Support the Girls - Moving Comfort Bra Giveaway!

 
Moving Comfort Juno Bra

Everything Moving Comfort creates is designed around women. "When it feels great, you'll be more confident and have more fun when you wear it."  The important thing is that every woman finds her Moving Comfort.

I was super excited to have the opportunity to try the Moving Comfort Momentum Shorts and Juno Bra. I wore them for short and long, outside and treadmill runs and love them!

The Momentum Shorts have a 4" inseam, wide-knit curved flattering waistband with (super long) drawcord, 2 mesh stash pockets on the sides, reflective piping down the legs, lightweight wicking brief liner and internal pocket.  Light and semi form fitting, these shorts are a pleasure to run in.


Although there are arguments for both sides about bralessness and sagging, a proper fitting, supportive bra is the way to go for running especially if you're well endowed.  I think it's neither comfortable, nor attractive otherwise.

According to Dr. Raj (What the Yuck?!):

"It's not so bad to go braless.  There's no research showing that bra-skipping leads to faster sagging (we're all headed south at one speed or another). However, when your breasts are very full (like when you're lactating) or large, letting your girls hang out increases your risk of neck or back pain.  So in these cases, you should always wear a supportive bra.  Also, it's absolutely crucial to wear a good sports bra when you're exercising, especially if you have larger breasts.  All that bouncing up and down can stretch your breast ligaments, and stretched ligaments do make you sag.  A supportive bra keeps you perky by holding ligaments in place while you work out."

To ensure that I received the correct bra, I used the The Sports Bra Fitting Room—the first of its kind—is a multi-media, user-friendly, online fitting experience. The Sports Bra Fitting Room is divided into four sections to guide women in finding the best fitting sports bra. Sections include:

-Sports Bra Finder: Women are lead through a step-by-step measuring process, all of which is accompanied by instructional videos. The Sports Bra Finder not only identifies the woman’s size, it also offers suggested styles based on her activity.
-Expert Fit Tips: Identifies common fit issues and offers solutions for troubleshooting through the use of on-body images.
- Anatomy of a Bra: Women can learn about the various components in a Moving Comfort sports bra that work together to provide superior support and comfort.
- Care Instructions: Provides women with all the information they need to ensure they get the most out of her garment.

“We believe that sports bras are an essential piece of equipment for active women, yet 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size,” said Julie Baxter, vice president of Moving Comfort. “The proper fitting sports bra, designed for the appropriate activity, can make a big difference in your performance and how you feel during your workout. Our new virtual Sports Bra Fitting Room takes the guess work out of the fitting process and provides women with the information they need to make the best sports bra selection."


Moving Comfort Juno Bra
 Using the Bra Finder tool, I chose the Juno Bra.  It is designed for maximum support (C cup plus) and sports a sexy racer back style that covers and supports.  Seam-free interior molded cups shape and support, front and back mesh zones keep you cool.  For me the Juno bra provides great support.  The hook closure on the back makes it easier to pull on and off.  Only suggestion for change would be to have one more set of hooks to make it a bit snugger around my rib cage.

  6. I am always skeptical of running/sports bras until I actually try them on and jump like hell in them. I do not want to be moving AT ALL! I should enter this though. Mine are all 9 years old... no lie. :P

  10. I tried the fitting room and posted on their Facebook wall. I would love to win. I've been wanting to try the Juno (which was one of the suggestions) but no stores in my area carry it... and I have such a hard time finding sports bras that I love, so I hate to order it not knowing if it'll be great. Winning would be awesome!
