Supporting The Ladies

by Meghann on September 22, 2016

Alright. Let’s talk about sports bras.

As you may recall, before pregnancy, I didn’t really have much to say about sports bras. My perky, smaller breasts (RIP!) never really required much for support. I got away with stretchy, cheap sports bras that got the job done without much effort. Spending $$ on a sports bra?! That’s insane. Give me the $15 Target special any day (HA!).  Basically I had no idea what I was doing and took those small boobs for granted. So young. So delusional. 

As soon as I found out I was pregnant, my boobs instantly grew two sizes. They continued to grow over the next 9 months and peaked right after I gave birth and my milk came in. A few months before giving birth I met with a Moving Comfort fit specialist and was fitted for the first time with bras that were actually designed to give lift and support. I fell in love with the Juno and Jubralee and pretty much lived in those bras throughout the remainder of my pregnancy and beyond.


I assumed I would have my baby, take 6 weeks off to rest and recover, and then instantly be up and back running again. Unfortunately it wasn’t that easy. Besides trying to find the time, energy, and even the desire to get out there to run again, my boobs no longer belonged to me. These strange foreign objects were constantly full of milk, incredibly sore, and very sensitive. If I wanted to run I had to make sure I was “empty” before leaving the house or… ouch.

When I did plan everything perfectly (on the rare occasion) the Juno and Jubralee remained my go-tos. Even as I lost the baby weight, and my boobs returned to manageable proportions (still nowhere near their pre-pregnancy size!), I purchased two more in my new sizes and kept them on constant rotation. Heck, I even wore them when I wasn’t running since the adjustable front straps made them nursing friendly.

Now that Annalynn is a bit older, and I’m not quite as “full” as I once was, my running has gotten a tiny bit more manageable. I can now safely fit in early morning runs and not worry about nursing or pumping before hand. I can just get up and run, which is huge in the nursing mom world. I know my boobs will never be the same as they once were, but it’s nice to have them feel somewhat close to mine again. I’m sure there will be another big change once Annalynn stops nursing completely, but for now we have a good pattern going and I’m thankful to have great sports bras to help get the job done.


For years Moving Comfort had been the go-to resource for women’s apparel and sports bras. The amazing technology, research, and support that goes into each sports bra is 100% focused on keeping our ladies locked-in and comfortable. What has always stood out to me about the brand is they cater for every size. From a 30A to a 44G, they have you covered.

Over the summer I noticed something big, the Moving Comfort logo on my favorite sports bras was quietly being phased out. After running as a sister company of Brooks for so long, the Moving Comfort line was being fully integrated into the Brooks family. Don’t panic – the Moving Comfort team is still there. Your favorite sports bras are still there. The technology, wide size range, and amazing sense of support is still there. You just have a new logo. Nbd.

Brooks Sports Bras New Logo

And with that, the bra team at Brooks is constantly working to create the best bras in the biz, and this season is no different. Over the summer they launched 3 new sports bras to the collection.

Frontrunner Racer

The Frontrunner Racer offers a sleek, seamless style that begs to be seen, offering lots of flattering shape. Its lightweight contoured cups enhance support and provide shape and modesty. The seamless knit provides soft, chafe-free comfort!


My first immediate thought was “ohhh…. love the v-shape.” Then I got it home and put it on. Hello boobies! Umm… yeah, it’s very cleavage-licious.  So instead of a head-on boob shot, here’s a lovely photo of my back.


The Frontrunner Racer is designed for “Shallow, Semi-Full, Full” breast shapes and runs in sizes S (32), M(34), and L (36). I have a L (I’m currently a 36D) and am probably borderline for who this bra is designed for. My old smaller, perkier boobs would have loved it – my new stretched and milk-filled boobs are simply okay with it. I will say that even though I wouldn’t walk around in just the sports bra (umm… hello boobies!), I did feel well supported running in it. I’ve actually run in it multiple time and surprisingly felt great in it.


The Anyday provides all-day comfort in a t-shirt bra silhouette with convertible straps. You can finally go from work to workout with ease! The contoured cups enhance support, shape and provide complete modesty. This bra also offers convertible straps for a customizable look.   


This bra had my attention. A sports bra that looks like an everyday bra? Okay, I’ll bite. Gimme.


Again, love the v-shape in the photos, but… hello boobies. Very cleavage-licious and not exactly appropriate for wearing as-is while running around the block. Still, I felt supported and comfortable during multiple runs over the last couple of weeks (with a shirt over it). Everything was locked-in and secured. It’s also a great travel bra and really comfortable under a plain t-shirt. This bra fits by band and cupsize and goes up to a 38D.


 Are you a fuller-cupped woman who always has a difficult time finding a sports bra that fits? Embody is an underwire style with unparalleled comfort and control that allows you to feel more supported than ever before. This bra offers back-adjustable, bonded and padded straps that improve fit and enhance comfort. As if this bra wasn’t good enough, its sizing goes up to a G cup!


I was only able to test two of the three bras, and unfortunately Embody wasn’t on that list. In all honesty, this is probably the bra that would work best with my current needs, but there was one thing that stopped me from requesting it – the underwire. I’m not a fan of underwire in my regular bras and the idea of having one in a sports bra didn’t thrill me. Still, I trust the Brooks bra team and I’m kicking myself for not trying it.

Giveaway Time

As always, you don’t have to take my word for it – why not try one of the sports bras for yourself? I’m giving away one Brooks Sports Bra to a lucky Meals and Miles reader. Use the rafflecopter below to enter!

I bought one new one over the summer but the last ones were probably 2 years before that! I would definitely love to try the embody.

2 Dori September 22, 2016 at 9:13 am

The last time I bought a sports bra was…. two weeks ago! The kind I’ve been wearing since 2009 was discontinued so I check eBay to see if anyone is selling it NWT every now and then, and that’s the last time I found one. Would love to find a new favorite!

3 Claire September 22, 2016 at 9:14 am

Actually, the last time I bought a new sports bra was after your last sports bra post! I immediately went and bought a moving comfort bra and LOVE it!

4 Jessica September 22, 2016 at 9:14 am

I have a pretty solid obsession with sports bras. I am super hard to fit as 30DD/E. I have great luck with Shock Absorber and Freya. They both hold everything in place, with zero bounce. I would love to try other brands, but I am gun shy of any brand that doesn’t do band/cup sizing.

5 Christina September 22, 2016 at 9:15 am

Would love to try any of these!

6 Janine September 22, 2016 at 9:17 am

I also am a big fan of the jubralee! I would love to give one of the new styles a try!

7 Erica September 22, 2016 at 9:18 am

I am just over halfway through my pregnancy and in desperate need of a new sports bra! These look fabulous!

8 Stephanie K September 22, 2016 at 9:20 am

I bought a couple over the summer at Target actually! For the price, I was shocked at how much I actually liked them

9 KellyE. September 22, 2016 at 9:23 am

It’s been way too long now. That last time I bought a sports bra was probably two years ago!

10 kelly p September 22, 2016 at 9:29 am

typically i wear champion sprots bras from targets, but i’d love to try a higher quality one.

11 Wendy September 22, 2016 at 9:32 am

I bought a new sports bra just last week-a strappy one for barre class from Victoria’s Secret-it was only $20!

12 Kelcy September 22, 2016 at 9:35 am

I bought some target ones over the summer but I usually keep an eye out for a new bra with a lot of support when i’m about to run a big marathon. I have the Chicago marathon next month so i’ve started keeping an eye out for some new gear to get be through the race.

13 Allison September 22, 2016 at 9:38 am

I recently purchased a few sports bras about 2 months ago. My previous bras had not been replaced since I quit nursing my middle child and she is 6, so it had been a minute!! Ha! I am smaller chested (36B), so I think the first 2 you mentioned would work great for me 🙂

14 april September 22, 2016 at 9:39 am

So long ago that I can’t remember!

15 Sarah Meade September 22, 2016 at 9:44 am

LOVE Moving Comfort bras! Thanks for the update on their transition with Brooks–wasn’t aware!

16 Nikki September 22, 2016 at 9:44 am

I really need to pay more attention to my running bras! I keep them for way too long and buy the cheap ones and double up. I would love to try a quality sports bra!

17 Mo September 22, 2016 at 9:44 am

What perfect timing – I just learned I’m pregnant. Would love to try one of these!

18 Katie September 22, 2016 at 9:45 am

I love my Juno bra and would like to try the new one.

19 Rachel R. September 22, 2016 at 9:47 am

I’d love to try one of these sports bras! Last time I bought a new bra wasn’t all that long ago – it was a really cheap one I found on sale at Ross.

20 Katie September 22, 2016 at 9:48 am

I bought a new sports bra about 6 months ago! I’m in dire need for a new one but I HATE shopping for them!!

21 Ashley September 22, 2016 at 9:49 am

Was this post sponsored? That definitely was not clear. Also, you really should do a post on how you lost your baby weight!

22 Erica September 22, 2016 at 9:50 am

I love Moving Comfort. I’ll definitely have to check out these new bras. Babies sure do change things in that department. Sadly, having #2 brings even more changes!

23 Traci September 22, 2016 at 9:50 am

I struggle to find a running bra that is comfortable and fits well without chaffing. Thanks for the review, might give the Embody a try.

24 Megan Edlefsen September 22, 2016 at 9:51 am

I’m due in 6 weeks with my first and can totally relate to everything you’ve said about fitting your old versus new chest! I was always able to go the cheap route (Old Navy and Ross were go tos!) but I have a feeling that I’m going to need some more support in the coming months and years of running. Thanks for the great recommendations!

25 Ashley September 22, 2016 at 9:52 am

I bought my first moving comfort sports bra this summer. I like it for working out and everyday use.

26 Selin September 22, 2016 at 9:53 am

I got my “newest” sports bra last year, during my pregnancy. I definitely need a new one.

27 Alicia Hansen September 22, 2016 at 9:55 am

I purchased a new sports bra earlier this spring/summer as I entered my second trimester. I couldn’t squeeze into my old ones anymore!

28 Stephanie September 22, 2016 at 9:57 am

I ordered an Elomi sports bra off Amazon last year bc I’m busty and need good support, but hated it. Before that, I haven’t bought new sports bras before I got pregnant with my last baby so 2+ years? I need to try that Embody Bra!

29 Sarah Macon September 22, 2016 at 9:59 am

Laughing because the last one I bought was a Target cheap one right after I had my 2nd!

30 Julie September 22, 2016 at 10:00 am

Hi, Meghann! I think you mean “delusional,” not “disillusional.” Hope you don’t mind the correction!

31 Meghann September 22, 2016 at 10:39 am

Whoops! thank you for letting me know! Appreciate it!

32 Rachel September 22, 2016 at 10:02 am

I love the Brooks/Moving comfort brands! The fiona is the most comfy high impact sports bra I’ve had. I’ve been doing a lot more running lately so having to wash my bra more frequently and worried it’s going to wear out… I would love to win another bra to keep in rotation so I’m not choosing between wearing old vs. wearing stinky 🙂

33 Jaime September 22, 2016 at 10:03 am

I’m a new mom that just started running again and I’m in desperate need of a new appropriate bars!

34 Brandy September 22, 2016 at 10:04 am

It has been about 3 months.

35 Michele September 22, 2016 at 10:08 am

I have 6 of the same bra, i bought the most recent one last moth. I’m so scared that they’ll discontinue it! So I keep working on my lifetime supply of this bra. I never thought about my breasts changing once I have children tho, so maybe I should hold back on buying any more – I won’t have these little boobs forever!

36 Marybeth September 22, 2016 at 10:10 am

I haven’t bought a new sports bra in at least 2 years, and mine are all Target!

37 Carol September 22, 2016 at 10:19 am

Love the Embody!

38 Kirsten September 22, 2016 at 10:23 am

The last time I purchased a sports bra was probably 6 years ago ?

39 erin September 22, 2016 at 10:27 am

Ummmmmm, I’m a little ashamed to say I don’t even remember, too long obviously!

40 Kerri September 22, 2016 at 10:30 am

The last time was a few weeks ago, from Target! They have cute styles, but I hate the light padding that’s removable. If it’s going to be included, stitch it in. It comes out in the wash every time!

41 Karen September 22, 2016 at 10:31 am

I’m about to buy a Juno online…I have an almost 1 year old and don’t understand How I didn’t know about this “nursing sports bra” before today!

42 Allison W. September 22, 2016 at 10:34 am

I’m still rocking the target specials! Definitely needing an upgrade and these are cute!

43 Frannie September 22, 2016 at 10:34 am

I purchased a new sports bra at the beginning on my half training this summer. It’s a Juno, which is my go-to. I’m interested to see how the “cleavage” bras work since I’m a 38D and while I love the Juno, it can chafe a little since it covers so much land.

44 Lindsay Edwards September 22, 2016 at 10:38 am

I think I bought one a few months ago from Victoria’s Secret. I wear a 34A so I really don’t need too much support but I love adjustable straps so I can control the tightness on my shoulders.

45 Leigh September 22, 2016 at 10:39 am

I bought two Brooks bras in the spring when my newly pregnant ladies got HUGE overnight. I’m told it gets worse when I’m nursing, then better, so trying to hold off on buying anymore until things stop changing…?

46 Meghann September 22, 2016 at 10:43 am

The struggle is real! I changed sizes three times during pregnancy! I told myself to keep waiting, but they kept changing and it just became too much not to go up a size. I would not recommend buying immediately after giving birth, instead waiting about 6 weeks and then getting fitted. Of course, if you plan to nurse it will continue to go up and down until you stop nursing. Good luck!

47 Jessica September 22, 2016 at 8:54 pm

Actually, if there is anything I could do over in my pregnancy, it would be to buy comfortable supportive bras as often as my size changed. A good bra changes the way I look and carry myself, and I needed every ounce of physical self esteem I could muster! Also, a supportive bra can help ease the lasting effects of the rapid size changes.

48 Meghan September 22, 2016 at 10:50 am

Um…. I really have no idea. Oh, I got one on sale at Kohls a couple months back.

49 Coree September 22, 2016 at 10:51 am

I had a baby a little after you did, and I need a new bra! I finally went and got fitted appropriately, so now I need to buy one!

50 Jennifer D. September 22, 2016 at 10:59 am

I bought one about 6 months ago. Despite it being my size – it didn’t fit! So I’m still using my old ones.

51 Leigh September 22, 2016 at 11:00 am

I bought two from Moving Comfort just a couple months ago as they went on sale and I love them! I also bought a variety of sizes while I was pregnant/nursing. Love them!

52 Alyssa September 22, 2016 at 11:02 am

I haven’t bought a new sports bra in awhile 🙁 As someone who is recently pregnant this needs to change and I would love to try one of these!

53 Eliza September 22, 2016 at 11:05 am

I LOVE Moving Comfort bras! I just had a baby a few months ago & have just started running again so it’s definitely time for a few one 🙂

54 Laura September 22, 2016 at 11:07 am

These bras are so nice and look like they give great support! I would love to try the Frontrunner Racer Sports Bra!

55 Caroline September 22, 2016 at 11:12 am

I cannot even remember the last time I bought a sports bra – although it’s not for lack of trying! I was a G cup pre-pregnancy and had the hardest time with bras. Now I’m a few weeks postpartum – and nursing – so I’m going to look into the Embody.

56 Haley September 22, 2016 at 11:14 am

Ohhhh sports bras. I’m like you, I was oblivious with my perky B cups… and ran in whatever. Then I got pregnant. Breastfed. Has my boobs to myself for 2 months. Got pregnant again. Haha. So I feel like I’m ALWAYS buying new sports bras these days!!

57 stacy September 22, 2016 at 11:18 am

The Last time I purchased a sports bra with after my baby was born. I needed to get nursing sports Bras.

58 Sarah September 22, 2016 at 11:19 am

Definitely in the market for some new sports bras–I will be looking into these!

59 Debra September 22, 2016 at 11:20 am

The last time I purchased a sports bra was after my first pregnancy, so 2.5 years ago. I’m due for a couple of new ones since my current bras don’t support as well as they used to.

60 Whitney September 22, 2016 at 11:21 am

I can’t remember the last time I purchased a new sports bra. Yikes!

61 Ellen September 22, 2016 at 11:23 am

I bought a new Juno about 6 months ago. Moving Comfort/Brooks sports bras are my favorite so I’d love to try out some of the new styles.

62 Holly September 22, 2016 at 11:25 am

I just had my 2nd daughter 6 months ago and am still trying to figure out what size i need! I’m still breastfeeding and did buy a sports bra a few months ago, but I know I will need a new one when we wean next year….

63 Kate M. September 22, 2016 at 11:25 am

I just bought a new sports bra last week, but it was a cheap one from target so it doesn’t quite count

64 Anna September 22, 2016 at 11:29 am

I didn’t even purchase the last sport bra I got. My sister works in college sports and has a discount with Adidas. So she bought me a new buy for my birthday last year. It is similar to the moving comfort ones with the adjustable straps in the front which I just love.

65 Kim T September 22, 2016 at 11:30 am

I’ve used the Maia for years and love it!

66 Julianne September 22, 2016 at 11:31 am

I think the last time I bought a new sports bra was back in the winter time. I love Lululemon bras but they’re so $$$!!!

67 Jen September 22, 2016 at 11:40 am

Its been over a year since i purchased a new sports bra. I should try these but the price has kept me away

68 Meg Houle September 22, 2016 at 11:41 am

I bought a new VS sports bra a month or so ago. 6 months pregnant and I agree- my boobs are ridiculous! I need a juno!

69 brittney September 22, 2016 at 11:45 am

I’m always looking for supportive sports bras- I often have to wear two! I’m gonna have to try that 3rd one out!

70 Dana September 22, 2016 at 11:47 am

I’m embarrassed to say it’s been at least a couple of years.

71 Allison September 22, 2016 at 11:49 am

Probably a few months ago, but I need some new ones.

72 Erin September 22, 2016 at 11:52 am

I haven’t bought a new sports bra since before I had my daughter two years ago! I could use a new one.

73 Meghan September 22, 2016 at 11:54 am

New nurse here!! I would love to try the embody!????????

74 Sarah Lindsey September 22, 2016 at 11:55 am

I want to try the Juno so bad!!!

75 Dana W September 22, 2016 at 11:55 am

Injuries and life have kept me from running for a while, so I haven’t bought a new sports bra in probably 3 years. Now that I’m getting back into it I would love to try one of these!

76 Charlotte Brown September 22, 2016 at 11:56 am

It’s been over a year since I bought one. I definitely need some new ones!

77 Courtney September 22, 2016 at 12:00 pm

I’m always in the market for a good sports bra! I have several in a rotation that I use for running, but I always find them lacking in some way. I just need to go and get a good one at a specialty or running store! I’m sure the girls would thank me! 🙂

Not that long ago actually! I’ve bought more sports bras since being pregnant/nursing and now pregnant again than I have since high school!

79 Carrie L September 22, 2016 at 12:09 pm

I’m definitely a once a year, stock up on my faves kind of girl. Would love to try one of these out!

80 Rebecca September 22, 2016 at 12:13 pm

I can’t even remember the last time I bought a new sports bra. The C9 seamless ones at Target have served me pretty well so far, but I could probably use an upgrade! The Frontrunner Racer looks like it would suit my needs, I’d love to try that one.

81 Jessica C September 22, 2016 at 12:22 pm

I purchased a couple at the beginning of August. I have been trying to replace my old ones slowly as they got pretty worn out!

82 Elisabeth September 22, 2016 at 12:28 pm

It’s been a bit too long since I bought my last sports bra…I’ve been wanting to try the Juno for awhile, actually.

83 Lauren September 22, 2016 at 12:30 pm

I literally have two sports bras – last one I purchased I think was from Old Navy a few months ago? Haha.

84 Kristy September 22, 2016 at 12:39 pm

The last time I bought a sports bra was in April and I desperately need a new one!

85 Erin September 22, 2016 at 12:43 pm

It has been years since I have bought a sports bra. The last one I bought was from Victoria’s Secret because I had a coupon. I was not expecting a lot from it but it is a great bra.

86 Abbie September 22, 2016 at 12:46 pm

Good timing with this post! I have a 5 week old baby and I cannot find a sports bra with adequate support. Thanks for sharing your input on these!!

87 Sarah September 22, 2016 at 12:53 pm

Sadly it has been well over a year since I have bought a new sports bra… I need to change that!

88 Hanne September 22, 2016 at 12:53 pm

The last time was a few weeks after I gave birth, for obvious reasons, so… almost 15 months ago now!

89 Kati September 22, 2016 at 12:53 pm

I’ve been buying a lot of sports bras lately! My boobs have grown 3+ cup sizes during pregnancy, so it has been an adventure to find ones that fit and are comfortable. I love your thoughts on the new Brooks bras, as I will be searching for some in the next few months after my milk supply evens out.

90 Patty September 22, 2016 at 12:56 pm

I finally bought one new sports bra this summer, after having my others for way too long! Have yet to find the perfect one

91 Jessica September 22, 2016 at 12:59 pm

It’s been SO LONG since I bought a new sports bra (years probably) and I’m in desperate need! I had my baby boy the same day you had Annalynn, so I am right there in the same boobie-boat with ya, girl! 🙂

92 Hillary September 22, 2016 at 1:01 pm

At least a year ago..

93 Kaelin September 22, 2016 at 1:04 pm

Honestly, I can’t remember. I am like the OLD you – I’d rather buy whats on sale and save my money for cuter workout tops and shoes 🙂

94 Tiff Gregory September 22, 2016 at 1:08 pm

I bought a VS bra in the spring to take advantage of that sale where you got a pair of workout pants for free! Before that I splurged on a Juno from Moving Comfort after my daughter was born and I needed more support!

95 melissa September 22, 2016 at 1:11 pm

The last time Zulily had a brooks sale 😉

96 Lauren B September 22, 2016 at 1:15 pm

Last time VSX had a sale….but I would love to try a brooks bra!

97 Jess Green September 22, 2016 at 1:25 pm

It’s been several years since I’ve bought a new sports bra…and all but one of mine are from Target! Probably time for an upgrade 🙂

98 Kandi September 22, 2016 at 1:26 pm

I bought two moving comfort bras last December when I was pregnant with #2. I love them!

99 Kim September 22, 2016 at 1:30 pm

I have yet to find something that has worked for me post baby! Maybe this is it!

100 Sara September 22, 2016 at 1:40 pm

Would love to try the Anyday-I LOVE the idea of being able to wear my post-work workout gear to the office!

102 ErikaMC September 22, 2016 at 1:56 pm

I bought 2 new sports bras in August 2015 and then got pregnant in September so I haven’t gotten to wear them much. I’m always on the look out for good bras though and have read a lot of good reviews on these so I should check them out.

103 Chatelaine Barrette September 22, 2016 at 1:56 pm

Probably within the last 8 months…….. I LOVE my moving comfort bras and have only purchased Juno and Maia bras for the last 6+ years. I haven’t strayed from those to models…. Although I do have some older Fiona bras I lounge in………. LOVE them soooo much and I’m a bigger boobed girl so these work amazingly well.

104 Adina September 22, 2016 at 1:58 pm

I’m a huge fan of the Juno. I’m currently nursing and trying to get back into shape and this is wonderful!

105 Britton September 22, 2016 at 2:08 pm

I have been in your exact same position! I went from a 36C to a 38DD through pregnancy and nursing. I am now a 36D and I absolutely love Moving Comfort! Its all I wear! I cant say enough good things about their product!

106 Jill September 22, 2016 at 2:08 pm

I’m not kidding, the last time I bought a new sports bra was in 2006 – 10 years ago! I bought two CW-X brand. I run about 4 days a week and have had two kids since then; running through both pregnancies and nursing! So hey, I guess that brand really stands the test of time 🙂 Needless to say, I would love a new sports bra.

107 em September 22, 2016 at 2:19 pm

I am cheap too and go with the Target brand 🙂 Couldn’t tell you the last time I bought one!

108 Tracy September 22, 2016 at 2:19 pm

It’s been a few years since I purchased a sports bra.

I love the anyday style!! Also totally with you on underwire. I was extremely large growing up and 6 years ago I had a reduction.

Now that I am starting to get more active, thanks to #ProjectStart by Women’s Running Magazine promo #PSYouGotThis I would love to wear the proper under garments!

Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

I’m a cheap, Target brand sports bra wearer right now. I’m sure once I try good sports bras I’ll never be able to go back!

110 Sandra Laflamme September 22, 2016 at 2:26 pm

I just recently bought a great sports bra. My boobs have definitely change since babies. Love the looks of these Brooks ones!

112 Michelle H. September 22, 2016 at 2:39 pm

I think around Christmas last year (gotta love those sales!)

113 Nadine September 22, 2016 at 2:46 pm

Bought a bunch while I was pregnant–inexpensive. But I hear you mama, definitely need something else for these BF boobies! Just about 7 weeks in and this offer couldn’t have come at a better time. Definitely going to check out the options–do you know what stores in the Tampa area sell Brooks so I can try on vs. ordering and having to return? Thanks!

114 Lauren September 22, 2016 at 2:46 pm

The last time I bought a new sports bra was 5+ years ago, and now I have a six-month-old baby so let’s just say it’s a pretty desperate situation over here!

115 Raychel September 22, 2016 at 2:49 pm

I am a new nursing mom as well and currently have ONE (out of probably 8) bra where nothing actually moves when I’m running :O I purchased it about 5 months pp

116 Leigh Anne September 22, 2016 at 2:52 pm

I was always big-chested but even those sports bras don’t work for running right now with nursing. It’s a constant battle to find one that works! I have bought a few PP (daughter is 7 months) but none that I love. Would love to try a Brooks one!

117 Mary September 22, 2016 at 2:56 pm

I really want to try the Front Runner! I think that one is super cute!

A couple of months ago at Target!

121 Katie September 22, 2016 at 3:20 pm

It’s been forever! I’d love to give a new one a try!

122 Tara September 22, 2016 at 3:29 pm

All of my go-to’s are from target and its probably been at least 2 years since I have had a brand new one!

123 Haley B September 22, 2016 at 3:38 pm

It’s been a while!! I too am like you pre-pregnancy and just go with what is cheapest. My favorite sports bra (gifted) is from Victoria’s Secret, very supportive. I love the frontrunner, looks awesome!

124 Brandi September 22, 2016 at 3:38 pm

The last sports bra I bought was Champuon from Target. But I would live to try the frontrunner reviewed here. I love the cut and fabric.

125 EB @ Running on E September 22, 2016 at 3:38 pm

126 Heather Oswald September 22, 2016 at 3:42 pm

Oh my, it has been way too long I’m sure. I bought one without trying it on last year but I hate it as it’s too confining so I wear the old ones. 🙁

127 Lindsay Y September 22, 2016 at 3:45 pm

I would love to go from work to a run without having to change my bra!

128 Linds September 22, 2016 at 3:46 pm

The anyday looks awesome!

129 Lindsay September 22, 2016 at 3:47 pm

I bought one a couple of weeks ago because it was on sale for $4 at Walmart. Sadly most of my others only cost a few more dollars than that. I have never been able to justify spending the money on a good one.

130 Allison September 22, 2016 at 3:56 pm

The last time I purchases a sports bra was maybe 6 months ago… at Target! Probably time for a repurchase or an upgrade 🙂

131 Sara September 22, 2016 at 4:05 pm

I bought a Moving Comfort Juno when I was a few weeks postpartum, because I didn’t fit in any of my Saucony Curve Crusaders. It is starting to be a tad big on me and I can semi fit into my old ones. I plan to start weaning my son soon, so I’m waiting to see where the girls go after that. I’ve always been well endowed and right now am pretty similar to my pre-baby boobs in size. Not look.

132 Jill S September 22, 2016 at 4:11 pm

I just bought a new cute strappy sports bra a couple weeks ago from Target. I like it and it works for Crossfit. I would love to try one of these Moving Comfort bras for running. Thanks.

133 Nicole in STL September 22, 2016 at 4:15 pm

Hmmm about 9 months ago right after I had my baby!

134 Anna L September 22, 2016 at 4:15 pm

Pregnancy changed the girls forever. I would love to try the more supportive bras!

135 Jennifer Warren September 22, 2016 at 4:18 pm

I don’t remember the last time I bought a sports bra. I usually get the Knockout from VS whenever they have a sale.

136 Kim September 22, 2016 at 4:20 pm

Last time I bought a sports bra was about a month ago on clearance at Target. But I need something with better quality that won’t make my post breastfeeding chest look so saggy!

137 Caitlin St. James September 22, 2016 at 4:34 pm

I’m a group fitness instructor and am always looking for sports bras that hold up to a lot of activity and a lot of washing while also looking good under a variety of tops. It looks like these would fit the bill perfectly!

138 Britt September 22, 2016 at 5:05 pm

These are so pretty!

139 Lara September 22, 2016 at 5:40 pm

I last bought a sportsbra about 6 months ago. I am currently 22 weeks pregnant and up to a 32I, I can’t imagine what I’m going to look like after my milk comes in!

140 Kelly September 22, 2016 at 5:50 pm

I bought a bra 2 weeks ago…strappy and cute 🙂

141 Monica September 22, 2016 at 6:12 pm

I really can’t remember the last time I bought a new sports bra…maybe last summer?!? But I would love to try a Moving Comfort/Brooks sports bra.

142 Amanda September 22, 2016 at 6:29 pm

Suprisingly…2 weeks ago. Hadn’t before then in about 5 years…

143 Angie September 22, 2016 at 6:39 pm

It’s been over a year since I bought my last sports bra – I sure could use one!

144 Cara September 22, 2016 at 6:49 pm

I need a new sports bra. Post baby boobs are heavy!

145 Bethany September 22, 2016 at 7:00 pm

I bought a new one last week. Am pregnant so my girls don’t fit my old bras anymore!

146 Kristi H September 22, 2016 at 7:31 pm

Too long ago

147 Lisa September 22, 2016 at 8:06 pm

I’ve bought them for my teens but not myself!

148 Liz September 22, 2016 at 8:09 pm

Far too long ago! Got a moving comfort one in March but the other ones in rotation are way too old!

149 Katie B September 22, 2016 at 8:19 pm

I got an Old Navy one a few months ago…but a bit more support would be nice to have!

150 Haley September 22, 2016 at 8:21 pm

I need new bras bad!

151 Eve September 22, 2016 at 8:28 pm

I got away with a few bigger-than-my old size ones while training for a marathon as a nursing mom. After my toddler weaned I went out and bought new ones once my size regulated.

152 Katie September 22, 2016 at 8:28 pm

I stocked up during the last Victoria’s Secret semi-annual sale. Can never have too many good sports bras!

153 Cate September 22, 2016 at 8:33 pm

I usually buy two of the same Berlei underwire bras every year in the after Christmas sales! Would love to branch out and try some different ones though, and Brooks ones might just fit the bill!!

154 Kristi September 22, 2016 at 8:41 pm

The last time I bought a sports bra was about a year ago. I bought a couple that were on sale at Target. Those C9 bras work just fine for me!

155 Abby Burgess September 22, 2016 at 9:17 pm

I can’t remember the last time I bought a new bra but the last one I bought was moving comfort and I absolutely love it! With just having a new baby I know I will be needing a new one to accommodate the new body.

156 Kara T September 22, 2016 at 9:37 pm

I bought new sports bras after I stopped nursing. They were great until shortly after I got pregnant again and they became too small! I’d love some new ones!

157 TENN September 22, 2016 at 9:42 pm

A few years ago. I just took a year and a half off from running. Now I am back running. It may be time for some new ones.

158 Nicole L September 22, 2016 at 10:02 pm

I purchased a new sports bra a couple of months after having my son. My old ones weren’t supporting the breastfeeding boobs anymore.

159 Emily S September 22, 2016 at 10:04 pm

It’s been a few years for me! I recently stopped nursing, so things have changed again. I’m probably due for a new one.

160 Alex M September 22, 2016 at 10:43 pm

I have a 5 month old and am currently breastfeeding so I feel your pain! I’ve always heard such awesome things about Moving Comfort bras, as a well-endowed mama it’d be nice to finally try one!

161 Marge September 22, 2016 at 10:51 pm

I bought one a postpartum bra a year ago from target, it isnt terrible, but definitely not a great performance piece of athletic wear.

162 Laura September 22, 2016 at 10:53 pm

I bought 2 cheap new sports bras 6 or 7 months ago during my pregnancy. I am still wearing them, although they are slowly getting bigger. I would love to check my size again and get a new one!

163 Sarah September 22, 2016 at 11:02 pm

Sadly… My last sports bra was a gift! I have such a hard time buying expensive sports bras even though I know they must be 100 times better. Like you, I was spoiled by the target specials before my daughter. Now everything is different, but I still can’t wrap my head around this change. Silly but true 🙂

164 melanie September 22, 2016 at 11:07 pm

It’s been several years since I purchased a new sports bra, so would love to try out a new one!

165 TheDimpledRunner September 22, 2016 at 11:21 pm

LOVE THIS POST!!! I love workout wear! Last time I bought a sports bra would be a few months ago. My only good one was bought right after having my son and my chest was huge. After more than a year later they are not so big but still need support so I got a new bra.

166 Blair September 22, 2016 at 11:24 pm

Yikes….it’s probably been over a year since I bought a new sports bra!

167 Alissa September 23, 2016 at 6:16 am

Got a new one this summer, but good definitely use a new sports bra

168 Cassandra September 23, 2016 at 6:23 am

I am definitely fall in the purchaser of Target sports bra category but thankfully I have a few GOOD ones that are my go-tos for running with the extra prenatal/postnatal boobage! These bras look amazing, something I’d be caught wearing all day long not just for workouts ?

169 Jenna September 23, 2016 at 6:26 am

It has been too long. Like 8 months. Too too long. Partly due to having a bunch of them. I am phasing some out and it is about time to buy some more!

170 Emily September 23, 2016 at 6:34 am

Way too long ago! At least two years! Thanks for the chance to win a new one! 🙂

171 Liz September 23, 2016 at 6:41 am

I can’t even remember the last time I bought a new sports bra. I’m currently 3 weeks post delivery though and could certainly use one for when I get cleared to start running again.

172 Allie September 23, 2016 at 6:54 am

The last sports bra I bought was when I was pregnant 3 years ago. I loved the Moving Comfort bras with the velcro straps. It was perfect for nursing!

173 Nikki September 23, 2016 at 7:08 am

I bought one from Forever 21 this summer. I’m 31. Haha

174 Amie September 23, 2016 at 7:11 am

I bought 2 this week to try on at home, but sadly they are not going to work out.

175 Jen September 23, 2016 at 7:16 am

I used to go YEARS without buying new sports bras but am now a tiny bit better about that 😉 The last time I bought one was in December, but it was CHEAP; I’ve been really wanting to invest in some quality bras lately.

176 Meredith September 23, 2016 at 7:23 am

I just bought one at Target on sale this week! I would love to try the Anyday one though!

177 Katie September 23, 2016 at 7:36 am

I actually just order two new ones from Athleta since the last time before that was about 3 years ago.. OOPS!

I just bought a new moving comfort bra. After baby #2 nothing fits.

182 Stephanie @ My Freckled Life September 23, 2016 at 8:25 am

Oh man, this was totally a post after my own heart! I had the EXACT same problem when I got pregnant – I went up 2 sizes just in pregnancy, and another once I started nursing. The girls were out. of. control! I ended up purchasing a few cheap but fairly supportive ones so that I could go back to working out without feeling SUPER uncomfortable.

We just recently stopped nursing and things are finally settling down to their new “normal”, so I would love to purchase some new sports bras that reflect my current needs! Thank you for sharing your story and your recommendations, because I can 100% relate!

I bought two of the moving comfort bras during pregnancy as well and just rotated them for workouts, they were great! Happily, I’m able to wear my old sports bras again!

191 Laura September 23, 2016 at 10:33 am

Honestly, I am so bad! I don’t think I have bought new sports bras in a really long time. I used to wear Target racerbacks all the time and still do (even the old one). I have bought a few Victoria Sport ones that I like but I always neglect the ladies. So bad!

192 sarah September 23, 2016 at 11:04 am

Last one I purchased was about 2 years ago after my 1st daughter was born and it was the Juno – I loved it and would love another one !

193 Jovanna Pugh September 23, 2016 at 11:35 am

The Juno is also one of my favorites. I’m overdue for a new one!

maybe a year ago at tj max?? i could really use a new one (or a few!) that are high quality/actually fit well 🙂

199 Haley September 23, 2016 at 1:28 pm

I bought a few Rebound Racers from Moving Comfort’s website right after Harrison was born. After two years of breastfeeding, I think I’m finally ready to drop back down to a 36D instead of the DD I have been running with since coming back from the pregnancy. I do love the new styles Brooks is coming out with. So much flashier than the MC versions from a few years back.

I bought a new sports bra earlier this year, post-baby. At 10 months postpartum it is still the only one I have that’s wearable right now. Happy to be able to breast feed but kind of looking forward to boobs that are more like grapefruits than watermelon…

201 Juli D. September 23, 2016 at 1:54 pm

6 months ago? I just got a cheap Old Navy one. I could use an upgrade!

202 Lily September 23, 2016 at 2:51 pm

203 Anne Weber-Falk September 23, 2016 at 2:56 pm

Oh my goodness it’s been years. A lot of years. I could never find one that worked for me. I’m hoping this line will do the trick for this boobalicious woman.

I would love to try one!

right after I had my daughter-I bought a Juno!-but now it’s time to get another because, as you know, the girls have changed quite a bit!

230 Lindsay September 25, 2016 at 8:43 am

I bought a few target sports bras this summer but none of them are winners… as someone with a lot of support needed, it’s definitely a struggle to find the bra that is functional and comfortable. i’d love to try the brooks styles!

I am 37 weeks pregnant, and still working out every day! This is the first time in my life that I have had boobs and wow… it’s different! It has been about 2 years since I bought a sports bra, from Old Navy. I think I need something a little more high quality for “the girls”!

236 Rebecca C September 26, 2016 at 12:31 pm

I haven’t bought one in awhile but a few years back I bought a ton and there is a large rotation so hopefully I’m not wearing them out very quickly. I like the idea of an everyday bra that can do the job of a sports bra if needed.

237 Diana September 26, 2016 at 1:06 pm

The Moving Comfort Fiona is my favorite sports bra! For me, it’s so key that it has hooks in the back – maybe it’s just me, but the ones that you have to pull off over your head always leave me feeling like I’m going to dislocate a shoulder, especially when I’m trying to take it off after a sweaty workout!

I think it has been over a year since I bought a sports bra. I love the look of the front-runner racer.

Definitely would go for the full coverage. And it’s been about a year!

I just bought a new bra to start running again after giving birth — but it’s terrible! Nursing boobs are no joke.

I purchased a sports bra on clearance at Old Navy a few months ago…but I have started running and these girls need some more serious support!

I bought a cute Lululemon sports bra early summer and while it holds up for vinyasa yoga classes, it doesn’t make the running cut. I would love to try Moving Comfort and get some support!

These look awesome! I last bought a new sports bra earlier this year after wearing the same one for 10+ years, and I was astonished by how fancy they are these days, ha!
