As a female athlete, sports bras have been a hot topic in my life. My sisters and I have tried a zillion different brands of bras for fit, style, support, comfort and durability. They are all subpar. I make do with whatever I have collected over the years. On the tennis tour, us players would sometimes sit in the locker room and vent about our sports bra woes. The dilemma is always that we had to choose comfort over support, style over flattening and suffocation that left marks on our skin. Everyone always complained of bras pinching the skin in weird areas making us bulge and look fat such as, behind the underarm or just under the scapula. The worst was when a bra was see through, not doing its job!
Many companies like Nike, have tried to create more comfortable athletic tanks with a built in bra for women but those things are pathetic, sheer and don’t support at all. A lot of tennis outfits are made with built in bras so I always end up wearing a bra underneath the outfit. It is so uncomfortable and tight in there!
I recently came across an awesome product from Sturdy Girl Sports that truly I wish was around earlier. Sturdy Girl Sports, makes the most comfortable, supportive and flattering bras I have ever tried. My favorite item is this bra tank which is a full sports bra with material to cover your stomach, not a built in flimsy piece of elastic. I can finally play serious tennis in something cute without wearing 2 bras! The colors and styles are awesome and come with matching bottoms (loved the capris, so soft). I tested them out, went for a jog, worked out and wore the bra for almost the whole day. SGS bras are truly sturdy, keep me protected, dry and very comfortable. When I took off my bra, there were no marks and it didn’t feel like I was getting out of jail. I also love how the bra keeps my full size and shape while giving me full coverage, protection (no problems in the cold weather) and support without the weird back bulge!
All my girlfriends have always asked me what the best sports bra is and I never had an answer until now. Sturdy Girl Sports is only a year old, I really wish this product existed when I was on tour!
