Can you believe it? It’s the last day of Back to Basics Week! Man, it went by fast. But we’re going out with a bang, a Sturdy Girl Sports type bang! Which, in case you’re not familiar with them, is one heck of an awesome bang. Sturdy Girl Sports, which designs fashion-inspired, high-impact sports bras and coordinating fitness apparel, is giving away a super cool snake- or leopard-print bra and matching compression shorts that will get your friends talking!
We love Sturdy Girl Sports gear for a couple of reasons. First, most pullover style sports bras are sized small, medium or large, which doesn’t work if you are full-chested but smaller in the rib cage. However, Sturdy Girl Sports bras are band/cup-sized so that you can get an exact fit for increased support. Second, without hooks and closures, there is nothing to rub or abrade your skin—you know how much we hate chafing! And third, these bras look more like a top than an undergarment bra. (Not to mention that Runner’s World recently named them Best New Sports Bra and that the bras combine high-wicking spacer fabric with an inner hidden nipple cover to completely eliminate the appearance of “headlights” when the temp drops. Bonus.)
Then there’s the Sturdy Girl compression shorts. These will make your junk in the trunk happy, as they are comfortable and practical with soft silicon grippers along the inside waistband to ensure they stay put and a nifty hidden pocket on the outer right hip for your iPod, money or an energy gel. Just what an FBG needs!
So who’s ready to win these two fab pieces? Leave a comment below with the No. 1 thing you look for in a sports bra, and we’ll select a random U.S. reader to win in about a week. Winners will be notified by email and in the comments. Oh, and while it’s not required, you should go check out Sturdy Girl Sports on Facebook, too!
