I have big boobs. They make working out a nightmare. When I do high knees, I feel like I have two watermelons attached to my chest with rubber bands that are about to break. The only sports bra I’ve ever found that actually controls my boobs during workouts is the Ta Ta Tamer sports bra from Lululemon. I only own two pairs because they are expensive ($58 each), but I wear them so often, I went to a Lululemon store a few months ago to get another one. IMAGINE MY SHOCK AND HORROR WHEN THE SALES ASSOCIATE TOLD ME THEY WEREN’T SELLING TA TA TAMERS IN-STORE ANYMORE. Instead, they were replacing it with the new Enlite Sports Bra. It costs $98. Yep, you read that right. So when Lululemon sent me a sample to try, I lined up the hardest, bounciest workout I could find and put this bra to the test.
Guys, I am in love with this bra, and it’s worth every dollar you spend on it, especially if you’re a D cup or higher. It is so soft and made me feel like I wasn’t wearing anything at all. My biggest problem with sports bras made for high impact is that they always dig into your shoulders or underneath your boobs. This bra caused absolutely no digging into my skin, and when I took it off, there were no bright red indentions like the kind I would usually get after wearing other sports bras. The fabric was also fast-drying, so I had much less boob sweat than I usually do at the end of my workouts.
I usually wear a 38DD, but I went with a 36DD because I wanted to make sure everything was held in tight. The second I tried it on, I immediately did the "bounce test." My boobs barely bounced and stayed controlled and supported throughout my entire workout. "Is this what small-chested girls feel like," I pondered to myself as I did burpees without the fear of getting a black eye from my boobs. I wore this bra during HIIT workouts, on the elliptical, and during circuit training, and it provided great support throughout each workout. Spending $100 for one extremely high-quality sports bra is worth it when you think about how much money you’ve spent on shitty sports bras that lose their elasticity after one wear. Bottom line: My boobs have never felt better." —Ciera Velarde
Get it from Lululemon for $98 (available in sizes 32B-38DD, five colors).
Lululemon sent me this bra to try free of charge, but I wasn't obligated to positively review it.
