway!
This is something I need!!!
Who doesn't love a new bra?! This bra sounds wonderful and will make for a flattering figure.
I could use this.
I love that they put so much thought into this bra - a gal like me who loves high underwire & support appreciates it!
Cool! I have never heard of this brand before. I would love to try this bra. Thank you for the contest.
I would love a new workout bra! It's hard to find a nice one that fits right!
I've been looking for a good one!
i need a new workout bra thanks
It is perfect and looks so comfy.
great blog and that looks like a truly supportive bra for working out
Wow, this would be great while I am cycling.
Wow! You have a size 40DDD available. Not easy to find. I could really use this.
I SO need this! Thanks.
Yes I work out everyday and a regular bra does not cut it - thank you
Perfect for Curves
Please pick me! I haven't worn a sports bra in sooo long because I can't find one in my cup size.
I could *really* use this. After nursing for a total of 3 years, my 36DD's are so hard to fit in a sports bra!!! Thanks :)
I know a good sports bra is important and mine needs an update. This bra really does sound fabulous.
Very tough to find a good workout bra. This looks terrific. Enter me please. 40c.
my daughter could really use this, she's a 36DDD & working out is a problem!
I need a workout bra badly. I ahve a large chest and my ladies are all over the place when I workout. Great giveaway!
this sounds like something I need! after having several children, this sounds like the support I want :)
