Berlei - Running Bra
After a busy week keeping up with Boo's social calender, I didn't manage to make it to the gym. I had the best of intentions, but both roads which take me there have been badly flooded with all the torrential rain we've had. I didn't want to risk it even in day light! Instead in my mission to try to maintain my fitness, I have been enjoying brisk walks and even a run in the park! Now I'm not sure about you, but I'm big busted enough that I need plenty of support even when I'm walking briskly! Running is physically painful without a good sports bra, and I have to confess I always seem to buy the big ugly ones which hold you in tightly and are not exactly beautiful!
Berlei sent me a fabulous sports running bra in a vibrant shock pink, I instantly loved the fun colour but was dubious that the bra would be supportive enough as it looks and feels just like a normal bra. After a few brisk laps walking round the park, I decided to try a run, I was impressed with how supportive the bra is and how comfortable. I like the fact you can wear the straps either straight or cross over, as it enables me to wear it with my racer back gym tops discreetly! Inside each cup is a shell type design which provides maximum support (even when you're an F cup like me!) called 'ultrasonic welding' - i bet you never thought you'd get that in a bra!
The fabric is super soft, and I confess this is my favourite bra currently! I would happily wear it all the time - it really is that comfortable! The Sports Running Bra comes in black, white, shock pink and electric blue and is ideal for high impact sports. Although described as a running bra, I think it'd be a great bra to wear even when horse riding to minimise bounce! They also do matching briefs, which aim to help reduce chaffing and offer maximum comfort - these are already on my Christmas list!
