So when I jumped on the exercise bandwagon they were one of the first things on my mind. Quite literally in fact, because exercising without fully supported tatas hurts. Bad. Very bad. Not to mention, it is kind of embarrassing. No one wants to see that kind of mess moving about. And I actually read last night that the average breasts moves up and down a full 8 inches if you are running. Yikes!
When I got serious enough about running that the two sports bra method wasn't cutting it, I did some research. And I landed at Enell. The reviews alone sold me, even if the price was a little scary. As luck would have it, I got on the trusty old standby, E-Bay, and located some factory seconds. I was able to score two white Enell bras in my size for $70. One bra on their website runs $64. I was prepared for these factory seconds to have flaws, but I was pleasantly disappointed. There was some small discoloration on one and the other one I could never find a thing wrong with. Enell's standards must be very strict for what they will sell. Their product is exceptional and their customer service is outstanding.
Now, let me just say...these aren't pretty bras. You won't be wearing one of these babies without a shirt. They also come up pretty far in the front and have wide straps. I've found a few sleeveless shirts I can wear with them but most running tanks are out, including racerbacks.
What they lack in appearance they more than make up for in function. My ladies have never been more supported and every bit of backache I used to experience during a run is gone. Enell did not pay me for this little spiel. Enell has no idea who I am. I just absolutely love this bra! I want any woman who thinks her breasts are too large to exercise to know that there is a solution.
