Sorry fellas, this one is for the ladies. Hum, well maybe you'll enjoy it. I know that a few of you are kind of strange like that (and for that I enjoy having you as followers!) Or you could be the best hubby/boyfriend/significant other and read this review and purchase one for your leading lady. I'm just throwing that out there...
The other day, I won a blogger giveaway from Marcia at The Studly Runner (if you haven't gone to her blog, do it. She's great and you'll love reading about her life!) It was for a Zensah Running Bra. Did you know that Zensah made running bras? Yeah, I didn't either. I was super excited.
When Marcia told me that I had won, she told me that I needed to contact Zensah and that they would walk me through what they needed to get my bra. Corey was my contact and was super helpful. I was sent to their site and told to pick any color and size I wanted. So I picked this one:
**HA - you actually thought that I would post a picture of myself in this running bra on my blog. I. Don't. Think. So. My abs don't look like Emz! :)
I was excited that this was a seamless bra. TMI, I'm sure, but I often get really bad chaffing from my sports bra anywhere there is a seam. I usually use the C9 ones from Target and they work great, but sometimes I find that they aren't the best support for a girl like me (aka, I'm a little bigger in the top than most runners/triathletes) and they aren't the best at "wicking" away the sweat. The discription from the Zensah site about their bra is as follows:
Finding a proper fitting running bra is essential. Runners know that many running bras often feature seams or rough fabric that causes chaffing and irritation. We at Zensah understand this have developed the most comfortable running bra within the running market. Each running bra is made our properity Zensah fabric – meaning the running bra is thermal regulating, as well as moisture wicking. The Zensah Running Bra will help to keep dry when you go running.
Unlike a typical running bra, the Zensah running bra is available in 10 colors including yellow, pink, purple, orange, blue, and many more; making it the most colorful running bra on the market. You are now able to add some color to your running apparel!
This high-performance running bra offers unmatched comfort and support.
The Zensah Running Bra fits all body types.
Running Bra Features:
*Seamless design = no chaffing
* Superior Comfort from the proprietary Zensah fabric in each Running Bra
* Thermal Regulating
* Moisture Wicking – to prevent the running bra from becoming heavy with perspiration
*Available in 10 colors including pink!
I contacted Corey on Wednesday and the bra arrived on Friday! I took it out and decided to wear it that day for my speed workout at the gym.
Let me just tell you, I freaking love this bra! It was super soft right out of the box (just like my Zensah calf sleeves which I love and the same color!) I ordered a M/L and it fit perfect and was tight enough to offer support without squeezing me to the point of no return. After a hard 5.5 miles of sprinting, it didn't feel soaked (which says a lot because my clothes were drenched, as was the treadmill!) and there was zero chaffing! I was so excited!
I'm telling you ladies, if you are looking for a great bra, check out the Zensah Running Bra. I've been through my fair share of crappy sports bras trying to find something I like. It definitely lived up to the hype from the website! And the 10 color options are great for those of you with bodies that can rock no shirts! :)
Thank you so much Marcia for the blog giveaway and thank you again to Zensah for providing me with a great product! I can't wait to order a few more!
