Let’s face it: If you’ve got big boobs, you walk through life with certain limitations. You see a spaghetti strap dress and know there is no way you can go bra-free. You try on a string bikini, only to discover an extra-large barely covers your girls. And when it comes to running? Yep, we’ve all doubled up on sports bras before to get the job done.
While the athleisure world is creating athletic bras that are sexier than ever, they aren’t the most, um, supportive for us gals with DDs. Which is why I took notice of Lululemon’s new Enlite Bra that took a team of female engineers more than two years to develop and finally dropped this month. Available in more than 20 sizes (32B-38DD), the bra was created to both endure a high-performance work out and be comfortable. What a novel idea!
Well, I tried out the Enlite for myself and have to say the bra is a game changer. It has built in cups that support and also somehow soften the bounce when you’re running or jumping around—no more boobs spring up to your chin and down to your belly button while you get your workout in! The criss-cross back design and hook-and-eye closure system are also a breath fresh air in that they evenly distribute weight and allow for a wide opening—no more almost dislocating my shoulder to wedge myself into a sports bra! And last but not least: The fabric. Sweet Jesus, it’s soft as butter and sweat wicking and has free-cut edges—no more chafing!
Priced at $98, the Enlite is, well, pricey. But considering you probably typically spend $20 to $30 on bras that you either double up or end up hating, this one is worth the investment for people who are regularly running or enduring high-octane workouts. Or for anyone with big boobs who just prefers wearing athleisure wear to the grocery store and beyond. We hear you and thankfully, so did Lululemon.
