Get you a Handful! Sports bra GIVEAWAY!

I got my first Handful bra about 6 or 7 months ago.  I fell in love.  It is soo comfortable.  I wear it for nearly EVERYTHING.  I run in it, cross train, sleep, work, and just about everything else, okay I take it off to shower.  This bra to me is the shiznit. My cute Victoria's Secret bras are gathering dust in the closet.  After not wearing underwire bras for so long while nursing my children going back to them seemed really uncomfortable, not to mention they didn't fit like they did before kids. :(

I know it isn't the ideal running bra for everyone, but it is great for girls with not so large chest endowments like myself.   I have a friend who wears them for everything but running and she is more like a C cup.  Up until last week I had the bra in every color except cocoa, thanks to Jody at Handful now I have it and one lucky winner will get to pick the bra color of their choice!  Yay! 

To me the bra is not only functional, it is flattering and helps gives a little shape and a little boost to the girls. If you don't like the padding, just take it out.  It also comes with it's very own mesh bag to wash it in.  A fun little useful bonus with the bra.

Here is what they have to say about the bra:
It's not just another ordinary sports bra, but the first and only Handful Bra made to fit your style in and out of the gym.  It conceals from warm-up to cool-down, so you've got one (actually two) less things to worry about.  And it looks terrific on its own or under your sassiest shirt to keep you at the top of your game 24/7.

Here is the sizing info:
                                        Sizes:
                                      32A - 32C+ = X-Small
                                 34A - 34C+ = Small
                                     36A - 36C+ = Medium
                                 38A - 38C+ = Large
 So as you can see it is not for the well endowed, but more a member of the lacking in the chest department type of runner, though if I had C's I would think mine were pretty huge!  They also as a bonus conceal the nipple action, which I find a great bonus. I think they are great for flattering the flatter chest and giving a boost to the B and C cup.
 
The back has really  cute criss cross straps
                       The front.  This bra looks cute under nearly every shirt, except maybe a strapless or a halter top. Yes I cut my head off, it has been a long day and I look like crap and sometimes I am a little vain.
                                  Colors:
                         Black      White
                         Nude      Cocoa
                                  Pink
My favorite color oddly is the pink one.  I have avoided pink my whole life, then I had a little girl and I have started to love pink.  :)  If they ever add other colors to the line I will happily add them to my collection!


Also a little bonus right now, if you order 2 or more bras from their website in the month of July you can get 25% off with the code SUMMER11.  This makes them only $30 a piece which my seem a little pricey if you are cheap, but when I compare that to how much i used to spend on bras at Victoria's Secret it is a great deal.  They are also having a contest right now where one lucky person can win a bra in every color.  So if you don't win here there are other ways to score big!

  2. I'd probably go for the cocoa color because I'm pretty sure that's the only color I don't own a bra in :)

  9. I like the pink one I am a pink girl through and through. I love the way the straps are in the back. It looks like it would not be to tight but snug enough around my rib cage.

  11. I would probably be boring and go with the white. I am (very) small chested and run about 60 miles a week and am still searching for the right running bra. This one seems flattering, comfortable and supportive, so I definitely want to try it! :)

  52. I like the pink! I was never into pink, but now that I have 2 boys I feel the need to feel a little more girlie myself. Like you, I can no longer stand the underwire bras after wearing nursing bras for so long. I'd like something a little less sports bra-like to wear everyday. This seems perfect!
