The last time I bought a new bra was when I was pregnant with Sam… FIVE years (and two more kids!) ago. It was beyond time for a new one because #threebabiesinfouryearsandallthenursing. So last week, my friends and I visited Title Nine (in Edina, MN) for professional sports bra fittings.
Title Nine is a shop full of beautiful activewear for women. The name ‘Title Nine’ comes from the piece of legislature that financially supports girls and women’s sports, and the shop got their start with sports bras. They have a wall-full to choose from, from 32AA to 40F, and professionals ready to do fittings. They carry their own brand and others too, similar to those you’d find at REI. The lovely and helpful sales ladies ready to assist include Molly, their “Bravangelist”(which is the best job title ever) and she helped me find just the right sports bra for my life.
I didn’t need a crazy amount of support – just enough to handle running after children and maybe a home workout. Molly and the staff were all, I know just the ticket!, and the bra they found me certainly is. I was measured and tried on several options: this pink racerback + bra clasp, then this blue one, and I left with the 3-reasons Support Bra by Moving Comfort. I loved it because:
- It wasn’t crazy smooshy supportive, but passed the bounce test. You know what I mean.
- It has in front, velcro-adjustable straps… meaning it’s nursing friendly! Yeah! Baby Clara is still nursing away, so to have a great bra that gives her easy access is a win, win, win.
- and pssst – it’s on sale 🙂
