All good things, including the manufacture of perfect athletic bras, must come to an end.
That’s what I want to know: WHY would they phase out my favorite, most beloved, most perfect workout bra? It’s the Moving Comfort “Jubralee.” It is everything. I wear it for every athletic activity I do, from Pokemon hunting in sun-baked parks to running a half-marathon, and — obviously — 3-4 times a week in AbsoluteFIT.
But it’s going, and my own personal stash will only last so long. Gotta find a replacement.
I’m about to lose my mind trying. I’ve tried so many other bras, including others from Moving Comfort (now Brooks Running). I even “chatted” online with a service rep from a lingerie website, giving her my requirements, and — nothin. She’s like, “Well — there are suggestions at the bottom right side of the page, maybe try those?”
For the record, I require:
- size 36D
- MAX compression/motion control. I mean, STRAP THEM GIRLS DOWN.
- full coverage
- no wires
- no racerback straps
- color unimportant, but cute combos are a nice-to-have
Why is that so hard. WHY. Whyyyyyyyyy????
Suggestions welcome, as are tales of your own workout-gear unicorn-hunts.
