The $4.75 Sports Bra!

Fuscia

I’m always on the lookout for the perfect sports bra.  If I’m doing an intense workout,  I want to stay as cool as possible while still feeling like I look cute!  My outfit of choice is just a sports bra and knee-length leggings.  (Being able to be a little less covered up is one of my favorite things about working out at home.)  The perfect bra, to me, has the following qualities:

  • Cute
  • Comfortable
  • Supportive
  • Flattering
  • Doesn’t allow any “show through”
  • Has a little padding

Lucy, Lululemon, and Marika all have some nice options.  However, they average about $50 per bra!  So a few weeks ago, I decided to try out one of the cheapest options I found anywhere:  the Seamless Sports Bra on Amazon from somewhere called FineBrandShop, for only $4.75!   It had some good reviews, so at that price, it was worth a try.  I got it in black, although there are lots of pretty colors.  While I wouldn’t call it “perfect,”  to my surprise, it’s actually pretty great!

The fabric of the bra is really soft.  It reminds me, in fact, of the pieces I have from Beyond Yoga, which are about ten times the price!  It fits all of the requirements on my list—even the padding, which is hard to find in a cheap sports bra.  My only complaint is about the straps—I wish they were a little thicker and looked less like actual lingerie bra straps.  They’re not uncomfortable–I would just like the bra to look a little more athletic.  For $4.75 I can live with it, but I’d pay a few more dollars for some straps.

There is one major caveat about these bras—they come in only one size!  I guess that’s part of keeping the cost low.  These bras are definitely for the small to medium-chested.  I’m a 34B, and the fit is perfect.  I think it could work up or down a size in either direction, although if you’re much larger, I doubt these would fit or give you enough support.  But if you’re not sure, for the price, it may be worth giving it a shot.

For some reason, although these bras are all sold by the same company and come in a lot of different colors, they’re all listed on different pages!  I put links to them below by color:
