After continually running out of sports bras midweek, because doing laundry just hasn't been my thing lately, I decided to invest in some more support. I went with a sports bra from Moving Comfort since I liked their spin shorts; I opted for the Alexis bra ($36) and couldn't be more pleased. Wearing a bra that shares a name with a friend of mine is a little odd, but both are quite supportive.
Not being that well-endowed, I always thought I didn't need to worry about quality support, but as gravity works its timely magic, I have begun appreciate a solid sports bra; the Alexis fits the bill. The bra is super supportive, comfy, and designed for high-impact workouts. I felt as if my chest barely moved while I ran intervals at the track. The bra is cut just a little high in the chest so the striped pattern showed when I unzipped the top of my long-sleeved outer layer. For me this was a good thing; my budding fashionista daughter noticed it and complimented me on my look.
To read about how the bra is constructed, read more.
On the outside, it looks like a regular sports bra, but on the inside there are two seam-free padded cups, which really cut down on the "smooshed" uni-boob feeling. I think separate cups create a better support system. It is nicely vented in the back and at the base of the bra, which is helpful for sweaty workouts.
The bra washes up well and can be dried on a low temperature setting. You can pick one up directly from Moving Comfort.
