OK, yes, I am like a broken record about the weather. But the sun is here to stay! At the office, those of us bold enough to expose our wintery skin to the sun have been starting to hit outside. Although it’s a bit of a change with the wind, sun and faster courts (our indoor court is niceee and slow), we’re loving the change of scenery. Although our apparel finder has banished them to the undergarments section, I will pull out some of the cool sports bras that we have into the daylight for you to see. However you like to wear them, out in the sun no shirt, colors complementing a cute tank or under a tee, the bras that are out right now are fun and colorful. There’s nothing like a sweet sports bra to give you that little bit of extra encouragement to get out on court. And, this has been my common theme, why have something plain when it can have a fun twist to it?
First up I have for you the Tonic Women’s Spring Grand Slam Bra. It comes in five unique colors and has a cut out keyhole detail on the back that make it really different to any other bra you’ll own. (It is also offered in black and white if you want a more traditional approach.) It has a double scoop neck and mesh insets to make it comfortable and ventilated. It fits really well and will be comfortable under any shirt.
I also like the Nike Women’s Summer Reversible Strappy Bra. It comes in two colors, pink and grey and the best part? Both are reversible. Nothing like being able to change it up when you’re bored. Love it. It has adjustable spaghetti straps, which I really like for a change because they provide a lighter fit, as well as a mesh back for ventilation. One side has the Nick Swoosh on left chest, and when you reverse it there is a large Nike Swoosh on center chest. It’s designed with Dri-Fit to wick away the moisture and keep you as sweat free as possible.
Another cool bra is the Under Armour Women’s Spring Seamless Essential Bra. It has a racer back and thin tank straps that are adjustable, and it is made of soft material for a lighter fit. Under Armour offers seamless compression for the best and most comfortable fit. It comes in pink and a lighter purple, and gives the sporty woman a sporty bra to match her personality. Definitely not a bra for someone looking for large amounts of support — for that you should check out the other bras that Under Armour offers.
To go down a different road you should also check out the adidas by Stella McCartney Performance Bra. A racer back style, sporty-looking bra that features a cut out on the back to show a little bit of extra skin. It’s soft and comfy, and it’s actually miCoach compatible — this allows you to track your workout so you know exactly what your stats are while you are playing or training. It comes in two colors, tomato (a red) and white, and they match up with the adidas by Stella McCartney line.
There are also more to check out on our website, and I suggest you make a little purchase like I did (I bought the Nike Women’s Spring Pro Bra in Spark Pink for a fun addition to my wardrobe). It’s definitely now or never to vamp your bra selection up with a bit of color.
