Enter: the Lululemon Energy Bra ($ 52, shop.lululemon.com). Made with their fancy Luxtreme technology, this sweat-wicking cross-strap is engineered to stretch four ways without shrinking or tugging-making it damn no matter what you put it through. It's one of their most popular sports bras and is available in 1
And I can promise you, I put this baby through the wringer: strength training, speed runs, cycling, boxing, and trail running in Africa. It totally exceeded my expectations, showing no wear and tear after countless years and washes. [Need help getting the stink out of your workout clothes?] )
I'm sure you're thinking and thinking, "With those straps, how can it be comfy?" IDK how they did it, but they did. Proof: I had to make love with Marie Kondo in a packing and backpack for a 12-day active vacation and, as a result, I had to make some sacrifices. In this case, it meant wearing this sports bra. That's right: I even made this bra on my 24-hour journey to Africa itself. (Disclaimer: I am small-chested, so this may be a factor in the fit.) But you know they've done something right.)
It's supportive and cute. always overheat when you exercise, it allows for a little extra ventilation too.
A tried-and-true sports that will last for 24 hours, 45 miles of trail in the desert without any chafing, and brings sexy back enough for Instagram post? Just take my money. Take all of it. (Although, it comes in at $ 52 which, by Lululemon standards, is pretty much a steal.) I think I've finally found my glass slipper-er, sports bra.
