Zensah sent me one of their Seamless Running Bras recently and I have to say…
This bra really rocks! The material is soft and smooth. It is comfy and doesn’t pull in strange ways at all. I’m going to ask the local Fleet Feet store to get them in stock because they’re great.
Now, for a little comparison for those of you out there who need some details:
– I am typically a 30B bra size.
– I ordered this bra in a S/M size.
Back to the bra… it comes in 10 colors and retails on their site for $35.99. I chose to get the bra in orange, so it could be my Team Challenge bra since Team Challenge colors are orange & blue. Silly, I know… especially since nobody will actually see it to know what color of bra I am wearing. (Except now anyone who reads this post will know, “Jill wears an orange bra on Saturdays with her Team Challenge group now.” So…. good for you!)
The majority of my running bra collection came from Target, with a random couple from Old Navy (I hate) and one from Champion (I love.) With my recent rib injury (I coughed too hard with bronchitis and now I have strained ribs, but they’re not broken!) I’ve noticed that my Target bras HURT that rib zone. The Zensah bra isn’t so tight that it is causing pain in my ribs, but it’s also supportive enough for me. True, I am not overly… endowed, so that may make a difference for people who are stacked.
The bra is seamless, to help minimize the possibility of chafing. The fabric is also supposed to have thermal regulating properties. This is something that is part of the Zensah technology. I didn’t notice an extreme difference in hot vs. cold, but if it is truly doing that… awesome!
I’m pretty sure this will become my new go-to bra. I will begin replacing the existing ones with the Zensah model, because I’m really happy with it. Honestly.
PS – Do you know how hard it was for me to avoid phrases that I was fearful would bring in pervy Googlers? Phrases like “itty-bitty-tittys” or “boobs”? Oh darn… I just used them. Hi Pervy Googlers!
This bra was sent to me for free from Zensah, but the gushing is 100% authentic.
I’m not a pervy blogger…just a blogger. And since i first found my go-to bra here on your blog, I may have to check this one out as well. I am, ahem, a little well-endowed so I do need something with some support. I’ll have to try this though since the GG ones I wear are a little more spendy. 🙂 I love that you get to do product reviews. 🙂
WHoops…nevermind. the M/L won’t even fit me. Back to GG! 🙂
I absolutely LOVE Zensah! But they don’t make one big enough for my girls, which aren’t terribly ginormous. I’ll keep checking and maybe they will offer that in the future.
Hmm… both you and ~moe~ mentioned that the bra wouldn’t fit. Maybe they need to re-think their sizing a little. At least offer a S, M and L instead of just the two sizes they currently make.
I’ve heard lots of good things about the Zensah sports bras, and your review is one more on the list! I usually wear sports bras from Target, too, and I have Champion bras that I’ve had since high school! I’m very small in that particular area, so I always look for something pretty simple and straightforward and it seems like more and more companies are making bras that are just really complicated looking. All that said, I think it’ll be a while before I try this one out, unless Zensah wants to send me a free one!
You’re so right about the complexity of some sports bras! I guess if it is helping the busty gals that’s awesome, but for me it just hasn’t seemed worth the hassle! 🙂
I love Zensah also, wear the compression sleeves a lot. I had seen the bra before, but your review sealed the deal. I am waiting for mine to come in the mail. The site gave me 10% off, so I pretty much got free shipping. Thanks for the review!
I love it when things work out so you essentially get free shipping. Have you tried eBates before? I signed up with that site and check it before I make a purchase from various online vendors so I can get a little bit of cash back on my purchases!
