The MiBra Giveaway & The “Vote For Me!” Plea

The MiBra Giveaway & The “Vote For Me!” Plea

In last week’s post, I shared a couple of insane photos of myself…including this beauty:

Believe it or not, that ain't even all of my hair. Half of it is up in a clip. LOL

Much to my surprise, I got a couple of e-mails not caring too much about my hair (even though that ‘fro was kinda large)… but trying to find out the details on my sports bra. I’m not used to that… after going from a 42DD down to a 34B, I pretty much feel like no one’s looking down there anyway, regardless of what gear I’m wearing.

I saw the sports bra on a review on another site, and decided to give it a shot. I don’t really have too many bras that fit, and my sports bras are certainly too large now. Why not? That sports bra, called the MiBra, is easily my favorite thing to wear. It rocks.

First of all, the thing is soft.. almost second-skin soft. When I run, there’s no big bulky band anywhere on it scraping against my arm or my skin. I regularly forget that I have the thing on.

But for me… the thing that I love about the MiBra is the pocket in the front. If you’re an avid runner, you know how frustrating it can be holding stuff in your hands… and while I have an armband for my phone, I hate the way that thing scrapes against my arms, slides down, yadda, yadda… with my MiBra, I can just slide the phone inside the pocket and go on listening to my music. Don’t worry about wearing a shirt over your MiBra with your music in the pocket – I do it all the time, no problems. There’s also a cover that covers that top green part that you see there in that photo, I just didn’t use it for the sake of the photo.

Surprisingly, after reaching out to the maker of the MiBra on twitter to tell her how much I dug her product, she reached right back and decided to offer up one for a giveaway!

Want a free MiBra? You’ve got three ways to enter:

  1. Drop a comment here telling me about your workout routine, and how you think the MiBra might help you out! I want juicy details! If you’re running up and down stairs for a half an hour, listening to instructional yoga mp3s or lifting weights… share that! Get a little inspiration going, here. You might even give someone a new creative exercise to add to their routine! (Remember.. we help each other, here. :))
  2. Join the MiBra facebook fan page!
  3. Comment here – again – telling me that you voted for me in the Black Weblog Awards for Best Health or Wellness Blog category! That’s right – BGG2WL is a finalist thanks to you! Let’s do what we can to bring it home! 🙂

Contest ends Thursday so get voting, commenting and posting! Looking forward to seeing what y’all have going on in those comments!

Update: The largest size the MiBra can accommodate is a 40D at this time… but don’t worry. I fully intend to harass petition her to go up a size for you gals with the extra boobage. 🙂

    FYI: I didn’t see sizing information anywhere on their website (as in, the range of cup sizes a small will accomodate, vs. a medium, vs. a large, etc.). I would like to participate in this giveaway, but I’m a 40DDD — not sure if the large would hold a busty gal like me.

    And, congrats on the well-deserved nomination.

    For the top heavy ladies like myself, the elomi “energise” sports bra is the ticket. i’m a J and it is like heaven. really holds everything in place. it is NOT an everyday bra – comforable for exercise only.

    btw, voting for the blog but don’t want to enter the contest.

    This bra would be perfect for me as I am (now) an avid runner! I hate holding my ipod and wearing it on my hip, it is awkward in both positions. This bra looks like the solution to my problem. However, I am a biiiiig busted girl and am wondering about the sizes! It looks like a great bra!!!!

    I love that bra and that fact that it has a pocket is exactly what I’m looking for. I take my dog out for walks and try not to have anything in my hands other than the leash. Sometimes it’s difficult when carrying a cell phone, etc and not having pockets in my leggings. I use my cell phone to listen to music and give me some rhythm to walk to. Thanks so much for your blog… I love it!! BTW… I also joined the MiBra Facebook fan page and voted 4 u in the Black Weblogs Awards.

    jealous that you went from a DD to a B Cup…suffering with DDDs

    You are truly a blessing and your site was totally brought in to my life for a reason. I appreciate your guidance you give to women. You give the same advice I give to my friends that are trying to lose weight and I thank you. By the way… I love your hair like the way that it is. It is beautiful. As long as you love it then that’s all that matters. I went from having long hair down my back to a Rihanna cut (as my hair dresser calls it). even though everyone told me not to do it. The first time I cut 19 inches off and donated it to Locks of Love.
    As for my work out.. I swim a half a mile every morning at 615am (in an outdoor pool.) No matter the weather and no matter how tired I am.. I get up and do it. I know the wonderful feeling of life I get after swimming, it’s my drug of choice. It’s a wonderful way to wake as well.
    Then after work I go home and then go for a 3.83 mile walk/run and again I get the fresh breath of life and and incredible feeling of being alive. I will do it in the rain, cold, sun and if it snowed in California I would do it too.
    I am trying to make a workout play list to Walk/run to.. music that inspires me.. music that gets me going but putting my itouch in my bra doesn’t not work so I rarely bring my music with me. and I don’t have running pants with pockets and I can’t run with a sweater on. I sweat like crazy. I know my run is extra wonderful the harder I sweat.
    Last month I was unable to run the 3.83 miles in the normal area I run but that didn’t stop me. I ran in the neighborhood I was staying in… and there was a slight incline and STEEP hill that I ran up… that was a killer… but I still did it any way. Even though some days with no energy… I walked at a semi fast pace. I noticed that after my run I felt like i had a 2 hour nap… full of energy.
    I always said I would never run and I just wanted to swim.. Now look at me.. I am addicted to running.
    I was only going to run Monday thru Thursday when I first started running.. but never tried it. I run Monday Thru Friday and most Saturdays.
    I have so many people that discourage me from swimming in the morning and running in the afternoon but I am doing it for myself and my health. My mood and spirit are so much brighter when I run and swim everyday. I am happier with life and those around me.
    I have people make mean comments to me but I look at them and I say “what are you doing to help yourself?”
    Again Thank you for the love and advice you give… 🙂

    Wow! DD to B?! Quite impressive!
    I would love to have a MiBra not for myself, but for my daughter. She has recently started working out with me, but is very attached to her beloved iPhone, which she holds in her hand the whole time.
    Our routine consists of some form of cardio (AMT machine, elliptical, or treadmill) for 30 minutes at least 3 times a week followed by strength training.
    We will also begin adding swimming to our routine as we both just finished taking an intermediate swim lessons class.

    PS: I don’t know if the MiBra comes in her size (G cup), but it’s worth a try.
    I voted for you and joined the MiBra Facebook page

    I work out 6 days a week and I vary my routine. I did 60 mins on the elliptical yesterday, today it was 40 minutes of aerobics with weights. That sports bra would help me get an extra bounce in my step as I jam to my workout playlist. I’m on my way to vote. Good luck and thanks for all you do. You’re my morning cup of “coffee”!
