Let’s get one thing straight: I now plan my laundry around this bra so that I know I will always have it when I want to work-out.
But that’s not how this love affair started off.
I am regularly a DD bra size – I’m a woman with curves. As a kid I played a lot of sports, and I would wear two bras to feel secure and smush everything out of the way. I ended up avoiding running and impact sports because the bouncing was just too painful and embarrassing.
Naturally, when I tried on the Booby Bracer bra for running I already had my reservations that it wouldn’t work. At first, it felt very snug, as if my chest was getting a little hug.
But as soon as I started running what I noticed was: I didn’t notice my breasts any more.
They were just part of my frame. I could go to a circuit class, jump around and no longer have to clutch at my chest or worry that someone was starring at my bobbing girls. I could bounce without the extra bounce.
Popular bra constructions lead me to believe that flattening compression is best because it felt secure. In reality this just made a 10lb mass on my chest. The science of the forces at play on the breast tissue shows when you separate and compress the breasts individually it lessens the impact across the tissue.
What does this feel like? No bounce, no notice, just run. The Booby Bracer is my new curvy partner in crime on my work-outs.
