The Juno Sports Bra
I'm on a lucky streak lately. I've won a BIC band from my friend Kim, a Bondi-Band from Running Diva Mom, a CSN card from Forward Foot Strides and, of course, a Garmin from Knoxville Track Club. Don't hate - before last month I'd never won anything to speak of. I should totally buy a lottery ticket, right?
Most recently, I won a Juno sports bra from Moving Comfort through a Facebook Giveaway. I left a comment on their wall, and the next thing I knew there was a note in my inbox from Christine Martin, at Moving Comfort, telling me I had won this bra! Mine is a very pretty shade of blue, but the Juno comes in a variety of colors.
I am not particularly well-endowed. Veering into TMI territory, I will tell you that I'm a small C cup. I will also tell you that I absolutely cannot run if the girls are moving. I can't do it. I will drive home and get another sports bra or just walk before I'll run with boobage jiggle. Sometimes I run in two sports bras to stop any motion. Needless to say, sports bras are a big issue for me. HUGE. Showstopping, even.
Wearing two sports bras leaves horrid, painful chafe marks on my back, even with Body Glide. I have scars from chafe marks on my back and sides, but I would rather deal with that than jiggling. I usually settle for a boobensmoosher bra and horrible chafing, because what are you going to do?
Well, I can tell you what I'm going to do - after wearing this one for half an hour, and doing various jumping things all over the house, I am replacing every one of my sports bras with the Juno bra. I'm not kidding. They are a little expensive, at $52.00 retail, but this one is so comfortable I am going to sleep in it tonight. I may never take it off again. Wide, comfortable, adjustable straps, people!! In a sports bra! Last week I would have sworn that there was no such thing as a comfortable, supportive sports bra. Moving Comfort proved me wrong.
Christine sent a 36C bra, at my request, because that is the bra size I generally buy. It's a little big, to be honest. I'd probably have been better served with a 34B. The amazing thing, though, is that even with the bra running a little large, the girls are solid. SOLID. They don't jiggle. Happy boobs, indeed! I don't know what sort of support mechanism Moving Comfort has put in the Juno, but it really works. Best of all, you can still see my shape in this bra. I don't look like a teenage boy.
If you're looking for a comfortable, flattering sports bra with serious support, look no further. This is it. I'm a convert. Thank you so very much, Moving Comfort! I simply won't buy another brand of sports bra from now on. Ever. These girls are Juno girls!
