The MiBra Winner Announced, Sports Bra Chat & How You Can Get Your Own For Cheap!

by Erika Nicole Kendall

Like I said… I love my MiBra, and was excited when Carolina, maker of the MiBra, opted to sponsor a giveaway on this site. Not only do I support small businesses (because, well, I run one), but her product is super eco-friendly and functional. That gets any support that I can offer. 🙂

I chose this photo because it makes me look like I have more boobage than I really have... because I really have none. None at all. LOL

Having said that, let’s get down to the winner!

Congratulations to Tam! Look for my e-mail requesting your address to hand over to Carolina, so that we can get you your MiBra! After 12PM Saturday, I’ll be releasing the bra back into the wild and picking a new winner!

For those of you who may be a tad bit disappointed, have no fear! Carolina handed over a discount code for $5 off your very own MiBra! When you visit her site to make the purchase, use the code ANDREINA to get your $5 off of your purchase.

Please believe I fully intend to buy another one… because I’m kinda ticked that I can’t sleep in mine.

The MiBra goes up to a 40D for the large – but I don’t want to leave out our ladies who are a little further down in the alphabet – what kinds of sports bras are you using? Where are you purchasing them from? Any tips for purchasing a good sports bra? Let’s hear it!

So let me know! Are you purchasing a MiBra? For you DDs and up, what are you wearing? If we’re going to protect our boobs, let’s make sure we’re all properly equipped!

(Today’s post is short – for me – but I’ve got to go prepare the Clean Eating Boot Camp! That’s right…get ready for it!!!!)

I wear the Enell and I got mine off EBay and I love, love it, even though there is still uniboob-ed ratchedness, it’s so much less bounce that I don’t care!

+1 to the Enell love. Expensive, but worth every penny. Less bounce and therefore, less pain and discomfort.

I’ve always wondered why it’s so difficult to find high quality workout, fitness, and yoga gear in larger sizes. It’s supremely annoying in our fat shaming culture to be preached to about exercise, only to be unable to readily find quality garments to do so.

I use the Shock Absorber bra in a G cup. One place to find it is here http://www.barenecessities.com. Or check out your local Nordstrom store, or Google it to find other stores in your area that carry it.

I second the shock absorber. I’m a 36JJ-US and a 36HorHH-UK. As my band size shrinks yay, my cup size does not want to follow, less belly just makes them look even bigger 🙁 The shock absorber is the truth. I specifically like the Level 4 Max No Wire Bra. I purchase them from http://www.barenecessities.com and http://www.figleaves.com. Figleaves sells a two-pack which is less than ten bucks more than just the single bra. I had an Enell once and while it did the job, I did not enjoy the complete back coverage. The shock absorber provides more support, less squishing, and uses a cross back that is covered by most of the tops I use to workout in.

I just ordered a MiBra. Wish I would have seen the coupon before placing my order! Oh well maybe next time.

I’m a 34G and I have a Freya sportsbra that I love. Looks like a regular bra but its like industrial strength – keeps the girls in place but doesn’t squeeze me to death either.

Lauren August 8, 2010 - 11:05 PM

The code didn’t work for me :'( Is it expired?

Keisha R August 9, 2010 - 6:16 PM

This post came right on time…I just came back from the gym and lord knows I need a good sports bra!

Carolina August 10, 2010 - 4:31 PM

Girls, You can also use the code Nikki if Andreina isn’t working for you.
Let me know if you need any help!!

I’m a 42 DD (down from a DDD- YAY), and Lane Bryant actually has a really great cotton bra that’s very soft, but provides a lot of support. It’s fantastic for sleeping or working out in.

Thanks for the bra recs. I have been working out in a regular bra + a sports bra top. I’m a 36F and it’s not a game out there.

Tiera October 26, 2011 - 8:52 PM

I need a new sports bra as well, but does the MiBra support women that have bigger ones? I’m not huge but I’m not exactly an A-D either. Will I get the much needed support? It’s embarrassing to be running a mile and the girls won’t sit down lol. I feel like people are staring when I run, not to mention the discomfort.

Hey I wear a 32 or 34 G cup or a 32 fff and I get my sport bras from Iris lingerie in Brooklyn Ny. Most stores do not carry my size. I have a Freya. I want to try other brands. When I do my exercise I like when my breast stay in one place. One of the many reasons running is not ideal because of the girls.

Lauren July 26, 2012 - 5:20 PM

I’m a 34F to 34FF depending on the bra style. I used to wear the Freya and thought it was great. However, before soccer started last spring I decided to try the Panache sports bra and it’s awesome — little movement, no uniboob and you can breathe. Irony is I’m not fond of the Panache’s non-sports bras…

I worn the bras from Title Nine ( http://www.titlenine.com) for years and they do the job. Though not as pricey as some of the others mentioned, they still provide good support. I”m a G cup..somewhere between 42 and 44 and they control my bounce very well.
