Check me out doing another 'fashion' post?! Anyway, I bought these two 'sports' bras from Forever 21 on the recommendation of my friend who said they were really comfy. I've somehow misplaced my old sports bra so the next time I was in I decided to pick up a couple. They come in such great colours, and some have a lace trim (see nude one). They are an absolute bargain at £3.90!
I've found there are a couple of ways to wear them, the first is just as a normal bra. It's got some slight padding and is not underwired so it is really comfy! As you would imagine it doesn't give a huge amount of support, but for days when you're just lazing about but still want a bra of some sort this is perfect. I also wore it to yoga and it was fine.
The next way is using it as extra support when doing gentle. I wear it on top of my normal bra if I'm going to an exercise class like Boxercise which involves more running or jumping about! It just gives that little bit extra support I need but it's not as effective as the other ones which are made specifically for that purpose - F21 do actually do some more expensive ones but for the exercise I do I find this is enough. You can then put a top over it or just wear it as a crop top.
The downside is that they only come in one size which is a bit ridiculous, come on Forever 21, as if all woman are the same size?! As reference I am 30D bra size and dress size 8 but I think even if you're more of a 12 you could try this as they do stretch, but again, it really depends on your boobs so worth trying on first. I've managed to get them over some of my really padded bras haha!
