My New Found Love for The Sports Bra
I used to be intimidated by the sports bra. Sure I'd layer one underneath my tank top to work out, but I didn't really know a Nike from a Lulu from a Lole, until I got the opportunity to road test a whole wack of them for Huff Post. Click here to read my article and my results, but suffice to say, I've since ditched the tank and am focusing on the fit and function of my sports bras for my workouts, and particularly for my yoga practice. It bears mentioning that the first time I shed the tank top I was nervous as all heck and felt nearly naked. But as time passed I became less self conscious about my body, and happier with the way a form fitting sports bra allowed me to move, unencumbered by a sweaty tank or billowing t-shirt. Sure there are days when positioned a little too close to the classroom mirror I have a hard time not focusing on my flaws, but I'll tell you, there's something empowering about saying screw it to waiting for a perfect six pack to bare all, and just being free to move.
