10 Of The Best DD Cup Size Sports Bras Out There

We are gathered here today to discuss the myth of the strappy yet supportive sports bra. Contrary to popular belief, this unicorn of a bra does not exist. Sure, you’ve seen it around: a delicate combo of spaghetti straps, anti-gravity boobs, and the minimalistic pull-over look. You’ve seen it on every yoga model in every yoga ad ever made.

But, myth buster… (more…)

10 High Impact Sports Bras For Women On The Run

Busy BoobsRemember that time when you wore, not one, but two sports bras to the track? What about that time when you poured about a cup of baby powder into your sports bra before running a marathon? Oh, and that time when you duct taped your boobs to prevent chafing?

We’ve all got sports bra stories to tell. And what’s in the past, is in the past. Right?

Wrong. Some of us are still running around in our sports bras from yesteryear, and it’s a problem. (more…)

Renounce the Bounce

Our Most Important Gear

What’s the first thing we tell a friend who wants to start running, hiking, or cycling? We tell her to go to a specialty shoe store to get her shoes. Why? To get an individualized fit, great customer service, and knowledgeable staff, most of whom probably do the sports we do. But what about our other most essential piece of gear? We go to the experts for our shoes, why not for our sports bras?

Here at Title Nine, we know a thing or two about bras. Shopping for a sports bra can be daunting, so we do the hard work for you. We don’t just sell bras, we try them on and test them by the hundreds. We ourselves cover the gamut from “built for speed” to “dangerous curves ahead.” We run, spin, climb, and stretch in every bra, and only the ones that meet the discerning standards of our Bravangelists make the cut. Think of us as your expert team of bra-fitting fairy godmothers. We’ll talk to you about what sports you do, help you determine your bra size, and get you shopping faster than you can say bippity-boppity-bra!

We’ve Been There

Wearing two bras on a run, straps digging into our shoulders on a hike, the band riding up while we stretch; being in the wrong bra can make us want to give up on being active altogether. It’s not exactly something we heard from mom at puberty, but a woman’s bra size can change nine times over the course of a lifetime, yet most women rarely update their measurements.

Additionally, our Cooper’s ligaments can be stretched out permanently without proper support – i.e. a well-fitted, supportive bra. Because of this, just like your running shoes, we highly recommend you never let any sports bra celebrate a birthday. Get a new rotation of bras every year (at least enough to have one up next, in the wash, and on deck), and get remeasured at least every couple of years.

 How to Determine Bra Size

Bra sizing is not an exact science, more of a good solid starting block. Have a flexible tape measure handy and wear a shelf camisole or a good everyday bra (padding, push-up cups and “major masher” styles will skew results). You’re ready to get started!

New Bras Like These Deserve an Introduction

Fall has brought us (and you) a slew of new goodies, but there are 3 new bras in the stores that we think are worth mentioning. Instead of asking you to read, investigate and ask questions, we called in a field expert (our Bravangelist Istari in the Portland store) and asked her to relay why we’re in love with these new pieces and why we can’t wait for you to try on a few. Time to get your fit on ladies! There’s a bra for every one of you in this line-up!

Lace 24-7 Bra

Meet the 24-7s pretty little sister. Made of a poly/nylon spandex this lace bra is a great new option for A/B cup gals looking for a light weight day-wear or travel bra. The internal sling system, adjustable straps and no nonsense band make this bra a perfect fit. The performance super lace gives this bra extra support and an “invisible” appearance under your favorite shirt or dress. Just like its little sister, this bra is packed with a pretty lace exterior that will charm you and a secret stubborn side that will support you from playing in the park to dining out at your favorite restaurant.

Updated Cuz-She-Says-So

Fans of the Bye-Bye Bounce rejoice! The Updated Cuz-She-Says-So provides the support of a sports bra and the shaping of a day-wear bra, much like the Bye-Bye Bounce did. Made from a poly/spandex, this bra has it all. Breathable powermesh provides great support without that “soggy” feeling, an underwire and stabilization panels provide superior lift and seam-free double lined cups support your girls from fierce workout to fabulous dinner. This bra will certainly be a favorite for C, D and DD gals.

 

 

Booby Trap

If you want a ton of firm support, but you hate wresting into your bra, this high-tech bra is for you!  It combines the fantastic hold of the 7-wonders with the ease and adjustability of the 3-Reasons. Made from a smooth combination of poly/spandex, this bomb proof bra will support you through anything. A wide chest-band creates no-roll support, while adjustable padded straps and a 3 hook back closure provide the perfect fit. (Note: For the best fit, we recommend sizing up one cup size). Just like its name, this bra is the perfect trap for your girls. From a Triathlon in Hawaii to scaling the Chimney in Yosemite, the Booby Trap provides the support you need so you can focus on what really matters.
